    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham said Sunday that if House Democrats refuse to bring in the “whistleblower” during their impeachment hearings, “this thing is dead on arrival in the Senate.”

    “It’s impossible to bring this case forward in my view fairly without us knowing who the whistleblower is and having a chance to cross-examine them,” said Mr. Graham on Fox’s “Sunday Morning Futures.” “If they don’t call the whistleblower in the House, this thing is dead on arrival in the Senate.”

    The Senate will not convict Trump. Period. In my opinion, there is no way there are enough GOP Senators who will place the country over Trump.

    Not to mention the fact that Trump is wildly popular and if the election were held today, he would win in a landslide. Who will the Libertarians nominate? If they are smart, they will nominate the Democrat candidate. So there are not enough GOP voters to side with the Dems and Libertarians, because about 87% of the GOP are pro-Trump. There were no laws broken in the Ukraine phone call because the President is required by law to determine if a foreign country is involved in a criminal action before foreign aid can be given. The lawbreaker was Biden who threatened the President of Ukraine according to what Biden said on television at the Council on Foreign Relations. But then Biden is a creep and someday he is going to grope the wrong little girl or wrong lady and he is going to be dumped by the Dems forever. Obama told Biden not to run.

    I don’t know. There are several people running. Might be Jacob Hornberger, who just entered the race for the nomination that will be decided in late May -

    Impeachment is a political process, not a criminal law process.

    “The subjects of its jurisdiction are those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated POLITICAL, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself.” - Alexander Hamilton, Federalist Paper No. 65

    No, Libertarians should nominate the Democrat for maximum effect. Don't you like Hillary?

    And that is what you are backing--a political charge by the left. See, you are a man of the left.

    He didn't like Huckabee, either.

    My main problem with Huckabee was that after he lost a bunch of weight he went on a crusade as governor about weight. It's none of the government's business how much I weigh...or how much sleep I get or how much exercise I get.

    "Our objective as Libertarians has never been to get more votes or to put people in public office. That's never been the aim of the Libertarian Party. The aim of the Libertarian Party has always been, from the very beginning, the achievement of a free society. Getting into public office is the means to do that, it is not the end." - Jacob Hornberger

    I hope you get over your KHDS(KenH Derangement Syndrome) some day. I never intended to live rent free inside your mind.

    I don't think the whistle-blower' s testimony is important, if the case against Trump is made without reference to the whistle-blower. That said, this is nothing but a coup attempt by the Democrats, to tilt the next election in favor of the Democrat candidate.

    That's Democratic candidate. Just like one says "Republican candidate", not "Republic candidate".

    Nah. I just stand out from the right-wing rants that predominate this section of the board.
