      It is not the witness list that is important, it granting license to go fishing that McConnell cannot stop once it starts. Each of the democrat witnesses will create the need for another witness or another document to be considered, with Pierre DeLecto and Crew supporting the call for more every step of the way. As soon as the motion for witnesses and more documents is granted, Schumer is in charge.

      Pierre DeLecto wants to run and loose again, its the only reason he is in the Senate.

        Agreed, and the ORDER of witnesses would be important, too. The House would presumably go first, and when one witness opened up an issue, the House would ask for another witness for follow-up, etc.

        it would go on and on with only House witnesses, and we’d likely never get to any Trump witnesses, because the GOP would want to shut it down and vote before he got to call his first witness.

        So all the House witnesses would provide film clips for all election ads, fodder for new investigations, and Trump got nothing – well except for the acquittal, but expect more of Pelosi’s “impeached forever” meme, too.

        And Bernie, Warren and Klobuchar would be stuck in DC while, Slow Joe campaigned around the country.

      IMO, once you open it up to witnesses it will never end, and will last years like the mueller investigation. Each witness will bring up new things to explore that will require further witnesses, etc. etc. etc. That’s why Romney and the dems are pushing for it. They will make it sound like just a witness or two, but will immediately demand more once it gets going.

      I also found the Team to be a little restrained. I accept that the proceedings are in the Senate but rather than saying that something is not true, call it out for what it is. Schiff is a serial liar. There are plenty of Hannity type clips which show lie after lie upon lie. They should play these. The audience is the American public, not the Senate, so get it across to the American public, who mainly watch the legacy media/the DNC propoganda arm, that Schiff is a serial liar and that you cannot trust a word that he says, and that he is biased etc.

        I think the Trump team is trying to keep the focus on the impeachment hearings below and how Schiff ran them. His opening “parody” was a great example of what a farce the hearings were. He was goofing off in the official hearings on the impeachment of a president.

        Anything outside the impeachment hearings really isn’t relevant and might look like a personal attack on Schiff. The Trump team are keeping focused on the evidence from the hearing below and the applicable law. A clear, focused presentation will be more effective. in the end.

I don’t think his legal team understands this. And for whatever reason Trump has yet to deliver them the message.”

      The true-blue committed Democratic Party faithful can never be convinced of the president’s innocence. It makes no sense whatsoever to attempt it.

      Repeating a comment I made in an earlier thread, Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams makes the point that a majority of voters already understand that the Democrats are perpetrating a sham impeachment strictly for partisan political purposes.

      From this perspective, the president has already won the argument as it might apply to the public’s perception of his innocence or guilt.

      According to Adams, to hold a lengthy Senate trial knowing that a majority of the voting public already understands there is no basis for impeachment is selling after the sale — something that highly effective salesmen never do because it opens up the transaction to more questions that might cause the sale to fall through.

      The best course of action right now is for Senate Republicans to wrap up the trial by the end of this week, capping it with a quick vote for acquittal.

      And if the House decides to pass more articles of impeachment after a Senate vote for acquittal, let them play that game and then let them suffer the consequences in November, 2020.

McConnell should say that he agrees that witnesses are important, and return the articles back to the House to finish their shoddy and incomplete “investigation”. It would be more difficult for Schiff to hide exculpatory evidence after a spotlight has been shined on “transparency”.

          No. The order and grouping (or absence of grouping) is entirely up to the Senate.
          From a procedural standpoint, after the 16 hour Q&A and 4 hour closing argument, it will be in oder to debate whether the Senate impeachment rules even allow for calling of witnesses,

          Upon the conclusion of questioning by the Senate, there shall be 4 hours of argument by the parties, equally divided, followed by deliberation by the Senate, if so ordered under the impeachment rules, on the question of whether it shall be in order to consider and debate under the impeachment rules any motion to subpoena witnesses or documents.

          That has to pass first, before a motion to subpoena is even in order.
          Senate calling new witnesses will get shot down on procedural grounds.
          I also think the Senate will exlcude much of what the House brought.
          The point of this is to teach the House a lesson.

    “But like Stalin’s thug Beria, the House of Representatives already had their man on Inauguration Day, and has needed only to find the crime once the “Russian collusion” myth imploded. After trying out “quid pro quo,” the House settled on “corruption,” because Trump allegedly withheld aid from Ukraine to leverage Zelensky into “digging up dirt” on Joe Biden, his likely foe in November’s presidential elections. But this charge deflated after Trump made public an exculpatory transcript of his conversation with the Ukrainian president, who said he didn’t feel pressured, and didn’t even know the aid had been withheld. Aid, by the way, that was delivered within the statutory time limit. All the House “investigators” could do, then, was repackage the “quid pro quo” allegation into “corruption” for personal political gain.
    But of course, all foreign policy involves a “quid pro quo,” whatever new name the House calls it, and seeks “political gain.” NATO is a quid pro quo, and so was the Marshall Plan. The U.S. government, after all, is not a charity. And the accusation of “personal political gain” is laughable. Everything a politician does serves his personal and partisan political gain. The House impeachment is all about political gain: Tarnishing the Dems’ foe Trump, keeping their party in control of the House, and the House Speaker and Committee heads holding on to their positions of power and influence. These are not political “high crimes and misdemeanors,” they are electoral —>politics as usual.each branch “obstructing” the other<— each branch checking and balancing the other in order to prevent any branch from usurping more power from the others. You might as well call impeachment “obstruction of the Executive.” The House’s demand, per its oversight powers, for witnesses and documents from the Executive collided with the doctrine of Executive Privilege. So each branch was availing itself of its Constitutional resource for defending its prerogatives. The stand-off could have been ended by the House issuing subpoenas, then asking a court to adjudicate the conflicting claims. The House chose not to do that, because it wanted to ram through the impeachment and milk it for every drop of “personal political gain” that it could. Just calculate the value of free television time for a glorified political ad that the House Dems have enjoyed at the taxpayers’ expense.
    Now that the House has made its case, such as it is, it is time for the Senate to exert its Constitutional powers and end this charade. Prolonging it only serves the Democrats’ political interests by putting more seconds on the clock so they can keep trying more evidentiary Hail Marys, and keep enjoying free television time for preening and blustering and advertising themselves. We know that this impeachment has nothing to do with “high crimes and misdemeanors.” ~ Bruce Thornton over at FrontPageMag today

    Maybe if the President starts a full-blown war with Iran it will make Bolton happy and he’ll shut up. Why the President ever brought this WARMONGERING POS into his inner-circle is very puzzling.

    Western Journalism: As the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump moves forward toward its next major vote, one Republican senator said Democrats who want witnesses added to the trial may get more than they bargained for.

    In a Twitter post Saturday, Sen. John Hawley of Missouri wrote that if the Senate votes to hear witnesses in the case, which Democrats want, he will insist that key players in the House impeachment process as well as the Bidens also testify.

    “I have drafted motions to subpoena Adam Schiff, the ‘whistleblower,’ Hunter Biden, and Joe Biden to testify. If the Senate calls witnesses, I will ask for votes on all these next week,” Hawley wrote.

    In addition to Schiff, the House Intelligence Committee chairman and lead impeachment manager, and the Bidens, Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson is among the potential GOP witnesses, according to Politico.

    Schiff was front and center in a pair of Trump tweets Sunday as the president vented his anger over the impeachment process.

      They are already up 18 on us, so the President gets 18 witnesses just to make it fair so far.

      If they want more witnesses, we ALSO get 1 for every new witness they ask for.

      And they get NO SAY in ANY witness we want called. This is the defense of the President. He gets to choose his witnesses and his defense. Even Chuck-U said so.

      This is NOT a negotiation.

      And Bolton.

      He can make a statement at any time about what he said or not in his effing book.

      Why wouldn’t he want to clarify ASAP? Why would he want everyone speculating about what he said or not? What he meant or not?

      Think about it 🙂

        Why wouldn’t he (Bolton) want to clarify ASAP? Because Bolton hates the President’s America first foreign policy, and was most likely a Never-Trump plant by the deep state. Why any Trump supporters thought bringing warmonger Bolton on as NSA was a good ideal I’ll never understand.

    Oh well, at least he can have coffee with Obama, Boehner, Ryan, Rice, Hillary and Bill, Mueller, Comey, Clapper, and of course Stormy…she really enjoys guys with mustaches!

    Possible that Boltongate is another dem, MIC, UniParty, Globalist conspiracy. After the last 3 years my tinfoil hat is on 24/7. If there is a conspiracy it will include enough votes for dem witnesses and not enough for key Trump witnesses.

    Trumps tweeted he did not have the conversation with Bolton. I trust a Trump. His legal team will prevail.

    Those who vote in favor of witnesses are voting against the Constitution.

    The presser by Ratcliffe, Jordan, Stefanik and others just now was epic.

    They literally called out the Dims playbook of selective heresay leaks timed for testimony. Jordan was brilliant. Comparing the Kavanaugh ‘heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend’ to the NYT hearing a leak, coming from a draft of a manuscript from the NSC…’ HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    Take THAT, Collins and Mittins.

    I hope I’m not kidding myself here, but the fact that Bolton hasn’t said anything yet, Maggie Haberman having a copy of a letter from Bolton’s attorney’s that went straight to the President, just leads me to believe this was/is a LEAK sting. The fact that Vindman’s twin brother was involved in the process of reviewing the transcript…just is too coincidential!!!

    It still takes 4 R’s to defect while holding all the Dems. Collins and Romney are weak and stupid.

    But Murkowski, and Lamar may still hold the line.

    The problem there that Romney and Collins are too stupid to see is that Trump may win the no witness battle but if 2 or 3 R’s break ranks, the left will use that as “proof” that Trump is guilty.

    Obviously, they are going to do that anyway but it gives more credence to their claims which is totally unnecessary. They don’t understand this is a political game. Remember which team you play for. Everyone else does. You think the other 98 Senators are just determining their side based on evidence and fair play? You think out of 47 Dems, not a one would think there is no impeachable offense and it’s only Republicans that are playing a political game?

    A couple of real idiots there. Romney and Collins.

        Romney never was on our side. That was the whole reason he was floated for Secretary. I said back then that he was a deep state plant. And when Romeny didn’t get that appointment, I said he would run for Senate just so he could damage POTUS. Think back to Romney’s rant when he said some of the most despicable things about POTUS. You don’t say crap like that and then reconcile it to work for someone like that. Romney has always and will always be a little loser bitch.

      Collins is running for re-election in a purple state. She knows she can’t tick off the conservative base, but she may need independent votes to get re-elected. These statements are aimed at the swing voters, and could just be kabuki to make it look how thorough she is.

      The Dems and Planned Parenthood are going all out to defeat her after her Kavanaugh vote. She’s already publicly said she know Schumer is working to defeat her. She’ll do what get her re-elected.

    So we are supposed to hear from Romney’s 2012 campaign advisor/energetic campaigner ~ John Bolton. Mitt’s going to end up being conflicted when the Biden’s get called, especially given his 2012 campaign advisor Cofer-Black has served on Burisma’s board. It’s so transparent what Romney is doing. Trying to damage POTUS. He doesn’t want Trump reelected.
