He isn't impeached until the Senate says so! Up until now it's just the democratic house pissing into the wind!

Actually he is already impeached (indicted in public court terms) he is being "tried" in the Senate.

Hilarious how the Dems are asking for "fairness" now.

It seems more accurate to say that they are demanding fairness now.

It should get really wild when President Trump is exonerated and the House goes off on another impeachment foray.

.
From what I gather, he is officially impeached..which means he has been convicted by the house. However, that doesn't mean he is automatically removed from office.

Now, theoretically, the 'trial" is over..and should not continue..the house has shot it's wad, and there should be no more "witnesses" or testimonies.

Normally, the senate is expected to be the "adults in the room", and their job is simply to review what the house did, and either approve or disapprove, so far

as removal from office is concerned.

..But this particular proceeding the house so %*^+$ed up, the senate is tempted to allow more testimony, just so the defense..which was prohibited by

the house, from actually defending itself..can get a few words in. The house wants to continue the "trial" in the senate setting, simply because they know they
.

&^+*#$ed up in a royal manner, so they would like a redux, hoping for a "magic bullet" to appear from somewhere.

In some ways, the senate would like to just review the stuff the house delivered to them, which was worthless..and then toss the whole thing out,

which they legally can do.. However the house would cry bloody murder, so the senate must consider the Low Information Voter !

I think the senate needs to use the house's partisan BS when they put this together as a standard. It is the senate's job to weigh on what the house handed them and not to give them a second chance! No do overs!
