  1. The obvious question is whether there are enough Republican Senators to vote for the SCUM’s Removal from office. It would be a no-brainer for anyone who understands the Constitution and swore to preserve, protect & defend it. BUT Republicans don’t really care about the Constitution, their concerns are MONEY and getting re-elected.

    It turns out that not everyone has a scandal in Eastern Europe, that is just you man. A friend would say it!

  4. Mulvaney claims that things like this happen all the time. If impeachable offences are so common, we would be very interested in learning of the other examples. As a public servant, he should be prepared to list them. Now that we know he’s hiding information of constitutional violations, confiscate his passport and put him on the rack until he spills the beans.

  5. Too late the dam has broken, and they are drowning.

  6. Mulvaney should hire Giuliani as his lawyer/spokesman. Lol.

  7. Trumps impeachment party is going to make history. Have a designated driver. Honesty, Integrity, Character 2020


  9. It’s hilarious these traitors have so much nerve they think they can confess, but then lie about it…

  10. He is going to be impeached and if the GOP is at all interested in salvaging a sliver of dignity from this catastrophe they should vote for his removal.

  11. I really think that Mulvaney did this on propose, he sees the bus coming and he wanted company under the bus. I don’t think it was a mistake, I believe it was done to implicated all that was involved in the scheme.

    • Wanda Greer k agree and he may be wanting
      To get fired but tell the truth before he goes lol

      Wanda Greer I’ve heard the argument that Trump told him to say that for two main reasons:
      1) It was totally unrelated to what he had been there to talk about. Sure the press asked him about the Ukraine story, but it would have actually been reasonable for him to say, “I’m sorry, but that’s not what I’m here to talk about. Maybe some other time.” And moved on.
      2) Trump didn’t immediately attack him and call him a moron. Because he told Mick to say it and if he called out Mick, it’s like admitting to himself that he was wrong. So he said “exactly the right thing”, it’s everyone else who’s “wrong”.

  12. This is no surprise. When you lie so much, it is highly possible to trip over a lie or two. I’m finding this episode with Mulvaney hilarious, he and Giuliani should get together and form a comedy duo called Dumb & Dumber, they’d be an instant hit with the Dem’s voting base. Unfreakinbelievable!!!

  13. Prediction: Next week Trump will claim he rarely talked to Mulvaney and that Mulvaney occasionally brought him coffee.

    • @Cool Beans change your name to refried beans

    • @Cool Beans the good nited States Court just made the ruling Donald Trump has to show us his eight years of taxes you’re going to be very disappointed Trump trash refried beans

    • Cool Beans Maybe English isn’t your first language, but being self made isn’t when another person gives you hundreds of millions of dollars. Trump is destroying America, not sure if its because he wants to, more likely because he’s stupid and greedy.

    • Yo-yos Tenbucks, There’s quite enough surreal fantasy crap going on, without you adding to it.

    It was not a ‘walk-back’. It was a straight-up contradiction.

  16. We ve allowed this one person to make a mockery of our democracy, to the pleasure of china and russia. Both of which are eager to see the usa fall from its glory.

  17. It’s really scary knowing we have total morons running the country.

    • @urbanimage or if any of the democrats lies where true

    • @Michael Jordan Ah, a true believer. I’d direct you to Fox, but they seem to be losing the faith these days.

    • urbanimage at first I was getting upset reading your comment, thinking “how could this guy not think things aren’t as bad” lol, but then I saw what you were saying. And I completely agree. THANK GOD, these criminals in the White House were dumb enough to get caught. That’s the only saving grace here. If Trump were any percentage of intelligent, he would be much more dangerous.

      Believe me a lot of us have known it has been scary for quite some time..Im sorry for those who are just coming to this conclusion..quite a shock I am sure..take a few days to absorb what this has done to our nation

    • @Michael Jordan the writing is on the wall…it’s so sad you and Trump can’t read

  18. “These are not the droids you’re looking for…..” – Mulvaney

  19. Telling the truth will not be tolerated. Bye-bye Mulvaney.

  20. Imagine when history is written and it says he actually confessed straight to their faces and nothing happened to him or them. The readers will be in total disbelief.
