Democrats reportedly selected Norm Eisen on Tuesday to lead the questioning of witnesses, not Barry Berke as was expected. Eisen is a co-founder of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) and served in the Obama administration before joining the Brookings Institution. He is also a frequent CNN commentator.
The Democrats’ witness list also raises questions about potential bias against the president, as two out of the three witnesses they called are, in additional to being constitutional lawyers, Democratic donors. Pamela Karlan has donated over $10,000 to numerous Democratic candidates, such as Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Doug Jones, while Michael Gerhardt donated $1000 to Barack Obama in 2007.
The New York Times describes Karlan as a “legal leader to progressive causes,” pointing out that she is on the board of the “left-leaning” American Constitution Society and that she signed a letter in 2016 from constitutional law scholars expressing “concerns” about Trump’s rhetoric. Gerhardt, meanwhile, worked on Al Gore’s Senate campaign and helped with Bill Clinton’s transition team.(RELATED: White House Declines House Judiciary Impeachment Hearing Invitation)

She was giving an interview saying that Trump needs to be impeached a few weeks after he got in.
As were the other two lawyers...lol
When they weren't commentators on CNN or NBC.
I kid you not... you should see the background on those "experts".
Turley had it right.

Looking at the words of the President... he asked for an investigation "because if it is true it would be horrible". I think we all can agree that if Biden did favors to make his son a multi-millionaire that would be horrible. The interesting thing that no ones actually brings up is that Trump didn't randomly go to Ukraine to look for dirt, or pay someone to create fake dirt using foreign bad actors, he only went to Ukraine because that is where it all went down with Biden's son. Whether it was a company in America of overseas it would be bad either way, but because it was overseas the left is suggesting it is off limits, and with that I disagree 100%.
If it is nothing then no harm no fowl, if not then we should know. Its not like Trump was asking for a creation of a dossier. just investigation into something that doesn't smell very good.

It all comes down to "intent".
How can the dems prove "intent".
In other words.
