“This is not an election between Republicans and Democrats. This is not a fight between liberals and conservatives. This is nothing less than an epic struggle for the future of this country between Dark and Light, between the godly and the godless, between Good and Evil. And we will win this fight—or America will step off into a thousand years of darkness. We dare not fail!”

There's the line between dirty tricks and sedition

There's one more "nefarious Trump meeting" on the books for investigators (Shades of the impeachment 1 "Trump Tower Meeting"!):

"This seeming footnote in a mid-size newspaper may become one of the most startling revelations of the ongoing federal criminal investigation of the January 6 insurrection: it means that one of the organizers of the now-infamous Stop the Steal/March to Save America event met with Trump’s top advisers and family members—and possibly, if a speakerphone was employed, Trump himself—on the night before the insurrection to discuss how to “pressure more members of Congress to object to the Electoral College results that made Joe Biden the winner.” It also means that the organizer of the Jericho March, Flynn, which had been timed to coincide with the Stop the Steal/March to Save America, also met with this corps of Trump advisers to discuss how to “pressure more members of Congress.” And for reasons we still don’t know—but perhaps can guess at—the fifteen (minimum)
participants at the meeting decided that they couldn’t meet in the White House. A call from the hotel to Alexander may offer an explanation for this.

Not only does this meeting appear to confirm that Trump’s team helped orchestrate the events of January 6, but that it participated in the calibration of those events to exert maximum “pressure” on members of Congress in the midst of them executing a grave constitutional duty. Moreover, it participated in that calibration in the presence of a member of the United States Senate, who was therefore—we can now conclude, from the reporting of the Omaha World Herald—working in private with the president’s team to advise Trump on how to generate that maximum pressure on his Senate peers.

It’s evident that the meeting participants did not anticipate that such “pressure” would come from political persuasion—but from the large, angry gatherings that Flynn and Piper had personally helped foment. Indeed, how could a “peaceful” gathering of Trump voters standing well off Capitol property possibly have exerted “pressure” on members of Congress to “object” to state-certified Biden electors inside the building?

The answer is likely to be clear enough to federal investigators: the events Flynn and Piper orchestrated, along with Alexander, could only exert extraordinary pressure on members of Congress if the participants in those events illegally entered Capitol grounds."

Of course not, they're facing a split, and the wrong side will be the majority of the remaining party. McConnell and the establishment republicans are hostages of their own making.

Look at Mike Pence - motherfucker (pun not intended) is right now hiding out, still worried that people are coming for him after the Capitol attack, and probably doing the prudent thing. He can't find a place to live either, despite having an estimated net worth of 1 million, and having been VP. Mitch himself had a message scrawled on his front door not that long ago - he's going along to save his own skin.

Not disputing they're cowards, they're just trying to prolong their own survival - they know the next election cycle will be brutal for them, and the likelihood of them making Biden a one termer is remote after Trump's run, and that the repercussions will be lasting.

One other thing - every potential Republican presidential candidate is going to have to somehow justify that they would stand up to any other world power that threatens them when they were terrified of a man from their own party who had a twitter account and how they capitulated.

It won't be brought up in their own primaries, but wait until the debates start.

Trump's entire legal team for his impeachment trial quit last night - citing that he won't let go of his "this election was stolen from me" angle as the main thrust of his defense. This will likely be his defense at the trial.

And he's furious that he's unable to punish the sitting president with any kind of legal retort, which he insists he's able to do (but no one was allowed to when he was in the chair). His legal team obviously disagreed.

So Maggie Haberman is reporting that the cheap bastard wants to save money on lawyers since the Senate signalled it's acquitting him. And he wants to push the fraud theory, which real lawyers won't do, ethically. Also (and this is insane) Bannon is telling him to represent himself in the Senate. That would turn the trial into TV event of the century. Which is what he wants.

I can't imagine any sane Republican would want to defend this kind of a shit show and spectacle. Bannon, I'm not surprised about - he was never the media genius everyone proclaimed him to be - just another fucking con man with a lot of tough talk.

I am looking forward to watching Ted Cruz and others engage in a Quentin Tarantino level of bootlicking towards Trump again in public.
