I listened live to the opening statements by Schiff and Nunes and the first two interviewees.

The Republicans are playing hopscotch during 3rd grade recess, and the Democrats are hunting for goddamn bear with a howitzer.

It's fortunate that the Republicans are so craven and totally lacking in any integrity... otherwise I would feel really bad for them. We always knew Nunes was a simp and a weasel, but today, he reached a low that ANYONE can recognize from the playground: When you have nothing material to say about the issue, drag in a bunch of other completely irrelevant stuff to try and distract people.

The problem is, that his statement wasn't even crafted elegantly to hide what he's doing: He basically said it outright.

And calling the Official Whitehouse "Transcript" of the Ukraine call a "false document, fabricated by the Democrats" is ...

... nah fuck it. It's not even worth mentioning. It is expected. The Republicans are using Austin Powers movies as documentaries about How to Be Evil. It's just so ..... sad.
