    Here is what these Republican IDIOTS dont understand !
    Imagine a team or Runners in Olympic from America are participating , They are aiming to get the Gold medal for AMERICA . Now One of the Runners is Donald Tromp and another one is Biden among 20 runners ,Tromp goes and ask a Runners from another country to Harm Biden Or asks the Coach of Olympic to do some thing in exchange for money so that he himself can win the Gold medal !
    Ask republicans Do yo think this is fair ? Or Ask them if this is legal ?
    These people jast dont get it ! The man has been asking another country to pot dirt of Mr Biden so that himself can win another term ! This is CRIMINAL By all means !
    If any other president have done something to earn for America .that is TOTALLY Different than stabbing in the back of a comrade to get ahead personally !

    If the Dems want an impeachment inquiry they HAVE to have a vote of Congress. THEY HAVEN’T. Everything they say atm is just noise. THEREFORE everything Ari says is also just noise. DYOR.

    Flannery hit it out of the ballpark, and Rifkin, who I used to highly respect, sounds like a right wing conspiracy nut here. His argument is that it wasn’t Russia that attack our electoral system in favor of Trump, which all of our, and the free world’s intelligence systems, agree on, but that it was Ukraine attacking the US to help Hillary, which has been completely debunked by those same intelligence systems. From there, Rifkin goes all over the place trying to say that there’s no difference between Obama performing foreign policy with only the benefit of the country in mind, and Trump sending his private attorney to investigate (who has no official government credentials) a political opponent and US citizen, thereby performing foreign policy by extortion, to help Trump personally in his upcoming election, and actually going against the interests of the US (in helping an ally fight against an adversary of ours.) Try again Mr. Rifkin. Good work Mr Flannery! You should be advising Dems in the impeachment hearings.

    Constitutional scholars fear factionalism without systemic checks/balances. Anyone who equates legit foreign policy with covert coercion/foreign election interference/tying political candidates to debunked conspiracies is a Trump apologist. Trump is a kleptocrat, “absolute power corrupts absolutely”, who places himself above the law. Trump rejects his Constitutional duty to faithfully exec. laws; Trump placed cronies in positions to obstruct democracy. Whistle-blower names remain confidential to protect them from imminent danger, they’re not “unknown”. Cognizant Americans know: FISA warrants were initially issued based on US Intel Agencies tracking foreign corruption/US Russian asset/Papodopolious info to an Australian, not the Steele dossier/Ukraine/Italy. Clinton hired Steele, an MI 5 agent who worked with US intel, to continue a dossier started by a GOP presidential candidate. US Nat. Intel. Agencies investigated Manafort, Trump’s campaign mgr./not a candidate, that covertly met with Russian agents/worked for Pro-Russian Ukrainian; unlike trump, who required Ukraine, a foreign country, to investigate a political candidate. The DOJ states: impeachment protects a sitting exec. from criminal indictment. Congressional power is checked by a bi-cameral structure, requiring a 2/3 rd majority of each house for impeachment. Trump acted covertly under his authoritarian claim, sending 3 non-government lawyers/gov. agents seeking foreign assistance to investigate a political opponent, foreign election interference, before releasing funds, asking Ukraine to concede disputed invaded territory to Russia.

    This foreign aid to Ukraine…. Its not like there is money withheld to Ukraine. When the US gives “Military aid” to Ukraine, its not a sack of money. They are given the PROMISE of a DISCOUNT on buying american weapons. So they dont have to buy them from Russia. These “Billions to Ukraine” are free. They dont cost the US tax payer a single cent. They are essentially discount vouchers for american military equipment. Which in turn creates jobs for americans.

    This is why people hate lawyers. I assume he is correct in his assessment of the founding fathers’ debate of impeachment. His assessment that any foreign aid helps a President politically. Litigation 101. Obfuscation: the action of making something obscure, unclear, or unintelligible.
    Also, his body language is also very disrespectful.

    42) I’m closing gitmo any day.
    43) We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked.
    44) AND FINALLY: The fence along the border with Mexico is now basically complete.

    Obama himself said ““Those who enter the country illegally, and those who employ them, disrespect the rule of law and they are showing disregard for those who are following the law,” Obama said in the clip. “We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked, and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, and lawfully to become immigrants in this country.” Yet when he said this there was no out cry, no protests.

    Its a little early for this, we don’t have all the evidence..we have a summation of the phone call in that transcript and the whistleblower report. I believe there is more like for example there is 20 minutes missing between that phone call and the transcript, I’m interested in what what said in that 20 minutes. I have a feeling there is more, I mean there has to be more for two whistleblowers to be compelled to come forth and report this..

    It’s really quite simple, the Dems merely have to prove that President Trump was acting purely for his own electoral gain. It’s not enough to claim that is the case just because they say so, it has to be proven with evidence, a tape, confession, eye witness accounts, whatever, especially as the Democrats themselves were neck deep in corruption in Ukraine. Biden is just the tip of a very dirty iceberg as far as Ukraine goes.

    And Trump is not ‘withholding information from Congress’, he is withholding it from House Democrats, who are acting without the authority of Congress. If they want that information so badly, they can vote to be granted that authority.

    So Democrats and liberals don’t care that Biden stole a billion dollars of tax payers money. Or used it to pay off officials so his son wouldn’t go to prison. Instead democrats and liberals are mad for investigating it. How stupid are democrats and liberals. That like saying your mad at the man that broke into your house and stole your stuff. Your mad at the cop that cought the criminal. Dumbest group of people. Trump already won 2020. And the military stands by Trump so good luck.

    Republicans shouldn’t be allowed to appear anymore in the media anymore, they have nothing of value to add to any discussion at this point nor any integrity left to offer the nation as its servants. As such they are little more than an extremist group conspiring to give power to other nations over US policy and our democratic process as long as they can make a buck and hold on to political power.
