Paging Former VP Pious McKissAss!
Prosecutors in the #Georgia election subversion case against #Trump have officially listed former Vice President Mike #Pence as one of the witnesses who could be called to testify at trial, according to multiple sources familiar with court documents that remain under seal. #legal #TrumpIndictment
Via Kyle Cheney:
You don't have to be a fan of #FaniWillis' investigation to find it bizarre that the entire basis of this "coordination" claim is that Willis made a routine request to #Jan6 committee to see their records (& we don't even know if the committee responded).

NY Magazine's Eric Levitz:
Imo, it's true that many voters aren't content with slowing #inflation; they want all prices to fall (which would require a depression).
This said, we have actually seen straight up deflation for many high-salience items. The 34% drop in the cost of health insurance seems especially under-discussed.
Real shame. 🎻 Rudy Giuliani joins your self-inflicted club.
“Far-right attorney John #Eastman, one of #Trump's co-defendants in the Georgia election racketeering case, told conservative publication The Federalist his legal expenses in the case have left him in a dire financial situation.”- Raw Story https://www.rawstory.com/john-eastman-fulton-county-mugshot/
Apparently a very popular former president is somehow still in charge. Who knew?
Via Brian Stelter:
This "Obama is really running things" conspiracy theory presses many of the far right's buttons simultaneously, which is why Trump keeps repeating it, a la birtherism
Via historian Joshua Zeitz:
This guy represents CA in Congress — one of 9 current states whose territory the US won in part or whole during the Mexican War of 1848. Then there is the Spanish American War that saw the US take Guam, Puerto Rico and the Philippines. Otherwise solid history.
Think for one moment. In every single war that America has fought, we have never asked for land afterward—except for enough to bury the Americans who gave the ultimate sacrifice for freedom

@GottaLaff Another shooting. Burlington VT. They had to spoil the fun we were having with your career shares!
My dear, brilliant friend Wiley Miller gifted us with an amazing comic today.
THREAD 🧵 1/...
6 composite photos of Dick Van Dyke (& me, my class) in black box theater of public perform. arts high school where I taught/directed Comedy class/shows. Dick wanted to see us in action, loved it, asked me to write/direct his annual theater prod. to "make it funnier."
I couldn't believe Dick Van Dyke asked ME to make HIM funnier. Did it for 2 yrs, finally had to quit due to time conflicts.
He visited us, played w/ us, had a ball! I'm the redhead in blue jeans. Here we go!
Trump responded by making false claims again.
JUST IN: #Trump lawyers file response to Thanksgiving Day prosecution filing at DC Circuit, argue threats Trump may have triggered against NY state judge or his clerk are 'irrelevant' to need for #GagOrder in DC federal case. #legal #TrumpIndictment https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/24174871-trumpsupprpycadc112423
A small group of protesters (anti-Israel) (maybe 30-50?) just very loudly marched up our very quiet street blasting horns and carrying signs accusing my Dem. Rep. of supporting genocide (she doesn't). She lives 3 houses up from us, and now they're standing outside her house making a racket.
Hammy's barking up a storm, and I'm getting a headache.
Debate on #Twitter about Twitter:
Q: is it time to call it quits at X/Tw? ..some valid reason not to- assuming you're a sane, fact-based person who blvs in rule of law, dignity, equality of all ppl?
Angry Staffer reply:
Not yet. If we leave, this place becomes even more of a cesspool of disinfo.
I think it’s also impt that we stay in order to do everythg we can to spread word about how dangerous a 2nd Trump term would be
You know better than most the lengths he’ll go to.
