    They may be trying to play the distraction game, but this isn’t big enough. Hell I worry what he may do to distract from this, he is a master of diverting attention.

    They lose nothing by releasing it. Opponents will deride it as undignified and unpresidential, supporters will love it for being straight talk.

    But you don't understand. He's so proud of it.

    He was handing out copies to everyone.

    r/Conservative is arguing about it right now and it's a glorious shitshow. That place has defended some retarded shit, so for them to be split over something like this is telling of how bad the situation is. I only wish I had some popcorn.

    I love how no ones even bringing up Mulvaney’s admission of quid pro quo.

    And his subsequent statement rofl.

    At this stage I don’t even know what to say.... it’s just embarrassing.

    Will it even matter? I’m really interested to see how the trial goes in the senate. I’m still waiting for them all to turn on him at the last minute.

    This has been the defining modus operandi of Trump's government for the last bit. To wit:

    1. No, we didn't do that, that's absurd.
    2. No, we didn't do that, you did that.
    3. Even if we did do that, we think it is perfectly legal for us to do. (But not for you.)
    4. We're draining the swamp, by any means necessary.
    5. We did do it, we're proud of it, what of it, MAGA MAGA MAGA.

    Order is rough, overlap occurs.

    So far, though, I think betting on actual removal also comes with free offers to buy the Brooklyn Bridge. Polling movement has somewhat slowed down.

    It was all over NPR this morning, not sure about TV news, as I just don't watch it.

    Goddamn muthafuckin paywalls. Thanks for the summary. Jesus Christ.

    I honestly might not feel so bad if these guys were even a hair better at hiding what they’re doing. But as it is, over half of us (in the US) are almost literally watching them blow smoke up our collective assholes, and yet we still know impeachment won’t make it through the Senate and everything will be dismissed or turned on its head. Hell, Senator Palpatine McConnell is already talking about when he wants to have the Senate side trial and investigation cleared up by the holidays. As in a month from now.

    Forgot about paywalls. Here's a copy/paste of the first half of the article.

    Not at all, I just think it's worth reading haha. You always think it can't get worse, then it does.

    Edit: I actually meant to post this in the propaganda thread. My bad. Could a mod move the post or something?

    I saw McConnell published a thing criticising Trump on foreign policy. Now I'm wondering if we should read into this and see if as a break in the line, or if he might have some sort of other reason to do this.

    I'm going to be honest, if it took them until now to 'stop' supporting Trump, then I call 100% bullshit on their motive being anything but covering their own ass now that tides look to be turning.
