• Well, there's no actual trial proceedings until 1 PM today (1/22/20).

      You didn't find yesterday's proceedings interesting?

      Yesterday's action was the equivalent of a bunch of kids negotiating which house would be the foul line and how many sewers equals a home run, with an adult yelling from a window to keep their language clean or she'd call their mothers.

      Did not! Did too! Did not! Did too! Did not! Did too!
  • Just Teflon Don trying his best to imitate the mafia lord's he's seen on those old movies. Whatever happens he's got impeachment on his record.

      There is no quid pro quo unless you hear violin music playing during the phone call.

      "Impeachment on his record?" What does that mean? Do you think anyone's going to be looking at his resume anytime soon?
  • Doesn't matter. What was his impeachable "crime"? Nothing! This is one can of worms the dems can't close now!! They grabbed a viper by the tail and threw it at Trump. It didn't bite. Now they have an angry snake loose in The Senate. Who gets bit next is anyone's guess. Its all just a distraction to keep the focus off the fact these so called representatives are doing nothing for the people they are supposed to represent. They should all be replaced! And this is the year to do it!!

      Agreed. I see no crime that he's committed to justify his impeachment. That's one of the reasons the Founders made impeachment process the way it is. You shouldn't get rid of a President because he's not doing what Congress wants him to do, the way they want him to do it. But the sad part of all of this is, in my opinion, is that eventually, nothing will change. The same politicians will continue doing the same thing they have been. Trump will probably get re-elected and the leftists will continue trying to remove him from office. We'll have 4 more years of endless investigations.

      He is being impeached over alleged abuse of power and obstruction of congress. The first is undoubtedly an impeachable offense, if substantiated by a preponderance of evidence. Congress, however, has only relatively weak evidence of the crime. That's the reason for the second charge, though, is because congress has issued tons of subpoenas and the executive branch has refused to comply with any of them. This is a balance of power issue, not a criminal offense, IMO. However, if you or I failed to comply with a congressional subpoena, we'd have a federal boot up our asses before you could say "obstruction." The entire thing is a political pissing match to see who bends first. There is no way that the Republican Senate would get a 2/3 vote to remove Trump from office, so the House Democrats are trying to spin this thing to retake the Senate somehow. It's also very likely, no matter who the Democrats choose as their nominee, that Trump will lose the popular vote and win the electoral vote. All of these things only deepen the divide between "red" and "blue" Americans.
