  1. Did he say that Trump omitted some parts of the call? The whistleblower was right to alert others about call. No wonder the White House won’t release the voice call. It’s littered with dirt on Trump.

    Wow! How come the corrupts always almost never answer for their crimes…. #impeachtrump #impeachpence #pussygrabber45

    • P. Jesson Collins impeach? Why? Oh yeah! Because the Dems lost in 2016 and know they’re losing the next year .. scramble scramble ..

    The president is a first class crook and that is fist hand knowledge with most citizens.

      @Rodolfo Saluto, and the most terrible that is those republicans who are defending for him. I wasn’t care about the party before. Now the GOP is trash name in my mind because their crooked and blind ratio too high.

    • I think you’re talking about Obama
      And we would be in real trouble if billery was in office

    • Meanwhile, Minority leaders questions were not allowed to be asked or answered. Still just a coup….

  5. “What is the difference between organized crime and the White house?
    The White house isn’t organized.”

    • @Raymond Loya Biden was backed by congress. It was for the good of the country. Trump’s quid pro quo was for personal benefit. Do you see the difference?

    • @Joe McAdam Lmfao!!!

    • @Marian Taylor sounds good
      And his son was over there for the good of The country i dont buy it

    • Raymond Loya so many ‘what abouts’…. did IMF threaten to stop $40billion (US aid was $1B for perspective) in ukraine aid unless shokin was removed or not? If you were ukraine, which aid would’ve put you into action? $1B or $40B? This aint rocket science nor is it government secrets. You don’t need the WH to release transcripts to know about these things. Google is your friend. Did republican senators (Rob Portman, Mark Kirk, and Ron Johnson) cosign a letter in support of holding the aid until shokin is removed during biden’s time or not? These are all true. So let go of the false narratives and conspiracy theories. Yes, it’s safe to remove your tin foil hat now. Good day!

  6. Next FOX will say you can’t trust anyone who’s glasses are sometimes crooked.

      wasn’t it fox news that said saving the republic is more important than the constitution. fox news needs to protect there Republicans. so that keep there high salerys. for spreading lyes.

  7. Yay! Another hero in the fight for Constitutional integrity, and allegiance to democracy!

  8. *Like a Lt. Col. knows anything. It’s not like he’s a **_real_** Colonel. I like my heroes **_UN-wounded._** He’s not even smart enough to fake bone spurs to stay out of the military. And if he had any brains, he would realize The Constitution is phony. And he works for a living, rather than just swindle other’s out of **_their_** money.* <-- The way Trump's brain works, be prepared for Trump's mouth to repeat such *_unpatriotic insanity._*

  9. Russia is definitely pulling the strings on our executive branch

    • Well…the CIA made the re-election of Jelzin possible in 1996 when it obstructed the Communist Sjuganow from getting elected with false information spread over Russia’s news channels, by bullying him and by voting booth manipulation. This led to a massive economic downfall of the Russian economy and a lot of Russian households empoverished.

      And who did Jelzin later nominate? Correct! Putin.
      So the US brought this upon itself. You basically punch yourselves in the face.

    • @brown box None of That is true . America is GREAT , and Trump puts America FIRST .

      That is what happwns when Money is on the line instead of what is best for our Country! Republican policies the last 50 years has been about Greed and
      The Nixon administration saw an opportunity (Financial kickbacks) opening up Trade with China, then opening up trade with all of Southwest China! Those poli ies woukd have been fine if the Reoublicans had prevented Our Middleclass
      paying Jobs not being able to be moved to those Countries undercutting American Companies operating on American Soil! Profitable for Corporations, but ecomonic disaster for American Workers!
      70 years of blood, sweat and death for thousands
      of Americans fighting for Union protections of their jobs! Now tbousamds of Companies enjoy billions in profits with sweatshop
      asian workers and undercutting American Soil company competition!
      Companies, like Westinghouse Appliances,
      Corningwear, West point Fabric Corporation, Mattel Toy Corporation ect…! These are oy a few of the Middleclass jobs allowed to move production into these 3rd world countries to exploit the 50 cent – $1 a day cheap labor, and unregulated product safety standards!
      The Reoublicans are destroying our Country with Greed!

  10. What’s interesting is it seems the best the GOP have to offer for 2020 is Trump.

  11. It’s like these republicans are throwing their careers and reputations In the trash while checking into the trump tower !!!! They are garbage

  12. Trump and his administration are the most corrupt administration in US history

  13. I’m literally sick to my stomach seeing our military officials and diplomats get eviscerated by a joke of a party. Notice that McConnell is dead SILENT lately.

  14. Think this over: you’ve got a true patriot with a PURPLE HEART who went back into service after an injury sustained in the field, protecting America. On the other hand you’ve got a draft dodging president with so called bone spurs who lies about his lies. Who do you believe. I mean come on, the defending of this muppet in chief has just gone way too far. As for the people attacking Vindman, SHAME on all of you, you’re a total disgrace. Let’s put you in the front line and see how you get on. This is what Trump has done to America – got people attacking heroes. It’s simply disgusting.

  17. How come everyone refers to the whistleblower as him/he? Do they know the gender?🤔🤔

    First solid nail in Trumps coffin, Bolton will be the death blow.
