I'm pleasantly surprised she's actually doing something.
Christ that must have been dull to listen to. 7 hours, was it even a filibuster?
She does quite a lot, but as minority leader in a botched system, her powers are limited. Also being a woman and a Democrat means the media, the left and the right hate her, and drown out good stuff she does, so . . .
Often when there's a speaker, no one is actually there, or they might be there, but playing Candy Crush, or making a deal to sell out the American people for cash. The usual.
I like to console myself with this about those tasked with defending Trump and doing so willingly:
All those lawyers lining up to defend Trump's abuses think they're on the gravy train. They're not, they're on the Trump Train. And on the Trump Train, nobody gets paid.
According to that fire & fury book, it was very hard to find lawyers who'd take the job, the book said that (i think it was) 9 major law firms were approached and declined the opportunity to represent the president. Maybe because of what you suggest, that they thought there'd be no money in it.
Then it said there was a sort of mad scramble as everyone implicated tried to get any washington lawyer before they were all 'conflict of interest' taken by the next person.
read that elsewhere too....
this from last year
Four top law firms turned down Trump: report
evidence comes in dribs and drabs but builds up slowly.
Navalny Links Kremlin to Trump Campaign Aide Paul Manafort
Opposition leader Alexei Navalny has published a video investigation claiming that Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska acted as a messenger between U.S. President Donald Trump’s ex-campaign chief Paul Manafort and a top Kremlin foreign policy official, citing footage of a meeting on a yacht.
While I'm on the go with the bent bastards, 60 million dollars worth of loans, or maybe bribes
Trump's Environmental Protection Agency chief, Scott Pruitt, has gone from questioning to whether climate change is happening to wondering whether it is a bad thing, if it is indeed happening.
Would it be too much to ask for a time traveller from the wrecked planet we're creating to turn up and melt some of these stupid Republican fucks with a laser?
Melting permafrost in the Arctic is unlocking diseases and warping the landscape
He's a genius at eating pizza.
needs context :
Ah, ok. Thanks
He's still a twat though.
Even more pathetic than the sort of awful 'satire' people who consider themselves 'the thinkers' listen to on Radio Four.
Whats wrong with listening to radio four.
Bit over defensive this.
No, genuine question
Once a decade something funny comes out of it but radio 4 comedy is a smugfest imo
Oh they must be the shows i don't listen too
+1 on the smugfest. A mate had R4 in his car the other day. There was a comedy show on, I didn't laugh once. It was all so smug.
gardeners question time is as funny as R4 gets, unfortunately.
Trump blocks release of Democratic memo, citing 'significant concerns'
A dodgy firm is trying to block disclosure about he it deals with.
I'm sure there's noting to hide .. but they seem to want to hide it.
Kushner company moves lawsuit venue to keep partners secret
I'll bet it will for him.
I'm amazed Trump is stupid enough to support a wife beater .. errrr, maybe I'm not.
This despicable idiot of a president is really pushing the bounds of stupidity to new limits.
Kushner, the basket with the job of sorting out a middle east peace deal, is absolutely disinterested in local politics... or maybe not.
Trump's Conflicts of Interest in Israel - Center for American Progress
I wonder how much Israel is paying Trump to move the embassy.
Trump, bent, who would have thought it?
Actually, thinking about my above post that unfairly accuses Trump of being a bent bastard, I'm going to apologise to the gentleman as there is absolutely no evidence at all he hires bent twats to key jobs and they use their position for make cash on the side.
OK, I'm taking the piss.
Potential conflicts of interest? Get out of it's she's bent.
