    Seth, in lieu of just making accusations and acting like an idiot. State the evidence that supports you statements and bring some understanding to your position except hate. Then again you can do the same thing you are doing to Trump to Hillary.

    Here is an Idea why doesn't the one who started this whole impeachment scandal Rump come before congress if he has nothing to hide and defend himself, oh I know guess he is not so innocent and if the Senate is truly an independent branch of Govt now is the time to prove it listens to the facts then vote on just the facts but the G.O.P. kangaroo jury will not listen to the facts and will have no spine and won't vote to impeach if the facts prove it out. Voter of the G.O.P. are you proud of the guy you put in the WH. He made the country the laughing stock of the world congratulations on picking the worst president ever of our country's history.

    Has this excuse for a president ever heard the phrase 'no smoke without fire' ? I mean a 'perfect' call is a lot different from a 'frightening' call - right ?

    The American President, Said to be the most powerful man on earth 🌎! He who says about himself, that he has a good brain, he knows words, the best words. THIS is all different things Trump Donald is bragging about himself. The genius, of a President, Trump Donald said: “ BUT LISTEN TO THIS ...THERE IS NO PRO QUO” We know, as he knows he said this wrong. But In case someone don’t know what he actually was trying to say. He tried to say: “BUT LISTEN TO THIS... THERE IS NO QUID PRO QUO. “ But try to get Trump Donald to admit he said something wrong He was trying to use the popular quote. “Quid pro Quo” that’s an Latin term. Means “something for something” How it’s used in English today, is “to mean an exchange of goods or services, in which one transfer is contingent upon the other “a favor for a favor” Phrases with similar meanings include: “Give and take”, “Tit for Tat”, “You scratch my back, and I’ll scratch yours” and “ one hand washes the other “ this wrong.

    But isn't that illegal? Demanding the media search for a Government protected witness and divuldge his or her name? Why is this nonsense even being allowed? Witness intimidation..? Risking harm? Threats? WTF, am I mistaken?

  • novatemari

    Calling out the whistleblower for retaliation is against the Federal Whistleblower Protection Act. Another impeachable offense

    theres a reason he can't see the whistle blower, they are protected by federal law for just this reason. so that fucking idiots like trump and his fucking family can't brow beat their accusers!. if there is a god in heaven then trump and his whole fucking family, will take a flight on a defective Boeing 737 MAX!.

  • iCookie1

    His identity is protected to avoid Trump-supporters killing him. The Trump Religion is the most extremist and violent there is. Just look at the FBI stats on the amount of rightwing terrorist attacks. They are shooting up mosques and sending pipebombs to people. While complaining about the "violent left". Funny.

    Trump wants to find out who the whistle blower is so he can have him knocked. Guys like that cant stand losing. If he loses the presidency because of some 'nobody' it'll eat at him the rest of his life.

    "It was a perfect phone call." Translation: "It was the perfect crime and I've never been held liable for any of my previous crimes in my life so why should I be held responsible now?" Wait, I thought Republicans were the party of "personal responsibility"? So why is their leader so irresponsible?

  • omegapointil

    Myers, Maddow and MSNBC throw the covers off just how dishonest and ignorant republicans actually air every night. Did you get your couple hundred buck tax break to keep quiet? How is it possible for this many people to be so fundamentally dishonest and believe Trump is anything but illiterate?

    Lindsay Graham, with that statement on impeachment, is a blatant dereliction of duty, and a refusal to uphold their oath. Anyone who follows such, isn't fit for office, and should also be impeached. Such blatant criminal activity shouldn't require a drawn our process, you don't let the suspected murderer run free while gathering evidence, why are these constitutional criminals still running free?

    Should have called him out on the "The Transcript was released, and proved the whistleblower wrong." (Paraphrased) The "transcript" was released.... And PROVED the whistleblower right.

    Why don't trumpers wonder why so many people are anti-trump? They dismiss anyone who doesn't like trump, as "anti-trump", but never do they question what he says. He claims he knows more about, strategy than generals, our intelligence agencies, science than scientist, and that he alone tells the truth, and everybody else is lying.

  • Raoul Fleckman

    I just realized that both tRump and Rand Paul use ridiculous hair-styles to cover-up what's really under there. Fake people leading fake lives.

  • xxwhispersxx

    They can't release the identity of the whistle blower - the GOP will have him/her killed.

    OMG! Is this really entertainment in USA? A program being childish, stuborn and only tells the parts of the truth they believe will improve their own rating/standing/appearance/jokes, just like the man they're making fun off...... No wonder USA has the great tittle "the most stupid country in the world" Wait... This reminds me of Fox, just the socialistic version...

    This poor person who is the whistleblower...what a petty thing by Trump and his goons to bully and shame this person now that they have no other viable strategy. I hope this person will get a peaceful live again!

  • birdsdaword

    A rake and weed killer...that's why he believes that Californians should be raking the forests.

  • roxannwats

    Whistleblower is... Ivanka. Hahaha

  • RobbyOnTheWay

    Trump & Co. want to know who the Wistleblower is, so that they can defame him with all means and spread lies about him. This is how the Republicans and Trump & Friends work! The USA is just a big shithole!

    It's time for the South to make a new party anyway. RuPaul was born in Georgia. Maybe he could run for president and then the new popular party of the south can be literally called the Rupublicans.

  • Think

    Trying to out a whistleblowers is ATTEMPTED MURDER, via a third party, via incitement, and we should be beyond horrified.

  • Eddie Vazquez

    What this impotent GOP and their brainwashed supporters refuse to see is that, at this point, the whistle blower is the least of their problems. Yet they continue to wave him in front of their base like a red cape in front of an enraged, mindless bull. They do this to distract them from the fact that there have been a numerous amount of other witnesses that have testified to impeachment inquiry and who have verified that Trump has abused the power of his office by tryng to coerce and bribe the leader of an ally country. If it were just the whistle blower's complaint, there might be some doubt. But the GOP isn't interested in the truth and how it impacts the rest of the world's view of our country. They have chosen to invest as many lies as they can contrive, to add to and prop up Trump's lies. It only serves to highlight how far they have strayed from and how little regard they have for our constitution and the democracy "we the people" hold dear. Something Trump is, obviously, trying to destroy; with their help.

  • Meadmaker 452

    Wait, aren't whistleblowers protected by the Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989? A federal law. Now, the president and the republicans are inciting others to break federal law by exposing a government whistleblower? What's that called again, when you try to convince other people to commit a crime on your behalf? Ah, yes, that's it, conspiracy and/or solicitation to commit a felony/crime. Pretty sure there are people in jail today for that very thing. Yet these people are still walking around without their handcuffs! As far as I'm concerned, they just added another charge to the charge sheet, but no one seems to have the balls to hold them accountable.
