  1. There can be no witnesses .. ** Typical criminal enterprise philosophy .

    • These people have nothing to talk about. Since when is Bolton at the center of this thing?

    • @thesun collective147 As in, just another business “run into the ground” ..

    • thesun collective147 Not quote empire. More like the hoodlum’s territory in the bad part of town selling poisoned smack to the MAGAS. But even so, he is some peckerwood.

    • sharon olsen Sharon, the only way there can be no witnesses would be if the top Thugs did a re-enactment of the end of “Reservoir Dogs”. Which isn’t the worst idea in the world.

    Trump is obviously guilty. Youd have to be blind to not see it.

    I like how Nancy keeps using the repukes’ own tactics against them. About time.

    • why are Democrats always so vulgar?

    • @Jared D Its a hoax because there is no crime alleged, it was a bipartisan move, no evidence or witnesses presented. I appreciate you reading the Constitution but what Nancy did was destroy the Constitution. Impeachment must not be politicized. Nancy used it as a weapon. Very sad day for our beloved Constitution.

    • @Kevin NYC Have you read the actual Articles of Impeachment? They’re right on point with what’s been happening. H.Res.755 on Congress.gov, the portion of the Constitution I posted is long enough and I don’t need to be doing all your homework.

      The House tried investigating Trump about Ukarine. That was it. Then he blocked the House from being able to properly fulfill their Constitutional power of impeachment. They launched an investigation and he told several departments not to provide evidence requested and blocked several key witnesses from testifying. That is considered obstruction. Not just an obstruction of justice but obstruction of a Constitutional power of another branch.

      Even now, he’s saying he’ll block Bolton from testifying. He doesn’t Constitutionally have that power, the Senate will have the power to call forth witnesses. If the Senate follows his orders, they are just as broken as he is. If you continue to support this mockery, so are you.

    • @Kevin NYC I would like you to tell me EXACTLY how Pelosi “destroy[ed] the Constitution”. Proof, not anecdotal evidence. I’ve given direct evidence of Trump’s impeachment and how it is Constitutionally vaild, all I ask is the return effort.

      @Randy Couch she is NOT in favor of open borders. Who ever told you that is lying to your

  4. Yes.
    And if that doesn’t work, then he’ll go on a twitter-tantrum and blame the Senate for letting that happen, despite having said it himself that he was fine with it.

    The forever-narcisist never change…

    • Unfortunately for you it will not happen, the Senate will discard it like the Stupid war resolution. Funny how Obama never had a war resolution while he was approving hundreds of drone strikes, hypocrites!

    • If Bolton decides he really wants to testify, he’ll be the next “suicide” victim.

    • Exaxly right…notice how he THINKS that Twitter Tantrums help him? lol

      Yes I just have noticed every time Trump 45 get caught doing something wrong and the public does not support him he runs as a fast can to one of his rallies gaslight his sick-of fans to believe his lies it repetition over and over no fact no truth coming out his mouth it’s disgusting and embrassment to have a President act so wreak

    • @evelyn hopklnson i just read…lmao…that pence went on the news claiming that the kiling they did on the so called emminit threat was….SUPER SECRET….ahahahahahahaahahah….code for…I DO NOT HAVE ANY it was a LIE…..soooooo funey that now he has Pence lying for him too as well #KissAssNancyBoyPence

    Since when does “the accused” in a trial get to decide who the witnesses are?

    WHATEVER TRUMP ACCUSES SOMEONE ELSE OF DOING IS EXACTLY WHAT HE WANTS DO OR WILL DO & WHATEVER HE SAYS THEY DID IS A LIE THAT HE’LL TRY TO DO!! LOOK AT PRESIDENT OBAMA & HILLARY CLINTON FOR 2 PERFECT EXAMPLES!!🆗🇺🇸✌😂😂😂

    The perfect moment again for Nancy

  8. “Other than one thing…” the fact that he’ll expose me.

    • #trumpPussyAssBitch…trump makes me asshamed at what he has done or tryed to do…i will be gad when Bolton tesstifys on what he knows…trump is toast on this sht….lol

    • possibly. too bad this was a political attack and not a real impeachment otherwise Schiff might have bothered looking for evidence.

    • @Kevin NYC its not over till the fat lady sings hon…and Nancy isnt the fat lady…lol

    • @Kevin NYC the only reason it’s political is because you deny the facts.

    • @Samera K We shall see. Nancy is playing a very dangerous game here. The Constitution is more important than the actions or misdeeds of any one President.

    Trump and the Pubs just keep giving themselves The Peoples Elbow.

  10. Susan Collins voted to approve those tax cuts for the wealthy and consequently I am so done with her!

  11. It is so obvious Trump is tripping over himself trying to cover his tracks by silencing anyone who has firsthand knowledge of his wrongdoings.

    • Tripwire68 Trig
      First or last; it doesn’t matter. Try harder. Certainly you can come up with an argument that actually makes sense.

      Tripwire68 Trig brains starting to dry out

    • @RagaSHOt…. Yep he’ll have a Big-trip-up very soon!!! – Good Always Wins 🙂 over EVIL…. even if sometimes take a bit longer 🙁

      Look at the bright side Hater/Losers. When Trump wins in 2020 you get 4 more years to share feckless infantile tRump insults and make dead-wrong idiotic predictions about the future. Then when he’s finishing his last day in office you can give all the smart people a “Neener neener neener we impeached him”. That’s show of LMFAO at your gullibility and stupidity.

  12. Yes, criminals dont like witnesses to testify.

    • @Horice Black You forget we are in an election cycle. Fortunately Pelosi knows how to walk & chew gum at the same time. Bolton already made it clear he would not appear for House hearings & would fight a subpoena that takes about 6 months through the federal courts system. He’s now saying he would be willing to appear during the Senate trial & guess what? Trump is threatening to exercise executive privilege, again, to stop him. Remember when Pelosi was the bad guy for not rushing to impeach Trump…you can’t have it both ways.

    • I have to agree with you the clintons do not like Witnesses they all commit suicide

    • @Adventure54 Pelosi is being humiliated. First, she capitulated to the AOC fraction and agreed to impeach. Then, she got humiliated again as a result of Schiff’s bungled investigation hearings. And a third time, when the Senate ignored her bizarre gambit to set the rules for the Senate trial.

  13. “We dont want witnesses” means they are hiding something.

    • Frank Lopez ya think? Anytime the administration has been asked “why would you not want witnesses” the response is convoluted and irrational. There is NO REASON to not have witnesses other than suppressing the truth.

    • Daniel! Don’t be a moron. Traitorous Trump blocked every witness he could.

    • hidding something? lol…exactly right….and trump is soon going to regret what hes Hidding too

    • When Adam Schiff was doing his circus hearing he did not allow Republicans to call witnesses

    • Trump has been persecuted for three years now. He has a right to claim executive privilege. The courts have affirmed that right. Move along now. Git !!

  14. So let me get this straight Republicans if your daughter’s and wife were attached and you had five wintnes so you would not want them to testify???????

  15. Just making himself look more guilty.

    • Kevin NYC And now he’s more than guilty stupid, its overwhelming hiding evidence, not letting witnesses testify, Wow you are awfully stupid. Think man Think, Don’t let trump use your head as a door nob.

    • @Joe Perez :Trump voters don’t care about guilt, or that he lies or that he’s a sociopath,they just care about ‘winning’ even said ‘winning’ is actually losing. Their cognitive dissonance prevents them from dealing with reality.

    • I doubt Trump cares when he still controls the Senate, Fox News, Facebook, and evangelicals.

    • @Leo Peridot Don’t forget Trump’s control of the weather.

    Trump is the most treasonous, money laundering, tax-evading fraudster in Americas history, and Republicans don’t even care.

    • They want to be rich like him, that’s it.

    • they care, He’s their hero and they all aspire to be as great as he is.

    • Richard Curren | January 11, 2020 at 7:00 PM | Reply

      @Mike If not for Democrats, Republicans would live like animals. They’re glad to take but they don’t believe in supporting society. Its all dog eat dog, everyone for themselves. They would trade America’s democracy for a white supremacist dictator.

    • OH YA AND BILL AND HIS CIGARS WERE BETTER? CLINTON FOUNDATION / RICO CORRUPTION. WHEN I THINK ABOUT ALL THE GREAT HISTORY IN W.H.& OVAL OFFICE LINCOLN JEFFERSON ROOSEVELT AND THEN WHAT HE DID IN THERE MAKING A MOCKERY OF THAT HIGH OFFICE AND DISRESPECTING ALL THOSE GREAT MEN. A GREAT ROLL MODEL KIDS? DEVIL IN THE BLUE DRESS LIKE THE PAINTING ON EPSTINES WALL

    It’s like every other thing Trump touches everything’s corrupt.

    • Annnora C Your disease called liberalism and your severe hatred of Trump has blinded you to truth and facts and denial of FACTS .
      That’s why it is impossible to debate a liberal? They live by emotions and not facts. Good luck .
      How did that manufacture border crisis work out. ?

      Annnora C Exactly!

    • @thecatfishrod
      Are you perhaps generalizing a tad? Hate Trump??

    You don’t block witnesses when you’re not guilty, It definitely speaks for its self, Most Americans, Only want the whole truth, And some Accountability for the actions taken ! 🤔

      There is one question I would like answered. …… What else is on that secret server??? I bet there’s a gold mine of corruption hidden there. That may just be the reason the GOP doesn’t want witnesses with first hand knowledge.

    • Imagine thinking trump wasn’t going to win the next election lmfao

    • @Gundogfly That’s good advice. You should try it.

    • I have to agree with you on that one if you testify against the clintons or you have dirt they automatically commit suicide

  20. The Senate “trial” will not stop more damaging evidence from coming out during the coming months.

    • Well let them continue there is the election and and it can only cause damage and seats lost. And more questions asked and uprising among Americans and name calling of loyalty to this possible traitor.
