Jeffrey Toobin on impeachment trial: Trump is winning here

January 25, in New York and we haven't seen a single ice cicle, it rained all through the winter.  We had one small coating of snow about half an inch and that melted out in less than a day.  But hey, no global warming, eh? 



Impeachment trial of President Trump | Jan. 25, 2020 (FULL LIVE STREAM)

No "fair trial?" brace yourself as your right to speak freely, your right to peacefully enjoy your pursuit of happiness, your freedom of religion and your right to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures, fade away.

Oh well, this won't be the first democracy to lose out to dictatorship.  Hope these Republicans enjoy the ride as dictatorships can be extremely mercurial, taciturn and otherwise unpredictable.  I, sincerely doubt, our economy will be as robust under such a form of government, for sure science and scholarship will suffer greatly.  I think Trump's first move would be to take direction from Putin, which means a rapidly shrinking economy as the Kleptocracy takes hold.  Many wealthy people will probably have their wealth taken away, not much they can do about that.  Nor would holding public office be any guard against attainder.  Public officials and Judges will become mere rubber stamps of the dictator and/or his appointee's.  I'd expect most of them to come from Russia as they would have Putin's blessing and Trump is expected to honor that.  GOP will have finished itself off, the Nazi's will feel Putin's hot breath and Evangelicals will regret losing their religious freedom as well as our freedom of speech and privacy.  Nice work Mitch!

Going to court is merely a delaying tactic because Congress has the right, the power and the duty under the Constitution to be a check and balance against the Executive.  Congress would not be an effective check or balance if they had to wait for court rulings while the President does not.  Because that would make it impossible for the Congress to act as an equal to the executive.  As we can see, court challenges are making it well neigh impossible for the Congress to obtain what it needs to oversee the executive.  If this is allowed we have a dictatorship right now.

Cuomo: Impeachment managers debunked Fox News' talking points

Trump hears how much money bank robbers get, he gets a brilliant idea: "Let's pass a law that requires police to rob banks so we can pass bigger tax cuts for the rich!"  He is, without a doubt the most pathetic excuse of a man we've ever seen, too bad he also holds the highest office of the land, that says a lot about what America has allowed itself to become.  The polls show that it can't be entirely blamed on Putin.  We've got a whole lot of people who simply do not know or care about what makes America work.

What Trump is accused of doing is undoing an American defensive action in the face of an active enemy action.  Congress had decided it best to send a strong message for our biggest adversary to back off the Ukraine, Trump in effect, decided to roll out a "welcome mat" instead by impounding our message allowing the adversary to think we were not very concerned at all about their designs to intrude on another sovereign free nation.

Trump snubs Davos 2020 vision in another America-first speech

This blundering obnoxious and ignorant fool under cut an American defensive action designed to answer and enemies active attempt advance it's interests at Americas expense.  In effect he might just as well have abandoned our troops stuck behind enemy lines.  The harm done would be the same.

This reflects badly on the entire Republican Party, why, after the taint of a connection between Nunes and the Ukrainian scandal, would they not move immediately to remove him?  Instead they're constantly leaving people, tainted by scandal, in place until they are taken down by explosive disclosures. Meanwhile such explosive disclosures of over-the-line involvements and ties continue to detonate with such astonishing regularity one has begun to wonder if the Party of Lincoln has itself become a criminal enterprise.  Well, regardless, this is harming the entire American effort to spread democracy anywhere in the world, we are ever less able to present as the beacon of freedom worldwide.  We are instead being made the laughingstock of the world and dictators around the globe are taking full advantage of it, to demoralize their opponents weaken the hopes of the "poor huddled masses" to get them to abandon all hope.  Putin is winning big time.
