  1. Rethuglicans don't care as long as their pockets filled with money. This is what happen when you put money in politics.

  2. There's NOTHING in American political history that reeks of corruption like WHAT #45's done …even the infamous "Teapot Dome" scandal DIDN'T involve selling out American allies TO dictators. 😒

  3. Our Children and Grandchildren will read of Republicans betraying their oaths of office and betraying the American people in US History books for generations.

  4. Trump gave 1 million dollars to each of the republican senators that are willing to vote for him and stand by his corruption. They need to impeach the republican party!! Get rid of them all. Since when can you buy votes because you're rich. Only in America folks!!

  5. True but the fact they can get away with it shows their supporter choses extreme ideological divide over principle, law & order even the constitution too. What is America without the supremacy of Constitution and law? What is the famous line? That what makes Americans are the rules they live by, not their origin, without which there is no nation? What those who accept the toxicity is, what we are talking about is the very disintegration of the what is called USA itself.

  6. Jim Jones convinced his cultists that they should give their kids cyanide laced punch, and then they should drink the same poisoned punch themselves, and they did. I am 100% certain that Trump could convince his cultists to do the exact same thing.

  7. "I pledge allegiance, to Lord King Donald Trump, of the Dystopian States of America, and to the monarchy for which he stands, one ruler, the chosen god, with oppression and subjugation for all."
    —Trump supporters

  8. Next time Trump is scheduled for a routine colonoscopy all they'll need to do is give Jim Jordan or Matt Gaetz a list of what to look for. They pretty much know their way around in there.

  9. It's no coincidence. Dem leadership is making repeated allegations about the Trump Presidency that they themselves, the Dem leadership, are guilty of. That technique is straight out of socialist Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals". Basically, Dem leadership is unethical and intellectually dishonest. Their followers swallow it. We will not become socialist..

  10. Propaganda still pushing the sinking impeachment narrative. Supreme Court demolished 2nd Article this week agreeing to hear the Trump cases in March, Dems have now changed parties and many will both against along with the American public overwhelmingly against it….now the rats are jumping the sinking ship.

  11. Trump will be impeached by the House. We know the GOP controlled Senate will not remove him. As Mitch and Lindsay made sure  of that.

    It is worth the fight? Atticus Finch was voted the greatest  hero of cinema . Atticus was voted the most inspiring hero in literature.

    Atticus chose to defend a "colored man" in a doomed court case. The court knew he would lose. The Judge knew he would lose. The court audience  knew he would lose. Atticus knew it was worth the fight and did the right  thing. He fought the hardest , no matter the outcome of  the case.

    It is worth the fight for the impeachment case, no matter the outcome of the case.

  12. WE ARE AMERICANS FIRST BEFORE ANY PARTY!!! IMPEACH D.T NOW HE REPRESENTS THE TOTAL OPPOSITE OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES!!!

  13. Yeah, but there's far left and center Left Democrats fighting each other, Progressive will not vote for a center Left Joe Biden even though he doesn't make fun of disabled people like Trump.So say what you want, Trump is going to be re-elected.

  14. Projection is all the corrupt, partisan Dems have. Pelosi put the most corrupt, partisan, dishonest member of Congress in charge of the fake inquiry. What's worse is the corrupt media is 100% complicit in the Dems corruption.

  15. MSNBCannibal news was never elected, they just showed up and said to the American people "We are the High Priests of Truth and if you dont like it you are a Conspiracy theorist , WE OWN YOU!!!!!!!! BOW TO US and be thankful Andrea hasnt chainsaw decapitated you yet!!)

  16. President Donald Trump fighting for the American worker. The Dow Jones Industrial Average achieved another milestone on Monday when it crossed 28,332.74, gaining 10,000 points since President Donald Trump’s election win on November 8, 2016.
    The gains come as U.S. markets have been flourishing under Trump, who has enacted tax reform and rewritten global trade deals to benefit Americans.

  17. You know what you've gotta love? You tell Republicans, "Look, Sondland was Trump's guy. He admitted what he did for Trump." And Trumpists say, "Sondland? You're gonna believe HIM? He's a slimy, crooked, creep! He's got no credibility!" And before that, you say to them, "Look, Michael Cohen was Trump's guy. He admitted what he did for Trump." And Trumpists say, "Cohen? You're gonna believe HIM? He's a slimy, crooked, creep! He's got no credibility!" And now you say to them, "Look, Lev Parnas was working for Giuliani and the President. Look what he's saying!" And they say, "Parnas?! You're gonna believe HIM? He's a slimy, crooked, creep! He's got no credibility!" Um, HELLOOOO!! JUST HOW MANY of these guys does the President surround himself with?? How is he gonna drain the swamp when all he knows are snakes and alligators?????

  18. No… it’s not “Party,” it’s Racial Ideology. White Supremacy has no National loyalty as we are witnessing. This is about maintaining White Power by ANY MEANS NECESSARY including TREASON!

  19. Pelsoi did not force Van Drew out of the Democratic Party like the GOP did to Amash. He was afraid of the voters, not his party.

  20. Can they read? A child can.
    I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God….. may god help you

  21. Republicans took an oath once Obama was elected and had not taken office yet. To be the, "party of no". That violated their oath of office. Now they hold allegiance to Trump and lie cheat and steal for him, against the oath of their office. Those of you on the left. This question is not for for you.
    Republicans, what will you do when these elected officials that have violated their oath at least twice, turn on you?

  22. Republicans don't care about America, her people, OR the Constitution. They only care about Republicans, which could ultimately mean the end of this country.

  23. Voters must consider that the choice is between providing approval of DjT's excesses and his nascent dictatorship with our silence and inaction as "Rupublicans" want
    or
    using the power of the Constitution to voice our disapproval through a process agreeing on articles of impeachment (if not conviction)
    as well as
    voting him and his servile enablers out of office on November 3, 2020.

    The Constitution, our Republic's foundation made relevant only by the will of the American people and their elected representatives.

  24. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries is a star in the Democratic Party. I'd vote for him for president, but for now, I'd settle for him to serve as Impeachment Manager.

  25. Principled American voters need to go out in force next November, but especially in the districts whose freshmen representatives have taken a principled stand and the one district whose freshman opportunist did not.

  26. Both parties and news media are guilty as charged, the American people, regardless of party, race, class and creed have witnessed disloyalty. Claiming a lack of honesty against just one side is a complete irresponsible lack of journalistic integrity. Let's see one of your polls on how much America puts their trust in getting unbiased truth in media.

  27. The sad thing to add to this is Rachel Maddow’s report the GOP are ramping up voter suppression and voter roll purges in Wisconsin and Georgia. Disgraceful.

  28. no. however the corrupt dnc have put bad actresses and unacceptable expectations as their priorities while also demanding america be afflicted with amnesia regarding their constant circus of criminal clinton scam 'significance'. jefferies is the cliche slop service that only ted lieu could top with swalwell, exactly.

    yes the dnc legislature are a disgrace to democracy an institutional spectacle of ford flopped authority requiring rigged rule respect and yes they are an international liability thankfully becoming less relevant with each demand for applause and attention.

  29. Proud of the staffers of Rep Van Drew. You have proven him that he is hypocrite and not working really for the country and the citizens of his parish. Hope that one of you will run against him

  30. NO!!!
    This is what the Democats have done!!!
    And they have guaranteed that Republicans will re-take the House in 2020 and Trump will be re-elected!!!
    And I'm an independent voter saying this!!!

  31. MOSCOW MITCH WONT PROTECT OUR ELECTIONS BECAUSE HE INTENDS TO CHEAT. THIS ADMINISTRATION IS ENCOURAGING CHEATING IN THE 2020 ELECTION. tRUMP HIMSELF HAS WELCOMED IT, THE GOP WILL NOT ALLOW BILLS TO MOVE FORWARD FOR A VOTE TO PROTECT THE ELECTION. WHAT MORE DO WE NEED TO SEE? THE GOP WANTS TO JUST TAKE IT, ANYWAY THEY CAN GET IT. HOW ELSE CAN WE SEE IT?

  32. Dirty Republicans!! Aren't they the ones who thought there was nothing wrong with kidnapping Africans and bringing them to the new world America the land they had stole from Natives and still in the process of as they brought the africans with the intention of treating them as slaves!!! Its no surprise to me that they can say without hesitation that Trump has done nothing wrong!!! Whether they believe it or not, No morals!!!

  33. Why do democrats vote for and listen to the imbeciles who spew "our democracy". The national election isn't a democratic process and our nation isn't a democracy but a constitutional republic.

  34. THE LAW IS ON TRUMPS SIDE! CNN & REST OF HATE MONGER NEWS FORGETS THAT THERE IS A TREATY BETWEEN THE USA & UKRAINE SIGNED INTO LAW BY CLINTON & SENATE TITLED "MUTUAL LEGAL ASSISTANCE IN CRIMINAL MATTERS". ACCORDING TO THE TREATY TRUMP WAS WELL WITHIN HIS LEGAL RIGHT TO REQUEST ASSISTANCE. SIGN IN KIEV 7/22/98 & IN SENATE 1999.The Treaty is one of a series of modern mutual legal assistance treaties being Negotiated by the United States in order to counter criminal activities more effectively. The Treaty should be an effective tool to assist in the prosecution of a wide variety of crimes, including drug trafficking offenses. The Treaty is self-executing. It provides for a broad range of cooperation in criminal matters. Mutual assistance available under the Treaty includes: taking of testimony or statements of persons; providing documents, records, and articles of evidence; serving documents; locating or identifying persons; transferring persons in custody for testimony or other purposes; executing requests for searches and seizures; assisting in proceedings related to restraint, confiscation, forfeiture of assets, restitution, and collection of fines; and any other form of assistance not prohibited by the laws of the requested state. I recommend that the Senate give early and favorable consideration to the Treaty and give its advice and consent to ratification.
    WILLIAM J. CLINTON.
    HE WAS ALSO (PER SUPREME COURT) WITHIN HIS RIGHTS TO DENY ANY WITNESSES,DOCUMENTS, OR OTHER MATERIAL SIMPLY FOR THE FACT OF FISHING WITHOUT A SPECIFIED CRIME AND PROOF OF A CRIME. SCHIFF HAD NEITHER-JUST 3 YRS OF FISHING!

  35. Is it "principled" to leave, yet more vacancies, for gop to usurp what is left!? How can "jumping ship" be considered "principled"!!!???

  36. These are NOT 'red' districts . Purple maybe .  PS: Every House member is 'vulnerable' every two years  . Why we have elections .

  37. This impeachment conspiracy was allready started as soon Trump win 2016. All dems and the media was preparing for it. Now dems knew that Trump will win again in the 2020 so they are playing this dirty trick. Actually dems and the corrupt media is betraying the American people with their lies. All sham process without a proper process by the leading house democrat Shiff and by the Nadler. Shame on dems and the corrupt Leftist corrupt media. MSNBC.

  38. We The People vote our law makers on the eve of the loyalty vs Constitution will shame the United States of America and will be voted out of their money making seats I pray that they do the right thing but if they don't charma is a voice of reckoning may they suffer harshly by the hand of their God

  39. I just went through a bunch of posts here and saw absolutely no evidence to back up a single comment. All I noticed is all comments were backed by hate, jealousy and ignorance. Nothing more than name calling and bias responses and insults. WHAT THAT SAYS FOR YOU AND YOUR PARTY IS THAT YOUR NOTHING MORE THAN POLITICAL TRASH AND USELESS FLESH LIVING OFF THE WORK OF OTHERS. iF HE GETS IMPEACHED…IF ANY OF YOU EVEN HAVE A JOB…YOU WONT IN SHORT TIME…NO MORE RISE IN 401K…NO MORE STOCK MARKET GAINS…JUST TEARS FROM LOSERS AND HATERS THAT WERE MENTORED BY CRIMINALS…WHEN THE INDICTMENTS COME OUT…SOON…YOU WILL STILL STAND YOUR GROUND AND FURTHER PROVE YOUR HATE AND IGNORANCE…YOU CRAZY, PEOPLE WILL BE THE CAUSE OF YOUR OWN DEMISE SOMEDAY AND I CAN DO NOTHING BUT LAUGH RIGHT IN YOUR FACE RIGHT NOW THIS VERY MINUTE….

  40. Republican's can't be complacent in 2024 after the Trump landslide in 2020. Pleased be focused and don't let the liberal blight take control of the country, or we will be all doomed!!!

  41. What a 💩 All of the negative media makes me🤢 Every time I turn on any news broadcasts it make me Want to🤮 I used to enjoy watching the news😠 I Can no longer find a reliable trustable news source😞 What happened to real news on adulterated left all right give us distraits to tell us how it is not your perception of it☹ Now all we get is political talk show host pretending to be news broadcasters pitiful what a shame
    ☹😞😠🤮🤢💩😫

  42. I am an independent I did not vote for Hillary or Trump How ever given The Choice between the 2 of them I predicted trump would win And he would get 2 terms Judging by what I have seen in his 1st term I was right Brings me to prediction 3 We will be spending the next 4 years listening to mainstream media complain about Russia affecting our election again
    However don't Fred if a Democrat gets a turn we can always blame China but I predict will be blaming Russia
    It's easier that way we don't have ourselves to blame it's not like democrats had no message other than impeach 45 or republicans had no one suitable to run against him nah let's blame Russia or China It's so much easier to point fingers at somebody else than Our self

  43. Touching earth is good example. You can fail here. Oath maybe small but its there. Our Motto. "In God We Trust" Why do we think its not real. Dieing not real.

  44. Trump writes about the Salem Witch trials. Dorothy, written as "Dorcas" on the warrant for her arrest, received a brief hearing in which the accusers repeatedly complained of bites on their arms. She was sent to jail, becoming at age five the youngest person to be jailed during the Salem witch trials. Sounds like the children who are in cages today thanks to Trump and Steven Miller. And history repeats its self.

  45. I sit here, every morning just FLABERGASTED at the goings on of the republican party. I've never seen ANYTHING like this in my 67 years of being an American.

  46. Distractions, hmm. I'd be bothered a week behind Christmas. #Trump buries himself with stupid words. Who could possibly make #Trump look normal with his mouth?

  47. If the Republican's can't support what is right over their job, then vote them out. It shows they only care about keeping their job rather than being honest and do their job.

  48. The occupant of the WH has been given a Christmas gift, in the delay to send the impeachment articles to the Senate for trial. He now has a window to submit his resignation, prior to being removed from office. There will be no "civil war".
