    This is exactly what needs to happen. Bring out the mace! Do it for all these criminals protecting Trump. LOCK THEM UP! LOCK THEM UP!

  2. If he refuses charge him with contempt and LOCK HIM UP !

    You have to start nailing these people with contempt and mediately

  4. 🐧…The Penguin Giuliani Wouldn’t Escape Gotham, Arkham Asylum Again! “This Wild Creature has Been Subpoenaed” ..🤪

  5. Guiliani has no immunity from the law.

    • @Shabby Won’t work here because it would be an attempt to cover up a crime.

    • @Gold Clap There is no atty/client privilege here.

    • @Trish Doran very interesting. You all are law students, very well.

    • Trish Doran Lmao, there is no crime. There is no evidence. Y’all just hate the guy. Where’s quid pro quo? Where is Russian collusion? Or obstruction? All nothing buggers. All political theater. Pencil neck Schiff was caught on tape, so was Biden (see new picks of Biden and son with Ukraine gangsters) Clinton paid Ukraine for opo research also a crime. Trump as an executive branch head of state has the right to inquire with any world leader about corruption or possible corruption. Period.

    • Trish Doran um yeah, there is…this is a constitutional matter. There is also executive privilege. Just wait until the “hearing” it will be another flop in the circus that is the Democratic Party. It is pathetic and they should all be investigated for collusion and treason.

  6. *The whistleblower complaint you haven’t heard of relates to Trump’s taxes*
    _An unnamed civil servant is alleging serious interference in government business. If the allegations are true, they could be a game-changer. They might set in motion the release of lots of other secret documents showing that President Trump has abused his authority for his personal benefit._

    • A crime spree that’s bearing fruit but not for 45 and his criminal enablers

    • Hilary, obama, clinton all abused their authority for there personal benefit, even as far as raping underage kids and getting Americans killed and with so much evidence out there yet I don’t see anyone going after them. What I do see is people always going after trump for anything, don’t matter how small it compares to what the others have done. It’s like people are brainwashed or have a personal grudge with the president or try and keep attention on him to keep Americans distracted from all the corruption of the others…

      @Z Rod Go back to watching Fox News and leave this to the adults.

    • @Z Rod No need to worry folks. z rod is just a troll (I’m assuming russian) who’s commenting on every post.

  8. They should have that former prosecutor added to their team, he chewed up Corey Lewandowsk at the last hour of hearing.

  9. I can only hope that more people are concerned about this, regardless of color or party.

    • Dark Star support of either party makes you a part of a cult. We the Americans, want to know all the corruption in our government. God Bless America

      I don’t know people aren’t hitting the streets , like when Nixon got out of control . Someone tells me a time and place nearby , I will join them even though I’m suffering from lung cancer. I just want to live long enough to see justice. Please . Hit the streets people. Start a tax revolt. Nobody file there taxes that have to pay like I do. I have not since Trump took office. If he can prove he pays his fair amount , then I will file mine again.

      Biden is the clown that should be investigated

      @Dean Mulready Biden is a lying POS

    • @Dark Star In my opinion all party are a cult, but I have noticed The Democrats in congress care less about the United States Of America it’s constitution and its citizen.

  10. I like this congress man Mike Quigley, he’s a doer.

    Many Are Getting Arrested

  12. I would love to see inherit contempt utilized if necessary. It would only take one witness being held in contempt to wise up the would be obstructionists.

  13. Has anyone investigated the oranges of the Mueller investigation yet?

  14. Get ready to witness a huge amount of “inherent contempt” from these clowns cause that’s all they know how to do – sidestep every direct question!

  15. *Rudy Giuliani:* When Marrying a Cousin, Alcoholism, Lies & Dementia Collide into a Train Wreck of a Stinky Dumpster Fire.

    • It’s a serious time, trump sheep are in desperate need of support, it’s a difficult situation to realize that you have been conned. We need to help these “people” to become part of society. Peace

  16. Under inherent contempt proceedings, the House or Senate has its
    Sergeant-At-Arms, or deputy, take a person into custody for proceedings
    to be held in Congress.

    Although these powers are not directly stated in the Constitution,
    the Supreme Court has ruled on multiple occasions that they are implicit
    as an essential legislative power held by Congress.

  17. Congressman Quigley and others: We DO NOT want to see a repeat of the Lewandoski hearing prior to Berke’s questioning of him! Please allow Berke and other well groomed prosecutors to ask ALL of the questions. Schiff (stick to the script,) and a few who were prosecutors might be Ok, but for the most part, no congressperson who was not a prosecutor should be wasting anyone’s time with questioning that goes nowhere. Give the prosecutors 30 minutes each and let them go at Giuliani, Pompeo, Barr, with everything they have. Bring in the best prosecutors in the country, like Laurence Tribe, Sanford Levinson, etc., as consultants and staff. If you mess this up, Trump will be re-elected and democracy will crumble. Be smart, get out of the path of success…

    This is scary. What this shows us how vulnerable the US government is, when the checks and balances appear to have little power to invoke oversight.

    • proud El Paso Democrat | September 30, 2019 at 11:32 PM | Reply

      Yes, the US government is vulnerable when oversite is not done, which is what happened until the Dems took the majority the House. Paul Ryan and the rest of the Repubs in Congress really dropped the ball and just let trump have free reign. I thank God that we won the House; hopefully, in 2020 we will kick out McConnell, Cornan and the rest of the jacka___s in the Senate and take back the White House. trump, barr, pompeo and the rest of trump’s army of criminals will already be behind long before then. Rudy, will be in a mental institution reliving his “glory days” in NYC telling the other `residents” how he “saved trump”. Poor man! And trump”s 3 older children will have left the US for parts
      unknown. Russia. or North Korea, or Saudi Arabia???? But…….we all must pray that trump’s words about a Civil War were just more of his hot air BS.

    • Yes, the US government is vulnerable when over site is not done, which is what happened when the Democrats took the majority of the House. nancy pelosi and the rest of the democrats in Congress really dropped the ball and showed there corruption and lies. I thank God that some Americans are waking up from the democrats lies and corruption; hopefully, in 2020 we will kick out nancy pelosi, ilhan omar, nadler, Schiff and the rest of the jacka___s in the Senate and take back America. nancy pelosi, nadler, Schiff and the rest of Clintons army of criminals will already be behind long before then. The clintons will be in a mental institution reliving there corrupt “glory days” telling the other “residents” how they suicide all of the people who had evidence on them And Ilhan omar will have left the US for parts unknown. Russia. or North Korea, or Saudi Arabia since she seems to love sharia law???? But…….we all must pray that trump keeps putting America and it’s citizens first like he has been doing.. God bless America, one nation under god indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

    • @Z Rod you poor delusional fool, it’s not your fault you have been conned. I just hope you can get some help, please don’t end your life because trump has been shown to be the clown that he has always been and just because he will probably end his own life when he is imprisoned like his tag team buddy Epstein. Peace

      @Z Rod Such brainwash nonsense…If the Republicans were doing their jobs, Trump could NEVER have gotten away with so many crimes. You my friend are either a mis informed American or a Russian troll disguised as a concerned US Citizen. I choose to assume the latter.

  19. more likely “INCOHERENT Contempt” from giuliani

  20. I have a question….
    If the call with the Ukraine was so “perfect,”

    Then why did they feel the need to put it on the most secure code-word server?
