    I've heard that there are about 30 Republicans ready to convict the summbich if the ballot was secret. Don't know anything about the rules governing the situation, but I would think that if there's any way to hold a secret ballot, those same Republicans - if they exist - would insist upon it.

    How very unsurprising. Lev has a long history of participation in corruption.
    "Giuliani looks for corruption everywhere he goes" - Donald Trump

    When the Senate trial happens I will be dumbstruck if the Dems don't lean very heavily indeed on the fact you noted atop this page; Trump didn't give a flying fuck about actual investigations of any sort, he just wanted to smear Uncle Joe using a foreign leader, and exerted every bit of leverage at his disposal to make said leader do what he (Trump) wanted.
    Not just that, he didn't give a flying fuck about the implications for US National Security and by his actions may have made National Security less secure. A total dereliction of duty.

    Leftists are insane. First, they claim, "We need to stop giving foreign aid to other countries! It's a waste of money! We need that money for America!" Then it's, "How dare Trump not give them aid!"

    (Even though Trump didn't withhold the aid, leftists think he did and are mad about this.)


    It's all just a pile of Schiff.
    How's the flat earth proof coming along?
    That's the question for leftists who think Trump is sunk with no evidence of a quid pro quo.

    I read somewhere that if three GOP senators demanded a secret ballot, McConnell would have to go along.

    QFT

    Republicans will argue that since the president sets foreign policy, the worst you can accuse him of is making decisions that democrats don't like. Obama made bad decisions. The worst decisions. Terrible decisions. Trump decisions are perfect decisions. Dems hate the decisions, proving that they are perfect decisions, and blah blah blah.

    The likes of these types do not work with things like "proof" or "facts"... the words "I do not believe in facts" literally came out of the mouth of one of these types (unfortunately, my FiL). So they will pick and choose what they like to believe based on how the belief makes them feel. Having objective reasons to believe something does not compute with them. They are a sufficiently small number to ignore... like the flat earthers.

    The guy who supported Trump so much he gave trump a million dollars said he witnessed and was ordered to follow through on the QPQ.

    "There are none so blind as those who will not see." I remember reading that somewhere.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Wow, you really think that?

    Uh, leftists don’t say that.
    That’s a GOP talking point.


    Then it's, "How dare Trump not give them aid!"

    (Even though Trump didn't withhold the aid, leftists think he did and are mad about this.)
    He did withhold the aid - for months, critical months.
    Only paid up when he got caught.





    It's all just a pile of Schiff.
    Oh how very mature you and the President are.

    You don't even realize that the GOP always supports giving foreign aid to other countries. Leftists hate it.
