    I think Schiff has done the Democrats an incredible disservice.
    I tend to think it says something very bad about the moral state of our country. Of course, that statement is made at every Trump rally. I was just hoping it wasn't a majority.

    I can see why you would think that.

    What statement? I don't go to or watch Trump rallies.

    I was just hoping it wasn't a majority.
    I'll have to wait and see to what statement you are referring.

    Democrats Hoped to Sway Republicans on Impeachment. That Dream Has Failed to Become a Reality

    Twelve witnesses. Five days. Zero Republican defectors.

    With the public phase of the House impeachment inquiry believed to be complete, Democrats are inching closer to impeaching President Donald Trump. But there remains to be any House Republican who has indicated they support the removal of the president—leaving GOP leadership worry-free.

    Despite several current and former administration officials painting a damning portrait of a president who sought to pressure a foreign counterpart to engage in investigations abroad that would benefit him politically here at home, Republicans did not budge. Democrats have, as a result, appear to have failed to persuade their colleagues across the aisle.

    In fact, the moderate GOP members whom Democrats pointed to as potential swing voters who could shift the impeachment tide within the Republican Party swung the opposite direction, backing their colleagues' opinion that the allegations that Trump engaged in bribery or abused his power lack evidence. And while his alleged wrongdoing may have very well been improper, they said, they've made clear their belief that Trump's actions do not deserve impeachment.


    It's not looking so good for the HateTrumpAllTheTime crowd.

    Yeah, and those talking points aren't much more popular than impeachment.

    Trump is trying to create the same game plan that he used in 2016. He didn't care about Biden corruption, he just wants the narrative out there, he just wanted Zelensky to annouce the beginnings of an investigation into Biden on CNN. Besides, you guys really have to stop buying into the stupidity they throw at you. If Trump was concerned about corruption in Ukraine he wouldn't have sent Giuliani and his two amigos there to focus on Burisma, or demand that Zelensky announce an investigation into Burisma. It just takes a person with a modicum of common sense to recognise Trumps target was Biden, not corruption in general.

    You call it nonsense and delusion because of your psychological state which prevents you from seeing anything other than what you already believe. Fundraising has nothing to do with it, Trump, as is the republican way, has a lot of wealth and corporate money coming in, Dems are trying to break out of , and destroy the corrupt system.
    "Dems are trying to break out of , and destroy the corrupt system."


    It sure looks that way, don't it, yup.

    It's not what's coming into the RNC, but what's not coming into the DNC that should alarm you.

    The 1630 Fund is a 501c organization which is banned by law from contributing, or publicly supporting, any political candidate. You'd do well to research after finding something that you believe supports your perspective prior to citing it. Trump is rolling in corporate and wealthy donor cash, the dems, for the most part are rejecting it.

    "Vote for us and we'll give you everything for free" turns out to be a lousy fundraising slogan.

    Maybe that woman didn't get the house Obama promised?

    It certainly doesn't seem to support your "Dems are trying to break out of , and destroy the corrupt system" much either. Perhaps it just means for the Dems that desperate times require desperate measures.
