Re: Rudy Giuliani

I mentioned this on the election lawsuits thread, but I'm pretty sure the way this ends is with Trump suing Rudy for legal malpractice. They deserve each other.

Re: 2020 Election Lawsuits

Maybe The Kraken is angling for an appeal due to counsel being batshit crazy. Ineffective assistance of counsel is grounds for appeal in a criminal case, because there's no other remedy if your ass is in prison because your lawyer is drunk/incompetent/stupid. In civil cases, the remedy for having a...

At some point the realness of this situation is going to sink in, and the finger-pointing is going to start.

Re: Butterflies and puppy dogs and being nice - repair the divide!

A couple of historical quibbles: 1) We Americans have a bad habit of declaring victory too soon. I would argue the Civil War actually wasn't won, because the aftermath left us with another 100+ years of white southern hegemony over blacks under cover of law. Fundamentally, the country is still divid...

Re: When Trump loses 2020 and refuses to accept the results…

As far as I can tell, there's absolutely nothing preventing Trump from getting John Ratcliffe to read him in on as much highly-classified sources-and-methods intelligence as possible, and then selling that information to the highest bidder in order to settle with his creditors. I mean, yes, that's ...
