    "Trust, but verify" is as far as I'm willing to take it with politicians. I just don't get it. I can't imagine living my life that way.
    Doesn't prove the elements of an actual crime - or even of an abuse of power.

    You wanna prove Trump did something wrong then prove - not infer - PROVE intent. It's one of the two critical elements (the other being which election) that hasn't even been addressed in any manner other than pure speculation.

    You probably already know how I feel about attempts at outing the WB. I watched the clip in that article and if that's the example you lead with...



    I admit I didn't catch as much of the Judiciary hearing as the others. Is Schiff even on the Judiciary Committee? In any case, there was lots of efforts of Republicans to disrupt that hearing. So I image that, and the faux outrage when their bad faith disruptions were shut down, is what you're remembering. I'm open to being proven wrong, but the fact that half of the day was spent on the Barron / baron joke leads to believe there was little legitimate outrage.

    If you find a video clip of Republican questioning from that hearing being shut down I'll take a look though.



    Ok, what *relevant* witnesses were denied? Hunter Biden? I said someone *other* than him to being with! Even if HB was dirty he *still* would have been an irrelevant witness.

    There were valid reasons not to bring the WB into that hearing, not the least of which everything he reported has since been confirmed by witnesses with more direct knowledge of his claims.

    Sorry :/.
    Schiff leads Intel; he's not on Judiciary.

    Ciaramella is not entitled to whistle blower status as he contacted Schiff's office BEFORE filing the complaint which voids the claim. Other than to protect Schiff's misconduct, there's no valid reason to exclude Ciaramella as a witness even if he were entitled to whistle blower protection. None.

    Much of the complaint has been discredited, not confirmed. Worse, it reads like a lawyer wrote it or helped a lot.

    Biden would be a witness toward motive and should not be excluded in a fair proceeding.

    Probably not - it would likely be heard by the Court itself as a pretrial motion and Roberts might choose to recuse himself from that.

    Nope, just like the rest of the Trump defenders here, you're simply in denial, Tea. If Trump without justification shot and murdered someone on 5th ave in broad daylight, you and MM would still try to rationalize it as legal. He defined you, his supporters, during his campaign. Little did we recognize at the time how well he really knew you.

    Wash rinse repeat - you get all excited over the new shiny bombshell and all defensive when it turns into yet another dud.

    And this time, it's gonna be a whooping goose egg. You forget - I wanna see what happens when the garbage the House threw together hits a real trial with real evidentiary standards. Oh and FYI - since Bolton wasn't subpoenaed by the House good luck convincing a judge he's now somehow necessary.

    Which aspects have been discredited?

    Good thing we no longer have to speculate about Trump's possibly having a legitimate motive after the document dump from today if you saw Rudy's letter to Zelensky.

    Bad news for the bad guys :).

    ETA: Here's some WhatsApp messages about tracking Marie Yavonovitch's movement's and hinting at planning her murder(!).

    Beyond sickening.

    Assuming these are legit anyone ready to get off the Trump Train yet?
    I doubt it. Most of these guys gave up a moral position in favor of Trump long ago. They'll just come up with more excuses for why it's ok after all.

    No “duds.” The impeachment inquiry found that Trump, personally and through agents solicited the interference of a foreign government to benefit his reelection. And, despite unequaled stonewalling by the WH, numerous witness testimony supported this accusation.

    Dream on...

    Oh and FYI - since Bolton wasn't subpoenaed by the House good luck convincing a judge he's now somehow necessary.
    Bolton has already said that he will respond to a subpoena about the "drug-deal" he witnessed during the Ukraine maneuverings – no need to take it to the court.

    And it isn't as if whistleblowers haven't testified before Congress before.
