Any Republican who votes for Trump at the end of this should be forever banned from wearing an American flag lapel pin or referencing themselves as a patriot of this great nation.

Betcha money if Hill left her door open late into the night and entertained her nephew with video games neither one of those cops would shoot her dead while doing it.

There are repubs who oppose him and more and more openly, and then are repubs who only seek more greatness.

Apparently the officer just resigned. FW Chief plans on personally getting updates from major case squad (?).

That story upset me so much. That poor woman died in her family’s house, literally minding her own business…and then a cop, who doesn’t even identify himself, and is prowling the perimeter instead of walking up and ringing the GD doorbell, yells out and then fires his gun a second later. I said this on TPM years ago, and it was not well received, but I’ll say it again: there will come a time when preemptively shooting a police officer in self-defense is the logical and self-preserving move to make. Are we there yet?

Hill was subpoenaed for her appearance Monday before the House Committees on Oversight, Intelligence and Foreign Affairs. After attempting to sit-in on the interview, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) was booted from Hill’s deposition because he wasn’t a member of any of those three committees.

Attempted witness intimidation.

It’s now abundantly clear what happened in the Ukraine. Guiliani needed our honest ambassador gone to run his crooked scheme to clear Manafort and to get dirt from Ukraine to help Trump’s political campaign.

They are all trigger happy
How many times has someone died because they unload a whole clip into the victim when the first shot is usually enough to slow or stop

Maybe it’s one of those regional things. You know it starts with one person who shares with one person, and then that person shares with two more? Until finally they kick someone to the curb.
