Impeachment 2.0, Day 3

UPDATE: Rep. Joe Neguse once again brings it home:

Congresswoman Diana DeGette (D-Denver) is making her first appearance today as one of the House impeachment managers.

The New York Times has more on what to expect in today’s (likely) final remarks from House impeachment managers prosecuting the case against former President Trump:

A day after delivering the Senate a harrowing account of the deadly violence, replete with chilling new video footage, the impeachment managers planned to pivot on the trial’s third day to argue why Mr. Trump must be the first impeached president ever convicted, and the first ex-president disqualified from holding future office.

Their task is a daunting one, aimed at persuading Republican senators who have shown no appetite for breaking with Mr. Trump, and building a historical record of his role in the worst attack on the Capitol since the War of 1812. Led by Representative Jamie Raskin of Maryland, they planned to assert that Mr. Trump’s actions badly damaged the nation’s standing around the world and warn that if left unpunished, the former president would be free to return to power and endanger democracy.

    DeGette making Colorado proud instead of the usual "meh that's nice."

  2. So proud that Joe Neguse stole the show!  Now my friends from LA can stop calling me and asking what kind of crazy people elected Boebert. Whew!  Thank you, political Gods, for smiling on us and giving redemption in the form of a talented Black man!

    Now can you work on Hickenlooper, he is still an embarrassment.
