      Citizen World can’t hide from the truth that joe Biden threatened to withhold 1 billion dollars from the Ukraine if the prosecutor investigating joes son hunter was not fired lol
      Are you guys really so dumb as to not realise that any investigation is 0nly going to highlight joe b9dens corruption and Nancy Pelosi has recently said she does not have the votes for impeachment enquires and that’s even before it gets to the republican controlled senate which obviously would never pass it.

      @Roasted Locust rather be a true human than a yellow belly coward of the Blind Creatures . Wake up!

      @Fake News Sucks , the prosecutor in question, Victor Shokin, was corrupt. Everybody wanted him gone, including the Ukrainian people, the EU, and nearly everybody else. He wasn’t even investigating Burisma when Biden insisted he get removed. This might help you understand the situation, but it requires reading, which Trump supporters don’t like doing, just like their leader.

      @David Champagne , you can’t call others “Blind Creatures” when your eyes are welded shut with Trump’s cum.

    He knows, he’s just too gutless to say so publicly.

    • GOP are stil unsure, do they wanna go agaisnt Trmup! I hope they get there and reaslise, YES go aagainst the idiot!

    • GOP lawmaker on quid pro quo: It’s serious and troubling
      Trumpaholics and trump: NOT illegal!!!!!

    • Gutless? There is nothing to gain for him to already convict trump in an interview with cnn. Judge when he needs to choose sides in congress…

    • @SportySP
      Actually, his response is TOTALLY gutless. It shows he, like most repub legislators, are afraid of being primaried out if they stand up to this lawless azzholeo.

    • showlogicprod disagree completely with you there. He is very critical in this interview of how Trump is behaving. You are just looking for a conviction when there isn’t even trial yet and the jury isnt in session.

  3. “I have other things to do” like ? Finding your spine and your balls? Might be to late.

    • he says he is not like others who would follow trump off the side of the cliff of the grand canyon, but if he decides not to run it is because he has other things to do. BS

    • All Trump fans are basically amoral morons. Bottom line. I wouldn’t associate with any of the filthy vile creeps.

    • 👍👍👏👏Only argument from the brain dead cult members of any party is to accuse the person you disagree with a member of the other cult they hate.Talk about have no balls!!!!

    They are scared to just come out and say he needs to go. These GOP members are grasping at straws now.

    • NO the Socialists are and have been for the last 3 years.

    • Erving Henderson | October 19, 2019 at 12:37 AM | Reply

      @GunDrone socialists? Pick a new argument because the “socialists” one is old and tired. Read a book and learn what socialism is before trying to make it an arguable point.

    • @Erving Henderson , I know what Socialism is hence why it is relevant. All Democrats are Socialists now. That is what happens when you allow Socialists into your political party. They all become Stalin’s Useful Idiots.

    • What’s the point when the election is right around the corner?? Just vote him out of office. Trump or no Trump, voters will still elect another republican president because the new democrat party is to scary and dangerous.

    • GunDrone

      You’re an idiot and don’t know what socialism is.

      Hate to tell you but America has been adopting socialist policies since the early 1900’s.

      Overtime, the 40 hour work week, ending child labour, social security, workers compensation, etc.

  6. omg.

    “It’s very clear now”

    “Do you believe this is impeachable?”

    “I went to law school….so I can’t really say. I don’t know”

    lol WTF

  7. It’s literally watergate if everyone involved in the coverup was somehow dumber.

  8. Imagine the killer saying ‘yeah I did it, so what?’ and the response from the jury is ‘hmm, we need to see more’. What?!?!?!?! Wake up!

  9. “Reading what this impeachment thing is”

    Hahaha have you read the thing called the “constitution” people are talking about???

    • How can he read anything about it? The Dems won’t release any transcripts.

    • @soylentdean The point is that he needs to have knowledge of what’s in the Constitution in regard to impeachment regardless of what’s going on. That’s the basis of our government. It would be like a doctor needs to know medicine regardless of who walks through the door!

    • Five Minute Genius | October 18, 2019 at 7:04 PM | Reply

      Have you ? The intell. committee doesn’t get to impeach the President behind closed doors with secret witnesses!!

    • @Five Minute Genius They’e not trying to. The House is conducting an impeachment inquiry. It’s within their rights to do it behind closed doors. . Btw it’s the Senate that has to pass the impeachment.

    • No. He can’t even spell it!

  10. The difference Mr. President is that this is not a fight in a parking lot. This is a fight where people lose their lives, and this is most certainly not a game.

    Oh wow look, another republican that is scared to say anything…

    • But… He was actually surprisingly candid. He only evaded on whether it was impeachable, to which he said “want to see all the facts”, which is hard to fault. Everything else was direct and very critical of the president

      @Austin Conner facts? Trumps a criminal. End of inquiry

    He is a congressman and does not know if that is impeachable offenses thas crazy

    • yaya jajajaja la jajajaja oh he definitely knows….they all know. Most of them are lawyers, they know, they have staff members, well versed attorneys who know impeachment law. Ignorance of the law is no excuse of it, isn’t that what we’re all told everyday when we go to court for any offense? Lol

    • Attempting to have the G7 at his own hotel should be considered an impeachable offense in and of itself. The man has blatantly violated the emoluments clause from day 1.

    • @Julian Birch Check out the G7 summit. Trumps hotel met every criteria for the meeting
      It was chosen for its location and security,
      Here is the part you will ignore,Trump is hosting this event at you understand what that means.
      He is saving the tax payer millions,
      So you want to impeach, because Trump is not making a profit .? what is wrong with you people.

  13. This is what selling your soul looks like.

  14. I cant believe this is the United States of America.

    • if it ain’t foreign it’s borin! Actually I can. I see it through my grands, my daughter, my wife! I live it everyday! I have marched with my brother, I have stood up for my brother! I’m not THAT white man! I cry when I see what happens to my fellow human beings in my nation! Please don’t assume that I am racist, bigoted, or a hypocrite! May you find peace and love in your journey!

  15. Trump: “I don’t know Mulvaney, I heard he’s a great guy.”

    • @Little Janmarie really? My dad died of that so why don’t you tell me his symptoms that match that disease?

    • Little Janmarie | October 19, 2019 at 2:06 AM | Reply

      @James Bricesorry for your loss. It’s a statement. There was no ill will.. Just clear observations. He rambles when he speaks.. He uses mainly superlative when he talks( wonderful.. Hugely.. Etc). He. Has shown that he has difficulty drinking from a glass of water.. Just listen to him and see if there is substance in his negative.. Hateful name calling downward spiraling spéeches

    • @Little Janmarie he has no trouble drinking water. His ability to immediately draw data and facts from his mind is astounding. He constantly out wits his enemies and shows not one single sign of dementia. Biden does.


  16. Nothing to see here, just another double-talking GOP jack*ss.

  17. Senator Rooney: “I went to law school… but I can’t answer that question” … *looks around for his spine*

    • 404 that’s an error. The requested spine was not found

    • He’s not a senator, he’s a member of the House.
      Additionally, I’m not against him waiting to hear all the evidence before declaring whether he is for impeachment.

    • GOP Senator Rooney needs to study more to get to impeaching the traitor 45th. Wow…funny how these GOP CONs don’t need to study anything when it comes to impeaching a DEM president (Clinton) for lying about just an affair with Monica M. GOP is a CON & FRAUD party!

    • @Argus Skyhawk you and i and fox & friends are not privy to all the information that is being gathered. stop pretending that this is just another ploy. an impeachment trial will play out everyday on national television. this is not a game.

  18. “I went to law school but never practiced law.” “I don’t know, I wanna study it some more.”

    He knows

    • yes thats kind of what I thought he said. Maybe all those lawyers in both Houses need some constitutional law refreshers. The House does not have to vote until ready. They are doing an Inquiry just like a Grand Jury would. And quid pro quo doesnt have to be proven. The FEC rules are just that obsequious.

    • Fake News Sucks red herrings don’t make this situation go away friend. I don’t like Biden either. Want to know the real difference between those two? One of them is president, another isn’t. That’s why we’re talking about the very real and probable event of impeachment

      And I just watched it. Want to know the difference between the two? Biden is self congratulatory for sure, but he was being directed by US ambassadors in Kiev to oust a prosecutor who was seen as corrupt, something Marie Yovanovitch had been working to combat in Ukraine. There were literal protests in Ukraine to get rid of the prosecutor. This was a coordinated effort among multiple agencies, not for personal political gain like Trump.

      Quid pro quo’s ARE used in politics, but they are used for the benefit of the United States, not personal political gain.

      Withholding American tax payer dollars (in the form of military aid) in order for a foreign government to investigate a political opponent for personal gain is an impeachable offense. There is no twisting or defending that.

    Exept in this case, innocent civilians were killed, while we betrayed our Kurdish allies.

      James Brice where did you read that the US paid the Kurds to fight ISIS? Because I don’t hear any other republican but Trump saying that

    • Emmanuel Adeniyi | October 18, 2019 at 11:06 PM | Reply

      James Brice Trump pulled the troops out of Syria after a phone call with Turkish leader, a country he has conflicts of interest in. He has buildings in Turkey but yes believe the other idea that a Trump has a clue or cares about anyone else but himself

    • Emmanuel Adeniyi | October 18, 2019 at 11:13 PM | Reply

      James Brice there weren’t 28 soldiers that he withdrew it was 1000 and he didn’t withdraw them he relocated them. STOP GETTING YOUR INFORMATION FROM TRUMP. HE’S BEEN RECORDED WITH OVER 12,000 LIES TO DATE SINCE TAKING OFFICE

    • @Emmanuel Adeniyi then I’ll find out

    • @Emmanuel Adeniyi Yeah…it was more like 50 soldiers. Time to pull out. Pelosi was always for pulling out of every conflict. She and the Democrats tried to cut off funding to the War on Terror, tried to close Gitmo, they cut the hell out of military funds during Obama’s reign and depleted our fighting ability to the max. They cheered Obama for pulling out of Iraq which caused ISIS to raise, and they tried to get Obama to pull out of Afghanistan but instead, he increased troops there. So all of a sudden Nancy and the Democrats are war hawks?
