Needed ’more Senators with spines, not more witnesses,’ says Plaskett

Del. Stacey Plaskett, a Democrat from the Virgin Islands who was one of the House impeachment managers, has defended the agreement to not call witnesses at the trial. Plaskett said there was no need to call on witnesses as ’all Americans believed at that moment, the evidence was overwhelming.’ ’What we needed were senators, more senators with spines,’ she added.

Well i didn’t think I would ever agree with her on something but we definitely needed Senators with a spine since so many chose their party and hatred of trump over the constitution by voting guilty.

Lol, says the person that played the race and gender cards, as if that means she has a spine. Even funnier that someone strictly adhering to partisan lines is talking about having a spine.

The Democrats had emotion and that was it. They also showed how far they are willing to go in violation of the Constitution.

You needed evidence. You had nothing but second hand hearsay and now you look like incompetent morons. AGAIN! Some people never learn from their mistakes.

You have to admit the democrats have loads of spine. To pull off "the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics"...and then manufacture evidence against Trump with doctored videos and images. Takes spine to go to those extremes and not have fear of being caught... Oh and please don't say Biden misspoke cause that argument can then be used for the worst Trump has ever said.

If Demacrats had a spine, this impeachment trial would have not occurred. Their hatred and fear of Trump showed their true character.

No what we need is a real trial. Impeachment trials are a joke and always have been. Politicians being spineless is just part of the job, right? As a business owner myself I couldn't imagine running a business where leadership was installed and removed by the whim of the employees. At least not one that would be able to compete successfully.

I’m an American and I did not and do not believe in that moment nor now, that President Trump should have been impeached. So her statement is a lie.

Things liberals have ruined: They've ruined Youth Sports, the News Media, Football, our National Anthem, Universities, nearly all Holidays, the traditional family, California, elections in general, Scouting, and Controlled Immigration. They've ruined schools, social media, masculinity, and Hollywood. They've ruined 'winning', Judges and Courts, Christmas, big cities, and Police. Add to this list of things liberals have ruined: progress made in race relations, dining out in restaurants, women's soccer, health insurance, the Oscars, parades, and marriage. History, prayer, the concept of 'gender', Emergency Rooms flooded with no-pay illegals and hunting and trapping as well as Peaceful Protests, and Energy Independence. They have ruined the Constitutional process and meaning of Impeachment, pancake batter mix, and any chance for realistic measures to adjust to the Earth's natural climate fluxes. I could go on and on. But, let's let our liberal nutjob friends list all the things Republicans have ruined. I can't think of a single one to start with. Waiting... waiting...

You needed to impeach him on emoluments violations the moment you took the house. Work on your own spines before trying to fix the jelly remaining in the republican party. Stop reaching for bipartisanship, they didn't try when they had power, no reason to reach out your hand and betray your constituents in a fruitless attempt to make peace with anti-federalists.

The Democrats don’t believe we are all st00pid enough to buy the stuff they’re selling, but they do believe enough of us ARE st00pid. 0 for 2 on the impeachment so far, so on Monday will we be treated to “Impeachment III, the sequels sequel”.

New York Times quietly updates report on fire extinguisher striking Capitol Police officer New information has emerged regarding the death of the Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick that questions the initial cause of his death provided by officials close to the Capitol Police, In recent days, CNN reported that investigators have determined that initial reports about Sicknick being hit with a fire extinguisher are not true and that medical examiners "did not find signs that the officer sustained any blunt force trauma" as they "struggle to build a murder case" in the officer's death. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/new-york-times-capitol-police-officer-brian-sicknick-fire-extinguisher

It is scary how some people are ready to convict someone simply because they don't like him. That's not justice. That is tyranny. In the end, nobody in their right mind can say that Trump incited the riot. Does anyone know what "incitement" means in law? 1973 Hess vs Indiana: "The Court also said that “since there was no evidence, or rational inference from the import of the language, that [the speaker’s] words were intended to produce, and likely to produce, imminent disorder, those words could not be punished by the State on the ground that they had a ‘tendency to lead to violence.’” "The Supreme Court has said that for speech to lose First Amendment protection, it must be directed at a specific person or group and it must be a direct call to commit immediate lawless action. The time element is critical. The Court wrote that “advocacy of illegal action at some indefinite future time … is not sufficient to permit the State to punish Hess' speech.” In addition, there must be an expectation that the speech will in fact lead to lawless action." https://www.freedomforuminstitute.org/first-amendment-center/topics/freedom-of-speech-2/personal-public-expression-overview/incitement-to-imminent-lawless-action/

It’s that speaking in the absolute that helps to identify the extremists...to say “all” American people is impossible and factually incorrect. Also, saying “the evidence is overwhelming” is such a cop out like ok your honor lol clearly no real or valid arguments
