I will be watching when the witnesses are cross examined but won't watch if they are not. This charade won't last long because the Democrats will punt as soon as the truth starts to get uncovered. Fake news and fake politicians are going to have their clothes stripped!

      Talk about a drug addicted nimrod = imbecile, take a look in the mirror with your double posts. Whats wrong? You are too drug filled to have your mind connect with your finger?

      Generations, and newcomers of sensible, humble and quiet people have long found respite in this county from people exactly like you. Your very words and thoughts should tell you, that this is not the place for you. You are only here to try to cause strife within the community because you have nothing else in your life. Why would you not want to be back living and conversing with those who are like-minded people? You chose to move here knowing we do not live life like Citiodts, you have no right to complain now.

        Above. How about this. Lindsey Graham will, on the floor of the U.S. Senate, drop to his knees and perform fellatio on Trump, during the impeachment hearings, for all Americans to see. Thats what Repubs will do to protect him, even though they hate him. They just want to stay in office and will do anything to do so. How about that Jordan crackpot from Ohio? What a despicable human being.

            Bill Taylor will be the firsts to testify. The Dems have the damning evidence, the heavy artillery, coming in early. What Republicans? You going to tell me that Trump is more honorable than Bill Taylor? Or Vindeman? Or the lady that was removed as Ambassador to Ukraine? They will paint an ugly picture for the American people to see. As long as Republican Senators refuse to see the truth, impeachment is next to impossible. But come November 2020 that lying sack will be recognized for what he is, and removed by vote. Then he can go back to crotch grabbing. Maybe he can join Sean Spicer on dancing with the stars!

      The GOP's strategy is to throw as much BS as they can all the while hoping for no logical reason that something might make sense. Here's an idea Republicans, just go with the truth...you might keep your seats.....but unlikely after you attacked a Patriotic Army Officer. This independent veteran will never forgive you for that!

Watching republican leadership during these hearings is surreal. 'The wrong side of history' doesn't even begin to describe their horrifying metamorphosis.

The GOP has been struggling and ultimately failing to slow the erosion of their core, conservative values. Classic conservatism, rooted in fiscal responsibility and a strong military has been steadily abandoned. Left to bleed out and die on the foreign sands of endless wars. It has been the party of, for and by the wealthy for four decades. Only kept in power by a loyal following of working class voters tricked into obsessing over immigrants, gays and abortions while their pockets were picked in broad daylight.

Bloated on wealth and drunk with power, republicans seized the role of unapologetic plutocrats. But the hunger that drives corruption is greed. And the only defense our republic has against that imposing, toxic cocktail is our constitution. And now everyone has a front row seat to witness the latest iteration of republican values attempt to eat its way through that constitution.

Watching them sit through congressional hearings that surgically dismantle their conspiracies is like watching toddlers pass kidney stones. Their values are now the values of Donald Trump. And like the aspiring oligarch occupying our White House, they are incoherent and bewildering as they desperately attempt to hide behind conspiracies and tribal partisanship. To the point that they're willing to serve as the propaganda wing of the Kremlin to defend its single greatest asset.

The hearings are no longer a search for truth. That has been established. Russia interfered with the 2016 election, not the Ukraine as Putin would have us believe. Trump withheld military aid to pressure a foreign leader to interfere in the 2020 election on his behalf. And there isn't a single republican in this country who wants to see Donald Trump give testimony under oath.

Are they afraid that he'll lie or that he'll tell the truth?

The reality is that it doesn't matter because either would destroy him. And that betrayal of this grand experiment will be the hourglass hanging around the GOP's neck long after the inevitable crisis of conscience in the Senate or election result in 2020. Political ignorance destroys careers. Constitutional betrayal destroys political parties. Indifference to both destroys nations.

        Unfortunately they have too much pride to admit they screwed up in 2016. Even Trump supporters know he is a dangerous idiot. They are just trolling the rest of us (the majority by the way) because they are bored with their own lives and sadly because they do not care all that much about the future of the country.

        This is what Nero's Rome must have felt like.
