Democrats upset by docket rocket

They were looking for a railroad, not a rocket:
'This isn't a trial - it's a COVER-UP!' Chuck Schumer rages against Mitch McConnell's rules for Donald Trump's impeachment trial as a 'national disgrace'

Republicans' plan for Senate trial of Donald Trump are revealed hours before it begins at 1pm Tuesday. Mitch McConnell wants each side given 24 hours spread over two days to make their case - the Democrats for impeaching and removing, Trump for acquittal. If he gets his way, Democrats could start spelling out why they want Trump removed at 1pm on Wednesday. Planned schedule could put 'docket rocket' trial on track to end before Trump delivers the State of the Union address. Nobody will be allowed to subpoena witnesses or documents until after each side has made their case and 16 hours of questions have been asked.

Minority leader Chuck Schumer took aim at the moves calling it a national disgrace and said it was not following the precedent in Bill Clinton's trial. Plans offer apparent victory for Donald Trump - but will not explicitly allow him to demand instant dismissal of the two articles of impeachment.
Apparently they don't have enough on enough Republican senators to slow down the Storm. Looks like everything is still under Qontrol.

UPDATE: It's not going well for the Senate Democrats.
Democrats LOSE their first three battles of Donald Trump's impeachment trial as Republicans block subpoena after subpoena - but Chuck Schumer vows to keep demanding witnesses long into the night.

New Democrat talking point: "if we don't have a 20:1 time allocation compared to the Republicans, and a right to stop their testimony at any time, this will not be a fair process." If not, how will they not drag this circus on until 2022?

From the linked article:
"The 110-page filing from the White House shifted the tone toward a more legal response. It still hinged on Trump´s assertion he did nothing wrong and did not commit a crime - even though impeachment does not depend on a material violation of law but rather on the more vague definition of 'other high crimes and misdemeanors' as established in the Constitution."

Somehow "I did not commit a crime" means "Yeah but you could've committed an other, high crime!"

Crime somehow != crime. Ye cats.

Have they been running with this for a while or is this just a specific brand of stupid?

Blogger tublecane January 21, 2020 5:15 PM  

Ever notice Washington drama runs by a seasonal schedule, like reality t.v.? Do they think we don't notice?

Much was made about the Democrats declining to vote on impeachment and instead launching an investigation. Which finds nothing then expedites impeachment like they were always going to do anyway.

Then a big show is made of Nancy not handing papers over to the Senate. Suddenly we're slow-dancing, with "democracy" on the line! COINCIDENCE! This just-so happens to go down during the holidays season. And we all know it'll be at least until February that everyone digests their Christmas geese and sends out thank you correspondence.

Okay, this would all be natural if Congressmen had to take wagons back to their home district. But the news is running 24-7-365, and they keep saying stuff like it's real. It's not real.

This stuff ain't real neither. Who even talks and about an impeachment trial like it's a real trial? No one actually wants it to be a real trial.

I even heard someone call it a "political impeachment." (Political means bad, because no one trusts democracy.) Uh, duh. That's what all impeachment is.

Schumer, the poster boy for term limits! He never had a real job in his life. He has always been a 'public servant'/ Amazing how he became a millionaire on a government paycheck. He has never produced anything of value or note. Similar to all career politicians. Term Limits! Term Limits! Term Limits!

Blogger tublecane January 21, 2020 5:44 PM  

@11- They're talking out their backends, of course. The "material" part is inconsequential. The "vague" part is not all that vague, and definitely is not license to do as they please.

What they're actually saying is that they can throw Trump out of office without even pretending he committed a crime because:

"Uh, Constitution, ya know. Whatever. Look out behind you! [jumps out window while your back is turned.]"

Rep. Schiff & company are play acting: going through the motions, but don’t believe in what they are saying. This is the exact perception most people have of lawyers: say anything for a dollar.

This impeachment sets such bad precedent that only a fool and/or tyrant would consider it. And, attempting to thwart the Will of the People (because they can’t defeat Trump) is itself treasonous behavior. This is dangerous stuff—the kind of stuff that leads to civil war.

Even though Trump will be acquitted, it’s a sad day for our democracy that 40+ Senators would vote for the circus.

One of the differences between republicans (and right wingers) and democrat/lefties is:
W2's were delivered by most companies Last Friday. The Vast Majority of right/republicans have already submitted their taxes, and have even the most complicated w-4's and corporate taxes filed.

Most demcorats, commies, and liberal companies are going to barely make it by april 15th, and over 23% are going to wind up paying late fees or pleading for an extension. Of the 8% or so granted an extension, over half will not make their extensions.

@ Dire Badger - this has got to be the most unique "us vs them" aspersion I have yet seen. Most people attack their muscle mass, fighting/shooting abilites, mental health, sexual preference, or the fat-worn out-tatted up appearance of their women... but this works. Probably won't get a brick thrown at you in Portland, anyway.

Blogger John S January 22, 2020 1:40 AM  

@38 Someone like Sekulow is a real lawyer who has actually argued in front of the Supreme Court and is trained in making short, effective and bulletproof arguments. Schiff is a politician lawyer who clearly hasn't argued in court for a long time and is more skilled in making politician arguments that are rambles and full of holes. This is something that will become more and more apparent as the whole impeachment fiasco goes on.

That is one of the reasons for tax withholding. Imagine how bad, or good? if the Feds had to rely on people writing checks to the IRS.

President Trump doesn't get enough credit for the tax reform, many people now don't have to itemize because the standard deduction is high. A lot of deductions were eliminated for higher income earners, as a trade off for lower tax rates.

I just started a new job and had to fill out that form. It occurred to me that with so many companies now using direct deposit, many don't even have that moment of sticker-shock when we used to get our first paycheck and see all those withholding lines on the stub. I'm sure we can ask to see that information, but most people will only see the net amount that hits their bank account, and never see exactly what's being taken.

Security video, from DNC Headquarters:

Nov 12, 2016

Debbie Wasserman Schulz: Well, let's face it. Raising taxes, promising to go to war with Russia in Russia's back yard, telling people they're evil for using petroleum-powered vehicles and threatening to make electricity more expensive still aren't enough to get voters to elect us. Now the Republicans will control the House, the Senate, and the Whitehouse. We need to start with a strategy for 2020, starting today.

Pelosi: I know how to get the House back. The media came up with the idea 6 months ago, and Barbara Lee has already been on the news with it. We must convince our voters that we absolutely hate Trump. We can promise our voters, that if they vote for us, each of us who they elect will drill a hole in the side of our skull.

Schumer: Whoa, Nancy. I think you're on to something there. You think it will work?

Pelosi: Our voters are such morons, they'll vote for a dead squirrel, flattened in the road if we run ads and put a picture of it next to the letter D.

A week after inauguration day, 2019:

AOC: So, remember when you all promised that we would all drill a hole in the side of our head?

Pelosi: Oh, don't worry your little head about that. That was just to get all of our morons to come out to vote in an off year.

AOC: Orange man BAD!!! I'm in control. The voters DEMAND it.

Pelosi: Shut up and go away, you ignorant child whore.

AOC: I'm not shutting up until you make all of us drill holes in the side of our head! How will people know how bad the orange man is, and how much we hate him if we don't drill holes in our heads?

Schiff: Damn it Nancy, I've been waving a drill around, pointing it at my head for 2 years now. If we don't actually start using our drills, our voters will lose confidence in us.

Pelosi: You two are even dumber than the people who vote for us. That's not how it works. Look -- we lie to those idiots all the time! We tell them we're going to help them, and then we screw them. That's how this works!

June 2019.

AOC: The voters want to see blood! The squad and I all bought air-powered drills, like the mechanics use. They'll keep spinning even if you take your finger off the trigger! We even went out and bought an air compressor!

Maxine Waters: Damn it Nancy! I've been threatening to drill a hole in my head since the day after the election! Every time I speak, I threaten to drill a hole in my head! What do you mean we can't?!?!?!

Pelosi: I can't believe this.

Schiff: Look, I'll organize it. I got a nice battery powered drill, one of those new 48 volt ones, and a whole bunch of bits in different sizes. I even got some of those big paddle-shaped bits that carpenters use for drilling wood! [Puts drill with wood bit on desk] Watch this! [After a few seconds, small pieces of wood are flying in all directions]

Pelosi: Fine, I give up, you go do that.

September 2019:

Schiff [with dried rivulets of blood dripping down from extremely fine holes in his forehead, running into his eyes]: Have you seen the press we're getting! MSNBC and CNN can't stop showing us. CNN is now "All drill, all the time!" Rachel Maddow's ready to go on the air with her own drill, just to show her support for us.

Pelosi: Fine. Let's do it. But many of our people can't stay on their feet doing this kind of thing like you can, Schiff. Let's do it all in the SCIF in the basement, so we can keep the cameras out in case anybody pees their pants or does something else that doesn't look good on camera. And keep the Republicans out, too, so they can't learn the tricks of your methods.
