Trump going down harder than Sequoia timber.

And before people go on lamenting…Judge Sentelle was appointed by Reagan (Republican), Judge Henderson by HW Bush (Republican), and there's only one (D) appointed judge - Judge Wilkins - on this court. 2/3 judges are Republican appointed.

Appeals court says House can obtain Trump's taxes from the IRS:

Meanwhile, Democrats have passed legislation to fight inflation, reduce healthcare costs, save lives, and fight fraud.

But yeah, the other side wants a civil war because their cult leader is a criminal.

Hope all his supporters rush on down to Mar-a-Lago and set up on the golf course and grounds to be there for their leader. They have the pool and dining areas to use. I know DJT would be thrilled for them to come on down.

After Mar-a-Lago search, users on pro-Trump forums agitate for ‘civil war’ — including a Jan. 6 rioter-

@TonyStark Sounds like Veal Team Six is getting jumpy in their mom’s basement. Next they’ll be sending DOJ threatening selfies of stashes and Italian loafers.

"Banana Republic tactics" are what insurrectionists were using, Scott Perry.

@YinzPittsburghers
You can't seize the cell phone of a sitting congressman without a lot of supporting evidence. No judge would ever allow it. It takes time to develop that evidence and while Garland is moving slowly, he is also moving surely.

Suck it, Scott.

Donald Trump finally got his wish that he has been adamantly voicing since 2016 that the FBI confiscate classified documents being held in outside, unsecured places.

@TonyStark
Damn, I have one of those terrible low flush toilets.

I can't flush all those presidential documents that I have been saving.

@TonyStark
Republicans have had ONE message for last 7 years: The mishandling of classified material must end with somebody being "locked up."

Extortion? Money laundering? Violent coup? Doesn't matter. Mishandling classified docs is the only consequential crime.

Today? Poof, it's gone.

"So there are five people taking the Fifth Amendment. Like you see on the mob, right? You see the mob takes the Fifth. If you’re innocent why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”

While Republicans shriek about their desire to defund law enforcement, Democrats are building back the US. When you want progress, go to the makers, not the GOP takers.

The new CHIPS and Science Act will bring semiconductor chip manufacturing to the U.S.:

@TonyStark Seriously, there’s nothing he could say that makes him look more guilty.

I'm reading one indignant Trump loyalist comment after another complaining that this event is "unprecedented."

Not one of them seems to appreciate that the fact that it's never been necessary for the FBI to search the property of a ex-president before now is a good thing. Guess they're in too much of a snit to be thinking about that.

If they had any sense, they'd be distancing themselves as far as possible and being quiet. Because their current reaction indicates that what the FBI found at Mar-a-Lago is devastating.

Trump World hasn’t thought through its ‘planted evidence’ claim-

@TonyStark “EVIDENCE? I may have left a couple a magic cards but planted evidence, never!

@TonyStark
Did they walk in with ten boxes of evidence? Pretty sure that's all on film.

I'm so happy to see this. Alex Jones is perhaps the most morally repugnant figure in public life in my lifetime, bar Trump. I hope the remaining lawsuits utterly destroy the business empire he built on the backs of the murdered children's families he called "crisis actors," and I hope further families victimized by his evil grift to his gullible and violent base who haven't already taken him to court clean out what's left after that.

A jury tags Alex Jones with $45.2 million in punitive damages for 2 Sandy Hook parents-
