The only person to have worked on 3 impeachment probes says that Trump's conduct has been "more serious" than Nixon's was.

Read:  "I DO NOT LIKE HIM"

Ken Starr: "Like Nixon in '74, Ken Starr Wonders If GOP Senators Ready to Call for Trump Resignation." (This was a couple months after he thought the impeachment effort was doomed.)

99-Year-Old Nuremberg Prosecutor Calls Trump's Detention of Children a 'Crime Against Humanity'
"What could cause more great suffering than what they did in the name of immigration law?"

Quote
President Trump’s actions are far worse than those of President Richard Nixon. If Congress fails to act, the current president and all future incumbents will be emboldened to act as though they are above the law because he and they will be. The evidence publicly available establishes impeachable offenses beyond a reasonable doubt and leaves no alternative but for Congress to act. Impeachment is the appropriate remedy, not censure.
~Watergate prosecutor

They must all just "not like" Trump, huh?

Like I said - you don't like her, but you cannot contradict what she said.

Your argument is not that he is competent or qualified, merely that Trump can cheat - yes, cheat - the system so long as the Senate refuses to do its job.

Does the shit ever get caught in your mouth when you talk like this?

‘Secret and unaccountable’: Where some immigrant teens are being taken by ICE

Quote
The human rights researcher had heard that ICE agents occasionally swept up migrant kids and locked them up in juvenile detention facilities, but she had no idea why.

One of the places ICE supposedly housed these young people, Godoy learned, was a few hours from her home in Seattle. She searched online for information about the detentions, but couldn't find anything that explained what was going on. She then filed a series of public records requests with officials at the juvenile detention center closest to her, hoping they could shed light on what ICE was doing and why these minors were being held in places run more like jails than the shelters most migrant children end up in when they are detained. She had specifically requested detailed detainee files, with names and personal information redacted, and the facility was ready to share them with her.

But what happened next stunned her: ICE blocked the facility from sharing the records and the federal government even went to court to keep the information secret.

Unbeknownst to Godoy, she had stumbled upon an obscure pocket of the immigration system, where little is known, and little is divulged.

For more than a decade, ICE has been taking a small number of immigrant teens it deems to be dangerous far from their families and detaining them for months at a time.

For immigration attorneys and human rights experts such as Godoy, the practice is alarming.

"I may not object to the fact they are being held," said Godoy, director of the Center for Human Rights at the University of Washington. "But I object to the fact that nobody can even know who they are (and) why."

But the GOP won, so it's okay with Kid.

Kiid is a warm bucket of fascist spit.

The only reason to read kiid’s posts is to keep up with the thugs too cowardly to openly wear their jack boots, the back shooters with piss running down their legs.

He has halitosis of the mind and syphilis of the soul.

If that’s too poetical for you, here’s a more clinical breakdown of the prick and sick fucks like him

I hadn't heard of pepper spray balls before.
Seems they're being deployed in HK now.
(along with a blue dye designed to identify suspects).
I'm sure China, US and others are taking note of how these new-fangled approaches are working on the streets of HK.

A pepper spray ball or pepper-spray projectileare potent but non-lethal weapons that contain powdered chemical that are designed to help subdue an attacker. Used in many law enforcement agencies, they may also be used as a means of bringing down a suspect who is fleeing a crime scene, or to intervene in some sort of situation where violence is involved.

A launching device that bears a strong resemblance to paintball guns deploys pepper balls. Generally, the launchers are accurate for a range of up to sixty linear feet. The pepper-spray ball will break upon contact with any surface and begin to spread chemicals that can cause severe irritation to the eyes and the nose. The main ingredient in the pepper spray balls is known as PAVA. Essentially a concentrated extract of the capsaicin that gives cayenne peppers their heat, PAVA is strong enough to immobilize just about anyone of any physical size. When a pepper-spray pellet breaks, it can saturate a diameter of two hundred feet.

Unlike the small vials of pepper spray that many people carry for personal safety, an individual does not have to come into direct contact with the pepper-spray pellet in order to be exposed to the effects. The rate of saturation is quick and thorough, with the burning sensation beginning immediately. This makes the use of pepper balls ideal when there is an obvious danger of attempting to subdue an individual through physical contact, but the situation is not severe enough to warrant the use of firearms
