  1. Vindman a patriot and hero. Trump a coward and traitor.

  2. The whistleblower is irrelevant, at this point. There are plenty of patriots coming forward against the bloated tangerine.

    • The orange stain is feeling the pressure of true Patriots.

      CShield: Not to the president, he/she isn’t relevant. The president would love to ruin the whistleblower’s professional life, at the least.

    • WestOfEarth : They’re STILL trying to get the REWARD! $500,000, remember? While America BURNS, they can, “look,” like they’re trying to help the Orange Orifice, whilst lining their pockets if they get a clue, right? That’s what they get paid for . . . SMH

    • CShield the bloated tangerine or the orange tool. Lol

  3. The sooner Trump leaves office, the sooner he goes to prison.


  4. Trump was hoping to receive the purple heart for announcing the death of Al-Baghdadi and promoting his own book.

    • REVO 13 : Who would name an Aircraft Carrier, The Orange Traitor 🤔 . . . 😉✌️

    • Fox should be charged with obstruction and Witness Intimidation. They’re making America SICK of the Propaganda, when they TRY to tear up the reputations of American heroes. They crossed a new line in their Desperation . . . Smh 👍

    • @Ash Roskell …or ‘The Impeached Pres’?

      Biggus Dickus no one with the ability to nominate a Nobel Peace Laureate will ever name him. He is the most disliked president in the history of the USA.

  5. A draft dodger who refused to serve his nation VS a war hero who took a bullet serving his nation voluntarily.

  6. It’s really hard to lie and smear someone you don’t know.

  7. All these republicans are becoming accomplices to trump crimes

      @John Winslow ummmmmm TDS just got you put on the FBI watch list John. Wow.

    • @Brilliant Hooligans True Hollowen story
      Jeffy brought molonia here illegally threw human trafficking as a child and then sold her to Trump like a trophy so he can say look what I bought for a prop
      Jeffy didn’t last long in jail that should back up this story

    • @Brilliant Hooligans Look Trump has over six thousand paid trolls working night and day to snap into action against any web site or TV show to confuse and distract the average American
      This crap won’t ever work again except for low IQ Trumpanzees

    • Wow, so the trolls are now just threatening people.
      Who thought that kind of strategy would work? Certainly no american would.
      Very telling

    Witness intimidation, obstruction of justice. It’s not just Trump, it’s Republicans in Congress too.

      @Jeremy Backup You see, people would believe you if you didn’t use hypotheticals then project it as truth. You have zero evidence to back your claims other then your fake hatred that CNN told you to have. Jeremy you also have zero validity to your assumptions of future events because current and past events have demolished your narrative. Now to call me a POS because I support the guy exposing past corruption doesn’t make any dents because your credibility has been lost. Sorry buddy. You have no facts. Just hateful banter. I bet you get triggered when someone chants USA USA USA USA huh?

      @Brilliant Hooligans Your replies are sickeningly humorous, or would be in another place in time. The FACTS are the president asked for Ukrain to investigate a political rival. There has been several investigations of Biden in Ukrain for which he & his family exonerated. Hunter started his job 2 years after Vice-President Biden helped get rid of a corrupt Russian prosecutor in Ukrain. Everything you listen to on fox is opinions & very dangerous opinions. I won’t change your mind, but try local fox news, NBC, CBS & ABC, they’re all reporting the same facts as cnn or msnbc.

      Lamont Bellows Two countries Presidents and the administrations disagree with your opinion. Your feelings are irrelevant because your team lost.

    • Brilliant Hooligans | October 30, 2019 at 11:41 AM | Reply

      Lamont Bellows are you mad because Biden got caught? Or mad because Biden got caught by Trump?

    • @Brilliant Hooligans Trump (and his criminal friends) got caught attempting to smear a political rival by bribing an ally. If you think Biden got “caught” you are criminally stupid like Trump

    Republicunts are just terrible people, through and through.

      @Jeremy Backup And what are all the millions upon millions exploding with diversity and ages who fill arenas across the nation of the UNITED STATES supporting the President called? Your red pill is waiting for you once you cut your puppeteers strings off. Stay safe out there. Your tDS will get you in a bad place. Come to a rally and get hugged and loved on. #KAG #Trump202 #AmericaFirst

    • America needs help now, if you are a Patriot now is the time to get serious and get tough.

    • @Jeremy Backup patriots Vs idiots.

  10. Smell that?

    It’s the faint scent of republican desperation setting in…

  11. The Russian asset fake 45 who is a spineless coward of epic proportions, along with his family sycophants have completely undermined America democracy. Karma is coming

    At this point: Why do they keep protecting and attack witnesses? What does he have on them?

    • That’s what I said!

    • A Queen Stands Alone | October 30, 2019 at 7:39 AM | Reply

      BellaDelilahWho Putin & Russian money

    • The Republicans know Trump is guilty, that’s why their only defense is to attack the witnesses. They have no facts on their side, they can’t claim Trump didn’t break the law, they can’t argue that he didn’t commit Impeachable offenses, so their only hope is to try and discredit all of the American Patriots that come forward.

    Trump is the whistle blower.. telling Russia everything he knows!

  14. I asked my Alexa to list all of tRumps lie’s. She hasn’t stopped none stop for over a month now & I think we are only at lie # 9235 out of over 13,000 ever mounting.

  15. With all the witnesses the whistle blower does not even matter anymore….

  16. Republicans are trying to imtimidate witnesses so future witnesses will think twice

  17. Stephen Tomsky | October 30, 2019 at 2:39 AM | Reply

    Revealing the whistle-blower is a violation of federal law, a.k.a. a felony. if Trump manages to reveal that person he and anyone who helped him is a felon.

    There are only three people who are allowed to know who the whistle-blower is, The whistle-blower, his/her lawyer, and the particular Inspector General this was reported to. That Inspector General is legally bound to not reveal that identity to anyone unless he personally decides it is impossible to protect that identity or it becomes necessary to reveal that person’s identity for purposes of prosecuting someone on the basis of that testimony. (DOJ already blithely passed on investigating so the second ship has sailed)

  18. Republicans: Second hand info! Hearsay! HEARSAY!
    Reality: Whistleblowers are allowed to submit hearsay, and hearsay is often admissible in court.
    Republicans: You can’t hold SECRET depositions!!! Cover up!! COVER UP!!!
    Reality: They’re not secret. 47 of you were allowed to attend all the depositions. Most chose not to. Why is that?
    Republicans: This is totally UNPRECEDENTED!!!!
    Reality: It’s standard procedure. You guys wrote and passed this rulexv .
    Republicans: Kangaroo court!!! Hold a vote!! HOLD A VOTE!!
    Reality: We’re holding a vote in two days.
    Republicans: We don’t need a vote! We need to know who the whistleblower is!!! We DEMAND TO KNOW!!!!
    Reality: The whistleblower’s identity is protected by law. Aren’t most of you lawyers?

  19. Americans will owe to this courageous colonel for his courage to stand up to tell the truth.

    • I keep having visions of Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men shouting at Trump and his cohort: “You can’t handle the truth!”

    Anyone outing a whistleblower is commiting a federal crime, period.
