  1. Being the “Devil’s advocate” is supposed to be metaphorical, not a job description!

      From the beginning—that is to say, from November 9, 2016—impeachment has been a cause in search of a trigger, an occasion. The president’s enemies hoped they’d finally hit pay dirt when an anonymous “whistle blower” alleged that the president made, or attempted to make, foreign aid to Ukraine contingent on that country’s government investigating his likely 2020 challenger. Or, in other words, that Trump attempted to “collude” with a foreign power to influence an American election. Where have we heard that before? It only took two years, $32 million, 19 lawyers, 40 FBI agents and other staff, 2,800 subpoenas, and 500 witnesses for a special counsel to “not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” according to the Mueller Report. Yet here we go again?

    • Adolfo Cardoza is an idiot

    • Bellicose Ataraxia and yet look how many tens of millions were recovered and how many people plead guilty and are in jail.

    • @Ed S So, the ends justifies the means?
      It’s ok to defraud the FISA court and trample on American citizens rights as long as we are able to confiscate money and put away people on crimes that were either declined for prosecution a decade prior (Manafort) or process crimes tar others aren’t held to the same standard of (Flynn)?
      Why wasn’t the Podesta’s arrested, tried and sentenced with Manafort, considering they were all working together?
      Why hasn’t McCabe, Comey, Hillary Clinton, ect all charged with Perjury considering there is plenty of video evidence of them lying to Congress?
      Why are people so ok with enforcing the laws on some, but not on others?

  2. Abuse of power is exactly why we have an impeachment clause. Come on, man.

    SHAM GOP TRIAL

    • You mean sham impeachment by the democrats in the first place

      Inspector General Michael Horowitz finally damned the FBI during his testimony Wednesday when he said he would be “skeptical” that there was anything accidental in the egregious catalog of errors the bureau committed in its spying operation on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. It took five hours of questioning about the FBI’s motivations, but Horowitz, prudent and impartial as he is, finally delivered the money shot. Asked by Republican Sen. Mike Crapo if the 17 “significant errors or omissions” he found in the FBI’s surveillance operation could possibly be “accidental,” Horowitz said: “I would be skeptical.”He went on to explain that “the answers we got were not satisfactory [so] we’re left trying to understand how could all these errors have occurred over a nine-month period on three teams hand-picked, on … the highest-profile case of the FBI, going to the very top of the organization, involving a presidential campaign.” The Justice Department’s independent inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, and his team uncovered a staggeringly dysfunctional and error-ridden process in how the F.B.I. went about obtaining and renewing court permission under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA, to wiretap Carter Page, a former Trump campaign adviser. Most of those targets never learn that their privacy has been invaded, but some are sent to prison on the basis of evidence derived from the surveillance. And unlike in ordinary criminal wiretap cases, defendants are not permitted to see what investigators told the court about them to obtain permission to eavesdrop on their calls and emails.

Executive privilege is the Constitution…..the Democrats are trying to convict via ESP…. what they believe President Trump was thinking face the facts, the White House provided Mueller more than 20,000 pages of materials, and the campaign has provided more than 1.4 million pages. It says more than 20 White House personnel have given interviews, including eight from the White House counsel’s office. Seventeen campaign employees “plus 11 additional individuals” have given interviews, Trump’s attorneys say. “The cooperation and transparency are unprecedented,

      CNN Brought in felon Michael Avenatti every single day and even anointed him as the next president. Where was your fake out rage then?

  5. Do trumps enablers NEED a strategy? Don’t we already know Senate Republicans won’t remove trump

    • Matt Gaetz congressman | January 25, 2020 at 10:33 PM | Reply

      Why would you want to remove Trump? I’ve read the articles of impeachment very carefully first of all there’s zero clams listed. And the articles were sent over with no bipartisan support. In fact the only bipartisan was against impeachment when three of your Democrat friends came over to our side and one even left your party and joined the Republicans because it was so corrupt.

    • Matt Gaetz congressman Trumps Republican enablers in Congress have no intention of removing this corrupt dishonest lawless pathological liar criminal. Why do you support a president who’s told over 16 THOUSAND documented lies since taking office and is using the presidency to financially enrich himself and his family

      the Democrats claim Trump dog-whistled Putin to release Hillary’s emails….he was joking, evidently above Democrats I.Q. but if he was Putin’s puppet why would he need to ask…and where are the emails…actually President Obama was Putin’s toyboy, promising off-mic to sell out America’s nuclear defense…add it up…Obama knew Putin was invading Crimea…Trump withheld aid to Ukraine for 55 days…Obama 4 years…even had his ambassador write on op-ed to say no military aid for Ukraine…was so assured Hillary was going to win he did nothing to stop Russia’s interference in 2015…instead he sent Ukraine blankets and box lunches…Trump sent tank-killing weapons and as far as Russia goes sold out 20% of our uranium he and Hillary probably sent to North Korea and Iran and as far as Russia and Trump is concerned President Trump is tougher on Russia in 18 months than Obama in eight years https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/397212-president-trump-is-tougher-on-russia-in-18-months-than-obama-in-eight

    • @Bellicose Ataraxia <--Euthanasia is your best option ✔

    • You were exactly right. Trump asked to do us a favor. The United States of America. And investigate the crimes committed by crooked Joe Biden and Hunter Biden when he did a quid pro quo right on camera threatening to withhold $1 billion in American taxpayer money if Ukraine did not fire the investigator investigating his cocaine addicted son hunters corrupt gas company paying him $83,000 per month. Typical Democrats here in America, no crimes their. Lets MoveOn

    • @Bellicose Ataraxia The president is in control of all Foreign policies. He has suspended a lot of aid to foreign countries. He ran his campaign on cleaning out corruption and the swamp.

  7. So basically his strategy is lie act like a clown lie again then tell the GOP to fix the whole trial SMH 🤔

      88Gibson LesPaul no my leftist friend. Actually you’re wrong. Donald Trump won the overall popular vote by a staggering 7.5 million votes in America’s ‘heartland’ and all the swing states.

      Hillary Clinton overtook that lead in one state.

      Illegal migrant infested California.

      The poster child for the liberalism and failed policies, urine, feces, hyperdermic needles, and thousands and thousands of homeless tent encampments on every street corner.

      The founding fathers were geniuses.

      They knew that one radical crazy liberal state could destroy the rest of America.

      Thank goodness they created something that angers leftists.

      Whatever reputation he had after left defending OJ Simpson, Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein has turned to pure Dust. Did he believe that he was going to end his career with bells and whistles? He’s ending his career with nothing but SHAME AND HUMILIATION FOR DEFENDING THESE MAGGOTS.

  11. trump’s* plan is to keep lying and denying

    • And your plan is to murder more babies once he’s gone.

    • @Ziroidex you changed the topic from trump’s wickedness so quickly that I nearly got whiplash! Do you have anything substantive to add about trump’s* removal or are you just a dim-witted maga loudmouth?

    • @Ziroidex How is this relevant? Who is killimg babies? Is the individual right to own a gun the same as an individual right over one’s body? The subject here though is over the destruction of article 2 of the constitution. Stay focused, this is not a time for obfuscation.

    • @Bellicose Ataraxia So you are saying that Trump can break the law, but not anybody else?

    • @Congressman Jim Jordan LOL..There doesn’t have to be an underlying crime to be impeached cult member. Just ask Graham, he said it himself. And just there IS a crime, or perhaps you missed the GAO report that states traitor boy BROKE THE LAW when he withheld the Congress approved funds..And just FYI, a sham trial isn’t going to make traitor boy politically stronger, it will simply spell the end of the GOP. Only traitors will ever vote for them again. Enjoy when #3 is taken into custody come Jan. of 2021. He has a whole stack of felonies already waiting for him….

    • It’s gonna get thrown out for no crime.. The dems hate Bernie they are keeping him tied up there..

    • @SJA and the paranoia

    • is that you hilary

    • You are correct, anyone who says he or she, assuming genders here sorry, is not ignorant is a fool. Of course I am ignorant, I do not know everything about politics. I just know I was fooled in 2015/16 by the media especially CNN and their famous poll that HILLARY WILL WIN. I was fooled then, never again. I will not even believe FOX. I listen to everything, read as much as I can and make my determination. I like Trump because he is independent in action and thought, he does talk too much crap, but he is authentic, loves this country and is working very hard. What makes you not like Trump? Please be specific, do not tell me he is a dictator or racist or some such nonsense. Does Trump just mess up you view of the world and this country?

    • @ryvr madduck they only argument they have is orange man bad

    • Mueller already debunked that.
      Try to keep up.

  18. Is he paying for this interview!!!not when you telling the legislators what to bring into the law!!

  19. If this bozo didn’t have Moscow Mitch rigging this, these lawyers wouldn’t have shown their faces. If someone is holding the victim down, Dershowitz is there to climb on.
