    A boy can lie to a girl when he says "I love you" and then blame the girl for being stupid enough to believe it and that all he wanted was prestige.

    Do Republicans actually love America, or just want to fuck it?

    Sex and Love are to different things.
    Some people would obscure the difference for their personal reasons.
    Some people would have others obscure the difference for their personal reasons.

    Would you demand that your potential sexual partner declare "I love you" as a prerequisite for coitus?

    and (long ago) I once said
    "Hell babe, all I ever wanted was to get laid."

    Maybe my post was a little dramatic, in my rhetorical two sentences, and maybe I walk into this stuff, but I don't really know how to respond.

    It seems kinda' off topic.

    :EDIT:

    Plus you said this in an earlier post:

    Republicans love Republicans, their party and their President, they don't give a flying fuck about America or the people. They made that sparkling crystal clear.

    Fact.

    All senators are required to swear an oath to "do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws" before an impeachment trial. Given that McConnell is on record clearly stating he would not be impartial, he violated that oath.

    Didn't you know that? Looks like the ignorance is on your end.

    What kind of fair trial doesn't allow for the calling of pertinent witnesses?

    The kind where the investigators (House Democrat inquiry) completely shirked their responsibility, providing no documents or first-hand witness statements to the prosecution. The prosecutors then show up begging to be allowed to conduct their initial investigation in court. Aside from no judge allowing that in a court of law, it was the first impeachment in US history to include zero statutory crimes and have zero bipartisan support. And the second article of impeachment, obstruction of Congress, only existed because House Democrats shirked their responsibility to seek judicial enforcement of subpoenas, many of which they literally withdrew entirely.

    ^^ Well Trump did say he could walk down a busy New York street, shoot someone dead and get away with it no problem, so here's the proof if anyone wasn't taking him seriously.

    So how does that answer the question asked?

    So no Republican senators voted to impeach?

    Wow, you are a perfect Trump supporter - completely divorced from reality. What else did FOX News tell you about the impeachment?

    Mitt Romney's clearly a communist spy who's upset that the Republican party never took him seriously, so he doesn't count.

    Four sentences, and not a single one is accurate.

    As with all sorts of stuff, like history, laws and law enforcement, the difference between reportage and comentary, and even the names of fallacies, the biggest part of your problem, here, seems to be that you just don't know what you're on about.

    The trial was in the Senate, not the House. The House functions as a grand jury - the Senate conducts the trial, and normally witnesses and evidence are welcomed, not excluded, during a trial.
    The House was blocked from hearing more than a few first hand witnesses, by the President. The Senate was not.
    Documents were provided, except those denied them by the defendant.
    The President was of course the defendant - it's fairly unusual to allow a defendant to control the providing of witnesses and documents, in a trial.
    The Republicans in the Senate reneged on that part of their oath of office - trying the impeached is one of their explicitly assigned Constitutional duties. (Their oath of impartiality in the trial was forsworn as soon as sworn - several Senators had forsworn it before taking it)
    So no excuses.

    Laurie, there's actually very little dispute at the moment from any authorities that Donald Trump did what he's accused of doing. His own defense team maintains that the president of the US can do whatever the f--- he wants as long as he thinks it somehow benefits the country. I'm pretty sure if Obama had withheld aid to someone because they were too friendly with Republicans, you would have called for airstrikes on the White House.

    Wasn't their case that that applied so long as he thought his own reelection benefited the country (and his particular actions advanced that cause)?

    Or were they saying he had the right to break any law so long as the balance of benefit ,to the country and in his head was "positive"?
