  1. “anti-trump” should not be a label that prevents people from looking at physical evidence

    • Exactly. Never before this president has the idea been accepted that only people who voted for and support the current presidency, without the slightest challenge or criticism, can judge Trump’s actions.

    • Trump has now told 16,000 fking lies and counting since coming to the office! Who would you believe? Trump or anybody else?

    • Dalton McKee anti-trump is a American patriot

  2. Weird that we’ve reached a point where when a President is impeached a large chunk of the country’s main argument isn’t any factual rebuttal of the evidence, their main comeback is to celebrate their team in the Senate being too corrupt and self-serving to do their jobs properly.
    Anyone showboating that the Senate would never vote to convict are literally celebrating the death of democratic accountability.
    It’s a weird flex, that’s all I’m saying.

      @PKay Gray The investigation into Biden’s and Burisma Holdings happened years before Biden even ran for president you jackass. Again you leftist keep showing that you really have no clue what is actually happening. Even people in Obamas administration brought up this concern about the Biden’s and Burisma Holdings close relationship and it was ignored. Trumps legal team showed hard concrete evidence using the LAW through CONSTITUTIONAL PROCESS that Trump had every justifiable right into checking into the Biden’s and Burisma Holdings corruption based on this evidence being brought up through the Obama administration and it being overlooked.

    • @(1765) come back to 2020 lol

      πŸ˜‰After swampy dry seasons then “predator” gators, wolves, snakes and foxes all crawls outsides to feast amongst themselves lol ❗

      Alas, there are no honors amongst thieves, and its ridiculous to hides behind the bushes of criminal minded injustices, and Bolton’s empty plate should not be ignored lol

  4. Why does anyone listen to tRump? We know he lies as fast as a dog gets fleas. If he denies somethng, you can be assured he is lying, as usual. Nothing tRump says is worth taking as gospel, even if he is Jesus Christ reincarnated, which I highly doubt, you may be sure.

    • I just decided that I will finally believe Trump supporters that he is the all mighty.
      IF he can make it thru the last challenge Democrats have for him-
      The crucifixion ✝

      Thank You. Unfortunately, the GOP mob mentality is a collective psychosis for power and control. It’s symptomatic of white supremacists, such as we’ve seen with fascists like Nazis and the Confederacy.

    • Trump and the Democrats sound pretty similar then

  5. The fact that they keep making this about hunter Biden when the facts are clearly not on their side is hilariously sad, is the hypocrisy with the trump children lost on them?

    • @Chris Dailey You realize Trump HAS been impeached right ?

    • @CaliforniaNrwYork CaliforniaNewYork This is an ignorant argument.
      With no relevant experience, Hunter was hired to “work” for a notoriously corrupt oligarch and paid millions of dollars for his “work”. Meanwhile, his father, as Vice President of the U.S. was responsible for U.S. policy in Ukraine. Do you understand what “conflict of interest” means?
      If the above wasn’t bad enough, Joe used a billion dollars in loan guarantees to have the prosecutor investigating his son’s employer fired.
      As was revealed in house testimony, Trump is far from the first to raise the issue. In fact, several Obama administration officials raised concerns as it was happening.
      It’s extremely relevant to the case because Trump has been accused of asking for an investigation for purely political reasons. The available evidence makes clear that pursuing an investigation into the Bidens/Burisma is justified.
      Deal with it.

    • @Chris Dailey … trump’s been accused of hundreds of crimes and paid millions of $$$ in fines, chucklehead…

    • @Chris Dailey …just deal with a bunch of Senators unable to get past what John Bolton called trump’s “drug deal”…

    • @Starman Dx Bullshit. Records show activity on the case at the time shokin was fired.

    “A President is impeachable if he attempts to rig the election.” – *Every Sane American Ever*

    • NoPityForACoward you are a lost fool.

    • The irony that Obama tried to do exactly that yet walks freely

    • What do you mean by “rig the election”? Do mindless nitwit sheeples even understand the talking points you’ve been given? In other words, how is Trump rigging the election?

    • @NoPityForACoward And I don’t think you understand how gerrymandering works because it doesn’t affect the presidential elections, dufus. And you’ll have to prove voter suppression instead of just saying it happened. No one yet has shown that it happened and you KNOW that if a Democrat thought they had been part of a rigged election, they would’ve filed a million lawsuits. Even Stacey Abrams didn’t do that and she still calls herself governor.

    • The fact that Hillary won popular vote proved that she was the one or “Russian helping her” rigged the election. It’s much easier to rig the popular votes than the electoral college which our founder father had wisely envision for the country.
      Rigging the popular vote only requires to rig a couple of large states(mostly blue states).
      Rigging the EC would require rigging multiple key and swing states.
      Which way would be easier?
      America is not a direct democracy but a constitutional republic.

    “Banana Republican Party” USA will never be the “Beacon of Hope” anymore.
    Why are there no one out in the streets protesting, thies LIES from Trump’s legal team???????????

  8. It would be easier to convince a shark to go see a dentist about its overbite than to convince a Republican to admit facts in Trump world.

    • Lj’s Tour guide , The American Republic was built on the foundation of Christianity. I would figure you would know something about the good book since you want to church when your uncle passed away. But then again your dumber than a 2 year old so let me help u! I don’t think the good book prompts violence and how you want to make treats killing democrats. I will pray for you.

    • Mournstar Nice try, Trumpkin. Here’s a πŸͺ

    • Lj’s Tour guide While I’m waiting; I never like to assume things but you’re loyal viewer of Fox News, perhaps. They found that a majority of independent voters support the senate convicting “President” Trump

      @Lj’s Tour guide “Free health care?” Who wants “free” anything? That is something made up by right wingers. Everything is paid for, and That’s why we pay taxes. Taxes that are spent for the wellbeing of the population as a whole, and not just the military industrial complex, the pharma and the fossil fuel industry, in other words the 1%.

  9. here is my problem with this whole thing… listening to them… it makes me sick…

    • @Stan Current
      truth leaves itself know by unmistakeable ways…

    • jerlands
      Not sure what you mean. Facts based on solid evidence is as close as one can get to the truth beyond any reasonable doubt, same as in a court of law.

      Psychologically speaking, this also applies as described in the book The Dangerous Case of Donald J. Trump by a team of psychiatrists led by Dr. Bandy Lee, who’ve shown how Trump has deceived himself.

      The prophet Micaiah saw this 2,800 years ago. 1 Kings 22.

      Empiracle truth is also relevant, even if it can’t be proven.

      But with Trump, he has incriminated himself. The evidence against him is overwhelming. But he can’t be held accountable because of presidential powers, pardons and privileges. The GOP is free to ignore his crimes, unlike in a court of law. This loophole should’ve been closed after Nixon.

  10. Time to put Bolton in the witness πŸ’Ί & hear some facts about Trump’s dirty deeds.

    The President’s defence is behaving as if it’s Joe Biden who is being impeached by them

    • @Ihateliber alswithapassion Could have fooled me.

    • Ihateliber alswithapassion | January 27, 2020 at 8:39 PM | Reply

      @Matt Russillo The Democrats are trying to stop the President from exposing Joe Biden by having a sham impeachment where they accuse him of the crime he was investigating Biden for. It’s classic, Democrat projection, spin and deflection. Just like “Russian Collusion”… The only people who colluded with Russians in 2016 were the Obama-administration holdovers who used Russian spies to write the document Obama used to get the FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign…

      @postman1782 Well, you Libs are easily fooled… The Democrats fooled you into believing the President is a Russian agent…

    • So are we turning a blind eye on possible Biden’s corruption?

    • @Mike Cooper Dems used Bidens name over 400 times the other day, Id say he is very much a part of this case.

  12. “The Republicans controlled the House in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and could have investigated Biden.” They didn’t. It wasn’t until Biden entered the 2020 race that suddenly “corruption” became such a Republican concern. Coincidence?

    • @Myron Shelley That Biden interview was in January of 2018 at a Council on Foreign Relations meeting . So at the very least Trump had an entire year to look into “Sleepy Joe” and didn’t do it. Not that Biden’s “admission” should have anything to do with it if there really was wrongdoing. It’s called research Myron that’s how you get answer to questions.

    • That happened just after an actual video of Joe Fucking Biden bragging about bribing and coercing Ukraine straight in the middle of the Council of Foreign Relations that it became “suddenly corruption”. No cohencidence there. Are you guys that stupid, or just actually blind?

    • @three monkeys Rudy has a podcast that starts telling the evidence. I have also seen some of it on YouTube. It’s not hard to find. It runs deep into the swamp. There are a lot of people covering for this.
      That is why Hilary said if we don’t stop Trump we will hang.

    • mjkl Where is the evidence?

    • @Adam Richard What happened? There was no investigation even though Trump controlled the House. He never brought it up at the time. Never asked the House to investigate. So what is it that you’re saying happened?

  13. The most massive “cover-up” I’ve ever known or can ever imagine. Our once lofty country is now a swampy smelly sort with that orange sleazy individual occupying the white house.

  14. Why aren’t they questioning trump’s nepotism with invanka and jared every time biden is mentioned… because that is worse.
