      @Lynn Wilhoite how about the MAJORITY of the American public KNOW tbis is career pols not liking Pres. Trump and them trying to overturn a previous election and preventing Pres. Trump from a 2nd term (which is a neat death knell of the demoRAT party). Real Patriots are "WOKE". So choke on that for the decade!!

      @AdrienneSupreme Are you on medication or collecting"free stuff". Doesn't sound like you've worked for anything. Otherwise you'd agree CAREER POLS take orders from the COMMANDER IN CHIEF, of whi h they are not. They are to follow Pres. Trumps policies. Obama committed TREASON and his Administration SPIED on a rival politcal campaign. All involved belong swinging from a noose. What a SCHITT SHOW demrats are putting on.

      @AdrienneSupreme But yet you DO waste your time. You think you're so intelligent & above everyone else. Your ego cannot wait to make a vitriolic comment. I get FACTS from reputable resources. You should try it because the NYT is based on their opinions and opinions from other socialists. And that isn't news nor facts. It is propaganda. Wise up! Are you really supporting socialists? History proves what a disaster that is and there's no good method of doing socialism. We're all in this mess together but the truth is that you & others with your perspective haven't realized our President is the only obstacle from this country becoming a socialist cesspool. #TRUMP2020.

    The more we see of Adam's Schiff Show, the more we learn. Foreign aid has become a convenient government financial vehicle for laundering taxpayer money which is pocketed by corrupt foreign government apparatchik recipients who then kickback a portion to corrupt politicians in the US government who enabled the transfer, i,e, Hillary Clinton and her Foundation kickback vehicle. Funneling money to US politician's unqualified, do-nothing family members (i.e. Hunter Biden) appointed to foreign corporate Boards is just one more way to launder foreign aid for the benefit of those politicians who set up the taxpayer money transfers. Why do you think 98% of the people in Washington DC, vote Democrat? Why do you think Trump is vetting and cutting foreign aid expenditures? The Deep State is after Trump for many reasons. This reason is has to do with Trump threatening their laundered foreign aid kickback gravy train from corrupt politicians in places like Ukraine. What works for Baltimore also works for Kiev. Oh, and the media? They're helping the Democrats cover all of this up with hoax show trials like the illegal impeachment hearings totally controlled by Adam Schiff ------> political corruption completely off the charts.

    • Dan Manchee
      Dan Manchee 17 days ago +1

      Wesley K. Without taking any position on impeachment, and in answer to your question, the transcript is hard evidence that shows POTUS asking the Ukrainian president to do him “a favour” by investigating his political opponent, Joe Biden, who he refers to by name. Much of the witness testimony so far is not inadmissible hearsay as they are testifying to direct knowledge of what was being communicated to the Ukrainians and within the State Department. Their testimony goes to fact that POTUS withheld congressional funding for Ukraine to put pressure on the Ukrainian government to publicly announce an investigation into Joe Biden (as opposed to corruption in general). Tomorrow, Ambassador Sondland, who was allegedly central in this pressure campaign will testify, and almost all of his evidence will likely be direct evidence. The hearings are very interesting and would likely answer a lot of your questions if you have time to check them out. They are all on youtube in full. Hope this helps :)

    There is an evil undercurrent in our country that is encouraging the impeachment of the President. It is funded and encouraged by outside forces - the same ones who fund the demonstrations outside of his rallies. Many times, politicians are just politicians for themselves, and their actions are not a reflection of the will of the people. Such is the case in this movement prepared to upset the positive - Christ-centered path - your nation has set upon. Your President has never been given the respect that his office demands by this negative influence of an ambitious few."
    "We must uncover the motives of this ambition which are not towards democracy and the welfare of the people, but race towards the One World Order. Continue to support the Truth and not hidden agendas. Continue to support independence from foreign outside influences employed to undo the strides taken towards converting the heart of your nation in support of the Truth. Do not be fooled by political rhetoric designed to confuse you."
    "This is not a political issue. It is a battle between good and evil."

    Lawyers making statements and having their witnesses who witnessed nothing clients answer "yes" to. Schiff for Brains blocking the questioning of these witnesses who witnessed nothing. Third and fourth hand hearsay "testimony" from three imbeciles who cried about how Trump hurt their precious feelings. Not even a mention of any alleged crime that Trump is supposed to have committed. Schiff for Brains being openly hostile and misogynistic towards Rep. Stefanik. There are your "highlights" from today's session of the Schiffshow. Does anyone take that bug eyed imbecile seriously? Having him on an Intelligence committee is like having Rosie O'Donnell on a talent show.

      Junior C And the previous commentor had no argument either, nor can he differentiate between the House and Congress.

    • I Am The One
      I Am The One 18 days ago

      Junior C He answered the question. That answer was "No". Ratcliffe knew the answer before he asked it, as did everybody else. He knew a deflection was coming and wanted an opportunity to finish making his point. That same question was posed to every witness, and all replied "No". NYT edited out quite a bit of relevant testimony. If you had watched the entire hearing you would have known this. And your ad hominem and lack of any feasible argument shows precisely how weak you position is.

      Tommi Varela This is a dog and pony show. He won't be impeached regardless of the outcome of this hearing because the Republicans hold Senate majority. This is political theater to garner Democratic support before the 2020 election, and anybody with an understanding of politics knows this is a fact. Thats why the Republican representatives and council are trying to assert Trump's innocence through facts and testimony and the Democrats only seek to attack his character through virtue signaling and faked emotional monologues. Smoke and mirrors.
