    I have no hope he will recuse. A former president formally asked the SoS of GA to recuse and he didnít. No way Whitaker does with the stakes as high as they are.

    Yeah I am not holding my breath waiting for a recusal. The more I dig around, the more it appears pretty clear this guy is a partisan hack and has been installed to do one thing...protect Trump. He wasnít even #2 in line behind Sessions.

    And he didnít get his coveted seat on the SC, even if heís beloved or lionized by some.

    And Bork is not a hero to the right for his role in the Saturday night massacre.


    óóó

    Trump moving (even) more into abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and corruption territory.

    Gonna be a real sad circus for a while. And ignorant tribalism probably going to swell exponentially.

    Just...vote for the Democrat.

    If his role in the Saturday Night Massacre was an issue for Republicans, he wouldnít have been nominated to the Supreme Court.

    This is the definition of obstruction of justice.

    There is a five year statute of limitations of on obstruction is five years. Trump could still be prosecuted after he loses in 2020.

    They are in on it. They probably knew this was the plan all along.

    I agree (should have added the /s tag), but a weapon against authoritarianism is a good memory.

    This.

    I am beyond disgusted with my former party. Looking back, I canít believe i actually thought that the GOP would put aside partisan politics and take this attack on our democracy seriously. It should have been crystal clear when the reports came out that Mitch McConnell did everything possible to keep Russian interference quiet in the lead up to the 2016 election.

    Fuck you Mitch von Hindenburg.

    Whitaker is a fucking hack.

    Apparently DAG Rosenstein's attorney was spotted at the federal courthouse in DC. Wonder if he's there to file an injunction against this (likely) illegal appointment?
