    You, like Tea and rogue, are never going to see the many crimes of Trump and his administration, seer, not because they aren't in plain view for you to see, but because you refuse to see them. There are none so blind.......
    And stop complaining about first hand witnesses, first hand witnesses, for one thing, are not necessary, and for another, the only reason there have not been first hand witnesses to this point is because the criminal subject himself in this case has the power to prevent, and has prevented, the first hand witnesses from testifying. That in itself should tell you something. It's called obstruction!

        That was actually a pretty good riposte. There's hope for you yet.

          3 million is less than 1% of the population Jimmy. If you met 13 million, that’s a little less than 4%. Not really a great turnout.

            Jim, the impeachment isn't wearing any clothes. Your emperor is buck naked. We have no idea who you're looking at.

              The naked emperor is Trump, not the impeachment, and personally, I think that you do have an idea what we're looking at, but can never get yourselves to admit to it. Party over country!

                Yeah, and Mueller was gonna prove collusion... No, obstruction... No, it's, it's - we don't need no stinkin' charges, we have a secondhand 'whistleblower' you don't need to hear testimony from because we have hearsay!!

                      It's truly heart-warming to see Trump supporters presenting the party-line talking points with such blind loyalty. The problem for them is that the "secondhand 'whistleblower'" account has been substantiated. Virtually everything the whistleblower reported has been confirmed by those in the loop or present at the events in question.

                        And tell me Tass exactly what was confirmed? Be specific please.

                          That Trump was fixated on Biden, bringing him up over and over something like eight times (oops. He was only brought up once, toward the end of the call and almost as an afterthought)

                          That Trump told them to dig up dirt on Biden if they wanted to get any aid (oops. He never asked them to dig up dirt and never put any conditions on aid as proved by the transcript and the fact that the Ukrainians never even opened up an investigation much less dug up dirt and still got their aid).

                          That Trump concluded the call by telling Zelensky could not call back until he had kowtowed to Trump’s demands. (oops, again never happened. Not. Even. Close. The call ended with Trump congratulating Zelensky on his election).

                          Um, let me get back to you.

                          I'm always still in trouble again

                              Actually Trump did commit crimes, but you are correct, Congress determines whether or not the President has abused his powers whether those abuses are crimes codified by law or not.

                                You're suggesting that Congress can impeach the president and remove him from office even if he never actually committed a crime.

                                That's insane, and it's directly contrary to a plain reading of the Constitution.
