Welp, here's one prediction I got absolutely RIGHT...
« on: November 09, 2019, 07:17:38 PM »
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff rejected the GOP’s request that the panel summon Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, to testify at public impeachment hearings next week.

Schiff, who will head public impeachment hearings beginning Wednesday, said in a Saturday statement that he will consider a list of witness requests provided by the GOP. 


“This inquiry is not, and will not serve, however, as a vehicle to undertake the same sham investigations into the Bidens or 2016 that the President pressed Ukraine to conduct for his personal political benefit, or to facilitate the President’s effort to threaten, intimidate, and retaliate against the whistleblower who courageously raised the initial alarm," he said.

That wasn't a difficult decision  for Schiff. Let's not do anything  to even give the appearance  of a fair hearing.
Great job Fuzz!!

Excuse me?  You think it's "fair" to try the Bidens at Trump's impeachment hearing?

“I told them they weren’t getting the $1 billion until they fired him and I was leaving in 6 hours. And I’ll be damned, they fired him. I’m sorry but I had to protect my son. The boy has no skills so I used my VP position so that he could make enough money to have a life once he couldn’t ride my coat tails any longer. A fathers got to do what he can even if it’s a quid pro quo. But I didn’t give a damn because I knew that I wouldn’t be held accountable”.

No Fuzz. We don’t ever expect ethics or morals from the party of no ethics, no morals, no values, and no due process.

See?  You've got to make things up to participate in the conversation.

Trump will get his due process.  His defense cannot include putting someone else on trial.  Hunter Biden is utterly irrelevant to this case - he has no pertinent knowledge of Trump's crime(s).  It's hilarious that you're so unreasonably partisan that you can't see the absurdity in that.

You don't think it was relevant that a POTUS was concerned with corruption in a country that we were about to give millions in aid? Surly you jest

No worries.
If Schiff sends it over to the Senate, the Bidens will be called to testify.....likely just before the Iowa Caucuses and New Hampshire Primary....

Have at it.

The Rebublicans gave Schiff a list of eight witnesses and he has reportedly rejected all of them... including the "whistleblower" that initiated the current impeachment effort.

I'm guessing you got this prediction wrong....
(and, surprising no one, the poll was deleted).

Honestly Trump's reaction to the whistleblower is probably itself, an impeachable offense:  

President Donald Trump said Thursday that whoever provided the whistleblower with information about his call with the Ukrainian President is "close to a spy," adding that in the old days spies were dealt with differently.

All the evidence, including witness testimony, will come under fair scrutiny as Trump receives his due process.  It should be obvious to anyone, although it's no surprise that it's not, that anonymous whistleblowing leading to investigations should be upheld and preserved for the sake of our democracy.  The possibility of having unfettered, inflammatory, egocentric idiots like Trump issuing public threats and lamenting the bygone days of executions for perceived disloyalty are exactly why this patriot deserves to be protected at all costs.  

The Republicans knew this guy would not be allowed as a witness, they understand the legal protections this guy is entitled to - they're not as stupid as their voters.  This is all for show so they can enflame their mind-numbed "useful idiots" to shout that the Democrats aren't being fair and that "Trump's being railroaded."  Wake up Volty, surely you're smarter than this.
