So how did the first day of the impeachment circus go?
lol..if that doesn't clear things up for ya... then there is Adam Schiff denying that he knows who the whistleblower is.

Zelensky has stated that he did not know that the military aid had been held up so how could there be quid pro quid or bribery as Schiff has amended the impeachment charges to? I don't remember congress saying anything when Obama refused to let them go to Ukraine because he was afraid of ramping up tensions with Russia. How can withholding the javelin weapons harm our national security?
The whole Ukraine debacle started when Obama overthrew Ukraine's president because he was friendly with Russia.
That's the basic truth about the coup in Ukraine, and it hasn't benefited anyone other than the warmongers. Ukraine is split in two and stuck in a frozen civil war; its debt-to-GDP ratio has doubled since the US-backed coup; pensions, social services and minimum wages ($140 a month) have been slashed and the people are still ruled by corrupt oligarchs. The US regime change ops also ignited a chain reaction of needless hostility, hysterical Russophobia and crippling sanctions. The EU has lost more than $100 billion in trade with Russia in the last four years; and the US has pushed Russia deep into China's orbit. Just like the neocon adventures in Iraq and Syria, the meddling in Ukraine will go down as another disastrous and reckless chapter in the sordid history of US foreign policy.
There are no repercussions for destabilizing country after country and causing unimaginable suffering and death. Or any of the other heinous things Trump is doing. But try to find out who was involved in trying to overthrow your presidency and look into corruption of the previous administration and bam! you're being impeached. But when your opponents don't have a solid case against you then you can sit back and watch them make fools of themselves. And laugh. Cuz what else can you do?
Trump is a horrible, corrupt and arrogant asshole who is doing lots of damage to us and the country and there are plenty of legitimate reasons to impeach him. But of course congress can't do it for those reasons or they'd have to charge many others for the same thing. So instead we get kabuki impeachment hearings.
