Can we move it to the mud-pit? I have some choice words for a few.

Seems to me..
All he would need to do, is give a BS reason for holding the funds, that does not involve Biden.
Even if everyone will know it's BS, you can't prove his intent.
Unless it's clear as day in the transcript.

Nothing illegal, eh?

Using his position as, at the time, the sitting Vice-president of the United States to get a prosecutor, who was investigating his son for corruption, fired in the Ukraine isn't illegal... In what world?

Even were it not illegal...it certainly demonstrates a remarkable lack of ethics. Of course, this is Biden, whose grasp of ethics is somewhat lacking.

Too bad it wasn't the same thing. I know nuances are complicated.

No, I posted it here because I want people to be civil. If I wanted it in the mud-pit I would have posted it there. This is a serious matter that deserves serious discussion, not flaming.

Back on topic:


Section 4 of Article Two of the United States Constitution: "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."


If these allegations are true, what does using the power of your position to influence others constitute as?

Add in withholding financial aid and to me it looks like Bribery.

If this is true, and the House impeaches, I think the president will be tried in the Senate on the charges of Bribery, specifically.

Someone should start a thread about that. That's not this one.

Impeaching DJT would be one of the biggest mistakes the Dem party has ever made. I say go ahead Dems, impeach away. If anyone’s thinks the current divide in the country is bad now, start impeachment and see what happens. I think it would be one of the biggest fiascos in our country’s history. I believe a large majority of Dems think that if they could just get rid of Trump everything would be fine and dandy. I personally don’t think it would play out like that at all and feel they would be doing more damage than good to their party. It’s flat out pathetic now and they want to continue playing chicken chit games? Good luck with that.

Another major problem for them now is they don’t have a candidate worth two bits that American’s would get behind come 2020. If your going to fire someone you may want to have a better replacement waiting to fill that void, otherwise, it’s kind of all for not and you’re going to look even more foolish and lame than you do now, if that’s possible.

That has everything to do with the story we are discussing! Don't tell me what to do either...

But there was no chance of Hunter going to jail.. The investigation which was already scurbbed was into the oligarch who owned the gas company. It was not investigating Hunter Biden. It never was. This is all barking up a tree that has nothing in it.

Trump just announced that tomorrow, the full unredacted, declassified transcript of the call will be released.

Whatever is in that whistler blower report must be pretty damning and incriminating for Trump to be tripping all over himself like he's doing with this ordeal.




“Why is it always the United States that’s paying? I made that loud and clear. I told that the Mick Mulvaney, I told to a lot of people,” the president continued. “I told it to a lot of different people. I told it to Mike, two Mikes. I it told to Steve. I keep asking Wilbur Ross.”


Trump ranted on: “I said, hold it up, let’s get other people to pay, and then everybody called me, ‘Oh please, can we pay?’ — and they said — and there was never any quid pro quo, the letter was beautiful, it was a perfect letter, unlike Biden.”

I love watching him try to swim upstream. Someone get him a pair of those blow up floaties for his arms. QUICK!

He can't change any wording because there's dozens of people involved 😎
