In a normal world, Trump would have resigned today.

Barr directly involved AND in the squashing of it too.

Impeach Barr as well. Now!

 accuse him of criminal behavior.

Trump's been involved in shady business dealings all his life. Corrupt businessman, corrupt politician. Leopards and spots.

That he's using the White House like a thug for his own personal financial gain is bad, but what's worse is he, the GOP members blindly following him, and those he's appointed to run his admin are undermining the principles the country was built on. In fairness, in his quest to lead the new oligarchy the latter is what he said he would do and what his backers said they wanted.

24 ( +26 / -2 )

It's bad and it's only getting worse.

Lindsey Graham is on Fox demanding to know information about....who leaked information to the whistle blower. Several GOP members have gone on interview to try to push the lie that Biden's son was being investigated at the time the Ukrainian prosecutor was fired. Rudy is just off the rails, saying this is all a coordinated conspiracy with Democrats and the media and America needs saving. Trump is being his usual idiot self. Other's are "reminding" us that the transcripts don't contain 100% of the information.

None of these things are close to working.

What's funny is that Trump fans boxed themselves into a corner with the bogus Biden charges. They were literally trying to create outrage over Biden getting involved with a foreign prosecutor as a massive breach of ethics....while the only one proven to have done so was Trump.

The president of the Flop! How many more antics do we need before the American people switch off their denial and turn on their brains? Respect is, but is hope too late for America?

Exasperated Trump's strategy: Flail at Democrats, attack whistleblower, tweet like crazy

It should be noted that this isn’t just his strategy for dealing with impeachment, its basically all he has been doing for the last three years in between rounds of golf.

The issue with this analysis is that it assumes Trumpophiles have integrity.

It has taken far too long for some people in the US to realize they have been duped by a man who will say anything to weasel his way out of anything. Thankfully, it's coming to an end and the US can focus on the things that really need to be focused on.

Lol, Reuter’s again at it. “Exasperated?” Once again liberals absolutely have no way of stopping this guy in a normal fashion so they have to conjure up junk or us his PAST as a reason why he shouldn’t hold office and these people keep failing, case in point, even after this latest takedown attempt, Trump raises within 24 hours $5 million STILL! 90% approval among Republicans, the socialist cabal is realizing their once hopeful candidate won’t make it, their second one will get pummeled, so now let’s see what they’ll try to dig up around Christmas time.

In a normal world, Trump would have resigned today.

If he were weak like some people and didn’t have the full support he does, maybe.

Barr directly involved AND in the squashing of it too.

Impeach Barr as well. Now

Oh, gee...you or I have no way of knowing that, you just don’t like it that the Democrats have come up empty handed again and Barr is not going to play the game the Dems want, the man that wrote the book and taught a lot of these losers.

-30 ( +6 / -36 )

Oh no there isn’t biased media at allllll.....

since Trump won, the media doesn’t give us facts and let us decide- they just push agendas and narratives.

Yesterday CNN took the entire transcript and added their comments to try to tell me what it “really means”. No thanks I can read the source document and draw my own conclusions based on the words I see.

-24 ( +6 / -30 )

Who is flailing? It looks like the editor is placing a lot of hope on Ukrainegate now that Russiagate is dead!

This is like a bad 1980s cartoon where those dastardly good guys win again!

In the transcript of the phone call, it's there in black and white. Trump openly solicited help from a foreign power to get dirt on a political opponent, in order to affect the result of the 2020 election. He included Barr in the plan too. He made the call THE DAY AFTER he thought Mueller exonerated him.

This buffoon needs purging from the White House.

I do not think that most of the clowns hoping for a Trump impeachment realise what that would result in, namely the ENTIRE FINANCIAL SYSTEM COLLAPSING!

The stock markets would instantly collapse, resulting in a world wide depression. That means your current comfy way of life, i.e. enough time to post your opinions on JT, would disappear over night. Good Luck with the dreams you were sold!

Trump is panicking, has lost control of the news cycle, and doesn’t know what to do next. Boo hoo.

What Japanese clients (and we) want to know is whether Trump represents the new USA or is this a temporary phenomenon what will cease when Trump is no longer president. Is this just a temporary phase?

Even though Trump is flipping out right now over this, he doesn't need to worry because he's still got the Republican controlled senate backing him. However, this has the potential to be devastating in 2020. Also, for the history books, it's a good idea to get as many Republican senators' sworn statements on the record for why they support the lying, extortion and cover-ups of the Trump administration.

ENTIRE FINANCIAL SYSTEM COLLAPSING!

No thanks I can read the source document and draw my own conclusions based on the words I see.

Anyone's sane conclusion of truth is that Trump used the names of Giuliani and Barr in attempt to get foreign help from a Ukrainian leader to do deeds against the constitution of the United States. An act of treason of an unpatriotic individual who lies constantly, and an impeachable offense.

Read it right, please.

Got 13 million dollars in reelection donations this week. So he should just keep on doing what he is doing and keep ignoring the media.

-10 ( +5 / -15 )

keep ignoring the media

Trump? He's incapable of ignoring the media and the attention he's got from them his entire life. He's far too narcissistic to ignore anything that gives him even more exposure. He's a reality TV star who needs to be in the spotlight.

13 million dollars in reelection donations this week

How much from his 'foreign' donors? How much from defense industries? Resource extractors? Domestic guns and ammo industries? Big tobacco? Big pharma?

You have to read documents and draw your own conclusions.

Adam Schiff read out a fake version of the transcript in a Congressional hearing. Then when caught, he claimed he was just doing a “parody” for dramatic effect. That confirms even he knows the facts don’t stand up well.

-16 ( +4 / -20 )

All he did was ask for reciprocity in an agreement, which is what he brings from his business experience. Anything to destroy Biden, Im ok with it.

Whats more shocking to me, is how CNN and others dismiss any of Biden and his sons corrupt behavior, much of which Im just now learning. Was he the one kicked out of the US Navy for cocaine use? Then was showered with money from foreign governments in so many corrupt scandals ? I mean..what tha?

I dont care what Trump did, I dont want these freaks representing me or my country.

-16 ( +3 / -19 )

Trump is panicking, has lost control of the news cycle, and doesn’t know what to do next. Boo hoo.

If Trump were panicking he wouldn’t have offered to release the call transcripts, he was even smirking and saying if the Democrats want his first call with the Ukrainian President, they’re allowed to have a transcript of that as well. He wanted it released, Pompeo was more reluctant, no panic whatsoever and the transcript showed it, more yolk again on the Democrats faces, now Biden is a totally different story, angry, abrasive, the Democrats won’t turn over any of his conversations he had back in 2015 regarding his calls to the Ukraine and his son involvement in all of this. Hmmmmm...wonder why....

-21 ( +3 / -24 )

Very slowly the US is becoming a dictatorship. This is what happens when people fail to hold their government to account, fail to control the people that they elected to represent them. The more they turn a blind eye to Trump and Washington, the more brazen Trump and Washington become until the people totally lose their rights and democracy. TAKE CONTROL of your government. This applies to all nations and all people; we are letting our government ignore us and slowly enslave us.

Who knows where truth lies in the Trump, post-truth era. But if it was in fact a 'parody', I think there's no place for that, whether in Congress, here on JT, anywhere. Anyone, regardless political affiliation or nationality, using parodies, alt facts, fake news, distortions of any kind needs to be held to account. Shame on Schiff.

I mean Trump is Trump, what u see is what u get, old school mafia boss, and I like it, gets stuff done

Fake Russia collusion investigation #2.

-18 ( +2 / -20 )

Next up will be Barr.

Kamala Harris specifically asked him if Trump had asked or suggested he investigate anyone. Barr paused, asked her to repeat the question, stuttered, and finally said,. "I don't know "

It will be fun to watch him go back to Congress and say, "Oh yeah, I forgot Trump asked me to work with the Ukrainians to investigate Biden."

What sleazeballs.

It was put out before, by Hillary to prevent Biden from running in 2016. This isn’t anything we just heard about for the first time.

Why do you think Obama advised his own VP not to run in 2016 and refuses to endorse him to this day?

If Biden and son broke any laws, they need to be investigated. If there's sufficient evidence of illegal actions, brought to justice. No one should be above the law.

old school mafia boss,

Indeed, he's been shady all his life.

and I like it, gets stuff done

Especially for himself and his family's benefit, especially for his fellow elite. With little if any regard for the rest, The bits trickled down on them is all he's willing to share. While he's weakening environmental, consumer and worker protections. And doing NOTHING with regard to healthcare while he and his fellow elite get the world's finest treatment.

All the more reasons why Democrat socialists should not wield power.

This is what happens when people fail to hold their government to account, fail to control the people that they elected to represent them.

This applies to all nations and all people; we are letting our government ignore us and slowly enslave us.

What nonsense, the Democrats in particular are enraged that this President has cut their feeding tube of a relaxed SC that often ruled on many of their toxic policies, policies that mostly stalled or could never get through Congress and they depended on the lower courts to aid in that. Thanks to this President for appointing 2 strong conservative Justices to the SC and over 179 conservative Judges in the lower circuit courts their power is rapidly diminishing and as such, their meltdown and desperation is of biblical proportions. States like California and NY are falling apart, the Democrats have been excessively abusing their power and oversight authority, their policies are failing left and right and the only thing they can do instead of moving more to the center is doubling down and thus ensuring their political fate to the dustbin. Their greed and desire to get the WH will fail once again because their outrageous tactics are blowing up in their faces. But there’s always 2024. Good luck.

What an absolute mess - far worse than Watergate - just looks at the players...

Trump: A failed reality TV host who with the help of Vladimir Putin scammed his way into the White House - a man who the word ethics is as foreign a marital fidelity...

Giuliani: A serial philander like his boss who had 15 minutes of fame after 9/11 and who is now obviously in the latter stages of dementia - goes on TV has has mental breakdowns....

Barr: Another of the many that after serving professionally in government is brought back in and ruins his reputation by engaging in potentially criminal behavior supporting his criminal boss....

This is Nixon 2.0 but Nixon and his band of crooks at least had above average intelligence. This is kindergarten level corruption - Trump goes on TV and confesses to soliciting a foreign government to interfere in our election, all the while tossing out fact-less conspiracy theories on the same level as the faked moon landing.

Putin sure got his money's worth for his 2016 sweeping and systemic influence campaign...

Pathetic to see how Trump has resorted to equating the Republican Party with his.own persona - l'GOP c'est moi kind of thinking. More pathetic is that so many Repubs are going along with it, whether through fear or ignorance. But they're tying their party to the Titanic and will be dragged down with him, not to resurface for a generation.

In a normal world, Trump would not have been elected. But he was thanks to the extremism and corruption among Democrats and accommodating Republicans. Thank you for that.

Now it seems as if the Dems are doubling down on stupid, so I guess we can thank them in advance for Trump's reelection. I suspect they will keep doubling down, and the US will soon have presidents who will make you look fondly back on Trump as a moderate.

CNN took the entire transcript and added their comments

Again, it wasn't a "transcript". This is just the narrative being pushed by Fox 'n' friends.

The actual recording was locked down on a system reserved for national security issues. Trump's team tried to bury this because they knew it was an impeachable action by the president. They've released snippets because they know they can't completely hide the truth.

All you Trumpsters want to keep talking about Hunter Biden? Burisma was being investigated for many months after Shokin was out. If your conspiracy theory is to hold any water, you'd think Joe Biden would have continued to work on behalf of his son post-Shokin. He didn't. The pressure was on Shokin, from multiple governments, because he was ineffective.

You guys are thinking way too small. Listing off lies about Biden, his son, yelling about the outrage over leaks, Deep State, whutabouts, etc., isn't going to work. You need to think big.

Your best bet is to build on your attempts to paint Democrats as enemies of America, and by a factor of 10. That becomes everything. Your actions can be defined as your patriotic duty to save the country from liberals, even if your actions are wrong. In those cases there is no right or wrong, just saving America or losing America. Then Trump's corrupt actions, the thing you can't overcome, suddenly look different.

What I'm saying is to not only embrace the corruption but legitimize it. Paint Trump as a warrior who won't let rules hold him back from saving America. Sure, offering up your AG to a foreign country to dig up dirt on a political rival is bad. But what if the real story is how Trump will do anything to stop a corrupt Democratic regime from succeeding? Same actions, different presentation.

Try something like this: Trump is willing to put his own neck on the line in order to save us. He's risking it all for America.

See how naked corruption is now a virtue?

Just spitballing here, but personally I think that would be much more effective than listing off Hunter Biden's salary in China.

Please tell Biden that, it’s on tape, I didn’t say it and i never was a VP for the record.

As I said before understanding what he said and the context required English skills.

So now Hunter a drug user, a man that has an affair with his dead brothers wife and has zero experience to lead any company and makes $50,000 a month was all on behalf of the government?

Are you sure you want to bring up things like infidelity while defending Donny??? Even Rambling Rudy could tell you that's a bad bad strategy!

Rudy going to prison has as much validity as Trump or Hillary going to prison. As bad as the Democrats are, they’re not that stupid......are they?

Donny might not go to prison, he will sell out everyone else and try his best to keep out. Or he can always escape to Russia.

The only ones looking stupid today are the ones defending Donny.

The ones who use infidelity to defend our $ 130,000 guy are even beyond that.....

You guys are thinking way too small. Listing off lies about Biden, his son, yelling about the outrage over leaks, Deep State, whutabouts, etc., isn't going to work.

Just like with this latest debacle in trying to get Trump, I get ya.

You to think big.

Your best bet is to build on your attempts to paint Democrats as enemies of America, and by a factor of 10. That becomes everything. Your actions can be defined as your patriotic duty to save the country from liberals, even if your actions are wrong. In those cases there is no right or wrong, just saving America or losing America. Then Trump's corrupt actions, the thing you can't overcome, suddenly look different.

Uhhh...looking at the how Trump even in this hoax mess raised $5 million in just one day indicates the Democrats are in serious trouble. Imagine what a week will bring.

What I'm saying is to not only embrace the corruption but legitimize it. Paint Trump as a warrior who won't let rules hold him back from saving America. Sure, offering up your AG to a foreign country to dig up dirt on a political rival is bad. But what if the real story is how Trump will do anything to stop a corrupt Democratic regime from succeeding? Same actions, different presentation.

Judging by his over 200 accomplishments and the fact that the Dems have come nowhere near that and the confidence in the economy is very strong looking at sales across the board, this will be a very good Christmas and you want to change Trump for two socialists that want higher takes and regulations? Won’t happen.

Just spitballing here, but personally I think that would be much more effective than listing off Hunter Biden's salary in China.

Ahhh, side issue. Biden by this time will be a distant memory, but an amusing one.

The U.S. economy and working class have rarely fared better and yet the Dems still want to drag Trump down.

So illegal acts Trump might have committed in office don't matter if the economy is doing okay? Credible accusations of wrongdoing should just be overlooked?

If all you can ever say is might have, we think, we feel, it could be, then yes these are all irrelevant and I prefer the strong economy over speculation.

If he did something illegal, schedule an impeachment vote and bring all your evidence. Its your duty and obligation to do so.

And as predicted they are now trying to discredit the whistle blower, just like the did Comey Mueller, FBI,CIA basically anybody that didnt agree with Trumps alternate reality unsupported by facts.

A perfect example of the global alt right members who want to undermine the US republic, particularly its democratic features, to give the executive even greater powers like Putin and Xi have. But that's to be expected from those who've long parroted Internet Research Agency messages, who agree with those who say, 'I'd rather be Russian than Democrat', who say the enemy is not the 'foreign' nation 'meddling' in US affairs, instead the enemy are US citizens with different beliefs.

This is serious - even Hannity and Ingraham are panicking....

Here's what we know;

A military aid package for Ukraine was developed by DoD, and was approved and assessed as urgent by SECDEF and SECSTATE given Russian aggression...

Trump, for no reason yet identified, put a freeze on this aid....

Then, less than a week from this freeze, Trump calls the Ukraine President and in the conversation, says "There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it ... It sounds horrible to me," 

A Whistle Blower was apprised of this conversation and made a complaint...

Once informed of the complaint, Trump had a record of the conversation moved from an unclassified server, to one that was only for highly classified, code word information...

The administration failed to report the Whistle Blower compliant to the Congress, as required...

Trump, in violation of the Whistle Blower statute, is now trying to find the person(s) on his own staff that reported this information...

Looking back at Watergate, it wasn't the break-in at the DNC that caused him to step down, it was the cover-up. In this case, since Trump has already admitted to asking the Ukraine President to investigate Biden, that abuse of authority is already substantiated. Now it is just investigating and outlining the cover-up.

It is being reported that Fox News is already reviewing what its post-Trump strategy will be.

Another 'bombshell'. Another 'watershed moment'. Another 'beginning of the end'. Aren't you all tired of this? How about trying to find a decent candidate with decent policies to defeat Trump... instead of the constant screaming and shouting. It hasn't worked. It won't work. Get over it.

I would rather Sanders or Warren as nominee, but I think he will get it by a significant margin.

Not enough to win. Liberals backing the underdog, interesting.

Trump will exit in disgrace and his mental health will deteriorate even further. It's sadly obvious to anyone who has witnessed the decline of those with dementia. I agree, he won't go to prison, as his mental health will be his lawyers defence. 

One thing Trump would never, ever do is bow down or bow out, his ego won’t let him and good on him for sticking to his guns and not taking it. Dementia, someone mention Biden...”Corn pop” uh-oh.....

Nice spin, but it's the spineless Republican party who are in trouble. Voters aren't going to swallow the corruption and lies ad infinitum. Trump's crimes are legion. He may not get 4 more years in jail but a second term is looking unlikely.

Yeah, the Republicans are in trouble, Trump is in Trouble, been hearing that since 2016 and in the meantime and after 9 or 12 failed attempts later...

@longterm dont care about their country,

As opposed to the Trump backers who don't care for the Constitution (with the exception of the 2nd Amendment) which the country was founded on, especially its provisions for separation and balance of powers.

Trump backers care more about their leader than they do the country as a whole.

Trump backers, especially the white nationalists attracted to his messages, have shown their contempt for the citizenry in general.

Trump backers want the corporatists and Trump's fellow elite to have even greater control.

Trump backers say it's all right for 'foreign' powers to 'meddle' in US affairs. And object to their fellow citizens who want those 'foreign' powers to focus instead on the myriad problems in their own lands.

Well, I have to correct myself - in a post above I said Trumpers may want to start printing their Pence/Graham 2020 banners....that was premature.

This scandal has the potential to take down a whole series of senior officials in the Trump administration.

Pence: What did he know and when did he know it? Why did Trump stop him from going to Ukraine and send Rick Perry instead?

Giuliani: Besides making a complete fool and humiliating himself, what was he, acting as Trump's personal attorney, making all these trips and all these contacts with Ukrainians? Did he present himself as an official of the US Govt?

Barr: Why was Barr named by the President as a contact in the smear attempt on Biden? What does he know?

Mulvaney: As the Chief of Staff, what did he know? Was he involved in the cover-up?

Pompeo: How much was he involved in this abuse of power?

You have to think one or more of these folks will realize they are in significant legal jeopardy and won't "walk the plank" for Donnie.

Maybe the Repubs can save some money and just modify an old banner - "Romney/Ryan 2020"
