  1. No need for another “witch hunt”.
    The “witch” confessed.

    • @Byron Tudor silly little boy! Take your momma’s pumps off!! That’s not helping you learn to be a man! Where are your manners??

      @bigpimpdaddy69: No, it wasn’t. No witches were burned in Salem. Not in Norway either. They were innocent girls and women. All of them. The interesting lesson to be learned from the witch processes, however, is that people never learn the lesson. Think about it. Everyone knows that people hunted for witches and burned girls and women alive. But ask them why they did it and why they stopped and hardly anyone has an answer for you. Did they stop believing in Jesus? No. So what changed? They’re disinterested. Just like they’re disinterested in learning how a strong democracy like Germany could become a dictatorship. All they know or care to know, is that it could never happen in Germany and could never happen in the USA either. The fact that it did happen in Germany, is seen as something that just happened. But it didn’t just happen. Like the witch processes, it started because people didn’t educate themselves and it stopped when people did. But then they stopped caring and forgot all the details that allowed it to happen. Am I still talking about the witch processes or the Trump presidency? It really doesn’t matter.

    • @nixl Ok that’s excessive use of exclamation marks and question marks. Dont incur the wrath of the grammar god.

      Calm down, the facts won’t hurt you, it’s the lies that get you.

      @Mind Freshener no Trump’s wife did she confessed

  2. What we all suspected. The so-called “transcript” was a sanitized version calculated to make Trump look less egregious than he actually was.

    • @Bryan Hensley, the word is ‘liar’. A ‘lair’ is an animal’s abode. By the way, you ought not use your phone at all whilst driving; you should be concentrating on the road.

    • @musiclover9361 so, you can tell the Google soy boy liberals are freaking morons. Those words don’t even make sense in the sentence. You’d think a big super computer could figure this out. Even a 5 year old has more common sense than their multi billion dollar super computer. And people think artificial intelligence is going to be a threat. It can’t even compete with a child. I stopped and typed this one myself.

    • @musiclover9361 I’m a little too happy to be on here anyway. As of last night my entire hard core Democratic family has left the Democratic party. This will be the first time in 125 years or more no one in my family is democRAT. I was a democrat and voted for Obama the first term. The Democratic party has gone crazy and needs to be dismantled. I have a great feeling 2020 will go down in history as the year the Democratic party ended.

    • Your cognitive dissonance must be almost tangible.

    • @musiclover9361 this is exactly what I think about Kermit too. Glad to see you are coming around.

  3. BOOM, here comes the hurt.

    • @Bucky Pinata Oh, yes please. I was thinking of steaming a salmon and am a bit low so some extra tinfoil would be appreciated.

    • @Just Me I’ve heard an other poll and 100% of those polled thought trump was left handed, but they did say they have no first class (or firsthand) knowledge of the situation.

    • @Bryan Hensley Do you know that the majority of the bands you have on your profile are Left leaning?
      If fact most artist and creative people are… Just saying !!

    • @Willliam Fish Maddow and Schiff have a bunch ready…..

    • @Bucky Pinata Do they great, can you have them FedEx to me?

  4. Obstruction, collusion cohersion and confession.

  5. On Trump’s most recent performance evaluation, Putin gave him “Needs Improvement” in bullying third world leaders.

    • I can see the coat hangar marks on your skull

    • Don’t you get tired of being lied to?  Hillary stealing your primary?  Schiff telling people that he’d ‘seen with my own eyes’ irrefutable proof of collusion between Trump and Russia and still after 2 years Mueller found nothing.  Where is this ‘irrefutable proof’ Schiff boasted of seeing?

    • You do realize Democrats sent a letter to the Ukraine demanding investigations into Trump?, and the whistleblower didn’t witness the call

    • Rip VanDam – Bwahahaha! ♥

    • i read the full transcript it was just a friendly conversion between two people what report did you read?

  6. credible and urgent means urgent to cover up

  7. I do hope that this doesn’t take as long as the Afghan War !

    • @Danny v Come on; stop posting links to conspiracy websites.
      What next, the daily stormer??

    • Danny v ~ I just pray that the Democrats will stay strong and on course with their impeachment inquiry, the progressive liberal socialists under AOC leadership, have already declared Trump guilty and want the impeachment sent to the senate, without an impeachment inquiry even starting.😂

      I worry Pelosi, will flounder and leave wiggle room to back out of this car crash.

      Trump 2020 🇺🇸

  8. I bet the document has something to do with Russia. Trump spoke to Putin 5 days later.

  9. Whistleblower is a National Hero and will be awarded the country’s highest honours

    • @William Stall Your comment just proves what a mindless twit occupies the side of our Master of Disaster but than again, he has stated several times “I llike them dumb”! So obvious what side you are on because you truly fit the bill.

    • @Ben Chod Bolton and Coates

    • We alll know this whole thing is another deep state stunt

      Bryan Hensley you used to have balls too I presume… if it were a “lie” then why was the whistle blower delayed by Barr? if it was nothing, why not let congress see it? This complaint is old. Not only is it old but the Grand Supreme Orange has already admitted to it… so… there’s that. And because you used to be a democrat, I would like to know what day exactly you decided not to have a brain?

    • So, there’s something besides slander and innuendo behind this call for impeachment?  Y’all got nothing even approaching impeachable.

  10. the call was 33 minutes long, I read slower than I speak and I read that in well under 6 minutes… something is missing

  11. Thanks Jackie. This is obviously not the plate of cookies Don served up to us. But what we now have is a conspiracy betwern Don, Bill, and the justice boys.

  12. No matter how bad eh crime, it’s always the cover-up that kills you.

    • You do realize Democrats sent a letter to the Ukraine demanding investigations into Trump?,the whistleblower didn’t witness the call

      Richard Barber  ……………   Attempting to hide ( cover up ) the transcripts in the super-secret coded electronic intelligence file is evidence of obstruction with intent . trump is too stupid to do that on his own, so there are countless more that will be spending some time in Club Fed !  “Everything trump Touches Dies”, hoisted by their own petards !

  13. ok… starting to let myself get a little excited…

    • you should. biden confessed on camera about this whole thing on camera in front of the u.n. months ago thats old news. also the report really had nothing to do with biden. he was just a foot note and trump didnt do anything that can impeach him for in the report. its another loss for the dems

    • @Jade Fire #BotFail

    • @itgetter9 what do you mean? i just stated the facts.

    • @Jade Fire Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, definitely. I fully support that. However, BOTH sides of this argument need to remember, this matter is far beyond comments. This is an official investigation. I appreciate seeing a comment that isn’t simply insulting the other side, so that is fantastic! You are rare! Because of that, I wanted to give you a heads up in this sense:

      This has incredible parallels to Nixon when impeachment was considered. His overall popularity was practically the same at around 30-40%, with his own party support being far higher at 70-80%. After *all* of the facts were made known, people were outraged. You believe he hasn’t done anything wrong, but what if these accusations are true? Confirmation bias may be shrouding you from seeing a serious security issue to the citizens of the United States. Instead of having a very polarized opinion of he hasn’t done anything wrong, perhaps assume he has done at least one thing wrong, as is far statistically likely as EVERY president has done something truly morally wrong. If so, what in your opinion is most likely? Just consider it for a bit. I’m not telling you to change your overall support of Trump, but no one is capable of “doing no wrong”. What, therefore, is his wrong doing?

  14. “Describe that complaint as nothing short of explosive” – music to my ears!

  15. There is a proverb which says the days of a thief is forty days.. Now the days of Pres. Trump are numbered.

    • You do realize Democrats sent a letter to the Ukraine demanding investigations into Trump and the whistleblower didn’t witness the call, you have the attention span of a gold fish

  16. I can see it now-

    Judge: How do you plead?
    Trump: But, but, Hillary.

    • Pierre Toussaint | September 27, 2019 at 5:03 AM | Reply

      @Ash Roskell they always bringing up everything about Democrats but they haven’t proven one thing because if they could the Democrats would be in jail and that’s fact Trump’s always talking about Hillary and Obama illegal activity they’ve done you got the DOJ they do everything else for him and you can tell these fools are stupid because they’ll come on defending Trump and he contradicts them every time and their still stupid enough to defend him so you see what you’re dealing with complete idiots

    • More like trump: youre fired

    • @SPZ Aruba the terms people like all of you guys are the problem. youre not progressive so you dont like progress weird or you hate liberals so you hate liberty? Politics really diluted these terms

    • @Estrada603 Progressives are hard core socialists and communists. Resource miners. I am a capitalist. A resource farmer able to maintain a standard for a long time.

  17. IMPEACH traitor Trump NOW!

    • You do realize Democrats sent a letter to the Ukraine demanding investigations into Trump and the whistleblower didn’t witness the call you have the attention span of a gold fish

    • biden confessed on camera about this whole thing on camera in front of the u.n. months ago thats old news also the report really had nothing to do with biden. he was just a foot note and trump didnt do anything that can can impeach him for in the report.

    • Go screw yourself

  18. Jackie Speier is a badass.

  19. Dear Mr Whistleblower, you will go down in history as a superhero 🦸‍♂️Thank you for saving us all! The bravest person in America! 😘

    • also biden confessed on camera about this whole thing on camera in front of the u.n. months ago thats old news also the report really had nothing to do with biden. he was just a foot note and trump didnt do anything that can can impeach him for in the report.

    • Jade Fire not a confession but a statement. Biden was openly representing the West not his own private interests. Big difference.

    • @Jade Fire Biden was representing Official policy , along with just about every other western nation, and the IMF, thats the international monetary fund , cos i know you are too stupid to know this. Also, a) the prosecutor in Ukraine was removed by the Ukraine parliment b) the company Biden’s son worked for , had been investigated years before, the case was closed as no wrongdoing was found to have taken place. Instead of spouting conspiracy theories, do some research with an open mind if you want the truth

    • BigBadLoneWolf open mind? he was on camera confessing to this exact thing.

  20. I hope Barr and Giuliani go down in flames with him.
