  1. Maybe, but it depends on how many people committed crimes, for all we know, the whole Trump administration is corrupt.
  2. It might goes as long as Whitewater or Benghazi, it's too early to tell.
  3. President Trump’s two sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, who were born into wealth and work at a company their grandfather founded, have spent the last few weeks contending for the title of World’s Least Self-Aware Person. First, one of them goes on TV or Twitter and attacks Hunter Biden for trading on his father’s name, brushing aside their own histories of doing the same. Then the other one goes on TV or Twitter and wags their finger at Joe Biden allowing his son to profit off his name, never mentioning that their sister and brother-in-law are senior White House officials whose companies are raking in cash as they help craft U.S. policy. With each appearance, the irony and sanctimony are ratcheted up. The brotherly competition reached its apex Wednesday night when Don Jr., who became an executive vice-president at his father’s company at the age of 23, appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show and said this: “When you’re the father and your son’s entire career is dependent on that, they own you.” Don Jr. won. He is the World’s Least Self-Aware Person — a man who shares his name with the president and routinely profits off his father’s position in the White House is criticizing someone else for being “dependent” on his father. Where would Donald Trump Jr. be if his name was not Donald Trump Jr.? Probably not on TV. Not giving $50,000 speeches. And certainly not anywhere close to the White House. http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/10/donald-trump-jr-attacks-hunter-and-joe-biden-for-nepotism.html
  4. Well, that won't matter, because the Senate will be watching the polls under a microscope. It will go the way the people want it to.

    Dropping Like Flies, Now There Are Just 2 Amigos

    Turning state's evidence would be hard any other way.
  6. Please see the Constitution for the rules covering an impeachment. Trump gets his opportunity to defend himself in the Senate, the biggest liar in politics on earth, will be able to call witnesses when his trial comes up. BTW, the secret meeting loophole was put in place by Republicans looking to hang Hillary Clinton. She was found innocent 9 times, I doubt Trump will be as lucky.
  7. Then someone had better double their SS protection.
  8. Energy Secretary Rick Perry, 1 of the '3 amigos' on Ukraine, resigns Energy Secretary Rick Perry, described by colleagues as one of the "three amigos" on U.S. policy on Ukraine, informed President Donald Trump on Thursday that he plans to resign, according to two senior administration officials with direct knowledge of the matter. A day of departure has not been determined. The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, did not provide an immediate explanation on why he was leaving. Perry, who was Texas' longest serving governor and ran against Trump for president in 2016 before joining his administration, has not been accused of any wrongdoing. He also has insisted that actions he took regarding Ukraine were intended to advance U.S. interests in the region – namely addressing government corruption and encouraging American companies to do business there. In recent weeks, Perry has repeatedly knocked down suggestions that he planned to resign, including telling the Wall Street Journal in an interview published Wednesday that he planned to still be in the job on Thanksgiving.

  9. That's okay with me. When this is done, Dog will have to look up his old friend Happy Jack, to find the best cruise bargains for his ride out of town.
  10. Sorry for the late reply. I agree with you, the only way Trump goes down in the Senate is by 100% absolutely solid evidence of a crime. Even then, there will Senators who refuse to accept the truth. I have news for them, if there is a high preference for conviction the public backlash by an electorate solidly convinced he needs to be removed, will be like a drone hitting the Senate like an Afghanistan wedding party.

    That letter .... Hey Trumpists your boy is bonkers

    As evadent. that would be Eisenhower era teachers.
  12. GOP colleague assails Lindsey Graham's sign-on letter to acquit Trump as 'dumbest' idea ever South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham is in overdrive to protect his own 2020 reelection chances even as he criticizes Donald Trump's disastrous withdrawal of troops from Syria. So Graham floated the idea of sending a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi pledging that the Republican caucus would never vote to remove Trump from office. In other words, Senate Republicans would take a pledge prejudging their vote before seeing really any of the evidence Democrats have turned up in a cascade of interviews from career public servants. Frankly, the idea kind of flopped. Sure, Lindsey needs to bear hug Trump on the way to reelection, but it's a pretty terrible idea for any vulnerable Republican senators facing reelection in tougher states like Maine, Colorado, or Arizona. One GOP senator anonymously told The Hill it was “one of the dumbest ideas I’ve ever heard from Lindsey," adding that it could "backfire" if there weren't enough signatures supporting Trump. It would also put some of Graham's fellow 2020 senators in the position of facing Trump’s wrath if they don't sign on (because Trump’s just that dumb). That surely wouldn't help the caucus. Even some unlikely characters stepped forward to question the wisdom of such a letter, including Sens. Jim Risch of Idaho, Tom Cotton of Arkansas, and Roy Blunt of Missouri. Wow, really going over like a lead balloon there, Lindsey. Graham pitched the letter during a caucus lunch and is following through with trying to get signatures. If that letter never sees the light of day, you can bet it's because the lack of GOP support would be embarrassing for Trump. But if it does surface, it's just one more thing to tar the GOP caucus with for putting party over country. Graham acknowledged that his latest brainchild didn't get the greatest reception. “Some people didn’t like the approach and I’m taking their concerns under advisement. And I’ll do what I need to do,” he said. In other words, he'll do what he needs to do to get reelected—everyone else is on their own. https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2019/10/17/1893131/-GOP-colleague-assails-Lindsey-Graham-s-sign-on-letter-to-acquit-Trump-as-dumbest-idea-ever

    English teachers are like that. letters written like an 8 year old by a 74 year old man, somehow rankles the shit out of them.
