    LIVE: Senate Finishes Question-and-Answer Session in Trump Impeachment Trial

    LIVE: Senate Finishes Question-and-Answer Session in Trump Impeachment Trial

    This portion is actually interesting. Except when Adam Schiff answers questions.

    The Senate will conclude its Q&A session today. I encourage everyone to pay attention to it. I found it interesting, except when Adam Schiff speaks.

    It begins at 1 p.m. ET.

    Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow is 100% correct. We have seen how they behave when it doesn’t go their way.

    Rep. Jerry Nadler has a tendency to provoke Republican senators. He did it again today:

    When House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler invoked the name of Sens. Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, the two swing votes were seen taking notes about Nadler’s contention that the defense’s arguments about President Trump’s mixed motives were “nonsense.”

    Nadler argued it didn’t matter if there was a mixed motive.

    “Once you prove a corrupt act, that’s it,” he said.

    Philbin had a great reminder for everyone about a person not waiving their rights:

    Mr. Philbin responds thatit is “striking and shocking” that Democrats have cast President Trump as having something to hide because he has sought to block some potential evidence. He said Democrats have made statements such as “only the guilty hide evidence,” “Only the guilty don’t respond to subpoenas,” and “this is not the way innocent people act.” Mr. Philbin continued: “Well, of course, that’s contrary to the very spirit of our American justice system where people have rights, and asserting those rights cannot be interpreted as an indication of guilt.”

    So Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell began the procedure with a veiled threat to Rand Paul. Remember, last night Paul caused a somewhat commotion when Chief Justice John Roberts wouldn’t read his question since it named the whistleblower.

    Well, Paul submitted his question right away and…

    The session has about seven hours and 54 minutes left for the House managers and President Donald Trump’s team.

    Senate Majority Whip John Thune said “it’s still uncertain” how some of his colleagues will vote. We already know Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Maine Sen. Susan Collins, and Utah Sen. Mitt Romney could possibly vote for witnesses and new evidence.

    The media has latched its claws into retiring Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander as the wild card. He’s basically told everyone to leave him alone.

    Then we have conservative Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin. He said he would vote for witnesses, but that includes a subpoena for Hunter Biden.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham is confident the chamber has 53 votes to subpoena Hunter Biden.

    One thing you can always count on is that the buffoons in the Senate love to hear themselves talk – especially on TV. This is why I believe they’re going to keep this farce going as long as possible.

    Take heart, McCain is not involved.

    The Hill:

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday hammered the lawyers leading President Trump’s impeachment defense, saying they’ve trampled on the Constitution while questioning how they’ve been allowed to keep their jobs.

    “I don’t know how they can retain their lawyer status, in the comments that they’re making,” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol.

      As one of two living brain donors – AOC being the other one, Nancy might want to reconsider her donation.

        It’s not a coincidence that Nancy and AOC are the only two living brain donors, because they each donated their brains to the other. If AOC’s body rejects the transplant, one could certainly argue that AOC would be better off as a result. The same could be said for Nancy.

        Glad I wasn’t one of the recipients of either of those so called brains.

      Just her way of declaring defeat. They’re going to bluster and whine, but by tomorrow night this particular coup attempt is going to be dead. On to the next bogus “investigation”.

      Especially after Pelosi sees these things….

      “As a Catholic, I resent your using the word hate in a sentence that addresses me,” Pelosi snapped today.

      Just a reminder for the staunch Catholic @SpeakerPelosi
      that the Catholic Church teaches abortion is “a crime against human life.”

    This “trial” is just a limited taste of the future if the Dems control the country. There would be a lot of show trials from now until then and plenty more after that.

    “This portion is actually interesting. Except when Adam Schiff answers questions.”

    😀 You might relate to this, Mary.
