    Didn't Skeletor Pelosi say impeachment should be bipartisan? The vote last week only showed bipartisanship against impeachment. Hypocritical much?

    Taylor, Kent, & Yovanovitch could require lots of top security to protect their appearance (and physical well being) before (and after) next weeks congressional hearings. The same goes for ALL those who will be doing the same in the coming weeks. Guiliani & Trump know too well the tactics employed by the mob.

    CNN you are nothing but fake fake news, the fact that you are spreading lies to the American people will come back and slap you in the ass, I can’t wait for you to be shut down. That key witness had no first hand knowledge of anything regarding the call to the Ukraine and our President released the transcripts of the call so the proof is in the pudding this is all a waste of time and money and the democrats should be run out of town on a rail for lying and smearing this president for the last 3 years. There’s not going to be an impeachment at least not one that has any real support from all the people the man did nothing wrong he never has and still they continue to harass and bad talk him to the bitter end we will see exactly how the republicans will treat the next democratic president if we have to have one.

    Damn, the Demis/Socialist are a embarrassment to the American public. Case just got drop by the justice department. If your left wing. Just face the fact everything you believe in is a lie. Trump: unemployment rate 3.7% GDP: 4.1 growth. Trump is the greatest President for the American people.

    Marie Yovanovitch, who was appointed to be the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine by former President Barack Obama, allegedly made false statements under oath during her October 11 closed-door testimony in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.

    This is very problematic for the democrats.

    All the evidence proves Trump is guilty. Impeach, convict and remove. Pence should go too, along with Barr since they both lied to the country.

    Jordon is a disgrace, asking for teh whistle blower to attend a public hearing. That is simply a measure to publicly identify the whistle blower and is illegal. Why the hell was Bolton not subpoenaed ? There has been enough pussy footing about, Dems need act tougher and keep the pressure on.

    The Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989, 5 U.S.C. 2302(b)(8)-(9), Pub.L. 101-12 as amended, is a United States federal law that protects federal whistleblowers who work for the government and report the possible existence of an activity constituting a violation of law, rules, or regulations, or mismanagement, gross waste of funds, abuse of authority or a substantial and specific danger to public health and safety. A federal agency violates the Whistleblower Protection Act if agency authorities take (or threaten to take) retaliatory personnel action against any employee or applicant because of disclosure of information by that employee or applicant.

    President Barack Obama issued Presidential Policy Directive 19 (PPD-19), entitled "Protecting Whistleblowers with Access to Classified Information". According to the directive signed by Obama on October 10, 2012, it is written that "this Presidential Policy Directive ensures that employees (1) serving in the Intelligence Community or (2) who are eligible for access to classified information can effectively report waste, fraud, and abuse while protecting classified national security information. It prohibits retaliation against employees for reporting waste, fraud, and abuse.[7]

    However, according to a report that the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs submitted to accompany S. 743, "the federal whistleblowers have seen their protections diminish in recent years, largely as a result of a series of decisions by the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, which has exclusive jurisdiction over many cases brought under the Whistleblower Protection Act (WPA). Specifically, the Federal Circuit has accorded a narrow definition to the type of disclosure that qualifies for whistleblower protection. Additionally, the lack of remedies under current law for most whistleblowers in the intelligence community and for whistleblowers who face retaliation in the form of withdrawal of the employee's security clearance leaves unprotected those who are in a position to disclose wrongdoing that directly affects our national security."[8] S. 743 would address these problems by restoring the original congressional intent of the WPA to adequately protect whistleblowers, by strengthening the WPA, and by creating new whistleblower protections for intelligence employees and new protections for employees whose security clearance is withdrawn in retaliation for having made legitimate whistleblower disclosures.[9] S. 743 ultimately became Pub.L. 112-199 (S.Rep. 112-155).

    Feels a lot like the whistleblower has been "threatened" and the Presidential Policy Directive 19 "Protecting Whistleblowers with Access to Classified Information" have been attacked by both Republicans and the President. When all of what the report from the whistleblower have been confirmed by others it makes little sense to latch on to the whistleblower like this.

    So why was a "invitation" sent and not a subpoena? Could it be Bolton's lawyers said they would take it right to Federal Court?

    Maybe congress show go all the way back to when Ruby was mayor and top lawyer, you might uncover some more high crimes, Rudy got all the bad guys because he wants to be the next Al Capone . Remember Rudy ran for president once and lost, you think he hasn't forgot that ? Like i always say, racist and crime lords always turn on each other, sooner or later. Happy early 2020, this donald and ruby show will get even better . For all you die-hard, maga hat wearing trump supporters , You all been played ! Have we all forgot what happen to george wallace ? Forgot he was shot by one of his supporters ? This is a takeover . Reminds me of the song by Living Colour , cult of personality .

    SOOO we're just gonna ignore the fact that Shiff or whatever his name is sat on the podium and completely made up his own version of the transcript? My mans freestyled better than most rappers today lmfao. Also do any of these weirdos ever blink? Now I'm not saying trump is perfect but does a booming economy mean anything to you left wingers? Are you really prepared to pay a lot more in taxes for all these "free things". I just don't see how anyone can vote for a party that has spent 3 years chasing after A SINGLE man not only that but coming up EMPTY every single time. I don't hate democrats frankly i don't hate anyone. Just don't think i can vote for candidates who's only 3 arguments is that 1. the president is monster and should be stopped 2. Everything's racist 3. Free everything BUT won't tell you how it's gonna be paid for & who want socialist policies. Don't even get me started on the damn gun situation. That's a comment for another day.

    The Chief Justice should bring that pig Jim Jordan into court to face his pack O' lies over his faked Ohio University testimony.
    When you get that liar's hand on a bible & proceed with questioning, little lying Jimmy Jordan will be committing perjury in the 1st session, guaranteed.
    Jim Jordan, Paul Manafort & Rudy Guiliani will cry like babies on the stand & should make good cell-mates, unless they bury President Trump,
    VP Pence & Steven Miller, with irrefutable facts, during their testimonies.
    If their spouses are still in their corners, they will be insisting that they turn evidence on Trump or they can expect to be divorced & if released from prison, will have no home or family to return to.
    Those are nasty scenarios that will make some really fine video entertainment & the basis of a movie that should illuminate the Republican Party, as the criminal organization that they have become.

    Mr. Pence, I'm an American. I read the rough transcript released by the White House. I can clearly see a quid pro quo ("this for that"). Quid = American military aid for Ukraine. Quo = Ukraine's investigations into Trump's political rivals. Stop insulting the American people's intelligence. Stop trying to gaslight the American people.

    It's not fair that the Democrats get to call witness after witness to testify that Donald Trump withheld $390 million in military aid to Ukraine and repeatedly asked the Ukrainian president to investigate his political rival in exchange for the release of the funds; and all the Republicans do is repeat unfounded conspiracy claims and whine and cry about hearing procedures that the Republicans promulgated in 2015.
