    The real power of the "UNITED" States of America is about to show how no one or group will ignore the Congress on this issue. Standing up for the American People before any Political Party will always win. If the true meaning of the Constitution has any significance..this is the Time !

    …Trump has real estate to manage abroad, and the Nation will just have to convenience the management process from the Oval Office. This Country can survive a few more years of neglect and sequester and distribution of Presidential Authority, otherwise…taking the White House from the incorporated corporate politicians was a waste of money.

    Orange Fatty got a deal,
    with the Turkish "big wheel",
    that betrayed the Kurds,
    and fed our cred to the birds,
    then dashed off for a "Happy Meal".

    Obstruction of justice has been Trump's tool of trade since before equipment maker John Deere Co was founded.

    Blocking a witness and the impeachment process will create very bad Karma for Trump and his so called administration. It will catch up with them at some point .

    I read the transcript. Trump asked the Ukranian president to look into Crowdstrike. Everyone's watching the little firecrackers go off but missing the atomic bomb that's about to hit. Crowdstrike will soon be a household word.

    Do you're own research. Don't hate Trump because you were told to. Look at the information. Charlottesville, Muller, now this. The media leave out so much. Look at youtubers not big media. Tim Poole (one of the founders of Vice Newa) is the best, Mid Left and he fact checks everything he publishes. Jim dore is a left comedian but he's a good source. Steven Crowder is a conservative comedian from Canada where leftist policies made him move here. The Rebel is the only conservative media in Canada who has been blacklisted due to politics and have recently won accreditation in court against a corrupt Trudeau P.M. Look at other media and see their imput. The Left have gone off the rails. John Stossel is another great. Rational tv. is libertarian.

    Is that the witness that was not there, and told us he knows that Trump is guilt of who knows what, because he is psychic, but can't confirm anything. because it was hearsay. In other words, a ghost told him and the ghost is not showing up. LOL Oh, poor little babies, they are still having a temper tantrum because their corrupt female, that still has the money donated for HAITI, the poorest nation in the entire planet, whose population is 95% black, strangely enough lost. It's called KARMA, BABY, KARMA. Poor children, they know they have no one who can win, so are trying to keep Trump from running.

    Why won't they vote on it to make it official if they are so confident? Because it'll even the playing field. It'll give Republicans the power to subpoena, call on witnesses, aka putting the leftists corruption on center stage. I can guarantee that the corrupt leftist/socialist party members will not vote on it.

    shame on NBC for not reporting the truth. Viewers can read the letter. Pelosi has an unconstitutional inquiry going on, she has breached her oath of office. That is an impeachable offense. She is suppose to uphold the constitution, not shred it.
    The President is showing total respect for the rule of law and for the constitution. Pelosi should follow his lead and do the same.

    There is NO crime to impeach and Trump won't be playing games with liars
    like Adam Schiff.
    If you think you can impeach, send it to the House for a vote. You won't
    because you don't have the goods to impeach. You got NOTHING.

    The Democrats are afraid to do a vote on impeachment because it will allow the Republicans to investigate them and expose their corruption. So, watch how they will delay and delay it. The reality is that they are closing in on Biden and others, so the Dems are doing everything they can to distract the country from the real deal.

    There is no impeachment without a congressional vote. So there is no "blocking" going on. Take the vote, or take a hike. And if they keep stalling, half of them could be (and should be) behind bars before any vote even takes place. Nothing but a bunch of liars, cheats, and carpetbaggers. And the mainstream globalist corporate mainstream media mass mind manipulation machine (aka) FAKE NEWS is just as guilty for the way they have covered every story concerning President Trump.
    DRAIN THAT SWAMP! TRUMP 2020! Go get em tiger! 🇺🇸
