Day 1110


(Matt Kiser) #1

What happened today? House impeachment managers and Trump’s lawyers delivered their closing arguments in the Senate impeachment trial. Adam Schiff, the lead House manager, used his closing arguments to warn Republican senators that “It is midnight in Washington” and that “You can’t trust this president to do the right thing, not for one minute, not for one election, not for the sake of our country, you just can’t. He will not change and you know it. […] A man without character or ethical compass will never find his way.” Schiff added: “History will not be kind to Donald Trump.” Trump’s lawyers, meanwhile, urged senators to “stand firm” and “leave it to the voters.”

The Impeachment of President Donald J. Trump
(David Bythewood) #2

Rand Paul outed the whistleblower (or who people think it is) again today.




(David Bythewood) #3

Susan Collins is deeply concerned and feels Trump has learned his lesson and so will vote to acquit. Deeply concerned.

I am sure we’ll remember in November how deeply concerned she was when she is voted out.

02/04/20 Watch: Senate Session

Senators will speak for up to 10 minutes each on the articles of impeachment against President Trump - abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Wasn’t going to post until this became actually news worthy.

Watch: Kentucky Senator Rand Paul to Vote to Acquit President Trump

Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul speaks about his decision to vote to acquit President Trump and discusses some theories about the origins of the investigation into the president. He also talks about the erosion of civil liberties in the U.S., and he reads the question that was rejected during the impeachment trial by Chief Justice Roberts that names the alleged whistle blower.

He wants to allow the President to use the power of his office to shake down allies for personal favors but is howling about FISA court reforms, like they actually matter in this debate. The whistle-blower stuff is just dangerous for that person.
