    Republicans are in the room in every one of these hearings where witnesses are testifying. Why do you guys keep lying about this?

    You compare a duly elected President of the United States and Congress with a local investigation?

    Leftists defense of behind closed door "investigations", hidden witnesses, and not allowing the opposition to call witnesses.

    The Soviets would be impressed with what the Democratic Party has become.

    Only one party can call witnesses. Only one party can determine if a witness is held anonymous. Only one party has worked with the "Whistle Blower".

    This is a Soviet style attack on political opponents.

    Did Mick Mulvani not just testify in favor of Trump? That was my understanding.
    Trump can have all the due process he wants assuming there ends up being a trial. Learn how the justice system works before crying fowl.

    Actually, an impeachment inquiry that hasn't even been formalized by a vote in the full house is a big nothing, so there is no actual process. I guess you could call it a pre-process to see if there is enough evidence to begin an impeachment inquiry.

    It's basically a couple cops talking about how they'd like to arrest somebody, but they don't have enough to even pull him over for a broken taillight yet.

    That part of the impeachment process happens in the Senate.

    Where do you keep getting lost? This investigation is not secret, or held behind closed doors by 1 party only. It is bipartisan. Republicans can and are participating.

    Do you have a shred of evidence that the following is not true, "Schiff has made an opening statement and allowed a Republican lawmaker to do the same. Counsels for and members of both parties have questioned witnesses and both parties were given equal representation and time, he wrote."

    If he hasn't, why haven't Repubs said so? All we hear are whiny complaints about process because Repubs do not want to discuss the substance of what these witnesses are testifying to. I grow tired of unsubstantiated smears as a substitute for actual facts.

    There's nothing "secret" about it when half the room is filled with Republicans

    Be careful not to shatter their fragile world of make believe. This is a vulnerable time for Trumpette's.

    This is an investigation, not a trial. Both parties are present. Republicans did this to Hillary multiple times. Where were you then?

    ANDREW NAPOLITANO: ...the White House lawyers, "You can't issue a subpoena until there's a vote." Well, the Republicans changed the rules when John Boehner was Speaker of the House, allowing each individual committee to issue subpoenas, without a House-wide vote. So those subpoenas are valid, and people who resist them, ignore them, put them in a drawer, do so at their peril. If you get a subpoena that asks for something that you don't think you should have to produce, you have to challenge the subpoena, you can't ignore it.

    and what happens when somebody flips the democratic house the bird, as is happening now? Well, then it's referred to the DC federal court that is headed by an Obama appointee. She'll have to make a ruling on that, which will be kicked upstairs to the supreme court. I'm not really sure that the house can just change the rules as there are several SCOTUS decisions regarding congress's ability to issue subpoenas even with a full vote on the house floor.

    I'm not entirely sure how the district court will rule on a contempt of congress charge in this instance, but I must say that I'm enjoying the 3 ring political circus. At the end of the day, the worst thing that can happen is that people will be charged with contempt of congress, That carries a fine of 1k dollars and possible jail sentence between 1 month to a year. Trump could then start writing get out of jail cards if he wanted, and then we'd be right back to square one.

    im mostly conservative, except when it comes to environmental issues. So I lean towards republicans. But all the politicians in Washington on both sides are a bunch of crooked bastards.

    Wondering why she was able to receive a subpoena, not honor it, destroy files covered by the subpoena, then destroy the devices covered by the subpoena, and see NOTHING happen to her for destroying evidence and obstructing justice and not honoring a legal subpoena. That is where I was, as should have been you.

    Because she is a Democrat Deep State soft serve, I mean soft coup? What I can not understand is why Trump’s DOJ hasn’t already arrested her. Any ideas?

    Trump, Barr and everyone else who supports him have been flipping the dem housers the bird for quite some time now. I do not expect them to quit either. That’s what makes this whole thing so darn much fun. As long as old Trumpy is around, this is how it’s going to be. Crowds of his fans will cheer him and self righteous Democrat sissies will feign outrage every night on TV. Who could ask for more?
