Monday open thread—Jerry Nadler drops the bomb
Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) just went gangsta on the Trump crime circle and “requested” documents from over 70 persons/entities as the House Judiciary Committee investigates Donald Trump’s malfeasance. Everyone from Erik Prince to the NRA is being Hoovered up in the document request.
Make no mistake: This is as much a “request” as eating three square meals a day is a “suggestion”. If the requests are ignored, expect subpoenas.
No doubt the Trump crime family will howl about persecution. Criminals often do so when their criminality is finally brought to light.
Elections have consequences, and Republicans are about to face theirs for the low point to which they’ve brought the Republic. They now have a choice: they can either put country above party and cooperate with the Democrats, or do what they’ve been doing for decades and self-serve and delay in a futile effort to keep their power. I think I know which they’ll do, but I’m always open to surprises.
This is your open thread.
