1. "Trump bought off McConnell and the rest of the GOP jury -- and hints at bigger tax cuts"

Follow the money on impeachment: Trump bought off McConnell and the rest of the GOP jury ó and hints at bigger tax cuts



https://www.rawstory.com/2020/01/follow-the-money-on-impeachment-trump-bought-off-the-mcconnell-and-the-rest-of-the-gop-jury-and-hints-at-bigger-tax-cuts/

Republican senators are making millions off of Trumpís tax cuts ó and will repay him by betraying their oath.

Itís long been obvious that Republican senators have little interest in serving as impartial jurors in the impeachment trial of Donald Trump. While there is a raft of motivations for such historic perfidy ó with several GOP senators politically benefiting from some of the same corrupting influences ó one under-examined, non-Russian reason is personal greed.

A new report reveals that the 2017 GOP tax law was rife with monumental self-dealing by rich GOP lawmakers who have since benefited bigly. According to a Center for Public Integrity analysis, several Republican members of Congress directly cashed in on the multibillion-dollar windfall from the corporate tax cuts the GOP pushed through on a party-line vote. With the lowest effective tax rate in the last 40 years, Americaís largest corporations proceeded to pour $1 trillion not into increased wages for workers but buybacks of their own stocks, causing stock prices to soar. Coincidentally, many Republican lawmakers who voted for the largest tax cut signed into law by Trump personally owned some of the same stocks whose values significantly increased as a result.

At least seven Republican senators owned stocks in companies that spent billions on buybacks, resulting in great personal profit, according to the Center for Public Integrity. The report came on the same day that former New York Rep. Chris Collins, who was the first sitting GOP congressman to support Trumpís 2016 presidential campaign, was sentenced to 26 months in prison for insider trading.

2. Its funny trump likes to talk about others talking about him

But he refuses to under oath. Call them both in to testify under oath and see who's lying and who isn't.

3. They can bury a witness but they won't be able to bury the truth for long

It always comes out and November is coming.

Chris Matthews was covering the Senate presser. And after a minute he cut away to discuss it with his panel. He's not a favorite around here but he did the right thing and didn't put up with the bullshit.
