While the word "rampant" is doing a lot of heavy lifting there, it's clear Bernie's initial response to the staffer allegations a few months back was wholly dissatisfying. It was very much in his usual "everything else is a distraction from the mission" way. So yah there are old-dog-new-tricks concerns. He did address the issue more thoughtfully here last week, with commitment to concrete measures, and I hope people hold his feet to the fire.


As far as Biden goes, yah, there's something wrong with his brain.

Hey, Joe Biden is only one year younger than Bernie, and age is never brought up with him! And sure, Kamala Harris is much younger, but you have to add to her age all the time she gleefully and mercilessly imprisoned people for marijuana-related crimes, for power and profit. It's like what the skeksis did to podlings in the The Dark Crystal.

Yeah, frenzy frenzy frenzy but his credibility is crap. I expect nothing but the usual headlines from the usual sources. He's not going to shift anything.

But he's going to say bad things about Trump and then Trump will tweet mean things about Congress. And then a Congress person will act disappointed and/or outraged in a very rehearsed way.

If there's corroborating evidence though...I guess we'll see.

A lot of the Cohen opening statement / evidence to be presented is out in written form. Buzzfeed somewhat vindicated.

The coverup check is there.


Today's gonna be a circus for sure, no matter what.

Fave comment so far:

Cohen to GOP lawmakers: "I did the same thing that you're doing now. For ten years. I protected Mr. Trump for ten years." His warning to them: "The more people that follow Mr. Trump -- as I did blindly -- are going to suffer the same consequences that I'm suffering."

Who is this Higgins guy?

Higgins: WHERE ARE THE BOXES MICHAEL!?! WHY HAVEN'T THEY BEEN TURNED OVER?!?!
Cohen: The FBI raided my office so they have...
Higgins: NEVERMIND!

Like this guy is a chucklehead right? I'm not reading this wrong, right?

You know, I should take this attitude in my work "hey this guy said he didn't commit the crime we should just let him go, right?"
