Congress set the bar, if you have a problem with the way it will be handled in the senate direct your outrage at Schiff and Nadler.

They never claimed to have come to a pre-conclusion. They always publicly said that they would follow where the evidence led. This is where the evidence has led us. It is Republicans who have made their mind up before seeing all the evidence.
You just think it was "unfair" because you think it is unfair that anyone had the gall to POINT OUT the corruption and abuses of power of conservatives in the White House. Sondland testified under oath that there was a quid pro quo, and that he DIRECTLY told Ukraine that there was a quid pro quo. That is definitely probably cause to believe an impeachable offense was committed. You SHOULD want to explore the FACTS and determine whether there was an abuse of power. But, you don't because you are partisan.
Now you are claiming that it is OK for YOU to do the wrong thing because you THINK that someone else on the other side did the wrong thing. Didn't your mom ever tell you that two wrongs don't make a right? Are your morality and ethics really that fluid, that you base whether you believe that YOUR actions are right or wrong completely on how ANOTHER person acts? Or, as a conservative, do you actually HAVE any morality or ethics.
I BELIEVE that Democrats have acted honorably and in the Constitutional spirit during this process. And, as far as I can tell, pretty much all liberals feel that way. You seem to disagree, which is your right, but you are also biased against liberals and biased towards Trump, so it is not surprising that you would assume the worst of the people you see as your opponents. So, we can agree to disagree on exactly how partisan and/or honorable the actions of the Democrats are.
But, we can ALL AGREE (even conservatives) that Republicans have been completely partisan and dishonorable throughout this process. "You did it first" is an ADMISSION that YOU are doing what you are accusing others of.
That Republicans are partisan and dishonorable is a FACT because EVERYONE agrees with it. That Democrats are as well is your opinion, that I think is based upon your biases against them.
