The fact that they got in is horrifying and all that. But what I really wanna know is how they got out.

The same way: walking past a bunch of complicit Capitol police officers, who even helped them flush tear gas from their eyes and walked them down the steps.

I suspect PA will not impeach and remove, or whatever the equivalent there is. So arrest and prosecute. Let him try to hold office from federal prison.

I make the odds 50/50 between

  1. He just eats the food (and already is), and
  2. They send an officer to Whole Foods to shop for him

Not sure if this has been covered elsewhere but one more potential casualty from the Republicans’ actions last week is 75-year-old Democratic Congresswoman Watson Coleman, who believes she was exposed to Covid-19 while being forced to shelter from the mob with Republican colleagues who refuse to wear masks or take other basic precautions against spreading the virus.

Very tangential, if only because this is a White House stooge resigning, but not because of the coup attempt:

And of course, not actually resigning, because you can’t resign a post you never legally occupied.

Shit I’m going to resign as head of the DHS. Will Reuters interview me?

Points for honesty? I’m guessing the defense strategy is going to be “plead guilty and grovel and beg for mercy.”

I love that the part he really hemmed over was whether it was called a lectern or a podium. :joy:

He’s definitely concerned about how the BBS is going to take his remarks.
