Forcing Trump off Twitter may have some benefits but it was first and foremost a gift to congressional republicans, whatever the intentions
occasionally I am reminded of old Trump tweets and am just gobsmacked that they are real

Donald Trump Jr is asked on Newsmax to respond to a report about officials seeing something alarming on a Mar-a-Lago security camera ahead of the search. He goes on an unhinged rant about the FBI.

“[S]ince the search all [Trump has] been able to come up with in his own defense is weak whataboutism, baseless claims about the feds planting evidence, and transparent falsehoods.” @atrupar aaronrupar.substack.com/p/tr…

every time I see an Angels highlight it's like "Mike Trout hit three homes runs and raised his average to .528 while Shohei Ohtani did something that hasn't been done since 'Tungsten Arm' O'Doyle of the 1921 Akron Groomsmen, as the Tigers defeated the Angels 8-3"

By paying lip service to calling for calm while actually telling his supporters they're right to be violently angry, Trump's threats in response to the Mar-a-Lago search are eerily similar to what he said on January 6 aaronrupar.substack.com/p/tr…

The problem is that this doesn't match the timeline. Russia started a buildup near Ukraine with units from Siberia in Feb 2021, and started the BARS reservist program in July-early August to increase the Russian military's manpower, which preceded the fall of Kabul.
On new @SkullduggeryPod I asked @elliotackerman, best selling writer who served 5 tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, and author of new book, The Fifth Act: America's End in Afghanistan, why he believes last year's pull-out emboldened Putin to invade Ukraine. Heres what he said:

Cheney: Two years ago. I won this primary with 73% of the vote. I could easily have done the same again. The path was clear. But it would've required that I go along with president trump's lie about the 2020 election.. That was a path I could not and would not take.

I very much enjoy and appreciate how he says ‘every single Republican’ again and again
Replying to @atrupar
Biden: "Let's be clear: In this historic moment, Democrats sided with the American people, and every single Republican in the Congress sided with the special interests in this vote ... every single one voted against tackling the climate crisis."

Both come into play at times, but if you had to choose one this is a much more realistic illustration of how successful presidential-Congress relationships work than the picture of LBJ standing very closely to Richard Russell
