    Make them testify.

    • Yes. Make new opinions and twist them to bring them in on the loop. Sooner or later people will believe our crap. I don’t know why they are so hard to lie to?

      @TJ Abston — Absolutely! Anyone who ignored Congress’ subpoenas and refused to testify committed a punishable crime and MUST be send to jail! They obstructed justice to be done! Bolton, Pompeo, Mulvaney, Giuliani and others committed a crime defying Congress and they must NOT be seen,that they could do it with impunity! Congress MUST demonstrate its power and authority and send them all to jail. Congress’ power must be demonstrated to the whole world, who is laughing in disbelieve at the impotence of American Congress, challenged by that corrupted gang of crooks, supported and defended by equally corrupted Republican Senators.

    • @yllbardh it’s always important to voice yourself

  2. ..then they have nothing to fear in their testimon.and they must!

  3. Trump “I hire only the best people”
    Sure where is Cohen Stone Manafort Flynn Gates all in jail or convicted felons. 😁

  4. So much winning, you’re going to be tired of winning.

    Sorry, i meant corruption and not winning.

  5. The hits just keep on coming

  6. “Simply allow him to override congress on this issue”
    Then it’s onto the next issue, and the next, until they’ve thoroughly installed a legit dictator.

    • @William Mccaskill OMG your a fcking hick poedunk hillbilly should have figured.

      Anamaria Hildebrand. If you’re speaking of me saying that Trump isn’t impeached, I’m saying that because Pelosi is holding the articles of impeachment. The senate has the important and final decision. My sources are the laws.

  7. I hope the cops rough them up when they arrest them. Like they want to happen to citizens.

    • I just want to see the humiliation of orange jump suit, handcuffs and a prison haircut. His cultists NEED to see him like that. The rest of us will just enjoy!

    • @Ray Lovelace you just said you are the one who wants to see him like that. Your hate is showing. Cult huh?….

    • @MrDiscostu4u Interesting you pick the LEAST violent response to whine, “Hater” at. Your projection’s showing.

  8. Its very simple , Trump is a piece of $h¡T and society need to flush him down a toilet .

  9. Republicans how can you NOT see this?  I guess Republicans really like a Dictator.

    “They were all in the loop”

    • @WineScrounger Frump wants to go back to the olden ways, he is asking for this.

      @Tajai Calip — Absque Religione is absolutely right, and if you don’t know “who are they”, then you have plenty to improve on your basic reasoning ability. (And the rest of your comment isa childish efforts of a simpleton who is trying to project an image of a “wise man”).

    • Shadow Spike as a species, I think we are too old for this superstitious tripe. If all the churches burned down tomorrow I wouldn’t be unhappy.

    Trump is unfit to lead, period.

    • From the best president to the absolute worst! This is one man doing so much damage. We deserve better than this.

    • @Simkitty 2 Obama was good Orator did nothing for the US!. He is making million talking about the good ol days while he left the blacks in Virtual chains. Trump 2020 MAGA to KAG

    • We might as well have Putin in charge. Again this week the two talk and its reported by the Kremlin not the WH.

    • @TheMaryam1891 Your Stiil Stuck with Fukinn Putiin stale and outdated! Think out of the boc
      MSNBC + NY Time = Fake News ++
      Aid released within deadline soon as Ukrainian Parliament put up Anti Corruption measures. No Free Lunch for Ukraine!
      Let’s Not forget “us” “Our Country” “call AG”
      Corruption Get TO Biden(s) one of the causes for this whole charade!
      Trump 2020 MAGA to KAG!

  12. Treason is the reason for this season.

  13. This is why witnesses need to be heard. The more they delay, the more info comes out. Keep delaying, more and more info will come to light.

    • @karin backstrom you said in one of your rants that the American Democrats educate the poor and it’s in the self interests of poor Americans to vote for them.
      In the article it talks about 13 Baltimore high schools where not one student is proficient in math.

    • @karin backstrom well you say everyone’s laughing at him, America is doomed in the long term but for now they are doing better than any other western nation. here in Canada we lost 73,000 jobs over the last 2 month’s before Christmas , while America gained 268,000 in just one month

    Trump misusing and exploiting other people’s money for his own benefit.

    Or as he calls it: Tuesday.

    • Ever wonder how Obama tossed BILLIONS of our tax paid dollars to aid corrupt nations with ZERO going to military aid. And somehow , those nations created sludge funds and businesses that SOMEHOW involve quite a few Dems bank accts ? ….theres a good reason the Dems want Trump out !! It was HOPEFULLY to be before he could find the evidence to drain the swamp. But….its too late….we’re all going to see what happens next. Forget all the news channels….lets see what OUR govt does to those corrupt. Im hoping its justice for all. Dems , Reps or Ind…..corrupt ? Pay the price.

    • @Knc Delivery No, they didn’t. The Ukrainian president said he didn’t feel pressured to do the Biden investigation, but then cancelled the scheduled public announcement as soon as Trump was caught and the pressure was off. At least get the lies straight.

    • @Crystal Giddens Since trump is such a little coward and has tried to block all the witnesses with first hand knowledge, Hearsay evidence is allowed. See “exclusions to hearsay evidentiary rules.”

    • @rxr in az , who told u that ?

    Donnie is done on this side, turn him over.

  16. Crooked businessman chose his own gain in wealth over the people he is supposed to lead and serve, who could have seen this coming?

  17. No get out of jail cards should be given to him cause he is a crook

  18. And this is what happens when you put a conman in the WH and surround him by spineless Republicans.

      Actually it was the people of both parties that put Trump into office.
      I doubt if there was a democrat worth a darn.Trump would not have won. It would have been business as usual.

      Problem being the democrats were bigger crooks than Trump.

      I do not think Trump has a chance at competing with the Dems that ran in 2016

      What got Trump elected was people tired of the establishment.

    • Spot on Brother and unlimited money to spend….OURS!!!

    • You are the only racist here buddy

  19. so far ‘under oath’ has just meant they lie about everything, until it’s proven they lied.

  20. The aid only got released hen Congress found out it was being held and the information was about to become public
