    PDJT Says he may show up and sit in the front row. Now that would be a Schiffbag buster. The defendant has a right to face his accuser.

      Nothing to be gained by POTUS attending the Schiff Show, but a GOP senator should invite Tom Shillue to come and stare down the ringleader. Now I’d stay up to watch that.

                They don’t care what the Senate does – they know they don’t have a case and they know the President will not be removed from office. This is all about creating a media narrative of a “cover-up” by Republicans which they will then use in November against Senators in close races, hoping to flip the Senate back into Democratic control so that President Trump won’t be able to appoint any more Supreme Court Justices.

                  Yep. But here is the problem. The other argument to the voter is do you want more gridlock and impeachment? If you elect more Dems there will be more impeachment and nothing gets done. The scotus is interesting. They could deny his pick a vote. Here is the delicious problem. Breyer and rbg are the oldest at 86 and 81. If they die or retire, the balance swings on a vacancy. So it goes 5-3 or 5-2. Trump still wins if the Dems do a Merrick Garland and stall. Clarence Thomas is only 71.

          For your information (from Wiki):

          United States
          For more than 100 years, courts in the United States have held that, according to the United States Constitution, a criminal defendant’s right to appear in person at their trial, as a matter of due process, is protected under the Fifth, Sixth, and Fourteenth Amendments.

          In 1884, the Supreme Court of the United States held that

          the legislature has deemed it essential to the protection of one whose life or liberty is involved in a prosecution for felony, that he shall be personally present at the trial, that is, at every stage of the trial when his substantial rights may be affected by the proceedings against him. If he be deprived of his life or liberty without being so present, such deprivation would be without that due process of law required by the Constitution.

          Hopt v. Utah 110 US 574, 28 L Ed 262, 4 S Ct 202 (1884).

          A similar holding was announced by the Arizona Court of Appeals in 2004 (based on Arizona Rules of Criminal Procedure):

          A voluntary waiver of the right to be present requires true freedom of choice. A trial court may infer that a defendant’s absence from trial is voluntary and constitutes a waiver if a defendant had personal knowledge of the time of the proceeding, the right to be present, and had received a warning that the proceeding would take place in their absence if they failed to appear. The courts indulge every reasonable presumption against the waiver of fundamental constitutional rights.

          State v. Whitley, 85 P.3d 116 (2004) (Depublished Opinion).

          Although United States Congress codified this right by approving Rule 43 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure in 1946 and amended the Rule in 1973, the right is not absolute.

          Rule 43 provides that a defendant shall be present

          at the arraignment,
          at the time of the plea,
          at every stage of the trial including the impaneling of the jury and the return of the verdict and
          at the imposition of sentence.

          However, the following exceptions are included in the Rule:

          the defendant waives his or her right to be present if he or she voluntarily leaves the trial after it has commenced,
          if he or she persists in disruptive conduct after being warned that such conduct will cause him or her to be removed from the courtroom,
          a corporation need not be present, but may be represented by counsel,
          in prosecutions for misdemeanors, the court may permit arraignment, plea, trial, and imposition of sentence in the defendant’s absence with his or her written consent, and
          the defendant need not be present at a conference or argument upon a question of law or at a reduction of sentence under Rule 35 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure.

          Indeed, several U.S. Supreme Court decisions have recognized that a defendant may forfeit the right to be present at trial through disruptive behavior,[26] or through his or her voluntary absence after trial has begun.[27]

          In 1993, the Supreme Court revisited Rule 43 in the case of Crosby v. United States.[28] The Court unanimously held, in an opinion written by Justice Harry Blackmun, that Rule 43 does not permit the trial in absentia of a defendant who is absent at the beginning of trial.

          This case requires us to decide whether Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 43 permits the trial in absentia of a defendant who absconds prior to trial and is absent at its beginning. We hold that it does not. …The Rule declares explicitly: “The defendant shall be present…at every stage of the trial…except as otherwise provided by this rule” (emphasis added). The list of situations in which the trial may proceed without the defendant is marked as exclusive not by the “expression of one” circumstance, but rather by the express use of a limiting phrase. In that respect the language and structure of the Rule could not be more clear.

          However, the Crosby Court reiterated an 80-year-old precedent that

          “Where the offense is not capital and the accused is not in custody, …if, after the trial has begun in his presence, he voluntarily absents himself, this does not nullify what has been done or prevent the completion of the trial, but, on the contrary, operates as a waiver of his right to be present and leaves the court free to proceed with the trial in like manner and with like effect as if he were present.”[29] Diaz v. United States, 223 U.S. at 455 [1912] (emphasis added).

          Some state laws provide for automatic retrial of fugitives who are arrested after being convicted in absentia.[30]

    I would think the Trump Team would keep their response to a single day. And if Saturday is a trial day, then the process can proceed to the next phase of Senate written questions on Monday, with Sunday available to the Senators to think up their questions.

Unless..your intent is to damage the prosecution. now that’s an entirely different matter.

    I wonder why the Dems didn’t use outside lawyers to argue their case?

    Maybe the rules don’t allow it or could it be outside lawyers don’t want to be on record making some of the “crazy” statements that Shifty and Nadler are making?

    And if outside lawyers made these statements and if there they were somehow proven to be knowingly false, could that be an issue with the bar association??

    It almost feels like nobody else wanted to be the actual mouthpiece other than Shifty.

    Does he just like to talk or does he have possibly something to keep hidden???

    Does it seem like just maybe that Shifty is arguing in some way to protect himself.

      Their lawyers, per Schiff’s own released summaries of testimony “were in charge of the House Hearings”. For the crossover voters and the lemmings beginning to look up to see where this is headed, the optics were horrible. There were un-elected lawyers actually running the impeachment inquiries and doing all the work the House Democrats were supposed to do. Also, the hired lawyers got their heads handed to them by the elected Republican House Members.

      So, they are going for a reversal on the optics plus, the “evil” Republicans can’t shred the case by asking questions directly to the House Managers.

      Keep in mind, the one thing McConnell’s publicized rules do out spell out is the deposition process for witnesses. Would be interesting if the depositions are done behind closed doors, under oath and with both sides able to challenge relevance in front of the Chief Justice before being allowed into the trial. It is key to remember, McConnell invoked Federal Court Rules of Evidence as part of the rules.

    5) Point out this was so urgent it had to be voted on before Christmas, then was held for a month.
    6) Point out the phone call transcript is available for all to read, so Vinkman’s complaint about conversation was a policy dispute.

      One on the evidence, correcting misleading impressions and false conclusions from the prosecutor.
      One to argue that what Trump’s differences with the DEMs in Congress is normal tension between exec and Congress … the “not impeachable” argument, however they choose to frame it.
      Maybe a third to probe the origins of the complaint, how ICIG atkinson knew and knows that POTUS in not in his jurisdiction, colluding with Schiff, etc. The “dirty process” stuff. This is arguably irrelevant to the outcome of the trial, but it is relevant to Congressional oversight.

        I hope the defense corrects the record of the videos. Schiff and company selectively edited footage of POTUS. According to senators these selectively edited clips made an impression on them. Apparently many of them have a pre-schoolers ability to discern editing🙄

        The full clips need to shown in context, because these bozos really pay attention to video.

        Then for good measure to prove their point, do some creative editing of their own. The possibilities are endless, but it will only be to prove their point. Probably best to stick to something historical to show how deceptive editing can shade perception. I know using the house managers is a big temptation though

        Perhaps that comment by Senator Graham to Congressman Schiff was just a “Bless your heart” moment. In fact the first few minutes introduction of Schiff’s two and a half you harangue actually sounded civilized. The rest was nonsense of course.

      That’s that nature of every trial. Prosecutor goes first, and the jury usually figures the case is pretty good.
      Then the defense goes and the jury’s conclusion flips 180 degrees.
      As for how the press is going to treat things, same as usual. If anything damaging to the DEMs comes out, the press will either ignore it or summarily dismiss it as debunked.
      Plus, both sides have resort to the entire space outside of the trial venue. DEMs will fling new accusations continuously.

    What this trial allows IMO is for Americans to pause and compile the list of frauds, potential crimes and coverups that the DS has done over the past 10-12 years.

    Just look at all of this that these people have done to this country, this President and pulled on Americans.

    1) Russia Collusion Fraud
    2) Dossier Fraud
    3) Counter Intelligence Fraud
    4) FISA Abuse Fraud
    5) FIB Contractor Abuse & searching Americans Cover Up
    6) HRC Non Secure Server Fraud & Cover UP
    7) HRC 33K e-mail cover up
    8) DMC Server Hacking Fraud and Cover Up
    9) Seth Rich Murder was it also a Cover up?
    10) Uranium One Sell out and Cover Up
    11) Hammer Program Evidence Cover Up
    12) Mifsud’s phones and known status as ALYWAS being a western agent
    13) Wiener Laptop Cover Up
    14) Millions of FIB and DOJ texts, emails and phone communication cover up
    15) Are they Ignoring first hand witnesses such as Cain and Assange?
    16) Ukraine call and WB fraud that began impeachment
    17) Ukraine video of quid pro quo and no action to date
    18) Ukraine Rudy evidence to State Dept is that another Cover Up?
    19) Ukraine money laundering of US taxpayer monies back into American’s pockets
    20) Non stop leaking of classified info by government officials
    21) The framing and withholding of exculpatory evidence on Gen. Flynn as stated by Sidney
    22) Jeffery Epstein alleged crimes and is his death cover up also?

    I mean look at this list of what appears to be massive fraud and cover ups with many for the sole purpose to take down a sitting President.

    It’s looks like 12 years of a playbook of massive corruption IMO!

    Ask yourself……

    Is it even possible with ALL of the crap listed above, that there is not one crime in ANY of it???

    Is it even possible to think that not one person can be indicted and sent to prison and that ALL of this was just an honest mistake and just poor policy?

    Come Spring/Summer if we the people don’t have anything other than more BS and cover up mumbo jumbo then IMO the march that needs to happen is the million person march on the DOJ and FIB buildings IMO, demanding answers and full accountability & declassification from AG Barr.

    This list of what appears to be massive fraudulent schemes and cover ups MUST be given full transparency and exposed completely to the American people otherwise IMO our DOJ and FIB are NO different than what we are seeing from the Dems in the House.

    IMO in the end if these frauds and cover ups are allowed then that is just as bad as those who have made up these frauds and cover up schemes and the American people should raise holy hell!

    The impeachment trial sickens me but it is this playbook of corruption that sickens me even more if it all goes unscathed!

    AG Barr now owns all of this in providing the truth, evidence and justice for all to all Americans IMO.

        now to the point, I am NOT in favor of calling ANY witnesses..I am fully in support of the advise of “friends of the senate” letter produced by the 21 AG’s.

        what we are seeing is a type of fraud..It IS a fraud…make no mistake about it.

        a. there is no crime that has been committed….inspect all other impeachments in US history..there has ALWAYS been at LEAST one single crime, that was proven.

        b. the house argument about squaring a peg into a round hole by hammering away that obstruction of CONGRESS fits into high crimes and misdemeanors is fanciful at best..with no case law..and no precedence to support any of that stupid think.

        so it really doesn’t matter about facing the accuser…or calling witnesses.

        the point the 21 AG’s have demonstrated excellently is that there is nothing here in this impeachment that has a basis of support in the constitution….In FACT, it represents a violation of the constitution far more consequential than any imagined solution they have fabricated to achieve.

        I have sent the 21 AG letter to all my friends…and to every single elected official in my state and every other state..

        I have also sent this letter to every single newspaper in the US and many in europe, china, australia, europe and africa….and many others..It took me quite some time to get this done. This charade must be exposed. the only way to do that, is to publish the facts in the media…if they are not in agreement…fine…but at least make the effort to make them aware this letter exists and it has value in publishing to inform about this impeachment crisis they corrupt dems have manufactured…that is an existential threat to a free press.

    Senator Graham on a presser, similar to Senator Cruz yesterday, talking vigorously about biden …pointing out the fact that he was NEVER investigated.

    I do think there is value in making this statement. But I am not in agreement this impeachment saga should include any call to witness about that separate issue. All that will do is invite the deep end of the shite pool these corrupt DIMS have been angling for. There are not looking to win over a senate trial for conviction and removal from office. They know this will never happen. They desire to make this show go on for as long as possible. To create confusion in hopes that the voters will get their lines crossed and forget the serious flaws of the entire fraud that originated in the house..and the false predicates before that.

    The Senate must not allow to go down that road. This is not the correct vehicle …it will allow the corrupt dems and the media to conflate the issues as another narrative that supposes the senate is just another tool of the corrupt trump administration.

    we can’t allow them this opportunity.

    what senators graham and cruz need to consider carefully is that any investigation into biden needs to be held by referring it to the DOJ…win or lose, that’s where it needs to happen.

    the crime is alleged by a american citizen in a foreign government….and it has a political component….independence of the third branch of governments is required here..

    otherwise we are committing similar constitutional flaws and rendering a politically influenced tone that will backfire.

    biden is innocent until proven guilty.

    It is of the most appropriate and correct moment to embrace that imperative….that due process, which is what this matter is really about, but be preserved for anyone accused.

    send it to the DOJ for investigation…period.

    and stop using the senate as a political tool to remedy against allegations of a crime.

    full stop.

    graham and cruz are show boating..and need to shut their traps…it’s not the right time to invite more chaos into what is already a completely gassy experience for this president and this nation.

        a return to due process and the standards of the rule of law is what we are championing here.

        In his defense, Biden is well known for his braggadocio and his prevarication, often mixing the two. A prosecutor would have to prove the veracity of Joe’s confessional boasts.

        And if simple quid pro quo was a crime, then his public confession would be enough. But it is the hidden quid pro quo that is the crime. Providing protection for an oligarch’s business because it hired his son. And abusing his government office for his family’s enrichment. Otherwise, the act was just statecraft.

        I also think that the testifiers will be a good roadmap for research int developing the proof. Our government was aware of the conflict of interest inherent in Bisen’s son being on the board of that company. Then they participated in the official act protecting the company from investigation by the prosecutor who Biden had fired. Then they participated in the coverup impeachment charade.

        It is much more likely that those participants will tell the truth than it is that Hunter, Joe and the oligarch will admit that they benefited from Joe’s protection racket.

      Biden admitted to – actually, boasted about – what he had caused to be done in Ukraine. The firing (within six hours – SOOB!) of the prosecutor who was investigatng corruption at Burisma, where corruption was known to be endemic. It’s owner a bad guy. Biden used the power of the United States of America as vested in him as Vice President to do this. And when questioned about whether he had the authority as VP to do this, he cited Obama as being in agreement.

      He made a public confession. He bragged about the power he’d been able to wield. Usually that is not considered to be evidence of innocence.

      The notion that President Trump was asking Zelensky for an investigation is the centerpiece of the bogus “quid pro quo” charge that is part of the Abuse of Power article. It is impossible to leave the Bidens out as witnesses if the Democrats prevail and witnesses are permitted.

        okay a couple of comments.

        a. anyone can make a public statement…that alone does not form guilt of a crime. It can certainly be used as a predicate to commence an investigation to determine if there is sufficient additional evidence to support a charge. I am not trying to put on any kind of defense here for Biden..just be aware the current style of pre-convicting a person in the media is not useful ..and as we are all learning it has serious consequences. How do you think we got here in this impeachment..the left corrupt dems have taken a phone call and distorted it.

        b. a confession you say…not the correct legal definition…(not splicing hairs here)…more correctly, his recorded video can be used as evidence..

        c. the ties to barry satero …indeed and its worth pursuing in a court of law. did the VP act against the will of the president on foreign policy…yes or no..that would reveal much more than just an extortion gambit…I think the american people deserve to know all the dirty details about the former administration tampering with Ukraine…what happened and why…and who got very very rich from the experiment in mischief…getting the prosecutor in UKR is just the tip of the iceberg…So I would welcome a full investigation that would lead to putting Biden in a court room. the interesting this is the VP can’t use executive priv!!

        d. your last sentence only makes sense (imho) if the senate is willing to allow oxygen at all to this bonfire the corrupt dems can invented. This is not the correct venue. The priority should be to destroy this abomination and not try to deliver it. It’s a failure all the way down and deserves zero consideration…dismissal is the most rational and legal solution here. That being said, as I have stated before, this does not mean that Biden goes scott free..nope, if the senate has the balls to do it, they will take up the issue and refer to the DOJ to perform the investigation. There are many good reasons to do this:
        1) congress needs to get out of the business of holding criminal investigations and let the independence of the judicial branch accomplish what the constitution describes.
        2) senate needs to get back to business and fulfill its responsibilities to constituents and focus on the upcoming elections.
        3) biden can spent his political capitol in the press consumed by questions about his burisma connection and the ongoing lengthy DOJ investigation.

        there are just my opinions.

        I think giving this trial any witnesses is just exactly what the left corrupt dems have planned. we must not allow them any such opportunities. we can deal with biden over a much longer protracted period where he remains in “jail” in the press with a DOJ investigation…something that has never actually happened..and it also destroys the media that has claimed falsely that he has been “cleared of any wrongdoing”…there is that lie that needs to be destroyed also…a DOJ referral make that official and indisputable and throws all the crap the media has stated falsely in the crapper where it belongs.

      There are a lot of questions like this that no one ever asks. It certainly gives credence to Sundance’s view that:

      1. Fox (Hannity, Tucker, Ingram) is just a way to “control” the conservative audience and make sure they are “directed” in a safe direction away from what’s really important.

      Of course that doesn’t explain why none of Trump’s legal team seems aware of or willing to ask a question like this. For that I think you need a second factor:

      2. There is no Republican counterpart to the Democrat “Lawfare”. Why? Because there is aren’t actually 2 parties, there actually is only one party: the Uniparty, to which there are two wings with different roles to play in the media show to fleece the American taxpayer.

      The goal of the Republican wing of the Uniparty isn’t justice or to “stop the Democrats.” The goal is to work together with the Democrats to steel as much money from the American taxpayer as possible. Thus there isn’t a need for a “conservative” Lawfare.

      You would only need a conservative version of Lawfare if you were actually fighting *against* the Democrat. But that’s not the role of the Uniparty Republican wing, therefore there is no Republican version of Lawfare.

      And thus why there aren’t people willing to ask this, and many other of these type of important questions.

      Very hard lesson for him, but I’m hoping he will choose to learn from it and be a better representative. He has loads of potential.

      My complaint with Gaetz is not that I don’t, in theory, agree with his rationale for his vote….

      ….but jeez Louise…..sometimes you have to pick the right time to get all noble!

      And the middle of a no holds barred 3 year attack on the President was not the time!

      I like Matt Gaetz. I was disappointed with his vote, but willing to overlook it. None of us are perfect. I really thought he had better political instincts than this. First the back stab, then doubling down, now whining?

      First rule of holes Matt, stop digging. Put down your shovel and walk away Matt.

      Poor Matt…. He chose the WRONG issue to back in his attempt to stand out & get the spotlight. Being on the WINNING Defense team would have given him a badge of courage rather than a Scarlet Letter…..
      A line form one of the Indiana Jones films is most appropriate here for him …..”He chose poorly….”

      So many seem to give Gaetz the benefit of the doubt.

      His timing was intentional.
      His continued arrogance and smears, ie, digging holes deeper, was all part of his original effort.
      This new attack is a continuation of those efforts.

      There are lots of ways that Gaetz could have stood up for his so-called principles that did not involve joining in on a Democrat attack of the President nor smearing the President and all those who defend the President. And he is choosing to continue to attack and smear using the media.

      A friend of mine from the show-me-state had another saying that is applicable. ‘Hurt me once, your bad. Hurt me twice, my bad.’

      LOL – they can’t help it, even when they are trying to be “factual” they simply MUST lie! Perhaps it is done in order to keep up their “journalistic standards”? ;D

    Thoughts from that sock puppet Joe Scarborough. Just wow! What do they have on this guy?

    “I thought Schiff’s performance was a virtuoso performance yesterday,” Scarborough proclaimed. MSNBC’s Morning Joe. What the hell are these people smoking?

    This is what the enemy is reporting. They are completely vested in the coup and culpable.

    I’m hoping the President’s attorneys succinctly outline the different ways they have sought to remove this president which began before he even took office. Include the chatter about the 25th amendment. They said our VSGPDJT was unfit mentally, floated the idea he was unfit physically as well. Mention Crossfire Hurricane too.
    Follow it up with videos of the different Dems saying they can’t beat them and thus must remove him. Pelosi saying they’ve been working on impeachment for 2 1/2 years. Then outline some of his accomplishments. They can’t say them all or they’ll use all of their time!

    I still say it all goes back to Barry being peeved that Trump floated the birther issue. Barry unleashed the many hounds of hell on our dear president; CIA, FBI, DOJ, State Dept., etc.
    This farce must end.

      They also need to point out every lie and omission by these “house managers”. They have selectively played videos from bureaucrats, but failed to play the section in which GOP House dismantled each and every one of their “assumptions”. That is outright lying to the Senate and must be displayed for everyone to see!

        Schiff swore publicly on TV that he had seen absolute proof that President Trump colluded with the Russians to steal the election. That video should Exhibit 1 in the impeachment trial!

        It would be particularly fun for Trump’s lawyers to play video of the House Managers’ presentation to the Senate followed by “Here’s the testimony Me Schiff left out…”

        I wouldn’t come in with snippets of the House hearings. I’d overlay the “rest of the testimony” directly on top of a CSPAN recording of the House Managers presenting their case to the Senate.

        “Here’s a video of Schiff presenting you “evidence” of Somdland saying there was a quid pro quo. Now, here’s Sondland a few hours later admitting there wasn’t one, and then claiming he didn’t have time during his 2-hour opening statement to mention this…”

        The legal team’s multimedia people could gave a field day shoving Schiff’s testimony back down his throat.

          Yeah, that would be the way to do it. But make sure it’s super organized and easy to follow. Have some kind of (large, well-designed) board set up that shows the various categories of LIES told by the scumbags, with specific examples within each category. Then go point by point, but don’t spend a ton of time any single one. Do similar to what you suggested: Show a short clip of one of the Dems telling a specific lie. Then show a text of the exact quote. Then counter with our own short clip or quote that destroys the lie. Check off (literally put a big X over) that specific LIE. Then move on to the next. By the time they’re done, every single LIE will have been X’d out.

            Oh, forgot something: Point out that each of those many X’s are not just a vindication of Trump, but they’re a condemnation of the people who spewed those lies. Even hint that investigation/prosecutions may be on the way.

        Now ‘the woman in the red suit’ (no idea who she is) has said Shokin was fired for not aggressively investigating Burisma (and Hunter Biden). Lutsenko became the prosecutor who J Biden described as “someone who is solid”.

        Apparently, Schiff and Company are now relying on Lutsenko to bolster their corrupt allegations. That makes sense in a corrupt kind of way since he is the prosecutor who stopped the investigation into Burisma – and has now been fired and is under criminal investigation for corruption.

        The unconstitutional process is first and foremost.
        Then, every piece of “evidence” presented by The House must be refuted.
        Then they can possibly move on to Dem corruption and lies.
