Mentioned about the 400 bills sent to the Senate that sit on Turtle's desk.

"We worked with him to do the budget... and the Trade Agreement..." "We don't hate him".

102. I gave so much to the fund against collins during

The kavanaugh hearings, that I figured I’ve space-banked some points against her for this. I’ve contributed to Gideon on her own merits recently. Depending on how this goes, I may turn my sights squarely on collins. Today? I was out to telegraph how much I despise Moscow Midnight Mitch and his ways.

Totaled up to a big single day of contributions for me, and I’m fine with that. I’ve nixxed a lot of mindless consumerist purchases already over the tRump years and have room in the budget for contributions.

76. Yes the latter is true

The Democrats want to avoid the Lucy and the football bait/switch and try for the amendments now - and get the case out there at the beginning because by the time that they might be allowed to do it at the end (IF the GOP vunerables abide by a promise to allow), then the public would have probably already tuned out by then.

84. it's brilliant, best use of a bad setup ...

The Dems get the message out to the public and the press while so many are tuned in, and demonstrate how big a mountain of evidence that is being hidden.

89. Exactly!

Impeachment hearings/trials (and actually any hearings) ARE "boring" (really) and the media hypes them up and then has the talking heads tear them down... and the public eventually tunes out.

For Democrats, it was pretty much "do or die" with the assumption that this might be their only chance to not only get the info to the public but to their own Senators, many of who have not or could not get into the minutia of the House inquiry (and thus needed enough compiled info to talk to constituents about). And it was made worse by Turtle continually changing the Rules resolution on-the-fly in order to ram it through like he's done those judges.

96. lots of charts and bullet points for press and fora

This day (and now, night) reveals an incredible amount of work in a short period of time. Staffers have to be a little frazzled by now, but the work product is ready-made for dissemination in print, tv, and Internet.

over a long weekend (that featured inclement winter weather to boot).

74. Roberts just said there were 2 hours to discuss this next amendment. It's 10:40 on the east coast.

That will make it 12:30+AM when they vote on this one & Schumer said he has quite a few more amendments. BET YA the Pubs tell Turtle it's time to go home now!

90. That's 1 hour per side and the GOP hasn't spent more than maybe 15 - 20 minutes for their arguments.

The stalwart Dems are bringing the voluminous case against tRump.
