What crimes do you think President Trump is guilty of?Trump wants to write down his answers as his testimony to defend himself.
We know how that worked out in the Muller investigation. Now the Dems are reviewing his answers to see if he lied (under oath) in his written answers.
Wait! Did Trump lie? Does the Sun rise in the East?
So, according to Nancy Pelosi, President Trump is guilty until he proves he's innocent? ............
Isn’t that exactly what you are doing to Nancy Pelosi? Putting words in her mouth? If you could provide the quote where Nancy says Trump is guilty until proven innocent please?You are putting words in my mouth.
Not really. Well, only on paper.
No, but the chances of being treated unfairly increase quite a bit if you are not white and male. There are many studies that support this.So anyone who is not a white male will not be treated unfairly in a court of law? That's preposterous.
You've just insulted a wide spectrum of American citizens that are none of those things.The Trump worshipers have always been part of life in America. At their worst, they're KKK. At their best, they're Archie Bunker. At their most cynical, they're the powers that be of the Republican party.
Great post. Before Trump, there were people like George Wallace, Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms. Remember that only in 1967 was interracial marriage finally legal in the U.S.I don't think there's been a moment in American history where at least 30% of the population hasn't been just awful, and that percentage is on the kindly side. It's way higher than that when you include American history of racism.
You don't need Fox News or Rush Limbaugh. They weren't around during the anti-German American sentiment during World War One. Look at how popular Father Coughlin was. Think about how accepted by everyone, including Earl Warren, imprisoning Japanese Americans was during World War Two. Consider red baiting during the 1920s and McCarthyism in the 1940s and '50s, or the danger and illegality of being a homosexual.

I think anyone who votes Republican in 2020 is okay with supporting racism and racist policies, and is okay with not caring about people they don’t know. They are also okay with a President who lies regularly and employs some people who are willing to lie on his behalf and some people who are white nationalists.I don’t think all trump supporters are racists. Tribalists yes but I already said that I don’t think tribalism equals racism. For example, there have been several posts from people here noting their Hispanic or Vietnamese relatives vote for trump or vote for republicans because socialism.
This a political process, not a criminal one, so those standards really don't apply, but if we want to make a comparison to the criminal justice system than the hearings in the House are the Grand Jury stage where the rights of the accused are extremely limited.
I also think this is no longer a conservative/liberal issue. My mom is personally as conservative as one gets. She's scandalized by R-rated movies and tried to convince me that my string bikini was not appropriate and bought a non-string bikini for me to prove the point. But she believes in the rights of women to control their bodies, she thinks gay marriage is "fine, it's not like the world is going to end."I think anyone who votes Republican in 2020 is okay with supporting racism and racist policies, and is okay with not caring about people they don’t know.

If you are not okay with these things you should not be voting Republican. I know, “the economy!” Well if you look at history, you have a better chance of having a Democratic President build a stronger economy. Republicans generally inherit a strong economy, bring in sweeping tax cuts for the rich, and leave the economy in a worse state than they got it. Wash, rinse, repeat.
At the end of the day, if you truly believe that all people were created equal and that we should care for people, even those we don’t know know, the Republican Party is not your party. Vote Republican, and people are going to make assumptions based on that.
Big difference though! David Kendall, clintons lawyer ,was at the impeachment inquiry hearings! Asking starr questions. Trumps been banned from having his lawyer be in hearings. It’s not the same. This being so much more serious it should have been so much more fair! But then I guess Gingrich and Hyde used the Albert rodino model for Nixon because the charges were so flimsy! That they treated Clinton’s impeachment exactly like Nixon’s to make it more serious. But now with all trump lawyers being banned from asking any witnesses anything it’s so much worse a process.I love all these comments about how unfair the process is and how Trump hasn't done anything to warrant impeachment because I watched the Clinton impeachment trial and impeaching the President for lying about having an affair using basically the same process we're using now has to be the height of unfair, partisan politics. Yet the GOP was okay with it then but up-in-arms now when we're investigating possible bribery and other illegal actions which Trump has already admitted to. Yeah, you guys really care about fairness.
