And the only place Mr. Clark should ever be allowed to practice law again is inside a federal prison.

This was a political coup happening, just like Nixon’s Saturday Night Massacre.

Blatant Abuse of Power.

If Trump had any shame, he would have committed hara kiri by now.

He can represent his Federalist Society. Surely they have no scruples, when you have an “R” next to your name.

I think Mr Jeff Clark is DOA already as of Friday Jan 22, 2021. He knows it… the whole world knows it. Just a matter of time before his ass is on the street… and the investigation will ensnare him as well as his “client” - Individual-1.

How about more real news and fewer repeated tweets. This story isn’t journalism. It is just cut and paste. The author should be ashamed.

This is an important story. I want to know the details of the plot.

I saw this discussed on Rachel Maddow last night (and then on Lawrence O’Donell’s Last Word) and the point was brought up by both that “interference with the election results in Georgia” was included in the impeachment particulars.

You’re right, of course. Definitely needs specifying…except, in the case of BLOTUS sycophants, I can easily say, “all of ‘em, Katie.”

Well, now we know why Trump rushed back to the WH instead of staying comfy in Mar-a-GoGo.

We can only hope that more evidence will come out before the Senate trial, but will it be enough to convince the brain dead to vote to convict? If the evidence that we already have was not enough, they are a lost cause.

Off on a tangent - how much of a fuss will the sedition/treason/foreign agent wing of the GOP Senate (i.e., most of the GOP Senate) put up over confirming a bona fide AG, when they have so much to hide, and so much to lose?

In the article there is a huge amount of detail - including the fact that Trump was being vocal about this a week BEFORE Barr left. Well, Mr. Billy Barr - what did you know and when did you know it?

It amazes me as to just how fast people roll over just because the GOP decides to lie, reject accurate reporting and stick to message.

There was a tornado full of “the-GOP-will-never-convict”, along with mis-portraying Democrats.

Trump will either get convicted or the GOP as a whole will.
