Trump wants to call the Bidens, Adam Schiff, and the Whistleblower...

...to testify in front of the Senate trial.

No doubt, this will tempt the Democrats to ask for the testimony of Devin Nunes, Sen, Ron Johnson, Mitch McConnell, VP Pence, and Donald Trump.

Surely they will be able to negotiate some reasonable compromise?

Maybe they will decide to call only those witnesses that are relevant to the charges against Donald Trump?

McConnell will attempt to placate Donald Trump and Democrats should prepare themselves for some underhanded deal from McConnell.

2. What Trump wants is similar to a rapist demanding that every one of the boyfriends or men the victim

...knows from past should be required to testify....itís disgusting and insane that he is able to even ask for this...


Whereas Devin Nunes and Ron Johnson actually are involved....

6. That should be the first question they should negotiate with the Chief Justice.

Will he rule that no man is above the law or will he rule that Donald Trump is above the law in an impeachment trial?

5. Biden and Schiff are not to be trifled with

They both capable of telling the GOP to "fuck off" - in those very words.

7. Is that legal? They're not on trial. HE IS. Isn't this up to the managers?

It's like the plaintiff telling the lawyers how to do their job.

8. That seems so obvious.

That lies and fabrications can overwhelm the facts and the truth?

Put someone else on trial. Put Joe Biden on trial? Put the Whistleblower on trial? Put Adam Schiff, the manager of the impeachment from the House? Why not ask the Chief Justice to testify?

It is an obvious diversion and it's a shame so many Trump supporters are hoodwinked by it.

9. Well, we've done this so rarely, I thought they might somehow get away with it.

You're absolutely right, of course.

10. The only person on trial is Donald J Trump.

Unless he was coerced into it? And that could be a possibility.

He could argue that he was compromised and bribed by Vladimir Putin over previous debts owed.

Perhaps they can request Vladimir Putin to voluntarily testify, so that the US and the Russians could improve on their relationship?

How many bricks would Donald crap?

11. the notion is such an attack on the Separation of Powers -- can't be allowed!

The purpose of this and other shenanigans is to create chaos.

The very idea that the Chair of House Intelligence would be called is outrageous.

12. Yep! That's the plan!

Disruption and chaos and confusion.

They have no other defense.
