  1. With what happened to Roger Stone, these knuckle heads who were for covering for Drumpf, have realized the reality of going to jail for lying is real. I foresee more turn coats coming out of the cracks!

    • You’d think they would have figured that out already after Michael Flynn, Michael Cohen, and Paul Manafort. But these folks apparently aren’t the sharpest tacks in the box.

    • BryanM61
      Right, like, “It would never happen to me, because Trump likes ME!” 🙄 Trump is a horrible person, which is worse because he thinks he isn’t.

    • GUILTY: Michael Flynn, Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Michael Cohen, George Papadopoulos​: NEXT UP: Giuliani, THE BEST PEOPLE

    • John Gault 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  2. Eugene Robinson is a fantastic choice for a media perspective. He is always so right on it. Thanks. Oh, and Ari knows all that law stuff.

  3. GAME OVER! JACKPOT! Please cash in your chips and get your free tickets to the Impeachment Removal hearing! Bound to be loads of fun!

  4. Mulvaney admitted it and today Sondland testifies that they were all in the loop.

    • @American Gamer Again read the Constitution do not listen to democrats, republicans, or others including myself to form the practical, rational reasonable conclusion. You can go right to the impeachment clauses. If you feel president Trump is innocent after fully reading the Constitution and the evidence agaisnt him then so be it. But again read it for yourself to come to that conclusion. An remember either we live by the Constitution or we do not.

    • @David Butler you still cant prove without a reasonable doubt trump held the funds for political gain. You cant prove Trump at that time knew more about Biden and Ukraine then what he said on transcript. People can say how they feel, but like Covington and Kavanaugh you must have evidence. The is what the Constitution says.

    • @American Gamer Again read The Constitution son what is wrong with you? The Constitution if you read it says he is guilty. Start there dont spin it any other way then that. It is equivalent to one receiving a mandatory sentencing in or judicial system. The law is written one must live by it. Read the Constitution why is that a hard job for you to do? Is it that you do not want to follow our Constitution like the president? This is very alarming if you are a USA citizen.

    • @American Gamer The evidence not only comes from the witnesses but the presidents own mouth. “I would like for you to do me a favor.” That alone is bribery along with the admittance by his Chief Of Staff Mulvaney “Happens all the time in foreign policy get over it”. After reading the Constitution there is no argument unless utter denial. Which seems to be the basis of the criminal GOP backing him. Dont be part of that group son. This is about or country not party lines.

      @David Butler I would like you to do me a favor is not a bribe. If you ask you wife for a favor is that a bribe? If its allowance day and you dont have cash if you ask your kid for a favor is that bribery? If your wife confirmed that it was bribery becouse she is spiteful and wants the kid to trust her more. She got her friends to back her up. Your now guilty of bribery.

    The amount of evidence is just about to surpass Mount Everest as the tallest thing on Earth!!!
    Will the Senate just ignore it and acquit the President?!!

    • Jim McLoughlin where’s the evidence Jimmy?

    • Antonio Montana why would I want anyone to take me seriously. Wally World is pure entertainment. It’s only going to get better the longer this inquiry goes on. Keep watching. Q

    • I hope you know that hearsay and feelings are not evidence in a court of law. The Senate trial will follow the law.

    • Sadly Republicans have shown more allegiance to Trump than our country and our Constitution. They betray their oaths.

      80% chance…Let him go stay awhile with Mr. Cohan and his equal Manafort compliments of the Southern District of New York procecutors…His crime family won’t be able to visit…his trophy wife and youngest son will be able to visit…but them other three along with the moochin’ son-in-law will be given thier own 6′ by 9′ room at the federal mansion.

  6. Sondland lives lavishly. He’s aware you can’t get that lifestyle in prison …

  7. Everyone do not want to do jail time for trump.

    • Ticia o L🤣L you ain’t lying 🤥‼️

    • Ticia o : America is being asked to accept Trump’s guilt. The GOP are counting on the HATRED of the Dems, to make people, “OK,” with the END of the Republic! With jail and disgrace, staring them in the face, how will they NOT RIG 2020? With, “access,” to everything, from the inside, this time? With Russia, having, “experience,” from 2016, this time? OF COURSE 2020’s, “elections,” will be a SHAM! And, when everyone KNOWS it was BLATANT? . . . SO WHAT? “We’ll have an inquiry . . . “ The Republic is all but OVER . . . Smh

  8. Trump tried to RIG the election AGAIN like he RIGS EVERYTHING in his life… DUH! He PAYS people to show up and cheer for him all the time like at his campaign announcement.

  9. I did not think he would take a hit for Trump. He was smart enough to not out Trump. But if Trump fires him. I’m sure his memory will come back!

  10. Sondland took a page from trumps book art of the squeal

  11. Well, if he wanted an announcement about investigation, he shouldn’t of fired comey 😂😜

  12. Sondland seems to have gotten even with Donald Trump about something. He was very patient.

  13. Hope this encourages Bolton to cooperate and put the nail in the coffin.

    • Bolton can play hammer. The nail is in. But until the base shifts to 39% Trump is still likely winner in 2020… Americs will again get the President it deserves

    • David Austin he’s not winning 2020.

    • Laurie Huntley | November 22, 2019 at 8:47 PM | Reply

      ThatsMrsB2U! Won’t happen! His publishers don’t want him to give HIS SECRETS AWAY before the BOOK (2 MILLION up FRONT) is Published. DON’T BUY BOLTONS BOOK PEOPLE!!!!!!

  14. “For revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival”   – Frederick Douglass, July 4, 1852.

  15. Yeah every time I am expecting to receive a direct deposit of $400 million dollars 💵 (give or take a few million) … and it’s late coming… I NOTICE!

    • 👏👏👏👏 Say that AGAIN… I cant believe that got by some people. I notice if I’m short 20 bucks!! You cant TELL me they didnt notice 350 mil. Smh

  16. Sondland knew this day would come and he would have to speak.

    Remember when he had the investigators investigating Obama’s birth certificate?

  18. A horse with No Name | November 21, 2019 at 1:34 AM | Reply

    Sondland called trump and asked for his million bucks back

  19. Trump was overheard saying “”Rudi? Rudi who? i have so many lawyers”

  20. So,
    Schiff’s Ukraine “experts” didn’t know about Biden and Burisma?
    Zelinsky knows.
    He knows about Crowd strike, too.
