  1. Trump aides wanted to serve America. How did they get turned? When they acted to put Trump rewards ahead of our constitution.

  2. He’s talking to his thugs see if he can get them to do some harm

    • You’re completely right I’m unsure if people were listening to the part when trump said see we are at war and then trump went into what would happen in the old day’s. Which means trump is giving people the reason to harm others is because we’re at war. And to me that’s the sham fullness of it all.🤔🤔🤔

    • He needs to be reminded that plenty of folks in the 70% plus WE THE PEOPLE are armed, too😊

  3. I was hoping for a person with integrity to become The Whistleblower and here they are. He immediately has to threaten but their very life?. He is unraveling isn’t he!

    • tRUMP is a thug, a sick man calling others people sick while spewing his suggested threats 🙁

    • We the people👀👀👀😳😯😶😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👮👌👋👋👉👉👊👊👀✋👀✋👀✋🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🐊🕛🕧🕐🕜🕑🕝🕒🕞🕓🕟🕔🕠🕕🕛????????????????????????????????????????????✋🐊

  4. Next the orange man will arrange to meet the whistle blower on fifth avenue.

    • Michael Brown Or out in the middle of nowhere with his crew and a bunch of baseball bats.

    • @Norman Wang That’s right. The mob boss usually leaves the dirty work to others. Interesting that he compromised Mike Pence in the Ukraine collusion affair. He does not trust Pence and wants to make sure that if he goes down, that they will go down together.

  5. The more tRump speaks, the tighter the noose around his neck gets.

  6. It’s interesting that Trump talks about what used to be done to traitors… Since he very well may be a traitor…

  7. Impeachment is a good first start to putting him in chains.

    The people who aided the process of covering, hiding, twisting, handeling, ……………………. all of DT’s bs, needs to also be held accountable.

    Yes, I miss the “good old days” too, when a traitor, even a president, would get his just deserts.

    The depth to which the WH and apparently all of it occupants have betrayed their country – can we afford to waite until 1/2021 to clean house?

  12. I looked up the definition on a whistle-blower and it said “hero”

    • I want to be a whistleblower next… I don’t know Pelosi or Schumer, but I can just make up stuff and get them thrown out.

    • @Quiet Entropy Nancy is desperately trying to save FACE. With Warren as the presidential candidate Omar and Tlaib will have to pray for divine intervention. Maybe a some people fly over.

    • @Spinko Kerplinko oh you poor thing, you really are a little paranoid. I do not have twitter or smoke any meth. A guilty conscience? do you want to unburden? call your Kremlin King…Or Chump whatever. Obviously you are irrelevant.

    • @Joy Phillips go ahead, try it, asshat! you better have some evidence to accompany that whine.

    • @B.J Cameron You sound moronic. How old are you? Nothing you just stated made sense & I’m willing to bet you can’t even explain it. Did warren win the democratic nomination? Like Nancy said, “Trump is self impeaching” & it’s only going to get worse for Trump & his inbred mongrels. It’s going to be glorious to watch the self-destruction. Lol! Omar & Tlaib’s job approval ratings are way higher than Trump’s in their districts. Politics is local.

  13. Best quote from this week gone bye, Nancy
    Pelosi, “you’re in my wheelhouse now, Donald”.

  14. Insane man threatening to murder an american citizen for exposing him as a traitor.

  15. Making America Great Again Impeach. Then Imprison.

  16. Criminal traitor Trump, Russian agent/asset. Should have been impeached long ago. Belongs in prison along with his lackey enablers.

    • He’ll never be impeached. Pelosi knows this. She’s under pressure. It’s just politics to satisfy the base with an attempt. People like you.

  17. I miss the “old days” when we had smart presidents. Way back 3 years ago.

      @Scientific Methodology …. I have been seeing your comments around and proved you wrong before. I do not lack anything in comparison to you. However Trump supporters will be running with their tails between their legs soon enough. Trump will be impeached , that’s a fact now what charges be will stick if there is any criminal charges, that is a wait and see thing. Obstruction will be applied however I am confident on that one. Either obstruction of justice, obstruction of Congress and or both. We can only hope treason is on that list .

    • and a very smart First Lady!!!

      Florida Crypto R excuse me? Well that’s a flat out lie! Let me guess- you’re a liberal…

    When Trump says “these people are sick” he is projecting his mental illness upon the democrats. Trumps public actions over the past nearly 3 years have been a brilliant and colorful display of narcissistic and sociopathic traits.

    • @Jim MacReady Two sides: Law abiding and lawless. Nothing to hide? Don’t hide it.

    • Ranaldo Bobsled at least trump isn’t teaching little children to be transsexuals and murder babies in the 9th month! You are the insane one for supporting that

    • @Tyler Overbeck You’re lying. for tRump. In fact it is tRump who is locking babies in cages. Several have died.

  19. A true historically corrupt individual calling people doing their fundamental job traitors is beyond belief. Incredible.

      Democratic New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler is going crazy in his attempt to throw President Donald Trump out of office.
      The House Judiciary Committee chairman is so enamored with the prospect of undoing the 2016 election that he is willing to repeat false interpretations of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report just to get it done.

      Fox News reported that during the Democratic press conference about Mueller’s testimony, Nadler claimed that the only reason Trump was not indicted was that he was a sitting president. Nadler even referenced a specific exchange between Mueller and Democratic California Rep. Ted Lieu.

      “He told us in a remarkable exchange with Mr. Lieu that but for the Department of Justice policy prohibiting [him] from doing so, he would have indicted President Trump,” Nadler said.

      Nadler seems to forget that Mueller himself went out of his way to debunk the claim after Democrats began treating it as the Holy Grail of Impeachment.

      In the exchange, Lieu asked Mueller to clarify his decision not to indict Trump, asking, “the reason that you did not indict the president is because of the OLC opinion that you cannot indict a sitting president, correct?”

      “Correct,” Mueller responded.

      That was the bombshell that Democrats were looking for in an otherwise dreary set of hearings.

      Unfortunately for the left, it was simply too good to be true. Mere hours later, Mueller took it upon himself to clarify his response.

      Mueller adding a correction to his testimony this morning…

      “I want to go back to one thing that was said this morning by Mr. Lieu who said, and I quote, ‘you didn’t charge the president because of the OLC opinion.’ That is not the correct way to say it.”

      “I want to add one correction to my testimony this morning,” Mueller said before beginning his second hearing. “I want to go back to one thing that was said this morning by Mr. Lieu, who said and I quote, ‘You didn’t charge the president because of the OLC opinion.’ That is not the correct way to say it. As we say in the report and as I said at the opening, we did not reach a determination as to whether the president committed a crime.”

      @RUSSIAN SALAD DRESSING Another person who hasn’t read the Mueller Report. It contains 10 separate examples of how the administration weren’t cooperating with the SC to the best of their abilities, muddying the investigation by withholding information and/or provided misinformation. Which is obstruction by definition.
