    Default REP SENATORS SCARED TO CALL WITNESSES to AID TRUMP DEFENSE

    You know, I hadn't even thought of this. And it is obvious. REPS get to STACK the witness list in Trump's favor. Then DEMS will get a list of witnesses too. Then DEMS will get to ask questions of REPS own hand picked witnesses. Remember DEMs witnesses have all been vetted as they have testified and can be brought back.

    What I hadn't thought of is just how TOXIC Trump's OWN witnesses could turn out to be. Remember we've not heard a WORD from any material witness (except Sondland) as Trump wouldn't let them testify though Sondland did anyway!

    EVERYONE around Trump is so corrupt and/or couldn't talk even if they wanted to so who the F are they going to find to bolster ANY defense? And here's the BIGGY. Everyone in on the UKRANIAN "drug deal" and coverup to 'defend' him is on the "drug deal". Including Pence.

    Everyone doing the enabling and covering up are the very people Trump wants called up. Reps are terrified of THAT. One thing to perjure yourself behind close doors with no cameras. It's another to have been BLOCKED from going in to talk to begin with and then PERJURING YOURSELF at trial in front of the CAMERAS. And REPS won't know what they don't know because there is no transcript from the House hearings.

    Imagine if these clowns bumble, fumble, and contradict their OWN WORS under oath when many of his 'defenders' can't get through a FOX interview without fucking up.

    PS Would you go to JAIL for Donald Trump?


    McConnell blocked by his own party from calling impeachment witnesses Trump wants for Senate trial: report
    Published

    Tom Boggio

    According to a report from the New York Times, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is finding his hands tied by members of his own party who are skeptical over the appropriateness of calling some the witnesses Donald Trump — and a few of his House Republican enablers — want to appear.

    As the Times notes, “While Democrats who control the House are focused on a swift impeachment vote by year’s end, the White House is almost entirely consumed by the trial that would follow in the Republican-controlled Senate, where Mr. Trump’s team believes he would have the chance to defend himself and where Democrats would almost certainly fall short of the two-thirds vote they would need to remove him from office...

    That will pale by comparison.

    Dear Red-State Trump Voter,
    Let’s face it, guys: We’re done.


    It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.

    This is why our separation in all but name is necessary.

    Yep, I actually think there ARE SOME who are willing to do it! But McConnell and SMARTER REPS or 'LAWYERS' won't let it happen. They know everyone will know what is going on, and they sure as hell don't wanna watch it in real time on the 'big screens'. One rebuttal to an answer from a transcript of those who have testified to the HOUSE read on TV and the jig is up.

    I CAN NOT believe ballless WIMPS up and down their party chain are afraid of this blowhard POG.

    That means they are terrified of their OWN voters.

    Has anyone else done the math on TRUMP voters? Using Trump's 90% approval rating of REPUBLICAN VOTERS and assuming every single one of them votes for him AGAIN and he only got 46.1% LAST TIME, if he loses 10% of them, in every state he won last time, he can't win.

    He'll need RUSSIA--AGAIN.

    There is nothing showing he is losing 10% of his supporters. I would argue that he is gaining supporters due to the economy. Hence the impeachment kabuki theater.

    Problem is Schiff fucked Nancy good. She had one shot at this and he blew it. She has no real good options

    If she backs off her rabid anti American base goes all ANTIFA on her

    They won’t accept half measures like Censure

    She does not want this to go to the Senate.

    No good options

    Meanwhile the economy hums along and virtually guarantees Trumps re-election. There is nothing you can do about it

    this thread is odd, given that Schiff refused the witness list the Republicans submitted.....one might almost think JPP lib'ruls want to deflect and deny the truth of their failure to convince the world of their fantasies.....

    The obvious remedy is to have an actual impeachment lol.

    Have the stinking vote already, so both sides can put all their cards on the table. This thing—I’m not sure what to call it—isn’t an ‘impeachment’ much less anything resembling a ‘trial’ where the accused is even required to defend himself.

    They don't have the votes, or they would have voted already.
