Yea, because those right wingers want to give free healthcare to illegal aliens.

Why? He didn't do anything wrong, and he's well qualified as a judge.

Apparently Mitchell had some ties with Jeffery Epstein too.

It is remarkable. Trump's defense team is cutting the impeachment argument to shreds as we speak. Nothing Bolton can say would rehabilitate the case for impeachment.

That's democracy by design. It's appealing to the lowest common denominator to gain a majority. The alternative is to restrict the franchise.

I don't know. Maybe we should fight the Russians over there so we don't have to fight them over here... The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming.
Anyway, yeah the Bolton and Lev Parnas stuff is just hoping they can add some spice to the mix, but the problem is that there is no case for impeachment. Trump's defense team is completely destroying it. As I said, they would end up waging an affirmative defense and that would kill off any chance of a conviction. This leak to the press was just one more "bombshell" that means nothing. Tiresome.
