Pure hypothetical

Dennison up to his eyeballs. Deeper than Nixon ever got.

Sooo...again...purely hypothetical but if he were of a mind to toss in the sponge and resign..

How much would it save the taxpayers?

How many GOP Senate seats that become more and more vulnerable as the creek continues to rise and they’d have to decide eventually might it save?

Does the reactionary movement indeed foment acts of extreme civil disorder and violence, either organized or spontaneously, in the wake of it?

Of course if that were to happen

More “made up” crap like this gets dumped on the next guy:

God only knows what might get dug up if it came down to the 3rd in the line of succession.

Come to think, a double resignation might do more to inspire badly needed GOP turnout for Kasich or Haley than anything the RNC could ever cook up.

Re: Of course if that were to happen

I love hypothetical questions...

Here's one:   Would the receiving party to a quid pro quo situation have to be aware that something of value was being given or withheld for quid pro quo to have actually occured?

Re: Of course if that were to happen

Did Rudy come up with a new angle. He’s good for one every few days or so. 

Quid pro quo is an abstract term with no statutory value. More a common descriptor than anything else. What’s in play in this matter is The Constitution and The Law.  

That being, I can see how Dennison and a royal toady like Meadows would want to keep it to the former.

Meadows, of course

Is one of these guys:

Yo! Craig, BA. Any other Iowa GOPers...How’s Joni holding up under all of this?  She almost appears to be hiding out.

Re: Meadows, of course

Just why is no one hanging Biden for a actual crime?

Re: Meadows, of course

And that crime would be?  We’re there  or had there been one, it would have been commited where?

To have been investigated, and potentially indicted and prosecuted for it, by whom? In what Jurisdiction?

It is a Latin term meaning "something for something"" which is used as a description in law to define some illegal actions such as extortion in this particular case and in particular the Hobbs Act.

Your run around again with "angle" is funny.  Extortion as is exemplified by quid pro quo requires that something of value is exchanged.  

Your deflection is confirmation that you know nothing of value was exchanged.

Thank you for that admission. 😉

You really are scraping the bottom of the barrel these days Brucie...  

There's video evidence and you want to pretend it doesn't exist or that because a corrupt obama administration didn't police their own that it didn't happen...  Oh but it did, and you lose credibility every day you make these really dumb remarks that are so easily observed as lies.  

You should have just walked away....
