“The distinguishing characteristic of the House Republican Caucus right now is that whenever you say, ‘Could they be that stupid?’ the answer—always—is, ‘Oh yes!’”

Vice presidential humor: In a @VanderbiltU lecture with @JMeacham, @algore notes Trump's claim that @VP Mike Pence could overturn the Electoral College results. "If a vice president could do that, I would have been tempted to use that power 20 years ago," he jokes.

Quoted @galendruke

Based on today’s reporting, statements from lawmakers in both parties and comments from law enforcement, it really doesn’t seem like the public fully knows what happened inside the capitol on January 6th.

This is correct. And, remember, Dems have control of Congress. There will be lots and lots of hearings for the next months. For those thinking about their vote on impeachment—this information is going to come out.

By a vote of 223-205, the House just passed our 25th Amendment Resolution urging Vice President Pence to convene and mobilize the Cabinet to act on the crisis of President Trump’s incapacity. He is clearly incapable of meeting the duties of his office.

Rep. @Liz_Cheney said the president was solely to blame for the U.S. Capitol attack, and the deaths. “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution,” she said, "I will vote to impeach the President."

To help heal racial wounds, U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn is pushing to make "Lift Every Voice and Sing,'' the Black national anthem, America's national hymn.

Interestingly enough, James Weldon Johnson, the lyricist for Lift Every Voice once suggested this. I don’t think it’s a good idea (at all lol) but it’s not the first time the idea was presented.

Need to stop calling January 6 a “riot.” It was an insurrection and a terrorist attack on the Republic. Words, as we have been reminded anew, matter.

Josh Hawley has reaped the benefits of every advantage, connection, and privilege America has to offer. Now he’s closing the door behind him.

What is the logic behind Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan refusing to give campaign money to Democrats--because Republicans supported an unconstitutional attack on the US election?
