CBC can hardly talk about what is happening in the U.S impeachment trial because they don't understand the U.S Constitution, it rules and laws. So if you don't know all of this information you should keep your opinion to yourself and report the real news.

People may now take their cues from the GOP and make up the rules as they go along. To hell with rule of law, precedent, fairness and justice. If one happens to be in control of the moment, just use your position of force and eliminate your opponent. Looks to be the way it may go. Nice example our lackies are setting. says something. Knives, guns, scopes and ammo stocks may be a hot investment. Perhaps the 2nd amendment people will know what to do as Trump suggested. Hell, if we all follow Trump and the GOPS' example we can just assassinate anyone we don't approve of. Seems to be the new way.

@Eva Sartorius you are right there was actual evidence against Clinton not just hearsay. this impeachment is a farce, if you could step outside your bubble for a minute and look at the facts presented you could see it for yourself.
Eva Sartorius
Eva Sartorius Month ago
Rhaven50 no they aren't. You need to wake.just because a gop hack says something doesn't make it so. Go back read both and remember Clinton cooperated the gop had all stuff the needed before the impeachment proceeding started trump stonewalled forbidding people testifying and refusing to turn over documents. Moscow mitch stated openly repeatedly that he would coordinate closely with the Whitehouse. Not the same. Not the same at all.

You wanna talk about party allegiance? Look at Nadler's comments from 20 years ago, about how impeachment voted down party lines should never be allowed, and then look at the house results. I just wish the GOP would swing back. Charge Comey, Schiff, Clinton, etc. for all of their malfeasance.

Mitch just wants to control the outcome , by manipulating the process . Just as he has Manipulated the process in the past to the GOP's best interest [Exmpl: Supreme Court Nominee Obama term ]. It is easy , just use the same rules that the Republicans used on their 2 impeachments in the past. " The Framer's worst nightmare ." Political Parties are the Framer's worst nightmare.

Former Slick Willy Clinton operative Giffen seems to be playing with words, saying that Trump’s behavior was obviously impeachable, because he was impeached for it. That would seem to be less a statement about Trump’s behavior than about the partisanship on steroids shown by the House Dems. Of course, Giffen is right, and Trump won’t be found guilty after this impeachment trial. However, I don’t know why he thinks Trump will pay a political price for it. It seems more likely it is the Dems in the House that will pay a political price, for wasting the government’s time out of partisan spite. CBC Politics should try a little harder not to be a sounding board for the DNC. Was there no Republican Vassy could have interviewed about this impeachment?

Dems asking for subpoena and such is them admitting the case they brought forward isn't good enough. In Bill Clinton's impeachment they investigated for almost 3 yrs. Over 1000 days and did go through the subpoena process in the house and came back with 11 high crimes and misdemeanors of which they passed it on to the Senate with strong bipartisan support. He was convicted. In this case the dems investigated for 75 days subpoena nobody. Had two barges and neither are technically crimes. If they were every president would have been impeached on the same grounds. Now they want a big show in the Senate but in truth they k ow they have nothing this is more of what this whole thing is which is a political grandstanding slander campaign. They have been calling for impeachment since he was elected and yet every issue they found everyday from day one to this day has disappeared and is not present in this impeachment so that means it was all no sense which we all know because the I vestigations into the matter came back ot guilty. So they have called for impeachment for 100 thi vs over three yrs and all were dead wrong and today all they have is a rushed show in the house in which bipartisan support was against impeachment and 2 non charges based on a phone call that had zero prid quo pro. Everyone knows ukraine is one of the most corrupt nations in the world and trump ain't about giving money away like actual politicians love to do. Buy people. Then set them against there own self interest and then blame on it on everyone else and everything else other then the actual source which is them and there policies and control of the media.

They all said before this started that they wanted it to go like the Bill Clinton impeachment trail and now the Democrats want amendments to change the game. The Democrats want Trump out of the White House forever. This is where you realize the Democrats are terrified of Trump for the next elections 9 months from now.

In any court, if you ask to subpoena new witnesses on trial day, or ask for any more time, then your case will be thrown out of court and the lawyers will be sanctioned!

@Eric Von Super, but we're not taking about what you imagine, we're talking about specific claims that you made about witnesses and your analogy of impeachment to a trial. Claims that are both factually untrue and logically deficient.
Eric Von
Eric Von Month ago
@Hyperpandas Democrats want this trial to take as much time as possible just to hurt Trump. There is no evidence or any of that non-sense of doing any wrongdoing. The whistleblower himself doesnt exist as it is Adam Schiff himself. Democrats will pay for it this coming November.
Hyperpandas

@Eric Von I'm actually showing you the flaws of your original comment and analogy. Do you seriously not recognize them yet? Ignoring the factual errors you've made, the analogy itself doesn't support your conclusions.

He's already impeached, the trial is underway. He won't be convicted of anything, as there are no crimes in the articles. He won't be removed from office and probably will win the next election by a long shot.

@kathy smith Trump is the opposite of a warmonger. He eased tensions in Korea, he opted not to attack Iran when they destroyed that drone and the military industrial complex and mainstream media were pushing him to retaliate. He also didn't pursue a war in the more recent tensions with Iran. He has explicitly stated he doesn't like war and will act to prevent it. What is one thing trump has done that makes you think he's a warmonger?
