I bet Trump is calling all his closest aquaintences and talking their ear off now that he has had to go cold turkey off twitter.

I would have said friends but everyone knows he has none.

I give Baron a pass there's still hope he'll turn into an environmental lawyer or something like that to piss old man.

Also, he was a hell of pilot and gave Snoopy all he could handle in their duels.

Fun Fact, I owned this record growing up -

Problem is, he's going to be calling Senators and threatening them and their families if they vote to convict.

Georgia's Senators could be seated as soon as Monday. Then it's not Mitch's show anymore starting at 12:01 on Wednesday.
Why the delay? Why not Monday? I guess one day doesn't matter much.

Anyway, according to this: https://www.democrats.senate.gov/20...ro-forma-sessions-and-tuesday-january-19-2021

it looks like noon on Tuesday (Jan 19) is when they'll start their first real (non-pro forma) session, and when the GA senators could be sworn in.
Thanks.

Will be interesting to see how Mitch plays it - he detests Dump, they haven't spoken in a month and the talking heads said he could cajole/whip up the 17 votes if he really wanted to. I'd love to see him stick it to Dump and show him how to really play Game of Thrones.

Political chess - Mitch is despicable, but very smart.

I'm not sure how long a senate trial was going to take, but we're only talking about five days "lost" (today through Mon) by not starting it today, for example.

I guess I don't see the difference between getting things rolling on Jan 19 under Mitch's command, or Jan 20 under Schumer's command.

My guess is MItch will do anything possible that it doesn't start on his watch, so he can say, I didn't start it etc....People on TV are saying things will settle down between now and then, however I'm not buying it - as I'm sure there will be much more heinous stuff come out and I'd be surprised if something doesn't happen in DC or at a State Capital, which will just make it more indelible.

What delay? The Dems don't have a tie-breaking vote until 12:01 on Wednesday. Unless you think Mike Pence would vote with them. Actually, I'm not sure when the Dems will actually have 50 +1 because Kamala's replacement would have to be sworn in too.

It doesn't matter when it starts, it is for show from this point on, it takes 2/3 or 67 to remove from office and that is never going to happen

Unlikely, but possible if Mitch decides he wants it to happen.

Interesting article regarding radicalization -

Online misinformation that led to Capitol siege is 'radicalization,' say researchers | amNewYork (amny.com)

Online misinformation that led to violent unrest at the Capitol last week has gone beyond false claims and has reached the point of “radicalization,” researchers told a Reuters Next panel on Tuesday.

“This is not about false claims, or even conspiracies, but many of the people at the Capitol are now part of a completely alternate reality,” said Claire Wardle, co-founder of anti-disinformation non-profit First Draft.

She added that people must stop thinking about online conspiracies as existing separately from real-world harm: “They’re not just sitting at home in their pajamas clicking ‘yes I agree,’ they’re out there with … guns and pipe bombs.”
