That's not what I'm seeing.

But then again I suppose it depends on what you think Donald is being accused of. Care to specify?

"So every time you heard the Republican's designated counsel ask about Hunter Biden's language skills or one of the Republican members of the Intelligence Committee ask whether the Obama administration sold Javelin missiles to Ukraine, what you were actually hearing was a defense attorney doing his level best to avoid talking about what his client said on tape"

They are called "logical fallacies". And people use them when they know they can't win an argument on its merits.

Hence, why they are conservatives' FAVORITE debate technique.

Until it's a Liberal on the stand, and then the thousands of examples you can find on the Internet of Libs doing the exact same thing just become acceptable?

Renato Mariotti seems to be forgetting the Republican trump card, lie!

The Republican Party knows the people who generally vote for them aren't watching the impeachment hearings. They're waiting for Trump's tweets and Faux News to tell them what happened.

As far as they know. Trump has been fully cleared of any wrongdoing.

Need proof?

They (Democrats) have NO evidence.

Acceptable? No. It is never "acceptable".

But it is understandable. What other choice do you have when you are dealt a losing hand.

Go ahead. Throw out your fallacies. We all know you can't argue on the merits, because you have none.

With that in mind, one of the hottest topics on Faux News last night was the size of George Kent's water bottle and asking who it was that allowed him to even bring it into the hearing room in the first place, as if perhaps Bill Barr needed to open another 'investigation' to get to the bottom of this.

#10 Actually no. It was Kent saying that in 2014 the US wanted Burismo investigated and that right after Hunter Biden was hired the investigation ended. Can't make this stuff up.

Can you provide a citation for that please? Specifically the part where you claim he said that "right after Hunter Biden was hired the investigation ended."

Well... you can. And you do.

Just a sec... are you accusing me of "name calling"??? For calling out logical fallacies?

I do indulge in "name calling" from time to time, but this is not one of those times.

Please point out the "name calling". Is saying you were "dealt a losing hand" considered "name calling"? How about saying "you can't argue on the merits, because you have none." Is that what you considered "name calling"? Is that a new conservative thing? You find facts offensive, so someone pointing them out to you, you consider being called a "name"?

Let me help you out... You are an idiot.

Now that is ACTUALLY "name calling".

A career State Department official overseeing Ukraine policy told congressional investigators this week that he had raised concerns in early 2015 about then-Vice President Joe Biden's son serving on the board of a Ukrainian energy company but was turned away by a Biden staffer, according to three people familiar with the testimony.

Kent said he had concerns that Ukrainian officials would view Hunter Biden as a conduit for currying influence with his father, said the people. But when Kent raised the issue with Biden's office, he was told the then-vice president didn't have the "bandwidth" to deal with the issue involving his son as his other son, Beau, was battling cancer, said the people familiar with his testimony.

This morning I was channel surfing MSNBC, C-SPAN, CNN and Fox News. With the exception of Fox News, there was wall-to-wall coverage of the impeachment hearings. What was Fox News covering? Turkeys! Apparently some town in NJ was inundated with wild turkeys and was looking for some way of getting rid of them.

Fox News thought that this was news worthy? No wonder their loyal viewers are so misinformed.

"What was Fox News covering? Turkeys! "

At 1:30 eastern on the day after Democrats took the Virginia legislature, the only "Virginia" hit on Foxnews.com was about the Cavalier's basketball team.

Has what to do with what Donald Trump did?

You want to impeach Hunter Biden? Not sure that's possible. You can vote against his dad if you want.

And... What in all that was illegal?

Or, what was even unethical?

Kent only said he had concerns about how it APPEARED. He said he never saw any indication that any actual impropriety occurred. So, what is your point?

OMG, if Congress looked into everything in Trump world that APPEARED to be inappropriate, we'd be having hearings six days of the week.

We might already be there. The impeachment committee is going to be taking a deposition THIS Saturday, given by a career staffer at the Office of Management and Budget, who decided today that he feels compelled to come forward and apparently relate to Congress what he knows about how and why the aid to Ukraine was held-up.

LOL religion is a disease.

False piety isn't going to save you from the mistake you've made in supporting that orange schitheap.
