  1. Wait.. they could potentially just DISMISS this? What an absurd joke!

    Senate put it in and broke it off.

    What about the conflicts of interest within trumps legal team

    • You mean how Schiff and his office staff’s co-ordination with the whistleblower regarding the filing, making Schiff a fact witness?

    • @ArgentPure whistleblower had to go to someone, and everyone else was in Trump’s pocket. Your argument is invalid.

      Jacqueline Knauff Trump ,has no shame,,win at all cost, destroy any thing in your way, lives, careers, reputations, lie, steal, deceive,,,,,destroy families,,,,he’s a megamanic,demagogue, sociopath, narcissist…..

  4. Not gonna fly. Especially the thing to prove good intentions when we have #Tre45on on tape multiple times saying and asking for investigations into Biden. 😂

    • @ArgentPure 1. That strongarming was widely approved all around the globe, unlike the quid-pro-quo of Trump, which wasn’t even approved by his own administration, and 2. What corruption?

    • @ArgentPure bot…

      Don’t kid yourself @Ganiscol. Team @POTUS wouldn’t dream of asking for a dismissal. Three years of work have lead up to where we are now. #NothingCanStopWhatsComing

  5. Since when did the accused Donald John Trump get to call the shots in his Trial regarding when/if there will be a Trial, when/if he’ll show up, what/if witnesses and evidence will be produced, how long the Trial will proceed, if at all, and so on. Supreme Court Justice John Roberts is more of a window dressing manikin in Macy’s store window. Unreality Show. Is this the best we get after 254 years of constitutional democracy? Are we still locked into eighteenth century ritual?

    • The ghost of Al Capone would be ambarassed of trump
      for being Putin’s puppet. But might have been impressed by how well another sociopath could make such good use of the media to spread his own dial-reah.

    • @John Watt You actually prove my point. Modern technology but the Accused, modern Benefict Arnold, is exploiting ancient form and formula to weasel his way out of suffering consequences of his very modern high crimes and misdemeanors. It’s not, or shouldn’t be, like the movie ‘Back to the Future’ where POTUS45 can pick and choose.

    • Just like crazy Nancy made the rules in the housr….turncoat

    • @AZ Niteforce AlphaOmega NitefArce. Another anony-mouse keyboard hero ashamed to show their real name, if they have one. Whoever gave you your unoriginal talking points might provide you with a proper name. Congress was open, fair and thorough. POTUS45 and GOP Reps wouldn’t cooperate, scared about revealing the truth. Slave Mitch McConnell took his Master’s directions and committed Perjury by breaking his Sworn Oath about the Trial. This ‘Trial’ is like the KKK in the deep South 50-60 years ago. Proud of that backwards progress?

  6. There’s the Truth, and there’s Trumptalk and never the twain shall meet.

  7. To dismiss the US Constitution and the rule of law?

    • The Supreme Court did not reject the claim of privilege out of hand; it noted, in fact, “the valid need for protection of communications between high Government officials and those who advise and assist them in the performance of their manifold duties” and that “[h]uman experience teaches that those who expect public dissemination of their remarks may well temper candor with a concern for appearances and for their own interests to the detriment of the decisionmaking process.” This is very similar to the logic that the Court had used in establishing an “executive immunity” defense for high office-holders charged with violating citizens’ constitutional rights in the course of performing their duties. The Supreme Court stated: “To read the Article II powers of the president as providing an absolute privilege as against a subpoena essential to enforcement of criminal statutes on no more than a generalized claim of the public interest in confidentiality of nonmilitary and nondiplomatic discussions would upset the constitutional balance of ‘a workable government’ and gravely impair the role of the courts under Article III.” Because Nixon had asserted only a generalized need for confidentiality, the Court held that the larger public interest in obtaining the truth in the context of a criminal prosecution took precedence.

  8. I guess there are not 51 Senators willing to lose their next election.

  9. IMPEACH early and OFTEN!!!

  10. Vote.. Organize unify and show up!! Remember last time🙈🌊🌊🌊

  11. And people wonder why the world no longer trusts America…

    • surely you joke, mein failüre | January 22, 2020 at 11:04 AM | Reply

      @Honest Business Remember how Trumpy did the Ukraine extortion scheme phone call right after he felt Mueller had let him off the hook? Uggh, I shudder to think of all the phone calls he’d be making if Moscow Mitch McTurtle finds a way to exonerate him. Hopefully he tweets it all so that stuff can go into the presidential record.

    • eliotno3 – Sir, I would think fair comment to say we trusted America but not the President, but it is becoming clear that those that surround him are no longer working for America wither  but for the President. Rgds NZ

      @Bob Smith all of them in the rest of the world

    That’s OK the voters can bring forward a motion to dismiss.

  13. A Fish Rots From the Head Down.

  14. Trump said he would like to be in impeachment trial. That’s probably why he immediately went overseas

  15. It’s constantly being said that the Democrats have been out to get the president since he took office. Let’s say that is so. If he conducted himself with HONESTY and INTEGRITY in the office of the Presidency, he would not be facing this impeachment. He needs to take responsibility for his actions. The process is not unfair.

  16. Word from a pathological liar are worthless…let’s hear witnesses, public wants the truth

  17. This senate will violate the oath of office!! Ignore evidence, shun witnesses and continue the criminal conspiracy!

    If the law applies to everyone this way, I’ll be a criminal.

    Why dismiss if hes innocent? Why not prove the demsxwtong and testify himself (trump)….I mean …even O J. Testified lol

  20. “The Worlds Greatest Deliberating Body” is what John Roberts called them! LOL!
    The GOP is nothing but a Cult of Narcissists addicted to power & control & enabling a Malignant Narcissistic Sociopath!! They come in packs!
