  1. The Russians control the Republicans.

    • @lilly pad “lawS”
      here are just a few (you sniveling liar)
      18 §201 – bribery
      18 §371 – conspiracy
      18 §872 – extortion
      50 §3093 – covert op
      52 §30121 – campaign finance
      18 §1951 – Hobb’s Act (‘color of office’)
      18 §666 – theft/bribery of fed funds
      18 §600 – promise of compensation for political favor
      15 § 78dd-1 foreign corrupt practices

    • The COMMUNISTS control the Demoncrates 😃

    • @Michael Wuj you sound hinged.
      totally.

  2. OH, Tennessee inbreds Alexander and Blackburn ( who was spotted reading a book while she was supposed to be listening to evidence) are great examples of Citizens of Tenn. Unbelieveable.

      Ryan Edwards , We must evolve as society and the world changes, and it’s gonna change, or get left behind. You sound reasonable. Kentuckians have their problems too. The men still like their women barefoot and pregnant.

      Warren County, Tenn. headquarters of the KKK. Sad.
      They seem to want a do over of the Civil War. How’s that progressive?

    • I didn’t know Marsha Blackburn could read ?

  3. voting would be a great solution if you could guarantee free and fair elections without foreign influence. unfortunately, the president’s actions have already undermined that process.

  4. Lamar Alexander, “He did it but, let the voters decide in the election.”
    In an impeachment that’s about Trump trying to get foreign help, IN THE ELECTION.

  5. “Let the voters decide.” (Offer not valid in certain areas.)

  6. That talk yesterday of “this chamber… in this chamber,” was so sickening and patronizing and stinky. Lies, covering evil’s putrifying corpses. Filth coated in gold leaf.

    • Citadel of winds | January 31, 2020 at 10:20 AM | Reply

      “Filth coated in gold leaf.” Much like Trump’s toilet in his NY penthouse. In fact, the whole place is a monstrosity in gold and marble, a visual distraction that covers up the fact that dirty money paid for all of it.

  7. REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!

  8. This is how the Roman Empire had fallen

    • That´s a bad example. The fkng Romans stood for centuries their corruption and immorality. They went from uprising then decadence, then upraising again, many many times. Just after Caligula and Nero they went into 150 years of their greatest phase of power with the Flavius and Antoninus Emperors.

      At least that turned into the Byzantine Empire, a theocracy. But yes, it started out as a republic.

    • Adam Switlak- Did Jesus Christ have any witnesses at his trial? What about the Apostle Paul? or how about Christ’s disciples, did they have any witnesses before they were executed? Who did the people want executed Jesus or Barrabas? If you knew the truth that comes from above then you would know what is happening down here….

      @lilly pad I’m glad that you’re up ti date for your denominations doctrines. What do they say about sharing with the meek?

  9. Justice is dead! This government has reached the end of its life span! Pure corruption!!

  10. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government. Thomas Jefferson. Declaration of Independence.

    • Jakob Peter Raahauge | January 31, 2020 at 11:51 AM | Reply

      Yes, all banana republics have constitutions like that 🍌 it makes it easier to negotiate trade deals!

  11. Bought and paid for. A total pos. I hope things keep coming out about the massive corruption that has gone on and continues to go on.

  12. Lamar doesn’t shock me! He’s known to except Bribes! It’s good that he’s not Running again. Clean up the Swap! 🙄

  13. Translation: He played both sides like a craven coward. Says it’s bad, then loses his balls.

    • Trump isn’t a righty or lefty PERIOD! That conman was first on the Dems side until they denied him what he wanted then he hopped to the right to get his way. Trump is a user, manipulator and opportunist and all of those that’s defending him will pay the price because he doesn’t give a shyt about them or those that supports him. Look at what he did to Matt Gaetz.

    • Exactly. 🤦🏽 As A Tennessean I’m Extremely Disappointed, But Should’ve Known He Would Fall In Line With All The Rest Of The #ComplicitCorruptGOP Members. #TrumpIsGuilty #TrumpIsNotAboveTheLaw #ImpeachAndRemoveTheMF

    • @Annie The Original Comment Was Referring To Lamar Alexander.

    • @Annie You’re Right About #TraitorTrump

    Fair and impartial trial with Republikkkans. Oxymoron.

  15. “”WE THE PEOPLE”” COME TO THE END ON JANUARY 31ST 2020 NOW LET TRY TO DRAFT A NEW CONSTITUTION

  16. The hypocrisy behind sanctifying the elections, as in “Let the Voters decide”, when excusing trump’s insidious, covert attempt TO CORRUPT THE 2020 ELECTIONS!

    • Kawasaki Ed- Even Pontius Pilate let the people decide they freed Barrabas….
      I am sure you don’t understand what I am saying…..How many witnesses did Jesus Christ have at his trial?

    • Not to mention the bipartisan (!) election protection measures passed by the House that are sitting idle on Moscow Mitch’s desk…

  17. American’s need to get their shid together and vote

    Trump Clowns: See? He got acquitted!
    Rest of the world: Uhm… yeah. In a rigged trial, without evidence and a Trump-puppet jury.

    *Shakes head in disappointment*

    • @Sux_2_B_U we want you to see it, but the Republican Senate is blocking it.

    • @Sux_2_B_U Send You A Link Of All The Evidence? 🤦🏽 GTFOH Apparently You Haven’t Been Paying Attention To The Impeachment Inquiry & Have Been Completely Brainwashed From All The #QAnon #FoxFakeNews #TrumpLies If You Knew Any Smart & Honest People, They’d Tell You Just How Ignorant You Must Be To Believe Anything That #DonTheCon Has To Say. 🤔 #TrumpIsGuilty #TrumpIsNotAboveTheLaw #ImpeachAndRemoveTheMF

    • @Sux_2_B_U I don’t think they know any smart and honest people. I feel really bad for them, it’s really sad 😃

    • Freaking Trumplicans you cant trustem.Its been NONSTOP BS since hes been in office.SICK OF IT!!!

  19. Lamar Alexander is trying to volley for his soul. He believes his admission of Trump’s guilt on behalf of party exonerates Alexander from HIS oath. I GUARANTEE you, it does not.

      mildred grossman I have read them and I don’t agree with you. And that cannot mean that I don’t believe in the truth. You don’t get to define that for me. What you’re speaking to are your FEELINGS about Trump.

      @Darnell Shareef I have read the
      Constitution and you are expressing

  20. Translation: “I have a constitutional duty but I refused to uphold it!” –Sen. Lamar Alexander

    Yeah, that’s how it pretty much sums up!
