  1. “I had a bigger crowd than Beto” DJT, after a mass shooting, with an orphaned baby in the room, in a hospital, where people lay wounded and dying. You don’t need to know any more than that.

      @Honest Business Trump is a sociopath, narcissisist, grifter, dullard, & traitor. I am not a democrat, I am an American! I still see that chesire cat grin holding a wounded orphaned baby for a photo op while over 20 people lay dead. Gotta be a cultist to not be revolted by this man. History will not be kind to him or his psychophantic cult.

      Idylchatter Indeed! The person is unfeeling, insensitive, selfish, infantile and deluded… by apparent grandeur 😐

      To all the GOP senators playing hooky because they don’t want to hear the evidence, stop complaining. It’s the job you were hired by the American people to do and as much money as you people make this is unacceptable. Even if you’ve already made your mind up, the least you could do is pretend to do your job and stop cheating the american people. Term limits needed for these stuck up politicians.

    It’s sickening… and it just came out that Trump sought to nullify the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act by executive order … HE HAS NOT INTEREST IN FIGHTING CORRUPTION.

      Peter Mogensen he, if you mean POTUS 45, can’t justify one thing he has done. Those that support him only do it blind to the facts of his corrupt, incompetent behavior.

    • Peter Mogensen | January 24, 2020 at 12:41 PM | Reply

      @James Hutchins … I’m seriously afraid that they are not “blind” to it.
      I fear they actually want to live in an autocracy. Maybe even a religious one.
      The phrase “American Taleban” might not be so far off.

    • James Hutchins | January 24, 2020 at 12:46 PM | Reply

      Peter Mogensen don’t give up or in to that thought. Americans are way too diverse to desire any form of government tied to any religion or religious group. We are a strongly independent people who sometimes stray from the center political but always come back.

      @James Hutchins
      Hmm.. been following US politics for 10 years now… those days seem to be over.

      Peter Mogensen my first experience in politics was as a 10 year old from my father a regional vice chair of the LA Democrat Central Committee during the JFK campaign. I got hooked then and tracked activities since. Since then I have seen very high and deep troughs but never one like we face now as Americans. This POTUS is so mobbed up he doesn’t or can’t conceive of the position he is putting our country in. I had thought RMNixon was the worst but at least he surrounded himself with competent people and listened. This man has no idea of listening or intellectually working through consequences of his words and actions.

  5. IMPEACHED TRUMP 👍

  6. When trump open his mouth the threat level goes up

    It wont matter because the Republicans are living in a separate reality

    • @esj8341 What part of a Violation of the Constitution do you not understand?? Abuse of Office is the main Reason that Impeachment was put into the Constitution. It could have been written specifically for A Person like Trump!

      Impeachment Process Explained:

      Impeachment is a long and drawn-out process.

      It all revolves around Article I Sections 2 and 3 of the Constitution, and rules in the House and the Senate implementing those provisions.- following the LAW as established in the Constitution.

      Step 1.

      It starts in the House Judiciary Committee, when a majority of the members OF THAT COMMITTEE* vote in favor
      of what’s called an “inquiry of impeachment” resolution.
      *NOT THE FULL HOUSE, ONLY THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE!

      Step 2.

      That resolution goes to the full House of Representatives where a majority has to vote
      in favor.

      And then votes to authorize and fund a full investigation by the Judiciary Committee into whether sufficient grounds exist for impeachment.

      Step 3.

      The House Judiciary Committee investigates.

      That investigation doesn’t have to be from scratch.
      It can rely on data and conclusions of other investigations undertaken by, say, the FBI. – This also includes other investigations, like the Special Counsel investigation.
      (Mueller Report)

      Step 4: A majority of the Judiciary Committee members decides there are sufficient grounds for impeachment, and the Committee issues a “Resolution of Impeachment,” setting forth specific allegations of misconduct in one or more “articles of impeachment”.- individual Charges.

      Step 5:* The full House then considers that Resolution and votes in favor of it – as a whole or on each article/charge separately.

      The full House isn’t bound by the Committee’s work.

      The House may vote to impeach even if the Committee doesn’t recommend impeachment.

      Step 6: The matter then goes to the Senate for a trial.

      The House’s Resolution of Impeachment becomes in effect THE CHARGES IN THIS TRIAL.

      Step 7: The Senate ISSUES A SUMMONS TO THE PRESIDENT, who is now effectively the defendant, informing him of the charges and the date by which HE HAS TO ANSWER THEM.

      If the president chooses not to answer or appear, it’s as if he entered a “not guilty” plea.

      Step 8 is the trial in the Senate.

      In that trial, those who are representing the House – that is, the prosecution – and counsel for the president, both make opening arguments.

      THEY THEN INTRODUCE EVIDENCE AND PUT ON WITNESSES AS IN ANY TRIAL.

      WITNESSES ARE SUBJECT TO EXAMINATION AND CROSS-EXAMINATION. THIS IS DONE BY ANY MEMBERS, INCLUDING BOTH “PARTIES”

      The trial is presided over by the chief justice of the Supreme Court – who has the authority to rule on evidentiary questions or may put such questions to a vote of the Senate.

      The House managers and counsel for the president then make closing arguments.

      Step 9: The Senate meets in closed session to deliberate.

      Step 10: The Senate returns in open session to vote on whether to convict the president on the articles of impeachment. (the CHARGES)

      Conviction requires a two-thirds vote of the MEMBERS PRESENT in/by the Senate.

      Conviction on one or more articles of impeachment results in removal from office.

      Such a conviction also disqualifies the now former president from holding any other public office.
      AND IT DOESN’T BAR ADDITIONAL LEGAL PROCEEDINGS AGAINST THAT FORMER PRESIDENT, AND PUNISHMENT FOR ANY CRIMES COMMITTED.

      So, there you have it–the 10 steps that must all take place to impeach the president.

      *IN THE CASE OF AN IMPEACHMENT THE HOUSE IS LIKE A GRAND JURY, DURING THE INQUIRY ALL HEARINGS, TESTIMONY AND EVIDENCE IS PRESENTED IN PRIVATE; ONLY AFTER THERE ARE FORMAL CHARGES (ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT) IS A VOTE TAKEN OF THE ENTIRE HOUSE.

      If you still don’t understand here is a video that explains it:

      https://youtu.be/h_qtRhe6zkA

      If after the written and video explanations, you still don’t understand, please find a 5th grader to explain it to you.

      This knowledge may come in handy.

      If for no other reason than to keep you from looking/acting like a fool!

      Bless your Hearts!💖😁

    • @Barry Sutton are you going to support the vile last 3 years of trump when he’s gone?

    • @Nancy Stowell Agreed! After Democrats were nearly three years and thirty million dollars on the special counsel investigation alone, the Democrats suddenly abandoned Collusion (Conspiracy), then moved to Bribery but just as suddenly dropped and now they are going with two Constitutional violations that are so vague that they could be applied by any majority in the House against any opposing party President. The whole sham will end in acquittal. What a waste of time and money. But, the worst part is the damage the Democrats wrought by lowering the crime element from the impeachment standard, and by impeaching the President over policy differences pose a dangerous president for America’s system of government going forward.

    • @Barry Sutton What is the Impeached President going to win again? I forget.

    We all know already enough even without docs,secret server info,witnesses and taxreturns…can you imagine what we will know if all of that sees the daylight?

  9. Republicans choose super packs over patriotism!! 🇺🇸 #RIGHTMATTERS

  10. “Here, right matters and if right doesn’t matter then we are lost.” Amen to that Mr Schiff…A-MEN!! Republicans are afraid to admit the truth because that will not allow them to continue with their lies and their house of cards will crumble.

  11. the grand old party is the party of (t)reason

  12. Lynette Patton | January 24, 2020 at 8:42 AM | Reply

    Give GOP an early, early retirement in November and they can sleep all they want.

  13. We need a revolution. We need a leader to take us there. Put McConnell’s, Graham’s, and Trump’s head on a stake on the White House yard.

    • Robin Johnson I’m afraid We Might, Putin, Xi, an haif the world will wait like Wolves, to pounce upon our American Soil. This president has pit brother against his own brother. Seems like we’ve done this once before, Deja Vu.??

    • Why desecrate the white house that way.? Get em to da ghetto!

    • That’s actually not an unreasonable idea.👍🏾

    • @lentruthbtold riv Really! Treason is other countries is punishable by death nothing is to extreme when it comes to the fatman and his crimes

  14. I am starting a prayer group to pray for honest good people. To save our world. EVIL MUST BE REMOVED GOP AND TRUMP.

  15. The USA Senate must be in Oz as the Radical Repubs keep going out on a break constantly in their itty bitty Cloak Room to get buzzed and in general `waltzing matilda to get out of there.

    • Raymond Tucker Jr | January 24, 2020 at 2:36 PM | Reply

      No doubt smoking that trump chronic!

    • @Raymond Tucker Jr Why don`t those Repubs just go to their cloakroom and smoke it up with enough joints get high, go to their homes, get so blizzed that Trumpsky could start WWIII “and the rockets red glare bursting in air…“ while Putin`s Rocketeers try to really blast the USA. Bolshoi spacuba Gaspadin President Trumpsky!!!

  16. We need a revolution towards the republicans to send a message and vote everyone of them out, they are not taking their oath seriously. They are a joke!

  17. God bless our nation of “Colorless” Patriots – Together We Stand -United Under God!! Black, brown, yellow, red, white and blue!!! Patriots All!!

  18. The jurors decided that they don’t want to enter documents or call the actual players involved. The GOP is corrupt to the core.

  19. The Light of truth will pierce the darkness of their evil, the world will see for themselves, what we knew all along.
    Nothing stops what’s coming, and no one escapes Justice.
    NO ONE
