    Still should be, a democratic Senate subpoenaed Clinton over a blowjob and held a full trial.

    If we dont see the same done for actual high crimes and misdemeanors we know the Republicans fixed it and it was a cover up, not a trial...

    We probably already know that, but I agree.

    A trial is not where you develop evidence, it is where you present it. The House heard enough evidence to indict the president, now you guys are all complaining that there needs to be more evidence. If there was enough for the House to indict, then why would the Senate need more evidence to render its verdict. The time to build your case was BEFORE the impeachment vote, not after. And the idea that Trump would ever be called to testify is lunacy.

    Clinton was subpoenaed?

    Yes, having a loose cannon in the White House is indeed an existential threat.

    Polosis delay brought the fact that Republicans not only do not the truth but Moscow Mich just last week signed a petition to drop charges.

    Yeah this is going to be a fair trial...
    It' pretty clear that they don't want the truth. A lot of the prominent Republicans know the truth, but if they speak it, they're likely to lose the next election. It's not that they're bad people, they just want to be reelected. The problem is, so many voters have been conned by the fraud in chief.

    If you think efforts to gain more evidence stops once the indictment is written and presented to a grand jury, you are insane. The DA's office and the police continue to interview witnesses and they continue to ask for warrants and continue to follow the trails those law enforcement activities lead, all the way through to closing statements. If they uncover more they inform opposing council and the court of the new evidence to ensure proper discovery and adequate notice or amend their witness list or recall those that already testified. There is a process for this because newly discovered evidence that is relevant and material can only serve the interest of justice, if it is admitted and scrutinized. It cannot serve the interest of justice if it is ignored.

    I doubt there are more than a few who don't know the truth. Half the MAGA crowd knows the truth. They may be in denial, but they know.

    Exactly, there has even been more evidence found since the impeachment, are they not supposed to present those emails or question the people who wrote them???
