  1. It’s crazy how if Rudy lies, He’ll goes to jail, If he tells the truth he goes to jail anyway, It’s a win win situation.

  2. If 45’s call is perfect and fantastic why not let Mulvaney, Pompeo, Pence, Giuliani etc tell us all about it? TESTIFY

    • majorgeeek Still harping over uranium? Geez you are dense. Clinton didn’t sell Russia uranium. She was on a committee that voted to approve the sale. There was a total of 9 government committees that approved the transaction. Trumpkins are stuck on , but but Hillary! The above information was found on .gov and NOT a partisan article.

    • @Sagir32 – so I see it’s true that the Clinton Foundation received undisclosed millions from Uranium One stakeholders such as the $2.35 million from board Chairman Ian Telfer and the Obama administration did allow the Russians to acquire domestic nuclear assets critical to US national security but according to you that was a bi partisan decision – yeh sure next you will be telling me that Hillary will be the 46th President

    • Sondland testified “Yes, there was a quid pro quo. Pence, Pompeo, Mularkey, Perry were all in the loop… ” Enough said

    • @Tony Ng – what is the quid pro quo then, smartass?

    • @Lake Bass – the problem with your comment is that the Dems have tried for 2 years and cannot remove Trump – why? because they cannot find any crime – however the real criminals will be brought to justice and it will be great when US attorney Durham indicts Obama and clapper and Brennan for FISA abuse and spying and the first attempted coup where the country spent millions on the fools errand Mueller report which only served to backfire badly back into the faces of some notable Dems and bureaucrats . Now we are seeing attempt two? no three? no its attempt no 4 or 5 or 6……it will fail too because it has no substance otherwise the dems would not have to secretly move the decks chairs without bi partisan inclusion -. Dems are scared because their failed ideology is showing to everyone. President Trump will easily win reelection and then you will really be hysterical –

  3. The russians are coming, and they have invaded Washington DC already with trump as president. If Paul Revere were alive today, his signals would be “One if by land, two if by sea, 3 if theyre coming from Washington DC”

  4. Yeah, no. Only if Mother says he can.

    • Mickey will have TO GO DOWN ON HIS KNEES and pray, but it could be dangerous
      if trumpf is right behind him, but we canalways ask Mother if it is neccessary to pray

      Nobody cares what your mother thinks. LMAO!!!

    • Liberalovsky Fredo Moscowitch Dude, it’s what Pence calls his wife.

      @Dawn Adriana – Abraham Lincoln called Mary “Mother” (or Molly)
      – Calvin Coolidge referred to wife Grace as “Mamma.”
      – Gerald Ford referred to Betty as “Mother”
      – Ronald Reagan called Nancy “Mommy.”

      You people think going after a good person makes you look cool. Karma will come for you. Pence is old fashioned and a decent human being and you making fun of him will not change that. Even Trump deserves some mocking but this is going too far.

    Whooops.

  6. Mike Pence’s brother, Ed Pence, worked for a company that made engines for the RUSSIAN MILITARY.

    Ed Pence and Paul Manafort worked together on other Russian and Ukrainian deals.

    Manafort pushed for Mike Pence to be the Vice President.

    Why did Manafort want Mike Pence to be the Vice President?

  7. trump pence mulvaney pompeo barr giulliani nunez sondland etc. Lots involved in this plot and conspiracy. Then the lies and cover up.

      Fox news😂

    • I still bet that it gets slapped down in the Senate and it goes on the shelf with Russian collusion. Democrats will of course cry obstruction well into Trumps second term

    • Nancy Schiff Biden Romney and Kerry all have son’s tie to China and Ukraine I think I would lie and cheat to stay out of jail too. It’s all going to come out with Durham report.

  8. Just because tRump instructed Pence to violate the constitution does not make it ok for V.P to do it. Pence took an oath to protect the constitution.

  9. excellent info, ty everyone.

  10. Was Mike Pence in the loop on this extortion attempt? Is he liable to be impeached as well? Inquiring minds want to know!

    • Yes, he was and is dead in the middle of this nightmare! He says he doesn’t know anything, trump has told over 13,000 lies and counting. Pence is catching up with him! He knows everything their both russian agents & want to change America into russia 2.0 and we must fight for our country!

    • No, because Republicans have the Senate. Impeachment possible but removal not a chance

    • Frances Petties | December 7, 2019 at 9:12 AM | Reply

      The solution to the problem I say, that video of Lindsey Graham during the Clinton Impeachment should be played all across the country by all reputable news outlets, so you can see the double standard. People thought what Nixon did was bad, but his own party finally decided to go against him. Even Nixon said the country had the right to know if “their President was a crook”. Just like now we have the right to know if Trump is a criminal that’s acting on behalf of Putin!!!

    • Stay tuned for the next exciting exiting episode

    Someone recently described Pence as,”oleaginous”, a perfect description.

    Trumpists have gone bananas and are now slipping and falling on their own peels.

  13. Donald Trump is like a corrupt form of the letter “pi”.

    Try rambling up the entire extent of his criminal existence and you’ll be in court forever…

  14. “Look, Mr. Zelensky, we’re not interested in an ACTUAL investigation. That might raise all sorts of unwanted questions. We just need you to SAY you’re going to investigate. People won’t remember after a week or two.”

  15. —-> Reportedly, the testimony of Ms. Williams is NOT classified but improperly classified. Under Executive Order and 13526 and the ruling of U.S. v Nixon, I don’t think Trump or Pence can lawfully keep the information classified. Pence needs to de-classify it or be subject to impeachment for Obstruction of Justice and Conspiracy in the Bribery.
    ….Executive Order 13526 states that, “In no case shall information be classified, continue to be maintained as classified, or fail to be declassified” for the purpose of concealing any violations of law or preventing embarrassment of any person or entity.”

    —–> Consideration of Article II duties does not mean a president can’t be indicted.
    U.S. v Nixon 418 U.S. 683 (1974) Page 418 U. S. 715
    …”25 F.Cas. at 192A President is NOT IN ANY SENSE ABOVE THE LAW” regardless of Article II duties.

    The cross-petition in No. 73-1824 for certiorari, of whether the Grand Jury acted within it’s authority to name the President as an unindicted co-conspirator, was ruled unnecessary, improvidently granted and deferred pending oral argument of the case and then denied.
    … Evidently, the case was never brought to bear and the designation of “unindicted co-conspirator was allowed to stand.

    This kind of judgment is NOT free license for an OLC opinion that a sitting president can’t be indicted. And, the ruling of “NOT in any sense above the law” at 25 F.Cas. at 192 on Page 418 U. S. 715 would indicate that a president CAN be indicted.

    define: improvidently: A judgment, decree, rule, Injunction, etc., when given or rendered without adequate consideration by the court, or without proper information as to all the circumstances affecting it, or based upon a mistaken assumption or misleading information or advice, is sometimes said to have been “improvidently” given or issued.
    .

  16. At his wedding somebody threw a hand full of rice at him and knocked him out

  17. Pense deserves jail time too! Don’t forget he LIED about Flynn!!!

  18. Pence keeps low profile to realize his dream to replace Trump soon. Deep in his mind he applauded the impeachment process. The quicker the better

    How embarrassing it must be to have someone in the room listening and watching every move you make and not being able to recognize them. Oh and if she is just a nobody then release her testimony.

  20. Gosh, Pence obstructing the investigation too. What could such a good Christian have to hide?
