One of the insufferable arguments by TrumpTeam is that impeaching him will divide the country. Really? For a guy who wields, worsens and profits from division, as his core political method, to now seek the cover of this argument is more than a little dishonest. — PolitiTweet.org

And why, when Mueller’s over, was he trying to put Biden investigation into Zelensky talking points? That doesn’t even relate to Mueller, over or not. You can call him a “shiny object,” but he was at the center of the House case. Pretending he’s a “distraction” isn’t accurate. — PolitiTweet.org

At last they address Giuliani, at the heart of this episode: “He’s only a shiny object designed to distract you” and “He was doing this as defense counsel re Mueller.” If he was doing Ukraine stuff as defense counsel for Mueller probe, why is he still there after it’s over? — PolitiTweet.org

And having to listen to him about fairness is like having to listen to Jesse James about bank safety. Low point: Starr talking about “due process rights” of a President, after his mad and bitter pursuit of President Clinton; the Javert of impeachment. — PolitiTweet.org

And by the way, while you’re hiding so much direct evidence, it’s a bit rich to be criticizing House testimony as indirect or based on conclusions. Must be quite a feeling to be “lawyering” in front of a completely rigged tribunal. — PolitiTweet.org

That’s a big omission, when you consider Woodrow Wilson considered that investigative power to be “preferred even to its legislative power.” Why can’t House subpoena under oversight/investigative power? No answer; they just ignored the existence of that power. — PolitiTweet.org
