    Let’s keep it simple pimpin’! There’s not enough days in the year to go after this corrupt conman. We have enough to impeach PERIOD!

    • @Ann Ferguson Have you watched the current events? Impossible, they’re behind closed doors, you’re watching one sides leaks that are aligned with you beliefs. That’s how school kids pick teams in the playground not adults. Saying “period” at the end of you statement does not make it true.

    • @Joy Phillips this is what…? The 4th time you have bothered to copy and paste this non-sense in this single chat? zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…………….

    • tony simon The Republicans did just the same thing when they were in the majority. The former 😊Speaker of the House Rep. Boehner and the majority passed the rule to allow what the Democrats to do what their doing today, so it’s not out hate but a change the former majority Congress thought up. The 2015 House rules allowing close-door impeachment proceedings was again their baby.
      Besides those clowns are already allowed to see what is going on for themselves…they sit on those committees. But they wanted to act like children and ordered pizza. Pitiful.

    • @Ann Ferguson If you’re talking the Benghazi investigation, it wasn’t an impeachment. It was public but many of the intel agency’s representatives refusing to answer questions that were either classified or the topic was under current investigation. Comey alone used this method over 100 times in a day. Only classified matter were moved behind closed doors so national secrets weren’t exposed. That’s a bit different to Schiffs investigation. None of it has been classified so why behind closed doors? Why can’t the minority call witnesses? If he wants to use 2015 as an example then they should of had a vote for the investigation an the minority was allowed to bring witnesses but he’s cherry picking.

      It won’t make a difference in the end as it will be public as some point it will all be made public just like the Mueller report and they will be left with egg on their face. Ultimately it must go to the senate and it will die there because according to the house, if you’re in the majority, you do as you please.

      As for the acting like children, do you actually believe that the Dems are acting like adults? That’s laughable.

      @tony simon Let me chime in. What the Democrats are doing behind closed doors is, investigating, questioning and gathering information. This is the same process that was used for Nixon and Clinton. Once evidence was gathered in both cases it was THEN made public, because they initiated the impeachment inquiry. Regarding the Benghazi inquiry Hillary Clinton wanted it to be public, and after years of investigating she was cleared. You are right the Senate will not Impeach Trump, in their eyes it’s ok to blackmail a foreign country to investigate an AMERICAN citizen.

    It’s ok if the impeachment plan goes beyond Ukraine, as long as it goes after the stupid orange Pussygrabber…👌🏼

    This is your time to shine, go get em Bolton

    • @markj6700 you’re right- look at my comment on top- it will explain if he won’t come and why…I still hope he will ( if patriotism is strong enough, but….)
      To be honest, I would rather country remember me as person buried Trump, than person who wrote the millions contract book about all Trump’s corruptions, crimes he did front of “me”. That for me WILL BE THE BEST PRIZE EVER, ( not money from book)
      So time will say is it still ALL ABOUT MONEY

    • Ohnoitsthatguy “Time to shine”? Get who? Dems and Bolton: warmongers in love.

    • Kay Huh? Why would it feel weird when you’re both warmongers?

    • @Scorch428 It says “I’m the Bizzaro World Captain Kangaroo!”

      @Nevyn of OZ 1973 At the time of the Falklands war, the Argentine dictator Leopoldo Galtieri was asked how he, as a right-wing anti-communist, could accept aid from the Soviet Union. He answered: “In international politics, there are no friends, only interests”. It is naive to expect morality or consistency in any nation’s foreign policy.

  4. Impeach and remove Trump for the Ukraine crime. After he’s out prosecute him for the Mueller investigation findings of obstruction of justice and perjury over Russia.

  5. A cover up? Was there any questions about that? This administration has been a total coverup, from day one, these guys have used their office to enrich themselves, their friends and families at the expense of the tax payers. Follow their money and you will find the trail of corruption.

    • @Will Storm
      Just like Will Smith in MIB : Only the Best of the Best .
      #maga: MANY ARE GETTING ARRESTED. & Hopefully more !

    • @Aljoscha Long As a retired journalist who covered politics since 68′, I now write books. You should learn to read. I suggest you start with ‘All the Kremlin’s Men,’ by Mikhail Zygar.

  6. It’s reassuring to hear Republicans acknowledge Trump’s “high crimes”

  7. It’s not a cover-up, it’s a comb-over.

    • @Scott Wilhelmspaedophile trump aka individual one has got no money at all. Paedophile trump aka individual one has lost all his daddy money.

    • @Lapin074CURRENTLY loans from Putin.

    • If I could, I’d give you an additional 100 “thumbs-up” for that one. 🙂

  8. Yeah like the Hag Kellyanne Conway. the only place she’d be able to get a job is Fox so called News like Slarah Slanders.

    • Kellyanne has a wasted face, but her body still has some good patches. Don´t call her a hag, she´s still usable.

    • Smellycan & Huckabeast. Could be an animated series like “Ren & Stimpy” but without all the class.

      Lapin074 Excellent! ROFL 😂😁

      it’s not fox as other people have said it’s the TRUMP NETWORK …. which is why here in this building no one watches it … we wish the cable /dish companies would block it entirely from broadcasting bah humbug rated

  9. they’re going to put together Ukraine and Russia and the money laundering and mottis Operandi

  10. “I want everyone to look at the details of the case.” – t’rump
    “Impeachment it is, then!” – everyone else.

    it would take 50years to impeach him on all his crimes in last 3 years. shockingly, being so corrupt is working in his favor. We are all EXHAUSTED hearing his filthy name.

    Bolton was a grenade that went off, when he said it was a drug deal, and to report it to the legal dept. How can people pretend that everything was fine, after that? We still have people that know right from wrong, that God. Even people like Bolton. I kind of fell bad about the negative stuff that I’ve said about him, now. Even Lis Cheney seems to have a soul. Strange.

  13. The civil servants see the the risks to our democracy, and they know that the American people would not approve of what the Trump Administration is doing if they knew the truth.

  14. Impeach and Remove – for the sake of our country.

  15. Let’s see how morons at Fox shred one of their own, after Bolton testifies 😁

    • I never thought I’d see the day I had any respect much less faith in John Bolton, but I think he may just tell the truth.

    • Faux News: “John Bolton! RINO! Never Trumper!!”

      Trump: “John Bolton who? Never heard of him. Oh, thaaaat John Bolton. He was just a covfefe boy. For a few days.”

  16. Not all have drank the Orange Kool-Aid.

    The Trump “presidential” library will be built in a correctional facility

  18. The GOP has been squirming since the Impeachment Inquiry was announced….
    They have turned a blind eye to Trump’s transgressions since he came to Office…
    Too late now, the horse has bolted…..

    Follow the money
    He’s been laundering for years

    • Apparently Giuliani’s Ukrainians were guiding dirty Russian money to trumps real estate dealings.

    • The Graft & Greed is on display at 1100 Pennsylvania Ave, While the Man who would be King (Ole Swamp Creature) Resides @ 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
      The Washington Post reported that Saudi-funded lobbyists booked an estimated 500 nights there, over a period of three months, at a cost of more than $270,000. In DC, as part of a delegation to discuss bilateral trade with the president at the White House, Pakistan’s minister for maritime affairs also attended meetings on trade at Trump’s hotel⁠. Facing lawsuits for emoluments violations, the Trump Organization has donated more than $340,000 to the U.S. Treasury over the past two years, which it claims are its profits from business with foreign governments. But its explanation for how it calculates the figure acknowledges it’s flawed, in part by requiring guests to self-report if they are with a foreign government. And the Trump Org hasn’t revealed if that figure is independently audited, nor has it shared the receipts.

      Old-world corruption has taken root in the Republican Party too. Of the 33 people to have served in Trump’s cabinet, 25 of them have been spotted at his DC hotel.⁠ So have at least 6 of the 17 Republican members of the House Oversight and Reform Committee. Rep. Jim Jordan, the top GOP lawmaker on that panel, has spent about $22,000 of campaign funds at the hotel while also trying to thwart House investigations into its lease and Trump’s finances. Twenty-six out of 53 Republican senators have either appeared at the hotel or are affiliated with campaigns or committees that have spent funds there. ⁠Combined, the Trump hotel DC has taken in more than $1.1 million from just the Republican National Committee, Trump’s campaign, and committees headed by Vice President Mike Pence and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. And over the summer, pro-Trump super PAC America First Action shattered the $500,000 mark in total spending, just at that property.⁠ The president profits from all of this business.

      Like any premium product, of course, access to the president is multitiered. Anyone can walk into the Benjamin Bar & Lounge, the airy lobby bar that occupies the central atrium of the Old Post Office Building. There you’ll find the lesser swamp creatures: lobbyists, lapel-pin-wearing association members who flew in to push for their issues, the wealthy white kids whose parents can subsidize their congressional internships—anyone who can afford drink prices that were jacked up twice in the five months between its soft opening and its owner’s inauguration.⁠ The promise of proximity to power, and an occasional glimpse of the president, also attracts B-list political celebrities on the fringe of Trumpworld: long shot GOP candidates hoping to snag an endorsement, low-level Trump political appointees trying to project importance, Fox News guests and castoffs (but rarely current hosts), Liberty University alumni reveling in bounties foretold by the prosperity gospel, and the holder of an exclusive Trump gold-card membership,⁠ Rudy Giuliani, who seems to hold court so often in the lobby that a photo with him seems like a hotel amenity.⁠ The lobby is probably the only place in the world where journalists might want to take a paparazzi-style photo of Sebastian Gorka, and hotel management is ready to block the shot.

      But you won’t find cabinet secretaries or members of Congress ringing a bell while a server sabers open their bottle of champagne in the lobby. Sure, they’ll pose for photos there, but the A-listers (for DC, anyway) are on their way to the grand Presidential Ballroom, Lincoln Library, Franklin Study, or other meeting room for a private fund-raiser (a term with a dual meaning at the hotel, as many fetch money for both the president’s business and campaign). Mike Pence reportedly made at least 11 visits to his boss’s DC hotel, but if you wanted to hang there with the vice president (and, sometimes, Mother too), you might have to pay A-list prices.
