    Why didn’t you charge him with more is the most idiotic defense I’ve ever heard. 🙄

      @L X because of all of this he will win re-election. Leftists are completely out of touch with reality. Blame your own brainwashing on the media and academia.

      @JustWasted3HoursHere blue wave? Lol. Who cares. Trump will be re-elected, stocks will up-tick, the economy will continue to grow, employment will continue to climb, idiots will be easier to spot than ever, Islam will be checked in this country and abroad and so their will be peace in the homes of tax paying middle class Republicans while the well fare state Dems will be checking into shelters.

    • The entire Republican defense of Trump is, “Aw, you just hate him.”

    • @Maxwell Hargreaves if you still believe in trump after all that hes said and done then YOURE the one out of touch

      Are Uluru okay that it was virtually a partisan vote?

      Lapin074 Bill Clinton (remember, the Democrat who stuck his erect penis in the head of that Jewish intern) & his wench are Southerners

      Ho Ho Ho

      And, no, that’s not referring to Hillary, but I could see why one might think that.

  4. Rep Amash said it best, “As an American”.

    • @William H Music 2020 *”the Democrats already know the Republicans won’t impeach Trump in the senate”*
      That’s true. It’s a given that most Rep. would go/have gone to prison, and/or sell their mothers up the stream, rather than admit …
      1. they couldn’t control the senile tweeting Kim Jong-un wanna be
      2. they were responsible for allowing the USA to become synomous with the _Country Most Likely to Stab Their Allies in the Back_ and/or _Laughing Stock of the World_ …. when it extolled the virtues of fossil fuels at the UN climate talks in Poland.

      Amash is an American who wants socialism, communism, and a complete government takeover of our economy. No thanks Amash.

    Collins talks like a rambling, incoherent drunkard.

  6. Jim Jordan says, “When you drain the swamp, the swamp fights back.” So he actually admits they are all crooks? What an idiot! How about we just put all of them in jail?

    • @jeff h
      Trump will NOT be re-elected because…
      trump China tariffs has lost the farmers $40 billion in soybean sales contracts Now Putin sells $40 billion in soybeans to commie China.
      trump China tariffs lost the ranchers $20 billion in pork sales contracts. Now Putin sells $20 billion in pork to South America & commie China.
      trump lost the confidence of police fire steel workers coal miners. Their jobs never came back.
      trump lost the confidence of ALL law enforcement professionals. trump repeatedly stated he believed our enemies and not our intelligence services
      trump lied about his 100% deficit $2.8 trillion welfare for the rich tax cut and now the middle class is not receiving their tax returns.
      18 million republicans who voted for Trump received a bill from the IRS instead of a 2019 tax return and in 2020 they can expect the same gift from trump
      Factories that implemented “Right to Work” ( Owners Right to Screw You ) are now closed and relocated to Mexico
      What did the workers get under Right to Work…
      2 months severance pay – NO health insurance – 1 yr unemployment insurance – No retraining – Pensions are now reduced or GONE
      If they were still union they would have received…
      2 years severance pay – 18 month health insurance extension – 18 months unemployment insurance – retraining for other careers – Pension 100% protected
      ALL right to Work factories WILL move overseas. You pushed out the union which protected your jobs

    • *No, not exactly. What he was saying is..– The NWO wants their country back! To fight their wars, send US tax dollars to nation leaders making them rich, to open borders ensuring US social services can never keep up. and more chaos, chaos, chaos.. It’s the only way they can regain power.*

    • Not all crooks. Just a majority

  7. Justin Amash is an honorable guy, and a good Michigander.

    • @52 80
      STOP being gullible
      If Hunter Biden’s taking a job was a potential corruption issue
      Why did’nt the Repug-Bull-KLANs investigate this back in 2014?
      Repug-Bull-KLANs were in charge of the congress and senate
      2014 – 2015 – 2016 – 2017 – 2018
      So for 5 years it was not an issue??????????????????????????

    • @52 80 Waaaa Waaaa

    • Amash has a tool company and they mfg all their tools in China… HIs attacks are money based, not principle based.

    • @honey badger of the truth I am a 73 yr old grandmother and a Christian Believer, I am now a registered Democrat though I am actually a DFL. That’s ” Democrats for Life.”.should I be hung? Should my grand daughter who teaches handicapped children be hung? How about her sister who just got accepted to medical school? What about their mother who is an R.N. ? How about my Democrat son who works with getting life saving medicines available for us? Should we all be hung? “Swing by our neck” ? We all are all now voting Democrat. We ALL are astounded, stunned and ashamed of our current President who is a lackey for dictators, who counts oligarchs and Russian organized criminals among his business “associates”, who has betrayed our allies, the Kurds, and a President of the USA who encourages White Nationalists Neo-Nazi groups referring to them as”some good people”. Because we are ashamed of a President like Donald Trump, you think we should be executed by hanging?

  9. I hear the hillbilly talk.
    I want to tie him to a diction book. . . And MAKE him smarter.

  10. When the republicans start yelling louder that means that they are running out of excuses.

  11. Rep Doug Collins needs to go back to calling cattle auctions.

  12. Good for Amash 👏👏👏👏👏Such a Brave man.

  13. WHY doesn’t a SINGLE Republican have the moral center to protect our Constitution?

    • Wasn’t it the illiterate Trumpturd that kept SHOUTING “FAKE NEWS” MEDIA? Hmmm..doesn’t really sound like a president who would support “freedom of speech.” unless it’s from him, but the problem is… Trumpturd’s a COMPULSIVE LIAR!

    • Giorno Giovanna | December 18, 2019 at 9:55 PM | Reply

      @Like Thompson so what he said fake news because he was speaking the truth, they clearly were trying to slander him.

    • Three reasons: (1) They’re deathly afraid of Trump’s base back in their districts, (2) They know that as vindictive as Trump is, he will primary them in 2020. (3) They’re afraid he will give them a nasty nickname on Twitter and call them losers

    • Cenk Uygur – libtard? Grow up

  14. Rep. Amash absolutely nails it in a “mic drop” moment.

    • John Coloe never been a big fan of Amash never voted for him because his affiliation with the DeVos’s but now that their not supporting him anymore maybe he will come around, but probably not.

    • Amash is a fraud… His tool company mfg’s all their tools in China. When the trade war hit he started making up BS charges.. which Democrats cling to as part of their party platform.

  15. When a Repug shows an actual spine he knows the party of criminal thugs Will throw him under the bus.

      Rep. Justin Amash is what Republicans SHOULD be! He will be back in office one day soon… He is principled and BRAVE.

  17. This should be a holiday 👏🏽👏🏽impeachment day

    • A G everyone will remember those that abused the impeachment process and used it to steal a presidency from an individual that they couldn’t beat honestly. Many of us know that this is being done because Trump was clearly going to win in 2020 and the elite who run the world were scared.

    • Will be at my place, started now, regardless.

    • Councilman Les Wynan | December 18, 2019 at 9:19 PM | Reply

      A G Enjoy your hollow victory. Trump will be completely exonerated in the Senate, and you know this.

    • Eh… I think it should be marked with a solemn sigh. It needed to be done, but I would much have preferred that the man made the leader of our nation rose to the occasion and represented our interests with dignity and integrity. Since that didn’t happen, here we all are. Putin is likely giggling like a little school boy right now.

    • I’d be a weird holiday

  18. Abuse of power is not a high crime and misdemeanor, the Republicans say.

    Smells like the words of dictator’s yes men.

  19. These are historic time’s, Justin Amash. Thank you for doing the right thing.

  20. I love Justin Amash. He has a spine, a brain and believes in protecting our constitution. I may not agree with him on policy but we must have both sides to have a democracy and I wish there were many more like him on the right. His tweets are also 🔥
