Schiff has said it was "meant to be at least part in parody."

Kinda rich to say when the current GOP talking point on Trump urging China to investigate Biden is that he was "joking."

Trump shift from "Crooked Hillary" to "Treasonous Nancy" There's no end to him. Well unless impeached?

He's right, as usual.

I just still can’t get over that liberals actually fell for that troll hit. Lol

Now on the Biden part he wasn’t joking and I think someone SHOULD look into the business deals with the Biden’s, if liberals and the media hate it, it’s ok, we let them do it to the President, so they can be equally as patient. Think about...

Biden’s son

Pelosi’s son

Romney’s son

Kerry’s son

All of them are Board directors for energy companies doing business in the Ukraine.....odd coincidence....

I see now why Mitt is getting jittery with Trump now as well as with Pelosi, these are the fools that are screaming the loudest for his head. Hmmmm.....

This makes Nervous Nancy every bit as guilty as Liddle’ Adam Schiff for High Crimes and Misdemeanors, and even Treason," he said on Twitter.

Quick, someone get the FBI on the phone.

Turnip Trump is getting increasingly irrational as the net closes. The man is a joke and an embarrassment to the USA.

13 ( +18 / -5 )

Trump's rich daddy sent him to a military reform school where he must have learned when the other side's closing in and you need to escape, toss a grenade to distract. Point at shiny squirrels. Make up fake news. Alt facts. Say some other guy did it, others are bad, too, especially if they're female and/or not from his demographic. Say it's the 'media's fault for factually quoting him. Trump can't take responsibility for the messes he's made. He's used to having his armies of highly paid lawyers, accountants and fixers (where's Michael Cohen) clean up after him. With Trump, the bucks only stop in his bank accounts. What a pathetic excuse for a leader.

15 ( +19 / -4 )

The question now is, how many will he take down with him - Pence, Pompeo, Mulvaney....he's already thrown Rick Perry to the alligators (in the moat?).....

Only the non-important politicians....Romney....uhhh....hmmmm

-24 ( +1 / -25 )

It's taken Trump all of three days to go from "I didn't do it" to "I'm proud I did it" to "Rick Perry made me do it."

He's trying to take as many down with him as possible. Democrats, Republican critics... whatever it takes.

And regarding northern Syria, it looks like he's going to sacrifice the Kurds.

This is when dictators are at their most dangerous, just right before the end.

Someone doesn't understand US politics. Romney represents Utah. Do the demographics.

Since Trump became president all of his kids except Baron have been greatly able to increase their personal wealth especially Ivanka and Donny Jr and the Trump business have raked in millions from his club visits and hotels and using the U.S. Air Force to prop up his Turnberry Golf Club in Scotland.

This is the guy who same he would separate himself from the Trump business but still directly connected to more than 600 of them. But then he also said he would be too busy to play much golf.

Guess that's why we had the longest government shutdown in history. More time for golf. Millions didn't get their pay.

Ivanka Trump Chinese business and Donny's own Chinese products.

Hunter Biden and Devon Archer, rooms mates when at Yale were employed has lawyers by the Ukraine gas company that wanted to expand its business into America. They were paid $600,000 pa not such a high fee for a company lawyer earning about $3 million during their term. All pretax.

They resigned this year when Joe Biden decided to run for office.

Trump has zero evidence just his GOB flapping in the Rose Garden.

Last year Ivanka Trump increased her wealth by $100 million.

So three-into-one becomes

"Crooked Treasonous Manic Maniac Donny"

Mr Perry, the President is on the phone and want's you to take the fall for Ukraine-gate....

What's next - China? Get Pompeo on the phone...

With all his scandals Donnie is going to run out of staff to throw under the bus... Don Jr, Eric, Jerrod, and Ivanka should be worried....

Ok, so still to be working in a gas company being dishonorable discharged and to be head and CEO with no experience making $50,000? Yeah, liberals can buy that garbage, anyway can’t wait until Barr comes back and tells the country what he finds.

-18 ( +3 / -21 )

Q. Ok, so still to be working in a gas company being dishonorable discharged

A. Administrative Discharge.

Q. head and CEO with no experience making $50,000?

A. No not CEO. Lawyer working in the legal dept so the fee is not excessive. What fee does Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani  earn. Both he and Devon Archer attended Yale for law so that qualifies him for the job unlike Trump with zero diplomatic and political experience needed for his role. Six bankruptcies, failed casino, fake uni, sleazy past.

Q. Yeah, liberals can buy that garbage, anyway can’t wait until Barr comes back and tells the country what he finds.

A. Nothing illegal.

Definitely not a good one or recommended when you want on your record

Yeah, that’s what the spin is now from liberals and the Biden team. Lol Anyway, Barr will get to the bottom, even CNN and msnbc can’t help Hunter out. If I were him, I’d come out of hiding, but then Hunter would have to explain that he admitted that his father talked and bribed the Ukrainians to get his son the gig.

What fee does Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani earn.

Hey! The Dems are trying to see if they can get this President impeached. Wow, shocker! So that’s ongoing whatever, but that has nothing to do with Hunter or Biden, the questions and the ducking won’t lesson...gonna have to talk sooner or later.

A. Nothing illegal.

Barr will determine that, not CNN, msnbc or the WP.

What makes Trump so hazardous right now, is that he's realizing his life of scams and getting what he wants is about to be changed, utterly. His presidency is failing fast, he's looking at a possible jail term, his assets could be seized, the kids indicted, his name removed from buildings.

Like the statues of Saddam or Stalin coming down, his vainglorious legacies will be dust.

Be prepared. He’s about to lose everything, and in turn, he has nothing to lose.

He knows this and his Trumpists know this. Expect a tough and dastardly (but ultimately rewarding) time ahead!

Well, that’s just not true. His Presidency is not failing, the Democrats are trying to make him fail as much as they can. 289 and counting accomplishments, everything else they’ve thrown his way just couldn’t dislodge the guy, not Stormy, Billy Bush tapes, Avenatti, taxes, Mueller and his corrupted minions and and on and on, so now the lastest and dumbest stunt (well dumb for Democrats) is to impeach him with the Dems are too cowardly to bring to a vote because they know their necks are in a sling on this and Trump wants them to jump, brilliant.

Like the statues of Saddam or Stalin coming down, his vainglorious legacies will be dust.

What? Oh, yes and while we’re at it let’s take down JFK and MLK statues as well.

Be prepared. He’s about to lose everything, and in turn, he has nothing to lose.

Lose...Yeah, been hearing that for 3 years, more BS, but I will say this, let them take a vote because once that happens it sets in motion the legal right for the GOP to call any witness they want. Be prepared. They might even call Hunter and subpoenas him and let’s not forget the 30 Democrats that one in Trump districts that barely scathed pay to win narrowly and that could easily be flipped which Nancy wants to avoid. So let’s see how serious these Democrats are. Wanna impeach Nancy, take a vote. I dare you. Lol

U.S. President Donald Trump, under pressure as Democrats pursue an impeachment inquiry against him, lashed out at the top Democrat in Congress on Sunday, saying House Speaker Nancy Pelosi could be guilty of treason.

Good luck getting a conviction for that. Or is this another of those troll hits his adoring marks love him so much for?

Burisma Holdings, the Ukraine gas company, CEO of the company is Taras Burdeinyi and chairman of the board is Alan Apter.

A number of non-Ukrainian directors were appointed in 2014, including Aleksander Kwaśniewski, former President of the Republic of Poland, appointed in January 2014.

 In February 2016, Joseph Cofer Black, the Director of the American CIA’s Counterterrorist Center (CTC) (1999–2002) in the George W. Bush administration and Ambassador at Large for counter-terrorism (2002–2004) joined Burisma’s Board of Directors.

 Also Karina Zlochevska, daughter of Mykola Zlochevskiy, is a member of the board. Other members of the board are Christina Sofocleous, Riginos Charalampous, and Marina Pericleous.

On 18 April 2014, Hunter Biden, the son of then-US vice president Joe Biden, was appointed to the board of Burisma Holdings. He left the company in April 2019.

 At the same time, one of the board members was Devon Archer, a former senior adviser to John Kerry 2004 presidential campaign.

Trump has repeatedly attacked Schiff for his characterization of the call. Schiff has said it was "meant to be at least part in parody."

Aint nothing funny about an impeachment inquiry. To misrepresent the Presidents words in a criminal indictment, for that alone Shifty Schiff should be removed from his office.

Agreed.

He didn't misrepresent Donny's words; he characterized the summary of the call, not the exact words. Let's have a little intellectual honesty.

a call the president held with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy

Oh my!

Glenn Beck explains EVERYTHING you need to know about the Ukraine scandal. And it goes MUCH further than Hunter and Joe Biden, and their involvement there. This timeline gives you all the facts and proof you need to show that there was DNC collusion, not collusion with President Trump, during the 2016 election. Democrats worked with Ukrainian officials to investigate "dirt" on Trump, and Glenn shows you EVERYTHING -- including how even George Soros is involved -- in a way that's easy to understand.

Trump is a complete embarrassment.

Treason is the only crime defined in the Constitution because tyrants had used charges of "treason" to imprison anyone they wanted. They had someone like Trump in mind.

“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

Perhaps Trump would be ok with Pelosi approaching Russia, China, the Ukraine and NATO asking they all investigate Trump and his entire family and reporting back to the Democrats or any assistance they expect from the US will be blocked by the Democrat led House. Trump seems to be fine with that sort of thing. Im sure Pelosi can have some "perfect phone conversations" with people in many countries. Trump should praise Pelosi for taking actions like that since he does it himself.

It's been quite awhile since Trump spoke about his policies instead he has become the captain of his slander boat wasting his limited time, hell he said he don't even go down to the office until 11am and leaves again on the dot at six.

Trump once said "if you going to spend time thinking you might as well think big!" Wonder what happened to that.

He's basically handed himself on a plate to investigators.

All roads lead to Donald Trump as more learned in impeachment inquiry.

The evidence that has emerged in the past two weeks alone makes it clear to me that Donald Trump has sought assistance from a foreign government for his 2020 campaign. Trump’s decision to seek that assistance has put him in peril of losing the office he is desperate to keep.

It’s also clear to me it’s not the first time.

It’s the third time … at least.

wow it really sucks when people accuse you of treason huh? 

Especially when there are grounds to accuse the person, which there aren't for accusing Pelosi.

First, this is irrelevant to Donny's current self-inflicted predicament. Second, the lawyers weren't partisan. I know it's hard for people that cannot keep their personal bias out of their work to believe that others can, but it is possible.

what makes you think you can prove treason?

Who is claiming we can? It seems as though you are doing what you are wont to do here, which is argue with yourself whilst ascribing half of the arguments to us.

Impeachment

(1) improperly exceeding or abusing the powers of the office;

(2) behavior incompatible with the function and purpose of the office; and

(3) misusing the office for an improper purpose or for personal gain.

Trump is guilty of all three

@Serrano

I am not sure if this is what Pelosi is saying or not (I am fairly liberal but by no means a fan of Pelosi as my home was within her district)....but if there are grounds for hearings and then legitimate reasons to impeach the President they should move forward.

Regarding your other post about her son Paul and the activities related to the Ukraine; if these are true this should also be investigated. Paul Pelosi's company was also charged with securities fraud. She is fairly well known for being corrupt but it is tolerated as she can bring home the bacon and her politics suits the electorate in her district.

I remember when Trump was saying "drain the swamp". He was right that D.C. is like a swamp (as Serrano pointed out and if one digs into Hunter Biden)...HOWEVER....Trump is turning out to be one of the biggest creatures in the swamp and he is about to get drained.

His ego got the best of him. He is no match for the career politicians who have been part of the "establishment" for decades now.

What a shambles the U.S. political system has become. It is shameful.

Gregg Jarrett: Fox News legal analyst and commentator, and formerly worked as a defense attorney and adjunct law professor.

Under the terms of a 20-year old treaty with Ukraine, President Trump had every right to ask Zelensky for assistance in an official Justice Department investigation into the origins of the FBI’s Russia probe and any foreign meddling in our 2016 election. As explained in my book, there is considerable and compelling evidence that Ukraine “colluded” with the Democratic National Committee to provide information damaging to the Trump campaign for the benefit of Hillary Clinton. This is a key component of Attorney General William Barr’s investigation being led by U.S. Attorney John Durham. Ukrainians, according to the DOJ, “have volunteered information to Mr. Durham, which he is evaluating.”

It was equally appropriate for the president to ask Ukraine to look into any potentially corrupt acts by a high-ranking American public official involving a Ukrainian natural gas company. If it was Joe Biden’s intent to protect or benefit his son by threatening to withhold $1 billion in taxpayer money in order to force the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating that very company and Hunter Biden’s role, it might well constitute a violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and other federal felony laws. Biden is not exempt from adhering to those laws merely because he is now running for president.

President Trump was exercising a proper use of executive power, not abusing it. It is Pelosi and Schiff who are abusing the power of impeachment in their latest “witch hunt.”

Well, that’s good to know.
