1. They tried to introduce this bill a while back and McConnell refused to let it go forward.

Hope they're successful this time.

4. McConnell is a horrible excuse for a human being

but I don't know why he won't work with this legislation. Doesn't he know how bad it will look when Cheetolini fires Mueller and the Congress does NOTHING?? And they will do nothing. Mitch is shoving through as many of the reactionary judges as he can before it all comes crashing down.

One of them looks like an old comic book "handshake buzzer" inadvertently/on purpose went off in his front pants pocket. The other looks like a cartoon turtle.

25. Yup



Reminds me of the old joke: What's the difference between a lawyer and a carp? One is a bottom-dwelling scum sucker. The other one is a fish.

Ba-dum-pshhhh!

27. The turtle face ML is stonewalling it again.

 

But Rump has small balls and does not have the guts to fire Mueller. I think Sessions will be fired first.

State, office and party are always helpful to include in the OP.

7. There are two bills that would limit how Trump or the DOJ can fire Mueller.

But the GOP leadership is stalling and trying to downplay the need for any legislation, saying they donít really believe Trump will fire Mueller.

Maybe they can pass the bills retroactively?

12. Interesting. Cambridge Analytica embedded foreign nationals in NC to get Tillis elected.

My guess is that Thom is quite worried about what investigations might find and he wants Mueller to know he's helping protect him. Very helpful, Thom is being.

22. That is certainly a possibility....

In all the time I've watched him, I've never seen crazy Thom get all bipartisan until this legislation with Chris Coons. Interesting. There's a lot more to this story than one Rethuglican finally seeing the light.

15. Somebody needs to sit Mitch down in a chair and talk to him very slowly.

This is about our Country, Mitch. It is not about anyone's Party.

If that doesn't work, I would suggest a bucket of cold water poured over his head.

Anything to bring him out of his netherworld and back to the real world.

18. Oh, I thought you were going with the "enhanced interrogation" technique

Water slowly poured over a towel over his head. Of course, being a turtle, he might actually find that sorta nice.

21. Tillis

Tillis won his election by a very small margin. He knows that any swing towards the left is a death sentence for him. He has to hold the middle ground here.

Not in Raleigh and not in DC until now. There's a lot more to this story than meets the eye.

26. I was surprised too

I always thought he was one of the wacko-birds.

I remember when Rand Paul was elected and I thought it couldn't get any crazier than that! Then here came Thom Tillis, Joanie Ernst, sigh...
