Skip to comments.Impeachment: Democrats will begin to formalize their charges against Trump in Monday's hearing (Schiff doesn't appear)

The Democrats' drive to impeach President Donald Trump kicks into high gear Monday with a hearing designed for Democrats to make their case against the President.
Lawyers for the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees will make opening arguments and present the evidence before facing questions from the Judiciary panel -- a lengthy event that's likely to be the final public hearing before Democrats take up articles of impeachment.
The hearing sets the stage for a two-week stretch, in which Democrats are expected to introduce impeachment articles , debate and approve them in the Judiciary Committee and then take a vote on the House floor that could make Trump the third President in US history to be impeached.
Democrats say the case against Trump is clear.

Exactly who are the Congressmembers going to question in todays Hearsaying of a report of hearsayings? There is no factual testimony here. Its all argument. Similar to closing arguments in a trial which has had ZERO factual witnesses at any point in the non-process.
Charges? How about the ever popular “allegations”? Will there be a bow on this package? Pretty sure they don’t really want to open this can of worms. Guess they think the Senate will shut it down and they won’t have to testify or have others they don’t really want to see the light of day testify? I REALLY don’t like these people.
The Toad on the Stump demonstrates, with no attempt at fairness or attempt at following the Houses own rules, the exact definition of the Tyranny of the Majority the Framers of the Constitution and the Founders of our country were so fearful of, the very reason they created a Republic and put in as many checks and balances as possible. It is why they feared a raw democracy. Yet here we see it in action.
I think it would be great if Justice was served to these seditious fraud criminals during their “hearing”.
Nadler said they will NOW hear evidence from witnesses. How can he say that with a straight face? They are attorneys, they are not witnesses to anything!
Matt Gaetz (FL) had an outburst and he was absolutely correct - 4 hours of wasted time with staffers. WHY can’t/don’t the Republicans just walk out of the room and refuse to participate in this farce? Just leave and refuse to come back. This is a rehash of what the other witnesses have said. Who on earth believes that repeating this crapola over and over is going to change anything?
WALK OUT!!! Trump is wrong - it’s not a hoax. It’s not bogus. It’s a farce!
Time to apply the 25th to the Dims. They ain’t anywhere near in a sane frame of mind.
Oh, a dreamer I see. LOL! Yeah it would be nice but it might “tear the country apart!” if that happened.
What are we going to get? Impeachment engineered, tailor made by the Washington Post? Is this jerk going to get his arguments from that rag?
Schiff is probably hiding with Hunter Biden.
“Nadless is avoiding House rules specifically stating that there will be a minority hearing. I’ve never seen anything like it. Schiffty isn’t there to back up his own report. Total scam.”
As much as we scoff at the left, they have been masterful in their drive to destroy this country. They infested and seized control of the educational system. This gave rise to a news media that was fully indoctrinated. Now we have a news media so biased that it would make Pravda blush.
At the same time, the left has used this media to cast any right leaning source as the devil’s megaphone. Mention Fox as a source and eyes roll.
The left is evil, but not stupid. They are playing the long game, and they have established a solid base. Our future beyond President Trump is not bright.
This is looking like the French Revolution, where the Assembly had no rules and just did whatever it wanted, based on the whims of whoever was currently powerful.
Interesting that Nadler can have the exact words he needs to reject Bigg’s Point of Order. How on earth does that happen?
I will never get over the opposition believing that the remark President Trump made about Hillary’s 30,000+ emails was anything but a joke. It had already been reported that they’d been destroyed and he was taking a shot at that story by saying “perhaps the Russians” could find them.
OR perhaps they do know how stupid it is to keep harping on that and just don’t care; counting on the public not to GET IT!
And with Epstein’s girl friend.
Schiff For Brains is way too busy rewriting the Horowitz Report like he did the phone call transcript
We need to formalize charges against the Deep State Traitors and Subversives. It’s time for Real Americans to rise up and put down this insurrection.
HAHAHAHAHA you are so right!
Even the terrorist who killed soldiers in Florida is called a suspect!
And the Rats are using gross generalities in describing the ALLEGED crimes by POTUS. Such as abuse of power. And there is not ONE material witness who firsthand heard Trump demanding Quid Pro Quo. Only ONE man actually talked to both Trump and leader of Ukraine...Ambassador Sondland.
And Sondland testified during the hearings “TRUMP SAID HE WANTED NOTHING, THERE IS NO QUID PRO QUO, JUST TELL HIM TO DO THE RIGHT THING ABOUT CORRUPTION”.
We need to bring back dueling for the House and Senate.
The case is clear. Its a case of totalitarianism. The democrats regard themselves as being what is. All else is not and is thusly illegal. They dont need any law other than the illegality of their opponents. No intellectual thought required, no debate, and no dissent.
Exact words written on a note card,no less.
He made notes for every occasion and still has to be told the correct parliamentary procedures by a staffer.
Guys a joke.
