A red state Senator calls for censure of the president.

https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/481260-manchin-calls-for-bipartisan-censure-of-trump

Joe Manchin is on a precarious seat in West Virginia, yet he has the political courage to call for censure of Trump.

Removal from office ain’t gonna happen. Nor even a witness. The GOP is so afraid of angering Trump even slightly despite the agreements both public and private among the faithful that he acted “inappropriately” (a muy grande understatement, but still…).

Could there be at least 4 Republicans with some smidgen of integrity? Of course, the bill would have to pass the administration’s “Frank Nitti”, Moscow Mitch.

I wonder if Mitch is a double dipper? A paycheck for working in the Executive Branch as well as a Congressman. I digress.

  1. Ukraine is corrupt. That is the point of all of this and despite what Mr Manchin says, the American people expect the President as well as every other elected official to ensure that US aid is not squandered or stolen.

    To that point, we have the transcript of the call, which proves that Mr Trump was doing just that. ==> “There’s a lot talk about Biden’s son, that Eiden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great.”‘“

    By contrast, Quid Pro Joe’s focus was ensuring that Ukrainian corruption continued unabated. ==> I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion.’ I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,’”

    It doesn’t take much courage to perform a meaningless, symbolic act.

    1. It does if you’re a Democratic Senator in a Trump state.

      Meaningless? I suppose it could be cynically labeled that.

      But it would be a bi-partisan declaration that Trump was wrong.

        You mean meaningless doesn’t have a dictionary definition? The word means what you say it means, no more, no less?

  3. When will the crying stop? Everyone knew the endgame as soon as it started. Everyone knew what this was really all about, Democrats attempting to manipulate elections with impeachment since day one with partisan charades on no legal grounds. Now we have to hear, after a hyper partisan inquiry, that the Senate is not being fair? Really?? I assume Adam has no idea how stupid he and the entire left wing House looks like while trying to act like they give a rats ass about the constitution and the country. The only thing they care about is themselves and power. The worse part is having to hear this psycho babble until election day. Anyone for a really stiff drink?

    1. SO, Mr. Smith. Tell us how you really feel.

      Election manipulation is the new buzzword Trump and his supporters and defenders are throwing around because it IS what Trump did. He has projected his own crimes on his detractors and accusers from the beginning. If you paid attention, you might realize that. But your blind fealty to Trump is obvious and sad. IMHO.

      The modern GOP has forgotten what that means, so no wonder it is puzzled when seeing people who actually do care about the nation, its citizens and its Constitution.

      1. The two great deaths of the current GOP: Fiscal responsibility and the Rule of Law. Unless you’r a Democrat, then they will build the gallows even before the evidence is produced. And believe me, they will want and use ALL of the evidence. Especially the conspiracy based material. No matter how untrue it is.

      2. So you think Trumps needs to go because otherwise he will sell Alaska to the Russians? Or the survival of the nation is in dire jeopardy? That is the utter psycho babble “patriotic” bullshit coming from your “patriotic” weasels. Please do not tell me that you actually believe they really care.
