      @John Lyons KEEP DREAMING, SOONER OR LATER YOU’LL WAKE UP HOPEFULLY, BUT THEN AGAIN YOU MAY NOT, YOU’RE PROBABLY HOPELESS ! 😥👍🏻

  2. very well said, ty rep swalwell and dr maddow. nothing less than our nation is at stake here.

    • Yes. Our nation has been at risk. Joe Biden and many more I fear have been robbing America blind. The President doesnt think thats ok and I dont either. It looks like Democrats are just fine with it.

    • @Mark Shumate as i just told you on the other one, go peddle your crazy and debunked conspiracy theories elsewhere. oh and btw, the ones robbing us blind have the last name of trump, a family of corruption.

    • mary jones 👌fact remains, Joe Biden did his devious Burisma Stuff to enable son, Hunter to acquire $82 k per month “job” of which that dope addict has NO experience. 👌.

    • for our most recent ‘guest’ to this comment: putin is a clumsy oaf and a worldwide laughingstock, with tiny hands and balding head who can’t skate without falling on his ugly face. i still laugh over that video. what a maroon, lol!
      yep, a russian troll has joined in. they can be most easily recognized by a check of their channels. they will have no content. that together with making outrageous comments or replies to other comments are the best indications. please don’t feed these trolls, and i mean this quite literally. they receive about 85 rubles for each comment or reply to their comment. just downvote them and move on. they can be reported if they use nasty language or bully someone or spam the page, otherwise please just ignore them. if they don’t earn any money here then they will move on. the same goes for other comment sections on other videos. they are out in force, but we can make them leave by not feeding them 🙂

  3. under his skin he gots more chins then a Chinese phone book

  4. As a defense lawyer I understand the choice between simplicity and fullness. For my money I would have included bribery as it is specifically mentioned. ‘High Crimes’ is (relatively) vague. Bribery is not vague. The case for bribery can be made and, more important, can be made succinctly and in the language that people of all abilities can grasp. ‘Here are the elements of the offence – here is the evidence of each element – is there any contradictory evidence, No. ‘ On another slant there was the case for making a dozen or so articles of impeachment.

    • Always Unlimited Trump was worried because all he does is watch TV and back then polls had Biden 15 points plus ahead. Stupid as it was too early to tell if Biden would be the nominee. Its also hilarious that for a man who likes to call everything fake news, its his obsession with a fake conspiracy that’s caused this.

    • @James Dalton I know you have a fetish for hairy legged men, but we really don’t wish to hear about it in these pages. Kindly keep your repressed sexuality to yourself. Thank you.

    • @Dave Ponsford You wrote in part, “By the way Biden was undertaking policy from the state department and republicans”. Really? So this video confirms the official state Department and Republicans policy?
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCF9My1vBP4&t=1s

      You guys say that the Trump family is a crime family. Seems to me, the only clear evidence of a crime family are the Biden’s. All under the nose of Barrack.

    • @zog zog You left out “Misdemeanors”. Just a typo right? Anyway, what is a misdemeanor counselor? Is shoplifting an example of a misdemeanor? So are you telling me that a shoplifter has more rights than a President of the USA?

      Hearsay, Really? So if a guy says, he heard it from a guy, who heard it from a guy and that guy heard for another guy, you are OK with that? If so, maybe you should be a FBI attorney and work on their team that petitions the FISA court of warrants?

      @Josh Allen Thank you. I understand you have to be facetious in order to save face (wink, wink😜)

  5. With displays of verbal diarrhea, emotional incontinence, malicious drooling, vindictive flakiness, self-pitying/promoting fantasies, witness intimidation, oozing hate, naked greed and bloated arrogance regularly, Donald Trump has never been more toxic to America and humanity in general.

    It’s rigged by the GOP

    • TRUMP 2020. PROMISES MADE PROMISES KEPT.

    • Oh really, explain your theory! You are going to be upset in the next election 🍻

    • GILBERT Hernandez | December 17, 2019 at 3:30 PM | Reply

      @James Dalton Nothing to explain. Common knowledge. All over media with Mitch McConnell audio video and much more you trumper in denial.

    • GILBERT Hernandez | December 17, 2019 at 3:33 PM | Reply

      @thecatfishrod never promised a welfare handout to millionaires.
      Never promised to extort an ally for political reasons. Never promised to hurt the elderly and the poor. Never promised to lie every day.
      Yet, he did this and more.

  7. Abusive of power is inclusive of trump’s general approach to governance!!!

    They want you DIVIDED!
    They call us names.
    They make threats.
    They censor.
    They lie.
    They project.
    They cheat.
    They steal.
    They harm.
    They are sick.
    They are evil.
    At some point the streets (for them) will not be safe.
    Q

  11. Mr. Swalwell, I think you would make a really good president. Maybe 2020 just wasn’t your time.✨

    • Definitely see a presidency in Swalwell’s future

    • CAN YOU IMAGINE THIS WINNIE AS PRESIDENT ? ☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️💀☠️💀☠️.

    • JOE BIDEN …. IF YOU DONT FIRE THE GUY INVESTIGATION MY SON AND HIS CROOKED GAS COMPANY IN 6 HOURS YOU WILL NOT GET THE BILLION DOLLARS FROM THE USA.
      “ HYPOCRISY AT ITS BEST “

    • V. V BUT YOU HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH JOE BIDEN AND HIS CROOKED SON AND GAS COMPANY. HOLDING BACK A BILLION UNLESS THEY FIRE THE GUY INVESTIGATING THIS COMPANY AND HIS SON ? WOW!

    • @Boudica + ACTUALLY FARTWELL IS HATED OUTSIDE THE CA BUBBLE, ALMOST AS MUCH AS ADAM SCHITT. So he can only be President of CA, if 1-day , CA tries to secede. Even THATS a big maybe, because he even lied about his recent name-Change, going from SWALLOWSWELL to FARTWELL FOREVER!

  12. speak about reality, name it by name, spit it out. Show the Lindsey Graham video when he vomits the WH Mobster’s qualities…..the people will maybe wake up.

    • Oh we are awake, I think Lindsey Graham will go down with Obama, Clinton, Comey, McCabe, Brennan, sterzok, page, Schiff and many others. I think McConnell is a demon rat too!

  13. Who cut the cheese?

  14. Bribery. There should be an impeachment article that specifies bribery.

    • Marc Lawrence YES AND JOE BIDEN WOULD BE STILL DOING TIME IN THE BIG HOUSE.
      🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗. HEY HUNTER,,,,,,,,,, DADDY CAN GET YOU A JOB FOR $83000.00 A MONTH JUST BECAUSE YOUR MY SON ,,, NOT COUNTING THE OTHER JOBS “ CREDIT CARD COMPANIES “. ,, CHINA DEALS. IM YOUR DADDY ,, THEY WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU SON. YOU WILL HAVE TONS OF MONEY BECAUSE YOUR A BIDEN.

    • Bribery is what it is. Do you really need a dictionary to define it? I’ll give you an example if you really need specifics.

      If a friend of yours was breaking into someone’s home and found money, jewelry and other items deemed worthy, and you caught em’ by mistake, he can bribe you with money to keep quiet.

      A bribe is asking for something in return.

      Annie 👌you are correct 100 % ! Joe Biden sure did THAT for his son, dope addict Hunter. Got away w/ it Too ! 👌.

  15. Swadwell has pooping adults in his streets and it legal
