Thread: The most useless day of impeachment hearings so far.

  1. #1

    The most useless day of impeachment hearings so far.

    Today we have lawyers cross examining lawyers about their analysis of facts they have no first hand knowledge of.

    Could there be a more textbook definition of political theater?

    That's hilarious.

    Last week, these lawyers were asking so called witnesses what they heard and how did they feel. Now these same lawyers are being asked what they thought about these second/third hand accounts.

    Have none of you ever been in court?

    All of the days have been useless because the transcripts and Trump's public comments made things 100% clear. All these hearings have done is provide more corroboration.

    Could there be a more textbook definition of 1) abuse of power 2) obstruction of congress, and 3) obstruction of justice as articles of impeachment?

    The framers hit a home run when they envisaged such a corrupt President as Trump could one day come to pass.

    I hear MacDonald's newest offering is the McNothing Burger to commemorate the failed impeachment attempt.

    That's sounds like a healthy option.

    Apparently they are trying to tap into the Democrat market as they have been eating crow and sucking lemons for a while so this could be a good change for their meal choices.

    I thought his last days were leading up to the Russian collusion witch hunt? I guess you were wrong about that.

    He will be impeached but not removed the only way his presidency ends is if he loses the election.

    You really think he is going to be impeached?

    Would bet your parents house on that?

    Perhaps impeachment is an Impossible Burger.

    he is clearly guilty and even you know it, but your partisan prejudice outweighs any notion of appropriate jurisprudence. He will be impeached, but the Repugs in Congress will not remove him because they don't care about democracy or the Constitution either.... only clinging to power

    It looks like the Dummycrats will vote to impeach, but it will never get past the Senate since 20 Republicans have to go along with it.
    So basically its just impeachment on paper, which means nothing since Trump wont be removed before 2020.

    If anything this might hurt the Dummycrats because history shows the country tends to unite with a President if they feel he's been unfairly impeached

    'dummycats'
    And it only took you 2 years of Trump support to come up with that one.

    At least Nixon wasn't a total moron, 'cuz his supporters still had something to back him.

    The IG report shredded every claim by Trump, the Ukraine conspiracy, the FBI conspiracy, the deep state conspiracy....
    The repug defense was a shambles, they were left admitting that Trump made up the Ukraine conspiracy.

    The only thing Trump has going for him now is Fox, which will repeat Trump's lies about the report Barr commissioned.

    Happy impeachment day!

    Once, maybe.

    Did the country feel Clinton was unfairly impeached? He even admitted he lied. Did you feel he was unfairly impeached? I don't think any other prez met your above criteria so he is the only possibility.

    Not many examples to support your assertion.

    So how will the senate repugs argue that trump did not obstruct Congress which is one of the articles of impeachment? He ignored all subpoenas and did not allow any of his people to testify? Even if the Dems were incorrect in their assertion of wrongdoing in Ukraine, it doesn't change that he did not comply with requests that were legal and obstructed the investigation by failing to do so.

    I think this will be their defense. Using the courts is not obstruction.

    Turley: Congress Commits An 'Abuse Of Power' If It Calls Going To Courts Obstruction

    Now it's going to be obstruction and abuse of power. Neither of which have any weight. What happened to Russian Collusion, bribery, and most important quid pro quo?
    Those three were was all this was supposed to be based on.

    The House Democrats have not challenged any Executive "rejections' therefore the charge of obstruction is without merit. The fact that the House "requested" or even subpoenaed evidence does not mean that the Executive has to comply without seeking a judicial opinion of the Court. This is a laughable amateur hour all around.

    So you are saying that Congress does not have the power of oversight? It is in the constitution, not something the courts need to decide.
