      @Sheik Yo Booty Right. Im glad you believe just about anything they say. Good job. If they say Trump throws babies off of freeway overpasses into oncoming traffic for fun, you’d be 100% prepared to believe 100% of everything they say without question of where the info came from. You sir, are a goddamned genius.

  2. But Ukraine is not a Member of EU.
    Republican Swamp is too Murky….👆

      Nah. Just subversive jews, just like Michael Cohen. Trump’s biggest mistake is having a jew anywhere near his administration. They got their embassy move to Jerusalem and now they’re going to ensure they get someone in the states to flood the country with the 3rd world.

    • @MIchael Rigby 😂😂😂😂😂

    Demented Donnie is going down.

  5. I want to be a fly on the wall just for one day.

  6. Trump: ” Nope,  I don’t know those gentlemen. I’ve never met them. Okay I may have met them once. Okay I met them like a dozen times. Nope, they were not working with Rudy in Ukraine. Okay, they were working with Rudy in Ukraine, but it’s not what you think. Okay, it is what you think, but it’s not a big deal, yada yada yada “something unintelligible” I’m being treated so unfairly,….Hillary’s emails.”

    Had to get his lies in line with the White House. Now he’s ready to go Lie under oath!😂

    • @Stephen Durasso they cannot or refuse to see the crimes committed by the VP Biden.

    • @Stephen Durasso I am focused on the President. No deflection allowed now. Later investigate all parties.

    • @Raymond Cruz Sheep who have turned into wolves. The corrupt are going down.

      Pretty convenient for you to believe isnt it? Thats how you asshats been dealing with this since before Russia. Its all a conspiracy and setup by Trump. Never thinking for a second about the actual political estsblishment being professional liars. You people keep lumping Trump (political outsider) with establishment corruption.

    If he shows it will be the start of others to speak to save their future. This guy has a lot to lose if he sides with Frump.

    • I don’t believe he’ll say anything because they kept the incriminating documents (text) out. He’ll plead the fifth.

  9. “Sondland who? I think he brought me coffee once.” -DJT

  10. He needed time to get his story straight. He’s a rookie, and likely needs to practice lying and pleading the 5th.

    • @heavy chevy My Dear Friend. It is only President Trump HIMSELF who makes him “look bad”. All the 150 year old highly respected newspapers that college graduates read merely report his vile actions and filthy mouth. I suggest you put your support behind a better republican in 2020. A few want to primary against him and they’re way more honest and knowledgable about foreign affairs. PEACE

      You Leftists are absolutely brainwashed by the MSM. Its pathetic really.

      @heavy chevy aw geez.

    Sondland gonna try to save his own skin!!!

  12. Multiple Deep Throats in this debacle.

  13. The rich man is showing because he’s scared of going to jail lol. “Subpoena ” is indeed a game changer. No one messes with that.

  14. Don’t believe it. If he shows he’ll swear there was no quid pro quo and there is Biden corruption. The seeming defiance of the Trump admin is a setup.

      @UCE1rRrR8XaoEMuGPE3bsoNQ I’m not going to sit here and pretend Hunter is perfect, far from it, it’s public Knowledge that he struggled with addiction in the past. But that’s a problem of his private life. Theres no evidence (unless you want to link me a credible source) that Biden used the office of the vice president to further his personal interests. Trump on the other hasn’t done much of anything to deny the fact that he explicitly used the office of the president to further a personal political campaign. And if you deny that the transcript wasn’t an explicit example of a quid pro quo you are so mired in biasie to notice the truth in front of your eyes

    • Michelle Bennett | October 11, 2019 at 11:25 AM | Reply

      Stephen Durasso Biden halted aid to Ukraine in conjunction with other countries unless they fired the prosecutor who WASN’T investigating Hunter’s company at the time. Our own intelligence services have already debunked this, and it’s disturbing that people are trusting foreign agencies against our own military and law enforcement. Trump has undermined our faith in our own institutions and it could undo our democracy.

    • @Michelle BennettLater with Biden- Now with the president.

    • Yep, just like he waited hours before getting back to Taylor, he’s spoken with Trump again and decided to come, but won’t give up the goods.

    “Despite,” or since hes recieved “adjusted” instruction?

  16. Sondland got his job by donating loads of money. He’s not experienced and he’s not particularly smart, so if he decides to lie under oath it will be great fun.

  17. Smart move. The administration is unraveling and it’s time to get right with the law.

  18. Seems like Taylor wouldn’t be the man most willing to talk. I wonder when we’ll hear from him?

  19. Looks like Guliani has some explaining to do his lies are up.

  20. “I plead the fifth on the grounds it may incriminate me…”
