    • Ryan stand corrected, it’s called spell check. My friend.

    • @Jennifer Braud In the alternative Trump world, Adam would be guilty of not being a Russian asset. That is how corrupt the Trump world and his cult of followers are.

    • Ukraine can get him out of office, then his tax returns can get him in prison.

  3. B.. Should include the use of taxpayers’ dollars.

    • you mean like the Mueller report, two years, 25 million and dems got nothing…that should be a crime!
      There will be no impeachment, just a re-election.

    • @Sea Hawks dont lie. The Muller report not only found evidence of obstruction but made money from the indictments they handed down which allowed them to seize more money than the investigation cost

    • @Sea Hawks
      Wrong-Russian Interference In our Elections! SEVERAL corupt individuals, many very close to trump in prison! And many others issues brought out of the dark.
      Maybe, you need to read several sources instead of listening to one-sided opinions.

  4. the approval rating for impeachment will continue to rise…
    it is close now to the point Richard Nixon knew it was time to bow out…
    Cadet Spanky McBonespurs doesn’t have that kind of class…

      You do know that.. out side of the U.S his approval rating is sky high.. the whole world was breathing easier when Hillary lost.. that inside the U.S his approval rating with black Americans is higher than any democrat rating for probably the last 40 years.. higher than Obama’s approval rating.

      @Jonathan Ardoin Biden did not personally withhold anything from Ukraine. It was US government policy because of the internationally recognized corruption of the Ukrainian prosecutor. You’re ‘facts’ are a house of cards.

  6. I love the ABC impeachment inquiry traitor trumpanzee..

  7. Ha ha I love it, they asked for it now they’re get it and then some

  8. Abuser, Betrayer, Corrupter. That is tame compared to what most folks think😕

    • @Gabe Dudley “Week”…The spelling of “weak” by the weakest minded…

    • Gabe Dudley Yep and you have a Tremendously weak mind

    • @Sheila Mesa and you fell for it. So easy. Hows that ego? Feel better my grammer nazi friend? You need to feel smart dont you? Cant you see what your mind has become? It has become like trumps. School bully comnents? Check Narcissistic. tendencies? Check

    • @Gabe Dudley people think they look good insulting others. In a sick way it makes them feel good about themselves. I see this on here all the time. Just ignore them because they are not worth your time.

      @Gabe Dudley You have learnt well from your God Emperor. make a mistake pretend it was intentional and that you are genius meanwhile you are just proving your a fool and the griffters line up to take advantage of you whilst smiling into your moronic face.

  9. 65% say WH must comply with subpoenas – there’s your first two articles of impeachment right there. That’s obstruction of justice and abuse of power.

    • @Dan Forster lol civil war…I hope they’re up on their history, the last one didn’t work out well for them. Not to mention their AR 15’s will be no match for an F15/16/22, M1 tanks etc.

    • @Dan Forster Pfffftttttt hahahahah lol

      Nah. Drones will take them out like gnats at a flame thrower exhibit.

    • @john brown Your point expanded: Why do gun lovers believe 18th century tactics will win a 21st century war? A new civil war will include destruction of all communication networks, so much for calling out the militia. Weapons like you describe, how good a marksman does it take to shoot down a tiny drone traveling at 150 mph that doesn’t need to defend itself? Not a lot of those folks around, and they’ll only get one chance. Electronic control of everything will be used to track you, or, simply make you disappear. No money, no one will ‘officially’ know you ever existed. That safe cabin in the woods? You don’t own it, and there is no record you ever set foot on it before. Any new civil war will be really one sided. And also, what makes the Trumpers think the Donald would side with them anyway? There is probably more money to be had betraying his supporters than fighting with them to the bitter end.

    • Frank Blackcrow | October 31, 2019 at 8:59 AM | Reply

      Only subpoenas are being allowed are from the democrats and none allowed from the republicans to gain any form of testimonies.. none from the so called.. invisible whistle blower.. as what was allowed before in.. Clinton or Nixon.. that this time not allowed to have legal representation for Trump as being ruled.. guilty until proven innocent.. as is how the democrats want to rewrite the law to suit them, because of every time they do any thing.. they lose.. as is what their showing still, as with by passing procedure and law.

    • @Frank Blackcrow OK, let’s straighten this up. Per the rules Republican John Boeniers established in 2015, only the chairman of these committees can issue subpoenas. The committees will hear testimony from others, if it is relevant to the proceedings at hand. The ‘witnesses’ the Republicans have suggested don’t meet this threshold. This is the equivalent of a Grand Jury, operating under the rules the Republicans created when they were in power. Never is the person investigated allowed to witness the discovery procedure, or to challenge witnesses at this point in any investigative proceedings. 47 house Republicans are participating in these hearings, with the same right to interrogate witnesses as the Democrats. Did you ever consider the fact that the evidence, as presented, is so damning that the Republicans can’t come up with question to refute the facts being presented?

    At least Dump is happy that he has finally been able to participate in real “ethnic cleansing”. Nothing else has worked out for him as failed president, especially the border immigration fiasco he created just as he has now created the Kurdish nightmare. If his supporters, including the entire Repugnant party which has gotten its huge tax cuts, if they believe that those of us who think maybe their anti-worker and anti-civil rights moves will be acceptable, then they are WRONG. We will fight Dump and his ideology and we will prevail. No ordinary American should believe in these totally crazy and unacceptable policies by the failed president. In 1973 and 1974, I watched as Nixon’s assistants, one by one, went jail. Now I’ll be glad to watch this batch go too.

    • RightToConsent | October 30, 2019 at 11:07 PM | Reply

      Amen, but this time, I want to see their party implode, and their enablers suffer the consequences of their sick way of thinking. It’s time for our society and civilization to grow up and evolve.

    • Charlie Mcmullen | October 30, 2019 at 11:12 PM | Reply

      @RightToConsent I think they have been on such a dangerous road to have him in office. He was NOT who they wanted in 2016, Bush was, but he manipulated and wormed his way into their graces. Unlike Democrats the Repugnants never back down and since GinGrinch, Newt, they play such a dirty game that in some ways Dump is a lot like them. I think the Democrats will prevail because they are on the side of right, not the side of might.

    • Charlie Mcmullen | October 30, 2019 at 11:15 PM | Reply

      @Tessmage Tessera I totally agree. Nixon’s mess ruined a lot of people’s lives for years. Unlike Clinton whose Whitewater stuff was so falsified and some of his cronies like Susan McDougal had to pay a price, very few were indicted and the Whitewater charges were proven not very substantial. Dump has really made very bad choices all along and even now his people like Mulvaney and Pompeo and Fool-iani are just bullies and thugs. Rather than cooperate and get it behind them like Clinton, they want to try to bar fight their way. It will not work.

    • Tessmage Tessera | October 30, 2019 at 11:23 PM | Reply

      @Charlie Mcmullen Yup. Not only will it not work, but their course of action could very well lead to the total obliteration of the Republican party, within the next 12 years. I think McConnell is starting to realize this and if he’s smart, he’ll dump Trump in favor of preserving his party. To do otherwise will be to commit slow suicide.

    • @Charlie Mcmullen: My family lived in DC during Watergate because my father was covering it for a news agency. It was all we talked about, even in junior high.To quote Andy Borowitz, “I never thought I’d get to share the joy of impeachment with my children.”

  11. Rule 1: questions only no speeches. Rule 2: stay on topic. Consequence: immediate silence or removal from the site.

    • The Republicans will not be able to rant and rave like they usually do, so I wonder how they will use their time .

    • If only we could have a national vote on those rules, just to remind them who they’re working for. Ever thought about being a delegate to a second Constitutional Convention?

    Barr was unable to put his spin on Ukrain.

    • America got scammed by Barr and Trump into not believing a comprehensive report by Mueller. He outlined a Russian election interference campaign to benefit Trump who welcomed the help, then tried to obstruct the subsequent investigation into said Russian involvement. So, how did America get scammed? Billy-boy released that decorated summary of the Mueller report and Donny-boy ran around screaming “no collusion, no obstruction, total exoneration”. And I’m sitting here going “What the f#@k?

    • —> Barr, Giuliani, and the “three amigos”, Lev Parnas and Dmitry Firtash are trying. Reportedly, Lev Parnas is on the legal team of President Trump and Dmitry Firtash (wanted for extradition to the U.S. on bribery charges, an on-going investigation since the Bush Administration in 2006).
      .

    • @Helen G. Pitts Never trust a boastful person. They usually are lying like you.

    • What future (republican) presidents will learn from this is that you can do under the counter operations as long as they are indirect and hard enough for the people to undertand. You can agree to a plot by foreigners that benefit you, but you can’t order a plot as president that would benefit you.

  13. Imagine how fast the Watergate Hearings would have been over if Nixon and his staff admitted to the break-in and cover-up. And yes, while releasing written transcripts of the White House tapes.

The emoluments clause, also called the foreign emoluments clause, is a provision of the U.S. Constitution (Article I, Section 9, Paragraph 8) that generally prohibits federal officeholders from receiving any gift, payment, or other thing of value from a foreign state or its rulers, officers, or representatives.

    • @Richard Hammonds You spelled republicans wrong there, buddy. Oh, and maybe fix your keyboard, it’s stuck on screaming.

    • @CHIPMUNK RAPIDS MADMAN – That is not true. We know what the president says out of his own criminal mouth. We know what stonewalling obstruction implies about someone’s guilt (even the orange criminal Drumpf has said as much concerning others)
      As for other forms of information, even if we are merely being “spoon fed”, we can determine fact based on what is being said by opposing sides. For instance, if republicans claim that nothing happened – then say something happened BUT there was no quid pro quo – then say there was a quid pro quo but there was nothing wrong with it – We can infer who is telling the truth by how much one’s story, and moral stance, changes to fit the moment.
      YOU ARE FAKE NEWS

  17. Dragging Lt. Col. Vindman’s name through the mud with no shame, this President has shown time and time again of his disdain for members of the military and the honor that they have for serving. Draft dodger bone spurs Trump thinks he should have more honor coming his way by being the head of all of the military in this country. Yes, he is Commander in Chief but has proven he has no honor save from serving under Putin.

  18. Corruption YES!, the whole family. It’s a crime family that, by a fluke got elected to the highest office
    after which he betrays while plundering this country.

      The buck will stop there, cuz it sure in the heck won’t go any further than that. THE Senate won’t allow it. THEY will not unseat the 45th president of the United States of America. The BUCK STOPS AT THE SENATE. THEREFORE Pelosi will not be able to usurp the power of the PRESIDENCY. THAT’S WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT.

      THEY DON’T HAVE POWER SO THEY WILL TRY WHAT THEY CAN TO steel it take it whatever or do you want to use. It Ain’t Gunna happen.

      Trump will prevail in 2020!
