Republican senators take oath——what a joke!

Joaniepoanie

Most of them are totally lying as they raise their hands to take the oath since they’ve long since protected Trump in every way and will no doubt acquit him no matter how much evidence of his guilt is presented.

The nation is watching when we will be allowed. They plan to restrict the press and cameras.

Sen. Roy Blunt said Tuesday that there will be restrictions to public and press access during President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, including periods when the Senate chamber is cleared of reporters.

The bulk of the trial will be broadcast on television. But during certain periods of debate, the Senate will go into closed session under its impeachment rules, the Missouri Republican told reporters.

“I mean closed session. I mean there will be nobody there but senators and essential staff. No cameras, no C-Span, no coverage, what the rules say happened last time,” said Blunt, the Senate Rules chairman and a member of Senate GOP leadership, referring to restrictions in place during former President Bill Clinton’s 1999 trial


Clinton’s trial had sensitive sexual testimony, not true of this impeachment.

No doubt the next Dem President will be impeached if the Reps get the House.

That's your Democrats' legacy.

After the dems' basement sham hearings not allowing Rs basic rights, the filthy, disingenuous liars hold a presser saying 'the senate needs to do the right thing and protect its legacy!

What a joke!

The Senate Dem presser was incredible - they all talked about how somber and serious this is (temporarily put those celebration pens down, House Dems - it's an inconsistent look to your somber, sad, sober, prayerful narrative). And, OMG, Harris was one of them - with her weird way of speaking that I think ended her presidential run. I hope the GOP doesn't do one of those stage shows today. As I watched the Dems, I thought - just let them bury themselves deeper and deeper. I'm hoping McConnell does not do a response presser. Let this Dem presser remain as the most recent news!!!!!

" Let this Dem presser remain as the most recent news!!!!!"

Perhaps the most recent news on FOX. The most recent news on CNN is much broader :

  • The DNI asking Congress not to make the upcoming intelligenge breifings public because it will upset the toddler in chief.
  • The findings of the Office of Accountability that Trump broke the law
  • The statement by Ukraine that they are opening an investigation...into Trump's buddies

Wow...the right is already getting ready to impeach an unknown future Dem prez. What impressive critical thinking skills and logic.

The evidence has been closing in on Trump since day one and continues. He got himself impeached. He is a criminal and has been his whole life. He is always the perpetrator. He is never a victim.

How the likes of McConnell and Graham could take the oath and sign without an ounce of shame is astounding.

Oh sure there were WMD -- Bush had every reason to hide that fact after US went into Iraq on the pretext of WMD. And of course Obama would have protected Bush's reputation by not disclosing that there really were WMD. How can we take the above comment seriously?

Obviously this thread triggers a reaction. It’s hard to admit many GOP are corrupted and in danger of eroding our Democracy. They not only knew about Trump’s crimes they are covering them up and partaking in the crimes.

Trump was already impeached for trying to bribe and extort a foreign government to win re-election.

We know the Senate will acquit him because, like Trump, they don’t give a fig about the Constitution, just their own re-elections. As such, If Trump should “win” he will have been granted complete license to behave as a dictator and he will.

Should a future Dem prez commit crimes, abuse power and obstruct justice then of course he should be impeached just like Trump. Dems won’t refuse to accept factual evidence and witness testimony as is the case with Trumpers.

"Clinton’s trial had sensitive sexual testimony, not true of this impeachment."

Not so far, nyuk, there's still time to impeach trump again for paying off his porn star "encounter" via Cohen using campaign funds (shoe on other foot and the repubs would have gobbled that up). Heck, there's still 10 months of trump criminality to surface. The newz can't keep up with it all.

the republican senators are too afraid of trump's nasty tweets and lies. they won't remove him so they might as well name him dictator and go home. under trump they have no power and putin will make sure trump is reelected.

Butbutbut, jp! As Food posted on another thread:

In which case all Senators who have a preference for which party wins
the 2020 presidency, should recuse themselves. Now who’s left?

Graham and McConnell are jurors conspiring with the defendant and stated before the trial even begins they will acquit and see no need for witnesses, testimony, and documents. That is not a trial.

So the accused doesn't have to bother about his trial and he can tell all his cronies not to testify because he doesn't believe it's a legitimate trial. The institutions are failing.

Now I suppose it can all be explained but from here, to simple me it just looks like someone really is above the law; the law is walking on eggs where he is concerned.

yes, the impeachment is an unconstitutional sham and an impartial person would laugh at the crats and throw them out of the room.

Such cowardice would be shameful if there were anything resembling dignity left.

Call the witnesses and ask the questions under oath, hear the testimony.

During the White House signing of the China deal, Trump said, “I could use some good lawyers, right? Oh the hell with it. I just have to suffer along with it like I have all my life.” (From LA Times 1/16]

Pathetic, undignified.

I do remember the House doing their job, indeed I do.

Now the Senate can follow their oath and constitutional duties- if they refuse it will be at their peril.

Yes, and now it is time for the trial phase and someone who didn't testify has agreed to testify. In addition, more details have surfaced. And the president gets a chance to answer to what he is charged.

ETA: Correction made, because some people find it difficult to understand the meaning of a sentence when there is a simple typing error.

Emma ( one comment)- when you bash a republican, hopefully you will do so without error or one might expect to be pointed out by a republican;))
