    Default Senate Impeachment Trial

    The Blue side doesn't have the votes in the Senate to expel the Trumpster from office AND the Red side knows this, as do most Americans. Having a full blown trial with all the trimmings would eliminate any and all suspicion away from the Red side. No Blue supporter could scream foul.

    Yet the Grim Reaper won't, as of today, do this. I am confused as to why not. Rid yourself of being perceived as bias and be done with it.

    THE BLUE SIDE AIN'T GOT THE VOTES AND THEY NEVER WILL
    ROCK CHALK

    Pretty dumb. THE HOUSE could have called ANYONE that the Senate could have called. You do realize that Trump could contest in the courts the VERY SAME PEOPLE that Shumer now wants to call don't you?????

    PS

    You do know that Trump has already refused to let then testify don't you??

    It is an absolute certainty that dems will scream foul no matter what the senate does. I bet even our resident "Libertarian" will be crying foul in all caps and extra punctuation.

    Reginald, for the Senate to do what Shumer asks, it would have to subpoena the very same 4 people that the House did. Three of them Trump refused to allow to testify and Boulden said he would only do what the court ordered. The dims of the House decided that it would then forget about going to court ands seek a court order requiring them to testify. THE DIMS OF THE HOUSE WERE TOO LAZY TO DO WHAT THEY NOW ASK THE SENATE TO DO. Don't you understand that if the Senate subpoened those 4 that Trump would again do the very same thing that he did when the House subpoened them???

    Again, the HOUSE could have done what they now demand the SENATE to do. If you had listened to McConnell's speech on the Senate floor, he made it very clear. He said that the dims were not going to get the Senate go down the very same road that the House had gone, making the Senate look like the incompetents of the House. If the dims wanted those 4 to testify, the HOUSE should have gone to court to force them. They could have taken the time and effort to do so rather than trying to force the Senate to do it.

    I believe you are missing my point entirely. The Grim Reaper could do it but he won't. Yes the House could have went to court. The reaper could call them and if, if he did I am saying the Dems couldn't scream foul. It would be a clean trial. It won't be only, ONLY if the president doesn't allow it. And if he has nothing to hide and feels "it was a beautiful call" then let'em testify.

    By doing so, the majority of the american voters who voted for a Blue candidate can then go tuck tail and hide in their collective cave!!!

    You are right. I did not understand your point. But let me say that I do believe that McConnell is determined that the Senate will not be made a laughing stock as the House has.

    Now let me say what the result will be if he allows Pelosi and Shumer to get their way. Assuming that the courts agree with the sublpeonas, Trump advocates will want to also call some witnesses, including both Bidens, Shift and his staff, the whistle blower, just to name a few. Oh I forgot. How aboutr calling Pelosi to justify the refusal to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate, claiming that witnesses be allowed when she had previously given three REQUIREMENTS for an impeachment, none of which have been met?? What about most of those Congressmen and women that voted for impeachment, CLAIMING that the evidence was OVERWHELMING? If it is so "overwhelming" why the need to call additional witnesses, looking for new evidence??? I think Trump is actually happy to go down this reoad but McConnell is determined not to do so. His objective is to convince him that a win is a win and LET IT GO. Take it to the people and get reelected. He wants to see that the Senate is not truned into a circus.
