    Democrats have NOTHING, but they know Biden, Obama and Hillary are CORRUPT Jack*sses, and they're determined to pin what Obama, Biden and Hillary ACTUALLY did on President Trump.

    So now it ISN'T about the PHONE CALL. No it's about all the other lies by Brennan and Obama's butt buddies.

    Don't let Republicans focus on "the phone call". This was a multi-month extortion conspiracy.

    The phone call between Trump and Zelensky was not the basis of the crime. It is one damning piece of evidence of an orchestrated multi-player national security sell out. The crime was carefully formulated and carried out by a team working at Trump's direction and it took place in multiple ways, at multiple times, and in multiple locations. The totality of the evidence must always be front and center



    Damning as it may be, Republicans want to focus on that one phone call because if that is examined outside of its full context, then the impeachment burden of proof rests on how certain words spoken in a single instance are interpreted. That lends itself to a "Trump always talks that way, it may be inappropriate but it isn't impeachable" defense. Republicans want to fight on the grounds of a single phone call, a single "spontaneous" moment in time. We can't let them boil it down to that.

    Right, because they cannot muddy the waters enough with just the phone call because it SPEAKS for ITSELF.

    1. trump's "reign" has been a three year plus, multi part crime.

    He is so dirty that it is hard to keep it all straight...and that is for us here at DU. With the media being so ineffective (half of it peddling non stop propaganda and lies), it is no wonder most of the country - which is likely very misinformed - has no ability to follow along (never mind pay any attention at all).

    We are in bizarre times.
    And yet they still cannot find anything with which to impeach him without using butt hurt career liberal state department employees. Butt hurt that the have been unable to control President Trump so they claim that his decisions and what he has done is somehow "illegal". They can't find anything to impeach him without making sure that the meme that Democrats want known is the only one heard - done by not allowing any conflicting evidence and by not allowing President Trump and Republicans due process.

    Proof he's "dirty"? He WON the election and The HILLYB*TCH lost. And worse he DARES to enact a conservative agenda and he doesn't kiss their ass.

    3. What these Congressional Republicans are missing is...

    ... Trump's using them now ,but if he escapes conviction he'll bypass them in Congress and all judges , then they'll be exposed by trump as corrupt using that as his excuse, and claim absolute power to do anything, anything he wants with no one to stop him. Trump's putin's personal thug here, doing everything he can to please his master by undermining and weaponizing OUR government against us. Barr has already helped him to start using his agency against us.
    The DUmmies are FRANTICALLY working to convince themselves and others of this. It's what you do when you have NOTHING but hate and a determination to bring down a legitimately elected President who isn't from the Jack*ss Party.

    Their arrogance will be their downfall.
    Liberals are divorced from reality and they think it's great. When you live in la la land you're never wrong, it's always the other person/groups fault and you can believe what you want to believe and call it 'truth'.

    defeating hillary is a multi-part crime to them

    Looks like they are losing faith in the phone call as the be-all end-all gotcha that will get President Trump

    Translation: Obfuscate enough by blowing smoke out of our orifices to keep low information folks from realizing we got nothing.

    If by some miracle, all this impeachment fertilizer results in A: an actual impeachment or B: a Democrat victory in 2020, DNC objective achieved. If not, which is the more likely scenario, then the DNC, moonbats, ect will have dried out fertilizer to throw on the fire of their hatred to get them to the 2022 midterms and 2024 elections. Heaven forbid they actually come up with policy proposals that might help their constituents to run on.

    I was home yesterday and watched a few minutes of The 700 Club while channel surfing. Pat Robertson thinks that the dems are just wasting time by impeaching over the stuff with the Ukraine, when the real story is Trump's policies and private business interests in Turkey and his dealings with Erdogen.

    He's senile and all, but Robertson usually is pretty much lock step with the conservatives in the GOP. He supported Trump prior to the pullout of troops from Syria recently.

    They're the ones that started this whole thing based on the phone call, so of course it's going to be the focus. The reason why they don't want it to be the focus anymore is because they know they have nothing. When Trump released the transcript, he blew their plans right to smithereens, and now they've been scrambling in a near panic to find something...anything to impeach Trump on.

    So yeah, we will most certainly be focusing on that call, because a few weeks ago, that's all they seemed to care about.

    Isn't "the phone call" the smoking gun that was a slam-dunk in the impeachment hoop? The sole reason for initiating this fiasco?

    "You have to impeach the President, to find out why the President should be impeached!"

    Goalposts moving, indeed.

    Many of the posts are now proclaiming that as soon as they get his tax returns, they'll finally be able to find something to impeach him on.

    They have actually quit trying to move the goalposts and are playing a completely different sport now.

    Their's have been a two fold plan since the very day Trump won the election.

    A. Find something to impeach Trump on, even if you have to make things up.

    B. Have the investigations and hearings will cause the American public ( voters ) to turn on Trump.

    Their bullshit hasn't been working, as a matter of fact, its turning more people against them.

    And worse, they're under the delusion that the American people want massive tax increases, wide open borders, draconian gun laws and an end to Free Speech.

    The smart Democrats know they're going to lose 2020, the rest are living in fantasy world just like most of DU.

    Posts like that remind me of that Laydeebug nut, who now posts as BaltMike or something like that.

    "Don't let THEM f*cking frame the narrative!!!", "Tether that chicken!", "Don't let them gaslight you!!!". Many more absurdities.
