        Susan Collins has all but committed to voting for new witnesses.
        Romney has said he wants John Bolton to testify.
        I’m sure Murkowski will also vote for more witnesses
        That means a 50/50 split if, everyone else votes along party lines.

        I assume Mike Pence would still have the role of casting the tie breaking vote in that case.

          Collins and murkowdki are “open to witnesses”. That does not mean new witnesses. It could be house witnesses. So here is how it could work
          1 they vote for new witnesses
          2 the vote passes
          3 POTUS asserts executive privilege
          4 there has to be a vote to take POTUS to court to pierce executive privilege.
          5 that vote will fail. Collins and company will not want any part of that.
          6 so they are back to no new witnesses.
          7. So Collins and company can claim to be moderate in calling for new witnesses. But claim to be supportive of separation of powers by not challenging executive privilege.

            All of this just ties the Senate up, which means no more judges get confirmed. No new trade deals get ratified.

            And it’s a double win for the Democrat establishment because it means Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are off the campaign trail, sealing the nomination for Biden.

                I have “burner” accounts on 3 Lib blogs/websites. DU is mostly college students, which is where I concentrate my effort. The impeachment as you stated above works great for college mutts. I rail about how the DNC is pushing this impeachment to keep Bernie and Warren off the campaign trial and how the DNC “burned the Bern” in 2016 primaries. And how we can’t allow this to happen in 2020. But if the DNC continues, I’m voting The Libertarian Party or won’t vote at all to teach the DNC a lesson. Of course, I use current abbreviations, no caps, and mostly phrases they have posted that I saved and cut/oaste sentences in as needed. It saves time and assures consistency. Some saw this is awful and misleading, I contend I’m saving their future until they “find a brain”. BTW, I’m not the only one doing this and I’m definitely not Russian.

            For example, the adoption of rules requires only a simple majority. Who breaks the tie in a 50/50 split? The Chief Justice? That seems wrong since his role is mostly ceremonial. It is only to oversee the proceeding and keep order, not to influence the outcome and most certainly not to cast a vote.

            The VP is still President of the Senate even during an impeachment, so he does have an official role, which includes tie-breaker.

      The Democrats have thoroughly debased impeachment as a serious Constitutional remedy for serious Presidential betrayals. It’s just completely sad what they have done. If the public is tired of impeachment, and I suspect most of the public is, then the best gift the GOP Senate can give people is a quick trial, a decisive acquittal, and an end to impeachment. If the Democrats try it again before the election, they will get destroyed in November. (They’ve hinted that they would keep submitting new articles of impeachment endlessly…I dare them to do this.)

      Anyway, my preferred solution dating back to November-ish was “dismiss all charges with prejudice”…don’t even give it the dignity of a trial. But, I can see the value of a quick acquittal, and the GOP has hung together so far. The no-witnesses path has the least amount of risks to a speedy acquittal, and I’ve always been in favor of that. There isn’t going to be some sort of Perry Mason grand resolution of Deep State treachery in a Senate impeachment trial. Better to acquit quickly, and then accelerate the process of getting all of these bad actors thrown the hell out of government employment.

      Acquit. Purge. Bait. Trap. Purge some more. And then let Durham collect several scalps.

        That summary works for me HOK. It is indeed sad but I think it’s becoming clear to many others what I’ve seen for some time. As much as this all started out as a coup to remove PDJT, the left has resigned that is not likely going to happen. The ONLY reason they move ahead is to chip away at the Constitution. Face it, the left is in complete disarray given SCOTUS, 180 judges, what PDJT has done with crime, unemployment, jobs, trade. The progressive agenda has been set back decades and all they have is to tear at the fabric, but that is in the open now. This impeachment debacle is proof their interest is to tear it down and they even have some folks convinced the President serves at the pleasure of Congress. It’s full on scorched earth on every institution right now and I think some folks are getting nervous, as well they should.

              American over-Thinker maybe. Their logic might hold water if this impeachment had been successful.

              This sort of strategy would fail for the same reason Trump impeachment is failing: the Judiciary is a separate but equal branch of government. The Judiciary as a whole would quickly sniff this out, and be able to block it.

              Look at that list of Trump judges, and tell me how many of those nearly 200 judges the Dems could a) convict AND remove and b) replace with a liberal judge…

              Not many. If they went after Kavanaugh like this, the blowback would be extreme, all the way through the “Trump” court system. Judges who might be inclined to swing left a bit on a thorny issue would throw the Dems out of court.

              The only thing Thinker gets right is this rage is about the Courts (in part), and the realization by Democrats that there isn’t a damn thing they can do about it.

              There is no master strategy here. This impeachment is raw unbridled emotion and rage finding an outlet. It’s going to be slapped down, and future emotional impeachment’s might hopefully be avoided.

                  I wrote a pretty long list of all the screw ups made by Lawfare just since August. All the stuff that hasn’t gone as planned. All the stuff that went the opposite as planned. All the things they thought would happen…but didn’t.

                  That’s the scam that Lawfare is running on the Democrats. They are CONTRACTORS. I was a government contractor for a decade. A large number of contractors exist on the premise that if you pay them lots of money, they will fix an unsolvable problem. When the problem goes unsolved, they staff UP and the government throws more money at it. The solution is always just over the next horizon.

                  That’s what Lawfare is doing to the Democrats. They are getting very, very, rich by running a fake impeachment and convincing Democrats that victory is just over the next horizon.

                  At some point, Democrats might actually figure this out. I doubt it, but if they do, the fallout is going to be spectacular!

Of particular interest is #35, discredit the FBI. They blame PDJT for his attack on that institution when in reality the damage was inflicted internally and the leaders. So yes, I fully appreciate the fact they think ahead and are patient; not as patient as the Chinese, but nonetheless patient.

      Schumer began the partisan pre-impeachment festivities when he grabbed the microphone at Donald Trump’s inauguration. The creep was not listed as a ‘speaker’ on the Inauguration Day Program, but he somehow managed to filch the moment just before the address, never once congratulating the President nor speaking his name.

      Schumer, who now sits as a juror, and will vote to remove the president, alluded to the Civil War, which did not make sense at the time, but appears now to have been the signal to start the battle in Congress to end Donald Trump’s presidency. I believe there has never been an opposition party pre-buttal to an inaugural address till that moment

    This country is nearing a point of no return on being either a Republic based on the rule of law and on the Constitution, or devolving into a separate group of nations, all pushed by these leftists.
    I am convinced that the left want a Civil War. They have been pushing it with Obama, with this call for impeachment since before Trump was elected, through the attempted coups, through removal of due process for the President while they run roughshod over the law, over the Constitutional guarantees, all for power.
    Schiff has shown he is a true Fascist. A totalitarian who would be far more at home in Stalinist Russia or Hitler’s Germany, where law mean nothing more than what those in power wanted the outcome to produce.
    We may be faced with an undesirable choice, either we stand up against this coup, or we submit. One road leads to great risk for all we have, one guarantees we lose all. The choice is becoming stark, and there will be no middle of the road.

      Stopping this coup is only the beginning: prepare for Coup #2 and the ones afterward.

      For nearly 90 years or for nearly 120 years, depending on your point of view, the republican ideal (small “r”) has been fading away, submerged by the desire of voters to vote themselves insurance, pensions, exemptions from taxation, discounts for electric cars, and on and on.

      The Founding Fathers would have been appalled by what has happened since McKinley. Congress has created a gigantic bureaucracy to create and enforce laws and regulations which now strangle not only our economy and our freedoms, but the government itself.

      The new generation – and many of the older generations – need to know about the ORIGINAL republican ideal, need to be taught why it is preferable, why free-market capitalism is the best choice for an economy, and why the Bill of Rights should never be curtailed for a Leftist agenda.

      Failure to accomplish that by 2030-2040 will mean the triumph of a surveillance state using computers with exabytes of memory and cameras and microphones everywhere sending pictures and sound to those computers.

        You have this right Ausonius. What we have here is but the opportunity to restore liberty.

        Some people are born freemen and others natural slaves. The new generations of freemen must be taught the principles of liberty which framed American Republic.

        Globalism is but the latest sinister face of tyranny. For near a century, the central bankers and their “state capitalists” have been methodically planning and implementing the fall of the Republic from within. They have done that by taking each plank of the Constitution, dangling shiny objects in front of Americans while convincing us how selfish, outdated, bigoted and racist our Republic is.

        Donald J Trump gave us a chance to begin the fight. The Globalists wait in the wings. They live in and control every American institution.

          Ironic that during the last century and a half there was a fight to end slavery but in the current century so many young people are willing to enslave themselves to the government masters in exchange for free stuff. Schools of today are actually teaching that capitalism is bad and that socialism is good. Granted, they cherry-pick the parts of Socialism that appeal to young people and hide the dark side. I have heard teenagers say that the government could end all poverty if they would just print more money and pass it out to the poor. Zero concept of economics. These kids are either high school seniors or grads. Who in their right mind is teaching this? Maybe I just answered my own question!
          The GND crowd obviously lives in cities where they cannot see what is happening. Where there once were forests, now there are forests of solar panels. Where once there were scenic views off mountaintops, now the mountains are topped with windmills. The crowd that is so concerned about the environment has no clue whatsoever about the damage these two things alone are doing to the environment. The environmentalists in California screamed about leaving the forests natural and pristine. Now they’re screaming about the massive wildfires that failure to think ahead have wrought.

    • “Goat,” I actually – and, despite all of this – continue to have utter faith in the People of this Country.

      One of the key reasons why I have this faith is that – well – that “they elected Donald Trump(!) in the first place!” What an utterly American thing to do!

      Once a year, the entire group of people who are responsible for all of this mischief are actually gathered together in one very-large room to hear the State of the Union Address. The entire House, the entire Senate, and the entire Supreme Court are all there. Approximately six hundred people, give or take.

      “Now, the nation.” At this particular instant, according to the “US Population Clock” website … 329,204,456 people. Gotcha. Given that this necessarily means that these lawmakers are out-numbered approximately 548,674-to-one, no, I see no compelling need to indulge in “Civil War.”

      Yes, we have lots and lots of problems, and we have lots and lots of criminals who need to be put in jail … and who, I think, very soon will be. “But, ‘we got this.'” We started this grand experiment in Nation Building more than 230 years ago, and these idiots are not going to prove to be anything more than “a four-or-so year long flash in the pan.” Civil War? Sorry …

        True appeasement would involve confiscation of firearms to render citizens into subjects. The Virginia debacle has temporarily showed the saner members of the Democratic party that they turned up the heat on the frog-boiling pot too much and too fast. The push to register weapons and eliminate currency is part of the strategy. Force everyone to go online for their finances. Then cut off access to funds unless hated evil guns are turned in.

        Fools who believe their own hype. The Aus buyback maybe got a third of the weapons. the New Zealand buy-back got far less. Haven’t they heard of a thing called the black market? Called barter? If governments restrict or eliminate currency, people will find a substitute.

  22. “Well, unfortunately for our country, what they are now saying to us is true.” After 230+ years where the various (now, “600 or so”) most-senior officers of our Federal Government fairly-automatically regarded their Offices as “sacred,” we are finally faced with Rogues. The very thing that our Founders feared. The very thing that the statesman who right-now occupies a prominent position on our $10 bill wrote about in Federalist 65.

    “Lawfare, Inc.” thinks that it’s a perfectly splendid idea to simply transform the US Senate into an extension of what they have so-far been able to inflict upon the House. But (and despite the protestations of Mr. Schumer …) at this late juncture I really do decide to place some faith in our Founder’s faith in the Senate. Now that this matter has finally been advanced to the consideration of this higher House of Congress, I do indeed look to them to be “the adults in the room.” And, quite frankly, I want to hear them asking “WTF?!?!?! questions.”

    • To my way of thinking: “Both sides … go ahead … just let them talk.” Let the US Senate hear absolutely everything that either of them have to say. Until, finally, both of them decide to stop talking.

      Then, let the US Senate cross-examine. Let them “try … impeachments.” (Not merely the individuals accused.) Let them cross-examine not only the accusations but also the accusers.

      For the very first time in this nation’s history, this Senate is faced with charges that don’t correspond with any violation of the United States Code. For the very first time, we see an overt attempt to “pass a Bill of Attainder.” However, we must also recognize that the statesman who right now lives on the $10 bills in our wallets fully anticipated this.

As for the submitted questions, rebutting will be difficult! They want documents. Okie dokie!! Here they come—doctored 302s, data on illegal searches, corrupt agents conspiring with foreigners to plant money on PapaD, filtering “research” through the Ohrs into the Intel community, spying on citizens and then getting court authorization, illegally using government resources for party motives, etc. If only 10% goes to see the light of day, this faux impeachment will have served a glorious purpose.

    This process is so risible that it’s worth Trump himself stating that any *success* would result in a constitutional crisis. In other words, Trump should state on behalf of his supporters that this process is corrupt and defective and any “conviction” is apriori invalid and will not be accepted or recognized and, further, it would be necessary to attempt removal of him by force.

    This is Trump stating he is prepared to initiate war rather than submit to this sham. Trump should state this loudly and give his supporters time to prepare. Enough is enough. This type of effort should be stomped to death in its infancy.

    If DOJ were functional, the cast of characters involved would all be more worried about defending charges of corruption and sedition than taking a second whack at the remove Trump apple.

    Sedition is a crime perpetrated against the voters. The voters fairly elected Trump.

    It is obvious that DOJ is not functional and they are now just dragging the process out and trying to run out the clock. The IG after 3 years couldn’t determine the difference between his head and a hole in the ground, and this permitted what was obvious criminal activity to further metastasize into this bogus impeachment. This is an impeachment so utterly ridiculous it is better defended by comedians than lawyers.

    Voters elected Trump. If you wish to remove him, prepare yourselves for an insurrection. Because most of us are pissed off enough to just have it out.

    “The republican led senate has sided with Trump and has denied the American people justice. The people will take this into their hands in November by voting him out of office.”

    This will be their cover for the ultra massive voter fraud they are planning to commit. Don’t laugh, we have all seen enough things happen that we would never in our wildest dreams have thought possible.

    Recognizing that anecdotal evidence is not evidence, I was a bit taken aback yesterday by a post in FB from my one overtly liberal friend; I have other libtardian friends, but I think of them as closeted liberals because they work in conservative business climates and keep their mouths shut. I’d also posit many of them end up voting republican anyway. There’s been an interesting trend to this gal’s posts over the Trump presidency. Initially of course, they were all about his being a racistbigotsexisthomophobe until suddenly they weren’t. She’s a white woman with a black husband and when that happened it made me wonder, had the lifting of all boats lifted some boats she cared about such that maybe, of a sudden, PDJT isn’t a rbsh? And then at some point, she quit yapping about the cages at the border, and the volume of yapping in general dropped noticeably over this period of time until I realized yesterday, I’d basically seen nothing political from her for a good number of weeks. And suddenly up she pops, posting a picture of mini-Mike with the observation that ‘Bloomberg can beat Trump, I am not convinced any of the other candidates can. I still love Bernie but Trumps got to go. IMHO’ She only got two thumbs up; very unusual that! She actually gave her opinion as an opinion (the IMHO), not as holy writ. I’m also pretty sure she can’t possibly think mini can win (I read somewhere the other day that he was likely to blow $200,000,000 tilting at this windmill and not earn a single delegate) but she can’t let it all go. But her entire on-line trajectory over the last thousand days makes me wonder if there are even more of them crumbling than we know… I pray it be so!

    Notice Warren brought up that a woman could not win and attributed that to Sanders. That statement was orchestrated to work for Hillary, whether Warren knew it or not.
    Why come out with a series discussion now?! HRC wants to capture attention and justify why she lost and is doing so to persuade the democrat “no more Clintons” that she’s the one to beat Trump.
    To anyone that says she’s got too much baggage or she should be in prison, well It has been three years, and it’s not going to happen.
    HRC has caused (thick as thieves with Soros and ANTIFA terrorist group) so much public discourse since losing. Every action Clinton has taken has been to ruin President Trump. Knowing in doing so,Hillary is stabbing the back of every citizen in the very country she claims to care about.
    There has been no one that’s lost a presidential election that has ever spoken and/or taken the actions she has to hurt the stability of this country. The way Hillary has behaved is like a spoiled, entitled, enraged child that didn’t get their way. That behavior alone, should turn off anyone regardless of party affiliation and/or belief system.
    The policies and corruption under Obama was suppose to continue. Think of Iran’s policy. Their terrorist organization would be even stronger. The economy, continued destruction of the United States. At least Trump is shining some light on our cities in ruin. This didn’t happen overnight so don’t expect Trump to fix it quickly. It’s systemic, however at least it’s being discussed!! Under Obama and Hillary it would have continued to be ignored.
    The thought of Clinton rearing her corrupt, anti-American head up for President sickens me.
