Makes no sense why House Republicans want Senate to bring in Schiff and Pelosi for hearing at trial. What would those two even provide that would be of use to impeachment trial? It's not like the two had any involvement in the Ukraine issue at hand beyond heading the intelligence committee in Schiff's case & Pelosi being the Speaker. Only thing you can ask is if Schiff had direct contact with the whistleblower. He has already said he did not and does not know the identity of the whistleblower. That's all you can ask him about that he had potential involvement in. Fine, bring him in but in return, bring in John Bolton.

What does Pelosi have to do with anything other than saying she supports impeachment? She wasn't even involved in the three committees in the inquiry process. Fine, bring her in for whatever random reason and in return, bring in Mulvaney.

Even Senate Republicans are questioning whether Schiff and Pelosi should be brought in, in direct contradiction to House Republicans. They know it would be a waste of time to bring in Schiff/Pelosi. The whistleblower is also legally protected from showing his identity afaik and its not like he had direct involvement in the Ukraine issue like the other 1st hand witnesses. House Republicans like Trump's b!tch Nunes/Jordan/Stefanik just being morons. Not even Senate Republicans think it does them any good to be wasting time on Schiff/Pelosi/protected whistleblower. They are better off bringing in Hunter Biden. Democrats should also request Bolton. I think Bolton stands the best chance of flipping on Lil Donny.

Lol, I don't think YOU know how impeachment works. It's right there in the text you chose to ignore.

Second, the House of Representatives must pass, by a simple majority of those present and voting, articles of impeachment, which constitute the formal allegation and allegations. Upon passage, the defendant has been "impeached."

It's almost more certain now than ever that Trump will be impeached.

Anyways, I don't think Donald cares what was said about Barron because I don't think he cares much for Barron to begin with. He was too busy cheating on Melinia with Stormy Daniels while Barron was still in the womb and even after Barron was born. That was 100x worse done to baby Barron than what was said by the Professor (and later apologized for by her after the break).


See Clinton, William Jefferson you stupid 2 faced liberal faggot

Pretty much. I hope they don't think they're fooling anyone. They don't want to contend around the facts of the impeachment inquiry, so they're looking for ways to obfuscate and muffle the process. With Pelosi and Schiff, they're looking to make the argument that this impeachment saga is purely political, unfair and illegitimate. If they can push that narrative, they believe they can shift or at least relieve focus from what Trump did and make all of this about the Democrats. It's the Mark Furman gambit.

With Joe and Hunter Biden, they're looking to create confusion as to whether Trump could have been in the right for wanting Ukraine to launch an investigation into the Bidens and the DNC, regardless of the illegality in how he and his minions went about it. Just having them testify is an attempt to again make this about something other than Trump's request that a foreign government announce an investigation into a political rival. As Sondland testified, this wasn't even about an actual investigation, but rather the announcement of such.

Lev Parnas (indicted friend of Rudy Giuliani) was apparently in touch with Devin Nunes regarding the dirt he was trying to help Rudy dig up in Ukraine, and has even said that he helped Nunes and a staffer set up a trip overseas to speak with Ukrainian officials. They even attended multiple meetings on the subject in the US according to Parnas' attorney... meetings that another individual, journalist John Solomon (remember how that name plays into all of this?), who also attended the meetings, acknowledged they took place. I wonder if Senate Republicans will call Parnas, Nunes and his staffer, and Solomon to testify. I expect they won't.

No surprise here...

Trump 'Routinely' Made Sensitive Calls on Open Lines

Donald Trump has routinely communicated with his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and other individuals speaking on mobile phones vulnerable to monitoring by Russian and other foreign intelligence services, say current and former US officials.

US officials said that Mr Giuliani would have been considered a target of Russian intelligence efforts from early in Mr Trump's presidency, and that it is assumed that the Kremlin intensified its surveillance of the president's lawyer when he turned his focus to Ukraine – a former Soviet republic and target of Kremlin aggression where Russian intelligence has made deep inroads – late last year.

“That would definitely put him on the radar,” said a US official who, like others, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters. “There's no way around that.”

Other officials went further, saying Mr Trump's conduct has become a matter of renewed concern among senior officials at the White House after repeated attempts to break him of his habit of speaking on his own mobile or to others using unsecured lines

Former White House chief of staff John Kelly and intelligence officials made a concerted attempt in 2017 to get Mr Trump to use secure White House lines, even after the president had retreated to the residence in the evenings, officials said. But when Mr Trump realized that this enabled Mr Kelly to compile daily logs of his calls, and the identities of those he was speaking to, Mr Trump became annoyed and reverted to using his mobile, officials said. “He was totally paranoid that everyone knew who he was talking to,” a former senior administration official said.

meh, the senate is more serious than the clown show that is the house. they don't have to play to individual districts. i can't see them pulling reality tv stunts like calling shiff or pelosi to the stand. especially not with hnic roberts overseeing proceedings.

No one's petrified of a cuck that allows his rally to get taken over while he stands in the background looking at the floor like a nerd that got his Hershey's stolen

The personal attorney of Rudy Giuliani's indicted associate Lev Parnas has questioned Devin Nunes' claim that he was not able to confirm whether he'd had a phone conversation with Parnas.

Parnas' lawyer Joseph Bondy said that Parnas "remembers" what the pair allegedly spoke about in a tweet directed at Nunes yesterday, responding to the California representative's claim that he was "not able to confirm" whether the pair had any phone conversation.

The attorney's latest swipe at the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee followed the panel's release of call logs supposedly involving Nunes, Parnas and Giuliani, published Tuesday in its impeachment report.

This is getting interesting.

Before I get accused of being biased, I thought Hillary was foolish for communicating classified material over personal server. Just like I believe Trump is a fool for doing the same. Trump actually went a step further - disregarded DoD flags and gave high clearances to people like his own family with red flags on background checks.
