Why would he release boring transcripts of a private hearing and let his party forego an opportunity to grandstand and melodramatize in front of the crowds at a public hearing?

They learned a while ago that people are lazy and dumb. You can piss in their face and they'll thank you for hydrating them. Somewhere, right now, these two war criminals are playing golf, or sipping lemonade through a straw after almost destroying the country. And no one did shiat to them.

there's something like 40 hours of testimony. Public hearing would scratch like 2% of that when you add in grandstanding and bloviating, as well as audible eyerolls and "seriously, we've told you f*ckers all this a thousand times before" from Fusion

I'm betting they stepped on a few landmines in the private hearing that showed Fusion to be legitimate and reliable, and now if Fusion comes back for a public hearing they will have a nice little map to skirt anything that goes against their talking points. If they released the private testimony transcript we'd get to see them stepping all over their dicks again.

McConnell has had problems passing bills because they can't agree on just how evil to be.  And he got Collins to vote in favor of the tax bill while giving her what she knew to be an empty promise in return. That's pretty evil all around.  They know what's going on, they're not that dumb. All they can do now to keep themselves out of hot water is to cover up the investigation.  If they were as dumb as you're insinuating it would have been mostly over by now.

Straight out of a spy novel: How Robert Mueller is unraveling the Russian deep state mystery

LantCynic SmarterThanTheAvgBear42 minutes ago
Your US "intelligence"agencies engaged in plots to rig the election in favor of Clinton and are presently engaged in an open, brazen, attempted coup to overthrow the US government. As for "protecting"us, they are are greater threat than ISIS or any foreign enemy this country has ever faced. Obama emplaned moles throughout the "Intelligence" community that are actively engaged in espionage and treason against the US government.
You are being short sighted, when you think these thugs will stop when/if they remove Trump. They won't stop there. You bone heads have laid the foundation for a police state and it's going to come back and bite you.

Pretty much this. The BEST case scenario would be to schedule a public hearing, but Fusion leaks the entire private hearing the morning of. That way, we can see Chuck Grassley and the entire Russpublican party breakdance on their own genitals after having their talking points blown to pieces for what are sure to be the funniest hours you will ever see on Television.

Now to figure out how to rectify the situation, this, as it stands, is untenable.
The stochastic calls are coming to a crescendo, the desire to tear up the law in the name of profiteering.
There needs to be a reset, without anything getting blown up, that'll just give them an excuse.

Someone will release it within a week.  First it will be the Republikans, with a redacted version the Republicans with a redacted version that makes Fusion GPS look terrible.  Then it will be the Russians, with a version that makes Fusion GPS look criminal.  And finally the real version, which will mark the GOP as criminal enablers.

I am guessing that each hearing was like Clinton's Benghazi testimony, where the Republicans repeated their Fwd:Fwd:Fwd talking points. And Clinton calmly and methodically shredded every one of them. Then the next Republican came forward and repeated the same talking points. They live in an alternate reality where repetition is truth, regardless of actual facts.

Releasing the transcripts of the private hearing will make public all the times the Senators said to Fusion "We know you didn't do anything wrong, but we're going to mischaracterize and outright lie about your testimony anyway because people will believe any lie we say about Hillary."

They're not broke now.  They were always broke.  It's just showing up more because their job description has changed.

January 20th 2009 - January 19th 2017: We don't have to do anything but object, neglect, abstain, and complain.  A two year old could do this job.

Less than one year. There's an election for the entire House this year, plus 34 Senators, and a bunch of state and local races.

The Legislature and the Judiciary are supposed to be co-equal branches of the government. You don't have to flip all three at once.

So, in a year we can change one half of one third of the Federal government. Meanwhile Trump, with the enthusiastic support of traitors in the Republican Party, continues to make lifetime appointments to the Federal bench (one of those thirds) and runs the Executive Branch (another third) like one of the mafia families he bought concrete from in New York.

In other news, from today's WSJ:

A Moment of Contempt
Justice and the FBI continue to flout House subpoenas.

"The House Intelligence Committee has set a deadline of Wednesday for the Department of Justice and FBI to turn over documents related to the Christopher Steele dossier purporting to investigate ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. If they fail to comply, Speaker Paul Ryan will need to back up Congress's institutional prerogatives and hold the individuals responsible to contempt proceedings and possible impeachment.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray have had the subpoenas since Aug. 24, but they have responded with excuses, delays and misdirection. The Justice Department has refused to provide Congress with the most basic documents demanded under the subpoenas. These include reports detailing the FBI's interactions with sources such as Mr. Steele, who was hired by the opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which was funded by associates of the Hillary Clinton campaign."

Since the House Intelligence Committee is not "newspapers," I'd say there's a big difference.   But I understand, if you lament Comey's "early retirement," I can understand you equating the turnover of evidence to the committee to a release to the news media which in this case, now that he's gone, it won't be.

Y'all do realize there's a reason why they're trying to pivot the justification for the FISA warrant from Fusion to Papadopoulos, right?

While the Senate map is looking rough for the Dems, if the blue wave that appears to be forming holds, it's possible for them to hold all their seats and flip Nevada + Arizona or Tennessee, thereby gaining the Senate. I'm not saying it's in the bag, but neither is it impossible. The fact that TN is even in play and AL has a Democratic senator is already insane, so let's not rule out possibilities at this point.

If Dems don't flip either chamber this year, we're f'ed.
