    Now that Trump has moved the Wall to Colorado, does that mean Mexico also has to pay the transportation costs?

  2. So when Trump says he needs Republican’s “get with the program” he means “get into the lying, denying, and exaggeration mode”?

    Attack the process when you can’t defend the actions…

    • @John Nix “Russian if you’re listening, find Hilary’s email.”. And, they were cause that same day, they hacked the DNC. Trump tower meeting he knew about and tried to cover for his son. I could go on and on, but why attempt to obstruct justice 11 times if there is nothing to hide? Why not just stay quiet, cooperate and let facts win the day. Unless the facts make you look guilty.

    • @John Nix or how about the Stephanopoulos interview where he admitted he would not follow the law when a foreign power offered him dirt. “No one calls the FBI…”. Yet the FBI had gotten multiple reports from other campaigns in the past.

    • @UC_4mZwuzSJAqZKR9OQ9EuTg see this is whataboutism. You can’t defend the subject at hand so you deflect. You assumed again, in I support what she did. I don’t. I did not vote for her due to how shady she is. But, Bush’s sec of state also used a private server and if you actually did some research, you’d find more than a few were used throughout previous administrations. Dem and Rep. So that’s a moot point, if you’re unwilling to call out all instances of the action and just focus on one side you will always lose the argument. Also, everything after that is conspiracy, I would bet brietbart, one news network are your source, since everything you just spouted is wishful thinking and echo chamber nonsense. Show the proof or drop it. Trump will be impeached, question is, will he be removed by the Senate.

    • @UC_4mZwuzSJAqZKR9OQ9EuTg also, your Trump doj just cleared Hilary for her server usage. But since that goes against the narrative in your echo chamber you must have missed that.

  4. If there is nothing to hide why try and stop the hearings.

  5. Laughable Lindsey is a buffoon. I’m so glad that he is involved because his bungling lunacy will only make it worse for Trump.

  6. They never had any ‘options’ to begin with. This is all just a big publicity stunt for the GOP.

      Yes! They are writhing with desperation. The goose is cooked, they cannot uncook it

    • I agree, but I have a hard time calling it a publicity stunt because it’s really just business as usual for them. Obstructing justice, circumventing the will of the people, choosing the short term benefit of the party over the long term benefit of the country , etc., is all just another day at the office for them.

      For their Dictator leader!!!! Sad for America

  7. Trump’s allies are not running low they are low period

  8. Matt Gaetz: “Did we do good daddy Donny?”

  9. Well America it’s up to us to show D.C. we’re not interested in another 4 years of Trump or their BS.

    The GOPs are whining about close door hearing when they are the one who created that rule during Obama in 2015 by John B. Controlled by GOPs.

    • Wally Davidson | October 24, 2019 at 10:28 PM | Reply

      @bubba luv “Overall, in the final year of Obama’s administration, people who asked for records last year under the law received censored files or nothing in 77 percent of requests, about the same as the previous year.”

    • @Wally Davidson Please cite your source. Given that trump hasn’t turned over anything and has attempted to block everything….you seem to be doing Republican math.

    • @Wally Davidson Wally, you made that up, didn’t you? You rascal! Tell us, please, how anything Obama or anything any other president ever did exonerates mr. trump for his lies, crimes, ignorance, and nefarious activities. About WHAT has mr. trump “more truthful?” A long list of verifiable true stuff he really said would be so cool.

    • Rethugliklans don’t like the rules when it’s not in their favor. They didn’t think Dems would win the House again.

    that attack on the process is a Fascist move matt gates is the face of Trump’s fascist guard!

  12. Lindsey Graham once said impeachment of a president is to restore integrity, honor and honesty.

  13. It’s almost like Republicans don’t understand how recorded video works.

    • @snapdragonfly66 – that’s just what people in a cult are like.

    • @Full English This is what happens when you have total control of the information you see day in and day out. They are scared to look outside of their echo chamber and see that the reality they wishing for does not match the reality that is. That’s what an echo chamber is, the ability to deny reality, by omission, of all things that tear down their wishful view of reality. And before any of you Repubs claim I have my own echo chamber, I watched live, Judge Napalitano tell Fox and Friends that their own Republican party in 2015 created the rules being used by the current House. No changes where made, even when Fox and Friends tried to still argue the democrats had, the Judge again corrected them. While I don’t agree with Judge politics, but I have a ton of respect him because he’s not afraid to speak truth to power, even when they are in the same republican party.

    • I actually appreciate old school republican conservatism. But this is just garbage. Republicans have lost all their integrity man. Closed door meeting are protocol and is a non partisan rule.

  14. So, the GOP is mad that the Dems are using GOP rules and processes which were established for Benghazi investigations (GOP led) in 2015, by Trey Goudy, Pompeo, Graham, etc….

    • Michael B
      To add salt to the injury, the Republicans have found nothing on the Benghazi investigation. While for Trump, many of his associates are in jail, and many Republicans are involved with the corruption.

  15. Oh, sit down Lindsey..just stay out of the way..this is just an inquiry..

  16. Why are they not locked up for the security breach?

  17. Republicans don’t like their own law but it was perfect 4 years ago and now it’s a scam haha! Wtf

  18. Jim Jordan’s brain is missing, must be with his jacket

  19. If a citizens stormed a court room. Those citizens would of been arrested.

    • @Trump Fan Network 2 I got a simple test, and I already know that you will lie to yourself and everyone in public in your answer to it. Take Repubs out of the accusation and put in Dem’s. If you feel that it would be wrong for Dem’s to storm the Benghazi closed sessions, and not for Repubs, actually doing it, then you’re full of BS and do not care about the Constitution or the rule of law. Btw, the House rules that allow them to have closed sessions was enacted by Repubs in the House with a majority, not minority, for the Benghazi hearings (all 7 of them that found nothing). This is how Partisan politics screws everyone, United we Stand, Divided we fall, and it appears Putin took that to heart and is using it to defeat the USA by dividing us into mindless drones on both sides. “Wars are not just fought with Bullets, the most effective ones are won without a single drop of blood.” – paraphrased Sun Tzu

      They should have been Tased, then arrested!

    • @John De Prendergast and then tased some more for good measure. And then stripped of their security clearances they might have.

    • Kathleen Austin | October 25, 2019 at 9:07 AM | Reply

      Time for all citizens to vote them out! Get on social media to save America!!!! It’s serious !!!😱

    • Thats the problem get off of social network and attend some”Civic LAW” classes and learn DE’JURE LAW and away from de’facto law.

  20. Lindsey had a friend John McCain and he turned his back on him, Lindsey is a coward
