Seriously, MoscowMitch ?

They are not hiding anything anymore. Hopefully Judge Roberts reads this

snip-

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is bragging that he’s handing over control of the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump to President Donald Trump.

“Everything I do during this, I’m coordinating with White House Counsel,” the Kentucky Republican Leader told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Thursday night. “There will be no difference between the President’s position and our position as to how to handle this.”

10. There are suggestions that the Senate plan is for Moscow Mitch to move for aquital... the end.

There are suggestions that the Senate plan is for MoscowMitch to move for an acquittal... the end.

Hopefully, the Dems are thinking this through. John Dean suggests NOT moving it to the Senate. Let it fester in the House through next spring. Continue gathering more facts/proof. Bring along the public. Then move it to the Senate.

I have to admit I can see MoscowMitch pulling a stunt like that.

This could be all for naught. Those that see Trump is a threat a "clear and present danger" are not going anywhere. Those that are bots of the Trump cult are not going anywhere. It's the 20+% in the middle that need to be moved.

Let's make our next move the right long-range tactical move.

11. I think I agree with John Dean's suggestion. Let it fester awhile longer. The public

(more) will slowly come around. Then maybe a few Republicans will see the votes they need to stay in office override their allegiance to Heir Trump.

cowards if it stays in the house.

17. The MSM mostly ignored Trump-Russia all through the

campaign period, enabling his election. But they're paying a lot more attention to HIM now, though still avoiding stories on GOP-kleptocrats-Russia, and more about Trump et al's corruption will continue to come out for the court of public opinion over the coming months.

18. EXACTLY! They are going ̶s̶p̶i̶n̶ ̶i̶t̶ ̶r̶e̶g̶a̶r̶d̶l̶e̶s̶s̶ LIE. So let's keep it in the news.

4. If Moscow Mitch and Republicans refuse to convict trump

They're saying there is only trump rule of law, Congress has no longer equal powers , and judges no longer can have legal orders followed and instead ignored to hide their crimes for self protection, and can unleash anything against anyone who opposes them, or threatens exposing them. Democracy cannot exist under these circumstances, and the truth is under constant attack for fear of them being exposed. trump will be bragging soon he is the rule of law, and can do anything he wants. Watch how quickly he escalates his criminal activities from escaping justice from these complicit republicans enablers working for putin with trump now.

13. That is EXACTLY what they want.....

You summarized exactly what they want. "Congress has no longer equal powers , and judges no longer can have legal orders followed and instead ignored to hide their crimes for self protection, and can unleash anything against anyone who opposes them, or threatens exposing them." Since Reagan politicians have hammered how Congress is a do nothing institution, the courts are ruling our land, and people that oppose their views are evil and want to completely run their lives. This is their mantra for forty years. They WANT Trump to be the only law. What you view as wrong on many levels is exactly why Trump is in office now.

22. And next November 3 we will find out if we still have a

sovereign electorate or if 2012 was our last democratic presidential election.

Itm, the electorate, presumably in their wisdom, have chosen to put Republicans in charge of the senate and preside over the impeachment trial.



Hope someone told Calvin the power of his vote helps determine who gets in power whether he directs it himself or not.

5. The people of Kentucky

have tolerated this clown for too long. He is only for rich people, and himself. GET RID OF HIM. He has too much power, anyway. This insanity will continue until we dump the deadwood like McConnell, Graham, Goetz, Jordan and the rest of the gop fools. I am really concerned about what we do not know. These gop members are openly defending a president who breaks laws, and they don't care who knows it. What do they know, that we are unaware of so far? Every top tRump official is corrupt, and flaunt it. Barr is a tool for tRump. Pence is a whiny little shrimp, waiting to take over. Pompeo is a blustering ass. Mike Huckerbee is on Faux, saying tRump would be able to run for a third term as president!! In whose America? I am getting very nervous.

isn't coming from an impartial juror. Dems should be demanding Mitch recuse himself.

8. He knows better. He's lying to Trump's base. That's all. Preserving Republican votes.

This is the hill that defines his legacy. We'll find out what he's made of.

9. First, he does not preside over the impeachment isn't that W bushes lackey' s job?

Not that I expect that partisan tool to do anything fairly. What with his citizen united decision. Chief Roberts is not a trustworthy representative of the US Constitution.

What more can the shorty Putin's puppets do? They will find him not guilty. They will then pretend Trumpy Dumpy is not a criminal and most of Americans will go along.....And Shorty the mobster Putin will win in the Senate again.

And Dumpy Trumpy's reign of terror will continue.

16. He's coordinating with Russian mobsters and the Kremlin as well

"How a McConnell-backed effort to lift Russian sanctions boosted a Kentucky project

In January, as the Senate debated whether to permit the Trump administration to lift sanctions on Russia’s largest aluminum producer, two men with millions of dollars riding on the outcome met for dinner at a restaurant in Zurich.

On one side of the table sat the head of sales for Rusal, the Russian aluminum producer that would benefit most immediately from a favorable Senate vote. The U.S. government had imposed sanctions on Rusal as part of a campaign to punish Russia for “malign activity around the globe,” including attempts to sway the 2016 presidential election.

On the other side sat Craig Bouchard, an American entrepreneur who had gained favor with officials in Kentucky, the home state of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Bouchard was trying to build the first new aluminum-rolling mill in the United States in nearly four decades, in a corner of northeastern Kentucky ravaged by job losses and the opioid epidemic — a project that stood to benefit enormously if Rusal were able to get involved.
.....

Within weeks, the U.S. government had formally lifted sanctions on Rusal, citing a deal with the company that reduced the ownership interest of its Kremlin-linked founder, Oleg Deripaska. And three months later, Rusal announced plans for an extraordinary partnership with Bouchard’s company, providing $200 million in capital to buy a 40 percent stake in the new aluminum plant in Ashland, Ky. — a project Gov. Matt Bevin (R) boasted was “as significant as any economic deal ever made in the history of Kentucky.”.......(more at link)

the defense of Bill Clinton was run by Clinton's attorneys and NOT Senate Democrats.

21. TBH I'm not sure if I can tell

if this is a bad thing or a good thing for us. I doubt that it is procedural or what he should be doing but, I mean, it's not like Trump's legal team is "gangbusters" either.
