  1. This is what happens when you cheat through college, Lori Loughlin. Just saying.

    • She got hit with another charge. Its looks good on her. The rich and elite are always cheating.

      @j walsh Obviously you have never been around a college athletic department.

    • The Home Plate Special | November 13, 2019 at 3:02 AM | Reply

      Are you comparing her trying to get her two kids into a college via taking up an offer to give money to what Trump has done to enrich himself as a traitor to the United States?

    • @The Home Plate Special Pretty much. If you are able to “fail your way up” you are obviously not doing the diligent work others are putting in to be legitimately qualified.

  2. Sometimes the TRUTH is hard to bear…….

  3. The GOP is damaged beyond all repair. And they did it to themselves.

    • John Dunn Dam Putin must be brilliant if he has the much power of persuasion to have swayed 62 million votes. We need to get him now too run our Congress. With that amount of persuasion power think of the things he could get done to make America great. Since right now our Congress does zero. Mantra being make America poor. Where’s Putin the man of master persuasion when you need him????

    • Vendicar Kahn Yeh that’s why you are jealous and want to steal from us. We are smarter, wiser, richer. In America means we are successful and hard working. We are the winners running most of the businesses. Wow you said we are the winners not losers. Thanks for your wonderful compliment. God Bless You. I feel so much pride now that I’m a rich, smart, wiser and winning Republican. I never get tired of winning.

    • @Nancy Rocks – Your question is incoherent.

    • Colin Cleveland | November 15, 2019 at 8:52 AM | Reply

      @Vendicar Kahn Nancy has rocks in her head.
      She is all over YouTube, desperately trying to make it seem like Trump has more support than he does.
      A good 70% of online Trump “support” is anonymous, no history accounts, a lot of whom don’t seem to have a grip on how the English language works.

  4. These are the proudest cowards and duty-shirkers I have ever seen.

    • John Adams Really we just died so you could now be free.

    • John Adams All done by Democrats. I’m not one of those racists either. They covered it up. You bought it. Go look up who voted in civil rights while you are selling your soul to your party. That other guy on here Is a jerk. There are jerks in every party. I would denounce him.

      @nancy rocks….

      You go girl !……

      The racist at the top 👆 needs “special attention”…….

  5. Remember when people looked up to America…………

  6. Conservatism, by its very core nature, is an absolutist, black-and-white way of thinking. Conservatism is rooted in the past; it is hidebound, dogmatic, intellectually incurious, unwilling to explore and examine differing viewpoints, and completely, often rabidly dismissive of evidence to the contrary of its beliefs and core principles. “Conservative” people tend to be adamantly, willfully, often venomously ignorant of the truth, because the truth offends them. They seem to be hard-wired into this obstinacy, to the point of pathological obsession. This is why repubicans are simply incapable of governing, because Republicans aren’t interested in governing, they want to rule, and there’s a big difference between the two. Ruling, and authoritarianism, lies at the heart of what conservatism has always been about.

      @JosĂ© Hunter’s EW&F Remixes It sure beats your “orange spooge”….

      @Rand Kocher Then, cockbreath, how would you explain that I identify as Anti-Conservative, yet hold a graduate degree in Abstract Math? Does anyone in your disgusting braindead dogmatic political movement want to claim that you _”deduce and make decisions based on logic, objectivity.”_ to a greater extent than I do?

      Plus, I’m better looking, have a much better sense of humor, and a much more massively strong physical “endowment”

  7. Trump will be awaiting his NEXT Command from his Overlord, Vladdy Putin!

      You fell for the meme hard, huh?

    • JUST ME Wow. Think what those two brilliant leaders could do putting their heads together for the good of the world. Instead of posturing and fighting. Instead of using their fists using their brains. To prevent the end of the world by destructive nuclear war. I lived during the Cold War. It was horrible. Kids went to bed every night thinking we would wake up to nuclear war. We did drills called duck roll and cover. Trump is about my age so he did them too. I don’t want to go back to those times before Reagan. Reagan befriended Russia and ended the Cold War. Thank God for Trump he’s doing the same. Thank God we didn’t get Hillary. We would all be dead right now. Nuked!!!!

    • Greg M HOW DARE TRUMP Meet with Turkey President. Our ally for 70 years with NATO. How dare President Trump negotiate a safe place for Kurds and aid to help 4 million Kurd refugees inside Turkey. How dare Trump prevent Putin from moving strategically into Turkey by supporting Erdogan. What the he’ll was he thinking wanting Peace and protection guaranteed the Kurds. How dare he not send our soldiers to die fighting the same country that helped us defeat Nazism in WW2. No we can’t trust them despite 70 years of a mutual friendship. Dam that Trump not wanting a war and actually getting us to peace. Dam him.

    • Byzenteen Dutchies He’s brilliant because as you noted. He is able to be comrades with Putin at the very same he is our NATO ally, Turkey missiles to protect them from the. Russians. Wow, Trump must be a master of colluding with Putin while disarming him while arming NATO to protect themselves against Russia. Dam you convinced me. He is a stable genius. Thanks!!! Especially if he could do that much master manipulation of Russia. I’m impressed.

      @Nancy Rocks I never stated trump was brilliant.

    Vote them out for failing their sworn duty

    None so blind as those who do not want to see!

    • John Swofford Yep all the Democrats who deny God. Our nation is under God. Not one nation under Democratic Socialist tyranny.

    • Anthony 337 chism Headed up being crap. A friend of a friend of mine across the street from me might have heard Trump talking to a friend of a friend of mine saying he wanted an investigation. What that’s gossip and a party line hearsay. Inadmissible in courts of law. These men have never met Trump. They even admitted no direct evidence. I thought those most powerful witness. When asked would you impeach Trump on what you know. Not a single one raised their hands. They don’t even think what they feel is worthy of impeachment. First day. Democrats scored zero.

    • Rand Kocher Amen. Couldn’t have said it better. Also I don’t think the average person knows most businesses operate doing quid pro quos. Example. People saying to another company. I will give you this part cheaper if you give me the parts I need cheaper too. Used to be I will scratch your back if you scratch mine. They aren’t necessarily a criminal exchange. Unless I take a gun and say at the end I will shot you if you don’t agree to this. The crime was the threat of harm in the negotiating of a deal. Biden quid pro quo was actually okay until he thrrestened harm. The lack of aid harming Ukraine if they didn’t comply with firing the prosecutor. The implied threat of harm was the crime. Trump was brokering a deal the quid pro quo. He didn’t commit a crime in the brokering of that deal. Like saying as Biden did I will not give you aid implied harm to the former President. Democrats give Biden a pass on his quid pro quo with an implied threat. Yet Trumps quid pro quo without an implied threat of harm is causing this impeachment inquiry. No aid was withheld if the investigation didn’t happen. They are grasping at straws. Trump 2020.

    • @Nancy Rocks Trump and GOP do not want to see the truth.

  10. Can these so called senators be impeached for dereliction of duty?
    POS graham has made it clear: I dont wanna read it. I dont wanna hear it.

    Boot him and anyone like him who takes a dump on the constitution!

    • Ganiscol Funny I watched him too. I didn’t hear what you did. He wasn’t talking about the transcript. He meant the testimony that has been so far just hearsay. All he needs is the transcript. Just like all Democrats need is the Whistleblower.
      Lyndsay knows,you can’t get factual evidence from a friend of a friend who might have heard Trump maybe talk about Biden. Yet the witness never met Trump. Now Trump is denying the call. The only evidence that matters is the transcript. The Presidents of Ukrainian and his ambassador’s testimony of the call. They are the central witnesses. They were on the call. Period.
      To give you more context. How would you feel if you were accused of cheating by two of your friends off hearsay and opinion? believed by your wife from hearsay. With the end result she believed the hearsay instead of you. You end up divorced.A friend sees you at a store talking and hugging a friend of your from work. So they not knowing what they saw go tell another friend hearing what you saw. Calls it cheating. The actual witness has doubts so they don’t tell your wife. The other friend judging it was cheating tell your wife. They also tell your wife another friend actually saw it. They believe it. Your wife believes them instead of you.
      From a witness that saw you standing by . Telling her what happened. Telling her they and another friend thinks you are cheating. Truth. It was a friend at work who just lost her husband. She was upset so you hugged her. Your wife than leaves you. How would you feel if that happened to you? It’s happening to Trump.

    More lies. You’re damned right they’ll be watching.

  12. Helen Righteousness | November 13, 2019 at 2:32 AM | Reply

    I will watch the impeachment hearings carefully and attentively!!!

  13. So None of them are going to do their JOB!

    • JosĂ© Hunter's EW&F Remixes | November 13, 2019 at 5:13 AM | Reply

      Except for that extra special JOB, for which they will be rewarded with orange spooge…

      OK, I admit that was totally _disgusting_

  14. why do people elect these guys, they do not do their jobs

    • tihzho UN is Abu Harris of liberal globalists draining our coffers dry. You support that organization that has. Abused wars all over world rather than stop them. Wow. You are brainwashed. Why did the Poles who also love their country cheer and call out his name. They loved them. Go look up alternate news sites that lie to you.

    • Rand Kocher Amen.

  15. They’re being paid by the US taxpayer to stick their fingers in their ears. Disgraceful.

    • – From day one key Democrats have been on someone(s) payroll to do nothing else but attack President Trump, and it has nothing to do with the American people.
      – What do you want the Senators to make fools of themselves and pretend that all of this corruption is in anyway real?

    • The Home Plate Special wow great answer you mean passing bills and all that.

    • Nick Jones, Ms. Lindsey, especially, is giving Schiff the extended middle-finger. The Republican Congress are morally bankrupt when it comes to this shameless president. They all reek hypocrisy.

    • Rand Kocher, I’m sorry you’ve been indoctrinated by Trump’s baseless rantings. Trump asked for Ukraine to investigate a political rival. That’s a crime whether he was offering something in exchange or not. Trump’s administration released the transcript of that call documenting the crime. Yet you somehow believe it’s all the Democrats’ fault?

    • Patricia Carson | November 14, 2019 at 8:38 PM | Reply

      Coward repubs.

  16. Charlie Hepburn | November 13, 2019 at 2:39 AM | Reply

    Children masquerading as adults pretending to be Politicians. They know what’s coming down the track so shut their eyes and hope it won’t hurt too much.

  17. The “TEA PARTY” “THE PROBLEM” enough said.

  18. It must be hard watching your future crumble right before your eyes.
    Democrats are only following the rules the GOP wrote.
    (I am so looking forward to it! The GOP death march.)

  19. GOP too scared to hear the truth. They are clearly saying that they will not do their jobs.

  20. “I’m a waiter but I won’t be waiting on tables”
    “I’m a mailman but I won’t be delivering any mail”
    “I’m a bartender but I refuse to serve drinks”
