                The only PROOF in this impeachment process is PROOF that ambassador Pelosi is a super stupid idiot.
                But she proved that years ago.

                                          Ted Cruz 2016:

                                          This man is a pathological liar. He doesn't know the difference between truth and lies. He lies practically every word that comes out of his mouth. And he had a pattern that I think is straight out of a psychology textbook. His response is to accuse everybody else of lying. He accuses everybody on that debate stage of lying, and it's simply a mindless yell. Whatever he does, he accuses everyone else of doing. The man cannot tell the truth, but he combines it with being a narcissist. A narcissist at a level I don’t think this country has ever seen. Donald Trump is such a narcissist, that Barack Obama looks at him and goes, ‘Dude, what’s your problem?’ Everything in Donald’s world is about Donald. And he combines being a pathological liar, and I say pathological because I actually think Donald—if you hooked him up to a lie-detector pass, he could say one thing in the morning, one thing at noon, and one thing in the evening, all contradictory, and he'd pass the lie-detector test each time. Whatever lie he’s telling, at that minute he believes it, but the man is utterly a moron.

                                                  Senator Ted speaks well; in stark contrast to the Wishy Washy ways of the impeachment proceedings.

                                                      Cruze makes sense about acquittal because the dums will then go on record to show how useless their socialist party is against the Republic, and should be abolished.

                                                                                                  The Senate should have told them to go f@ck themselves when they arrived with the articles but there's more at play here. The American people are going to see the Clown Democratic Party for who they are.

                                                                                                  They are people who care about themselves & have one agenda which is not to help the American people.

I hope you are right and all relative documents will be available and relative witnesses will testify to have a fair trial so the jurors can determine innocence or guilt. Anything less would be a cover up. Bolton wants to testify and he should. Surely there is one of the Presidents men who can testify for the President under oath.

                                                                                                  so what does that tell you?
