    This is just so wrong. No president should be threatening a senator. The sad thing is that trump does and the republican senators cower in fear.

    No president should be doing this.

    How do you take it that Trump is doing the threatening? Oh yeah, forgot. "orange man bad"

    Democrats are wrapping up their impeachment arguments on Friday, telling Senators they can’t trust President Trump. Nancy Cordes has learned that a Trump confidante reportedly told Republican Senators that “a vote against the president and your head will be on a pike.” She breaks down the implications on Capitol Hill.

    Presidents have warned congressional members since Washington.

    Trump’s an asshole, but why do his detractors think he’s the first asshole to be potus? LOL.

    I don't think anyone believes he's the first one.

    The thing is. He shouldn't be doing this. Just because other presidents were assholes, doesn't excuse what trump is doing.

    No president should ever threaten a senator. Not like this.

    Do we want to keep having people like this in our White House? Or do we want something better than this?

    No house should be experimenting with witch trials either.

    Tough luck bro, if you go down this path you will face the full resistance of the American people, by any means necessary. You will not be facing any "fairness" for you have none. So stop the screeches and get ready for a defeat.

    Yes he has threatened the jury that is supposed to rule on this case.

    Anyone else would be charged for trying to influence and threaten a jury.

    When will we vote for better people to be in our White House?

    At least Republicans are consistent in their authoritarianism.

    The Senators swore an oath to be impartial

    Senators who are deliberating under a threat from the President are not impartial
