    Listening to Joe Manchin….
    (Undecided about his vote… but convinced Trump did WRONG and needs to be censured, even if not found guilty)

    He is just plain WRONG in what he states… STUPID in so far as he believes lies and misses facts.

    EG He parrots Schiff’s lies that Trump asked Ukraine to interfere in US 2020 election? That was never stated anywhere by anybody.. it is just Schiff Schitt!!
    Manchin described Ukraine as a “NATO ALLY”…. that is nonsense. Ukraine is NOT a NATO member, and is not even an “ally” It has been said to be a “strategic partner”… but not defined as an ally. I would expect a US Senator to at least be informed about basics?

      He’s trying to walk a tightrope politically. That’s why he’s in favor of a “censure”.

      Manchin is one of those go-along-to-get-along types. He should retire and enjoy his old age. He’s now 72 and has been compromising his principles since he was elected in 2010. He’ll likely be running again in 2022, though. Let’s hope he is defeated by someone honorable.

    The next daft Senate woman… repeating nonsense about Russia helping Trump and hurting Hillary in 2016? Repeating the LIE that Russia “hacked DNC’ and released emails to help Trump. The fact that the DNC emails were actually REAL EMAILS.. this was information about the DNC that voters needed to know BEFORE voting for a crooked outfit like the DNC. These people simply can NOT be “de-programed”

    The Senate Chamber looks mostly EMPTY!! This is a pointless farce.
    There are long pauses… I presume they are struggling to find people who want to pontificate.
    They could have done the closing Arguments on Saturday. (Preferably preventing Schiff and the gang from reciting stuff “not in evidence” (lies). But even if Schiff did his routine… they could have moved to final vote on Saturday… or at the very worse case… they could have voted TODAY!!

    In case you can’t watch the demented doing their thing, here’s a good excerpt from the non-demented side…

    I watched all the House crap and almost all the Senate crap with the exception of the House managers I couldn’t sit through their bs, the highlights along with the President’s side was enough to know the bs they spewed.
    I watched the closing arguments from the President’s attorneys today, again ignored the house managers, but I refuse to watch these Senators. They should have ended this already, nobody gives 2 cents as to their reasons, the only thing that should be said is, “not guilty and it was all bs.”

    I let all of them know what I thought about them dragging this out past SOTU and I could care less about what the Democrats wanted, at least they could have kept their butts sitting in a chair instead of allowing them to go to Iowa, bet they would want to negotiate then.

      I do not understand why McConnell (Republicans generally) keep letting the Dims play them. I understand that there are “deals” behind the scenes, but the Dims NEVER seem to give ground.

        Because as much as McConnell wants to now appear as if he’s a Trump man, he’s truly just an establishment old codger who doesn’t like that Americans rejected the elites.
