  1. House Democrat's feudal 3.5 yr.and 6 tries search for an impeachable crime an make it stick on Trump, has been for them, like pouring water on a duck's back.Build the wall.

  2. The founders spent a lot of time thinking about how to prevent the president from being a tyrant. It's all down clearly in the constitution. Trump is exactly the type they were thinking about. It's time.

  3. It's about time to hold this man (donald trump) accountable for his deplorable abuse of power as the President of the USA. We can not allow him to put our nation at risk any longer. Trump has to be TRUMPED right out of office. If you are a True AMERICAN, then there is NO WAY you would deny that he needs to GO NOW. When you abuse your authority, you lose your authority. It is extremely obvious that Trump is guilty of doing this. Trump loses his authority!

  4. What Barbara Jordan so eloquently stated is that if you can't see the offenses presented in these articles of impeachment then you might as well shred our constitution. And it's a little more than ironic that we find ourselves here once again as The Republican Party stands by as witness to this administration trashing The Republic. Their oath of office. AND The Constitution.

  5. So if he’s not colluding with the russians he must be colluding with Ukraine by seeking justice upon a criminal not in a way that is in the interrest of the people 😂

  6. Democrats and liberals you guys lost your mind the Russia collusion big nothing Burger remember that tick tock tick tock you all kept saying well that turned out to be a big nothing Burger so tell me what crime has he committed to get impeached

  7. You will fail yet again President Trump is just to clever for you … and yet again you will fail fail fail why because your all dickheads ..

  8. We the people need a president who is honest who has honor and who has our respect for we the people deserve better than this. our hard earned back breaking tax money is being withheld from a country that needs our help we need to regain order and cleanse the office because regardless if you think he did or didn’t do anything wrong WE the people don’t deserve to be lied to 11,000+ times from one person over a span of a few years these are the facts..

  9. HERE WE GO AGAIN,THE IMPEACHMENT OF TRUMP ! IT'S FALLING APART RIGHT NOW, WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE RULED BY A BUNCH OF SPINELESS FINGER POINTING FOOL'S, IM SO SICK OF IT . THE FAKE NEW'S HAS TO STOP TOO ,ITS ALL ABOUT THERE PAY CHECK'S .I DON'T LIKE 10 DIFFERENT PEOPLE TELLING ME SAME THING, ONE'S ENOUGH .LET'S GET THIS CLEAR THE 'WHISTLE BLOWER WONT GET IN TROUBLE FOR HIS" MISTAKE" ? WELL EDWARD STOLDERN WAS ALSO A YOUNG WHISTLE BLOWER ,BRING HIM BACK TOO- NO CHARGES THEN. HOW MUCH MONEY WAS WAISTED OVER THESE WITCH HUNTS IN LAST TWO YEARS .LET'S FIX THE BRIDGE'S AND ROADS ,PUT CHINA IN ITS PLACE. INVEST IN ELECTRIC CAR' ,HI SPEED TRAINS ,GO TO MAR'S , GIVE AMERICAN PEOPLE FREE MEDICAL ,END OVERWEIGHT PROBLEM. THERE'S PLENTY OF GOOD TO DO . THANKYOU

  10. Breaking News: "  Judicial Watch announced today it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit for records about the firing of Ukraine’s top prosecutor after then-Vice President Joe Biden threated to withhold aid. The lawsuit was filed yesterday against the U.S. Department of State (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. @-cv-02893)).In a widely distributed video, Joe Biden confirmed that he successfully pressured, under threat of withholding $1 billion in U.S. government aid, the Ukrainian government to fire Shokin, who had allegedly launched an investigation into Burisma, which had purportedly paid Biden’s son Hunter $50,000 a month. "

  11. , nice distraction, smoke screen . all this crap…this is a total freak out my the criminal deep state.plain and simple. IT SEEMS {IT} IS WORKING.SURE NOT INVESTIGATING EPSTEIN AND THE SECRETS OF THE MANY ISLANDS???????.I THINK THE TIME HAS COME ABOUT FOR A REAL BIG STORM. and not chemtrail clouds. wakeee wakee.peace is coming…for some…

  12. Oh look its Cliven Bundy aka James Madison. You have to be God himself to sort out this mess. Things are so much worse that they seem.

  13. Let's be honest. Trump isn't being impeached because he wanted to smear Biden. But it is because this gave the Democrats ammo to get rid of the most likely competitor who had a shot a presidency from the GOP. The other GOP members are also nut jobs. But they fail to get people to vote on them.

  14. Always keep in mind what Republicans would be saying had Obama EXTORTED Ukraine to investigate a leading Republican opponent and then ask them to explain why none of them are challenging Trump’s behaviour. Is it cowardice? Are they frightened of this callous mobster? Do they really deserve to be elected representatives of the American people? Trump has to be prosecuted for his treasonous behaviour.

  15. The Ukranian FM and President back Trump's version of the phone call. If you read the transcript it was the Ukranian President who brought up Biden first. MSNBC told you for 2 years Mueller was going to convict Trump, didn't they? Why does anyone listen to them now?

  16. lets all not file nor pay income tax,it is not legal the Consitution states this as fact.when all those not doing their jobs in washington lose their meal ticktes,good luck finding work.its slim pickings in the real world.

  17. Even if Trump pressured the Ukrainian prelate, which he did not, that is no more illegal than a partisan lefty reporter pressuring the same prelate for a story against Trump. It is a candidate’s right to ferret out flaws in his opponents, and this in no way interferes with the election that decides which one will win. It may garner the ferret more votes, to his credit.

  18. Just blew it by bringing in actors!Harvard law professor,and democrat,Alan Dershowitz says…"nothing close to impeachable".

  19. Asking a foreign leader to investigate possible corruption is a “high crime?” …lol you all are stupid. So, Biden can’t be investigated for corruption because he’s running for office?

  20. The more I watch the happenings in DC, the more it appears this is just a bunch of insiders seeing the end of their gravy train of money and power, and are willing to go to great lengths to get back to the corrupt status quo.  The behavior from some Repubs and Dems, as well as media is completely consistent with how they acting.

  21. Liberal Democrats are all the sudden looking back at the founding fathers and the constitution with great reverence and awe, understanding the immense foresight and wisdom that led these savages to include a tool that would allow them to remove a President. Not such an outdated document after all.

  22. Wow man I love how asking for info from a country is now impeachable. You do realize he asked questions, not forced the Ukrainian leader. It’s like if I asked if you had a good day and you said I’m not answering that cause you forced me to.

    Not only that, but the info he was trying to find out about is not only about the election, it could actually prove that someone who wasn’t Republican did something wrong. Now I know that’s pretty crazy guys, cause you Democrat’s are never wrong, right?

  23. The democrats betrayed their trust to foreign powers , example open borders . Excepting donation from foreign princesses ,dictators ,companies for example the Clintons, Joe Biden .now they act like they care for the USA .NOTHING is going to happen to Trump give it up

  24. TREASON! TREASON! Trump has practiced treason!! He has violated so many norms that we all are tired of keeping up with his violations!! We have to defend our nation and this nation has been dragged through the slime created by trump and his administration! A administration that trump has not filled! Him not filling these posts make us weaker than we can imagine!! Trump is a unindicted criminal and just seems like he can't stop himself from abusing our office of the president!! We need to clean our house! We need to throw out the trash!!

  25. Ari it's NOT UP TO OUR CONGRESSMEN AND WOMEN!! THOSE LEADERS WORK FOR 'US"!! IT'S UP TO EVERY AMERICAN TO TELL THEIR REPRESENTATIVES TO REMOVE TRUMP FROM OFFICE NOW!.TRUMP HAS BEEN VIOLATING HIS OATH OF OFFICE FOR A LONG TIME NOW! IT STARTED WITH HIS END AROUND CONGRESS AND THE PURSE! CLEAR VIOLATION OF THE CONSTITUTION! WE MUST CLEAR UP OUR ACT! THE WORLD IS TOO DAMNED DANGEROUS TO HAVE A LOOSE CANNON AND A CLEAR VIOLATOR OF OUR CONSTITUTION! THE VERY SAME DOCUMENT THAT HELPED BUILD OUR NATION TRUMP IS USING TO MAKE US WEAK! THIS CAN'T GO ON! CALL OR TEXT YOUR REPRESENTATIVE'S THIS WEEKEND!!! OUR NATION IS AT SERIOUS RISK AND WE NEED TO EXERCISE OUR DEMOCRACY HERE AND NOW.AND STOP A UNINDICTED CRIMINAL WHO THINKS HE'S A DICTATOR AND ABOVE OUT LAWS!

  26. Anyone with half a brain can understand why asking a foreign leader to investigate any American is wrong and totally against the foundation and belief in our country

  27. Trump won't be removed the senate will not do it, this means we need a landslide in 2020 for republicans covering for a criminal

  28. Treaty Between the United States of America and Ukraine on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters with Annex, signed at Kiev on July 22, 1998, and with an Exchange of Notes signed on September 30, 1999, which provides for its provisional application.

    Was Trump within his legal right as POTUS to request from Ukraine assistance in criminal matters concerned?

  29. The Democrats must use caution. It's suspicious to me that the white house manufactured this recent crisis, control the timing and released the transcript. Seems like the WH is doing a rope-a- dope. .

  30. It does not meet the standard at all the democrat party is finished in this country and many arrests coming for high crimes!!!! They are cooked!

  31. Fake News os always wrong. They start out strong with their lies. Then as it goes on. They find nothing there and have to start over with something else

  32. The double speak on this channel ! This is not reporting and informing . This is telling One what to think for political reasons = propaganda .

  33. The US might not actually need a completely new constitution, but what is really called for is a thorough clarification of terms: The English language has undergone significant changes in recent centuries, and the language used by the Founding Fathers is now being twisted beyond recognition. Congress should really appoint a group of scholars to come up with a dictionary, eventually made into law, that clearly defines the meaning of the original language in the constitution in modern legal and layman terms.

  34. Advice Master is a user name you will find in the comment section. He is NOT American. He is a Brit. Here, he poses as an American. He has also posed as a Muslim, a militant Black man, a Jewish rabbi, and my all time favorite: A retired USMC officer, hero in the Vietnam war. THIS LOSER, has never left England. What a nerd.

  35. But the Truth is, the Senate will NEVER impeach Trump. So this whole thing is just ridiculous. It seems nothing will take Trump down. It's sad but true. We have given up way too much of our power. Giving our Government to Corporations wasn't such a great move after all. WOW!

  36. Can I please get real evidence? All I heard the ENTIRE video is,”reports say trump…” I don’t care what a leftist reporter has to say about trump. I wanna see the actual transcript of that call, and I wanna hear trumps explanation of what happened. “Oh well of course trump isn’t going to self incriminate” so then I want to see Biden’s story, and why haven’t we even mentioned Biden’s son? He has NO resume, multiple convictions, and suddenly gets a 600k a year job? This all makes no sense. NBC, CNN, FOX, and all other mass media is so bias nowadays that they don’t bother to look at the facts😪

  37. Trump asked the Ukraine President to look into Hunter Biden's corruption. Hunter got kicked out of the military for cocaine use. So his political career will go nowhere. So his dad Joe Bidden takes him on Air Force Two to the Ukraine of all places in the world and gets him a job paying $50,000 a month on the board of directors of the largest energy company in Ukraine.Hunter has no experience in energy or The Ukraine. WTF!!! Locals hear of this and tell Hillary people so Joe decides not to run. Ha Ha Her Turn! And don't forget the video of Joe Bidden bragging about holding ransom aid to Ukraine. He said he would be on a plane in 6 hours and if the prosecutor that was looking into the corruption at the company his son work at , they would not get the billion dollar aid package. Guess what, the prosecutor got fired. Of course Obama people will mot investigate this so Trump will ask the Ukraine president to send information to his Attorney General.

  38. Yeah and our founders also kept other humans as property and vilified the native Americans already living here for thousands of years. The founders did and said a lot things huh? Point is it's big picture time like how America has interfered in other nations elections and politics over the decades. Suddenly it's a problem? Suddenly we care huh? How ironic.

  39. I look ahead to the year: 2030 . What has happened that's got the American people so EXCITED?……. FACEBOOK and TWITTER have been PERMANENTLY removed from "social media"…….and America is ACTUALLY safe once again and people LITERALLY talk and interact with each other again!!!!!!!

  40. Let's talk about the accomplishments of one POTUS in particular. President Lincoln. Lincoln signed into law the Income Tax. It introduced a system where taxpayers, you and I and the top 1% were separated into multiple categories according to their income. He abolished slavery. He established the National Banking System. A National currency. Helped the economy flourish through building canals, railroads connecting the East to West, factories, etc. He signed the first of the Homestead Act, allowing poor people to obtain land. He established the U.S. Department of Agriculture, enabling farmers to supply this Nation's consumers. First President to hold a patent. He signed the Morrill land grant Act which led to the creation of numerous universities He signed a bill to charter National Banks, allowing them to issue banknotes as loans to customers up to 90% of the value of U.S. bonds held by each bank. Trump's supporters need to make a comparison between great Presidents and Trump. I feel those who support Trump and this 'do nothing Republican Senate' is a case of not wanting to be identified with POOR PEOPLE and the needy of this Nation. To be a Republican is a STATUS thing. And only a status image is important to Trump's supporters. Trump is a prime example of an individual who has openly declared his indifference to all people of color, lack of personal wealth. and influence. Epstein was a prime example of who he would rather befriend.

  41. Our forefathers established a capital economy supporting a democratic socialist republic. We have a candidate running for POTUS that defends those values on a daily basis. Senator Elizabeth Warren. She will pay for her ideas the same way President Lincoln stirred the economy while he was President. Manufacture in the USA. Raise taxes on the 1% to pay their fair share. Infrastructure to boost jobs. Build on inventions, produce in the USA, and sell overseas. Protect our environment at all costs. It's time to make HISTORY and put Senator Elizabeth Warren in our Nation's driver seat.

  42. The Demonrat interpretation of “high crimes and misdemeanors” will include anything they deem it to be, regardless of Constitutional precedent or rational thought. Another Supreme Court case in the offing, as a result of Demonrat head hunting, beginning on Election Day 2016.

  43. Bless all news reporters' courage as this President is his usual lowest Self. Thank God visible individuals are finally speaking out.

  44. I want to know more about Mike Pence tho. He's been avoiding this issue since it started pretty strongly for understandable reasons, but I want to know more about what he thinks.

  45. Stop being sheep people….you got tricked by a leftist reporter on a fake news channel….Unreal, just open your eyes…..Trump 2020🇺🇸

  46. That’s what I say, this Shyt either means something or it does not. Both sides throw the constitution around only when it fits their narratives. I pray for our country.

  47. Maybe it's time for a revision to the constitution. Abuse of power amendment anyone? The aging constitution was not prepared for this.

  48. He feels you Mrs Melro Streep. Very nice of you. Long time no see. She is mad, your honor Mrs Hillary. But here is your books. Bring them with her to see the President. She is double majors in doubling dulcification, minimalist, ministerialist How about me? Let see. Mrs Madame. Ok tell them Hillary Clinton is here. Here! You means. Means tell me so means.

  49. They are wrong they actually were going to serve him his official dismissal paper's but with the help of the local constabulary they deliberately delayed the car carrying those papers by having all the traffic lights turned red on the approach to the WH thus delaying the serving of those paper's long enough for nixon to walk in the VP office and hand in his resignation – This has all been clearly documemnted in Mark Lanes book about watergate

  50. The term Demonrat accurately reflects the level of respect due the party of slavery and abortion, which is responsible for rocketing taxes, health care costs, and the deficit; fanning the flames of racial dissension; and ruthless partisanship and corruption in Government.

  51. Remember our beloved Auntie Maxine Waters, "We must impeach hm, we must impeach him.'" Thank you Auntie, baby, that's just what we're about to do.
