Conyak,

Or what? Is that supposed to be a threat? Seems to me that if a Republican is warning you not to investigate something then it definitely needs investigating.

NounsAndWords,

Or hell be forced to stand completely still and silent while definitely not having a seizure.

SpaceNoodle,

No, those were strokes, not seizures.

But, but, but… dehydration 🙄

SpaceNoodle,

Yeah, all his blood dried up into clots.

hydrospanner,

We call it “blood” but it’s really just tar.

SpaceNoodle,

You call it “tar” but it’s really that alien from TNG episode Skin of Evil.

Is that supposed to be a threat?

“You won’t like me if I get… uncivil” is the most Senate threat in the book.

Nevermind that we’ve got sitting Senators who have body-slammed journalists in recent memory.

themeatbridge,

I think he’s implying that exposing the corruption will bring to light corrupt Democrats as well.

Which is such a fucking typical conservative concept, as though the party should defend the corruption within by ignoring corruption everywhere. Jokes on you, motherfucker, because we want to expose and eliminate corruption among Democrats and Republicans.

This. Democrats are not in a cult. Punish everyone who is doing crimes.

Spaghetti_Hitchens,

Can you imagine a congress and SCOTUS that actually acts in the interest of the people?

remus989,

I literally cannot fathom this.

Bakkoda,

I’m 40 so no, not even remotely.

Democrats are not on a cult.

“Vote Blue No Matter Who” *is textbook cultish behavior and has lead to some truly awful candidacies.

The post-Obama turn from casual social liberalism to BlueAnon party jingoism has been absolutely miserable for intra-party Democratic politics. The influx of Bill Kristol / Michael Bloomberg / Lincoln Project anti-Trump Republicans is a poison pill that’s going to do the same damage to the Dems that it did to the GOP under Bush.

I’m already seeing all the toxicity and nastiness in local Dem organizing meetings that I remember my parents complaining about as liberal Republicans during the 2000-era turn.

This may top Mitch’s response as the dumbest take im going to read today

There’s a big difference between “always vote for the Democrat” and “always vote for Trump”.

The only reason I voted blue last time around was because my third-party vote wasn’t anti-Trump enough in 2016. And I will continue voting blue until Republicans understand what Americans truly want from their politicians, and act accordingly. I will probably be voting blue for the rest of my life, but will be pleasantly surprised if there comes a time when I don’t have to.

There’s a big difference between “always vote for the Democrat” and “always vote for Trump”.

A big chunk of the Trump electorate has been increasingly radicalized Republicans. Folks who genuinely believe Democrats are Satanic. The Trump movement works by tapping into this cohort and feeding on their intense anxiety.

Democrats are getting a similar treatment, particularly as old GOP staffers change parties.

I will continue voting blue until Republicans understand what Americans truly want from their politicians

Doggedly putting up candidates like Kristen Sinema, Eric Adams, and Dianne Feinstein to high office won’t compel Republicans to change.

One routinely sides with her conservative friends and calls it bipartisan, another feeds off blue lives matter jingoism and fuels the hysteria, and the third is too senile to present any kind of strategic opposition even presuming her politics don’t suck.

There’s no future for progressive politics in a party that can win as Republican Lite.

teuast,

i agree with some of what you said but i do have to mention that dianne feinstein has been dead for over a month

danc4498,

And the republicans will find something minor and insignificant about a democrat and make a massive deal about it as though they are equivalent issues.

Like Biden’s classified document issue compared to Trumps. Then they say, “See? Both sides are basically the same”.

Maeve,

Tbf, some Democrats don’t want it exposed, nor will resign when they are exposed. Some will run to their yacht to hide from angry constituents and not face intraparty opposition.

Kbobabob,

This got me curious if there were actually any recent cases of this…

Also: Joe Manchin.

UnculturedSwine,

As much of a soulless ghoul he is, he opposes trump. I hope he keeps his position in the Senate until the 2024 election then promptly drops dead.

frezik,

He doesn’t oppose Trump. Not in any meaningful way, anyway. McConnell was the reason Trump got to replace 3 Supreme Court justices. He knows exactly how awful Trump is, but does not care if it means Republicans wield power.

spaceghoti,
@spaceghoti@lemmy.one avatar

He may not like Trump, but he voted twice to protect Trump from the consequences of abusing his executive power while in office. That’s not exactly what I would call “opposition.”

homesweethomeMrL,

Oh yeah? Well let me tell you something Moscow . . .

I am waiting until they can’t reset one of the “blue screens of death” in his operating system. Then we get a Mitch statue that holds a platter of dildos at parties.

Iwasondigg,

Fuck all the way off back to Moscow, Mitch.

Viking_Hippie,

Palpatine thinks he is relevant to this.

He KNOWS he’s relevant, that’s why he’s threat-begging them to look the other way.

AkaBobHoward,
@AkaBobHoward@lemmy.world avatar

Oh I get what you mean but I think the word is culpable LOL

Viking_Hippie,

Both, actually. His culpability makes him relevant to the inquiries 🤷

You are my kind of people 💯

You are right!

GardeningSadhu,

He warns them? " Do you want a decent healthcare system and good education! I"m warning you that’s what’s gonna happen if you end this kind of corruption!"

AkaBobHoward,
@AkaBobHoward@lemmy.world avatar

Holy shit, right? Wouldn’t it be terrible if government started to actually “drain the swamp” and do someing to help mass amounts of people instead of just the wealthy few. What a novel concept. (Just in case /s)

Marleyinoc,

Criminals and their coconspirators don’t want to be investigated? Shocking!

Steve,

Senator or animatronic halloween decoration? You decide!

Asked for comment, McConnell said

thorbot,

Or what? He’s gonna molt another layer of skin at us? Fuck off Glitch Bitch

A_Random_Idiot,

That, to me, is more than enough reason to issue more subpoenas and investigate even further.

Raiderkev,

Did he manage to say the whole sentence, or did he freeze and need a reboot?

thorbot,

They just unplugged him and plugged him back in, problem solved

mechoman444,

Have you tried turning it off and on again?

DeadpanSlim,

Beware the dead-eyed stare of Senator Screensaver.

KammicRelief,

BSOD

the_q,

Or what? You guys will do a worse job?

firewyre,

Suck a cock old man
