    again - you should listen less to the GOP spin zone and more at what was actually said.

Which means that we need to act to remove him both for the principle of it, and before he (or some successor eyeing the fact Trump got away with it) is actually successful in those efforts and secures an election through illegal means.

    Again, you and others keep acting like what Trump has done is something trivial, something without long term consequence. And it is truly ignorant to do that. It's a lot like watching teenagers laugh at the warning from adults that playing in the quarry is dangerous. Then, of course, the only thing that will sober them up is if one of them dies or is seriously hurt.

    You'd think that being adults you would have learned about the folly of that sort of a mindset. But apparently not.
    And being an adult, you'd think you would have learned what a joke is. Trump has never seriously asked for help in ANY election. He may have joked about Russia getting Hillary's deleted emails, but there was never any evidence of any actual request from him or his campaign. The Mueller Report was clear on that. And assuming this fiasco is anything more than Trump being pissed about 2016 accusations is utterly unfounded. There isn't a shred of evidence that 2020 was his goal, and a heap that shows 2016 was. Adults look at evidence, Jim, not impassioned repetitive speeches made just to get the latest media sound byte.

    Likewise Jonathan Alter, also on MSNBC, assert that Schiff's presentation "[will] go down as one of the great performances even though he's in a different chamber than he belongs to."

    It is the nature of the American system of government that politics so easily overrides justice at this level of the hierarchy.
    Do you HONESTLY believe that Aunt Nancy makes ANY decisions that are not based on what will help the Democrats keep or gain power?

    From resisting impeachment, to authorizing it, to withholding the articles of impeachment..... do you think she's just a crazy old woman?

    You're a hoot, Jim. You are a chronic sufferer from TrumpOCD, although you seem to be reveling in it.

    "For precisely this reason, the president's misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box, for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won." -- Adam Schiff

    He basically came right out and said that they can't trust the American people to do the right thing at the 2020 election. That is completely authoritarian. It's not his decision. And he just admitted that the dems motive is to interfere with the 2020 election. The very thing they are accusing Trump of doing.

    Where are all the Antifa when you need them?
