  1. Mike would have just lied again. This administration is nothing but crap.

  2. Republicans are dictators. They do what they want, not what the constitution says they should do.

  3. Pompeo..another trump boot licker…

    • @CynAnne1 Nice projection from a butt hurt Leftist

    • Sorry, S M…but *everyone* can read #45’s drivel if they want to…it’s *still there* on his ‘twittyfeed’, grammar-mangled and full of “!” symbols.
      #45 – *SO* embarrassing for America… ๐Ÿ˜’

    • @CynAnne1 A successful Trump being crass and bombastic and not a smooth talker is “embarrassing” but Obama going on a “apology tour” dishing our Country was cool with you . And you wonder why your stuck in the losers bracket

    • @Mainely ya America winning is such a bummer lol

    • @Evan Horn Putin lives in your head along with Trump

    This country needs to do the right thing and protect our democracy by voted out the corrupt republican party and the trump presidency

    • Crystal Giddens:
      โš ๏ธ TROLL/BOT ALERT โš ๏ธ

    • Spam-posting Crystal’s spam-posting… *again.* ๐Ÿ™„

    • The history books are on Trump’s side. Russia hoax, Kavanaugh, the Dem savior Avenatti’s lies, best economy ever, best job market, highest minority employment, and how is that WWIII coming? Dems have 0 to show.

    • Suuuuuure, Aruba… ๐Ÿ™„
      *Just like* Jim Comey was indicted.
      *Just like* John Podesta was indicted.
      *Just like* Greg Craig was convicted.
      #45’s *’accrued’ FOUR disbarred lawyers, SIX former employees who are convicted felons and, at last count, FIVE ‘administration members’ with “Contempt Citations” now ON their resumes.*
      And we won’t even *mention* #45’s *numerous* ‘financial fiascos’… ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ธ

  5. Incredibly disrespectful and insulting.

  6. Do they really think Dems/Independent’s will not remember this when we take back power? Can’t wait to see them gnawing off their right arms in fury when karma bites them in the @$$.

    • Impeachment started out with 52% backing from independents and now it’s 38%. Between the Russia hoax, marches for feelings, Kavanaugh lies, and impeachment rational people are just done with it.

      If the Marxist/Islamist democrat party wins I for one will declare war on you.

    • @Fermis paradox1 You must mean trumps but buddies the saudis who attacked us and he loves playing golf with and renting tower space to.

    Pompeo is another dirty lair like the rest of the Rats ๐Ÿ, They can’t even get their lies Straight, Because everyone says something different, And especially the main leader Trump ! ๐Ÿคข

  8. Gee too bad he was so busy.
    Seems he isn’t too busy to hit all the news circuits with his grandstanding for 45 trying to throw the scent off his impeachment woes.
    All of them (the Trump swamp monsters) need to go.

  9. AND…
    The corruption continues with the trump administration.

    • Sumumma Bish AND DONT forget the Trump family….their motto โ€œincest is bestโ€… just look at Eric. When i look at the photo above, to me they all look constipated ….or are planning their escape!.

    • If you have any proof of that, you should tell Nancy Pelosi. She’s been looking for something …. anything …. for years and still doesn’t have squat. Except for you gullible loser clowns, but nobody cares what you idiots believe because you’e always wrong.


    • @may wilson That’s idiotic, you might as well tattoo “I am a moron” to your forehead if you’re going to post that infantile crap. But let’s exchange facts, like intelligent adults. I’ll go first. Here are mine: https://www.whitehouse.gov/trump-administration-accomplishments/

    Got caught in a lie,compounded t by lying again.didn’t want to get caught again

    • Great so maybe you can tell me what the Iranianian planner of 100s of attacks General Soleimani and his staff were doing in Baghdad, Iraq meeting with militant commanders? Dems must know.

    • Debbie Charron | January 14, 2020 at 5:50 PM | Reply

      @SPZ Aruba don’t know and neither do you.

    • @Debbie Charron exactly. So if he’s lying what’s the truth. Who knows, but the biggest violent destabilizer of Palestine, Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen is gone. And that’s not a bad thing.

  11. This stonewalling has to stop they need to be held accountable these are f_____g gangsters ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘บ๐Ÿ‘น๐Ÿ‘น๐Ÿ–•

    • sorry, but the dems don’t fight hard enough to hold gop accountable for anything. You have an impeachment with the elderly democrat running the judicial hearings half falling asleep while the republican party has people fighting for them that look all coked up. You have this guy with no emotion talking about pompeo not showing up..should have subpoenaed him to begin with, and even then he won’t show up…and you will get the same no energy response. You have a filthy rich 80 yo woman running the house refusing to give up power even though it hurts the democrats…when the dems in the house get the majority, its when the republicans are so bad that dems win in spite of pelosi not because..over 15 years of this nonsense…so no, no one will ever hold republicans accountable…they lied into the iraq war and dems didn’t hold anyone accountable for the did they? whats worse then that.?

    • I agree that Pelosi is dragging her feet and that Democrats sunk the opportunity to push a deal with Iran so that they could push their War Powers dig on Trump. But Pelosi is the speaker, so what can you do?

    Remember the Benghazi hearings? Pompeo is a weak man for not showing up. Of course he could go on Fox for some slow pitch softball.

      Lithuanian Giant
      hillary showed up and took grillings from congress.
      plumpeo only runs away.

    • In 2016, Hillary *warned America* that #45 *would* inevitably treat our nation *just like* his ‘Foundation’…or one of his *many* failed marriages.
      She was ๐Ÿ’ฏ *correct* … ๐Ÿคจ

  13. And someday Americains will wonder how did the dictators take over. It’s just Crazy Stupid.

  14. War criminal Mike Pompeo evading and obstructing Congress, lock him up!

  15. It appears there are very few if any Republicans left that haven’t betrayed America and turned Traitor.

    Mike Pompeo is a stain on West Point, on the U.S. Army, on the State of Kansas, and on America.

  17. Pompeo is nothing but a snake in human form! Heโ€™s also a coward when he is put on the spot and under oath! They all think they can hide

  18. Why, I’m absolutely shocked that a man who’s *lied repeatedly* to the American public wouldn’t want to be questioned *under oath* …
    ‘Shocked’, I tell you. ๐Ÿ™„

    He didn’t show up because when confronted with his lies, he turns into a coward. Simple.
    He feels entitled to do whatever the f#ck he wants. Just another Trump @ss kissing rat.

  20. When you can’t keep your lie straight, it’s usually best to just avoid the situation all together.
