Internet attacks #MidnightMitch for Republican impeachment sham: ‘A massive middle finger to every American’

Published

on

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) decided the night before the impeachment trial that both sides would do their opening statements in two days each over 24 hours each. That means each day the opening statements will go from 1:00 p.m. EST until 1:00 a.m. EST the following day. If the members take any breaks for lunch, dinner or anything else, it means the proceedings will go well into the early morning hours.

It prompted those online to ask what Republicans have to hide if they’re so sure that President Donald Trump did nothing wrong and thinks he will be acquitted.

It’s an ironic twist, given Republicans just spent the last several months attacking Democrats for having classified depositions behind closed doors before they ultimately released the unclassified transcripts. Now, Republicans are trying to pull exactly what they complained about.

In fact, a new poll was revealed Monday showing that the tide has turned against Trump, with 51 percent of Americans approving Trump being removed from office. In a recent Iowa Caucus poll, things are even worse.

“When Trump isn’t mentioned, 72 percent of voters (including 59 percent of Repubs) said it’s wrong for a presidential candidate to seek foreign help against a rival,” said former Obama administration aide Chris Lu.

McConnell also announced that none of the evidence in the house trial could be admitted into the Senate trial unless it’s voted it. So, now not only are the Republicans trying to prevent witnesses and hide the trial, but they’re also trying to keep away any evidence.

Gideon leads the Democratic field in the poll by more than 50% and is the overwhelming favorite to face the Republican in November.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe shreds Bloomberg for flunking ‘politics 101’ in first debate

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough buried Mike Bloomberg's first presidential debate performance, and thumped big-name Democrats who saw him as the party's political savior.

The "Morning Joe" host said the billionaire and former New York City mayor seemed terribly unprepared for the attacks against his lengthy business and political record, and Scarborough said Bloomberg failed at the most basic skills.

"I think for Democratic professionals who saw this guy as their political savior to save them from Bernie Sanders, they had to be disappointed last night because he was bad in politics 101," Scarborough said. "They'll forgive a candidate that can beat Donald Trump for just about anything, but you're right, it's called a pivot."

While Trump tries to remake the federal courts, progressive state prosecutors are making huge inroads

Published

on

On the national level, President Donald Trump is appointing judges by the dozens to positions on US federal courts, ensuring a conservative tilt for a generation.

But on the local level, a small group of progressive state prosecutors have been elected, and they have big ideas about criminal justice reform.

Parisa Dehghani-Tafti -- who is now the top prosecutor in northern Virginia's Arlington county in the Washington suburbs -- knows she is not the "typical" candidate for the job.

"I am an immigrant. I grew up very poor. I have done some (public) defender work," says the 46-year-old, who was born in Iran, and is a mother to two black children.
