  • A CIA whistleblower alleges President Trump abused his office to get dirt on his main political rival.

    I think we will all remember this week for a long time to come. What started as a rumor that there was an intelligence community complaint that the White House was trying to quash snowballed into a scandal that may dwarf Watergate.
    Early this week we learned that the whistleblower’s complaint deal with the President directly. Most assumed it related to the July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky.
    When the White House released the transcript of the call with Zelensky, we learned that the two leaders discussed military aid, and then discussed two “favors” that President Trump wanted from Ukraine: 1) he wanted Ukraine to look into “servers” and Crowdstrike and 2) he wanted Ukraine to restart an investigation into Trump’s main political rival Joe Biden.
    The next day the full Whistleblower complaint was released. The full complaint recapitulated all of the information in the read-out of the phone call and also dropped the bombshells that the White House had been attempting to coverup the phone call (and potentially others) but hiding it in a computer system designed only for the most secure communications.
    House Democrats have already voted to start an impeachment inquiry.
    Things are moving fast.
    This is big.

    a transcript of two presidents talking about crowdstrike and servers and this lawyer idiot immediately tells us all thats just a conspiracy theory and doesnt exist..... so your saying the two presidents are just talking about fake conspiracy theorys?? how brain washed are you?

    I am astounded of how badly Mr Trump expresses himself. His demands are so vague that you are not sure of what he wants or if he understands the whole context.

    They changed the rules for a whistle blower just before the he/she filed the report allowing here say that would be inadmissible in Court. Every witness had opinions but not direct evidence except one. One only one fact witness that said he had heard so many different opinions that he directly asked what do you want! Trumps reply I don't want anything just tell him to do the right thing. Him being the Ukrainian Pres. and the right thing is to do what he ran on Anti-Corruption! Case Closed
    In my opinion you are a bias hack and I would never come to you for legal advice.

    Come on. There's a very clear other side to this. If the whistleblower isn't telling the truth and wasn't a firsthand witness to these allegations, how much of this case is null and void?

    This question is unrelated to the video topic, and I am not seeking specific legal advice just curious about the subject of my question: if a couple in the state of SC or any other state with Common Law spouse rules, lived together long enough to be “married” under common law, only to later separate and the male remarry officially and have several children, can the common law status of the earlier relationship ever affect either party in the future? Such as the common law female claiming assets or funds, or the common law male’s current marriage being invalidated, as possible examples?

    The DNC and the fools running it just don't get it. The American people run America, not the DNC. They are going to find out the hard way that their abuse of the Presidency and the People is going to drag them down to destruction. America is stronger then the corrupt DNC. Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler with all pay a heavy price in the annuls of history as traitorous souls. Their vengeance will dig their own political graves.

    And Shokin went on record that he was asked to resign because of pressure, and Biden actually went on t.v. and admitted to using financial aid to get "the investigater" fired, and in his own words, "well son of a b### he was fired".

    Funny how the hearings later showed that NOBODY had information that linked the investigations to the foreign aid. NOBODY. The only person who even had first-hand knowledge of this by talking to Trump was Sondland, and he said that Trump said there was NO QUID PRO QUO. Funny looking back at this and then hearing the actual people involved. The only people that are outraged are the dems, not those involved. Trump and Z said that there was no pressure. There was no investigation, and Ukraine got their foreign aid. This impeachment is a sham.

      It wouldn't matter if he/she worked for Adolf Hitler, b/c the allegations made are being confirmed by other developments, records and witnesses.

    Seth Rich was the Podesta leaker. There was NO evidence in the Muller report that Russians hacked the DNC. That is a conspiracy theory that the Dems used to smear wiki leaks and J.A.

  • FilthyMcDumpin'Clips

    11:47 See how he already has his mind made up before he even read the transcript? because he is a biased hack.

  • FilthyMcDumpin'Clips

    Let's just make this clear, Joe Biden will NEVER beat Trump in an election... ever.

  • FilthyMcDumpin'Clips

    As we all know, the only people reelecting Trump is the Democrats.

    Hello, the opening statement is what the Dem are saying, and I follow this very closely, the President has carte blanche when it comes to Foreign Policy, and he was alerted that Joe Biden had a prosecutor fired for investigating the Olyghatc owned gas corporation that Hunter Biden's son sat on. The on a video while addressing The Council on Foreign Relations, Biden bragged that he had the prosecutor fired. Also the Intel community has been trying to find some crime to Impeach the President which is Sedition, because like him or not it's the office that you serve. The house has rewritten the Impeachment process and the Constitution by holding secret tribunals where no defence is heard, just like a Grand Jury which is unconstitutional in a Democratic Republic.
