Congress GOP WTF?!

Lauren Boebert Issues A Press Release Saying She Plans To ‘IMEACH’ Joe Biden

Is Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) the dumbest member of Congress. If she isn’t, then she’s at least a close second place to her buddy Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who spent Friday attacking Democrats on the steps of the Capitol before Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) told her:

“Try being a Christian! And try treating your colleagues decently!”

And now we have Boebert issuing a press release to the media in which she called for the removal of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, announcing she would file an article of impeachment against them.

Problem is, in the press release, in BIG BOLD letters, impeach is spelled “IMEACH.”

In case you’re wondering, the rest of the release was also absurd:

“Joe Biden willfully abandoned his duty as President of the United States and violated his constitutional oath to ‘take care that the laws be faithfully executed’ by failing to ensure the national security of the United States and its citizens. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris handed over billions of dollars of American-made weapons to the very scum of the earth that we spent $2 trillion fighting. The Biden regime is not being held accountable. There have been no resignations, no indictments, no investigations, no congressional oversight, no outcry from the mainstream media, and no apologies—so I’m stepping up to hold Biden and Harris accountable by filing articles of impeachment for giving aid and comfort to America’s enemies and colluding with the Taliban.”

However, Boebert’s claptrap about articles of impeachment was overshadowed by her failure to proofread her press release before she shared it with the world.

Twitter quickly gave Lauren a lesson in mockery:

Court Documents Reveal Giuliani’s ‘Associates’ Are Likely To Flip On Him And Others: Report

New court filings in the case against one of Rudy Giuliani’s former “associates” suggest that he’s facing increasing pressure to cooperate with prosecutors and testify against the former New York City mayor for alleged fraud and illegal foreign contacts made by Giuliani in an attempt to bolster the campaign of former President Donald Trump.

Marcy Wheeler explains at her Empty Wheel blog that Giuliani associate Lev Parnas has managed to get his hands on documents from his former boss, but the documents also suggest he’s being pushed to flip on Giuliani in order to lessen his own legal exposure:

“We know the materials withheld under a Rule 16(d) extension are the files seized from Rudy Giuliani and Victoria Toensing’s iCloud accounts (as well as those of some Ukrainians) three ways. First, that’s what Parnas’ lawyer Joseph Bondy demanded in the May 20 request referenced in the footnote. And the government’s response to Bondy’s request explained that Oetken had authorized them under Rule 16(d) to delay sharing the material with the defendants on November 8, 2019. Finally, this is the July 14 order Judge Oetken issued denying Parnas and others the materials.”

While most of the documents have little or no relevance to the fraud trial against Parnas (which will begin on Oct. 4), they clearly show a pattern of behavior in efforts to get Ukrainian ambassador Marie Yovanovitch dismissed from her post, which was the impetus for Trump’s first impeachment:

“That means a substantial amount of what the government is sharing is discovery on the additional charges [another Giuliani associate Igor] Fruman and especially Parnas face, after they’re done with October’s trial and even after Parnas is done with a second, Fraud Guarantee trial. The government is effectively showing Rudy’s grifters what they have to look forward to in a Foreign Agent case involving Rudy Giuliani.

“This is, almost certainly, an effort to convince them to plead guilty and flip on Rudy, which explains why the government is so intent on keeping the trial scheduled for October, to increase the pressure on the grifters.”

However, Giuliani isn’t the only person Parnas may have dirt on. There’s also the possibility that former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo may have played a role, and Trump could also be facing charges for his actions in the attempt to extort Ukraine for damaging information on Joe Biden and members of his family.

The upcoming trial of Parnas could wind up precipitating more criminal charges against Giuliani and people in the orbit of former President Trump. No matter how you slice it, it’s clear that prosecutors are tightening the noose around anyone with a connection to Rudy.

Lindsey Graham Says It Might Be Time To Impeach Kamala Harris

According to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), now that former President Donald Trump has been impeached and acquitted for a second time, Vice President Kamala Harris should be the next public official to face impeachment.

Graham appeared on “Fox News Sunday” and suggested that if Republicans win back control of the House of Representatives in 2022, Harris might be facing impeachment for supporting members of the Black Lives Matter movement who protested the killing of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota, last year:

“The trial record was a complete joke. Hearsay on top of hearsay, and we’ve opened Pandora’s Box for future presidents and if you use this model, I don’t know how Kamala Harris doesn’t get impeached if Republicans take over the House because she actually bailed out rioters, and more of the rioters went back to the streets and broke somebody’s head open, so we’ve opened Pandora’s Box here, and I’m sad for the country.”

Harris didn’t bail out any rioters. The Washington Post destroyed that GOP lie in September of 2020. All she did was tweet out support for the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF), which provides assistance for those accused of crimes.

It’s clear that Lindsey Graham still has his nose stuck so far up Donald Trump’s ass that he can’t tell if it’s day or night. But his allegiance to the failed, one-term president is little more than a play for political cover. If Graham continues to blindly march in lockstep with Trump, he may find out that the country — and his constituents — have passed him by.

Revealed: Trump’s Impeachment Defense Will Be To Blame Black People For Inciting Violence

On Monday, the unprecedented second Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump will begin, and the charge this time will be incitement of insurrection for his role in the January 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol which led to the death of a police officer and four other people.

Since we have the former president’s own words from the speech he gave shortly before thousands of his supporter attacked Congress, what possible defense could Trump’s attorneys use? Simple. He plans to blame black people.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) revealed the Trump legal strategy Sunday during an appearance on Fox News, telling host Chris Wallace:

“I think you’re going to see the Trump defense play video of Rep. Maxine Waters telling crowds to mob Trump administration officials and attack them. They’ll probably show clips of Cory Booker saying get up in their face of these congresspeople. You’ll probably see comments from Rep. Omar celebrating the violence that happened to me when I had six ribs broken and part of a lung removed.”

But did Maxine Waters really urge people to “attack” Trump officials? No. She most certainly didn’t. Here’s exactly what she said:

“If you think we’re rallying now, you ain’t seen nothing yet. You have members of your cabinet being booed out of restaurants. You have protesters taking up at their house. We say no peace, no sleep. No peace, so sleep. And guess what? We’re going to win this battle because while you try to quote the Bible, Jeff Sessions, and others, you really don’t know the Bible. God is on our side. On the side of the children. On the side of what’s right. On the side of what’s honorable. On the side of understanding that if we can’t protect the children, we can’t protect anybody, and so let’s stay the course. Let’s make sure that we show up where ever we have to show up. If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out, and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Did Maxine Waters urge crowds of people to march to the White House and engage violence once they got there? She didn’t Did Ilhan Omar encourage Rand Paul’s neighbor to attack him? Nope.

Of course, it’s no surprise that Trump and his attorneys will attempt to blame African-Americans for his crimes. After all, the Trump family has been discriminating and persecuting black people for decades. It’s what they do.

Just when you think Donald Trump cannot possibly be any more disgusting, he lowers the bar yet again and limbos right under it.

Matt Gaetz Owns Himself When He Vows To Resign From Congress And Defend Trump In Second Impeachment

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) wound up making a complete fool of himself when he bragged that he was willing to resign his seat in Congress and defend former President Donald Trump at next week’s Senate impeachment trial, which begins on Monday, February 8.

Raheem Kassam, who serves as Editor-in-Chief of the far right site The National Pulse, was the first to report on Gaetz’s comments:

Specifically, Gaetz told former Trump staffer Steve Bannon:

“I would leave my House seat, I would leave my home.

“I view this cancellation of the Trump presidency and the Trump movement as one of the major risks to my people.”

Those remarks led to endless mockery directed at the Florida congressman on social media:

Of course, before Matt defends Trump, he’ll probably need to chug a 12-pack of Budweiser and go for a few laps around town so he can get yet another DUI.
