Why is this guy talking about Pelosi delaying when McConnell was the one who said he wouldn’t bring the Senate back? Shouldn’t this complaint be addressed to Mitch?
What version of the Constitution is this?! Why does he have his tabs like that? I’m appalled on all fronts! Image
Howard has a better capture. Obviously.
“I know this is a lot of words, but words are what make our Constitution.” - lawyer for Donald J. Trump, David Schoen
He’s running this like it’s me sharing tweets in the newsroom/Slack channel: “Oh, here’s another one, if you’re following such things.” THEY’RE ~JURORS~ IN AN IMPEACHMENT TRIAL! Yes, they’re following. 🙃
The tabs might kill me. TBH.
Else the Puck a liar call;
So, good night unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends.
56-44 vote in favor of the constitutionality of proceeding.

Mike Lee, what are you complaining about?
Nobody knows what they’re voting on or why. Not a good job by Leahy here.
Here’s an article about Lee & Tuberville, but not one that raises the concerns Lee raised: deseret.com/utah/2021/1/7/…

This is all you need to know about the cat attorney. He's all good with the joy he let loose today.
Have your fun, and don't feel bad.

Also: Is this the first time Twitter's character of the day had the pitch perfect response?
Sal talked to him, too! Good on Rod for taking this all in stride. [Insert cat pun here.]

Breaking: A large coalition of civil rights and civil liberties groups call on Biden to commute federal death row immediately. aclu.org/letter/coaliti… Image
The coalition — which includes @civilrightsorg, @ACLU, @amnesty, @NAACP_LDF, @LambdaLegal, @acslaw, @innocence, @verainstitute and more — calls for Biden to dismantle the federal death chamber and stop new capital federal prosecutions as well. Image
Not to be missed on this coalition letter: The former head of the lead org — @vanitaguptaCR had run @civilrightsorg until the past month — is Biden’s nominee for No. 3 at DOJ.

And here’s a related order: supremecourt.gov/orders/courtor…
Here are the actual orders, which are, effectively, the same, aside from procedural posture.

Random fact: A set of twins figures into Virginia’s modern death penalty story: Jerry Kilgore tried, unsuccessfully, to ruin Tim Kaine’s career by fearmongering over the death penalty 16 years ago and now Terry Kilgore cast a losing vote trying to retain the death penalty.
I wrote two big stories relating to Virginia and the death penalty over the past decade, both of which made clear to me how abhorrent, unjust, and unworkable this system is. One was about the execution of Alfredo Prieto in 2015. buzzfeednews.com/article/chrisg…
