QOTD -- The Tell
"One thing they’re inadvertently confirming here, with this extended rant against the Bidens—Trump’s entire concern with “corruption” in Ukraine was about the Bidens. But we’re supposed to believe this has absolutely nothing to do with 2020 and Trump didn’t blackmail Zelensky over it at all." -- Joan McCarter, liveblogging the Republican presentation at the impeachment trial this afternoon, which has been heavy on "look over there -- the Bidens!" , and a reliance on debunked Russian propaganda. The sheer incompetence of this as a strategy suggests it was demanded by the Very Stable Genius himself.
Shockingly, a name they didn't bring up: John Bolton.
