U.S. Congress Judiciary committee investigating Donald Trump turned into a facts vs. filibuster, by Republicans who wanted to turn the hearing into a Trump shit-show and circus.
The most notable, if not repugant exhibition of non-decorum was by the Judiciary Committee minority leader Rep. Doug Collins who in cross examination with Democrat counsel David Goldman was the height of reprehensible if not altogether irresponsible behavior; asking one leading, red-herring of questions after another and without allowing Goldman to reply. As well as sinking to casting personal aspersions and insult at Goldman, with another, Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz interrupting and coming into the fray behaving like a batshit partisan zealot.

To this point it appears that the Democrats are prepared to put to a vote Articles of Impeachment against Trump in the morning and coupled with the release of the IG report yesterday stating that there was no wrongdoing by the FBI and intelligence in the investigation of Trump-Russia, the Republicans are now hard pressed to come up will additional conspiracies.
There is speculation that the Articles may include a portion(s) of the Mueller report, however it is not certain at this time if the Democrat caucus has agreed or come to consensus on this.
It is going to be a moment in history tomorrow when Donald J. Trump will be 4th sitting president in the history of the United States to be impeached ..

In a matter of hours the U.S. Congress Judiciary committee investigating Donald Trump in proceedings pursuant to his impeachment will commence. Much has been discussed, debated and argued over what the Articles of Impeachment will contain. Chairman Jerry Nadler declared over the weekend that “if” this were a civil criminal proceeding, outside of the Department of Justice rule that ‘no sitting president can be indicted,’ that the jury would come back in a matter of minutes with a guilty verdict.
While there is speculation of whether or not portions of the Mueller Report will be included the consensus among Democrats is that there is enough evidence to proceed with a majority vote to impeach Trump and to send to the Senate for a trial.
The hearing today will involve final closing arguments by the legislators and legal counsel on both sides of the aisle, now that it is clear that Trump has no intention of partcipating in the proceedings, and defying Congress with documents and key adminstration witnesses who have been “ordered” not to comply with the subpoenas issued.
This is to Trump’s peril .. and “par for the course” in his self-destruction ..

It’s now official; Donald J. Trump is beyond demurring over sending attorneys or even himself to the House Judiciary committee’s hearings and subsequent vote on his articles of impeachment.
It is this effort by Trump to avoid or even derail the investigation(s) into his “high crimes and misdemeanors” that is transparent to most if not all those who have been following these proceedings; it is obvious that Trump possesses a considerable amount of trepidation over his impeachment that he has gone tuck-tail and simply batshit crazy over it.
The committee hearing will proceed with, or without him and ultimately at his own peril.
On this the eve of thanks thoughts leap to mind of those ‘Thanksgiving’ of the past .. to now look to the present & how far and low some have become ..
Rudy Giuliani for all his alleged and on going investigated crimes is that which all real-Americans can be thankful for: as a crime fighter (once upon a time) .. turned criminal .. and where the test of America’s law and order, including the U.S. Constitution will now be tested for its veracity, in terms of democracy and freedom and integrity .. Now on to the House Judiciary Committee’s investigations and hearings ..

Why do they think Donald J. Trump is hell bent on getting re-elected, when the investigations and the past congressional impeachment hearings have brought forth evidence of crimes he has committed ..
Why do they think Trump cannot bring himself to admit when he is wrong, or incorrect and pathologically lies incessantly ..
Why in the whole grand scheme of things does it suggest he no longer wants to hold office ..
Why did he have to go the Walter Reed U.S. Army Medical Center without notice and instructions to the press not to report it ..
Why is it that more of those who have come into his circle of influence and control are now either in prison or being investigated for crimes?
There is no shame in un-supporting Trump .. just the stain, and SOMETIMES a scar, like the one from the conservative Tea Party Movement, of which was ushered into the Howling Political Wilderness™ after the election of former President Barack Hussein Obama, remains.
These questions are relatively easy to answer, however when delusion comes into play the answers can vary from crazy to batshit crazy ..
