Democrats need to start their own GOP/Russia 'war room'

Hearing that Trump was in the process of establishing a 'war room' to combat allegations of his collusion with Russia, I thought it might be a very good idea for the Democrats to begin to set up their own version of a 'war room'. I imagine an organization staffed with dozens of true patriots, fending off disinformation and the outright lies that we know await us from the right, and setting the record straight before those lies gain traction.

We must NEVER allow Republicans to disavow or deny their connection and allegiance to Trump, from campaign through impeachment and imprisonment. They cannot claim that they never supported him; they cannot pass him off as a liberal or a Democrat. They own him. They need to be forever joined at the hip, indivisible, linked in shame.

And while they're at it, the Democratic 'war room' should also fend off any efforts by the Republican Party to repudiate the entire party's collusion with Mother Russia and reliance on her riches to line their coffers. This must be a talking point for time immemorial, to remind the American people of the treachery and subversion evidenced by fact and adjudicated in our most revered system of justice.

Never again. When the history books are written, this will be one of our darkest chapters. We can't allow 'them' to control the narrative and diminish their culpability and with it the overtly sinister nature of their behavior.

Follow the evidence. Follow the money.

Follow the Yellow Sick Toad.


Why should we care what the Republicans have to say about this?

We know they won't do anything.

We know they won't reference their prior statements about divulging classified information and label themselves hypocrites.

We know they'll whistle by the graveyard as they dodge, deflect and obfuscate.

What MATTERS is what Democrats have to say about this. And how many Democrats have something to say about this. And how frequently these Democrats have something to say about this.

Let's face it, those mongrels on the right sure know how to grab ahold of a shin, bury their teeth and dig in for months and years at a time.

Congressional Democrats, the ball is in your court.

FETCH.

Describe the carnage: what IF Trump went down?

More pointedly, how would America cope if criminal charges were brought against Trump, against Ivanka, against Uday, against Qusay, against Kushner, against his VP, his cabinet, his advisors, his attorney, his campaign aides, against several Congressmen and women, against Congressional staff, and beyond...and what if all of them were card-carrying members of the Republican Party?

Think of the millions of Americans who identify themselves as Republicans and their reaction to this criminal round-up. They're already conditioned to see American politics as an us versus them game. Many of them have been programmed to believe that all of this is a hoax, a scam, a political witch hunt arising out of Democrats' anger for losing the election. What would they do if indictments were laid down, arrest warrants issued? Could this country withstand the protests and obfuscations of millions upon millions of aggrieved Republicans...even if based on evidence corroborated by our intelligence agencies and other intelligence agencies around the world, even if tried in American courts of law with all due process?

Think of the FBI and the DOJ, gathering evidence of inconceivable breadth and reach, against federal level government officials. They must wonder what the end game of all of this will be. They must carry a burden that none of us could fathom, our delicate democracy teetering in the balance, countered by a duty to seek justice against those who would undermine the very fabric of our nation.

What would happen if EVERYONE who violated federal law was brought to justice? Would we survive?

Trump is unhinged and is getting backed into a corner

Do you fear what I fear?

Trump's "nuclear option" would be to exercise his nuclear option.

If this man freaks out because the walls are closing in on him, as the ultimate distraction, I fear that he would drop a nuclear weapon on NK, or Iran, or wherever his pudgy little digit directed it.

Trump's crimes that preceded his presidency are destined to bring him down. RICO violations, obstruction of justice, income tax evasion. He stands to spend the balance of his days behind bars and to lose every ill-gotten asset in his name.

To an egotistical bastard like Trump, I bet he would rather die than face those consequences. OR...he would rather bring all of us down with him.

Would all those terrific "generals" he goes on about thwart an ill-advised nuclear attack in that event? God help us all.
