There needs to be a very harsh penalty for launching bogus and frivolous impeachment procedures. Something like the financial cost of the process should be billed to who initiates it, the taxpayer should not be on the hook for it when it is a purely political move. Penalties should be similar to those of treason. The Democrats have cheapened a process that should be reserved for the most serious offences.

This situation happened because America keeps choosing righteousness over peace. Power instead of Justice And Profit over People. This Country .. The United States we don't learn from our mistakes historically We repackage them Repeat them over and over... and over.. Nothing Changes but the time the date the month. Republicans right now are showing there hypocrisy there is know one there with any honor for America. 🇺🇸 Trump Must Go I say This Not A Republican or a Democrat as A American Citizens.. The Republican Party seems to be connected with the lowest common denominator hate groups white nationalist and a bunch of children on Best Buy laptops creating lie Memes... For Trump..

Constitution says (para-phrasing here): Acts that are impeachable include crimes LIKE bribery. I don't know 'bout the rest of ya, but 'quid-pro-quo' seems LIKE bribery, to me... 🤔 Edit: pluralized 'crimes'.

So where is the quid pro quo. He did not bring up the money in the conversation he said I will have the Attorney General get back to you what does the Attorney General do in the United States investigate investigate corruption. So where's the quid pro quo everybody keep saying this Trump didn't bring up the money he didn't bring up hate will give you this money if you investigate these people know that wasn't in the conversation so there is no crime committed and he let go of the money before the due date was available he released the money by September 15th in the money did not have to be released in September 30th

Joe Malarkey is not a political rival. The libtard logic is that they can investigate Trump but Trump can't investigate anyone on the left.

@Rodney Wolfram I'm a dual citizen living in the US. I moved here when Trump became president. I didn't vote in the 2019 Canadian election because I have better priorities so I don't feel like my opinion is even valid because Trudeau's election didn't change anything in my day-to-day life...so you clearly made a bold and false assumption about me. I'll be waiting for the apology. Meanwhile you'll be spending all your emotions and time caring about the politics in a country that has no effect on your day-to-day life 🤣 grow up kiddo

@aShura : And normally disregards the US Constitution, governing as they wish and NOT constitionally. During the run-up politics regarding war, really extended war on Iraq, which officially was launched in March 2003, though credibly began during 2002, GW Bush held a press conference at I guess the White House, talking about waging war on Iraq, (falsely) claiming that this was justified, and one journalist who was present asked a question like, " _But, what about the Constitution?_ ". Bush replied something like, " _Oh, it's just a piece of paper_ "; iow, insignificant. US presidents have been pretty much all of this sort of breed since JFK was assassinated. Of course Trump should be REMOVED from office, and this should've also happened with Obama, GW Bush, Clinton, GHW Bush, Reagan, even Jimmy Carter; ETC. There was pretty much nothing meaningful or significantly good about any of them, and that's not good at all when speaking of the ostensible leaders of the world's super power.

Canadians For Trump

I'm a dual citizen and spent 26 years in canada. I moved to the US when trump got elected. Canadians don't understand how bad they need someone like trump in canada. If Canadians keep supporting prime ministers like Trudeau or even conservative prime ministers that keep doing nothing then the systems and laws that need to be repealed will become irreversible. Canadians need someone that will stand up against corporations and against liberal agendas like carbon taxes. Someone needs to lower taxes significantly and demanding the businesses to lower their costs. The cost of living there is ridiculous now. I pay $45 a month for unlimited data, unlimited calling worldwide, and unlimited texting. In Canada you will pay 3 times that and still have a data cap. Fuel prices are theough the roof and everyone that gets in power just panders to their audience. I don't think trump is perfect but Canada needs someone that will stand up and be load and adamant about their stance. Trudea just cares about keeping low-key.

McConnell has set it up in such a way that key evidence against Trump will be presented in the wee hours of the morning when American citizens will be sleeping. Instead of three days of 8 hours per day he making it two days of 12 hours per day. This is a bloody ridiculous sham trial for which Republicans will face the wrath of the electorate come November.

@Derek Woodford I mean people in canada don't like russia or china and they effect the economy massively but I don't see anyone speaking out against any of those countries. It's just manufactured outrage.
The Jones
The Jones 8 months ago
@Derek Woodford yes, but you would think that if that was the case then Canadian's would like trump because he's strengthened the economy...but instead they criticize him for all the irrelevant(to them) details. Meanwhile they have a sitting prime minister who has essentially made Canada worse in my opinion. You may think I'm being hypocritical by following or caring about Canadian politics but I'm a dual citizen that is currently residing in the US.
The Jones
The Jones 8 months ago
@Derek Woodford the better question is "why do Canadians invest so much time and emotion in US politics that don't effect any of their day-to-day life?" Meanwhile they have their own major problems in Canada that should matter way more to them.

Let's bring on the accusers - the whistle blower, Schiff, and let's test the situation with the Bidens. Might as well not leave anything in the dark so we see it all. With everything out in the open, then honest people can make a judgement.
