                The reality of a normal high court case is a pretrial review, the evidence is examined and very early on it is decided wether or not there is enough evidence to try a case, looking at the papers there is no case, the senate should throw it out and say come back when you have a high crime. By saying lets go to trial on a weak case they are entertaining the opposition who have chanced their luck. It is a bad move, they should go find a crime, go through courts, build a strong case and witnesses and then submit it. This is all a big show.

                  You know every last one of you reporters are about as arrogant and ignorant as they come. You constantly interrupt your guests while they are answering the question that YOU just asked them. Have some decency and allow them to answer your freaking question before you BUTT IN and interrupt them. You are SO BLOODY RUDE it's sickening. No manners at all.

                                  I’m amazed on how people use word salads to explain what everybody knows...Trump did what he’s accused of. It reminds me of the “bla bla bla” of talking heads during the OJ Simpson trial. He did it..we know it!

                                    Because privilege is not complete. Interactions between him and President yes. His views about quid pro quo and what he meant by drug deal however are not privileged. And Gowdy knows that.

                                      Why would Executive Privilege apply during an impeachment trial?

                                          Have the trial. Dont have the trial. It isn't going to change anything. Those who support the President will continue to do so. Those that don't will continue to do so. The only thing that is changing is people leaving the left and moving more toward the right.

                                                  I'm wondering, if the Senate, after duly hearing the case, votes to dismiss it, that it will become a talking point and war cry for the Democratic party to use in the upcoming election. "The Republicans are a rogue party, look what they did by dismissing the Articles of Impeachment without calling witnesses!" We'll never hear the end of it.

He was there to start another war and Mr Trump said no to war. Bolton is now offering himself to the evil left to do “damage and harm Trump 2020🇺🇸”.

                                                            There were 17 witness in the house hearings with many more that were subpoenaed that broke the law and did not. This Republican wishes to see all the relevant documents and all the relevant witnesses. Bolton want to testify and he should. Surely there is one of the President's men who can support him under oath.

Now he is compelled to have a full trial to show the appearance of fairness; but what he should have done is kept his mouth shut and pretended he was going to have a full and fair trial, but then when he received the Articles of Impeachment he could have simply had a pre-trial hearing and then determined by way of majority vote that there was no case to answer! Case dismissed!

Burden of proof, by law, is on the house, not the President, not the senate,,, the house. I'd love to see the book hours wasted on all this and watch the Dems try to explain their way out of all this waste.

All the witnesses we saw during the investigation risked everything to tell the truth. Because politicians on both sides are spineless, Trump is going to remain in office even though he got caught cheating in the upcoming election.
