  • Lawyers for U.S. President Donald Trump will begin his defense at the Senate impeachment trial on Saturday, offering a rebuttal to Democratic charges that he abused his power and previewing more detailed […]

    • WHY? Schiff and his gaggle of morons proved NOTHING. Sen. McConnell should call for a voice vote on Saturday, declare the President has been acquitted and GET BACK TO WORK on matters which are of importance to the American people. This was no more than an illegal DNC campaign show to encourage their low-IQ base to vote in November against a Republican POTUS even though he has done more for America than any previous D’RAT. They know they have NO candidate who can beat Trump. End this mess!

      • You still seem confused about what is going on here, Confused James.

        This impeachment trial is not about whatever good King Donald The Loser may have done, it is about what harm he has done.

    • You do understand this is an impeachment hearing, not a political debate for re-election? It is an unusual defense to claim that the impeachment articles are not pertinent in an impeachment hearing. If you wish to debate Trump’s delivery of promises, I think it would be a better idea to wait until the GDP reaches “4, 5. ,maybe even 6%”, Mexico pays for the wall, America is as least as respected as before the 2016 election, and Draining the Swamp involves more than the departure of those appointed or endorsed by Trump.

    • James, laid out the perfect case for WHY more witnesses and evidence is a total waste of time. The evidence will continue to come out and the Party of Trump will continue to claim they “Hear No Evil and See No Evil” with their eyes and ears firmly closed. They took an oath to not relinquish support even if he shot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue, and by darn they are going to stick to the oath—at least for another year.

    • Good ole syphilis and confuction are ignorant still. They have NO knowledge about anything and yet they want us to follow lockstep with them as they do in the demonrat/communist party. They are indeed “useful idiots” to their party. Today the truth will finally be presented instead of lies and deceit. Do you really want more witnesses when all it will prove is the communist party and it’s mouth piece (shiff face) lied and deceived the American people and the congress. I hope and pray that EVERY house and Senate member that is involved with this charade are tried for treason and put before a military firing squad. An acronym for democrat is WORTHLESS.

    • It took thirteen left wing hacks (sorry, 13 objective , trained journalists) to produce this piece of shiff.

    • Can these bums be impeached for abuse of taxpayers?

  • Representative Adam Schiff, making his closing argument in the impeachment trial of U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday, seemed to have the Senate chamber more or less rapt, with lawmakers listening […]

    • Schiff insulted the intelligence of EVERY American; not just those in the Senate Chamber. He repeatedly lied, twisted the facts, repeated, rewound and regurgitated his lies to suggest the President needed to be removed from Office simply because of his personal hatred of Trump. Schiff is the one; along with hypocrites Nadler, Lofgren and Jeffries, et al (for voting AGAINST aid for Ukraine in FY2019 – $250 million – and FY2020 – $300 million) who need to be removed from Office.

    • Schiff is looking to get tapped for his own reality show. He does love the sound of his own whiny lyin’ voice.

    • Schiff hole relying on Fake News—-how typical—-dufus Schiff.

    • “… a president who would make himself a monarch …”

      Isn’t that what Obama (“The One”) was trying to do? Funny how Schiff accuses Trump of that.

    • “It’s insulting and demeaning to everyone to say that we live in fear and that the president has threatened all of us,” Republican Senator James Lankford

      It’s true, Senator. The whole American Fascist Party members have been neutered by King Donald The Loser and Cult-45. None of you have the guts to stand up to Dear Leader. Even the few touted as possibles won’t stand up for justice now or even decency.

      You fell for his false promises and lies, at first, then you started fearing for your seats. You are between a rock and a hard place and y’all know it. You know your supporters or your party members will turn on you instantly if you waver even slightly with your support of your king. Just look at what happened to Matt Gaetz, recently, if you need an example. But you know that well, don’t you? That’s why y’all cower behind His Majesty’s robes.

      Head on a pike indeed!

    • You are wrong again confuction the unknowing. fascism is on your side of the aisle. ANYTHING that deals with totalitarianism is a left wing subsidiary. Your party is the party of communism, fascism and ALL other modes of one party rule. You think you are smarter than anyone else and everyone should follow you right of the cliff just like the “useful idiots” who voted lenin in office. Your party loves to dictate to everyone all things of life and will stop at nothing to accomplish that goal. Your party is indeed the anti-Christ and is the most evil thing in the universe. Please take shiff hole and put him back up where the sun don’t shine.

    • Easy for Schiff Head to see the comparison between a pike and his pencil neck when looking in the mirror.

    • Schiff’s entire case is a lie. I’m betting this pike thing is too. Just look at the lies leaked to media since Trump won. This truly has been an all out attempt to coup Trump from day one. These people should be charged with sedition.

    • Come on, Confused James. Surely you can come up with a better argument than that.

      Voting on a huge, complicated bill, such as the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), is rife with politics, and you know it. Such a bill will have so much in it that the opposition (or ruling members, too!) are sometimes forced to compromize their morals, ethics, or other standards, to vote for or against something, and you know it.

      Then the other party will try to use that vote against them, as you see here. Didn’t work.

    • Funny. “Take her out” meaning fired is a death threat just like an alleged unconfirmed “put your head on a pike” is. Schiff is full of er, Schiff.

    • More lies. “Trump confidante” is the same as saying “anonymous source” or “we’re making this up” and has as much integrity.

      It’s my hope the Republicant’s have more sense than to buy this BS,.

  • U.S. Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders’ decision to highlight an unofficial endorsement from Joe Rogan drew criticism on Friday due to the comedian’s brand of humor that some see as dismissive of […]

    • The “Bernie bros” idea is a false narrative.

      EVERY campaign, at the local, state or national level, will have somebody, somewhere supporting it that are outspoken, obnoxious, and wrong, especially online. The American Fascist Party has them, the Democratic party has them, and independents have them, too. Get over it.

      There is only one thing that separates Bernie bros from any other group. They support Bernie, therefore EVERYBODY who oppose him points to them and says, “See?”, because they are threatened by what Bernie will do once he is in the Whitehouse.

    • If you buy any of the communist BS then you better seek some counseling on the subject and hope you have a well armed neighbor to bail your a+s out when the sh+t hits the fan.

      • You do realize that all of this communism and socialism crap is not going to convince any young people to fear them, right? You are wasting your time.

        Young people are repressed so much by what we have today that they are searching for alternatives. Bernie is looking pretty good to them, and their numbers are greater than you old guys that ruined capitalism and politics for them. They are getting active politically, now, so watch out. Change is acoming.

    • You can’t really blame Bernie for accepting the support of his base.

    • WOW confuction you still don’t get it do you. fascism is on your side of the room. It is a party of racism, hate, violence and criminals. You would NOT exist as a party unless you had all those things. Your party is socialist and each and every dictatorship is socialist in that they control everything in government and the people. So you can stop lying to everyone now. I will refute you every time you post this lie. You are the party of totalitarian rule and it must be destroyed before this country loses it’s freedom.

    • Genital,

      You ARE confused and a perfect example of cognitive dissonance.

      You are wrong saying “King Donald the Loser”. WE elected him in 2016 and we will again in 2020. He WON the election.

      Your remarks indicate an opposition to royalty YET you support a system where apparatchiks and the elite will “royally” decree how much you pay, where and how you live, what you eat, etc. while reserving privileges for themselves.

      You are confused and I am so happy your paycheck goes to supportvia entitlements those too stupid/careless/etc. to support or care for themselves

      That’s what you want, right?

    • Joe Rogan is a comedian and radio personality. For someone who recently criticized “know nothings and inexperienced” in the diplomatic corps, the Genital is suddenly all about a “know nothing and inexperienced” endorsement for his cult leader?

      Again I say the Genital is confused and contused. Also not too bright and a liar.

      For the confused, VP Pence refers to his wife as “mother”. Yeah… there’s that.

    • James, Screw is the repeated admitted Atheist. Have not read a post of the General sharing his religious views.

    • General from the article, it appears Pence was speaking to being a hero of his family, who remain Roman Catholics. If Pence’s mother is still alive and still Catholic, perhaps he was referring to his actual mother. Like Mike, Karen Pence left the Catholic church.

      • I stand corrected, then. I could not determine if his mother is still alive or not, either. I will have to assume, then, that “mom” and “mother” are not the same person.

    • Re: a missing comment – Why? Are you Atheists getting lonely?” Confused James

      My question was about a missing comment, not whether I am lonely or not. To answer that question – no, I am not lonely at all, although sometimes I feel alone here in my resistance of King Donald The Loser. Don’t confuse that with being “lonely” because that is not the same thing.

    • Every time the DimWitDems open their Lying Mouths , American see them for what they are. They have proven THEY ARE THE ENEMY of our nation and it’s people !!

    • Democrats have shown the country and the world, that they are filthy lying scum, who have abused their powers of elected office in order to over turn the 2016 election. An election they never conceded defeat in, and have continually tried to over turn since Donald Trump won and became President of the United States. I can not believe that there is no mechanism in the constitution or in law that does not address this kind of blatant abuse of power by the Democrats. When will Republicans fight back and have the Democrats answer for their crimes, and pay the price for committing them?

    • Biden is in no way a political threat to Trump however Biden should be impeached for his role of abuse of power bribery and extortion in his getting the Ukraine prosecutor fired and yes he can still be impeached as well as Obama for knowledge and letting it happen if the democrats want to see obstruction they should look at themselves

    • No Mike Pence takes over and he won’t let that happen

    • When I hear the background behind the courts recent decisions on the FISA warrant, and the Burisma, Ukraine, Biden affiliation accusations, and recall all the dirt with the CIA, FBI and a Russian Investigation and the corruption of ALL Obama holdovers. I just can’t help believing the only way this will EVER be settled is to expose EVERYTHING. Put EVERYTHING and EVERYONE involved on the witness stand. Schiff, Joe and Hunter Biden are at the forefront of this impeachment, and NO, NOTHING has be “DEBUNKED” regarding those relationships and statements Joe made in public and on Video. There has not been an investigation into this matter which is one of the reasons I believe Trump should NOT be impeached, because even if he asked Ukraine to investigate….it never happened. he head of all this is the lies Schiff has told and he would be witness #1, the whistleblower #2, Joe #3 and Hunter #4.

      Without exposing EVERYBODY and EVERYTHING, it won’t matter if Trump is re-elected! This Bull Shit is just going to get worse in his next 4 years!

    • On a recording reportedly made by Igor Fruman, Dear Leader can be heard saying “Take her out!”

      Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman were in the President’s head by telling him the career foreign service officer, appointed by Ronald Regan, was “badmouthing” him in Kyiv.

      Fruman reportedly made the recording, which occurred at a small April 30, 2018 dinner at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.. Dear Leader has trouble remembering lots of people that he has intimate relationships with.

      “Get rid of her!” “Get her out tomorrow. I don’t care. Get her out tomorrow. Take her out. Okay? Do it.” King Donald The Loser

      Parnas reportedly told Trump on the recording that “the biggest problem there, I think where we need to start is we gotta get rid of the ambassador. She’s still left over from the Clinton administration.”

      • So effing what? The ambassadors serve at the whim of President!!! He can fire any ambassador anytime he wants for whatever reason he wants! He IS the head of state!!!

        This ambassador was ALL about protecting the Democrat’s money laundering scheme. She even gave Ukrainian officials a “Do not prosecute list” naming connected Ukrainian players involved in the schemes including those involved with Burisma.

    • James replied 1 day ago

      Well Phyllis, your demented boy – Shifty Schiff – LIED AGAIN. Seems the Alexander Hamilton statement he and Nadler TWISTED to suit their purpose and to imply he (Hamilton) was referring to impeachment was totally WRONG. The FACT is that Hamilton had sent a letter to President George Washington in 1792 regarding TAX POLICIES which had absolutely nothing to do with an impeachment of a President.

      Also another LIE (among MANY) was that Trump arranged the trade deal with China so he could ask China for help in the upcoming election.

      Do ALL of these D’RAT idiots lie awake at night and manufacture this unadulterated bullshit? Senator Mitch McConnell should shut this mess down at 1 PM on Saturday and send these carnival barkers back to their circus tents as the dimwits have shown their stupidity and there’s no real need for the President’s legal team to do anything but laugh hysterically!!

      • Leave it to liars to quote out of context and lie about it. Yes, that Hamilton statement did come FIVE YEARS AFTER the Constitution was adapted.

    • Question: is Nadler wearing a pillow? Given his garden-gnome stature that’s a hell of a boilermaker he’s pushing. Or is he pregnant?

      • Now, now, ST. Nadler’s battle with obesity is only funny until it results in his keeling over…then it’ll be HILLARIOUS!!!!

    • Note that Gropin’ Joe found employment for Crackhead Hunter with Ukraine AND China. I wonder if he’s got any grandkids speaking Ukrainian or Chinese? Or maybe Hunter is only doing “Made In America” with strippers.

They quickly forgot that they would have remained under a heavy-handed dictatorship or, been overrun by ISIS and we pulled them out from under both freedom-crushing entities. Now, apparently they want to join Iran at the hip. I wonder what that will get them. without U.S. troops there to hold back those that want to do them harm they are wide open to a takeover by a willing Iran or a reconstituted ISIS. But if that is what they want, let ’em have it. They need us more than we need them. I think our country has gone far, far beyond our original intent, and serve no American interests by remaining there because there are none.

      To paraphrase an AA/NA maxim, you cannot help someone who will not help themselves. After they exhaust themselves from their internecine bloodletting they MAY ask for help. It’s unlikely.

      Purposely omitting exculpatory information from a warrant is not “acting legally”. In fact it’s the exact opposite. Affiant(s) MUST include all facts known at the time which are inculpatory AND exculpatory in any warrant affidavit they are swearing to. To omit such information because it may weaken their case, violates the oath of office, violates criminal procedure laws and is lying by omission on a sworn affidavit.

    • fun facts: the FBI was ALWAYS about appearances, despite being led by a closeted-homosexual and his lover Clyde. That Hoover had blackmail files on politicians and spied on MLK among others has been forgotten.

      The FBI has NEVER been the bastion of integrity as touted. That’s BS. It’s another bureaucracy and denizen of the swamp.

      Since embassy employees are not allowed to ask if a woman is pregnant, how can one tell if a woman is pregnant at an early stage? He wants to force embassy employees to be clairvoyant. What a fool he is!

      This policy has the fingerprints of that racist Steven Miller all over it.

    • Since liberal idiot judges insist on misinterpreting the 14th amendment (written by Republicans to ensure freed slaves their American citizenship), it’s time to limit “anchor babies”.

      Let’s limit chain migration as a FIRST step.

    • The incidences of “birth tourism” are well-documented and not just for illegals from south of the border.

      Consider the number of “busts” of “hostels” hosting Asian “tourists” coming here to have babies with dual-citizenship. Google it.

      This “accident of birth” citizenship should be stopped.

    • I believe that citizenship should be earned–a la Israel, Rome, etc.–and not just handed out because your mommy dropped you across a border.

    • >Screwtape & WHC<

      I don't look for any changes to be made to the 14th Amendment or to our laws since any limitations placed on "anchor babies" would have a direct effect on the number of House Representatives (no more could be added if only LEGAL residents were counted). However, I feel Section I of the 14th Amendment is being partially ignored in that it says (in part): ". . .are citizens of the United States AND OF THE STATE WHEREIN THEY RESIDE". I would think the babies – AND their parents – should/would be a permanent resident of the State where the child were born; NOT there to simply acquire US citizenship. Social Security, Medicaid, food stamps, etc.

Dems are a disgrace. Funny side note, even Feinstein left chamber early. She didn’t do as a jury is to do, leave when testimony is done. She got up and left. That’s the case they have. She’s the Dems top rep on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

      • The chairman of the Senate Judicial Committee also left the chamber for 30 minutes. Sen Blackburn gave Laura Ingram an interview DURING the impeachment proceedings. You forgot to mention Blackburn and Graham.

      • You think Dems are a disgrace? Look in the mirror, Sherri, (if it doesn’t crack) and see whether you are an America patriot, or not. You may be surprised.

    • House Dims: We have a solid, airtight case.
      Senate Dims: We need more evidence/testimony.

      Let’s have those subpoenas issued BY BOTH SIDES. I’d like to see both Bidens, Schiff, and the mythical “whistleblower” on the stand.

      • WHAT is the material evidence you perceive the Bidens, Schiff, and the Whistleblower can offer? You do understand THIS is the IMPEACHMENT TRIAL of Donald John Trump, not a cable news piece. The jurors HAVE the whisteblower’s complaint and Trump appointed ICIG Atkinson’s letter with his findings of “a credible” and “urgent” concern and the subsequent testimony. This is not a TV interview where both political parties discuss the issues they believe are important to them—IT IS AN IMPEACHMENT TRIAL of Donald John Trump. If the DOJ had charges they could file against any of the 4 American citizens you mentioned, the Barr or Sessions DOJ would have filed them.

    • Funny, or not: those Trump believers ( can you imagine that) disregard the fact that Trump, himself, (no surprise) commanded his troops to not comply with their subpoenas. He must have something to hide (just ask Melania) C’mon people! Do you love America, or what?? I don’t care if his pants are up or down, bowing before a lying racist womanizer as the leader of your country should give you pause.

    • I’d love him to tell the absolute truth but Bolton’s love for the “New World Order” of continuous war for profitability of the elitists and his hatred for Trump will give him the platform to lie with little immediately prepared facts to silence or disproved him with the correct and truthful evidence (as if the media would present it).
      Once a lie is spoken, few will hear the corrections.

    • Bolton should not be allowed to testify as he is a hostile witness. Look at his personal file. He was fired. “You can’t fire me, I quit,” is a firing.

    • You are an idiot baal paul. You lie every bit as good as shiff face. You have no idea what you are talking about.

    • “To me, it looks like the president is just trying to protect himself.” Mark Rozell

      Ya think? He had been doing that publicly ever since the whistleblower rightfully blew his whistle.

    • I do not understand the R House Reps, R Senators, or Trump’s defense team not wanting to call Pompeo. Pompeo has on at least 2 occasions publicly stated that the testimony “got it wrong.” If Pompeo can offer exculpatory evidence, WHY are the R’s in either chamber NOT leaning on Trump to have Pompeo testify under oath as to WHAT it is all 12 witnesses “got it wrong”? Under oath testimony of 12 witnesses trumps a public denial of a politician with a signed NDA wanting to remain Sec of State. Has anyone heard an explanation of WHY he is not on the witness list? Are we suppose to wait for the Pompeo book which will obviously come out much later than Bolton’s?

    • Greg: take a time to think. Who was the one who denied any of the witnesses to testify? Could it be..(I can’t go back to that old show: “Satan?” But you know who.

    • ST, the Dims knew that executive privilege would Trump their call for WH witnesses request. The precedent has already been set by SCOTUS and would be upheld. It would also take months to get their decision. By then, Trump would already have been re-elected. The Dims HAD to rush this through before the election. They bet on suckering the Senate into entertaining witnesses and so far have lost. Without more witnesses, they have nothing; likely with any witnesses they want, they’d have nothing but a lot of national security would likely be done!

      Personally, I think Trump should give them Bolton as a witness and force Biden to testify! Bolton will blow up in their face and Biden will be forced to tell us about all of his illicit activities ( read Peter Sweitzer’s book).

      • WHC, interesting that my original comment is missing. IJR censors at work and why I only spend MINUTES here.

        Bringing witnesses will HURT the Dims. Think about the Bidens, Schitt, or the “whistleblower” subpoenaed.

        The Dims wanted to rush this through because their Golden Boy, Gropin’ Joe, is imperiled. That’s EXACTLY WHY I want testimony and witnesses.

    • SyPhylis: the answer is in the transcript of the call to Ukraine. Have you read it?

      “Do you understand ENGLISH MF’er?”

      Do you NOT understand The Constitution and Separation of powers? Obama played that card 19 times and was never challenged on it. Was HE obstructing Congress? (I laugh when I write that because the Democrats in the House of Representatives is NOT Congress!)

    • I’m laughing out loud at lefty Rueters claim that,

      “ Trump Will Have Hard Time Blocking Potential Bolton Trial Testimony”

      All he has to do is forbid Bolton to testify and this all will be stalled for months. He’s shaking the Bolton testimony out there in front of the Dims as a piece of bait. The more he tempts them, the more they want it!! How about Bolton for THREE Dim witnesses? Let’s have Quid Pro Joe, Hunter B, and Adam Schitt up there on the perjury chair!

      Ever read “Art of the Deal”? Of course not! You basement dwelling, do nothing, idiots have no clue!

    • >WellHungChad<

      It seems there are a lot of people who missed the remark made by Rep. Al Green (D-TX) when he said in May 2019: "I'm concerned that if we do not impeach this president, he will get reelected." Other D'RATS have echoed that same concern (actually they're worried because they have no one who can beat him).

      • James, even NoNads Nadler stated publicly that, “we can’t rely on the next election to fix our problem.”

        When I heard that, my first question was, “who’s ‘we’ and ‘our’ ?”

        He must have had a mouse in his pocket when he said it.

  • Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday proposed holding a summit between the leaders of Russia, China, the United States, France and Britain in 2020 to discuss the conflict in Libya and other global […]

    • It should happen, but the Russia, Russia, Russia crowd will scream orange man bad.

      • Not to worry. By then Orange Man and Pence will be out of office and President Pelosi will be on her throne and taking her marching orders from the Commie Quad Squad and the rest of the Swamp creatures.

    • “there was much to discuss and that the summit could happen anywhere in the world” Putin

      I am confused.

      What is Putin really wanting? To create a new club of six, a G6? The G8 just kicked Russia out. Give back Crimea snd eastern Ukraine and maybe we will talk.

  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu denounced Iran on Thursday as “the most anti-Semitic regime on the planet”, telling world leaders at a Holocaust memorial event that Israel would always defend itself […]

  • Democrats planned to plow ahead on Thursday at U.S. President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial with their arguments for removing him from office, but Republicans showed no signs of softening their resistance to […]

    • In short: “Help us impeach Trump because our Queen of Mass Corruption lost the 2016 election and also because we know we have no one who can come close to beating him in 2020. We MUST eliminate the competition so our leading Socialist or Communist candidate will become our dictator.”

    • Notice the dem senators have made up their minds before hearing the complete trial. This is total BS. These people are a disgrace and our country is at risk. This tells you when DC doesn’t like presidential policy (which is the president’s job to decide) they will impeach. They should all be arrested for sedition, because this is a coup attempt. If the military would back them (go research as there were calls long and loud from media for such) they would stage a military coup.

      • “Notice the dem senators have made up their minds before hearing the complete trial. This is total BS.” Sherri

        I am confused.

        So then you are O.K. with nearly 100% of the American Fascist Party senators pre-announcing that they will not listen to any evidence and just exonerate the king because that’s what the king wants. Do I have that right?

        That is certainly what the Senate leader has chosen to do.

    • This Schiff-Sham-Show is SOOOO exciting!! In fact, reports are surfacing the American people are tuning the Swamp’s charade out and watching reruns on television. Also, a D’RAT Senator was caught sleeping in the back row of the Senate Chamber. The fake Indian squaw was seen playing some sort of game on paper. Rand Paul was seen doing a crossword puzzle. Senator Feinstein left an hour early (she “wasn’t feeling good”. Did she get sick of listening to all the BS?) Twenty one Senators were seen walking out and back in the Chamber at various times. And now there’s repeat, repeat, regurgitate the same thing over and over. Are the Swamp creatures trying to convince themselves since they have NOTHING?

  • Here are some key quotes from Wednesday, the first day the U.S. Senate heard the Democrats’ case for removing President Donald Trump from office.

    PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP

    “We’re doing very well. I got to […]

    • That which Senator Graham said reflects the apparent desires and intent of those like Commie Bernie to eliminate the House, the Senate and the SCOTUS and install one-man rule – – as outlined by his Iowa Field Organizer – Kyle Jurek and backed by Commie Bernie’s South Carolina Field Organizer – Martin Weissgerber.. This would mean the demise of the US as a Republic under an elected :President and being reestablished as a Third World Sh**hole under a Soviet-style loving Fascist Dictator – Comrade Bernie Sanders. Congenital liar Schiff is feeding into that narrative with his “overwhelming evidence” (he really doesn’t have anything) in an attempt to throw a duly elected President out of Office for no reason, a POTUS who was elected by the PEOPLE; not appointed by a Committee of Fascist Elitists who would destroy the Nation with their historically failed philosophy.

      • Oh there is definitely a reason, 2 of them in fact.

        • Join the discussion…michael (with a capital B) and all his pals in the communist party have 0 reasons except to commit treason by removing a duly elected President and put in place their communist chairman to rule America. They want POWER and nothing else. They want a totalitarian government which their party has wanted since before the War of Independence in 1776. Make no mistake, it is the same party today.

    • Please pull your head out Norman, take a big breath and look around.

    • If all the DNC leaders choked to death in their sleep tonight, well…. I think America would celebrate like never before 🙂

    • What a farce this is. “I want nothing. I want nothing.” I will never vote Dem again.

    • You seem to use a lot of words without saying anything.

    • Trump was right when he said that he has all the materials. That’s why he needs to comply with the subpoenas he defied and cough them up. Nobody not even the president is above the law.

    • Once again, the House Democrats’ were very, very long on accusations and very, very thin on evidence—and this to charges that aren’t even crimes.

      They don’t seem to grasp that it was THEIR job to investigate. That phase is over. We’re also past the point in the trial of making accusations. The opening statements are over. NOW is the time they are supposed to present their evidence that a crime was committed by the President and they are still stuck on accusations. They are failing—miserably.

    • “we have all the material. They don’t have the material.” King Donald The Loser

      And THAT, dear IJR members, is called a cover-up.

    • These democrat INSIDERS are lying again & trying to project their crime of obstructing onto OUR OUTSIDER President. All of the one world global government, aka the new world order and deep state establishment began their obstruction of our president with their Stop Trum[ ovement – which next became an a;ll out effort to throw the election to Hillary when that failed – another failure & the FBI all the others entered the Crossfire Hurricane fishing expeditions on Trump. They nest set up the Rosenstein/Mueller treason fishing expedition with all the original INSIDERS still participating in their fishing expeditions – & when their positions were ended long after their invnestigation collapsed – they moved headquarters of the treason into the HOUSE and the Deep state establishmet traitors inside congress!
      From beginning to the ending with this sham of an impeachment – IT HAS BEEN BLOCKING AND OBSTRUCTING President Trump by grossly misusing & abusing the power of their postitions in the federal government while lying and tryikng to project their crmes onto our President – because they are terrified of being exposed for the traitors they have been shown to be & not to mention all the blocking & obastructing President Trump from following the immigration laws – for which these law breaking congressional should have been arrested & prosecuted to the fullest for many decades ago!

    • I appreciate these snippets. Thank you for both sides! I think it apparent, though, that if the POTUS’ team were required to produce witnesses and docs, Republican senators would be dealing with personal moral crises on a massive scale.

    • I hate to inform you sonya but the demonrat/communist party doesn’t have ANY morals or ethics. Examples are the impeachment and the murder of children called infanticide.

  • A bipartisan majority of Americans want to see new witnesses testify in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, and the public appears to be largely following the proceedings even after a bruising […]

    • NO to any witnesses or submitting additional documentation to feed into this Schiff-Sham-Show charade. The House dimwits said they had “overwhelming evidence” and needed to impeach Trump – it was “URGENT”; but waited 33 days before submitting the articles to the Senate. NOW, they find they need “evidence” and “witnesses”? WHY should the Senate engage in an investigation which was the SOLE, Constitution-backed purpose of the House? The Senate’s purpose is to conduct a TRIAL based on the evidence presented to them by the House. This demonstrates the House has NOTHING; even the crap they made up isn’t strong enough to remove Trump from Office.

      • Not to mention Nadler going on TV and stating in any court it would only take 3-minutes to decide the out come with the evidence they have……..ya sure…..okay…you bet Nadler!?

    • I can get a poll saying that 85% don’t want him impeached, this is just another liberal lie

    • Polls believe that journalists should be allowed into the Senate chamber. Why? There are so few who do not put their own spin on anything President Trump. We already have Schiff and Nadler for that. As for Reuters and their polls? How many polled were Democrats? Didn’t see that information. Hate is a terrible thing to waste.

    • So how many trials are tried on TV? If we tell the people what we want them to believe, and tell them this is what allll of your neighbors, friends, family, and co-workers believe. Even if nobody you know thinks that way. Tell pencil neck to go pound sand!

      • It’s a variation of what teens learned when growing up.
        “But moommm, all the other kids are doing it!”
        It’s self-evident that many never really grew up and behave like they think others believe.

    • After what happened in Election 2016 does anyone trust the polls? Back in 2016 polls turned out to be propaganda for Hillary’s campaign. The polls were predicting a landslide for Hillary. If the polls had been effective, voters for Trump would have stayed home instead of wasting their time voting. It was just the opposite.

    • I don’t know where I fit in with all those poll questions, but, I say yes let’s hear from witnesses. However, if Joe Biden is/was in corruption with Ukraine during his tenure as VP to BHO, as his infamous video definitely provided first hand evidence of quid pro quo to help his son Hunter Biden. And this gave enough concern to Trump and his administration that it deserved an investigation because of all the corruption the Ukraine is know for. Both Joe and Hunter must testify. As recently as yesterday Joe himself told a reporter he didn’t want anything to do with testifying as a witness in the impeachment trial. Why? As the House has said the past few days in the opening impeachment hearing. The only reason to not testify is because he is afraid of what will come out. His lies will be brought to light. His guilt of breaking the law will be evident.

      Then the whistle blower and Adam Schiff and a few others need to be deposed and cross examined. The Senate needs all those documents the house has failed to turn over to the Senate from their impeachment investigation as well. Let’s really get to the bottom of the ENTIRE saga!!!! Not just take depositions of those witnesses that the Dems think will give them ammunition to continue their attack, because they can take a shred of nothing burger and twist and spin into their own narratives. The Dems are correct let the American people see EVERYTHING! From the Russian Investigation, the Fisa Warrant, Bengahzi, Fast and Furious, Hillary’s bleaching of her illegal personal computer,Uranium One, Comey, Mc Cabe, Panetta, Page, Stroyzk, Schultz, etc, etc, etc, etc. Lets clean the swamp up real good…….lets bring the corruption of the whole of Washington down to the level they elected for! Working for the American people and not for politicians! Let’s rewrite the history books by bringing our Government into check so this wasteful spending on these ridiculous charades end once and for all!!

    • “The trial “should allow witnesses with firsthand knowledge of the impeachment charges to testify,”

      I totally agree.

      If this happened this BS would be over today as they have no firsthand knowledgeable witnesses.

      • Dave, I guess I’m just frustrated with the level to which people buy into the lies of this admin. There are firsthand witnesses-they have not been allowed to testify because POTUS has blocked them from cooperating.

    • Seems to me you’re here to stir up trouble, like a troll, and personally discredit James and those who have a different opinion.

    • Do NOT listen to michael (with a capital B) first of all. This is NOT a trial. It is the Senate coming together to take the articles of impeachment from the House and determine if there is enough facts to remove a sitting President. This IS NOT a carry over from the House to continue the fact gathering process. The House has already done that as it is their sole duty and now the Senate must determine if the President should be removed from what the House has submitted. The “facts” are nothing but a pile of shiff that was made up to provide the communist party with a means to have a coup. That is treason 101.

      • It’s interesting that bob thinks the impeachment trial is not a trial. The House drafts charges that are tried in the Senate. Here is some reading for you bob:
        wikipedia (dot) org/wiki/Impeachment_in_the_United_States

        • Join the discussion…I suggest that you read a lot more about this country’s founding and stop trying to insert your own political views into the laws of The United States. You try to sound so educated but your lack of knowledge of the USA is showing. You see if it is a trial then we do not need the House to do any investigation. It would all be done through the trial. The Senate DOES NOT have to call witnesses as the material from the House is all they need to determine if the President goes or stays. I do not trust Wikipedia. They get to many things wrong.

    • Our most recent impeachment trial of Pres. Clinton called for testamony by three witnesses: Monica Lewinsky, Vernon Jordan Jr., and Sidney Blumenthal. Over 90,000 pages of documrntain were also permitted.

      Not allowing either amounts, essentially, to a cover-up.

      • Join the discussion…You just want to cover up you attempt to overthrow this government and instill your communist chairman.

      wikipedia (dot) org/wiki/Impeachment_in_the_United_States

    • I came here to read all of the comments that reveal a total lack of understanding of polling. Also, James is under the mistaken impression that trials don’t involve witnesses or evidence. Not sure what totalitarian state his head is in…

    • Michael (with a capital B) has spoken. The Senate does not have to call witnesses like in a trial. They go strictly on what the House has submitted which is like Michael (with a capital B) a bunch of bu**shit.

    • Bob, you seem to be backing off your original statement: “This is NOT a trial.” Regardless, it is true that witnesses are not required in a trial, although I remember the Senate did vote to hear from witnesses during Clinton’s trial, and I believe there were witnesses in that Senate trial for Johnson’s impeachment. So there is no precedent for not calling witnesses.

  • The successor to the Iranian commander killed in a U.S. drone strike would suffer the same fate if he followed a similar path by killing Americans, the U.S. special representative for Iran said, according to […]

    • To hell with the generals, and I mean that literally, go after the MF with the turban he’s the problem.

    • We will never be able to trust Iran!!

    • As long as radical islamists run Iran the country is a danger to its citizens and the world. The world needs to quit kitty-footing around with them. EU needs to grow a backbone. This could be stopped without weapons if the rest of the world would band together.
