  1. I’ve been watching every episode of Game of Groans since 2016. Can’t wait until the final-season finale! BTW…GOP moto: “Ethics and truth be damned!”

  2. Trump used us, We the People of the United States taxpayers to get something FOR something, a thing for a thing, a quid pro quo for himself; abuse of power. He illegally withheld military funds since the funds were VOTED to be given. Throughout the summer, he (Trump) being the only one that could stop the funds for going where they were VOTED to go, Trump let it be known, by way of Giuliani, Sondland, Mulvaney that NOT until the Ukraine President started and stated that he was putting an investigation for 2016 USA election and Burisma, the Biden’s son; abuse of power, bribery.

    • @Sunniya LA this is an attempted coup. Why do you still believe the news. Do you still believe in weapons of mass destruction? Hillary is definitely going to win? That Jussie story? The crooks that have been running our nation for decades are about to be exposed and this impeachment is their last ditch effort to cover their crimes. What do you know about the Durham investigation? Is it possible that cia runs most of our media?

    • @Joshua Sander I thought someone as educated as you would know what a soft coup is. Nevermind I misjudged you.

    • @Sunniya LA I talk to everyone and try and convince them to see truth. I see people on both side acting like they are in a cult. So can you entertain the possibility that most of our media is run by the cia. Not it definitely is or isn’t. Not that it likely is or isn’t. Just is it possible? Did you know that all the news media is owned by 4 or 5 corporations? Did you see that whistle blower who had Epstein story 3 years ago but abc would not air it? Abc called cbs (where whistleblower changed to) and got them fired. The person fired may not even be the whistleblower.

    • @Mark Haddox I don’t think you have to try to convince anyone, you have your own thoughts and I won’t try to throw you off of that. The thing with me wrong, is wrong. ABC did wrong they need to be held accountable, as anyone or entity. However, this is about our President doing wrong and being wrong. This is about what our government is allowing. Integrity matters to me when I vote as well as policy. If you want to speak on a Whistleblower lets speak on the Whistleblower that went through the correct process as many other top officials have to let it be known that Trump was holding the funds (taxpayer money). This isn’t about ABC just like the National Inquire who held and still is withholding facts about Trump, even so that wouldn’t be impeachable however what is impeachable is the “favor though” and the withholding of funds.

    • @Mark Haddox “The Russian collusion/conspiracy?” There was no impeachment talk then even so the Democrats didn’t look to start one, so with that, I’m done with you. I see where your view is and trust and believe I am not going to try to convince you otherwise. It’s funny you can believe the CIA is running this however not see and accept what’s right in front of you.

  3. Republikkkans are freaking out. Nice!

  4. Trump used our taxpayer money to illegally meddle in the 2020 election

    • @Joy Phillips
      You really can’t be this stupid? Trump was using US taxpayer money to bargain a deal where he personally benefits. US aid can have strings attached. The problem is Trump wanted something for himself personally. A kick back. That is illegal.

      Makes one understand how people still support Trump. One does have to have a certain level of ignorance.

    • Literally, half of the Republican Party did.

    • @Joy Phillips Let’s see: Peace talks vs dirt on possible election opponent. Gee, can’t imagine why.

    • Yes. American taxpayer money was appropriated by Congress to help Ukraine. It is not trump’s money to personally bargain, grift, bribe, and extort with to help his crooked presidency and campaign.

    • We want this also mentioned, that Trump was using our tax money for his personal gain, during the public hearings.
      Along with being impeached, Trump and his Administration must be removed from office to save our democracy.

  5. It turns out Trump didn’t release the aid but career state department employees.

    • Apparently, Bolton ordered it released just before he resigned. He virtually disarmed Miller oops I mean ” Trump ” before he left.

  6. it still absolutely amazes me that anyone on the planet takes the man seriously whatsoever!

    He’s not just a xenophobic, misogynistic, disrespectful, hateful, bigoted, autocratic-wannabe, BULLY, he also just happens to be the most well-known Con Artist in American history!

    The name, “Trump,” is synonymous with, “Con Man,” and it’s really a not-so attractive reflection of the state of the American education system nowadays that SO many people aren’t just automatically inoculated against his BS.

    Even the most basic, fundamental critical thinking skills are effective enough to resist most of the world’s charlatans, all but the best in their, “trade.”

    And, the fact that he somehow convinces a not-insignificant number of people that he is even a, “normal,” human being, (let ALONE all the people who actually respect or even idolize him,) is just BAFFLING to me.

    The ONLY real, “silver lining,” is that we are presented with an extremely unique opportunity to learn from this experience, but it’s hardly a certainty at ALL that we will lol someday, hopefully sooner rather than later, the man will fade and eventually even disappear from the public consciousness.

    It’s a period of time that I, personally, cannot WAIT to begin to experience.

    In a way, he kind of is, “Making America Great Again,” by giving us an extremely vivid example of what to NEVER make the mistake of EVER doing again.. 😂🇺🇸

    • Wow, now that’s a brilliant argument; it almost convinced me until I read the hate barf part.

    • Gary Campbell thanks for clarifying you are full of prejudices. Definitely against basic human rights, seems like everything not in line with some christian nonsensical views of sexuality gets you pretty riled up. You think it is ok to deny a customer that walks in a public business service, because their sexual orientation is different? Because some medieval notion, from an antiquated book, says it is wrong. What if you walked in and someone said “we don’t serve your kind”, what is next? Blacks to the back of bus and segregated schools and bathrooms?

    • @Gary Campbell so for three years people have been telling you this and you still haven’t learned. Can lead a horse to water…

    • Denis Shillingford | November 14, 2019 at 12:02 AM | Reply

      @Gary Campbell 👈one of Donald Trump socially engineered with fake news medieval serf suffer of Cognitive Disassociated mindset.

  7. I’ve read 3 of the transcripts so far, but they are coming out so fast I can’t keep up while also taking care of my 3 kids. They are riveting reading though. Really a sad day for America, actually, it’s been a sad 3 years, but I’m just happy we are finally getting justice

  8. Trump is operating like he always have with his own personal business where he can use his money and resources to investigate, spread lies about people, and bully others. The sad thing is if he felt like what he was doing was so right why not let Congress know? Why all the sneaking around? Why send Giuliani who isn’t even a part of anything in the government around the country to attempt to get dirt on his political rival? Why lie about the call? What he did is wrong and no President democrat or republican should be allowed to use taxpayers dollars for their personal gain. It’s not okay.


    • Kay Luv he is mentally sick by lying to himself all his pathetic life and now he’s completely nutso!! Gone!! Space cadet!! The most rotten person alive today!

    • @Mary Lou Lee he also used to call places using a fake identity to brag about himself in third person. He needs a padded room ASAP.

  9. Live hearings coming up. 🍿🍿🍿🍿🍿🍿🍺🍺🍺

  10. The president did not pursue investigations until after the fact that Biden was indeed a political opponent

    It’s very clear of the political intent for his investigation of the Bidens

    • @Dean the Obama administration had every right to investigate candidate Trump when he made the stupidest Outburst in television history by asking the Russians to find Hillary’s emails and secondly his son had meetings with Russians to get dirt on Hillary…

      And President Trump has the same right to investigate someone who makes a political Outreach like that if they did the same it’s almost like Joe Biden asking Iran to investigate Trump

    • @Dean Russia if you’re listening I hope you can find Hillary Clinton’s emails…

      Donald Trump was at the time just a New York City businessman calling for a nation to interfere in the 2016 elections by researching and investigating the former secretary of state in the United States of America not just some candidate

    • @wolfman02 And to get the first of the Javalins!

    Drain the Swamp 2020, Vote Blue!!!

  12. The money was also released after the whistleblower report was made known to officials…

    September 9 was the whistleblower report and September 11 the money flowed

    • Wow, SEVEN months of Ukrainian blood spilled? Add to that Kurdish blood with an offer of slice of Syria? What gifts to Putin Trump made! No wonder Putin has asked Trump for his May parade. “Mr. Trump, how many hotels would you like to build in Russia?”

    • @Lana Kahl They actually said Ukraine didn’t notice????? Does anyone who collects a paycheck believe that BS?

    • Derrick Samuels | November 12, 2019 at 9:29 AM | Reply

      @newmove $400 million + dollars oh they noticed a lot.

    • That’s why Trump is so obsessed with the whistleblower! The whistleblower ruined his leverage game thus making him fail Putin and now Putin has ordered Trump to pay with someone’s blood. The whistleblower needs to stay anonymous. Screw the evil little Russian man.

    • Derrick Samuels | November 12, 2019 at 8:40 PM | Reply

      @Ben Frank Didn’t think about it like that because I kept asking myself why is the whistleblower so important to Trump. Let’s hope this isn’t nowhere near true, but Trump is a lackey for Putin that’s fact.


  14. The witnesses do not intend to smear POTUS but to point out the wrong doing of the commander-in-chief, period

  15. The Constitution says the president shall take care to faithfully execute the laws of the United States, not his own wishes and desires.

    • What’s a constitution? Seems the White House and republicans deny it exists. I guess they prefer a king/Russian mob boss.

      @Hector App HAHAHA you got that moron good!!

    • abundantYOUniverse | November 12, 2019 at 2:53 PM | Reply

      @Dean How do you keep eye contact with trump when his giant gut gets in the way? 🙂

    • Mondin von Diex | November 12, 2019 at 3:37 PM | Reply

      George B. Wolffsohn correct! This is why we usually vote for intelligent persons to lead our country!
      What a deplorable, crazy and dysfunctional disaster.

    • @Dean Republican administrations have banned more guns than the Democrats. Reagan signed the NFA and Bush Sr banned military imports. Clinton’s so called AWB wasn’t even a ban. It was a feature restriction. Take off the flash hider and put on a fixed stock, you can still buy the gun. Nothing that hadn’t already been permanently banned by Bush was banned in the AWB. Additionally, Obama’s only impact was to let the Clinton feature restriction expire. So they have actually been better for gun owners than the Republicans, who are not above lying to gun owners to manipulate them into voting for top down economics to make the rich richer and take money from the middle class.

      I am a 2A supporter and a conservative evangelical Christian. Your lies don’t help us any.

    VOTE BLUE NO MATTER WHO!!! Save the United States of America.

  17. Imagine how the families are feeling in Ukraine, that have lost loved ones, AFTER the aid was SUPPOSED to be given to Ukraine. Countries all over the world hate America, because seems like everywhere America goes, it leaves death in its wake 💀⚰

    • Yes it was a shame Obama would only provide food and blankets and Trump has supplied arms – So terrible what Obama did –

    • @Herb Oldenburg obama, thrump, bush, reagan etc..they all are part of the big usa bullies around the world and people from other counties do hate the usa because of the actions of these american war thirsty presidents, Even rome and greece had fall from their grace and powers so its easy to see and to say that the usa will be like that to of they keep on making enemys around the world. Karma doesnt sleep

    • So hard for average Americans to accept that our govt kills people for fun & profit, here & abroad. It’s like trying to conceptualize the depths of evil of the rampant pedophilia, it’s SO beyond normal human understanding as to be almost inconceivable.

  18. The President of the United States of America is a criminal. The World knows it.

    • @frizzz45 Actually, both Obama and Bill Clinton were considerably more popular worldwide than Trump and Bush. The US was held im higher esteem under their presidencies too, though Bush received a considerable bump after 9/11.

    • You might your word my friend. You watch too much MSNBC & CNN the F>N>

    • @Aiden Pham Been back to Nam lately, Pham? All capitalist now.
      I guess America won that war after all.

    • We are thoroughly alienated with this criminal —it’s like being held hostage. I am San Francisco in California, a state he can’t win.

    • @Sally F Um, Tommy, the only thing the “world” knows is what a corrupt CNN and BBC international tells them which is as bogus as the crap you are addicted to on msnbc. And Sally, do us a favor and secede from the Union. The money the rest of us taxpayers would save in freebies for illegals would be more than the foreign aid we’d have to give Mexi-fornia to keep it from starving to death.

  19. Trump ignores allies of the United States and does things that benefit our enemies. What is the Republican party doing?

    • it’s called money, party before country, party before constitution, they wantt to win with any means nessary to own the libs.
      it’s a cult

    • Denis Shillingford | November 13, 2019 at 11:57 PM | Reply

      He was helping the Russian Valdemir Putin who Putin something in him in that back room.

    When Attorneys that have been hired by Attorneys have to hire their own Attorneys, you know the $-T is about to hit the fan, HARD!

    • Particularly the attorneys who knew about the damning Ukraine transcript being stored on the secret server.

    • Richie Tattersall I actually almost feel sorry for you libs. You’re being gaslit HARD! Go read the transcript of Cooper and see what a terrible witness for the Democrats she is. This will be a bigger clown show than Mueller’s hearing!
