  1. I am going to keep on saying this: This should be no surprise to Pence. Pence knows what Trump expected from him. You can’t be apart of the culture one day and turn your back the next. Pence helped to create this culture. Reap what you sow. This is why we speak up when things are going wrong from both parties and don’t wait until it’s out of control. This should be a lesson to politicians do what’s right for the people of the United States and not for your pockets.

  2. Trump: “Look, I just need you to find me 11,780 more votes.”

    Lt. Governor: “There are no more votes Mr. President.”

    Trump: “Well have you checked under the sofa cushions?” 🤣😅

  3. Accepting a pardon is an admission of guilt. By seeking a pardon, Eastman was admitting that he had committed a crime or crimes.

    1. @Sapphonymph 820 Let’s go Brandon is code for: I’m an ignorant hick who can’t get over the loss of my conman, and I need a new way to display to the rest of the world just how stupid I am.

  4. Disgusting how beau zeau put Pense and his family in harm’s way. What a despicable human being (if we can call that orange clown that) he is!

    1. @Elmosweed likewise….I don’t care what people do as long as it’s consenting adults. People telling me how to speak isn’t going to happen ever.

    1. @Falcon Quest hmmm. So on my end I see it. But you re not getting it. Hmmm. We have a pretty good idea what’s up with that. Pls respond sufficient to let me know you got this message.

  5. Duhhhh. He knows most of what he does is criminal 🤦🏽‍♂️
    He’s done this his whole life.

    1. @Gerry Stewart Good thing you have a mirror…keep telling yourself that until the midterms. and, thank you!

    2. @Gerry Stewart Yep. And, it is the most important thing we should focus on 24-7 until the midterms…totally agree 🤣🇲🇽

  6. What did Trump expect would happen, that Pence would just do what he said and commit a crime for Trump?! If he had, Trump might’ve just thrown Pence under the bus and possibly pretend that he didn’t know what Pence had done for him.

  7. The biggest problem with the whole big lie, insurrection, coup is that the government branches seems to be laden with enablers, sympathizers, and supporters. My guess that is why the commission is going after the key players.

    1. @3dsmax rocks lol, lol, lol, Thank you, I really needed a heart felt laugh. That was a good one, lol, lol

    2. @Antoni Wojciech “we get all the funding we need out of russia” so, yea! . . . rusia russia russia, glad to see you understand. feel free to copy and paste that quote, let me know what you think.

  8. I don’t even care what happens but for those that truly believe that trump is a great leader… man I just can’t get my mind through that. Mental health awareness here in the US needs to be the main focus of whatever President we elect.

  9. This will all be for nothing if they don’t refer him to the DOJ and prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law. Also, he should not be allowed to serve in government EVER!!

    1. Not by a kangaroo panel that contravenes ,its own rules
      Senate Rule XXVI, which among others, require that ;
      Committees must conform to :
      1.) Including the quorum requirement for minority representation ( 1st failure as those chosen by the republican party were rejected , Adam kizinger and liz cheney were not chosen by republicans bur by pelosi )
      2) Advance submission of witness statements. ( not done )
      3) The opportunity for minority party Senators to call witnesses of their choosing.( not done)

      Any evidence , then has to be given to the doj
      Even if the DOJ attempts to prosecute .
      Those findings will be challenged for contravening ,on the above rulings
      So Good luck .
      This hearings is to feed tds addiction to liberal lemmings
      If you need more, head over to politico for your daily tds
      Keep believing in your liberal overlords

  10. This is what happens when a man like this BECOMES POTUS. From the beginning I knew that he never had the qualifications to be just that. It doesn’t surprise me either that he was capable to do what he did on Jan 6, and everything else he did before the insurgency.

  11. What bothers me more is even with Pence knowing and experiencing all this he STILL wouldn’t testify.

    1. @Spots Corner
      When I say evidence I mean the incriminating kind. Not what you hope and dream about. Thanks.

  12. Wow I wish you would put this much energy into the current administration….lot’s going on 🙃

  13. the actions or inactions taken by trump and his co-conspirators have exposed a great weekness in our national was our vice president forced to hide in a basement? the person who, in an emergency would have to take control of our country, military and nuclear capabilities? I hope someone is hard at work looking at procedural changes to enhance our country’s safety

  14. Not only did he know it then, to this day he still says Mike Pence should have done it. And he will do it again.

  15. There’s a huge difference between Trump being TOLD something – and him KNOWING it. He is/was an absurd and dangerous child and it wouldn’t matter how many times he was told anything – he would never ‘believe’ what he didnt want to – that’s the problem with spoiled children, which is why you should not elect them to high office
