    Does Trump know anyone who isn’t a criminal? I really don’t think so

    • @Grm Cia Fine, but my news isn’t your news nor is my big picture from idiots like fox. Calm down and know who’s who.

      He knows tons of people that aren’t criminals. They just don’t support him.

    • Maybe Baron, ….but give him a few years, he’s still learning about how to be completely amoral and law-breaking.

    Matt and Jim Jordan are dirty thieves picked to destroy America

    • Gym has yet to answer his high school student accusers, when he was wrestling coach, that he did nothing when his students were sexually abused by the team doctor. Instead, Gym looked the other way, preferring to let it slide.

      @ss he was probably watching because if someone comes to you and says they’ve been assaulted the first thing a normal person does is report it to the police given that it was an allegation of his colleague! But I still think Jordan is a kiddie fiddler as well!

      Trump too!!

  3. They should have been arrested! They know the game is up, this was obstruction of justice! 😡

    • @HighStreet Killers Who got arrested? Where did you hear that?

    • @Greg M Amen to that.

    • @HighStreet Killers Ah, you think this is a trial. Well, lying or ignorant Republicans have been very persistent in giving the public that very false impression. You are one of the many they counted on to believe that nonsense.

      This is in the investigation phase. NO ONE except those directly involved in the investigation has any right to be in the room or have any knowledge of what is going on until the investigation is completed. It’s just like the Mueller investigation, only in Congress. It’s secret. It SHOULD be. All of the information gathered here will be submitted to the House in a report, and then the debate on impeachment will begin.

      As for people violating the security of these depositions, yes, they should be arrested and locked up for security violation, disruption of a Congressional proceeding, or whatever. I’m not sure exactly what the charge is, but it would be whatever they arrest people for when they disrupt a Congressional hearing. Ten days ago Gaetz crashed and had to be removed from a closed hearing of a committee he’s not a member of. It’s time for him to be censured and removed from office.

    • Matthew Bollinger I thank the Republicans for admitting Trump is guilty. Its like a mass shooter getting arrested in the act and his defense is, the cop that arrested him had the wrong color shoes on. Its hilarious how dumb Republicans are, only wanting to appeal to delusional morons.

      @HighStreet Killers What are you talking about? This isn’t the trial. They are investigating/gathering information that will be sent forward to the actual “trial” which will be held in the Senate. Did you really think this was the trial itself?

      Trust me, once it gets to the Senate you are going to hear a lot of republican leaders doing everything they can to prevent testimony from getting released to the public. The same ones that are currently convincing you that the opposite should take place. And I suspect that you will either be agreeing that it shouldn’t be released or you will be sitting in the corner with your fingers in your ears… denying all of the facts and parroting whatever FOX tells you. Just a guess.

    Criminals gravite towards other criminals

    • Joe Biden bragging about firing the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating his son Hunter Biden.
      Here is the video
      https://youtu.be/UXA–dj2-CY

    • That’s why Matt is a trump supporter…venomous snake.

    • Gonzalo Smith Matt Gates told the truth you can’t say that about Adam Schiff! LOL 😂

      @Red894336643 FIRST? You cannot even spell the name of the “man” from Florida that you wish to defend. SECOND” VP Joe Biden did NOT “brag”. That Ukrainian prosecutor was removed BECAUSE the EU, the IMF, most of the entire world AND the USA wanted him gone!!!! Geezus, you must be thick, or only get your “news” (fake news” from biased ‘sources’.

  5. Makes sense, Gaetz is a spoiled child like Trump

    • Yes. He’s Trump 2.0. I think Gaetz, Nunes, and Jordan are all bucking to be the next cult leader of Trump’s base, so that when Trump is removed, resigns, dies, or loses in 2020, they will step up to run for President in 2024.

  6. Matt Gaetz- is a bonafide KHUNT. we are watching you Punk.

  7. Hermann Musnster’s kid brother a.k.a. Matt Gaetz and his Band of Republitards.

    All these Republicans should go to jail or fine !!!!
    No excuse for anyone in that group ! !!!!!

    • I think their punishment is built in, their political stunt has a rest backfired according to the media coverage including the fact that 100 republicans are attending the investigations with equal time for comments/questions. Also the republicans did the very same closed door investagation concerning Benghazi.

    • Death for TREASON to AMERICA.Republican are not amune to TREASON they stand with a TRAITOR.

      @PJH199 1 You do realize that there are already Republicans in the ROOM. You know the ones that are actually PART OF THE COMMITTEE. Stop being SHEEP listening to FAUX NEWS.

      @Red894336643 That’s FAKE NEWS. Biden Son didn’t even work for UKRAIN when Biden was fighting that CORRUPT Ukrainian prosecutor. You are a FOOL.

  9. Florida residents, if you are arrested by them for drunk driving, request FREEDOM OF INFO On Matt Gaetz traffic stop, court case, same judge, and same DMV!

  10. No wonder! He was actually a burglar! Matt Gates is no doubt a criminal in life and death and politics.

  11. In case you didn’t notice, Matt is now an obstructionist, ignoring House rules.

  12. Matt, is Trump jr.

  13. I like how Mitch’s response was “you’ll have to ask him” when the answer was obviously, yes, Trump was lying

    • It didn’t even occur to ol’ McTurtle that no one in their right mind would go ask a liar if he lied or not.

    Gaetz is sleazy little shitpile, who I would happily repeatedly punch him in the face!

    • DamnedXtians Joe Biden is on video doing EXACTLY what the Democrats are accusing Trump of…..hypocrisy too funny!

      @Red894336643 Biden was part of a multi national effort headed by several EU diplomats, the International Monetary Fund and the Anti-Corruption Action Center in Keiv to oust Viktor Shokin. So what your saying is Obama placed Biden on this team along with all of these anti corruption groups from several countries in order to commit corruption? That really is a stretch. I guess old Joe deserves this conspiracy theory for gloating over something that he really didn’t have to much to do with.

      @Red894336643Im not making this up, you should stop believing in tinfoil hat conspiracies.

    What a bunch of clown Republicans, it’s called obstruction of justice! Anyone else would have gotten arrested!

  17. Matt Gaetz is like the real-life equivalent of Butthead – no offense to Butthead, of course.

  18. They don’t have brain just like trump.they should be punished by ethic committee.

  19. That’s probably not all this clown is guilty of!

  20. Why are these people above the law? When ‘We the People’ pull stunts like that ..
    we are arrested.!!!

      Yeah, I see nothing majorly wrong with the protest itself. Democrats do similar things. However, the second they forced their way into that chamber they went way over the line. I’m no expert but even I can see that.
