Too bad that what trump did was so much worse than telling a lie about having sex.
So much worse than Nixon and he was forced to resign.
I am so glad you have such confidence in this process because when the funds stop coming because a senator supports trump they will start playing a different tune.

Nancy Pelosi may hold an impeachment vote and NOT send it to the Senate, if one of the articles passes. She's toying with that idea.
Mr. Trump will have to seek re-election as an "Impeached" President.
Democrats will use that in their election/re-election ads.
The whistleblower can be called in to explain how, by his own admission, he had no knowledge of what Trump said.
Schiff, Sept. 26: It reads like a classic organized crime shakedown. Shorn of its rambling character and in not so many words, this is the essence of what the president communicates. We’ve been very good to your country, very good. No other country has done as much as we have. But you know what? I don’t see much reciprocity here. I hear what you want. I have a favor I want from you though. And I’m going to say this only seven times so you better listen good. I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand. Lots of it. On this and on that. I’m going to put you in touch with people, not just any people, I am going to put you in touch with the attorney general of the United States, my Attorney General Bill Barr. He’s got the whole weight of the American law enforcement behind him. And I’m going to put you in touch with Rudy. You’re going to love him. Trust me. You know what I’m asking. And so I’m only going to say this a few more times. In a few more ways. And by the way, don’t call me again. I’ll call you when you’ve done what I asked.
This is in sum and character what the president was trying to communicate with the president of Ukraine. It would be funny if it wasn’t such a graphic betrayal of the president’s oath of office. But as it does represent a real betrayal, there’s nothing the president says here that is in America’s interest after all.
Just fighting fire with Fire. And why not considering the circumstances?

So, you and others, who have been crying and scratching the the House’s impeachment is purely partisan, are happy for the Senate to act in a totally partisan manner?
Should they, you know, at least pretend to follow the Constitution?
