  1. In the middle of the 2016 election, Trump’s son was invited to meet with a Russian national regarding “information that would incriminate Hillary and…would be very useful to” Donald TrumpThe Russian, Natalia Veselnitskaya, had ties to high-ranking Kremlin officials.Trump Jr. took the meeting. He said, “I love it,” when told Veselnitskaya may have had dirt on Clinton. Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner also attended.Federal law prohibits campaigns from soliciting anything of value from a foreign national.After journalists broke this story, Trump personally dictated a public statement on behalf of his son that lied about the intended purpose of the meeting.This relationship between the Trump team and the Russian national raises questions of whether the campaign aided a hostile foreign power’s active operation against the United States.

  2. Since 1969, Republican presidential administrations have 121 criminal indictments 89 convictions, while Democrats have had 3 and 1 respectively.

  3. Clown trump is a weak man's idea of a strong man, a poor man's idea of a rich man and a dumb man's idea of a smart man.

  4. They would rather face obstruction than actually testify….because the jail time for obstruction is less than the actual truth and/or perjury.

  5. Impeachment is not enough! tRump must be removed from office one way or another including the ballot. He must pay for his crimes & all his cronies should be imprisoned if found guilty. Health care, infrastructure, immigration, guns, better education are all secondary to me at this point in time in our politics. Either we imprison tRump or he will truly become a "Dictator."

  6. Pelosi acts scared of Trump😟why is she waiting, when she already knows to have the needed numbers to impeach. I think she is to old, and congress needs some new blood

  7. The Goof thought Schweizer's book was real! That was just media juice for the spin machine. Mr. Shoots from the hip sure stepped in his own snare. Someone should have told him it was fake news.

  8. Impeachment
    How a officer may be removed
    IncludingThe President,Vice President,and all civil officers(Goverement Officers) all officers of the executive and judicial branch but excludes members of congress,See 1.5.2)of the United States,she'll be removed from office,on Impeachment ( A formal charge or accusation of misconduct in public office,see1.2.5.)for,and Conviction( some crime or misconduct (See 1,3,6,-7,)Of,Treason( The crime of betraying ones own country by giving help to its enemies (See111.3.1) Bribery or other favour in exchanforunjust or illegal conduct in an office of trust)or other high crimes and Misdemeanors ( Such as violating the Constitution or abusing ones-power to harm or get personal gain),)).

  9. This thing, the floor vote, is what has been done in the past two impeachments, and with Nixon not closed meetings. BTW Schiff has an issue with alternative truth.

  10. They can stonewall old lady Palosi who acts as fast as she walks, but you can’t stonewall the Southern District and the FBI. Thank God for them

  11. GET OUT AND VOTE IN 2020!!!!!! Get rid of all these Republican criminals. Jordan,Mc Connell, Gaetz. Get rid of them all .

  12. It’s nice to see that some people with guts are looking out for what’s best for the Country. Republicans care about helping trump with the cover-up.


  14. Pig-losi an pig Schiff should resign after lying to the american people.
    Senator Grassley is Right about these Rats in our lovely country.
    Drain the Swamp people.

  15. Is there NOT ONE SINGLE PERSON in the GOP who is aware that they're turning the US into a banana republic? Or are they aware, and choose to go along for personal gain? I can't even say which is worse.

  16. Pelosi is waiting until they have overwhelming evidence accrued for an impeachment trial. Patience. Every rock overturned shows yet another crime by Trump and his gang of criminals. Impeachment charges/ articles will be brought! Then we will see if Moscow Mitch and the traitorous Republicans will vote on impeachment or go down in history as the corrupt treasonous scum that they are. Personally I don't believe that Congress will have a vote for impeachment. We will have to vote the criminals out! Then hopefully they will pay for their crimes.

    R. Giulianni- not elected.
    G. Sondland- not elected.

    They chose to leverage military assistance in EXCHANGE for a press conference in which Trump demanded the deliverable = a promise that Zelenski would SAY he is investigating Joe Biden.
    " Russia , if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,  I think you will probably be rewarded mightily
    ~ Donald Trump

    Ukraine needs assistance to defend against Russia / Putin .

  18. Maybe I'm nitpicking, but isn't a quid pro quo between unwilling parties always with corrupt intent?
    A quid pro quo without corrupt intent would be something like "hey neighbour, I see you're trimming your hedge. If you could trim my hedge as well, I will mow both our lawns." It's a proposal to do have your neighbour do something for you and you doing something in return, so both parties have to agree only if they're both willing.

    In this case though, there is obviously corrupt intent: "You'll get the promised money and weapons, but I need a favour though. You have to give me dirt on Biden." It's carefully brought as a "favour", but the word "but" makes it a condition with the implication: if you don't meet the condition, there will be consequences. In this case Trump demands a quid pro quo for something that was already agreed upon but now all of a sudden is dependant on a condition.

  19. Ari has finally came up with rap references beyond my generation.. hahaha.. I was never a fan of migos mumble rap style..

  20. The problem with all of this the democrats may conclude that Impeachment is proven by the evidence. But the Senate will block it.

  21. Shout out to Migos!! Bruh if Don Lemon said the same thing he'd be gone before the 10 second delay… for that we appreciate you more. Someone HAS to do it, how else would we get millennials to pay attention

  22. Please investigate the mfucker Pence. He is enabler to the criminal. Pence plays innocent when he is even worse than TOXIC TRUMP

  23. I hope these witnesses have protection because moron has scary cult members and friends. They are saving the democracy from a dictator.

  24. I think they (SDNY) is gonna squeeze Rudy and take away all his money and way to make money. Disbarred for the loss. Only a matter of time till he rolls over.

  25. Grab 'em by the quid Pro Quo. He may have weaseled out of a "Collusion" but a favor is a:
    /ˌkwid ˌprō ˈkwō/
    noun – a favor or advantage granted or expected in return for something. Google that, Grumpy Trumpy.🙄

  26. this is all just fluff. he has openly ordered people to ignore congressional subpoenas which is obstruction of justice. This is the part where Nixon got off the ride but he didn't have Gaetz, Jordan and grahm getting his back and lieing to their base in every way they can, these senators need to see a prison cell.

  27. Holy Cow, some true patriots testifying now, as required by supeana. Putting the constitution and country ahead of party. In fact, one of the commentator's mentioned that one individual had served a number of administrations and did not even know which party she affiliated with? How about that?

  28. Bush Junior should have been impeached for the Valerie Plame ordeal. Bush and Cheney got away with it and opened the door for even more corrupt individuals gaining power and thinking they have the right to do whatever they please to promote their own political agenda even if it includes blatant lying and scheming.

  29. Adam Schiff after we vote u out of office u are going to jail for being leakers u are the no 1 leakers in Washington

  30. Why can't we have a president like Brennen, that is
    articulate, learned, and on top of world affairs? How do we end up with'' not
    so bright beginners'' when we have people like Brennen and others who could run this county
    in a non-scandalous way, and kept America at least morally respectable? I will write him in on voting day!👌😁👍

  31. If 2018 had not given the Democrats control of congress , non of this would be happening. It needs to be a blue tsunami in 2020.

  32. Fake news MSNBC CNN Adam Schiff who leaked the 24 hours ago testimony to Washington post and media for sure Adam Schiff n Democrats are the one I hope trump wins 2020 u all we go to jail

  33. Well of course there all not going to cooperate because there All the ones in trouble lol. And they know it. Take a vote and see what the next excuse will be lol.

  34. No wonder the conservatives men don't like Feminist women , those women walk in with a bigger pair than any of the conservative men . All those conservative men frightened of 72 year old criminal. HAHAHA

  35. The very notion of t'rump claiming something is "un-Constitutional" just makes me laugh out loud.
    Now, if it were related to the McDonald's Dollar Menu, that would be a different story!


  36. Witnesses? Didn't The Transcript Released already?
    Didn't adam schiff have to lie in congress hearing to make a phoney impeachment inquiry?
    was it hunter biden took $1.5 billion from china? or Eric Trump took $1.5 billion from china?

  38. Thomas L. Friedman: It’s Not Trump vs. the Dems. It’s Trump vs. the Country’s True Defenders.

  39. Once Trump and these guy's get to prison, I give them a week to corner the market on crack head soup, cigarettes and drugs…..

  40. Trump = “Still caging children on the border while letting ISIS terrorists go free in Syria”… totally disgusting!

  41. Whistleblower's are gaining confidence to come forward. What a terrible thing that they are attacked and potentially outed and endangered. Just for doing their duty. They are heroes in the making.
