Notice how quiet Republicans in Congress are?

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Also notice how Trumpy did not relent on Ukraine aid voluntarily. Congres force him to give the money. If up to Trumpy, the US would have continued blackmailing Ukraine until they fabricated the anti-Biden story Trumpy demanded.

Treason. Straight up.

Where are the Republicans in Congress?

I said yesterday that a Ukraine collusion investigation was warranted and here we are.

First step is sanctions on Ukraine.

This is odd seeing how it was Biden in the first place who used his S of S position to get the initial investigation into his sons business canceled.

Same place they’ve been for three years - hiding inside Lyndsey Graham’s turtle shell.

Yeah liberals keep forgetting that 1 billion dollars Biden was withholding. This is a Biden scandal and Trump is within his rights to ask for the results of any investigation

He wrote in a series of tweets on Saturday that his conversation with Zelenskiy was"perfectly fine and routine."

Perfectly fine and routine ... for a morally-bankrupt sleezeball who has spend his entire life engaged in unethical and illegal behavior.

First step is sanctions on Ukraine...how about putting sanctions on Trump like not allowed to use the phone no internet and not to stay awake after 9....just a thought..

As for the Trump story however, in a sane world, I would think that it's crazy that a president would need to be investigated for something he said to another foreign leader, and placing such restrictions on a president would be crippling to the ability of a president to preside.

I never realized that there would be the possibility that a president would potentially commit crimes against his country.

BUT, if Trump is held to account for things he has said nefariously now, it opens up the possibility of the Republicans holding a Democratic president to account for things they don't like him saying in the future. Which would cripple a presidency.

So I'd have to say that this should be dealt with in a non-transparent way, through closed committee Congressional hearings, with the results sealed for a number of years. A president should not be crippled while presiding, but if (s)he has performed misdeeds, said misdeeds should become known to the public at some point, so that their legacy can be seen in an honest light.

Trump's attempted corruption with Ukraine has the same stink as Watergate all over it. A lying President, inept "fixers", hidden transcripts and tapes, an amateur cover-up...

Expect Donnie to tweet "I'm not a crook"....

If he doesn't resign, he should be impeached and forced to leave in disgrace.

But given the weak, craven and un-American Repubs in the Senate, he may get away with it....

Ahhh, so now Biden is hoping the tables can be turned on him, go ahead, the head of DNI said, there’s no quid pro quo and given the fact the Democrats did the exact same thing to Trump and tried to justify their antics using a fake dossier and now they claim outrage? Really? Well, Biden won’t be the nominee anyway, so it’s all good in the end, but even so, let’s check into Biden as well, let’s check his son, Hunter and if there’s nothing, fine.

Speaking of children, what I'd like to check on is Don Jr and Eric saying they get all the money for the Trump Organization they need from Russia, all the while Daddy is saying they have zero business with Russia...

And all those Chinese trademarks Xi approved for Ivanka's business while she's working in the White House? Suspicious....

Why isn't the fake-news media calling for Trump to resign every day? Is it the deep-state? Globalists? Elites?

Duly noted and also both Joe and Hunter should be investigated, as for Trump, I think he’s so used to it now, the Democrats tried...still trying to find whatever they can and still nothing and even after weaponizing 40 FBI agents led by crooked cop, 19 Hillary supporting angry Democrat lawyers via using a fake dossier and nothing on any of it, nothing that would even come close to case calling for incarceration. Now let’s see what the Biden’s have, if nothing so be it. Fair is fair in the game of Russian collusion.

Duly noted? That seems to be the standard Trump answer to all of the crime and corruption of the Trump Crime Family. He's sexually assaulted 19 women! Duly noted. He's admitted to grabbing them by the ____! Duly noted. He said he'll take dirt on an opponent from a foreign government! Duly noted.

Hey, Trump has just admitted to having a three-way with Stormy and Mike Pence's wife! Duly noted.....

I am all for investigating the Bidens, as long we investigate Trump and get his tax returns.

The fact that Trump is used to it is nothing to boast about. Trump corporation is a criminal enterprise and he has bought the same level of criminality into his administration.

Very inappropriate comment.

Dem's just soar cause they do not have front runner candidate worth a darn.

Biden son's have always been sketchy as hell.

Fact check.

Dems have plenty of front runners, but the right wing nutters are running scared.

Each day brings out a new level of criminality from our criminal in chief. The nutters should be worried about the future of the party.

Criminal, corrupt, racist, fascist.........., that’s how these 4 years of GOP rule will be remembered as.

In your version of reality maybe. Keep telling yourself that as we go another 4 and beyond.

Democrats worthless!

Next 4 years in prison, or in Russia with Moscow Mitch.

”It’s funny how humans can wrap their minds around things and fit them into their version of reality”.

Couldn’t have put the delusions of the right wing nutters better.

Thanks for for the quote.

Trump repeatedly asked Zelenskiy to investigate unsubstantiated charges that Biden, while vice president, threatened to withhold U.S. aid unless a prosecutor who was looking into a gas company in which Biden's son was involved was fired.

I don't really see how this is illegal. I guess the democrats are getting desperate.

Very inappropriate comment.

Definitely, and saying you can grab women by the _____? Or how about some white supremacists are "very fine people?" Or calling some countries "Shi&holes"? Maybe saying one of our cities is "infested"? Let me guess, not so much.....

Dem's just soar cause they do not have front runner candidate worth a darn.

Fox News doesn't seem to think so - their poll has all 4 Dem front runners smacking down Trump....oh my.....

Hummm, I wonder which sons said "We get all the money we need from Russia"......

Four years? No way. Maybe if it was just the conspiracy charge in the Stormy payoff, but now we have this fraud, and who knows what will come out of the other 23 investigations. I'd say he's looking at 8 - 12 years, minimum.

Democrats worthless!

Republicans Traitors - GOP - Guardians of Putin....

We don’t expect Trumplets to know laws, so we’ll leave it at that.

I guess the democrats are getting desperate.

The desperate one is the one who is so scared of losing, that he will extort foreign leaders into digging up dirt on his opponent.

Not to mention the opponent who is beating him easily in most polls.
