Democrats: "Trump is guilty" Republicans: " No he's not"
Adam Schiff: "Am I on camera"?
I hate this whole waste of time. Not one person will be influenced based on what they heard today. If you went in thinking Trump was guilty and should be impeached, you feel the same tonight.
If you feel this is a witch hunt and a sham, you still believe that tonight.
My biggest issue is the line, " we won't give up the whistleblower and we don't know who he is". Well then how the hell do you know what he said or didn't say?
Also, and I know at this hearing it's not a valid argument but everything said by the two witnesses today was totally hearsay and inadmissible in normal court proceedings. Each witness testified they never heard first hand any evidence of quid pro quo.
So what we have here is what we know it to be. It's a verbal coupe, an attempt to overthrow a sitting President. We also know it will fail as there is no way the Dems get the necessary votes to remove him from office once this reaches the Senate.
This entire matter will be resolved by the American people next November. If Trump is re-elected it will be the will of the people. If he loses, the same.
However, we have now crossed into a new realm of political discourse never seen in this nation. A new democratic President will immediately come under fire. Trump will spend every waking minute and every dollar digging up dirt (as a private citizen) to take out his successor.
And just so everyone knows, all of us get screwed by this no matter the party.
