    Why are the RINO's in Congress Allowing This Uncontested Slander Festival?

    That's what it is, when you are not allowed to "confront your accuser." You bet it's not a trial. And it is the job of the opposition party to call foul. THEY are the reason this is happening.

    It's day after day of what has turned into a perpetual accusation crusade. Yet nobody accused is allowed to speak or even be present.

    It violates every tenet of America's legal system, yet they are using subpoena powers and other legal authority.

    To those claiming that this is just how congressional hearings and investigations work, that's not true. When congress holds hearings involving companies, those companies are allowed to have representatives of the company present, along with their lawyers. They are also able to refute accusations and offer contrary evidence.

    Because they want to distract people from the issues that greatly make this country worse.

    Bull. How many of Trump's advisors have refused to appear and testify, especially after being subpoenaed? In fact, Trump told four of them not to cooperate. https://www.politico.com/news/2021/1...ubpoena-515593

    As far as Trump is concerned, the committee would LOVE to have him appear and tell his side of the story. Knowing Trump's proclivity for lying, they would very likely get him to perjure himself.
    We have long had death and taxes as the two standards of inevitability. But there are those who believe that death is the preferable of the two. "At least," as one man said, "there's one advantage about death; it doesn't get worse every time Congress meets."

    Testify to who? Four witch burners every one of whom hates Trump's guts, with no one Trump selects allowed to cross examine? You have zero comprehension of how the adversarial legal system is supposed to work. Even the worst democrat libtard law school professor should say "This ain't right."

    First of all, this isn't a trial. Second, if some of the Trump lemmings who've refused to testify were to do so, I assume they could present whatever relevant evidence they had. Personally, I would have preferred to have a better mix of committee members, even if I had to listen to a toady like Jim Jordan, one of the biggest Trump ass-kissers around.

    But even the most fervent Trump sycophants can't deny one thing: that Trump urged Pence to do something he had no constitutional authority to do -- unilaterally reject certified electors. In addition, he riled up the crowd by spreading the lie that Pence had such authority by saying "I hope Mike is going to do the right thing. I hope so...Because if Mike Pence does the right thing, we win the election...He has the absolute right to do it...All Vice President Pence has to do is send it back to the states to recertify and we become president and you are the happiest people." And when Pence refused to do Trump's bidding, members of the mob began to chant "Hang Mike Pence!" THAT ain't right.

    Consider this: If Vice President Biden had rejected electors in January 2017 such that he and Clinton "won" the election, Trump and the GOP would have gone ballistic. But somehow it would have been OK for Pence to do so?
