  1. I never imagined that we would have a cult leader with Jim Baker’s hair and Tammy Faye’s makeup in the oval office.

    • He’s MORE of a political version of Jim Jones but with MORE followers.

    • @Bunkiebe Your father is a true American hero, unlike bone-spurs…

    • @Biggus Dickus Did you know that the Evangelicals voted for tRump because they think he is “an evil king doing God’s bidding”?
      They think he will start WW III, which will turn into the rapture, getting all of them instantly into Heaven (no waiting).
      The Evangelicals are, quite literally trying to get us all killed.
      Their selfish desire for immortal happiness has driven them to try to commit suicide, for the entire human race.
      Kool Aid anyone?

    • Trump’s HAIR and Kellyann Conway’s MAKE UP

  2. So republicans. You want people with first hand knowledge to testify?
    Well, maybe you should tell t’rump to stop blocking them all from doing so!
    What are you afraid of, eh? 🤔

    • We saw 2 of them yesterday – the Dems better go back to Mueller.

    • Roald Shakleton | November 20, 2019 at 9:39 AM | Reply

      Kurt Volker and Tim Morrison were witnesses for the Republican side. Did not go according to plan. They were better witnesses for the Democrats.

    • James Holbrook | November 21, 2019 at 4:08 AM | Reply

      The only reason Mueller did not indict Trump is because he was told not to. This is why he said the next step is to be taken by Congress. And now it is happening.

      Furthermore, the Mueller investigation was never finished! No investigation is done until you speak directly to all main suspects in an interview. But Donald Trump refused, or more correctly, his lawyers refused to allow it because they said if he did Trump will go to jail!

      I would love to bring Mueller back and add all the other charges to the impeachment hearings, but we don’t need to anymore. And the current crimes can be more easily traced back to where it belongs: in Donald Trump‘s hands!

      So mock past efforts at justice if you wish, but you merely mock your own credibility.

      Al Capone used to Mock justice continuously, because he had no respect for police or for justice. But those who are innocent do not mock. They prove their innocence and show respect, settling into a lifetime of working as a part of society, rather than apart from society!

      So show some respect!

    • @James Holbrook Who told Mueller NOT to charge Trump? In the attached video, Mueller CLEARLY explains why he didn’t charge Trump.

  3. So…should I believe Ambassador Bill Taylor, a West Point grad, and Vietnam veteran who has served this country honorably his entire adult life, and Lt.Col. Vindman, a combat veteran of Iraq, and a purple heart recipient, OR… should I believe a draft dodging pathological liar who brags about falling in love with dictators and tyrants? Hmmmmm😞

    • @xjaskix #Impeachtrump 👿

    • And here I’m preying for Trump to go to Prison

    • @Jeffrey Hagelin I know , Trumpo is starving The poor In USA

    • Trump has been a liar his whole life, we know that. The concern here is what makes these republicans go so far to try defend this kind of treason and crime against fellow americans!?!?! I am not saying every republican is corrupt, but there certainly seems to be many here. We know that Trump is controlled by money from europe and russia. What do we think Trump uses to control people in the republican party?? Money ofc.

      Oh Dave,
      You sound just like one of the I-didn’t-hear-anything-or-know-anything-other-than-what-Schiff-told-me-to-say witnesses.

      Does this mean we can’t be friends?

      .Today’s news you won’t get in the msm:
      “While the fake news media are trying to convince you that Trump investigating the obvious and blatant corruption of the Biden family in Ukraine is a crime, one of their witnesses declared that Obama danced to Putin’s tune.

      Fiona Hill testified that Obama refused to give military aid to Ukraine despite the fact that the “interagency” — the unelected wonks like Vindman who think they not Trump should run foreign policy — said that the U.S. should provide weapons to Ukraine to defend themselves against the Russian invasion.

      Hill testified that Obama refused to provide lethal aid to Ukraine so as to not upset Putin.

      That’s pretty clear evidence that Obama, not Trump, was in Putin’s pocket.”

  5. I also find it interesting that the short-term spending bill they talk about around the 8:25 mark was almost completely split along party lines, as if the Republicans want to use the threat of a government shutdown as a weapon, AGAIN, for political gain, regardless of what it does to the American people and the world at large.

  6. Did anyone not understand why we wanted Kremlin Don impeached on his first day office? Anyone?
    Kremlin Don is running an international crime syndicate from the White House at Putin’s direction.
    It’s the only appropriate response.

  7. There is no safe exit for Pompeo. His political career is over after he’s done bowing and scraping to Fuhrer Trump. He was a sham as an officer and he’s a sham as a politician. Maybe he should just go back to being a lawyer? I mean he’s not very good at lying, despite his chosen profession after leaving the military.

    • That guy —- he’s the guy some CIA agents said, tongue in cheekly, they needed to “watch” when he was put in charge of the CIA, before he went to the State Dept. —- and Stephen Miller are quintessential White Militia minded knuckledraggers; they epitomize Trumpists: rude, vulgar, powerful, narcissistic White males who think the universe revolves around them…

      @Frank Bowden
      U.S. ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland testifies in kangaroo court Congress’s impeachment hearing that he “presumed” a quid pro quo of American aid in return for an investigation of the Bidens’ activities in Ukraine. No one told him there was such a quid pro quo, and President Trump specifically told him there was none.

      Sondland’s testimony tidily sums up the entire case and all the animus against Donald Trump, going back to before his election: it’s all based on presumption. Schiff presumes that he could find the needle of quid in the haystack of pro quo. The Deep State presumes that all its cocksure liars, traitors, sell-swords, and Strzoks can hamstring Trump’s project of Making America Great Again.

      Going back farther, there’s Mueller’s presumption that his murder of hate-Trump crows could find something to pin on the president. Pelosi’s presumption that she could push Trump around. The media’s presumption that it could hound Trump from office. Hillary’s presumption that she was entitled to the presidency thought tacky America was beneath her. The Left’s presumption that Trump is an illegitimate president just because they say so.

      All this presumption derives from arrogance. The Left has been so sure of its superiority that its minions sally forth into battle with incomplete preparation.


    • Hunter’s Nosecandy
      It’s accepted that Don withheld $$$ aid and a meeting with Ukraine’s president until Zelensky agreed to announce an investigation into his political rival. It’s out in the open. So the GOP is now saying, “So what?” Not much of a defense.
      I’m not surprised that the POS in the White House stooped so low, but I am a little surprised that ordinary citizens don’t care.

    • @Frank Bowden
      No it is not accepted. The thing you are frightened of is Hunter. You should be. The stink will soon waft its way up to the Senate where the truth will be laid bare.
      The truth? Obama withheld military aid until Russia had already invaded and taken real estate. Fiona Hill expressed this. What did she call Obama? The real Putin’s puppet.

      The Prez of Ukraine stated that there was no pressure, no quid pro quo. Oh, I forgot. That’s passe’.
      Now it’s bribery. When that scam fails what will be the next democrat scam?

      I watch the hearings. I am shocked but not surprised at how the msm totally lies about what happens therein.
      Jordan can break down a witness and get the truth and the msm will declare Jordan depressed and defeated.
      Soon Trump will get his Senate hearing. In fact he is demanding it. There your heroes cannot rig the jury.
      You will not be happy.

    Damn…a witness testifying against the president has to go into witness protection? 🤔 What in the world….

    • that tells you what kind of president we have nowadays.

      that’s a binary choice: either the Constitution or the so-called president.

    • Honestly, it’s just a matter of time before someone releases a video of Trump trying to hire a hitman or something. THEN MAYBE the Trumplicans will finally realize this is NOT GERMANY in 1932/33, but the United States of America, and so they don’t get the extra 13 years of power before having to go into hiding.

      Just get out now. Make a new party if you must.

      KILLAWATTS 804…….. he would be an Edi Amin if he gets his dream job of Dictator of America. But someone’s allowing this. Thank goodness for Schiff an Pelosi.

  10. Russia benefited the most from withholding aid to Ukraine because they are at war with Ukraine.

    • @Richard Barber That’s them – The missiles Trump sent vs the blankets Obama sent

    • Saltponds239
      Hey stupid I served in the US Army for over 18 years my first duty was commo in a field artillery unit you puts, 8” howitzers , Lance Missile systems and MRLS, skud busters, and the latter half in Transportation sityoazzdown.

    • @isiah waller At war with Russia? So where was all the support when Russia actually INVADED Ukraine? Or the thousands who were killed up and until Trump was elected?

      I wore a uniform for 25 years. I am not as smart as you but I knew it was a court-martial offense to go outside the chain of command. You may not like the orders but you carry them out to the best of your ability.

      Perhaps you’re new school Army? Old school would never do that.

    • Saltponds239
      Going outside the chain of command is not a court martial offense you sound like you don’t know what you are talking about. It’s also against the code of military justice to issue or follow a stupid order. I doubt ever served in any branch, Boy Scouts or ROTC don’t count.

    • @isiah waller Perjury and “Conduct unbecoming an Officer” is. So you don’t seem to know you’re talking about. During the hearing, he was wearing his uniform during testimony.

      As for a “stupid” order comment, who decides whether an order is “stupid” or not?

      I can see it now, a whole squad of solders telling their Captain, his order is stupid because he told them to muster up at 0430 hours for drills and they refuse to do it because its too cold outside. Oh yea, you must be new school military.

      How about Cub Scouts

    • Randall Rockwood amen to THAT lies have wing the truth has feet it Will stay the same lies keep changing TRUMP is a lair extraordinaire

    • I don’t think that’s true. People still believe George W Bush went to war with Iraq “because they attacked us” and “for weapons of mass destruction” – both patently untrue. Just as the 36% numbnuts who believe Dumbo Donald is a good businessman, leader and person, will ALWAYS believe that until their deaths (which can’t come quick enough).

    • Some would say it’s better to live a year as a lion, than a century as a dirty rat.
      Trump would probably respond “Ya, but who ever heard of a rat-skin rug…”?

      @Jon Dunmore Your point well taken. However, the lie was invading Iraq under false pretenses, the truth came out finally as we know it today.

  12. I think they should move him and his family and protect them, because of these trumpsters who think tRump is the Gospel of what America is. I pray that they are safe.

    “It’s a scam, it’s a big scam” well I guess the Tumpanzee is the expert on scams.

  14. Trump: “It’s a scam, folks.” So he openly admits it. Why is he still in office?

  15. If anything happens to vindman himself and families, traitor trumpanzee, and GOP are responsible for it.. lock them up

  16. WildwoodClaire1 | November 20, 2019 at 6:50 AM | Reply

    The Republican hyaenas are desperate to persecute the whistleblower and distract from the mountain of evidence that validates everything the whistleblower alleged.

  17. Notice how Trump says his call was “perfect,” not “innocent.”

    Trump’s words unwittingly reveal his mindset. Trump was not interested in making an “innocent” call or even suggesting that he made he an “innocent” call.

    Trump has been boasting instead that he was purposely trying to walk the fine line between asking for a “favor” and “extortion.”

    He crossed it, “though.” That one word, “though,” put a condition for releasing the military aid.

    All of the testimony unveils the plot that was hatched with that one word which turned Trump’s call from “perfect” to “extortion.”

    • Tessa Veldhorst | November 21, 2019 at 4:31 AM | Reply

      He witheld the aid before that call, so it doesn’t matter how he phrased it or said ‘though’: The aid was witheld and to release it Ukraine needed to do something for Trump (not the US) and Giuliani was trying to make it happen, along with several US officials. The call is actually not the core of this matter, its just the catalyst for the investigation, the actual extortion scheme is much bigger.

    • Tessa Veldhorst Actually, the call is at the core because it puts Trump at the center. Otherwise, Trump and his supporters would claim Giuliani and/or others were acting on their own volition.

      The Republicans will still claim it as they are throwing everything hoping it will stick.

  18. Putin’s goal has been achieved. Weaken America and terrorize Europe.

    I think it’s appauling to sit and watch a highly decorated and no doubt loyal solder being disrespected by white nationalist who have no loyalty to this country.

  20. Trump had a deep fear of losing his office.
    The Whistleblower does not and must not tell his or her name and address.
