You have long ago proven yourself to be intellectually dishonest and resistant to facts and reason.

Interesting thing about this.     Shokin was widely viewed as a corrupt prosecutor by almost all of our allies.  It was widely known within our our foreign policy team that he actually neede

Republicans: Does it own the libs? Then HELL YEAH!!!!

 

 

I'm convinced a fairly large portion of Republicans would be fine not having real elections if it meant their team had "won." In fact they'd probably laugh about how the liberals were owned as we become a dictatorship.

These guys would be tossed out of any other jury pool.

Senators overseeing impeachment trial got campaign cash from Trump legal team members

 

Some members of President Donald Trump’s impeachment defense team are campaign donors to jurors in the Senate. 

 

Former independent counsels Ken Starr and Robert Ray, who investigated then-President Bill Clinton around the time of his impeachment, each made large campaign contributions to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) last year before joining Trump’s legal team. 

 

Starr, who on Monday lambasted what he called the “age of impeachment” before the Senate, gave $2,800 to McConnell in July 2019. Just after House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry in September, Ray gave McConnell $5,600, the maximum allowed for the primary and general elections. OpenSecrets couldn’t identify any other federal contributions from the two during the 2020 cycle. 

 

Before the impeachment trial started, McConnell said he would work in “total coordination” with the White House on impeachment tactics, prompting backlash from Senate Democrats and one crucial Republican. The Republican-led Senate is expected to acquit Trump on charges that he abused the presidency by withholding aid from Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into his political opponents. Following revelations reportedly uncovered in a manuscript written by former national security adviser John Bolton, some Republicans may join Democrats in calling for witnesses to testify. 

 

Among Starr’s other political contributions, he gave $2,700 to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) in 2017. Graham has emerged as one of Trump’s staunchest allies in the Senate, but he indicated Monday he’s interested in seeing what Bolton wrote in the manuscript.  Jay Sekulow, one of Trump’s personal attorneys, gave financial support to several Republican senators over the last two decades, including Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and John Thune (R-S.D.). Like others on Trump’s team including Ray, White House counsel Pat Cipollone and deputy White House counsel Patrick Philbin, Sekulow gave thousands to Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign

 

Trump himself is fundraising for senators tasked with coming to a verdict on his impeachment. He launched a joint fundraising committee to raise campaign cash for Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) late last year. Republican senators have reportedly been warned to acquit Trump or face retribution.

So, in other words, you really don't care about the law.  You know...the ones that protect whistle blowers?  After all, everything that was in his complaint has been substantiated by other witnesses.  The ONLY reason why Trump (and you) wants him outed is so that he can be personally attacked and prevent more whistle blowers.

 

He's likely a political operative who got angry that Trump's dialogue with Ukraine was not front page news. They had to change the rules to shoehorn his interference into the "whistleblower" law.  That institution has all the dignity of the FISA court.  If this was a real criminal trial, well first the charges would be tossed for vagueness.  Afterwards every witness Trump's team has named would be relevant and fundamental.

You do realize that waiving a privilege is not the same as not being able to sustain an assertion of it, don’t you?  Ultimately it may get decided in court, but trump isn’t waiving anything.  
I also must point out that there is also a “jury” of voters who would like to know what happened, not just a majority of biased senators who won’t convict and don’t want to know the truth.  Can you see now why the more evidence we learn, the better?   It’s really not that difficult to understand.  

Seriously?  The jury would probably like to know everything the people told their attorney.  Sorry that's confidential.  You want to know what top ministers told the chief executive?  You lose. The necessity for any President to get the best advice from the best people trumps your unending partisan ire.  If you want a source see Chuck Schumer in 1999.

Trump's defense team has nothing. 

They are questioning Hunter Biden being in a position he knows nothing about.  Can you say Ivanka Trump amd Jared??  Those 2 didn't even have security clearance. 

The only people that believe what the defense team is the Fox News sheep.  I'm sure Rush Limbaugh is going off every day talking about "This is a waste of Taxpayer money.. What a wonderful President.. by the way, remember the time that ....."
