    Of course. Unfortunately for the USA public, the Republican Senate will not allow all the evidence to be presented, nor is Trump willing to testify.

    Interesting. So the 17 witnesses the House brought to testify against Trump won't be adjudicated in the next 3 days?

    Remember when republicans were claiming once they voted on impeachment the WH would cooperate? Lol they won’t even cooperate with the trial. They haven’t stood by one argument yet, because none of them are good faith arguments. It’s just BS for their supporters to argue for a day, then it’ll be on to something else.

    All the evidence the house inquiry brought with the articles of impeachment are available to be adjudicated.

    Wtf does Biden have to do with what Trump did. The whistle blower, as long as he can be protected. Schiff is the one prosecuting.

    This dog and pony show started because Trump asked the new president of Ukraine to look at corruption, as that was the platform he ran on. The Bidens were at the focus of an a initial investigation of corruption with the prior administration until Biden threatened a quid pro quo in order to stop the investigation of the company his son was chair of.

    Wistleblower have protections. Their identity is not one of those protections.

    And Schiff should recuse himself since he has explicitly shown a bias and political vitriol. He has also made accusations regarding Trump, not under oath. He should be made accountable for his actions, similar to the wistleblower.

    Trump did not even say the word corruption.

    We are allowing presumptions based upon Sondland's testimony continuing to come up. I think we could safely presume he meant corruption while talking with the Ukrainian president.

    After the first phone call with Ukraine, the White House read out of the call said that Trump and Zelensky discussed corruption. There was zero reference to corruption or anything related to such in the memorandum of that phone call, released months later.

    The first time that Trump ever referenced or mentioned corruption was after the whistleblower complaint became public.

    The notion that Trump discussed or even cared about corruption is a cover up.

    Your 1st paragraph is completely untrue. As far as Schiff, tough, deal with it.

    "Holding the fort" = suppression of that which puts it under threat, the truth.

    1st paragraph is absolutely true and as far as additional witnesses, tough, deal with it.

    And in Sondland's 1st testimony, he claimed that the Ukrainian aid was tied to a public release that he would restart the investigation into Burishma to which he later changed his deposition that he presumed the aid was tied and was NEVER told it was.

    Must I remind you that during Mueller investigation, Trump has fully cooperated with Mueller, allowed his people to be deposed and sent in millions of documents, in effect feeding the investigation for years. And what did he get for it?

    Nope. Not again.

    I don't give a flying fuq about Mueller. I am talking about this 'Trial.'

    And Trump has done everything legally here. The house could absolutely have challenged people not adhering to subpoenas. They chose NOT to take legal action to have the subpoenas honored. That is an absolute fact!

    And what has that to do with what is obvious suppression of the truth by the Senate?

    Baloney, you just put your fingers in your ears when they made their complaints. They repeated those complaints yesterday at the hearing.

    Haven't paid attention to the GOP side I see. Just off the top of my head from watching some of the proceedings the GOP complained that nearly all requests for witnesses were rejected. The GOP was only allowed to ask questions allowed by Schiff, Schiff told witnesses not to answer certain questions asked by the GOP. Schiff constantly interfered when the GOP asked questions he didn't like. Man, the MSM propaganda machine is sure making it hard to find the videos of those complaints. Since you aren't paying me to search for them you'll have to settle for this link.

    Great. Still incredibly damaging to Trump.

    Now wouldn't you like to hear from someone who would have been explicitly told that information?

    Cooperating partially with one investigation does not mean that you get a free pass on cooperating with another investigation.
