  1. How did trump get to this point? He assumed he could run the country like he runs his businesses. That, and an absolute lack of knowledge of the constitution and RULE OF LAW.

    • Pat Byrne…the President has set in place Deals you may be unaware of. The Mexico/Canada deal has been sitting on Pelosi’s Desk for months now. South Korea and Japan have made very big Deals which now favor the US. The EU has made a big Meat deal and President has reminded the EU of the Military Umbrella COSTS. Poland has made an offer to the US Military and have purchased US Military Equipment. Germany and Sweden were not happy but they are now paying. President Trump has reduce AID money and the US contribution to the UN has almost dried up. The contribution to the IMF has also dried up and the US people will soon see more wealth transposed to them via Tax cuts.

    • @B.J Cameron And where, exactly, did you get all this information? And not a Republican or Democrat site.

    • @Franchardi The US Media spouts to their audience and say what they want to hear. Find a Media outlet that picked the 2016 election. who make a correct announcement that is proven correct and that is where you go for NEWS. I remember a New York Reporter who wrote an article from his Desk in New York on the Middle East Iraq war which was completely FALSE.Later he had to admit he was not in Iraq but had made the whole story up out of his head whilst sitting at his New York Office desk.Always go to the Horses Mouth. Biden has a history of corruption. Look. China, Ukraine Romania and see if Obama supports him.

    • B.J Cameron Biden is bad, Obama was bad, Hillary is worse.

  2. The FBI should investigate Nunes, too.

  3. The real question is “Why did it take so long?”

    • @Preston Williams haha well just see about that, so the impeachment did not go through, why is that if you don’t mind me asking?

      @AHMC HI we shall see… And to answer your question, the impeachment inquiry isn’t over just yet. That’s why you halfwit. 🙄

    • muuuuuud What hard evidence? Name some

    • Preston Williams Whether.

    • @Preston Williams okay fair enough, where do get your information from? I have observed that the media is highly polarized. Reports on CNN, msnbc and CBS news all controlled by democrats are pointing towards good chances that impeachment is likely. Fox being the only major conservative network and many popular conservative speakers on Blaze Tv, Patriot Post, The Daily Wire just to name a few are on the other hand pointing towards just the opposite. Can you explain why and how if impeachment is so likely to occur is there such a drastic difference of opinion concerning the same events. Like I said no Republicans voted yes to impeachment, what does that tell you about the validity of the Democratic parties claims? With such a difference between the two parties who are you choosing to trust in accuratly reporting events concernig impeachment and why?

  4. its time to tar and feather tramp send him to epsteins jail cell !!!!!!

  5. Being a pathological liar

    You can successfully commit many crimes… only takes one time to get caught!

    In the wake of overwhelming evidence and testimony to impeach DJT, the Republican position is all the more galling. How can they ignore the facts?

  8. “I cannot tell a lie.” – George Washington “I cannot tell the truth.” – Donald Trump “I cannot tell the difference.” – Republicans

    • @Bud Fudlacker you seem like a typical despicable ignorant poorly educated tRumptarded right wing troll

    • Mauricio Anderson | December 2, 2019 at 10:16 PM | Reply

      More like the democrates lmao….wake up

    • David Skeffington | December 2, 2019 at 10:18 PM | Reply

      @Over It Mr. Mueller had to follow the the OLC opinion, In spite of AG Barr’s position of convenience after the fact. If Mr. Mueller didn’t, I believe he knew, he would be labelled deep state even by AG Barr.

    It has become clear that there are many russian “Trojan Horses” assets threatening our Republic:

    Sen McConnell voted to allow russian oligarch Derepaska to invest $500 million in an aluminum plant in Kentucky;
    Mr Giuliani and associates funneled russian money to republican candidates;
    The NRA accepted $35 million from unknown donors and funneled that to its candidates;
    Republican defenders/enablers of DjT are now using russian propaganda to attack its own Constitutionally mandated oversight responsibility of the Executive.

    Seven US Republican Senators and one House Representative attempted a dialogue with Russia and putin in July 2018.
    They were ignored by putin, patronized by his government, ultimately betrayed and willingly became russian assets.

    • @Prophetess what Americans need to understand is that Hatred, Fear and Racism is the glue that holds the Republikkklan party together.

    • All that may be true but now our national security state is very belligerent towards Russia, which has not only led to these intrigues but also to a much more dangerous world. These people in the intelligence community have done so much evil around the world so as to bring much suspicion and derision on them, derision which is commonly mistaken as Russian trolls. Trump is corrupt but we need to get rid of these neoliberals and neocons for a better world.

      Many sanctions against aluminium producers, including just today Brazil and Argentina.

  10. Vote vote vote all GOP mobsters out. Emphasis on Moscow Mitch.

    • That must happen, hopefully the people who didn’t vote in 16 are awake now and we can finally end this nightmare.

    By his own doings. Simple…

  12. A real man will be honest no matter how painful the truth is. A coward hides behind lies and deceit.

    • I agree; Obama should have just told the truth and stepped down after revealing he was part of a terrorist plot to bring down the nation by dividing the people and defusing all the nukes.

      @Franchardi STFU! All you dingleberries do is bring up Obama and Clinton! Neither one of them have done ANYTHING close to the crimes that bloated orange does daily!!!

  13. This old man wouldn’t be able to get out of a paper bag if his life depended on it! “A very stable genius,” he is not! This is the stupid version of Watergate! 🤦🏽‍♀️


  15. Between Grand Old Party and Good Old Putin, were going to have to show up in mass.

    The Senate is going to protect him! So sad

  17. maxine russell | December 2, 2019 at 5:31 PM | Reply

    “Hopefully” The S— is falling down around their ears!

    • maxine russell Not a chance. The New York Post interviewed Zelensky again today and he said nothing happened. The Dems need to start looking for their next scheme to impeach ….

  18. Trump: “The aliens made me do it.”

  19. What I’d like to know, is why it took so long.

    I appreciate you, too, Ari.
