    “Everyone was in the loop.”

    • @Councilman Les Wynan Except for the people actually on the call. Oh, and the people who’s aids gave them detailed reports about every single detail of the call. Oh, and all the people who discussed how problematic the call could be WITH those people actually listening in to the call, who later decided to misclassify it as super secret to keep it from getting out. That’s all.

    Humpty Trumpty had a great fall!!! Guess why?… His own reprehensible conduct!

    • Gabriel White – OK, Bible-thumper. LOL Trying to wake you up to the facts.

      @Gabriel White The world can no longer trust a republican president. The republican senators have proven the constitution, decency and truth are no longer what rules America.That is a global security risk.

    • @karin backstrom I completely agree with you. That was very well said. Thank you for your response. It’s nice to get a comment from a nice person

    • Rychard Shelton that’s right👍🏿👍

      Maddow has shared her brain worms with the masses.

    • Mango Mussolini and his Repugnant-can Party , their all bending over for Putin the Pirate with a patriotic look on their face !

    • @Ed S So it’s trump supporters who divide? Antifa,beating up people with maga hats,rioting after the election,kicking people out of restaurants,getting on mega phone and saying ” disrupt Trump people in public (maxine waters) omar saying “we going to impeach the mother fer) the left wing owns all of that and more.

      @Gloria McFadden: please name your sources because if you are not able to support such a fallible premise as this, it is pure speculation. I am sorry for you. Truly I am, for all of you. It is only the beginning of an end and an end to a beginning. Somwhere in time you will find the true nature of the people and the will of this country’s occupants, of whom those who are descendants that colonized the east coast so long ago. From those Patriots of 1776, neither party existed when the ‘founding fathers’ invented this great country; a republic, now, 2020. A country divided by politic, shrouded in deception, lies, covert and overt tactics, including, but not limited, to psychological warfare, trillions of dollars of debt (which is not sustainable but is passed unto the children) and bloated beuracracies. Lies. False hope and wasted lives. This country, this people have been torn from our mother and divorced our Father, the Great Spirit of the sky. You people will know what war is and pain. But we remain. Our brother the buffalo have returned to the plain. But, you people continue to fight, now you fight one another, and fight you will until you yourself lose sight and are out of sight. You shall fight while we remain. So go and follow those who practice nine ways to Sunday of getting back at you if you do not fall in line. Because shortly thereafter, being they who they are will follow the blind.

  4. Guilty as sin, jail Traitor Trump.

      Jack Charbonneau. I feel the same way. Put it ALL on the table. I am tired of these distraction games. If you have to hide evidence it is an admission of guilt.

    • @autumn rain What happened was they paid their un bill and the president is getting rid of bad trade deals.You wouldn’t know that watching msdnc

  8. His name, his beautiful name TRUMP* forever tarnished
    * in 2019 the 45th President of The United States of America Donald J Trump* was impeached for abuse of power and obstruction of congress…….TRUMP*

    The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help me God.

  10. When Lt.Col Vindman twice told a superior of his concerns about Trump’s efforts to force  Ukraine for the investigation in exchange for military aid, the White House lawyer John Eisenberg had the full transcript of Trump’s phone call moved to the highly classified White House server, which is usually reserved for code-word level intelligence but not transcripts of diplomatic discussions. Why would the full transcript of Trump’s so called “perfect” phone call be hidden? If he did nothing wrong, releasing the full transcript should exonerate him of any wrong doing.

    The only logical conclusion is that Trump is guilty, and he knows that releasing the full transcript, and allowing Mulvaney, Bolton and others to testify under oath would be his undoing. Trump knows that after seeing what happened to Manafort, Cohen  and Stone, that no one else is going to risk going to prison for his crimes.

    Trump’s own National Security Adviser, John Bolton quit over Trump’s scheme to bribe Ukraine.

    JULY 10
    At the Trump International Hotel in Washington, Andriy Yermak, a top adviser to Mr. Zelensky, asks Mr. Volker to connect him to Giuliani. The two men later meet in Madrid.

    At a White House meeting later that day in Bolton’s office, two Ukrainian officials press for an Oval Office meeting between Trump and Mr. Zelensky. Sondland blurts out that Mick Mulvaney, the acting White House chief of staff, promised that Mr. Zelensky would be invited if Ukraine announces “investigations.”

    Bolton immediately halts the meeting. At a follow-up meeting, Sondland again presses the Ukrainians to announce investigations, this time specifying Burisma and the 2016 election as targets. Fiona Hill, one of Bolton’s top deputies, calls that session to a halt.

    She and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, her subordinate, report the meetings to John Eisenberg, the chief legal adviser to the National Security Council. Bolton tells Ms. Hill to deliver a message from him: “I am not part of whatever drug deal Sondland and Mulvaney are cooking up.”
    The fact that Trump refuses to allow these people to testify is an admission of guilt, and an overt cover-up.

      It wouldn’t be the fact that other conversations with leaders of other countries like the phone call to the Australian PM were leaked to the media. The Democrats could have got anyone they wanted to testify if they had taken the steps through the court but for some reason they didn’t. I suspect they knew that they would have lost due to the fact that the President has executive privilege under the separation of powers. I also find it unusual that none of these bureaucrats were silent when the previous administration gave Ukraine no military assistance but all of a sudden its a issue of national security. Was it a matter of national security when the CIA and state department supported the coup of a democratically elected President in Ukraine causing the annexation of Crimea? Did these geniuses in the Intel community really think that Russia was going to hand over a major naval base in Crimea that it has held since the 1700 s? Why did the CIA use a known Nazi and convicted war criminal to head its project to destabilize Ukraine from as far back as the 50 s ?

      Like many other Americans, I want to know what else is on that secret server, and what other crimes are detailed in all the evidence that was withheld from the white house, state department, and other parts of government. Desperate Donny has the whiff of being a lot more criminal than just extorting Ukraine. Remember when Mulvaney let slip that “We do this all the time”? These people are OUR EMPLOYEES and we need to know what they’ve done in our name.

      When all the evidence comes out, as it will (everything that was withheld from the House investigation, everything on the secret server) the sharp intake of breath, the shock of realizing the depth of Trump’s corruption and how the rest of the Republicans were complicit in covering it up, will be heard around the world. Maybe someone will bring in Madame LaFarge for what happens after that.

    • @David Crowley – The difference is that Trump was only born here. Otherwise, he’s not an American. He’s been shown to not know the Pledge of Allegiance or the National Anthem, but he can hug a plastic flag for a photo-op. It’s so much easier to get a note from your doctor regarding the bone spurs that will keep you from fighting in a war and playing golf. No, Trump is a racist, through and through. He is such a narcissist that he wouldn’t know what to do if confronted with kneelers in a church. The thought of a knight giving homage to royalty is beyond him. However, simple greed will get Trump to do anything and say anything without remorse or taking responsibility.

      David J, how stupid, or wilfully blind do you have to be, to not understand what you’ve just laid out so clearly?

    • @Michele Mcneill – You will find that comments by David J are always worth your time.

  11. Bring out those dirty pictures of Trump that you got from the Russians.

  12. Treason is the reason for this season.

  13. They all have so much dirt on eachother they can’t see straight. Time is a beautiful healer. We’re coming for you!!!!

  14. The WHOLE Trump administration including the Republicans MUST BE REMOVED ASAP from ALL OFFICES!

    • Russel Bamberry | December 19, 2019 at 7:38 AM | Reply

      And then what? Have just one party just elect a leader. Sounds like something Russia would do. Aren’t they the bad guys?

    No one is above the law, including Vice President Pence…

    • @David Guelette i know your plans you want impeach trump then accuse of pence of being involved and then impeach him so nancy pelosi can become president

    • Lets hope “mom” can visit him in prison

    • Look at the desperate dem wanting pelosi as president because they did not get their way 3 years ago.Boo hoo hoo who is you’re president???

    • @the questioner That is the whole point of the Democrats doing this impeachment so then they can do the same to Pence so Nancy Pelosi can step in and be the President, she already thinks she is anyway.

    • Just because you don’t agree with something doesn’t make you right.
