From Chris Hedges via Truthdig:

“The Democratic Party and its liberal supporters are perplexed. They presented hours of evidence of an impeachable offense — Perhaps journalists, by giving voice to opponents of impeachment—who do indeed live in a world not based in fact—created a false equivalency between truth and lies. [It might have been useful to also point out that not only Trump, but also his predecessors of both parties should have been held accountable for] continuation or expansion of presidential wars not declared by Congress, exercising line-item veto power, playing prosecutor, judge, jury and executioner to kill individuals, including U.S. citizens, anywhere on the planet, violating due process and misusing executive orders (See my recent blog: Tarquinius and Trump)…[The final effect of the impeachment hearings] Public opinion remains largely unaffected.”
