  3. This Trump makes the incompetence and bumbling of King George look like a sane and sober leader! What a mess.

  4. It’s bad enough that Trump is a Putin puppet but now the entire GOP is lining up for puppet strings.

      @Crystal Giddens keep drinking the kool-aid dumba$$

    • @Crystal Giddens did you actually read that article, because this was written in it “There’s little evidence of such a top-down effort by Ukraine.” I’m serious snowflake. That’s a direct quote from the article you proposed as evidence of something that didn’t happen. Are you always this stupid, or just trying hard today?πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    • guess you should elect better people then huh, until then, its Trumps call like it or not…this is all Hillary’s fault then…enjoy

  6. A pattern of eliminating career professionals and replacing with “yes” men/women

  7. Pamela Cassise | November 27, 2019 at 7:37 AM | Reply

    The Guinness Book of World’s Records should look at the amount of times “unprecedented” was used under a presidency.

  8. Give that guy his job back, please.

  9. You know you’re a Trump supporter when you think the first amendment is all about the worship of Putin.

    • πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ That’s if they even know what the 1st Amendment is.

    • ShadowProject01 | November 27, 2019 at 1:45 PM | Reply

      mr gbs I’m familiar with Mr Bongino and his Secret Service history (and controversy)

      but those concerns notwithstanding, is there a specific news article/interview/report/piece pertaining to the impeachment hearings I should look to?

      Thanks in advance

    • Megan & Steve Frost | November 27, 2019 at 3:41 PM | Reply

      Your Hitler if you think no one is allowed a different opinion then yours lol please explain the first amendment to me!

    • @ShadowProject01 You will never get that answer because the thing you’re asking is nothing but a pathetic, lurking maga troll.

    • Sounds more like you have Putin ency you propagandist.

    this is what’s happens when you put in a lier and no experience loser in the WH now the sheep wants him for 4 more years….idiots

    So the career staff didn’t want to break the law, then Trump sets his own appointees on it. That’s a pretty flagrant abuse of power right there. Knowingly ordering his staff to do something illegal.

    Sad that 50% of the population don’t are nor understand what precedents and erosion of powers Trump is leaving in his path and what that means going forward.

    • Angela Siegfried | November 27, 2019 at 11:51 AM | Reply

      Approximately 50% (in actuality it’s more like 25%) of all *voters* not 50% of the entire population as a whole. ( 25% Dems 25% republicans % the rest are independent voters.)

    • I find this abuse of executive orders to be troubling. The vast majority of the stuff Trump signs and hold’s up to the camera are just that. He acts as though he is signing things into law. Actual potential laws are gathering dust on McConnel desk as the WH tries to spin the story of the do nothing Democrats. The GOP majority has got to go!

  13. Bring these resigned people to testify as well!

    • Subpoena these resigned citizens, they dare not resistπŸ˜‚

    • Jim McLoughlin | November 27, 2019 at 2:47 PM | Reply

      ClearPolitics: Early days yet.

    • I think the resigned people would be glad to testify, as long as they know they’re not breaching any non-disclosure agreement. That shouldn’t be a problem: A judge has ruled that former White House counsel Don McGahn must comply with a House subpoena despite Trump telling White House staff to stay away and stay quiet. The judge said the House trumps Trump.

    • What would be the point? Seriously who does not think there wasn’t constitutional subversion?
      Aside from the squad of Chumps idiots, What a crew huh?

    • Give those people that resigned back there jobs.. when the king has been impeached and out of office. They seem to have a moral compass.

  14. Of course there is a papertrail, all good bureaucrats leave a papertrail like footprints in cement.

  15. How many allies died fighting the Russians in Ukraine during the period this military aid was held up?

    • Ned Thumberland | November 27, 2019 at 10:11 PM | Reply

      @Bezz80 said, “No one is “fighting” Russians in the Ukraine, there are no Russian military inside the Ukraine.”

      *Does “Crimea” right a bell?*

    • Up to his eyes in blood

    • @Bezz80 there absolutely are. why lie

    • @Axios .king Just like stage 4 cancer

    • 1 Would be too many and the number is beyond understanding. Trump should be charged for holding money that was past by congress . Can you imagine if Obama had done this and it go out that people died on account of this act ! Yet this clown does it and his fellow Republicans continue to support trump…I don’t get it . Why their communities are demanding them to do what is right, tells me something that is wrong with our country !

  16. The report also was sent to AG Barr instead of Congress first. So Barr jumped in as trumps personal lawyer again.

    • The IG handed it to the AG who saw it was problematic for Trump (his God) and refused to appoint a special council ergo the House had to do the preliminary…that is what took place behind closed doors. It would have been nice if AG Barr done his job instead of betraying the public.

      You’re able to bat 1000 when you own the AG and DOJ

  17. If kids are booing Trumps wife, he needs to resign like Nixon

    • @Chook
      Wake up buddy, the wall has been going up almost since day one. Over 700 miles have already been completed, and you’re still asleep.

    So here’s the evidence that Dump was behind the whole thing and not Giuliani as Dump is now claiming.

    • Rudy replaced the 1st ” fixer” Cohen who got sent to jail….How many people have we now who subvert the law and boundaries for trump? That includes congress,etc…I would love to see a #…astounding……

  19. I just love the way she says “Question” “Answer”. Question” “Answer”. Question” “Answer”.

  20. The corruption around Trump knows no limits.

    • the Skeptic King | November 27, 2019 at 9:45 PM | Reply

      The only corruption is the DNC. Bill then Hillary then Joe Biden. Where are the missing billions of dollars dirty Joe?
