    A person is arrested that was involved with mail bombings for Democrats. Question, if this person makes a deal and testifies that Trump was the person who initiated the bombs, will there be a case for Impeachment?

    The real question is if they find out that the Democrats were sending bombs to themselves will they still have a chance at winning the upcoming elections.

    I can't find any stories about someone arrested. Do you have a link?

    My MIL was just reading a couple of news stories on Facebook.
    At this stage of the game I can't be bothered reading about it, since I won't believe much until more facts are in.
    But, apparently at least one bomber has been identified and arrested.

    The problem is that Trump didn't initiate the bombs in any meaningful sense.

    The events aren't surprising given the polarisation in the US, but Dems wouldn't be directly responsible if someone sent bombs to Trump because they perceived him as a 'fascist'.

    I can imagine that being the "real question" to low information voters.

    I think the real question is did Trump send the bombs pretending to be Dems pretending to be Republicans so the Dems would lose the election.

    Actually, that kind of thing was common in Russia just before their Revolution of 1917.

    You don't see the irony in that? Who are the high information voters?

    Not just Russia, either. Let's not forget everything that led to WW1.

    NPR reports someone has been arrested, but gives no more details than that.

    No. Unless he works for trumps company. But then again no because i am not sure trump has much to do with its actual running and more of an figurehead who demands it be dysfunctional or they are fired.

    No. Most of us are idiots and Dems certainly don't have the monopoly on terrorism. The uh, Repubs? have a pretty good handle on it as well. Republicans tend to use the "Jihad from the foreign heathen inhuman forces of evil false flag" scenario whereas the Democrats tend to use the old fashioned deceive the public play the false marytyr / hero act.

    You know, 911 or the death of Osoma Bin Laden just before the presidential election years after he had already died.

    Also the Reichstag fire.

    Started by an individual, perhaps mentally ill. The Nazis blamed a communist conspiracy, and the communist propaganda chief Willi Munzenberg, blamed a Nazi false flag to justify attacking the commies. Both sides benefitted from the event.

    I saw a news report saying that Trump is claiming this is going to hurt Republicans in voting I suspect because these were Republicans doing it. WHy would Dems try to kill themselves?
