      You mean getting to call witnesses, like the republicans did in the House? Good. Because that is not what McConnell says he’ll do.

  3. USA : Why wouldn’t a innocent man send his lawyers to clear his name?

    GOP : Hunter Biden blah blah blah

      Either they are going to uphold an honor to the country or lie for a mad man. The folks in the White House know he is mad and a con.

    • The dems are the enemy vote trump2020

      @Black Flowers why should I vote for trump? And why is cohen in jail? And why are so many staff and secretaries of state and attorney general’s comming and going? Attorney general sessions, attorney general Rosenstein, attorney general barr? Answer me that, but definately tell me why to vote for trump?

    • I mean, it’s his job to ask.

  5. There’s nothing “fair” about a justice system that lets the rich buy an outcome.

    • Moscow SYN4456, Biden running for President doesn’t shield him from his crimes.

    • @bricology You to need to hurry up and turn on Laura Ingraham, Rudy’s on talking about this so-called fake article you’re talking about, looks like the Dems are going down!

    • @SuperNicaChica …….I understand you are young…..I just know….not by look. But….by your comments. Cuz I once thought same way ….. Till I really started to research! I …unlike you ( lol) knew nothing about politics at all. I still don’t…..but what I do is not just believe one person’s word, one sides word, anyone’s stance or word, etc. Not….untill I research, cross reference, check facts, etc! Too many lies going about ……this is really sad!

  6. Lindsey Graham: Don’t bother me with facts; I have already made up mind.

  7. I find it hard to believe that Schumer said he hasn’t made up his mind yet

    • I agree. It’s pretty obvious that Trump is guilty. But I guess he wants to give the air of “fairness”, because otherwise Republican will scream partisan witch hunt.

  8. Thank you sir , yes it is the way to do it, hope your idea goes through.

    “GRAMPA MUNSTER”😂

  10. Two minutes after Chief Justice Roberts swears in each US Senator as a juror in the impeachment trial, he needs to declare null and void the rigged jury rules unilaterally instituted by Sen. McConnell. In their place, the established senate rules developed bilaterally in 1868 for the Johnson impeachment are to guide a just, balanced, fair and truly non-partisan special judicial process. For one thing, the presiding judge assumes full power to decide on all matters of process and procedure, thus serving as more than a mere figurehead. Moreover, the jurors are to submit their votes via SECRET BALLOT. Why? …
    (1) Secret balloting of jurors is the standard American judicial norm.
    (2) An impeachment trial is not supposed to mirror public opinion polls nor be subjected to partisan concerns; jurors must be free to vote according to the evidence and their consciences.
    (3) The US Constitution stipulates that the U.S. Senate is to be reconstituted as a new body (i.e., not your regular legislative body for business as usual) for a presidential impeachment trail.
    (4) A clear pattern of witness intimidation, obstruction of justice, and attempted jury tampering by President Trump and his associates not only make a secret ballot justified but necessary. Threats of retribution, such as were exercised by Trump against Senators Flake and Corker for daring to raise informed questions about his unfitness for the Oval Office, have already gone against justice and the national interest.
    Additionally, McConnell should receive a warning that he is not the jury foreman by virtue of his office and that if he (or Graham or any other Republican Senator) persists on acting as a de facto member(s) of the defense team, he may be censored or even disqualified as a juror. The same goes for any Democratic senator who tries to coordinate efforts with the prosecution team provided by the House. Finally, the jury foreman can only be selected from among those senators who have not made public statements for or against Trump’s removal from office.

    • @ford5522
      You’re getting the cart before the horse.
      The Trial is held in the Senate.
      The House held the investigation.
      If you have ever even watched a cop show, you know that during an investigation the suspect nor his lawyers are allowed to set in on the interviews conducted by the DA.
      There is no Due Process that says the accused gets to meddle in the investigation. If he does, he is arrested and charged with Tampering and Obstruction.
      Win the case comes to Trial (in the Senate in this case), then and only then does “the accused get to face his accusers and call witnesses”.
      That sir, is Due Process. And if you believe otherwise you have been mislead.

    • @Rick Simpson Yah. However I think it is Russia and Turkey that love him. And I wish they could have him. But who knows what will happen when he does get out of office.

    Mitch is gonna take your Articles of Impeachment and Flush it down the toilet bowl 🚽

  12. NO WAY !!!!! WE WILL BLOCK YOUR WITNESS LIST JUST LIKE YOU BLOCKED OURS IN THE HOUSE 😎

  13. Doesn’ t matter what Schumer wants , the entire Senate phase of the impeachment will run however the Senate rules give McConnell the power to run it.

    • Yes! No different than the House ruled the impeachment inquiry. Now Chuck knows what it feels like when things seem unfair…looks good on him!

  14. John Roberts needs to disqualify a few biased senators.

  15. BE FAIR? JUST LIKE THE HOUSE, JERRY AND ADAM WAS FAIR IN YOUR HEARINGS. BUT LIKE YOUR FACELIFT….

    When they are losing in the adult debate, “mommmy, cookie monster ate my homework!!!”, then childish tantrums and threats of fireworks display are on chat board.

  17. WE WANNA SEE ALL THE REST OF THE DOCUMENTS AND HEAR FROM ALL OF THE WITNESSES OR THIS IS JUST A COVER UP AND ALL REP. ARE COMPLICIT IN THE CRIME.

    This seems like a common sense approach. Scary what things are coming to.
