A day after Wisconsin Republicans approved a package of bills intended to restrict the powers of incoming Democratic leaders, Republican lawmakers in Michigan advanced a similar effort despite an outcry from Democrats.


The Michigan state Senate voted on Thursday to strip the power to oversee campaign finance from the newly elected Democratic secretary of state, Jocelyn Benson, instead handing the authority to a bipartisan commission.

But but procedure and civility!

2020 after the election is going to awful
2020 after the election Nancy will still hold the gavel so the GOP can't repeat that (plus the filibuster in the Senate).

Though they'll last minute push through some noxious judges.

Is it getting hot in here or is it just me?
He's pretty ranty tonight. Honestly it's hard to tell sometimes whether he's in a mood because he's been told something is happening, or if he's worked himself into a froth simply from watching Fox coverage.


It's kind of incredible that the right is still laser-focused on the fucking dossier and Carter Page FISA warrants as their only defenses against the Russia investigation.

"enemy of the people", folks.
Ah, so that's why there was a random hard cut. Yeah that's bad. I hate saying it's not unexpected, though. Hell, the President tweeted about "fake news" like a hour ago and CNN's his favorite target.
Fully convinced one of Trump’s true believers is going to actually blow up a CNN office someday
Pretty much.

I look forward to waking up to 10 pages to catch up on tomorrow afternoon.
I tend to go to bed about now, and my work blocks Era so I don't get back on until a few minutes on my phone waiting for the train right after work, or maybe a few minutes more waiting for my apartment shuttle beyond that.

10 pages in that span of time (from about 11 PM Eastern to 4:30 Eastern, or 17.5 hours) is normal. It's when you see 20 that you know something happened, and less than 10 is a no-news-at-all day.

Imagine if Obama had tweeted about fake news and an hour later there was a bomb scare at the FOX studios? Like, I know the answer, but it's proof that we're still finding brand new ways the presidency can still disappoint.

While it seems odd, maybe the reason is that Trump can't strategize with these members of his administration because he'd basically have to admit crimes to them.

Trump: "They're gonna say I did X, so.."
Official: "Wait... you did X?!"

This isn't allegations of racism in your apartments in 1973, you can't settle here while admitting no wrongdoing. Good luck.
He can sit back in the comfort of knowing the Senate will never convict, though. Then resign in the lame duck session and get Pence to cover his ass or something (granting that this won't stop the noose from NYAG).

You know, the things that HAVE BEEN PROVEN 100% TRUE SO FAR, ONE EVEN BY NUNES' ADMITTAL.

It's like the meetings with these PR flak groups are them just going all-in on that one manufactured strat and all legit angles and the failure of that one manufactured strat is ignored.

Maybe if he could block the post-Bardock lvl 3 mix-up with SOME consistancy he could stay!

I was just reading an article today (Newsweek?) that was making fun of Rudy for continually pushing back and shortening the projected length of his response, which was originally bragged about being 100+ pages.

He's just repeating tired Sean Hannity talking points. Hannity brings up the same topic everyday just adds or removes a thing or two. It's amazing how these so called legal experts on FOX keep convincing Trump that they somehow have insight into the Mueller investigation when even his actual counsel doesn't. What a moron.
