When Adam Schiff said "Donald Trump chose Rudy Giuliani over his own Intel", my mouth opened. Can't get any simpler than that.

America look at your Senators that represents your state and say to them that they are not misrepresenting the country and do not vote for them next election.

Trump, "I like the uneducated." That quote explains trump's supporters to the tee. But in some or all cases concerning Trumpanzees is pure RACISM. You are who you stand with.

Ole Jay probably didn’t read the article of impeachment himself. Figured this would be a walk in the park seeing that be definitely will be acquitted. Republicans are a bunch of p***ies and they need to grow a pair.

My poor excuse for a Senator, John Thune, is one of the senators that is wearing an Apple Watch. Evidently, he is above the impeachment hearing rules.

Oh, it was totally clear. Each manager did an incredible job of linking the details to the timeline. I had some "ah ha!" moments when clarity happened. It was extremely helpful to see how everything lined up to show exactly how guilty the president is.
