  1. Right, it’s shifted but has since tapered off. And it’s not high enough yet to actually threaten enough GOP senators. It’ll need to shift even more in order to get Reps to defect.
  2. At least that one acknowledges Pete was talking about Bernie supporters and not comparing Bernie to Trump. This is why discussion by Twitter is silly. It takes a nuanced point and boils it down to a deceitful headline.
  3. Except he didn’t do that, as clearly shown by the article itself.
  4. I think they care a great deal after Virginia and Kentucky this week. If the public shifts to the point that it endangers their reelections, they’ll toss him out in a heartbeat.
  5. I’m simply pointing out lies and propaganda that get posted here. Maybe people should stop posting lies.
  6. BO: Ignore the article, read these tweets from “Clark feels the Bern”!!!
  7. The public is the ultimate jury for impeachment. Without strong majority support for removing Trump, there will be no conviction in the Senate. Persuading the public to support (or oppose) impeachment is the entire game right now.
  8. Thank for perfectly demonstrating everything I’m saying about this... I posted the entire article showing that Pete never compared Trump to Bernie. You respond to a tweet telling the same lie as the tweet you originally posted...both linking to the article that I posted in full demonstrating that the tweets are false.
  9. False. Pete never compared Bernie to Trump. Not a single line in the article has him comparing Bernie to Trump. I actually posted the entire portion of his comments to the boards. Here’s the link. https://nypost.com/2019/04/21/pete-buttigieg-compares-bernie-supporters-and-trump-fans/ And here’s his comments... Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg compared Bernie Sanders’ supporters with fans of President Trump — claiming that both camps include disaffected citizens who seek to change the status quo. The 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, was speaking at a campaign stop in New Hampshire on Friday when he drew a parallel between followers of the diametrically opposed politicians, according to the Washington Examiner. “I think the sense of anger and disaffection that comes from seeing that the numbers are fine, like unemployment’s low, like all that, like you said GDP is growing and yet a lot of neighborhoods and families are living like this recovery never even happened. They’re stuck,” Buttigieg told high school students in in Nashua, N.H. “It just kind of turns you against the system in general and then you’re more likely to want to vote to blow up the system, which could lead you to somebody like Bernie and it could lead you to somebody like Trump. That’s how we got where we are.” Buttigieg also tried to draw a distinction between himself and the 77-year-old Democratic socialist from Vermont. “Part of running for president is you wind up competing with people that you like or appreciated or admired many years back,” he said about Sanders. “I don’t have the same views on everything that he does.” ^^^The tweet you posted was BS propaganda and an outright lie. You don’t seem to care that you’re posting lies.
  10. That’s difficult to explain because most people don’t know what emoluments are. Most people clearly understand what bribery is.
  11. It can be both, but if they’re going to call it a crime then they have the burden (in the public’s eyes) of proving the criminality of it. That’s a higher and unnecessary burden that makes it much easier for Trump to defend — a lot of legal experts like Preet Bahara (or Renalto Marioto, I forget which) are saying that no prosecutor would bring bribery charges in this case. It muddies the message and it’s unnecessary.
  12. Still trying to distract and deflect from the BS tweet you posted that lied about what Pete said. Not falling for it. You posted a tweet claiming Pete compared Sanders to Trump. The article shows that Pete was talking about Bernie SUPPORTERS and how they were disaffected and angry at the system. Pete was sympathetic to Bernie’s supporters, not attacking Bernie. That tweet lied. And your response to me pointing out that it lied was three stupid memes in a row. Address that.
  13. Yes. But bribery isn’t defined in the Constitution and there would not be a federal bribery statute making it criminal for another 80-100 years. That’s the point. They don’t have to prove the elements of the federal bribery statute that exists today because that statute didn’t exist when the Founders wrote the Constitution.
  14. This is the legalese trap that I’ve been warning about. Bribery wasn’t a criminal offense when the Constitution was written. They shouldn’t get bogged down in trying to prove all elements of the federal bribery statute. It’s not necessary.
  15. ^^^This is what BO has become.
  16. No substance, just endless twitter propaganda and lies. That’s what you’ve become. It’s pathetic.
  17. If your posts are any indication, Bernie Bros and Trump cultists share something else in common... You’ll post whatever bulls*** propaganda and lies you think helps your guy. I’m also laughing at the “intellectually dishonest” part of a tweet making a claim that is itself incredibly intellectually dishonest.
  18. Zaid and the whistleblower won’t be testifying. Bill Taylor will.
  19. Do you even read the bulls*** twitter propaganda that you post? From the article... Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg compared Bernie Sanders’ supporters with fans of President Trump — claiming that both camps include disaffected citizens who seek to change the status quo. The 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, was speaking at a campaign stop in New Hampshire on Friday when he drew a parallel between followers of the diametrically opposed politicians, according to the Washington Examiner. “I think the sense of anger and disaffection that comes from seeing that the numbers are fine, like unemployment’s low, like all that, like you said GDP is growing and yet a lot of neighborhoods and families are living like this recovery never even happened. They’re stuck,” Buttigieg told high school students in in Nashua, N.H. “It just kind of turns you against the system in general and then you’re more likely to want to vote to blow up the system, which could lead you to somebody like Bernie and it could lead you to somebody like Trump. That’s how we got where we are.” ^^^ZOMG HE SAID BERNIE IS JUST LIKE TRUMP!!!!
  20. Can I just add that Godfather of Harlem gets better with each episode?
  21. CNN reporting that Pence aide who was concerned about the Ukraine call will appear to testify tomorrow if subpoenaed. And she’ll definitely be subpoenaed.
  22. This is the type of clownishness that’s the biggest threats to the impeachment effort... Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) went searching for answers regarding Ambassador Gordon Sondland’s faulty memory when he was questioning Taylor. Lieu noted the big gaps in Sondland’s memory when he appeared before the impeachment inquiry, and in a series of questions to Taylor tried to figure out what was behind it. “There was no indication that he was under the influence of alcohol?” Lieu asked Taylor. “There was no indication that he was under any medications that caused short-term memory loss?” Taylor responded dryly: “Not that I know of.”
  23. Where’s Abbott?
  24. Not the hard core Republicans and Trump supporters. They’re not going to change. This is a fight for the middle.
  25. Bro, the entire game here is convincing the general public. Everything about impeachment is going to hinge on how the public reacts to the competing arguments.
