  1. Bone spurs doesn’t want the truth out or these people would have testified in Congress.

  2. Schumer, “What is Trump afraid of?” The truth.

    • @Richard Darlington this impeachment will be shot down in the Senate faster than a skud missile.

    • Have you even but paying attention? I actually watched the hearings and the minority was refused witness after witness in the house lol now they want to make sure it doesnt happen to themselves in the Senate lol laughable… the Republicans will vote down every witness and we’ll be back to normal business by February lol.. hope you guys are “emotionally ” ready for another 4 yrs lmao

    • @Cpt. Crash they aren’t even honest enough to see the hypocrisy. Its abit different when its not one sided echo chamber, Not allowing any rebuttle from opposition to discredit witnesses
      This will be over in a month. He will be re-elected in 2020. Voters have had enough of the dems hysteria, wasting time and money.

    • @Richard Darlington since you know more, you should know he was investigating the company Biden’s son worked for with plans on investigating him when fired. A little ironic don’t you think??

  3. republicans truly are the “hide the facts” party.

    • Separation of powers it was congresses job to make the case and bring the facts they could have got the courts to force these witnesses to testified but the fact is the courts would have said no because there wasn’t even enough evidence to start this impeachment. Put your self in trumps shoes imagine your being accused of a crime and there’s no evidence by law your innocent until proven guilty your not allowed to have a lawyer and your not allowed to call your own witnesses in your defence…trust me you wouldn’t like it. You would be walking into a trap even if you were 100% innocent. So if you wouldnt do it why should the president.

    • How’s fast and furious treating ya LMFAO

    • Flashbang Schumer cheered Janet Reno and her heavy handed ATF and FBI goons who massacred all them women and children at Waco. We remember Chuck

    • i must have struck a nerve to trigger this many russian trolls 😀

    Ask for Trump to testify.

    • Andrea Cuchetto he’s going to ask for a lot of stuff. He isn’t going to get any of it. He is on record saying witnesses are to be called to testify in the House not the Senate. I don’t see what has changed since the Clinton impeachment trial

  5. Яepublican Senators will be seen tomorrow collectively sticking their fingers in the ears and yelling LA, LA, LA, LA, LA… The GOP will then effectively be dead.

    • Mr_Rockito 😂😂😂😂

    • You think so? You don’t think most of the country sees through this Schiff show? 😂

    • @M Murph The entire world sees through the Republican self-dealing narrative. Talking points and agenda manipulation can’t change that. Even if republicans defeat Impeachment, Americans lose the world’s positive regard.

    • Santy Clause This is just another slimy Adam Schiff driven hoax. Schiff is only credible to the most ignorant members of society

  6. Trump and republicans know that there’s no witness that can exonerate Trump. Not even Trump’s closest aides, staff, and cabinet members would be able to save Trump. As Sondland stated during the Congressional hearings “everyone was in the loop.”

    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 and republicans refuse to allow Bolton or Eisenberg to testify is an admission of Trump’s guilt. Because if their testimony could clear Trump of any wrong doing, they wouldn’t hesitate to let them testify.

    • Well done. Yes, make them decide on the witnesses. Esp because tRump wants witnesses. It could be very interesting. As for Joe and Hunter Biden, they’re not the ones being impeached. Trial is not about them if it happens. And if Hunter has something to explain, so do Ivanka, Jared, Don jr and Earache. Oh and Melania who worried about her “brand”. They make Hunter look like a choir boy.

    • He doesn’t have to be exonerated. This is America

  7. Nothing says “innocent of being impeached” like refusing to turn over a single document and preventing any witnesses from proving you did nothing wrong. 🤔 😄

      @M Murph
      To paraphrase Fiona Hill, ” They were running political errands, while we were trying to conduct foreign policy.
      Surely you don’t think Trump did nothing wrong?
      (Sorry, double negative).

    • Richard Darlington I believe that you believe Trump did something wrong. I don’t see any evidence that proves anything. So I have to assume the Ukrainian president isn’t a lier. I don’t think you will be able to prove intentions in a court environment. How could you prove wether Trump wanted dirt on Biden for political gain and not simply investigating corruption? It’s well within the power of his office to investigate corruption. So far it’s a slam dunk for republicans. The House better produce a smoking gun by this afternoon or impeachment is dead in the water

    • Logan McLean keep trying little Loggy. It isn’t a transcript moron it is a summary. You really are the dumbest troll that comes here. Laughable little Loggy the useless tool

    • @Richard Darlington so Schiff’s parody is better?

  8. Schumer is good for doing this

  9. Trump has already cracked under the pressure.
    His nuclear mental meltdown can’t be concealed anymore.

  10. They should be made to testify they have no problem saying thier bit on national social media they need to grow some and stand up for what is right ……..

  11. We can do it Chuck!! Don’t give up. Trump and these no moral Republicans ARE the swamp!!

  12. Well done Sen. SCHUMER!😃👍🤣😂👏🥂👊🏼! Call for the votes on each one of them to testify! MOSCOW MITCH want to get sleazy & DIRTY, we will do it smart & honest and to the RULE of LAW! 🥂👏👍

  13. FORCE THAT VOTE, THAT SHOULDN’T EVEN BE A QUESTION, AND IF THEY DO VOTE IT DOWN FINE, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NEED TO SEE REPUBLICONS CONDUCTING A SHAM TRIAL.

  14. GET ‘EM CHUCK ‘CAUSE YOU KNOW THAT THEY’RE 😨 😨 SCARED & CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH BUT THAT ONLY SAYS HOW GUILTY THEY TRULY ARE!!🗽🌉🌉🗽💯💪✊😎✌😂😂😂

    • O SNOOPY SNOOP COLEMAN He isn’t going to get anything he wants. He did plenty of interviews during the Clinton impeachment that show he agrees 100% with Moscow Mitch

  15. If nothing to hide why is trump and GOP trying so hide to block witness GOP are blindly following trump off the cliff he’s a criminal the world knows this that’s way they laughed at him

    • If that’s the case why did the Democrats refuse each Republican witness called in house inquiries? Exactly lol who is the ones hiding ? President Trump has been saying call witnesses and do trial. The GOP as a whole just want this to go away. So if we go off what President Trump said we will be calling witnesses..

  16. WE THE PEOPLE will make sure trump is IMPEACHED!

    The majority of Republicans are too evil to even care about the constitution. There is no way to change there mind.

    not that i’m advocating this… but has it occurred to anyone in the DNC to offer Mitch McConnell a bribe?, ‘coz i think he’d be open to it…

  19. MoscowMitch should give the bloated tangerine the trial he wants, indulge the giant manbaby.

    The Republicans are so focused upon winning the battle, that they’re oblivious to the fact that they’re losing the war. Public backlash in the next few elections will drive their party to extinction.
