What a wicked web we weave, when first we practice to deceive. Night 2 of the Republican National Convention was an experience in gaslighting, irony and hypocrisy which will not soon — if ever — be duplicated and I pray I never see it exceeded. Pam Bondi, formerly attorney general of Florida, took to the […]
Joseph Bondy, attorney for Lev Parnas, knows how to troll on social media. That’s a good thing, since we have the Cruel Clown of social media to contend with, Donald Trump. It’s nice to know somebody can fight fire with fire. Join Lev Parnas and the legal team tomorrow at 11:15 am, as we walk from Union Station to the Capitol, to watch the trial and speak out for witnesses and evidence. #TrialsHaveWitnesses #AmericansWantWitnesses #LetLevSpeak #LetBoltonTestify #LevRemembers https://t.co/aarsX7Mil7 — Joseph A. Bondy (@josephabondy) January 29, 2020 Daily Beast: Lev Parnas’ attorney Joseph Bondy is set to attend the Senate impeachment trial tomorrow during the first day of the question-answer period. His co-counsel Stephanie Schuman is also expected to appear, The Daily Beast has learned. “Like many other New York constituents, Mr. Bondy reached out and asked for gallery tickets, and we said yes,” said Justin Goodman, a spokesperson for Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), the Senate Minority Leader. Bondy told The Daily Beast Tuesday that his client was also trying to attend tomorrow’s proceedings in the Senate trial but would be unlikely to be able to enter the chamber because he wears an ankle monitor. Senate rules bar individuals from bringing any electronics into the chamber during the trial. Tuesday evening, U.S. District Judge J. Paul Oetken indeed modified Parnas’ pretrial release to allow him to travel to Washington, but denied the removal of his monitor. Here’s a shot of Trump defense attorney Pam Bondi, whose sanctimonious defense of Trump seems a bit much, considering.

Bondy (@josephabondy) January 28, 2020 We’re sure in a different space than we were on Friday, when Adam Schiff was tweaking the delicate sensibilities of Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins by quoting the “head on a pike” line. They were so alienated then, but the John Bolton manuscript seems to have a quieting effect on their outraged sensibilities. Wednesday should be interesting. And by the by, a new trending hashtag on Twitter is #MittOrGetOffThePot.
A quick FYI for all of the witty and intelligent people who occupy my comments section. Since I went to the new laptop, for some reason I am unable to either vote or reply to comments, I can’t even create a new comment of my own. Teri is off tomorrow, so we’ll try to fix it then, but know that I am reading every comment. And now on to da good stuff. It is becoming more and more clear that the Democrats are going to fill almost all, if not all of their 24 hours of presentation time. And they’re going to blow the doors off doing it. I love the tactic of having each case manager assigned to one particular aspect of Trump’s crimes, allowing each to be wonderfully knowledgeable about the subject, and to scrape off every last crumb of relevant evidence to present for the record. I’m also thrilled that they continue to use the video props, because it’s so damn effective. Teri is sitting there playing her game, and yet every time the screen changes to show a slide of video clip, the change in pattern on the screen makes her lift her head up to look, and her ears are tuned in again. I just wish that the managers would make a few more references to King Donald, and the Imperial Presidency. But all good things must come to an end, and sometime between 9-10 tomorrow night EST, the Democrats presentation will come to an end. And if the current schedule holds, at 12 PM on Saturday, the White House lawyers will get their turn in the barrel. And that’s when the trouble is going to start, for us viewers, for the GOP caucus of the US Senate, and for Trump and McConnell. Because 24 hours is what they have to fill. After all, Trump is allegedly paying for this defense at some point or other, and if the Democrats are going to spend 24 hours pounding His Lowness like milk fed veal cutlets, Trump is going to want every second of his 24 hours. And his defense team is going to have to give it to him. And that’s where the trouble starts. The Democrats sent over more than 100 pages of filings, outlining the case and evidence they planned to introduce, Trump’s lawyers sent over six. So, how do they fill time? Well, I suppose you can have Pat Canelloni stand around and call the Democratic case managers nasty names. And you can have Jay Suckulow rant and rave lies about the constitutionality of the subpoenas, and claim the President is so perfect that he was borne down to earth by golden swans, with trumpets blaring. And Pam Bondi can stand around trying to explain why her campaign took that illegal donation from the Trump foundation. And that skinny beanpole who can’t even order a beer yet can stand around and recite paragraphs he memorized from a borrowed law book. But come on, how long can that take, even if it does have the faithful spilling their brewskis in merriment? So how do they fill up all of that extra time? I think I might know, and the though terrifies me. How about a 3 Stooges marathon? And when I say the 3 Stooges, I don’t […]
