definitely. the democrats who said "impeach him" literally the day he was elected and the manner in which some of the actions dems took during the impeachment process were questionable. i definitely think the democrats hate trump so much they are digging for anything to get him impeached. we know that pelosi was highly against impeachment until the ukraine memo came out. i watched the impeachment hearings and i thought both republicans and democrats made some valid points. I would like a fair and proper trial in the senate. with the proper testimony they're requesting, if it acquits trump, then the dems are done and it's going to make them look very bad in the 2020 election. if it implicates trump, then he should be charged for any potential crimes he committed. i think any time you go into a trial where the jury effectively made a predetermination is a gross injustice, and I really hope everyone else thinks the same thing as well.
This hat-trick can only be successful with people who are unaware (or willfully ignoring) how the Democrats pushed the issue in the first place. It requires one to give all the benefit of the doubt to the folks who stirred up the controversy while giving no benefit of the doubt to the people defending themselves against it. I guess I shouldn't expect much out of the ideology that preaches "accusations are evidence" and believes in the purity of mob rule. The plain facts of the situation make it obvious this is going on and I'm not going to waste any emotion or concern over Unfounded Democrat TDS Hysteria #3,975 unless there's a preponderance of evidence backing up their claims.
Democrats conducted the impeachment process behind closed doors with stacked rules and delayed bringing things to light. Doesn't this reflect badly on them for the same reasons stated? Democrats broke their own rules and denied the minority Republicans from fully participating in the impeachment process. Doesn't this reflect badly on them for the same reasons stated?
Benefit of the doubt is a limited resource and Democrats continue to fray theirs. McConnell could piss on the articles of impeachment and set them on fire on national TV and it wouldn't have any bearing on the validity of the House's impeachment, which is the foundation of my concern. Democrats will scream that it isn't a fair trial no matter what concessions are made.
