    1. F Fitzgerald- I know you’re making a point that can get watered down in optimism that someone with an R after his name is putting out there what a lot of us feared would happen without a peep from those whose words can’t be dismissed as “out to get Trump” Finally ! No immediate talking points that run continuously monotonously as the actions by this president get more and more atrocious. Dire consequences that silence and more silence bring closer. So in my joy at a hawk like Bolton having had enough and maybe getting through the bubble that hasn’t been shocked yet. Same crowd that Hillary’s private server sent into a tailspin. So John Bolton speaking the truth about behavior that is unprecedented … every other day … I choose to see as patriotism or at least principled even if compelled by fear and greed too … upon application is still integrity to me maybe made grander because than there’s an R after his name. Hey I’ll take it.

  1. Go figure, the warmonger was the adult in the room. Do your job Congress and keep the subpoenas coming.

    1. @scott chadwick I do understand that the House operates as a prosecutor.. Investigating then writing up the Articles of Impeachment…then referred to the Senate to be tried…Ignoring a Congressional Subpoena should be Obstruction of Congress for every count

    2. @scott chadwick Let me help you. Impeachment inquiry = Think of the initial interviews as a grand jury. Then their findings will be passed to the Senate where it will be decided whether or not to Impeach. .OK ? So far they are still dealing with findings.

    3. @Stuck Muffin yes but what they are passing out are not by law subpoenas. They are only letters from the house saying they are subpeanas. They hold no power over a real subpoenas. This should also be held in the judical committee not intel or the other two committees.

    4. @corryjookit I keep hearing he has committed crime’s. Yet everyone they have said has gone nowhere.
      Should someone overseeing this not be involved with the whistleblower or his complaints?
      Adam Schiff tweeted what the Whistleblower complaint was about a month ahead of time. Adam Schiff also with held this information from Congress. Breaking the laws or the he house. Now he does not want the Whistleblower to testify. The one person who started all of this.

  2. The dude is a criminal plain and simple Americans who still supports him should know better for what this crooked really is lock him up

    1. 215 Thuglord touched a nerve? Why so defensive I didn’t say you had to call him anything just pointing out you describing your base as you so eloquently did yourself without adding anything new to the conversation just a drive by statement which I mailed my counter back, no need to Reeeeee at me because you hate admitting he is your President, as for free country is it free or is it who talks like that if your free to say this that or the other why am I not, but I am sorry I did come off as saying your less of a man because you can’t state a simple fact the 45 President of the United States is Donald Trump 46 too

    2. @The Dr No nothing defensive about me stating my thoughts… You thinking you stuck a nerve is your thought but what you think only matters to you, that’s how this works

    3. @Barney Potter The Dunning-Kruger effect is a type of cognitive bias in which Democrats believe that they are smarter and more capable than they really are. Essentially, low ability Democrats do not possess the skills needed to recognize their own incompetence. The combination of poor self-awareness and low cognitive ability leads them to overestimate their own capabilities. The term lends a scientific name and explanation to a problem that these people immediately recognize—that fools are blind to their own foolishness. “Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge.

    4. Democrats are mind children,
      Mind children are easily led — and easily misled. People of low intelligence have very limited life trajectories, and cannot attain the middle and higher reaches of human vocation and achievement. Democrats as a group cannot match the achievement levels of other population groups. Because Democrats cannot match other groups, they find it easy to believe that they are being “cheated” somehow, and not allowed to reap their “rightful” rewards. They are right, in a way. They have been cheated by nature, and as a result nothing can give them what they think they deserve.

    1. @Petra Esquivel because Barr seems to be bought & paid for. Harder to enforce a subpoena when the head cop is dirty

    2. Hahaha!! MAGA = Making Attorneys Get Attorneys!
      And I hope they ALL go down! We, The People, have had ENOUGH!

    1. when they accuse the other side of something,,it`s always something they are doing or have done,,so yes I have always thought they were the deep state,and it`s slimy, i.e. rudy g.

    2. @MOONSHADOW 1918 never,,they are the deep state the swamp,,we are so tired of their constant corruption,they gotta go,from the head of the snake to the tail!

    3. Sorry if I don’t want to join the side that started the KKK and Jim Crow so think it be Nancy and the klan, always giving a pass to the democrats on that slave and oppression thing though wonder if the Nazi “switched” sides before the end of the war would you be cool with them now?

  3. Trump and his administration are like cancer, pest, and cholera, all at the same time, to the country.
    Finding an honest republican is like searching for a needle in a haystack.

    1. @test Testing
      Get ready to be surprised then IG report is around corner and the coup conspirators are going to be exposed. Those Traitors no longer have intelligence community, justice department and corrupt unelected bureaucrats protecting them. Its ova hoe

  4. Dirty Rudy received $500K from two crooks and accused Hunter for getting paid $50K a month from an actual company.

    1. @Jen Robbie I noticed there are some right wing posters who are either poster children for confusion or they are trying to cause a pall of chaotic stupid with their weird posts.

    2. @Fred Freddy -Yeah, I think they may have gotten lost on their way to the Faux News thread. Let’s kick ’em back to that thread where they can roll around in everything Trumpty-Dumpty.

    3. @Petra Esquivel Yes. Giuliani’s friends, Igor and Lev got arrested for laundering Russian money into the 2018 campaign.

      You aren’t talking about Biden are you?

    1. @test Testing its by Bridget Yorke SERIOUSLY. IT WILL WAKE YOU UP HONESTY. GOD BLESS YOU. IF YOU WANT MORE THERE IS

    1. *+Brenda Best*
      As others have mentioned, he is a qualified lawyer where-as you appear to not even have a basic education in English grammar. If you’d bothered to take one moment and do a cursory search, you would find he has a BA from Manhattan College and more relevantly, a _Doctor of Jurisprudence_ from New York College. This is in no way an endorsement of Giuliani. However, I think it’s important we have facts when we make such claims.

    1. Revival Amen how conceited as a society to think that we are anything more special than tiny specs in the universe. Why would we come from a god? We are not special, we do not matter to the universe we are dots compared to the universe. I believe god was created as a way for people to avoid the idea of complete and absolute nothingness. We cannot imagine not being a part of something and are terrified of a final end. So people create Gods as a way to escape death and believe there is more. And how do you know your religion is the right one? There are so many religions that all claim it and believe they are right but not everyone can be right. We will never truly know if there is anything beyond death, but I have chosen to spend my life focusing on me and the ones I love instead of praying to a god that may not be out there. That may be wrong in your eyes but it’s right in mine and you can’t say I’m wrong or you’re wrong because we cannot prove if god is real or not.

    2. @leslie easton YouTube this: my most important video Obama, Clintons, soros. Unthinkable in plain site. By Bridget Yorke

    1. Democrats are mind children,
      Mind children are easily led — and easily misled.

  5. At this rate, Giuliani’s attorney is gonna need an attorney before the week is out.

    1. What goes around comes around. America is too advanced that the President will be above the law. This is not about Democrat or Republican but the democracy of this country.

  6. #45 lies at a far greater rate than “Pinocchio” ,however no offense against “Pinocchio” because he is a “beloved fictional character”….go figure……Full Stop

    1. He at least felt bad and stopped. Trump has a mental disorder and can’t stop lying. I’d almost feel bad for the poorly raised, trust fund baby he is, but he is also a racist a-hole with no common decency so he needs to be in prison forever.

    2. If Pinocchio (trump) is a lying marionette, and his marionettist is Geppetto (putin), then Honest John (Guiliani) must have Jiminy splattered on his windshield.

  7. Zealot: noun, a person who is fanatical and uncompromising in pursuit of their religious, political, or other ideals.

    1. “Zealot: noun, a person who is fanatical and uncompromising in pursuit of their religious, political, or other ideals.”
      I feel like “fanatic” already had that covered, but yeah, it’s a good word from Trump’s cult members.

    2. @Mister Guy Don’t you mean “FOR trump’s cult members”?? I’m describing them, in case you didn’t know.

    1. William Burgess oh that’s right I forgot , your uneducated trump supporters. Right ? Of course you are.

    2. @Let’s grow uneducated?.. lolololol! What’s your excuse?.. you really must be hitting the brain dead blind sheep koolaide little fellah, and i hope you seek out a detox center near you.

    1. You liberals hate John Bolton now you love him. News Flash most R consider JB a liberal have for yrs. Just like the Bush’s all liberals

    2. @MOONSHADOW 1918 Lol nobody likes Bolton. Dudes just saying you’ve really messed up when he’s saying you did something wrong.

    1. @kevin cronan when Trump wins again, Billy Boy knows it’s jail time for him along with Crooked Hillary & all the swamp creatures. Surprise, surprise!!

    2. @Kem ! Wonder if John Meacher intends to write one on Trump to go with all the other books on presidential history ?

    3. @WHOPPER BURGER Take your pills. Then learn the meaning of the word “fascism” and reexamine your comment.

    1. @Siobhan Shavonne “And she’s always been successful.”
      Yeah, the world has always been a perfectly just place because karma fixes everything in the end. That’s why everything’s fine.

    2. Mister Guy just because you don’t see karma at work doesn’t mean it doesn’t. You will at least see karma at your demise.
