Another day, another GOP elected official being a dick about women:

Yeah, telling a female reporter that the teen boys "could have a lot of fun" with her is so clever.

Counting the seconds for Ward to LOL about it while Kid tells us it's an overreaction or to just stop, and Bambi insists the woman had it coming for trying to work near the dick.

Newsweek - all over that Michigan Senate

Keep up the good work, guys and gals.

Not that he needed to.  "High crimes and misdemeanors" requires no breaking of a specific law, just a failure to keep the public trust and perform the duties of office.  But the Impoundment Control Act does add some legal force to the overall case of malfeasance.  And it specifically underscores that the ICA "does not permit the President to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law." 

And there's still obstruction, which I think the Democrats need to work a little harder at explaining and clarifying.  I'm still seeing GOP Senators and others in front of a camera saying "the House should have finished its job, so that no further witnesses are needed.  Lazy old House, nah nah nah."  It is important to clarify why this is incorrect - that the WH refused subpoenas, coerced potential witnesses,  and blocked legal document releases which hobbled the House committees in the completion of their duties.  More witnesses are needed in any case where highly relevant new material comes to light and new witnesses are available - especially, when the Senate portion is, in fact, the actual trial.

It did not take long for Pocahontas to play the sexist card. Bernie said something two years ago, really?   Playing to liberal elite women who have been passed over?  Just taking her lead competition down? Hissy fit?

Nope.

Not all about her race...

'Uppity'?

Probably not the best choice of words for an American in America to be using.

"Racist", and "sexist"?
Might as well fire both cards, might hit something that will do as an excuse/s.

Allegedly 'speaking inappropriately to household staff', who in 'rank' would be below a Duchess, is not 'uppity'... more like 'rude', 'offensive'....no matter the 'color'/race of a Duchess.

Gee, Trump broke the law.

Who knew?!

I had heard the law said the money needed to be allotted by end of the fiscal year

GAO has an opinion.  OK.
