    The whistleblower’s identity seems pretty irrelevant at this point, but Trump really wants a villain and he is trying to put a face on this whistleblower to have a new hate figure for conservative media to fulminate about deep state conspiracies against the president

    3 days, 5 transcripts: What we’ve learned from recently released impeachment depositions


    And that quote summarizes how Trump operates. Trump always wants a villain and always wants to play the victim.

    Why does Trump want a villain? So he can have a public target to attack, to distract his followers and the narrow ranks of the undecided from the actual testimony of Trump's attempts to bribe/coerce Ukraine into a public announcement into an investigation of his political rival.

    Trump as always- believes his 'bully pulpit' authorizes him to bully on a grander scale than he could before.

    Hmmm... not really familiar with "VOX," but I see it's a full member of the DEMOCRAT PROPAGANDA WING posting unhinged TDS bull shit like that online.

    Trump is doing twice the job that Obama could even dream of in spite of all the Democrat obstruction and resistance. Trump laughs when Democrats foam at the mouth or when they shit themselves thinking they finally have him cornered. Democrats are like children. Dumb ones.

    Well if he needs a villain he doesn't have to look very far. Plenty of them in the Democratic Party.

    Did you know that the same guy that runs Daily Kos is one of the folks that founded Vox? :113:

    Vox commonly does a partnership with Obama on Netflix propaganda too. . .

    So. . . tell me why I should take any of this as unbiased journalism? :dunno:

    If he needs a villain, all he needs to do is look in the mirror.

    I think everyone here has made up their minds about the pending impeachment.

    There are probably a lot of people in middle America who have not made up their minds, and who may watch the live hearings next week and then decide.

    But everyone on this forum has made up their minds, I think.

    I was thinking about starting a 30-second elevator speech topic, where everyone can post their summary of where they stand. At this point, all we are doing is spitting and clawing at each other.

    Oh I am sorry- I didn't realize that Kavanaugh no longer has any balls.

    What a tragic situation.

    Not sure why you would want that to happen to someone else.
