I would love for him to fire this one too.

It looked like he was winging it.

Looks like Trump is scraping the bottom of the barrel in his search for lawyers.

Iam not a lawyer but one wouldn't need to be to know Castor isn't much of one either. I happened to be listening during his boring babble and I shook my head a few times wondering if my ears were working right when he would contradict himself, say things that were actually detrimental to his client etc., etc. apparently Trump was just a little PO'ed. I get the idea that these days a proper lawyer wouldn't touch Trump with a 10 foot pole.

A lot of Trump's ass kissing senators are lawyers. They won't even step up to defend him.

Some of the videos that have been shown so far are pretty damning toward Trump, and overall pretty scary when you consider this is America. and of course there are enough Repubs. that claim they don't give a **** that unlikely Trump will have to suffer the consequences. However, I suspect there will be some legal/criminal charges he won't be able to ignore so easily.

It's the GOP that's suffering the consequences of Trump's presidency.

I think it's fair to say that GOPer's who maintain Trump's impeachment is dividing the nation are just conflating/confusing their party with the country.  They're that full of themselves.

This MT Greene is quite the loop **** eh. No wonder she and Trump are good buddies. I see now she finally retracts a few previous statements for instance admitting a plane did hit the Pentagon. Let's see how her vote goes today.
Did she?
She gave a sort of non-apology apology...

In her fake apology she admitted 9/11 happened (despite spreading a 'no plane' conspiracy earlier), that school shootings are terrible (despite claiming 'false flag' previously), etc. But did little to address her role in addressing the details of her falsehoods (in other words, her comments were extremely general in nature), and (if I remember correctly) did not apologize for comments she made suggesting killing Obama and Pelosi, or that Omar couldn't be American because she was Muslim.

She also tried to shift the blame to social media for being the ones to expose her to these false ideas, and claimed that because they were in the past they don't matter.

Better yet, maybe they can do both!!!

From: https://www.cnn.com/2021/02/10/politics/trump-georgia-criminal-investigation-election/index.html
A prosecutor in Fulton County, Georgia, has opened a criminal investigation into former President Donald Trump for his "attempts to influence the administration of the 2020 Georgia general election."...The investigation comes as Raffensperger's office has launched its own probe into Trump's attempts to overturn the election, an inquiry that includes a review of both that call and another phone call the then-President made to a Georgia election official.

Georgia has been a pretty right-leaning state in the past, so I hate to get my hopes up. But maybe Stubby McBonespurs managed to ****-off enough people that they might actually follow through.

When a prosecution depends on whoís in power in some states, I think the country is well on its way to becoming a failed state. 

Republicans ignoring illegal/corrupt acts done by Republicans is not much of a justice system.

Who needs a lawyer when your co-conspirators are just going to set you free anyway?

As far as the trial goes but this trial is more about what kind of image it leaves for the Republican Party.

Who cares about image when your voters literally think the other party is full of baby-raping Satanists?

Their voters aren't the entire US population. Only 60% vote and some 70-80% of Republicans (their voters) believe that garbage.

So yeah.

Who cares about image when your voters...blah blah blah.
