Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York proposed the structure for a fair and honest trial in a letter to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, an attempt to launch negotiations ahead of House voting this week that is all but certain to result in the president being impeached.

And when I asked you for evidence to support this statement, you post a link to an article where Bolton's lawyer claims he has "relevant new information on Ukraine" -- with no announcement from Bolton and no mention of revenge?
No wonder these quarterly fundraisers last forever nowadays on FR. This place seems to have lost its collective minds.
If you think I’m going to spoon feed you more then I already have, you are barking up the wrong tree. DuckDuckGo is your friend. I try not to get irritated with FRiends, but you are creating an exception.
I asked you to provide any evidence you had to support YOUR statement.
If that bothers you, then so be it. Go ahead and get irritated. That says more about you than about me.
Piss on Schumer! McConnell (if a Chrismas miracle happens and he grows some balls) should say that they are sticking to the same rules that the Democraps in the house used, only Senate Democraps have no say, no witnesses and cannot ask questions that the Senates Republicans that they do not approve of. If by chance they don’t like it, then they hold a vote denouncing the Houses impeachment and vote to denounce the tactics used against the minority party in the House. If they refuse, let them squeal like the pigs that they are and go nuclear on Obama, Clapper, Comey and Hillary. F-em if they don’t like it. Time for them to taste what tyranny looks like on the other side!
They will bring Stormy Daniels, and Lindsey Graham’s homosexual lover. Then the Republican will try to push a vote without any witness’s so none of that stuff will be testified to.
“abuse of power can cover anything....”
Think 2 scoops instead of one :)
If for any reason theres a 50-50 tie in the senate VP Mike Pence casts the deciding vote. Dont think look it up.
Just stop the internal pissing contest already. You are just filling this thread with superfluous BS.
Roberts is compromised...he is in charge of the FISA court and did nothing
He should resign...or at least recluse himself from the case.
McConnell has been in the White House conferring with Trump on how to proceed. I saw a big grin come on his face when he said things were going to come out big Trump. I think the Dems will hammered hard when this is all over.
Well put! I think Bolton will take the Dems by surprise with his testimony in favor of Trump. Bolton knows the Dems are the enemy of the Republic, not Trump.
I don’t think Bolton wants revenge bad enough to do great damage to the country. He still is a patriot first.
I saw lots of speculation and conjecture in that article.
That article was written by two CNN “journalists!”
The Senate should do exactly what shithead did and make up their rules. Dont let them call witnesses.>
Give them some of their own medicine. Do not allow the Dems any witnesses, and hold the trial in a secret chamber where the Dems are not allowed any lawyers, and can only attend certain portions of the testimony without any right of cross examination. KEEP THE TRANSCRIPTS SECRET.
But their "witness list" includes individuals that were not interviewed by the House in their Impeachment inquiry, therefore they do not know what the witnesses may or may not know.
They are attempting to perform more investigation, not to prosecute the case that has been investigated by the House.
But I believe they will call the shots because there is no unity in the Rino Party...
The Democrats will plant their faces on the tv screen and outright spiel, spin and lie right into the camera knowing that we know they are lying...They don't care because their base doesn't care...In fact, their base expects it...They are after all, Democrats...
Republicans for the most part have at least a degree of integrity...They will try to do what's right, even if they lose...
I watched Nadler on tv yeasterday make the claim that Trump was proven to have blackmailed Ukraine into agreeing to investigate Joe Biden...And then with a straight face looking into the camera made the claim that Trump said, 'I (with the emphasis on I) would like you to do a favor for Me (with the emphasis on me)' and no one called him out on the massive lie...
Oh, the dems know that the witnesses will have to say when questioned. The dems have had their buddies at the FBI and NSA monitoring them all along. This is the surprise evidence that the dems are alluding to. They already possess recordings and emails.
The official house vote is 12/20/19 - a Friday of course so they can all go run and hide until after Christmas & New Years.
In an impeachment trial of the President of the United States, Pence is not the presiding officer - that would be the Chief Justice of the United States, John Roberts.
