    Option 1: Vote for witnesses and documents, then vote him out and get anyone else to run the country.
    Option 2: Vote to keep him because you love him and how he operates and you don’t care about corruption and destroying democracy.
    It’s really as simple as that. If Republicans truly believe he’s the best and brightest guy to lead the country, we will be living in a country where anything goes. And that my friends is the start of the end.

    The toxic atmosphere of our current government’s hyper-partisan politics would be replaced by hopeful optimism and positive collaboration once the earth-shattering legislation of Andrew Yang’s “Freedom Dividend” and “Democracy Dollars” are passed. Both of these groundbreaking policies have broad appeal across party lines, and that’s why the Yang Gang is made up of a broad and diverse coalition.
    Beware of divisive and inflexible political ideologues. Don’t you dread the thought of a demoralizing partisan stalemate that impedes our country from soaring as a united leader that conquers the huge challenges of the modern world? In times of deep dysfunctional division, finding common ground is hallowed ground. The Yang Gang is ecstatic because we believe that we have found that elusive common ground. We are not Democrats first. And we are not Republicans first. We are fellow Americans first.

    Its senators like republican Lindsey Graham and the other 52 republican senators who open a LARGE can of worms for the next presidency , that the sitting Potus can investigate any rival or party , will also allow the next Potus to investigate the senators who violate the Constitution as to why , that they and the sitting Potus are above the Law . Is it racially motivated because the sitting Potus Always brings up Obama's name or is that the sitting Potus wants to change the Constitution ,( that all men are Not created equal )

      Biden is not who is impeached and anything Biden may or may not have done is another matter entirely that HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TRUMPS CRIMES . NOTHING . So do us and yourself a favor please STICK TO THE ISSUE AND STOP DIVERTING ATTENTION AWAY FROM THE POINT BEHIND THIS TRIAL. you are only helping prove how unwilling trump cult members are to face REALITY .TRUMP IS THE DEFENDANT HERE NOT BIDEN. .. unless of course you dont have the CAPACITY TO PAY ATTENTION AND COMPREHEND WHAT YOU ARE WITNESSING so in that case go watch fox news or RUPAUL and let the ADULTS handle this

      TRE45ON yes the president was indicted “impeached” but that could change if the senate finds him innocent. The house forms the articles of Inditement, the senate is the trial. The remarks that the president will be indicted for life is truly misleading, it only is enforceable if he is found guilty of the charges, well until they pull another one out of their hat.

    Homeless man was found dead on a subway car, he was covered with bedbugs. This caused the authorities to fumigate. Homeless deaths have risen in New York by 39% within the last 2 years with 402 dead. New York has become California 2.0 with homeless becoming higher than those times of the Great Depression. You can see the importance and priorities of the demagogs

      Paws For Mercy if they would spend this much energy on fixing the homeless problem or even the drug issues in their communities rather than attacking a president who puts us citizens first. The US would be a much better place. Hopefully these congressional seats will be replaced with those that see true issues and those who want to fix the districts they were elected to serve.

    Democrats - "They don't want to abandon the American democratic idea" except when it suits them. They have trashed it shamelessly several times and we are no longer prepared to pretend it exists especially when prosecuting such a flimsy wrong. Impeachment is only for High Crimes not for behaviours practiced by all previous presidents and esp the past vice president who did exactly what Trump did. While BIDEN did it to COVER the TRUTH, TRUMP did it to EXPOSE the TRUTH. Such a sick irony - we shall not allow this SHAM. Yes, our EARS are closed to their false cries of High Crime. No high crime here and we will not dance to their tune no matter how long they play the sweet music. We shall not OBEY any law as they have broken the law with impunity several times. Until they admit that what Biden and his son did needs investigation, we SHALL NOT INVESTIGATE TRUMP or call him to account. This should teach the DEMOCRATS a LESSON. If they ignore the law, we too will IGNORE the law. The people have spoken and will speak again in November this year by voting Trump in again Q.E.D.

      I think it's the price for them to stay out of jail. I'm thinking that that Russian money that was being funneled through the NRA and into trump's and other's campaign chests that the FBI had uncovered and was investigating gave tRump some excellent blackmail material to keep the Mitches and Ms. Lindseys in line. "I go down, then you go down with me!" Can't you hear him telling them that? Can anyone explain what else would have made them flip so quickly for him when he got elected when they had all come out condemning him with such passion? Of course, it's pretty telling that the Republican members of the governmental agency charged with investigating voting fraud and protecting the sanctity of our vote shut down the FBI investigation into those illegal funds. Now, why ever would they do that, I wonder. Yeah, I wonder real hard.
