  1. Trump should also do a role play of his talks with the Russian’s.

    • @88Gibson LesPaul maybe you should ask yourself why they won’t pull an impeachment vote. I hope you didn’t fall for that hoopla that was on TV yesterday

    • @Barbara Witchey I can’t wait till adam has to testify under oath

      @ihave35cents No, not me. I didn’t fall for anything. I’m waiting on the president of Trump “university” to tell me what’s really going on. But…..
      But I’m having trouble getting in touch with him. They say he’s left New York and won’t be back. They said something about selling his hotel and maybe Trump Tower too and moving to a “safe space” in Florida. MAGA!

      @Bob Bobberson Pelosi is forcing Republican Senators to make a decision: to say “I do not approve of Donald Trump and all he’s done and stands for” or “I do approve….” of this divided country that will only become more divided as long as he stays, this daily drama, killing innocent Kurdish women and children, constant attempts to get richer off the presidency, his childish potty-mouth, alienating our allies while kissing Putin’s butt and doing his bidding and more.
      If they do not stand up to him now, he will continue to control them and bully and humiliate them even after he’s out of office and they know it. After he’s out of office if he wants a law passed that will be financially beneficial to him, if they don’t do it, he’ll make public remarks to his base.
      So, they can either stand up to him now, or continue to hate his guts and still bow down to him.

  2. Then release the call so we can read it ourselves!

    The current memo isn’t a transcript. It says so itself.

    Release it!

    • Unfortunately, even the “official” version in the code-word server is still going to be a modified summary. For whatever reason, no recording of presidential calls is made. Instead, a combination of voice-recognition software and transcribers work to produce a rough draft of what each party said. It then goes to a senior NSC official for verification and/or final edit. This latter duty was wholly, or in part, the responsibility of Alexander Vindman, and we know what happened there: Key portions of the call (e.g. trump talking more about Biden, Zelensky mentioning Burisma by name) were either left out or edited out by the time the “transcript” got to Vindman’s desk. Vindman tried to have those portions re-instated, but was denied.

      TL:DR – I don’t think there is faithful transcript of the call, anywhere.

    • @Jack M The Russians, Ukrainians, Israelis, Chinese, probably even the Australians have actual recordings of it. Will we get to hear it?

    • @Jack M Several other countries have recordings though. Recordings exist, it shouldn’t be too hard to acquire them.

    • @Jeremy Backup While Trump’s president, no country is going to turn it over, too many potentail rammifications for them.

  3. Just like he said he would release his taxes.

    • @Daekj32 Right, as you point out, Trump is a POS anti-American, Nut job.

      Impeachment is long overdue.

    • Elvira-Irina Reisinger | November 1, 2019 at 9:33 AM | Reply

      When will that one court tell the public about the tax case?? Trump lost some court battles or whatever. When are consequences coming up??

  4. The call happened exactly as the witnesses stated, FACT! Trump even admitted to it along with Mulvaney on television FACT!……..Trump has no defence and should be IMPEACHED and REMOVED from office period.

    Bribery is expressly prohibited and impeachable in the constitution. Quid Pro Quo is just a fancy Latin phrase that means bribery… so ya… it’s impeachable alright.

    • @Daekj32 What about?! Wah wah wah


    • The TARDIS Named Sexy | November 1, 2019 at 11:41 AM | Reply

      Daekj32 Biden was working for American interests in conjunction with other world leaders AND Ukraine to remove a corrupt person from Ukraine’s government. The person they were removing was refusing to investigate corruption. Once he was removed, with the help of Joe Biden, his replacement then opened an investigation into Burisma, the very same company that Joe Biden’s son worked for. Biden was not working for his own, or his son’s interests. He was helping Ukraine get rid of corruption.

      This Ukraine thing is more extortion than bribery, although similar. I’ll give you $50 not to write that ticket, officer. That’s a straight out bribe.
      I want you to do me a favor, though, before you receive $400,000,000 in military aid, which is to announce an investigation of a US political opponent and his family. That’s extortion, quid pro quo, this for that. Then hold up the aid to fight the Russians to pressure compliance. Way, way worse especially if you’re already staring into the barrel of a Russian tank. Just saying.

    • Kathleen Mitchell, President Trump did not violate any laws in the Ukraine thing.

      Biden may or may not have violated the law in the Ukraine thing.

  6. Yeah, it’s a straight call all right…a straight call to help him out for $400,000,000

    Yeah boy, a Trump Fire Side Chat! Get Barr to bogue it up for him, as always, and then read the lie to us.

  8. Anyone else tuning in just to see if DJT has hung himself in the Lincoln Room yet? 🤗

    He won’t read it because he can’t READ. No matter how many times he says it, it’s a lie.

    • The fact that Trump claims ‘Read that transcript’ proves this fact. It’s only 5 pages, and Trump obviously hasn’t taken the time to read them. SMH

      He keeps asking American’s to read the evidence of his corruption, treason, and betrayal of America, without realizing, the very content he’s asking us to read, proves his crimes and intent. SMH

    • He can’t read he got his money handed to him by his rich pops.

    • Kathleen Mitchell | November 1, 2019 at 11:11 AM | Reply

      @WINSTON SMITH That’s not true. He can read little word. Cat, dog, you know, little words. It is true about the money from his dad. Orangeface would like to make himself out to be self made. He’s not. But then he’s not a lot of things he makes himself out be. Not a stable genius. Not smart. Not tough. Not a racist. What he is, though, is a Russian asset trying to hand us over to Putin. He’s already handed over those who were our allies.

    • @Landskrigaren big time

    • It’s pitiful watching a pack of idiots trying to take down the best president in history

  11. see if D.Trump = DumpsTer fire.

      I’ve been trying to get The Dumpster to catch on but so far no luck. It was used in another post and absolutely said all it needed to say. It reminds me of that old computer expression: Garbage in, garbage out.

    #ForestTrump should release the full unredacted transcripts of both the conversations that were moved into a secure server…….ask yourself why he won’t?…….oh!

  13. he knows his base can’t read. trouble is, he can’t either.

    • Not can’t read, but won’t read. Remember his statement made before he won the election? He said “I love the uneducated”. This statement was not a fond opinion but a clever observation he uses throughout his business career- the uninformed, uneducated will follow to their detriment.

    • Daekj32 awe…you mean #AlternativeFacts

    • This is so sorry, but apparently true! SO SAD

      Hahahhahahaha…he had the best to teach him it would have just taken a lit of humility!

    Just like his taxes still waiting

  15. I would like him to have a fire side reenactment of the pee pee tape.
    Or a reenactment of him and Stormy.
    Or a reenactment and the Hollywood Access tape.

  16. Only his cult believes his 🐂💩 Why was the call moved to a classified server?

  17. Richard Batista | November 1, 2019 at 5:33 AM | Reply

    He claims transparency only after he got caught lock him up

  18. So the president is relieved knowing that “his” republicans fear him. Well, when you are surrounded by cowards, a wise man would know he will not win the war. A fool would be relieved…

    A known liar is supposed to read a transcript of a call and the majority of Americans supposed to believe it ?

  20. Please! Please do a fireside chat! 😂 He’ll say something ridiculous and admit more crimes within 10 minutes. 😂
