Since you keep saying you are not a criminal court of law. Then why are you trying to impeach our President? You are full of it. Shut up. This is riducous, and I think you should have to pay back the monies waisted. Which, oh by the way is frivolous lawsuits. Which is a crime itself.

lol All present day politicians should be charged for abuse of power, they all bend over for their own special interest & make laws that favor for themselves along with their rich friends… I did not vote for Trump but it makes me sick that there has been a witch hunt against him since he was elected. Democrats have become far worse than what Republicans were during the Bush 9/11 era & are the party of complete complete & total corruption… You Democrats are doing the bidding of globalists & should be hung for treason…

Raskin is overlooking what the Dems have been doing for the past three and more years..they are the ones abusing power. Pres. Trump is innocent…he is a great President..you lost in 2016..get over it and do your real job.

Who lies and cheats for the least fortunate of Americans? This is the reason why the least fortunate end up in prison. We don't have the money to pay a lawyer to lie and cheat for us.

Don't play the Idiot card Mr. Collins, you damn well know there is another transcript out there. It's in the classified server trump's people hid it. Along with other communication with hostile foreign leaders. Republicans could play three blind mice all they long but the American people have their eyes wide open with 20/20 vision. "You get it? 2020 vision" Do these Idiots think they could run a country with fools like these at the helm? They say we want to reverse the 2016 election. That we are angry we lost. But they are really angry that they lost the civil war and have been trying to reverse that for years.

YES, even you black guys' President too. OK. At this time, I will say that I have clearly "supported you" (been on your side), BUT, it now feels like the end. AND, if so, I'm sorry for you. Really sorry.

First time hearing the transcript of the phone "conversion in question" there appears to more here than the obvious.
Anyone with intelligence background would be able to realize there has been preceding conversions between both parties.
If not from that conversation, there is definitely enough reason for the CIF's further conversations to be under close monitoring from NSA, CIA and FBI.
There is nothing normal about that conversation at all, the party is setting itself up and it's only a matter of time.

It's all a 3D chess game where both sides play the odds to be re-elected while fighting for the sanctity of the Constitution. Trump has had disregard since before he announced his candidacy. He continues to break the law knowing that the Senate will not convict him and throw him out. The Republican senators are also to blame, especially McConnell and his team of obstructionist. Although they all took an oath to uphold the Constitution, they all act on what is best for them and their reelection with flagrant disregard for the betterment of the USA. If you are not a registered republican the best thing you can do is VOTE in 2020. The next best thing you can do is get involved and make sure your neighborhood democrats, independents and other registered non-republicans also vote.

Throughout the impeachment process, they've withheld and manipulated key documents, lied about witness statements, and relied on total hearsay to make their case against the president. They've even kept Republicans from calling their own witnesses and blocked them from asking hard questions of Democratic witnesses.
