Why would any GOP Senator support witnesses when they know it can only hurt the GOP?

    I don't get it. This is all designed to hurt Trump and the GOP in House and Senate elections in November. So why would someone demand Bolton, someone who they know is protected by Executive Privilege; be heard in an impeachment without a crime?

    Also, is there any way someone challenges Romney in Utah from the GOP side?

    I don't know, I just see a few weak GOP senators who are wishy washy. You have the same Establishment politicians who know in their hearts that this cannot reach the level of impeachment, or you won't ever have a president survive opposition House.

    Consider the spying used to get Trump in this spot in the first place. This can't be good for the U.S Republic. Which means, it can't be good for the West.

    I think Romney needed a bona fide challenger. He is just too weak for the GOP that is reaching out to a broader voting base and fighting China. His weakness gives the green light for others to be weak, since he had so much pull in the past.

    Fairness? Honor? Impartial justice? Constitution? Legacy?

    I doubt that, there is no way he could believe that.

    Trump has a 100k+ list for his rally in NJ tomorrow. They are lining up already tonight. Romney running against would be a one sided blood bath, the GOP would be decimated across the board, mark my words. You could run him against any Dem and he loses.

    The GOP don't understand, the Neo-Con era is over The only reason the GOP have the senate, barely lost the House and, a massive war chest is because of Trump. Hell, if Trump were removed, he could openly endorse the Dems or an Independent and create a bigger crash in the party than the 1929 stock crash. They'd take longer to recover.

    So many GOP voters just view their party reps as unreliable and going against their issues. Hurting their own party would be viewed as a betrayal for their own Establishment. There would be a backlash.

    I think Dersh laid out why these allegations aren't impeachable. It doesn't come close to rising to this, especially considering other presidents activities.
