  1. When it comes to Trump and the GOP,  all roads lead to Russia.
    Lev Parnas, the indicted associate of Rudy, and Devin Nunes, received a $1 million payment from Russia and tried to hide it from investigators, prosecutors have now stated. Trump denies knowing Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, even though they have attended events at his properties, and they have posed in multiple photos with Trump.

    Parnas, who was charged with illegally funneling foreign cash to Republican politicians, including a pro-Trump super PAC, received $1 million from a mysterious account in Russia in September, which he conveniently forgot disclose to the government.

    Parnas is the founder of “Fraud Guarantee” 😂  a consulting firm with no “identifiable customers” that paid Rudy $500,000. The mysterious payment from Russia should not be a surprise considering that all roads lead to Putin and Russia when it comes to Trump.

    Prosecutors say Parnas and Igor Fruman donated larger sums of money to Republicans in an effort to enlist them in their effort to oust then-Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, who testified that she was recalled after a smear campaign by Rudy. Along with their work with Rudy, Parnas and Fruman are accused of meeting at Trump’s Washington hotel to discuss a Ukraine gas deal linked to Yovanovitch’s removal.

    In October, Republican Kevin McCarthy said he plans to donate the $111,000 that was given to the House Republicans’ main fundraising committee by Igor Fruman and Lev Parnas. 😲

    McCarthy, a sycophantic defender of Trump, said the money from Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, would be given to charity.  A handful of Republican campaign committees received nearly $500,000 from Parnas and Fruman.

    Prosecutors say that they “conspired to circumvent the federal laws against foreign influence by engaging in a scheme to funnel foreign money to candidates for federal and state office so that the defendants could buy potential influence with candidates, campaigns and the candidates’ governments.”

    Fruman and Parnas also created Global Energy Producers, an LLC to hide their funding sources and conceal their names on large contributions, the indictment says.

    FL. Gov. Ron DeSantis said he plans to return nearly $50,000 he received, according to a report by The Miami Herald. Parnas attended fundraisers for DeSantis in 2018. 😲

    I think it’s safe say that not only do the Russians own Trump, they also own the GOP as well. It’s going to be interesting to find out just how much Russia paid Trump and republicans to sellout and betray America. And make no mistake, we will find out.

    • @James Edward S. Trump’s immunity from criminal prosecution ends the moment he steps out of office. Likely at noon on 1/20/2021.

    • @James Edward S. That’s silly. NOBODY thinks the system is OK, ESPECIALLY not progressive Democrats. But Trump is an emergency, like when the burglars are breaking into your house.

      @JRG2733 “NOBODY thinks the system is OK, ESPECIALLY not progressive Democrats.’

      I guess you’d be shocked and stunned at how brainwashed the “progressives” are where I live, which happens to be just outside of San Francisco. The one in California, I mean. You can’t talk about how bad things are around here without being shushed and told if I don’t love it I should leave it.

    Donald Trump has had a lot of hate in his heart and mind for decades

    • That’s all WANNA BE’s …. that’s why they all flock to his rallies.

    • No greater hate than in the heart of the liberal, everything they accuse others of doing, they do themselves, as proven with this “fake news” which has become so much worse than fox that its just sad. From feminism to evolution, you are exactly the opposite of what you claim to be, you are the creationists now, its required for your new godless faith and ideology of “equality”, you hate your fellow american so much you wish to disarm them, because you intend on imposing authoritarian rule from afar, exactly what the founders fought against, but you hate the founders now, you are unamerican, at the end of the day that’s what you are, unamerican.


    • TRUMP 2020, 2024 !!!

  3. Why does Collins sound like an angry slave auctioneer whose auction just got cancelled?

  4. They are just trying distract and act as they are criminal and traitors but we know all and each one of them are already under investigation .

    • @TrumpTrain2020 Right, as you point out, Conservatives fall for conspiracy theories. This is how they so willingly betray America to prop up a criminal and traitor.

      To your point, you have to be one stupid, anti-American, POS to stand against America with Trump at this point in History.

    • @Jeremy Backup What’s amazing is the Trump supporters act like MSNBC is the only outlet reporting on Trump corruption. It is almost all outlets reporting nearly the same things about Trump’s corruption of the DOJ, the FBI, the State Department, and even America’s Drunken Uncle, Rudy Colludie.

      @TrumpTrain2020 TrumpTrain has derailed !!! 😉

  5. The GOP are treasonous, vile vermin and need to be taken out.

    • @Jocelyn Russell well written. In the spirit of “if the shoe fits… “

      @shkspr78 s Well shkspr, well YOU are the one using terms like Demtards.
      But really…I am rubber you are glue, is that the sum total of what passes for discussion and or debate with you?
      Rudeness is the weak man’s imitation of strength.

    • +jeff m Run back to your safe space little boy.

    • @cam walker You’re just a special kind of stupid aren’t ya.

    • @Jocelyn Russell still spoiling for witty repartee?
      You seem disappointed that I appreciated what you wrote the first time. It applied to my apparent rabid conservatism as well as the rabid liberals staging a coup d’etat in Congress.

    the fecal iceberg is the new wall


  8. gop are gas lighters

  9. History will not remember “president” Trump kindly at all – he will be a cautionary tale for future generations about how hate, bigotry and divisiveness can and will tear a nation apart.

    • @bugged out Of course not, they would rule that Congress does not have the right to everything the executive branch does which would undercut their obstruction of Congress lie.

      It doesn’t bother you in the least that they invented a whistleblower to get around executive privilege? Even then when the President released the call transcript and proved the whistleblower a liar, they did not care.

      Impeachment is meaningless unless both parties are treated fairly in the process. The Senate will NOT convict on these bogus charges and Democrats will be held accountable for this travesty. Count on it!

    • @Michael Duff To say the charges are bogus is your opinion. The republicans know the charges aren’t bogus but have no defense. If you noticed they oppose the process, that they themselves wrote. The Senate hearing will be important. Mitch will be taking a vow to be impartial, but I guess that won’t mean anything. Go online and query whistleblower/Ukraine. The letter is online and who reviewed it.

    • ….”he will be a cautionary tale for future generations”… I doubt it. The founding fathers TRIED to warn against this type of POTUS and even (mistakenly) imposed the Electoral College system to prevent it. What makes anyone think that people in the future will take heed of THIS “tale” to prevent a future trump.

    • @bugged out
      “The whistleblower has been interviewed and his story was collaborated by IG.”
      Not True

      “It went through all the proper channels.”

      Not True

      “To say the charges is your opinion. The republicans know the charges aren’t bogus but have no defense.”

      Then why not let them subpoena people and have a minority hearing? The only reason is that the Democrats have NO case for either article. They know that this is all political theatre and a scam from the start.

      Let’s put Adam Schiff under oath and ask him about coordinating with the whistleblower and then LYING about it. Let’s put him under oath and ask him WHO told him about the call and why he lied about it? No, we can’t do that because that would unravel the whole web of lies.

      “If you noticed they oppose the process that they themselves wrote.”

      Not true, it was not the “process” they wrote. The whole thing was against all the rules, policies, and procedures of the House. It was the dictatorship of the majority abusing their own power, and people will see that and make them pay.

      “Mitch already said, before the senate hearing have taken place, that they will exonerate. Is that fair? He is acting as judge and not as a fact finder. Mitch will be taking a vow to be impartial, but I guess that won’t mean anything”

      There are no facts to find. What President Trump did was completely acceptable.

      Presidents leverage aid all the time to get countries to deal with corruption. Isn’t that what Biden confessed to? My guess is that there will be little to no trial, even though Trump wants one to show how evil the Democrats are.

    • @redrock1963 He is exactly the kind of president the founding fathers had in mind. Someone who stands up the people, not the politicians.

  10. They know exactly what they are doing???????? They are blowing up all the GOP-credit that was left …those little new Adolf’s have no idea what they are doing beside pleasing that guy who’s now very busy with attacking 16 year old girls ….be best!

  11. When it comes to distractions…. does he think we will forget the quid pro quo??????? Trump wants to be a dictator…. so does McConnell… he was good at it during Obama’s years too… both of them are so selfish…they dont want to help us… just to get rich..

    • right on

    • Rep Collins’ claim about the Speaker weaponizing the House committees is really laughable when you think about Ryan’s Benghazi Committees and IRS Oversight Committees running for years and convicting no one.
      Collins is one of the worst at his defense among Trump’s GOP. Collins appears to let the stress of defending Trump make him angry and rudely loud.

    • Rich by using our tax dollars to circumvent the rule of law in this country. Let’s work together to save our country – voting BLUE across the board in 2020!

  12. “Not one objection to a president who has stolen their gavel. That is crowning a king”. Wow, there it is in a nutshell.

  13. The Group Of Prostitutes…. sold themselves to The Dickhead.

  14. “Thank God” she says 😂. Rick, you are hilarious!

  15. Republicans are the most danger Mafia in History…

    Rick Wilson your book “Everything that trump touches dies” should instead be titled “Everyone that trump touches dies”. These GOP grown men are literally DYING as congressmen before our very eyes!

  17. They need to individually go after each member who is obstructing.

    “Screeching histrionic drama queen” aka Collins. “Fecal iceberg” aka McConnell. OMG!!!! I love you❤️❤️❤️

  19. I shall remember that: 90% of the Trumpian Turdberg is below water.

  20. Trump will be sunk by colliding with his own fecal iceberg.
