  1. When will you people realize that ALL of the Republicans are just as corrupt as Trump

    • You people? Really? The people here are mostly against Trump. I think you believe you’re on Faux News.

    • @Florida Crypto R I agree with you except that the Republican Congress in both Houses support Trump as they fear his base. Party over country and the American public see this sand think ill of the Republican Party.

    • @James Dunn stop watching Government run Fox news

      @James Dunn …
      Actually you will see later. There is 23 reported Senate republicans who are currently for Mr. Bill Weld that it is speculated currently who are fearing retailation for Trump and his supporters however guaranteed to speak out near the end of the trial depending on which way the cards land. This is a plus but to confirm it, look at who all are endorsing both Weld and Wash. The numbers may shock you. It is taking 20 Senate republicans to impeach Trump and 23 endorsed weld and Walsh. There was a report of 30 to 35 in support of weld and Walsh but only 23 actually endorsed so who knows about the others, I am not sure.

    What crimes are open to public opinion?? I was taught the LAW was simply stated – legal or not, right or wrong ! !

  3. Trumps goose is cooked = the GOP just dont know what to do , just go down with the Dictators ship

  4. Are they saying extortion and bribery is not illegal and impeachable?

  5. As terrible as Donny is, his supporters are far worse.

    • And where do the where do the Good Men Who sit by and allow this evil to happen fit in? You do realize that trumps base has two parts right? The direct supporters and the passive supporters. The path of supporters are the ones who are online complaining all day about how bad Trump is but I’ve done nothing to stop him in the three years that he’s been in office. This is a democracy where we have the power to stand up for ourselves and to stop corruption in fact it is our duty. We the people are the ones who have the power so therefore it is our responsibility to protect our democracy. In order for Trump to exist he needs both the people who do nothing and those who directly support him. If either group leaves him he’s finished. Either you stand against him or you are for him. What you say on social media is irrelevant

    • @C J It was taken away but by Nixon and Reagan. KIA for Vietnam was 23,500 when Nixon quashed the Humphrey Paris peace deal all sides had agreed to. Nixon told Cho he would give him more if he held out to sign until November. 35,000 lives later he exited Bretton Woods Accords that regulated trade and currency, so he could go to China and ignore human rights, Bretton Woods addressed. Thus began outsourcing jobs to China that Europe was against too as Bretton Woods stated. Reagan then tripled the national debt, deregulated the airwaves so truth is gone, sold out the taxpayers power over capital by cutting the marginal taxes that paid for the roads those capital gains were made with. http://politicsthatwork.com/graphs/top-20-years-gdp-growth

      @Raging Monk Thank you for reading your history books.I was thinking the same thing.

    • Im a Trump voter. I work. I like playing pool, watching youtube, goin out on dates. Am I awful for disagreements of politics? Cmon.. Media is a business folks.

    • Unfortunately democrats are even worse warmongers than Trump’s supporters, inventing russian hacks, approving all interventions, and believing intelligence agrncies.

  6. It’s time to primary these spineless republicans. By the way I’m conservative.

      Mr. Einstein ” the world will not be destroyed by those who do evil but by those who watch and do nothing ” thank you sir it takes courage here in AC he conned lots of ppl that couldn’t see right through him thamk you again cause this is scary I love this Country 😭

    • Alexandra De Leon | November 2, 2019 at 8:40 AM | Reply

      @MR intel Would you tell your friends I said thank you for they abandoned the Republican party! I knew there were good and not insane ppl but that party gives the impression of treasonous behavior ! Please and thank you

    • German Alonso I quit the Republican Party years ago because I am moderate and a pragmatist. They didn’t want my type. Still lean conservative but I really hope it takes decades for the pubs to recover from this experiment.

    • I’m a Republican too. If these GOP Senators continue their no answer avoid press questions, simple questions, I’m done with them. Their fear of term Limits will start hitting them like bricks.

  7. Incredible corrupt political atmosphere, bad example for democracy to the world ?

    • Drain the swamp and fill the ocean.

    • John Valk… very true. And Donny’s legacy extends further than just politics…
      – Make an agreement with the US? Probably not. It’ll be ripped up.
      – Look to the US to lead in climate change? Definitely not. $ contributors hold the power.
      – Look to the US to set the standard for public safety? Definitely not. Hides behind 2nd Amendment $ contributors.
      – Look to the US to set healthcare standards? Definitely not. Buy insurance if you ever have to visit.
      – Be a military ally of the US? Probably not. We’ll be abandoned.
      – Be a Trade ally of the US? Probably not. Agreements will be abandoned. Tariffs imposed.
      – Use US as an example of democracy. Definitely not. The 1-person/1-vote would be devalued by the Electoral College.
      – Use US as an example of democracy. Definitely not. Contributors expect pay-back. You’ll be hamstrung.
      – Use US as an example of democracy. Definitely not. Appointees are not driven by right/wrong but by save-my-job.
      – Use the US as an example of moral or racial standards?… well, I could continue but you get the idea.
      Sorry America, but Donny has not served you well and also exposed serious flaws.
      A view from afar

      John, Remember Putin saying that liberalism and democracy were failed experiments?
      Trump is the agent of destroying American society.

  8. The main thrust of GOP defense was to deny, when that lie runs to ground, they claim there’s no crime.
    Ultimately, the spineless bunch will sell out their grandma if they get one extra dime or vote! Sick bunch

    • *it’s **#Deny** as long as they can ~ **#Deflect** when they are cornered ~ then **#Denigrate** those who call them out …when they can’t argue the facts as presented, they pivot to smearing the process. it’s their pattern*

  9. Republicans in 2019: extorting a country for personal political gain does not rise to the level of an impeachable offense.

    *FFS how much lower can we go?*

  10. Republicans are too stupid to realise that they are defending the indefensible.

  11. pretty sure extortion and bribery should be impeachable offences

  12. With each new weak defense of Trump’s extortion, Trump’s guilt is confirmed. Impeachment is appropriate.

  13. 10 Obstruction of justice charges. 10! His base has no brain cells left.

  14. True Republicans jumped ship long ago.

    What’s left, are the “rats in the walls” of the White House.
    Feasting on the people.

    GOP is beyond the line of decency, truth, law, constitution. History will judge them hard. A sound person can never vote for them again….

  16. “Democrats are politically motivated” says the party of extortion via fabricated reports against its POLITICAL opponants LOL

    WHATEVER A “REPUBLICAN” SAYS, THE EXACT OPPOSITE HAS ALWAYS BEEN PROVEN TO BE TRUE.

    TRUMPISM = PROJECTION meets HYPOCRISY.

  17. He doesn’t argue that the issue doesn’t rise to impeachment, he claims it’s perfect. That’s a problem.

  18. “Such a difficult position for the republicans to be in…” So republicans just have difficulties with the truth. What a dilemma.

  19. They know he’s guilty. They just don’t care.
