    Coup in the USA?

    But if they went back to their hotel and heard that a friend went to the Capitol, then they are not a witness and they have no direct knowledge. That's hearsay.

    Coup in the USA?

    As far as I know obstruction charges only happen when someone actively thawrts an investigation by, for example, destroying evidence or intimidating witnesses. If you refuse to testify when subpoenaed and can not rely on either self-incrimination or privlided communication as a basis to prevent...

    Coup in the USA?

    This is an unusual situation at best, and I am not a lawyer but a case could be made for the group immediately outside of the doors of the House chamber trying to break in but probably not for someone involved in a different felony like assaulting the police that were trying to hold the crowd...

    Coup in the USA?

    If a police officer kills a person who is attempting to commit a felony, then they can charge all of the accomplices for felony murder, as their actions resulted in a loss of life. The death of the terrorist is the necessary felony even if it was a justified police shooting.

    Coup in the USA?

    One aide to Pelosi reported a laptop missing that was only used for presentations. If that is the same one, we should be fine as no one has every gotten useful information from a PowerPoint.

    He is technically the Commander in Chief of the US armed forces, so Ft. Leavenworth might be the most appropriate venue. It is designated for national security related prisoners.

    So no dragging him out of the Oval Office, but he should be kicked out of Mara Lago in a few months for violating the zoning restrictions.

    If half the Republicans were to boycott the trial, the Senate could convict with only Democrats in support. They only need 51 Senators to have a quorum, and a conviction requires 2/3 of those present.

    Coup in the USA?

    Washington issued a blanket pardon for Insurrection after the Whiskey Rebellion, and Johnson did the same after the Civil War. Both Ford and Carter issued pardons for draft evasion. In all of those instances, the pardons were around a specific set of dates and for a specific crime. When Ford...

    WTF Why are all the nutcases after Bill Gates all of a sudden?

    He has gone all in for standardized testing and vouchers. He's done great things for public health and is progressive on tax policy, but he's fallen in with the worst people trashing public education.

    5 O’Clock Somewhere

    If I have a cocktail, it's probably a vodka gimlet (vodka and lime syrup). Occasionally a mojito. The craft beer scene is now overrun with IPAs. An IPA is what you make when you don't understand how hops work. I prefer darker, malty beers. Stouts, porters, and red/brown ales.
