    Every single day since Thump took office, there has been a scandal. At last count, 26 people have been indicted in the Thump Administration. It is madness.

    Never mind that Dean is a convicted felon for his part in the Watergate scandal, yeah, he obstructed justice, was not sent to prison for it, but was convicted nonetheless. The irony is not lost upon the star witnesses, Cohen and Dean are both convicted felons. This should speak volumes as to the validity of their "investigation." Be smart enough to know when you're being lied to.

    It's worse, because this time the Dems are falsely accusing a President to take the fall for made up crimes, in order to cover up all the ACTUAL crimes committed by themselves during the Obozo administration leading up to the election...

    Even though I'm a democrat, impeaching Trump will only lead to indignant republicans swinging the election once again. There is no chance of a democrat victory if Trump is impeached. Not to mention that vice president Mike Pence is just as if not worse than Trump.
    That said, the disrespect that young Republican congressmen and women continually show to their elder opposition is uncouth and disgraceful.

      @Diana Hulstine we have EVERYTHING to lose. Impeachment of Trump, regardless of any illegality, gives republicans giant impetus to stampede the voting booths. With just over a year until the election, we must endure now in order to win then

    Correction of this fake news title: This has nothing to do with Watergate. An old libtarded hack aka John Dean, who wants another 15 minutes of fame, spewing flat-out lies at a congressional hearing. That's just what this is all about.

    On orders from Vladimir Putin, Russian war planes bombed the civilian population of Aleppo, Syria, causing more than one million refugees to flood out of Syria and seek refuge in Europe. Mr Putin did this on purpose to destabilize the democratic countries of Europe. Mr Putin is not a friend to the Russian people and he is not a friend of democracy.

    Do you think that Trump considers those who fall for his lies to be suckers???A lie is a lie is a lie ...and being a sucker is a really bad choice too....Any patriot can tell you...if you want to stand up for this country, start with the truth and stay true to justice....Trump is keen on lies and cons....Americans will never let Republicans forget how they failed this country....Republicans can take as many showers as they want, they will never be able to escape the stench of their own cowardliness...

    There were a lot of Republicans that opposed Nixon's impeachment so these toadies are par for the course. Ironically, Nixon who they vilify, had more ethical integrity than Trump and resigned.

      There were a lot of Republicans who initially supported Nixon. But when the evidence was revealed they turned against him.
      The evidence of Trump's misdemeanors is before us and more damaging information is being obstructed by Trump. It is worse than Watergate and you think there is no issue? But then again your type is list with no morals. If you think Trump is innocent you are as corrupt as they come.

      Trump is the symptom of the problem, not the cause. Television Networks have stupefied America by dumbing down content to maximize ratings, and distracting Americans from more meaningful/engaging/rewarding activities. Combine this with a failing public education system; Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome to Dumbfuckistan.
