The Democrats' case upholds democracy and exposes the corruption and pure evil of the GOP
I’m following this impeachment via Progressive News because watching and listening to too much of it will trigger my anxiety over the past 4 years and Trump flashbacks. I’m thrilled to see McConnell’s power going down the drain. The soulless GOP and their blatant bigotry and arrogance is now destroying their party and it’s a wonderful thing to see! They underestimated (and still are) the will and decency of the majority of Americans.
Their reluctance to convict Trump will stain their party and family legacies forever. And they have no one to blame other than themselves. Karma!
What a strong presentation by the House managers today so far. The fact that almost all of the Q-publican Senators aren't swayed by the threats to their lives and in some cases their family member's lives makes you wonder how anyone could be so devoid of the courage to do the right thing. If this get described by them as just another partisan attack by democrats, I'm going to lose my s**t.
can you imagine being Sen. Romney and seeing the video of his NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE live----along with his colleagues and the rest of the world watching???
I'm just disgusted with the RepubliQan Party. They have sunk to depths I previously thought unimaginable. The House Managers are putting on a devastating indictment of Trump, Trumpism, and the cowardly, authoritarian party that has enabled him. I am wholeheartedly convinced that they are so thoroughly corrupted that if they don't convict him, it is because they don't want him barred from running for office again (as that will be the very next order of business after conviction), which means they do want him to run again, which means they want him to win and serve (at least) another four years.
If they actually vote against conviction, it's beyond disgusting. I can only imagine that they will use "unconstitutional" as the excuse to hang their perfidy on ("It's unconstitutional, therefore the entire impeachment is invalid"). At least they can't say that "it's the Democrat party" that did it. That they can sit and watch (if they're even watching) and not convict, it's almost beyond words. They need to be wiped out politically, made to be a non-entity, and go the way of the dinosaurs.
I'm leaving strong voice messages for my worthless Senators (Rubio & Scott). Of course, I'd never vote for them, but they need to know what needs to be done to restore Democracy in this country.
You are talking about cancel culture. Please make it clear, the Republicans invented Cancel Culture in 2002 with the Dixie Chicks( now the Chicks). Remember the cover of the Rolling Stone? The Chicks, with Traitors, Boycott, etc. written on their bodies, so once again hypocrisy.
The impeachment trial clearly and without doubt shows that Donald Trump is guilty. No matter how republicans vote, it is all on record. History has been written. The Republican Party will be shown to have willfully accepted that their president caused an insurrection on the very Government/People that he was to protect. He did it under false pretenses and he caused the death of many, including a Police Office, with whom those very same people pontificate about always supporting. If there is any video of those closest to Trump where they verbally denounce the deaths, I have yet yo see it.
I never thought of this, but all elected members eligible for succession were in the Capitol.. Pence, Pelosi and Grassley were there. If they had been caught and executed, the next in the succession line would be a cabinet member. DT could have declared martial law, and we might be looking at Betsy D as his VP.
Watching this I realize how absolutely wonderful it is not having to see or hear Fake Bone Spurs anymore. These tapes are excruciating.
Seriousness aside, and due respect to the Democrats... but still...
All I have seen on the major news websites are Democratic senators and congresspeople walking back and forth in a double file line, through the hallways of the capitol, all day. It's getting a little ridiculous.
