  • Donald Trump cared more about investigating his political rival Joe Biden than the fate of Ukraine, according to dramatic testimony from a key witness in the first impeachment inquiry hearing before the American public. As Adam Schiff, the Democratic chair, gaveled the House intelligence committee into session, cameras from every major network carried the proceedings to millions of Americans, some of whom were encountering the allegations against Trump for the first time

      @Mark Turner It's blocking my links - just Google the things I said earlier. That's why people accuse Trump. If only they could offer their unquestioning loyalty to him, like me.

      @Mark Turner I'll let you Google yourself to find Trump and the Clintons being best friends - before 2016 - even him backing Hillary against Obama (praising the amazing job she was doing). It's all theatre, folks.

    2:58 why do they want to oust the whistleblower so bad, he needs to remain anonymous until they decide whether trump should be impeached, after everything is done, until then he could be in danger

    If a country knowingly elects a corrupt president why the heck would they want to impeach him? Being a sex pervert, sucking up to dictators, bribing another nation using millions from taxpayers, nepotism. insulting the world's best. etc. none of this matters a fcuk anymore to the average American. America has lost any greatness it once had in the world. But that's what the people chose.

      Nick but Biden is still a politician and very rich i know trump gave his hotel business to his son and I don’t trust that either but we need to let the corrupt politicians investigate each other and if joe Biden is using is son to get rich and run a political campaign and if Ukraine is paying him they could be influencing his policies and that’s bad

      @susan scelfo Then you understand that the trump admin only released the aid when this blew up in their face correct?

    • susan scelfo
      susan scelfo 21 day ago

      @michael heredia you need to read Morrison's transcript. I read it last night. It's over two hundred pages and gets into the timeline of the release of the security aid.

    • michael heredia
      michael heredia 22 days ago

      @susan scelfo He also said ukraine understood the only way to unfreeze the aid would be to agree to a public investigation into trumps political opponents.

    • susan scelfo
      susan scelfo 22 days ago

      @michael heredia Taylor never said that! He stated the aid was paused and he did not agree with pausing the aid.

    • michael heredia
      michael heredia 22 days ago

      @susan scelfo Yes Ukraine got the aid after trump got caught. If you listened to taylor ukraine understood the aid would not be released until they publicly stated they would do an investigation into trumps opponents.
      "Did any of the witnesses have direct knowledge from anybody that Trump was leveraging aid in exchange for an investigation?" Yep one is testifying that very soon in fact.

      @Seaside Strangler Yeah, surprisingly, Trump proved that you can be both of those things and still be incompetent, corrupt, and a sorry excuse for a human being.

      Also, being able to spell words or form coherent sentences doesn't seem to be a requirement for the aforementioned positions either.

      @Juan David Barahona Gonzalez Trump did nothing wrong . Hunter Biden and his son on the other hand broke the law with the countless favours Biden did for his sons company - we all know that's the only reason they paid someone with zero experience or qualifications 50 thousand dollars a month. And, Trump, is the one being investigated? If you can't see any wrong in that then you need to admit your hatred for Trump is clouding your judgement.

      more like disobeying the law the whole point of a whistle blower is to report what he heard towards congress if he doesn't want to come to the impeachment meeting he doesn't have to come its not part of his job. He or she cannot be forced to the meeting and Peter Welch knows that is just that he wants to influence people or normal everyday people like us to think the whistle blower did wrong.

If you overhear a voice on the other end of a mobile of someone else's call, then you might have simply misheard! They all admit that. Total waste of time and $

    These degenerate democrat politicians discus'd questions merely speculative, they have bastardize'd the law of evidence with conjecture and hear'say, the rule of law is an order made by a judge or court referring to a particular case and not a principle to which action or procedure conforms, they have opted to corrupt proceedings by using the rule of verb;"exercise sway or decisive influence over the proceedings"The democrats are showing themselves to be not the guardians of liberty, but a rabble of renegade's chosen to corrupt the thought and language of these proceedings.

      It's a political process not a legal one. That's why there's no lawyers and why Trump can't face his accuser. The rules are different.

      @Mr RayPhotO unfortunately that happened AFTER Hunter was cleared. The fact that he was cleared by a corrupt prosecutor does not seem to be a narrative Trump supporters go for.

      Mr RayPhotO 26 days ago +1

      You gotta be kidding right..? Biden blatantly admitted to withhold loan money unless the prosecutor who was looking into his son's business affair was fired. For that to not go unchecked is ridiculous in itself. Judgement never had a chance.

    • Andi amo
      Andi amo 26 days ago

      Well, Trump has admitted (and the 'transcript' confirms) that Trump did what he's accused of. I guess that it's just a matter of judgement if he was acting as President or as Trump.

      Andi amo 26 days ago

      It depends on if you think there should be limits on the presidency. You have to ask, if someone on the other side used the power of their office for their own benefit - would you be ok with it. If not, then you should support this.
