    Ken Starr's testimony was outstanding. He very carefully explained how the House's Articles had no constitutional basis.
    The president has the authority to conduct foreign policy, period. The "Rodino Rule" was violated in that for an impeachment to be justified it MUST be bi-partisan. Nixon's was, and Clinton's was, but Trump's was not.

    Article-2 is simply void because the subpoenas issued before Resolution 660, the impeachment by the full House are not constitutional. Nancy has no authority to start an impeachment inquiry without the full House vote. Further, Trump has every legal right to "due process" and can have the courts evaluate subpoenas and executive privilege claims.

    The defense could have rested right after Ken Starr's summary. It was fantastic.
    Starr advised that a crime is essential based on the Constitution in order for the senate to remove a president, and Trump committed no crime.

    Bolton's testimony is irrelevant, because it would not allege a crime. No witnesses are needed. The fat lady just sang.

    It was a most excellent talk and a pretty good history lesson too.
    It brought the notion to my mind that those responsible for this farce should be punished so this kind of silly shit isn't repeated in the future.

    Repubs must impeach the next Prog president as soon as they can. All of this because Progs are pizzed off about the 2016 election. If Repubs do not give them push back, we will end up a banana republic.

    Their claims of outrage ring shallow

    Trombies see and hear what they wish to see and hear.

    Starr was boring and professorial as he laid out no defense of Trump whatsoever.

    The idea that we should not have impeachment as a check on a corrupt president
    is grade A level stupid. And that is what he just claimed.

    Morons eat that shit up.

    I think it would be better if we just jailed the silly shits responsible for the silly shit. The list begins with Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler in the least. Or maybe Pelosi and all of dumbass impeachment managers.
