McConnell declared even before the hearings ended that the Senate wasn’t going to convict:


Right

And when they don't you will say it's only because we had more dedicated Republicans back in Nixon's day

It's all laid out.  No further need for discussion.

You really are the troll you said you were.

It is quite impressive.

You take Trump at his word except when it is inconvenient. And ditto McConnell.

Wow.

Certainly no need for further conversation with you.

So they will set up a fake trial, drag Biden through the mud in a show of hearing all the evidence from “both sides” and then vote to let Trump off.


Required by law to do so

And they don't run it, as I am sure you know

No, they are not required to set up a fake trial.

Nor are they obligated to make up shit about Biden to avoid confronting the shit about Trump.

Liar.

Dude, you are the one saying the Senate's decision will reflect the strength of the evidence when McConnell has already said he doesn't care what the evidence is.


McConnell has one vote

Castor did make the salient point today that we won’t get the full factual basis for the story until all relevant documents and records are laid before congress and then the public. Otherwise, he was a sad and ineffective hack.

Said documents and records AND witnesses have been blocked by Trump so his point is... something.

His point is caught inflagrante delicto with Russian organized crime through their congressional republican intermediaries. The thug caucus should have found a better hack. There’s not much bench behind Barr in terms of terrorist lawyers. This one is arguing that his client is obstructing Congress.

Despite the smoke, the fire gets ever clearer.

So, what's going on in Syria?  Was supposed to be a huge story

And are we winning the second Korea war - the one Trump got us into?

Turkey and Putin continue to massacre Kurds, turd.

And no, not according to the Asia Times.

Renders the old ‘what did the president know and when did he know it ‘ question moot.

Warren has netted more legal earnings and paid more in taxes than trump over the last 30 years. Between the two, she is both the pro-business candidate and the better businessperson.

While the GOP was lamenting how the Democratic House came to DC with impeachment on its collective mind.

SO UNFAIR AND MEAN!

However the GOP was talking impeachment of HRC before the 2016 election.

Trump may have a very well documented Adderall problem, but he hasn’t gotten himself nearly as fucked up as Bill Barr is from huffing industrial solvents.

Yeah, we need “more research” because if we keep ‘researching’ all the vets afflicted by Agent Orange will just die off.

Hearing a motion to dismiss is quite possible after this gets out of the House
