      I believe previous Presidents received gifts from foreign entities that they then kept when they left office. Give me a break.

        Well, it looks like carrying the fight to the Democrats by counter-punching Schiff didn't turn out to well.


        ​House Democrats block GOP resolution to censure Schiff


        Monday, 7:12 p.m.: House Democrats on Monday blocked a vote on Republican resolution to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff over his handling of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

        Lawmakers voted to table the censure resolution, effectively killing it, by a vote of 218 to 185. The vote fell completely along party lines, with independent Representative Justin Amash, a former Republican, siding with the Democrats.

        The measure was introduced last week by GOP Representative Andy Biggs of Arizona, the chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus. It cited several reasons for Schiff's censure, including his recitation of an embellished account of the call between Mr. Trump and the president of Ukraine during a congressional hearing, his accusations that Mr. Trump was colluding with the Russians and contact between committee staff and the whistleblower. --

          I think Trump needs to come up with a good defense - like a believable reason for holding up the Ukrainian military aid, and give up on that cock-and-bull story about waiting to be sure there was no corruption in the Ukraine. Give us a break!

            The Pentagon released the money in April, Trump had nothing to do with it. Ukraine did not even know it was coming.

              Trump put a hold on the money a week before the July 25th phone call, and did not release it until September 11th.
              That is six weeks, which is the exact duration of the Battle of the Bulge in WWII.
              The Ukrainians thought the money was coming, but did not know that there was a presidential hold on it.

                Sean Hannity is defending Trump's use of the words, "I would like you to do us a favor though," saying that it was just a common expression used by the president.
                He must ask for a lot of favors.
                Picture a little 5-year-old boy sitting at the dinner table, and his mother saying that they were going to have apple pie for dessert.
                The little boy says, "I love apple pie."
                Then the mother says, "I would like you top do mommy a favor though, and finish eating your spinach."
                Do you think the little boy would not make the connection?

                  If Virginia had followed through with their anti gun legislation you would have seen the start of the 2nd civil war in the US.
