I’ve address the “this is the equivalent of a grand jury” BS before, and pointed out what Bga did, that it is done out of the public view to protect the accused from an assumption of guilt. It’s interesting, though, that you say it’s “not a court of law”, but use legal proceedings to compare it to. That’s dumb.It's not a court of law at all and nothing you're whining about applies. Trump will get a chance to present his side at the Senate Trial. We are now at the equivalent of Grand Jury proceedings and no the accused don't get to call witnesses at that point in the process. Trump abused the power of the Presidency to attempt to extort a foreign country to help him politically. It's very impeachable whether or not it's illegal. Need we play you Little Lindsey Graham's comments on impeachment again?
It’s also amazing that you say that “Trump will get a chance to present his side at the Senate Trial”. You were outraged when Barr wrote his Mueller conclusions letter b/c we had to wait a few weeks to get the full Mueller Report, and the Barr letter was an accurate reflection of the Mueller findings. Here, Schiffshow and Pelosi concluded him guilty after hearing the news media’s bogus representation of the so-called WB account and are taking months before Trump will get a chance to defend himself. Hypocrite.
It’s also remarkable that you lefties want to lower the bar for impeachment when removal from office via impeachment should require a high standard when overturning the will of the people and our electoral system. It’s a dangerous precedent that you and “the fellas” appear to have no qualms about using in order to get the outcome that you want.
