    You and some right fringe media say one thing; the ICIG, the congress, and the MSM say something else.

    I'd hedge that bet if'n I were you.

    There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the
    prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so
    whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great.
    Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if
    you can look into it ... It sounds horrible to me.

    So, if Ox asks me not to respond to his posts, I am wrong to declare "I can post anywhere I want". I failed to consider that could be seen as an abuse of mod powers, and was only thinking in terms of "freedom of speech".

    Damn, that looks sincere.

    Board software recognizes there are times when posters get into a space where the best idea for the entire board is to allow them to disengage entirely, so they built in an "ignore" utility. Because moderation can't work if moderation posts are ignored, staff are excluded, creating less than optimal opportunities for disengagement.

    The first board I ever posted, the infamous IH, had no moderation at all.

    That's what makes this so insane - the Senate is talking full trial. Schiff, the gossip (what whistle blower), Joe Biden and Hunter Biden will all be called to testify.

    With very good reason. The very first time I was made aware of it, I admitted I was wrong.

    1) Does matter.
    2) No, he isn't.

    It's like Schiff just didn't think this through -- he was SO SURE it was gonna be a slam dunk that the whole world would be swayed by him, and that the Republicans in the House would have no choice but to capitulate.

    He kinds reminds me of the guy (when I was in High School) who always talked about leading a charge across the field at our "hometown rival" football game, and finally a bunch of guys decided to go along.

    At the assigned time, just as halftime started, he went screaming across the field to the other side, yelling obscenities all the way, waving "the finger", only to discover midfield that nobody was following. Oooooops.

    Well, that's fine, you can assume all you want, but you still don't know.


    It would be nearly impossible for Schiff not to know, and if he knows, he's lying when he says he does not.
    It's a moot point anyway, it's irrelevant. Whistleblowers are protected by law, their identities are not to be revealed, so you should stop falling for the right wing talking points.


    Like I said - he's a Democrat, so, yeah, he gets a pass for lying.
    No, it gets hand waved away because whistleblowers are protected, by law, for a very good reason, and their identity, or whether or not Schiff knows the identity, is irrelevant.
