Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Here in the USA, Congress (each Huse I believe) can only dismess itself by majority vote of a quorum.

I shudder to think of a system whereby Donald Trump can just dismiss Congress on his own say-so.

Sounds more like dictatorship.

Suspending "parliament": Why it could  happen in USA
US Constitution, Art. II, Section 3

he seems to have dispensed with the Constitution, so why not? He is your Sun King, l'etat, c'est moi.

Nope.

Team Trump has plumbed more than a few plot holes in US Constitution which United States Code (USC) could have have plugged IF more members of current and past legislatures were not simply FUNCTIONAL ILLITERATES pimping patronage and predisposed to, well, "fairness" for all under de law.

But they aren't. PLUS, writing code is hard werk. So. Blue Screen of Death FTW, it is!

"Convention" meets 5th Amendment, again!

When questioning the witness Corey LEWANDOWSKI:

REP. KEN BUCK (R-CO): Do you believe that Vladmimir Putin is sitting in his office right now in the Kremilin laughing at those on the other side of the aisle are doing and believing that those on the others side of the aisle are useful idiots, helping ...
REP. SHEILA LEE (D-CA): Objection, Mr ... I have a point of order.
COMMITTEE CHAIR, REP. JEROLD NADLER (D-NY): The [?] lady will state her point of order.
REP. SHEILA LEE (D-CA): I have a point of order. According to the rules and the
rules of this committee and the House rules, um, we cannot attribute derogatory names to our colleague or motive to our colleagues. And I believe the gentleman [REP. KEN BUCK] said, 'those on the other side of the aisle are idiots.' ...
[emphasis added]

At least one fact not in evidence.
