#1 Meanwhile someone will steer Xiden around via his ear mic.

#2 Pat "Leaky" Leahy, *Spit!*. Partisan hack who has been leaking confidential committee to the Press since the Reagan Presidency -- but only if an (R) is in the White House.

#3 If he was truly impartial this Senate trail would last less than 2 minutes with immediate dismissal.

#4 That's not what the Constitution says. It's dead Jim.

Soviet show trials are here.

#5 You can't impeach and convict a private citizen -- impeachment is solely about removal from office.

At this point, this is a bill of attainder. I'm honestly surprised they haven't tried to bad Trump's descendants from holding office -- they may as well clear the board on Constitutionally forbidden acts.

#6 Trump and the fight against him by the establishment was the Republic's death rattle. It is truly dead now and is up to the states that still want to keep it to leave.

#7 Howie Carr had someone on his show yesterday who pointed out the following about Leahy - he's 80 years old and in his most recent public hearings / pressers, he makes Biden sound like Churchill - slurring & mumbling like all get out.

Is this why the Dems are keeping otherwise retirement home bound pols around, just to rubber stamp everything?

#8 Raj, the Democrat party is half "Weekend at Bernie's", half "1984".

#9 You can't impeach and convict a private citizen -- impeachment is solely about removal from office.

This is an impeachment of the 1st Amendment right to protest and rally in D.C. and thus an impeachment of the People, whose rights are recognized by the Constitution.

They want to create a chilling effect precluding any form of post-Trump grassroots movement gaining political traction.

The People, not Trump have been impeached and will be tried because the People haven't left office on 20/1/21.

#10 Do the Democrats have standing?

#11 It doesn't dawn on these clowns, that if they show they're not bound by the Constitution, everyone else isn't either.

Your power then is not dependent upon the consent of the governed, but by those willing to give the last full measure of devotion.

#12 He needs a full court to weigh the legality of this.

#13 So another asterisk for the Bidet* era...

#14 When people elected Leahy, did they know who his secretary would be--the one who gives him his day's agenda?

#15 Word is that 80 year old Leahy has just been taken to the hospital.

#16 Karma for Leahy?

Any Dem senators from states with GOP govs? All it takes is one to drop dead, GOP Gov appoints a Republican for temporary replacement, and the Dems majority goes away.
