“The Democrats & Shifty Schiff, whose presentation to the Senate was loaded with lies and misrepresentations, are refusing to state that the Obama Administration withheld aid from many countries including Ukraine, Pakistan, Philippines, Egypt, Honduras, & Mexico. Witch Hunt!”

Still after Obama after all these years. ‘Because I said so’ is not a legal defense. ‘Because someone else did it too’ is not a legal defense.

Again, if they have the docs and witnesses that prove his innocence, release it all and let it come forward.

Otherwise, how can I miss you if you won’t go away?

Tell us AGAIN how he is doing ‘the Nation’s business’ with over 100 tweets yesterday. He is guilty as sin. He KNOWS it. The Senators KNOW it but folksy aholes like Kennedy from LA are out there saying ‘I don’t HAVE to read the transcripts…I’ve been hearing some good discussion on them!’ MORONS. They are out there for the rubes who are asking ‘isn’t it OK to ask for foreign interference???’

Since tweets have been confirmed as official records, can we get some of these presented during the trial? Then let the Chief Justice admonish the president

Is it too much to hope that he just blows a gasket in the next few days?? His blood pressure must be through the roof…

(I know, I know, this won’t solve all the problems, but it might de-fang a few…)

The man is clinically disturbed. We can only hope the damage he leaves behind will be for one term only.

Majority says they doubt impeachment trial will change their minds: poll

In a poll from The Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, three quarters of Americans said that the trial is not likely at all or not very likely to change their views of the president’s alleged criminal activity.

That’s really a misleading title. The effect is that a significant minority (25%) are likely or very likely to change their minds. That is huge.

And, look at what the National Archives is going to have to deal with.

I think what was meant was “unfazed” but considering his mental derailment issues “unphased” definitely also applies… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Trump spools out a tissue of lies, written on digital toilet paper. Democratic presidential candidates are wiping his ass with it, and the digital toilet is overflowing. We’re gonna need a bigger digital mop.
