  1. It got to be witnesses!

  2. He admitted on T.V…..
    Bring in the server they hid! They’ll get the truth & more….. Maybe even find out what Donald Jezebel Trump & his puppet master Putin talked about in their secret meeting?

    Like most trials, you should weigh both sides of the arguments before coming to a conclusion.

      The whole thing started with Biden and Biden’s CIA whistleblower buddy Eric Charamella. So I think Biden is relevant to the whole scope of the trial. It lays out probable cause for Trump’s ask. If you don’t want the whole truth, then you may want evaluate the reason you don’t want all witnesses. I want all witnesses….not looking to protect Trump, Biden, the Republicans or the Democrats. I want all this BS in the open and whatever comes of it so be it. We need to get the garbage out of Washington.

    • So far no evidence has been presented to defend or exonerate Trump and the GOP has blocked any new evidence from being submitted in the senate trial so far. Therefore what the democrats have presented is the only evidence available.

    • So weigh both sides already; dollars to donuts neither the whistleblower nor either Biden coordinated with or urged Trump or Giuliani or Parnas to generate foreign campaign funds (illegal), engineer a story about a US cyber-attack NOT committed by Ukraine but by Russia (a lie) and conspire to and FIRE an ambassador who’d be honest and stand in the way of their disseminating the lie (obstruction–also illegal) and even going so far as to make veiled threats against the official in communications (if not illegal certainly shady, and the lie about such plotting illegal if repeated under oath–not to mention just plain hypocritical after Trump fired and launched investigations into FBI agents for less–for just SAYING in emails he couldn’t/shouldn’t be president when he held NO government position at the time, making it an after-the-fact vindictive abuse of power meant to serve HIM and not American citizens at ALL)–dragging the people they’re crapping about into the fray wouldn’t make a case for innocence, just be a waste of time by the fools complaining how the whole process is a waste of time; hypocrites much?

    • @Dominik StSilva –and if you wanna take out the garbage start with nuclear waste pollution Giuliani–AFTER he testifies; you want HIM in there don’tcha? Like Trump wants the plague–er, oops, he probably SHOULD hope for the plague at this point–dead men tell no tales

      Ryan Coldiron yes we do. He’s guilty. Biden’s don’t matter. If they did the senate would have done something. This is stupid. Conservatives are terrorist zombie nazis. F’ em all.

  4. I can’t wait for this to blow up in their faces 😂😂😂😂😂

    • @Cpt.Sisko thinks you’re soft. Calling another ” shortbus” when you’re grammar skills are grade 4 at best???smh lol GTFOH!

      @Worm You mean when trump lost the popular vote by Four Million votes? Even so, what about the election of 2012? Irrelevant, right? For the same reason, 2016 does not matter. 2018 showed that people have changed their minds. There were TEN MILLION more votes cast nationwide for Democrats than for REpublicans. Trump literally has the lowest average popularity ratings in history. I await your next slavering, totally moronic , deluded comment.

    • @Kyle Longjohn Source for your fact? Otherwise it’s just an opinion.

  5. “I had a bigger crowd than Beto in El Paso” DJT, with an orphaned baby in the room, in a hospital, where people lay wounded, disfigured and dying. That is all you need to know.

      <"I had a bigger crowd than Beto in El Paso" DJT,>
      And don’t forget, El Paso is STILL TRYING to get PAID for his rally there —- Trump has NOT PAID anything yet. THAT tells you a LOT about this moron in the White House.

    • Trump is so disgusting.

    • GreatWall OfMexico | January 24, 2020 at 9:40 PM | Reply

      @Kathy Holland I can’t look at his face or hear his voice lest I hurl.

    • @GreatWall OfMexico me too. Wish these Trump supporters would wake up. He couldn’t careless about any if us. Second thoughts, your OK if you are a WASP but everyone else needs to wake up.

  6. We need witnesses and documents in the Senate trial

  7. The emoluments clause was violated, personal gain
    Is not limited to money.

    • @SkyGemini my favorite part of the pledge of allegiance is the line that says “and to the democracy, for which it stands, one nation, under god…”

      I tear up everytime

      Harrison Gooch ummmmm, Hunter Biden isn’t a career politician. If he did something wrong, direct the FBI or CIA or NSA or DEA or any other acronym to investigate him. What trump did was none of that. It’s a sham, a facade, a bunch of baloney to take your eyes off the important stuff. Please do us all a favor and watch real news, not Fox entertainment channel

      William Gullett the idea that America is the greatest place on earth is about as true as saying Disneyland is the greatest place on earth

    • @Asher Greenfield what do you have against Disneyland?

  8. Does anyone see a parallel to the movie My Cousin Vinny?

  9. The GOP has decided to rewrite the Constitution to suit their spin. The GOP has no conscience.

    • Harrison Gooch | January 24, 2020 at 9:24 PM | Reply

      @Christine Musselman annnd no reply. You have no respect for the Constitution, you have no respect for the history of human civilization.

    • They have a conscience but it’s for sale !!

      @Harrison Gooch What are you on about? McConnell is sitting on hundreds of bills legally passed by the House, all because he is protecting Trump and doesn’t want the country see him veto bills that are helpful to ensure our democracy and protect our elections. I don’t see how you apparently are Ok with that and that McConnell refused to grant a legally nominated candidate to the Supreme Court. Now, that is the president’s duty. McConnell refused to conduct a hearing, all because the Republicans don’t have the numbers to win many more elections and he wanted to stack the court to favor Republicans while they still could. In light of this, how was my comment disrespecting the Constitution? It seems to me that it is the Republican senators who are disrespecting the Constitution.

  10. Convict and remove.

  11. This Ukraine thing is just a glimpse into how Li’l McThug Donald operates every day.

    • TRUMP learned his Tactics in the ghetto

      @Will Mason Jesus did you know donald trump in the ghetto. When did you meet him and how did he learn his tactics. I can’t believe how many people on here actually know or claim too know donald trump. Surely you all can’t be lying or exaggerating can you?
      I mean if so that’s kinda a lie isn’t or just noise without substance.

    • @I am not a sheep Truthoverlies Do you know Trump…..?… straight ghetto shuck and jive from yo self….. trying to slam the President, for what poor ghetto folks pull ….. every day…..nice try sweet thang…. this from a black man..Trump 2020

      @Will Mason I don’t have a scooby doo what you have just said. You wrote that he learned his tactics in the ghetto. I guess its just a opinion and you are lying. Why are wannabe gangsters so dumb. From a Mexican who don’t like stupid wannabe gangsters Trump 2020

  12. Looks like none of the senators watched processings in the House of Representative. We all watched it! I am glad they got to see it for themselves and they are taking this VERY SERIOUSLY.

    If they fail to hold him accountable, our democracy is gone already.

    • @Brenda Araba Most of us do. Those of us who do not fall for his lies.

    • @Tara Ionescu WOW! Your watching and believing MSM! Your hearing only one side of reality and it is from haters of Trump! What do you expect the truth? You need more sources!

    • @Star_1_Man No, I don’t rely on the lies of media like fox and its very easy to research anything Trump says and see he lies.

    • @Tara Ionescu folk like star, leave us truly baffled!

    • Brother you’ve got it right. If he’s re-elected, you will not be able to contain this mad man and his behaviour will just get worse. He will try to take elections away from the people. He want to follow Putin’s example. Leader for life, God help America.

  14. Polling shows that the vast majority of the people want witnesses and evidence from the WH: spare tRump the boot and feel the boot yourselves!

  15. Julio Gonzalez | January 24, 2020 at 12:50 PM | Reply

    We the people need to hear from the witnesses! Release all transcripts in full!

  16. Remember Bannon said”gonna be a long time to get your country back” . Now is your chance. Never seen so much criminality in an administration.

    • Maybe because you won’t look at past administrations crimes? Maybe the real question is why are all these politicians millionaires?? How’d they get sooo rich? Not one side or the other but all…. 🤷🏻‍♂️

    • @Junkyard Hog Haha.. So your solution is to support a self-serving/morally bankrupt millionaire? That’s rich!!

    • Baz Write he had millions before he took office? How does a career politician have that much money. Regardless of political affiliation. Someone’s paying to play…
      But I get it, just let your anger out and blame everything on the Orange man.

    • Baz Write the annual salary of a US Senator is 174,000, speakers and a few others is 193,00. Yet the senate is a virtual millionaires club.

  17. Hear the witnesses and see the documents and then decide!

    • Laurie Huntley | January 24, 2020 at 8:23 PM | Reply

      Janna Nijland there is no witnesses, the Republicans won’t allow it? Weird?

    • We have heard the witnesses, we have watched and listened to Trump and his lackies. We do not have to be Einstein to know what he is about he is a liar, cheat, conman, manipulater, a blackmailer. He cares about nothing and no one except himself. He is everything you teach your children not to be. Too many witnesses care about their country and the safety of the people thsnk God for that.

    • @Margaret H totally agree

  18. I’m proud that Angus King is one of my senators and embarrassed that Susan Collins is the other one.

    I’ve checked, and out of hte nearly 50 impeachment trials held in the Senate, this is the ONLY one without witnesses being called. Even Clinton took the Stand .

      “It doesnt matter what the Bidens did”

      I dont have to read any further. Read that sentence until you understand why you’re wrong. The entire subject of the impeachment is the name Biden.

    • Harrison Gooch | January 24, 2020 at 8:52 PM | Reply

      Joe Biden is on camera laughing about using his position to influence a foreign government using US “foreign aid” as leverage. So thats not wrong, but investigating it is wrong. You need to screw your head on straight bud.

    • Harrison Gooch | January 24, 2020 at 9:00 PM | Reply

      @SkyGemini when people cant explain something they accuse others of not understanding.

    • @Harrison Gooch No lack of bone density in your skull.

    Who hides witnesses? A guilty person, who has something to hide.
