People believe the lie because it makes them feel good.

These people don't use religion as a guide to a better life, they use it as an excuse for bad behavior.
Yup. Evil people will use their evil religions as an excuse to be evil. The "pro-life" movement is generally speaking a very dishonest movement. They are really anti choice. Even the name "pro life" is a dishonest. If they supposedly were protecting life they'd be helping people get healthcare, preventing gun violence, helping immigrants, and would never support war. Instead they want to pretend that getting an abortion is taking a life. Something that no medial profession, law, or legal system says is true. So when the racist liar gets on stage and feeds them lies they want to hear they go along with it.

There should be an effort to brand Trump as the face of the pro life movement. It's a fitting match up.

Religion is Pro-Afterlife.

Basically try to interpret some old texts doing whatever they think it takes to get to the next world, even if it means making this world unnecessarily miserable in the process.

Holy s***, Sasse is going nuclear!
I'm not watching but I just saw some of what he's saying on emptywheel's summary. He's now my favorite senator who is exactly two years older than me (unless there's another, in which case I reserve the right to change my mind).

It'll be on Youtube. He specifically pointed to manafort being bought by Russia and how he worked for trump and how is that possibly legal and how can it be prevented in the future.

Coons, FINALLY, is saying like it is. More people need to do that. While it may not be prosecutable, I don't agree, but it is disgusting what the trump campaign and family did.

I'm live now. Missed hirono, unforutnately, caught the tail end of Blackburn (which is, of course, a fetid blowjob).

On first question... what a lying f***ing a****** he is.
Yeah, he is. The next R went on about leaks and FISA and nonsense, and I saw Ted Cruz up next, so I'm back listening to Hirono now and will rejoin after.

Back just in time for Leahy to point out there was an underlying crime - referencing Individual-1 being part of a criminal scheme in the hush money payment.

lindsay graham said he will not ask Mueller to testify nor Don McGahn.
Of course he won't. "It's over." I mean, when the DOJ declines to prosecute, there's nothing to see and... hold my beer...

The frustrating part of this (well, one of them) is that at this point, two things are patently obvious:
1. Trump has done things that should get him impeached at minimum and ejected from office in any sane democracy
2. Trump's current legal and electoral strategy seems to be trying to force impeachment in the hopes that it'll rally his base even more than those fine people have already been rallied.

I kind of hope the Democratic strategy now becomes subpoena and then impeach anyone who resists the subpoena, because fighting subpoenas in court takes forever (I think Holder is still fighting subpoenas over the Fast and Furious case).
