It's like the first penguin or wildebeest - will the leopard seal or croc get him or not? I'm betting on sharp teeth. Tweetstorm coming.

Hmmm...There's actually a little noise about him running for potus in 2020. At least he wouldn't be joining the dem field.

That would help explain this move.

:D I wondered if he wasn't about to become a Dem, but he seems pretty rightwing.

Cool, some Libertarians might capture lefty votes, but Amash would only steal Repug votes.

Not that it too genius to predict.

Donald Trump's latest tweets!
Never a fan of @justinamash, a total lightweight who opposes me and some of our great Republican ideas and policies just for the sake of getting his name out there through controversy. If he actually read the biased Mueller Report, “composed” by 18 Angry Dems who hated Trump,....

....he would see that it was nevertheless strong on NO COLLUSION and, ultimately, NO OBSTRUCTION...Anyway, how do you Obstruct when there is no crime and, in fact, the crimes were committed by the other side? Justin is a loser who sadly plays right into our opponents hands!
‘Who’s on diaper duty?’: Trump taunted for childish tantrum over GOPer Amash’s impeachment tweets

:thumbup:

Democratic leaders put on the spot after GOP lawmaker makes powerful case for Trump impeachment

:thumbup: Okay, I know that Pelosi and the Dems have to consider that the Senate won't do a fair trial and vote, what that will do to the Dems and the nation is important, and I don't know what I'd do in their place, but in a world where only integrity mattered the impeachment process would already be well underway.

Fwiw, MI3 is solid red. This was not done for electoral self-interest.

Opps - Not that it *took* genius to predict.

Judge rules in favor of House Democrats' efforts to obtain Trump's financial records from former accounting firm

A federal judge on Monday ruled in favor of House Democrats in their efforts to obtain President Donald Trump’s financial records, marking the first legal victory for Democrats as the Trump administration stonewalls their attempts at congressional oversight.

“It is not for the court to question whether the Committee’s actions are truly motivated by political considerations.” Judge Amit Mehta wrote in a ruling Monday. “Accordingly, the court will enter judgment in favor of the Oversight Committee.”

President Trump and the Trump Organization filed suit against the Democratic chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings, last month, seeking relief from his subpoena request for the president’s financial records.

The court also denied their request for a stay pending appeal....
:---P

POSPOTUS and his Trumpettes wanted an ACTIVIST judge that would magically divine the Committee’s motivation in their favor rather than one that would rule on the law as written the way that United States District Judge Mehta did. Funny that.

He hasn't been awful, yet, and SCOTUS hears very few cases. Plus, they would have to take it on an emergency basis, rare, or the Dems would have had the records for a long time, making an appeal moot. Remind me to eat crow if I'm being too optimistic.

I find it kind of hard to believe that someone that works for IRS and someone that works for Deutsche Bank hasn't already given records to NYT or some friend of a friend that is on a Congressional staff. And I've wondered for a while whatever became of the Trump Organization CFO (I forget his name) that was supposedly cooperating with Congressional investigators. That dude had been with the company for decades and probably knows all the shit but we've not heard anything about him for months. And I also think there's some dominoes that will never fall no matter what; like McConnell, Graham, Jordan, Meadows, Nunes......well, you know.

Isn’t not immediately jumping up and down while screaming, “I’m awful, I’m awful,” something you do when you want others to call you “thoughtful” when it comes time to do the deed you were hired to do?

didn't fat tony finally admit, in a book or something, that he and his fellow repugs voted to take the presidency away from Gore simply because they could and in spite of the reasons for doing so being against everything they stood for?

Tony got 100 votes
What did Boof get – 50 or 51?

Shirley you can’t be so optimistic as to believe that a president can be destroyed for having a consensual blow job wile another president and his admin get accolades for pushing lies on the American people and Congress to start a for profit war.
Or a vp gets the easy treatment and an underling takes a little fall, but there is no investigation into the surrounding lies about the fake war, while a Sect. of State and acknowledged presidential candidate can be grilled over bs lies until half the country turns against her.
Care to match repug to dem scandals

Boof is here for a reason

No disagreement here, just saying that THIS case may not reach SCOTUS or be ruled in 45SHOLE's favor. Some law is too clearcut for even the Boofs to mess with . . . maybe.

"Shirley"?
