  1. Sondland implicated everyone in the Trump Administration just shy of Melania.

  2. Sondland: “Everyone was in the loop.”
    Sondland came to the hearing with a convoy of buses. ” You get a bus, and you get a bus, and YOU…..yes you get a bus too!!!  You’re ALL getting a BUS!!!”😄

      @Hieronimus Bosch I am on Planet Earth, far, far way from Planet Libertardia.

    • @Mind Freshener really? He didn’t even want to attend???? You really are “Deplorable”

    • Mind Freshner “I need you to do us a favor though”…”talk to Rudy” …Trump made the demand on the call. It is in the partial read out of the call. Mulvaney admitted it to everyone in the press conference. Most of the people who testified were running around trying to get the Ukrainian President to do what Trump wanted. Emails and text messages back it up. He only said no quid quo pro after he got caught.

    • Mind Freshener I went to the link you posted. I looked up the claim in it. It is a false news story from a false news network. Please do your research. One America News is a far alt right propaganda network. Politifact already fact checked the Barisma claim. It is false. The Ukrainian Prosecutor announced a review of previous cases but that they are not currently doing any investigations. So everything in the video is a lie. Sigh

  3. Cohen warned EVERYONE that this would happen.

  4. This all makes sense now. Trump wasn’t looking for dirt which he knew didn’t exist.

    • Just like Hillary’s emails and Pres Obama’s birth certificate. Lies, lies and more lies.

      Nope, course not, all trump does is smear his rivals and dupes the democrats with lesser intellects, that’s how he won the election. Everyone has always known trump was an utter piece of trash, he’s just been able to trick the proles into thinking his rivals are almost as bad

    • Right. Just looking for slander.

    • It’s like those people that were at a meeting that didn’t happen.

  5. This is why the Trump Crime Family needs to be prosecuted under the RICO Act.

    • R.I.C.O is what I’ve been looking forward to ever since Mueller farmed out “other files ” to the southern district ,well over a year ago

      @yhwhzson – He can do too much damage in the next year to wait for election. He’s gotta go – yesterday! But it’ll still be months unless something else comes into play.

    • Lol You don’t have a clue what you are talking about. Adam Shift and Nancy Pelosi are the true Crime Family. Conspiring from day one to take down the President in any way possible (Truth optional). And now for the sad part. You obviously believe everything you hear on MSNBC and have become a good puppet spouting slander about our President. Do yourself a favor do a little research on your own..Listen to FOX and MSNBC then form your opinions. And then tell the world what you think. Its a free country. Right now you are just repeating the CEO of CNN or MSNBCs personal comments that you heard on one of their broadcasts. By the way their is a lot of internal strife among their Journalists because some of them consider what they have been told to do Yellow Journalism. YouTube is a great place to do your own research. They have videos from both sides of any story. Then the next you blog something you wont be a FAKE NEWS puppet and could be taken seriously.

    • billy jack – Yeah, you don’t know what a family is, a blog is or, apparently, your butt from a hole in the ground. We should listen to your fox news brainwashed nonsense.

  6. There’s absolutely no way Trump tried to interfere in Ukraine without the instruction from Putin. Withholding military aid, exposing Ukraine for more corruption, trapping Zelensky into a public commitment of investigating a conspiracy theory and labelling him as weak all favour Putin.

  7. Re: Trump didn’t care about an investigation, he only wanted an announcement and a news story for FOX and Breitbart to work to death.

    This isn’t just a Trump Modus Operandi, but a familiar tactic employed by the Republican party long before he came along.

    Does anyone believe that they sincerely expected to convict Hillary Clinton over Benghazi or her e-mails? No, of course not.
    They spent $millions of taxpayers’ money investigating something that they knew would be a dead end, just to throw a story to Sean Hannity and his disgusting ilk.

    • Excellent observation. The right wing uses inuendo because their viewers are emotional little crybabies who only want their biases confirmed and don’t care if it’s all lies and without substance.

      And the American sheeple fall for it EVERY TIME. If it didn’t work, Republicans wouldn’t do it.

    No, a quid pro quo is a fair trade. This was Bribery, Extortion and worse: they all conspired to *force a Foreign Power to attack the United States* thru the Presidential Election – that is either Treason or Sedition. Impeach, Remove, Prosecute, Imprison.

      No doubt that some Red Hat will be delusional ,under the power of The Trumpov spell,and defend this,too.
      Yep.They walk among us.

      @Chris Yeh He definitely IS being Extorted by Putin, no doubt about it. It started as a “business deal,” but he had no f’ing idea who Putin actually is. Remember Helsinki? He came out like they had put the screws to him, maybe they threatened his daughterwife Ivanka or maybe the pee-pee tape was enough. It wouldn’t take much to extort a wimpy marshmallow like him- he should have resigned right then for health reasons. But Putin is smart enough to have covered that contingency too. Trump IS a Treasonous Traitor to the United States.

      @stephen glover 😥😥😥 Oh poor sad Trumplikkkan Troll, so sorry that your “Precious” is a lying, Treasonous Traitor to the United States, but that’s not my fault. YOU need to either watch ALL of the hearings or tell your boss Putin that he’s not paying you enough to Troll for an evil Traitor.

      @stephen glover If that comment was not so laughably stupid it would be boring…

    • what he said

  9. White House is officially now a Red House and a crime Scene.

  10. No pardons, this time! For the good of the country, THIS president must go to prison: for a long, long time.

  11. What’s really sad is knowing low the Republican Party is willing to sink.

    • The DNC is -$7 million in debt. Meanwhile…the RNC has brought in nearly $20 million from small donors alone…just since last Thursday’s “impeachment hearings”. In addition to those gifts, brought to us by the Dummycrats…an anti-impeachment movement called “Stop The Madness” has brought in 75.000 unpaid volunteers. 
      Couple all of this with the current array of freaks running for the Dummycrat presidential nomination…and the public open displays of leftist loonies…and the lame stream Pravda Fake News…and one starts to believe in “A Gift(s) From God”. (…and, I’m an agnostic!)

      It really and truly is.. I was a John Kasich Supporter before Trump got the Nomination, and I seriously no longer even recognize the GOP .. Watching Jim Jordan and several other GOP Members verbally Attack Non Partisan Witnesses..who did not ask to be involved in this Sideshow..Decent People who have dedicated their Careers to the Service of Our Country leaves a feeling of uncleanliness ..their behavior is 180 Degrees from “Making America Great Again”

    • Hieronimus Bosch | November 22, 2019 at 2:30 AM | Reply

      @Kathleen Martin That is a very measured, intelligent and significative comment. Thank you for laying things out so clearly in the muddiest-ever circumstances in any advanced democracy.

    • ​@Ed Dursky Your need to put forth lies and belittle others shows just how low the Republican party has sunk. See how I did that, I called them Republicans not some disrespectful belittling like you and your head in the sand like an ostrich party. They are called Democrats show some respect. They are doing a tough but necessary job that they really do not want to have to do. We can discuss debate and disagree without acting like animals.
      Wake up Trump is destroying our credibility around the world and making a farce out of the rule of law which a Democracy can not survive without. I used to support the Republicans (in the 80s) until every time they lost the house, senate and WH they blamed it on not being harsh enough, not taking more away from those with the least. Instead of realizing the true error of their ways. They work for “US” the American people not big money and corporations.

      I am not a Democrat nor am I a Republican or Independent or any of the other party’s out there. I do not base my beliefs on party dogma. I look at the issues see how it will affect those least able to speak for themselves not the rich and powerful. It is called critical thinking using your head and making smart decisions based on facts not conspiracy theory’s lies or misplaced loyalty for power mongers. I vote for positions based on whether I think they will make this a better country for all not for a few.
      I fear for the future of this country, not for me. I am a 56 year old man who is homeless in Seattle, I understand being forgotten and despised just for who I am like you never will. I know no one cares if I live or die. I fear for our children’s future and our children’s children’s future.
      It is fine if you believe in what you feel is right but it is not ok to belittle others for what they believe in nor help propagate conspiracy theory’s that have no basis in reality and are just being promoted by people who fear they can not force others to do what they want unless they lie.
      I am saddened that so many including you have closed your minds to truth and respectability.

      Please wake up before you live in a country where you do not have the right to speak up. Germany and the world learned this harsh lesson and it seems the phrase (those that forget history are doomed to repeat) it are more true than people understand.
      I know this will fall on a closed mind with def ears but I hope that you realize before it is to late just how much is at stake right now.

  12. Destroying Earth. Making money and making Russia, China and the Saudi great again.

  13. I am tired of Resident Trump pretending he cares about anything a President should.

    The outlaw “president” and his administration of outlaws are on the run from a reckoning from which they cannot escape.

    • @Doak 1948 Americans

    Trump’s anti-corruption campaign working…on himself!

  17. “No corruption in Ukraine.” No, all the corruption was coming from the USA!!!

  18. “The original concept of fake news was called “disinformation,” an invention of Joseph Stalin, who coined the term. Some writings from the time indicated that the Soviets in many cases considered disinformation to be a higher intelligence priority then actual intelligence collection.” Trump is clearly making fake news, while calling real news fake.
