How do you make an elephant scream? Appoint Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama to the Supreme Court and start raking the fat bastard over a Presidential Crimes Commission.

Have no idea what went down.
"LOCK HER UP" seems to be permeating TIO, habeas corpus be damned - it's LAW & ORDER, spreading like Covid....
If only Fauci could develop an Autocracy vaccine ....we'd all be a lot safer.
Anyway....I'm in the dark as to your crime - but since justice is blind, it doesn't matter. I clearly see that your actions were noble, thoughtful and brave.

I suppose that it's a direct result of the 'look after number one' philosophy that is the US society.
Lost your job? Well tough luck, get off your arse and get another one.
Got sick? Well tough luck.. unless you can afford insurance.
What I find interesting is just how easily Trump has found it to recruit people who'll do his bidding and just how few reflect on the ethics of their service and question their actions.
No doubt many have found it to be a special thing to be appointed by POTUS, but how few resign when asked to bend the rules beyond what is considered ethical. They must ask themselves the questions, 'Will resigning make a difference? Will losing my job make a difference? Will shooting myself in the foot mean that nobody will take my place?', and so many conclude that 'Just obeying orders' justifies their salary and the prestige such positions endow, after all if the president says so....
But so many aren't dyed in the wool politicians, they're republican donors and supporters who see nothing wrong with 'power at any price'.
It's come to a pretty pass when we're relying on and hoping that the political class will finally see that destroying the US constitution is a step too far. Too many of them are hiding away from the spotlights lest people start asking embarrassing questions and when they're caught out in the open how many turn away afraid to look the questioner in the face.
Like I say, such activity is a direct inevitable result of the 'look after number one' philosophy that is the US society of today.
If it hadn't have been Trump it would have been someone else, and we can only hope that the system hasn't degenerated to the extent where it cannot be brought back to where the US version of democracy can still recover.
Remember, it was fellow politicians who handed Hitler the Chancellorship of Germany thinking much as Collins put it after the failed impeachment 'I believe that the President has learned from this case' and that he 'will be much more cautious in the future.'

Does this require actual reading or can I just send Lawyers, Guns and Money? This now a Warren Zevon fest if that's all right with everybody.

COVID-positive Tyler Rep. Louie Gohmert postpones fundraiser but says he’s feeling ‘remarkably well’

The Tyler Republican credits his recovery to a cocktail of treatments, including the unproven drug hydroxychloroquine.

Gohmert told One America News Monday night that he’s nearly asymptomatic after dealing with body aches and a cough the week before. Gohmert credited his minor symptoms and fast recovery to hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malaria drug that experts warn is not effective in treating COVID-19 but that President Trump and his followers have been pushing as a possible treatment for the virus, as well as a “cocktail” of other treatments more commonly used to fight the virus in humans.

I suppose we should be thankful that he conceded: "“It’s a legitimate virus, and it has caused death -- although it’s normally somebody whose system has been compromised by some other illness or age and illness. But it is a legitimate virus,” he said."
