Wapo/NYT: Trump Whistleblower Complaint Centers On Ukraine | Velshi & Ruhle | MSNBC

79 Comments on "Wapo/NYT: Trump Whistleblower Complaint Centers On Ukraine | Velshi & Ruhle | MSNBC"

  1. We knew Trump was asking Ukraine for Joe Bidens son to be investigated.
    The news is Trump promising a tit for tat.
    Promising something in return is what makes this a crime.

    • @Will Ganness Clutching at straws I see. 🙄🙄

    • John Barleycorn | September 21, 2019 at 1:16 AM | Reply

      @Will Ganness BTW Fact: the European Union and the International Monetary Fund also demanded his firing. Not because he was investigating Hunter Biden but was refusing to investigate real corruption. But nice try with the Strawman fallacy.

    • Actually Trump just suggested Ukraine investigate what happened a while ago when Biden abused his official power to stop UKRAINE investigating his sons firms shady dealings. Biden threatened to stop U.S. funding to force the President of Ukraine to fire the prosecutor. Biden boasted about abusing his office to end the investigation of his son. https://youtu.be/rtO1OigwfVs?t=4. This should disgust you unless you think it’s ok for Democrats to be corrupt.

    • @Happy Tripper See my comment to Will Ganness. Your video doesn’t prove anything. Biden never mentions why in the clip. Could it be that Kyle Kalinkski edited it out of context? 🤔 THINK!

    Please protect that whistleblower

  3. A.G. Barr has the DOJ morphed into a criminal enterprise.🙄

  4. Whistleblower need to be in Protective custody, before A.G. Barr can Epstein him. 🤔Hmmm

  5. So the president threatened Ukraine with sanctions and no aid unless they spy for him? Trump is so dumb.

      Donald trump Dumb?? That’s not breaking news

    • actually all that happened was Trump suggested Ukraine investigate how Biden abused his official power to force the President of Ukraine to fire the prosecutor who was investigating his sons firms shady dealings. The abuse of power which Biden boasted about https://youtu.be/rtO1OigwfVs?t=4. Asking for that to be investigated seems fair enough to me. Or is it ok with you for Democrats to be corrupt? Ask yourself. That’s ok is it?

    • @Happy Tripper Biden is not in the government anymore and has no official powers. He just a private citizen again trying to become a candidate for the next election. The US executive branch, Trump, is the one currently trying to commit extortion against a friendly country Ukraine. Trump did this for his own personal use in the next election and not the US national interest in stopping a hostile Russia against Ukraine.

  6. All this aid “millions” going to countries and we are falling apart here.

    • WHEREisTHEBALANCE | September 20, 2019 at 2:39 PM | Reply

      They are literally being torn apart by the us and Russia on both sides. They deserve aid.

    • Logic B4Religion | September 20, 2019 at 2:40 PM | Reply

      Economic aid is a good thing for the U.S economy. Foreign aid is much like an investment; it helps to forge the foundation needed for low-income countries to build up and become middle-income. Which in turn they buy U.S made products and use U.S services. Foreign aid has attributed $46 billion more in U.S. exports and 920,000 more jobs in the U.S.

    Make America great again folks 😀

  8. Didn’t Muller say during his meeting with Congress that this improper election meddling is still going on and the American people need to be seriously concerned about this……seems like Muller knows what’s happening.

    • @Lindsey Stein What crimes? I’ll let Mueller splain it to you.

    • @Lindsey Stein I guess you didn’t read the bill? The bill states that the Feds will give the States money for election security however, the States do not have to show where or how the money was spent.

      The bill also states that the Governor, Lt. Government and election boards lose control of the election process and the process is turned over to the Federal Government

    • Does anyone remember how the right criticized Hillary Clinton when she said that Russia was meddling in our election process? Whether you like Hillary Clinton or not a whole lot of what she was saying and trying to earn us about has proven to be true. She knew what was going on because she had first hand dealings and knowledge of these countries because of her role as secretary of state.

    • @Mark Godfrey If what you say is true, why didn’t she (Secretary of State); Barrack Obama (President of the US); James Comey (Director of FBI); James Clapper (Director of CIA) or James Brennan do anything?

    • @Jenn smith You still believe trump? Are you serious?

    • @Kevin stevens
      oh, dont get all triggered, little snowflake.
      i understand that you like fake news…..what else do you have? funny how you never get tired of being disappointed.
      Trump will win in a landslide in 2020 because democrats have nothing & he’s done a pretty good job.
      stop getting angry at Trump because you democrats had the worst candidate in the history of mankind….& ya got no one any better this go around.

    • @Jerry Andersen You TDS suffering Moron – That was Biden the evidence is all over the internet.

    • Jenn smith laughable little Jenny the low iq tool. All you turds have got is Snowfkake, triggered. You need to update that playbook. Yeah I am sure Trumpy will win in a landslide. Lmao. What a clown good luck with that dreAm honey cause that is all it is.

    • Will Ganness yeah clown on conspiracy sites. What a low iq tool

  11. How long are ya’ll going to let Orange Cookie Crook damage the Constitution? Talking around in a circle changes nothing.

    • DDKaraokeOutlaw | September 20, 2019 at 5:36 PM | Reply

      @Professor Foxtrot Tell us what is fake about this story why don’t you.

    • Hmmmm a political crook? This is the first time I have heard of this. Crooked politicians what will they think of next.

    • snoop alert I have no problem telling you. First he is damaging the first amendment rights of the press. No matter how he or even you feel about the reporting being done on him, to call the press an enemy of the state is against our constitution. The second amendment guarantees that you can own a gun. That’s what shall not be infringed means. It does not tell you that you can have any type of gun and it does not tell you that you can stock pile guns. For any of you people to claim that you are waiting for the revolution and you need these weapons of war, you are nuts. If you are spouting rhetoric about overthrowing the government you are no better than a terrorist. Donald Trump is making a mockery of our government. He is acting like a dictator. In this country, we have 3 equal branches of government. When Trump starts going around the congress to take money from FEMA, and the military he is hurting our democracy. When the special council finds that he broke the law and congress should act , McConnell and Trump are hurting our democracy. When Trump blackmails a leader of another country for dirt on his possible election opponent. That is breaking the law and hurting our Democracy. You might think that the blue part of this country wants to take your rights away. But the biggest right of all, A woman’s right to chose is what is really under attack. And that is not coming from the blue side. Oh and one more thing. This country is founded on the premise of separation of church and state. More and more, Christians have wormed their way into our politics. America is not a Christian country. We are a country where people of all religions are free to worship as long as they follow our laws. Apparently the Christians in congress and the oval office don’t feel the need to follow the laws. Are we seeing the Trump family mafia working with the Christian Mafia. I think so.

  12. You know Trump is lying when you see his mouth open!

    • Hapax Palindrome
      Nope, he’s talking about trump is focused on the money🤢
      While others recognize the country🇺🇸as being United and
      And Others Love ❤️thy Neighbors under the Golden Rule 🤩

      I Got It 👍🏽🤪

      Or even see him lol

    • Yup. And many times he catches a fishing fly in that mouth. Sooner or later someone will reel that swamp fish in.

  13. Drumph KNOWS he’s in REAL hot water!! He will not be able to get out of THIS..!! PLEASE..Finally A credible Whistleblower!! Should be turned over to Congress..NOW..!! Do your job Nancy Pelosi!! 👌👍

  14. Nixon was a boy scout. Had he known all he had to do was to confess publicly, to break the law in full view of all, instead of trying to cover up, he would have remained in power.

  15. Trump is really worried about the 2020 election and is resorting to anything to eliminate his opponents. Do you really think he cares about using US foreign policy to accomplish his goal? Not at all. Don the Con is a sleazy snake oil salesman willing to sell our national security for his own agenda.

    End the Trump Crime Family Syndicate and Save America.
    Trump is the Worst thing to happen to America since Slavery.
    Trump is Pure Evil.

    • That coming from a democrat the party of racism. F
      Dream on fool

    • Lou Smith

      maybe I should clarify. I only mean that as slow as democrats are working, there’s a good chance that Donald Trump will be dead by the time they get around to prosecuting him. if the FBI busted into the oval office tomorrow, I’d throw a party. seriously my pinatas are getting really dusty.

    • I’m no Trump supporter, but please don’t over-exaggerate this.

  17. If the President has done nothing wrong, then why not release the complaint?

  18. Aethera ab Regnum O.H.M. | September 20, 2019 at 2:48 PM | Reply

    Ukraine is awfully close to Russia? Guiliani was there 4 two months? Hmmm?

  19. America, rise up and take your country back! The experiment has failed but integrity must be restored. Vote this con out so he can answer for his crimes.

  20. Kinda funny how the most corrupt “businessman”, became the most corrupt president ever.
