Resistance Roundtable Talks Guns, Democracy and the Fascist Threat

Panel: Ruthanne Baumgartner, Scott Harris and Richard Hill

The Fulton County DA needs to get the judge to hold Rudy Giuliani and Lindsey Graham in contempt for ignoring their subpoenas. (Rudy lied about flying.)

And the Senate needs to kick Graham, a man who shows contempt for the American judiciary, off the Senate Judiciary Committee.
@RepAndyBiggsAZ Why did Trump plead the fifth over 400 times yesterday?

And why was Lindsey Graham a no show at the Fulton County Grand Jury yesterday?
Lindsey Graham did not show up to his scheduled appearance yesterday at the Fulton County courthouse.

If Lindsey Graham won’t cooperate with our judicial system, he shouldn’t be allowed to serve on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The Daily Beast’s Zachary Petrizzo writes, “merrick garland is out here playing 5d chess while trump & his team play checkers.”

USA Today opinion columnist Michael J. Stern summed up Garland’s action today:

“Merrick Garland to Trump: I’m going to let the world see the gobs of evidence we have that led to the search warrant…unless you object…in which case you will be signaling to the world that you have gobs to hide.” #TrumpFBIRaid #trumpsearchwarrant

Because it's typical Trump incompetent, lying, corrupt buffoonery. And now he has led another one of this armed cult follower/insurrectionists into a 6-hour standoff with the FBI Ohio and death. All for his sick, depraved mind and soul that is rotten to the core. How America has gotten to this state is beyond me. Could it be lead in the water, like Rome in its end days?
