10. Lofgren addresses impeachment history/practices so the record shows that Roberts heard it.

Not just the Senate.

And that the American people know the history of impeachment practices.

And what this president has NOT done compared to all the other defendants of impeachment proceedings.

Good graphic/video summary of the president's obstructions.

Straightforward, even toned straight talk. Excellent presentation.

as a staffer on the House Judiciary Committee back then. She ran for office and was on that committee as a congresswoman during the Clinton impeachment and is of course a senior member on that committee today. She even pre-dates ASS-ley working "in Congress" as he wasn't there until after Nixon left.

29. Lofgren after going down the list of missing documents and playing

Clips from Vindman, Williams, and Sondland. Stepped through the importance of others like Volker who has new evidence to submit.

She went on further to read out the findings of the GAO that the OMB violated the law under the ICA (Impoundment Control Act).

There’s so much, really.

Lofgren is easy to listen to, and I’m struggling to type up notes. Is an excellent section to watch for the cliff notes of the many hours of House testimony.

He cannot, for the legacy of justice under his judicial leadership, let a trial be handled by obfuscation, lies and blaming the prosecuting managers for what the defendant did to obstruct their oversight.

Collins was very quiet and I wasn't sure, but it sounded like she said no.

This is a good way for the House to get their point across - through arguments regarding amendments - even if they're tabled eventually.

106. You misunderstood my point

there is at least an opportunity for the House to get the point across about obstruction and an opportunity to reiterate the crimes of the administration.

...Romney voted to table the amendment...he can shove it. Repubs are all the same.

Well, we all know how this will go. I was surprised that the vote was within range, but I do not remember how many we have there.

Who do you think will be the one to call for a vote to dismiss the trial? Is that
McConnell?

You can send faxes or actually call your Congress reps. The bot dials the number so you don't even need to look it up. A wonderful tool. Just finished leaving an angry message to Rob Portman, the Trump sycophant.
