Once again, an innocent man does not go to such extremes to cover up every document demonstrating his innocence. If Trump is so innocent, he wouldn't care if his tax returns or the Mueller report were released 20 times. It wouldn't disclose anything of value at any point. What innocent man tweets, "I'm innocent! But I won't show you the documents." And what about Congress being an EQUAL branch of government? This is not a monarchy. And Trump seems to be trying to cover up evidence of his own wrongdoing. How is that acceptable? It would be like a bank robber suppressing the bank's surveillance camera footage.

As long as McConnell - who has done away with any pretense of the Senate being anything but the White House's front office - can muster 33 votes against, it's a moot point. The Trumpenproletariat will consider it a complete victory, and McConnell - who's evil, but not stupid - will release R senators from purple states to vote for impeachment, to bolster their credentials with undecided voters. It's not a winning move.

This country needs to get past this BS.
The country can never get past the BS as long as the master of BS is in residence at the WH.

Trump has seen the redacted parts. That's why he's trying so hard to make sure no one else does.

Good, the more they seek to impeach, the higher Trump's approval rating will go.
And he's already got a 44.4% average at RealClearPolitics-

This would expose a lot more wrongdoing to the public. At which point the Dems decline to take an impeachment vote and instead leave it the to public to decide to remove Trump from office at the ballot box.
This would be a great strategy. I hope it is being seriously considered.
