Although I don't know who all the Impeachment Managers were for the judicial impeachments, so there may not have been any women in that role either because it is only recently that women have been elected in Congress in the numbers that they are there now.

27. Today's news headlines should read

SENATE COVERUP!!

I am listening to NPR in order to do necessary things while following the 'trial' .

Early on, an NPR commentator engaged in blatant, shameless bothsideism. When Pubs claimed that the trial is set up the same as Clinton's and Dems pointed out the glaring differences, the NPR commentator ssid, during a break, that both claims were correct and then cited similarities while glossing over differences.

NPR also annoyingly cuts into speakers with 2 and sometimes 3 back to back announcements on the hour identifying all their local affiliates, who is speaking at the moment, which party they are with, and the 'news' that "You are listening to the US Senate impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump."

By the time they finish, I have missed big chunks of the speaker's comments or arguments.

You might be able to try CSPAN Radio (app or from their weblink - https://www.c-span.org/networks/standalone/?autoplay)

I don't think that the radio version requires you have a cable/sat provider subscription to use like their video streams (when done directly from the CSPAN website). None of the talking heads except during recesses or breaks.

What they havenít yet felt are the repercussions of their dysfunctional dogma. Theyíre bleeding the country of value - moral and monetary. It should catchup with them, and could occur before the election. It didnít just start with tRump. Weíre already paying for republican policies from past decades. They deserve to go down for their corruption and siphoning off of the futures of the younger generations.

71. Schiff explained that Bolton and kupperman share the same attorney

So when kupperman sued to avoid complying with the subpoena, the Intelligence Committee assumed Bolton would do the same when he threatened just that.

Since then, the kupperman lawsuit wound up in dismissal at the end of December, and interest in Bolton has been renewed as a result.

(More generally, he should testify because itís the right thing to do.)

82. Lawyers (except for the Drumpf side show hucksters) are readers

so I expect he has read up on what happened with the Clinton impeachment and was probably aware when the Nixon inquiries and hearings were going on given his age (he would have been 18 in 1973).

93. When Cipollone used a reference to a USSC ruling,

I thought to myself, Roberts is the one guy who is going to know if this is correct or not.

95. The one thing I have noticed with Roberts

is that he will give one side a good "win" and then come back around and give them a good "loss". Literally. Like a (bizarre) "balance".

(e.g., rule "for" Obamacare and then come back around and rule "against" VRA Sections)

84. Jason Crow (D-CO) up to present for this Schumer Amendment

He is a freshman Congressman (from 2018) so this is his first big break. As I understand, he was one of the freshman who had originally campaigned against Pelosi when she was running for speaker.

86. Was at work all day excited to get home to watch the trial...

Made it about 30 minutes. Not the most exciting television. Hopefully it will pick up after all the housekeeping.

87. Today was pretty much going to be devoted to the housekeeping stuff

debating the Rules Resolution (including debating the Amendments to it and then voting to table them by Turtle).

HOWEVER, the Democrats ARE getting info out to the public again - and to the Senators, many of whom (including on our side) haven't had chance to really delve into the case evidence outside of what their aides may have summarized for them or what they read or heard in the news.

91. You need to realize that though Dems are smartly introducing some evidence, today is all about

deciding the process. The past three segments have been presenting arguments in favor of specific amendments to allow various testimony and documents.

By getting actual evidence in, they are not simply making dry arguments for inclusion of witnesses and documents. They are exposing Republican obstruction and whitewashing for all the world to see.

94. I get it now...

With the Clinton impeachment, it was a huge deal. I remember lots of watercooler talk at the office about it. No one was talking about this one today. It doesnt seem like as big of a deal.

Impeachment is a major historical event. I'm so far not feeling it with this one. Is it because the outcome is supposedly deter,ined? I dont know.

96. the orange asshole has sucked all the air out of our lives and the news cycle for 3 or 4 years

everyday is some new trolling, nobody can keep up with it all. the Clinton impeachment was still basically pre cable and pre internet for the masses. it is a new world and the troll is a master of distraction. distracted morons can't keep up with truth and fact even if they wanted to.

97. Eggs-actly.

And it's a beauty to behold on our side.

They have been excellent :: competent, well-prepared and totally aware they are also speaking to the American public, not just the Senators.

WELL DONE!

89. Interesting. Crow started with his experience of searching

For scrap metal to fashion armor for their vehicles when he was stationed in Baghdad. That when troops donít receive funds or equipment they need, it is a personal matter to him.

Then turned to the hundreds of millions withheld from Ukraine. Said that we know thereís more to the story. That we know this, because the pResident had to turn to the OMB to find a way to further hold up the funds.

He mentioned how many in the senate chamber voted for funding to Ukraine. (I didnít catch the number, but I liked that he referenced their votes.)
