The Republican party has become authoritarian and antidemocratic. They must be stopped at all costs.

People like Greene like to throw around the holocaust and compare it to mask wearing but the irony is that the party is starting to resemble Nazi Germany.

GOP-led Michigan state Senate committee finds no evidence of widespread fraud in 2020 election
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/michigan-s ... raud-2020/



Following a months-long investigation into a litany of dubious election fraud claims made by former President Donald Trump and his allies, a GOP-controlled Michigan Senate panel concluded Wednesday not only that the state’s 2020 results are accurate, but that some of those who continue to push such claims should face criminal investigation.

I predict we will be hearing more about Senator McBroom in the future.

Former Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani has now been suspended from practicing law in the state of New York
https://www.rawstory.com/rudy-giuliani-2653529319/

Specifically, the Attorney Grievance Committee for New York State Supreme Court's First Judicial Department concluded that Giuliani "communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public at large in his capacity as lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign," which clearly violates the New York Bar's code of conduct for attorneys.

Rudy Giuliani Suspended From Practicing Law in New York
https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/c ... k/3123491/
"We conclude that there is uncontroverted evidence that respondent communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public at large in his capacity as lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign in connection with Trump’s failed effort at reelection in 2020," a New York state appellate court ruled.


New York State Bar Association Launches Historic Inquiry Into Removing Trump Attorney Rudy Giuliani From Its Membership
https://nysba.org/new-york-state-bar-as ... embership/
The New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) strongly condemned the violent uprising that occurred at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, orchestrated by individuals bent on subverting the will of the voters by disrupting the certification of the 2020 presidential election results.

Thankfully, Congress overcame this assault and fulfilled its constitutional responsibility in certifying the Biden-Harris victory. However, we must address the root cause of this abhorrent incident, the blame for which lies first and foremost with President Donald Trump.

But the president did not act alone. Hours before the angry mob stormed the Capitol walls, Trump’s personal attorney, Rudolph Giuliani, addressed a crowd of thousands at the White House, reiterating baseless claims of widespread election fraud in the presidential election and the Georgia U.S. Senate runoffs.
“If we’re wrong, we will be made fools of, but if we’re right a lot of them will go to jail,” Mr. Giuliani said. “Let’s have trial by combat.”

And Now Ukraine Is Trying To Get Rudy Giuliani Disbarred
https://abovethelaw.com/2021/02/and-now ... disbarred/
Igor Novikov, a former adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, told Time. “That is because I believe Mayor Giuliani’s actions in Ukraine threatened our national security. It is our responsibility to make sure that any effort to drag our country into our allies’ domestic politics does not go unpunished.”

Maybe Sen. Hoylman and the NYSBA should add another phase to their investigations, because the Ukrainian government is more than ready to talk about Giuliani’s efforts to conscript it in the 45th President’s smear campaign against Joe Biden during the 2020 election. Check out Zelensky’s face when Axios’ Jonathan Swan asked if he was “a little bit” angry with President Trump.

“A little bit?” he laughed incredulously?

Apparently, a lot. Which is why accounts of Giuliani’s pressure campaign to get the Ukrainians to announce an investigation of Joe Biden and his son Hunter — not just to undertake the investigation, they had to announce it publicly — are now appearing in so many media outlets.

How the mighty have fallen. Remember when he was "America's Mayor"? What a fall from grace for that guy.

Why? Are you going to disbar me if I don't? LOL

BTW, Super, he was "America's Mayor", not Governor.

Notice that he didn't answer the question. Did Biden win fair and square? Yes or no?
