      @Nemesis1ism – Sorry, you must live in a trashy Trump reality because it made no sense to my comment.

      IN 2024 WHEN PRESIDENT TRUMP DOES HIS 8TH YEAR, A DEMOCRAT WILL BE ELECTED AS PRESIDENT, THEY WILL REMOVE THE WALLS TRUMP HAS BUILT TO PROTECT OUR NATION AND ALLOW A FLOOD OF ILLEGAL ALIENS INTO THE INTERIOR OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WHICH WILL CAUSE THE RISE OF MURDERS, RAPES OF KIDS, MUGGINS ON THE STREETS AND HOMES TO BE ROBBED! YOU WILL WITNESS THE DESTRUCTION OF YOUR NEIGHBORHOODS AND THE SAFETY OF YOUR FAMILIES! ,,,,,,,,,,,,,THIS 2024 ELECTION WILL BE RIGGED AGAINST A REPUBLICAN. UNLESS THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF A FREE AMERICA DO SOMETHING TO STOP THE DEMOCRATIC CRIMINAL SYNDICATE, MANY OF US WILL PERISH DUE TO LACK OF LAW ENFORCEMENT! ………WE MUST DESTROY THE DEMOCRATIC CRIMINAL SYNDICATE FROM TAKING POWER OF THE FREE PEOPLE. THE DEMOCRATIC CRIMINAL SYNDICATE WILL ENSLAVE THE POPULATION OF A FREE COUNTRY CAUSING POVERTY AND DESPAIR FOR THE FREE POPULATION OF THE UNITED STATES! FOR YOU NON BELIEVERS, YOU WILL JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. YOU HAVE ALL BEEN SO BRAIN WASHED BY THE DEMOCRATIC CRIMINAL SYNDICATE THAT YOU CAN NOT SEE THE FUTURE BECAUSE YOU ONLY LOOK FOR THE NOW AND NOT THE TOMORROW! ,,,,,,,I CAN ONLY SAY TO YOU IS, “MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR CHILDREN’S FUTURE! REMEMBER, YOUR DECISIONS YOU MAKE TODAY, WILL AFFECT YOUR CHILDREN’S FUTURE TOMORROW!

      @Bruce Boring sorry to get back late I have backyard chicken’s had chores to do Lol 😄🥰🎶📯 bahabaha their my pets to Suzanne 😂😎🌀🌊🌀🌊🌀🌊🌊🍻🍻😂

    • It was easy for those Republican Senators to side with the House on this, since it’s not something close and personal to Trump. Plus, he really doesn’t want to start something with Iran, like he did recently, and then have to worry about losing money, in the event prospective guests decide stay away from his hotels/resorts out concern for their safety in the event of an attack.
      After doing a cover up at his impeachment trial, these senators are looking for a way to say, ‘See, I’m able to stand up to him.’ You will notice, though, that they find it easier to go against him on foreign policy, something that he and his base know little about.
      In fact, many in his base want the U.S to let other countries fight their own wars. I would think that these eight Senators gave him a heads up.
      The Republican Senators will never go against Trump when it comes to holding him accountable for his crimes, unethical behavior, conflicts of interest, for inviting foreign interference in the U.S. elections for his benefit, etc.
      Foreign policy, unless it’s Russia, is not personal to him. Also, Venezuela: He may be hoping to oust Venezuela President Maduro in time for the 2020 election, strictly for the expat votes. Again, it has be personal where it benefits him financially, in maintaining power (so he doesn’t have to face SDNY), or it fulfills his need for vengeance.

  2. this just means he will be backed into the corner of “lying” about how imminent the threats are

      No need for “Lying” just lying will do

    • Boyd Trump belongs to the Right-Wing Likud Party of lsraeI, not Putin. If Trump gets re-elected he 100% start a war w/ Iran. No doubt about it, and all the lsraeI-firsters in gov’t and the media, will be cheering it on.

      Liars soon go to jail: by Barr and Durham! Its easy to prevent your children will never become a socialist. Give them a job, pay $10 for it, and take back $7 back and give it to a friend that did not do anything. Guaranteed that they will never become a socialist! Trump KAG 2020-24, Candace 2028 🇺🇸 No: Not a ra;cist, Not a Big;ot, Not a se;xist, Not Nevre a Demon;rat!‼️

    • @Boyd lol

  3. NO KINGS, NO EMPERORS, NO DICTATORS!

      @Cliven Longsight if anything you say had any bearing of truth the dems would have had that info and it would have been in the impeachment. Sorry you listen to MSNBC to much. If anything you say had actual facts to back it up trump would be gone. Sadly you are misguided. Anybody but the socialist Democrats 2020

      @jays knight king titan
      It was in there as much as was possible. Everything else, Trump obstructed, or the senate, and lying sh1ts like you, just willfully ignored.

      @Cliven Longsight so based on your theory every president should be impeached cause they have all blocked subpoenas. Difference is actually investigations did what was needed. You are blinded by hate brainwashed by media who don’t report facts just attack trump. News is unbiased when it becomes biased it no longer is credible.

      @Junkyard Hog
      Your posts did not all register, so replying to your bogus claims now.

      Initial FISA wad solidly justified, despite quibbling. Carter Page was off-the-charts compromised, even well before Trump, justifying the opening of inquests, even w/o the Steele Dossier.

      Comey only said the Dossier had not been fully confirmed at the time, not that it was untrue.

      BTW, the Dossier has since been overwhelmingly confirmed true, excepting one very slight typo on a name, and evidence presently unconfirned yet also not disproven. It just kept coming up aces, in terms of accuracy.

      Also, the Dossier was originally paid for *by the GOP.* Clinton just bought it up when Trump got the nomination.

  4. Now, if they’d just vote to remove the Criminal-In-Chief, we’d be all set. #countdownto46 #TRE45ON

    Whats the point? All he’s going to do is lie or just do what he wants regardless of what they say

  6. Too bad these GOP Senators didn’t have the guts to impeach this man child.

  7. Get this corrupt president out of office ASAP.

  8. He’ll claim it’s unconstitutional

  9. Charles Vandenburgh | February 13, 2020 at 3:15 PM | Reply

    Most likely the eight voted, knowing their popularity is ebbing among the constituents.

    That’s tough for Trump: now he needs the approval of both Putin and the Senate.

    • @Jim Cox we as a nation have never fought Russia. Both world wars Russia was our Allie. What really started the cold War was infact the USA/ BRITISH PROPAGANDA started by Britts and America to hide the fact that it was Russia that destroyed the heavy water facility in Norway. This allowed America to move ahead of Germany in A-bomb. completion Soon after Russia destroyed the heavy water facility was destroyed Germany surrendered. That’s not what the Britts and Americans told its people. Your all a bunch of sheep being led to slaughter.

    • ra5928 so I have a question, what do you think about the new bill Congress passed to the senate. The new way forward act? I guess you think it’s a good idea to bring back all the criminal we deported? I can tell you what I know the guy I work with is from Mexico City. He thinks it’s a terrible idea. He said lot of them are really bad ppl. He likes Trump and thinks the wall is a good thing. He’s not a US citizen but is working for it. He also said he likes that Trump only the right ppl to come through. I only bring this up so you know the world isn’t the way MSNBC or CNN and them other left channels

    • @Gary Parsons – Your cult leader slammed a federal judge, 4 federal prosecutors, the jury foreperson on the Stone case, his former chief of staff Kelly and others … just today and you deflect? Sooooo many deeeeep staaaaate people under your bed. Now, even crooked Bill Barr is pushing back. Is he deeeeeep staaaaaate also? OOOOOOOhhhh .. deeeeeeep staaaaate. But I will answer your stupid deflection question. I agree with Ronald Reagan. No wall and open borders. OK?

    Can’t care less About bipartisanship anymore. If you guys had an intelligent individual instead of a foolish child, this resolution wouldn’t be needed

  12. 8 republicans finally found their cajones.

  13. Dribrom Sunrock | February 13, 2020 at 3:18 PM | Reply

    Yea good luck with that. When did Trump care about anything regarding the law?

  14. didnt anyone think to also remove his pardoning powers ?

    • He has a total disregard for the constitution, but yet retains constitutional authority. Only in America. Nevertheless, they’ll never question his pardoning power because they might need it. Hence their loyalty.

    • @soul1 and nobody ever thought if a crooked despot decided to abuse it there should be a safe guard ?

  15. Easier would be to change the launch code to 5 digits, so he cannot remember .

  16. Trump needs to be locked up in Guantanamo Bay along with the rest of his traitorous cabinet.

  17. Say what you want but they’re treating him like a child lol

    Just remember this : The guy from The Apprentice declares war on Iran.

    • Elizabeth Ramos | February 13, 2020 at 4:30 PM | Reply

      Al Capone would be upset to find out that one of his secret hideaways was bombed, along with Hot Springs, Arkansas.

  19. I would like to know who the 8 repugnance were who finally decided to stand up and act like grown ups..instead of
    cowering in a corner..

  20. Every time I hear “the president”, I can’t believe they’re referring to trump.
