    For the most part, the Republicans appear to be treading very lightly because of the potential for them to appear to be "beating up a girl", though it is well established that she's a quite capable woman.

    It's all about optics.

    If I'm not mistaken bribery in the Context of Impeachment is only impeachable if Trump was the one being bribed not Trump making sure that there is no corruption in the foreign government receiving before the U.S. gives them aid of any kind. kinda shows how much of a kangaroo court the Democrats have made of Impeachment.

    I'm reading that Nunes tried to concede his time to a female representative to ask questions, but Schiff blocked it saying that Nunes "can only yield time to GOP counsel".

    I was watching that.... Schiff is being very controlling and manipulating.

    Twitter was important enough to interrupt the hearing? Yeah, right.

    Roy, I am on my phone so forgive me if I have the wrong thread. I think we discussed motive in passing and I said none of the principles had testified. I was mistaken. Sondland is a principle and has testified.

    Jim L thinks he's a perjurer so it doesn't help much but I wanted to keep it straight.

    The above appears to exist only in the fetid imaginations of the TDS crew with the only evidence coming from second, third and even fourth degree hearsay like the old REO Speedwagon song:
    "Heard it from a friend who
    Heard it from a friend who
    Heard it from another..."

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Alleged, not proven, facts not evidence. Actual fact: Trump supplied the lethal assistance Obama denied.
