“dans des limites qui soient raisonnables et dont la justification puisse se démontrer dans le cadre d’une société libre et démocratique.” makes all the difference.
And still desperate to fellate his guy:
Lindsey Graham, reacting to democratic plans to call witnesses, has “threatened” to call FBI witnesses who would presumably discount Trump’s responsibility by pointing to a preexisting plan by the proud boys et al.
isn’t he worried about opening a can of worms? Or does his cunning plan revolve around the technicality of arguing that Trump’s role was different enough from what was described in the impeachment papers to thwart a conviction?
my client couldn’t have killed Mr A,because he was off killing Mr B at the time!
Now we’re talking Presidential Medal of Freedom material.
add to that their stated justification for violence is:
“Democracy is dead? Well, then no peace for you. No democracy, no peace,” Nordean said, according to charging papers.
combine “stand back and standby” with trump’s drumbeat of fraud and their stated reason and you close the circle.
but whether or not he planned the violence, he encouraged it before and during the attack – and he blessed it afterwards. so…
also known as the “i’m competently incompetent and you can’t trust me to know a single thing about what’s going on in the country” defense.
Well, the weather’s really bad, so what is he supposed to do?
Not one House Republican. Every one of them is scared of her.

Update: see below
The only thing they’re afraid of is losing their own personal grip on power, which crossing Greene’s supporters would jeopardize. They either actually agree with her, or know they need to appear to do so in order to keep their own seat. They’ve rotted their party from the inside out and this is the consequence.
There’s been a lot of “off the record” whining from Republicans suddenly receiving the kind of death threats Democrats get every day, so don’t discount simple cowardice.
But either way, she owns them.
Speaking of death threats, The Onion is once again out of fucks…

We don’t need any, but I will go out of my way to buy their pillows.
