  1. Decency seems to be finally making a comeback in America.

  2. Knowing that the president cares more about his personal vendetta against his political opponent than Ukraine is horrifying. Knowing that he cares more about what the Kardashians think than his oath of office is worse.

    • Trump’s still in show biz, Trump’s an acting president, surrounding himself with acting cabinent heads.

      @Reality Check so true . ! Great observation . He is an IMPOSTER!!

    • If the Swedes were to interfere in an American legal matter, Americans would lose their tiny little minds. But trying to interfere in an ally’s legal system? Perfectly fine, after all the dumbest family in America wants it. Americans worship anyone who appears on tv. Great intellectuals those people.

    • Personal vendetta? You mean like the entire Democratic party who have STILL not accepted the last election and do literally nothing else besides obsess on their hatred of Trump?

    Not to put too fine of a point on it but, the cellular network Sondland used in Ukraine to make that call to Trump is owned by, wait for it… the Russians!
    You better believe they were monitoring that call, and god knows how many other calls as well.

    Career Ambassadors & State Dept. as Hill today obligated to US Constitution to tell the truth! ALL took an Oath. What wrong with GOP and Trump? “TREASONERS”! No other reason!

    • open your eyes! MSNBC will never tell it straight.

    • Dianna Campbell, What’s wrong with Trump is well known. What is wrong with the GOP can be explained by cult theory. This is as has been mentioned by many others, is that the loyalty to Trump is not normal partisanship. It is a cult following, not unlike a religious cult.

      The followers will take on a lie and promulgate it to others. They defend the cult leader to the death, to their own detriment. This is what we are dealing with. When this is all over, republican lawmakers may need deprogramming.

    • @Felix Carpio Of COURSE there’s a way back, and it starts on the First Tuesday of November 2020.

    • Abdelhak Khalil | November 22, 2019 at 7:19 PM | Reply

      @Felix Carpio How could he? She will just debunk anything he says. See, Jordan is just a bully, and Hill is a strong woman. There is nothing a bully fears more than a strong woman he cannot bully. I wish Hill could run for president!

    • Abdelhak Khalil | November 22, 2019 at 7:19 PM | Reply

      @Phyllis Pierce I did! They just kept hammering Holms!

  7. “NO,One should buy Bolton’s book” 1st, his lack of moral responsibility to the American people and congress, What FINE, extraordinary, Honorable,example Mrs. Hill, Mr. Holmes public not political servants, proud to be American

    • @Nick King Moron. That’s the whole point. He was holding up the military aid until he got caught. Trumplethinskin loves the poorly educated. He got your number. He counts on your ignorance, and you obviously have that in abundance.

    • @leslie easton actually i have college degree and I’m sure I’m not the only one who has one that believes in the president until there is sufficient proof. Easy to come on here and make fun of people i hope it makes you feel better about yourself

    • @Nick King Degrees from Trumplethinskin University don’t count. You should wait for the coloring books version of the Impeachment inquiry. Just don’t eat your crayons ahead of time.

    • @leslie easton i guess all you have is insults. Nothing of substance to back up your views like most Democrats

  8. I’m just going to hold on to the fact that the Majority would not have undertook this endeavor unless they were confident that they could carry it through. Today, after the hearings are over, what is being said by senate repubs about how they will obstruct justice and disrespect the constitution/the american oeople as a voting body is truly and deeply concerning.

    • @34pat9art yet the white house has blocked any actual documents or testimony from the officials involved. Are you not the least bit suspicious? In all the Bengazi and other hearings, the GOP (like Graham and Jordan) couldn’t shut up about how the democrats were withholding emails and other documents. The hypocrisy is staggering.

    • GOP shows there true colors, there not really looking to find out the truth but to cover-up the truth, muddy the waters, protect trump, they don’t represent the people that voted for them

    • exactlythis will go mo further because none of the Republicans are placing their pledges and their moral responsibility above their own sel-serving greed-the founders WRONGLY assumed the majority of the Gov would remain honest men…not all be self-serving crooks. U.S I hope you have not lost your democracy…but am not convinced,

    • @34pat9art actually this hearsay defense is worn thin-there was plenty of direct evidence and if gov refuses to handover the docs or testify that should be taken as an admission of wrongdoing. Witnesses -rightly were stating it was not their place to conclude wrongdoing but to provide evidence which should then be examined by committee-impartially-not a hope there though!

  9. John Bolton should not be able to make money on this when he won’t testify under oath.

  10. John Bolton is a draft dodging coward who put himself first, he’s hardly going to change now when withholding testimony is going to help his book deal. 01:50 The same John Bolton who was a foreign policy hawk, who didn’t mind putting other Americans in harm’s way.

  11. David Holmes and Fiona Hill gave me hope. Lawrence gives me hope every night.

    John Bolton didn’t choose silence, he chose to sell his testimony to the highest bidder

      He has a warped sense of patriotism but he’s STILL more respectable than the American president. Americans USED to care about patriotism. Now it’s just a laughable part of the dumpster fire next door. 🇨🇦🇺🇸

      ….. Because he won’t do crimes with your dear leader (or at least shut up when dear leader does crimes)

      That’s not likely because dems will boycott his book and the base doesn’t read

  13. I agree that everyone will face a choice, but saying nothing does have a price. If you know that people are being hurt, whether it is reputation or physical security, and don’t talk you will have to watch someone else being harmed, knowing you could have stopped it There is an assumption that you can raise it at a later time. It doesn’t work that way, There is a moment and it may never come again.

    Excellent point about Bolton’s book as his lucrative reason to do the wrong thing.

    • It’s all about money with Trump’s republicans. No matter who it hurts. It’s all about money. Money is their God. They seem to think they can take it with them when die.

    • @Prophetess so true, all Republicans in my circle are just mesmerized by how much money they have with Trump in office. It’s not going to matter if our security is in jeopardy. Smh

    • @Prophetess These people are blind with greed & does not believe in God or Karma, hence when it’s time for them to die, they will find on their dieing bed very difficult.

  15. He sent a woman to do his job. These truth speakers are true American hero’s, Bolton is a coward!

      He absolutely did. He asked Fiona Hill to inform the Lawyer that he, Bolton, was not ‘involved’ with Sonderland etc. That’s something Bolton should have told the Lawyer for himself. Re: his book? That book is coming out in real time during this hearing. And Bolton isn’t writing it. It’s being written by the brave public servants who did their jobs, who did talk to Lawyers and who did try to sort this out. That’s where the story is – NOT with Bolton. I wont be buying his book – there wont be anything of value in it, it will all have been said by the actual Patriots, the people who have come forward. Bolton’s story? Is one of failing his duty to his staff and to the American People. It is a story of taking tax payer money as wages to do work essentially for himself and to hide from the very challenges he was paid to rise up to and deal with.

    • Bingo!

    • Apparently the women have the balls in this administration. Sad time for presumably manly men.

    • @sugarpuffbutty hear hear

      So true!

  16. Ms. Fiona Hill has bigger balls than lil John Bolton..she went toe to toe with nunes,jordan & the republican counsel..she held her own!!!

    There are those who are not afraid to tell the truth, then there are the others.

  18. It was no coincident that Hitler demanded that the “oath” was to him and nobody else and that is what dictators want and how they gain power.

  19. John Bolton chose silence and money, over his moral obligation to the Constitution and the United States. Shameful.
