  1. If Trump sent his lawyers to the next round of hearings, it would legitimize the process, in the president's mind. It will never happen.

  2. It's all but guaranteed the Donald Trump Will come up with some excuse NOT to appear. I predict another midnight run to the Hospital in the wee hours for some undisclosed medical issue the day of the hearing.
    If Donald shows to testify HE will be the JUDGE, JURY AND EXECUTIONER FOR HIMSELF.

  3. The coward will never defend himself, the true sign of a WEAK man … probably doesn’t even know how to make a fist 👊🏻

  4. If he's innocent as he says … He should be there. I know I would – if I didn't have anything to hide. COWARD ! He knows he's backed up into a corner. Let's get the FAKE PRESIDENT & the entire Administration out by Christmas. MERRY SCHIFFMAS 🎄 & HAPPY BLUE YEAR !! 🔵👍

  5. the republicans wants their people to be heard….of course we understand that after 23 hearings they still haven't found what Hillary has done wrong, they want her again on the trial…and the other Clinton too. And the father of Obama and his mother too and the Mexican president and the death brother of Kim; the owner of the twitter account Devin Nunes' Cow. Saddam Hussein & Osama bin Laden the Turkeys that have survived last year and Santa Claus.

    A special request from Lindsey Graham, he wants to impeach his former version. Moskou Mitch just wants money

  6. Look I'm going to tell you this if you let this President off the hook every other president that comes after him will do the most heinous things possible to America and its people. Mark my words.

  7. If he were to actually testify his lies would give them one more impeachable offense. He'll never do it. Swear under oath? You gotta be kidding.

  8. Anyone in the Senate who does not vote guilty is a traitor to the Constitution and will be remembered when they're next up for election.

  9. Can't beat Trump in an election and sure aren't going to beat him on the far left communist kangaroo court set up. Big Daddy D.Trump 2020 icon best president our country has had in the 50 years God bless he has done more positive For America than all the Democrats combined and that is a FACT. Go Trump 2020 and beyond.

  10. LMAO😂😂😂🤪 Senator Kennedy is a doofus!!! What fckn so-called proven record is he going on about?!?!? Cuz the Biden bs is DEFINITELY NOT—and that's the only example i can think of where trump has been involved fighting any corruption–ANYWHERE!!!! Laughing in Canada.

  11. Barring a crisis of conscience on the part of Republican Senators, I think we can safely predict that Trump will most certainly not be removed from office. I get no pleasure or comfort by acknowledging that reality. However, I agree that this president has to be reined in and the only remedy for that is to impeach him. Subsequent to the impeachment proceedings we Americans will learn – by how we vote – just how far off the rails the electorate in our country has actually gone. This month’s edition of The Atlantic magazine explores these issues in detail.

  12. Power grabbing dems dont care about joe Biden quidproquo…or Hillary's e mails..the dems r totally deep state as is this media…u.r..tools of the cia.

  13. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but when and where is the defense allowed to call witnesses for an indictment? Really, I thought that was just the prosecution. I thought the defense was heard from at trial and not before then. Has it always been like that and defense lawyer just don't take advantage of the opportunity? So confusing.

  14. The Founding Fathers understanding of bribery was derived from English law, under which bribery was understood as an officeholder’s abuse of the power of an office to obtain a private benefit rather than for the public interest. This definition not only encompasses Trump’s conduct—it practically defines it.

    The Founders placed articles of impeachment in the Constitution for the purpose of protecting our democracy. A democracy that Trump clearly has no respect for, and is trying to tear apart.

    Article II, Section 4, says the president “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

    “You don’t even have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job in this constitutional republic. Because if this body [Congress] determines that your conduct as a public official is clearly out of bounds in your role . . . because impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and integrity to the office.”
    — Lindsey "Two Faced" Graham Jan 23, 1999

    “I think he’s a kook, I think he’s crazy. I think he’s unfit for office."
    –Lindsey "Two Faced" Graham on Trump,  Feb, 2016

    "Here’s what you’re buying: He’s a race-baiting, xenophobic religious bigot. He doesn’t represent my party. He doesn’t represent the values that the men and women who wear the uniform are fighting for. And you know how you make America great again, by telling Donald Trump to go to he//."
    –Lindsey "Two Faced" Graham on Trump, Dec 8, 2015

    “We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” 
    ― Abraham Lincoln

  15. Trump said he would love to talk to Robert Mueller's investigators, then only gave partial answers in writing..
    Said he would testify for congress in person, later he said in writing..
    Said he would release his Tax returns, now it's going to the USSC..
    How many times does he have to lie before nothing he says is to be believed?

  16. Trump believes his own lies that Ukraine meddled in our 2016 elections, and not Russia. But here's where it gets tricky. Deep down, Trump realizes that his wild Ukrainian conspiracy isn't true, but the truth has never meant anything to Trump. The lie has always benefited Trump more than the truth, therefore the lie carries more weight with him. Trump can't defend himself unless he believes what he's saying.

    He believes his own lies not because he actually thinks there's any truth to them, he believes his own lies because he knows he needs to be believe them. He believes his own lies out of necessity. In order for Trump to successfully gaslight his followers, he must first successfully gaslight himself.

    "Lying is second nature to him. More than anyone else I have ever met. Trump has the ability to convince himself that whatever he is saying at any given moment is true, or sort of true, or at least ought to be true."
    –Tony Schwartz, the ghost writer for Trump's book "The Art of the Deal":

  17. If Trump is such an anti-corruption fighter, why isn't he fighting corruption in Turkey, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Israel, or No Korea?? Why just Ukraine? And if Ukraine is sooo corrupt, why did he just name Biden? Why didn't he named anyone else? Even now why doesn't he or the GOP name someone else? If he's so anti-corruption, what's his story for Trump University??? Why won't he release his tax returns? or let Mulvaney, Bolton, Rick Perry, Pompeo, or McGahn testify??

  18. Trump is my president, he represents me. He should go into the impeachment hearings, confident and cool-headed, tell the innocent truth, provide the supporting documents, and straighten this all out to my satisfaction. When he was elected, he didn't say the Liberals were going to be such a big hindrance to him. He seems to be endlessly stuck on his Liberal excuses and unable to go beyond them. He needs to get everybody working together so we can move forward and accomplish great things as a unified nation should. Unless he's guilty, of course…..

  19. Başkan Trumpa ve halkınıza Kürdistan da Kürtleri desteklemelerinden dolayı minnettarız daha güçlü destek vermeniz sizin ülkenizi de güçlendirecektir

  20. 🤓🤓🤓🤓News flash! Trump has the senate on " lock"! These impeachment inquiries are like a cleaned up version of "Caligula". The United States is like a great ship with broken "rutters," no qualified repair people on board, only acting flunkies.😔😔😔😔

  21. Bring it on…he'll tie himself up in so many knots it will be a spectacle beyond his reality tv potus act. The man will out perform Captain Queeg in the Caine Mutiny …"Ahh, but the strawberries, that's where I had them"…or…. Jack Nicholson in a Few Good Men….."You Can't handle the truth"…..If he had to read lines, like you have witnessed, he'll still fuc- up….He does not get it…sees himself above y'all…Come on Down Donnie.

  22. How can Trump be the most valuable witness? If he isn't lying the deluded man is spewing out conspiracy theories. Evidently he acutely believes them. Even after the IG report debunks his paranoid of lie of Obama wire-tapping him, he'll still believe it. Trump's personality is ossified, it's frozen and no longer has the elasticity to change when new facts come along.

  23. AT A TIME OF NEED, THE GOOD LORD SENT US MR. TRUMP AND HIS FAMILY TO SAVE AMERICA. THE AMERICAN FAMILY STANDS WITH OUR PRESIDENT. A VOTE FOR IMPEACHMENT WILL BE A VOTE OF TREASON. YOU AND YOUR FAMILY WILL BE LABELED ‘TRAITORS’. YOUR FAMILY TREE WILL CARRY THE TRAITOR NAME FOR EVER. YOU WILL NOT SERVE ANOTHER TERM, YOU WEILL LEAVE IN SHAME. MR. TRUMP IS AMERICA'S PRESIDENT, HE WILL SERVE ANOTHER TERM, AND YOU WEILL LOSE THE HOUSE.

  24. Someone needs to tell trump he is suppose to be working for America not himself. What has he done for America other than try and destroy it.

  25. Aren't you so tired of hearing about these people whining 😂😉🤫 people I'm talkin about REPUBLICAN PARTY 💯 Mitch McConnell has held up the government for 11 years. UNWILLING to work with OBAMA. Waited a WHOLE YEAR and didn't consider judge Garland, for the supreme Court. MITCH MCCONNELL is even worse, OR EQUAL TO TRUMP 💯 TRUE

  26. You folks are so transparent in your attempt to overthrow our government and President Trump. You realize Trump supporters own guns and practice regularly. Lock and Load America as its NOW THE TIME FOR ALL GOOD MEN AND WOMEN TO COME TO THE AID OF THEIR COUNTRY AND TO PRESERVE OUR FREEDOM. SOCIALISM DIES IN 2020 AND ALSO AROUND THE WORLD AS SEEN.

  27. ABC needs to fired their makeup artist. Congress looks TOO FAKE. They look like live moving wax mannequin. Klobuchar OMG…😱😱

  28. Trump has no defense. It's obvious listening to the republicans deflect and make up lies left and right. Don't they realize they look like idiots to the country? American voters want the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Save your BS talking points for your campaigns. This is serious stuff and we expect our reps to treat it that way. If the pres is guilty of the crime, you need to impeach him. If it is a crime, you must convict him. Otherwise, you are are saying whatever party is in control is above the law and the consititution does not matter. And for that you will get elected out of office. No one is above the law!!!

  29. Do you want to have this bullshit decoded for you? Let me explain. Article II section 4 is both simple and vague. "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors." The framers of the Constitution all agreed that the president should be removed from office if he committed treason, bribery, or other "high crimes," but most of them also believed that the president might be removed if he were found culpable of "malfeasance of office" (a term used in an early draft of the Constitution). On the other hand, it would be improper for Congress to simply remove a president because a majority of Congress "might" disagree with him (as is here?), and since "malfeasance" was a term with a meaning that might vary in the eye of the beholder, they substituted the term "Misdemeanors" for "malfeasance", which may or may not be better. Nevertheless, It is a term that has left everyone annoyed and dissatisfied, and it has caused considerable confusion in those rare cases (during the presidencies of Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, . . . Bill Clinton) in which this BS has been initiated… So snap.

  30. Why would he this whole thing is a joke😏 More nonsense for the TDS sufferers to get excited about. This is what happens when you let the fake news do ur thinking for you

  31. FARTGATE, a waste of our time so a bunch of clowns can make themselves look even stupider than they are. Quit wasting taxpayers money on stupid investigations and do what you were elected to do or resign.

  32. I really do hope that after this is all said and done that every single member of the House of Representatives involved in this is brought up on charges and themselves impeached and removed from office.

  33. Impeachable conduct? What are the charges?
    All I hear is impeachment, impeachment over and over. It's like the russian collusion delusion thing. I wonder what tune they'll play when the president is on his second term?

  34. Don't worry Teflon Don. McDonnell's Mafia has your back.

    Apparently our Constitution is ill equipped for this depth of corruption. I don't think our forefathers could have forseen the entire executive branch in a conspiracy, a political party being a Cult, and a Media Conglomerate to back his every move with Propaganda.

    The United States of America is in big trouble.

  35. Democrats impeachment is DOA before the first hearing. America has replayed every investigation witnesses testimony before Turkey diner to be prepared for the diner debate. After everyone's review, Republicans just gave thanks and Democrats kept thier mouth shut and enjoyed the meal.
    Lol. Leading questions to powder puff witnesses are not admissible in courtrooms. Sorry to say, that's why millions of Americans are wondering who thier first witness will be since the prior ones failed. Mueller sitting back saying I'm off the hook. Lol

  36. ………….the most valuable witness won't be a witness after all …, I guess we'll have to wait a bit longer for those tax returns, then maybe the "bully-in-chief" will get the stones to defend himself!!

  37. New book: the art of the criminal deal. Twitter Troll tRump must be held accountable. Where’s Rudy? Im🍑🍑🍑🍑🍑🍑🍑

  38. Trump refusing to testify is damning in itself. Still, that's Trump for you. The man-child dont have guts to face his accusers, so he just hides behind a sofa, and writes nasty Tweets at them. Like a ten year old…

  39. Republicans: Unfair! We can’t produce witnesses!
    Democrats: Sure, let’s hear from the WH lawyer, the private lawyer, the chief of staff, the secretary of state, the foreign security advisor…
    Republicans: We won’t allow anyone to testify!
    😏

  40. 300 lb dough boy has been invited..He teases saying he wants to testify then when he's invited he backs down..Hummmm why? He wouldn't remember which lie he tells then will mess up with another lie…lol

  41. Tell your kids how a man who cheats, bullies, lies, steals, has put children in jails, who is racist and sexist, how this is a desirable person to hire as your president or even as your crossing guard. I'm glad he is ill and will be gone soon.

  42. DemoRats are the trash of the world, lazy, inept, useless, worthless, pedophiles like Epstein, cheaters and bastard makers like both the Clintons,
    Typical scumbags that like gun control so only criminals can defend themselves. The most ignorant of the ignorant

  43. There will be no impeachment. Communist slow down of government. Schiff will be removed from office after the circus is over.overwhelming evidence of Democratic party socialist agenda also CNN should be taken off tv for hate speech

  44. I thought they had all the evidence they needed. Then, they choose not to force the witnesses to testify through the courts. Sounds like a bunch of bs theater. They said the Russiagate stuff was overwhelming but they decided not to impeach. These people either want Trump to win or theyre completely incompetent.

  45. Why the F should we the people even care if these three butt holes take a sheet, let alone what they have to say about impeachment?
