      @Crystal Giddens that speaks of no precedence. And impeachment has no terrible precedent. Two people ultimately re-signed from office out of the three impeachments we had in the past. With two being re-elected but again one not staying in office due to the process of his impeachment. Did we have some huge war? Nope did we have a recession because of them? I think not. So tell me how this fear tactic the right is trying to employ suppose to work? Cause it is not so far.

      @Calvin R. Johnson Jr. *Sets ‘Horrific Precedent’* you can read? right?

    • @Crystal Giddens

      So I’m guessing the whistleblowers identity, is what this Ex CIA operative is alluding to. (I truly don’t know)

      As far as dealing with our presidents, they are being held to a higher standard, so certain laws do and don’t apply to them. As well as certain freedoms.
      How the information was gathered is anther issue that must be addressed, but what Trump did can not be denied and that has to be resolved first and foremost.

      To my knowledge the whistleblower followed all necessary protocol procedures. So following protocol is a horrible precedent?

      @Calvin R. Johnson Jr. I literally have to spell it out for you! Lol!
      *“Now the American people are being told we’re going to impeach the president … but guess what America, you can’t ask any questions of any of these people because they have certain protections,”* It was rhetorical but reading comprehension is a whole nother thing!

    • @Crystal Giddens
      Your input does not make any sense , its not coherent and its from FOX so called news , that have many times had a person as a guest that turned out to be something else what they claimed … remember that Swedish security expert , that turned out to be a total fraud .
      Do you know whats the difference with Robert E Lee and todays republicans ? … Robert E Lee knew he was committing treason against USA and its constitution .

    This is the best spin the GOP can come up with?! It’s laughable. They must really count on the ignorance and/or stupidity of their base.

    • Ikr?! A coup?! Lolol. Riiiggghhht. We’re going to attempt a “government overthrow” via a constitutionally prescribed, rule of law method that probably won’t result in removal from office b/c of complicit Republicans?! WTH?!

    • Sadly, it tends to work. It’s more complicity and denial than ignorance and stupidity at this point. They know who he is, they don’t care. They love him because liberals hate him.

    • Why shouldn’t they count on that? It always works for them. When your entire agenda is to concentrate as much wealth and power as you can into very few hands, then exploiting the stupid to win elections is an obvious, necessary strategy.

  5. Orange Man has no idea what the difference is, still can’t believe anyone would back him. Going to be alot of people going down with him!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Russian Republicans misuse English words like coup and treason at their own peril. This is what happens when they clean their guns at the kitchen table. They don’t wear gloves or respirators and don’t know the signs of lead poisoning. First sign: Trump starts to make sense. Second: doing what Trump wants sounds logical.

    • Absolutely agree, they’ve used both coup and treason in a context where they’re not applicable. We only need to look at the one leak from a meeting with Trump, paraphrasing here, Trump wasn’t allowed to shoot the immigrants at the border because it was illegal, so he had an idea how about if we just shoot them in the legs to slow them down. Now what happened his staff and advisors told him this was still illegal and not a good idea. Trump exclaims” you’re making me look like a fool” .

      Does that tell you all you need to know, he’s so unaware of his own shortcomings, that he views it almost as a conspiracy against him and his perceived perfect ideas. This man does not possess the faculties and or the Meddle it takes to be in control of the most powerful government on the planet

    • @Brad Dibble He is a MEDDLER, and indeed without METTLE.
      So he interferes,and has no courage…

    • @Semper verum
      Yes voice text used meddle instead of mettle, as in intestinal fortitude, the faculties to make informed descisions, seems lacking as well. With any of his conspiracy theories as proof.

  7. Will Republicans hold this man accountable for anything? Trump has surrounded himself with enablers his entire life and that’s what emboldens his behavior.

  8. Who paid for Giuliani’s travel expenses to Ukraine?

  9. Criminals all across the country are going to start claiming that they are the victims of a “coup” when they’re arrested and charged with crimes.

  10. This talk of a coup is dangerous, in that it is likely to incite the violent amongst Trump’s followers, to take action.

      That what Trump wants,
      but if his Trumpturds ask
      him to go on the front line
      with them, do they think
      that Mr. Bone-spur would
      go? The biggest coward in
      the world, never been in a
      fight in his failed life. All of
      his lackies and followers
      are big time Trumpturds!!!

    • There defense would last about 10 minutes. Millions and millions of centrists AND liberals own weapons also.
      If they want war, it would end quickly. Just keep the children home. 😉

    President Scar’s only freaking out because he’s afraid his hyenas might turn on him.

  12. The GOP are becoming transparent and their tortured logic is beginning to fail them.

  13. It’s not a coup, it’s democracy.

    Bill Clinton was guilty as sin; however, he did have a lot more class.

    • Compared to this guy, Clinton was an angel… A bj compared to shelling US, Ill take the bj everyday of the week

  15. When Moscow Mitch starts to distance himself the republicans should realize sexual predator trump’s goose is cooked

      Tim Dog Moscow Mitch didn’t distance himself from anything, he is only going through the motion. But at least we now know why he just let the vote for voting protection happened ( was trying to grab the headline before this story broke, so I’m sure he is mixed up in this).
