  1. Remember this if trump says someone is bad?
    Because he is twisted it means the person is good and not corruptible.
    Remember he calls people who testify “rats”. Joe Biden
    Asked the Ukrainian government to clean up the corruption so you can build a strong democracy and a solid working relationship with the USA. Trump asked the Ukrainian government to become more corrupt to work with the USA. A great democracy must follow the rule of law. As a want to be Dictator, trump must erode the rule of law.

  2. Ukraine should investigate Corruption, really Mr President are you sure, I seem to remember one of your friends who is now in prison who was involved with Ukrainian corrupt former Government, be carefully what you wish for, the new Ukrainian Government might uncover things that will not reflect well on your friends.

  3. "I heard very bad things about her. And I don't know if I recalled her, or somebody recalled her, but I heard very very bad things about her." Makes perfect sense. Got it. lol

  4. Trump, Barr, Giuliani, Pompeo… cockroaches, all of them. The white house needs to be freaking fumigated.

  5. That rambling he does makes my skin crawl 😫 why do we have to decipher what he means every time he speaks. And those tweets 😫 no articulation whatsoever 😞

  6. Apparently Trump thinks no one needs expertise to do a job, not just government jobs, but intelligence and foreign service jobs. I remember the amount of study, testing, and situational interviews to demonstrate the ability to put knowledge into action that it took just to get the opportunity to try for a foreign service job. Obviously, Guliani is not qualified to take the place of a trained liaison.

  7. Shame on America… deep deep shame on us for having a criminal in office with support of 50% of this country. How rotten we turn out to be. Shame that this rat single handedly shows the US to the world like Al Qaeda does.

  8. Rudy is talking crazy like a fox on Fox State TV. I am defending my client by investigating conspiracies ruining people's careers pushing Trump's illegal nonsense.

  9. Wrong is Wrong No Matter Who You Are And That Includes Donald J. Trump !!!!! It Doesn't Matter What Party A Person Is With Wrong Is Wrong And Donald J. Trump and The People in The White House Should Pay For the Wrong They Are Doing to Our Country!!!!!!

  10. Trump fires everyone who is committed to doing a good job, wants to stand up for what is right, or is not engaging in illegal or corrupt behavior. Very bad things.

  11. Rudy giuliani made his career bringing down the mob and yet, he is now a pathetic associate of -wannabe mobster-Trump. Just another day of Republican hypocrisy!

  12. There is no whistleblower. It's just Democrats stepping into another pile of poop. They wanted an impeachment…they got one. Have at it, losers. 😆

  13. What's really sad is most of his supporters will call this fake news and those who do accept what is being reported as truth will have no issues with anything he has done and accuse Joe Biden of being corrupt. SMH

  14. doesnt it scare everyone that non-government citizens know more about whats going on in the white house than our elected officials?Rudi would have to tell everyone what he knows,just to be a big shot.he is a security risk worse than Toyko Rose.and hes still on the loose,hope he doesnt have any information that will endanger our troops abroad and on home ground.

  15. I never understand why Trump is president if the majority of the American voters never voted for him, same question apply for the senate with less votes more senators. Present time the minority dictator corrupt stupid governament rules this country were 80,000 American citizen votes in 3 states are more superior and more important than 3 million American citizen votes in the rest of the country. Time change people change and like everything also USA constitution need to be up-date. EQUALITY for each American, equal vote, nobody is superior rigardless what part of the country people live. The present dictator corrupt president and allies, senate and fox news all they need to be LOCK-OUT including Pence, Barr and Giuliani.

  16. Draft Dodging Donnie here again! LOVE the spot! For 3 years I have posted here and I said: "ME, Draft Dodging Donnie talks to Putin every week.". Journalists spent 3 years asking "Why does he do weird crime in the open things?" For 3 years I have said, "Putin tells me what to do and I do it! Every week" Thanks for finally catching up to me. Rachel figured it out!!! She is on the one and only track that matters. Matching my words and deeds with Putin's. Matching my words and deeds with Putin's…… matching my words and deeds with Putin's! "Putin tells me what to do and I do it! Every week" "Putin tells me what to do and I do it! Every week" "Putin tells me what to do and I do it! Every week" "Putin tells me what to do and I do it! Every week" "Putin tells me what to do and I do it! Every week" "Putin tells me what to do and I do it! Every week" "Putin tells me what to do and I do it! Every week" "Putin tells me what to do and I do it! Every week" Thanks and work harder!

  17. This is more made up crap from the democrats. Trump is the best president we have had in my lifetime. Stop the lying against Trump.

  18. Here's Trump's crime/violation arising from the Ukraine transaction, 52 USC sec. 31021 (along with citations of federal criminal code dealing with conspiracy (you too Rudy . . . Rudy):
    a) Prohibition It shall be unlawful for—
    (1) a foreign national, directly or indirectly, to make—
    (A) a contribution or donation of money or other thing of value, or to make an express or implied promise to make a contribution or donation, in connection with a Federal, State, or local election;
    (B) a contribution or donation to a committee of a political party; or
    (C) an expenditure, independent expenditure, or disbursement for an electioneering communication (within the meaning of section 30104(f)(3) of this title);

    The general federal conspiracy statute is 18 U.S.C. § 371. This statute criminalizes both conspiracies to defraud the United States as well as conspiracies to violate any other provision of federal law. By the text of that provision you can see how the two elements work. The statute says that it is a crime,

    [i]f two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, OR to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose, and one or more of such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy.

    Bear in mind, charges may be brought under each element. Interestingly, with respect to the first element, Chief Justice Taft in In Hammerschmidt v. United States defined the term "defraud":

    To conspire to defraud the United States means primarily to cheat the Government out of property or money, but it also means to interfere with or obstruct one of its lawful governmental functions by deceit, craft or trickery, or at least by means that are dishonest. It is not necessary that the Government shall be subjected to property or pecuniary loss by the fraud, but only that its legitimate official action and purpose shall be defeated by misrepresentation, chicane or the overreaching of those charged with carrying out the governmental intention.

  19. Ooooo woopty doo bassil. Nothing is going to happen to trump. Politicians are above the law. The media is doing it's job quelling the masses.

  20. Ah! So THIS is what happens when a sleazy NYC Real Estate developer gets into the White House. If only someone could have predicted it..

  21. Another scandal Us Diplomats wife driving on wrong side of the road kills a 19 yo boy and then claims diplomatic immunity and runs off back to USA on advice of US Embassy in London. 45 claiming his actions are against corruption prove it send her back to face the music

  22. This was an important twofold criminal operation orchestrated by Traitorous Trump and Putin. Trump is still working to overturn the most important Obama policy to him – the sanctions against Russian oligarchs. That's why they are spreading the conspiracy about a non-existing server in Ukraine trying to blame them for interfering in the 2016 election.

    Trump and his ilk believe that it will help legitimize his 2016 win (it won't). Then they can say see, it wasn't Russia and will remove the current sanctions. Putin's is still pulling the traitorous puppet's strings. That's one of the reasons he has practically the whole administration involved in this particular corrupt scheme. Even going as far as to jeopardize America's national security in doing so.

    The other reason has to do with protecting his fragile ego and his racist base’s desire to obliterate Obama's legacy by overturning all his policies whether good bad or indifferent. They want to leave no trace of the first black president. Totally disgusting and deplorable behavior from the most lawless lying lowlife's in America
    .

  23. They have to win.If they don't win and then run out the statue of limitations then there is going to be a lot of administration people defending themselves in court

  24. I think the hero’s will be Our intel agents and Law enforcement who took an oath to protect and defend The Law and
    The Constitution …
    No president can issue actions that benefit himself because that opens up to blackmail or threats or money laundry or false statements for kidnapping four with holding a for information and LIE
    That can bring danger and devastating consequences to the front steps of the United States of America
    And through policies, working together and The Law …. upholding that Oath can always protect America

  25. It'll probably eventually be time for Senate Republicans to step up and fulfill their oaths to defend our Constitution. If they don't, their betrayal of our country and our interests as the American people will be just as bad as President Trump's. Maybe they weren't on the phone call or in front of the cameras selling out our country's interests, but their silent acceptance of what President Trump did will be every bit as vile and reprehensible.

  26. HE BAITED YOU WITH GIULIANI , WHILE BARR'S, INVESTIGATING OTHER COUNTRIES ! I SEE OUR DOJ IS IN A LOT OF COUNTRIES , MEETING WITH A LOT OF PEOPLE !

  27. Rudy is Trump's private lawyer. It's illegal for him to tell on Trump. That's why the "completely crazy" move.

  28. trumpPAB… I've heard very bad things about her. She is honest. She follows the law. Won't extort Ukraine. Very bad things

  29. Trump, most of his family members and his administration, need to be put down. We'll just tell his supporters that trump and his cronies live on a nice farm now where they'll have lots of room to run, play and commit crimes…. Problem solved.

  30. Think about being a decent middle-aged career diplomat, trying to do a good job, then getting drawn into the web of a corrupt and criminal President who doesn't care what happens to anyone else.
    Only for the grace of God . . .

  31. This is yet ANOTHER blatant criminal conspiracy with a possible unwitting foriegn country to undermine the US and our elections. Trump will NOT get away with it this time. Because he is so desperate to stay in office that HE lost total control. This time he is obviously more hands on and he is putting his foot in his mouth every time he opens his mouth…..OMG!

  32. "Ive heard bad things about her". This seems to be Trump's answer to everyone he fires or simply wants to derogate.

  33. Rudy works for trump he does not work for the American president
    So if China did this he would drop the trade war that's blackmail

  34. lol… no. i'll tell you why there were so many people on the phone call.
    that was trump showing off his mastery of mafia thuggery. he was bragging. he was showing off his elite skills to everybody he could find who would watch.
    and he was sending a message to everybody there, too. "if you so much as say one single negative thing about me, i'll have you framed for a murder in china."
    just watch… he'll have china open up a murder investigation on all of our ukranian diplomats. unless he can think of something even stupider than that.

  35. all these trumpskis are working you, the Dems. the MSM and everybody. It's a scam. It's a set-up. It's a ruse. Probably, trump did not do anything impeachable. Zellenski is in on the show. Trump is taunting the Dems. to impeach. If they do, when the case goes to the Senate, Trump will prove he did not do anything. The Dems. will look like fools and Trump will improve his re-election chances.

  36. They're all shitbird traitors, trump, guliani, Pompeo, Graham, pence, McConnell. . All these turncoats need to be locked up!

  37. Yes that’s the lawyer you want helping you. You know why he is working with him because top lawyers say they can’t take on a client that is going to lie to them and they know Trump doesn’t pay his bills. Trump probably has told Rudy “I paid you don’t you remember”. Rudy probably said oh I am sorry it must have slipped my mind.🥴. That’s the lawyer I want on my side🤣

  38. I heard very very bad things about her..WTF ! No facts from the wannabe DICKTATOR. IMPEACHMENT IS TO GOOD FOR HIM. HE is going to be forced to RESIGN JUST LIKE NIXON. EXPOSE TRUMP FOR THE STUPID STUPID UNEDUCATED BABY THAT HE IS. BRING IT ON……………ONE WHISTLE BLOWER TWO WHISTLE BLOWER THREE WHISTLE BLOWER WHILE REPUBLICANS HIDE OUT………………….GOP ALL COWARDS

  39. So tell me Trump supporters, knowing that Trump was trying so hard to clear Russia and pin things on Ukraine, how can you still stand with an obvious president who has pretty much sold out the very country that he took an oath to represent? This is what most Americans would consider treason.

  40. What's crazy is allowing Clinton to pay an enemy state for dirt on Trump. What's crazy is Biden ADMITTING, ON CAMERA his quid pro quo crimes that Trump is asking to be investigated. Whats crazy is democrats ADMITTING that Biden is above the law. What crazy is not allowing the president to perform his CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY to investigate the crimes above. What is crazy is not allowing due process to ANYONE in said hearing. What is crazy is the democrats thinking we're just going to "let" them just overthrow the will of the people over this cRaZy farce.

  41. Carefully what you put out – because it has a habit of coming back multiplied! Trump wants to silence the whistleblower with a firing squad as a traitor, in so many words! The Left think Trumps a traitor too! There's guns on both sides folks! Trump's not any more invincible than the whistleblower! Anyway you slice it, Trump screwed up this time trying to cheat the election once again, three times! Russia, Ukraine, now China, and who knows how many more?

  42. Trump is such a lying corrupt bottom feeder that he assumes everyone has their price. Looks like he was mistaken.

  43. He doesn't know if he recalled her!!!!🤔🤔an your the president????wow…..👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿

  44. She was arguably protecting not only the laws, and long-standing foreign policy, but Trump himself. But he just can't have that. He needs to be in-charge, and to F$%^ up everything he touches.

  45. Unfortunately it's not at all uncommon to be reprimanded in the government for the crime of doing one's job.

  46. TRUMP is digging himself a big grave. Not just for him, but big enough for entire GOP. But also for the constitution, beyond any recognition for our forefathers. But he is also digging a grave for cooperation between countries and the environment for mother earth. Done by a man who even doesn't show even a dead political opponent respect. We have to ask our selves 3 questions: 1. Is this man above the law? 2. Should this man earn my vote? 3. Do I have the guts to oppose this man?

  47. If State Dept. people had to go through Giuliani to do their work vis a vis Ukraine, then the person who should take the fall here is none other than the Secretary of State, Pompeo. It means he ceded his authority to the president's personal lawyer. Conclusion: Pompeo is either a weakling or a complicit actor. My money is on both.

  48. The biggest issue for this life-long Republican is "Why has Russia not yet paid for their 2016 election crimes against the US of A?" It has become obvious to me that Russia MUST pay! As neither the GOP, nor the WH, has done or intends to do anything on this vital issue; therefore logic dictates that the GOP must lose power and Trump must go.

  49. Gutless trump…..won’t even own up to his own actions! Of course you know that you phoned…..give us a break!
