  1. Pompeo has basically thrown the people within the State Department to the wolves. As the Secretary of State, they are suppose to be able to look to him for leadership, and guidance, but instead, he has betrayed them for his own selfish ambitions, and for the sake of an undeserving con-man and traitor.  Pompeo should have his West Point graduation voided and stripped away from him.

    Impeachment hearings. November 13, 2019
    “You can’t promote principled anti-corruption action without pi55ing off corrupt people.”
    –George Kent, US State Dept.

    And this ladies and gentlemen is why the Honorable Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch was threatened and removed from Ukraine. Because she angered the most corrupt president in American history.

    1. Jon Nelson Putin also wants the US to remove all sanctions on Russia. I am not sure if this has happened completely, or not, but in any case, this is also what Putin wants, because the sanctions are hurting Russian economies.

    2. David J Pompeo has apparently now opened an investigation into the stalking of the ambassador Marie Yovanovitch — but it has happened only two days after the Ukrainian government opened the same type of investigation. Also, knowing the current state of this GOP, and the allegations of Pompeo’s own role in the Ukraine quid pro quo scandal, it seems like a blatantly cynical move on Pompeo’s part (ie just trying to save face, and cover for the almighty President, yet again).

  2. Trump has a long history of denying that he knows or has ever met certain people.
    Trump’s 2015 interview with host Michael Savage, Trump was asked again point-blank whether he’d ever met Putin.
    “Yes,” Trump said. “One time, yes. Long time ago.”
    “Got along with him great, by the way,” Trump added.
    “I got to know so many of the Russian leaders, the top top people in Russia,” he said.

    At a July, 2016 press conference, at the height of the general election campaign, Trump denied ever having met the Russian leader.
    “I never met Putin, I don’t know who Putin is,” he told reporters in Florida. “He said one nice thing about me. He said I’m a genius. I said, ‘Thank you very much’ to the newspaper, and that was the end of it. I never met Putin. Never spoken to him. I don’t know anything about him other than he will respect me.”

    David Letterman asked Trump in a 2013 interview if had ever met Putin.
    Trump: “Well I’ve done a lot of business with the Russians,” Trump said. “He’s a tough guy. I met him once,” said Trump.

    Feb. 17, 2016: At a rally, Trump insists he has no relationship with Putin. “I have no relationship with him other than he called me a genius,” Trump says. “He said, ‘Donald Trump is a genius, and he is going to be the leader of the party, and he’s going to be the leader of the world or something.’”

    Trump’s July 2016 interview with George  Stephanopoulos             

    STEPHANOPOULOS: “Yet you said for three years, ’13, ’14 and ’15, that you did have a relationship with Putin.”
    TRUMP: “No, look, what — what do you call a relationship? I mean he treats me…”
    STEPHANOPOULOS: “I’m asking you.”
    TRUMP: “with great respect. I have no relationship with Putin. I don’t think I’ve ever met him. I never met him. I don’t think I’ve ever met him.”
    STEPHANOPOULOS: “You would know if you did.”
    TRUMP: “I think so.”
    STEPHANOPOULOS: “I mean if he…”
    TRUMP: “Yes, I think so. So I’ve — I don’t think I’ve ever met him. I mean if he’s in the same room or something. But I don’t think so.”

    If anyone still had any doubt as to whether or not you can be believe anything that Trump says, I hope this clears everything up.

    1. @Jim Alley Maybe you are being a pessimist. The last poll I have found shows his approval rating at 45.4% and disapproval rating of 54.4%.

    2. David J I’d forgotten that Putin actually called Trump a “genius”. Guess that explains some of all this mess America’s now in, doesn’t it? ;). [PS Where would many of us be, without your great reporting, as usual? (In the dark, I guess, where Trump and Trumpists would like us all to be 😐 ]

  3. Giuliani, Parnas, Bolton, Barr, Nunes, Pompeo, Perry, Pence, Trump all need to be put on the stand. Anything less would be a travesty of justice.

    1. Coyote Creek I think we can count on the fact that Moscow Mitch will make the impeachment trial a travesty of justice. A sham. A kangaroo court. The Republicans have already made it crystal clear that they will acquit Trump. It’s unlikely that Moscow Mitch will call any witnesses that could hurt Trump or the Rethugs.

    2. @Kim Coates In 1974, the Republicans turned against Nixon, and he resigned. Those Republicans had a sense of honor and justice, but they’re long gone. The Republican party is dead. Now it’s the Trump party. Don’t expect any honor or justice from Trump’s sycophants. It’s all about the use of raw power.

  4. Well articulated Rachel, one way or the other the plaster is coming off the trump related lies, is it going to be the fast or slow way…

  5. The ones blocking are all guilty. Trump stacked the deck by the time he got put in office, to prepare for this, realizing his crimes would eventually be exposed. It just took him a little longer to get his attorney general.

    1. Deflect, muddy, act victimized and confuse is their stragey working well to deluted base the only thing that keeps these criminals going.

  6. Pompeo just as complicit in wiping tRUMP’s a*^. He and Barr’s mental gymnastics 🤸‍♀️; To divert, deceive mislead, evade, delude, manipulate, bluff, skit, betray, cheat, steal, blame, escape goat, patsy, twist and spin lies to cover up truths!! This chaotic incompetent Right administration is exhausting to witness, and so taxing on all Americans. For Pence #1 a*^ wipe (of tRUMP’s revolving door baby sitters) to say Soleimani was involved in 9/11, respectfully is so untrue. It’s astonishing to see what a man won’t do to get a seat in the Oval Office; even more profound the, ‘abuse of power’ to keep it! Know ones above the law!!!

    tRUMPers in rally’s are obvious Prop’s; Seriously no one is so ignorant to still believe tRUMP’s lies..

    1. Please, Trump doesn’t have an ‘administration’. He has a sycophantic corrupt REGIME of enablers deceiving, delaying, manipulating, exploiting, hiding…

  7. Ukraine just announced an investigation into the illegal surveillance “by unknown party” of US Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch. Guess who is doing their job. Not Bill Barr. The USA is not protecting their own people, a foreign country is. Where your morals at, USA? And another foreign country (Russia) is destroying the far from perfect but still existent democracy.

    1. @Mind Freshener I can tell from your post, You know all about the feeble minded. As they say, it takes one to know one.

    2. @whiterottenrabbit You fool, do you realize you have just admitted that Trump wants to destroy democracy? Well, thankfully the Democrats has foiled his evil plans.

  8. Lev Parnas is telling you where the bodies are and who buried them. Trump is asserting executive privilege to prevent investigators from entering the plot of land and digging up the grave site.

    1. @D SP
      I don’t know who 4chan is. Never watched it.
      I am deeply disturbed that the Globalist controlled mainstream media can peddle all their disinformation and you believe it. Choosing to think 63 million of your fellow Americans are that far off their rockers.

    2. @Scarabswarm prove? Maybe, just keep in mind he is charged with falsifying documents lol. But you can enjoy that warm fuzzy for now. Cheers

    3. @Matthew M They did have input, as you must know if you have been following the proceedings. False comparisons like this make your case even weaker.

  9. If a court ordered these documents released and trump still hasn’t released them, send armed men in to take them!

    1. @John Green Tarzan really speaks pretty good. Although if you want to get a good laugh, Google YouTube for the original Tarzan. Made back in the 1950’s.

  10. The President is supposed to be a beacon of truth above the whims of the “regular” people,he should be an irreproachable,personification of what being an American is.Trump is the exact opposite.

    1. ​@Terri Hill Obama killed thousands of brown people including hundreds of innocent civilians. He did talk good tho.

    1. @Kevin NYC Nunes was crying all over fox last month because Schiff made his calls with parnas public, said it was spying

    2. @Rafiki i am aware. first of all Schiff used his subpoena power to go after a Congressman and a reporter who are not accused of any crime. some would call that an abuse of power for political gain. But regardless – yes apparently they spoke over the phone. It is possible they did and he forgot. Again they routinely talk to hundreds of people including donors but it doesnt mean they are conspiring.

    3. @Rafiki The reason I know the Democrats have nothing is really very simple. They have already shown their hand. The articles site no crimes. If they had anything at all we would know because anything at all is better than nothing, which is what they have now.

    1. @Rich Greene learn to structure a sentence. Before you tell someone to learn too spell. I bet you’re a middle school dropout.

    2. A M [Trump:] “I never really knew my son Donald Junior. I always heard nice things about him. I think he used to live with my first ex-wife. I don’t know much about what he does. He’s been in and out of the White House a few times, doing a few things, here and there. He may have known about the Ukraine quid pro quo. I don’t know. You’d have to ask him. I never really knew this guy. He seems like a really nice guy. Looks a bit like me, they say. But I never really knew him well.”

  11. There will be no witnesses. Moscow Mitch has been well paid to make sure Trump gets a “Fair trial”. By fair Moscow Mitch means no witnesses, no evidence presented, no presentation of facts. Just a majority vote to get it over quickly so everyone can go back to the business of screwing over the Americana people.

    1. Why don’t the people revolt against this criminal potus and his disgusting tribe of traitors. Take to the streets and force the lowlifes out.

    2. Jill Heidke agreed! I was saying this all along – I am not American but if I was I would be wanting protests like the people of HK did. Hope there is a blue wave! I hope people will be kind and help people to register and help people to vote who might have difficulty with getting to the polls. Hire a bus, take people with kids and go out and vote!

    3. @Jill Heidke Not the way to go. We the People can raise the Voice of the People by calling the offices of our reps, along with our, “reps,” to convey our stance on impeachment and a fair hearing with witnesses and document evidence. We make our Voice relentless by sheer number when we ask our friends and families to do the same. US Senate 202-225-3121, US House 202-224-3121. This is our power to overcome McConnell, Graham and their flagrant Congressional malpractice.

  12. Aw Shucks…Looks like Dictator Trump is in trouble. His trial may have witnesses…..how unamerican. Seems he is loosing his absolute rule and may have to follow the constitution.

    1. Wanna bet??? I bet if Trump is acquitted, I promise to give you an atomic wedgie. Are you ready to wear your underwear around your head??? Russian bot here!!!

    2. Yeah let’s get his mother to testify too, while we’re recruiting people who are definitely gonna lie for him lol

  13. Treasonous Trump and ALL of his enablers deserve to spend the rest of their anti-American lives in PRISON – preferably GITMO!
    Lock them up!
    Lock them up!
    Lock them up!
