Good prep by McConnell.
If a House vote ever actually happens, the Senate can be prepared to quickly quash the partisan nonsense.

Ah....the old "according to a person familiar" quote. Why does that pop up so often in these hilarious RRRREEEEEEEE posts?


Do you disbelieve the report?


The question is why should we believe it? Almost every time 'anonymous source' is used by the MSM it turns out to be fake news.

Th funny yet horribly sad part is that you believe it.

Just like you believed the Mueller report was going to be the "THING" that took Trump down.



I thought the SC Report would outline the facts and it did.

Weird...do you think you are telepathic? How would you know what I thought?

Lots of loonies in Trump world. Listen to Rudy lately?

The SC report stated unequivocally that nobody colluded with Russia. And they weaseled out of offering an opinion on obstruction.


Except it didn't.



Really.

Then please point out for us in the Mueller investigation where it was found that Trump colluded with Russia.

Because Bob Mueller disagrees with you...





The SC report found multiple people worked with Russia in there interference campaign to help Trump. It did not find sufficient evidence that they did so "wittingly".

It outlined almost a dozen instances where Trump obstructed justice and the gathering of evidence.

And it made it clear that DOJ policy forbid DOJ from pursuing any charges against the President, leaving it to congress.

So whether "Trump himself" colluded with Russia was never answered.
Trump repeatedly obstructed that investigation, refused to be interviewed and refused to cooperate.
He could not be charged with that obstruction and he could not be compelled to cooperate according to DOJ policy.

You can spin that however you like, but the SC Report in no way exonerated the President.

The rules are different in impeachment proceedings.

It is a trial and once it begins, it can not be quickly shut down.

It will likely run 2-5 weeks.

The Senate GOP can take steps to try and shut it down early, but if it is mid presentation of evidence on the articles of impeachment and before White House Lawyers can respond it will do more damage to GOP and the President than good.

A succinct summary of proceedings here:

" McConnell preps Senate for impeachment trial "


Hmm... How do you prep for a Senate Impeachment Trial ? Look at Presented " REAL " Evidence from the House Request , or just Say it SEVEN TIMES and just " Wing " it . ?


They'll do it the night of thanksgiving when most peo pl le aren't there to vote like they usually do.

Do you the difference between not finding evidence of collusion
vs.
Declaring that there was no Collusion?

More so in a document that painstakingly outlines how they were obstructed from obtaining evidence?

Insufficient evidence is not the same as a determination of innocence.

No doubt the SC report concluded that they did not find evidence of "witting" collusion, that is not the same as saying there was no collusion.

With more partisan nonsense?

No. McConnell will have a painfully perfect trial, as Pelosi should have done.

And then, Mr. Trump will be ... exonerated, finally.

The President didn't need to be "exonerated".

Please learn what the word means before using it again.

So again....

Mueller found no evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia and stated so in his report.

He pussied out and made no decision on obstruction of justice, the AG made the call for him and he agreed with the decision that nothing was done that rose to the level of a criminal act.

Facts... they're fun!

You accuse me of spin but your entire post is nothing but.

Think harder.

So, yes, politicians.

It is Not Legitimate Until a FULL HOUSE Vote for Impeachment . What the Dems are doing Now is Looking for Evidence of a Non Crime in the Mean Time .

That claim is incorrect. Would you like an official Congressional source that will prove otherwise, or are you good with your belief?
