  1. Donald Trump, you said let hear it from Bolton, so let’s do it or like your taxes, you are under audit and in this case we can’t hear from Bolton because you are being impeached. LOL

  2. If Trump wants these allegations to stick he has to prove it in a court of law, not pull executive privilege on twitter.

      There is only one way to solve the question of who’s telling the truth here. Bolton and Trump both need to testify in an open Impeachment hearing and let the world decide who they believe.

    • @Printagic Online I agree with them testifying. However, the world should not “officially weigh in” on our countries private matters.

      @Printagic Online under oath and hope to die. 😆

    Bolton went from one of trumps “best people” to a “never trumper” and part of the “swamp”……seems like trump has a problem in the hiring dept, he keeps putting himself in the middle of his “swamp”

    • @Antenna Wilde he doesn’t exercise poor judgement. He goes with the best information he has at the time and is willing to give people a chance that no one else would. Sometimes hires don’t go well and you have to fire people. Like a dog.

    • @gfunk6 You must have a degree from Trump University.

    • Matthew O’Reilly yup

    • @gfunk6 Well, we can’t have someone who runs the country as a 7-11 as president. Too risky.

      @Matthew O’Reilly once he gets on the stand what. Pompeo mulvaney and Bolton are first hand witnesses and Giuliani and nunes have been implicated by parmas you know the guy Trump doesn’t know. It’s amazing that republicans want the public to believe the most prolific liar in history. They wont.

  4. You can tell from all the thunder of “boiling eggs in a pot” from the White House and the Trump Administration that Bolton and his info is legit and damning fro the GOP.

    However, as a *true* republican, I say that Bolton deserves to be brought in on the stand to testify as his story is highly relevant to the case at hand.

    Bring him in!

    • very well said, all of you. we have to stop letting trumputin divide us, which is one of his main goals. too many people from all parties are falling for that one. we are Americans first, last, and always. we don’t have to agree with and join one another’s parties, but we do have to respect one another, and most importantly to stand up and protect America. United we stand, divided we fall – Lincoln. i will always honor my oath to protect and defend the Constitution, and i am fairly certain that you have all said the pledge to the flag at some time. one of my favorite sayings has always been that freedom isn’t free. this is the land of the free, because of the brave. and we need to be brave now. how? you don’t have to serve in the military, and certainly don’t start a civil war which is a trumpian talking point. just speak out, we must notify our congresspersons as to how we want them to vote at this trial, and to vote in the elections, to save our country.

      Over 70% of Americans want to hear testimony from more witnesses, and while I do think that number should be higher, evidence and witness testimony will always bring us closer to the truth. Anyone fighting against evidence and witnesses is fighting against the truth, plain and simple.

    • He gave trump his manuscript weeks ago, we’re getting played n Republicans think it’s win, win for them they call witness 1 and he gets aquitted

    • @Melting Snowman c’mon we already know the truth, Schift told it to us last week…

    • Charles L Jones | January 27, 2020 at 10:15 PM | Reply

      @Dana Nolan undefense team. That’s funny. It’s amazing how Adam Schiff predicted how they would try to defend Trump and knew exactly what they would say. I’ve got one for you Betsy devos secretary of miseducation.

  5. Bring on all of the documents and witnesses! America demands it!!

    • We, the people of the Senate, don’t need your opinion about the documents and witnesses. We, the people of the Senate, referred to as Republican Senators, we don’t want to hear the truth. The truth is fake. The truth is a hoax.

    • Everyone demands the truth, except Trump, he knows he would be jailed if the truth comes out.

    Could you imagine being a teacher at any school, and trying to teach anything to children with the same mindset as Trump supporters??? There is no cure for willful ignorance…

    • We’ve all been letting them get away with this for years.

      @Aphobias Polemos at what point do the conservative kids become stupid. Sure you’re a teacher. I have never heard of kids being conservative or liberal before they understand politics. And I bet none of those kids tell you their parents political views because most kids don’t give politics the time of day.

      Aphobias Polemos I’m a public school teacher as well. I deal with deplorable behavior daily, but it most definitely crosses party lines. It seems to be the new norm, and there are never consequences for students who lie, cheat, and disrespect authority.

    most non-criminals welcome any and all evidence to be sussed and presented. guess we know who the criminals truly are.

  8. Trump: I don’t even know Bolton or what he does. I guess I took some pictures with him but I don’t know him or what he does.

  9. Whats new about this? We have heard this same exact story from 4 other credible witnesses in the House. What does it matter? Our democracy is over. The Republicans have given the executive branch the right to break the law without consequences. The American experiment which always teetered on the hope that we all obeyed the rules broke down when trump decided to play outside the rules & his party let him. The GOP senators will clear him of all wrong doing for his perfect crime….I mean perfect call…..all this doesn’t matter. Truth doesn’t matter. facts don’t matter. All that matters is that there are more republican senators & they are all corrupt. Trump is a clown….but when a really smart evil guy gets in that office next….with the power these GOP senators just gave the executive branch….we’re in real trouble. These unlimited powers could be used for more than getting reelected & making money as trump has.

  10. *It never ends, does it, MAGAtrash?*
    *Traitor Trump is **_constantly and consistently_** in the center of filth, degradation, perversion, dishonor and failure.*

    Bolton gets his cofefe boy badge of honor .

  12. I’m so sick and tired of trumps lying and denying, he’s guilty of all the above. IMPEACH AND REMOVE THIS MOBSTER !!!!

    Here’s a thought, why spend time Republicans going around in the media to discredit John Bolton, when you have the power to discredit him under oath in this impeachment trial, just call him up as a witness,

  14. how did the country become the laughing stock to the world with a buffoon in office and his crimes sprees

  15. You can’t discredit when you have zero credibility. It’s a double negative. Anything the WH discredits GAINS CREDIBILITY.

  16. The replicans will have to pay a high price for lying to the the public and protecting a traitor and lier.

    • Yes, I tell ppl all the time real Conservative do not like what Trump is doing because it goes against everything the party is for. There’s no turning back, so let them have their small win ,but they will suffer in the long run.

  17. John Bolton? Never met him is that the guy with the big mustache maybe I took some pictures with him you’ll have to ask Rudy

  18. If I rob a bank and get caught, I’ll just issue a “strong denial”. That should be good enough to get ME acquitted.

    • That along with the prosecutor refusing to hear from witnesses and look at any evidence that would prove your guilt.
