  1. Taylor, Kent, and Yovanovitch are amazingly courageous people of unqualified integrity who have risked their personal interests to further the interests of their nation. They should receive the highest honours the nation has to offer. I am in awe of them.

      The fact that it is you and other defenders of this Autocrat wannabe that is blind to what is happening to our standing on the Global stage, is truly frightening. He is isolating us and making us vulnerable. We are losing our allies because we can’t be trusted to honor our pacts and because he insults them as he praises vicious dictators. What don’t you get????

      What firsthand knowledge did they have of any impeachable offense? Why were they there?

      @Lil Sandpiper What firsthand knowledge did Yovanovitch have of any impeachable offense?

      @tnargskoorb1 hahaha, excellent retort

  2. What’s done in darkness will come to light. Finally.

  3. This makes me so sad that a woman with over 30 years of experience serving our country is abruptly destroyed because of Trump’s criminal actions. It’s like you worked so hard to climb the ladder to the top and then you fell back to the bottom.

      hey, KARMA, an equal opportunity player will play you just the same.

    • @TheArozconpollo Jimmy Dore the super Liberal from the Young Turks just did a show on the impeachment trial and it’s a must see for a Republican! Tell me what you think:)

  4. Goldman did an amazing job. Wow that was breathtaking and emotional I saw the pain in ambassador Yovanovitch’s eyes

    • I could smell her pain, and her ears showed signs of it to, along with her hair, her hair really showed her pain. yes yes the hair Cukoo Cukoo

    When will the reps finally decide that trump can no longer be defended? The party is rotten to the core.

  6. INTEGRITY scares these people.

  7. My utmost respect for Yovanovitch and all people like her. She’s my new HERO.

    • @Dolores Martinez
      You should swallow the spooge before trying to tell everyone how tasty it is.

    • @Leonie Romanes she is not testifying she is whining .
      Barack Obama Fired All George W. Bush-Appointed Ambassadors,yet we saw none of these men and women whining to congress.
      stop whit the MSDNC talking points ,this woman served at the pleasure of the president ,he is her boss.
      guts no it took no guts for this liberal whiner to whine to anyone who would listen.

      What is hard to understand is there have been reports of senior Ukraine officials trying to help Hillary win the election for two years, why didn’t the U.S. Ambassador grant the prosecutor a visa. Was Ambassador Yovanovitch part of the deep state part of the plot to overturn the 2016 election? It seems like it.

    • @Dolores Martinez She is invited by congress to testify under oath about things that happened to her in the lead-up to the bribery. It is not allowed to intimidate and tamper a congressional witness. The mere fact that she was tampered with, is an indication she is a threath for Trump.
      By the way: Are you OK with a president who intimidates a witness?

    • Get a life, what a moron.

  8. they were scared of her because she is honest

    • @Michael Hazle EPA was nixon when he had full control of house and senate and was the first big blunder of GOP …well after Johnson there were very few republican lobbyist left to offer anything hardly. so republicans had to create a new administration since the nam war was dem lobbyist. They cut in and grew the gov with a dandy sized environmental one. The pipeline to millions. The Homeland security administration…22 trillion spent. Then there is the the afghan war that rang up 20 trillion. Point is ( wow thats a lot of money) I see a pattern. G5 will be made safe for 20 trillion? New g5 administration. well cyber security is in the homeland budget too. Point is I do not care which party wants to ruin US i will pipe up the truth. Trump hit a lot of people hard in GOP and they have livlihood

    • livelihood issues. Means the culture of political activism while carrying out justice duties pervades law and order and its a republic meaning you follow rule of law set forth by ruling class. George washington new by his third war he had to have 200 lashes given for any dissent..even getting drunk on post. POW’s were to be given minimum 500 lashes with cat o nine tails with provisional saltings in public and for not showing up you would get the enemies retribution. enuff history.

    • @Michael Hazle Liberals are all gone. Its fully morphed into no liberal views just radical ones. Liberals were at one time small gov and business and free enterprise and low regulation and so on. Not no more. 180 to left for failed policy repeat.

    • MoogleMy I watch the actual hearings…..like my eyes witness the hearings and treat it as “ok tell me why he broke the law” . It’s a very simple concept.

  9. They should charge him for impersonating a president

    *Donald Trump attacking a witness during his impeachment inquiry hearings on Friday is a separate “impeachable offense,” a Harvard Law School professor opined.*

    • Kathleen Mitchell | November 16, 2019 at 4:49 PM | Reply

      @Skylar Smith I would be more polite but some times the situation warrants a more sarcastic approach. I don’t like to see others trying to demean or diminish Ambassador Yovanvitch in the way the Rethugliklans have tried to do. On television and twitter. The COWARDS are the ones who won’t come forward. She is very brave.

    • Île-de- France He is a very poor excuse for a man, let alone a President. He should not be allowed to treat a person , or persons like this, he is threatening her, he should be charged for the A……..e he is. !!👎🏼

    She was one against many today and she ran the room no matter what was thrown at her. That’s the resilience of truth. If it’s honesty there are no weak spots.

  12. When you’re that afraid of an honest person telling the truth and doing the right thing, you’re on the wrong side.

  13. The only time Donnie isn’t shooting himself in the foot is when he’s reloading.

    • @pie worm Worm pie the only thing you Rump supporters know how to do is toss out childish insults, instead of behaving like adults and standing on integrity and facts.
      It’s like u all have a combined IQ of 50!
      “I love the poorly educated!”
      -Donald Trump

    • @Lag Swag he meant what he said, “donnie”, with a little ‘d’.

    • @D Holloway yeah, i knew he mean Donnie Walberg

  14. My thoughts and feelings for the Republican Party have changed . I’m done

    • @J. Milton Jeffreys HILLARY DID NOT DO THAT U POS.

      Good for you!

    • Going full moron good luck just shows how ignorant you really are, the democrats accuse Trump of exactly what they have actually done and way worse, doesnt there despiration to get back into power bring up any question why they will go thru so much to get it? they are not concerned about any laws any truths, any people , you are a blind fool.

    She is a hero! The Russian asset (Trump), has to be held responsible! Trump is the only president we know in history, who got elected with the help of Russia!

    • Just because Trump busted Joe and his son for corrupt dealings with the Ukraine doesn’t make him a Russian Asset. You had three years to prove Russian Collision and all that was Hillary paid for a fake docier. How did you feel when Trump fired you for doing a bad job and taking a blind eye to corruption!

  16. witness intimidation is a criminal offense lock him up!

    • AN YOU ARE,the smartest moronic marxist on the planet.

    • Listen he’s never been a president in my eye.

      He’s dumb on s regular persons leave if he wasn’t rich he’d be smoking crack.

    • No, dumest republicans ever

      You mean Schiff? Emotions, oh, shocked to be released! Though having now a good job. A little bit too much shocks and emotions. The President can tweet as long as he wants! He is transparent! He is honest. The earler Govenor can play in a film of Hollywood! Besides: Ths TV sender is MSBC= Make Things Not Be C, better you lie!lear

  18. President Trump will be “going through some things” now.

  19. You can tell why this lady is an Ambassador. I think she represents the best of America.
    Can’t say the same for that boot licking egghead sondland.

  20. “You either stand up for America, or stand up for Trump. It’s one or the other – it can’t be both.”
