    OOOPSY, HOW WILL TRUMP & HIS ASSLICKER’S TRY TO SPIN THIS ONE, THEY CAN’T?!✌😂😂😂

      Eric Trump: My dad is innocent, this is a deep state coup to overthrow the 2016 election.
      Donald Trump: Eric? Never heard of him, we might be in a picture together but I have pictures with everyone.

    • Alternative Truth

    • Democrats STAR witness in testimony recap – My best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who’s going with the girl who saw TRUMP pass out at 31 Flavors after his call to this Russian like guy over in some African country called Ucrane just the other night I think. For SURE this is m-peach-able. Either way I guess it’s pretty serious.

  2. And just think, Traitor Trump almost got away with his scheme to bribe the President of Ukraine. Mr. Zelensky was just two days away from holding that interview on CNN, and announcing the fabricated investigation that Trump had demanded from him. I bet Trump turned the color of flamin hot cheetos when he had to release that money to Ukraine without getting what he wanted.😠😠

    • @David Lafleche
      Do you understand that Joe Biden was invited by practically the ENTIRE WESTERN WORLD to help clear up Ukraine’s byzantine corruption? Biden was INVITED by Ukraine.
      Do you understand the difference between NATIONAL and INTERNATIONAL POLICY compared to PERSONAL SELF-INTEREST??

      Yes, there is a video clip of Biden boasting about Shokin. Biden was proud of removing a CORRUPT man that Europe, the UN and IMF had ASK Joe Biden to assist with. Biden was helping to usher in democracy to Ukraine.

      Biden never ever asked for his son to be protected from Shokin. In fact, Shokin ignored Burisma for over a year before Joe Biden showed up.

      Five simple facts you people refuse to grasp.
      1.Europe and the US gave MILLIONS of dollars of aid to Ukraine to so that the country could protect themselves against Russia.
      2. Biden in collaboration with Europe, the UN and IMF helped to get Ukraine to clean up its corruption.
      3. The prosecutor that replaced the corrupt Shokin (Kremlin backed hold over) found NO EVIDENCE of wrongdoing on Hunter’s part.
      4. Shokin was corrupt (Kremlin back hold over) and refused to investigate any case (including Burisma) unless he received kickbacks.
      5. The Ukraine parliament overwhelmingly voted to fire Shokin.

      Why do you people not understand that?

      Again, there is a difference between NATIONAL and INTERNATIONAL POLICY and personal self-interest. Biden was working on policy. Trump was working on getting dirt on his political rival. Under OATH, Volker stated how he repeatedly warning Guiliani who was truly corrupting and who was not. Volker stated to Guiliani that Biden was executing USA POLICY and the international community at the time.

      Trumpers, you need to research into why Biden (along with the rest of the Western-allied countries who by the way have given more foreign aid to Ukraine than the USA) wanted that particular prosecutor, Shokin removed. Giuliani tried to get a US visa for Shokin. Curious. The Ukraine has a sordid twenty past years of bitter struggles, threats, war, and CORRUPTION. Do you remember the poisoning of one of Ukraine’s anti-Putin president – Yushchenko? Russia poisoned him with dioxin in order to get rid of him because he was anti-Russian. On top of that, for years the country refused to clean up the corruption in its government. As vice president, Joe Biden was tasked with reducing corruption in Ukraine after Yanukovych⁠—eventually charged with “mass killing of civilians”⁠— exiled himself to Crimea amid threats of civil war. Europe, EU, IMF and the USA were all working together to (under the PRO-WESTERN new president Poroshenko) pressure the Ukraine to clean up corruption. The special prosecutor, Shokin was a major player in the corruption. The Ukraine parliament overwhelmingly voted to fire Shokin.

      Along with the UK, EU, IMF and the UN…Biden was constantly warning the Ukraine government that the special prosecutor, Shokin was dragging his feet on important investigations in turn for alleged bribes. It had nothing to do with his son, Hunter. Shokin was not investigating Hunter ….in fact, Shokin was not investigation anything. After Shokin did RESIGN, the new prosecutor had then investigated the entire company Hunter Biden worked for, found no criminal activity, and closed their investigation. The person Shokin, Biden bragged about getting rid of was corrupt and the UK, EU and the UN were all happy. People in Ukraine thought removing him was the right thing to do.

      Does Trump or his followers understand the history and reputation of the Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin? He was corrupt to the core. There have been many allegations of bribery, extortion, and basic neglect and lack of diligence. The Ukraine people even marched in the streets several times against this man. He was HATED in Ukraine and when he left his office people celebrated.

      EU hails sacking of Ukraine’s prosecutor Viktor Shokin, The Irish Times (29 March 2016)
      https://www.rferl.org/a/why-was-ukraine-top-prosecutor-fired-viktor-shokin/30181445.html

      Remember the Shokin affidavit document every Trumper and Giuliani (pushed by the proven liar John Solomon) rely on to ‘prove’ Biden’s corruption? The supposedly stellar testimony of Shokin that is floating on google that all Trump supporters post a link to? Here is the truth…. any point I made below can easily be verified on google. The Dmitry Firtash document that Giuliani waves around is a statement of Shokin (the corrupt prosecutor) who is one of the engines that encouraged systemic corruption in Ukraine. Firtash is also a person who has heavy ties with Russia and Russian organized crime. He was award exclusive rights to buy gas from Russia (ummmmm and he finalizes a statement against Hunter and his gas company Burisma …sounds fishy). And then the one and only Paul Manafort comes in and fights against Yulia Tymoshenko (Pro-western) who was investigating Firtash. Yulia – she ends up in jail due to Manafort’s efforts. Firtash is UNDER HOUSE ARREST in Austria. Fighting extradition order for corruption, fraud and conspiracy charges. And guess who one of his lawyers is? GIULIANI. The lawyers retained by Firtash are Victoria Toensing and Joseph diGenova (huge Trump supporter on Fox News), according to representatives for Firtash and for the attorneys.

      No, Foreign Policy is not a liberal rag.

    • @David Lafleche
      Why didn’t you complain when Obama allowed Putin to invade Ukraine?

      ALLOWED?

      Oh, do explain.

  3. Trump: “I do not know the man”. Sandy is the delegated straw man sacrificed for the PERFECT call.

    • No, Sandy may be thrown under the bus, but he’s too low on the totem pole to have made the decision.

    • Perfect call. Perfect wall.
      For someone so obsessed with doing everything perfectly, you’d think he’d be better at committing a crime without leaving bread crumbs everywhere. .

      @N N When someone is so used to getting away with things in the PAST, they are naive & presumptious in their future endeavors.

  4. Trump and his fellow GOP sheep will now attack the aid….not the facts-but the person.

    • @dikranovich k Yes, that’s where I am now at homie. Well, _near_ Flevoland, that is. But the politics are so much more sane over here… It actually works relatively fine over here, thank you. US politics is much more interesting to watch, with its insane quantities of liars, crooks, opportunists, nepotists, reli-nuts, gun fanatics, and the bizarre levels of egotism, willful ignorance and the resulting grotesque stupidity and arrogance.

      So yeah, I’m sure I’m better off here, but I DO love to _watch_ the craziest real life soap ever _foistered_ on humanity that, btw, has now completely _delegitimatized_ the gop.
      Trumpists will probably want to have a cup of covfefe ready when it finally dawns on them too how incredibly much damage this administration has done, and how they, as their indispensible supporters, were shamelessly lied to and used by the gop, and how they themselves enabled them cheerfully. Just facts, too.

    • James Champaco
      Here we are 16 hours later and trump himself attacked the witness on the stand live!

    • @catalinacurio Posting a public tweet is not a threat. To be a threat the recipent of it must be aware. She was not aware she had to be told by the Chairman. The women is hated in this region I being Czech. We are conservative and she funded opposition parties thus interference in our elections she openly endorsed LGBT and set up parades for them. We had to complain to the US State Dept and then send our PM direct to talk with Trump about this. You do not like interference yet you do when it involves others. She was hated from Czech to Poland to Hungary to Ukraine due to her forcing gender confusion, open borders, LGBT, etc on the people.

      What facts? No quid pro quo? Uk president said no bribery no blackmail no pressure. No one in uk enven knew about military aid hold. Plus he provided weapons to uk. Obama gave them blankets

    • @Eagle Entertainment nice try but so wrong.

  5. Good Lord this is a huge piece to the puzzle. Rock-a-bye Trumpy the bough is breaking.

  6. Here it comes… The dam is starting to break. Get ready for the deluge.

      @dajzilla “And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?” (Romans 2:3, KJV). Obama lied when he promised, “IF you LIKE your health care plan, you can KEEP your health care plan!” Obama was lying when he said that, and he knew he was lying. “Thou shalt not bear false witness” (9th Commandment). Obama shall answer to the Lord Jesus Christ on Judgment Day (Revelation 21:8, KJV). Even so, come, Lord Jesus! Establish the Kingdom in Jerusalem, and keep the world safe from Democracy!

  7. That’s gonna leave a mark.

  8. Mulvaney is in deep trouble.

    • 100% correct! They need to start throwing more people in jail. I appreciate the process, but when lawlessness is in your face like this, its hard to stay that course! There needs to be an example made out of this administration to deter ANYONE from ever thinking this is remotely possible to happen again!

    • I figured that! B C They don’t need his testimony anyway!

  9. Trump’s narcissistic personality disorder is off the charts. If anyone goes against him they are never trumpers. I say the are patriots.

    • If they are paying any attention to the results of the special elections in April 2018, the Mid Terms, last November and the recent election results in Virginia and Kentucky they would!

  10. You know they’re going to try to discredit everyone coming out

  11. Mr. Sandy thank you for defying a corrupt WH. Thank you for serving your country first. Thank you, just thank you 🙏!

    • He’s got to think about his own life and career, he doesn’t want to get into legal trouble in the future. Same goes for Bolton, Mulvaney anyone that was working in the WH at that time

  12. That’s got to put some grit in the big Orange underpants.

  13. Smart people would do the right thing.

      I was a Never-er, but I now will not vote for any GOP candidate for many years to come. I just switched affiliation from Republican to Democrat. I have always considered myself independent, but primaries require a registration as one or the other. Republicans have shown themselves to be weak and spineless. I always thought it was the Democrats who were that way, but Democrats are not so weak — many of them are still quite spineless though, especially within the old guard.

      What’s truly grotesque is that this notorious dirt on the Bidens is largely imaginary.

      ” largely imaginary.”?
      try totally fictitious

    • Jennifer Alcala those kids in cages were photographs from Obama era. How stupid are you? Screw illegal’s and shithole countries can keep the refugees. Islam is right on women.
