Skip to comments.Democrats' impeachment formula (2+2=4) is easy math

The plot is intricate, but the math is simple.
The latter requires senators and the public to understand only that "two plus two equals four," Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the lead House manager in President Donald Trump's Senate impeachment trial, said Wednesday.
That basic math is all it takes, he argued, to conclude that Trump prioritized his own interests over national security by using foreign aid as leverage to force Ukraine into helping his re-election effort. The Ukrainians knew the score "they're not stupid," Schiff said and he left unspoken his thoughts on the intellectual capacity of senators who couldn't or wouldn't perform the same addition with the facts in front of them.
And yet Schiff and his fellow House prosecutors also began to lay out labyrinthine details that punched home the thoroughness of the record against a president who appeared to have boasted earlier in the day that he is withholding more evidence from Congress and the public. It was the first time and, because the prosecutors repeated the facts, the second, third and fourth times that the full timeline had been presented, along with videotaped testimony from the House's investigation, from end to end.
The evidence was "overwhelming," Carol Lam, a former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of California, said on NBC as the Senate broke for dinner Wednesday night.
The recitation of appendix-like particulars may have sounded arcane, but they were necessary to support the allegations in the two articles of impeachment the House approved last month.

FLASHBACK, 2018: Joe Biden Brags At CFR Meeting About Withholding Aid To Ukraine To Force Firing Of Prosecutor
translation: Hey, America, Adam Schiff thinks you’re STOOOOOOOPID!
More like 0+0=4.
Fifty insinuations and 25 hearsays do not equal one fact.
The evidence was “overwhelming,”
If it is so overwhelming, why do the Dems want to call more witnesses?

Well that’s good enough for me! :)
Haven't seen any evidence or witness testimony that Trump asked Ukraine to help him in an election.
But Dems keep on saying it.
NBC...Providing cover for the enemies of America.
This is cracking me up. I’ve been on the jury for two long technical trials (both went four weeks). In both cases, after the plaintiff made their case I thought the plaintiff would win easily.
Both times, after hearing both sides, I found against the plaintiff.
Just watch “My Cousin Vinny” explain the prosecution’s case using a playing card. This is what Schiff is doing. Except he’s not very good at it.
Again... WHAT EVIDENCE???
Evidence of what?
The “crime” Shift for brains wants everyone to think is a crime is asking Ukraine for assistance in an investigation.
There is an existing treaty with Ukraine that SPECIFICLY allows either country to ask for assistance. IOW, by law, what the President did was LEGAL.
So their first “2” is actually a zero
The second “2” is based on obstruction when no crime was committed. That is also not possible and is therefore also a zero.
So what the Dems want people to believe is 0 + 0 = 4
Yeah, simple math /sarc
More like 0+0=4.
As simple as natural born citizens not having any other nationality.
Being born a Kenyan, British subject and later becoming an Indonesian citizen disqualifies.
Evidence overwhelming of what?
I have scoured the law and there there is no law that makes “abuse of power” a crime.
But thanks, democrats. You have just REALLY increased the odds of my prediction: From now on EVERY POTUS with a House majority of the opposite party will be impeached. No one lie obozo will get a pass.
There could not be a lower bar than “abuse of power.” obozo did it a dozen times, the easiest example being DACA.
You heard it here first.
Yeah, it is simple.
2 = grounds which they don’t have so: 0
2 = actual witnesses to anything, so: + 0
Therefore: their = 4 case = 0 case in reality
Yep, simple math
If you take a pile of number two, and add another pile of number 2- all you have is one big pile of number 2!
Per Jim Jordan, Ukraine didn’t announce an investigation, they got the meeting and they got the aide. It wasn’t 2+2=4; it as 0 for 3.
“The Ukrainians knew the score”
That’s not what they said after the game, making very clear there was no “quid pro quo” nor election-related issue nor even awareness of a “delayed payment”.
The more Impeachment is used the less it will matter to anyone. It will be like calling someone a racist. When everyone is a racist, no one is a racist.
