Anything pertinent to the investigation would have already been disclosed to Mueller. Not sure what everyone is getting all whipped up for.

Only because we may get details yet to be released to the public. Maybe even something that hasn't been communicated to Trump's clown team...I mean lawyers.

We'll be hearing accounts directly from the horse's mouth, not Mueller. The sad part about this now is that lil Donnie will extend the shutdown till the hearing to keep everyone distracted away from Cohen.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Let's see the president's personal lawyer who's already implicated him in a felony and flipped on him is going to be questioned in a public hearing? What could go wrong for Trump?

He’s trying to look like Wolverine, which makes sense since they were both from Canada. But Wolverine is 200 and looks like he’s in his 40s and Cruz is in his 40s but looks like The Blob is wearing Wolverine’s skin.

That's true, but Mueller's team has been disciplined and leak-proof (rightfully so). Separately I see nothing wrong with Congress getting involved with the investigation and bringing transparency to the process. The need to make information public is separate from what Mueller is tasked to do.

Cruz was born in Canada? We really do need a wall on our northern border.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

No matter what Cohen says we'll get Repubs and Trump saying "fake news" and Dems screaming that Trump is "shook" and the end is coming "soon " and nothing will change.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Well, this is what 62 million voters were asking for when they voted for Trump. A tough guy who would stand up to the Dems and not roll over.

I really appreciate Dr. Khalid Muhammad's quote that is sampled at the beginning of Public Enemy's "Night of the Living Baseheads"...

"Have you forgotten, that once we were brought here, we were robbed of our names, robbed of our language, we lost our religion, our culture, our God, and many of us by the way we act, even lost our minds!"

That pretty much sums up where we are collectively as a nation. (we've lost everything to political tribalism)

I am not expecting any big change (although I wouldn't count anything out), but I think it's good for the country that the truth starts coming out. This is only one of many steps.

And let us pretend for a moment that you were only talking about Congressional Democrats:

1. Republicans have no license, no ground at all, to accuse of Democrats of engaging in obstructionist politics after the bullshit the GOP pulled during the Obama presidency when they not only openly engaged in obstructionist politics, they bragged about it and announced it as a core mission.
2. The First Step Act of 2018, the crime reform bill signed into law by Trump just last month. Fox News has called it "a major legislative victory for Trump" and his own son-in-law and "senior adviser" advocated for the law. It passed the Senate 87-12 with all 12 "nay" votes being Republicans and then passed the House 358-36 with all 36 "nay" votes being Republicans.

Or, to sum up, bullshit.

Ted Cruz Lists Rorschach Among His Top 5 Comic Book Characters. Wait, What?!

by Maddy Myers 5:34 pm, July 27th, 2015
3 minutes

Last week, Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz revealed his top five favorite superheroes: Spider-Man, Wolverine, Batman, Iron Man, and … Rorschach. The online version of the interview doesn’t include this list, perhaps because Cruz has since faced some critique for including everyone’s favorite antisocial Watchmen character in his top five.
