      @Adam Curtis Kraushaar wasn’t one of the reasons Mueller couldn’t come to a definite conclusion on Russian collusion, the fact he was unable to get some of the witnesses to cooperate because the president interfered with witnesses coming in for questioning?……👀

    I love that Donald Trump Jr has a book coming out called Triggered while his dad is doing everything he can not to get caught, it’ll be so hilarious and rewarding after all of this.

      @John Roberts The Ukrainian president has said from day one that there was no pressure or blackmail or extortion of any kind during that conversation. And that has been public knowledge.

    • @Beautiful Perception and he later changed that and said there was pressure. That is public knowledge.

    • Beautiful Perception | November 15, 2019 at 9:22 PM | Reply

      @John Roberts Well, how funny, I looked it up and nothing came up in search stating that. Everything said that he stated that there was no pressure. And as of just a day ago on the news it was still stated that the Ukrainian president still maintained there was no pressure, blackmail, or anything out of line during the call – including no threats made.

    • Sadly the book is doing well, of course the Trump campaign is buying them in bulk so it can make New York Times best sellers list. I wouldn’t buy or read that garbage if you gave it to me free. Trump Jr. Is such a spineless little b….just like his daddy. I’ve never dispised a whole family until now. They are like an infectious disease on America. God save us all.

      I wonder if a satanist would lie? I don’t know what do you think please be honest.

  3. Micks loyalty should be to country not just too appease traitor Trump!!

    • @True Tech – have your doctor up your meds, they are not working.

    • @Tomandtob Gee, you sound like you have something called #StockholmSyndrome and you can click that hashtag to study about it, if and when you are ready to.
      You want to keep pretending that violent acts result in producing afterlives, then you are delusional, and that comment you wrote points to all signs of you being a projectionist.

      At age 7, i began experiencing some very painful physical abuse, from a violently themed older brother. at 13, 5 cops clubbed and kicked me, and that really hurt, and they really got away with it.
      At age 17, the older brother who repeatedly punched me in the face while whispering to shut up in between each punch at age 7 in my bedroom he walked into and closed the door to hide the violent stuff from our parents, well, he broke my nose after repeatedly punching me in the face without provocation in our parents kitchen as the slept one night.
      At age 22, an employer only gave me a dust mask instead of a proper breathing apparatus to work with DOW Firestop D2000, so I’ve been shaking for more than half my lifespan ever since then, with painful stiffness, and that DOW chemical was reported as causing cancer in lab mice.

      You probably want to pretend that the death threats i get from religious narcissists would result in me going to a Disneyland in the sky if they murdered me eventually because i stand up against the church mafia very carefully now from a somewhat safe enough distance, since I’ve been isolating myself for since 2007 in a rural field fixer upper after moving away from my violent older brother back in Toronto, and that is because you seem to not really care about the difference between right or wrong, right?

      I’m copying and saving this to add to the large volume of examples i have of people such as your medically untreated self, as its helpful to show other people at a public speaking event on a large screen as i stand at a podium talking about it all.

      All the best to you, including all those around you too.

      The #DigitalLifeguardProject -_-

    • Republicans dont know how to do that. That would require some intellectual thought and reason.

  4. Dear Mick,
    If you are so sure t’rump did nothing wrong and can make that case to the public, wouldn’t giving testimony be exactly what you’d want to do?
    Unless of course….🤔😄😆😅


    • We knew this day would come!

      The SMART RATS get off of the burning ship. Trump is so stupid and reckless, he dont know when to stop. Its so bad, hes dug his hole so deep, that he probably cant stop, and all those riding with him will also drown. Trump will make sure of it. He hangs on to everyone around him to dirty up their hand. He is not going down alone.

  6. How shocking, a republican/ conservative that is 2 faced and stabs in the back. Wait a minute, that’s just natural for those who have that good ol boy conservative republican mentality. False alarm, I’m not shocked at all.

  7. GOP members you took an oath to uphold the Constitution. Do your job. Read the Constitution and get a dictionary so you know what bribery means.

    • You can count the number of current Republicans in Congress who have upheld their oath on the fingers of Captain Hook’s right hand. For them, as for the pretender, Trump, shoving their right hand in the air and committing to their oath was no more than a minor inconvenience to them. Just look at the number who have used their office for their own personal gain (I could list them all, but shouldn’t have to), and look at how many prioritise their subservience to their Dear Leader over their sworn oath to the USA.

      Moreover, with the help of their MAGA hat-wearing useful idiots (to the latters’ own detriment, as well as the rest of the country), in their $1Tn+ tax scam, they will go down in history as the most successful thieves in the history of mankind. And they pulled it off in broad daylight too!

      Michael K, CPA every time I see one of you trump supporters comment on Facebook I check to see if you have any content or followers. I find it interesting that none of you seem to have anything under your profile. Almost like you all have fake accounts.

    • If every one of them doesnt know what it means not one of them should be serving.

    • @BJ Smith So true and well stated!!

  8. The only good thing about putting a bunch of vile creatures under one roof is the inevitable fact that they will invariably cannibalize each other.

      David this is an inquiry. The House Majority sets the rules for the impeachment (elections have consequences). This is not a case in your typical court of law. Besides, everything the WB said has been corroborated by other witnesses. The identity of the WB is irrelevant. But don’t get your panties in a twist…Moscow Mitch will shut it all down when this goes to the Senate. SAD

      Good point. Sondland just murdered everybody in the White House. It’s like a Third World tinpot dictatorship right now.

  9. tRump has been bailed out by daddy his whole life. Now daddy’s gone he has to cheat to get what he wants. He doesn’t think he can win on his own merits. Anyone with a brain knows he has no merits!!!

  10. we are watching the political worms squirm when they are pinned to the facts.

    • @Beverly Botte are you kidding. The Republicans could not call any person to ask inquiring questions. Only the Democrats could call whitenesses.

    • @Beverly Botte Lol lol this is congressional theater only. It’s a joke and what I call Seinfeld humor!!! The hearings are all about nothing…. ..
      Now this is a political process not a criminal process. So everyone who states they want him in prison are uneducated ignorant people.

    • @KMK Salon Yes but they could not call anyone at the inquiry. The dems change the protocol 2 days before the inquire started. THE INQUIRE MEANS NOTHING. LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL
      Now the impeachment hearing legal started Nov 13. Please stop your ignorance.

    It’s fun to watch the criminal Republican party eating itself alive.

    This should all be a warning to stop voting republican.

  14. Blah blah blah
    Just lock all of those crooks up and throw away the key.

  15. This ‘administration’ is a bucket of eels biting and poisoning themselves over and over.

    • Thragon68 I think you need to ask questions before assuming all the eels are red or blue. Attentive Americans will see one side telling the other side to shut up and play by the rules of engagement. See there is a story going on here where all the crooks are being outed by a handful of idiots who dont use the lingo or fly by the seat of their pants. If we really look at this we would vote in people who arent crooks on either side. Time to rid Washington of all of them. Btw I’m a Republican but not like the ones you see today, they are wack jobs just like the far lefties. So before you get all judgy playing into their hands think for yourself, ask questions and most of all OBSERVE.

      Huh. Accurate in many ways

    • @Thragon68 Sooooo…
      What have YOU learned from SWORN TREASONOUS tRump staffer testimonials??? Yet you keep posting STUPID ASF stuff.

    I’ve seen rats cannibalize each other in an experiment. This looks like the human version.

    Trump isn’t acting like someone that’s innocent!
    Trump is a thug

    According to Republicans bribery is not impeachable! Unless its a democratic President!!! Oh my!

    • mike wadey he EXTORTED Ukraine, and, by specifically naming his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani as a primary contact for the government of Ukraine, Trump himself removed any and all diplomatic & executive protections from his “favor”. As for the progress of the impeachment inquiry, where are you getting the idea that it’s not going anywhere?

    • @Sam Bacon Who really extorted Ukraine Government is not President Tramp . But That vice President Joe Biden and his son
      And the impeachment is finshed With Tramp Or what-ever they call it at the time.
      But the case will start up again with the Bidens after this kangaroo court is finished With DonaldTramp As you can see for yourself the democrats have got nothing on Trump

    • mike wadey post your evidence for these claims.

    • @Sam Bacon it is not me that needs to post the evidence but it is the Dems that need to do so and thay no prudent as you can see there case is going no wear
      But I am sure thay will try something else.
      God bless America

    • mike wadey they HAVE. They’ve also made the hearings public with public testimony. Now, show us your evidence about the Bidens.

  19. russia had no idea of the tremendous returns on their “investment.”
