  • There is NO ONE in the WH, next to Putin's. Puppet, to protect USA and the world.
    GOP CONGRESMAN. YOU ARE AT FAULT OF THIS CALAMITY, DISASTER!!!!

  • One question that ought to be asked is how many Ukranians were killed or injured while funds were being withheld. How many Kurds after they were abandoned…

  • How can you NOT BE AWARE , that your military help is absent ? They say ukrains were not aware to withhold ?………PEOPLE DIED. Was a clue

  • Trump probably wonders why he got away with the Russian collusion and obstruction and why not with "that Ukrainian thing".

  • "Because Russia would react negatively"
    Precisely. Can't do anything that offends daddy Putin. He's looking after all republicans now…

  • PLEASE READ ENTIRE POST BEFORE COMMENTING:  You liberals miss the point.  Quid pro quo is irrelevant.  It is Latin, a dead language, and nobody speaks Latin anymore anywhere in the world outside the Catholic Church.  So therefore, unless it can be proven beyond doubt that Mulvaney, Trump, and Zelensky are all Catholic, this obviously does not apply.  And "Quid" is slang for an English pound.  Try spending that at your local liquor store and see how far you get.  A "Quid" may be good in Great Britain, but don't forget that we separated from them a long time ago.  Stop picking on our Great Leader.  He knows what is best for us.  He is building the wall in Colorado to protect us, one and all.  

    Remember where your irresponsible wild allegations come from.  Wild allegations come from wild alligators, everybody knows that.  What do reptiles know, anyway?  Trump had to drain the swamp to catch all those 'gators and snakes for the moat, so of course the 'gators are unhappy and hate our beloved president.  Walt Kelly taught us they were happy in their infested swamp, where Hillary and Obama left them to run amok like animals.  It takes a long moat along the wall to protect us from those bad hombres, and that takes a lot of 'gators and snakes. Thankfully, dem dare ’gators be hungry, and dey love dem some Mexican cuisine.  (Es muy caliente en la boca.)

    Stop the witch hunt.  Witches are girls, and if you demon rats and mice would come out of your secret basement cave headquarters, you'd see our Commander in Cheese is no girl.  Anyone can see that.  He doesn't even like girls.  He grabs them by the hoo-hah to protect us and keep them away.  You will understand when the aliens come and you do not have your tinfoil lined MAGA hat.  Then you will understand what MAGA really means, "Make Aliens Go Away".

    Like I said in the beginning, Quid pro quo is irrelevant, and that is the symbol of our party, and you aren't invited.  Elevants belong in the circus, and we are doing our best to create a complete circus all true Americans can enjoy.
    However, due to circus-dances beyond our control, some heffalumps is invisible, and that is why we cannot see the elevant in the room.

  • My question is what happens when the ASTEROID hits the DINOSAUR ??? Because Russia say whatever you want is going to be there WITH or WITHOUT Trump . Which means EVERYTHING is going to effect the people here in America .

  • Spanky wants his Moscow Tower, he doesn't care if Putin re-establishes a Soviet Empire, and rolls back across E. Europe, he doesn't care if the US gets caught in another expensive, draining, world threatening cold war with Russia, as long as he gets his biggest deal ever.

  • You KNOW it's getting CRAZY when you see a WU-TANG CLAN symbol on a WHITE MANS COMPUTER being displayed ……………………….ON NATIONAL TELEVISION !!!

  • those state dept and defense people are the true heroes of our time. They have risen to the challenge before them. Too bad, the Republican congress, VP and others haven't done the same. If you are able to read people, if you really listen to people, what's coming out shouldn't be a surprise – but we finally have people who are willing to stand up and tell the truth because they value our country more than power, fear, money and ideologies ( conservative judges). Trump is compromised by Putin and has been dealing corruptly possibly for most of his life – a leopard (sorry leopard) rarely changes it's spots.

  • If that's not being a traitor I don't know what is. Helping Putin attack one of our allies, basically, by making Ukraine way less able to defend itself. Let's just face it he has no shame!

  • My thanks, Mr. O’Donnell, Congressman Sarbanes, Ms. Farkas, John Heilemann. Well done. Please, let’s not forget that Giuliani’s “associates” Igor Fruman and Lev Parnas were in the Ukraine in April, pushing hard, while Poroshenko was still President, and that Giuliani AGITAGED with the DoS, as early as Jan. 19th, about a US Visitor’s Visa for that corrupt non-Prosecutor General Shokin, whom EVERYONE wanted ousted, and who finally got ousted by an Act of Parliament !!!

  • If he has acted in Russia's interest where very often there doesn't seem to be any benefit to the US, almost the opposite, in fact – again the question has to be whether there is the common thread – it can't just about the election interference, although that's what many in the GoP have worked so hard to conceal. While that may have ensured that the Republicans stayed focused on keeping him in office, it has to be something more that even they have known nothing about. Is he privately indebted in some way ….. to Russia – perhaps in a way that, if they had initially known, they would have rejected him completely.

  • Who knows maybe Trump has a quid pro quo with Putin as well . Trump holds up the military aid cash and Putin will let him, and invest in Trump Tower Moscow.?

    14:53 TESTIFY!! LISTEN IF YOU HAVE EARS!!** (I paraphrase: please see Matthew 11:15 for the ACTUAL transcript of … what? Really? Third-hand? But I heard it was the actual Word of … really? So, where is the "First-Hand" witness, the Bible is beginning to sound like a Whistleblower?) **(or hit the "closed caption" option, the Bible missed that.)

  • No the Ukrainians new that joe Biden and is son where involved in criminal activity in Ukraine and so did obama Hillary look all of AMERICA is laughing at democrats cnn msn so disgusting and desperate so gutless how stupid does democrats cnn msn think Americans are i mean dame look democrats cnn msn gist got caught lying to Avery body about the russia collusion hoax and thay expect America to believe them again amazing look msn cnn rateings are lower than Nickelodeon look it up your self why is msn defending these Democratic criminals and traders turmp 2020baby

  • I disagree with what was said a the end of this video, which was that tRump is looking out for his own political interests. tRump's political interests are ALWAYS driven by his personal economic interests. First and always!

  • Can't you be impeached for stealing from charity? That is really disgusting! But then again: Trump is doing/saying something disgusting every day and people still like him. Like the nazis liked Hitler. What can you do against stupid or evil people?

  • Some where in his little brain he actually thinks he will please putin. No Putin will never be satisfied. He will use Trump to wipe his feet and that is all. Wtf Republicans? You know he's being played.

  • I'm so glad to hear people calling the lies this corrupt crime family speak lies and not how they have "misspoken" or what they say is "incorrect." They are lying liars, pathological lying liars. And they are not "alternative facts," as KA Conway suggested: they are out-and-out lies. I hope this is only one truth brought out in these impeachment hearings again and again and again and this criminal Administration makes fools of themselves in broad daylight for the whole entire world to witness firsthand trying to lie its way out of impeachment. They need to get caught publicly, big-time, lying through their lying mouths.

  • Jim Jordan? Wasn't he a wrestling coach that, I don't know, had some issues where he got kind of touchy feelie with the team members? I think someone told me something about him giving rusty trombones to the sophomores on the team. Is my understanding correct on this or what? Any feedback will be considered in the utmost confidence.

  • The republicans chose the wrong pedophile, to lead the republicans in these depositions. Jim Jordan, is as dumb as Matt Gaetz, Jordan acts like an uneducated conspiracy theorists hillbilly. "That's a plus for the Democrats. The republicans chose one of the dumbest congressmen of their cult? This should be a walk in the park. Trump in prison 2020!

  • Cnn is a bag of hot cat crap. Where is any push back by anyone with differing opinions? I'm How many times can this commentator be wrong before people ignore him. WE GET IT. YOU GUYS HATE TRUMP

  • BERNADETTE COSHAN says:

    It is a disgrace to have a president who is so corrupt.
    Americans deserve a president that will work for America and not him self and Putin.
    America wake up and vote him out and all his cronies.

  • SO FAR THERE ARE NOT ONE REPUBULICAN TELLING THE TRUTH, THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO KNOW THE LAWS AND GETTING DIRT ON YOUR OPPONENT FROM A FOREIGN COUNTRY IS AGAINST THE LAW, WE JUST WENT THRU THIS IN 2016 WHEN DON JR. MET WITH THE RUSSIANS TO GET DIRT ON HILLARY CLINTON AND AT THAT TIME FBI SAID IT WAS AGAINST THE LAW HE SHOULD HAVE CALLED THE FBI AND HE DID'NT THEY KNEW IT WAS WRONG THEN AND NOW! FATHER KNOWS HOW START CONSPIRACIES AND THIS GOES WAY BACK ABOUT OBAMA BIRTH SAID HE WAS BORN IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY AND IT WAS NOT TRUE! WHEN TAKING OFFICE ACCUSED OBAMA OF WIRE TAPPING HIM AND HE HAD THE PROOF, WELL WE NEVER SEEN HIS PROOF ANOTHER CONSPIRACY, NOW ANOTHER CONSPIRACY TRYING TO PROVE JOE BIDEN'S SON WAS CORRUPT, SENDING GIULIANI TO UKRAINE AND ANOTHER COUNTRY TO GET DIRT ON THE BIDEN'S! BILL BARR GOING ALL AROUND THE WORLD TO PROVE THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION WAS HOAX, THIS IS SPENDING OUR TAX PAYERS MONEY FOR HIS CONSPIRACIES!! THIS MAN CHEATED ON THREE OF HIS WIVES, HE TOOK MONEY FROM FOUNDATION WHICH IS REALLY STEALING AND GOT CAUGHT, COST HIM 2 MILLION! AS THE PRESIDENT HAS NOT LIVED UP TO OATH HE TOOK TO THE CONSTITUTION, HE HAS BROKEN LAWS AND IS GETTING AWAY WITH IT, YOU OR I WOULD GO TO JAIL!

  • AND it was done in 2018 also we are now finding out before Zelensky became President of Ukraine! The 2016 GOP Platform was changed by Trump on this issue also. This was a conspiracy ongoing from day-one to weaken the US in Eastern Europe! Wow. Trump is a criminal.

  • If President Putin told what he has on Trump! Trump would be Jailed for giving aid to Russia and so much more! What does Putin have on Trump and what has Trump promised Russia’s President! I wonder if it has anything to do with Trumps business towers in Russia! The corrupt behavior is so massive and complex, that it may be sometime before America finds out the entire truth about all of this.

  • Machiavelli Plato says:

    The Javelins missiles are suppose to knock of Russian tanks: that's the expected Russian reaction, destroyed Putin's Russian tanks.

  • so it continues – Donald Trump has never made a honest dollar in his life.
    has never told much truth, he lies even when he doesn't have to.
    has never never reflected anything but entitlement all his life.

    HE IS NOT A NICE PERSON, HE IS A RUDE PERSON . HE IS NOT AMERICAN.
    bottom line he is the bottom and we don't need this.

  • Machiavelli Plato says:

    Russia has illegally annexed the Crimean Peninsula, taken control in the Sea of Azov, supporting an illegal separatist war in eastern Ukraine and shot down flight MH17 murdering all onboard.

  • Donald Trump is possibly going to Russia to the May Day Parade there, showing Russia's military might in that Parade. Sorry Donald they do not have such a parade for just you in the US.

  • Doesn't matter how much you scream extortion or bribery or whatever lie you can come up with won't change the fact what Ukraine officials themselves say. They didn't know aid was held.

  • Uh huh..Where is Trumps money deal like the fem dems are covering up? How many illegal acts has Trump done in collusion with Ukranians and destroyed the emails that proved it? Cmon fem dems…grow some brains.

  • Arnold I am Rudy Rimmer says:

    How many ever expected to see the day the Party of Reagan, would work so hard to clear Russia of wrongdoing? That's what started all of this; a desperate attempt by Trump to clear Russia of blame.

  • Adults know politics is the dirtiest form of employment, only kids are "shocked" at what happens every day with both parties behind the scenes nothing to see here, moving on!

  • They keep saying he is trying to bribe , but he is trying to get Ukraine 🇺🇦 to create a lie a blatant lie, about a citizen of our nation Lie,lie,lie what Trump is, what he does ,and how he runs his thing. Trump lies like the rest of us breathe ,and only people who are like him can appreciate the artist nature of his con. Did anyone see his birth certificate?👀😏

  • trump is not a politician, he's in the business of politics at the moment. He is about what politics can do for him, not what he can do for politics and the people. The people that support him, are completely blind by who trump really is.

  • We have been ahhhhhhhhhhh, hearing the same news , ahhhhhhhhh over and over again. We all know what Trump has ummmmmm, done ahhhhhhhh . OMG Anchor , ahhhhhhh ahhhhhh, stuttering mumbling . Is this the best America has to offer?

  • The media needs to emphasize that there is no dirt against Biden to be gotten. There is only the appearance of possible dirt that Trump wanted the Ukrainians to create by announcing that they were opening an investigation. This is a CRITICAL distinction to make.

  • Richie Tattersall says:

    Professional American Diplomats are doing anything and everything they possibly can to prevent Donald Trump from destroying this country.

  • Can't you see that Russia infiltrate the Republicans thrue Trump ? There is no chance that Trump will be impeach. The Republicans should be impeach…

  • He talked to the president of Ukraine the president of Ukraine said he didn’t know he cannot be extorting the Ukrainian president if the Ukrainian president then he does not know that trump is holding back funding if that were the case

    There are only two parties here the president of the US and the president of Ukraine it’s what they knew not anyone else and they didn’t know so now let’s focus on government corruption in the economy.

  • The highlights of the sworn testimonies of White House senior staff, State and Defense department officials released to date conclusively establish the required elements of bribery and extortion by Mr. Trump. In addition, Mr. Trump and Mr. Mulvaney have made voluntary statements against interest of all the primary defense points House Republicans apparently plan to advance during the public hearings.

  • Gym Jordan is going to provide Fox with the only highlights they will show. He will ask stupid questions, and Fox will claim that the witnesses refused to answer them.

  • FreedomsDmocracy1st says:

    The dirties
    conspiracy ever created by a government.

    …am following what’s going on in investigation of Congress
    whether Donald J. Trump intended whether he conspired against the existence of
    the United State of America in favor of a foreign nation which based on expert’s
    national security opinion based on their researches (and they all had been
    fired by the President), it had been in favor of the President of Russia,
    Vladimir Putin, and found:

    Rudy Giuliani, former Mayor and former New York City
    Attorney, made one of the most dramatic conspiracy against another country,
    this is, Ukraine.

    It happened that the United States had designated giving to
    Ukraine a few hundred millions dollars which Ukraine has to used to protect its
    future from further invasions from Russia which already annexed a large
    territory of it into its Russian soil …and still is figuring out in how to
    direct more attacks to a weaker nation and possible annex more territory of it.

    The United States of America had decided that Ukraine use
    that money to fight, to protect its territory. 
    This is a strategy forged by the USA past government in order to avoid a
    direct confrontation with Russia’s military and political ambitions of
    recuperating former allied lands and annex them to its own Russian’s land and
    USA having to send its own boots in the thousand to fight along side Ukrainian
    militaries that  could end up in a
    nuclear war.  That’s the strategy of
    giving money to Ukraine to protect itself and also US giving advice to them
    sending professionals war combatants to train, help and advise their military
    in war strategies as well keeping a strong connection with US.  Ukraine has a problem but USA ambassadors,
    which are people that heroically protect the interest of US is helping that
    country in solving a rampant governance corruption so they could integrate
    their defenses to fight, protect and win against Vladimir Putin’s strategies in
    dividing that nation and steal its lands.

    President Donald J. Trump happens to admire President Putin
    and had shown great respect and love to Russia which had dedicated its
    political time to destroy the United States of North America, under whichever
    pretext it could find on war or peace. 
    On war, Putin clearly and knowingly understand he cannot.  On peace time, everything is possible.  Donald, as Putin call the President of USA,
    actual, is machining the said above becomes a reality.  Due that all the security machineries of this
    country, USA, had foil Donald intentions and the opposition party in government
    has sufficient data on the above, Donald is been impeached in accordance of the
    Magna Carta, this is, the Constitution.

    Giuliani, a lawyer, hired by Donald, had forged a plan to
    fabricate that it was not Putin of Russia who intervened against the elections
    on November 2016 but, Ukraine.

    The GOP, this is, some members of the political Republican,
    are following Giuliani strategy: follow the line and save the President.  That could end in another winning of the
    presidency in US on the year of 2020.

    Here it is explained how a party with a lot of its leaders
    is going along with the dirtiest conspiracy ever created by others, in the
    government of the constitution, the Magna Carta of the USA.

    WOW!  People don’t
    blink an eye when in respect to their personal interest, the existence of this
    land is at risk, as long they satisfy their ambitions, not the land composed of
    around 350 million of individual.

    This is the greatest conspiracy ever created on this
    country.

    …unbelievable!

  • The witch hunt begins on MSNBC where murderer morning smoe who is hired as a journalist. And Rachel mad cow a Harvard journalist who gets a platform of lies. Where stories are told with no investigation

  • I've read the transcript. There is absolutely nothing in there justifying a crime. He was referring to the 2016 Russian Collusion Hoax and the Biden's corruption.

  • Liberal elites don't feel so elite when this point is consistently being made which they can't ignore:

    They have the same 1-vote voting power as people in MAGA/flyover country.

  • I hope Trump goes to Jail. I hope everyone involved in extorting Ukraine should join Trump in jail. Wait, all the child molesters need to go to jail. OMG, who is Trump working with? Jim Jorden lets adults molest children and now he is working in the government. We need to elect new people who are not child molesters and how are not corrupt.
