  1. Can’t wait to see how the republicans fill their 24 hours with no evidence, no witnesses, and no defense other than to pull the fire alarm when things aren’t going their way.

  2. A strait jacket is what the orange peach needs

  3. The GOP are all guilty as sin and they know it.
    Hence why Moscov Mitch Mc-Con-nell is trying to rather sweep this under the rug than prove Trump “innocent” after a fair and thorough trial.

  4. The people are watching, the GOP will get their comeuppance, mark my word.

    DjT / Rupublican campaign goal for November 3, 2020:
    persuade the majority of voters to stay home and ‘throw the fight’ so that they can continue ‘going into the tank’ for their own and putin’s benefit.

    Voters must consider that the choice is between providing approval of DjT’s excesses and his nascent dictatorship with our silence and inaction as “Rupublicans” want
    using the power of the Constitution to voice our disapproval through a process agreeing on articles of impeachment (if not conviction)
    as well as
    voting him and his servile enablers out of office on November 3, 2020.

    The Constitution, our Republic’s foundational document made relevant only by the will of the American people and their elected representatives.

  7. The chief justice needs to stop what McConnell is clearly doing. He’s gonna bote the witnesses to death and probably crank the heat up in the room and hold 12 + hour sessions. That sounds like jailhouse interrogation tactics

    I’m confused, on one hand, McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Collins kept saying that it is a Dem’s partisan impeachment while GOP saying/doing things more partisan than Dems; On the other hand, GOP said that Dems will take serious damage from the impeachment but McConnell planned it as short as possible, Is he the secret democratic party’s helper to help Dems to avoid the possible big damage to the Democrat party in the future? What they said/did doesn’t hold water.

    No full, fair and complete impeachment trial is the completion of Donald J. Trump’s lifelong subversion of everything to do with decensy, morality, ethics, honesty, rightiousness, rule of law.
    The icing on the cake would be if this gangster were to be reelected. If so, the expression ‘like man, like state’ will have met its true meaning.
    America is on the verge of civil war.

    The Republican Party has trashed the American Constitution, they have spat in the eyes of the founding fathers.

  11. We have 24/7 news and a world press. Moscow Mitch’s obstruction won’t hide the sound bites or bury the truth.

    We the People do have a responsibility and a say in this: We must raise the Voice of the People NOW. We make our Voice relentless by sheer number when we ask our friends and families to do the same. We must convey our stance on impeachment and a fair Senate Hearing-complete with witnesses and document evidence IN THE FULL VIEW AND HEARING OF THE PEOPLE!
    We can call the offices of our reps, along with our, “reps,” to convey our stance. US Senate 202-225-3121. US House 202-224-3121, main DC numbers. We can also use the direct DC numbers or the numbers of our reps’ home state offices.

  13. A evil shameful situation! Hiding all evidence from the American people! Sick! Just plain sick!

  14. I wish this was all a joke…..oh yeah McConnell has just made this hearing just that! What.a bunch of piggies! Your disrespecting every single American citizen!!

    Hearing Moscow Mitch’s opening statement made me sick to my stomach. The stark reality of what Moscow Mitch argued made me fearful of where he is taking our nation…

    Block all evidence ? Why bother calling it a trial ? Doesn’t the judge ha as to approve the process ?

  17. Guilty as SIN!!!!

  18. 1 Woe to those who devise iniquity and plot evil on their beds! At morning’s light they accomplish it because the power is in their hands. Micah 2:1. The Lord is waiting for McConnell.

  19. It’s rumored bluthmenal single handily won the veitnam war for his masters
