    Andrew McCarthy: Trump impeachment trial should be postponed until House finishes investigation

    So what we have here is a case where the Democrats claimed to have a "rock solid" case for removal of the President, which was incorporated into two Articles of Impeachment.

    Then the Impeachers realized that there was a lot of additional testimony and evidence that could further their case, and they "demanded" that the additional testimony and evidence be produced during the Senate "trial." But this is nonsense. The Senate trial is intended to asses the case that has been made in the House, and to vote on it.

    If the House thinks the case need bolstering, they should NOT have voted to send the Articles to the Senate, but rather to withdraw them so they could be modified to make the best possible case for removal, based on all the evidence available NOW.

    The fact that they didn't do this says a lot about what this is all about. It is starting to look like one of the main purposes of this whole matter is keeping the Senators tied up in the impeachment trial during what could be the most important campaigning dates of the 2020 primaries - thus assisting Joe Biden in getting the eventual nomination. Clearly, the Movers and Shakers in the Democrat party want Biden as their man.

    But regardless, the failure to recall the Articles in light of "new evidence" exposes a lot about the Democrats' motives and strategy. While Impeachment may be "forever" (in Pelosi's words), so will Trump's triumphant victory in November - and it will expose her as the biggest fool in America's political history.

    This impeachment is the very first that no one takes seriously.

    Well, those of you who are against impeachment just got some good news, you can finally rest now knowing that a law was actually violated by withholding the money.

    GAO concludes Trump administration broke law by withholding Ukraine aid - CNNPolitics

    So I guess, no more using that excuse.

    Money wasn't with held, it was delayed and shortly after, sent in full.

    Furthermore, isn't it the purview of the President to sign or not sign funding? I'm not as informed as you guys, but I do recall that for full budgets that fund the entire U.S government, the President can refuse to sign it. If that is the case for your own citizens, why would it be different for foreign governments receiving US taxpayer funding?

    In fact, I'm sure one of the more isolationists such as Rand Paul could argue that SENDING money, especially if that nation is deemed corrupt, is more of an illegal act than sending it.

    I'm sorry, do you have another source. I just have a really hard time trusting CNN after that admission from Jeff Zucker. I'm sure you understand. You probably wouldn't accept the spin of shit from INFOWARS, right? :dunno:

    An excuse to

    delay it until the "its to close to the election" excuse to kick in.

    This tells you everything you need to know about how the Republicans are trying to protect their criminal President.

    So you don't listen to Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck & Infowars . Because they lie to you every day.

    So why should we believe the GAO over the OMB?
