Hard to harmonize with it when you’re already trying to fight back the “I’m rapidly getting choked up” reflex.

WHAT A GREAT SONG!!!!! And YES, I’m SHOUTING!!!!!

Lordy Lordy is that woman wonderful…

...and bring it out whenever there's good national/international news.

I wanted to play in November 2016 so bad.

Violins, Cello's, Horns, Keyboards, Guitars & drums, this had it all.

I've never heard this song before this posting. Thanks!

for Garland because I said that just because we were not privy to all he was doing did not mean that he was doing nothing.

Looks like he was doing something without giving out all the details in a press conference. Imagine that!

The DOJ took it to a Federal Grand Jury. My opinion: They are going after him.

he is expected to turn himself in on Monday.

I think he will because I believe that he is still going to try to use executive privilege as a defense. He was not on TFG's staff at the time of the insurrection, but I am betting that he will claim that he was an "advisor."

Almost guaranteed that Meadows will appeal to SCOTUS.

So the outcome will depend on the SCOTUS ruling regarding executive privilege for a FORMER president.

Count on the RWnuts to turn this into a circus with pearl clutching claims of political persecution and the end of democracy.
