    Presumably, Trump could vacate that Article by producing the witnesses and documents he has been illegally hiding (as courts are virtually certain to argue).

    But if he does that, he convicts himself on the other charge (or gets acquitted in a transparently political way).

    Or, Pelosi can sit on the indictment for as long as she chooses.

    Trump is impeached.

    He can’t declare himself exhonorated without the trial.
    Actually until she delivers the articles he is not impeached.

    Actually she could until the next election cycle where it will die. Until she turns them over according to multiple legal scholars he is not impeached.

    Also she is now obstructing congress, abuse of power and extortion. So she really should step down.

I see no reason Reps should do their job for them.. after all, as we always hear, this is a POLITICAL process.
    Why would they?

    Because the American people deserve the truth, and i mean the WHOLE truth!!!

    This is an impeachment, the "president" has been proven to be corrupt.

    It is the Senate's job to get to the facts, it is not their job to protect the president!!!

    Why in the **** don't Republicans get this?!?

    Bringing to attention the number two enemy of America (trump being number one) is an act of patriotism.

    There is no rule stating that. The Dems will get the rest of the evidence after impeachment if they want to. Why should they allow Trump to run out the clock before they impeach him?

    If Trump is innocent, then you have nothing to worry about. But you know he is guilty, just like McConnell does.

    I so wish one of the Dems would go out and say hey Iran Cuba Egypt hell the whole content of Africa who got dirt on Trump? The GOP would have a s h i t fit. Lol. And remember is okay now because they just canadates. The truth is the only reason the GOP have no problems with Russia is because it's a white nation. Also the GOP wants to be ruled they long for the day of a dictator or king. Oh so un-america. What a strange political party.

The same people will argue that direct fact witnesses are "unnecessary" and then claim it is all "hearsay" - which isn't even a "thing" in impeachment. The sheen on a highway from dew is deeper than their claims. Only idiots would present such nonsense or accept it.

    Did they have enough evidence to impeach or not? If they did then they don't need more evidence and it is crackers to tell the senate that it is their job to come up with the evidence. That's what the House was supposed to do.

    And Mulvaney and Bolton will testify. 51 Senators will agree with this. Most Americans want to know the truth about what happened and they will get it, whether you Trump cultists like it or not.
    bull****...lmfao

    omg...you people are so easy to read

    you want Trump and his people to fall into the same idiotic trap slick Willie fell into

    sorry...but isnt going to happen

    that is your last ditch hope to make something out of this crap that Pelosi got herself into to

    good luck with it....you are going to need it
