  • Democrats must impeach so Trump can't get re-elected. Let this sink in… if the people are willing to re-elect Trump, they are obviously not behind impeachment. I believe after the 2020 election, the Democrats will have a very small minority in the House and Senate. It is then that a reckoning will come for the Democrat party.

  • I guess no one has learned anything the last 3 years. If Trump wants to be impeached that means those doing the impeaching are going to feel pain when it fails. Enjoy the movie.

  • The Judge said in the 75 page ruling, there is material in the redacted material that may be pertinent to the impeachment. BARR and moron will do all they can to not release it.

  • No matter what is said or done next few weeks..we going to vote for Trump..an then we going to vote for the TRUMP FAMILY every election till the end of time. Ya dig?

  • DO USA A FAVOR GOOD AMERICANS!!!! TAKE OUT A LIBTARD. DEM. LEFTIST. !!!! BURY. ITTT. WE. ALL. THRIVE. GOING GREAT AS THINGS BEEN SINCE TRUMP! AND ALLS. HAPPY !!!! Or we could be demonrat Venezuela ! A boy knee state !

  • BOOOOOOOOOM ! GREATEST PRESIDENT EVER. THAT'S HOW YOU DO IT OSAMA ..I MEAN OBAMA. THANK GOD FOR TRUMP. MAGA DEEEEP UP IN A SOYCIALIST 👉👌😂🇺🇸

  • Dadson worldwide says:

    Trump should've done like biden and gotten Miller fired before he questioned don jr. That would've triggered the house into madness lol

  • Fake news and Democrats never accept 2016 election results, time to hold them accountable, justice must be served, law and order 2020 President Trump KAG the hardest working man in America ✌😎

  • RELEASE THE SECRET INFORMATION! IF NO, THEN SOMETHING TO HIDE. #HeIsGUILTY! #TratiorRussianPuppetTrump! #ImpeachTrumpNow!

  • fuckfaceshitforbrains couldn't throw Kelly out of his office any more than it could throw a can of Diet Coke down its gullet or a bottle of Adderall up its nose.

  • William Scott Collier says:

    so when the democrats start getting arrested for committing treason and sedition, are you going to scream it's a political attack by a fascist? Because that's exactly what the democrats are counting on you doing. The truth is, not only did they commit treason and sedition and a multitude of crimes, including war crimes and crimes against children, but they also used americas media apparatus as state controlled propaganda to brainwash you and the American people. Evidence matters. And the media claiming they have proof doesn't matter a hill of beans in an actual courtroom. Do you remember when Schiff claimed he 100% had evidence of russian collusion? Where is that evidence? Seriously, where the F is it? It doesn't exsist….because it's a fable. Just like the impeachment clown show you are witnessing. Do you realize the man cannot and will not be impeached? The President has a majority of support in the senate and the supreme court. It doesn't matter what the house does. Take a civics class.

  • Lmao Trump kills AL.Bagadadi an its not trending on you tube . 7 years Obama couldn't destroy J.V team Trump does in 6 months. Trump has showed last 4 Presidents throttled wars to keep industrial complex going Trump says theirs a new sheriff in town. Greatest president ever. MAGA deeeeP up in a democrat 👉👌😂🇺🇸

  • So suspicious that nobody Rats and Snitches on Obama ..Hillary Clinton and Bill's… their all afraid they'll get assassinated like the last 45 close confidants

  • silvano novalis says:

    John Kelly plays the noble man now, but he is as corrupt as the buffoon's toadies. What a dishonestly callous service man!

  • Trump has always said America is stupid. Example when he said when I get in office I'm going to close ALL the unjustified loopholes billionaires have !!! But instead he keeps all the unjustified loopholes and gives them a huge permanent tax cut!!! What does that tell you America!!! He either wants America to fail or he wants to line billionaires pockets. I think Trump is Brock and indebted with other countries and has no way to pay them back. !!!! Don't trust this evil conman!!!!

  • It's interesting how people can hate Trump so much yet had no issue with bush and Obama killing thousands in the middle East. Is it because the media doesn't talk about that? Hmm let that sink in for a bit. The second he went after the MIC (military industrial complex) he sealed his fate. Ya Trump what a bad guy, trying to end war and grow the economy what a bad guy, orange man bad orange man bad or……..

  • Genaro Johansen says:

    Wonder why democrats have the exclusive right to what is right and wrong, you behave as you are God. I am from Europe and see what you are doing and you should be ashamed of not working for the country but yourself.

  • Gabbard or Bust in 2020! adam schiff is a political hack, you know the guy who knew president Trump was a russian spy…Yet another giant nothing burger from the far left. We told you in 2016 Bernie or Bust, and then you tried to cram HRC down our throats. We are now saying Gabbard or Bust in 2020, and you can not win without us… We WANT REAL CHANGE!

  • should of mentioned that the court was a lower court, and more than likely will go to a higher court and then be overturned

  • how can republicans complain that the dems are holding secret hearings when for more than a year they have been tying up court time trying to keep information secret from the dems and the american public????

  • Thomas Tompkins Sr says:

    Hey Republicans and white house, what happened to complete transparency? McConnell, get out there and fight for release of the redacted report. Hipocrites all.

  • Not every testimony is an Earth shattering revelation. Some of it is just confirmation of earlier Earth shattering revelations. This happens a lot in honest and thorough investigations Patience, patience, please.

  • The fact that anybody still supports Trump is a fascinating example of how cults work. They see Trump as a victim, regardless of how often he lies, or how he gets himself into these problems by doing things that everybody knows and agrees are blatantly corrupt. It's like all these regular people have no idea what ethics are aside from following a leader.

  • TRUMP HAS DONE WELL DESPITE THE INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES SEVEN WAYS OF SUNDAY TO GET BACK AT HIM HE HAS DONE WELL DESPITE THE NEOCON'S NEVER TRUMPER MOVEMENT HE HAS DONE WELL DESPITE THE NEO LIBERALS RECOUNT-AND MULTIPLE IMPEACHMENT ATTEMPTS………………FOR ANYONE PAYING ATTENTION FOR ANY AMOUNT OF TIME LONGER THAN TRUMP'S RISE TO POWER THE PEOPLE MOST CONVINCED HE IS DANGEROUS ARE THE MOST DANGEROUS PEOPLE ON THE FACE OF THE PLANET.

  • as always the truth shall come out and it wont be what you want. you would rather believe lying dictators than the truth.

  • Why is there so many secrets in the DOJ? Trump and Barr latest strategy is about to turn ugly, my guess is that Barr on Trumps orders will start (Trumping up) FAKE Charges and arresting on a lot of career CIA and FBI professionals in an attempt to snatch the country attention away from the impeachment that's certain for both of them.

  • All over the world right now there are massive protest of people standing up against prop government for the United States apparently we're okay with it. We talk can you talk on social media but we don't put our money where our mouth is. Even today there is yet another mass shooting. The body count is growing and growing but nothing seems to faze people in this country. Will it just continue to talk and talk and talk and do nothing while people are dying and while democracy is being assaulted. If we keep on this truck one day we will no longer be a superpower and we will not allow another country to control us.

  • Testifies to who? Demon rats who then do selective leaking to the traitors of MSM go puck yourselves right into a lawman net.

  • I'm glad they're doing the investigation behind closed doors, the republicans turn everything into a circus and lie about the facts so that their dumbed down base believes their lies. Can't do that when it's behind closed doors.

  • News flash…. impeachment inquires have been conducted since he was sworn in. Lame actions taken by desperate people, in an effort to push personal agendas.

  • The more troll remarks I read, the more convinced I am that Trump is working for Putin. No civilized human talks like that. Only Trump's haters and his U.S. hating russian trolls. God Bless America! Impeach!

  • MSNBC and their Russian collusion klan of slave owners will say and do anything to protect their greed #HowDemocratsStarted

  • When congress sees the full Mueller report it is going to be very bad for Trump. Same for Barr who is responsible for the redactions.

  • Russian Trolls have invaded this comment section. #45 is guilty and he is Putin's Puppet. He will be impeached. Vote Blue in 2020!

  • Top terrorist dead and promises made and promises kept. I’m just glad these clowns led by pencil neck Schiff didn’t get in the way of republicans getting the job done .

  • 1wildwackywoman says:

    Watch at :50. Geezus! Unbelievable! This lie is so blatant. So obvious. This pathetic excuse of a man is beyond ignorant. He truly is insane.

  • “If we do not fill our mind with prayer, it will fill itself with anxieties, worries, temptations, resentments, and unwelcome memories.”

    – Scott Hahn

    "God is more anxious to save us than we are to save ourselves, and he has given us all the means required to embrace him and abide in him unconditionally. Only one thing is needed: our consent, which must be re-ratified every day, through every choice we make."

    Fulton Sheen

    Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat (or drink), or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they? Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span? Why are you anxious about clothes? Learn from the way the wild flowers grow. They do not work or spin. But I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was clothed like one of them. If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith? So do not worry and say, 'What are we to eat?' or 'What are we to drink?' or 'What are we to wear?' All these things the pagans seek. Your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom (of God) and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides. Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil.
    – Matthew 6: 25-34

    Consider the five questions below:

    1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

    2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

    3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.

    4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

    5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.

    6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.

    The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers.

    They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten.

    Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

    Now consider these questions:

    1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.

    2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.

    3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.

    4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

    5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

    Easier?

    The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money … or the most awards. They simply are the ones who care the most.

    Take time to think
    – It is the source of power.
    Take time to play
    – It is the secret of perpetual youth.
    Take time to read
    – It is the fountain of wisdom.
    Take time to pray
    – It is the greatest power on earth.
    Take time to be friendly
    – It is the road to happiness.
    Take time to laugh
    – It is the music of the soul.
    Take time to give
    – It is too short a day to be selfish.
    Take time to work
    – It is the price of success.
    Take time to do charity
    – It is the key to heaven.

    "For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be" (Luke 12: 34)

    Let nothing disturb you,
    Let nothing frighten you,
    All things are passing away:
    God never changes.
    Patience obtains all things
    Whoever has God lacks nothing;
    God alone suffices.

    – St. Teresa of Avila

    You don’t have to be clever to please Me. Just speak to Me as you would to anyone who cares about you.

    Are there any people you want to pray for? Tell Me their names and ask for as much as you want. I am generous. Trust Me to do what I know is best.

    Tell Me about your pride, your touchiness, your self-centeredness, your laziness. I still love you in spite of all your faults. Do not be ashamed in My presence. There were many saints in heaven who had the same faults as you. They prayed, and little by little their faults were corrected.

    Do not hesitate to ask for blessings for body and mind, for health, memory and success. I can give everything.

    Tell me about your failures, and I will show you the cause of them. What are your worries? Who has caused you pain? Tell Me about it. Forgive them and I will bless you.

    Are you afraid of anything? Have you any tormenting, unreasonable fears? Trust yourself to Me. I am here and will not leave you.

    Have you no joys to share with Me? Tell Me about them. What has happened since yesterday to cheer your spirit and comfort you? Whatever it was, big or small, remember that I prepared it for you. Show Me your gratitude.

    Are there temptations bearing heavily upon you? Yielding to them always disturbs the peace of your soul. Ask Me, and I will help you overcome them.

    Well, go along now. Get on with your work or play. Try to be humbler, more submissive, kinder to others. Come back soon and bring Me a more devoted heart. Tomorrow I shall have more blessings for you.

    It's a Middle-Class Boom — How Americans are Really Doing Under Trump Economy

    “The median or average-income family has seen a gain of $5,003 since Trump came into office. Median family income is now (August 2019) $65,976,” Steve Moore writes for Fox Business.

    “Under George W. Bush, the household income gains were a little over $400 in eight years, and under Barack Obama the gains were $1,043. That was in eight years for each. Under Trump, in less than three years, the extra income is about three times larger.” Thank you President Trump God bless you and the USA 🇺🇸.

  • Dem Leaders who support nobody, don't work at work, support open borders, sanctuary cities, socialism, regulations, higher taxes, taking away my gun rights, and investigations that prove time and time again to be wrong. That's never going to win the public's vote vs. The Best Economy in History Right Now. Whoever backs trying to stop that is NUTS.

  • an appeal to this ruling has already been issued delaying the ruling and congresses obligation to executive oversite STILL further. trump's personal lawyers, the Whitehouse lawyers and the DOJ are ALL working on trump's behalf, NOT on the behalf of the country or the constitution.
    and there's yet ANOTHER problem here. the DOJ, the state dept and the dept of defense and the heads of these depts. have ALL indicated they have illegal sworn allegiance TO TRUMP, an individual, and are willing to violate their sworn obligation to allegiance to the country and the constitution. this of course is one of the 2 TRUE definitions of treason; 1) giving aid to a foreign govt in time of war and 2) swearing allegiance to an individual over the constitution and the country.

    we have rogue govt dept heads ordering their now rogue govt agencies to protect and comply with the demands of a rogue "president" rather than fulfilling their constitutional oaths to protect the constitution and act for the good of the nation. this just gets more DANGEROUS and FRIGHTENING by the day.

  • If a credible Journalist still existed on this planet, we would have some legal experts explain case law on hearsay of eavesdropping on half a phone call. The 'Whistle Blower' fabricated an opinion based on half of a phone call, purely speculating on the other half, that he could not hear. There could also be some funny comedy skits about eavesdropping on half a phone call, speculating on the other half, and drawing a totally opposite conclusion to what is revealed by listening to both sides of the phone call. Where are Comics and Journalists when we need them? The fake news media is so biased and corrupt they will twist any trivial thing into an anti-Trump smear. Trump should make truth, fairness, and facts in journalism, preserving the spirit of the first amendment a major election issue in 2020. Fake News media has turned the US Free Speech 1st Amendment on it's head, and using it as a tool to manipulate, fool, and fraud the US public with a Tsunami of Fake News. The Fake News Oligarchs are a RICO Fraud syndicate with far too much control by far too few, biased and corrupt actors. The Fake News industry needs reform, regulation, and to be broken up to fix the political corruption, economic turmoil, and incompetence, which they create.
