No, they never wanted Donald J. Trump to be President.
We know that. No news there. It was a disappointing beginning regarding the impeachment hearing on Trump’s side. More than disappointing. It was a walk away for the Democrats. They were locked and loaded with a full blown Case in Chief with Trump’s attorneys caught flat footed. Apparently they thought two hours of arguments for each witness amendment didn’t include them for the most part.
What did they think was going to happen when the Democrats were given this time? Wise old crusty McConnell had to know what the Dems would do with the time. Schiff came with the requisite audio-visuals straight from the House proceedings. Of course not the statements that had been disproven by Trump’s attorneys. The most Trump’s attorney could muster at times was “can’t we get the trial started?’ Hate to tell them but it was well underway. First impressions mean everything. Those who may not have followed the House hearing got the full bore evidence as they determined it to be.
Even stalwart conservative commenters last night had to ask how did the Lev Parnas and other information presented ever allowed that was not even in the House proceedings.
Where was the fire and brimstone? The righteous indignation?
No surprise here. I was no doubt one of about a dozen who managed to sit through the entire House hearing. I knew what was coming. I knew the counter arguments to these witnesses. Did not Trump’s attorneys listen as well?
No question there will be witnesses.
OK….that’s my opinion. What’s yours?
Here is something to help us buck up!
Everything swell in the swamp, Super swampy today.
