    There is a Vindman in every workplace. I insist you call me by my rank. Gimme a break. Check out the fact he was reprimanded and disciplined by his superiors when he was caught bad mouthing the USA and Americans to Russian military at a UN function. Also for leaking classified information to CIA people. The president makes policy, not unelected government employees like this. If he was so concerned about helping Ukraine, why did he not protest Obama when he did nothing as far as aid for 8 years.

      @Felix Pascual Jr Oh, were you offering a debate? All I saw was someone who apparently hasn’t watched the short video above, much less hours of actual testimony and transcripts. Plenty of facts for the taking. Keep waving those tiny flags like you’re better than everyone else, though.

    These hearings are not for zombie MAGA cult members. These hearings are for real level headed Americans to decide whether or not trump is guilty.

    Whenever there are hearings like this on tv, a serious question is asked and the witness always, ALWAYS! says “I’ve been advised not to answer that question” I dont think I’ve ever seen a hearing in which a witness has actually answered a question…….ever….never, not once. Why have these committee hearings in the first place. They are a waste of time when everyone knows these shady people are never going to answer a single serious question. Its infuriating.

      @Felix Pascual Jr Well, I was here to check out the video, and see what people were saying about it. I did indeed read his highly exaggerated comment, hence me relating my personal experience of multiple hours of testimony. What part did I miss? 

      And why are you shouting? The many people who are saying what Trump did was wrong include non-partisan military and security officials, ambassadors, Trump’s senior staff, Republican aides, and Democrats.

      November 20, 2019 @ 4:03 am

      @Felix Pascual Jr The people in Trump’s administration have cooberated the complaint in testimonies, idiot! Even the ones on the call. Would you say first hand knowledge is more credible? The whistleblower has done his/her duty to report a concern and is no longer relevant, only to those who are looking at passing blame than accept their own actions for this mess it’s created! But you know, nothing, not even the truth will sway you. You will see what you want and hear what you want for your own self preservation and need, stuff how the country is affected. Thanks for sinking America into its darkest times of mistrust around the world, allies broken and a government who can now, in your mind, investigate citizens for their greed, need and power! Welcome to a dictatorship!

      TheDalaiLamasGlasses because it’s all BS and the Dems are playing dirty, colluding with their deep state selves to eliminate a presidential candidate…..doing exactly what they are accusing Trump of (bribing a country to get rid of Biden, but I thought it was quid pro quo Dems?! Did that phrase not rate high on your impeachment polls? Lol)

      Except there is one glaring fact…..these phone calls first took place when Biden wasn’t running for prez, or even talked about. They had to wait for them to debate a few times to attempt this to fool your average American not following the facts and hearings

      @Dem Lem’s it’s not even about this specific committee hearing. Any hearing, idc what it’s about, dems, repubs, tobacco reps, gun lobby, impeachment, Hillary emails, roger stone. ALL OF IT. No one answers ANY questions. These hearings are absolutely useless for any indictment. Not one witness has EVER answered a question that wasnt just a stupid question to lead into main questions. The 5th amendment squashes any reason to do these hearings. It’s just for show. Everyone knows the witness is gonna skirt the real Q’s. Unless somehow the representative tricks them which is damn near impossible. The way they say “I’ve been advised to not answer” just makes me want to slap there blushing, corrupt cheeks and spit in there lying mouth.

      Hey Po Izzy, I need you to do a favor for me, though.
      See also: The actual testimony from today and last week, wherein multiple people, including non-partisan officials and Republican witnesses, are corroborating that Trump was in fact abusing his power by holding on to the money (or quid pro quo’ing, if you prefer) until Zelensky announced an investigation.

    If the Republicans themselves don’t see how narrowing down the number of people that got a given information and then be able to do the same with other witnesses to figure out who the whistle blower, protected by law, most likley is they are just ignorant.

    What strikes me the most, having watched every public hearing from start to finish on a stream without any commentators to taint my view is how apparent it is that the Republicans aren’t interested in trying to get to the truth. Not once have they addressed the facts of the matter. They have instead attacked the process (which never was an issue for them when they ran hearings), they have said we should ignore statements since the person heard something from another person. When that person later testifies and acknowledges what the first witness said and thus evaporates the Republicans defense of that first witness they just ignore it.

    They claim to be thankful for public servants service, but never once call out Trumps ongoing attacks on them. The want the identity of the whistle blower, whos complaints have already been corroborated by other witnesses, despite his identity being protected by law. Especially when the president has advocated that someone following the law and in accordance with their duties report wrongdoing should be treated as traitors and executed. Any sane person would understand that this is EXACTLY why whistle blowers are protected. Look as how Trump smears the name of witness after witness and it’s also quite easy to see why it’s sensible to believe he would do the same or worse in this case. Nunes, who have previously as the chair of the committee, gone to the White House with information should understand why it would be easy to see why the committee might not be a good place to name the whistle blower.

    The Republicans have thrown so many of the values they claim to hold under the bus that life long Republicans say they no longer recognize the party and are leaving.
    Sure, this might transform the party into something a portion of the party want it to become. But I wonder if they don’t inflict lasting damage to the party for average voters and if the behavior they have given their seal of approval by supporting and making excuses for will come back to bite them.

    Imagine if this was a democratic president who was first found to have his closest campaign people meat China because they promised dirt on the Republican candidate. Then the democratic president tried to block investigations by a special counsel into the potential interference by China where multiple associates of the democratic president were found guilty of crimes and plenty of evidence was found for China actually interfered in the election. The democratic president is then found to have paid hush money to women to keep quiet about affairs so that wouldn’t get out during the run-up to the election and the democratic presidents own personal lawyer who handled the payment on the presidents behalf is sent to jail for it and the president called a co-conspirator in the ruling. After all this it’s found that the democratic presidents PERSONAL lawyer have been peddling conspiracy theories, working with corrupt people from Taiwan, spreading lies about US individuals and according to their own account was doing it all on-behalf of the president. On top of that the democratic president is found to ask the president of Taiwan to launch and publicly state that they are investigating the US republican presidential candidate, all while putting a hold on military aid meant to stop China who have taken over part of Taiwan.

    How many seriousness think that any Republicans would say “This is all totally ok by me”? Or would they stand on the barricades calling for blood? Screaming for impeachment and removal from office? I mean, this is the party that felt an affair was enough to warrant an impeachment. It’s the party in which Graham stated that no crime must have been committed to be impeached. It’s up to the house to decide what is impeachable and impeachment can be used to restore the decency of the office. But nevertheless, this is the position they are taking in this matter to mount a defense for the presidents actions. That all of this behavior is totally fine as a US president. The only problem with that is, it leaves the door wide open for future presidents to use the presidency as they see fit without checks and balances.

      Thanks for writing that, brother. BUT, they have not proven anything? Can’t you see how all the media bullies Trump and sudden overwhelming news of so called “mass shootings” to incite fear and hatred for guns? – then they spin it to put the blame on Trump. I get your point though, I respect that.

    • Daniel Liljeberg
      November 20, 2019 @ 4:14 am

      @Mel Tan You shouldn’t care about what Democrats say about Trump. You should care about what Trump say and do to other people, how he uses the office and the power of it and if that is compatible with an open and free democracy or if the rhetoric and actions are more often found in a dictatorship.

      I struggle with the thought of accepting this behavior from any president of any party in the future.

Sure is, the sewer comes next, wrong during the elections,wrong during the Russia fiasco, will be wrong again, sorry to say CNN from NY to CALIF. you were my source for news,until you started attacking Trump, like you never attacked Obama, the worst president ever from my experience, I left the democratic plantation becuase of Obama not helping us, but rather constantly pitting us against whites with his racist rhetoric,& ham stringing our military service people, many of whom lost their lives becuase of his rules of engagement, don’t care how Trump talks he’s getting things done for all & the military, etc. but you give him no credit becuase the 2nd. coming of Obama in the form of crooked Hillary didn’t happen, thank God almighty for that!

      2. Please explain how the military was hamstrung when we continued to spend more than the next 7 highest-spending countries of the world combined.
      3. Do you not care how Trump talks because he’s not insulting or endangering people that look like you?
      4. He’s being impeached because he’s corrupt and abusing his power; “credit” is beside the point.
      5. You really want to excuse Trump’s corruption and violations of the U.S. Constitution because you think people are bitter about Hillary?

    Sure, on any dark, black, moonless night, one might easily lead the ever obedient Lieutenant Colonel Vindman to the edge of any sudden, acute precipice; and, then, command him to march right off of it. And, while it could be argued that his broken, listless body upon the jagged rocks below makes him the ideal soldier; I would beg to differ, Mr. Cooper. In fact, I would argue that, what he should have done, was to make you go first, sir. But, they don’t breed Lieutenant Colonel Vindman’s like that. Rather, Lieutenant Colonel Vindman’s are bred by congenital cowards as cannon fodder for the insurgent imperialist cause. Your cause, Mr. Cooper. Not mine. Now, get your dirty hands off of him, and jump

      @Mary Kitching The Obama administration has been marred by debt, scandals, foreign policy failures, and an overall fragmentation of this country. He has plunged the United States into an abyss of economic debt that will create generations of American servitude paying off his wayward spending endeavors. The Red, White and Blue’s epitaph will read like a litany of failures perpetrated on both the American people and the world by this president:
      #Scandals (Though both Obama and the MSM denied any occurred!):
      IRS targets Obama’s enemies….Benghazi….Spying on the AP….The ATF “Fast and Furious” scheme…..Sebelius demands payment….The Pigford Agriculture Department Scandal….The General Services Administration Las Vegas Spending Spree…..Veterans Affairs in Disney World and neglecting vets….Solyndra….New Black Panthers Voter Intimidation…The hacking of Sharyl Attkisson’s computer….Obama’s LIES about the Affordable Care Act….“I’ll Pass My Own Laws”….NSA Spying on American People….. Foreign Policy….Lack of solidarity with Israel…Disaster with the Arab Spring…Crimea….Leaving Iraq too soon and letting ISIS take over….Handling of Syrian Red Line…Calling ISIS “JV”…Failing to Recognize ISIS as a Radical (or Devout) Muslim Movement…Returning the bust of Churchill to the Brits…..Lack of Confidence by NATO nations…Signing a Disastrous Nuclear Deal with the Mullahs of Iran… Paid $5 Billion & Released 5 Taliban Prisoners For Deserter Bergdahl….Waging war by attacking Libya without Congressional approval….Allowed the building of Chinese bases in the South China Sea and off the coast of Somalia at the entrance to the gulf of Aden…Paying ransom to Iranian for hostages- and using foreign currency in unmarked plane….Failure to secure the Border….Illegals bringing guns, drug and diseases through the southern border….9 Trillion dollars more in debt….Disrespect for Cops….Constant disregard for the Constitution and tyrannical rule….Price of healthcare has drastically risen for those purchasing it…..Highest percentage of Americans on Food Stamps and Medicaid….Disastrous Vetting Process of “Immigrants” from Muslim Nations….Worst economic recovery since the depression with anemic GDP numbers….

      Brokeback Barry will be completely exposed as the sodomite, muslim, pole smoking, cowardly, treasonous, crackhead, thieving anti-American phony liar that he is and this will help to reinforce the truth that we cant trust anyone with even one of the characteristics , ideologies or world views of Backdoor Barry! BHO, The Hildabeast and to a lesser extent, a host of other vile individuals will have destroyed the Demoncrat Party and for this I am grateful to them! They will have proved that political correctness and tolerance when applied and given to vile and filthy ideologies and world views is not only wrong but deadly! The Demoncrat leftists and their PC tolerance of evil is much the same as being tolerant, accepting and loving of cancer, typhoid and Plague!

    It’s all opinion and interpretation. I felt, in my view, could be viewed by some, etc…. And besides, I feel, in my view, could be viewed by some as smart due to the fact that there could be corruption in their organization. The President was hearing bad things and he took precautions. And before the whistle-leaker, there was already action being taken to release funds and nothing received in return. For some real news, that means something more than just feelings and opinions.

    Democrats and Republicans are both right and both wrong. No one can claim the high moral ground. So it’s best to drop the impeachment shenanigan and revert back to the best democratic process which is elections.
