  1. “Dems are just repeating themselves. Nothing new is being said.” – republicans
    “We refuse to allow any new evidence or witnesses!” – also republicans

      The president doesn’t have to prove innocence, the Democrats have to prove his guilt. That’s just how the law works. Thank God for that.

      The world Is watching aghast at the flagrant cover up being orchestrated right in front of their eyes by a rotten Gop. American Democracy is dead

    • @ Jeffrey heartburns.

      Well, then you and reality should understands that if he continues to upholds “witchcraft” practices of denying any evidences and witnesses allowed in this “kangaroo courtships” alone makes it impossible for a fair trial to even prove, and that the only “hoaxes” are that this draft dodging “junkyard clown” is as guilty as Madeoff, and running faster than Forrest Gumped from ….”
      📑🏃‍♂️💥🐾🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤷‍♂️🏛🇺🇸 The peoples “Truths”❗
      🙄yep😯😳😷well 🤒wtf😆😂🤣

    • Sounds like the argument of a 3rd grader who thinks it’s smarter than it’s parents.

  2. Trump never ever wants to be in any place where his lies count against him.

    • @15k DOW 2022 unbelievable that a scam artist and someone who didn’t pay contractors their bills as contractually agreed to got to be potus.

      You are proof that stupid people will believe anything.

    • Hazel McCloy not all contractors live up to their contracts. What should he have done, paid for their dereliction or breach of contract? You hire the painter for white walls but they provide off white… are you paying them? Don’t be a brainwashed schmuck

      @15k DOW 2022 As soon as someone wins an argument against you, you go straight into attack mode. Typical of a trump* troll!

    Adam Schiff did a GREAT job laying out what really happened .. All the Republicans can do is scream and yell and say YEAH BUT WAS IT REALLY THAT BAD ?

    • actually it’s more like. ‘that’s embellished,’ ‘that’s fabricated,’ ‘your staff met how many times with the whistleblower?’, ‘you passed a new definition to the whistleblower law 2 days before the whistleblower gave notice to the IG, but within the 15 days you knew of him, what say you?’ this can go on, and will. Dems have become something I do not recognize.

    • torr071
      Like the whole whistleblower thing even matters at this point, liar.

    • Elaniago only a dem would say that

    • torr071 which is why I walked away in “09”. I regret voting for O in “08”

    • 15k DOW 2022
      Except, I’m not a democrat. If you actually believed in the rule of law you would agree with me, but I guess you don’t do that in Russia.

  4. Even though it might be legal to lie on the internet I do not advocate outright lying cause i’am an Ethical Atheist & my trolling is done ethically as well.

  5. Why don’t they get Trump to testify on his own behalf? Clinton testified, so did Hillary…why not Trump?

  6. Someone in the crowd yelled: “He who is without sin cast the first stone”. Suddenly, everyone was throwing stones.The blind leading the blind. Take it seriously. Ponder it. It is a paradox without a paradigm. It is a curse of circular logic. The answer to the riddle is… without conscience all that is left is violence. Men with guns will enforce the law until the law is written in the hearts and minds of the people. Until then it will take a monster to slay a monster.

    • exactly why we voted him in? no?

    • @torr071 Trump is a symptom and not the cure. On the day that the law is written in the hearts and minds of people all government will become obsolete. People will govern their own affairs with conscience. Until then violence will back the rule of law. When was the last time you turned yourself in for going through a stop sign?

    • For real

    If the Republican party is ok with what Trump did. Then does that mean that it’s ok for Biden or Bloomberg to ask Russia to expose what Putin and Trump discussed thru phone calls and meetings in exchange for all of the sanctions to be lifted on Russia?

  8. Trump didn’t lie while in Switzerland saying – “The Dems have nothing because we have all the material.”

    The stupidity and boldness of this buffoon is outrageous. For him to literally brag about it on camera is a straight 🖕🏼 YOU America!

    Don’t forget to tell the American people that Trump at his trip in Davis Said he was getting rid of alot of Social Security .WTF”.

  10. On the internet, no one can hear you lie.

    Social Security isn’t an entitlement. Unlike Trump We earned it and paid our taxes.

    Anyone else can tweet on the internet and lie. For trump, they are false official statements, every time he uses POTUS tweet handle.

  13. Ok, so, on some days Ari’s head is more than half grey hair.then, like today… (oh, and he shaved today!)

    • Ari is a graduate of the Bannon School of Good Grooming. First thing he learned was that he only needs to shave once a week unlike the headmaster who never has a clean shave and looks homeless.

  14. Shouldn’t those tangibly lying when addressing the Senate during official procedure, be held in contempt of Congress?

    • What about those who swore on the Bible but had already made their minds up in favor of Trump – shouldn’t they be barred from voting?

  15. No fair trial,no wittinesses,no documents =Cover up!


  17. Well msnbc has certainly proven that. They’ve also proven it’s ok to lie on tv.

  18. Shiff oratory shades of Hamilton!G.O.P. suits should lay shingles on YouTube.Couldn’t get a jaywalker out of a jam.Honesty breeds its own eloquence.

  19. Lol. Is that how MSM makes money haha

  20. Need to pass a law that lying on Twitter is against the law.
