  1. This has happened before; this has Bill Barr written all over it.

  2. nothing makes me more happy than the screams from a million trolls

    • @Free Speech the trolls in my replies here are priceless – like – they think their replies mean something when I specifically pointed out my affinity for trolly screams

    • @Mj F I always try to decide if they are real on-the-job trolls, or the mindless 38% base of the base Cousinbrotheruncledaddy Family-Stick Inbred Party. Or both. Nothing bothers Cadet Bone-Spurs while he sits there throwing $h*t against the fan. Create as much chaos as possible and change the story at every turn. With all the $h*t flying, it is only those that live in the cesspool that are not bothered by it.

      ☮☯💖😎🙌 Peace.

      skip michaels lol, you had to remove all doubt, didn’t you ?!

  3. Acting DNI should be arrested. He had no business giving over the whistle blower transcript to the WH. Jail them all.

    • @williamstewart, in terms of impeachment it would fall under the rubric of abuse of power.  Having a private citizen, i.e. Giuliani, doing the work that should be the purview of the State Department was an improper use of presidential powers.  Just another in the undeniable laundry list of crimes:  campaign finance violations, witness tampering, obstruction of justice and emoluments violations.  You really need to pay attention, it’s free.  I didn’t think it possible, but it appears the Republican Senators are actually starting to see the writing on the wall.

  4. There are a lot of trolls and bots here. They’re freaking out about this story. Good.

    • @SpecialSP living up to my name would be a very tall task indeed but in this instance I have done so quite are the one who needs to do a little research I believe the total number of Democrats switching to Republicans was three. Harley what I consider a party-wide transformation

      s r fascism is a far right ideology you imbecile. Like your far right president that hints at staying in power longer then the law allows and you fascist applauded his fascist tendencies. 🙄

    • @David Carter
      “or any lost elections.”
      so you were sleeping during the midterms were you?

    • still butthurt from 2016 still need your safe place. lol democraps have nothing again. another example of the socialist left wasting our time. trump 2020.

  5. Merriam-Webster updating their dictionary to include new definition for ‘Republican.’  “A hypocritical regressive racist obstructionist who doesn’t need a reason when treason is in season.”

  6. Should we expect to see some rats on this ship darting hither and thither assessing their survival options.

    Most likely, ….. yes.

  7. please stop talking about the constitution unless you are ready to use it.

      @Michael Gillliam
      Trump is not “over” Hillary. He STILL is trying to get her investigated

    • Michael Gillliam | September 26, 2019 at 11:28 AM | Reply

      @mary johnson no joke. The American people are fed up with all the investigation and nothing coming from it. ABC did a poll yesterday and 64% wanted no impeachment inquiries

    • Michael Gillliam | September 26, 2019 at 11:30 AM | Reply

      @mary johnson and no matter what happens in the special council it takes 65% to impeach. The votes aren’t there

    • Michael Gillliam | September 26, 2019 at 11:35 AM | Reply

      @Lilbit 55 doubtful. Congress dosen’t have the votes to impeach. And if it happens to pass the house, it would never pass Senate. That means he will still be in office, and still get reelected 2020

  8. The Great Dragon’s proud visage is shone.

    “I’m great!”, “I’m bright!”, “I did it on my own!”

    The dragon is cast into a darkness of its own.

  9. He initially said “European nations” were not “contributing”. The EU has given over THREE BILLION EUROS to Ukraine.

  10. With all those committees investigating then impeachment should be an easy decision. Just do it. No question with all the investigations and lawsuits

  11. At least ‘we’ said ‘ENOUGH!’, and History will record that.

    • And that’s about all that would happen, sadly enough, Trump will continue and go on to keep ruining the US, empowering racists and continue spewing conspiracy theories about climate change and mystery hurracaines in Alabama.

    • Marce Z. With much less power.

    • @Marce Z what do you mean keep ruining the US ?America is in a better position by all metrics than it has ever been in history thanks to our president. You got the TDS bad son you need to open your eyes and pay attention. Trump is not a racist Democrat is the party of racism

    By announcing it officially, it grants them more authority on how the investigation is actually run. Congress, according to Supreme Court history, has the authority to run a much wider investigation then the Judicial branch of our Government. According to the Constitution, a President can be impeached for “high crimes and misdemeanors,” technically, a speeding ticket is a misdemeanor.

  13. Politicians get away with way too much corruption on both sides of the aisle. Demand more from your government✊🏼

  14. Part B of impeachment – put Barr in jail.

  15. The ‘Art of Demonic Activity’ via Trump’s
    ‘Lies & Corruption’
    does not compare to any previous President.
    He is in a Class all by himself when it comes to

    • Yes, and the Right has the gall to try & put him in the same category as the Clintons & Barack Obama. “To trigger a Democrat, tell him a lie. To trigger a republican, tell him the truth, confront him with proof and watch his head explode.”

    Trump should have been impeached over a year ago.

  17. “One can always rely upon the Americans to do the right thing, when once they have finally exhausted every other possibility.”   W Churchill.

  18. The first real effort of Fascism to take hold in the USA.
    This should be a warning fo strengthen the independence of the branches of government so checks and balances are more strict.
    I am still concerned looking at it as a European because an effort by a smart wannabe dictator could end in a other way.
    Now is hope but is was a warning.
    A warning where Pelosi should wake up the cult followers and tell them that it was a nightmare that started nice but the cult leader poisoned their view.
    He himself said: What you seeing and what you’re hearing is not what is happening.
    It is time to wake up from a fewer dream, your great grandfathers fought here in Germany against fascism and would have warned much louder over the wannabe dictator.

  19. And people thought Tricky Dicky was a crook. No. 37 had nothing on No. 45, the present incumbent.
