Did we expect the Republicans to remove Trump from office? Yes it was a slam dunk case. Yes he deserves removal. But was that ever going to happen? No. So what was the best case scenario for Dems?

Is this the best case? Like Trump said, he could shoot someone on fifth Avenue and get away with it. I believe that to be the case with this Republican Party. They would not remove him if killed someone. So what were us Democrats really hoping for? 

Doing the right thing. Setting the record straight. Trying even in the face of impossible odds.

That quote was made in 2016 in reference to how loyal his voter base is-

"You know what else they say about my people? The polls, they say I have the most loyal people. Did you ever see that? Where I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay? It’s like incredible," Trump said.

Best case scenario for Dems was at least showing the American public a witness with direct knowledge that could corroborate and confirm the charges brought, even knowing it wouldn’t change the outcome, but would deeply affect those few swing voters. But I think the bigger damage will be done by the Republicans on the other side. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize they’re all in bed with Trump.

I’m more worried about the precedent this has now set forth. I think the Supreme Court needs to settle and implement some outlines when it comes to executive privilege and this fallacy of having absolute immunity.

I’d appreciate your recommendations on best email marketing software. We are a small subsidiary based in the U.K. and to date we’ve relied on software of our parent company which is based in the US.

If anyone has any recommendations I’d be very grateful. Thank you

I just found out The FDA banned Juuls in June. Not a Juul smoker, had a puff from my friends once 4 years ago., but how are Cigarettes still OK to be sold, but not Juuls? Even if you say they can’t be sold to kids. I believe they’re already not as they fall under the same sale regulation as Cigarettes, but if not, then pass a law. It just looks to me like it’s just Cigarette companies killing off their competition

This is a fact that fans of Trump either chose to ignore or just don’t give a damn. I find it embarrassing that people are enthusiastic about a man that proclaims that he beat it ( with a heavy dose of privilege and tax payers money) and mind numbingly claims that ‘don’t be afraid of covid’ ?

This is the reality people that our president don’t like to tweet about
