      @jabberwolf – if you don’t know then you are completely out of touch with the whole thing and it would be pointless to go over it with you.

      @JUST ME – True but it has to be done because our Constitution, democracy is at stake here as well as the rest the country and its laws. Trump for to long has been hiding behind presidency and the protections it offers to him and it is time for justice to have its turn. Otherwise all of laws, constitutional rights and Declaration of Independence has no meaning and is nothing more than just a piece of paper with words on it.

      @Don Mueller said he couldn’t determine that Trump committed a crime look it up its on YouTube

    • don’t bother with the naysayers. I recognize most of them as at least semi professional trolls who rarely respond with anything besides bile and insults. i’m looking specifically at little davy shultz..

  4. An Impeachment INQUIRY will bring to Light the Depth and Breadth of Donald Putin’s Crimes, on Full Display for the American People!

      We can’t predict what will happen 50 or 100 years from now, but the current Trump phenomenon is a grand step towards the restoration of the original ideals of our Republic. Yes, power can be abused, but in the right hands, power is a wonderful thing. The patriotic forces behind the President are rooted in honor and dignity, a love of country and of God. in contrast, it is the forces that oppose him who are without scruples or conscience. They advance their causes by deception. The voting public must be sufficiently brainwashed with false narratives for them to remain in power.

    King Donald, it actually sounds so insane that I think its legit what he’s trying to achieve

    • Thank god that natural causes will take him soon enough…. that and KFC.

      Im a psychologist specialising in narcissism – that is 100% what he has in mind – he has no intention of even holding a 2020 election and deffo won’t honour the result if he is forced to hold one and loses.

    Get all the evidence thats needed and get this buffoon out of the white house ! We the people want justice and we want it soon ! Impeach impeach impeach !

      You mean you fools want to break the laws in this country and not be held accountable? You people are fools msnbc lies so much what a joke

      @michelle stein-evers frankl Pence stands less of a chance of getting elected than trumputin

  7. The Founding Fathers failed to imagine an invertebrate, pusillanimous Congress.

    • Interestingly enough, the guy who brought ”pusillanimous” back in modern English from the depths of the Middle Ages was Spiro Agnew, who was subsequently forced to resign by U.S. Congress that also forced his infamous boss to resign from his POTUS position. Just a bit of food for thoughts… *wink-wink*

    • @altitude illume cease imbibing alcohol, knucklehead.

  8. I hope that all of Trump’s crimes come to light eventually. In the meantime, the House must bring enough truth to light for America to demand impeachment and conviction before the 2020 election.

    • Black Lightning | August 9, 2019 at 6:16 AM | Reply

      They already had their chance with the Mueller testimony, and it failed hard for them. Everyone’s opinion on impeaching Trump is set in stone, and its really only the Democratic base who wants it to happen. A majority of Americans are against impeaching Trump. The only chance the Democrats have left of getting Trump out of office is the 2020 election, and their frontrunner is a doddering old man who is now getting attacked for his record of working with the most popular Democratic president in recent times, so good luck with that.

    • Dee Pattison | August 9, 2019 at 9:08 AM | Reply

      I doubt that all of DJT’s crimes will ever come to light. They are numerous and people tend to believe that no one could do the things Trump does without blinking.

    Jerry Nadler, the King of summer. Correct as always, these hearings and the House oversight function is ongoing through 2021. The delays from the witnesses they need from the government are taking the time.

    Trump is a psychopath. Lack of empathy, pathological lying, bullying, sexual promiscuity, prone to boredom, criminal versatility, lots of marriages and kids, callousness, grandiose sense of self importance, prone to violence….all on the List. Educate yourselves on psychopaths. Google the PCL-R by Dr. Robert Hare.

    All Republicans except those who will not seek reelection in 2020 will effectively be OPTING and VOTING Out of DEMOCRACY into DICTATORSHIP.

    • Elizabeth Djokovic | August 9, 2019 at 6:38 AM | Reply

      Imagine if he succeeds in becoming a dictator!

      America’s worst nightmare!

      The man knows no boundaries. He has no moral compass.

      He would have everything that he touches turn to gold. His only concern is staying in office. He’s desperate to remain there so he can better evade being called to account. Sooner or later he’s going to face music not so sweet to his ears.

      You can’t eat gold. And you can’t trust a habitual liar and cheat.

      You can’t teach someone who thinks he’s a genius when all the evidence points to the contrary. He’s betrayed the trust of the American people and has been stirring up trouble every which way he can.

      Those who still support him should wake up to where he’s leading them -over a cliff..Haven’t they figured him out yet?
      He’s not capable of doing the job. He’s bringing the country down.

      Hopefully the democrats will put him where he belongs. He doesn’t belong in the White House.

      @Elizabeth Djokovic Trump’s doing a great job. You tried fake charges on Trump for 2 solid years.

    • @Closeoutracer You are either a TROLL, or a complete fool and terribly deluded. IF…IF you actually believe what you write? Then look at yourself in the mirror: You are a cultist.
      Ya know how ridiculous your statement about the Democrats trying to achieve a “dictatorship” because the election didn’t go their way in 2016? Beyond absurd. I guess you weren’t born yet in the year 2000? THAT election was stolen, yes. Pure and simple. OH, and BTW? Nadler’s upcoming charges will not be “fake”. The State of New York alone already has enough evidence to put cry-baby orange hemorrhoid away in prison.

  12. opinion: that guy will not stop until he is behind bars. “The ICC thus has jurisdiction to prosecute Donald Trump for the crime against humanity of other inhumane acts”

  13. Ivanka trump emolument clause subpoena next for public hearing. Get your popcorn going again, folks.

    • @Scaffgal I would think that voting machines would be manufactured and assembled locally. So, getting a trademark from China “should” not affect our machines. With that said, it’s still important to verify the first assumption here.

    • @Jackie C wish I could vote, but can’t. I’m Canadian. Grrr… lol

    • @Scaffgal lol. Well then… hope y’all doing well up there, neighbor.

    • MrsCee Murray | August 9, 2019 at 11:19 AM | Reply

      I will most definitely be glued to my TV for that.

  14. Geez, if you have all this evidence then do something. Hurry up and get impeachment going. People are dying!

    • Juan Gonzalez | August 9, 2019 at 7:31 AM | Reply

      Neil Wilson they arenโ€™t doing anything because they are lying they have nothing on Trump. If they did they would have donโ€™t something about it already.

    • Neil Wilson LoL at you. Stupidity at its finest…..

    Glad your started the impeaching process

    • Juan Gonzalez | August 9, 2019 at 7:33 AM | Reply

      Ronald Funderburk they havenโ€™t started anything. They are wishing for it but still have no evidence after 4 years lol. No evidence means no impeachment.

    • Taylor Plumley | August 9, 2019 at 12:17 PM | Reply

      @Juan Gonzalez no evidence lol
      Good luck with that.

    • @Juan Gonzalez The evidence is everywhere. The State of New York has plenty, enough to put the orange hemorrhoid in prison. tRUMPski-von-Putin’s only hope is to run away once he’s ousted. He will have to find a country without an extradiction agreement…say, Russia???
