    It just keeps getting harder and harder to be impartial. Either they monologue about nonsense like Nunes or they yell like Jordan. Why can't they just ask their questions in a calm manner like Hurd?

    Because they know he is guilty and they are trying to stop the facts comong out. So they act like fools.

    Meanwhile, on fox news....


    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/ex-...ment-testimony

    "And, Ambassador Volker, I presume you got a readout of the call. ... Was there any reference to withholding aid? Any reference to bribery? Any reference to quid pro quo? Any reference to extortion?"
    "No, there was not," Volker replied, again and again.
    The answers underscored a problem facing House Democrats as their impeachment inquiry continued into its second week of public hearings: As more witnesses have testified, more soundbites have emerged that may help Republicans and the Trump campaign argue that the proceedings were politically motivated theater, long in the works and foreshadowed openly by Democrats for months, if not years.

    It's probably because at this point, Rep. Nunes is just going to use these proceedings to disdainfully gaslight the American people.

    Regrettably, our taxes are paying him to do it.

    On this date in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, as well as 2018, “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day posted profiles of the U.S. House Representative from North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District, Mark Meadows, the current U.S. House Representative for North Carolina's 11th District, who currently possesses the most right-leaning, gerrymandered seat in all of the Tar Heel State (and that's saying something). Prior to taking office in 2012, he pandered to Birthers by saying that President Obama should “go back to Kenya”. One of his first votes upon arriving in the capitol was to vote against disaster relief funding for Hurricane Sandy victims, an amazing precedent for a freshman Congressman whose own district is in a state notorious for being hit by hurricanes and wanting disaster relief of their own. Meadows is also a confirmed climate change denier, says that gay marriage will cause a Constitutional crisis, and voted against a new version of the Violence Against Women Act because it provided protections towards lesbians. He’s also prone to jumping on faux scandal bandwagons, as we evidenced by his comments about Hillary Clinton’s original Benghazi testimony, and calling for IRS Commissioner John Koskinen to be held in contempt in the middle of his testimony, getting rebuked by Koskinen for doing so. Perhaps his most infamous moment, though, came during Congressional testimony over healthcare plans for the Affordable Care Act, where he raged against the idea that men should have to pay an equal amount for insurance plans as women, and they have the nerve to also ask that they get maternity coverage on their insurance, when he doesn’t need it… the physician testifying, and trying to explain this to him was a Dr. Mindy Cohen, who was… wait for it… 8 months pregnant at the time. If that isn’t “GOP’s War on Women” optics in a nutshell, I don’t know what is. Oh, maybe the fact that Rep. Meadows still paid his chief of staff thousands of dollars months after he was fired for sexually harassing female staffers, because he really can't have any less respect for women. Meadows’ is so out of sync with American opinions and attitudes right now, where even after a White Nationalist like Steve Bannon was forced out of the White House, Meadows has continued working with Bannon, and he was one of the most vocal people who endorsed noted pedophile Roy Moore for Senate in Alabama, and after Moore’s history of diddling kids came to light, Meadows would only go as far as to say he should drop out of the race “if the allegations are true”, immediately putting on that caveat to cast some doubt on Moore’s accusers.

    Since being re-elected in his conservative district in 2018 (that could very well be ordered by the Supreme Court to be redrawn for 2020), he has returned to the House to continue to produce an unflinchingly partisan voting record:



    Mark Meadows is currently one of the most fever-pitch fanatics in defending Donald Trump during the Ukraine impeachment inquiry, where he’s so easy to set into a rage-fueled meltdown that he can simply overhear a report how Republicans are struggling to defend Trump and he’ll stupidly dive into a live television interview to embarrass himself further. (And he tried denying only one witness had said there was a quid pro quo, when now after Ambassador Sondland “amended” his testimony, and no one is saying that.)

    Between that moment and participating in Rep. Matt Gaetz’s “protest” of the closed-door hearings on impeachment… we’re expecting Mark Meadows to make a mockery of himself during the proceedings as public hearings continue. Considering just yesterday he asked to speak "off the record" while live C-SPAN cameras were rolling, we're pretty sure we're all going to be able to point and laugh.

    Funny thing, the woman they tried to use as a prop last week is actually the rep for where I used to live, although it was someone else when I left for Nevada.

    GOP-Requested Witness Rejects Trump ‘Conspiracy Theories’

    Kurt Volker said he has known former Vice President Joe Biden as an honorable man for decades while rebuffing debunked corruption allegations. This shit is ridiculous!

    The former secretary of state said “everyone understands” that using American aid as a bargaining chip isn’t right. Well, everyone except for THIS pathetic crew....

    Republicans Will Never Be Convinced Trump Did Something Wrong

    You’ve heard of “Never Trumpers.” Meet “Never Impeachers.” The See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil gang! Trump could gun down a troop of Girl Scouts in Times Square on live TV and these shitheads would say those kids had it coming for getting in the way of his bullets.

    The Day Impeachment Threatens McConnell’s Senate Job Is The Day Trump Is In Big Trouble

    The Senate majority leader is likely to abandon the president if it appears that keeping his role is more assured if Trump is gone. Honor among scumbags? Not even!

    One guy's take...

    The outcome isn't even the point(although I do worry that Democrats might not have a plan for what comes after). Seeing the process through when most Republicans have their clown shoes on during a perfectly valid attempt at a Congressional duty seems like it's the point.
