  1. Barr is part of this too. Trump mentioned him several times during his perfect call to Z. For some reason we arenโ€™t hearing anything about his involvement.

    • @DIRK DIGLER That story has already been debunked by Ukraine’s own Prosecutor General. There is no Burisma probe. The rumor was started by a well known conspiracy instigator.

    • Unlike some of these other characters Barr is smart enough to know to keep as far from this as he can, remember he disowned Rudy as working for or with the Justice Dept. He knows this is a no win situation.

    • @DIRK DIGLER I see conspiracy theory by right wing propaganda sites, and the latter is an article by someone known to bend the truth to fit his own narrative, and is likely to be indicted or subpoenad very soon. John Solomon was working with Giuliani’s associate, Lev Parnas, on the dirt in Ukraine. Lev is accused of funneling foreign money into republican campaigns, and also worked with Nunes. I’ll be interested to see if Lev spills the beans on what’s been going on. Feel free to do a bit of background checking on your sources. I really don’t trust any publication that leans too far left or right, as they always twist facts in a partisan manner.

    Everybody’s Testimony has been damming for Trump, And their from his own Administration, What more do they need ? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

      Needs more Russian collusion with a bit of Stormy Daniels. How is that not indelible on the hippocampus?

    • Jim Jordan in 5 minutes exposes opinions and assumption as not to be facts MaMa. What do you think those Ambassadors were briefed in the secrete meetings in the Dungeons of the capital? Why do you want to overthrow our Constitution? Only Anti-American Haters support the Impeachment Process. “The Trump Revolution” is simple: Build The Wall to protect Real Americans, Stop Illegal Immigration to protect American workers, Trade policies are working for America first, Stop The Endless Foreign Wars, and the Infrastructure.
      The phony Impeachment is a diversion designed to block Infrastructure, Prescription drug costs and of course more on foreign policy // Pres Trump has turned the China Syndrome around and is facing China head on. What other brave politician dared to do that?
      Wake up Vigilantes, your hanging the America first to a Socialized govt to become the rich or the poor. Your grand kids will grow up in a Dictatorship in George Soros “New World Order”

    good reporting on this mess. so many curves being thrown. if changing conservatives minds a lot more info from RUDY IS KEY.

  4. It’s not any more( the white house) it’s now the headquarters of a criminal gang !

    • A Russian mob hangout. Kremlin Donny(aka “Twitler”), Giuliani and his Russian mob thugs, the three banditos.. Moscow Mitch, Leningrad Lindsey and conducting gag orders, holding back documents, stalling and not to mention witness intimidation, election meddling, bribery/extortion quid pro quo etc etc. Great work republicans!

    • @Bosca Ceol I’ve referred to it as the Shitehouse for three years now.

    • the legion of doom

      The WH is now restored to its original glory with President Trump. Obama is currently under criminal investigation by US Attorney Durham/DOJ for spying to interfere with US elections.

  5. Is it just me, but does it seem as if the GOP is trying to convince us a steaming pile of feces is a scoop of chocolate ice cream? The smell is a dead giveaway!!! Fiona Hill’s testimony is deeply credible, succent, and the lady is no pushover!

    • The GOP are traitors and I despise them all.

    • @DIRK DIGLER Socialism means the Government owns and taxes the people on everything. There’s no Middle Class under a Socialist State. Under socialism other then the rich all the common people are poor. Why do you say that’s better then what we have here in the States? We have Our Constitution and the Bill of Rights that the Democratic Congress wants to Ban, It’s yours and our Guarantee for equal opportunity. // That means nothing is free, It means we have to earn it.

      @zakeira Fer Where is the crime? What “facts” or “evidence” is there that the President did anything wrong? Impeachment is not based on feelings you have to have the evidence like the blue dress with Clinton’s bodily fluids on it.

    • CaliforniaCheez | November 23, 2019 at 12:36 PM | Reply

      @spoonyluv19 Claims of what?! What was improper?

    • After months of evidence & testimony, only one conclusion can be drawn with certainty. The Trump led GOP / Republican Party is the 21st century Nazi Party ! The similarities & ideology are almost identical, as is the blind faith & rhetoric from ‘Trumpian’ GOP senators…

  6. “death by free speech” is how russia kills the us democracy ; inject fake narratives and watch a stupid president believe them ๐Ÿ™‚

    • You’re a moron

    • @lima leaf frog the current government is more RICO …racketeer influenced corruption organization…Trump mob
      ..Clinton mob…let’s try Saunders and Stein …Green 2020
      ..stop wasting taxpayer money voting for criminals like Trump and Biden…2 sides of the same hallow and worthless coin!

    • They couldn’t do it without traitorous Republicans. I won’t live in the United States of Russia. I will fight by any means necessary even a losing battle if that’s what it takes to stop authoritarianism.

    • @Melissa H ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ

    • Trump doesn’t believe this Trump knows the truth he was there … he was in on it …these are just the Russian talking points

    Fiona Hill is killing it. Her memory is stellar, she doesn’t allow for contradiction. I wouldn’t ask her questions I don’t like or expect correct answers to. She’s lethal!

      She had no evidence of a crime. What are they doing? Most of the time there is evidence to be investigated. Here you have an investigation without a crime!! What has Donald Trump done to harm America? I watched with an open mind but am left wondering why is it so important to do this with an election coming up next year?

  8. Fox news seems to me running out of excuses, all they are saying is Ms Hill is a man and making fun of her . Makes me ill . Trump, his supporters and fox news are grade school bullies, I hate bullies.

    • Oh no! I better get over there, gotta see this, oh wait I came from Fox News, hats off to them, and RT for being honest thru it all! especially RT, I am not Dem or Rep, though I know what I seen today, and Dems are not winning in 2020, unless they pull a Kennedy on him, they might go that low, they have in past.

    • @Enyo Theios oh you mean the same thing that Reps blamed the Dems for, so Google just changed they’re minds huh, just like that, amazing, that makes no sense, denial my friend is perfectly Human, you will be okay.

      @8-Bit Fit …not a REP or DEM…just a traitor, unless you are from Russia

    • And fake news MSDNC and CNN are making a mountain out of hearsay testimony. EXPLOSIVE! BOMBSHELL! No wonder independants are turning to FOX news.

    Senator Harris said it perfectly last night: Obvious a criminal enterprise is operating out of WH…Several days ago Speaker Pelosi pointed out that Trump is an imposter. Way out of his league and he knows it.

  10. Fiona Hill is the real deal. Formidable woman.

    • @Robin Coble Sondland was a duplicitous, self-serving, odious human (I won’t insult any animal by a comparison). His deliberately evasive answers and at times openly smug responses and expressions combined with his nervous behaviours and misplaced humour were the classic behaviours of a self-absorbed white-collar criminal clinging to the remains of their shredded intellectual veil as their sphincters pucker from the realisation that they’ve been caught in flagrante and they’re about to lose their liberty and prosperity.

    • @Sean Lee But the day before he was shitfy’s blowtorch.
      Be all end all.
      Now hes a pc. of garbage because he didnt say what shitfy wanted!
      Hero oneday

  14. Fiona hill is very good,very sharp Lady.

    • Always beneficial to have excellent public servants.

    • I appreciate her for being a conservative who knows what truth and conservative values have in common. She just took the GOP to school about truth to power and if they don’t put her in extreme regard for her testimony and surrender unconditionally the world will suffer observing the vindictive vindication retribution tour coming to your district when the senate acquits trump this will happen so fast you will wonder… why didn’t we listen to her and act on her warning?

  15. Putting partisanship aside, Dr Hill is an extraordinarily impressive individual. The US is very fortunate to have her. She is the UKโ€™s loss.

    Dr. Hill is amazing. I’ve never seen a more competent witness.

    • Genealogy: From Paper To People Podcast. Have you read Ambassador Yavonovich’s public Statement? She is very impressive as well.

  17. Fiona Hill is EXACTLY why immigrants are the life blood of the USA.

  18. GOP looks small smearing patriots and shielding a traitor.

      The democrats have literally done nothing since President Trump was elected except try to overthrow the Presidency. They are obviously getting more desperate since this latest overthrow attempt is based on nothing but hearsay and emotion – not facts. Schiff must be held accountable. Schiff’s sister is married to Soros’ son. Junky Hunter also needs a hard look. We all know he isn’t even qualified to flip burgers.

    • @Benjamin Levine You obviously aren’t qualified to discuss this topic. The House has been doing their job and passing bills. Take it up with the Senate if you don’t see new laws even being debated.

    • Benjamin Levine | November 22, 2019 at 3:29 PM | Reply

      @TheGerm24 I’m sure the DOJ criminal investigation of Obama is unfounded. Lol

    • BreakTheWheel Now William Barr is revealing the criminal charges against democrats on dec. 9th. They never should have messed with Trump.

  19. Ms. Hill is very smart and sharp. She knows exactly what she’s talking about.

      No, โ€œI canโ€™t recallโ€ here. Straight confident and left Republicans no questions they dare ask her, reducing them to stupid statements trying to mitigate the damage. Nunes reduced to a gibbering wreck. Notice how many left the chamber early!
