Caban Gonzalez deserves some nice change when his suit is settled. At least he can expect to get his SS card back. Dave Bearse 6 months ago The GOP claims the impeachment process has been a rushed along sham. Perhaps it’s time to let the articles remain in the House until the courts weigh in on various cases before them that would affect Senate proceedings. alpha male 6 months ago Reply to Dave Bearse Most striking fact in this whole charade is that you and your ilk do not even realize how hilarious this gambit of yours is. bethebalance 6 months ago Reply to alpha male ^Meaningless comment. alpha male 6 months ago Reply to bethebalance I think you meant to say “ meaningless impeachment’. Apparently not even worth prosecuting. bethebalance 6 months ago Reply to alpha male No, I called it meaningless because it had no substance-i.e. no reference or incorporation of any fact or policy.

It’s not a pattern. It’s coincidence as every Republican will tell you. There’s no documentation that a favor was expected, and you can’t know with absolute certainty what Trump was thinking while publicly questioning whether he husband was in hell for it to Republican cheers. https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/politics/2019/12/18/trump-targets-dingell-late-husband-during-battle-creek-rally/2692307001/ It’s worth noting that sycophants like Doug Collins refer to Trump as a gentleman.

Stable genius Trump thinks he’s channeling Alan Dershowitz. And who will say different to him. Certainly no Trump supporters and virtually no elected Republicans at any level or those beholden to the party.
