  1. Republicans are the enemy of America, enough is enough.

      *Vote out these vulnerable GOP Senators!* Collins (ME), Gardner (CO), McSally (AZ), Tillis (NC), Ernst (IA)
      If the Democrats gain these seats, and lose only Doug Jones (AL), the Dems will have the majority in the Senate.

      While Dem constituents sit idle.

      Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!

      You should be a comedian!!!!


  2. Trump tweet:
    “Congratulations to Attorney General Bill Barr for taking charge of a case that was totally out  of control and perhaps should not have even been brought. Evidence now clearly shows that the Mueller Scam was improperly brought & tainted. Even Bob Mueller lied to Congress!”
    –Trump,  Feb 12, 2020

    If I were Robert Mueller, I would definitely sue Trump for defamation. Mr. Mueller never lied to Congress, and there’s no way that Trump can prove that he did.  This would be an easy and quick defamation lawsuit. Mueller could take millions from Trump, plus force Trump to admit for the public record, that he lied.

    In 2007, Trump sued reporter, Tim O’Brien and Warner Books for 5 billion dollars. In 2009, a judge dismissed Trump’s case against O’Brien. Trump appealed, but in 2011 that was denied, too. Trump accused O’Brien of being reckless and dishonest in a book that raised questions about Trump’s net worth. The reporter’s attorneys turned the tables on Trump, and brought Trump in for a deposition. During the deposition on Dec.19 and 20, 2007, Trump was caught lying at least 30 times.

    Trump had to acknowledge 30 times during that deposition that he had lied over the years about a wide range of issues: his ownership stake in a large Manhattan real estate development, the cost of a membership to one of his golf clubs, the size of the Trump Organization, his wealth, the rate for his speaking appearances, how many condos he had sold, the debt he owed, and whether he borrowed money from his family to stave off personal bankruptcy.”

    The lies Trump told were unstrategic, needless, highly specific, and easy to disprove. When he was caught lying, Trump sometimes blamed others for the error or explained that the untrue thing really was true,  at least in his mind. Trump’s lying deposition is now a part of the public record.

    This is a perfect example of why Trump’s lawyers never permitted Trump to be interviewed by Mueller. They know that Trump is morally and pathologically incapable of telling the truth, about anything..

  4. Representative Maloney is absolutely correct.

    • @Zeno of Citium I can actually do something about Tillis. The others I have to depend on the common sense of others. They definitely all need to go.

      @Demond Kemp – Fantastic! I wish I lived in one of these states, I would vote against these jokers in a hurry. People are so focus on voting for president, they are missing the importance of winning the Senate.

    • @Zeno of Citium And it seems Americans always do that. They don’t understand the importance of who holds the gavels in the Senate and House committees. They should now. One thing about Trump’s blatant lawlessness, he absolutely brought attention to these facts. If the people of Kentucky went for a Democratic governor. Moscow Mitch might be in trouble over there too.

    • There are 23 seats currently held by Republicans that are up for grabs in the 2020 election. Primaries for these seats are held between March and June to determine who the blue challenger will be, except Arizona’s McSally, who challenger is already determined (Mark Kelly). Here’s the game plan: 70 million people voted against trump in 2016. If all 70 million donate just $1 to each of the 23 challenging Senate campaigns, then for a $23 investment from each of us, they each get a $70 million war chest to crush their red opponent. We can do this!

  5. Wow the Senate Republicans might start doing their job! Better if they don’t so the people will give them the boot!#!#! Bye Lindsey. Bye Mitch. Maybe you can start your own private scam!#!#!

      @Zeno of Citium …please don’t leave out Lamar Alexander ( TN)…..He has to go too…

    • Zeno of Citium | February 13, 2020 at 1:47 AM | Reply

      @Magnolia Mississippi – Unfortunately, Tennessee is a DEEP red state. So, not really a focus, but YES, please…vote against ALL GOP senators.

    • Magnolia Mississippi | February 13, 2020 at 5:13 AM | Reply

      @Zeno of Citium Maybe be So but I have live in Tennessee and very familiar with that state but if people get out vote anything is possible…. Just need alot of organization.helping people getting out to vote and it could be a big and huge turn out….🤔🤔🤔🤔

  7. The worst senators are the ones who voted against witnesses and removal and then condemned his actions as wrong or inappropriate. Judgement comes in November.

    The republicans acquitted trump and now he could do whatever he wants.
    Trump is above the law now .
    If you speak against trump and he will get you back.

  9. You forget sir Lindsey GRAHAM!, and tge rest of the Republicans!

    TRUMP i s a dangerous to the free speech, to the society, to the Democracy!

    Who will STOP him?! This is the question we should be worried about….

  10. The Fourth Reich is on the rise.
    Shame on you America.

    • Hopsta
      actually.. that Shame solely belongs to cult45 & their corrupt cult leader.. ✊🌏💙💯in Solidarity! #PatrioticAmericans

    • @autumn rain i think that shame lies with the citizens united decision. We wouldnt be here if big money wasn’t allowed to infest this system.
      Then the dumbasses that thought: “oh a reality tv star thats gone bankrupt 6 times and brags about grabbing pu**y’s? Yep, thats a leader!”

    • We will not shame America this November. Blue is the New Color of Power. We got this!🌊

    • Republican voters and Congressional enablers would have followed Hitler just as much as they follow Trump!!!! Welcome to Nazi America!!!!

  11. The Republican party has become the Snowflake party. Bowing in cowardice to this orange cancer rotting America. Does the toddler-in-chief really have that much dirt on the ENTIRE party?! Just how corrupt are they all??! Skeletons must be literally falling out of their closets at the mango morons feet. I also hear the janitorial staff can’t keep brooms in stock because Republicans keep taking them to replace their spines.

    • Peter Dragon CHECK THEIR BANK ACCOUNTS….there is only one thing make people act this way….come on Dems do something!!

  12. Stop talking about accountability and hold him accountable. Stop talking the talk and not walking the walk.

      Ha! What have YOU done? Post comments on YouTube??

      LMFAO that’s what you did when our sons and daughters were coming home by the thousands in flag draped coffins.


    • @Dawn Oceanside I spent 20 years in the military defending this country. Trump and the people he surrounds himself with are destroying what everyday Americans have given their lives to build. I not only have the right to post comments on You Tube but defended your right to do so as well. I also watched as my fellow soldiers and sailors gave their lives to protect the rights of everyone in this country even those of you that accuse others of not participating.

    • @tony : Well, brother, Congress did what it could. It’s up to us now. November, if we can get there, can be his day of reckoning.

    • @Dawn Oceanside trump is your enemy not tony. what tony is doing is exactly what you fought for. He has the freedom to add his voice to the millions of people who recognize trump as a treath to the country . Most people can’t do anything except voice their opinion. Tony is asking the people who can force trump out to work hard to do so.

  13. Pure corruption in the white house, and these coward Republicans know this. Yes we the people of America have to go out and vote Trump out. Stand up for Justice.

  14. Republicans had 5he Chance to stand up and take charge. They failed.

  15. Preach Maloney! Like to see more Democrats find the stones to speak out. The Republicans’ stones can be found in Mitch McGoiter’s neck folds.

    But he also should have been speaking up during the impeachment hearing every chance he got… Senators don’t need to wait, they need to speak up!

  17. two faced craven GOP senators all need to get voted out of office!

  18. Mignon Simpson | February 13, 2020 at 2:02 AM | Reply

    The good Germans did the same. They kept silent and refused to know.

  19. GOP: Russia’s Ally.
