So... on that note. I decided to check, and it doesn't really look like very many people have ever been executed for treason in the USA's history. (And most of them were arguable cases.)

So maybe we won't have a mass hanging.

Some people might get tried for lesser crimes. Hopefully we'll really send them to prison though!!!

Lots of things happening that don't follow precedent. On the negative side, the secret impeachment proceedings, for one.

These people aren't guilty of treason, they're guilty of sedition.

'Secret impeachment proceedings'

That's BS and you ought to know it. The impeachment inquiry is a fact-finding endeavor. It's not a trial. It's not even meant to be public until after the initial investigation has concluded. The exact same thing happened in the Clinton impeachment; closed-door impeachment inquiry hearings followed by public impeachment proceeding hearings followed by impeachment.

Stop pretending that this is some special circumstance that's never happened.

Just curious, were democrats kicked out of the "interrogations" and not allowed to review transcripts?

The bulk of what was being determined in Clinton's case was all public knowledge. Everyone knew the name of Clinton's accuser. They knew the narrative of what had happened. (And most people really didn't want to know all the details about where or how Clinton managed to misplace his pants.)

The only question was whether the alleged misconduct did indeed happen.

Not what happened. Only if.


The problem here is that the information being presented behind those closed doors is important the public for reasons that go beyond the mere question of impeachment.

It's both stuff the public WANTS to know, and stuff the public FEELS IT OUGHT to be allowed to know.

Here two things have to be determined:

1 - Do the alleged events actually constitute a high crime or misdemeanor? (Are they even criminal, or even inappropriate actions in the first place?)

2 - Did the alleged events happen.


Schiff isn't letting the public weigh in and say whether it thinks Trump's actions deserve reprimand or not.

It's didn't happen to Democrats in the '90's and it's not happening to Republicans now.

Why is the house intelligence committee heading up this "impeachment inquiry" and not the judiciary committee who has done every prior impeachment?

There are six committees involved in the inquiry: Financial Services, the Judiciary, Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, Oversight and Reform, and Ways and Means.

Yet the intelligence committee is the one holding the "depositions" or whatever. The judiciary has always done that. It's their turf.

They're all holding hearings and speaking to witnesses. You're mostly hearing from intelligence because that's where most of the witnesses are. Intelligence officials who believe what the president did during his call with Ukraine was wrong. The House committees are investigating if it was wrong or not.

That's funny, we have a transcript of the call.
