    Before hearing any evidence or is this that good ol' rightwing "we don' need no stinkin' eveedence" bit again? There's already a brand new ****load of evidence corroborating Dirtbag's crimes: The GAO just ruled that withholding aid to Ukraine was illegal and one of Giuliani's henchmen has a trove of documentation that Dirtbag (and Pence) were in on the shake-down from the beginning.

    They'll probably kick an ass or two

    That's what Mitch and Lindsey do.
    They're own...of course.

    There's new evidence coming out--piling up, in fact--daily even now. The House inquiry goes on right into and during the trial just as it would in any other court trial.

    Obviously this was on CNN within the last half hour because you are all repeating the same talking points. Maybe if the senate had been sequestered for the last 6 months you might have something. The problem is, they have already heard the evidence. Plus, if you want impartiality, you would have to demand that Warren and Sanders remove themselves since they have a huge conflict of interest and have already made their postitions on impeachment well known. It seems to me that impartiality in your mind is agreeing with liberals.
