    Well,actually, they "why" is of the most importance.

    Trump holding aid is not illegal nor against the rules. Remember, biden did the same thing.

    The "why" is important because without it, what trump did is exactly what biden did.

    I think the intent needs to be found. Right now, nobody can prove intent.

    Don’t think so and is it required or an option?

    If it was required then no one would be debating this.

    There’s no rule making it a requirement.

    But to have a trial without witnesses would be unprecedented.

    The Trial is over. That takes place in The House. These are jury deliberations and The House already Gaveled The Case and delivered it to the jury.

    How is republicans saying he will vote to acquit trump any more wrong than dems saying they will vote to remove.

    The only difference between the two is that a couple of repubs have voiced their intentions and the dems have not, but you have to know that probably all of those dems in the senate have made up their minds already.

    It's not a trial. The Trial is over.

    These are Jury Deliberations.

    The House's job was to try the case. The Senate's job is to hear the House's case. The House is now admitting they failed to prove their case, presenting no crime, no evidence, and no witnesses. (Perhaps they should have taken more time rather than rushed to Impeach.)

    If witnesses are to be called, the list needs to start with Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, Nancy Pelosi, etc...

    There has not been a trial. The trial is starting in the next few days. That’s what all the pomp and circumstance was yesterday in the Senate. The very first step in starting the trial.
