• Well, this is a different situation in that no appeal to a public concern from the Republicans is in play. The testimony given so far claims that the President did and said stuff. The defense on the GOP side does not recognize any of those statements as testimony.

    • One measure of yesterday  were the final comments of the 538 team 

       Mine is I agree with Rick Klein's.Plus the earlier statement 

      "It was like  first game of the world series"

      The regular 538 summary of overall opinion of  impeachment appears to me to be a small lead and...

    • It's possible to make a thoughtful defense of the president that contains rational arguments why he shouldn't be convicted by impeachment. We would consider it and respond with our rational arguments. But you're not capable of thoughtful rational analysis. What amazes me is you don't seem to...

    • A wild card for me is the possibility of " impeachment blow back."  As ,maybe, in 1998 if indeed that's the explanation for 1998.

      Was it a rebuke to the Reps   for high handed interference with  the electorate's god given right to continue to complain about Bill and Hill. There's...

    • The headline should read, The Pentagon won't assist the ongoing Coup Plot, based on their Constitutional duty to protect the Republic and the CIC from all enemies foreign and domestic.A very significant development as was illustrated inversely by another military to Evo Morales.

    • The Nunes gambit is perhaps a factor if Barr backs it up with his "report."
      But that sort of thing works both ways. Verification and that sort of thing. Barr seems to be not onboard with the going down with the ship thing.
      Most Republicans just tried to get by with pointing to their...

    • GOP was all over the map as usual, but the central thrust of the defense, as presented by Nunes, was that Trump was justified in pressuring Zelensky because Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election and the Bidens are corrupt. I guess their hope is too muddy the waters, but I don't see this argument ...

      Pity about Hunter.

    • The republicans are defending Trump's ultimate actions not the subject of the Impeachment his failed attempt

      to misuse for his personal gain the powers that as it happened he ultimately used  more or less correctly.

    • 1 55. Nunez and the minority counsel  attempted to  connect Hunter Biden with  previous corruption by  verbal propinquity. It will work with those who want to believe it and with some who left the room and just came back.

       

      So far so good.

    • Trump has declared publicly "the press is the enemy of the people" more than once. He also said Article 2 says "I can do whatever I want". Both statements violate his oath to protect and preserve the Constitution. Then we had his lawyer claiming his right to shoot people and be immune from...
