  1. The Founders understanding of bribery was derived from English law, under which bribery was understood as an officeholder’s abuse of the power of an office to obtain a private benefit rather than for the public interest. This definition not only encompasses Trump’s conduct—it practically defines it.

    The Ukraine scandal began in the spring of 2019, with a series of contacts between Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy, and Ukrainian officials. In mid-July, Trump decided to withhold nearly $400 million in aid to Ukraine that had already been appropriated by Congress. The White House offered no explanation, except to blame “interagency delay.” A week later, Trump spoke by phone to the recently elected Ukrainian president, Zelensky. The memorandum released by the White House describing that call—which is consistent with the accounts of the whistleblower complaint that first brought this scandal to light—reads like a classic shakedown.

    According to the memo, after exchanges of flattery, Trump states that “we do a lot for Ukraine” and that “we spend a lot of effort and a lot of time,” before he complains that the relationship is not always “reciprocal.” Zelensky then raises the question of military aid to Ukraine, to which Trump immediately responds, “I would like you to do us a favor though,” and proceeds to ask Zelensky to investigate two unfounded conspiracy theories: one involving the server containing emails stolen from the DNC during the 2016 election, and the other involving the thoroughly debunked claim about then-VP Biden, his potential reelection opponent.

    Trump asks Zelensky to work with Giuliani and AG Barr to investigate his potential opponent and so aid his own reelection campaign. There can be no misunderstanding that Traitor Trump was abusing his official power in the conduct of foreign policy to get a foreign government to investigate his political rival.

    Article II, Section 4, says the president “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

    I’m also watching the impeachment hearing day 2, just waiting for the Republicans to finish their smear and lies.

    • ​@Steffly36 Even Buzzfeed had to concede that he didn’t _explicitly_ withhold aid. You really should double check with your DNC mouthpieces to get your alternative facts straight.

    • @BIG DUMMY Fist Buzz Feed is a 2nd rate news outlet that you Republicans LOVE to call” Fake News” UNLESS it benefits your agenda? Right. Now you want to use them as a source? Second I get my info from the mouths if people like Mick Mulvaney. He straight up said aid was withheld. Period. That is FACT. 2nd. Sodland who was a and I quote Trump “good man” also said aid was withheld. The fact that you even used Buzzed feed says alot on where you get your info. Dude Trump withheld that aid. I don’t care how many times you flip it, deflect it, deny it….it doesn’t change FACT. Jim Jordan on with Jake Tapper says withholding aid to fight corruption is NOT illegal so therefore Trump was legal to hold it. Your arguing something that has been proven. Wtf??

    • @BIG DUMMY buzzfeed lmao.lmao.lmao.lmao.lmao.lmao.

  3. trump just couldn’t help himself, so he gave Nancy exactly what she knew he would, reasons for his impeachment, she is a genius! 😊💙

      catalinacurio  …………….   I’ve never been a big NP fan, still not for only pushing half-measure legislation. But she has impressed in rolling out this Impeachment scenario, so far.  Emphasizing the plain BRIBERY and veering away from ‘quid pro quo’ legalese a prime example . Like Jason Johnson said; something his barber can understand and talk about .

    The whole point of Trump trying to get Ukraine to take the blame for 2016 election interference is to let Russia off the hook. What he did to the kurds helped Russia, there’s Russian troops now in that area, Turkey has brought missiles from Russia.. its all about Russia, he helping Russia out at every fking turn.

    • Reginald Finley | November 15, 2019 at 2:05 PM | Reply

      What we know for sure is that thousands have died due to this horrible decision and that Russian has benefitted.

    • 100 Correct!

      Trump and his crooked administration removing people from political positions is also a step in preparation for a complete government take over – a clear conspiracy.

      We have to try our best and save our democracy, and we’ll be voting BLUE across the board in 2020!

      @Josef you failed.

    • It as we all know trump is a Russian asset and traitor to his own country he has sold out America and other country’s to putin his master.

  5. Hmmm, I think Pelosi is the little train that could. She’s just cruising along, slowly building speed, slowly laying it all out until we all ‘I think I can’ these asshats to prison.

    • @Gabe Dudley
      never bothered reading the report, did you?
      don’t lie, you did not

    • @dan mac yes and thats why nothing happened. I didnt read the report. What would change if i did? My mind? Just a few years ago, back when i still called myself liberal, the left hated mueller. He was a currupt war hound. He still is.

    • The little train that ran off a cliff with a drunk lady onboard

  6. The Republicans are so very disappointing. Devin Nunes’ opening statement from yesterday was incredibly pathetic.

  7. It gets deeper and darker by the day!! There is no exoneration at all – he immediately, after the Mueller report is released, enters into yet another corrupt act which the GOP immediately excuse according to their infantile conspiracy theories!!

  8. “Oh, take the keys and lock Trump up, lock Trump up, lock Trump up! Oh, take the keys and lock Trump up! He’s…a…traitor!”

    • Jeff T touché!!

      CLOWN TRUMP has been spanked by pornstars, he cannot spell basic words, he speaks at a grade school level, he paints his head orange, his children loathe him, he has a Combover, he’s gone bankrupt many times, he’s a racist, he’s an UNINDICTED CO-CONSPIRATOR

  9. Isn’t it trumpian that he even bribes somebody – a country, with someone elses money – the American taxpayer. He didn’t even use his own money.

      @David Clark You are talking about Trash Heap Joe Biden?

    • Sancho Ditherson, you must be republican with name calling like Trumper is doing every day.  Trumpo is a bad influence on you.

    • Sancho, then why are republicans waiting three years to complain about biden?   Your Fox facts are wrong, it is the trumper who bribed the Ukraine for military hardware.

    • Sancho Ditherson | November 16, 2019 at 10:09 AM | Reply

      @David Clark Trash Heap Biden is on video bragging about shaking down the Ukrainian government using taxpayer dollars as leverage. You probably haven’t seen it because as a big lib you’re only allowed fake news but check it out anyway. I know you’ll still be in denial but you might might be forced to see why pounding sand will no longer work. Just go back to sleep until 2024.

  10. Speaking of bribery, that’s what Plump is doing to his KKK lackeys. Remember when Jordan, Graham, McConnell, and others HATED TRUMP? Now they are on their knees for this Mob Boss. MONEY, BLACKMAIL, AND THREAT’S

    Just imagine if Obama done this. The GOP would light torches and assemble a lynch mob.

      @dan mac Yes, but anarchist Democrats will keep pooping on the sidewalk as long as you let ’em. “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful” (Psalm 1:1, KJV). Even so, come, Lord Jesus! Establish the Kingdom in Jerusalem, and keep the world safe from Democracy!

    • @David Lafleche ya nuts

  12. Sondland thinking to himself “A million Dollars for playing ambassador is certainly not worth going to prison!”

  13. Former US Ambassador to the Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch had her life threatened by Drumpf
