  1. Republicans used to be conservative but now they are throwing pizza pie boxes on the floor for whatever reason I don’t know

  2. What about the Lindsey Graham defense, that he can't credit or find out if the White House has a coherent foreign policy at all, affectionately known as the "You can't convict the President because he's a moron" defense?

  3. It is stated very specifically in the US Constitution that bribery is in fact an impeachable offense. It's right up there with treason.

  4. Ari – Dude… You're a lawyer. You just said it was "legal-ish". Yikes. It's entirely not legal. You're giving the Republican party the fuel to auction off things to internationals for dirt on local politicians. Now it becomes something future presidents and their non-state minions will attempt regardless of party affiliation. You've opened the door to attacks against our Constitution. What the heck are you doing?! It needs to be nipped in the bud now. Stop even implying it's even seemingly legal. It's not. Extortion on the part of the president at the cost of our country is illegal. Intent is obvious. Fix this, sir.

  5. Trump is a known bully. He tried to bully the new pres of Ukraine. How could you do more damage to US foriegn policy? Maybe give up Syria to Russia. Nancy was right. All roads with him lead to Putin.

  6. 45 Committed Extortion And Bribery For His Own Personal Gain… 45 His A Risk For The United States Of America And The Free World National Security…

  7. How Many People Are Imprisoned For Attempt Robbery Or Any Other Crimes. Not Because They Didn't Finish The Act Its The Intent.

  8. Again the question…how much bribery is too much for an elected official to suborn before becoming criminal or impeachable? In most honorable governments it is a zero tolerance because of its corruptive effects.

  9. They did pull it off…for months…the only reason the aid was released was because the plot was discovered and exposed in the whistleblowers complaint. They didn't come to a reckoning that freezing the aid was wrong, it was the fact the jig was up that provoked the release of the funds.

  10. Religion is use to control weak minds. Why are we not concern that people are sleeping in snow in America. Americans spend time pointing out fault of people who are never meet while ignoring the germy racist we live with. Racist are so obsessed with their war against black people until they lost the role as super power to China. I love it. These psychotic, ignorant. Arrogant, coward bullies are going to lose it when they learn the truth. They will continue to implode. Murder of blacks is a sport in America,

  11. SO if someone tries an ASSASSINATION and it fails NO charges will be made and Trump will just forget and forgive…………RIGHT? hahahahahahahahaha, so says the TOOTH FAIRY and the MADD HATTER!!!!!

  12. Impeached on intent ? How unfair , because his plan didn't work he must not be impeached . Planning to committ a crime is not a crime last i heard Lol

  13. How can planning a crime be Illegal go trump 2020. The Dems are hysterical . Tds . Just kidding . His supporters are actually criminals or brainwashed cult members like Ted Nugent.

  14. For anyone still clinging to the hope that Nikki Haley was the still-beating heart and conscience of, or, indeed, in any manner better than the eunuchs Trump has created throughout what once was, the Republican Party – bad news.

  15. Join the Ted Nugent guns club. After Trump is gone Raids on Ted Nugents and Timothy McVeighs of this world must be done carefully and thoughtfully . Ted Nugent types represent a present and growing danger. Suppressing these types must done by disarming them , disarming them might mean smsll wars that will have to take place to destroy these weekend warrior militias .The government stuffed up at ruby Ridge etc and must be careful how it goes about cleaning up military assault weapons. People are emboldened now and will protect their guns like it's a matter of life and death. It will be a very emasculating experience for Ted Nugent types of this world .

  16. IMO, Pelosi believes Republicans will win support with the "inappropriate" vs "impeachable" argument. I think she wants it that way. I think she's ignoring other impeachable conduct which was being investigated before this Ukraine scandal broke out, putting all her eggs in this one Ukraine basket, and opposing fighting for enforcement of subpoenas in the courts because she wants Trump to remain in office until the end of his term. She has done everything she could to undermine the House's cases against Trump until this Ukraine scandal came up. At that point she HAD to allow a floor vote on the impeachment inquiry. And since then, she has even publicly stated that it wasn't a vote to make the impeachment process official!

    Someone in the House needs to threaten her with a resolution of no confidence. That person should tell her that he/she is going to point all the things Pelosi has done to insure that Trump doesn't get removed from office. She is trying to put party over country just as badly as the Republicans are. She's playing pure politics with this and abrogating her Constitutional duty. Supporters of impeachment have praised her for being so smart and tactical. Well, yeah, she is, but not in the way they're praising her for. I think she should be removed as Speaker of the House and replaced with someone who will actually kick some butt on this.

  17. I think the Republicans Party. prepared a cue, to take over the country. The plan seems to be , to eliminate all other parties, especially the Democrats. They may have been planning it for a long time, that’s why they backed up Trump, because they new he is Power Hungry.

  18. Some reporters didn´t learn from the Mueller report, and are still desregarding the facts and the law, in favour of the show business. It is only a part of it.

  19. She said that BRIBERY was one of the two impeachable crimes specifically named in our Constitution.
    The other is TREASON.

    The authors took it THAT seriously. Will we?

  20. Please, PLEASE, Ari! Go back to Jan. 19th, when Rudi Julie first pressured the DoS to hand corrupt non-Prosecutor Gerneral Shokin a visitor’s Visa to the US!!!

  21. AND … he bribed the Ukrainian president WITH OUR @#$%ing TAX DOLLARS!!!!

    Which apparently he pays NO TAXES!!!

    That really makes me SO angry!

  22. OK, the Impeachment vote gets taken and even on party lines, Pelosi has the votes to impeach. The case goes to the Senate for a vote for/against conviction; Lindsey Graham is already saying he will not be an "honest juror", indicating that he will not vote to convict Trump in any case. He only needs thirty three other Senators to take that line and it's over- no conviction, all the effort for nothing- maybe, just maybe it will cripple Trump's re election, but I doubt it will even raise any eyebrows among his base; as a matter of fact it will likely trigger them to bring all their kinfolk to the polls. The one chance the Democratic party ever had to eliminate Trump and his cronies is at the ballot box, and it will likely need the biggest "get out the vote" campaign ever mounted to pull it off. Afterwards, if the DNC doesn't get it's act together and purge some of it's stinkers and become the party that can get the nations business done, the Trumplicans will be right back. None of this is a guess, no tea leaf reading- this is where we are and where we are going. Trump wanted or said he wanted to be a change agent- he wasn't a change agent for the betterment of the US, but he may become the monster under the bed that forces the Democratic party to change for the better- and I hope to a more centrist philosophy that gets us away from these disastrous swings from far left to far right.FR PS; We have to do better in the statehouse races also- this is where the Reps real deep power base is, especially in the traditional South. In my state the legislature has looked a lot like this bunch in DC for quite a while.

  23. If the people who call themselves Republicans in the United States Senate do not vote to remove Trump from the office of the President of the United States, those individuals should be required to Register as Agents of the Russian Government. They must also be removed from the United States Senate, because they will have demonstrated that they no longer represent the States that elected them, unless those States also represent the Russian Government.

  24. It is not Bribery!!! It is Extortion!!! The Aid Package was withheld for a considerable period of time by Trump after the Aid Package was approved.

  25. The entire World praises GOD to have the American People elect such a Stable Genius President becoming Kaiser of the Empire. To keep Peace on earth by creating such wonderful KinderGardenGames to paralyze the great Nation of USA. Praise the Lord!

  26. Mom of a Dem. – 'if you friend jumped off a bridge, would YOU?' – 'No, Mom"
    Mom of a rep. – 'if your friend jumped off a bridge, would YOU?' – 'SURE THING!!!!!!!!'
    All reps will go down (on…..and) with tRump rather than cross him. IDIOTS………

  27. Yes get away with the term "quid pro quo". Trump's base probably haven't even looked the definition up, and those that have, dont know what the word bribery means all of a sudden.

  28. Hello officer if you do this for me, I'll do you a favor

    Hello citizen i wont write you a ticket if you do me a favor

    Mr Ukraine president, I'll give you military aid if you do me a favor.

    Bribery clear and cut. A police officer would lose his job for accepting or proposing a bribe

    The founding fathers intended on a president being removed from office for bribery (accepting or proposing)

  29. If Trump isnt removed from office. Republicans are making a stand in American history to say "It is ok for the President to make and accept bribes." They should be very careful at the type of precedent they are making.

  30. If Trump isnt removed from office what does it tell him. It tells Trump he can keep doing it over and over again. It says that anyone afterwards can accept and make bribes. It says the police, judges, and anyone in any office can do it.

    Trump is so used to breaking the law and doing shady "deals"… He doesnt even know he's a criminal anymore.

  31. if it was about Ukrainian corruption in general ( as they insist )…..produce all the records of the other hundreds of other targets they had in mind……oh wait…….Biden was the ONLY target in mind all along ?……..yeah……kind of hard to prove a fake story about a single target was the one and only threat to national security that held up all those millions in aid ( to fight Trumps friend Putin ) The aid was released yes…..but it seems it might have been Bolton who released it against Trumps wishes ( and he was fired for it )…..Bolton is willing to testify .

  32. You have to be pretty desperate if your best defence is that the President is too inept to properly bribe someone. It's bad enough that he even attempted. Don't the GOP want more from a President (and the leader of their own party) than an inept criminal? Is that how highly they view the highest office in the country?

  33. Hailey Trump please pretty PLEASE I am your Vice President. I have PROVEN my ABSOLUTE WORSHIP by my ABSOLUTE LOYALTY. KISS KISS OH MY I TASTE HANNITY

  34. It’s fantastic to see so many more intelligent women invited to speak. Our daughters need role models. Thank you!

  35. I never seen a fact finding mission lasting 3 years on a pres for impeachment..3 years with no physical evidence-based proof..come on trails on murder are shorter..dems need to be fired and a better class of people that can do the work for America..no wonder nothing gets done..u do the math

  36. Nikki Haley, You are next! No matter how you get trump to throw Pence under the bus so you can be a candidate for VP. You won't accomplish your goals, Mata Hari!

  37. did everyone forget Edward Snowden ? he lives in Russia ! you don't think that Putin has torture him in any way ? sure he did. he my given Putin all he needed to huck the elections . remember . He is there, can't leave . You think Putin is just nice to him and let him live there ??? you got to be kidding me. he is singing like a canary . I hope someone read s this and gets notice of what I am saying hear. just my observation .

  38. lessen to the opening statement . he only released the aid after the whistle blower . he got cut. you news people need to pay attention to details , like the beginning of the hearing .

  39. Trump’s fans don’t care if he is proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to be guilty. They will say he was framed, or that what he did was not illegal, or that it doesn’t matter. Us non Republicans wouldn’t back anyone that was a crook like this, even if they are in our party. Conservatives don’t care what their side does, they will defend the party and it’s politicians to the end.

  40. I will no longer vote bff or the republican party. I now see that those in power all lack integrity, MORALS and values. The constitution and democracy are in jeopardy not because of Trump but rather the entire republican party members

  41. Devin Nunes met with former Ukrainian diplomat Andriy Telizhenko who promoted conspiracy: report

    Rex Tillerson’s Company, Exxon, Has Billions at Stake Over Sanctions on Russia

  42. it is becoming apparent
    that EU/NATO wants to run American WH/POTUS as per the wishes of EU/NATO but
    not as 'AMERICA FIRST' agenda of Trump, …. these European-Americans owned and
    led main stream media (msm) in the US working as a catalyst to the EU/NATO
    agenda against America, …. these ‘European-Americans’ are bringing socialism
    in America, they are virtually anti-Americans, ….. EU/NATO obviously desiring
    to dictate America / control America  

    this is my 2nd follow up
    comment : it is DEMS/DNC/Hillary/Obama who colluded proactively with Ukraine to
    spy on Trump campaign 2016 to interfere in US elections 2016 but shockingly on
    the contrary they blamed Trump to be colluding with Russia/a Russian agent and
    Russia interfering the 2016 elections ( all this will surface more by Durham
    /Barr and IG report on FISA abuse), … all this explains the very basis of
    anti-trump agenda of of these DEMS and main stream media owned/led by the
    EU/NATO interests, … this impeachment hoax is yet another anti-American
    pursuit by the EU/NATO within America
    pursued by these European-American lobby with its msm channels …… they are
    dividing America for selfish interests of EU/NATO but still not ready to pay America
    for defense by NATO countries, …… EU/NATO wants to control and dictate foreign
    policy of US keeping EU/NATO countries interests over America, …. all this
    previous Russia Hoax now Ukraine Hoax to take down Trump's AMERICA FIRST
    AGENDA, …

    all this DEMS are doing
    to America is pressurizing the US WH to be under control of EU/NATO nations and

  43. Lol.

    Where's that ample evidence of russia collusion adam "the standard hotel" Schiff?!?!?!

    Tis the season, lock em up for
    Treason .

    That goes for u too "no bodys homie , comey"

  44. Everytime they say the money was release all they have to say is there was a report in the news of a report of money being held up and why…. And then two days later magically the money was released…
    And the person that release that money refuses to come before Congress…

  45. If we don't impeach our President for using the power of our Government for self gain in our elections… we Need to give the Whistle blower a metal of honor for saving our Presidents office …. Ukraine President canceled CNN interview concerning the Biden's …. All this credit goes to the Whistle blower and he needs to be honored with a Ticker -tape parade like Nike Haley is saying ….

  46. Haley is just a typical Republican heifer – the kind Republican males like – plain stupid. That's why Republicans are getting STUPIDER AND STUPIDER OVER TIME. Breeding too much with the same stupid heifers and not INTELLIGENT, INDEPENDENT WOMEN! 💪🏼

  47. Take things from the state where the military aid to Ukraine has been withheld. At that point, the deal proposed to Zelensky is:
    "Give me dirt on Biden, and I'll give you $391 million."
    How is that any different from the classic:
    "Give me the construction contract, and I'll give you $100,000."
    And by the way, however the deal finally resolves doesn't matter — the offer itself is criminal bribery.

  48. What about the puppy the Donald said he would hurt if the Ukrainian President didn't investigate? New fact from a staffer who overheard a conversation from a staffer who overheard it from a barista who said his Mom heard it from a guy at a pet store who heard it on CNN. The Donald threatened to harm a puppy! That's the last straw, he's gotta go!

  49. How many people died during that process? How weak did that make Ukraine? Should I call in on the Republican line to ask? These deaf, blind Republicans! They can't be stupid. They are just cold and getting their pockets lined and jobs secured.

  50. The mere fact that Trump conspired to solicit foreign help on a political opponent for arms is illegal (bribery) in his re-election , it doesn't matter wether asked for meetings occur or not or wether the arms was released or not ,the mere fact the removal of an Ambassador , a conditional speech to take out poltical opponent and hiding of sensitive information had occured. This is in itself is a high crime if national security is at risk of self gain.
