Rep Thornberry: Let trump off because we sometimes let murderers and go free

RADDATZ: Congressman, you're again talking about process. The process. I asked you about substance. How do you fend against the substance?

THORNBERRY: Well, as you know -- maybe you know, Martha -- I believe that it is inappropriate for a president to ask a foreign leader to investigate a political rival. Now that leads to a question, if there's a political rival with a family member who’s involved in questionable activity, what do you do? Just let them alone. But set that aside. I believe it was inappropriate. I do not believe it was impeachable. And process -- you know, you all always want to say substance, not process. There's a reason we let murderers and robbers and rapists go free when their due process rights have been violated.

2. Well, speaking of family members, I've got a feeling Junior's real close to Lev and Igor.

Let's investigate him!

3. Umm No.

Mass murderers DO NOT go free.

They get executed.

4. They've settled on "due process"

Just one thing wrong with that: Article I of the Constitution, which gives the House the sole power to impeach. As we saw in the 90s with Clinton, there is no due process to an impeachment. Because the Republicans could scrounge together enough votes to impeach, they did. None of the articles of impeachment referred to the Senate got even a majority vote, let alone the supermajority required for removal.

5. They're trying to confuse the public

but they are also confused. They act like this is a trial. They are lucky that Pelosi gave them what they wanted. Now, they are crying about the witnesses, etc.

And this is when they control the Senate, because they don't want their boy tarnished in any way, despite the fact that it is clearly a deal he was working in order to smear Biden.

CBS is supposed to be carrying the public hearing this Wednesday. Haven't discovered the time, though. Everyone needs to try and watch it.

It's really weird. They are trying to get him off on a technicality, like sometimes happens in the court system. He's the freakin' (pseudo) pRes. But, he's a criminal, and thinks like a criminal.

Everybody wish him into the cornfield.
