  1. I wonder if he brought the pee pee tape and the dirt they obviously have on the rest of them just to remind them why they have to tow the line.

      We’ve all be waiting for the indisputable evidence Schiff has promised. For 3 YEARS, the only thing so far is Ed Buck’s relationship with Schiff and the whole Standard Hotel … let’s say abnormalities.

    • contract for trump Moscow hotel and spa in one hand, poison pen in the other. you’d better believe it.

    • @oldrrocr

      and a Penthouse for putin in Trump Moscow…

    Trump is a real traitor

  3. G = Government
    O = Of
    P = Putin 🇷🇺

  4. They should have bugged the room this is disturbing 😡

      There is a law regarding Presidential papers and records which mandates a stenographer is present taking notes during meetings with foreign dignitaries. Unfortunately didn’t follow that law when meeting with Putin and I would bet there is no stenographer in the meeting between Drumpf and Lavrov. High crimes continue to occur in the WH.

    • @Carolyn Foster Trump does that a lot. One guy was in a meeting in Oval, Trump seen him and screamed what are you doing, taking notes…..Trump said you know I don’t like note takers.

    • Trumps Russian “friend “ probably bugged Dirty Dons Oval Office

    • @DAVE D No, surely not. It would be much easier for enemies of the USA to bribe a cleaner or a technician and I’m sure the Oval Office must be regularly swept for bugs. (The Ritz-Carlton hotel in Moscow on November 8, 2013, when Mr Trump stayed, was probably not swept for bugs.)

    Only explanation is that Trump is a Russian spy!

  6. Unfu*ckin’ believable!!! Just f’n crazy…

  7. Lavrov is there to make sure that don the con doesn’t flip on Putin… or blow all their secret agreements.

  8. Trump is colluding and plotting with America’s enemy in plain view. It’s Trump’s way of giving America the middle finger.

    • @Gray Shus Excellent comment.

      @Brett Nine broken glass at a store front property late at night is “evidence” of a break in. NOT PROOF but “evidence.” A VP’s son receiving tens of thousands of dollars a month for a job in a country he does not speak the language nor has any experience in the industry is certainly “evidence” of malfeasance. The son’s VP father getting the prosecutor of said country looking into malfeasance at the company his son works for is evidence of malfeasance. Especially since the VP father threatened to withhold a billion dollars in aid to said country if they did not fire said prosecutor. The attainment of the job in the first place is suspicious, just as the broken store front glass. The firing of said prosecutor at the behest of said son’s VP father is evidence of malfeasance. The fact that the prosecutor did not finish the investigation is NOT exoneration of either the VP or the son but you leftist pukes decide to believe it is. Ukraine was so corrupt, their current president won the election by running an anti corruption campaign. further evidence of malfeasance of both administrations, our and theirs. Ancillary, “evidence” also abounds so the current administration decided to investigate it as there is “evidence” the previous corrupt Ukrainian government sought to aid HRC in 2016. I know, I know. you really do not seek “evidence.” You seek lies. Now, the dems efforts (via this sham impeachment) to thwart said investigation by the president is “evidence” of obstruction of justice and abuse of power. The identical charge they accuse the president with. Go figure!

    • @Brett Nine , Here is one article, you will find more if you care. TRUMP knew the DEMOCRATS were in on the governmental corruption in Ukraine. He wanted them and the new president to weed it out. I’m telling ya, there’s greed everywhere. There’s stuff on Graham and McCain also. More to come on that.

  9. Lavrov was just dropping off another pair of putin’s boots for drumpf to spit shine.

    • I like the picture of Lavarov and Crooked Hillary, laughing, pressing a big RED reset button. Pathetic DEMOCRATS and their PROJECTION.

    • @Dave Schultz You must be the grandson of sergeant Schultz?
      Same IQ ?

    • @Arden McConnell Just a thought. If I were offering huge bribes, I would think about personal money, funneled through layers of shell companies, which provide loans and sell services to each other, preferably based in different administrations. (Edit: I’m not suggesting that any politician would accept this sort of thing.)

    • @Dave Schultz Look, it’s absolutely understandable that you’re embarrassed, comrade but you’re wrong.

    • Arden McConnell | December 11, 2019 at 5:31 PM | Reply

      @Mitch Pynn The bribe transporting sound probable, however I figured Lavrov was the bag man to drop off more campaign to some of the Senators assuring their vote against impeaching.

  10. “One day comrade when you have shown yourself worthy of the mother country Russia, we will look into erasing the pee-pee tape. Until then comrade keep up the good work and you will get your tower”.

  11. Put!n: who needs to recruit a traitor if u have an imbecile for a president u can use anytime?

    What a shame!!

    To add insult on the injury, people are actually celebrating this.

  12. It is shocking how many Republicans see Russia as an ally

    • @Crystal Giddens Everything is hilarious to you, apparently, which is most likely why you are psychotic. You have a hard time relating to other people, except if it is during a discussion about a pro Trump bumper sticker.

      Just think about it; you support a President who forced himself on at least 17 women. Who had Epstein at Trump Tower multiple times and at Trump’s resort in Florida. You know, the place where the President goes to work hard at the problems facing the nation…… and play golf.

      You let him weave his disingenuous and duplicitous statements and then make up the true meaning after the fact. You are psychotic.

      Take care.

    • @Crystal Giddens you do realize Trump used to walk in on naked 14-16 year olds and flirt during his time running beauty pageants, he bragged about walking in on them on camera too. You also have one of Epsteins slaves who was recruited at Mar A Lago when she was 14. She wasn’t a member, so why was she at Trumps club looking for a sugar daddy? Why don’t you work on your President who settled out of court in the 90s for raping a 14 year old? These are all reports that came from the victims or the president himself…😂😂😂

  13. The GOP is clearly playing for the wrong team. Why else are they pushing putins propaganda

  14. America face it, Trump is unfit for office

    • @snoop alert so you agree Trump giving a Wall Street bailout was not for the people? Good I’m glad we are on the same page that republicans aren’t free market capitalists, or can you explain why after every Republican President crashed the economy in the last 90 years it was followed by a bailout of Wall Street by Republicans and more tax cuts? George W Bush signed TARP in 2008, before Obama took office, so Bush gave over a trillion dollars to bail out Wall Street for bad loans he deregulated. Like I said I’m happy we agree the only reliable thing about Republicans is their Recessions…😂😂😂

    • @Some Person sorry but it was Obama that gave him the bailout

    • @snoop alert crying “nahuh” like a toddler is adorable, but you should go check your facts. TARP was signed in 2008, Obama didn’t take office until 2009, so Obama wasn’t in even office yet snowflake. Do you mean the GM Bailout? Because I thought Republicans liked manufacturing jobs and buying American first?😘

  15. Unbelievable. Trump needs to go.
    His Presidency is effectively over.

  16. When you think that the Trump’s doesn’t get any more stupid

  17. Trump is the only Russian Spy in history Who doesn’t know They are a spy

  18. This would be laughable if it wasn’t so scary maybe he does have Russian ties maybe he does speak Russian way to go Trump selling your country out

  19. There’s nothing like a russian official or a table loaded with cheeseburgers to make Trump smile.
