So?
I should have said "accusing the Lincoln Project of grifting is a bit much when it comes from Trump's enablers".
You’re fine... I meant, “So what if they’re grifters?”

Republicans working to reelect Trump and maintain the majority in the Senate are hitting back, alleging that the former GOP operatives are “grifters” who have taken up electing Democrats because they lost their cushy establishment jobs when Trump was elected.
So?

Re: The Lincoln Project and Other GOP Groups Against IMPOTUS - Ads, Memes,TV

Has anyone seen any LP ads on tv? I usually watch Hulu and only see the campaign ads, usually three Biden to one trump. Speaking of which, I'm now seeing a new trump ad which features a woman of color sitting silently, holding up large placards explaining she's afraid to tell anyone she's voting fo...

Re: USA v Michael T. Flynn; USDC for DC; False Statements to FBI; Guilty Plea

Wall claims " legislative oversight , impeachment, and elections" are sufficient checks on the possibility of bribery or corruption. I'm impressed that the judges didn't start laughing.

Re: Bundy related gossip and discussion

I don't believe Ammo's claim. Ditto; his claim suggests that just he was allowed to see the evidence, as if he alone was being granted special access. When, in all likelihood, he was granted access because he asked, which anyone could do. (What's the point in "rallying?" if the evidence is readily ...

Absolutely. And the pet has little recourse. He can go to the Board for Correction of Military Records to get his paperwork corrected, but he can’t get his orders cancelled. So even without Trump’s interference, Gallagher had a mechanism for getting his Trident back (although I doubt he would have b...

Re: MO Gov. Greitens indicted for felony invasion

Question: can a future administration / commander-in-chief review questionable decisions made by his predecessor, or are they final? Could he let those black sheep know that they are not welcome and better submit their resignations? I'll defer to the military folk, but my WAG is no. In a normal wor...

"For completeness," Flynn's opposition response to Sullivan's PREB. I read the federal government also responded , in a manner generally consistent with Flynn's.
