  1. Dr. Kupperman needs to be fined and jailed for not appearing.

    They should fine them when they don’t show up. See how fast they move when money is involved.

  3. Donny “Bedbugs” and his cultists clearly do not understand the meaning of “co-equal”

  4. Once again, behavior of the guilty!

  5. Nothing changes defiance like a nice pair of shiny handcuffs.

    And where’s their duty and respect for the people?!

      @Jeff Long House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Monday the House would vote on Thursday to formalize the procedures of the impeachment inquiry into Trump and Ukraine, in what will be the first time the House will go on the record on the proceedings.
      The vote signals a move into the next stage of the investigation following several weeks of closed-door depositions, as Democrats said the resolution would establish rules for public hearings, provide due process rights for the White House and allow information to be transferred to the committee that would ultimately consider the articles of impeachment.

    • @The Shadow of Truth Yes, I saw that too, it’s good, but I think they are finding more witnesses too.

      @Alex Hamilton. . . . Alexander Hamilton would have never resorted to such childish whataboutism. Imagine how much you could accomplish if you could think for yourself.

  7. Republicans only respect the rule of law when it’s in their favor.

    Schiff, telling it like it is.

  9. You know when normal people don’t show up after a subpoena, we go to jail. How is government above the law?

  10. The trump administration is the most corrupt administration in us history.

    • @Jimmy Phillips Boris, you forgot to use a conjunction in that comment. Still learning English? Can you say, “Putin sucks?”

    • ​@Jim McCarley Hey Igor, “Putin only screws white horses,” should be added to your list of popular American phrases.
      How long is your shift at the Internet Research Agency? Do you work 10 hours a day, 6 days a week? Do you get time-and-a-half for overtime? Free health care?

    • ever hear of the teapot affair study some history

  11. If I were subpoenaed, and I didn’t show, I’d be put in jail.

    Thank you Adam Schiff for speaking for the American people.

  13. They need to start locking all these guys up for contempt.

  14. Stonewalling is a demonstrable failed strategy. Re: Nixon

    • rationalguy desperate ppl don’t use logic most of the time

    • Not in this case, because most the laws have a 5 year statute of limitations (eg, Obstruction) and if trump gets back in he will be President and much much harder to indict him in that time, i it is even possible too

    • This demonrat scheme is a sad joke! This is one reason President Trump will be re-elected in 2020!

  15. meanwhile at a Trump rally:
    ✌🏼I’m not a crook✌🏼


  16. When Nixon tried to obstruct the investigation against him, THAT is when the tide turned against him.

  17. The white House is obstructing justice…this is historical.

  18. History will look badly on anyone who does not do their duty to the people

  19. Everyone corrupt needs to be held accountable for their actions.

  20. D.J.T. Slogan: “seeing how far the law will bend one day at a time.”
