    We know he doesn't read but does Trump actually know what a 'hoax' is? This is about whether politicians can follow the rule of law - who serves the people (the civil service) and who helps themselves (Trump and sons). I can't believe that you, America voted for this person, but then I remembered, you voted for an actor as well.

    Even though the impeachment hoax will pass the U.S. House of Congress, it WILL NOT pass the U.S. Senate of Congress.

    If you watched the hearing with the Democratic law professors, none of them had any valid fact of him abusing power. Even Tully, sorry I butchered his name gave an explanation for why the demacracks are the ones actually abusing power.

    GOP-led Senate should immediately file
    a motion to dismiss upon getting the
    impeachment case from the House. All
    it takes to pass is a simple majority, 51-49.

    Just like they did with the Kavanaugh confirmation, deranged leftists will harangue Senators during the impeachment trial - but the level of interference/obstruction will be off the charts. It will be the essence of jury tampering, but not reported like that by the MSM.

    This is not just Hong Kong. There is a change going on around the world. France, UK, USA are also being disarmed by their tyrannical politicians - disarming and enslaving the once Free People.
    The working people of the world are being captured and herded like cows by using secret trade deals.
    Each of us have an intrinsic money value on our working lives to the FEP (Financially Elite Psychopaths) which you know as the Cabal.

    But they have to disarm you first, before they can enslave you with a low wage and high taxes until you die or are no-longer useful - which means you will be purged to the street or jail...unless you have relatives that will take you in.

    Here in the USA....we clearly observed the Democrats push to arm their working buildings with AR 15 rifles.
    The same Democrats pushed hard to disarmed all children's schools which was the exact same tactic that Hitler used to disarm and enslave Germany.

    The bad law that the USA Democrats pushed was called THE GUN FREE SCHOOL ZONES ACT, and it communicated to all budding psychos within the psycho component in each city - that our children's schools are easy access, target rich killing fields....for psychos to engage in their psychotic plan to seek out the easiest Democrat Disarmed venue in the city.

    And after each attack and dead schoolchildren beginning with Sandy Hook and all the schools attacked to this day over 80 schoolchildren and teachers dead...... After each attack, the Democrat leaders stood on stage and said nothing about arming children's school as the Democrat Buildings were armed.

    No.....These tyrannical Democrats stayed with the Hitler plan tactic - and demanded the guns of good citizens after each Democrat Disarmed school was attacked and children murdered.

    Vote and replace all Democrat Politicians in 2020 !!!!

    A quote by Cicero in the year (43 B.C) while he was addressing the Roman Senate:

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot
    survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable,
    for he is known and carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves
    amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling
    through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
    For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar
    to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he
    appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He
    rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night
    to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so
    that it can not longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared."

    The Democrat's Trump-Russia collusion HOAX was/is a COVER for THEIR actual actions to help Russia!
    1) Burisma owner [Mykola Zlochevsky] was/is RUSSIA ALLY!
    2) Top Putin aids (Vyacheslav Trubnikov and Vladislav Surkov), reported sources for Clinton campaign/DNC paid for Steele dossier!
    3) Ukrainian who helped Hillary via Manaford and Steele dossier was PAID BY RUSSIANS! (Serhiy Leshchenko)
    4) The Obama-Biden-Clinton (2008-2016) admin immensely HELPED Russia, via promised and delivered "flexibility" on missile defense, New Start nuke treaty, Putin-loving Iran deal, Uranium-One deal (allowed Russia to take ownership of 20 (TWENTY) percent of our (USA) uranium production!)
    5) Slashing OUR (USA) military to near shambles!
    6) Denying desperately requested military assistance to Ukraine...during initial Russia invasion of Crimea!

    I don't think its right to indulge in Money in the way our country does in our Cities we Play with our lives because be keep walking into their trap. They get rich and stay far away from their mess while they make us dwell in it. Then they try to say that we did it to ourselves because we took the money. But what they dont know is that they look like Theifs, Murders, and Liers. They Suppress the Citizens of their own country and Wip them with the Wind of their Messed up Ways of Greed and we get punished because of their Debt!

    Trump will be fine, obviously the Republican Senate isn't going to remove him, and his numbers show it is extremely likely he will be elected again in 2020. He shouldn't even respond to comments about it with the media. He can literally just ignore it, and it will go away. It is just click-bait for the media. Whether they pass articles or not doesn't matter, removal was dead on arrival.

    Hearsay "testimony" isn't even allowed in small claims court!
    And the entire Dem "case" relies on hearsay. Normal/federal rules of evidence disallow hearsay so Senate trial shld be very short - if those rules are followed (which they shld be).

    Ten incidents of justice obstruction, one of bribery, one witness intimidation, and lots of abuse of power. There is plenty of reasons to impeach. Of course there are about 13,000 lies.

      I thought it was like 12 instances of POTENTIAL onstruction. You guys should be embarrassed at how dumb you are. If Mueller really thought TrumpbObstructed why didnt he say "Trump is guilty of X, Y, Z but because he is the President we can not indict.
      The OLC guidelines state that you can not indict a sitting President. Nowhere does it say that you cant accuse him of being guilty. Look what happened during the Clinton Impeachment. The Independent Counsel Ken Starr put in his report that Clinton was guilty of committing 11 felonies. If Mueller thought Trump was guilty he could have done the same thing but he didnt because he wanted to whip morons like yourself into a frenzy without actually having to stick his neck out there and make a definitive call. So because Muellers team was a bunch of dishonest cowards the DOJ stepped in and did his job for him.

    The only way the Russo-Repugnikkkans in the Senate will vote to remove the Orange Bloatus from office is if Frodo Putin issues a directive that they do so - and attaches it to the regular monthly ruble payment he sends to Chinless Moscow Mitch through the NRA laundering apparatus. Probably ain't gonna happen though. So far Trump has pretty much been a faithful lackey to the Kremlin, doing their bidding as an indentured servant in return for the bailout money he accepted from the Russian Mafia back in the days when he was a failed real estate bunco artist squandering the millions his slumlord father bequeathed him. And of course Putin no doubt has possession of the infamous "Pee Pillow" photos.
    There is the possibility that Putin might recognize that Trump's increasingly diminished cognitive abilities might hamper the murderous kleptocrat's plans for continuing to destabilize our republic through manipulation of a corrupt congenital poltroon, and second rate grifter and his CroMAGAtard supporters - a seething minority of racists, stooges and bullies. Trump's mental decline may be a factor that Vlad The Horrible hasn't considered.

    The main thing that makes this impeachment different than the others is Fox News -- it does not want to go down with Trump. But we cannot allow Trump to take this country down with him either. As ugly and as painful as it might be, the impeachment process itself will make us stronger. And this will assure that “this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
