      Idly chatter – I heard over the weekend that the president before president Z had been approached by team Trumptardf had offered same deal A YEAR ago so sounds like hedging his bets?

      @Cocoa Liveson The 3 hours and 40 plus minutes of the shameful Republican tap dance during the Corey Lewandowski testimony , says a whole lot .

    • Idylchatter there is just to much criminal action to keep tract of.

    • That’s family

    • Also the plans for a Trump Tower Moscow, even though he’s never been there or even heard of it. (slight exageration but you get the point)

    When will the House start jailing people for ignoring subpoenas? Please don’t let them keep getting away with this. They are making a mockery of our legal system. How can you hold regular citizens up to the laws if select others are allowed to blatantly break it?

    • @Jeffrey Meade Stop it. Threatening to start a civil war is first getting you the attention of the FBI and second, stupid at the most basic level. You are outnumbered. Badly. Stop pretending you have the cajones to fight the US military.

    Alternative universe run amok. Just because trump and the trumpets have adopted it doesn’t mean the rest of the world has. We’re still operating in the caca reality of trying to deal with the horror trump and his ilk has unleashed. In other words we aren’t bought in to the lies. Trump aint God and his ilk aren’t Christ,,, Gabriel and the ark angels and I don’t think heaven is their final destination.

      Trump and the Republicans believe that the majority of Americans are just as stupid and gullible as Trump’s base. Clearly, their assumption is 100% wrong.

  4. enough is enough send these people to jail then they’ll start talking

  5. It is about the cleansing of the Office of the Presidency —- right Lindsey?

  6. Who cares if Trump accepts the transcripts, the man–child is delusional and mired in mendacity. If he did accept them, anyone sane would be disturbed.

    Hold them “In Contempt of Congress” because last week the DC Court said it was legal to testify. They could Plead the 5th Amendment also.

    • @nathan mckenzie
      Yes, I’ve already stated that. The only person who may have been complicit in this crime is Saundland though. The others were eye witnesses who have no obstensive exposure. Also, this is not a criminal trial this an impeachment inquiry and so as long as a witness doesn’t perjure themselves their testimony would not result in any criminal prosecution.

    • nathan mckenzie | November 4, 2019 at 2:48 PM | Reply

      @Evan Fields That’s not entirely true. Saundlund is in danger of perjury, that part is true. Most of the witnesses are just telling what they know so they aren’t in trouble, that part is so true.

      Others, such as Mick Mulvaney, may have directed OMB to hold a payment in violation of the law. If he were asked “did you do this” he could plead the 5th.

    • J.G.G. Goodrich | November 4, 2019 at 2:50 PM | Reply

      Evan Fields Refusing to Testify is a Crime and the @5th Amendment says you can take the 5th or in other words that you [May] take the 5th” regardless of criminality. Ex specially without an Attorney present at the hearing.


  9. “You cannot negotiate with someone who says what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is negotiable.”

    For people who did nothing wrong they sure are hiding it!

      @Forrest Trump Hold the phone! We got ourselves a intellectual here! LOL

      @Intouched Simplified Hardly…You cant show one moron

    • Charles Scruffy | November 4, 2019 at 9:52 PM | Reply

      @Bethany Dee Wow Beth, you are a bit stupid

    • Intouched Simplified Here you go:

      You’ve never seen this? You should really look at news with a little more scrutiny and not believe everything the MSM spews.

    • Bethany Dee Do you honestly believe Hunter Biden got position on a Ukrainian energy board that he knew about making over $50K per month? And then Biden asks for the lead investigator looking into the firm to be fired. Then Biden lies last month saying that he never met anyone from his son’s company, yet a photo surfaces with him playing golf with the executive leadership of the company.

      Can you imagine if the shoe was on the other foot, and this was Trump’s son on the Ukrainian company’s board and Trump asked the lead prosecutor to be fired? Imagine the liberal media with that!

  11. All for the love of MONEY.

    • It’s more likely for the love of power. It could be argued that the Republican party has absolute power now; they have the majority in the Senate, have the Executive branch and have the majority of judges in the Supreme Court. Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    • People need to listen to more than just the chorus of that song…

  12. If they dont show up hold them accountable period. Stop playing with these people. This is real $$it here.🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄

  13. So, does this no-show thing work for everybody? Try pulling that when you get a traffic ticket. Shameful.

    • Yeah, it’s pretty clear by the actions of this administration that they believe they are above the law, while the rest of us have to abide by it. Let’s never let the Rethuglican party ever call themselves the party of Law and Order again!

  14. There is much BS here from the republicans and it’s making the whole US smell like a dump oops trump. Sorry for the typo.

  15. The W.H. is lacking integrity. Shame on who doesn’t show up. Right is right and wrong is wrong, Period

    • Trump spent 50 years skirting the law in his businesses, and it worked for him. No wonder he thinks he can still get away with it. We need to teach him different!

    The Congress needs to start handing out punitive penalties to compel them to testify if they aren’t going to hold them in contempt and jail them as Congress has the power to do.

  17. A “quid pro quo” is “Bibery” in legal terms.
    “The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, *Bribery*, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

    One can also make the claim that trump committed treason by trying to involve a foreign government in his crimes to under mine our government.

    There are 2 specific crimes that the founding fathers saw as so serious that they had to specify them as Impeachable. Also, what trump did was to jeopardize National Security by withholding military aid to an ally to extort a personal favor to undermine the our democracy. By asking a foreign government to back a lie can be considered *treason*
    The republicons know the facts are against trump, most of them think trump should be removed from office but they are all cowards when it comes to saying so in public.

    • @Spencer Zumwalt can you post any links to trump asking Boris for dirt on Mueller? I do know that a whistle blower reported the same things with Australia. Trump is completely out of control. Even a stanch supporter of trump is calling for hims Impeachment.
      *Anthony Scaramucci makes Trump impeachment predictions*

      *Trump pressed Australia to help investigate Russia probe origin, source says*

    • @Chuck-U Farly I read it in the Guardian, The Independent and Business Insider, if that helps!

    • @Susan Galea Thanks, I also found it on CNN
      *Trump administration asked the UK to discredit the Mueller report*
      Now we know that trump has been trying to get dirt from Russia, China, Ukraine, Australia, UK and Italy. He clearly is desperate. They should add TREASON to the Articles of Impeachment.

  18. Just exactly how wealthy do you have to be in order for subpoenas to be optional? What sort of connections do you need before you can thumb your nose at Congress? All these no-shows should be fined and fired, and the acting president who encouraged their contempt for the law should be dragged out in handcuffs. They are a national disgrace.

  19. Them not showing up is a sign of their guilt

  20. “I would like you to do us a favor though.” Oops!! Deranged Donnie can’t put that toothpaste back in the tube. Far right conspiracy theories won’t work.

    • Doug E …yeah but they claim to believe in god and they say god loves a trier…

    • To be exact – far right conspiracy theories won’t work on a normal person. Their side of the table is so infected with tribalism and at such a level of cognitive dissonance never before seen in the history of our nation, that those conspiracy theories are falling to a fertill ground. Just the other days the far right idiots started to talk about civil unrest. About not allowing for a democratic process to remove their president. About civil war..These sycophans are ready to do anything for their con man “small hands” Donnie.

    • @vegass04 Too smart for YouTube man.

    • @Doug E Who is? Donnie? I doubt that.
