During one of the breaks in Wednesday's deposition
James Comer said
"So this impeachment inquiry will now go to the next phase which will be a public hearing,"
And then announced that Hunter Biden will be a witness
No date yet
But based upon how well prepped Hunter was Wed
It should be fascinating!

Seeing the crowds in Moscow for Alexei Navalny's funeral today are incredible
Many thousands of people filling the streets
Every one of them are risking arrest
And yet still they show up
Amazing!

Yesterday MAGA House Homeland Security Chair Mark Green announced that he's reversed his decision to retire
He said: "Constituents & Trump urged me to reconsider"
So.. Trump pressure worked
He's now the 3rd House GOP Rep to do so
Matt Rosendale & Victoria Spartz have also changed their minds ..

Seeing that Trump's planning to sit in front of Aileen Cannon today as she makes a decision about his trial date
Unfortunately I think his intimidation tactic will work with her
If she gives him the August 12 trial date he's requested
His coup trial won't happen before the election
And he wins again

Yesterday the House passed a short term CR 320-99 with many MAGA Reps voting against it
It will fund the gov't thru March 22
Senate then passed it
It now heads to Biden's desk to be signed today
And we will do this all over again in just 3 weeks
Because the MAGA GOP cannot even balance a budget

It appears to be complete
Tho some stuff is redacted (of course)
Still, it contains a few real gems

"For those who think the S Ct wants to split the baby: a win for Trump in CO case, and against in immunity, that is wrong IMHO. By staying the DC case, the S Ct has given Trump the win already (he only cares about not being tried before the election)."

Maddow on SCOTUS decision to hear Trump's immunity claim:
"to say that this is something that the Court needs to decide because it's something that's unclear in the law is just flagrant, flagrant bull-pucky."
And there-in lies the rub
The Constitution is clear
So what're they doing?

March is going to be a rough month
The House needs to pass 6 approps bills next week to avert a shutdown on 3/8
The next 6 (more difficult) by 3/22
Passage will be under suspension of the rules
Which means a 2/3 vote
And a lot of Dem support
So MAGA spending cuts will be tanked
Mona Burns @MonaBurns
The House will vote today on a short-term CR that averts a shutdown by extending six bills until March 8
The remaining 6 bills will be pushed to March 22
Senate expected to pass this by unanimous consent tonight
Make no mistake:
Nothing is carved in stone
And this is Johnson punting again ..

Word this morning that Mike Johnson is expected to swear NY-03 Dem House Rep-elect Tom Suozzi in at 7pm tonight
Making the House split 219-213
Which means Johnson can lose no more than two GOP votes on a party-line question
IF all members are present/voting

This is amazing 👇
For a normal Speaker it would be very serious pressure
But Mike Johnson will very likely ignore it
At best he'll give it lip service
(he's gotten good at that)
And he'll definitely just keep squirming under Trump's thumb

This is Mike Johnson at the 'Big 4' White House meeting yesterday

He does not look confident
He looks cowed and unsure

This is your Speaker of the House of Representatives, kids

Giving MAGA -even a 2 seat- House majority has brought this upon us
Elections have consequences

Stop. Electing. Republicans.

Reminder:

Despite Mike Johnson's refusal to seat Dem House Rep-elect Tom Suozzi previously because of the thin GOP majority
Suozzi is expected to be sworn in tonight at the Capitol

Watch this carefully
Johnson does NOT have the legal right to refuse to seat a duly elected member

House is back in session tonight
There are no votes (that I'm aware of) on the books for today
House GOP Conference has a meeting tomorrow morning
They definitely don't appear to be ready to put any of this 👇to a vote
Mona Burns @MonaBurns
So it's complicated
but another short-term CR is in the works
Would push the deadline for 3/8 bills to March 22
But Johnson wants Dem agreement on the 4 bills due Fri, plus Interior, FinSvcs & Gen'l Gov't measures
-by Friday
IOW it will not be a 'clean' CR this time 👇
