Obviously it's not based on Trump's character. The investigation against Clinton started in 1994, and it wasn't until 1998 that people started to hear about it, when public, on-the-house-floor debates and hearings began. That was a sham. That's the parallel. I think this one is too, and they have started talking about it with full weight of career bureaucrats and media helping them pass judgement before the inquiry. It's not what the country needs. Inquiry or impeachment are certainly not required when an election is imminent. This is Machiavellian politics. People have been hoping for a change for a while now and this is the establishment resisting change. Just watch how many closet Republican Trump-haters are waiting for the momentum to cross a threshold level to vote against him. I don't care how Trump is, but all the worms are showing their true faces right now. I'd take Trump and AOC over the smooth-talking career politicians any day. With the inquiry, those people are winning, not the public.
Impeachment is necessary whrn the president commits a crime. It's literally a responsibility laid out in the constitution. Do you believe the constitution should be the governing law of the land or not?
Not passing judgment? Like I have been hearing for about 3 years now? Yeah right! He will be impeached, regardless of the inquiry outcome. That's either going to trigger a landslide for him in 2020 or lead to a civil war. I'd rather find a better candidate to beat him in 2020, but the Democrats won't run with any.
Review the facts before you reply, Biden's son was never under any form of investigation at any point in time. Any concerns about the company he joined related to a time BEFORE he joined and he was never even a person of interest. At all. Moreover no investigation of that company was even raised by this prosecutor until AFTER Biden pushed for him to be fired.
Finally, Biden's son DID clear the appointment with the Government to ensure it would not be contrary to any US policy or interest.
What you showed me is some evidence and not proof. All you have is a transcript that we can't even agree on and "he said she said" based on testimonies that "coincidentally" correlate to what sides the people are on.
Schiff managed to screw it up for the Democrats so badly when "reading" the transcript, that it killed any veil of objectivity. (Aka mistrial in legal terms)
I entertained both options, whereas you can't accept alternatives. Do you remember "innocent until proven guilty"? So until then, neither of our opinions is "reality".
If I did prove it, would you change your mind? Better yet, were you even aware there are cases where hearsay is allowed in court? I'm pretty sure you weren't. Were you aware a list is published? Again, pretty sure you weren't.
Since when a hearsay of a hearsay of a hearsay becomes evidence? Democrats are a joke. If you want to impeach the president of the united states, you can't do it from behind closed doors. Americans deserve to see the process
I got this, first off everyone knows you gotta say the crime when you commit it! If you say your are not doing it in a conversation. 100% can’t prosecute! And you can’t believe in a document that’s 100 years old, it’s phony!! It’s old! Remember brown and black people are scary! Obama!! Obama!! You guys are just deranged because of orange man! Get over it!! Btw, Anyone got Putin’s number? Totally not a performance review! gonna be a perfect call, prefect conversations!!
@oracle Uhh you are getting confused again, impeachment is a political process the inquiry is not. Btw the judge just say it was a legal inquiry. Maybe you read up the decision? Or are we gonna say the judge a deep state plant?
I don't see 1.) how you could guarantee that, or 2.) why it is relevant. Many successful executives have coke problems, including a few CVPs and at least one EVP currently at Microsoft. Why are you latching onto that insignificant detail in light of all the evidence against your position? Because you know you're wrong but can't admit it.
Lol you sweet sweet naive people. This is from the ABC interview
"If your last name wasn't Biden," Robach asked, "do you think you would've been asked to be on the board of Burisma?"
"I don't know. I don't know. Probably not, in retrospect," he said. "But that's -- you know -- I don't think that there's a lot of things that would have happened in my life if my last name wasn't Biden."
He admits it himself, but please keep on deluding yourself 😃😃
I am sure you would have no problem if Trump jr got onto a board of a foreign energy company. Ofcourse you would. But it’s ok for Biden because reasons
Nobody here is defending Hunter Biden in the sense that what he did was inappropriate. But it wasn't corrupt, wasn't illegal, and does not warrant investigation. Seasoned investigators in both countries have publicly said that. The chief prosecutor in the Ukraine flat out said "he has not broken any Ukrainian laws, I will not open an investigation. "
Why do you keep trying to make excuses for Trump based o supposed hypocrisy by Democrats? Is your brain too small to realize they are unrelated? Whether or not Trump commited a crime has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not somebody else commited a different crime.
Stop it guys amazon management gonna think we are all cultist, and then voices inside his head. He’s shown in his replies he can’t separate fact from fiction. Got in a debate on the merits of what is acceptable fiction. 🤦♂️
You know that nothing was voted on, just decided by the sub-queen Pelosi. In the end, this circus does not matter. It is tainted by partisanship so it will not change minds. Senate will not remove him. Trump will run again despite this and, since Democrats don't have a decent platform, will win anyway.
And that scenario is assuming everything you say somehow happens.
Except polls show minds have already been changing. Support for impeachment among independents, and more tellingly republicans, has increased over the last week. You live in a fantasy world where nobody cares about evidence. Unfortunately for you, most people are fairly rational.
It’s a smoking gun on top of another smoking gun. Just impeach Trump already. The GOP will not remove him in the senate. Let them take the political risk of protecting him. But FFS the gallery has had enough.
False. Several of the witnesses have first hand knowledge and most are republicans. Most are not never trumpers When you have to tell easily disproven lies to bolster your point, that's a good hint you're on the wrong side.
And they WILL be cross examined in public in the Senate trial. Absolutely all the "secrecy" you are complaining about is a farse. Investigations aren't public, trials are. The trial hasn't started yet.
So you now think sworn testimony in congress under oath isn’t good enough? You must have no faith in our justice system. Trumps last lawyer is in jail right now for lying under oath to congress. And it was bipartisan effort to put him in jail.
Why are you moving the bar for Trump? I mean they impeached Bill for lying about a BJ. Look at the catalog of shit Trump has. If Trump were Hillary, he would have been impeached several times already.
This country needs an enema. Not doing this lays the foundation for the next president to pull the same shit. That’s why the GOP impeached Bill.
Corroborate the statements given. If they check out (they do), begin impeachment proceedings.
