  1. If you listen closely you can almost hear the hammer banging the nail in the coffin ⚰️

  2. which is one of the reasons why they wanted our honest ambassador ‘gone’. thank goodness that she is safe! ty mr parnas and dr maddow.

    • Yes. Thank God she is safe!!!

    • Donny couldn’t just fire her,so he got his goons to intimidate her, threaten her, and finally
      maybe harm her if that didn’t work.
      What was Hyde ,a landscaper, doing in Ukrain? Stalking Ivanovitsj, that’s what.
      His tweet; SHE’S WELL PROTECTED !!

    • @Semper verum and he is running for congress, yet doing something so vile… he knew when her phone and computer were off too, her every movement. and talking about a ‘price’… it is shocking!

  3. The house of cards will finally fall..maybe..

  4. Barr needs to be impeached and then imprisoned.

  5. An American visa in exchange for something of personal value to t’rump? 🤔
    Sounds like another “PERFECT” arrangement. 😆

  6. This is Lev’s revenge.
    You shouldn’t have disavowed him, Donny.

  7. Are you listening Mr Graham & Mr McConnell are you happy you’re embroiled with these anti democratic criminals

    • FYI: McConnell and Graham are also anti-democratic criminals.

    • Liz Roberts – they don’t care. McConnell doesn’t surprise me, but I used to think Graham had something of a conscience. Not now. They have both perjured themselves. Someday someone will write a book on the transformation of Lindsey Graham and the reasons behind it.

      @Onair Carna I think someone has Epsteins books. Blackmail is the only thing that can explain this circus.

    No wonder Lindsey keep quiet about Trump wrongdoing. Because he is also not so clean… I seeeeeeeeeeeee………….

  9. Oh, #LubyankaLindsey is not only living in trump’s rectum to keep his job, he may also be in the know about trump’s scheme? 🤔

  10. Pompeo has basically thrown the people within the State Department to the wolves. As the Secretary of State, they are suppose to be able to look to him for leadership, and guidance, but instead, he has betrayed them for his own selfish ambitions, and for the sake of an undeserving con-man and traitor.  Pompeo should have his West Point graduation voided and stripped away from him.

    Impeachment hearings. November 13, 2019
    “You can’t promote principled anti-corruption action without pi55ing off corrupt people.”
    –George Kent, US State Dept.

    And this ladies and gentlemen is why the Ambassador Yovanovitch was threatened and removed from Ukraine. Because she angered the most corrupt president in American history.

  11. Trump was just looking for another “lock her up” moment. He didn’t care if the investigation was even started, In 2016 he used the Russians to get Hillary’s emails, so he could discredit her , he’s trying to do it again with Joe Biden. There is one thing that Trump didn’t count on, is that Joe Biden might not win the Democratic nomination, and that another Democrat will thump him anyway. Hey Trump, do you know that if you are no longer a sitting president, that you can be indicted? YAY!! Come on America, let’s make it happen! Let’s put the Orange clown, in an orange jumpsuit.

  12. Hold on to your hats Republicans the wind is blowing.

  13. Isn’t this *another* quid pro pro?
    How much bribery and blackmailing is he going to commit in one case?!

  14. And if poor Mr. Shokin had gotten his visa, he could now be permanently ensconced in a vacation property at Brighton Beach.

    congratulations, Amerikkka. You put a gangster in the White House

  16. So can we have an explanation as to why Graham and Barr were to have briefing meetings with this man who has already been sacked for being corrupt?

  17. Seems like Maddow’s a patriot. Master interviewer.

    • She is good. She asked a lot of the right questions and seems to put it together quite nicely. I would like to see her interview Donald Trump

  18. What was the landscaper and ex marine(MOS3051) Hyde doing stalking Yovanovitsj in Ukrain?
    His tweet;” She’s well protected ” ,he should be grilled about that.

  19. If Trump wants someone to do something for him then, of course, it’s par for the course they are corrupt.

  20. Money sure does buy a lot of criminal results!!
