  1. GOP Senators’ and Representatives’ response to Russian bounty hunting and Trump’s failure to respond to Putin’s aggression:
    “But what about Hillary’s emails? But what about Benghazi? But what about Obama’s tan suit?”

      They didn’t pass up a moment to accuse Hillary of murder, but now that It’s there guy, they make up nothing but excuses.

    Trump must be tried for treason. If he isnโ€™t a traitor no one is!

    • @Vedran came from China just in time for election.

      @Stephen Kelly Yes, the difference between now and then is our president wasn’t in bed with them. You cannot honestly believe that this is the same as what happened during the Cold War. Trump is complicit in these actions, complicit through inaction. We also trained Bin Laden how to beca terrorist, so what? We were in indirect conflict with the SOVIET UNION. Trump and his family are afraid to say BOO to Putin because they would face financial ruin. That’s why nothing has been done or said about it. Look into Trump’ family business connections with Russia. Trump is looking out for Trump post White House. He would be financially ruined if he butted heads with Putin. So, don’t even try to go there and rewrite history to sell YOUR narrative. I was in the Cold War. I trained every day to fight Communusts. If MY CINC had been in the same situation, it surely would have been addressed and handled.

      @Bruce Smith Please cite your sources. I am tired of the far-right (the only ones who still support him) tossing around lies. Here is my counterpoint to help you out. https://www.businessinsider.com/hunter-biden-china-business-connections-everything-we-know-2019-10

      @Vedran Yes, they are militants and they are Islamic. Taliban=Islamic Militant. How is that even remotely the same as “kung flu?”

    Definition of Treason in USA.
    “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States”

  6. Every current GOP senator has cemented their place in American history.

  7. This is what happens when we have a president who has made it part of his policy to ignore, contradict, and call the national security agencies liars.

    • @Doke Smoinks

      Well, when someone lumps EVERYBODY who opposes/contradicts him into the heading: liars and/or enemy of the state, I tend to look at that person skeptically.
      BTW, considering how many times Chump has been wrong, I find your support for him paradoxical.

    • Doke Smoinks | June 29, 2020 at 6:22 PM | Reply

      @Leonie Romanes I donโ€™t know what theyโ€™ve said to each other. Are you an expert?

    • Doke Smoinks | June 29, 2020 at 6:29 PM | Reply

      @Howard Kerr I agree with you, problem here is these intelligence agencies you hold so high on your morality meter tend to fall short when integrity comes into question, especially when they have the power to start wars based on false info, falsified intel that has effected this nation for several decades. Never said I supported him, just didnโ€™t think it was weird he didnโ€™t trust everything that was told to him, especially considering what happened to Bush.

    • Arlmone Smith | June 29, 2020 at 6:42 PM | Reply

      @Doke Smoinks you make a valid point but at least Bush had the integrity to at least make a commitment and go down with his ship

    • Jamie Murray | June 29, 2020 at 8:14 PM | Reply

      An upvote of 299 is quite impressive. You couldnโ€™t be more correct!

  8. Trump’s Boss put a Bounty Out… Let that Sink IN! Trump needs to be Tried for TREASON!

    And there is no one not one Republican saying anything. Serious they are that dam scared of doing there jobs wow dam shame.

      @DanielT 25 Please. The slaveholders were CONSERVATIVES, NOT LIBERALS. LIBERALS WERE THE ABOLITIONISTS. IF LINCOLN WERE ALIVE TODAY, HE WOULD BE A DEMOCRAT. THE CONSERVATIVES COOPTED THE REPUBLICAN PARTY TO PREVENT RADICAL RECONSTRUCTION WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN THE END OF THE SOUTH. THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO FIGHT FOR CIVIL RIGHTS BECAUSE THEY WOULD HAVE ALREADY HAD IT. SO TAKE YOUR LIES AND GO BACK TO THE CAVE WHERE IT BELONGS!!!!

    • Not only he didn’t taking any action on Russians. Remember, SwampyDon is lobbying Russian pooty for G7. The Russpublicans are not just running out of lipstick to put on pig they are all becoming pigs themselves. SHAME ON THEM. KICK OUT all Russpublicans (R) next to their names. Flush the turd Nov 3rd, VOTE FOR BLUE 2020.

    • Daniel Bramer | June 29, 2020 at 10:34 PM | Reply

      @DanielT 25 Again, wrong. The House is the grand jury, the trial is in the Senate presided over by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. The Senate votes how the trial will be conducted. That vote went directly on party line. How would you like it if someone committed a crime against you and the jury said we aren’t going to hear testimony or allow witnesses? You would scream bloody murder that your rights were violated. Now sit down and STFU. TWO STRIKES…

  10. *NO UNITED STATES MILITARY MEMBER OR VETERAN should ever support Donald Trump again*

    • @Stephen Kelly So. Contract killing American soldiers is o.k. with you then, while the Commander in Chief looks the other way. You’ve managed to justify it in your own mind. Congratulations..

  11. His corruption is so deep that Republicans can’t even hold him accountable for it because they’re also part of it

    • All treasonous guilt of supporting this trash at the impeachment sham in the senate!
      People , do not forget, republicans unanimously said,
      keep letting him screw YOU!

    • Kathryn Shaw | June 29, 2020 at 10:18 PM | Reply

      @Mark Cross – We can convict the Republican Senators of Treason (or at least aiding and abetting acts of treason) in their determination to not abide by their oath of office to defend and protect our Constitution. When they let McConnell talk them into blocking all legislation and failing to provide a legitimate Impeachment Trial to remove Trump from office peacefully, they were making active choices to undermine the American government. The COVID-19 deaths and disabilities are just the most recent fatalities that the Trump administration has rung up. Add to that the slaughter of children and adults in schools, churches, shopping centers, movie theaters and mass public gatherings. Add to that having our soldiers fight for the goals of other foreign countries. Add to that Putin’s declaring an “open season” on our soldiers, complete with a bounty reward. Add to that refugee infants and toddlers who have died or will never see their parents again because no one took the simple minded step of identifying them before putting them in cages. These are far more than a racial issue. The Republican Party has declared war against Americans. We will take the Republicans out of power. The Electoral College may or may not fail us for the presidency, but we can control every other office through the popular vote. Prosecutions for treason and financial misconduct do not need to wait for any election. Too many have believed that they were untouchable for far too long. It’s time for We the People to take back our country.

  12. He truly doesn’t care about a military he’s a draft dodger.

  13. You wonโ€™t get the truth from these criminals in this administration. How disgusting!

    • TRUTH ALWAYS COMES OUT! Eventually

    • Doesn’t this gossip ptetending to be news go against the whole “Russiagate” and Putin’s puppet” narrative? Why would Putin be trying to make his puppet look bad right before the election?

      Deepstaters are desperate and…stupid?

    • Sharon Smelser | June 29, 2020 at 8:20 PM | Reply

      @uppgrayyed Because Trump is the only one who thinks they are good buddies. That’s what has been happening all along for anyone keen to see.

    • Sharon, I’ve been as keen on this whole propaganda extravaganza as the next guy or gal or etc..

      For going on 4 years now, the lamestream media have been stumbling and bumbling over themselves to try to put out the latest “gotcha” hitpiece replete with “anonymous source (s) to try to propagate the bogus “Russiagate” narrative. Vast majority of this propaganda is later found out to be lies, or is debnked..there are many articles on the internet listing many of the more egregious lies pushed by WAPO, NYT, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, NPC..ETC..ETC

      Glenn Greenwald penned one such excellent expose on the rubbish that our shambolic mainstream media tries to foist on us constantly..I can add the link if you want to read it Sharon, just let me know..I’ve got a few other articles as well that are in the same vein as the Greenwald article if you’d like as well.

      This latest gambit reeks of desperation on the part of the deepstate.

  14. And at a minimum he’s known since Friday, and he still has not spoken out against it. He has not said anything against putin. He is a traitor.

  15. Gregg Robinson | June 29, 2020 at 1:43 PM | Reply

    If he saw the briefing he’s a traitor. If he didn’t, he’s totally incompetent and should be removed. Putin must have something on him and we deserve to know what it is!

    • REMEMBER HE PULLED THIS SAME STUFF OVER THE VIRUS.I BELIEVE IN JANUARY HIS ADVISORS AND THE SCIENTISTS ALL STATED HE WAS BRIEFED 5 TIMES IN JAN. NAVARRO STATED HE WAS BRIEFED AND ADVISED 3TIMES WHILE. GOLFING..

    • Wilf Bentley | June 29, 2020 at 5:28 PM | Reply

      How naive are you? Of course he saw the briefing. He’s just choosing to ignore it.

    • @Wilf Bentley Sums up what he actually thinks about America’s fighting men and women. He doesn’t care.

    • Leonie Romanes | June 29, 2020 at 5:56 PM | Reply

      @Jim M. Not one single trump has ever served in the military. Trumps grandfather Fred was kicked out of Germany for dodging the draft.

  16. โ€œWith you all roads lead to Putin โ€œ – N. Pelosi to D. Trump

    • “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,” Trump Jr. on their family business.

    • The only problem is that Putin is too smart to do something so idiotic on so many levels.
      If something looks too good, it probably is.

    • ISLAMIC MILITANTS! BUT TO CALL IT THE CHINESE VIRUS IS RACIST! AND YOU ARE NEWS?

    He said nothing because it serves his plans, while wishing people wont know its coming from the Russians.

  19. I’m listening hard for those senators, so far not a peep !

  20. He must resign. He’ll stand up for statues but not his own troops

    • Kathryn Shaw | June 29, 2020 at 9:34 PM | Reply

      Trump has always refused to stand up for American citizens or for America either. He will only be bothered with things that increase his personal wealth.
