Just to make sure we all keep our expectations as low as possible...

People are upset about democrats having trouble addressing student loans or somesuch while republicans call for jailing the people investigating the crimes of republicans.

Gosh, that clip sure makes it seem like...Newt...is somehow involved.

He's been a little bitch for nearly three decades--likely longer still as his efforts as Speaker to walk us back from the brink of a socialist regime under Clinton have been wildly overstated--but now he appears to be on Death's doorstep. Jesus Christ.

It's apparent as ever that Biden needs to do more work across the aisle...for unity.

What a word.

Once again, calls for unity without apologies and meaningful action from the Republican party are false, arrogant and insincere. And given the huge spike driven into the partisan fracture since 6th January, especially with Republican vitriol aimed at anybody even remotely guilty of thoughtcrime by being on the Committee, it doesn't look like it will ever come. Ever. Ever, ever, ever.

The Republican party has permanently 🤬ed the United States of America and every US citizen for their own selfish, meagre, self-serving, pathetic, insecure, hypocritical ends.

for unity.
Sarcasm taken...

It would help if folks were remotely realistic about what unity can entail. First and foremost, there has to be some agreement or common ground on the basic principles of the nation. Principles like a government for and by the people, seeking to actually represent the people and striving to accurately elect representatives. Principles like the rule of law, and accountability for crimes. There are republicans willing to uphold the basics. It's worth noting that the January 6th committee is a bipartisan committee, with one of its most forceful members coming from the republicans specifically.

There's no valuable unity with Ted Cruz, or DeSantis, Rand Paul, or someone like Devin Nunez. And to the extent that that's the goal, it's a bad goal.

Sixteen GTPers indicated that they voted, or would vote, for the Trump/Pence ticket.

Have any of those sixteen people changed their minds or regretted it?

Why would they go to jail?

They’re clearly just trying to get to the bottom of why the FBI went undercover in Antifa to frame tourists.
So it wasn't to appease their Marxist fascist BLM masters after all?

I blame critical race theory. Again. And green M&M's.

I know this is a joke but it's an interesting question anyway.

Because they "broke laws". What laws? Uh... I mean I presume Newt is referring to subpoenaing documents which Trump tried to conceal via executive privilege. That's of course not a violation of the law (upheld by an 8:1 majority supreme court decision). But Trump seemed to think they couldn't do it. Not that it would have been illegal for them to subpoena documents that were concealed under executive privilege. Trump's best outcome there was to simply not provide the documents. Jailing the requesters is right out.

It appears to be full on crack smokery by newt.
