Republicans are just making things up entirely and too many people are humoring them. Impeachment isnt for airing grievances against job performance, its for crimes. This was never legitimate.

Don’t tell that to Cleatus. The inbred GQP target for all this garbage. He won’t understand.

How can you have a Trial when there are no charges? Submitting impeachment documents with the words "we don't like him" is at best a cry for help.

Republicans "vowed to retaliate by slowing business to a crawl on the floor."

If they slow any more their electrons will stop orbiting the nuclei of their atoms and they will dissipate into clouds of subatomic particles.

And everyone knew it.

Senate conservatives led by Lee, the chair of the Republican Steering Committee, accused Democrats of “nuking” more than 200 years of Senate precedent by declining to hold a trial and vowed to retaliate by slowing business to a crawl on the floor.

That's fucking rich. Complaining about dismissing tradition and precedent from the party that routinely shows that they don't care about anything.

It was rich listening to Mitch McConnell speak about precedent after he helped pack the court.

The fucking idiocy of it all. Republicans are fucking swine.

Cruz tried to block Schumer’s move to dismiss the charges by offering a motion to send the Senate into a private session to debate the constitutionality of the impeachment.

Pfft, nice try Cruz. We all know who has their finger on the pulse when it comes to the Supreme court.

No evidence? Get the Fuck out and don't collect $200 for passing go.
