  • Common Sense A Super Power says:

    Did you know Hunter Biden being a board member of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma IS NOT ILLEGAL?? He was on the board of directors from 2014 till this year, waaaaaay past Joe Biden's tenor as VP. Secondly Hunter Biden never held a White House position like what Ivanka and Jared are currently doing – and profitting off it WHILE her dad is the potUS.

    When Western governments pressed Ukraine’s new leaders to investigate Burisma, they found no known evidence that any of the investigations ever involved Hunter Biden. Ukraine’s former prosecutor general, Yuriy Lutsenko, told Bloomberg News in May this year that there was NO evidence of wrongdoing by the Bidens.

    Joe Biden, as the Obama administration’s appointed person on Ukraine, pressed successfully for the ouster of the corrupt Viktor Shokin as Ukraine’s prosecutor general in 2016. 

    Why did Biden pressure Ukraine to kick the corrupt Shokin out?

    Because US leaders (which had BIPARTISAN SUPPORT) plus all US European and Western allies, plus the International Monetary Fund, plus the World Bank and many Ukrainian citizens KNEW Shokin was corrupt AF! Shokin wasn't aggressive about corruption, he used investigations to bribe and blackmail people! This is well known, you can Google it or ask Ukrainians. All the Western allies, the US and the 2 giant international banks said they will provide aid to help Ukraine fight off Russia's invasion, but it was important that Shokin be removed to reduce corruption and illegal spending by him.

    In May 2019, Bloomberg News reported that prosecutors in Ukraine had shelved the investigation into Zlochevsky by 2015, meaning Hunter Biden didn’t stand to benefit from the prosecutor’s ouster. Vitaliy Kasko, who pursued the case against Burisma’s owner as deputy prosecutor and is now first deputy prosecutor in the new government, told Bloomberg News that there had been no U.S. pressure to close that case. Former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko also told Bloomberg News that Biden never asked him to close any cases. Oops! OOOPS! So Joe Biden, forcing the ousting of Shokin would actually HURT Burisma!!! Lolololol which would hurt Hunter Biden! Why would a father jeopardize his son's financial interests? Gee, maybe because Joe and Obama DID THE RIGHT THING??? You know when presidents were respected by world leaders for doing the right thing. Even the Republicans were supportive of Shokin's removal FFS!

    Whereas you now see tRump trying to milk world leaders and taxpayers by forcing them to stay at his golf resort for the G7.

    Where did all these BS allegations about the Bidens come from?

    The rumor that Hunter Biden and his father could be complicit in Ukrainian corruption was first aired in a 2018 conspiracy theory book by Peter Schweizer, who is an editor at Breitbart News and part of GAI, a nonprofit group founded by former Trump political adviser Steve Bannon (mainly to spread misinformation). The group’s board chairwoman is Rebekah Mercer, a prominent Trump supporter. But even Schweizer’s book doesn’t allege that any laws were broken.

  • up is down, down is up, facts are lies, the truth is whatever is coming out of my mouth at the present moment, don't believe what you hear, if I lie, its your fault

  • LAW EXPERT WANTED: bcz What ultimately would matter is not our feelings about what he did but the legality of withholding aid to Ukraine until they agreed to investigate Biden.
    If it's legal then we are wasting time, attention and effort watching yet another pony show.

  • Note Mulvaney's careful wording: he denied that Trump ordered him to hold up funds in exchange for dirt re "the DNC server", and "the 2016 election" – But see what he left out there: He didn't deny that Trump gave any orders like that re dirt on the Bidens.

  • Why is this golden raisin still in office?
    This is party favortism at its finest. If a Democrat did even half the things trump has done they would of been out of office a long time ago.
    People really need to stop blindly following a party and start being moderates'. Start thinking for yourself instead of letting someone think for you.

  • Did they?! Are you bigger morons than Trump? Of course he did!!
    You're either to appallingly stupid or stunned to face what's being said straight to your face.
    Media morons.

  • Trump going to tweet out Mulvaney resignation pretty soon. Does anybody notice how hard it is for Trump to say quid pro quo? He's probably thinking squid.

  • Caroline Weimann says:

    Mulvaney tells everything he knows yet there's no repercussion. He needs to be question more by Congress. He said he didn't care who like what he said. He will care when he is locked up and they throw away the key. I hope that's very soon he will sing like a canary. Tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet!!

  • Could you also chronicle the days of Mitch McConnell? He has strategically made moves that will harm this country's citizens for decades to come.

  • Of course the abuse of office will continue, because the spineless Republican Party has done nothing but enable and defend him over fear of losing their own seat of power, not what is right for the country and the people. Its saddens me to say this, I’m ashamed to be a registered republican anymore do to their cowardice and loss of principle. The democrats have been trying to do something but are held up do to constant stonewalling and misinformation from gop colleagues. Which is ridiculous to begin with, they swear an oath to the constitution, country and people and not and never should to 1 man. We seen this happen before in history. What was the results, millions of innocents dead and millions in fear of violence. That’s not democracy anymore thats Authoritarian style government which everyone should be afraid of.

  • It’s not whether there was a “quid pro quo” it’s whether that quid pro quo was for Trumps PERSONAL POLITICAL benefit or for the benefit of American. The fact that it was ONLY to help Trump personally is why it was completely unacceptable and illegal!

  • Gawd, we broke 1,000 days. Ugh. Brian, as I've said before, your reporting is fantastic but the preamble of how many days we have been under this tyrant is unbearable! Please do keep up the great reporting though!

  • Sorry. No take backs. You confirmed what everyone had been known all along! Now, you're gonna be fired soon. Think of your next new job title. Janitor's assistant.

  • YES MULVANEY JUST ADMITTED TO AN DEFINATE IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE BY DONALD TRUMP, AND THEN SAID WE DO THIS ALL THE TIME SO "JUST GET OVER IT." BUT YOU REFUSE TO IMPEACH BECAUSE OF ISRAEL AND WE ALL KNOW IT. LIKE I'VE SAID "YOU'RE FOOLING NO ONE." WE KNOW ISRAELS AGENDA FOR THE "UNITED STATES" AND WE KNOW THE UNITED STATES AGENDA FOR ISRAEL. SO "STOP THINKING THAT THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES ARE "STUCK-ON-STUPID."

  • ChRump is destined to be a failure. A guy who inherited $400 million dollars and blew it. Who had casinos go broke. Who is indebted to the Russian mafia. Who became president and blew it.

  • So quid pro quo when it is military aid is not good, but Not involving our military when another attack from a foreign country into another foreign country is bad too.

  • Henry Martinez1060 says:

    YES, , YES,. THE COWARDS FINALLY TRIPPED UP AN ADMITTED TO PAY TO PLAY CORRUPTION IN UKRAINE . ACTING PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULDN'T RELEASE MONEY FOR PURCHASE OF US MILITARY EQUIPMENT TO FIGHT RUSSIA UNLESS UKRAINIANS DUG UP DIRT ON VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN. THE RATS ARE ALL OVER IN THE ACTING PRESIDENT TRUMP ADMINISTRATION THEY WILL LIE WITHOUT REGARD TO THE TO BE CHARGED FOR A CRIME. WHEN ACTING PRESIDENT TRUMP IS IMPEACHED ALL OTHERS THAT ASSISTED SHOULD BE IN PRISON.

  • When he said “light himself on fire” I spat out my drink thinking someone performed self immolation in the White House and I missed that wild news.

  • TheLongestNa meIcouldThinkOfTheThird says:

    So you guys want to impeach him for investigating corruption, a crook. Biden?
    It's not like he is giving thousands of guns to the Mexican cartel.

  • Юг и запада в отношении в Москве в этом году в Москве и не надо мне ничего я тебе говорю что ты мне очень хотел бы с тобой

  • It's sure a lot of rat clowns snitching on they selves . The tweeting Queen is the main snitch of amerikkkka politics Weirdest thing on Earth would be great career in the kkkkkkra running out oxygen with too many pinnochio 😈 racist😂 😠😡 😂😈 😂 clowns snitching idiots.

  • The administration is now saying essentially, "Yeah, we're crooks. What are ya gonna do about it? Because we'll delay impeachment until the 2020 election, then we'll get reelected by scarcely 25% of the electorate, like in 2016, then we're takin' over, ya hear. So get used to it."

  • f*** off you dumb f**** a**** you know better than to try telling me this fake news bulshit , people with Trump derangement syndrome need to get over it because he's going to be president for 5 more years

  • Where them racist, inbreeded trump supporters at?? What excuses do you have to say?? "Oh it's fake news" gtfoh with that bs nobody is in denial but you

  • Trump hating Proud American says:

    I think mulvaney is so dumb that he believes if he said investigation was about DNC 2016 Instead of Biden then it’s all ok but it’s not at all / still illegal

  • Trump's "Abuse of Power" "Obstruction of Justice" = impeachable to the hilt. Classic Quid Pro Stupid. This CLOWN isn't worth the drama, but USA will recover, stronger than ever in the end.

  • THERE YOU GO AMERICA, REPUBLICANS UNDER TRUMP REFUSE TO FOLLOW THE LAW AND OPENLY DEFY THE CONSTITUTION. WILL YOU SUPPORT THESE CRIMINALS AND THEIR CORRUPTION. THE 2020 ELECTION WILL EITHER STOP THE CORRUPTION OR EMPOWER TRUMP TO DICTATORSHIP.

  • He just admitted to blackmailing practices. "We do that all the time." I keep on seeing pictures of Trump in handcuffs in my mind. 😀

  • Wow.
    The look on Trump's face says it all.
    That's textbook for a liar.
    Look down in shame when explaining lies.
    Okay, I'm ready for something new.
    This movie's gettin' old. Deal with it.

  • yes, don't bring the Kurds to the table after all it is only their lives that are being decided upon. bit like the taliban at the table but not the afghans. good old yankee thinking.

  • Trump said Mulvaney is a good man. Uh oh. That's usually followed a few days later by, he's fired. I barely knew the guy, what who Mulvaney, who that?

  • He publicly tried to enlist foreign aid in domestic affairs. That is an impeachable offense. There is no debate to be had but republicans will fight tooth and nail to protect him.

  • It is funny how people are not even considering that he did it on purpose to shield himself because of all the testimonies that are coming out. If you listen to his statement doesn't anyone find it strange how he stated that he was without a doubt instructed by the president to withhold the aid to Ukraine? He will be able to state later that he only recanted his statement because he was under duress and forced to do so. Does he not have probable cause?

  • Don’t trust Americans as they will betray your trust for 30 bits of silver. Money, money, money is all that matters. i feel sorry for the Kurds who are a progressive people.

  • trump's plan to push for impeachment while he still safe in the senate, what he doesn't know is they came impeach him again. this is not a criminal procedure.

  • I love how "self-dealing" is only "self-dealing" if you can claim an immediate cash profit. The G7 at Doral will benefit the Trump corporation tremendously. Both by saving a financially depressed property AND by the marketing boost they will certainly capitalize on.

  • There's so much here…but "Kurdish Homeland"? what "Kurdish Homeland"? The Kurds never had a homeland! I'm more and more convinced that the US and Europe wanted to keep the mid-east region unstable by setting up another terrorist enclave (the first was isreal), and this is further proof.

  • Progressive Socrates says:

    Since the beginning of the failed/crooked administration has been a disaster. No wonder everyone in this organized crime group has been quitting "for family reasons".

  • There is no thinking and no strategy. Bring in the mental health experts to explain this. Syria is a behavior Trump is well known for-a counterpunch-this time to all the bad press. Now, he's getting even worse press for his counterpunch, i.e. withdrawing from Syria. His whole run for president was a counterpunch for the narcissistic injuries he's received, which he brings on himself. The question is, how far will he go and what is the end game with this crazy president.

  • Pelosi is dragging her feet she knows she's stuck in the mud, and I'm guessing WH is also stuck in the same mud hole, so shooting your own foot is an out maybe?

  • Richard Dastrup says:

    MSNBC cnn is being sued looks like your the next news . Rachel mad cow lies on the Russia collusion. Fake news. No cover on the whistle blower on the Ukraine scandal ties to Biden and the Democrats campaign. Morning murder Joe and side kick mika telling lies to America

  • This pos so called 'President' is truly a disgrace. Your country is sinking into the swamp and taking the rest of the world with it. So scary to see how total stupid, incompetence and blatant corruption on the part of Trump and his cohorts is bringing down your country. Rise up and take your country back.

  • 67 Senators must vote to impeach Dumbo…ain't happening…why slit your own throat?…all white people should think about that issue…slitting your own throat…as Mulvaney wisely says…"get over it"…"squid for blow!"…like a flea market purchase…"forget about it!"

  • Mulvany has been pressured to now lie for Trump…wake up Mick get you a lawyer.,.you told the truth on the quid pro quo…
