The interim report by the Senate Judiciary Committee shows how Trump's Jan. 6 incitement of a mob of his supporters to attack the Capitol was only his most publicly visible attempt to overturn an election he clearly lost. In the days prior, Trump was maneuvering behind the scenes, trying to weaponize his Justice Department to validate his already-disproven claims of election fraud.

No rational American today would defend Nixon's actions — and he was merely trying to get away with covering up an illegal wiretap, an objectively less damnable offense than trying to overturn a valid national election," they charged. "With every new revelation, Trump's attempted coup against democracy further dooms him to the trash bin of history. Those who still don't understand that might well find themselves joining him there.

The 01/06 House Select Committee needs to start arresting those who are defying the House subpoenas as well. Hmm

...else contempt of Congress means nothing, and Congress will NOT a co-equal branch of government.

Just listened to Rep Schiff saying Trump supporters will be convinced Trump should not be supported.

Yep Rep Schiff is as delusional as the narcissist Trump. There is nothing ... let me repeat a little louder .... NOTHING .... which would change their mind. He is the son of god, savior of America, blah blah blah.

Don't talk about what they are thinking about doing .... Just do it .... round up the ahole scum and throw them in jail. Frak these unAmericans .... they are not above the law.

I predict none of the people with the right information will testify. They will all plead the 5th or claim executive privilege .... and should they be hauled into court and "compelled" I predict they will still not testify. They will sit out their time in jail waiting for the return of Trump and his goosestepping brownshirts.

Yep, despite all of the evidence to the contrary.
And his re-election is an entirely possible outcome of the 2024 election.

He's made it clear that the only thing between him and running would be failing health and he seems pretty healthy for a man his age.

So yeah...it could happen, but is it worth obsessing over for the next few years? As the title of this thread implies, history is going to judge the capital riot harshly and once all the facts are in history is going nail Trump and his little cadre of racists and crooks for exactly what they are.

Like you, I am expecting the immediate future to be bleak. But I'm not gonna let it get me down.

I don't think Trump will be the next president, but if he is I already know exactly what it will be like. I survived it once and will again. If there is a silver lining to look for it is that Republicans are notoriously bad at governing. They are their own worst enemies.

Politics is a slow-moving game, and it's looking like we're gonna hafta pretty much hunker down for a decade. If that scenario plays out, there will be a massive blue wave in 2032.

But for now, we really don't have enough data to speculate about 2024. Biden, Harris, and Trump are the only sure players in a squid game that will involve 100 or so.


Good coffee, good weed, and time on my hands...
