WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrats in the U.S. Congress took a major step toward impeaching President Donald Trump this week when they agreed on the rules for publicly televised hearings after weeks of testimony behind closed doors. But it is also a step onto more politically perilous terrain for a party seeking to persuade Americans that their cause to remove Republican Trump, who they accuse of abusing his power, is just.

Copy of the transcript.
LT Col Clown boy, the Democrat star witness this week admitted in his testimony the transcript is complete and accurate. Clown boys boss just testified yesterday there is nothing at all illegal or improper in the call.
In any sane world this kills the Democrat Fascist clown show in the US House dead. But the DC Swamp, and their mindless toadies in the Fake News, dont live in a sane world anymore.
It now turns out this impeachment scam is all about the DC Swamp criminals trying to divert attention off the AG current criminal investigation. The whistle blower is one of the prime agents in the original Russian collusion fraud.
No wonder they were all panicked by the Ukrainian call, they knew the noose was being slipped over their heads.
I’ve NEVER EVER seen such denial and living in total oblivion as the dems and msm are right now.
NOT NEARLY enough people care.
They are doing NOTHING in this congress.
They’ve not made a DENT in Trump. In fact they make him more popular.
Social Media exists now so whatever they try to lie about, Trump can crush with a few seconds of typing and sending.
Just wow. Talk about living in a box. A SMALL black box. With no light.
Are taxpayers paying for this? It should be the democrat party paying for it and it should be held at the holiday inn.
The media will edit the hearings as the Dems want.
Will be interesting to watch the Rs try to balance things.
This is a LOSING battle unless Trump himself goes on TV in a fireside chat, reads the transcript and CLEARLY explains to America's dimwits that this is ALL A SHAM.. A SEQUEL TO MUELLER INVESTIGATION.. ANOTHER "INSURANCE POLICY" BY THE DEEP STATE.. THAT DEMOCRATS ARE "IMPEACH-O-CRATS" WHO HAVE DONE NOTHING FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE OTHER THAN FOCUS ON REMOVING THE MAN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CHOSE TO BE THEIR PRESIDENT!!!
Ask Schiff on national television "Where is the evidence you promised for nearly the last 3 YEARS of my being a Russian operative?"
Show HANNITY'S video where DEEP STATE MEDIA OPERATIVES mention "IMPEACH" and "IMPEACHMENT" NUMEROUS TIMES SINCE THE DAY OF TRUMP'S INAUGURATION!
I want the term IMPEACH-O-CRATS to grow legs!!!
How many times will Dems say “our sacred duty and honor” “Our sworn mission to uphold law and show that no one is above the law even the president” “to continue and preserve the work of the Founding Fathers”....
Could have one of those “Hi,Bob” beers for Bob Newhart or similar drinking challenges. Maybe every time they say “Let me be clear”. (I don’t drink so don’t know other game names.)
Will the American people be in tears of pride and admiration or bellowing with laughter at the ridiculous exaggerations by the pandering power hungry Dems?
And as they said in Dodgeball “I think I might watch the pre-exhibition season curling tryouts.”
CBS commie news is on this hour interviewing Biden about Trump’s cover up, and saying independents no longer believe Trump. Unfortunately I start screaming at the TV and whatever scumbag is talking.
You'll have to wait for it to hit the Senate, if it ever goes that far. Their "rules" still give the Dim committee chairs veto rights on questions and everything else.
I hope that somewhere in the bowels of the Pentagon, someone is drawing up a list of UCMJ Articles violations for that pasty little lard ass to get nailed with.
Donald Trump is 100 times more skilled at television as the Democrats, and with the power of President Trump he is going to wup ‘em.
The House Rs will be trying to show the unfairness of the hearings. They’ll get a lot of gaveling, maybe the audience will see why.
But yes, until the Senate it will be a Star Chamber production.
Part of the plan. The secret hearings were used to vet their witnesses . Now they know what questions the Republicans will ask and will be ready. The rats will run the hearings and the networks will promote them. The rats have shredded the Republicans here. While the Rs cried about the process the rats were strategizing with the networks for the biggest bang, checkmate. This is how it looks to me.
The Dems have already lost and they know it.
Their options now are to drag this BS out until people get tired of it and lose interest in how it all began.
“Ahead of the hearings, organizations including AT&Ts CNN and Comcasts NBC News and cable news channels have already launched new features such as podcasts to cover the historic event.”
Knock yourselves out @sshats.
“How many times will Dems say our sacred duty and honor Our sworn mission to uphold law and show that no one is above the law even the president to continue and preserve the work of the Founding Fathers”
can’t wait for the brakes to come to a screeching halt and the dying lying leftist fake stream enemedia and their Democrat Party subsidiary do a 180 on the above when the Barr/Durham indictments finally come down ... suddenly “no one is above he law” will become “witch hunt” and “political persecution” ...
Yesterday DEMs explained they won’t be having witness testimony be public - the hearings to which the “inquiry” referred will be the judiciary committee writing up the articles of impeachment. ROFL ;)
A partisan vendetta is a historic event? Yeah, sure. A hate fest from the unhinged Left to be televised to the entire country.
Without a probable crime thats cause to impeach. LOL
Relax. Trump’s got this.
