  1. Democrats EXPOSED themselves and now it backfires them. They exposed themselves as defender of corruption. If they are serious about corruption, why they don't allow Hunter Biden to present himself before impeachment as he was BOARD MEMBER OF WELL-KNOWN CORRUPT COMPANY. They shift the goal post from quadproco to bribery…. Democrats defending quodproco, corruption and bribery of Joe Biden in the name of impeachment

    If they are serious about quodproco, corruption and bribery they must first investigate Joe Biden and Haliary Clinton. Because charity begins at home

  2. This constant obsession with Trump's personality is a joke. Every time the Democrats embellish a fake charge, we hear about Trump's personality and how it contributes to the problem.  Enough. This impeachment is bogus. The Russia collusion story was rubbish. The real story is that even with the constant attacks Trump has done and is doing a great job. If you don't like his tweets don't read them. I don't. They are hardly newsworthy. What is newsworthy is the threat to the constitutional order caused by Democrat obsession with Trump. Trump's personality is not responsible for the reprehensible conduct of many in Washington to undermine him.  They are doing from their own mean spirited hatred of Trump and the people who elected him.

  3. Only the dimwitted will listen to Adam "Shifty" Schiff and believe that the witness Sondland actually said their was a military assistance quid-pro-quo. The further impaired will believe that the President acting upon a quid-pro-quo for the good of the country is illegal. Common Core "education" has destroyed this America.

  4. 3 cheers to A. Schiff for an eloquent closing statement today! THIS IS my country: a country of ethics, principles, and integrity. and in the words of the late, great, Eli Cummings, "DO THE RIGHT THING! I proudly
    ask my fellow Americans, let your conscience be your guide.

  5. Impeachment hearing update and foreign aid November 21, 2019

    Seems politicians agree that “Quid pro quo” is a Latin expression used in a legal context.   It means “this for that”, indicating the type of arrangement where two parties agree to make a mutual exchange.  This is given because that is expected.

    Then by definition; the United States Foreign aid approved by Congress is also “Quid pro quo” to each country given, as it is expected that the given and accepted aid will produce a democratic republic adhering to Untied States of America values. [as stated during hearings by congress members]. If the aid was not given for that expected reason the opposite would be “pro bono”, another Latin expression used in a legal context with contrary meaning.   It means literally “for good”, and perhaps is akin to “for the sake of the greater good”.

    In the hearings Congressional members admit aid is given on a “Quid pro quo” basis. [As in that given to Ukraine with the expectation that Ukraine did not fall into Russian control, but become a democratic republic US ally]. Appears used for years as a normal US Government practice the “Quid pro quo’ is not an illegal or impeachable action.

  6. Mexican say this was their land belong to them and they put hatred in their own race about the United States and that they paid the price to form this Country. This world belong to you and me but this Country belong to the United States of America where our brave and our proud soldiers fought a war for our freedom and not so that other Countries would try and change our way of life. And No I am Not a white Racist, I am Mexican born in the U.S.A.

    We all knew Trump was not a polish politician like all bread politicians in the game. We all knew who Trump was and we also knew what kind creator he had. He was voted for his is promises to make America first changes for the best of the United State of America and to put our American citizens first. Trump has done more than other Presidents and we know the Demarcates want to keep in power to keep doing their dirty work as to gain power and give favoritism just like other corrupt Counties. Wake up American our flag is very indeed changing it’s colors.

    Wake up people if we let this impeachment happen our President we the people will have no voice. We should be stronger than the government and congress because it’s all about we the people of the United States of America.We the will have no voice because people that was not even born here and have habits and believes in other way are trying to have us change their way and don’t even know or care about our history they are louder then we are…WAKE UP PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES it’s time to shout.

  7. Literally almost everything Nunes says actually applies to his own party, rather than the opposition. Typical of a Trump era strategy- accuse everyone else of the crimes you’re committing yourself. Embarrassing.

  8. 🔴 Simply go to:

    🇺🇸 05:39:00 Turner’s statement

    🇺🇸 06:00:00 Stewart’s statement

    🇺🇸 06:36:01 Jorden’s statement

    😱 At 06.47:01 Maloney constantly baggers then steers, coerce Mr. Sondland into saying things for the sake of soundbites to further smear a sitting president.

    🇺🇸 09:21:01 Nunes sums it all up.

    🚨 Schiff cheery pics Sondland’s written testimony to make it sound worse than it really was. And laces his comments with conjectures and assumptions.

    US Courts are not run this way, and for good reason.

  9. Having apparently never said 'quid pro quo', but immediately upon finding out that a whistle blower has exposed the 'deal' referencing this phrase, Trump explicitly says "no quid pro quo" and the foreign aid which was held up is suddenly released. I think a person could steal a vehicle in front of Republican side of this committee and between them prove so useless and pointless as witnesses the crime would go unpunished.

    Did Trump really have to tell, who knows how many, maybe a thousand lies before anyone finally got to take him down!? And if the factual evidence isn't enough, the hours upon hours of his 'defence', through a complete lack of argument, going over the same questions, revealing absolutely nothing new, not to mention the utterly disgraceful immaturity on show ultimately only weakens an otherwise frail (I'm being kind, it doesn't exist!) defence. They showed themselves up to be equally dishonest in pretending they believe in what they're fighting for, and are a disgraceful, despicable excuse for, actually forget 'politician', they're an embarrassment to any 'professional' irrespective of career.

    How utterly disgraceful has politics stooped where (I would guess) the single most dishonest, nihilistic, petty, atrocious excuse for a man can lead a nation. And not some two-bit, third-world, poor nation but one the size of America! I'm pleased for the safety of the world, the good of the planet and the benefit of a nation that he will be removed.

  10. Again and again, the republicans kept asking for the whistleblower. I, like many also wish they would appear, but seriously, is it so hard to understand that they feel endangered by the man whom has made multiple threats against them, who also happens to be the most powerful man in the world. Seriously, their attitude just demonstrates a complete lack of empathy… It's just upsetting.

  11. this presiden is russian trojan horse, lean on russia for help with elections, outsource national security, take money from russian speaking oligarchs, allow russian propaganda in English, and we have what we have

  12. So on top of the withholding of aid under specific conditions intended to benefit Trump's personal political position, which is illegal, Trump's act of withholding aid at all was illegal. The law was cited on that fact. Congress is the only entity that has that authority, so if the POTUS wants to withhold aid, he must get their permission. Congress did not give their consent, so Trump broke the law. Whatever other excuses the Republicans and their base and their media want to make, Trump broke the law, and he further used that unlawful act to attack a political opponent in an upcoming election. If you dispute those facts, then you dispute reality because it isn't convenient for you to accept.

  13. It makes perfect sense that the Democrats does not like president Trump before he got elected in the 2016. Bottom line is that the president Trump should not and will not be impeached for doing nothing wrong. They have no real evidence that Trump did anything that makes him wrong. Trump wanted to put a hold on the funds because of the safety of the country and the other country got the funds and there was no interview and also why doesn’t shifts release the whistleblower blower or least let the other side no who it is it’s only far since the president supposedly is being impeached because of this supposedly person coming forward and telling lies

  14. 2hrs7sec.–poor Mr Goldman has that look on his face like a father trying to explain something to a child. Sondland is a very exasperating "adult".
