This isn’t about my President. It’s about We The People against the socialist movement in our Country. It’s about our Constitutional Rights and being free Americans. It’s about draining the filthy swamp and DC governmental corruption. It’s about exposing the fake news agenda and the lies they feed the American people. It’s about my grandchildren’s heritage and what I’ll leave behind. It’s about my patriots that sacrificed their lives to protect our freedoms. It’s all about MY Country and OUR rights. So you see…. it isn’t WHO my President is.. it’s WHAT he stands for. 🇺🇸 Trump2020 🇺🇸

The thing that frustrates me is that, despite mountains of evidence, the GOP and Faux news, keep saying that the Dems have "nothing." It's a total lie and the base swallows it. How many dumb people do we have in this country?

And another mistake you made, Donna Edwards: Impeachment NEVER presents facts to the American people. It presents facts to Senators. Kindly re-read your Constitution. This bunch of Republican Senators isn't going to Impeach Adolph Hitler, let alone Donald Trump. Stop being so stupid.

Donna Edwards is a Republican. "Democrats shouldn't overstep". Right. We shouldn't overstep, and we should keep on losing. Ms. Edwards, jump off a cliff. Democrats should overstep to the greatest possible extent. In today's world if you don't fight dirty you are simply saying to the people sitting on the fence "We are apathetic. We don't think we really have Right on our side. We're lukewarm. There's no reason you should join us". To truly show the conviction that the things Democrats care about do matter, I think you have to be willing to burgle a hotel, not because burgling a hotel gives you a strategic advantage (it didn't, Nixon was going to win anyway), but, rather, it shows the world that you're so certain that your side represents the greater good in a time of peril that you wouldn't hesitate to break the law to protect the greater good. Democrats are weak at doing that.

The sad truth is that 50% of the population has an IQ under 100… And those idiots are all Republicans that vote.  And A seasoned con man like Donald Trump can convince them, GOD appointed him to be US dictator for life.  Thus he can award millions in gov't contracts to his friends, Trump can enrich himself without regard to the Constitution's emolument clause.. Trump can set up tariffs to again enrich himself and his friends. Trump can use his power to extort foreign officials into helping him win an election. We need to make a stronger effort to educate these poor idiots before Trump tells them, we got rid of all the stars on the flag and simply changed it into 3 stripes. Same colors as before but now only three simple stripes; one red, one blue and one white..

Thank you for sparing us trumps lies.That is not news. Don't air it. His whole strategy in 2016 was to make up lies & then he was voted into office by people who believed those lies. We have to learn from that. Real News stations have to stop giving trumps lies free air time. Finally, a news station that doesn't air his nonsense. It is offensive to hear: hoax, witch hunt, perfect call. Those of us with an IQ that is 3 digits…can't stomach that garbage at all.

amazing that in 2019, democracy as being exported via the US, as the supposed leader of the free world is so flawed. The greatest advocate for impropriety, despotism, and fiat governance at this moment is the US. Furthermore, the widespread use of propaganda, conspiracy theories, ideological dogmatism, and partisanship are the main forces at work in the US. The biggest economic and military superpower in the world. This opens the door for false equivalencies about both types of government (authoritarianism vs democratic systems where power is with the people)… America must overcome this lapse of governance and recover the rule of law and propriety or be irreparably scarred.

Funny how the republicans blame the Dems for "A Hoax" and claim they have nothing to hide yet the refuse to show up and testify as the only defence they have is doing it trump style – Lying. I bet most republicans and red voters don't understand Clinton was impeached for lying under oath not over the affairs. Why is trump not testifying? why no tax returns? why is he obstructing justice? I believe we all know the answers.

Funny how they missed the first part of that quote:

If you’re our strategic partner, then you can’t go blocking anything for us. I think that’s just about fairness. It’s not about a quid pro quo. It just goes without saying.

I think Democrats want to do this now, because it is not about the elections, it is about the rule of law. Public opinion is hard to predict, and there's no way of telling how even a sound and reasonable indictment will play out with Trump supporters and the undecided. But a crime is a crime and if Trump can be convicted, that's just that.

If we don't do something.

Talks about our justice system with Putin putting us down. Talking about are FBI to the adversaries and calling names in front of the whole nation. But the Republicans want you to trust Donald Trump, they get mad when you don't trust Donald Trump, not even first graders trust Donald Trump. Number one you don't even teach your children to trust a liar. Do Republicans think a liar is okay he's not okay when he's the president of the United States. He Cheats they think a cheater is okay. And then get mad when the nation don't accept all these that Donald Trump has done. getting mad if he's doing these things he's just doing horrible Behavior and he's wrong. And you want to put this whole nation on the line. the whole United States on the line behind Donald Trump this is ludicrous."

Top Republicans have made it perfectly clear, there is no level of crime severe enough that they will stand against this president. And his voting makes could care less. They elected a man who has been accused of sexual assault by 26 women. Do you honestly think any of them are what crimes he commits? It's part of why they love him.
And God help us call if Americans lose control of the house again. Numerous Republicans have said that they would favor suspending the presidential elections and keeping this man permanently, even to the extent of having his children follow behind him.

9:50 I disagree with the former representative that Democrats could overstep their bounds during the impeachment proceedings. I think the president and his Administration definitely overstepped their bounds and now the Dems are bringing evidence forward and holding Republicans accountable. The public not understanding is a weak argument as the newscasters and politicians explain the steps, process, where things are at and where things are going. If the public doesn't understand it is their responsibility to become more informed or "stay tuned". There is a reason why the Democrats are informed of laws, protocol, and the objective of their job -it's unfortunate Republicans have lost sight of these matters!
What Democrats cannot do is allow the country to slip further into disarray.

Democrats should never let this go to the Senate, where it will die 60 seconds after it arrives. Democrats should use every day between now and Election Day in November 2020 to pile on crime after crime after crime. We will never get rid of Trump in the Senate. The Impeachment proceedings need to become a campaigning tool for the reasons why Democrats should take both the White House and the Senate in November of 2020. You (Donna Edwards) keep saying that the Democrats need to sell this to the American people. That is the most moronic statement ever. The American people are already sold. We could get 100% of all Americans to desire Trump's Removal and the SENATE WILL NOT REMOVE HIM. What do you have where your brain should be! Impeachment can NOT have as its goal getting Senate to remove Trump, because they simply WILL NEVER DO SO. Impeachment's goal is to bury Trump in the bare naked facts of every crooked thing he has done since he entered the Republican Primaries. And before that even, if there's some flimsy excuse to argue for its relevance.
