On Feb. 3, I sent a letter to Marco Rubio regarding his impeachment removal vote; I received his reply today. I wondered how he feels about that vote 8 weeks later. So, I wrote to him again.
Last week, prior to the Senate vote, I mailed a letter to Florida’s senior senator, Marco Rubio (R-FL), regarding Trump’s impeachment and removal. I also sent a summary email to him.
I’ve received no response.
It’s Girl Scout Cookie season again.
This would be a good time for these girls not only to make money, but also learn something about the country they’re growing up in.
During the national anthem at his own Super Bowl watch party Sunday night, Trump raises both of his hands in the air, and twirls them around as if conducting the music.
In a stunning argument, Alan Dershowitz, the once-revered Harvard Constitutional law professor and current hack TV lawyer/Trump (I) apologist, said that that any action taken by the president to help his own re-election is, by definition, in the public interest.

Around the Block is the place to go to get the most in-depth coverage of the Hunter Biden impeachment trial.
Wait, what? Whose impeachment trial?
Today, my treasured desk clock reached it’s final lap.
And, if Mitch McConnell and his GOP “ToTs” (Toadies of Trump) would actually honor their oath, it should be a quicker final lap!
After watching two days of Lev Parnas’ stunning Ukraine scandal revelations, a good friend asked me, “But do any influential Republicans care about truth and upholding their vows???”

Read on to see the parallels.
It’s clear that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s strategy to negotiate with the Senate to establish the rules for the impeachment trial before she releases the House Articles of Impeachment is not going to work. Majority leader Mitch McConnell has the 51 votes to block any pre-trial guidelines, including calling witnesses and introducing documents (AKA “evidence”) that were blocked during the House hearings.
