The Grim Reaper coming now for Trump
"The voters, the courts, and the states have all spoken. They've all spoken. If we overrule them, it would damage our Republic forever."
McConnell: "The election actually was not unusually close. Just in recent history, 1976, 2000, and 2004 were all closer than this one. The electoral college margin is almost identical to what it was in 2016."
McConnell: "If this election were overturned by mere allegations from the losing side, our democracy would enter a death spiral. We'd never see the whole nation accept an election again. Every four years would be a scramble for power at any cost."
McConnell: "I believe protecting our constitutional order requires respecting the limits of our own power. It would b unfair and wrong to disenfranchise american voters and overrule the courts and the states on this extraordinarily thin basis."
McConnell: "I will not pretend such a vote would be a harmless protest gesture while relying on others to do the right thing. I will vote to respect the peoples decision and defend our system of government as we know it."
Schumer: "You all know that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are going to be sworn in as President and Vice President of the United States on January 20th."
Schumer: "But they are going to object to the counting of the vote anyway and in the process they will embarrass themselves they will embarrass their party and worst of all they will embarrass their country."
Schumer: "This insurrection was fortunately discouraged by the leadership of the majority party. But it was not quelled. It is a very sad comment on our times that merely accepting the results of an election is considered an act of political courage."
Schumer: "Sadder and more dangerous still is the fact that an element of the Republican Party believes their political viability hinges on the endorsement of an attempted coup."
Cruz: something something half the country thinks a fraud happened [N.B. because we ginned up for our own political benefit the idea that it happened] something something let's stand up for integrity of this body [N.B. even though all of my colleagues know I have none.]
Here's the Grim Reaper grim reaping
Lankford, an objector: "The constitutional crisis in our country right now is that millions of Americans are being told to sit down and shut up."

No, the constitutional crisis is that your ilk has been knowingly lying to those millions of Americans for your power preservation.

Yeah, but it’s been a constant presence there one way or another since, say, 1877
This , for instance, only just came down
And down in the crypt the President of the Confederacy still stands

Trump on his SCOTUS noms: "They rule against me so much. You know why? Because the story is I haven't spoken to any of them since virtually they got in. But the story is they're my puppet...they hate that it's not good on the social circuit..."
I worry there’s some misinterpretation of the trimmed-for-clarity-and-280-characters quote I tweeted above. So here’s the full one...

This move also opens up a DC Circuit seat to elevate Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson so to better position her for Breyer’s seat
I also wouldn’t be surprised if Biden nominates SCOCA Justice Leondra Kruger for SG to better position her for Breyer’s seat, too. It’s what Obama did with Elena Kagan and LBJ with Thurgood Marshall.
KBJ and Kruger have been the clear frontrunners for Biden's big campaign promise

McConnell’s gonna rain hell down on Trump now, and by that I mean when a reporter asks him “did Trump lose your Senate majority?” He’ll mumble, “Yes, I think that’s right,” and then everyone but Cruz, Hawley, and Tommy Tuberville will get in line and pretend Trump never happened.

Gonna be wild when the Oracle's eyebeams turn his hopes at retaining the presidency into that scorched dude in the suit of armor Atreyu has to step over
Of course, Alito could just put this PA thing out of its misery by himself at this point, with the other Circuit Justices acting alone to put out the other fires coming up from the federal cases in the other states.

Oh hey just a reminder that somehow after four years none of the three major Emoluments Clause lawsuits have yet to reach SCOTUS
Here’s the latest state of play as of August
My thoughts as these suits were being conceived days before Trump’s inauguration
