    Semper Fi Mr President! After all the money spent on this, the guilty
    parties (democrats) should be held liable for all the tax payers money
    they spent. Over three million dollars, plus all the legal expenses.
    This debacle is one of the most ridiculous things the deep state has
    pulled. It just keeps getting better for Mr. Trump. Where is HUNTER? LOL
    The real trials will begin soon...Bwaha ha ha ha! [Jeffery Epstein

    I'm not American but how can someone say that. In 1998 u impeached a president for lying under oath during a deposition. I'm sorry but if we can't hold people accountable for their actions and we continue letting them get away with it that is how world war II Started. Or are we forgetting that. We the rest of the world think America has become a joke and instead of u's actually looking at the evidence u are just talking. It was a quick pro quo. Yes he didn't specifically say it but do u really think he would have said it on a pwublic line knowing everyone could hear him. He said we should read the transcript we did and it was still proof he said we should read the Muller report we did, do u know what we found out that ur president is hiding something big. And u his supporters don't seem to realize it he has been bankrupt 4 times, he seems to be impeding every investigation. If someone is as innocent as they say they are why did he impede all the investigations. Why was it that when the Muller committee was set up he said it was the end of his presidency why is it that Muller said he didn't exonerate him but couldn't bring charges against the president. What I'm trying to say is that a leader is meant to lead. He should be able to take what ever is thrown at them and not throw tantrums.do u guys really think the Democrats are going to put out all their cards now I can get u there are more incriminating witnesses than we have already seen.

    IMO all Senators, Chief Justice Roberts & Law Enforcement must demand to hear Evidence about 1 or 2 staff members of Schiff that had financial links to #Ukraine Gas Companies & their #Oligarchs, including #Burisma , as reported in the Media, these Schiff staff members links to #Burisma as well as contacts with the #whistleblower before he/she filed his/her complain are extremely important to understand the whole scam, many Legal Experts agree these conflicts of interests at Schiff office are at the center of any credible Investigation & Congress Vote.

    This is a sacred yet regrettable moment in the history of the United States of America. This video chronicles the start of the Impeachment Senate Trial. What you are witnessing is a rare moment in American History. I would caution all to remember one of the pillars and foundation of our legal system "innocent until proven guilty". The burden of proof (of guilt) lies with the prosecution (The Managers from the House of Representatives). The House of Representatives is given the responsibility to build the case against the President and to generate specific Articles of Impeachment. Each Article must meet the rigors set by the US Constitution as acts of Impeachment ("Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors"
    ). Unfortunately the term "Crimes and Misdemeanors" (in the language and understanding of the Founding Fathers) is misunderstood in modern terms. That will be key in this trial.
    The President will be allowed to defend himself. The Chief Justice will preside over the Trial, the members of the Senate will be the Jury.
    Unfortunately, the leadership of the House of Representatives, in my opinion, have mismanaged this process. They started the process on a false premise. They distorted the process with political bias. They corrupted the legal process by unjustly controlling: who was to be called as witnesses; what was to be said by witnesses; how the witnesses were to be questioned; properly allowing the defense to cross examine hostile witnesses. In a word due and speedy process was blatantly denied to the defendant. The way that Pelosi, Schiff, Adler and company have managed things is very disturbing. In a lessor court of law half of these misdeeds would not be tolerated. These offenders, in my opinion, are guilty of malpractice and the public trust. (That, by the way, is part of the intent of impeaching someone in civil office.)
    Impeachment is an unfortunate business. It must be done through the spirit of the Rule of Law as the Founding Fathers intended it. The Democratic Influence, in the House, has distorted that spirit in a shameful way. But I digress.
    Please, keep an open mind. Keep in mind the Spirit of the Rule of Law. What happens during these trial proceedings will affect this President and all other Presidents to follow. Put the shoe on the other foot. This is setting a dangerous precedent.
    I have great faith in the Majority Leader of the Senate and the Chief Justice. I believe these proceedings will be done in a legally professional manner. Personally, I don't think any of the Articles of Impeachment meet the threshold of Impeachment. I believe the Trial will establish that.
    I hope and pray that the Law will be administered in a fair and just manner.
    I hope that blatant politics, bias, and blind hatred will be kept out of the chamber.
    I hope that you will reserve judgement until the trial is over.
    I hope all the Jurors will do the same. (You would hope that a Jury assigned to sit in judgement in your trial would be fair and make their decision at the end. The presiding justice would instruct them to do just that.)
    I hope you understand that basic principle of our Justice System. What you are witnessing is a dangerous challenge to the Constitution of the United States...

  • MadJayhawk

    Keep in mind that this is not a real trial. Trial procedures do not apply. This is a political event. Democrats want this to last until November. They want to introduce more 'evidence'. If they call one witness they should call all of them. Do they really want to do that? They want to make Republicans look bad as possible. Parnas has given 6-7 different answers to the same questions. He has an agenda and is a criminal. Most of the Senate, including all the saintly Democrats, have made up their minds.

    • MadJayhawk
      MadJayhawk Month ago

      It was a Democrat impeachment not an impeachment by the House of Representative. Now they complain about witnesses when they had 17 of the them in the biased hearings they held in the basement of the Senate. Trump didn't have one witness in that stupid political display. Totally biased. Corrupt. They know they are going to lose. Now they will lose in a historic landslide. What Pelosi did was petty, childish, nasty and unbecoming to a member of the House of Representatives. She should resign.

    How can you have DEM/REP who "SWARE" they can be "impartial" with all the hate & anger they stirred up ? How can the members of the body who are running for The Presidential Office be "FAIR & UN-PARTIAL" ? This is a 'trial', but it's not a fair one, more of a 'WITCH HUNT', or a political BEAT DOWN WITH THE DEMOCRATS SMIRKING BEHIND THEIR HANDS. THIS IS B.S. and they know it.

      @shadowxxrt Democrats were impartial? Why didn't 4 Democrats running for President recuse themselves then? They were going to be impartial? Every Democrat came out for impeachment the day the president was sworn in. They were impartial?

    • Thomas Jackson
      Thomas Jackson Month ago

      @MadJayhawk Trump has been a vile, divisive, criminal and liar since before he took office. The desire to remove him from office from the beginning was based upon his ties to Russian intelligence, who helped him get elected by illegally flooding social media with literally millions of lies.

      Trump coordinated this campaign of smears and lies with Russian intelligence, and all of that activity was illegal. He corruptly gained the office. He acted corruptly while he was in in it, and he is an illegitimate president.

      It is justified to resist his government legally, politically and by direct action to take him out of office.
      The fact that the Republican party has been thoroughly corrupted by Trump's schemes to funnel Russian mob money to the Republican Party will be public knowledge soon.

      The economy is doing great, but none of that is due to Trump's efforts. Ten thousand people are retiring every day, and this is the reason for all of Trump's "record numbers." He had nothing to do with it at all. We are in the 10th year of a recovery, and the economy created more jobs in the last three years of Obama's presidency than it did in Trump's first three years. The tax cuts are stifling growth, not encouraging it.

      Trump lies about his accomplishments, touting things that didn't happen, taking credit for things he didn't do, and exaggerating in every way. He's a discredited liar who just got lucky.

      Trump lies when he says that our country was in decline during Obama's presidency. Trump lies when he says he reversed policies. Trump lies when he says that he "rebuilt" our military, and he lies when he says our foreign policy outlook is stronger.

      The overwhelming majority of the people in this country aren't fooled, and the Republicans who shielded Trump's criminal behavior will lose their elections.

      Trump will be defeated by Bernie Sanders.

    I was having a flashback on the Michael Cohen testimony


    Michael Cohen has message for Trump
    When closing his public testimony to Congress, President Donald Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen sent a harsh message to Trump, and a warning to his supporters. #CNN #News

    while watching the senators being sworn in for the impeachment trial, and I superimposed the scene from "Spartacus" in my mind, with them all standing up to say " I am Michael Cohen"

  • J P

    When you leave out the emotional rhetoric and look at the limited evidence available, logic dictates he's guilty of these charges. Whether he should be punished is up to the Senate. Although a lot of legal terminology is being tossed around this is not a criminal trial. This is a political trial. Right now Trump's team controls the Senate. His team will acquit him. They were careful to not disclose evidence that would have swayed public opinion. The public controls who is elected next term. This is American Democracy... might makes right.

The evidence proves he did something WE HAVE NO FUCKING LAWS AGAINST. They’re in turn using him doing something not illegal as abuse of power.

    It's so disrespectful to make people put their hand on the Bible. It pushes Christianity. The peer pressure to conform. There is supposed to be separation of church and state but I see that will never happen. Just like in the middle East where Islam is the state religion, Christianity is the state religion in America. The reason for separation of church and state is that it favors no religion or pushes no religion on others. Buddhists, Hindus and nontheists are not respected. Christian's really have no respect for others as pushing their religion reveals.

Or maybe you can't read and had someone type for you. The truth is he did not commit an impeachable offense. You claim what you say is not opinion when it clearly is. Follow the facts read the actual transcript before you start claiming something that you know nothing about.
