    "The 123-page Republican report was prepared for Devin Nunes, Jim Jordan and Michael McCaul, the ranking members on the House intelligence, oversight and foreign affairs committees, respectively."

    Trying to coordinate partisan talking points is expected. Coordinating them with dishonesty is unfortunate. The strangest thing to me, though, is how Republicans have decided to preempt news with fabricated descriptions of events. They're publishing a dissent before the opinion gets issued, so to speak. It worked well enough with Barr/Mueller, so it looks like they're going to keep running the same play.
    Republicans saw the same evidence that the Dems did. The Republicans have reached their opinion of that evidence. Nothing wrong with that.

    This is pure TWILIGHT ZONE alternate reality that only the GOP dwell in and seem quite happy there. They have betrayed America, the American people and our Constitution.

    Re: Republicans issue 123-page defense of Trump ahead of Democrats’ impeachment report

    [Disclaimer. I have not yet read the Republican's document.]

    President of the United States of America Donald Trump faces at least three specific possibilities of wrongdoing in any future articles of impeachment. There is the 'un-indicted co-conspirator' reference in a court case that has seen the other party sentenced to jail, the 10 or so citations in Part 2 of the Mueller report and the possible misuse of office for personal gain with the government of Ukraine.

    There is evidence for each of these. Much of it is already before the public.

    The Republican document, I would hope, will provide reasoned discussion of the evidence in each area and show why it is not correct. In short, it will, ideally, be an appeal to reason based upon fact.

    So you're just going to claim your own nonsense and attempt to make just another regressive circle jerk thread?

    I don't see you offering any actual responses to what is being proposed, apart from the same tired derision that we've been getting from your side all this whole time.
    Why do they run?
    Because they have no choice son, such is the way of cowards.
    But even a cornered rat, with no choice, will fight.
    Yes my son, and that should tell you more than you need to know about the coward.

    Strange, tell me. What part about it happens to be disinformation?

    Everything in this report we already heard in the open hearings and all the media coverage since this all began. The GOP has no real defense of the facts. So they make stuff up and keep pushing conspiracy theories. Given their track record, no one needs to read the GOP report. They have nothing exculpatory. Attack the process, attack the witnesses. End of story. Trump got caught and is guilty as sin.

    Like Bill Barr did with the Mueller report?

    Democrats condemn defense of Trump. They would rather just string him up by mob rule and be done with him, no trial needed.
