Asking for notes from the class nerd because you haven't bothered to do any work yourself isn't a good look.

You eeyores are going to have egg on your face when the committee completes their investigation and presents a report telling us all the information we already saw happen on live TV.

Where 'something' is to slow down the process until after the election, so it can all go away if the Republicans win the House.

I saw what happened during Iran Contra.  Whoa, slow down, that's a little too much justice already. Let's not rush this.

An old bull and a young bull are standing on a hillside, looking down at the meadow below. The young bull says to the old bull "Let's run down there and f**k some of them cows, eh, mate?" (they were Australian)
The old bull replies "No. Let's walk down, and f**k ALL of 'em".

It would have been fun to have a Merrick Garland who was bitter and vindictive for not getting to be on the Supreme Court, but I guess that was just liberal fanfic after all.

In this case, the old and young bulls are going to starve to death on the hill having never moved at all.

The thing may be that Garland looks like doesn't give a shiat at all because he doesn't need to give a shiat.

He's white, so the usual race war talk on the fringes and the replacement theory stuff thats edging into the mainstream one Fox News show at a time doesn't concern him.

He's a dude, so Roe vs Wade being dismantled and new laws waiting on the fringes to control women even more don't concern him.

He's been doing law stuff since the late 70s, and hasn't worked a non-fed job in over forty years, so he's got cash and whatever pro-corporate anti-worker stuff that's coming down the pipe doesn't concern him.

He's 69 years old, he'll be dead before the long term environmental consequences of tearing down what EPA legislation we have really kick in.

He's straight, so stuff like gay marriage getting outlawed again, the "don't say gay" laws and the same talk about how gay people spread aids coming back, just reskinned with "monkey pox" instead doesn't concern him.

He's not trans, so the deliberate targeting of trans people, the grooming talk, and the shockingly high suicide rate of trans kids because they have no support doesn't concern him.

He is Jewish, so you'd think the rising hate crime rate and the crazy talk from the white supremacist conspiracy zones would light a fire under his ass but that has yet to be seen.

Compared to the rest of us he has very little skin in the game.

And if congress is your class nerd then you're in remedial and get stars on your tests instead of grades.

I wonder if they've heard the recording of TFG's call to the Georgia Secretary of State? Maybe someone should tell them about that, too.

WaitWaitWait...so you're telling me that the Justice department gathered information, built a case, and verified that their information was accurate before making arrests and invoking double jeopardy!??!!?!?  That's unpossible!!!  They should have just been arresting people en masse to send a message, that they're going to be lawless, just like the Trump regime was!

What we saw play out on TV was, legally, trespassing on government property, destruction of property, and trying to stop the duties of Congress from being carried out. Most of the foot soldiers are getting those charges (that aren't the heads of the militias, they're getting the more serious charges like seditious conspiracy)

What we didn't see play out on TV was the funding, the organizing, and the ultimate "plan". That's what both DOJ and the 1/6 committee are investigating.

news reports != legally binding evidence

Did he perfect the flying car?  A room-temperature superconductor?  No, wait, is it cold fusion?  I think we're gonna have cold fusion by midterms.

The right cannot win the way they imagine winning.  They want to rule what America has, but their rule will destroy that.  If not in taking power, in wielding it.

The left cannot save the country without getting its hands dirty.  The amount of time remaining to come to terms with that is growing very, very short.

There was an article that said Garland believes his job is to protect the office of the President.
Most likely he was looking for information to run interference for Trump and his administration.

Everyone assumes the law will stop the GQP, and everyone forgets the GQP controls the law and its enforcers.

I give 100 to 1 odds, the cowardly worm garland will do nothing of consequence. I'm beginning to think he's just billy barr after losing 300lbs.

Mean while the vets are under both of them with castration bands thinking the lowing between the pair of them is over the fact their giblets are going to fall off from oxygen starvation.

Of course we didn't see any of that on TV.

That part was done on Facebook, Parler, Gab, and Twitter.

At this point, I'm doubtful they're asking for the notes to assist in prosecuting Trump, but to know what areas they need to circle the wagons to protect the Executive Office from future precedents.

Don't trust Garland for shait anymore. He's had ample time and evidence to get this rolling and hasn't done it. And even helped protect Trump the rapist from civil damages.

He is not an ally to the rule of law.
