  1. Corrupt to the core this thing called Trump

    • Ber Baby Maybe the name trump could be incorporated in American slang when describing a “thing” in a negative connotation

  2. The insufficient #45!! Smh..

  3. C’mon guys what are we waiting for? Trump becomes more and more unhinged every day! If Obama would’ve done just a fraction of what this stunningly ignorant narcissist has done, it would’ve been torches & chants at his window.

    • C. Holland Obama would have been roasted and burned alive by the Repuglicans if he did even a fraction of what Trump did! The hypocrisy is just disgusting!!

    • @MVEHypocrisy has defined the GOP for so long, it’s now all they know, it’s who they are!

      Personally, if Republican, it would only be as a former member of that disgraced political party. If Democrats pulled this gaslighting and obstruction crap Republicans have been engaging in for three years–threatening our democracy and nation alike propping up a lawless, toxic, treasonous tyrant who is inept, incompetent, deranged and depraved–they certainly would receive my antagonism, not support. No hypocrisy or Whataboutism to it…it’s really just that simple, folks.

      Any measure of respect for Republicans once held no longer exists, having been completed eroded away. It’s been replaced with utter disgust and contempt. This is lamentable and disturbing, because every nation needs its LOYAL opposition political parties, and Republican’s misguided greed, dishonesty, and power grabs have done tremendous harm to not only the themselves and their political party, but this nation, as well as the many others around the globe who are now suffering, or will be made to suffer, as a direct result of Trump’s ignorance.

    • @C. Holland why are you trying to change the subject?

    • @COO415 Pelosi is letting the time run out, on purpose. Corporate Democrats are not to be trusted.

  4. We are waiting. Impeach. Now.

    • Impeach today, die for trying tomorrow?

    • Ellen Spear. Nancy need to be smart

    • And all the people on the left are guilty for telling Illegals how to avoid ice. You lefty’s are pathetic and hypocritical

      @Ash Roskell
      “we, the people”
      Most of you spineless worm anonymous America-bashers are third world cesspool dwellers masquerading as Americans. That’s why things are going so wrong for you here in America, because your opinion makes ZERO difference here in America. Just wait until Ginsburg leaves and Mitch McConnell rams Trump’s third Supreme Court nomination down your throat. Then you will have something to whine about.

  5. It might be impeachable, but when nothing matters anymore then nothing will happen.

  6. didnt he ALREADY direct people to break the law a year or so ago? nothing happened yet to stop him.

      No, that was Comey, McCabe, Strzock that broke the law…don’t worry, nothing will happen to them.

      Trump told border patrol agents to defy law, block migrants back in April.

    • @DDKaraokeOutlaw Toxic Trump told Head of Fatherland Security, Kevin K. McKleenan, too! Trouble is making these people testify with Traitor Trump’s total obstruction construction. Simply making the current impeachment inquiries (and there are actually multiple areas of malfeasance covered by the various House Committees, which appears will be headed up eventually under the auspices of the Judiciary Committee) official does nothing to speed up court cases when the courts have already been formally notified through court documents by House leadership that their subpoenas are to further an impeachment inquiry. The impeachment vote has been Democrats ace card in the whole, and using it too early without the public on board would have been foolhardy and counterproductive. It is getting to the point where the public is clamoring for impeachment much more broadly, which is what is needed to make this urgently needed impeachment a reality not just in the House–which needs Republican votes for the 2/3 majority requisite for Senate REFERRAL from the House, if only a simple majority for impeachment INQUIRY–but a success in the Senate as well. Democrats need to present this case in the House, where they hold the majority, not trust Republican leadership in Senate, which must conduct a trial under the Constitution, but could refuse to wait for courts to release evidence, or pull some other underhanded, treasonous treachery, as the GOP is presently doing with its gaslighting and cover-up.

    • Big fan, Rep. Green, but–as you well know–impeachment inquiry is already under way, as stated by your fellow Democrat, Rep. Nadler. As you yourself admitted, you don’t have any actual solid evidence yet that the President ordered others to break the law. Hearsay evidence from news reporters does not hold the same probative value as witness testimony. So, Rep. Green–as you must also well know–you will still need those court orders to obtain that testimony and other critical testimony for impeachment. Otherwise, you’re just spinning your wheels. Official impeachment announcement by Dems not so important, but success is critical! As Rep. Green is also well aware, impeachment is not about just voting, it is a process to determine if impeachment is warranted. Congress voting on impeachment without the process is like a jury delivering a verdict at the start of the trial instead of the end. That process is critical to success in the Senate, not merely wishing and hoping like some adolescent love-struck schoolgirl that Senate Republicans will do the right thing, when they have shown absolutely no indication of doing so to date. We all feel the same frustration as Rep. Green, but we need to be clear-eyed about this, not running on emotion. Democrats souls aren’t in any jeopardy, here, and such hyperbole isn’t really warranted. As you also know very well, Rep. Green, your leadership is striving mightily to hold this lawless President accountable, and every single one of your fellow Democrats is going to vote for impeachment when the vote for referral to the Senate does eventually come up, as is almost certain to occur. If you wish to debate all the ins and outs of Pelosi’s strategy, Rep. Green, you have had that opportunity with your Democratic caucuses in the House, and you clearly have been losing that debate to date. The public isn’t privy to all the ins and outs of that strategy, because that would tip the hand of Democrats, so appearing on national TV to press one side of the debate without the public able to know the other side isn’t quite fair or honest.

    If Trump is not impeached, the constitutional remedy will forever be a dead letter . If not now, when?

    • Kenneth Johnson : Exactly. The Nation would NEVER forgive Pelosi. And, the, “outcome,” would be irrelevant, as with Andrew Johnson. Just putting the WHOLE TRUTH into the Public Domain, would END Trump. His Tax Returns ALONE would END him ✌️👍

    • destin : “Which begs the question;” Why do you need to ask? 🤔

    • Shelley Ross : Our, “votes,” will be MEANINGLESS without Impeachment. Unless you’re happy with a Putin style, RIGGED election?

    • The Punisher Oh you have heard of Geico in your country? Not that I would be surprised if you are actually one of those Americans that have absolutely no class

  8. Dictator that’s what y’all voted for, ignorant America.
    Enjoy trump y’all reality tv show.

  9. Trump is NOT getting away with this. He would say it was a joke or he was being sarcastic. But, the words coming out of his mouth, will be his downfall and because of his own doing!

    The GOP won’t do anything. They’re bought and paid for. Seems Trump wants that wall up fast to cage all Americans in so he can enforce martial and have the power to control everyone and do what he wants to Americans

  13. No joking…Trump is a lying thug. Why doesnt someone put a slug between his eyes.

    already International law is broken

  15. Trump is proof the system favors the rich over everyone else. If Trump isn’t impeached then the world will know the US is corrupt beyond repair.

  16. Hearing Congress say “Trump can’t do this. He shouldn’t be allowed to do this.” is laughable. He has done whatever he wants and has gone unchecked by anyone. He has found every loophole in the law and is driving this country into the ground. No on is there to stop him!

    • He has done exactly what his base want’s and what his co-conspirators in Congress allow him, he’s not that smart to deserve all the credit for what is going on.
      Something everyone should remember come election day.

  17. How much more scary does this need to get?!…

  18. Any illegally-built sections of wall should promptly be removed by the next President and re-erected around Trump properties. Without gates.

    Enough with the talk, impeach him already!😤

    When someone tries to hire a hitman they don’t have to be successful to have committed a crime, intent and attempt is enough!!!
