  1. Congressman is that an impeachable offense? Answer I don't know…
    Really!!! Ask him has he read the Mueller report?.

    Bet he'll say no!

    Who votes for these people?
    Right now every elected official should be aware of what's an impeachable offense, an what's in the Mueller report. Silly Rabbit's

  2. There' no doubt that this is an impeachable offense. Here is the actual federal campaign finance law that was violated- §30121. Contributions and donations by foreign nationals-

    (a) Prohibition

    It shall be unlawful for-
    (1) a foreign national, directly or indirectly, to make- (A) a contribution or donation of money or other thing of value, or to make an express or implied promise to make a contribution or donation, in connection with a Federal, State, or local election; (B) a contribution or donation to a committee of a political party; or (C) an expenditure, independent expenditure, or disbursement for an electioneering communication (within the meaning of section 30104(f)(3) of this title); or
    (2) a person to solicit, accept, or receive a contribution or donation described in subparagraph (A) or (B) of paragraph (1) from a foreign national.

  3. "Ultimately what is impeachable is 'whatever the (Democratic) party says is impeachable". False on it's face… This is what you call 'muddying the water'. The congressman is simply trying to verbally throw what he can into the ring to confuse those who wish to remain 'confused'. You can see his feet shifting for purchase in the sliding sands he's standing upon.

  4. We can't believe a fricking word the media says anymore. I used tho think CNN was the one place where bias and hidden agendas weren't prevalent but after finding out the "Steele dossier" that supposedly proved Russian collusion was a fictitious report created by none other than CNN was fake, I don't know where to turn. Fox is way right MSNBC is an even bigger joke so I'm left watching C-SPAN and foreign news to try and get the real deal. I'm so frustrated with our corrupt agenda driven media. We just want the truth and our domestic media just isn't it. Sure wish we could scratch them all and start over with truth being the only news that we hear. ARGH!!!

  5. It's very serious and troubling how the Dems are acting about something so insignificant proving yet again that we don't need a democrat party and we would be so much better off without them

  6. Hilarious to see these corrupt little turds twisting and turning and trying to avoid the issue staring them in the face from every angle. If using government money, withholding military aid that the US Congress has voted on, and holding up this grant which was presumably agreed because it was judged to be in the USA's National Security interests, in order to illegally blackmail a foreign government into launching a politically motivated bogus investigation intended to effect a US election is not straightforward corruption and a betrayal of the oath of office by a President, then what on Earth is…? Like many people around the world, I make the assumption that pretty much all US military aid is suspect and used for corrupt, immoral and unethical purposes, whether it's providing weaponry for Israel to maintain and expand it's racial conquest, occupation, and gradual ethnic cleansing programme, or for Saudi Arabia to slaughter Yemeni schoolchildren and use terror and starvation as a weapon of war, or for Syrian insurgent groups, who were in reality all dominated by Islamist jihadist fascists, to prolong the horror of the Civil War there… the USA is the world's principal purveyor of weapons of death and destruction (by a huge margin), often with US government money picking up the bill. So it's no surprise that US military aid was used for corrupt purposes, but what is astonishing is that no one bothers to hide this any more. Mulvaney was quite right in saying that it's always been done before, but it used to be recognised that this was something that was unlawful, shameful and exposed the US government as no better than international gangsters. Under Trump we at least have a new and refreshing level of honesty about this (and how ironic is that…?).

  7. This is fine and dandy except there was NO quid pro quo, other than the one coming from Biden, asking Ukraine to fire the lawyer investigating Hunter or there would be no aid coming from the US…that was an acting VP, a possible future President, and the whole reason Trump wants to get to the bottom of it.

  8. We have the actual Ukraine transcript, but the Dems would rather imagine Mulvaney's comments were about the Ukraine phone call, than to believe what the transcript actually says.

  9. Let's face it, the President of the United States pisses on the Constitution every day, and there's no shortage of supporters to hold his dick while he does it. "WE THE PEOPLE" is now "THE WHITE HOUSE DOES WHAT IT WANTS, THE CONSTITUTION DOES NOT APPLY TO THIS ADMINISTRATION….GET OVER IT"

  10. Rump's biggest fear is having his debt outgrow his ability to pay enough to keep from losing everything AGAIN. Now he has brought enough spotlighting scrutiny to guarantee it will come to that in the not too distant future. He is in a web of criminal intent and conduct. It has bulldozers digging to uncover it now. rump has a mountainous history of criminality that he needs a locomotive just to pull his train of interwoven baggage cars of it. 50 yrs of it since. College was just preparation for it. Daddy groomed him for it and made him the POS he is today. It sounds like he learned all his prime haters came from that retired man Friday valet was a great example of it. Too far right for alt right Breitbart but I never read any of his writings or rants.
