  1. Trumpsters are not in just the swamp, they are in quick sand now.

    They ALL knew about it…

  3. So clear, Trump held up military aide for a headline.

    • In a nutshell yes but not just a headline. Trump would have used it during the entire campaign to smear Biden and call him criminal Joe because the Ukraine is investigating him. Trump never cared about the Ukraine, any corruption there, or that Bidens son had a job.

    • @Gabe Dudley: That’s NOT what Sondland said! Why don’t tRUMP, Mulvaney, Guiliani, Pompeo, Pence, Barr, Bolton, Perry, etc. testify IF they have nothing to hide and have done nothing wrong? An honest person would be willing to testify to provide clarity, wouldn’t they? To prove one’s innocence?

    • @Jana Schwehm he said “trump asked for nothing. He said do the right thing and that’s it”. You can’t deny what he said just because the Nazi propaganda experiment refuses to show it. Why do you keep supporting it? Why do you remain in the control group? We all know Biden needs to be investigated. Imagine how you would be acting if it was Eric trumps bank records showing millions in transactions from the Ukraine. Let go of the bias and just think with some logic

  4. Mexico Federales just arrested Rudy crossing the border into Mexico illegally. He was wearing a poncho, Sombrero, dark shades, and a fake mustache, and riding a donkey.😂😄

    Bottom line: Sondland gave Dumbo $1,000,000 that has never been accounted for.

  6. Pompeo needs to resign and move back to Kansas. The wizard of odd is a dirty trickster.

    *Everyone:* “Yeah, Sondland took part in the quid pro quo”

    *Sondland:* “Oh, we’re just throwing people under the bus now are we? Two can play that game.”


  8. Not Sondland, but Republican’s questions opened suggestions that Javelins were negotiated with previous Ukrainian president as a bribe for Trump’s October 2020 surprise back in 2017. But the new Ukrainian president didn’t know that and had to be extorted into cooperation. And now this….

  9. I hope the Republican congresspeople get hammered by their constituents next recess.

    • @Moscow Mitch give it a rest@ Hillary was investigated and exonerated unlike trump who could not be exonerated by Mueller. Had his hands not been tied by the rules he may have very well been charged with criminal activity long before now.

    • @blob darkass From your lips to God’s ears.💙 💙 💙 💙 blue 2020!


    • @ma ta You arent someone who thinks things through are you? Do you know that trump BARELY won in 2016? He won the electoral vote by only 77,000 votes spread out over 3 states.We know now that 65% of woman disapprove of him,independants are fleeing him,His unwinable trade war made harley davidson close down factories,farmers all over the midwest have come out against him,he only has 8% of the african american vote, a dismal approval rating which is lower then it was when he was elected.etc. So how exactly is trump gonna win in a “landslide” When possibly millions of people who voted for him in 2016,will not vote for him in 2020? Think things through and check your facts before you speak.

    • @ma ta What has he done that makes him a crook?Bid words from such a small woman.

  10. A president who’s already said he’d take dirt on opponents from foreign actors, is trying to deny he was trying to get dirt on an opponent from a foreign actor. 😂

    • @Gabe Dudley lol, why are you getting triggered responding to every critic of Trumps. If you want the echo chamber, stick to your Fox News vids

    • @Nam Pham who says I’m triggered? Your ego? I am merely a voice of logic my friend. Embrace it or reject it and remain in control group A. There is always a choice. Free will

    • Trump famously told George Stephanopoulos that he would take dirt on a political rival from a foreign government on June 12, 2019. That is so close to the timeline of the scandal that he (Trump) might have already been actively engaged in his dirty deeds at that time! Guiliani was pushing Lutsenko’s conspiracy theories at least as early as May 1.

    • @LasVegasGames Of course he was, he was stacking the deck Vegas. 😉

    • ColoradoHiker7002 | November 21, 2019 at 2:07 PM | Reply

      Any politician from any party would take any dirt from any source. They are basically all the same animal.

    Donnie Bonespurs is going down and hopefully all the Trumpsuckers with him. Lock ’em all up!

  12. I’ll believe Sondland long before i would ever believe Pompeo.

    • @Gabe Dudley
      I believe anyone over 5x a day Pinnochio.🌼😅

    • @Gabe Dudley This isn’t Fox

    • Yea, maybe. I believe Sondland gave them away today because he fears they might throw him under the bus. I mean, I still wonder where he’s going. To tell all like he did. Something is up. Sondland was along for the ride until they got caught, you have to remember that. Now, that he could go to jail for lying he had to come clean. I don’t trust rich guy Sondland, no further than I can throw him. Nor Pompeo. There all rats.

    • @T …Sondland KNOWS they would throw him under the bus. He just got in first. He’s walking the line between loyalty and perjury, but the line is getting thinner. 🙂

  13. *Sondland: “Everyone. Was. In. The. Loop”*

    • @Gabe Dudley Yah! Right! No worries, the ship is sinking so fast than expected!!!:))) Another visit to the hospital is what the moron president need!!! Check his mental health!!!:)))

    • @Gabe Dudley it was confirmed that Russia interfered in the 2016 election. Confirmed that Trump commited campaign finance violations by paying off stormy Daniels. Nice try though?

    • Gabe Dudley “I’m not kicking you in the shin!” (*While he kicks me in the shin)

    • @Gabe Dudley Trumps crimes are hiding in plain sight.

    • @Perry Walton like creepy joes? Its obvious you dont care about curruption. Just orange man bad right? Maybe orange should be the new colors of the left. The cult that doest think about anything but orange man bad

    What is Trump holding over the heads of these people who can’t for the life of them get on the side of America and off the side of Trump?

    • Trump has their balls, spines, brains and what was left of their souls?!

      He just knows the names of all the underage hookers the Republican pedophiles in office frequent.

    • It could be that he cut taxes for the rich or that he paid them a bonus if they stick up for him 🤔

    • John Carpenter Russian collected dirt on all Republicans. Extort from within

    • John, I believe your question to be rhetorical, however, maybe all “these people” are simply crooked just like Trump, in heart, mind, and oh nope: not one has a soul. Not one of them is on anyone’s side but their own. Pompeo, Pence, Barr, Bolton. Cohen, Stone, Giuliani, Jordan, McConnell (and his wife, who now heads Department of Transportation, being an expert, because of the family business ) Etc, etc. on another note, my not so rhetorical question remains: Putin seems to be holding something over the head of our headless horseman, wonder how dangerous that is? Speaking of America’s side.

    • @Maureen Awty naw…Trump just knows where the GOP buried all their underage hookers.

  15. We need Perry to explain the contracts that his buddies got with the Ukrainian gas company

  16. Imagine? Everyone is lying except Trump, the pathological liar himself.

  17. Trump has gotten all his cronies in deep kim chi now.

  18. Somebody find Giuliani he’s needed in congress to answer questions.

  19. While everybody is consumed in the impeachment hearings, tRump is trying to shut the government down for the holidays!

  20. This testimony couldn’t have been clearer, everyone in this administration knew what Trump wanted, used his personal lawyer to convey his desire and everyone acted under that condition.
