I want to see Republicans rip each other's throats out. Loose the

dogs of war. Sociopaths (Trump-Ryan) vs. Psychopaths (Freedom Caucus). Have at it, boys!

Open Call to Sally Yates: Speak to the Public because Nunes

canceled the hearing.

It's time now for Ms. Yates to speak to the public via a press conference as to what she would have testified to were the House Intelligence Committee hearing to proceed as scheduled.

Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

If Pelosi and Hoyer play their cards right, they can fracture the House

Republican Conference into 1,000 individual shards (technically, 236 shards). The Freedom Caucus of 36 far-right reactionaries has essentially declared its independence from the Republican Conference. That means the newly-trimmed down Republican Party now has only a six-vote lead (200-194) over the unified Democratic Conference.

Looked at another way, Pelosi and Hoyer need only peel off 22 Republicans from the Republican Conference to assemble a working majority of 216 for Democratic policies (and a majority that could elect Pelosi as Speaker).

I'm confident the upcoming battle over tax reform will present Pelosi and Hoyer the opportunity to strike while the opportunity is there.

It's time for Boente (acting AG in charge of #Russiagate)

to empanel a Federal Grand Jury and start subpoenaing witnesses. One arm of the government (the judiciary) is so far uncorrupted. Time for DUE PROCESS OF THE LAW to assert its majesty.

Nunes was on the Trump transition team. He needs to recuse

himself from his Committee Chairperson role for the duration.

The fucker is possibly even a co-conspirator. He certainly should not be receiving classified briefings about an investigation of which he himself may be a subject.

WTF??? I hope Comey has the goods on Nunes and nails him.

Rep. Mike Conaway is a dumbass. What a moron. I wonder

if his constituents are as stupid as he is.

The leakers are American heroes! Daniel Ellsberg was an

American hero. Yeah, it's a crime to leak classified information unless the non-disclosure hides a greater crime!

Put me on a federal jury trying a 'leaker' and I will be a nullifer!

House Intel Committee needs to subpoena Carter Page, J.J. Gordon, et. al. and

get their answers under oath or force them to take the Fifth.

Time to roll 'em up.

Saddam Hussein's biggest mistake may have been to put out a 'Beware of Dog' sign without

having a dog to back him up. DPRK (North Korea) has that dog. My Jarhead Dad fought in Korea and was wounded at Inchon back in 1949-50. He says the North Korean soldiers were the toughest fighters he ever saw. Coming from my Jarhead Dad, that is high praise indeed and words all should heed.

Articles of Impeachment: Right now, there is evidence for

Abuse of Power (this Saturday's tweets) and the broad outlines of Obstruction of Justice (various administration efforts to squelch or guide the FBI investigation).

Any others?
