    By the way has CNN said that forbidding other Democrats from voting against impeachment illegal and against the law as testified by Jeff in this video . I believe that it’s the duty of a president to put pressure to get an investigation on the corruption and fraudulent activities of these people

    Make no mistake, Trump is a complete sociopath.

    Trump quote from 2004, a response to a Larry King Live caller asking how he handles stress. Trump: “I try and tell myself it doesn’t matter. Nothing matters. If you tell yourself it doesn’t matter, like you do shows, you do this, you do that and then you have earthquakes in India where 400,000 people get killed. Honestly, it doesn’t matter.”

    Spoken like the true sociopath that he is. Trump a sociopath in every sense of the word. He meets pretty much every diagnostic criterion of a sociopath..

    • Manipulative and Conning – check
    They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as      permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims. 

    • Grandiose Sense of Self – check
    Feels entitled to certain things as “their right.” 

    • Pathological Lying – check
    Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in a complex belief about their own powers and abilities.

    • Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt – check
    A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, he has victims and accomplices, who end up as victims. ( Cohen, Stone, Sessions, Manafort, Flynn, etc) The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way. 

    • Shallow Emotions – check
    When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion, it is more feigned than experienced, and serves an ulterior motive. Trump is outraged by insignificant matters, yet remains unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises. 

    • Callousness/Lack of Empathy – check
    Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others’ feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them. 

    ● Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature – check
    Rage and abuse. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others. 

    • Irresponsibility/Unreliability – check
    Not concerned about wrecking others’ lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed. Trump blamed Dems for his government shutdown, even after he said he would take full responsibility for the shutdown. Trump threw the crowd at his rally under the bus for chanting “send her back” even though they were only repeating his own words and beliefs.

    Kinda sad that politicians can get away with just about everything. My buddy is a hard working man who spent time in the can over parking tickets. Justice doesn’t apply to the rich, but the rest of us get screwed. Nothing will happen to trump, he’ll continue his russia backed presidency. Disgusting.

    The GOP won’t convict even though we know the president is abusing his power. The GOP is showing Americans they’re acting in the interest of the their party not of the people. They’re complicit too.

    No president, especially a draft dodging coward like Trump, should intervene in the disciplinary matters involving military personnel and the UCMJ. ( Uniform Code of Military Justice ) The military is suppose to be impartial, unbias and apolitical. Trump’s pardoning of Gallagher was nothing more than a self-serving PR stunt, a stunt that he thinks he can personally benefit from on the campaign trail. His reckless meddling in disciplinary matters like this can cause fissures within the ranks and command structure, and that would most definitely have an adverse effect on our military’s moral and operational readiness.

    At a rally in August 2016, a war veteran presented his Purple Heart medal to Trump. Trump accepted the medal and said, “I always wanted one of these, this way is much easier.”

    Spoken like a true draft dodging coward. Only a fool like Trump, who never has, and never will serve in combat, dreams of being awarded a Purple Heart.

    Trump and Gallagher are both men without honor. We’ve never seen anything like this before from a sitting President. Personally, as a Marine veteran, this turns my stomach..

    “GAO’s findings are a pretty clear overreach as they attempt to insert themselves into the media’s controversy of the day. Further, GAO has a history of the flip-flops, reversing 40-years of precedent this year on their pocket rescission decision, they were also forced to reverse a legally faulty opinion when they opposed the reimbursement of federal employee travel costs. In their rush to insert themselves in the impeachment narrative, maybe they’ll have to reverse their opinion again.”

    CNN is an example of the press Stanley Baldwin wrote about ““The newspapers attacking me are not newspapers in the ordinary sense,” Baldwin said. “They are engines of propaganda for the constantly changing policies, desires, personal vices, personal likes and dislikes of the two men. What are their methods? Their methods are direct falsehoods, misrepresentation, half-truths, the alteration of the speaker’s meaning by publishing a sentence apart from the context…What the proprietorship of these papers is aiming at is power, and power without responsibility – the prerogative of the harlot throughout the ages.”

    Many of these witnesses could be facing charges. We all know about deals made to have people say what they want. We also know that Trump came into a world where the former president was immune to any consequences and did not have to follow rules. Many of the players followed Obama rules. That does not mean Trump knew what they were doing. Trump did not know until the deeds were done, the little organized crime syndicate made up of US officials was operating in the Ukraine. The FBI in the US was the stateside branch of this syndicate. Schiff has been given a job that will protect him from testifying. All this 11th hour stuff reminds me of the Kavenaugh hearings. And folks, you should know CNN cannot be trusted to report the truth.
