    There wont be any history after the fascist take over.

    The worst damage Trump has done is reduce the accountability of the Government and thus the trust that the AmericAn people have on their political system. It will take a long time for that to rebound.

  3. House prosecutors did what they could in an unjust universe. I appreciate their effort. Now it’s up to us to eradicate this cancer from the white house.

  4. Russia, must be paying Trump, and the GOP Trillions of dollars to destroy America and democracy.

    • Russia doesn’t have trillions of dollars to give anyone. All it takes is a few thousands to get Republicans to sell their souls – think about the Russian lady who donated a few thousands to the NRA and completely infiltrated them, or even the Parnas guy who gave just a few thousands and completely ingratiated himself with Trump and a lot other Republicans.

      Greed doesn’t need a lot coaxing; sometimes, just the promise of something that may never even happen can unleash the most quite surprising actions from the greedy.

      Not trillions. They sell cheaper.

      @Kathleen Mitchell The people who raised red flags for shady Russian transactions at this bank were silenced or fired and Trump is currently blocking the bank records that are under subpoena same with his accounting firm same with his taxes. This is a dirty dirty boy.

    • Kathleen Mitchell | January 24, 2020 at 10:15 PM | Reply

      @Michael Dollar Yeah, that makes sense. That’s why no one will ever see those records. tRumputin is the shadiest conman we have ever seen and the whole Rethugliklan party protects him.

  5. The GOP doesn’t care about their reputations. Money, that’s all they care about.

    The Republicans are the ones on trial.

  7. This lot of GOP dont give a F–k about History, they worry about their Bank Accounts and how much money they could make by fair or foul means.

  8. The GOP have made their choice. They have chosen ”party before constitution.”
    even after the trump is gone, the trumpanzies will remain… the trump is the litmus, that allows us to see our enemies clearly
    any, not against the trump are enemy, there is no gray, no other side of the coin, they are traitors, to this nation, to our constitution, to all peoples of this earth… never forget who they are, never forgive their sins against all mankind… *VOTE*

    • You hear someone say evil doers beware its them. Follow the skim, where it leads, therein is your answer. In memory of j.f.k.

    • A

    • EXACTLy. THE antisocial element that clings to Trump like fleas on a dog, is ALWAYS with us. They are out in the open right now. It would be SO AWESOME if we could round em all up, and BRAND them with a BIG T right on their foreheads, so we forever know their shame. TRAITORS that are more concerned about OWNING THE LIBS, even if it means harming their own, which it DOES. These guys get off on seeing America in a compromised state, they are DOMESTIC ENEMIES.

    • YOU are a sad Trumpanzee, Goldman, AND IT SHOWS. Bullies that think Trump is AWESOME cant STAND that the OBVIOUS is out there for ALL the other schoolkidz to see. You gotta see it, but – mean asshat desperate to attack the other kids, cuz it makes you feel big and strong. But just like all other bullies that think they got everything under control, the kidz are ganging up to wedgie your big bullies out of the school yard, with underwear up over their headz, and you toadies bawling and running behind em all the way home to daddy putin.

    • Anyone still supporting this criminal President is a traitor to The Constitution.

  9. Daniel McArthur | January 24, 2020 at 3:30 AM | Reply

    The Republican party wants a cover up they do not want to uphold the 📜Constitution📜 and provide witnesses and documents📑⁉️

  10. The rule of law only applies to the plebs now, not the rich white nationalists. It’s now a government of the rich, by the rich, and for the rich.

    • Alex Hamilton what, how is this relevant.

    • @Augie Rockero Your opposition knows that doesnt mean Communism. Our problem is national healthcare is good for the American people and not Republicans that hold stock in insurance Company profits. This is why the GOP Conservatives hate healthcare for all Americans. Remember Money is their GOD, therefore they have no morality or sympathy.

    • History will ring true if the ultra-capitolist greedy corporate treasonous racist are put down and the people are put first, and only if the people are put first.

    • I don’t get it. Did people think that when trump said he would cut taxes that it meant ours. YES Bernie will go after taxes, but only from the RICH!

    • @James Carter It’s not personal. It’s just BUSINESS.

  11. The history books will now say that American allies can’t depend on them any more because they are letting the person in charge dictate what they can and can’t do. The Republican Party are anothing but a bunch of patheitic loser who don’t want the truth to come out because they are to gutless to suffer the consequences for what they are hidng. McConnell, graham, Jordan, meadows and all the other morons that can’t see that he did something wrong ofr are they to gutless to stand up and make him accountable for his crimes. Are Americans willing to allow there country to be run by a corrupt republicans and the biggest liar of all time. About time these morons got kicked out because you are heading towards another riggged election if the liar in charge is allowed to go without suffer for what he did. Are the republicans that scared of the person in charge or are they just plain deaf dumb and stupid.

  12. The entire world is laughing at the US and it’s ‘President’.

    • @Dani Londen Sorry ….

      As a “european”, your opinion matters none, to what happens in “Numero Uno”…

      Sorry you thought you mattered….

      But you don’t……😁

    • @jer see the above post….👆

    • Valerie Dowling | January 24, 2020 at 1:22 PM | Reply

      We’re not laughing … certainly not in Ireland. We think it’s soul destroying that Trump is still in power. He is the most corrupt vile POTUS of our lifetime. Absolutely shocking that his base appear to believe every hateful thing he says. It doesn’t say much for half of Americans ☹️

    • @Valerie Dowling some “international dweebs” just don’t get it…..

      See “the brit”, above….👆

    • WHY? Just because he believes the US invented the WHEEL!

    Republicans keep feeding the monster, hoping they’ll be the last ones he’ll eat.
    The analogy with Hitler’s landgrabbing from 1939 on is remarkable. Like Hitler, Trump gets emboldened when nobody stops him from wrongdoing.
    America watch out! You got yourselves a
    serious problem if you don’t stop this.

  14. Every politicians that made millions while in Washington should be investigated.

      During the 2007 Congressional investigation of the dismissal of eight U.S. attorneys, it was discovered that administration officials had been using a private Internet domain, called, owned by and hosted on an email server run by the Republican National Committee,[1] for various official communications. The domain name is an abbreviation for “George W. Bush, 43rd” President of the United States. The use of this email domain became public when it was discovered that J. Scott Jennings, the White House’s deputy director of political affairs, was using a email address to discuss the firing of the U.S. attorney for Arkansas.[2] Communications by federal employees were also found on (registered to “Bush-Cheney ’04, Inc.”[3]) and (registered to “Republican National Committee”[4]). Congressional requests for administration documents while investigating the dismissals of the U.S. attorneys required the Bush administration to reveal that not all internal White House emails were available. Conducting governmental business in this manner is a possible violation of the Presidential Records Act of 1978.[5] Over 5 million emails may have been lost.[6][7] Greg Palast claims to have come up with 500 of the Karl Rove emails, leading to damaging allegations.[8] In 2009, it was announced that as many as 22 million emails may have been lost.[citation needed]

      The Republican National Committee has for months been quietly paying expenses previously covered by the Trump campaign in an arrangement that experts say is bizarre, but legal.

      The payments include more than $37,000 a month in rent to President Donald Trump’s company, and thousands more in salary to Vice President Mike Pence’s nephew, John Pence.

      The payments started abruptly last September, when the RNC came under pressure to stop paying Trump’s personal legal bills in the special counsel’s Russia investigation.

      Soon after the Republican National Committee came under pressure for paying legal bills for President Donald Trump and his eldest son in the special counsel’s Russia probe, it started covering expenses for the president’s re-election campaign.

      The RNC is using campaign funds to pay Trump’s company more than $37,000 a month in rent, and to pay thousands of dollars in monthly salary to Vice President Mike Pence ‘s nephew, John Pence, party officials confirmed this week. The rent pays for office space in the Trump Tower in New York for the staff of Trump’s re-election campaign. John Pence is the Trump campaign’s deputy executive director.

      The banker, Alexsandr Torshin, has close ties to Vladimir Putin, and the sort of shady connections one expects from an oligarch in the Putin circle. (He has been charged with money laundering overseas and links to mobsters.) Torshin is also a lifetime member of the NRA, hosted NRA delegations visiting Russia, has attended several NRA conventions, and has spoken with gun enthusiast Donald Trump Jr.

      Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates will donate a combined $100 million to a World Bank fund for women entrepreneurs that was the brainchild of Ivanka Trump.

      Notice the RNC and their loyalty to other countries and money not America not American citizens

    The GOP is rotten to the core, so don’t expect any of their senators to do the right thing. Not even that hypocrite Susan Collins.

  16. Trump and his enablers will be remembered like Hitler and Stalin and their enablers.

    • @Sam Dill
      Why don’t you enlighten us??? 😁😁😁

      Not if he is stopped now.It will be a shineing example that our system does work.

    • @Boathousejoe D
      The US system of government is seriously deficient. If this ends well, it will be thanks to brave people, not thanks to the system. Both US democracy and the US legal system are classified as “flawed” by international standards.

    • Jim Battersbee | January 24, 2020 at 4:31 PM | Reply

      Yep, and guess how all the tens of millions of American people who elected them will be remembered. Mind you, as always, fascist America will simply re-write the history as they always have done.
      I just listened to Schumer talk about how America was “founded on truth”. No mention of the land theft and genocide that it was actually founded on.
      America is a fantasyland.

    As a Conservative, at this moment, don’t want to be called “Republican”.

    • Isn’t that a shame. When we get to the other side of this, conservatives are going to need to redefine themselves so they won’t be equated with this awful mess. These people currently in the GOP aren’t Republicans in any sense of the word.

    • Bless you. Most of us feel like being called American is disgusting.
