    No, the Dems will look like the fools they've looked like for the past 3 years. And the Bidens will have their names dragged through the mud just in time for the election. And Trump will still be President and get re-elected.

    Except that when they were impeaching Clinton, they made it a far fairer process. And a Repub Senate failed to convict.

    No one can be truly that stupid.
    LOL! They trotted out "witness" after "witness" who couldn't say they heard Trump say there was a quid pro quo. You also have Zelensky saying there was no quid pro quo and not doing what was allegedly demanded of him. How do your need befire it it enters your concrete-walled cranium that the Dems have NO CASE AT ALL?

    Idiot, they subpoenaed 10 witnesses who Trump blocked from testifying plus an additional 2 that were blocked but not subpoenaed.

    Stop pretending to be a retard.

    He's an idiot. Trump's own chief of staff said it was a 'quid pro quo', with the television cameras rolling no less.

    Hey braindead, all that's need is Zelensky's (and now Yernak's) denial and no investigation started.

    Re: Articles of impeachment are coming

    You do realize what's about to happen if and hopefully this goes on to the Senate and what's about to happen to very vulnerable democrat candidates 31 of them that reside in districts that Trump won by big margins.

    Nancy all the luck in moving it forward really get this through the House please.

    She needs those 31 which 2 of are not going to support already wait till the others do the math, I hope the mission is completed. Ever play chess? This is going to be awesome baby!!

    Like I said in the other thread, look at the 2018 results for the House. We have more to fear if we don't impeach, what with majority of voters favoring it.

From a young age, we are taught about how great they are and how they basically invented modern democracy and their system is the best there ever was or ever will be. As it turns out, they were a bunch of white male land owners (many slave owners as well) who made a system that worked for them and didn't really take into account anyone else. But too many people have trouble accepting that reality because they spend our entire youth drilling it into our heads that the Founding Fathers and our system are great.

    Beyond that, we don't listen to the smart people. George Washington warned of the dangers of political parties in his farewell address. Eisenhower warned of the military industrial complex in his farewell address (and in case anyone doesn't know history, Ike was a Republican who rose to prominence by being a general during WWII, so it's not like he was some left-winger on a soap box about corporations and the military). They were both right but no one listened and now we have two political parties that are both in the pockets of the MIC, along with other corporate interests.
    What makes this a huge pile of **** is the fact that the document the 'Founding Fathers' came up with is filled with mechanisms that allow not only checks and balances, but outright change, including revisions to the document itself.

    Pretty sure if they wanted a system that worked for them only and disregarded everybody else the language would be more restrictive and ironclad.

    They didn't...refusing to call a witness and blocking a subpoenaed witness from testifying are two different things.

    You know what I agree you are now in a very bad position and are likely in a no win position. The voters that aren't will be pissed as well as the voters that are in favor.

    Re: Articles of impeachment are coming

    https-::www.reuters.com:article:us-usa-trump-impeachment-whitehouse:trump-to-address-impeachment-charges-in-u-s-senate-trial-white-house-idUSKBN1YE1VH

    The House could vote as soon as next week. The charges conclude weeks of investigation and hearings, which Trump has derided as one-sided and failing to offer him a fair opportunity to present his side. The White House has refused repeated requests for senior officials to testify and for relevant documents.

    All those guns but they are used on the innocent because courage is non-existent in today's American society.

    I remember, not that long ago, when there were disagreement between the two major parties, but disagreements of substance and ideology. Today...and what started with the rise of talk radio, is the attack on truth and facts themselves.

    THAT has NOTHING to do with parties. It has to do with the bad faith of too many people.
    Bad faith, or people treating the world like it's a game to be won?

    Always a possibility. I think the only way it would happen like that would be if they did secret ballot voting. Only a few R's would have to switch in order to make it happen. I don't know if there's any precedent for something like that... just something I read somewhere.

    They're different means of achieving the same end result: preventing a witness from testifying.

    I answered that the Dems blocked witnesses as well. If you think Trump has something to hide, then you have to also admit the Dems do as well.

    They’re risking more than their re-election. Just think about the armed nut jobs in this country. Senators can’t vote unless present.
