"We are a nation that fights back," Warren said. "Fighting back is an act of patriotism. Meanwhile, the Republicans in Congress have turned into fawning, spineless defenders of his crimes." 

 

"...spineless defenders of Trump's crimes."  I don't have anything to add to that. Pretty much sums it up.

BOSTON - Democratic presidential contender Elizabeth Warren sought to re-energize her White House campaign in a New Year's Eve speech on Tuesday, warning that "democracy hangs in the balance" five weeks before nominating contests begin in early February.

In her home state of Massachusetts on the first anniversary of her campaign launch, Warren said President Donald Trump would "try to cheat his way through yet another election" if he is not removed from office after his impeachment by the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives.

"In the past 12 months, the president has become bolder with his lies and more brazen in his law-breaking," said Warren, who as a U.S. senator will vote on whether to convict Trump of improperly pressuring Ukraine for political favors. "Meanwhile, the Republicans in Congress have turned into fawning, spineless defenders of his crimes."

"We are a nation that fights back," she said. "Fighting back is an act of patriotism."

Warren, who has sworn off high-dollar fundraisers, argued on Tuesday that other candidates who "kiss the rings" of the wealthy are beholden to rich donors and corporate interests.

"The billionaires, the corporate executives and their favorite presidential candidates have one clear goal: to convince you that everything you imagine is impossible," Warren said.

While she did not name any rivals, her remarks were likely aimed at Biden and Buttigieg, whom she has previously criticized for holding high-priced fundraisers.

Yes. We need to hold democrats accountable for abusing their power and using the intelligence community not once but twice, to try and overturn the 2016 election results. 
 

It’s clear, democrats are a threat to our democracy. 
 

If Durham and Barr don’t right this wrong, it may be time for the American people to take matters into their own hands.

Not the only thing that bothers me about him. It is what it is

Senators seeking the presidency should recuse themselves. So should any Republican that made statements like Mitch and Linsey. We must demand the highest standards of ethics to heal the country

A president of the USA practicing Extortion which is a criminal offense should be prosecuted accordingly.

 

A president of the USA requesting assistance from a foreign government that could impact an election is against the law.

 

Threatening to withhold tax dollar subsidies if the foreign government refused is extortion which is a criminal offense which should be prosecuted accordingly. Impeachment is the easy way out for Rump.

 

Could be some conspiracy charges coming out of this as well and of course a certain amount of perjury.

 

INVESTIGATE PERRY,  Rudolph W. Giuliani, BOLTON, MULVANEY, BARR/POMPEO/ TRUMP/KAVANAUGH/McConnell! NOW!

Ironically...in principle...I agree with that sentiment.

 

Unfortunately - things are waaaaaay past that point.

 

I fully expect the Senate to do exactly what the House did - a complete one-sided politically driven approach.

List Trumps Crimes again? please post the crime and penal code.

 

Well for starters, he was just forced to pay a 2 million dollar fine in NY, after being found guilty of running a charity for his own benefit.  The fine went to actual charities.

In an investigative process there are not necessarily two sides. Once charges are pressed and the decision goes to court is when "two sides" take place.

According to the news Trump was committing impeachable offenses during the hearing ........ he keeps adding to his own demise.
