" Shelby said “those are just statements, political” and “they make them all the time.”"

Shenanigans, simply shenanigans! Presidents will be presidents. Always underfoot, making mayhem, but ya gotta love 'em. Right?

Shelby is a pathetic enabler who has consumed too much Trump Kool Aid. In fact, he’s drunk…

You’re going to have to prove to me that Trump is actually Human, Shelby. I’m not taking that on faith.

Well, I don’t know that has been actually proven,” Shelby said. “You know, that’s all in dispute, of what happened, whether the Russians were involved in it, whether Ukrainians involved in it, who was involved in it, and to what extent. But I’ve never seen anything that — where Trump actually was involved in.”

It wasn’t a “mistake of judgment”, but an actual strategy. They went after Porschenko first, then Zelensky, and on numerous occasions. We already know that - even with Trump’s unprecedented obstruction and without the testimony of Bolton, Pompeo, Perry, and Mulvaney.

Not to mention Trump still calls it the “perfect call”.

Yeah. Tell me about it.

Look, by simple logic, a human president is not impeachable. :thinking:

In other news, looks like maybe the IC is not yet entirely supine. But no collusion! That was the collusion delusion, nothing ever happened, it’s a science fact.

Trump’s going to eventually decide he’s pissed off at Shelby for saying Trump made mistakes in judgement.

You can’t win this bull riding competition, Shelby, just hang on until you get thrown off.

Shelby then said that he “didn’t say it was OK,” but that “people do things” and “things happen.”

Soliciting foreign interference in an election, just water under the bridge.
Had he been so declasse as to wear a tan suit, however, heaven forfend!

To a sycophant like Shelby, a GOP president can break any and all laws, abuse his office, obstruct justice, and endlessly lie and it’s fine.

If Trump were a Democrat, Shelby would be yelling for his head. It’s people like Shelby who are destroying our Constitution.
