    Impeachment trial is set to begin. Will klobuchar and Warren leave the campaign trail in order to demonstrate the seriousness this moment in America's history? What does that do to their campaigns?

    Will Biden be called to testify? What does that do to his campaign?

    Who does that leave campaigning...

    Yes
    Probably nothing- It's not like they aren't in the public by fulfilling their senatorial Responsibilities.
    Given that Senate Republicans are acting in bad faith- I'd say probably.
    It turns him into a victim.
    Buttigieg, Yang, Bloomberg, Steyer, Gabbard.

    Klobuchar and Warren will attend the impeachment trial.

    Will Trump’s GOP co-conspirators in the Senate call the Bidens? Their first gambit will be to block all witnesses. If there are any witnesses they will likely demand that one or both Bidens testify. Why? Because like any guilty defendant, the defendant Trump wants to put someone else on trial.

    Why are you worried about that?

    What should happen: McConnell should simply ignore the seven morons appointed by Nancy Bug-Eyes and call a vote to acquit immediately and throw the phony shit right back in the Democrats' faces.

    what gives you the impression that I'm worried? I'm not worried in the slightest if you're asking.

    As you can see by what's actually written, I was inquiring about the effects of the impeachment trial on persons campaigning

    I think there may be an effect on their ability to face-to-face campaign around the country

    The Bidens are guilty of nothing, nor can they speak to Trump's guilt/innocence.

    I don't know that we won't get that, it's just the timing that's in question

    If you're not worried, exactly why do you care how they handle campaigning and attending the trial?

    Most likely, but as I noted in my title we're talking scorched-earth politics. The issue too many peoples view will be why he was called to testify to begin with. Which is damaging enough

    That’s clear thinking if you think the impeachment trial of a president should be turned into a trial of others (who have been charged with no crimes).

    Joe Biden is guilty of malfeasance in office and abuse of power. Hunter Biden is only guilty of being stupid, which is not actually a crime.

    Interesting point. Is the president actually charged with a crime? If so can you cite the code and statute

    How so?
    So we are in agreement, Hunter Biden did nothing wrong.

    I have asked for months for someone to say what crimes were allegedly committed by the Bidens.

    Crickets.
