  2. They’ll strain to spin complex tinfoil webs of impropriety concerning their opponents. But when it concerns them, they become the densest, most deliberately obtuse people imaginable.

  3. “Castor refused even to concede that Trump had asked Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the Bidens. For the record, here is the portion of the phone call between Trump and Zelensky in which Trump requested an investigation of the Bidens:

    “The other thing, 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.”

    The Democratic lawyer displayed this passage and asked Castor, “President Trump was asking Ukrainian president Zelensky to have the Ukrainian officials ‘look into’ the Bidens, correct?”
    “I don’t think the record supports that … I think it’s ambiguous,” Castor insisted.”

    “Biden went around bragging…so if you can look into it”

    Where the fuck is the ambiguity?

    > "Would you agree that Joe Biden was a leading contender to face President Trump in 2020?," asked the Democratic lawyer.

    > Since the murderous cult leader, who died in 2017, was convicted of California state criminal charges, Trump couldn't issue him a pardon even if he wanted to.

  5. I’m sure that he is just following that tried and true legal tradition dating back to the origins of the GOP:
