    House Republicans acknowledged that they have no witnesses and no documents to dispute the main facts concerning President Trump’s impeachable conduct: a demand from Ukraine for dirt on a political rival; withholding of aid vital to Ukraine’s defense against Russia; concealing evidence of the scheme by moving a transcript to a secret server; and threatening the tipster who alerted Congress to gross malfeasance. They admitted all that? Well, in a manner of speaking they did.

    The Post reports:

    House Republicans sent Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) a list of witnesses they want to testify in the impeachment inquiry, including former vice president Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden and the anonymous whistleblower who filed the initial complaint against President Trump. ...
    Schiff is likely to reject many, if not all, of the witnesses from the Republicans’ wish list.

    Hunter Biden lacks any direct knowledge of anything that occurred in the Trump White House, and hence he cannot rebut evidence of Trump’s demand that Ukraine interfere with our election. By Republicans’ own admission, the whistleblower lacks first-hand knowledge of events.

    (“Witnesses who testified out of public view have corroborated the crux of the case against Trump — that he pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate his political rivals — so the Democrats see no need for the whistleblower, who heard the story secondhand, to testify. Three career State Department officials are returning next week for the public hearings.”)

    All Republicans have are distractions, stunts to generate claims of unfairness, and gimmicks to threaten the life and career of the whistleblower. It’s remarkable, really, that they could stipulate to every fact about which the witnesses testified under oath.

    I have yet to see any evidence of quid pro quo. but the rumor mill is saying if there was it was done by Rudy and Trump didn't know anything about it.

    Yes, Rudy will happily let himself get thrown under the bus.

    Have you met Rudy?

    The President of Ukraine backs up Trump's story that there wasn't any quid pro quo involving aid to his country.

    The rest is just smoke and mirrors from the Democrats to Impeach because they know they can't defeat Trump in the 2020 election. ... :cool:

    The Republicans can and should utterly destroy the Stalinists now that we know about Eric Ciaramella and Mark Zaid.

    I have no faith that McConnell will find his balls and do it, but the democrats are vulnerable as never before - destroy the traitor fuckers.

    The President of the Ukraine isn't going to admit he got bullied by POTUS. No foreign leader would admit that.

    You guys are running out of excuses...

    How long will this circus of Democrats doing what they are accusing of Trump continue?

    Put them behind bars already.

    Or in the ground.

    Equal Justice WILL be restored. Barr can do it, or we the people will.

    :rofl:

    {Mark Zaid, one of the attorneys representing the intelligence community whistleblower at the center of the Democrats' ongoing impeachment inquiry, tweeted conspicuously in January 2017 that a "coup has started" and that "impeachment will follow ultimately."}

    'Coup has started,' whistleblower's attorney said in 2017 posts calling for impeachment
