John Bolton Will Testify If Subpoenaed, So Why Aren't House Dems Doing That? 9.1.2020 Crooks Liars
I was fighting a cold yesterday, so I thought there were physical reasons why I couldn't seem to grasp the importance of this story , which seemed monumental to everyone else: But this morning I read Politico Playbook 's lead item and I realized that my foggy brain yesterday was imagining precisely what's happened in the aftermath of Bolton's announcement: WE WERE ALL ATWITTER Monday when JOHN BOLTON popped up on his political action committee’s webpage to say that he would testify if subpoenaed in a Senate trial. BUT, AT THIS MOMENT, why should we think he’ll testify? SENATE MAJORITY LEADER MITCH MCCONNELL seems to have his entire conference behind the Clinton rules for impeachment, which required 51 votes to subpoena someone for testimony ... and there was very, very little movement ...

Ed Rollins: Trump Doesn't Have To Brief Congress 3.1.2020 Crooks Liars
You may remember Ed Rollins as the political consultant for Michele Bachmann's presidential campaign in 2012 and then abandoned her before the first contest. ( His departing quote was "She's out of money and ideas." What a sweetheart!) Now he's the co-chairman of the pro-Trump Great America PAC, which may be out of ideas but not out of money for Ed Rollins, nosir! And so Rollins earned his keep Friday on Fox Nation, declaring that Donald Trump had no obligation to brief anyone in Congress because of leaks during the impeachment process. "The Congress has given up its opportunity to be briefed in advance over the leaks that have occurred over the last year in the impeachment process that is going on today." Who is he talking about, Devin Nunes? Well, yeah then. But Nunes isn't in the Gang of 8, which Does. Not. Leak. Intel. And Ed Rollins knows that. He's a good propaganda minister though and as I said, earned his paycheck, which is very Ed Rollins of him. PS. The concerned woman arguing for ...

Impeachment Has Been A Messaging Disaster For The White House. Why Won't The Press Say So? 23.12.2019 Crooks Liars
The impeachment of Donald Trump was always going to be a messaging war, and on paper it should have been a rout for Republicans. With his Twitter megaphone reaching more than 60 million followers, Trump should have been able to use his uniquely digital White House bully pulpit to sway the nation's opinion. He should have been able to use his regular mass rallies to convince voters that he did nothing wrong. He should have benefited from the nearly $20 million the Republican Party and aligned super PACs have spent on anti-impeachment television ads over the past two months. (“A rigged process. A sham impeachment. No quid pro quo.") He should have benefited from Fox News, which functions as a blind cabal of cable television loyalists, to effectively spin GOP impeachment talking points. But despite all that mass media firepower, Trump and the White House have utterly failed to move the public opinion needle on impeachment over the past few months, as one-half of the country remains committed to ...
