this is nothing but an atrocity
using lawfare to remove an ELECTED PRESIDENT.
If they are not lying, and they actually believe he is guilty of anything, then how did they already know just before, and on Inauguration Day, that he was guilty and had to be impeached and removed? He hadn't had a chance to do anything yet. So prejudice and a fraud.
I agree. Someone should move for immediate dismissal with prejudice, vote, dismiss and spare us this national embarrassment and headache.
More bothersome, is they are not even using the law, they are using a perverted, patently defective reading of the Constitution. Impeachment is not a tool for resolving political disputes.
If the R's continue after hearing the D's opening statement they had better have a plan that damages the D's far beyond what now apparent.
