Re: Who's going to be the NEXT one to be underbussed?

I was thinking about landing a fixed wing on it. If it was moving at about 45 MPH relative to the wind, you could set a Cessna down on it almost like a helicopter. The bus moving at the stall speed would pretty cool but you'd have to hit the brakes right away to keep the plane down. Have you seen t...

Constitutional law question here. By now it is clear that Sondland is in deep derp. At the very least, he is guilty of perjury. What if he Is called back to testify and invokes the 5th A. Who has the power to grant him immunity in order to compel his testimony? I, for one, don't care about him. His...

D) McConnell moves to dismiss. A majority of the Senate approves the motion. Impeachment dismissed; no need for witnesses. I guess that's possible, although McConnell has already said that he wouldn't do that. I think it would be a political disaster for the R Senators up for reelection. Would it b...

So, lets spin this out to its logical conclusion. The House authorizes the next step in the impeachment. Schiff reissues the subpoenas to the uncooperative witnesses, who continue to be uncooperative. The House, along party lines, impeaches Trump for several of his many sins. The trial in the Senate...

I was wondering on the Circuit does it go to a certain judge, the presiding judge, or do they pick a panel. (The rules infer) a motions panel, and its members change monthly. A stay pending appeal, IIRC, requires two judges to grant. In other circuits, judges "volunteer" for the motions panel (in l...

First the direct court (not likely, IMO), then the circuit court (also not likely), then SCOTUS.
