    ^Well, since McFaul is a Democrat and an academic, I’d guess that Dag would have no problem at all with that…fortunately, the Senate voted 98-0 against it.

    Given that Putin obviously has a hold over Trump and that the peepee tape is not a rational answer to that hold he has, I think it’s time to look at the other grounds for impeachment, which include bribery and payments from foreign governments to sway policy. And that charge doesn’t require two independent witnesses, which treason does. The financial records of Trump and his company might provide sufficient evidence that would even convince a Republican.

    You are neglecting to look at the changes in the Democratic party that seem to be in the direction of diversity of opinions and openness to alternative possibilities. Given that no single person (or single group for that matter) has the information and understanding to find the answers to all problems, this diversity looks more promising for progress than the rigidity of the Right as it is currently constructed. My major problem with your position is that when you say “We the people”, you seem not to recognize the diversity of these people. There aren’t a one-size-fits-all answers, there is only being open to compromise and fair dealing of the golden rule variety.

    Trump was briefed on the Russian interference with the 2016 campaign on Jan. 6, 2017, that is, two weeks before his inauguration. And here is a link to the report from a source trusted by the Right:

    I do enjoy the moral relativism of the Right…do ya think they recognize it in themselves?

    “restore religious freedom” IF one is an evangelical or fundamentalist Christian but not for anyone else. As for “fixing the economy”, he’s been coasting on the Obama economy. Let’s just see what happens with his destruction of the global trade agreements. The experts are expecting a burst bubble in the not-too-distant future

    Poor old jlocke thinks that ANY mention of race is, de facto, racist. He’s not all that precise in his definitions, ya know.
