Did i read this correctly: "When you take on the swamp, the swamp fights back"


The impeachment trial of President Donald Trump seemed like it would have massive implications when it took place ― somehow only ― earlier this year. But among Trump’s most fervent supporters, it has served as a rallying cry. At the Republican National Convention this week, for example, speakers repeatedly brought up that their presidential candidate was nearly thrown out of office over corruption.
Rather than shirking away from the fact that Trump was one of only three U.S. presidents to be impeached, Republicans flaunted it to proclaim the president is perpetually and unfairly under attack.

“When you take on the swamp, the swamp fights back,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who has served in Congress since 2007, said Monday in a speech. “They tried the Russia hoax, the Mueller investigation, and the fake impeachment. But despite this unbelievable opposition, look what this president has accomplished.”

Sounds like an admission of guilt to me, calling your party the swamp?

From Cornell law site: "Whoever knowingly and willfully obstructs or retards the passage of the mail

or any carrier or conveyance carrying the mail, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.
(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 778; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(B), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2146.)"

and from the DOJ's own site: https://www.justice.gov/crt/voting-section
"federal law continues to protect citizens from discrimination in voting and from other voting rights violations".

I'm not a lawyer but hopefully this will help assuage some of our fears.

Judge Rules That Trump Rape Accuser E. Jean Carroll Can Go Ahead With Defamation Suit

Source: Daily Beast

A woman who alleges she was raped by President Donald Trump years ago can proceed with her defamation lawsuit against him, a New York judge has ruled. Trump had sought to delay the lawsuit from journalist E. Jean Carroll, who alleges the president defamed her when he said she was “totally lying” about the alleged rape. But Verna L. Saunders, a New York Supreme Court justice, wrote that Carroll’s lawsuit could move forward without delay. Carroll’s legal team can now proceed with its aim of acquiring Trump’s DNA, which they intend to compare to genetic material on the dress Carroll says she was wearing during the incident. The legal team also wants to interview Trump under oath, according to The Washington Post. Carroll alleges Trump raped her in a department store dressing room in the mid-1990s—a claim the president has denied. Trump’s legal team is still able to appeal Saunders’ ruling.

Looks like the Idiot is having a very bad day in the courts. So much winning!

On the Reidout yesterday: A brief review of what other presidents have done for Black Americans


Half way through the program. Damn good full episode.

My favorite part from Joy - she went there: "Are you really legitimate...i mean...and are you REALLY an ADULT?"

Karen Bass fails VP vetting; Duckworth, Rice, Harris, and Warren still in the hunt


"I laid this new case in a post advocating for California Rep. Karen Bass. The argument could be summaries as follows:
1. Biden’s VP should maximize Democratic chances for victory.
2. Donald Trump and downballot Republicans are losing. And losing big-time.
3. Trump and his Republican base are demoralized and flailing.
4. VP nominee should not excite Trump or his demoralized base.
5. VP nominee should do no harm.

At the time, Bass fit the bill: As a relative political unknown, neither Trump nor the Republican right-wing noise machine would have the time to build a case against her. She wouldn’t give Republicans or Trump a shot of energy. We couldn’t say that about either Warren or Obama national security advisor Susan Rice (Benghazi!).

But new revelations about Bass means she now fails point #5: “do no harm.”

Well if this is true i'm breathing a sigh of relief.
