^^^ @7:14
They're waiting for your Deity Trump to completely implode and expose his mental aberrations to the entire Country!

Or, if you prefer, they're giving the President the courtesy of not having the Impeachment Trial detract from his already damaged image before he has a chance to present the mandatory State Of The Union Address to Congress.

Take your pick, meathead!

The Republican Senators have already gone on record admitting that they are not interested in a fair trial because they have already made up their minds, even though more information fleshing out the quid pro quo has come to light since the Articles of Impeachment were drawn up. The evidence of Abuse of Power is clear & overwhelming.

The Dems in the House sure showed how fair and honest they can be with their charade ... not at all. What a joke. This indy voter who voted for Obama is ready to vote for Trump in 2020. I've never seen so much dishonesty from a political party (unless it's the Nazi party) as I've seen with the modern Dem party.
