imo the act of impeachment will be enough to ensure the always Trumpers will come out in full force. Cocaine Mitch will now want  to shut it down asap. He's making them hold long hours over shorter days to try to fatigue the senate into giving up. Dragging it out only increases the risk that more information comes out or people start paying attention. 

 

Its sad Dr. Funk, but I just don't think enough people in the US care that Trump has tried to use both Russia and Ukraine to hurt his opponents. I really think they just don't give a $&!#. It doesn't hit them in the wallet. 

wait until a Dem gets into the oval office again and enjoys the level of power Trump has hoisted upon the POTUS.  Repubs will lose their sh!t

so much depends on who the democrats pick. I don't see Biden energizing the left, at all. Warren probably scares people off. 

 

Maybe Bernie has a chance since he's so popular with black Americans and also that elusive millennial vote. 

I'm on record as hoping for Klobuchar, but i still see Uncle Joe as preferable to Warren or Sanders. You know the GOP is going to portray either of those as "far left" and "socialists" and from what I can see, enough Americans will be scared off by it.

 

There's nothing inspiring about Biden, but he has strong support from blacks and moderates and decent support from women. The question is, does "the left" vote for Trump out of spite because they didn't get their preferred choice again?

 

Knowing what we know about Bone Spurs, I'd say the answer is no and if the Bernie or Busters had a do-over, they'd change their 2016 votes in a heartbeat.

The "need" is more relevant, because the GOP desperately needs a new distraction from the actual focus of the trial....

impeachment hearings

 

is it just me ?

online searches to get to and review managers arguments/submissions

seem awfully hard to find

why is this ?

 

why is there not just an impeachment hearings link

that simply sets out a list of every submission made at the hearing

in order

so that a person can simply select what they might want to review

 

i have never seen anything of this importance

lack basic organization

and searchability

 

this is all a bit strange in my view

 

 but maybe there is something missing in my search skills

does anyone have a site/link that can fulflil my basic need?

President Donald Trump said at a press conference in Davos, Switzerland, on Wednesday that he opposed the impeachment of President Bill Clinton even though Clinton was doing bad things, like lying.

 

Trump added: “Now, with me, there’s no lying.

 

There isn't any video that I'm aware of, but I have to assume that his nose grew about 16 inches after that statement....:rolleyes:

That's a common excuse put forth by his supporters.

 

The answer is, "I don't know", but I have no doubt that if he isn't aware of the truth, he's also completely uninterested in finding out what it is.

Not surprising but....

The Trump administration on Thursday signed its long-promised regulation to remove millions of miles of streams and roughly half the country’s wetlands from federal protection, the largest rollback of the Clean Water Act since the modern law was passed in 1972.



 

The move delivers a major win for the agriculture, homebuilding, mining, and oil and gas industries, which have for decades sought to shrink the scope of the water law that requires them to obtain permits to discharge pollution into waterways or fill in wetlands, and imposes fines for oil spills into protected waterways.

Looks like another former Trump ally has decided that enough is enough:

 

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/newspolitics/democrats-have-a-new-impeachment-hero-fox-news-analyst-andrew-napolitano/ar-BBZi9Tc?li=AAggNb9

Quote

 

As the Senate reconvened Thursday for President Trump’s historic impeachment trial, a name began trending on Twitter among those pushing for the president’s removal from office: Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano.

 

Better known as Judge Napolitano or Judge Nap, the conservative commentator was once a Trump supporter and purveyor of conspiracy theories. But recently, Napolitano has shifted his stance on the president, voicing criticisms of Trump that are often at odds with the views of his fellow Fox News personalities.

 

Napolitano’s deviation from Fox News’s normally pro-Trump programming continued this week when the former New Jersey Superior Court judge published an opinion piece pushing back against the president’s repeated claims that the impeachment proceeding is a “hoax.”

 

Napolitano described the proceedings as “deadly serious business based on well-established constitutional norms.” He also made a case for why he believes there is “ample and uncontradicted” evidence for the Senate to vote to remove the president, writing that there are “valid, lawful, constitutional arguments for Trump’s impeachment that he ought to take seriously.”

 

The op-ed appeared to have been first published Wednesday by the Washington Examiner, a conservative news outlet, before it showed up on Fox News’s site early Thursday.

 

“What is required for removal of the president?” Napolitano wrote. “A demonstration of presidential commission of high crimes and misdemeanors, of which in Trump’s case the evidence is ample and uncontradicted.”

 

This is not the first time that Napolitano has pushed for Trump’s impeachment in recent months, nor is his stance all that surprising, given that he has been described as a “staunch libertarian” who “places principles over partisanship, and who is outspoken and critical without resorting to ad hominem attacks.”

 

But the op-ed, which comes just days before Trump’s defense is expected to present its case Saturday, quickly gained traction on social media Thursday as many, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) and Rep. Katherine M. Clark (D-Mass.), shared the piece. By late Thursday, “Judge Napolitano” was a trending term on Twitter with tens of thousands of mentions.

 

“When Fox News’ top legal analyst debunks the rest of Fox News …” Swalwell tweeted. Clark, who is vice chair of the House Democratic caucus, wrote that Napolitano “acknowledges what we already know: the President abused his power & should be removed from office.”

 

In his piece, Napolitano detailed the two charges against Trump — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — and laid out the evidence that, he argues, should support impeachment. Napolitano pointed to internal emails showing that the White House withheld military aid to Ukraine after Trump’s July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, and senior officials defying congressional subpoenas to testify.

 

“The Constitution prescribes the bases for impeachment as treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors,” he wrote. “However, this use of the word ‘crimes’ does not refer to violations of federal criminal statutes. It refers to behavior that is so destructive of the constitutional order that it is the moral equivalent of statutory crimes.”

 

Napolitano also went after unnamed Republican senators, accusing them of reassuring Trump that he will be acquitted.

 

“Whoever may have whispered that into his ear is unworthy of sitting as a juror and has violated the oath of ‘impartial justice’ and fidelity to the Constitution and the law,” he wrote.

Napolitano’s op-ed presents a stark contrast to a majority of Fox News’s impeachment coverage, which in recent days has favored disparagement of Democrats and pro-Trump commentary over airing live footage of the proceedings.

 

“Imagine a movie written and directed by children whose ending you already know, and by the way, it’s 20 hours long and Hungarian with misspelled subtitles,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Wednesday, following the first day of opening arguments for Democrats. “That’s what it’s like.”

 

Later that night, host Sean Hannity, a close Trump ally, adopted a similar take on the day’s events.

 

“Now, if I was a terrible host, I would force you to endure watching the regurgitation, the repetition … the insanity that has gone on all day, America, 24 hours of never-ending babbling, repetitive talking points over what was nothing,” he said.

 

On Thursday, Trump critics cited Napolitano’s arguments and praised the Fox News analyst for being “willing to tell the truth” and remaining “true to his principles.”

 

“The Judge is a courageous man and now he must fight the cabal that wants to keep someone this lawless and reckless in our most sacred public servant position,” tweeted former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

 

A headline on an article from the Palmer Report, a liberal political blog, read, “Judge Napolitano of Fox News just destroyed Donald Trump’s impeachment defense.”

Not everyone, though, was receptive to the op-ed.

 

“I change channels when this idiot shows up,” one person wrote in the comments section of the piece. “He belongs at CNN or a nut house. Same difference.”

 

Another urged the network to find another legal expert, writing, “Nap has been so wrong, so often that I thought Fox finally let him go to pasture.”

 

Trump has not yet publicly addressed the column. Instead, the president tweeted two clips from Hannity’s show Thursday night, during which the host railed against the “Schumer Schiff Sham Show.”

 

Speaking of "legal experts", anyone catch Jay Sekulow's performance yesterday?

 

After one of the Democrat managers mentioned FOI lawsuits (Freedom of Information, commonly referred to as Foya) he went on a rant about "Lawyer lawsuits", obviously mishearing what was said.

 

What made it cringeworthy is that the phrase "lawyer lawsuits" is basically meaningless (and a guy working on Trump's legal team should know this) yet he mentioned the phrase over and over, in what he likely assumed was a scathing rebuke...:rolleyes:

Looks like Igor Fruman, the other Giuliani associate is anticipating the " I hardly know him" from Trump and has released a recording of a meeting with Trump.  A copy of the recording is now in the custody of federal prosecutors in New York's Southern District.

Maher joked about how it won't be long before Donald "barely knows" Jr.

Apparently he's my son. That sounds like a hoax - part of Democrat witch hunt. I barely know this Donald Trump Jr. guy.

I think the point is, Trump always wants to disavow knowledge of anyone who he doesn't see as contributing to his "greatness". It's why you almost never hear him talk about Eric of Tiffany...
