All the abortion ban coverage made a hell of a lot of people single issue voters - many of which were younger.

It's interesting how they've lost the House, but the Dems are now in a position to pass legislation that previously passed that House that was failing in the Senate.

That was pretty much the call tho, but since the Dems still have the Senate, who has more power? I'm guessing its the House given that they will probably try and impeach Biden.

It's going to be interesting to see how the GOP positions itself. I think the extremes that have come along with Trump are falling from favour.

Record inflation. Record gas prices. Record living cost increases.

First order of business: Hunter's laptop.

The US Government is not a single person who can only do one thing at once.

It's the Oversight Committee - that's what their role is - to make sure that if things are rotten, they have the ability to know that this is the case, rather than having requests and questions ignored and laws around Suspicious Activity Reports conveniently changed.

Surely Joe Biden is the one to be fixing the problems in the country, while others who are not the President can do things in parallel in the background. That's why there are multiple branches of government. And if you watched the video, you'd know they're not investigating Hunter Biden - they're investigating Joe being potentially compromised and the potential politicization of the DoJ. Stories based on fact were labelled "Russian disinformation" with signed statements from multiple "intelligence officials" saying this was the case and apparently censored the story by telling social media 15 days before the Presidential election to do this. If anything needs oversight, it's this sort of bollocks.

If your leader is corrupt/compromised, you can't just ignore it because he's running the country into the ground at a record pace. When you consider the bullshit Trump had to put up with and all the smear campaigns against him (that many people still believe to some extent), Joe's had a pretty easy run. It's about time shit got real.

The House Committee on Oversight and Reform has the power to investigate things so deeply that it essentially has the power to halt government. Which is exactly what the Republican majority will use it for.

Special counsel to investigate classified documents found in Biden's 'personal library'

Quote:
Regardless of the Justice Department review, the revelation that Biden potentially mishandled classified or presidential records is proving to be a political headache for Biden, who said former President Donald Trump was “irresponsible” for keeping hundreds of such records at his private club in Florida.

Let he who is without mishandled classified documents cast the first stone.

It is a bit of egg on the face at a shallow clickbait headline level.

But if you think the two situations are at all comparable then you are showing some serious deficits.

But I grind at even writing this, because you already know this at some level.
So sticking with BUT HILLARY is more accurate.

Pretty cheap score, nice timing tho for the GOP. Ugh, seeing McCarthy use the leverage to cheer for Trump is super-cringe tho.

"Biden’s classified documents scandal — growing worse by the hour — is now directly tied to Hunter Biden and his infamous laptop."

The classified documents were found at... Hunter Biden's house. Or more specifically, a house that Hunter Biden claimed to own and live at (the address on his license). If for the sake of semantics you say it's not really Hunter's house because he was actually overseas fucking hookers and doing drugs with money he was getting from corrupt dealings on behalf of his father, then fine, I accept your point.

If Trump was illegally holding classified documents, he should be help responsible and be punished.

It's DC. Everything is leverage, and kompromat is currency. I'm certain it's been known for long enough, and only got out because someone wasn't bending.

@CB exactly.
The only reason it's even newsworthy is because of the Trump situation which made it noteworthy due to the egregiousness.
I bet it's been done by every bloody president and vice for decades.

Whoever has done it should be held accountable according to the proportionality of the offence, intent, and willingness to comply.

I mean. Reality shouldn't really need to be explained.
But it's 2023 and MAGA exists. Go figure.

But one of these people are an infallible God-King. So... what to do? Screeching seems popular.

I know that charging your kids rent/board while they're at home teaches them valuable life lessons, but charging them $49,910 a month seems a bit much. I'm going to assume it includes meals and laundering.

Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama say they have no classified documents

This whole mess is because Trump breached protocol and refused to return documents it was identified he had.

Aww, bless. Jimmy's a real one.
