    Simple poll. Obviously Bolton has direct information that is relevant to the trial, but the Trump party is making great efforts to prevent that from happening. Depending on his testimony he could almost single-handedly exonerate the president. I'm particularly interested in why you think he should or shouldn't be allowed to testify.

    No. Schifferbrains should have called him in the House. Why didn't he? No do-overs in the Senate.

    And the "Trump party' has not prevented anything since he hasn't even been under subpoena yet.

    Your poll is based on lies. Shocker.

    I would like to see all relevant individuals testify, starting with the influence peddlers around which the whole thing is based.

    Bolton? Sure. Giuliani? Sure. Biden and Biden. Definitely. Schiff? For sure. Whistleblower? Definitely. Heck, I'm all for putting Obama and Hillary up there if their dirty hands are on this.

    Stupid partisans only want SOME people to testify. I want all of them to testify.

    The thing is, John Bolton resigned, apparently to spend more time with his family, trying to lobby them, on behalf of the MIC, in an effort to convince them to invade Iran, North Korea, Syria, Russia, China, Nova Scotia, Cleveland, Easter Island and Lichtenstein simultaneously.

    However, none of that is relevant. The entire impeachment thingy is a non-starter. It is a nearly 100% partisan effort to nullify the 2016 presidential election, as evidenced by the vote in the House.

    With the very notable exception of Tulsi (Gabbard D-Hawaii 2nd Directorate aka secret KGB agent :rolleyes: ), who is the only house dem with even an iota of credibility, integrity, sanity or honesty, voting present, it was a totally partisan effort.

    And the moonbat TDS support group coalition of Democrats and former 2016 failed Republican butthurt presidential candidates (Mittens, Little Marco) does not have enough votes in the Senate.

    They took it to trial. Now it’s time to hear from the witnesses! Don’t be a sore loser.

    Yeah, sure. Mcgahn's case started in April of last year and is still not resolved. The next president is sworn in a year from now.

    Yes...

    Why?

    Like you wrote he can either save Trump or in my personal opinion sink Trump...

    Bolton is a wildcard and if called this could cause Trump to go into attack mode...

    Dimwingers have to work with the evidence they have.

    We are following the Clinton impeachment rules. The House already had all their evidence. It isn't the job of the Senate to make a case, that's on the House.
