Hahahahaha! You are so clueless, lol! The republican defense to this is going to be nothing more than a clown show at best. They literally have no defense. They can't defend the indefensible. Trump's defense team will only stand up there and repeat the same dumba** drivel and talking points Trump and his sheeple spout off on a daily basis, "the call was perfect", "there was no crime", "it's a witch hunt", etc.

Senate Impeachment Trial Bored Republican and Democrat Senators Alike

The Democrat House impeachment managers on Friday concluded a third day of opening arguments, with evidence suggesting that, so far, impeachment has been boring Republicans, Democrats, and journalists alike.


The Senate impeachment trial began on Wednesday, after what was already a long day on Tuesday when Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer forced a long series of amendments that lasted beyond 1:00 a.m. on the resolution setting the rules for the trial.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Jim Risch (R-RI) was the only one seen nodding off on Tuesday, but multiple senators were visibly tired on Wednesday, with both Republicans and Democrat senators caught appearing to be sleeping.

Within the first hour on Wednesday, Senate Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Mark Warner (D-VA) was seen leaning on his right arm with a hand covering his eyes, according to the Associated Press.

β€œHe stayed that way for around 20 minutes, then shifted to rest his chin in the same hand, eyes closed, for about five more minutes,” the AP reported.

Also caught appearing to nod off was 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (I-VT), according to Courthouse News:


The AP reported that the Democrat House impeachment managers β€œrelied on the same loops of videotaped testimony.”​

Yahoo reported that other senators were seen passing notes and doing crossword puzzles.
Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) left early.

Check with your United States Senators and get back with me.
Just seems childishly petty. There is no way that changes a vote. Anyone who says it changes their vote would have never had the backbone to vote their conscious in the first place, they are just looking to play the blame game and lay some cover for their weakness.

Yeah yeah yeah.... blah blah blah..... we get it already Homer. Schitt has hung your party on the front house lawn.
You idiots will be lucky to have any votes for a Dem ever again. Schitt said he doesn't want the American people to ever vote for a President ever again. What a communist POS he is just for that comment.

Are you serious?
Starr veered off of the Whitewater course when he realized he was coming up with nothing and jumped into the Paula Jones investigation.
And the Whitewater investigation was completely based on right wing demand.
Plus, you never answered the question.
How far into the Starr investigation did Clinton commit the actual crime?
They weren't investigating him because he had committed a crime.
Whitewater was a political goose chase, just as this whole mess with Trump is. And it ended with nothing. Starr jumped into the Paula Jones investigation because, as I explained earlier, he was brought tapes of conversations Linda Tripp had recorded between herself and Monica, where Monica talked about her affair with Bill Clinton, that he had denied UNDER OATH for his deposition in the suit FILED BY Paula Jones for sexual harassment. None of this had anything to do with Starr's Whitewater investigation, but he was still the special counsel at the time so he was directed to look into it.

Whitewater was political, the perjury charge was not. Bill Clinton KNOWINGLY lied under oath. There's nothing political about that. He committed a crime. When caught with indisputable evidence, he admitted to it. I swear, Luther, it's like you have no concept of history.

IMO, they shouldn't even bother with a defense. Just go ahead and hold the vote and acquit him. The Dems have not proven anything worthy of removal from office. Hate for the man is not a valid reason.

Thank you for coming around.
You kept acting like the Clinton investigation was somehow more pure or warranted than the Trump investigation. It was't. It was much less justified. To act like Trump's impeachment is opening some heretofore unopened door is simply untrue.
Trump's transgressions far surpass those of Clinton, but the outcome will unfortunately be the same.

lol I said Whitewater was political. The Monica investigation and perjury charges were not. Wrap your head around that. Bill Clinton actually committed a crime.

They have proven that he attempted to bribe a foreign leader by withholding congressionally approved funds in exchange for a publicly announced investigation into his biggest rival in the 2020 election and then attempted to cover up the bribery by obstructing congress.
