No one should blame New York One station managers for not wanting to continue spending hard earned advertising dollars on hair dye and make-up on aging women broadcasters, when it would be so much easier to just replace them with younger women with less upkeep, which is exactly what they did.

Constitution Article I Section 3. "...Judgment in Cases of Impeachment...but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law." Comment: Does this not make it clear that a high crime was presumed to be an indictable offence?

The democrats are doing this to distract from the fact that they are worthless pieces of CRAP. They collect their paychecks while the American Middle Class lays in ruin. They FAILED to bring back the jobs that were Out-Sourced Overseas to Communist China. Eight years of Obama as POTUS and the Democrats got nothing to show for it. ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS.

think of any crime, court in the world, and here are the facts, 1 - the victim of the crime says there was no crime 2 - Obama never sold Ukraine javelin missiles, Trump did 3 - the witnesses were asked if they had any firsthand knowledge of any material facts, and they answered "No" , so no witnesses 4 - read the fully released transcript, there is nothing there - seriously, NOTHING 5 - quid pro quo is not an impeachable defense, but when the President was asked by Sondland if that is what he meant, he said "I want nothing, there is no quid pro quo" 6 - the Dems blocked a bill for money for dead veterans children, but passed a bill for illegal immigrants to get free money 7 - the President DID NOT ASK the Ukraine to interfere in American elections, he asked the Ukraine to investigate corruption 8 - Joe Biden admitted on video, he threatened the Ukraine to fire a prosecutor, or not get a billion dollars 9 - Hunter Biden gets a million dollars per year, for nothing, but because he's a Biden, he must never be investigated 10 - Bill Clinton signed into law in 1999, that the USA and the Ukraine must work together on corruption (just google "clinton ukraine corruption 1999") 11 - Obama wiretapped Trump, this is now a known fact, who was interfering ? 12 - Schiff has been caught lying repeatedly, he said he saw the damning russian evidence, but Mueller had nothing; he said he did and then didn't speak to the whistleblower 13 - the Intel community changed the definition of "whistleblower" just before this whistleblower came forward, so that they could call him a "whistleblower" - thefederalist.com/2019/10/01/intel-community-admission-of-whistleblower-changes-raises-explosive-new-questions/ Am I living in Bizarro world, I'm ok with people not liking Trump, but this is crazy world....

The Alan Dershowitz logic: "If I had a "happy ending" massage from a minor, it would not rise to a criminal offense -- because I did not take my underwear off."

@Fred The truth hurts--both Dershi-shits and "John Barron" are dotards with ED. And in the words of the North Koreans, "We don't care about what that mad dogs may utter because we've already heard enough."

This is what Adam Schiff did with Mr Trump's phone call. He put his own words into another person's mouth, a despicable way to argue a legal point: ad hominem.

Dershowitz - a Trump cult supporter, who believes in the misogyny, racism, and homophobia in the Iron Age biblical text, and a genocidal god that advocated for the rape of women and children, and murdered the entire population of the world other than Noah and his incestuous family.

The media has been ATTACKING Dershowicz for his position on this impeachment. Its an all out example of just how partisan and pro democrat the media has become. Dershowicz is a huge Democrat and no fan of Trump but he is showing how unbiased and truthful he us when it comes to THE LAWS. He reminds me of that Johnathan Turley, a self described Democrat and does not like Trump but these men are being HONEST, TRUTHFUL, and showing amazing CHARACTER because these legal scholars are simply articulating that President Trump's actions do not meet criteria of any high crimes, misdemeanors, or anything that meets criteria for conviction and removal. The media on the other hand dont care about the truth, its shameful whats going on. Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, and Schumer looks like a bunch of corrupt partisan and totally incompetent fools! I think the democrats are displaying a total lack of confidence. Why I say? Clearly the Democrats who have done nothing in last few years except throwing weak accusations, investigations, and politicized government agencies to try and remove Trump from office. Its a waste of our tax dollars, and makes the democrats look shameful and weak.....This whole thing is stupid, let the voters decide in November, thats how we do it in America!

❌ Alan Stinks-Like-Shit is a Lying Pedophile POS and he should just disappear from the courts or altogether, his bank accounts should be scrutinized for where funds are transferred from. Trump Bribed Ukraine by withholding help against Russia and he committed Treason by Selling Out our country to Russia

Holding almost a half a billion dollars of aid from a country that is being invaded... unless they can make a public announcement regarding an investigation into Trumps political rival, that doesn't rise to the level of impeachment? Alan, I really wonder what they have over you for you to embarrass yourself into defending such a treasonous POTUS.

Does anyone have even a basic understanding of our judicial system? Prosecutors, with the full power of the state and the police behind them, pursue criminal charges. Defense attorneys defend the accused. The defense attorney’s obligation is to provide a vigorous defense. It is not their job to determine guilt. It is the jury’s job to determine guilt. Dershowitz is not going to jail or hell or any other negative place for properly defending his clients.

Hey ABC, do you think your efforts at rhetorical manipulations in support of the DNC aren't transparent to your audience? You asked Dershowitz about the constitutionality of the charges. When he made an argument that they were not, rather then engage his argument, you attacked him as a partisan. None of this is journalism. None of you are journalists. You're DNC operatives, a fact you don't hide convincingly.

I agree, if there is previous legal precedence, then it could end up an open and shut case, this is on Democrats, they fumbled the ball, tried to rush the Impeachment, didn't want to call witnesses that they knew the President had executive privilege over because it would delay and stall their case building for months maybe even a year+, Duh! that's the way it is, now they are wanting the Senate, A Republican-majority Senate to top it off, to help their case to Impeach Donald J Trump a Republican President and remove him from office, where is the logic in all this? Oh! Righteousness, I forgot! They should just commit Party Harakiri by betraying Their Party President and half the country that voted for him, oh, and on the subject of the majority popular vote that Hillary supposedly got, I am 1000% convinced that there were millions of voters that supported Trump but decided not to go vote that last day because it was a waste of their time because even they did not think he'd win, way more than the late Hillary voters that didn't bother going that last day to vote because they were convinced (Thanks to the Media) that she was going to win by the largest margin in Presidential Election History. it's all about odds of winning and the truth of expectations determine your real enthusiasm, believe me on this, if there was #1 A party to go to or #2 Stand in line for hours to vote for Donald J Trump, there were many more that just went to that party early to get sauced

Impeachment trial is a formal house of representives (lawmakers) meeting. Every stipulations derived from such meeting will be legally standing at as highly as US constitutions. An impeachment trial agenda had been voted during such meeting on december. They all were in agreement, by the law, that such matters are impeachable conducts.

Wealthy, old congressmen and presidents are making money on their political positions, and they fight tooth and nail to hang onto their cushy seats. They submit to their constituency to obtain re-election. -- MAGA doesn't mean Make America great. It means make some of America greater (at the expense of everyone else if necessary).
