    That is grossly unfair to all the dedicated Clowns who at least attempt
    to be funny and original.Not so with the Democrat Clowns.Very unoriginal
    and unfunny and just plain boring.
    I bet the - Joker - { 2019 } would feel cheated.

    The bolded is where you are wrong. The subject was whether Justice Roberts can dismiss the Impeachment for Lack of Standing. Go back and re-read it if you must. I don't really give a ****.

    And I already explained why she did not commit perjury or lie under oath, so I'm not going to bother repeating my explanation on that point again. But if you want to pursue perjury allegations AFTER you guys had to defend Trump against allegations of witness intimidation, you go for it.

    That's why you were able to do it against Obama despite all the bitching and moaning regarding his tan suit, right?

    And they did the job so well that they got more Yes votes than any previous Impeachment Presidency all while simultaneously passing the USMCA (after negotiating it more in their favor) and a massive drug pricing bill.

    However MSNBC this afternoon hosted by former Republican
    { worked in the Bush White House } Nicolle Wallace,about as viral a Trump
    hater as humanly possible had this to add.
    That The American People don't like to be told there is no need
    for witnesses.Which is what Trump is demanding of his GOP.
    That the voters will never vote for that kind of thing.
    That the Voters are not stupid !
    Trump also said he was Spied on.Which he was.
    That the Press is The Enemy of the People.Which it is.
    That he had every right to Fire James Comey.
    That he has an Article 2 right do a lot of what he does.

    Then produce the docs and witnesses and make that argument....that article 2 allows him to shakedown allies to get investigations announced on his rivals using tax payer money as the payment.

    That should have been done in the House Impeachment Trial and
    also Impeachment Inquiry.Gathering all yer duckies in a row like at a
    Carnival stand.The Senate Trial is pertaining to what the Articles of Impeachment
    entail and what the House used to establish an Impeachment guilty verdict.
    The entire Country knows what silliness Pelosi stated.That any Impeachment
    Must be Impartial and also serious.Her House was Not serious.Let alone
    fair.Now the Dems are screeching to be fair and above board.Making demands.
    When they did the opposite in their House Impeachment.Denying flat out any
    Demands from the Republicans.
    Screw Schumer and his Devils demands.

    The house was the indictment. The senate is the trial. Trials always have more evidence than the indictment.

    Trials also allow Due Process.The 9/11 Terrorists were afforded more due Process
    than this duly-elected President.Who is a Defendant.Trials in the U.S.
    are based around fairness for a Defendant.Not for Prosecutors or Witnesses'.
    You are buying into the un-American ways of this Unamerican Democrat Party.

    ...what the...

    I know trump is made that hyperbolic statement because he is a dumb *********ker...why are you repeating it?

    Most of the attackers died in the attack. the rest were tortured and imprisoned indefinitely.

    Trump has spent the last three months golfing at his own private golf resorts while dozens of elected Republicans bent over sideways coming up with at least 27 different defenses for his conduct.

    The average number of witnesses in all the previous instances of a Senate impeachment trial was 32.

    Well the jury is also the judge, so that changes things some. Trump should demand they have witnesses so he can clear his good name. Right?

    No, my friend. This is about holding the fort and not bending over and grabbing the ankles for the Democrats.

    Well he hasn't been convicted of anything, yet the right has already acquited him, irregardless of the evidence.

    Meh, why should Trump have to prove his innocence? That is not how it works. Dems said the evidence is overwhelming.....really? Then why ask for more witnesses?
