43 Senate R’s deserve condemnation. Of the other 7, only Murkowski faces the voters next year, though she’s won as an independent; Collins, Sasse and Cassidy have six years to repent; Romney is determined to get even; Burr and Toomey are quitting. No profiles in courage. 🤮

My Super Bowl prediction: the big winner is going to be United States of America. We need it.

So today all Americans must serve our nation — through both words and deeds — to save us from the abyss. (3/3)

It is necessary for those with power like the media, tech, big companies, the legal community and others to act decisively to reject lawlessness and autocracy, and they are. But that action of the elites also potentially stokes more violence from the disaffected. (2/3)

This is the Civil War of 2021.  The president is selfish and desperate. Beyond him is a political leadership vacuum. The American people have been badly misinformed, most Republicans still support the president and many disaffected Americans are attracted to violence. (1/3)

The women — Murkowski, Chao, DeVos, Pelosi — are leading us out of the wilderness.

No need to over -think what just happened to Republicans in Georgia. You can’t tell your base for 2 full months that the process is rigged against them, and then wonder why not enough of them showered up to participate in the rigged process.

Yeah the January 6 stuff is wrong, but.... I think there’s another way of looking at this... First, the challenges are going nowhere, which is a testament to our institutions and those who serve in them... Second, the shenanigans in the Senate and the House among some...

The constitutional pardon power should be removed by amendment. It's been badly abused by a lot of presidents. I'd be ok with maintaining it during the first term of a president before his re-election date or thereafter if recommended by the Dept of Justice.

I would love for reporters to ask every Republican member of the US Senate the following question:“Should Donald Trump declare martial law?”
