2 weeks ago, GOP: "Let's storm the SCIF and force these hearings to be public!"


Today, GOP: "Why are we having public hearings! This is a show trial!"


This is why it is best to ignore what the GOP is saying and simply do the right thing.

1. 2 weeks ago, Democrats: "OK, no problem. We'll hold public hearings."

And so it will be. Maybe the GOP will boycott them, you know, because they're "illegitimate." That'd be great!

5. Uh, media folks?

There couldn't be enough cameras and microphones capturing the action two weeks ago while Republican elected officials were compromising the security of the SCIF area, yammering about being shut out of secure hearings, even though a dozen of them were members of the committees that were meeting.

Today? A 180 degree reversal of their previous position, and utter silence from the media. None of the folks who made that grandstand play are being asked about it. Nobody who discounted the empty stunt as a stunt are being remembered, and the public isn't being informed about this two-faced hypocrisy.

Whoa, is it time for another thumb-sucker on the uninformed electorate again already?

6. Trump just said

that the hearings shouldn't be public. And, the reason he won't let Mulvaney testify is that it would give the proceedings "legitimacy."
Just more diversionary tactics and bullshit.

7. It reminds me a lot of my long-time corollary:

"If billionaires are for it, you should probably be against it."

Same thing, different gravy.

9. yep, the GOP doesn't take this seriously and it's quite serious

possibly the single most serious threat to our nation in my lifetime and they parade around like clowns in a big top show
GOP needs to be shown that our nation isn't their private circus

12. My prediction is the media will edit this all for the newscasts in such a way

they will "bothsides" it when reporting crazy crap that the repubs accuse the dems of. They won't look in to what is fact and what is fiction.

The right wing is insanely skilled at manipulating the media.
