    When a man has no honor, you cannot expect him to act honorably. He swore an oath to the Constitution buts breaks that oath on a daily basis. There is no choice but to bring a trial of impeachment to the Senate. Just make sure the facts are irrefutable and understood by the public so that Senators who vote against it are seen as not supporting the law or the Constitution.

    Ignore the GOP – Instead make the case that Trump's ongoing actions like bribery, abuse of power, post a threat to the integrity of the election, breach of national security, trade, etc. Then explain what it will mean to voters and why waiting for the election is dangerous. In public we can talk about issues not included in the articles of impeachment that will make it clear Trump will only escalate. In the Senate the GOP have to decide if letting Trump continue to break the law is worth the risk. They will have to spend a year trailing behind him and prostrating themselves in front of him hoping all the time that his escalation doesn't result in a catastrophe. The alternative – do their job, defend the constitution and convict.

    I got bad news for these dummies: criminals don't get to choose whether they "participate" in their investigations. Trump demanded a seat for his lawyers at the table. The Congress called his bluff. Now Trump is whimpering and whining as he backs away from his own demand.
    Too bad. The process continues, and he lives on in his little cloud of fantasies.

    Hmmm, they complain about the process. Well, the current process was introduced by the republicans and the rest of the process is inscribed into the Constitution so how will you complain about that without looking like a pathetic coward.
    The republicans are cry babies the lot of them. The current rules of the process came from them. What are they complaining for hahaha?

    I am a very liberal person. As horrible as it is with the Ukraine/Russia thing, what is more important to be is the instruction of Congress. Being above even investigation by an equal branch of government is exactly how dictatorships start. This is why democracies have a short life historically.

    He is in England for one. Two, how gracious of Congress to let him show up in the 9th inning. When people like you have already convicted him for a unknown crime no matter what he presents. Then ask him to participate removing his individual rights as a citizen plus his executive rights in order to participate. So Trump can watch the 1 witness to be called to the Democrats 3 witnesses? What American legal process is Congress following? This is as Orwellian as it can get. Dust off your copies of 1984 please. Judge, Jury and Executioner. That is Judge Dread. This is a dystopian comic book come to life. Maybe Sly Stallone can still fit in his movie costume and stand in the hearing. No impartial unpartisan arbiter. Convicted for impeachment in your minds since 2016. Remove all legal defenses a common Citizen would have. Stack the deck with witnesses 3 to 1. Control the tempo and rules in to favor your political endgame? The damage you are doing to our entire system of Government is beyond reproach. This could potentially ruin our society for decades if not indefinitely. Why in the world would he show up, name me one fool that would.

    Get real, Matthew Miller. I think Trump should be impeached on the basis of these hearings. I think he's committed at least a half dozen other impeachable offenses. But to say that Democrats are "moving quickly to be fair to the President" is just ludicrous. You look like those conservative shills on FOX. Your blind partisanship makes me sick and we are in the same party. MSNBC should not have this panelist back, despite his impressive former position. Arguments like the one he presented here aren't helpful. In fact, they're an embarrassment.

    TERRORIST Virgil Pearson Tasha Williams/ Natasha Williams: She is being paid and housed to torture me. SHE HAS JUST ABOUT EVERYONES INFORMATION HELD FOR QUESTIONING AND LIE DETECTOR TEST SHE WOULD EXPOSE MORE AND SENT TO A FEDERAL PRISON! Last four digits of her social security number are #270-29-2745 possibly born in 1983. I heard this number in V2K a psychotic criminal and narcissistic vicious terrorist, mother with a daughter (Aisha) who is 12 years of age a child she smoked crack while pregnant and was arrested for abusing her daughter this child was sent to the emergency hospital she loss custody. Parents home went into foreclosure. Natasha Williams is located of Salem Dayton, Ohio on public assistant/public housing. Arrested for identity theft, not paying child support, child abuse, (state is paying for terrorist). She remotely rapes me every day every night. She has stripped me of most of my memories in exchange for drugs and food, if she took a lie detector and was asked how she knew so many details about my life not ever interacting with me in person ever that she simply viewed my past through the data retained in my brain as memory only Carbon Copy. This would prove that Remote Neural Monitoring was a real weapon being used to torture Americans like myself. She makes child pornography daily virtually. Black mails others perpetrators and is being housed she was in public housing in Dayton, Ohio DANGEROUS. She has created child pornography and involved in Human Trafficking for the pedophiles of Kettering, Ohio she is paid to torture innocent people in Montgomery County crack cocaine, Domino’s Pizza that is delivered often along with other criminals paid by a bank account that is in Kettering, Ohio. There is a parking lot in back of Tasha’s apartment. She has been given this apartment only because she tortures and stalks me.

    So, I am sick of this dividing our country. I understand that this is a big deal, and it needs to end. However, I am so sad. I am not a Democrat. I am not a Republican. I am, the people…and it makes me so sad, that the freedom fighter branch "republicans," are completely ignoring the people.

    I see, a man who has been brought up from a family with endless money. I see, a man who wanted to make a name for himself, apart from his father's money. I see, a man who swindled countless Americans, when he created (and ultimately destroyed) his university. I see, a man who was triumphant in making a name for himself with his hotels. I see, that this same man maneuvered a military operation, in accordance with boosting his business in Turkey. I see, this same man, who pulled out American troops in defiance of our allies in the middle east, allowing ISIS to regroup. I see, that he cares more, for his own interests, than that of mine, the American person…

    I see, that there are people defending him. I see, that I have friends that defend him. I also see, that this person is devoid of reason and understanding, even to his own party. Finally, I see, that this man, is by all accounts, a DICTATOR. This is just my opinion; however, if our own leader can cause such disarray among it's own people, imagine the goal of the person pulling his strings.

    Look . . . I get the reasons WHY you have stopped asking questions that you know the Puppenfurher and his Minions will not answer. It seems pointless, and might even get you banned from the press pool. Unfortunately, while that excuse might work for most people, if you are a journalist, then its your JOB to ask those questions.

    For example, when the White House lawyers say the process is "unfair", you immediately shout: "What specific detail(s) is unfair, and how would you change it to make it fairer?" This has gone on for months! Demand the specifics, and if they refuse to give any, then STOP REPORTING THEIR TALKING POINT! You dont say: "The White House lawyers call the process unfair…". You say:
    "Despite offering no evidence or specifics to support their claim, White House lawyers made vague claims of "unfairness", as they have been doing since the outset of the investigation."

    I hope they don't try to bring the Mueller findings into the next phase. Yes, it shows a pattern of "obstuction". However, it's best just to keep the impeachment hearings about the Ukraine matter. It's easy to understand. It shows "abuse of power, bribery, obstruction of justice AND obstruction of Congress". It's a clean and clear matter that's VERY easy to understand.

    I wish the Dems would introduce into evidence how many Ukrainians, especially soldiers, died while the money was held up. It goes to the case being made. I don't mean to sound indelicate but it really is important. I think that's something Americans who have loved ones in the military would understand.

    The catch 22 is that IF thumper pardons anyone it will reflect upon him "abusing his power". He'll continue to ignore it. He may pardon people as he's leaving office but I think that would be the only time. Plus, I hear all of these people saying he'll "blanket" pardon himself for his own crimes when he leaves office BUT you can only pardon someone once they're found guilty of a crime AND pardoning yourself is a blatant ABUSE OF POWER.
