    Maybe Trump should send a Peloton to Nancy Pelosi for Christmas?

    House Judiciary released a report arguing, in part, that a President can be impeached for “illegitimate motives” even if his actions are “legally permissible.”

    Imagine a knock at your door at 2 am.

    It is police in riot gear, with dogs and a heli, there to arrest you.

    "What am I been charged with?"

    "Illegitimate motives."

    This discouraging about the rest of the American Networks not doing their job. We know why CNN, msnbc, and all of the others that don’t. They are frauding the American people. But I’m seeing things that are news worthy that’s not being shown on Fox News as well.

    It's amazing how short-sighted the modern day Democratic party has become. Obama issued overreaching Executive orders which they cheered but now they are irate that Trump has followed that precedent. They eliminated the filibuster for Federal judges and that came back to bite them in the *** during the Gorsuch/Kavanaugh confirmations. Now they have lowered the bar for impeaching a President to pretty much anything the opposition party wants. It seems to never dawn on them that the weapons they create will be used against them eventually.

    I literally tuned in to OAN the very day the reports that @Joe Fan posted above came on. It was the morning of the 3 profs testifying. I was watching Fox News, ad nauseam impeachment coverage with the usual suspects. Became fed up and switched to OAN.

    Haven't watched much FN since. Have they or anyone else discussed these reports from OAN? Everyone wants to hear from Rudy. Well, there he is, with 1st hand people involved.

    I’m going to start tuning in to OAN. America is not getting the truth. All of those networks are spreading fake news daily and Fox although is truthful for the most part, they are also voiding delivering certain news reports for whatever reason. Also they aren’t challenging the left like they use to. Chris Wallace who I use to respect a lot has been showing his true colors. He actually acts like he’s angry when questioning republicans and then he will not challenge the left with follow up question. I’m sitting there wanting to do a follow up to a blantant lie they are telling and he just lets it go without challenging them. I think he has a bad case of TDS.

    Yep, only bad thing about Shepp Smith leaving was he didn't take Wallace with him.

    There was talk of when the Murdoch sons took over, the leanings would start to go more to the Left. Well, I feel that is happening now on there.

    So fed up with the likes of Juan Williams and Jessica Tarlow calling Trump and his remarks racist, etc., and not being challenged on it. There was a time not long ago they would not get away with that on Fox News.

    And he has great detail

    It is a good test -- anyone who seriously cares about what happened with and in Ukraine will watch
    Anyone who doesnt watch, doesnt care and never did

    Of course, any serious journalist and the investigators the House must use could have found all this out, too, right?

    Instead, all the MSNBC and CNN folks have spent time discussing how nefarious it is that Rudy would be "looking into" anything. Laughable.

    Horn6721 Half of seeming clever is keeping your mouth shut.

    Here is the wording from the House Judiciary Report.
    "“The question is not whether the President’s conduct could have resulted from permissible motives. It is whether the President’s real reasons, the ones in his mind at the time, were legitimate.”
    This isn't an emoticon strong enough to wtf this.

    Is there any anti Trumper on here who can try to justify this?

    I remember wondering when the Murdoch sons took over if Fox would start going that direction. Unfortunately it’s pretty obvious they have.

    Did you cut off the part where she said one was about a 5year investigation that turned up a hummer and one was treason?

    I don't disagree with that characterization of what's important. His real reasons are what's most important. However, the investigations made no serious effort to establish what his motivations actually were. They half-assed this issue and frankly didn't even try very hard. Refusing to try to enforce subpoenas is indefensible and would be legal malpractice if the House was a group of lawyers representing a client. They basically relied on presumptions of guilt and opinions from people who lacked personal knowledge. Well, that's not going to cut ice with anybody who isn't already hostile to Trump.

    You are confused (as usual) as to what the newsworthy event was.
    Was it listening to these people regurgitate the talking points they were spoon fed this morning? Erm, no, we get that every day.
    Or, was it that ABC and CNN, collectively, for the first time in memory, asked a Democrat politician to explain his/her hypocrisy?
    My dude, this was history being made.
    And you completely missed it.
    You are too easily distracted by the squirrels. Is it intentional or simply route reflex at this point?

    IF this is mentioned on MSNBC/CNN it will only be in the context of "Crazy Rudy" and conservative OAN. Nothing to see here, folks...

    Nice spin. Clinton perjured himself and obstructed justice in a sexual harassment lawsuit where he was accused of exposing himself to a female subordinate during a job interview. There was no question that he committed a felony. He was held in contempt of court and disbarred. Democrats refused to remove him from office for one reason only - he was a Democrat.

    Accusing Trump of treason is really stupid, Bubba. Be better.

    If it was Kavanaugh or someone else who did what Clinton did, I'm sure Dems would still say it was just a "hummer".
