Committee Chairman, Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson began the hearings by saying: ‘I am from a part of the country where people justified the actions of slavery, the Ku Klux Klan and lynching.
It would appear that Trump is losing some support of his family, to some extent, bearing in mind Ivanka’s, whereas Jared’s comments just underlines his inability to understand what was going on, which was ‘par’ for the course.
It appears Trump is being cast aside, which will be a great outcome, but a custodial sentence would be much better.

Six years after calling on Putin for aid against Hillary Clinton, Trump is now asking for the murderous dictator’s help finding dirt on Joe Biden.
So Trump is again going ‘cap-in-hand’ to the person he admires, or should it be the person who controls him, for Trump is the ‘|puppet’ and Putin the ‘Puppet Master’.
But currently Trump is no use to Putin, so the ‘cupboard of help’ may well be bare. However, should Putin still be in power he may feel that if Trump could win again that he will have his uses.

Ghislaine Maxwell has been found guilty of sex trafficking charges, and speculation is now mounting that she may ‘flip’ and testify against others in a bid to reduce her sentence.
I so hope she does starting naming names and hope she includes Trump and more incriminating evidence about Prince Andrew.
However, as to a shorter sentence I would only give her a sentence short by one day.

Committee to request contents of the call seeking to stop Biden’s certification and may subpoena Rudy Giuliani
Is this the final end for former President Donald Trump and he will get what he just deserves, well we all hope so, but he slivers around in an area of slime, so we will need to wait and see.

America shuts Kabul airport as Dominic Raab is forced to turn to China and Russia for help in Afghanistan
I rarely agree with anything the former Prime Minister, Tony Blair, ever says, well in effect I never have, until now, when he talks about, Joe Biden’s ‘imbecilic’ retreat from Afghanistan.
For it is imbecilic, as while, military forces would have to be withdrawn eventually, it should not have been until all or most of the persons who wished to leave Afghanistan had already left. For to not do so, will as we have seen, cause panic and chaos leading to deaths and distrust in Western powers.
The decision to withdraw troops was originally from former President Donald Trump that should have been a clue as to how misguided it was, but Biden took what he thought was the easy way out and a vote winner. Well he won the vote in the US Presidential elections last, but could well lose the re-election in 2024, due to his decision to continue with the troop withdrawals.
Or could Biden be a reincarnation of Trump, not a good thought to have, but could be the answer to the obvious lack of thought behind the decision and the misguided continued decision to not see how misguided it was.

Well he has made life miserable for everyone else over his 4 years of being President, so 1 more will not make much different.
What needs to be done is make life miserable for Trump and his family, assuming Republican Senators put everyone first rather than trying to save themselves.

Nothing truer has ever been said, but it appears that Republican Senators care more about saving themselves than saving America.
Yes, they feel if they vote to impeach Trump and find him guilty, they themselves could inflame Republican voters.
If they are so, anti-America and pro-themselves, then they should not be in the Senate, for they are there for the wrong reasons.
For America should come First.
