Once a Mobster - Always a Mobster?

Thom plus logo Politico is reporting that Donald Trump is raising millions of dollars for individual Republican senators who have signed a resolution opposing his impeachment. Signing that resolution is, essentially, a statement that these men and women who will be "jurors" in the trial of Trump in the Senate have already made up their mind about how they will they will vote in the jury box. If a criminal defendant were to be shoveling money toward jurors before his trial, he would be in prison in a New York minute. But Donald Trump has no shame, and is openly bribing the jurors in his upcoming trial. Once a mobster, always a mobster.

Average polling to date -- even before public hearings -- indicates that nearly half the nation wants Trump impeached and removed from office.

After a month or so of public hearings, the number of disgusted citizens is likely to rise, at least until it hits the upper limit blocked by an intransigent one-third, who are gaslighted into chanting nonsense by the proponents of impossible deep-state conspiracy theories taken as right-wing religion. Politically, those lost souls are beyond redemption.

The further demise of our once-great democracy will be on full display for the world to witness as a corrupt, cowardly cabal of Republican senators, who over-represent their gullible minority, once again defy the Constitution and the powerless masses and prostrate themselves before their almighty masters, the wealthy few.

Now, imagine Trump's second term...
