Why didn't House Democrats follow normal protocol to call impeachment witnesses?

    They issued a subpoena to Mulvaney, who refused to comply. Clearly, Executive Privilege could be used as the reason. But Trump's attorneys argue that the subpoena was invalid because the underlying reason for issuing it was the "impeachment inquiry", but the problem with that is Nazi Pelousy never held the required vote to implement an impeachment inquiry.

    The reason for refusing to comply doesn't matter. Normal protocol when a subpoena is denied is to take it to the courts to get a ruling.

    Why didn't Nazi and her House Clowns follow normal protocol? The withdrew the Muclvaney subpeona and did not go to court. Instead, they rushed a vote and are now over at the Senate begging jurors to conduct an investigation that was their responsibility.

    Board Dimwingers refuse to acknowledge the responsibility for not having the witnesses they now claim is crucial to their "overwhelming" case is on the House Clowns. Not Trump. Not the Senate.

    Once again, don't argue whether or not the reason for challenging the subpoena is valid. That will get nothing done here. That's is now a question for the courts. Dimwingers refused to go to the courts.

    So stop trying to blame Trump and the Senate for the failures of your House Clowns to do their job.

    Because this is about more than Just President Trump. They are trying to reduce The Presidency to something akin to a Prime Minister beholden to a House of Lords.

    It's not about Proof, or Truth, or even about Impeachment

    It is hatred of Trump simply because he beat Hitlery in 2016. He isn't part of the entrenched DC swamp.

    I predict there won't be many leftist show up to try to explain why the House Clowns refused to follow protocol and do their job since I took blaming Trump and the Senate off the table.:5_1_12024:

    We know what Trumpybear did and why. We know Trumpublicans in the Senate will never convict ol'Trumpybear no matter who appears or what they say. Getting Trumpublican hypocrisy front an center and bashing their candidates with it till November is the only alternative.

    Enjoy the show.

    So, you have nothing to offer on the subject of YOUR House Clowns failing to do their job.

    Got it.

    The Dems don't have facts and evidence, all they have is false allegations and now that they're standing there empty handed, the only hope they have is to convince the electorate that the Senate is engaging in a "coverup". They'll spend their entire 24 hours trying to make that case, only to have it completely dismantled by the Trump team which will make hamburger out of Schiff and Nadler when they get THEIR 24 hours. This is what happens when you try to convict an innocent man who has good attorneys who know how to fight back.

    A 12 hour saturation of Schittforbrains was more than even the Senate could take. They were restless. He was boring and particularly whiny.

    When you have no case, you have to fill time.

    Pencil Neck is doing it by repeated "cheater" about 400 times.
