This is distinct from the TRump humor thread. If you're a triggered right winger, that wants to vent the best "libs are evil" crap you can come up with, this is the place. Not the TRump cartoon and Meme thread.

Although feel free to post memes very specific to Trump about how awesome he is, in the Trump cartoon and meme thread.

Hand picked texts from people who are neither Trump nor presidential Z, to paint a narrative that isnt there? Lolz, sure its not a CNN/NYT conspiracy. There is literally nothing here, but you've been told to see something by your masters, so you do.

Please show us exact what messages you think are damning and we can discuss.

You aren't objective - so I'm pretty much done here.


I've been totally objective, asking for facts and evidence. Schiff cant provide anything but hear say and fake narratives. You are parroting his nonsense, but cant seem to see it. Let's at least be clear who isn't objective.

What about the evidence this weekend that directly thrashes your narrative? You dont care about actual facts that contradict your tapestry of lies used to build the Schiff narrative.


Boltons written confirmation of what Trump did ?


Lol, as if we needed more proof that you are full of confirmation bias. You would see evidence of trump guilt in your morning dump. No, this is the actual evidence you are ignoring:

there is a witness (Sondland) to that fact.
marcus says
such as Willianm Taylor saying that SOndland told him that the release of the aid was conditional on the announcement of investigations.


https://www.cbsnews.com/video/gop-congressman-slams-sondland-over-presumption/

Sondland admitted everything he testified to was personal "presumption".

You probably dont care about that, or about the fact that Sondland was cherry picked to share his presumptions specifically for his unique and biased perspective.

You also don't care that Trump was checking up on every country for corruption and effectiveness of the aid for the american people. This has been Trump's thing since the beginning with every country he interacts, and its exactly what a president should be doing.

Trump SHOULD make sure Ukraine cooperates with our investigations into corruption. Trump SHOULD make sure the american people are getting a fair shake with aid $$. Trump SHOULD find out what happened in Ukraine regarding our 2016 elections!

You are seeing orange man bad. Meanwhile, actually unbiased voters see a POTUS doing what he should be doing. Results? Trump is more popular every day, despite 98% negative MSM fakenews from the establishment.

Be part of the old establishment if you like Marcus. By definition that makes you a conservative corporatist cheerleader. I'm for the people.

Right. so the democrats have nothing but "made up facts." I'm the one that won't consider the other side.

Can you show me the most objective summary you can find, that summarizes both sides of the argument ?

No, becasue your argument involves sticking your fingers in your ears and loudly saying "lalalalalalalalalalalalal I CAN"T HEAR YOU, YOU HAVE NO EVIDENCE. YOU DON:T EVEN HAVE ENOUGH EVIDENCE THAT WE SHOULD BE WILLING TO CONSIDER EVIDENCE THAT YOU CLAIM EXISTS AND THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY SUBPOENAED"

Lol, ok you show us how this is done.

Heres my objective summary:

Schiff is afflicted w TDS and most likely hiding corruption by his buddies, therefore orange man bad. Things that noone would've cared about any other POTUS is ora ge man bad w Trump. Considering the proven coup attempt that schiff was involved with, schiff cant allow investigations into Ukraine... therefore he is cooking up this newest orange man bad scheme w no actual evidence. (Please note you still have not provided any actual evidence, nor will you discuss any. Try to be better)

Summary of the defense: discussing corruption and value to "US" as the american taxpayer has been Trumps foreign aid focus, as it should be. It is agreed by everyone involved, D's and R's and foreign diplomats alike, that ukraine was a heavily corrupt place w many many many organizations and individuals worthy of investigation. The first and most relevant is wtf happened with our 2016 election?!

It is Trumps job to investigate and get to the bottom of this, but the D's dont want him to so they are calling foul to stop him. Easy.

Now you go.

Actually I did, but your reaction is the same as your reaction to Trump constantly lying. Even now you say that Trump's lies are minor and silly little lies.

"Things nobody woud've cared about any other POTUS"

I don't believe any other POTUS would be so stupid and such a loose cannon as to to insist on a public statement being made about another country investigating a political rival, as a condition for release of $400 million in military aide.

That's what Trump is accused of, and that is what there is evidence of. Further evidence has been blocked and republicans don't want to see it.

Period.

That's my view of the democrat side.

As for the republican side ? Assertions that there is no evidence. But no ability to break it down one by one. Just assertion after assertion, that the impeachment was only an attempt to remove Trump that they democrats wanted all along.

Now that's some mind reading kind of projection right there. Yes you can find an individual that said that. So ?

He didn't. There is zero evidence of this.

Um... they did. Trumps legal team went into each 3rd party claim, showed actual perspective and reasons why those claims were just biased presumptions.

I've also asked you to show us the evidence, piece by piece but you cant. You offer links of gossiping text messages that are misinterpreted and used to stuff into your pre-existing narrative. It's called confirmation bias, and you got it bad.

I'm asking you to actually break down your facts one by one, and you cant. There is literally no actual evidence, just hear say and mind reading.

The only mind reading is happening from Schiff and those who buy into his mind reading narrative.

None of the those are crimes. About as relevant as the old crime of "Mopery", which was loitering in an area possibly thinking about prostitution or larceny. It was, as Democrats love, a mind-reading "crime" where motives were assigned without cause. "You might have been thinking about robbing the house, you often loitered outside of it." Mopery has long since been dropped as a criminal charge, no judge will countenance such a "Crime".

To Abuse Power, there has to be an underlying crime.

Using Constitutionally or Statue granted powers, to fire Ambassadors, to review and withhold Foreign Aid pending a review, etc. can never be Abuse of Power nor Obstruction of Congress.

Obstruction of Congress is particularly toothless and retarded. Example: "You vetoed our budget! You're obstructing the House from carrying out it's fiscal duties!"

Yep. In fact, in the closed door testimony that Schiff kept secret from the Media, the Executive, and Congress generally, the hostile witnesses admitted Ukraine corruption was a concern, stated that Corruption would not instantly disappear the moment Zelinsky was elected, and that this and other Presidents can and have delayed aid pending a corruption review, etc.

This thing is pretty much over. The Senate will not impeach. The only question is whether it gets instantly dismissed, or the Republicans have fun with Vindman, Hunter, etc.

The truth is even more flimsy. Its, "We (the HOUSE) didnt want to either properly serve subpoenas NOR did we want to ask a judge to make a ruling in favor of our subpoenas... NOR would we allow Trump to respond to or bring any witnesses of his own, BUT its totally obstruction of congress when Trump wont do exactly as we demand including but not limited to ignoring his executive privilege. Also due process is just a silly thing Republicans say, its not the best way to ascertain truth or anything. Nah, you know Orange man is definitely bad."

They are mind readers and also know Trump's intent...and somehow pleasing the people to increase his chances of election is SO BAD!

Its amazing how many hoops they have to jump through to still get to "meh, nothing here is even wrong, much less impeachable".

RE; "it'll cost you in 2020""

I don't see how.. Assuming Trump is not removed from office. It doesn't mean that he is exonerated from doing exactly what everyone knows he did. It just means that the senate (republicans) acquitted him, probably based primarily on arguments that what he may have done doesn't rise to that level. That gets them out of having to look more deeply at evidence (previously subpoenaed) that would confirm what Trump did.

The truth is Trump is your president. If you want that to change in less than four years you had better find a candidate whose platform is not TDS. Trump did not win as much as Hillary lost. If your campaign is socialism or "orange man bad" you're a loser.

US Code "Subversion of Democracy"?
US Code "Abuse of Power"?

Clinton and Nixon were impeached by the House because of an underlying crime (Perjury and Criminal Conspiracy).

Johnson was not impeached, and later court rulings sided with Johnson, for whom most of the charges centered around Congress trying to prohibit the President from firing Cabinet members and other officers as per his Executive Powers.

What underlying crime is Trump accused of?

What happened to "Clear Quid Pro Quo" and "Russian Collusion"?

Now they are suggesting that requiring action on known corruption involving that country before agreeing to aid is an impeachable offense. "OMG Bolton might maybe have said Trump wanted to be sure investigations into corruption involving past aid were moving forward before we give them more aid. The monster!"
