  1. We should continue to impeach tRump again & again until he finally is removed from office or has a heart attack!

    A demagogue he is. Not to mention a really low IQ individual.

  3. Keep impeaching him for “ALL” of his crimes. Not just these ones.
    And remove Moscov Mitch and Barr first before sending it to the Senate of course.

    • The best we can hope for with the Senate trial is that the presiding judge Roberts will dismiss both McConnell and Graham for being faithless jurors.

  4. Republicans will gladly trample the rule of law, they’re a bunch of nihilists that view every issue as a zero-sum game.

    Nancy Pelosi has to decide when to present it to the Senate before they can have the trial.

  6. “The best hope of man on Earth” is how the US started but the US Constitution is outdated and in need of reform.
    There are many more modern Constitutions that would not have enabled such Presidential excess and rable rousing.

  7. So much talk about the “Law” but the Dems haven’t produced a single witness, or any evidence to any Law broken? When this one fails (Kavanaugh/Muller) I wonder what the Dirty dems will try next?

    • Kavenaugh is unfit to be on the Supreme Court. Mueller proved Trump’s obstruction of justice. Trump broke the law when he asked for foreign assistance in an American election. It is not my doing that you insist on believing lies.

  8. Trump is no different than David Koresh or Jim Jones. Trump just has a bigger cult.

  9. No we will not have our Republic undermined or maligned by Republican lawmakers who enabled a corrupt Administration for political agenda.👌.👌

  10. So true. There is no way that the average American has the expertise, or time to learn that expertise, that is needed to understand everything dealing the running of our government and the country. That is why we (hopefully) pick extraordinary individuals to do that in our stead. The US is not a Democracy, it is a Representative Democracy.

    • Roland Lytle: you offer a cop-out, and nothing more. It does not take extraordinary intelligence, learning, or expertise to rise to this occasion. On this occasion, our elected president has done something horribly wrong. He strong armed Ukraine, for his own interest. Do we honor a thug?

  11. #VOTE2020

  12. Few ideas should more frighten Americans of every outlook than a “demagogue of the moment”!

  13. Jon, do you know what you are talking about? The rule of law has been trampled over by comrade Schiff and the socialist demorats.

  14. Thank you for bringing this fine man’s perspective forward.
