    I’ve got a solution to this whole mess. Take money out of politics and we won’t be having these idiotic problems.

    I would like to hear some reporter have the guts to ask important informational questions. For example: How many other corrupt governments in the world does the US government give aid to? Cong. Collins, please list them. You don’t know? OK, I will list them for you. (provides the list) How many of these have had their president called by our president for him to express concern and how many have had that aid held up for any length of time? You could start with Egypt, Turkey, and considering the impending indictment of Mr. Netanyahu, Israel, but please go down the list, which, as you see, runs to dozens and tell the American people how many other presidents were called up and pressured. In addition, looking at my list, how many are in a war with the Russian government headed by Pres. Putin, so that giving them military aid would upset Mr. Putin? If you don’t have all this information at your fingertips, I am sure your staff can get it in an hour or two. How about we meet again then? If you do have the answer and the answer is that aid has not been held up to any of them except Ukraine, that none of them is currently in a conflict with the Russian government, then could you please explain the president’s choice of focusing on corruption in Ukraine instead of any of the other governments on the list? Or did he put little pieces of paper into a hat with all the corrupt governments in the world to which the US gov’t sends aid, and Ukraine happened to be on the first slip of paper he pulled out?

      Gnirol Namlerf you’ve nailed the core essential issue with media/journalist coverage of the current madness. An unwillingness, a refusal even, to ask the questions that they (should) know would reveal the underbelly of these “politicians”. Beautifully and well stated! Thank you. Has anyone else been wondering exactly what is preventing them (journalists, the media) from doing the job they’re getting paid for? Oh, yeah. There’s probably a (related) answer for that…

    • I agree completely. Another interesting question that I would get Collins answer to is why the sudden interest in corruption in Ukraine now? Republican had the House 2016-2018, so if Trump were so worried about Ukraine, he would have had an easy time checking them out during that time.

  5. @1:40 – @2:09 Doug fumes outrage
    @2:09 “That came after he said he was at a loss for words”
    Classy BUUUURRNNNN🔥🔥🔥 I see u 🤣🤣😂😂😂😂

  6. “Common courtesy?”
    Let’s here twitler say that….
    Let alone define it.

    • @mickey thompson I understand him fine and he is doing his job spectacularly. that is more than I can say for any politician I can recall in living memory. you are bombarded with misinformation from the leftist media propaganda apparatus that serves as the mouth piece of the DNC elite. I’m a registered democrat who has watched his party swing dramatically left and trump has exposed the corruption we all kind of knew was there the whole time but tolerated. its great. get on board and watch them burn. They are losing and only the media and their half truth deceit is covering it temporarily. I have watched every minute of the mueller hearings and the impeachment hearings to make sure im not wrong. Biden is guilty of enriching his family while in office and holding 6 billion in aid with a 6 hr time window to Ukraine to protect his sons company. I watched the footage. its all out in the public for all to see. Trump should have investigated it and now we see how things lie amongst public sentiment and the median IQ ability to transcend bias and their susceptibility to propaganda indoctrination. and there you are. amongst them running your mouth while having done none of your due diligence. I’m not surprised that you’d only focus on grammar. its all you have in the end just like the democratic stand point. empty words and manipulation of meaning. aka nothing at all.

    • TRUMP THE #TOPTWIZZLER

    • Reply. VINDMAN FAMILY FROM UKRAINE. NO BONESPURS. DRUMPF GRANDFATHER left Germany as a draft Dodger. Now DonaldDrumpf claims #bonespurs for the same war while John McCain was in HanoiHilton. John’s father and grandfather in military as well as his son. AND #TWITTLER CAN PREFER HIS HEROES UNCAPTURED. AND NO REPUBS put him in his place for ANY Reason.

    • Yeah just pull up trumps twitter and it’s filled with “common courtesy” right?

  7. I’m about to hop that flight with the one-way ticket to Mars…

    So the “Turtle” came out of his shell LOL 🤔

  9. IMPEACH AND REMOVE THE WHOLE LOT.

  10. after ranting about the media attention, said “I’ll see ya all tomorrow.”

    • And your point is…people are getting disgusted with this whole impeachment on all channels bs! We pay our cable bill every month, we should be able to watch what we want. Nadler has a vendetta from years ago, Schiff loves attention and Nancy Pelosi needs rehab.

    • Cynthia M Stop whining. There’s a simple solution, read a book and stop watching TV!

    • @Cynthia M – says someone from the party that did 8 separate investigations into the SAME thing and got zero indictments and zero evidence of wrong doing.

    • “this committee has lost all relevance” but he wouldn’t miss it for the world xD

    • @Cynthia M oh look, a republican using the archaic practice of distraction to feel like a big girl.

  11. Abraham Lincoln said: We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the constitution but to overthrow the men who would pervert the Constitution.

      SpecialSP what does the past and party names have to do with now? And who says you’re a democrat for supporting evidence to protect our constitution

    • @vicksss ….I’m sorry it is hard to read what you typed, please type proper English. I know I am going to get attacked for saying it, but it is tough reading improper english. If you don’t speak english then sorry.

    • Marvin Scholten | December 13, 2019 at 9:14 PM | Reply

      @vicksss what is wrong with looking into corruption. Oh that’s right DEMOCRATS don’t want to win the PRESIDENCY. They will have an unelectable candidate. If they would have done things right. They would have said we want a investigation. If there nothing good. If there is we will deal with it.

    • @Marvin Scholten i DO NOT SEE ANYTHING WRONG LOOKING INTO CORRUPTION ESPECIALLY IF THE INTENTION IS TO DO SO.. AS A COUNTRY WE HAVE LAWS TO ABIDE BY. DO NOT EXPECT TO HAVE A FAIR TRIAL IF YOUR RIGHTS ARE NOT PROTECTED UNDER THOSE LAWS. THE PRESIDENT MANNER OF ASKING FOR AN ANNOUNCEMENT ( NOT AN INVESTIGATION) WAS WRONG . HE DID NOT FOLLOW PROTOCOL NOR PROCEDURES WHEN INITIATING INVESTIGATIONS IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY. I BE THE FIRST ONE DEFENDING HIM HERE IF HE WOULD HAVE DONE THE THINGS PROPERLY..I DO NOT CARE WHO IS RUNNING IN THE ELECTIONS. IF A CRIME HAVE BEEN COMMITTED AN INVESTIGATION SHOULD BE ORDERED, THE DEMOCRATS ARE NOT ARGUING THE “INVESTIGATION THEY ARE ARGUING THE MANNER IN WHICH THE PRESIDENT PROCEEDED. ESPECIALLY WHEN DEALING WITH MATTERS OF A US CITIZENS IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES… YOU ARE ATTACKING THE FBI FOR GOING ON TELEVISION AND MAKING ACCUSATIONS WITHOUT PROVE , BUT YOU DEFEND TRUMP BECAUSE HE WANTED THE PRESIDENT OF ANOTHER COUNTRY AND WITHOUT INVESTIGATION AND DUE PROCESS MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT ON JOE BIDEN. DO YOU SEE WHAT A BUNCH OF HYPOCRITES YOU ALL ARE?

    • @Chill Cheque iS THAT ALL YOU CAN COME WITH? i’M THE ONLY ONE HERE WRITING IMPROPER ENGLISH? WHY DON’T YOU SUE ME FOR THE CRIME OF NOT WRITING ENGLISH PROPERLY? i GUESS THAT I’M NEVER GOING TO OBTAIN A RESPONSE TO MY QUESTIONS.. MY ENGLISH IS SO BAD THAT THERE IS NOT A SINGLE REPUBLICAN THAT CAN READ IT..NEITHER UNDERSTAND IT..YEP..i WILL COUNT IT AS EXCUSE NUMBER 5 ( FIVE) i SPEAK INDIAN OR PROBABLY CHINESE. TO THEM I’AM UNDERSTOOD SOMETIMES, WHEN IS CONVENIENT..NOT WHEN I ASK QUESTIONS BECAUSE I WRITE IN CHINESE OR ANY OTHER LANGUAGE UNKNOWN TO THE REPUBLICAN BRAINS. RIGHT?

  12. it’s funny he says it’s all about the TV and cameras… as he’s railing and pandering to the TV and Cameras…

      @Donna Martins, what does ‘illagement’ mean, at the risk of appearing ‘ignorant’? I’ve never encountered that word before.

    • You’re full of crap. It all about games. That’s what the republicans have made of the political process. They aren’t working for the American people or decency. They’re about demigods and creating an “emperor”. The biggest fear the founding fathers had, is what they want to be the new normal. We’ll be N.korea soon if they have their way. How dumb can people be? Don’t you see the assault on liberty and democracy by these republicans? How stupid can this population be? So you want to be Nazi Germany all over again? Maybe Japanese under the rule of the emperor…

    • @Allen C. Democratic party today is like Nazi, Germany. The spirit always speaks its name.

    • You REALLY don’t see the difference between giving a press conference and breaking the rules of congress so that your vote will happen when the most people will see it? Therein lies the whole problem — people do not learn to think clearly. You have created a straw man to make your argument — an underhanded tactic. Rep. Collins never said there was anything wrong with cameras. He said that breaking the voting rules in congress, in order to get “prime time” TV coverage is unheard of and unacceptable.

  13. Mitch Mc Connell is the enemy within.

  14. Starhawk Prime | December 13, 2019 at 9:36 AM | Reply

    Collins needs a big plate of cheese to go with all that whine!

  15. Brief translation of Rep. Collins’ remarks after the adjournment: “Waaaaaah!”

    • @ATV HogHunter good so you support abortion?

    • @Andrew Mastin It is funny because those ”so-called” witnesses haven’t witnessed anything. On which base would you impeach the president other than you hate him. Adam Schiff who straight up created a whistleblower, and went as far as getting phone transcripts from other people and still doesn’t have any proof. Or Joe Biden who kept financial aid from Ukrain until they fire the detective who was investigating Barisma corporation.

  16. Little Mitchy tried to smile toward the end there. Reptiles and cockroaches can’t smile, he should know that by now. The machinations of the United States Government will not truly come out of the dark ages until Mitchy is gone. A sad truth of life, old men can’t go on forever.

  17. “When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.”

    Benjamin Franklin

    • Got Glock? Even if this was true, which it isn’t, that isn’t any reason to accept it as appropriate behavior. Were any of you Trumpsters taught right from wrong and to respect laws and right behavior?

    • Nathaniel Hellerstein | December 13, 2019 at 4:38 PM | Reply

      Which people? The 1%.

    • When “people” find that they can be voted to help themselves to money, that will herald the end of the republic.

    • Got Glock? It is a few fraudsters/crooks who have made it a comfortable practice, a practice benefitting the ultra wealthy and since they are considered “persons”, corporations and themselves. So comfortable, “Washington” operates on behalf of, prioritizing and benefitting these sole two entities as their subsidiary. This has become “Washington’s” status quo. Can’t think of it off the top of my mind but I believe there is another similar quote about money and the fear of large amounts influencing and affecting the republic negatively, I will find it and get back to you.

  18. I have a solution …act like a adult and when you lose try to win the next …..stop freaking out over every little thing.

    Love how the “ranking member” calls out the Majority for playing “games.” Mr Kettle, meet Mr Pot.

  20. “Its all about games.”
    Didn’t you clowns storm a closed door deposition recently and ordered Dominos pizza??
