This impeachment was justified.  But the trial will be the sham.

Why should I have the stigma of Impeachment attached to my name when I did NOTHING wrong?” 

Whiner in Chief dishing out more lies and his intellectually challenged supporters lapping it up.

“The Senate should not reward this behavior by the House," said Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. 

If there is crowdfunding for balls transplant on Lindsey, I will contribute.

“It’s about a fair trial,” Pelosi told

It's probably too late for a fair trial. Trump, McConnell, Rubio, Cruz, Graham etal are doing what they can to make sure Trump's protected. What are Trump and the GOP hiding? I thought Trump said he was the most transparent president. Hmmm

One leading Republican, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, has already predicted that the trial would end ”in a matter of days.''

So does that mean that Trump will now have time to get back to work for the US taxpayers, instead of playing the victim at: golf, Twitter, and weekly emotional Red-State support pep-rallies?

“It’s about a fair trial,” Pelosi told ABC's “'This Week." “We’ve done our job.

Uh, no, they've been too busy with Impeachment Lite to do their job.

We have defended the Constitution of the United States.

Nah, they've made a mockery of the Constitution.

Pelosi's still mad because bad orange man took away her jet keys during the government shutdown.

bad orange man 

Secret societies have secret handshakes to identify membership. The global alt right keyboard warriors use terms like orange man bad hoax sham witch hunt Hillary they've read in #chan/RT/Breitbart to identify themselves to each other. LOL SMH

What a delight to see shifty Schiff lie and squirm while he is interrogated.

-5 ( +3 / -8 )

The president also rebutted Pelosi's suggestion that no matter what the Senate does, the House vote last month means Trump will be “impeached forever" and “for life.”

Pelosi really knows how to get under his skin. LOL

Nah, they've made a mockery of the Constitution.

Think you need to do a bit better than that. Still haven't seen an even vaguely coherent defence of Trump's actions. It has so far been limited to whining and a lot of shouting about witch hunts.

Yes our President is 100% correct Nansi and Shitff should be called and interrogated. Let the world know what are they. Democrats want Trump impeached and replaced him with Biden president and Hunter Biden vice president.. This is left and lunatics want. Make USA a slave of China.

Trump blocks Bolton being called.

Lol! And Trump knows how to get under her skin.

Uh-huh - who gets their clothing line made in Chinese sweatshop factories even when he calls China an unfair trader?

Hey, Master of the Deal (as in QPQ) - we'll give you Schiff, Joe, and Hunter if you give us Pompeo, Perry, Pence, Bolton, Mulvaney, and Duffy...oh, and Stormy - we want to hear about that payoff...

Come on John, regale us with tales about the "drug deal"....

The behavior of those reprobate Republican senators blocking all witnesses with first-hand knowledge of Trump's numerous violations of his oath of office is an affront to the Constitution and an insult to the American people who pay out of their pocket to finance their representatives' privileged life-styles. A bunch of subpoenas should have been issued long ago and those witnesses refusing to testify housed tout de suite in a super-max to chill some. Otherwise, what on earth is the meaning of this American "democracy" with an "infallible" and "untouchable" POTUS?

The president also rebutted Pelosi's suggestion that no matter what the Senate does, the House vote last month means Trump will be “impeached forever" and “for life.”

That statement alone shows Nancy's (and the dems) hate and malice that is the motive behind the bogus impeachment. She wants Trump to suffer for the rest of his life. She doesn't in the least seem burdened by duty or concerned with the constitution. No one should feel glee about the President getting impeached. The whole country should feel sober about it. But she knows this and that's why she got caught on camera when she was slamming the gavel motioning to the dems to stop their cheering. But the the impeachment has nothing to do with the defense of the constitution and everything to do with the dem's corruption. The irony is, her reputation will be marred long after she's gone as the house leader who led a bogus impeachment against a president for purely political reasons and to revenge the 2016 outcome.

You must admit that was funny trolling from Trump. He tweeted he’s running the most transparent administration in history while hiding his tax returns.

Yea, sure....let's see; He's already labeled a Russia-lover, a white supremacist, a serial pervert, and as we've seen this week, a war-hawk and a NEOCON... Now he'll be remembered as an impeached President - the stain will remain forever.

And once he's tossed out, he'll be indicted by the NYSD Attorney for the illegal payoff in the Stormy case - remember that check signed in black Sharpie?

He'll then be known as the first President to join 7 of his other compatriots at Club Fed....with several others (Perry, Crazy Rudy) just waiting their turn in the dock...

And once he's tossed out,

Impossible.

The chances of that happening is as likely as Madonna becoming the next POTUS.

Did notice you completely ignored the Esper story...

It’s the Huffington Post, come on! ROFL!

The house interviewed everyone they wanted. If they wanted more could have waited for judicial to rule on subpoenas. So how can it be a “cover up “ in the Senate?

The Senate is simply reviewing what the House presents, no requirement to add to it.

When will the Repubs learn - when it comes to wars in the Middle East, the answer is never...

Oh the CNN inspired hysteria. Let's just say for argument's sake, if the US did just have a war with Iran after Trump took out Iran's #2, then it was a great war. Zero US casualties and the duration of a day. Shortest and sweetest war in history.

Steve Bannon

Rump turned the trashometer up to 11 and called him ‘sloppy Steve’.

He’s been discredited.

Trump didn't do anything wrong, house democrats are liars and Trump wont be impeached. Bring on the downvotes

Next will be the McConnell cover-up.

Trump Tied Soleimani Hit To Support From GOP Hawks Ahead Of Impeachment Trial: Reports

https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-soleimani-gop-hawks-impeachment-trial-mar-a-lago-015057863.html

President Donald Trump openly discussed how the U.S. airstrike assassination of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani would shore up support from Republican Senate hawks in time for his impeachment trial, according to reports in both The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.

Killing people and causing the deaths of many others for his own selfishness!

Trump Tied Soleimani Hit To Support From GOP Hawks Ahead Of Impeachment Trial: Reports

Yahoo? Ahh, the incredible reliable source. Lol

And even if that were true hypothetically, honestly it really wouldn’t matter because the world is still a better place with that man gone.

Killing people and causing the deaths of many others for his own selfishness!

no, the Iranian government is responsible for taking the plane down, their territory their land and they shot and killed their own people, no one told them to leave the missile defense system on, that is more than just incompetence, they knew they were commercial flights in the air and if they didn’t then that’s just dumb on their part.

-7 ( +2 / -9 )

No Republican Senator (except Romney) had any plan at all to vote for impeachment. That Yahoo article is speculative nonsense.

Talk about propaganda! the JT picture says it all!
