That's what you guys said about the Russian conspiracy thing.

How did that pan out?

None of the witnesses could personally attest that Trump directly conditioned the release of the $400 million in military aid on a Ukrainian announcement of investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden and the Democratic National Committee.

So where's the 'mountain of impeachment evidence'. The title and article are ridiculous, just like the farcicle investigation with no visible whistle-blower.

This whole impeachment drive is going to backfire spectacularly. Voters are getting sick of the Dem's lame efforts to destroy the duly elected President by claiming serious wrong doing over absolutely nothing like Russia and now this. The accompanying media storms fueled by left wing operatives masquerading as journalists is turning the swing vote public and many former Dem voters off in droves. What a disastrous mess.

What in the world has happened to the once great Democratic party of old, the friend of the working class? They have completely lost their minds. Now terminally infected by Marxist bible thumping hypocrite limousine elitist liberals, race baiters, men haters, extreme LGBTQ activists, anti free speech advocates, slaughter the babies at 40 weeks supporters, and all manner of crazies like The Squad. What a sad demise from the great days of Jimmy Carter.

Um, no they're not, what gave you that silly idea. Have you not looked at the numbers? Americans support impeachment.

Just because your team is annoyed with it, doesn't mean Americans are. Most Americans are anti-corruption.

Trump explicitly ordered U.S. government officials to work with his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani on matters related to Ukraine, a country deeply dependent on Washington’s help to fend off Russian aggression. The president pushed Ukraine to launch investigations into political rivals, leaning on a discredited conspiracy theory his own advisers disputed. And both American and Ukrainian officials feared that Trump froze a much-needed package of military aid until Kyiv announced it was launching those probes.

Those facts were confirmed by a dozen witnesses, mostly staid career government officials who served both Democratic and Republican administrations. They relied on emails, text messages and contemporaneous notes to back up their recollections from the past year.

And yet his acolytes continue to scream 'nothing to see, carry on'.

It does not look like GOPer politicians will put country ahead of party. The best we can hope for is a Democratic sweep in the elections, and then Trump tried in court for his many crimes. What we cannot reverse is his betrayal of the Kurds and Ukrainians. Who will he betray next? Japan? South Korea? Germany? Norway? What country does Putin want to attack next?

You mean the results of the same pollsters that predicted a decisive Hillary win? If Dems believe the polls support impeachment it proves again that they have learned nothing and lost the plot entirely. It's almost unbelievable.

Of course I mean those polls. Why would I ever believe the other team’s polls? They summarily dismiss polls they don’t like. Of course I’m not going to do that. Your team has taught me power is more important than ethics.

This has become so ridiculous, Im ashamed of the way my country is acting.

CNN says this, Fox counters that. Fox comes out with this, CNN counters that

Just get the crap over with already, scare Trump a little in the Senate, let him get back to work.

Yeah all these ethical issues are getting boring. Can’t he just be excused for whatever he did, we’re bored of all this talk of treason and criminality. It’s so 2016.

I'm not suggested an either/or. You don't have to believe the 'other team's' polls. They were all wrong last election, probably due to the fact that conservatives just didn't want to engage with biased media anymore. They simply expressed their opinion with their vote.

What I am suggesting is that in order to regain the respect of swing voters and hopefully a few Repub voters, Dems need to cease baseless accusations like this impeachment probe and the Russia debacle, and other far left policies and present to the public workable policies that benefit the working class as they used to under Carter, Bill Clinton, etc. A workable universal health care system, a minimum wage and secure borders, respect for conservatives, etc are a great start. I would love to see the Dems do so. They might win in 2020 if they do.

Trump is on the rack stretching the truth again!

Mountain of impeachment evidence against Trump

Yeah, right. Mountains of "I heard..." and "I think..." No actual evidence.

beyond dispute

No it's not. Read the transcript already, sheesh.

All of this just because they can't find a challenger for the election. Shameful.

Im counting on the Repubs to circle wagons, so far indicators are telling they will

If this prez gets removed or has to resign, it will not be a good day. He has done allot, and allot of people, that count in the US, will be mad. They better think this through.

These worthless Dems are the joke of the world. I was watching this loon Warren, talking about "who is this Sonderland guy?" suggesting the Dems if elected would appoint qualified ambassadors to post with state dept experience.

Interesting. Seems her team has already sent 2 already to Japan with no experience.

There is no mountain of evidence. Let the charade go on for a month or so longer, its already loosing steam.

You keep pumping it, but its dying.

I don't understand the Trumpers here - I mean, Donnie's last physical showed he was clearly obese...

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-02-15/donald-trump-is-now-obese-according-to-his-physical-exam/10817110

And this past week he had a medical emergency and had to make an ambulance trip over to Walter Reed...not good....

And it's been widely reported his diet not very healthy;

Breakfast: Egg McMuffin...

Lunch: Meatloaf sandwich....

Dinner: His preferred order, according to Lewandowski, is “a full McDonald’s dinner of two Big Macs, two Filet-O-Fish sandwiches, and a small chocolate shake – a total of 2,430 calories.” 

Woah.....can we all say "cardiac arrest"?

So, you have to know that he'll get a much healthier diet in prison - three squares a day...and he can dine with Stone and Manafort, and soon Flynn and Giuliani...and Rick Perry shouldn't be far behind...

So if you "love your guy" so much, you should be hoping he's impeached and convicted by the NYSD Attorney...and sent to Rikers Island.

Best fat farm in the world...
