Schiff is just figuring out the game now. For a smart guy he's pretty slow on the uptake.

The legislators that demand justice for crimes against the American people are not metaphorical children, assholemitter.

He's not wrong.  Fark the optics of "da left is persecuting us! It's a political witch hurnt!"  Go after that piece of shiat guns blazing.  He is everything that is wrong with right-wing politics (and humanity in general), and an example needs to be made loud and clear that says in no uncertain terms, "This shiat is unacceptable, morally, ethically, humanly, and it will not go unpunished."  You don't get to "just move on" from this sort of stuff in politics, because it just teaches the right that there are no consequences for their heinous words and actions and makes everything worse.  Political shiat sticks to the walls, and it needs to be cleaned off and sanitized.  And after TFG's years, exorcized.

He's starting to seether?

Ha, Don Winslow blocked me after I called him out on his shiat last night.

Good riddance.
 
2021-11-29 9:08:52 AM  
Maybe he should have taken the chance we had to remove D2S from office a little more seriously instead of doing some weird comedy bit.
 
2021-11-29 9:09:28 AM  
He's obviously an eeyore doomer that just doesn't understand how the government works.

Yup. How dare I point out something true which cuts against his narrative.

I'm just saying if you wanted to be rid of him goodly you could have blocked him. You can't apply "good riddance" when you're the one that's getting rid of.

He's not wrong, democrats in a position to do anything are trying to play chess while Trump is fingerpainting with poop. Doesn't matter how clever your strategy is if the whole table ends up covered in shiat.

I've been following this guy named XAnon, he has X level clearance with the government and has been leaking some very interesting information. He says Trump was already hanged and that President Taft was resurrected to finish his term.

AdmirableSnackbar: Schiff is just figuring out the game now. For a smart guy he's pretty slow on the uptake.


Consider the Russians will still hang Schiff and other Dems if they take over Congress, and the only FBI agents actually investigated by the DOJ were the ones that had caught Trump and Putin.
 
2021-11-29 9:21:18 AM  
Less than a year before this starts officially getting swept under the rug and flung down the memory hole? Yeah perhaps a bit of expediency is called for at this point.
 
2021-11-29 9:21:40 AM  
Hey wait I thought this was already happening and everyone demanding something be done were just children ignorant of how government works.
 
2021-11-29 9:21:41 AM  
As with the Bannon investigations and eventually indictments, the DOJ is probably working on Trump and his lackeys even as we speak but they cannot comment on ongoing investigations.  As always, the politicians want it done yesterday but "no comment" is the right answer at this time.  Remember: we only get one shot at criminal cases.  If we fark it up, not only does Trump go free, he can never be prosecuted for those crimes again, even if admits to them later.  Schiff and Co. were given two chances to try Trump in the political arena and it accomplished precisely zero.  Let's not do that a third time.

Digging up this guy after he was specifically used as a olive branch under Obama's admin is a signal that republicans need not worry about whatever illegal nonsense Trump was up to. This was telegraphed from day one.

The Republicans were never going to remove D2S from office... ever.  Schiff could have produced high-res video of Trump murdering babies with a pitchfork and the majority of Republicans would have said it was taken out of context, or "Hey, the babies were asking for it!"

How many times has Trump slipped out of the proverbial "prosecutorial gun reticle"?

The AG is making sure they have their ducks in a row.  First to make sure he can't slither out of the charges (because when you come for the king you'd better not miss, like Republicans did with Clinton).  Second they need to make sure the trial has enough of the right evidence, stated in the right way for sound bite purposes, for the right wing media to have no choice but to turn on him or be labeled as enemies of America themselves.

If done right, the wool will be pulled from enough people's eyes, Trump will become a mere footnote to history, and and MAGAs will disavow him under the "no true Scotsman" cognitive bias.  If done wrong, he walks and uses his prosecution to "prove" that only he can clean up the corruption in DC, and gets re-elected.

Do you have a single fact to back that up?
Note: "facts" may include random youtube videos, tweets, screenshots of FB posts, or memes seen by one of my friends.
 
2021-11-29 9:32:08 AM  
What is it he wants to investigate?

Trump didn't win the state.  There's already a transcript of the call.

Not sure what's left to look into/
 
2021-11-29 9:33:16 AM  
Slightly off topic...

How is her first name pronounced?  Is it "Vah ru kah" or "Vah ru sha"?

If it was being done right, it would already be well underway instead of not even started. It's been nearly a year since insurrection and...nothing.  All that nothing that's happened is a really, really bad way to and maintain the narrative that Trump is a criminal against all the messaging that will come about this being a partisan witch hunt. The DOJ really has screwed the pooch here, and unfortunately so have elected Democrats, because the obvious Republican counter-narrative that "Democrats are prosecuting Trump now as a way to distract from their inability to pass meaningful legislation" also has enough merit to be damaging to both the DOJ and Congressional Democrats.

Right now it looks like nobody in leadership has their shiat together and they don't seem to care about that. That's very not good for people who don't want Republicans to take over in 2022.

Well Biden himself said he didn't want his presidency to be about going after Trump.

Biden set the tone and hand picked the guy to follow it.

Full interview
https://twitter.com/CNNSotu/status/1464971482644234244

Later in a followup question, Schiff suggests that the Justice Department is waiting for the Jan 6th Committee to chase down more facts before they publicly announce an investigation... okay that's likely to be true, so why play politics with this in the answer to the first question?

The DOJ has no reason whatsoever to wait for a Congressional committee to "find" things - especially when that committee is operating entirely behind closed doors - to start investigating on their own. The two organizations should be operating in parallel, not series. If they continue to do nothing for even a few more weeks, the time the DOJ actually gets off the sidelines here it'll be too late for anything they do to matter.

I'm not sure I buy that.  DoJ has a much better chance of getting records and getting interviews than the Committee does, plus they can devote more time and manpower to it, as opposed to a few days worth of hearings, then recess, then a couple more days of hearings, then more recess, etc.  I wouldn't think DoJ would be waiting on the Committee before going ahead with their own investigation.  I could be wrong, but it just doesn't seem like something they would do

I know what you're saying, and he shouldn't have done it that way.  But I'm saying that's not what caused Trump to be left in office.  That outcome was known before the hearings ever started.
