  1. This is just getting worse and worse.

      ” *Worse and Worse* ” Yeah for Trumpy , his Muppets and Supporters. But for the majority of the country, it is leading to the best present Congress has ever given in nearly 200 years since Lincoln. The Impeachment and removal of trump will have major celebration parties going on around the country.

      I really do not think it will take place before March up to April as there is so much that needs to be looked into but I do hope Congress achieves it before the end of the year. Regardless, I myself will be throwing a huge party and ordering a lot of fireworks to set off on this special day.

    • Florida Crypto R Bravo I feel the same way we’re going to party we’re going to party:-) 🙂 🙂 vote blue Bernie Ann Warren 🙂

    • Naw, this is getting better & better! Government = corruption! People need to understand this.

    • GOP’ers are digging in. Screw them!

    With Trump 👉every single day bombshells in his presidency..the mother and father of all bombs Yet to Come
    Embrace for the WORST America 🇺🇸

    • My view as an outsider, America will survive Trump…if nothing, America will be stronger. Sometimes attacking your weakness is a wake up call. It is not always good to be too comfortable in your strength.

    • @H G , Thank you and that is a great observation.

    The wheels are slowly falling off, all he has are racially charged responses, his base of freaks love it & his sick ego loves it!😵🙄

  4. If you have nothing to hide, why would you tell officials not to testify? Hm 🤔

      @Ken Evanska Original

    • Woo hoo to all on this thread!
      👏👏👍🌼👏👏
      NOTHING BUT TRUTH HERE.

    • What I still don’t understand is how people from the Senate who held a “decent” work record keep going along with all these corruption cases and cover up all his crimes. Why???

    • @N Valz – The answer might be money. If they stay on Trump’s good side then they might get appointed by the President to special committees for which they will earn more M-O-N-E-Y!!!

  5. Worst president ever.

  6. “This is my most disturbing day in Congress so far”. This is good news!

  7. The coward in chief is scared!

  8. Republicans should remember who violated the Constitution , and do they want a president above the rule of law

  9. trump is a traitor, plain and simple. If you support him, you too are a traitor

    • Adam Shiff: “It will be said of House Republicans,

      When they found they lacked the courage to confront the most dangerous and unethical president in American history,
      They consoled themselves by attacking those who did.”

    • John Gailey plain and simple a double agents for Putin

    • @Wayne Harris we all know Putin wants Trump elected again, so that makes no sense. Our intelligence community’s have unanimously agreed Russia is trying to help Trump. This is the classic Trump supporters “what ever you say bounces off me and sticks to you” defense. You sound like a traitor

      The administration have nerve to talk about the misuse of taxpayers money, that’s a joke coming from this administration, as much money that’s already been wasted by this administration in more ways then one. Give the American People a break! When the majority of the people knows Trump has cause many Americans who knows he’s the one who put American allies in danger, some dead over bribes of an investigations to clear Russia interference in U.S. 2016 Election, and wanting American “Allies to take the blame” and then insist they dig up dirt on another Presidential opponent. What is this world coming too! Besides the end. Bringing up lynching serve know purpose other then feeding his base. But what I want to ask Trump’s base do you believe Trump will fight for you other then with his mouth or a stroke of a pen? Do you think he will show you loyalty, like he expects you? Ask some people that’s done business with him! Has he proven he would die for his Country as so many of our Military men and women have even if they being white, black, brown, orange, yellow, or red? Ask yourselves has he prove to be worth standing for? Will he do it for you? Other than doing it with a stroke of a pen? This is just a scenario: Evil like to start stuff then sit back and watch it play out, but only sit back and instigate stuff to start. But not going to put one hand in it to help you!! I’m sure you have your opinions!
      It’s a song that goes: WHAT HAS HE DONE FOR YOU LATELY!!

    Trump is always the victim.. Always… Hung himself w his own rope….

  11. There are two types of people called to testify in this matter: Trump cronies and patriotic Americans. There is no mistaking one for the other.

    p.s. Read the Bill Taylor statement. It’s damning.

    • And two camps of citizens: One believes he has a mandate from God, one who is ready for this criminal to be found guilty

    Der Swampmeister slowly being sucked down into the fetid ooze of his own corruption.Adios mfkr.

  13. Mr. Trump’s presidency is hanging on a thread.

  14. You know what would be an interesting poll?
    Instead of asking: Would you like to see Trump removed from office? ask…
    What would you like to see happen to Donald Trump?
    Now that would be …instructive.

  15. This isn’t a presidency. This is a really,really,really bad reality clown show.

    These testimonies back up each other to be true and not lies spewed by trump.

    • Andrew Mitchell | October 23, 2019 at 3:44 AM | Reply

      There is some discrepancy with Sondland’s testimony: the expectation is that Sondland will be recalled and given a chance to explain or refute.

  17. He is a threat to the country. Why dont they shut down his twitter account? He is too irresponsible to have one

  18. This is why he’s a traitor in US history…

  19. There has been such a turn over in this White House he doesn’t even remember that he appointed him

  20. He’s trying to get re-elected and the american public is chanting: “NO MORE YEARS”
