Just made the mistake of flipping the TV to CNN (yeah, I know).. one guy, in reference to the Bolton manuscript, was screeching about this being a "game changer"...

I'm surprised they're not doing nonstop coverage of the Kobe Bryant helicopter crash.

I had to switch it to Fox this morning. Seems they're a bit nervous about Bolton. Saying "Well, I think the President's legal team should go with the defense that even if he said that it's not illegal and not impeachable and move on. They won't get 20 republican senators to vote with the democrats anyway".

At least they're being honest today.

I’m still of the thinking you won’t see a witness testify. At this point it seems the GOP doesn’t care. It’s about weathering the storm. They know what he did, this don’t like it, but they’re not willing to go on record and impeach him. They know he’ll be out of office next November or four years later and they will still be there. They only way they won’t is if they run afoul of their Hitler and he “puts their head on a pike”. Status quo, weather the storm, get back to business once he’s gone. But at all cost don’t lose seats because your party turns against you. If Dems defeat them in races so be it. But they’re not gonna cannibalize themselves.

The problem with that philosophy is that the status isn’t quo anymore. The slow March of executive branch supremacy is in its final stage. If a president can choose to ignore congressional oversight and suffer no consequences for it, why would any future president agree to any amount of congressional oversight? This isn’t a genie you can put back in the bottle.

Correct. The GOP is overplaying their hand no doubt. they’re thinking individual protectionism at the expense of the party as a whole. Never has a majority been more important in Congress.

We'll just forget about the witnesses that have said that Bolton said the same to them, cause they're in on it to help Bolton's book.

There are 52 senators who are able to lie to themselves that this POS is innocent.   It amazes me the lack of courage we have.

I’m not even surprised that the “persuadeables” believe and defend trump, Cambridge analytical took care of that a long time ago. But what we’ve lost in this country since Nixon are congressmen with moral courage.  
Moral courage?  Ehhh, that's being pretty generous.  Was it really morally courageous to turn against Nixon when he is on tape discussing using the FBI and CIA to cover up the crime.  While maybe not 100% on party lines, it was still very partisan until the Nixon tapes started coming out, and then the "smoking gun" tape was the final straw.  

The media has been saying a lot of revisionism about the Republican congressmen (congresspeople) during the Nixon stuff.  Well, if not revisionism per se, it's been over-simplification, as they seem to just focus on where the Congressmen stood at the end of everything, not throughout the whole process.  I don't know what the polls were like then, but I doubt many of those "morally courageous" congressmen felt that they were putting their re-election bids on the line by turning on Nixon.  Then and now, these people only care about protecting their current and future candidacies.  And I mean all of them, Dems and Pubs.

Called my senators. Remember, Wyoming. And they both have changed their tune a bit in their response to me asking them to vote for witnesses. They are being much less combative and much more careful in choosing their words. I still think it won’t happen, but I’ve moved a tick away from certain.

If the GOP Senators decide to have witnesses (actually witnesses.. not Hunter Biden), I will person donate 20 dollars to the Mio Church of Christ in the support of Guest and his perpetual search for truth.

Bob Barr told the mainstream media and the mainstream media told stupid Americans that Mueller didn't amount to shit.

Mueller actually issued 30+ indictments.. directly/indirectly related to Mueller: Roger Stone is in jail, Michael Cohen is in jail, Paul Manafort is in jail, Papadopalous was in jail, Michael Flynn is going to jail, etc.

next up for the mainstream media to promote to its faithful viewers: impeach Hunter Biden and remove him from office.

This impeachment is over. Republican lawyers only gonna use a couple hours because “they don’t feel they need anymore time”

Derpawitz summed it up. “Even if the revelation in Bolton’s book is true, it’s not impeachable”, case closed.

Sad to see the senate bow at the alter to the executive branch. How may we serve you, master.

For the record, I thought Pelosi should have started the impeachment inquiry as soon as Mueller issued his report. She should have subpoenaed everyone who refused to cooperate with Mueller, she should have held in contempt of Congress anyone who didn't comply with the subpoenas, and we could have been having the Senate impeachment trial two years ago, give or take. But none of that happened, and nothing came of the Mueller report. By the parameters of the wager, Goose was correct.

I do my best to stay away from pie-like food stuffs.

I'd love to have 'ol Guest back but he'd need to toughen up a little. I don't want him to be here if it's not in the best interest of his well-being.

Nothing in the trial matters to the ultimate outcome of the trial.

Realistically, this is all setting pieces on the table for the 2020 election campaigns, from the presidential race down to congressional races, so witnesses matter for having that on the record.

True.

Ironically, in the end, it could play out that senators voting against witnesses could be more beneficial to Dems. Politicians watch polls. The quinnipiac poll may have played a roll.

if there were witness testimony, which there won't be, Americans would be able to hear the truth without the mainstream media/GOP filter.

Those that pay attention, anyway.. which would be, like, 12 people.

yeah.. this whole "they don't have enough votes to block witnesses" thing is carefully crafted to make the Senate look appear as though they're "concerned" about the racist, bigoted christian sexual predator's anti-America actions, words and behaviors... but ultimately, though prayer, they'll realize that their "concern" is not worthy of hearing testimony.
