Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, January 21, 2020

Trump is guilty of all the charges made in the Impeachment documents and far, far, more. Republicans are guilty, too, of assisting, enabling, protecting, and covering up his unethical and criminal acts every way possible. This is the only conclusion a reasonable human can reach based on the action of the Republican controlled Senate. This explains why McConnell can say "We're running this just like the Clinton impeachment proceedings" when the rules proposed are nothing like the Clinton impeachment hearings.

The Republicans are guilty of coverup, and they are doing their best to keep everything out of sight of the public. They know Trump's guilty without doubt, but they can't offend their golden goose. They're getting what they've wanted for so long. Just like Evangelicals selling their souls there's no way they can give up getting the judges they need to execute their agenda. How else to explain the actions of Republicans?

The proposal under McConnell/Republicans, knowing that Roberts who must preside and isn't free until 1PM, allow 24 hours to make the case, and all 24 hours must be used within 48 hours once started. This pushes the trial well into the late, late night/early morning, guaranteeing few people will be watching.

Why else would witnesses not be immediately part of this trial? The witnesses' testimony for Clinton was all documented after a 3 year fully funded deep investigation into every aspect of the Clintons. Not so here. Calling the witnesses was a confirmation of what was in the Starr report.

Why else would the evidence not be entered into the record?

Why else would new evidence and witnesses be excluded?

Why else do everything to keep everyone as uninformed as possible, excluding witnesses, excluding evidence, doing things under the cover of darkness into the wee morning hours?

There's nothing in Trump's defense filings that address the charges, but rather it's a concatenation of TrumpTweets, compiled and backed by a wacko theory about how impeachment can't be done to this President because. An insane defense of "I can shoot someone on 5th Ave and no one can investigate or charge me while I'm President!" - A 'theory' already voiced and proposed by Trump's lawyers in Court in another case.

The only reason for going to all these extremes is because they know he's guilty and there is no defense for his actions.

Yes, he's guilty. Mitch is rigging an acquittal and that's all Trump will have, no exoneration. Here are the things Trump will do next>

1) Crow that he's been found innocent.

2) Burn with anger because his pride is hurt.

3) Do much worse than he was impeached for because he thinks he got away with it and wants revenge.

There's never been a personality as president so easy to read. That's one of the enduring mysteries of Trumpism. Are his followers too stupid to even read what is simple, is Trump exactly the man they want, or is it all just one big professional wrestling exhibition as far as they care?

I'm afraid you're right, Zed. This is one petty, vindictive, amoral person that the Republicans have rallied behind and are defending at all costs.

The Democrats need to make sure their arguments are in Prime Time and powerful, leaving no doubt Trump's guilty. Period. Leave all the pontificating and BS in the garbage.

No one is going to watch these political hacks drone on in prime time. Life is too short.

That seems to be the bet Mitch is making. I think it's more likely people will watch after work but before bed than otherwise. This may be a sign of how Republicans are out of touch with say, almost everyone.

Of what charges?

Define your terms.

I certainly won't bother any further with your disingenuous "request" Mackris.

Most trumpers are on social security and do not work. That is why they are so clueless about the economy.

They are more worried about bowel movements than they are about criminals in the Russia-bribed GOP.

McConnell and the Republicans have caved on the "24 hours in 2 days" mandate. They couldn't sell that load of crap even to their base.

Turns out what anyone on this forum thinks does not matter one wit.

Dems are wasting everyone's time.

It was the same with the Kavanaugh. All the Dems did is embarrass themselves and lose any chance of taking the Senate.

What fools.

I don't feel the least bit embarrassed by Kavanaugh's hearing. I am more convinced after that fiasco that the GOP is morally bankrupt and beyond redemption. True scum.

And after watching today/tonight - the Democrats have put forth a logical, reasoned, considered, law based presentation while the Republicans spout nonsense and vote without thinking.

There's only one side that's wasting everyone's time, destroying America, putting our democracy at risk, and making fools of themselves, and it's not the Democrats. It's the Republicans. Each and every single one of them.

I feel sad for America. What a loss.

That's disappointing. It was a LW travesty. Granted, after Garland...I get it. Doesn't change how ------- disgusting and stupid it was though.

Kavanaugh is the one who should feel embarrassed by the Kavanaugh hearings.

The guy's a drunk with zero trial experience.
I can see why the right loves him so much.

Is JeffJ praising his drunken rape idol Kavanaugh?

"There are no explicit requirements in the U.S. Constitution for a person to be nominated to become a Supreme Court justice."

You seriously think I don't know that?

I'd like a judge who has actually been a judge, before putting them on the Supreme Court.
How about you?
