    All that Gym Jordan is doing is setting up another SNL cold open.

    • @Francis Chambless You are very good at making false assumptions. I rarely watch CNN and rather get my news from independent sources. I don’t even particularly like Biden, but the accusation made by Trump that Biden pushed the prosecutor out to help his son is ludicrous. The investigation into Burisma lay dormant the entire time he was prosecutor and only was taken up by his successor. To use the power of the presidency to push other countries to investigate your political opponent is against the law. Do you think it is only a crime when the crime was expressly stated before the crime? If you had a mob boss talk to his people and say “I want you to take out some money out of the bank. You can use those”, while pointing at some guns, do you think that makes it legal? The facts are, the Ukraine aid was withheld, Trump asked for an investigations into the Biden’s (even on national TV), the aid was only released after the whistleblower complaint, Trumps personal lawyer Giuliani was involved in trying to get the Ukrainians to investigate the Bidens. Trump has lied multiple times now about the whole thing, including saying that he released the full transcript even when it was only a summery and smeared all witnesses in the impeachment, even if he was the one putting them in charge.
      I could go on, but I think you get the gist.
      In case of the Bidens there is a strong case that Nepotism laws should be reviewed, but that is also true for most other politicians and Trump.
      Why are you Ok, or even in favor of an investigation into the Bidens, but at the same time ascribe only the best intentions to Trump?

      @carpe diem lol dude you just miss everything even when you’re so close to what should easily be recognized. Was Joe Biden the overseer of Ukraine during said time his son was working for Burisma? Sure the hell was. Was he on video bragging about firing said prosecutor at time his son worked there, and was there an investigation pending from said prosecutor? Yep….. okay… Ambassador at that time to Ukraine admits that even Obama was briefed on this but does nothing about it, this is also a fact, and said Ambassador doesn’t pursue it. There’s loads of unsubstantiated claims that the prosecutor was corrupt and my very well have been, but have you gotten any information on that corruption? We do know Hunter had zero job requirements for a position of that sort, and I’ll bet you can trace money our state department gave to Ukraine finding its way into his pockets if you have the right kind of investigators that aren’t deep state agents we keep seeing.
      Yeah, you have to be blind or just stupid to stay Trump is corrupt for looking into corruption, particularly in a country that had a hand in providing garbage used in CIA and FBI (as well as foreign assisted) dirt gathering/spying on him prior…. There’s a SLEW of factual evidence with a host of corrupt hands involved here into state officials and elected reps abusing their positions. Democrats are dirty and the new media is dirtier for covering for them, all the while they give themselves a nice fat profit cut. Trump stands in the way of this continuing.
      Way too much to be jabbering in stupid youtube conversations. Dan Bongino, Mark Levin, are better at laying it all down.

    • @Francis Chambless You go wrong at “was there an investigation pending from said prosecutor?” The factual answer is actually: Not really the investigation lay dormant the entire time he was prosecutor and was only reopened after he got sacked. If you can’t recognize how time works, I can’t see any benifit in continuing this. Bye.

    • @carpe diem if you listen to the full hearing you will see that non of them got anything. It’s what they heard from someone who heard from someone else. Then it boils down to my their opinions of the matter.
      It ain’t going anywhere with this.

    He doesn’t see a lot of things …. like maybe kids being molested .

    • @sw33tlou Hahahaha, sweetie, as you can see , it’s not looking well for you. Your trying to swim , but your drowning . So sad . You really need mental health treatment my dear.

    • @Ken Shaw My hat off to you. You said it well. The idiot, is into conspiracies from the right wing . So sad .

    • @sw33tlou I guess you were a regular at comet pizza, because you know so much about it. Did you ever come forward to share all this info with reporters? I mean, they must have written articles about it right? all your grandiose claims of providing evidence are vacuous.

      There is no god.

    • Or Democrats molesting the constitution of the United States of America………

  3. Aah the “But did he died tho?” Defense

  4. “They got what they wanted!” (after we got caught hehe…)

  5. Jim is talking in circles LOL America is a mess hahaha

    Republicans’ new defense: After getting caught, Trump released the aid and claimed that he is innocent. This proves beyond all doubt thst he is innocent.

  7. Trump called Sondland and said “I Want Nothing!” *after* the jig was up. It’s basically screaming “I Didn’t Do It!” when the cops burst into the hideout as you’re counting the money from the bank heist.

    • Also telling him he needs to do the right thing. Indicates that he knows that what he was previously telling him to do was the wrong thing. So his excuse that he’s a moron and didn’t know it’s a crime doesn’t fly either

    • KesselRunner606 so right. He said after caught.

  8. Sondland is looking at Jimmy like he’s a complete joke of a man.

  9. That guy is going to give himself a stroke if he doesn’t simmer down. Damn.

    • I hope it is before we have Medicare for all.

      Gym is one of those people who beleive talking really loud and acting outraged works to bolster their arguments. It’s all tactics.

    • The people who speak the loudest have the least to say.

    • @Richard Jennings he’s also clearly a bit stupid. Doesn’t belong on the intelligence committee (nor does Nunes by any stretch of the imagination), but he was specifically brought to these hearings BY Nunes to BE his ‘attack dog’. He isn’t a member. I frankly think Adam Schiff should toss his azz out for continuing to harass the other witness and refusing to stop after being gaveled time after time. Such an obnoxious bastard.

    • Promise?

  10. The Watergate burglars were caught too. That didn’t make it not a crime.

    • @The Jason you spelt their wrong

    • @Michael Tuffin If that is your only argument you have lost the war. Time for meatloaf. Your mother is screaming for you to come out of her basement. Enjoy. Use lots of ketchup it is %60 oatmeal… She is feeding you off her social security.

    • @The Jason why dont you ask me some more questions, im not gunna waste my time with you dum dum. How many hands do you jerk trump off with?? So you know calculus? Have you ever even been to europe? Thats what i thought

    • @The Jason You do know citing or claiming that there will be a civil war over a guy who has been a crook for over 4 decades, where there is no defined lines (seriously, how are you going to know who to shoot, psycho), is just plain stupid.

      My grandfather could school YOU, boy, on how your idol there (that’s the appropriate spelling, by the way) destroyed lives and financially ruined 1000s of hard working Americans who did work for him and he did not pay them.

  11. Jordan should take his overdramatic act out on the road. His flare for being loud & boisterous isn’t fooling anyone but the Trump💩terds.

  12. “Gym” Jordan talks so much and says nothing.

  13. Sondland’s look: “Do I really have to put up with this BS?”

  14. The “I want nothing” call came coincidentally the day the whistleblower”s alert broke.

    • A week later, wasn’t it?

    • @Nikki Lane Where exactly in the transcript is this? I’ve read it and aid wasn’t mentioned. There is no quid pro quo in the transcript. They didn’t even know that the aid was being withheld until the Politico article. The Ambassador testified that it was his “presumption” that the aid was conditional. Seriously? “Nudge, nudge, wink, wink” is evidence now?

    • @JohnJ469 ok, I’m gonna say agree to disagree on this one, because their has been so much evidence brought forward during the impeachment hearings supporting that this was what trump wanted, that I don’t really see where you’re comjng from on this. But everyone is entitled to their opinion, I just don’t happen to agree with you.

      @Cala You do understand how bribery works, right? Quid Pro Quo is a form of bribery and is defined as such legally. Do you understand that it is illegal and against the constitution for the President of the US to bribe a foreign leader for personal favours. I.E: “if you want your Javalins, you must do me a favour”.

      If you offer a judge money to get your kid out of jail and he flat our turns you down and reports you to police for trying, you are still arrested for bribery, even if the “deal” didn’t occur. You do not have to give the judge the money, you only have to offer it to him.

      Do try to keep up. REPUBLICANS: a Quid Pro Quo is a bribe (both literally (as in the meaning of the words) and under the law), attempted bribery is illegal. This argument is so thin it can still fit in it’s prom dress from 40 years ago.

      For reference, this is from Cornell Law ( https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/bribery): “Bribery constitutes a crime and both the offeror and the recipient can be criminally charged. Proof of bribery requires demonstrating a “quid pro quo” relationship in which the recipient directly alters behavior in exchange for the gift.  Attempts to bribe exist at common law and under the Model Penal Code, and often, the punishment for attempted bribery and completed bribery are identical. Solicitation of a bribe also constitutes a crime and is completed regardless of whether the solicitation results in the receipt of a valuable gift” …The more you know

    • @Cala They got caught is what happened.

    All I can see is Bill Hader yelling, “I’M ABOUT TO POP OFF” 😂😂😂😂

  17. Jordon is embarrassing himself beyond belief! He just looks and sounds like a clown!

  18. Gym Jordan isn’t also an enabler but he’s a comedian also.

  19. “If the facts are against you, argue the law. If the law is against you, argue the facts. If the law and the facts are against you, pound the table and yell like hell”
    ― Carl Sandburg

    Jordan is counting everything on yelling like hell.

  20. Jim Jordan is an embarrassment to the human race.
