    US Elections 2020

    So you're saying that the US giving foreign powers money (which is what our foreign aid actually is) on preconditions is what exactly? It's like you're arguing that walking isn't walking here.... Well yeah, not many presidents have had to deal with an international corruption investigation.... Which was investigate a corrupt politician.... Are you seriously saying that crime isn't cause for the police to investigate? And in this case most of the Democrats (especially those from California and New York) did neither.... Which is why some Democrats are backing away from the impeachment fiasco because they see it blowing up in their faces. So did the Republicans, but it's expected you ignore the facts there.... IF a Republican had actually done what Franken had did, the same thing would have happened like what happened to that Republican dude in Alabama I think it was. I mean, where are all the Democrats demanding that Bill Clinton be put on trial for all the sexual assault and sexual harassment that rapist has committed? So you're saying he should be investigated, right? Which is in direct conflict to your prior statement because Trump is investigating Biden for abuse of power. Because Trump (in this case) is doing his job while the Democrats are running a desperate political gambit (that is failing) because the Democrats realize just how screwed they are come 2020. By the way, I want to thank you Democrats for helping Trump get reelected in 2020, because that's EXACTLY what this impeachment fiasco is doing. So please, give him all the coverage and keep covering his Tweets, keep giving him free press as Trump is playing the press like a fiddle - exactly like how he did in 2016. Please keep the Orange man in your headspace, and please keep acting like unhinged lunatics, because you're the best double agents the Republican party has ever had - exactly like AOC 😃

    Go take a look at the timeline at https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2019/politics/trump-impeachment-timeline/ When you see stuff like: I mean, there it is as clear as day (in the Washington Post no less) events that show Trump was already looking into Ukraine before Biden was running for President. So in other words we should impeach most of the House of Representatives because they have violated the public trust and injured society itself?

    So if the Democrats were so right on the money about Trump, why are there defections? https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/house-democrats-brace-for-some-defections-among-moderates-on-impeachment-of-trump/ar-AAK2oCK This only makes the impeachment look like a politically driven thing, and not what an impeachment should be about.

    --- What a lot of the other posters here aren't getting is that for Trump to actually be removed from office, they need all the Democrats in the Senate (45) and 22 other senators to vote to remove Trump. If the Democrats cannot convince the Republicans that Trump did something worthy of impeachment, the entire impeachment process will be nothing more than a futile waste of time. So you're saying Biden coercing Ukraine by withholding foreign aid so that Hunter Biden could be hired onto Burisma isn't an abuse of power?

    Well, if you believe the media/Democrat narrative on the Trump/Ukraine stuff, you're an intellectually lazy idiot that's too stupid to go do the homework and figure out what actually happened, as what happened and the narrative being presented are two vastly different things. Actually it does. I highly doubt Trump would be looking at Ukraine if Biden hadn't done what he did. If we approach it as a typical foreign policy... Please explain how the entire foreign aid concept isn't bribery and coercion.

    No, that's not what I'm saying (or at least, not what I'm trying to say). The point with the Ukraine thing is that it IS NOT about digging up dirt on Biden, despite how the media (and Democrats) are characterizing it. That's why motive is so crucial here. From what I have seen (especially going by the timeline), Trump was looking into Biden LONG before Biden threw his name in the hat for President. Biden being a candidate and Biden being under investigation is purely coincidental, and it has not been proven that Trump is looking into Ukraine to investigate Biden for political dirt. What makes this really muddy (and why both sides claim they're right) is that Biden strong armed Ukrainian officials to get his son on Burisma's board, which gives sufficient probable cause to investigate Biden for corrupt activities while he was VP. That's why the Republicans are fighting so hard on this as, from their perspective, Trump is just doing his job while the Democrats are trying to protect their own. They ended when Monica got Resolutely nailed in the Oval Office.

    Oh, I see it's programming is working as expected again. Good NPC, here's a cookie!

    You're going to need to prove that Trump isn't investigating Biden's corrupt activities Ukraine (which includes Burisma). Motive is crucial here as depending as Trump's motive is what is separating the Republicans from the Democrats. FTFY Impeachment =/= Impeachment + conviction. Stop assuming an impeachment automatically means a conviction, as the US Senate is 53 Republicans - 45 Democrats ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Senate ), so the conviction stage of the impeachment process is probably going to die on the vine because the Democrats have wholly failed to convince the Republicans that this is not a politically motivated stunt. That's one key difference with Nixon compared to Trump, as the Democrats actually convinced the Republicans that what Nixon did was bad, which led them to turn on Nixon. Cause if I can redpill one of them, it will have all been worth it. Until then, the spazzing out is definitely worth the lulz.

    Even Bloomberg realizes just how stupid the argument that Biden is a threat to Trump... https://www.cnn.com/videos/tv/2019/12/10/amanpour-bloomberg-impeachment.cnn Follow up on impeachment, this can go straight down party lines, as at this point the impeachment is a given. House Judiciary Committee as it's 24 Democrats to 17 Republicans (going by https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_House_Committee_on_the_Judiciary ), so anyone not expecting impeachment at this point is an idiot - so a party line vote = impeachment. Again with the House itself ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_House_of_Representatives ), it's 233-197, so a party line vote = impeachment. What the Democrats have, however, failed to do is show this is anything more than a rationalization for "we don't like Trump", and given how the Democrats have failed to accept any Republican presidential candidate that won the presidency all the way back to the first Bush (each election they lost wasn't a valid election), I'm not surprised that they have had a three year long hissy fit. Only an idiot believes that, and I thought you were smarter than that. The entire "Trump's using it for dirt on Biden" is a smokescreen to cover Biden abusing the office of VP to get his son a position on Burisma's board, which involved a multi-million dollar payout. Part of the President's job description is to root out corruption as not only is he the commander in chief, but he's also the top cop (as the FBI and CIA are part of the Executive Branch). With Burisma still in play, it gives Trump a 100% legal explanation for why Trump was doing. While hiring Guiliani to basically act as a private investigator is extremely unorthodox, given how Trump was drug by the FBI for several years I don't fault him for not trusting the FBI as Trump can't really fire people investigating him as that looks really, really bad. There is no royalty in the US, and no one is above the law (not even Cankles). I mean, are we not supposed to investigate corruption charges just because someone decides they want to run for President? You can impeach someone without a conviction, in which case the impeachment is basically meaningless. Democrats have failed to produce enough evidence to show this to be anything other than some desperate partisan thing because they're butt hurt that Trump beat them, so this entire process is likely going to die in the Senate... but hopefully not before some extraordinary collateral damage happens to the Democrats for this entire bout of stupidity. Or maybe I'm seeing this for what this is while you ostrich it up?

    If the Democrats actually had something on Trump that would get him impeached AND convicted, they would have already presented charges and impeached him. However.... nothing has happened in two weeks.... because the Democrats don't have jack and are doing an impeachment purely for political reasons. I fully expect the House Democrats to impeach Trump and force the vote through.... and then the real circus begins because the Republicans have an axe to grind, and this is only going to get worse for the Democrats because they have painted themselves in a corner and must go forward with impeachment despite the cost it will have in 2020.

    Since foreign policy is a nice way to of saying we're using coercion to get a foreign power to do something you want them to do, how is what Trump did any different to what we have been doing for over 200 years?

    How about spying on opponents for political gain? Either way, Schiff is getting sued at minimum as the information published has been stated (by Nunes) to be incorrect.

    US Elections 2020

    So with Schiff apparently having done exactly what Trump is accused of, it definitely leads one to ponder if the accusers aren't actually worse than the accused with this entire impeachment fiasco, specifically highlihgted by the quote from https://nypost.com/2019/12/07/democrats-have-embraced-the-exact-surveillance-tactics-they-used-to-warn-about/ : So, when are the Democrats going to face justice?

    Funny you cite that, because at https://youtu.be/ca12k2qbUQM?t=467 it mentions exactly what I've been talking about: The Democrats have prevented anyone with firsthand knowledge from testifying.....

    US Elections 2020

    And the article https://theweek.com/articles/879231/welcome-vengeance-election highlights one of the really big problems (and why both sides are acting like children), specfically: So yeah, that's baiscally how the Nazi's got the Germans to think so they could do whatever they wanted to the Jews... and we all know how THAT turned out. Funny how some never learn from history, only doomed to repeat it. Cause the only thing he has heard is a recording of it, NOT the actual call. This came out in one of the cross examinations of Vindman, which makes him a secondhand source, NOT a primary one. The MSM news agencies, however, aren't covering that because they have a narrative that they must maintain and they aren't going to admit fault. Dude, a cardboard box down by the river is not a guest house. The funny thing about that, is if you've managed to maintain yourself you can live longer than that. That's also one of the main reasons why I don't think Biden or Sanders are going to be viable candidates. Well, the House has complete failed to convince anyone that didn't already believe their impeachment narrative and they have turned the independents against them. You've also hit the nail on the head, as that's exactly what one of the big problems with the US is. As you have clearly seen from this thread, the Democrats are not rational as they are prone to flying off the handle as soon as you so much as disagree with them. No conversation can be had, so resentment will continue fester until both sides start working with each other again.
