  1. This is the most critical period for my country, not only in my lifetime but in many lifetimes. My fear is that the corrupted White House and the completely complicit Republican Congress will drag my country down to a place it should not and was never meant to be. I, for one, will NOT tolerate it.

    Republicans are happy that no one wore a tan suit.

      Citizens seem to have awaken to the serious impact, our President has plunged us into. How on earth, did we ever reach in such a pivotal, ” sewage like direction”?

    • @J Batson Republican women look a lot better, if you are into lunatics.

    • @P J so your saying he was a coach, a wrestling coach……and it seems that according to you this was young naked men style of …..wrestling…..im not in to that but if its true tell us how you knew about it?

  3. It is far easier to fool and continue to fool a person, than convince them they were fooled in the first place.

  4. GOP Attorney Steve Castor (squished between Nunes and Jordan, thinking to himself): “This is as outlandish as it gets. Get me out of here!”

  5. Jim Jordan should have been this concerned when his students were being sexually abused and he did NOTHING to protect them. Just like now.

    • @TJ W he would be a good Demoncrat then

    • @Brent Young who’s protecting Bill Clinton?

      So, its okay to investigate Trump for three years but a strong potential of corruption in the Ukraine shouldn’t be……brilliant.
      Hunter Biden sits on the board of Burisma, an oil company, while making 83,000/ month doing what?
      Pelosi’s son Paul sits on the board of an oil company Viscoil and AGR doing what?
      Both these companies are connected and both help to regulate oil policy in the Ukraine oil industry.
      The Atlantic council is a supposed benevolent society whose personage is George Soros.
      Soros has contributed billions to the democrats and is behind the funding of many social programs such as Antifa and black lives matter.
      Soros, who owns almost 1 trillion dollars in assets, is known as an international terrorist in two countries.
      Why is this important?
      Soros owns millions of shares in the “Ukraine oil and gas” utility.
      At one point Burisma quadrupled oil prices, lining everyone pockets.
      Nancy and Joe are using their kids towards regulating oil policy, targeting their opposition and lining their own pockets.
      There is more of a story here than you are being told.

      Total nonsense.
      Until you follow Jim Jordan and fairly judge stop the BS.
      There are few more interested in justice, fairness and honesty than Jordan.
      Not everything is about winning, sometimes its about truth.

  6. Police officer: I’ve pulled you over because I caught you speeding back there..

    Republicans: Oh ok, but my car isn’t moving right now.

  7. Oh boy the trolls are out tonight and they’re not from Ukraine.

  8. Gym Jordan was high from sniffing his own jock strap.

  9. Not so fast there Gym Jordan. Thanks to Traitor Trump, America might be the most corrupt country on the planet now.

    • David J
      TRUMP will save USA 🇺🇸 make NO mistake 👍

    • hey legal watch dog, if you didnt already know how the corporate version of the U S “that exist in name only ” is the most unlawful , crooked militaristic, satanic pos country on earth, wake up, do some research, its all a lie, derrrrrrrrr

    • Trump is cleaning the swamp and we are watching the swamp go after him> Trump in 2020

  10. Who voted for these Stooges ?

    I wonder how Jim Jordan is going to spin after today’s hearings how Trump had become even a bigger international joke than is already known!

    • I’m also looking forward to the hearings of Ambassador Jovanovic and Fiona Hill. I hope they tear each of these Republican crazies a new one.

    • Marilyn Reallon | November 15, 2019 at 12:33 AM | Reply

      @TrixiLovesYou it’s not a fair fight with the Republicans, they have no ammunition unless their stupidity is their weapon!

  12. Gym Jordan needs to stop here,go back to OSU and face the men who he let down while they were boys by ignoring the abuse they were suffering.

  13. 😂😂😂 When the defense is “Yeah, but who told you”. 😂😂😂

    Conspiracy is a crime regardless of the outcomes

  15. Jim Jordan has something to hide and needs to be exposed now! He is a Russian lover like Moscow Mitch

    Gym Jordan is the best they’ve got. Let me repeat that: Gym Jordan is the best they’ve got.

  17. “It’s not outlandish as it could be is it” then check the guys reaction behind him

    • christopher weise | November 15, 2019 at 7:56 AM | Reply

      FitwiseTV – I know. It’s ridiculous. It’s like saying “he could’ve murdered all 20 people, instead of just 18 of them.” That’s apparently the best the GOP has.

    • @JoeyFiveandDimes could you repeat that in english for me? 😊

    • JoeyFiveandDimes | November 15, 2019 at 1:57 PM | Reply

      BrooklynGirl   ………………….   Sure ! A ‘Spit-Take’ is a classic comedy foil where one person ( usually the ‘straight man’ ) does or says something so surprising that the ‘comic’ partner spits out water in a sudden explosion . The reaction on the guy’s face was an uncontrolled ‘You gotta be kidding me’ look of unbelief .

    • Haha, yeah. But technically he’s correct. There’s a lot that Trump could have done that would be even more outlandish than trying to bribe Ukraine’s President. He could have nuked New York City, he could have gone on a killing spree in the White House, he could have stripped naked and danced on live TV, he could have admitted that he is a Russian asset… but the impeachment hearing is not about what he could have done, but what he actually did.

      Interesting defence though. Maybe people at trial should try it out. “Your Honor, I shouldn’t be convicted for killing three people, because I could have killed four and that would be even more outlandish, wouldn’t it?”

    • @JoeyFiveandDimes ahhhhh, thanks!! i learned something new today…😉

  18. impeach the freak. vote the “Greedy Old & Perverted/gop” out

  19. Jordan : “so for 55 days we checked him out”.
    And then released the aid?

    Translation: after 53 days we got caught and released the aid before the story went public.

  20. Favorite burn of this year ” Trump is welcome to testify” straight forward. 😂😂😂
