    Karl Marx knew a thing or two about bureaucrats.

    "The bureaucracy is a circle from which one cannot escape. Its hierarchy is a hierarchy of knowledge. The top entrusts the understanding of detail to the lower levels, whilst the lower levels credit the top with understanding of the general, and so all are mutually deceived." Karl Marx, The Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts of 1844.

    These self deluded hot house bureaucrats are being stripped bare under the spotlight of this absurd show trial. The whole world is watching.

    Well, it probably couldn't stand to watch any more after lunch.

    I like the point by Quigley.

    If the minority party wants to bitch and moan about hearsay, then they should join us in demanding that the Trump administration stop preventing the release of documents and witnesses to the investigation.

    What hearings? I think the viewership, or lack there of specifically, is indicative of the national response. So few people care that Schiff is grandstanding again. It's pointless. Pelosi should have known better and frankly so should the networks who demanded that she stage this public coup attempt.

    When the words "impeach Trump" have been rolling off your tongue since before the 2016 election, you're not credible.

    Not for Democrats... See Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, Alexandra Chalupa, Hillary Clinton who have all worked with foreign entities against the President of the United States or the nation and nothing has happened to any of them. Laws are now selectively applied depending on ideology.

    Not sure who said it, but it's absolutely accurate: "This is an impeachment proceeding in search of a crime."

    I'm still not sure what the value is of pointing out that the Trump administration is doing more militarily than the Obama administration??

    It's not really in dispute and has ZERO to do with this hearing or these witnesses...

    The best aid package in the world is useless if the country doesn't get it as and when authorized...

    No doubt.
    That's why their PR team comes up with a new buzz word every day. They have nothing

    Heard Schiff for brains on NPR this morning talking about it’s the House and Senates duty to root out corruption and take a stand now. WOW. So you going on and on about all your proof that Trump was working for Russia came from where? Oh that’s right. You were MAKING **** UP AGAIN. And if he cared one iota about corruption then he would have been leading the charge for Hillary’s head back when she colluded with foreign sources to get info on Trump and should have been outraged that she destroyed evidence while she was being investigated. And he would be doing everything possible to find out why Biden used his govt influence and our tax dollars to protect his son.

    It is a sign of desperation in trying to find a defense of Trump's behavior.

    "Trump can't be corrupt because he gave them lethal aid and Obama did not!"

    They're doing whatever investigations they need I assume.

    They certainly didn't do what was supposedly demanded of them for aid.

    I've stuck with my "buzzword" since the release of the text messages from Volker on 10/3.... It's Extortion....

    It's not bribery and it's not QPQ and it's not favors and it's not pressure.... it's Extortion

    I'm just waiting for the rest of the world to catch up...

    Some have... most haven't...

    In that way it is exactly like the Russia hoax, and both based on hearsay.

    This public flop staged by Schiff and his ilk gives Pelosi an opportunity to shank her left critics and blame them for all the electoral damage to the DP.

    We're 'extorting' Iran and China today to get them to change their policy, is that impeachable? It's what presidents do, and some of it ends up helping them politically. This whole impeachment sham is for no other reason than helping the Democrats politically because they know their dud candidates can't beat Trump.
