    Congress! Do your job. Start the impeachment proceedings.

    Richard ‘I’m no crook’ Nixon resigned only after the impeachemnt proceedings started.

    • Music Lifee except impeachment won’t make him go away, unfortunately. But it’s the right thing to do

      Tried and failed so many times, then all the other allegations, just makes the left look very bad. Hence, the left helping Trump stay on top. Centralists can only vote for Trump or far left extremists, so Trump is the only choice. Clintons bad name has helped Trump too.

      April Jones-Foston yes they will, they will loose impeachment, sentate controlled firmly by republicans and then after that it’s shown to be a clear boost for trumps 2020 campaign. I’m a moderate

      Windsor & Epstein Babysitting Services The Clinton name may have helped Captain Carrot in the past, but she’s not running now, remember? So, the “but Hilary’s e-mails” is passé. It’s now “but Ivankas e-mails”; or have you conveniently overlooked the hypocrisy?

  5. I’ve been calling out Trump’s corruption with his golf trips since they started. Trump can NOT own a property, go golfing on it and make the secret service pay (with taxpayer dollars) for their golf carts, lodgings, food and anything else when that money goes to the OWNER of the property who is Trump!
    His base and Trump LOVE to make a big deal about him donating his measly paycheck which is $400,000.
    “According to Title 3 of the US code, a president earns a $400,000 salary and is still on government payroll after leaving office. The president is also granted a$50,000 annual expense account, $100,000 nontaxable travel account, and $19,000 for entertainment” Yet Trump has spent over $100,000,000 on golf so far and foreign countries and businesses have spent millions staying at his properties and golfing.
    Corruption and violations in plain sight and the GOP and Pelosi and Schumer don’t give a flying fvck.

      I’ve been saying the exact same thing for years. 🙉🙉🙉tRUMP supports 🙈🙈🙈

      Ain’t Trump lucky. Trump would definitely gets reelected. Another 4 years to watch leftist have another ‘sad day in america’.

    • I wonder where trump’s salary as “president” goes to. He CLAIMS he is donating it, but when have we heard last where the money went to? Where did his last salary go to? I must have missed that. But when trump SAYS he is donating, then he sure is, right? Since he is so credible and also known for his generosity. Instead of paying private bills out of a endowment fund, that’s something he’d never do. Right? #ironyofcourse #BillionDollarLoser

      There is no proof he donates his whole paycheck.

  6. There was absolutely nothing new in the testimony. Why didn’t they do all of this months ago? So much time wasted.

    • Derek Mitchell | July 27, 2019 at 2:47 AM | Reply

      Because nobody wants Pence to be president and the Senate could just turn down everything anyway. Also a bunch of Trump’s aides got indicted and they recovered tons of money. Don’t want to rush these things.

    • April Jones-Foston | July 27, 2019 at 5:28 AM | Reply

      It was still worthwhile to hear mr MUELLER. There was some very DAMAGING information regarding rump’s interaction with Russia & his possible indictment “After leaving office” !!

      Derek Mitchell that’s what I have said for like this entire impeachment thing, they shouldn’t even be doing the impeachment, it’s not like this changed anything in the eyes of republicans in the sentate. It’s like giving him the re-election in 2020, which is kinda sad, but it’s like who’s better lmao,

    *When Trump supporters still don’t realize they’ve been played by Putin*

    Does this not frustrate anyone else

    Congress is seeking information that has been withheld from them via obstruction

    It seems to me, that Special Counsel Mueller was at his most animated when it was suggested that his selection of his staff was politically motivated. His emphasis in that process hinged on integrity and capability, not political bias. Mr. Trump (I cannot write President) has continually referred to “angry Democrats” as though they were a separate species of Americans. He, in fact, removed the biased characters as quickly as their identity became known. It was perhaps his most forceful rebuke of some of the near slanderous allegations leveled at him by certain |Republicans on the committee. Would that I were able to call |Robert Mueller my friend and mentor.

    A Russian agent, a senile old man, and a criminal walk into a bar…
    The bartender asks, “What can I get you Mr. President?”

    • And we know who the Barr-Tender is.

      Miss Mince-ski, let’s not take it of such a law to degree.

      I might bar it.
      Trump would then have to car it from the carpet.
      Did you catch his tie when he was on the carpet?

      Ummmm, about that.
      About that.
      I said bar and law for a reason.

  11. The sooner Trump leaves office, the sooner he goes to prison.

    VOTE!

    Does it really have to be this hard to oust a cockroach?

    • The Republicans invited Agent Orange (yes, that Agent Orange) for an American purging. What the opposition needs is a throughout overhaul, not just some Raid.

  13. Knock knock.
    Who’s there?
    Oranges.
    Oranges who?
    The oranges of the impeachment investigation.

    Why is Mueller being compared to an actor? WTF? Have everyone’s brains been so conditioned to be “entertained” that they can’t recognize a sane, stable, firm personality?

    Supreme court judge retired so Trump could appoint his choice replacement and coincidence his son got a high power job under Trump. Trump personifies CORRUPTION

  16. Remove the orange dictator!

    The only thing proved so far is that the incestuous lunatic has shown us all,and he absolutely has proven ,that our justice system is just a total joke, and it has been abetted by the gutless republicans and democrats both.

  18. Meanwhile, Manuchin is probably drawing Trump’s face on a silver certificate.

    Trump supporters dont realize he’s a lying con man. Amazing!

  20. I tend to trust Nancy’s judgment but do not see any reason to delay impeachment much longer.
