Debunked: Response to GOP Memo

Numerous witnesses told Congress that President Trump pressed Ukraine to intervene in the upcoming U.S. elections by initiating and public announcing investigations into (1) his political opponent (Biden); and (2) debunked conspiracy theories regarding foreign interference in the 2016 election.

The American people will hear first-hand from these witnesses beginning this week. In an internal memo released publicly today, the GOP makes four main arguments in support of the President. Below are facts that show their arguments are patently false.

This morning's testimony is damning. Democrats will have no choice but to hold the vote.

The dems will absolutely hold the vote. It will pass.

It will then die a miserable death in the senate.

You know how Trump has overtaken the whole GOP and they're all compelled by force to go along with his every whim? What if... they all got a chance to just get rid of him. I don't want to hold out hope that this will happen, but.

ain't never gonna reach the senate

As I say: I got a fiver sayin' there'll never be an impeachment vote, never be articles of impeachment entered into the record.

Private message me an address, Toad. I'll mail the cash to you to dispense with as you see fit, if I'm wrong.

Only now the house is using terms like "bribery" and "extortion" rather than "quid pro quo".

Which doesn't sound like backing off to me.

What it sounds like is 'desperately fishin'. When that doesn't pan out, Schiff and his band will move the goal post again and again and again. They'll keep it kickin' right up to November '20 if they can. But they'll never hold an impeachment vote, never foist up articles.

I ain't doin' five thousand. I'm certain impeachment won't happen, but -- if I'm wrong -- I can't afford to be out that much.

I'll do five bucks.

Can't be made to give a shit. One way, or the other.

It's fun to watch you guys sometimes, though...

I agree, but my point was that dems are not walking their actions back.
