  1. WOW! Trump and his sycophant coconspirators belong in prison; NOT IN THE WHITE HOUSE OR IN CONGRESS! People have died for this country and these entitled, greedy, power-thirsty republicans could care less! They are undeserving of the positions they hold! At this stage, I’m sick of watching democrats walk on eggshells to appease the rotten and disrespectful lowlives of the GOP! It’s time to call out republicans for what they truly are – CORRUPT TRAITORS! I wouldn’t be surprised if the rest of the money went into Trump’s bank account!

  2. Ya… I didn't think so… when ever Trump & Reps say 'all' it really means 'some' LOL … What else did we expect … straight shooters! 🤣

  3. Perhaps you might actually want to ask Ukraine. Their president said they did get it. And a Ukraine court convicted several Ukraines of interfering in the 2016 election for Clinton in 2019.

  4. They just got busted in tried to cover up but it's too late now to cover up they got caught with the hand in the cookie jar

  5. Trump still attempted a Quid Pro Quo. Just because it didn’t go through (because he got caught) doesn’t mean Trump’s not guilty. Can you imagine a person on trail for attempted murder using this exact same excuse?!
    Well, you call it attempted murder but the murder didn’t go through. So I did nothing wrong.
    Lame defense! Trump needs to GO!

  6. PROSECUTOR: You're being charged with kidnapping someone and holding them for 60 days.
    TRUMP: But they eventually did get their freedom; I eventually did let them go. Therefore, not a crime.
    PROSECUTOR: WTF ??

  7. There are multiple aid packages that go to Ukraine at various points….point? Other than moot….Dems in full panic mode

  8. Getting the money after attempting to blackmail them is no legal excuse. A bank robber cannot claim that there was no crime because he failed & got no money…

  9. trump is probably trying to figure out a way to get that $35 million into his own greedy paws.  

    The audacity of all of this is that he thinks we give too much money to other countries so he tries to curtail it. The thing is that it's not his money and it's not his decision to make. The money belongs to the people and we, the people, thru our elected representatives, have decided to spend a certain amount of OUR money to help Ukraine defend herself against an invader. The gaul he has to think he can do an end run around us (congress) is astounding and illegal. We have to always keep this in mind. He is not the boss of us. We are the boss of him. Now, what are we going to do about it? "Mr. President, YOU'RE FIRED!"

  10. Thets be real here he is litrally causing mass casualties for ukraine just to get some dirt on biden. Dont water it down. People are dying because he wants investigations done

  11. THAT'S MY HARD EARNED TAX$ IN THERE! I DEMAND TO KNOW WHERE MY $ IS🤨🤬😠! I DEMAND AN INVESTIGATION! That's where GIULIANI, Nunez & Barr IS getting paid to go all over the world to do so called investigation on Biden to spread lies with the PEOPLE'S TAX $S!😠🤬 IMPEACH/REMOVE TRUMP/ REPUBS TOO! THEY ALL MUST GO!

  12. Giuliani went to Ukraine to return 35 Million that he with Trump extorted (bribery fee) off the Top of the Military Aid Congress Appropriated.Extortion to get Aid Fee = 35 million to Trump pocket. Giuliani would be paid for his plan to reveal fake news and extortion. Fox News is behind the Scheme to tell Trump the news so he is Not actually involved. Like he was not at the Trump Tower Meeting with the Russians. What a tangled web they weave !! First to plot, then to deceive !!

  13. Trump & Republicans saying Ukraine President didn't say he felt pressure/pressured at any time! Here's why: He's certainly not going to say anything at all about feeling pressured …for being afraid if he did say something out loud… he may not get what he so desperately needed to save his people! dua! Why hasn't anyone said that yet!

    And… of course they kept part of the money! When Trump & Reps say 'all' of the 35 Billion they really mean 'some' LOL …what else would we expect🤣

  14. Yeah, the 14% Ukraine hasn’t received isn’t going to matter. A failed extortion plot will, especially when it’s noted that Rod Blagojevich is in prison for the same thing.

  15. Just the pompous audacity of the president in these dark deals is stunning. Evidence still being uncovered. What is on Lev's recordings might be the next shocker. There are almost certainly more damning things to pop up.

  16. lemme guess, if they can track it they'll find it went to 45's own coffers whether directly, or through his "allies" to whom he could distribute it to construct his 'border wall'.

  17. Ukraine began asking about the funding in April 2019.
    Only 86% of $400m was delivered by 30 Sep 2019.
    $31,400.000 still outstanding?

  18. I would love to be a passenger on the karma train when it arrives for trump and accomplices!

    Keeping quiet when you know something, so you don’t lose your job or go to prison, you’re just as guilty as the one who did the crime. Just like if you’re in a car with other ppl and those ppl go and commit murder you’re being charged as an accomplice to murder!!! So I say this. Charge them! Charge them ALL!!! From the very top to the very bottom!!!

  19. That $35MM may have already been used on other things already and can not be paid back, otherwise, why do not release all the money ?

  20. Donald Trump is hiding his taxes, hiding paper work, because, it's going to show that he, Guilliani, and, the Republikkkans, has stolen money. Watch. The money trail is there. Wait for it.

  21. Maybe he took the 14 % he held back for one of his crazy projects like the wall or maybe he'll use it to keep his partners in crime sweet such as bad rock russian crome. I thought he had paid Ukraine after he got found out buy the whistle blower . Quid pro quo still exists so what are they playing at is it to pay jim jordan his lying bonus or david nunes or ne body.

  22. If this was a witch hunt this is no less than trumps witch hunt of Obama when republicans lost that election to an non American according to liar trump

  23. The moment i heard this i was already thinking about trump and how he's doing deals ..Keeping 14% for himself as others can sell stuff with his brand on it,or he tells others about deals he can't make..So, when doing nothing himself,he get's 14%..Somewhere on a hidden account..In his way of thinking it's not a strange thing to let them withhold those 14% as they didn't pleased him with a favor..Now it's a question of finding out who told them to withhold those 35 Million..Seems important..

  24. Professor Jonathan Turley destroys impeachment narrative with calm, logic, sanity
    "Constitutional Law professor stuns Dems On Impeachment: It's YOUR Abuse of Power"

  25. Because of Putin’s meeting with them on Monday . Putin will give them a deal they can’t refuse , he will let them know trump works for him

  26. His weasel son in law took the $35 million. I hope someone is keep eye on Jared and dt s daughter? Their up to no good too.

  27. And with that, a clear violation of ICA.
    Very telling, since Nixon did nearly the same thing, and that act was enacted after Nixon to stop another president from doing it again.

  28. Cooper said in her testimony that $35 million didnt make it to Ukraine, which breaks congressional law, and no one has been talking about it. At least you finally figured it out.

  29. Republicans, "If you try to murder someone and you fail, it's not a crime!" [More evidence comes out…] "OK, they died, so what? Their car ran off a cliff going around a mountain bend but Trump only cut their front brake lines. Not the back ones." When are Republicans going to grow some balls and stand up for America, not this Russian shill Traitor Trotsky Trump. 🤦‍♂️

  30. 13 families and rump? 14 %, new number, up one from the money distribution by serial numbers.. wonder who that could be? Going down down baby rump!

  31. Who cares if they did or didn't get the money. AFTER THE WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINT. We know what corrupt Trump was doing. $35m was probably the pay off.

  32. So hypocritical of the republicans, so I guess this is the defense of all would be criminals, if the crime is not successful, you are not guilty, so, open up the jail cells, because all these would be criminals are Unjustified because the crimes were unsuccessful. Is this where we’re at now? Cognitive dissidents in government lolololol

  33. Criminal Trump MUST BE IMPEACHED FOR TWO SIMPLE REASONS
    1. Criminal Trump asked a Foreign Leader to get dirt on his political rival Joe Biden for HIS OWN CAMPAIGN.
    2. He bribed/extorted $391 million dollars that HAD TO BE RELEASED TO UKRAINE FOR MILITARY ASSISTANCE TO FIGHT AGAINST RUSSIA THAT WAS APPROVED BY CONGRESS (WHO HAS THE POWER OF THE PURSE IN THE US) AND A WHITE HOUSE VISIT BY THE PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE UNLESS THEY DID THE ACT OF GIVING CRIMINAL TRUMP THAT DIRT!!!!!

    THIS IS NOT COMPLICATED AMERICA AND IF YOU REALLY BELIEVE HE DID NOT ABUSE AND VIOLATE HIS OATH WHICH IS TO MAKE SURE THAT AIDE GOT RELEASED (EVEN WHEN THEY DID MEET THE CRITERIA TO RELEASE THE AIDE HAD BEEN MEET) THEN YOU ARE A TRAITOR OF THE US CONSTITUTION AND DESERVE TO GO WITH YOUR CRIMINAL LEADER!!!!

  34. Trump wants to keep Putin happy. That's why the Ukraine still hasn't gotten all the money. Trump is Putin's marionette, and the republicans in Congress are Trump's marionettes. How yucko. What Russia did in 2016 has led to a GOP that dances in step to Putin's drums.

  35. MINI ME PUTIN, WITH HELD 35 MILLION$$$$$$$ TO UKRAINE THAT WAS AGREED BY BOTH PARTIES HE WAS STILL HELPING RUSSIA, THAT'S IMPEACHABLE, THE COMPANY TO BUILD THE WALL, THAT NUMB NUTS PICKED MAY BE INVESTIGATED FOR TAX EVASION [ KICK-BACK GALORE]

  36. Republican logic: "The bank robber, who broke into the bank to take money, didn't do anything wrong. Because he was caught redhanded and aborted! He didn't take any money, so he's not a bank robber! Witchhunt!"

  37. Can imagine why Ukraine haven’t received 35 million…1.Trump is the most corrupt and cruel non-human on the planet 2. HE’S TRYING TO FIGURE HOW TO STEAL IT!!!!!!! 🙄 😒

  38. So if a bank robber gets caught right before he enters the bank gun up mask on but he trips and falls and the security guard stops him right before he enters everything is all good?

  39. I look at it this way, yah I walked out the store without paying for the merchandise but when the police were chasing me I got it back to the store before they caught me. So it's not really stealing is it?

  40. Wouldn’t it be worthwhile to say who the senator in the clip is? I’m glad some people in the comments have identified him.

  41. I am sure the 35 million went to pay Putin. Some of the money trump owed putin. Find out where that money is!!!! . I knew about this money several weeks ago. Good lord! U R just now covering this!!!!

  42. Okay the Republicans keep talking about Obama saying he gave them blankets and pillows. In truth if that's all the got it was because of Newt Gingrich withholding the funds preventing him from sending military weapons. Any time Obama tried to send financial support to anyone including Americans some Republican would withhold the funds. A prime example is when Duke Power North Carolina had that coal fly ash spill millions of tons into the river. The government can NOT send lawyers people from the EPA drug and food administration to do their job. Because Republicans were withholding the funds for them to do their job effectively.

  43. If the Senate don't impeach Trump our country and democracy is done!!! And us as Tax payers need to know what happened to our 35 million dollars that was supposed to go to Ukraine!!!!

  44. Surprise! Trump thinks this $35 million is his cut. Aannnd they got missiles they were told they can't use … lest poor Vladimir gets upset.

  45. Republicans keep saying they got the aid, there was no investigation, no this, no that, yada yada yada. The thing that seems to fly over a lot people's heads is that Trump asked period and that in and of itself is IMO the 'crime'!

  46. More FAKE NEWS. The OMB official who in PUBLIC TESTIMONY stated that this last bit of money WOULD get released to Ukraine under a different program. More Melber LIES.

  47. anyone that's watch even one episode of ANY crime show, knows blackmail is a crime. you don't have to have the acts committed. are these guys lawyers? well, someone has to be in the bottom 10% of every law class.

  48. PUBLIC Testimony stated that there was NO EFFECT on military procurement or deliveries to Ukraine by the 55 day hold on aid.
    When will FAKE NEWS worshippers wake up and do a tiny bit of research to uncover these CONSTANT LIES?

  49. Trump defense to any of this just constantly comes off as a child trying to make himself not look guilty and his actions just make him look even more guiltier. We have a meth head baby as the president.
