It's like C-SPAN but better. You can pause, skip ahead, and save it.

At one point one of them essentially called the house managers criminals, with the clip being shown featured Neguse..

I’ve been skipping the trial today because I simply don’t want to hear their lies. That’s all they have. After this I might try watching it.

43. I avoided watching today for the same reason.

I knew it would just make me rage and didn't have any desire to subject myself to that. I am grateful that there are others who are able and willing to watch and share info with the rest of us. Those people (you know who you are) are performing a valuable service and I am very thankful for it.

29. I really like Plaskett and think she has done a great job

Last edited Fri Feb 12, 2021, 08:12 PM - Edit history (1)

That said, I believe the statement in the first video has a factual error. I can't find anything confirming the existence of a John Lewis statue in the U.S. Capitol either now or on Jan. 6. There is an ongoing movement to have the Alexander Stephens statue replaced with one of John Lewis.

What the insurrectionists desecrated on Jan. 6 was a placard memorial of Lewis on an easel outside Steny Hoyer's office.

I know this might seem a picayune point but I think it important having details correct when you know opponents will seize on any nit to pick.

While rioters shamefully destroyed this tribute to my brother John Lewis yesterday, let his words continue to echo in the halls of Congress and in our hearts. Let us always stand up, speak up, and speak out against injustice and for our democracy.

under Jamie Raskin who said she was an A+ student.

So proud of the job our Dems are doing! Wonder how will future historians write about the soulless garbage that is the Republican party?

I am proud of our dems too. It is nice to see competence on the right side of history. Gives me much comfort.

When your entire value system is based on being white, it has got to hurt when a PERSON like this shows that SHE is smarter, more eloquent, thoughtful and compassionate than they could ever be. I miss Barbara Jordon, but with the likes of Stacey Plaskett fighting the good fight, I have hope for the future.
