iPhone : If the office of the US Attorney for the District of Columbia is not already investigating Donald Trump’s role and culpability in the Jan. 6 insurrection, it should open a probe today. This minute.

iPhone : Big picture: GOP senators won’t hold Trump accountable. No real surprise. But we lived through a violent authoritarian insurrection. In some official forum there MUST be testimony, under oath, about what happened on January 6. We cannot just “move on.”

iPhone : But there was no reason for COVID relief to be delayed. Senate could have recessed the trial for a month to give time for depositions etc. Plenty of time to pass a relief bill. twitter.com/jolynnsherman3…

iPhone : If they had the votes to move forward (which is unclear) Democrats had nothing to lose by calling witnesses. Zero. And there was no real downside for President Biden and his agenda.

iPhone : The only reason I can think of for Schumer to cave on witnesses would be that the four GOP allies were insisting he accept the stipulation. If so, that’s life; if not, that’s surrender.

Twitter Web App : If Trump "was not in any way, shape or form instructing these people to fight," as his lawyer says, then when they attacked police officers and invaded the Capitol, why didn't he tell them to stop fighting?

Twitter Web App : This is getting ridiculous. They're going to show these same irrelevant video clips all day until we all scream. And they throw in those clips of Madonna and Chris Cuomo because... why?
