Hey Garland, When You Lay Down With Dogs, You End Up With Fleas [View all]

The House judiciary committee voted last week to hold Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress for failing to turn over audio recordings of pro-Trump special counsel Robert Hur and President Biden in relation to his retention of classified documents.

WTF did you expect Garland? You picked a pro-Trump person to be special counsel and then you allowed him to release a political hit job on President Biden which Magats are using today in campaign ads. Now you are shocked that Magats want more?

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, President Biden had to claim executive privilege to stop the release of the audio.

Oh and your other pro-Trump special counsel, Weiss is about to take President Biden's son to trial next week which had nothing to do with Burisma or Chinese kickbacks.

Merrick Garland has given TSF a lot of BS propaganda that they are using in campaign ads.

The House Oversight committee is also going to hold a vote this week for contempt which opens the way for vote by the whole House.

The contempt of Congress most likely won't go anywhere but it sure helped Magats with talking points.

Hey Garland, how about appointing a pro-Biden special counsel to look into TSF's 651 million dollar deduction on his Chicago Tower, or a sc to look into the fraud behind Truth Social? No, no, no, that would be partisan. In the meantime Hunter Biden is going to trial for not paying his 1.4 million in taxes which he later paid but Trump stole 100 million at a minimum. Where the hell is the non-partisanship?

So your're suggesting that the "base" (ie: the most loyal Democratic voters) are going to withhold their vote? Oopsie Daisy May 20 #52
who said anything about withholding a vote? just b/c dems aren't happy with AG you're jumping orleans May 20 #73
The implication of "there will be consequences" is clear. Oopsie Daisy May 22 #85
you're assuming "there will be consequences" means "i'm withholding my vote." ASSUMING. orleans May 22 #86
I'm not an idiot. The meaning was clear. It's been repeated often enough. Oopsie Daisy May 22 #88
looks like you're going off on another track, to detract. orleans May 22 #89
Nobody suggested otherwise. Oopsie Daisy May 22 #91
