    Who the hell keeps napkin notes on hand in case they get thrown under the bus? Bringing up the Parnas stuff appears to be a desperate move, IMO. How can you verify that he wrote it during a meeting? You can't. Maybe he did, but it's unverifiable.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham: Who in the media has debunked the Biden-Ukraine allegations?


    https://www.foxnews.com/media/sen-lindsey-graham-hunter-biden-ukraine-media

    It’s time to call a spade a spade. We need to stop pretending that the Bidens are not corrupt and everything is perfectly legit, it would make the Trump criticisms a bit more considerable.

    Whether the Bidens are corrupt or not it doesn't change whether what Trump did was right. As noted in impeachment presentations. Trump didn't care about corruption in the Ukraine from the Bidens or others until 2019 and not until Biden had entered the race and nearly every poll was showing him beating Trump soundly head to head.

    The Bidens could be bought and sold and that still wouldn't excuse Trump's abuse of the power of the Executive..

    Lev Parnas' information should be taken with a lot of salt and skepticism but that doesn't mean it's worthless or desperate. Parnas is a known liar but what matters is if it matches or corroborates with other information that is out there. Much of what he has said has matched with information from people such as Sondland, Yuvonovitch and others who not only have more solid reputations but also testified under oath. Further his collaborator Hyde, has admitted to what Parnas as saying, although he said he wasn't serious about it.

    This case is not dependent on any single individual and especially not Lev Parnas who hasn't yet given testimony under oath. Most good prosecutors wouldn't rely upon just the word of one person but build up corroborating evidence.

    I suspect that the Fox News A-Team wants the weekend off?

    Any bets that Fox News, that arbiter of fairness and truth, will air every second of Trump defense team's response, after airing almost none of the Democrat's?

    Trump is world class corrupt, while the Bidens not so much.

    What's next? Claiming that Joe lie in public a lot? grabs women by their pussy a lot? has never read the Constitution? etc.

    They are free to investigate Biden. It is a separate investigation and doesn't change anything Trump did.

    Also, there's no evidence Biden did anything wrong. So that investigation might not go well.

    Just because things are going poorly for Trump, it doesn't mean you supporters of his need to keep grabbing at the Biden claims.

    What did any of what I said make you think I thought they would get 67 votes?

    I know it's an uphill battle but if they keep showing how they keep contradicting themselves its very attainable.

    What?

    From what I understand it was notes he took after a phone call.

    Why would he need to keep napkins, have you not ever been provided napkins in a meeting when there is food?

    There is much more to Parnas than the napkin.

    My guess is that Collins will not get another term.

    Her polls are among if not the lowest of all senators but I don't give republican voters credit to not voting republican candidates, no matter how horrible.

    Which is why a separate, transparent would have been key. Instead your boy Trump sent Michael Cohen 2.0 to get political dirt by holding up aid to a foreign government.

    Who in the media has debunked Trump’s abuse of power?
