He wants to be a dictator and if necessary, will encourage a hot civil war to succeed. Democracy and Trump can NOT coexist. This struggle will end in one of two ways. Either he will destroy U.S. democracy and be America’s ruler or he will be gone. Reply JorgeXFBunny P says: October 25, 2019 at 5:58 am You dumb Republicans. You need to understand Donald will throw you underneath bus.He abandoned his allies. He will continue. You don't want a person that will abandon his allies and throw you underneath the Turkey. Wake up, You should be better than this. 2:17 Donald Cruel man. He doesn't have a heart for his allies. Sorry i need to go Reply yada yada says: October 25, 2019 at 6:00 am The Republicans have become the peak of what they truly are. They once at least pretended they didn't stand for cheating, discrimination, exclusivity, prejudice, hatred, election rigging, wielding religion as a prop to hide behind, environmental destruction, corporatocracy, lying, and hipocrisy. Now these are their primary pillars. They play nasty, at which they are deft. And they've become caricatures of themselves. Reply MTL Montana says: October 25, 2019 at 6:12 am No comment, just theatrics. Amazing. Hey Republicans, remember the constitution? Reply Joe Morales says: October 25, 2019 at 6:32 am RELEVANT HISTORICAL NOTE ON REAGAN – BUSH AG "FIXER", William Barr, who killed the Iran-Contra investgation. Barr's specialty is treason and obstruction of justice & keeps the SENATE under tow because he has Epstein's black book. As member of Epstein's defense team he effectively handed The Backdoor Girls, the Maxwell sisters, the hijacked 'Promis' software that backdoors FBI and US security. prayorbeprey dot com Reply Joe Morales says: October 25, 2019 at 6:43 am i shoot my gun all the time. so what i hit somebody Reply Natalia A.

Reply Gary Santos says: October 25, 2019 at 2:42 pm Abuse of power, in the form of "malfeasance in office" or "official misconduct," is the commission of an unlawful act, done in an official capacity, which affects the performance of official duties. “Malfeasance in office is often grounds for a for-cause removal of an elected official by statute or recall election.” Abuse of power can also mean a person using the power they have for their own personal gain.

Reply Debbie Trudeau says: October 25, 2019 at 3:19 pm A dismal, disgusting and very SAD look at the priorities of the republican party. They apparently have so little work to do in their actual JOB that they decided behaving like a bunch of preteens protesting the new Star Wars movies was a good idea. Then to make it even WORSE these clowns that are always crying about "National Security" when it comes to any small infraction by a democrat NOW don't think that matters since they all took their electronic devices into a SECURE area. I think we should do what the those same republicans would be doing if it was a group of democrats doing that……EVERY official and legal action possible for THEIR ignorant and stupid STUNT !!! A STUNT meant to interrupt testimony and distract from the already damaging testimony given as evidence to the inept presidents ignorance, greed and stupid crimes and misdemeanors. There is NO evidence to exonerate the fool, no claim to "ignorance" of the wrongdoing AND now instead of the president being the main obstruction to justice they ALL are! Reprimand, revoke, charge and if applicable JAIL the whole lot of the screaming, whining and infantile republicans Reply harry varner says: October 25, 2019 at 3:20 pm So Trump should be impeached for investigating corruption. While Biden who is on tape admitting to the corruption is fine running for and becoming president. Fake news by fake journalists!

Reply Troy Cartwright says: October 25, 2019 at 4:49 pm So only republicans can hold classified inquiries? They did it on Benghazi. They did it for the Clinton impeachment. But now that dems are doing it its wrong??? Republicans truly are dishonest scum…. Reply Pacific Traveler says: October 25, 2019 at 5:12 pm At 2:24 We gonna go see if we can get inside?the young raciest man fan said.

They broke their oath they pledge allegiance to trump.. And screw America Reply Magister in Artium says: October 25, 2019 at 6:10 pm The GOP showed the way to hold a revolution to all future politicians – direct action, forget voting and democracy – brought a smile to the face of their master in Moscow. Reply Carole Trudeau says: October 25, 2019 at 6:39 pm Oh Reply RaHeem Taylor says: October 25, 2019 at 7:56 pm Funny how regressives can't simply say "He's not guilty. He didn't extort anyone." The facts and multiple confessions are already out there. Reply Jeannie Speer says: October 25, 2019 at 8:01 pm I'm 67 years old and have followed politics my whole life. At this point I can say with absolute certainty that we either are watching the dumbest politicians in the history of our Country or the most corrupt. They should, at the very least, all be censured for their behavior. Especially the ones who could have legally been in that room, but chose to make the halls of Congress into a circus in defense of a clown.

Reply Michael Keller says: October 25, 2019 at 11:56 pm How can the demos make a hearing "private"? not classified. Keep it open NICE spin MSNBC Reply the blue penguin says: October 25, 2019 at 11:57 pm The saddest part of this is the many dead Ukrainians that could be alive right now if not for President Trump's extortion. Between letting Saudi twist in the wind after the attack on their oil facilities, the terror at the thought of his financials being scrutinized (I highly suspect Trump was flat-broke before a huge influx of capital from within Russia, reports of incriminating and highly embarrassing video of Trump when he was in Moscow for one of his beauty pageants, the abandonment of the best allies Washington has yet had in the fight against Islamist terrorism, etc., it seems every single foreign policy move, almost all against the better judgement of advisors, can there be any doubt at all who is pulling Trump's strings. Trump was again broke, he stupidly got caught in a honey-trap on video, and there is exactly one beneficiary. Though it is going unspoken, I'm sure people like Sen. Romney know all this, and luckily Trump's immoral and highly unethical behavior as president has caught up with him. Reply Michael Keller says: October 25, 2019 at 11:58 pm The Dems have lost their minds….give me a break with closed doors Reply Robin Riser-James says: October 26, 2019 at 12:50 am https://www.conservapedia.com/MSNBC Reply Max Doubt says: October 26, 2019 at 12:56 am C'mon you repugnicans! Admit it: you feel that Dongleberry should be able to do anything to anyone, any time for any reason and suffer no legal consequences. That aligns nicely with how he feels.

Evidence. Reply Marshal Giggleman says: October 26, 2019 at 2:59 am The next time Republicans hold a closed door meeting to plan their messaging strategy, we need about 10,000 angry young men to storm the meeting and break down the doors and order Chinese food. Reply Marshal Giggleman says: October 26, 2019 at 3:02 am Now it's just like Watergate – with a bunch of bungling idiots breaking and entering. Reply Tobin Durazo says: October 26, 2019 at 3:11 am Desperate times induce desperate behavior. These bozo's couldn't find their thumbs if they had both hands in the same bucket.

The reason lying is bad is because it causes chaos. Chaos tends to get worse and spiral out of control. Donald Trumps lies have caused a hurricane of chaos that these Republican congressmen have now been sucked into. Now they have to deal with it. And because they don't have honest leadership, they now move as a dishonest chaotic force. I'm a physicist. I can tell you this is what happens all over the universe. Now you see it happening in real time. This is why we need investigation to remove the chaos and get to the truth. This is the truth they don't want everyone to see because they are dishonest liars. See how it go's full circle? Reply The Outlier says: October 26, 2019 at 6:38 pm Fox can't cover up his misdeeds fast or often enough. Reply smdh this world says: October 26, 2019 at 7:47 pm Protestors would be sprayed or arrested Reply Patrick D says: October 26, 2019 at 8:07 pm Republicans need to make a choice: stand with us in impeaching this president who clearly committed a crime or STAY OUT OF OUR WAY. If you try and stand against us you will be removed, one way or another, because we, the American People, will NOT let what happened in Germany happen here in the states. If Republicans are going to keep pulling stunts like this, you’re playing a dangerous game with the rest of the population because Americans are not going to stand for that.

Reply Tut J'wandian says: October 27, 2019 at 12:01 am "Facing mounting impeachment evidence, GOP lawmakers break the rules to “shut down” a closed door impeachment hearing in a secure location." this is literally against the consitution.

Reply debbie jaynes says: January 25, 2020 at 12:38 pm I know that Hobomber's Dems have been increasing their wealth by pillaging in Ukraine. This is way bigger than protection the Biden's. This involves many, possibly including some Republicans. If the swamp can't be drained, at last enough of the murk to expose the thieves and liars within government can be exposed. That is why they fear Trump. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
