  • The transcripts of the testimonies by the recent folk have put a stake in the heart of Trump. The Constitution is strict in this regard, and the offense was so serious it was put directly into the Constitution. It was followed up with specific legislation. To ask, to solicit a favor is aqainst the law.


    Now, do Republicans follow the law or their cult leader? History is watching.

    • And what of Biden? What of the Democratic senators that explicitly threatened Ukraine unless they cooperated on investigating Trump? What of Obama treacherously conspiring with Russia on missile defense? What of Teddy Kennedy actively soliciting the help of the USSR? What of Hillary and the DNC conspiring with the former Ukrainian government to interfere in the 2016 election?

      History is indeed watching and has been, but Democrats have never actually cared about anything except power and the means necessary to get it.
