More Than 550 Congressional Staffers call on Senate to Convict Trump
… from MSNBC
[ Editor’s Note: Hurrah for the Congressional staffers. After 300 initially signing on to asking for Trump to be convicted for what he had subjected them to, another 200 ‘late comers’ signed on during the trial.
No figures were give on the breakdown of their political office jobs, but that said, I would suspect they might align with how their bosses voted.
It was nice to see them get some attention as their behinds were on the line when the Trump scum invaded. They have the rare distinction of knowing what it is like to be targeted using violence by a President willing to do just about anything to stay in power.
The Banana Republicans will now also be stained with not giving a crap about their staff, a chip off the old Trump block; “Hey, what’s the big deal, it’s not my ass out on a limb so why should I give a crap”.
Notice how we are hearing today about Republican state parties censuring those that voted to convict Trump, but so far there is zero media about how their state news media is covering the story, and state Democrat party response… Jim W. Dean ]
