    There’s a boatload of impeachable offenses .
    There are several criminal investigations going on.
    It’s not if but for which crime. Just get it done.

    • What crime?

      The whole Biden story was already investigated.
      It’s not a scandal.
      Biden acted with The full support of the United States and the international community. He got his deal done in one day.
      The orange one withheld military aid from the Ukraine for over a month and then asked them to investigate his already investigated political opponent. Why does he want the Ukraine to investigate his political opponent?

      His intent is to extort the president of the Ukraine to provide dirt on his opponent. The prosecutor that Rudy got his info from is an unreliable source.
      The orange one is spreading lies and misinformation.
      This is what he does.

    • @Power corrupts oh that’s so untrue

      The truth does not come from the white house.
      Only lies and propaganda.

    • Maybe that is the real reason Trump needed to be President to reduce his 10k audits of these in debt businesses that borrow from Rich Russians

  2. Kinda funny how his cult and the gop see nothing wrong in this, flag waving fascists.

    • @Jock Young more “whataboutism”.

      Joe Shaloom n

    • well at least they dont have nuclear weapons so you know at lest we dont have to worry about that lol right….right?… right?!?!

    • About damned time the Dems put up or shut up!  But they will draw out this sham ‘investigation’ as long as they can because they DO NOT WANT SUBPOENA POWER GIVEN TO THE REPUBLICANS.  Once Adam Schiff admitted contact with the Whistleblower he became a potential witness and I’d bet Jim Jordan is salivating at the prospect of putting lying Schiff under oath…

    • Funny how the Republicans want the full transcripts of the Volker hearing released but the Dems refuse to do it lol!

  3. This Orange Thug with over 200 lawyers is going to want a bigly DEAL for himself !!! Just saying ! Coming soon !

    • @Randy Sanders I LOVE the smell of desperation and you positively reek of it!! What’s next? Gonna invoke the “I know you are, but what am I?” defense??

    • @Larry Byrd can you tell us who ordered the Obama Administrations DOJ and FBI to spy on the Trump campaign? I mean you better have the goods to spy on a US Presidential election right? Especially the other party? Mueller said “No Collusion” so we have a huge problem here your media and career politicians aren’t telling you about huh? Weird none of the fake names like yours can answer this question? I guess that’s why AG Barr is on it. We cant trust people like you!

    • @Randy Sanders You’re obviously referring to trumps delusional series of tweets about being spied on with zero proof ever being provided (i.e. spygate)? What I’m wondering is: how long after trump is removed from office will it take before you eat a piece of copper-coated-candy? C’mon, tell us! Inquiring minds want to know!!! 🙂

    • @Larry Byrd Are you even from America? Do the Dems have a call center in Iran or something? You’re a keyboard warrior trollio dude. Come back when you can be a Patriot and stand by your comments with your real name. Don’t use Magic Johnson or Fernando Venezuela either haha

    The GOP is the party of treason and corruption.

    • Marvellous132 | October 5, 2019 at 8:20 AM | Reply

      @SCIL Films Biden was heading a bi-partisan movement four Republicans backed in a committee, on behalf of the IMF, the UN and the EU. They all wanted Shokin gone for NOT investigating hard enough against corruption. The investigation into Burisma began before Hunter Biden worked on the board and continued after Shokin was removed. That Hunter Biden was under investigation for anything is demonstrably false. But let’s not let facts get in the way of a Trump conspiracy theory. Neither Trump, nor you, can name one one law the Bidens have broken. US or Ukrainian.

    • @Dennis Leduc 🤣

    • @Sheree Brandon I’m sorry “Sheree” but you failed to type your entire post in all caps so, naturally, it does not sound very convincing.

      Remember, you need to use all caps start to finish if you want to come across as credible.

    • @Sheree Brandon again, I asked for FACTS, not Trump pundit mouthpieces which regurgitate WH / Republican talking points. No actual investigative reporting. Please do your OWN research, stop the chain of stupidity which proliferates your party. Thank you.

    Yet his daughter got patents by China…..should she be investigated 🤔

    Mitt is not the only republican, for sure. The other repubs are simply scared shittless to move.

  7. Darren Nicholls | October 4, 2019 at 4:13 PM | Reply

    Romney is the conscience of the GOP now? Unbelievable.

  8. “Why would you call the FBI? I don’t think in my life I ever called the FBI”

    Donald J. Trump

  9. What bothers me the most about this whole situation is how complicit the Republicans can be they’ve known the entire time exactly what this man was doing then sat back and allowed it simply because they thought it would put them in a better political position they are steel complicit in his illegal activities and lawlessness they should all be in prison

  10. Trump’s like nailing down a Swamp Creature…. that’s made out of Jello!

  11. When the time comes Trump is going to have to be physically dragged out of the White House.

      @S T23 Could US Marshalls carry this out? There must be someone who can do this otherwise he really will be “above the Law.”

    • William Kallemeyn | October 5, 2019 at 4:13 AM | Reply

      He will be yelling “fake new! its all a hoax! But what about her emails??!!!” while being dragged out of the office

    • That would be awesome to see 😁 hopefully, whoever drag’s him out it’s a Mexican n a black !!!
      And go put him in the cage at the border, and see what happens.?

    • coax him out by laying a trail of cheeseburgers that lead out the WH door and into a courtroom

    • If they need help dragging him out, I’m available and I have arthritis.

  12. Using corrupt governments to discredit our intelligence is a high crime!

  13. Don’t dignify Giuliani with the word “envoy”. He was a bag man.

  14. Stop acting like Mitt Romney is like all saintly! Has he called on the pig to resign? Why not?

  15. “Bill Taylor: As I said on the phone, I think it’s crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign.” Fire the Liar in the White House!

    • Foniks Monkee
      She won the unpopular, illegal votes.

    • jeck jeck
      Come at these first, losers:

      No collusion
      No obstruction
      No Quid Pro Pro

    • @Truth Seeker
      Like I said, delusions from sub humans.

    • There is a response to that which msnbc. Volker responded “you misunderstand the president’s intentions. The president was crystal clear there is no quid pro quo. He wants to make sure President Zelenski abides by the reforms in his country.” WHY DON’T YOU GUYS READ THE TEXTS FOR YOURSELF. THEY PUBLISHED IT

    • @Bklyn Luv
      And your delusions continue. Yawn.

  16. Open season on Ivanka and Jared, go!

  17. “Deeply troubling and wrong” describes Trump & Co. to a tee

  18. Peeling back the onion skins increasingly rotten just throw it out…

  19. He’s selling out the country and you’re letting him! He’ll run down the country before he gets impeached.

    • David Hollenshead | October 4, 2019 at 10:11 PM | Reply

      Trump is facing Prosecution & Civil Forfeiture once he leaves office, 
      so he will burn our Nation before he is willing to leave office…

  20. When has the Republicans have an election without some kind of drama,NEVER!!!
