    Don’t forget, ladies and gentlemen. Roger Stone found guilty.

  2. Trump discussed extortion with Sondland on a cell phone in a restaurant in Ukraine. No president in American history is stupider than Trump.

    • @Wander Full Russia certainly is, but so is the UK,they must have
      a recording ,just sitting on it until they can use it to blackmail Shtrumpf.

    • @Eli Dicken ok Dicken that is really insightful. Now go do some coloring.

    • Thomas Brandt – if you have first hand knowledge about this matter, house republicans will be glad to hear you as a witness.
      If not: stop shouting bs into the internet and get a life.

    • Terry Kane Now he is claiming not to know Sondland. Every movie in the future that focuses on any part of the Trump administration will have to be preceded by the disclaimer (“This actually happened”).

    • Dude sondland literally said he only presumed everything lmao 😂

    Braking news: Dotard tRump committed extortion and bribery for his own personal gain.

      Breaking news: Trump fires Nunes, Jordan, Moscow Mitch, Lindsey Graham, Windmills, Mulvaney, the KFC delivery guy, the big mac delivery guy, the tanning guy in a meltdown fit right before a mental breakdown resulting in a tweet that says “Mommy!!!!”

      @crisostomo ybarra LOL, thank you too!!!

So help me God.[1] .

    They’re all a bunch of hoodlum

    • LaVerne Coleman Please dear stop insulting hoodlums..hoodlums are smarter

  6. Like Pelosi said, when it comes to Trump, all roads lead to Russia.  Practically everything Trump has done so far in his Presidency has benefited only two people, himself, and Putin. Withholding aid to Ukraine was solely for the benefit of himself and Russian forces. Traitor Trump is clearly an overt Russian asset,  and Mulvaney just wants us to get over it.  I’m pretty sure I won’t be getting over it.

    • That was really stupid you know that right ….

    • exactly. Wait until the eventual phone records with Putin come out….and they eventually will. Treason of the first order.

    • @Kevin Mcneil Well, it makes sense if you tie it to Trump’s ‘Moscow Project’.

    • Witness tampering is the act of attempting to alter or prevent the testimony of witnesses within criminal or civil proceedings. Laws regarding witness tampering also apply to proceedings before the U.S. Congress, executive departments, and administrative agencies.
      Dont forget mob boss thugs!

    • I can get over it, when orange is hanging from a rope about his traitorous neck….

  7. Trump’s number one reason for being in the White House is personal gain at any cost. If he destroys innocent lives he doesn’t care.

    • Kevin Willis the majority voted for Hillary and she still lost
      I hope this time the deplorables will realize that elected a respected president is much more difficult than watching a reality show on their satellite dish in their 12×35 mobile home as chain smoke while the baby’s daddyunclebrother is passed out in his wife beater tee, beer gut hanging out with his hands tucked into what is left of his underwear

      This President has brought jobs back but you don’t care about that. Many people does so Trump will win big time in 2020

    • Big Bear Hungry what career jobs did he bring back?
      Are the jobs he brought back paying $50-100k a year? No just min wage
      I’ve worked as a recruiter for a very long time and the so called jobs amount to nothing more than High school jobs.
      So tell me again what kind of jobs did he create (I use that term loosely) the only thing trump creates is debt

    • His attitude has not changed since his private business life-originally just being in the race was enough to make money but elected to White House was just an opportunity to make more global money on his Brand – much of which is made in China.

      I enjoy your brand of satire.

    ♫ If you like Subpoena Coladas….. and getting caught on Ukraine! ♫

  9. Can I put you on speaker phone Mr. President.

    I hope trump and all his criminal friends are sweating 😓😥 a little more each day, because the real patriots are coming forward to tell the truth. 🙏

  11. Stone guilty on ALL counts. Trump is going to die in prison, broke, and a broken man.

    • Good, that’s all he deserves and it’s to much for him. It should b a firing squad for treason!!

    • Unfortunately, trump won’t be impeached, and if he does step down which is a big if he won’t face any repercussions for his crimes. He might get a little hassle from New York but that’s about it. Just watch and see, he has a lot of other people protecting him, not just the senate. This is bigger than we think and people are afraid. There is a group of trump supporters who will burn this country down and they are not joking.

    • Oroborus Keep living in your orange man bad fantasy world.

    • True, unless he dismantles the Sanctuary Treason commands and deports them to Mexico.😠
      Oh, add the 20-million Illegal deportations.😉
      The GOP has been bent since Nixon – Grow a pair or die!🐮

  12. So Rudy is laying low, Trump tweets crap about a witness.. While she testifies.
    It’s Criminal behavior like This..that explains the reason why he’s being impeached!

  13. And the republicans think they can spin Trump into a Mount Rushmore worthy saint? Can’t wait to see Trump in his prison orange.

  14. Hollowed out from within: This is one of Trump’s most damaging legacies. As the president debases public service and undermines U.S. officials in front of allies and adversaries, skilled public servants are leaving their jobs and competent replacements are not to be found. It isn’t just Foggy Bottom; Trump has similarly vilified the Justice Department, the FBI and CIA, politicized the military and portrayed all civil servants as the enemy. In the process, he is disabling not a so-called deep state but the United States — at home and abroad — for years to come.

  15. Who in the GOP is going to wear the mantle this time, stand up and say to 45, ‘HAVE YOU NO DECENCY?’

  16. It is easy to subpoena Mr. Sondland’s phone records, and prove to whom he spoke 🤔

  17. The republican party will deal with any and all evil to gain its goals.

  18. Trump and his kids are gonna spend the rest of their lives in jail.

    Trump is a treasonous traitor to the American people! Its just that simple!

    • WILLIAM your right….TRUMP has betrayed everyone except his kids…

    • Yeah just look how bad our economy has gotten. I just heard a guy that was homeless tell me after 10 years of living under a bridge the government is finally helping our veterans. He is no longer homeless. This clearly proves Trump is a traitor to his people. I mean why else would he keep his promises. He is clearly out to destroy this country. I mean do we really want a better trade deal with China? They need that money to build empty cities and keep their people in poverty. I for one loved spending half of our national debt on a useless war in the Middle East. How dare he want to protect our borders. Does he not know , we love to give away our tax money. We should just put a wealth tax on the rich. Cause after all remember how well it went when we tried to tax them the last time. It’s best to drive away businesses. We should have more rich people keeping their money in off shore accounts. But this guy right here. Told that Ukrainian guy he would have more flexibility after the election. What does that even mean??

  20. How can any person in the US accept that Trump is fit to hold him office of the President of the United States?

    This is very sad. What are the values of the US?
