    Only fools fight battles they can't win. What is the point of this? They're not gonna get even one Republican Senator. They're damaging the reputation of the party and losing swing votes. But at least they'll be on the right side of history. They're legacy is more important than winning. They have no sense of urgency and why would they? They're millionaires. And while their playing their futile game the middle class keeps shrinking. This ain't about the people It's about power.

    Ambassador Taylor is obstructing justice by withholding Visa's from Ukraine witnesses that want to testify on the record in this circus act.
    I ask why obstruct justice?
    Lets hear it all, good and bad. Who is Taylor protecting? Biden, Obama, Yovanovitch, Schiff, Pelosi.
    This surely runs deep into the criminal democratic house members.

    Kent can't put himself 'into the mind' of Zelenzky. I wonder why he feels able to put himself 'into the mind' of Trump? This is a disgusting waste of time and taxpayer money. ALL of this costs money. These shenanagins are ridiculous and I wish these idiots would get to work on the REAL issues that we face in the country!!! STOP WASTING OUR MONEY!!! And then they wonder why people aren't supporting the idea of greater taxes!!! They are POOR STEWARDS of Americans money!!!

    Mr. Kentyou should be able to realize that when a person seeks all the means of investigations from other countries it is because he cannot trust the one that he's inbecause the one that is in has been trying to frame him from before he took this title and position as the President of the United Statesthe question is why did he have to go and ask for help somewhere else or from another country

    Democrats push the idea that President Trump did something wrong FOR HIS OWN BENEFIT, to help the 2020 election. The new president of Ukraine wants to end the corruption his country has had; President Trump knows that much evidence is in the case of the energy company that hired Joe Biden's son; and the investigation against them was dropped, according to a "quid pro quo" threat ADMITTED by Joe Biden on television. Democrats wanted to impeach President Trump from the time he was elected in 2016.,FOR THEIR OWN BENEFIT.

    During the Impeachment testimony on 11/13/19, both Mr. Kent and Mr. Taylor answered the Democrat question inferring there was no evidence against the Bidens, in agreement no evidence, even though Joe Biden admitted it.

    President Trump offered help to investigate corruption, he was familiar with in an illegal act by Joe Biden in 2016 and interference in our 2016 elections by deceitful actions; and it is his responsibility to be sure anyone our nation supports by military, money or a White House visit to give them credibility be willing to fight the massive corruption in their nation. It is also his responsibility as president to bring attention to illegal acts of a fellow candidate for president if they manipulate other nations for their personal gain, such as dropping an investigation of Joe Biden's son and the energy company he worked for, if it is done by withholding or paying another nation.

      Esther Sue trump appointed officials saying they heard someone say that they overheard on a phone call that there was. And the someone the officials heard wrote an official addendum stating he didn’t say that. So why don’t you go look at the addendum yourself. That would be too much work though.

    I love how Trump supporters don’t want to listen to the dozens of witnesses (who worked under republican presidents like Reagan and Bush btw), but they would rather listen to their president simply because he represents their party and he’s in office. It’s crazy how this country only cares about political partisanship instead of actually trying to do what is best for the American people.

    • Tejsh Desai
      Tejsh Desai 2 months ago

      Lamech Williams Dude. The reason there was no quid pro quo is because Donald got caught red-handed with his scheme, so he quickly gave the foreign aid to Ukraine so that the Ukrainian President could say there was no quid pro quo since they got the aid. And yes it was foreign aid. The United States didn’t owe Ukraine anything. They just wanted to give them foreign aid (which was passed by Congress btw) but there is clear evidence that Trump held back the Congress approved aid as blackmail to get Ukraine to investigate the Biden’s which is clear abuse of power. Just go watch Trevor Noah’s recent video on RU-clip about these testimonies. You’ll understand everything bro.

    • Liam Will

      Contevent I thought of that too but that’s not gonna fly either based primarily on the fact that there’s no cross examination of the whistle blower under oath and the transcripts prove no such thing. Also no one so far under oath has given first hand knowledge it’s always they heard from others. The Ukraine president himself said there wasn’t any quid pro quo and Ambassador Taylor said as much too. Just saying I am loosing faith in what democrats are bringing to the table at this point, there still isn’t any substantial evidence I am more curious now about Biden’s son and why we give money to Ukraine in the first place since they really don’t do much for the United States anyways.

    • Contevent
      Contevent 2 months ago

      @Liam Will And if you read the transcripts of the previous hearing you'd know this is nothing new.
      What is not hearsay is that money was blocked and the Ukraine was expected to deliver something in order to get it.
      This is Bribery, and the next witnesses will confirm and details the events that led to it.
