  1. Exposed: Donald Trump was behind the failed House Republican SCIF coup. Trump ordered the blocking of witnesses testimony. The GOP did as ordered.

      Make no mistake, it’s only going to get worse and more desperate the closer we get to 2020. Trump is a rat, but expect him to fight like a cornered right to survive.

    • Do note, though, that only 25 or so were willing to be seen creating mayhem on camera. That means there were more than 170 who would not, not even for Trump’s approval.

    • @Jim McLoughlin …Agreed.

    • @KesselRunner606
      we are basically in the election.
      Why not let the people decide?
      (takes a look at the democrat field)
      Oh, now I know why

  2. GOP trying To Keep the putin/trump Money Train Going .

  3. Rep. Rooney, I know you’re retiring. And you appear to be an objective and level headed man, please please be a louder voice and try to appeal a sense of reason to the GOPs who have lost their way.

    • @nat turnerlearner Check out chris h’s home page. Specifically his playlist. Most of them are blocked in the US. He’s European and from the music type, a kid as well. He’s trolling EVERY comment.

      Chris H Soooo, out trolling again,…..

    • His voice means nothing next to Putin’s rubles.

    • @Chris H
      Bring out the gallows all over the country. We are hunting Deplorable, from the fish’s smelly head and down :)))
      These ignorant racist treasonous descendants of the Confederacy are NO LONGER part of America. Let us gather them ALL in 1 or 2 of their backward states and build a tall wall around them to safeguard humanity from these viruses. I’ve heard they love tall walls, lol. SOON!!!

    • @Larry Byrd Good research Larry! The trolls continue– they need to be ignored and starved out.

  4. Boy, is it ever refreshing to hear a Republican speak the truth! KUDOS !

    • He’s only doing it because he’s retiring. Do you actually think he would be speaking out if he was up for reelection?

    • Shoichleach74 Callum | October 23, 2019 at 10:08 PM | Reply

      yes it is. If only we can hear this from a Republican that is not retiring. Not holding my breath

    • @Quy Le Yeah, I know…’s sad. (Imagine giving a lie detector test to each & every Republican who is not yet resigning from office?)

    What happened today showed the entire world that the Republican party will stoop to any deplorable tactic because they now realise that supporting a corrupt and mentally unstable fraudulently elected non President is not a wise decision. I hope that arrest warrants will be issued.

    • Most if not all of the clowns that scuffled into the room today are paid by Putin. They are desperate to get this whole thing shut down because many of them will go to prison before this is over.

    • Varekai Ascendant | October 24, 2019 at 7:08 AM | Reply

      @Hazzycakes It makes you truly wonder about what gray matter is between their ears, if I were in a Losing position where my boss was under constant suspicion and investigation I’d be looking for a new job the minute the rumors started. What is keeping these people loyal?! Is it the money? Are they all accepting kickbacks? What does Trump have on them? What is mentally wrong with them that they would willingly commit Obstruction with their actions? Soooo many unanswered questions.

    • And whose fault is it? Weak Democrats with no backbone. They keep defying supboeans, Democrats do nothing. They lie and purge themselves. Democrats do nothing. They are cowards

  6. Now we hv it from one of the GOP congressmen, they are trying their damnest to dismantle the affordable care act.

  7. It’s funny how Republicans suddenly start growing a conscience once they’re not running for re-election.

    • Is Romney quitting? He has certainly been vocal, but I haven’t heard anything about his desire to leave. Is he the only one that is critical of president, yet wants to continue at his job?
      (Gotta give credit when due)

    • @Garacha222 he is safe, got into the senate in january. 6 year term.

    • An interesting and accurate observation of today’s Politicians.

    • @Todd Adams when Dems do bad things, we don’t cover up, we get the facts then push them out of the party. Yeah, there’s corruption in both sides, but it’s dealt with differently. Republicans will attempt to cover things up, distract and lie to deal with it. The Democrats will investigate and then force them to resign. Just look back over the last 5 years, 9 Dems have resigned for misconduct.

  8. Somehow all of those hypocricans sound sane when they retire and leaving office while the rest of them remain loyal to Traitor in chief Don the Con.
    I don’t believe him. I don’t believe any of them.

    • Because the majority of them are sickos. They don’t care about the American people, they care about corporations and legal bribes. That’s all that matters to them. It’s the racist, white nationalist, corruption party. Not saying all republicans are white, because they have swindled quite a few people into believing in their scam, including people of color.

    • hey man dont be a Republican. Its easy to be patisan and hate “the other side” tats wat most Reps do now. dont be like that. dude at least stood up for his morals. u want to be mad be mad at the voters. these guys just do what they think those folks want. personally its cool he broke with em. if u crucify every Rep who says this all is wrong then why would they ever want to cross over that line? This is about the soul of america there is no winnning this there is only us dealing with this. the job now is to educate folks and talk about what actually happened. If u go out and try to crucify folks(outside of bad comments on FoxNews cause they totally deserve it ) all we are gonna do is validate fears. they are totally hypocrites sure but unless u shoot em ur gonna have to talk to em. this dude came from a district Reps won by 13% like all he had to do was shutup and he would have power. Props to him for not taking the easy route.

    • @chad moore I do agree with all you say man. But I can’t help but think where was he 3 years ago? when Trump lawlessly fired James Comey? When all of this nightmare of a presidency started? and all the horrors that happened since? he kept his power and stood silent,also talking about the insanity that goes on Trump TV,Reading some of these hateful things makes me sick,and leave me with doubts that the gap cannot be closed,that the tear is just too wide at this point. It just all seems so helpless when you think about it and when you hear the disturbing facts of these times.
      I will leave you with this,though,wether I believe him or not,it is better to have him speak his mind than not. And hopfully more will speak out,beginning an avalanche that will end with this con-man being removed from office.
      Have a nice day ✌️

    Some of the Republicans behavior make me violently ill .

    • Their behavior is akin to watching the Jerry Springer show!

    • They really have lost whatever sense of decency they might have once had. It’s amazing how devoted Republicans are to a completely corrupt and incompetent “leader” like Trump. They are a cult.

  10. The facts lead to one thing , Trump’s absolute guilt.

    “…it’s really important to get all the facts…”
    /in his head: “As long as they’re the ones we want.”

  12. Yes you are cut out for this.
    You took an oath to the Constitution.
    Do your job.
    Impeach this vile orange stain on our country.
    Man up

    • Darth Vestius *preach*

    • He certainly doesn’t have a strong memory from year one when the first thing DJT did to prove he was enamored with Russia was to get chummy with Russians in our Oval Office while they laughed about DJT dropping the sanctions on their country. Repubs appear to be deaf, dumb and blind to reality from the beginning, whether they are running again or not.

  13. If you’re not cut put for this, then why even take the job in the first place?

    Do your job, Rooney and protect the Constitution and the US until the last!

  14. He was doing ok up until the last 2 minutes.

    • Yep, Chris caught him BS’ ing his way there at the end. Showed his true colors and Trump castration effect.

  15. It’s only when they are about to retire that the facts suddenly become important to them

    • lets be honest they are all politicians. they are snakes. their entire purpose is to be snakes. The constitution wanted leaders to be at the call of the electorate. thats why they have elections so frequently for the house. they lie sure but if they dont hold up (enough ) of their promises then they are gone very shortly after. Dems are no better in that regard they just serve an electorate that the whole u believe in Jesus so ur right about everything line wont work on. They have to run on actual issues instead of religious branding actual issues can be measured so they have to stick closer to reality if only because of necessity . I suggest u readJon Meachen’s Impeachment. Its stellar and really puts into view what the framers intended. honestly just really good history if nothing else.

    • mhsidibe1 If you listen to what he says toward the end of his blabbering and whining, you’ll see that he is just another brainwashed brain dead right wing criminal.

    Let me preface my following comment with the following – I am an Independent from the state of Florida.

    If these commentd are in direct reference to Mr. Rooney, you might want to do your research on his record. He is NOT one of the placating Republicans that are often the examples of just what is wrong with our democratic government.

    Though I have not agreed with all of his votes on bills one thing I am confident of – this man has represented his constituency with honor and integrity. He is not a “card carrying Trumper” by any means.

    • Austin O'Brien | October 24, 2019 at 1:38 AM | Reply

      Oh please Rooney led the call to “purge the FBI” and was a W and Romney SuperPAC’er he can’t wash his hands clean.

      Nevermind his Laredo Petroleum flat robbed land owners in Oklahoma.

      We really need to expect more from our reps then this bag of garbage. A few sane words while on your way out doesn’t change your record.

    • Kaleb Thomas Clare … Well done.
      Facts, first hand knowledge, loyalty.
      Thank you.

  17. The children and grandchildren of the members who stormed the hearing in an attempt to obstruct the constitutional process, lieing about House Republicans not being allowed to cross examine witnesses or see the evidence, endangering national security bringing mobiles into a secured facility.
    Why was this exact same process okay in the Benghazi investigation but now no longer OK.? Because they are traitors loyal to Trump and not the constitution, democratic norms and rule of law and the office of the President.

  18. Mr. Rooney seems like he’s finally had enough..

  19. This guy had SOME credibility right up to 5:27 in the video.. After that point, he reveals that he has Z E R O integrity.

  20. Im just curious to see how many Republicans are reelected to office after this.
