Donald J. Trump - the J is for genius.

Schiff is still claiming he doesn't know who the whistle blower is.

I don't get what Rand is trying to do here - is he just being cheeky?
I don’t know who the whistleblower is. Adam Schiff doesn’t know who the whistleblower is. My question is not about the whistleblower. My question is about two people who are friends who worked together … who have been overheard talking about impeaching the president years in advance of a process that then was created to get the impeachment process going,” Paul told reporters.

Theoretically the whistle blowers identity is unknown.

There is no legitimate reason to censor the name of CIA agent Eric Ciaramella.

But how is he relevant in the impeachment trial without being the whistleblower?

It shows the State Dept was a department looking for an impeachable offense or pretense from the git go.

They are not patriots but partisans.

They are not trustworthy.

The dumbasses already testified that Trump was guilty because he tried to wrestle policy away from the "professionals".

The President sets policy.

The treasonous and traitorous behavior of the deep state functionaries almost makes me question my anti death penalty position.

Well, it appears fence-sitter Alexander (who is retiring) is saying he will not vote for witnesses. Barring a surprise traitor, that allows the other three to vote for witnesses and keep their constituents happy (I get Collins, but how do UT and AK have so many lefty republicans that they vote those senators in?).

Some say it will all be over today. Meanwhile:

Quote
However, overnight, multiple congressional sources told Fox News that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., could seek to have the trial spill over into next week -- past the State of the Union address and the Iowa caucuses --  by introducing a series of motions and calling for more debate.

“The Senate can only move as fast as its slowest member," one source said. Asked when the trial would end, another replied, “when everyone is exhausted.”

Also, sore loser again, with the same reasoning that caused this fiasco, where elections don't count if your candidate loses:

Quote
In scathing comments Thursday as her party appeared on the verge of defeat in the Senate impeachment trial, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi argued that President Trump "cannot be acquitted" if the trial lacks the witness testimony and documentation that Democrats have been seeking.

The San Francisco Democrat also fired on Trump's impeachment defense team, saying they've "disgraced themselves" during this week's trial and suggesting they deserve disbarment over their trial remarks.

I'm sure that's it, but because "Alaska" you think fiercely independent vs "my hand is out for free stuff", but there's no reason for Anchorage not to be like any other big city.

Same reason many card carrying republicans will never vote for a democrat.

It's Utah, do you think anyone in the LDS church would ever get behind a non LDS candidate? I imagine the LDS church is a huge voting block, but there might be enough moderate or libertarian leaning republicans to keep the theocratical (might be a new word) candidates out of the running.

Well Alaska came through. She apparently said that Warren's sham question to Roberts is part of what made her mind up regarding the whole impeachment being a politically motivated sham in which it would be impossible for Trump to get a fair hearing.

They are supposedly going to put the kibosh on the whole thing in a few hours. If anyone is running out of liberal tears, today is election day 2016 all over again - you can restock from a near unlimited supply.

I'm starting to wonder if the President is even impeached. If the House failed to charge the President with any crimes, can it truly be considered impeachment?

No, but you can call it childish vengeful harassment.

One down, one to go

   BREAKING: Enough senators have cast "not guilty" votes to acquit President Trump on the first of two impeachment charges, abuse of power. Voting continues. https://t.co/2oSARbLo8U

https://apnews.com/93c85dcfb0e6b2185391965e77ebea51

Quote from: Associated Press
But the final tallies — 52-48 favoring acquittal of abuse of power, 53-47 of obstruction of Congress’ investigation — fell far short. Two-thirds “guilty” votes would have been needed to reach the Constitution’s bar of high crimes and misdemeanors to convict and remove Trump from office.

...

Romney choked up as said drew on his faith and “oath before God” to announce he would vote guilty on the first charge, abuse of power. He would vote to acquit on the second.

So straight party-line vote except for Romney.  No surprise there.

Glad I was wrong about the NeverTrumper Republicans in the Senate.  I really expected to see some of them vote guilty.
