  1. Just so I am clear, Seculo or whatever his name is did not know about what Quasimodo was doing until it was public because it was out of his "Jurisdiction" but, he did know and maintained communication with Manafort's lawyers? Do I smell bull feces here?

  2. Trump did not only pressure the Ukrainian president he threatened him; exactly what Putin is trying to get from this fake president.
    …and wait for it – Turkey have just begun with their campagn to destroy the civillians of the northern Syrian towns by air strikes upon civiliian areas – so much for Trump's 'most wise' threats to Erdogan. Erdogan is laughing his autocratic socks off at the Donald's idiotic threats. Welcome to yet more slaughter mr Trump due to your weak and idiotic foreign policy.

  3. Rump should be arrested and put in jail that would show him he is not above the law after all he is not doing anything for the country only for himself and his company so he will not be missed and the country would run nicely without his input. Just see what he is doing to our allies the Kurds abanding them to the Erdurwan tender mercy for slaughter.



  6. Why won’t the house vote to officially begin an inquiry ? Because this is all a political show. Warren caught in another lie, Bernie is on a gurney and ole stinky Joe smells of Ukraine, Chinese and Russian favors – they’ve got no chance in 2020

  7. If there is no backbone in democrats now, does the law matter ? Does the law matter for the rest of us if it doesn't matter to the president ?..

  8. Presenting: Atgolf Twitler's Hocus-POTUS horror show: One ominous act after another making the truth be concealed, misconstrued, distorted, disappear, vanish, disintegrate, evaporate. Bonus act: "Cordon around Gordon" featuring special guests: truth-magicians Rudy Giluminati and Clown Prence Milky-Mike.

  9. What I think is that trumps attacks on Biden are fruitless. He isnt going to be in the debate. This delusional president doesnt know what's going on and Warren or Sanders wins.

  10. Obama buddies Marty Nesbitt and Harreld Kirkpatrick III formed a private equity investment firm called Vistria, right around the time Obama was re-elected in 2012. A curious pattern began to emerge. Obama and his administration would attack industries with government power, which led to substantially lower valuations for these companies. Nesbitt and Vistria, or others close to Obama, could then acquire those assets for pennies on the dollar. As an example, for-profit higher education schools like University of Phoenix, ITT Technical Institute, and DeVry University. In 2013, Obama blamed the schools for taking advantage of students by saddling them with massive amounts of student debt, ruining their credit and making a profit on it. He ordered the Federal Trade Commission to go after them.

    In the case of the University of Phoenix, its parent Apollo Education Group was suspended after a Federal Trade Commission investigation in 2015. The following year, three companies, including Vistria, swooped in to buy what remained of Apollo at a price 90% below its share price before the investigation.

    As Vistria's education investment portfolio bulged, a number of Obama Education Department officials, including Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, ended up taking high-level jobs with Vistria. "Over the next seven years, as both Joe Biden and John Kerry negotiated sensitive and high-stakes deals with foreign governments, Rosemont entities secured a series of exclusive deals with those same foreign governments."

    In December of 2013, for instance, Biden traveled to China for talks. He brought Hunter Biden along. While there, the senior Biden soft-pedaled China's clear aggression, and played up the bilateral trade partnership. Ten days after the trip concluded, China's central bank, the Bank of China, set up a $1 billion investment joint venture called Bohai Harvest RST. For the record, the "RS" referred to Biden's son's firm, Rosemont Seneca.

    That's questionable enough.

    But months later, in July 2014, Secretary of State John Kerry traveled to China, also for talks. Kerry talked little of China's clear aggression, but did conspicuously note that "China and the United States represent the greatest economic alliance trading partnership in the history of humankind."

    He should know. In the ensuing months, Chinese government-linked firms took major stakes in several of the firms owned or controlled by Hunter Biden and Chris Heinz, and provided them with massive funding totaling billions of dollars. Nor is this the only scandal involving John Kerry.

    And this just scratches the surface. Americans would be smart to question why their representative go to Washington as paupers, and return as millionaires.

    We can only hope that as Biden or Kerry gears up for a challenge to Trump in the 2020 presidential contest, they will receive the same relentless scrutiny that a Republican with the same record of venality would get. But we won't hold our breath.

  11. Guillani is Trump's new Michael Cohen fixer. Barr is not an Attorney General, he is Trump's personal Attorney. Trump acts like a dictator already. Trump tries the super-obstruction, and what is frightening is that the republicans does not wake up. The hope is in the few exceptions which the media could make louder.
    Pressuring Ukraine for private purpose is illegal, but leaving Syria, without asking anybody is unloyal, immoral and inhuman. And a strategical mistake which threats the National Security of America and other Countries.

  12. Every time you use the word "inquiry" you remove the legal nicety of "impeachment" and place yourself in the position of conducting a "witch hunt." Impeachment inquiry is a non-starter.
    September 30th, 1999: President Clinton signed a treaty between the United States of America and Ukraine "On mutual legal assistance in criminal matters." President Trump may ask for Ukrainian assistance.

  13. What is amazing and puzzling is the fact that the honest people of the State, Justice, FBI and intelligence communities don't revolt and refuse to carry out these illegal positions and orders of the leaders of these departments.

  14. Uh oh, Mueller lied under oath and is under investigation and it looks like Rosenstein also lied about wearing a wire and his private conversations to Mueller also exposed. Durham's expanded investigation / crew seems to be uncovering a whole lot of Swamp Creatures along the way. Durham's interrogation of Brennan is only the beginning!

  15. Regardless of political parties, I see a man that openly asked foreign powers to interfere in our elections! Our Congress has every reason to secure our nation and investigate this threat! What is wrong with

  17. it will need to get physical to defeat Trump, like an eviction,
    he will need to be physically restrained and handcuffed.

    Trump is basically a disturbed person, which means that as a child he must have been abused,
    either sexually, physically or psychologically.

    disturbed people have an urge to re-experience the original abuse,
    Trump wants to be violated, he wants to be arrested, he wants to revisit the original abuse,

    he wants to get angry, to become pitiful, he is begging for it as they say.
    He wants as many big things as possible to be blamed on him.

    all people have an urge to re-experience things of childhood, because that is at the centre of your personality,
    you want the same things to happen the same way, because it defines you.

    I had a situation with a character who I later found had been thrown out by his family and was in foster care,
    in a dangerous situation involving the guy where he was throwing objects at me,
    he pointed at his own nose and requested that I punch him, he wanted me to hit him,
    it was quite strange. I rejected the request in case it was a trick.

    the other case is a guy who as a child was punched in the face by his dad and also ended up in
    foster care, he is into cage fighting and he told me the thing he likes above all else is
    when he gets punched in the face, it makes his day and feels really good. He also is drawn to re-experiencing the original abuse.

    that is what Trump wants, he wants to be tasered and handcuffed, to be publicly shamed,

    but everyone is so polite and kid gloves with him!

    the unusual thing also is that Trump is also a proponent of cage fighting, UFC.

    I think the person who wants impeachment of Trump more than anyone else isnt Ari but is Trump!

    people are completely misreading the man, thinking that he doesnt want to get in trouble, in fact he is on his knees pleading for trouble, hit me, hit me, hit me, hit me with your rythm stick, hit me slowly, hit me quick,

    Ian Dury and the blockheads.

    Ari likes music quotes, so that is my quote.

  18. A "Face Off" has been occurring in the US for years. Something has got to give, and I feel in my bones that the Republican Party is about to self destruct.

  19. Does not Sekulov know that it is the right of Congress to start an impeachment inquiry? The Congress and the POTUS are on equal footing. Balance of power.
    Where did he go to law school?

  20. From here forward to qualify to run for President one should be mentally evaluated! And if they have dictatorship tendencies be removed from running.

  21. The House of Representatives/Democrats are Attempting to GATHER THE FACTS. The Senate/Republicans are Attempting to DISTRACT THE FACTS!

  22. All three of you sound like the instance of when a turd is flushed down the toilet. But if the toilet is plugged with a bunch of lies then you will be sitting with crap on you face at the end of the day

  23. We are in a constitutional crisis. We have a conman president who refuses to recognize the power of Congress vested by the constitution, and a judiciary that is being corrupted and used to delay and diminish any attempt at relief from the third branch. When you have a illegitimate president, an impotent Congress, and a subservient Judiciary, what are citizens still oath bound and loyal to the Constitution supposed to do?

  24. All of our institutions have failed us, or have been completely corrupted. Even news media have been rendered useless by the propaganda disguised as news from Fake News and other trump controlled outlets. Even facts are disputed and sycophant Congressmen argue against their own authority.

  25. Just wait till the court orders Trump to turn over evidence, and Trump says no.
    It'll happen, count on it.
    Trump will NEVER willingly give up power, you can bank on that too…

  26. Ok, since it is a constitutional crisis, WTF does that REALLY mean?!?!? Can they forcefully get docs, can they forcefully remove him!?!? WHAT NOW?!??! Start fining and arresting those who defy!!! ENOUGH is ENOUGH

  27. Trump is a coward who throws his most loyal allies against ISIS under the bus. Just because Putin wants him to. Putins little lapdog.

  28. ALTER EGO ~ Donuts Trump produced by Putin 👀🤳 ~ 🏌️‍♀️📷🏌️‍♀️ ~ 🧯🚽💥 ~ ☝🤣

  29. Nobody's getting impeached guys. You are embarassing yourselves. More, I mean. You will not regain power. Hilarious.

  30. I would LOVE to see Rudy give sworn testimony on the hill! He will spill his GUTS and lie under oath the next minute! Love. It.

  31. How is 'no cooperation with the impeachment inquiry' being totally transparent ?
    Just another example of the Twilight Zone mentality of the tRump administration and the obvious corruption therein. DISGUSTING TIME IN AMERICA TO HAVE THIS BABOON IN THE PRESIDENT'S SEAT.

  32. A group of psychiatrists wrote a book called “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump” He is poisonous, do not touch him.

  33. I do know what Weak Nancy Pelosi is waiting for. EVERYONE Except Weak Nancy Pelosi is asking for Impeachment, and not for an useless "Inquiry"

  34. Q-Name the political party that went to the Ukraine in 2016 seeking and paying for dirt on Trump.
    A-The Democrat Party
    Q-Name the country that is largest single donor to the Clinton Foundation.
    A-The Ukraine. UH oh.

  35. Trump & his minions are showing total contempt for the constitution & getting away with it, they don't care about laws. Trump's destroyed America more in 3yrs than the KGB during the entire cold war!

  36. Jay Sekulow's stammering and evasion after Ari's "When did you know?" strongly suggests that, although he may have had no part in, nor prior knowledge of the Ukraine shake-down, his involvement in the damage control/cover-up began well before the public first learned of it. In his claim of ignorance "…until all this got really public", the word "really" is a typical disingenuous qualifier inserted to provide future wiggle room.

  37. Let Congress put one or two to jail among Trump puppets to show detriment to others.Subpoenas anyone subpoenable pls..

  38. Nixon. Reagan, Bush, Trump. Endless scandals. Unfettered profligacy, Triggered recessions and depressions. Still the American public keeps going back to this bottomless well of iniquity and incompetence, the Republican party. WHY????

  39. Without his power hungry lackies trump would of been out. He listens to them to blame them in the end. But "ASHES,ASHES THEY ALL GO DOWN"!

  40. Pelosi and Schiff must now move to indict and charge these people with obstruction of Congress and contempt of Congress they must start jailing these people

  41. The timeline showing when various individuals distanced themselves from this Ukraine business could also chart their relative levels of moral integrity, competence/experience in foreign affairs, and (not coincidentally) even serves to rank their intelligence. Starting on the left, career diplomats and administrators backed away first. Next, the WH lawyers moved in to cover-up, and – while careful to cover their own butts – quickly reined in the clueless political appointees. And finally, at the extreme right we may one day find Dumb and Dumber (aka Giuliani and Trump) whose points cannot YET be plotted …until they are finished incriminating themselves.

  42. The days of redacted Mueller report.Trump went and silently hid out at Mara Lago.He was planning on going fugitive.Barr gave him a little longer rope.

  43. Impeach that treasonous Putin's puppet immediately! Enough of this foolish lawlessness! Just despicable and disgusting! Impeach! Impeach! Impeach that traitor! Period!

  44. There is no "crisis". Nowhere in our constitution does it say that you cannot indict "our" president. He is nothing more than "our" elected representative. He should be accountable to us in the form of our elected legislators. What they keep citing is a DOJ policy. Policy is not law. As I posted several years ago, eventually the rest of america will learn what every New Yorker already knew. Trump is a crook, a grifter through and through. Now he may be the cause of the death of many thousands of our allies. It was the Kurds that drew the line in the sand against ISIS. Now they are holding many potential world terrorists in custody. We lose the Kurds then it's open season on europe and the U.S. Trump did this because he has two hotels in Istanbul. He is doing what he has always done. He's looking out for himself. It will be a major dishonor for us to abandon the Kurds. He's a horrible human being and he must be removed from office by any means. Death by a thousand cuts or a thousand snipers. It doesn't matter. Our constitution must prevail. Enemies foreign and domestic are the same thing. They are enemies.

  45. Harvard Professor Leah Wright Rigueur is brilliant. More from her, and give her time to lay out a full analysis. I'm listening to Leah Wright Rigueur. Excellent.

  46. The Trump supporters(GOP)on his recent spat of words are not true but heresay only, meaning the moron has been shooting out fake news which journalist reported but the moron accused them of reporting fake news and enemy of the people, isn't a shame these fake news coming out of the clown's mouth are accepted by Republicans?

  47. Civilians are fighting against the imposter , commander in chief , he is subject to military law , he needs to be arrested under charges of treason

  48. The democrats have pressured trump until he is making some good points against the unnecessary wars we have had in the past .

  49. Fox News Poll: 51% of voters want to impeach and remove Trump. BRAVO. We'll throw a huge party once Atgolf Twitler is thrown out.

  50. Question?..Is it possible, as it clearly gets worse and worse every day for Trump..That he can declare a national emergency, and grant himself 'special powers' that will overide any decision made by Congress, including, and up to disbanding the house of reps?..What power does Trump have under law to try this?..He's done it once, and got away with it..How extensive are these powers?
