    Er, yes they can actually. Its called nobody is above the law. last time I looked the Dear Leader ain't no dictator above the law.

    Are you at all aware how your democracy functions? Do you have a clue what rule of law is all about?

    I can't get over the absurdity of trumpian defenses.

    Who cares?

    An "Impeachable Offense" does NOT have to be a per se Statutory Crime.

    ^Everybody KNOWS that. :salute:

    The fact is no rational human being could have watched the sworn testimony and not realize Trump is a dirty dog. He surrounds himself with scoundrels so that when it hits the fan those guys can't run because they are dirty themselves.

    It is astonishing how corrupt Trump is.

    Yes, I understand the rule of law, the constitution, impeachment, separation of powers, even democracy, though more importantly constitutional republics. I'd explain them to you but I know you are not interested.

    When the complaint was reviewed by the DOJ and FEC when it was filed. And no we elicit things from foreign governments all the time and have a treaty with Ukraine to elicit just such investigative assistance.

    Are you claiming I am showing an ignorance of something? Are you claiming Ukraine suffered militarily due to the brief delay in funds they didn't even know were delayed?



    Which Biden? One apparently benefitted highly from it.

    What facts that are impeachable offenses? None. The four Constitutional experts were asked directly if they had any testimony to any material facts in the case and none raised their hands. None of the witnesses last week could testify to any direct knowledge of a bribe or extortion or quid pro quo. Trump was correct to hold up the money until he had had his discussions with Zelensky and he and is advisors get some assurance Ukraine would be fighting their internal corruption and that our foreign aid would be used properly and they would abide by our mutual cooperation treaty. The Democrats don't like that one of their may be caught up in it. Pound sand.

    Thanks for admitting that this whole impeachment inquisition is nothing but political.

    You do realize that the Democrats are going to pay dearly for this?

    I disagree.

    That said, I guess we won't be able to prove (or disprove) that thesis until next November.

    Of all the charges against 45, refusing the subpoena(s) is the one I am most concerned with.

    Investigating the Bidens needed(s) to happen. Based on the evidence I've seen the President exercised, at best, shockingly poor judgment on how to do that. How could you not know that investigating a political rival just isn't something you can do w/ hamfists?

    At worst, its Trump using his responsibilities to target political rivals. Its not right, and needs to be dealt with, but removal from the office is a bridge too far for me. Sanction his ass sure, but impeachment? Nah.

    That said, there is(was) more then enough evidence to justify a thorough investigation, and that requires getting all the facts. 45's refusal in and of itself justifies impeachment. If other presidents have done it, they should have been impeached for similar reasons.

    A congress can't oversee a president behind a stonewall.

    For its part, the House should have waited to see what the SCOTUS rules on the subpoena's. I believe they would have mandated compliance from Trump. Its entirely possible that w/ that evidence in hand, the shadow over 45 would be lifted, which is why I suspect evidence is being withheld.

    If you want to convince people Trump did something you should provide some evidence beyond whining and hearsay...

    The Senate, which has a majority of Republicans. I know they only need a 2/3 majority to impeach but many Democrats are questioning the whole witch hunt. So it's going to be close.
    Presiding over the impeachment proceedings will be John Roberts, who's original nomination to the Supreme Court was withdrawn by George W. Bush. Then the vote was held for his appointment Charles Schumer, Joe Biden and Dianne Feinstein voted against his appointment.
    Going to be very interesting.

    And that is the elephant in the room here, THAT investigation which if it is not already engaged NEEDS to be engaged. We STILL need to know if there was corruption involved in that whole deal. Joe Biden running for the Democratic nomination be damned. That does not give his son immunity from investigation into a probable cause of corruption was involved in his activities.

    Catherine Herridge going to one of the MSM networks can't work for too long I wouldn't think.

    She's a pretty straight shooter... they're not interested in truth or balance, they want fodder against Republicans, and fluff pieces on Democrats.

    It's only a matter of time before they start spiking her stories.

    According to your BLOTUS EVERYTHING that comes from the MSM is fake news.

    You don't get to CHERRY PICK because it would be HYPOCRITICAL to do so!

    Either the ENTIRE MSM is fake news or NONE of it is fake news.

    You either support your BLOTUS or you are opposed to him.

    Those are HIS RULES and if you are NOT going to obey them then you MUST be opposed to him.
