The impeachment process IS the due process, you twit.

He’s just appealing to his base. They get re-invigorated at such words.

Polls are not looking better on the impeachment front for Trump and his GOP stooges.

Well, they can impeach the president if he does something impeachable, like, umm, I dunno. Can't think of an example off the top of my head.

Trumps game plan now is just to say eff it and to fully appeal to his hardcore base. Lets be honest, they aren't going to know what's legal or not illegal, or what is actually against the constitution and what isn't. Trumps going to lie through his teeth and tell them how it's supposed to go, and they'll lap it up. It'll just get them to think all the politicians are against him and trying to screw him over, and will just whip them up into a bigger frenzy.

Well, sure, I overstated it. I was more speaking of the fake reformed Trumpists, like Mooch. He'd support Trump again in a second given a chance to have a high profile job.

Or the ones who criticize now because they see a possible window for them, like Romney.

Another day and another diplomat/official testifies on Trump tying aid to his own political gain.

Another day and another round of GOP yelling about no evidence.

The ones like Romney who are looking for a window are the most key in getting rid of him. They are the ones who will either primary him or convince senators to impeach.

Yup. Once again, this is pretty damning stuff. Not that the GOP will do anything about if of course.

The top US diplomat in Ukraine, Bill Taylor, testified behind closed doors Tuesday as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry led by House Democrats. In his opening statement, Taylor gave an account of his concern, beginning in August of this year, that the US relationship with Ukraine "was being fundamentally undermined by an irregular, informal channel of U.S. policy-making" led by President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani.

In the 15-page statement obtained by CNN, Taylor corroborated many of the claims made by the intelligence community's whistleblower, whose complaint and subsequent inspector general's report prompted the impeachment inquiry.

Edward Snowden on Joe Rogans podcast. Still working through it but I've found Snowden really interesting so far.

Bold new strategy: "I withheld the aid, but Ukraine didn't know it was a grift, so yeah!"

Not surprising. The entire world is well aware of just how corrupt Trump and the entire GOP are and how they are negatively affecting the entire world. If you have had all the evidence presented to you and still support him, you are a god damn hopeless idiot and there is nothing to debate about.

Also, if I can't see you you can't impeach me. Look it up. It's in the Constitution.

It's amazing to listen to faux news and every single Republican and WH admin staff etc. trot out the narrative today, that there was no quid pro quo because Ukraine did not know that Trump was holding up funds.

You have to hand it to them though, they know their audience and all the magas aren't big on reasoning, so repeating the same message, will convince them Trump did nothing wrong.

Doesn't even matter if there was a quid pro quo. The ask for help itself was bad enough.

Trump just now lifts sanctions on Turkey, says Turkey will take care of ISIS and leaves some soldiers in Syria to protect oil, which he'll figure out what to do with sometime later.

The ME has gone from being a cluster #### to a ####ing cluster ####.

I thought Jared was going to bring peace to the ME.

It is really not going to be hard for a journalist to prove that Ukraine did, in fact, very much know about the aid being held up. By then, the weak talking point will have morphed once more.

La plus ca change. They're like fifth graders.
