  1. Trump is corrupt. Anyone who doesn’t see this is blind. They choose to be blind or are blind due to stupidity.

    • I find most supporters of our bone spur president simply do not know all the corrupt behavior and lies told by their leader, and don’t want to know. They simply want to blindly support and take all their cues from their tax and draft evading hero.

    • A M The clock is ticking, the DoJ is closing in on crooked Dems and getting arrested left and right. So don’t believe every hiccup the fake media describes as loyal, who are truly spies. Traitors, communists. Omg your blind.

    • They are disgustingly corrupt, its pass down behavior, tb. They have always been murdering thieves, that’s how they get rich, pigs, they are garbage thugs with a tie, dirt bombs, because this is not their land, they know they belong in Europe, his a neo nazi dictator want to be, they need to do a Mussolini on him!!!!

    • @ihave35cents Wouldn’t take so long if Republicans weren’t obstructing and stonewalling. You’re blame is misdirected.

  2. Actually, Lt. Col. Vindman, your ‘speaking out’ *IS* the *very essence* of ‘patriotism’…something #45 will *never* understand. 🇺🇸

    • Lol yea the guy we just found out about that was born in the ussr might even be a Republican you never know I mean he was born in communist country he has to be a bigger patriot then people born in California who served

    • @CynAnne1 so why don’t you guys stop crying and just win next year

    • @Ronald yea I knew him when he was a baby in the Soviet Union he’s a good dude I mean msnbc just told us

  3. Next Trump will be saying that true patriots are the enemy of the people.
    #veteransforimpeachmeant
    Semper Fi….

  4. Trump has been a national security danger since he was elected. He is a rolling crisis.

    • @heaven knight I dont think it was just Republicans. I believe voters were Dems and Independents too. They voted anyone but Hillary. If Dems want a President they need a candidate or it will be the same in 2020, unless the House and Senate gets a spine and throws him out of office.

    • And he is a huge liability after his removal. He was privy to all the national secrets. As long as he lives he will be a DANGEROUS person.

      @Unintended Consequences He was right. A lot of Congressmen are Israeli hookers. They are not to be trusted.

    • Maxime De Winter | October 29, 2019 at 11:53 AM | Reply

      @Antony Stringfellow The Biggest threats are Israel and China. Trump takes on China contrary to to the Wimpocrats.

      @jordan matthei Trump knows better than those dumb generals that have us bogged down for 20 years in the stupid Middle East wars. And he is clear sighted enough to take on Etnocentric Totalitarian China.

  5. True patriots stand up for “all”, country and people alike.

    A sycophant only stand up for “one”.

    Patriots need to gatjer and uphold the american values in these dark times of the “twitter-tyrant”…

  6. One after another credible people are coming forward to validate the original whistleblower complaint. How many of these people can the trump white house discredit? Trump’s house of cards is about to fall on his head.

  7. Meanwhile on fox “news”, Hannity is sharing his favorite pumpkin-carving techniques..

  8. (M) My
    (A) Administration
    (G) Got
    (A) Arrested

  9. 45 is a TRAITOR!!!

    • America at its finest!!! Definitely NOT the leader of the free world!!! 45% of Americans thinks the sun shines through the Dear Leader.’s a$$ Trump’s America has turned its back on its Allies in Ukraine and the Kurds in Syria. I am worried that our Canadian military who are fighting with the USA in Afghanistan and where our equivalent to your CIA are carrying out missions many countries with you, that Americans would not stand shoulder to shoulder with us and turn their backs and leave us hanging in the field of battle. We have stood with America for decades shoulder to shoulder. Now America is willing to sacrifice its Allies citizens as they make irrational decisions. What happens when the Dear Leader Trumps says shoot the Allies in the back?

    • James Timlin : If this doesn’t rise to the level of Impeachment, NOTHING does, and the Republic is over. Remember that, America . . . This is a PERMANENT deal, whatever happens. Trump OR the Republic will remain. NOT both

    • James Timlin : Not true. They all have different reasons for not wanting Trump removed. Mostly greed and racism, but other reasons too; ignorance and warped, “loyalty,” for example. But, don’t kid yourself that ANYONE in America, “believes,” ANYTHING that comes out of the Orange Orifice. The Propaganda outlets keep the Trump base, by convincing them to HATE their fellow Americans MORE than America’s ENEMIES

    • Mel Hawkins shoot it.

    • TRE45ONOUS!

    The opening statement by this Colonel should touch the heart of every patriotic American. Those who have had to work hard to be citizens of the US value their citizenship and are proud to serve the US with honor and integrity.

    This guy is defitely a patriot. This people who do not testify are not. They need to stand up for our country not our crazy president.

  12. *”No quid pro quo”* says the Mobster who got caught extorting another country for dirt on a political opponent.

    Ironically, Biden is likely to not even be the candidate he faces.

    • @Andrew Mastin ANY>

    • Nevyn of OZ 1973 | October 29, 2019 at 7:47 AM | Reply

      What the democrats should be doing is keep Trump’s focus on biden and then biden turn around and show a video of a grandkid begging Joe to quit because they are scared their daddy and mummy are going to get killed. Best done after a tweet attack.

    • David Rogers maybe but at the time Biden was the one he really feared could defeat him. I’m outside the US, but I hope that he gets impeached but not removed from office, but then loses in November 2020 in a landslide, just to humiliate him.

    • @Yvonne McLay our nation is at risk. we cannot afford to let him stay another year.

    • Biden may not be the candidate he faces but Biden is proving to be his undoing. trump is basically jumping the gun to his own impeachment. trump’s lack of strategy has kept him from waiting to see who the actual candidate will be then work on that person. trump probably out here doing more scheming with Russians and extorting Ukrane for possibly no reason.

  13. Honorable and a patriot, unlike president bonespurs.

    • @Andy Clark This Army officer has a jump school badge , Infantry school .campaign badges , Trump has bone spurs .

    Their has been a plethora of folks corroborating the Whistleblowers, Trump should be impeached, this is clearly misconduct and abuse of power. He has at least three articles of impeachment that is evident.

    • Linda Sandoval | October 29, 2019 at 10:42 AM | Reply

      Yup more even

    • Yes. The Constitution states: The President of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, BRIBERY, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. BRIBERY is the act of persuading someone to do you a favor, typically illegally or dishonestly, by a gift of money or other inducement. Ex.: trump has admitted to freezing Ukraine’s $391 million U.S. military aid until President Zelensky agreed to do trump the favor of publicly announcing REOPENING Ukraine’s investigation of the Bidens (obviously intending to politically damage former Vice President Joe Biden, as the initial investigation concluded no wrong doing by the Bidens), thereby benefitting trump’s 2020 re-election campaign. Obviously BRIBERY.

  15. Look at all the trouble that Trump’s pathetic self-serving crap has brought to so many good people. He is just the WORST!!! Thank god for the good hearted, moral, true patriots who step forward!!! 💪🏻

  16. These patriots might just manage to save America from the Russian sleeper agents aka Trump and his supporters.

  17. How much more is needed to impeach this monstrosity that endangers us all?!

    I do not want a world that has Trump as President of the United States. I did not work long and hard in this country to have this criminal affecting my children and grandchildren.

    Whistle-blowers versus the orange “skin flute”swallower.

  19. This Russian born US Army Officer is more of an American then this American born President.

      No doubt….

    • @quietman356 123455
      Even if he’s an Obama holdover hack, he served the country with a sense of duty, honor, integrity & courage unlike the current WH occupant.
      Btw one doesn’t make it to the rank of LTC as an infantry officer by being a hack.

    • @kulhuk 7 Why try to explain anything to people unwilling to hear facts! Stop wasting your energies…somewhere out there’s a tree producing oxygen for that person they need apologize to that tree 🌳😒😶???

    • Tired of Fools | October 29, 2019 at 10:50 AM | Reply

      @Xcaliber 722 Good point on the person he was responding to..however, other people reading the comments section that don’t respond could also benefit from kulhuk 7’s comments, so that’s why its still a good idea for him to make his case.

      @quietman356 123455 hmm, no content, no playlists, hidden name,
