    Liar. None of us are arguing that the ends justify the means. Nobody has even implied that.

I would also like to see the whistlblower.
    I think Bolton and Mulvaney are the ones people have in mind. Both have firsthand knowledge.

    And Hunter Biden of course .

    Republicans control the senate, I donít think they need permission from the democrats if they want to hear from Hunter but Hunter isnít a relevant witness.

    There are 4 relevant witnesses. 2 on each side. The prosecution should call Rudy and Trump while the defense should call Hunter and Joe. No one else would make as much impact.

    If you put Trump on the stand I'll give you a 2:1! That would be utter suicide.

    I think the Republicans' response today, in particular, is setting the stage for why, exactly, Hunter is at the very center of this whole thing.

    We've had weeks and weeks of endless rumor and gossip from the Democrats, and now they're being hit with the facts and the law, as well as their own contrary testimony from previous impeachment situations.

    Trump's team is killing it.

    Out of curiosity, is there some rule that says the House managers have to be sitting Representatives rather than hired attorneys with actual litigation experience? Because Schiff and his crew are so far out of their league it's embarrassing.

    I can't find anything that prevents the House Managers from including outside counsel, but their own resolution limits their side to actual US Representatives from the House.

    I almost have to believe that Schiff was so blinded by his disdain for Trump, and so overconfident in his own ability, that he thought this would be such a slam dunk. He's had the wind at his back this whole time, with the national media and so much of the public just lapping up his gossip and his generous piles of horsie poo....

    It's amazing. It's like "the children have pitched their fits, and now the adults have entered the room".

    Again...

    In a lawsuit the first to speak seems right, until someone comes forward and cross-examines.

    Politicians are so used to dealing in half-truths and outright lies that I think Schiff may have genuinely forgotten how to present an honest, factual argument.

    You most certainly have.
