    Imagine all the sh1t we don’t know about!!!

    • LIke removing clean water protections and cutting funding to the center for disease control? Enjoy lead poisoning and coronavirus.

    • 😠 This impeachment should be done quick before the Illuminati buys someone to replace Trump. It would be the same thing all over gain. The Illuminati make planes every time they r given

      The other president should be able to talk good things about aliens 👽, say they r real and also say that they r present here without making it seem like a joke. 😡 I am being very set here.

    • Take a look in your shorts or in Schiff’s imagination.

    • “Alain Lefebvre like all of that stuff that they put in the super secret server.”……..at least they didn’t BLEACH BIT it…….right? it is amazing all the people that just DO NOT CARE how corrupt their own party is. they only care how corrupt the other party is.

  2. I would look shocked but my face has been frozen in this position for the past 3 years…😶

  3. Reading through the comments here, Vlad must be tickled pink to see al the Americans at each other’s throats now.

  4. Nixon: I’m not a crook!
    Trump: I’m a crook so what!
    Republicans: We’re all crooks so get over it!
    Putin: *”Mission Accomplished!”*

  5. ‘Vlad’ I got off, what’s next??’

  6. As soon as he is acquitted, if I were Biden, I’d be on the phone with Russia getting dirt on Trump since that is perfectly alright.

      Unfortunately Trumps defense is only about a President’s REelection. And that the President can do whatever he wants to get reelected. For any other presidential candidate normal laws apply—unless emperor Trump makes decisions that makes it harder or impossible for any opposition to get votes.

      @Håkan Bråkan Kråkan well other than the most corrupt President ever..barak Obama…

      Well, he’s a democrat, so it wouldn’t be “getting dirt”, it’d be “opposition research.”

    • That ones been done already. Obama did that in 2016.

    Bolton is a traitor when the managers contacted him to be a witness his lawyers threatened to sue them.

    Ethics? Don’t lawyers have professional standards relating to ethics which would remove them from being able to practice as lawyers for this behavior?


  10. We’re starting to look like a third world country

  11. That’s why Bolton and ” Big Pumpy” couldn’t get along!

  12. When all of this is said and done, this administration will fill a federal prison….we’ll name it the ‘trump dump’

  13. What rough beast, it’s hour come round at last, slouches towards Washington to be born?
    It’s Trump, the GOP’s chosen one!
    With apologies to Yeats

  14. Rudy doesn’t recall a whole lot that he later remembers. Funny.

  15. There was me believing that it was Russia who held trials without witnesses

    • Interesting. How do you defend the House closed door hearings? Don’t even try.

    • @Bobby K that’s so ignorant.. what don’t you understand..they were depositions help with equal #s of Dems and GOP both asking questions. you look as stupid as you probably are even bring that nonsense up

      Nope. Happens all the time in America and all over the world.

    The “Lorax” didn’t see the forest for the trees.😞

  17. Bolton’s going to take them all down

  18. “75% of voters want witnesses at impeachment trial”
    I thought Senators were supposed to represent the people, not the President

    • Where did that come from cnn

    • @Chris Canzanese That males no sense? If republicans want witnesses why would they reject having witnesses period?

    • The President has no say so in how the Senate votes. Marker & Schiff have been repeatedly staying how “Objectively Overwhelming” their case against the President is. If it’s so overwhelming, why would they need additional witnesses? The 18 witnesses the Democrats called to testified in front of the house committees suddenly don’t exist?

    • ZENSIBLE What a completely moronic and ignorant thing to say

    • Chris Canzanese | January 31, 2020 at 10:21 PM | Reply

      StarryKosmik – The Democrats have had 17 or 18 witnesses depending on how you want to put it and the Republicans had 0. Who is denying witnesses?

      They won’t even ask a question from the Senator from Kentucky. The same person who voted for the unconstitutional Obama Care that screwed over everyone who works for a living in this country.

  19. Even “JEHOVAH” had a WITNESS….LUL

  20. Schiff: “Bolton is totally not trustworthy, let’s get him in here!” CNN”Schiff is the best thing since sliced bread” even if he is incompetent.
