  1. Don’t know about you all, but I prefer presidents who don’t risk national security to pursue crackpot Rudy’s insane theories because he’s afraid he’ll lose an election without foreign help again. 😆😅

    • Gypsy_Spirit I bet you watch cnn and msnbc, and you talk about spreading lies and Propaganda? What a joke.

      @Dan McFarland so as a russian sanctioned trump troll, is your workspace located in your mom’s basement or is it in the WH basement?

    • None of the democratic contenders are even worth that. Biden? Biden? Seriously? I can’t believe anyone would believed he was/is a threat. LMBO!!! C’mon on now.

  2. Oh, really Republitards? Now you want things handled “behind the scenes”? LMAO. Corrupt idiots the lot.

    • Talk about a “Swinging Door” political strategy! Gross hypocrisy in full display.

    • They always wanted everything behind scenes. Get energy contracts in Ukraine. Get the threat of investigations against Trump’s enemies. Get Russian sanctions lifted. Hence, insult the news media, fire anyone in the way, demean and insult to distract. Heck, even the supposed attempt to buy Greenland was to distract everyone from the shadow efforts of Trump’s people.

  3. Ah Donald Trump is about to be destroyed by the “power of emails”.

    Karma truly couldn’t have picked a more fitting way to punish him.

      Marc Emson well maybe not karma, but I could think of a few ideal punishments.

    • Wow be careful how you treat others because what goes around comes around comes around….

    • Ukraine is indicting the head of Burisma and new reports are surfacing, which will have a direct impact on impeachment hearings. During a Wednesday press conference, Dubinsky claimed“The son of Vice-President Joe Biden was receiving payment for his services, with money raised through criminal means and money laundering,” “Biden received money that did not come from the company’s successful operation but rather from money stolen from citizens.” Zlochevsky helmed a money laundering operation which included politicians from the previous Yanukovich administration who continued their criminal enterprise under his successor President Pyotr Poroshenko. Which is a financial pyramid scheme that was created in Ukraine and developed by everyone beginning with Yanukovich and later by Poroshenko This system is still working under the guidance of the current managerial board of the National Bank, ensuring that money flows in the interest of people who stole millions of dollars, took it offshore and bought Ukrainian public bonds turning them into the Ukrainian sovereign debt.” Derkach then demanded that President Trump must get involved in rooting out the corrupt Democrat-Ukraine network. “President Zelensky must pick up the phone, dial Trump, ask for help and cooperation in the fight against corruption and fly to Washington,” Derkach demanded. “The issue of combating international corruption in Ukraine with the participation of citizens, businessmen and U.S. officials should become key during the meeting of the two presidents.” As reported, Joe Biden openly admitted to extorting the Ukraine government if it didn’t squash an investigation into his son Hunter’s involvement with Burisma Holdings. Looks like Trump asking President Zelensky to look into Biden-Burisma corruption wasn’t without merit after all. The head of Burisma Holdings, the energy company on which Hunter Biden served on the board, has been indicted by Ukraine’s Office of the Prosecutor General for money laundering and corruption, according to Ukrainian MP Alexander Dubinsky. At the same press conference, Ukrainian MP Andriy Derkach claimed that the family of ex-President Yanukovich funneled $7.4 billion through American investment firm Franklin Templeton Investments, which they tied to the U.S. Democratic Party. “Last week, November 14, the Prosecutor General’s Office (PGO), unnoticed by the media, announced a new suspicion to the notorious owner of Burisma. Looks like Trump asking President Zelensky to look into Biden-Burisma corruption wasn’t without merit after all. A retired CIA officer told the Washington Examiner, “From everything we know about the whistleblower and his work in the executive branch then, there is absolutely no doubt he would have been working with Biden when he was vice president.

  4. Wait. After all the complaining about the inquiry being held behind closed doors, and now that info is out in the open, they want it handled behind closed doors? 🤔

    • @Hobgoblin Hollow : No, I don’t feel foolish. I am interested to hear evidence from witnesses to the situation that has given rise to this inquiry. There’s a big refrigerator for republican snowflakes who are finding the heat being generated a little uncomfortable. Maybe you need to take your comfort there. It’s called Fox News. The spluttered invective and blather of the likes of Carlson and Hannity will likely have a temporary palliative effect you appear to be in need of.
      You seem to be struggling with MSNBCs role here. I.e. … a conduit that provides the opportunity to observe current events.
      I happen to think the testimony of people like Fiona Hill, a leading expert on Russia who has worked alongside Trump for almost all of the current term is relevant, and I appreciate the fact that unlike Fox, there are some channels that will live stream all testimony and supplement it with analysis and context inviting opinion from well qualified observers such as political historians, specialist constitutional lawyers and political observers with decades long careers who know their stuff.
      Commenters such as yourself are of course free to hold evidence and testimony given under oath in dispute and offer ” alternative facts ” but all we seem to get from you are snide remarks.
      Meaningless sniping from the sidelines as your preferred narrative, such as it may be, is increasingly mired in lies and contradictions, impotent against it’s inexorable slide into obscurity.

      @hpqz so you switched to RT? I guess that’s as unbiased as it gets😉

    • Yup that’s what the democrats want!

    It happened; it’s the truth and it’s impeachable. So…
    “Get over it”.

    • @portfishington the media is not spinning lies. The memo released says it all…..”I would like you to do us a favor though”. Add the fact that it had been looked into……add to THAT that the Trump family has absolutely NO leg to stand on when discussing “profiting from your father’s name/position”. Talk about nepotism! Exactly how are Ivanka and Jared qualified to be “presidential advisors”? The abuse of the emoluments clause by the Donald is, in my opinion, enough to impeach him. Especially after he declared…..on national TV no less.
      ….that it was “the phony emoluments clause”. Just listen to the Donald, really listen to what he is saying. Not his blustery self defense rhetoric but all the lies and contradictory statements that he states are true……one time he contradicted himself within the hour. He truly, truly is a narcissist with absolutely no honor.

      @Monica Corona more biased crap… I watched Live and without commentary so as to not be infected with impressions of how anyone feels.

    “Would be better behind closed doors”
    Didn’t they storm the proceedings for not being public?! They’re getting what they wanted !

  7. Mitch McConnell is “Kentucky’s Bribed Chicken”.

    I’m guessing the Trumpists just lost interest in examining leaked emails.

    • Andrew Mitchell | November 22, 2019 at 2:54 AM | Reply

      @JamesWInGermany We are hearing it first hand from eye witnesses. So that makes you another liar. Why do Trump Sheeples turn up and just flat out lie?

    • Andrew Mitchell | November 22, 2019 at 2:57 AM | Reply

      @JamesWInGermany I have no idea how your post here relates to anything I said. I can only assume you are high on drugs. As conversing with people living in an alternate reality has no value I will block you.

    • JamesWInGermany | November 22, 2019 at 3:34 AM | Reply

      @Andrew Mitchell projection doesn’t work anymore. You know exactly what I am saying.

  9. Anyone’s head hurting from listening to all the rubbish coming out of the President’s own head?

  10. This whole administration is a bunch of clowns, the worst on record.

  11. Donald Trump testifying is as funny as Donald Trump being not guilty.

    • @Tom Campbell Junior? You don’t know who you’re talking to. Don’t preach to me about being honest. I have eyes and ears and a very high functioning brain and I can obviously see Trump is a criminal. You on the other hand have been fooled by the dumbest man alive so spare me your words of wisdom.

      @Sempi10 Can you shoot me a link on that because I went back and couldn’t find it.

    • call me Ishmael | November 23, 2019 at 5:19 AM | Reply

      @Sempi10 Did you see the bit about the phone call? I think it proves most plus Mulvany admitted on live tv it was a quid pro quo, happens all the time get over it remember that?

    • call me Ishmael | November 23, 2019 at 5:21 AM | Reply

      @Sempi10 sorry I couldn’t respond yesterday I was busy with work, however, the fact the aid wasn’t released until the whistle blower went to congress pretty much says it all

  12. He used emails to take down Hillary, and now he’s about to be taken down by emails……
    Oh the irony of it all!

  13. Jennifer Creecy | November 19, 2019 at 4:00 PM | Reply

    Bet the Republicans wish it was still behind closed doors now.

    • Jennifer Creecy it’s funny how trump talking about Mexican

    • Gina Ke I think you could search for eternity without uncovering any, because there isn’t any. He would clearly shaft Ivana to save himself.

    • Jennifer Creecy when trump campaigns how he talking how all immigrants Mexican sending rapists criminals drug dealers to the United States butt it’s trump big gang corrupt criminals liars in White House

    • I guess time will tell!! Imagine if this much time and money was being waisted on any Democrat or Republican President or high ranking official!??!! The U.S would go bankrupt,, they’re all crooked and point fingers at the next!! And most of them can be bribed because they don’t have deep pockets like Trump!!

  14. Republicans always like to operate behind doors or leave doors open for their escape.

  15. Since Moscow Mitch has a ton of bills passed by the House sitting on his desk, he has plenty of work to do. What’s the hold-up Mitch?

  16. Stephen Woodward | November 20, 2019 at 12:05 PM | Reply

    People tend to forget, Sondland has more money than Trump, so he’s not going to be intimidated by a guy who lies about his wealth and doesn’t pay his taxes.

  17. 300 untouched bills on his desk and he’s worried about getting nothing done .IMFAO !

  18. Trump doesn’t care because he has something wrong with his brain it’s a Criminal one he can’t help himself!!!!!

  19. Trump is like a mob boss he thinks his word is golden because he’s got the job of the president lock Em Up

    Well, I guess that “behind the scenes” doesn’t apply to the anonymity of the whistle blower?? 🤦‍♀️
