  1. Wowza! Help me! I want Jerry to wear an elf costume 🙂
    Also Rudy the red nosed loser can’t even hold his own umbrella

  2. Trump is being impeached for being disloyal to the constitution and to the American values that countless men and women have fought and died for.

  3. A perfect Friday the 13th. For the rest of my days I will always consider every Friday the 13th as a Celebratory Party Day👍😂😂😂

  4. “In northwest Alaska, kunlangeta “might be applied to a man who, for example, repeatedly lies and cheats and steals things and does not go hunting, and, when the other men are out of the village, takes sexual advantage of many women.” The Inuits tacitly assume that kunlangeta is irremediable. And so, according to Murphy, the traditional Inuit approach to such a man was to insist he go hunting, and then, in the absence of witnesses, push him off the edge of the ice.”
    ― Martha Stout, The Sociopath Next Door

  5. I have this strange feeling that Moscow mitch is going to a b****… He will throw a screwdriver into the wheels of justice. Praying real hard that President Pinocchio goes away…

  6. I cant wait for the Senate hearings. Its inevitable. The Senate Republicans will exonerate a traitorous criminal.

  7. Trump: ” Ask not what you can do for your country, ask what you can do for me “

  8. Trump and his grifter family have been on a 3 year long crime spree since Trump took office.
    Jan, 2016
    Trump: “My whole life I’ve been greedy, greedy, greedy. I’ve grabbed all the money I could get. I’m so greedy.”

    Jan 9, 2016
    “Now, I’ll tell you, I’m good at that – so, you know, I’ve always taken in money,” he said at a rally in Iowa. “I like money. I’m very greedy. I’m a greedy person. I shouldn’t tell you that, I’m a greedy – I’ve always been greedy. I love money, right?

    Trump has grotesquely violated the Emolument Clause. He has clearly not divested from his businesses, and he has been caught red-handed using the Presidency to boost his own personal financial gains.

    Not only have the U.S. and foreign governments spent money at properties owned by Trump, but Trump’s own political campaign and affiliated political committees have also spent about $16.8 million at his businesses since he launched his 2016 bid, according to an analysis of federal election spending records. Trump is literally using his own campaign’s money to line his pockets with millions. It’s basically the same crime he committed with his fake charity foundation.

    Trump campaign events create a “two-fer” benefiting Trump. When he holds a fundraiser at one of his properties, not only do donors contribute to his campaign, his business collects funds from his campaign for space rental and catering, some of which ultimately ends up in his pocket. 

    48 Republican members of Congress also spent campaign money at Trump businesses through their campaign and affiliated committees, according to the center. Some of the top spenders for the 2020 cycle included campaigns for former Rep. Sean Duffy of Wisconsin ($21,000), who resigned last month, Mike Pence’s brother, Indiana Rep. Greg Pence ($14,000), Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio ($12,000) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California ($8,000).

    The most recent example of Trump’s emoluments clause violations came last year in August when a visit from Saudi officials to Trump’s Trump International Hotel in NYC helped boost the hotel’s quarterly revenue by 13% in 2018’s first quarter. The bump came after two straight years of booking declines for the property.

    Since Trump took the oath of office, the Saudi government and lobbying groups for it have been lucrative customers for Trump’s hotels. A public relations firm working for the kingdom spent nearly $270,000 on lodging at his Washington hotel through March of last year, according to filings to the Justice Department. A spokesman for the firm told The Wall Street Journal that the Trump hotel payments came as part of a Saudi-backed lobbying campaign against a bill that allowed Americans to sue foreign governments for responsibility in the Sept. 11 terror attacks..

    Attorneys general for Maryland and the District of Columbia cited the payments by the Saudi lobbying firm as an example of foreign gifts to Trump that could violate the Constitution’s ban on such “emoluments” from foreign interests.

    Fun fact: The emoluments clauses, Article I, Section 9, Clause 8, and Article II, Section 1, Clause 7, are our country’s original anti-corruption laws. They are written into the document that created our government and defined our system of laws.

    At a Cabinet meeting, Trump blamed the backlash and outrage over his attempt to profit from holding the G7 Summit at his Doral resort on “you people with this phony emoluments clause.”😲😲

    A perfect example of the utter contempt that Trump has for our Constitution, and the rule of law.

    • The FCC set up a new 3-digit national suicide prevention hotline, replacing a 10-digit one, to make it easier for people to seek help.

  9. What is this then; – a wonderful scent of Impeachment on the horizon ?

  10. And Republicans along with FOX and Friends say???

  11. you really gotta do something with that intro AD

  12. David Bogatin:
    In 1984, Soviet Army veteran David Bogatin purchased five luxury condos in Trump Tower for $6 million. The purchase was so substantial that Trump himself attended the closing. Three years later, he absconded to Austria and Poland after the discovery of his gasoline-bootlegging scheme, and his five apartments were seized by the government because he bought them to hide and launder money. In 1992, he became the first criminal returned to the US from Poland since the extradition treaty signed in 1927. A Senate investigation indicated he was a major figure in the NY Russian mafia…

    Anatoly Golubchik, Vadim Trincher and Michael Sall:
    These three individuals were convicted of taking part in an enormous illicit betting and money-laundering syndicate that ran out of Trump Tower. Each of them was a Trump condo owner, and operated out of Vadim Trincher’s Trump Tower apartment just three floors down from Trump’s penthouse. The Taiwanchik-Trincher Organization was a “nationwide criminal enterprise with strong ties to Russia and Ukraine” run by Anatoly Golubchik and Trincher, according to the Justice Department. They ran a sportsbook catering to Russian oligarchs and laundered tens of millions in proceeds through shell companies in Cyprus. Michael Sall helped them make domestic investments with the laundered capital.

    Tevfik Arif:
    Tevfik Arif was a former Soviet economist that built a chain of luxury hotels in Turkey and Kazakhstan, and a Bayrock partner involved in the Trump SoHo deal, which operated out of the 24th floor of Trump Tower NY In 2010, Arif was arrested by Turkish prosecutors and charged with setting up a prostitution ring.

    Vyacheslav Ivankov:
    Vyacheslav Ivankov implemented a money laundering scheme set up by the “boss of bosses” in the Russian mafia, Semion Mogilevich. Mogilevich arranged Ivankov’s release from a Siberian gulag, and soon afterward he went to NY where he presided over the Russian mob’s expansion in the States. He was known for torturing victims, and bragging about the murders he arranged. Ivankov was notoriously difficult to track, compared to a ghost by one FBI agent. The FBI discovered he made regular visits to the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, and was living in a luxury condo at Trump Tower. After being convicted of extortion in 1997, he was jailed for nine years and seven months. He died in 2009 at the age of 69 after being shot several times leaving a restaurant in Moscow..

  13. Trump trivializes the presidency

  14. Any Democrat that votes against impeachment needs to have a primary challenger.

  15. The limping Rudi, he should see a doctor before he goes into the White House.

  16. trump has done so many crimes ever since his started his presidential campaign.

  17. 23 I and 17 no’s 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

  18. If our national security is compromised we don’t have a country.

  19. The Chosen One May have a few more panic attacks between now and November 2020❗️👁✔️👁👌

  20. Everyone who voted “aye”, did so with their heads held high! 👍👏👏👏👏👏
