  1. do you mean that keeping secrets from he American people is not good/? As in telling state department employees to shut up about the Ukraine extortion operation? I agree. Impeach that stupid orangu-trump
    or keeping secret your schools scores, tax returns and edited parts of the Mueller report secret?
    or secret Putin calls?
    or secret meetings with Russian government officials in the oval office?

  2. "You've heard the president say this that we give them tanks and the other countries give pillows…they (European countries) are really stingy when it comes to lethal aid, and they weren't helping Ukraine…and the president did not like that…those were the driving factors."

    “…Did he also mention to me in passing the corruption related to the D.N.C. server? Absolutely. No question about that, but that's it."

    “And that’s why we held up the money.”

    The first quote is one subject, the second is another subject, the third is the cap on the first. (the main subject) Attempting to tie those two statements together out of context is the epitome of Fake News.

  4. I don't care how smart Mulvaney is. He's a moron for throwing statements like that to a bunch of dishonest reporters hell bent on impeaching Trump no matter what. What a moron.

  5. When you confess to a felony on national tv, and add "we do it all the time," it doesn't matter if you deny it later. What a clown circus, and Ken Starr, surprise, backing the chief clown.
    Remind me, Mr Special Prosecutor — aren't most criminal investigations done in secret? I mean, the cops don't usual question witnesses on live tv, or allow the criminals to also question the witnesses, do they? I thought that was what we call 'a trial.' You know, what Trump is going to have in the Senate, once he is impeached?
    Of course, that is making the assumption that the Cowrd-in-Chief won't resign and flee to some friendly country (Russia? Turkey? Saudi Arabia?). I mean, the gutless littl e boy has run away from everything else in his life.

  6. I hope Schiff gets all over this, we haven't investigated President Trump nearly enough…….NOT!!!!Wake up you Demonrats, America will re-elect President Trump in 2020 come hell or high water…..AMEN.

  7. How stupid do these people think we are? I've heard enough. Will not vote for trump again. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me! I feel very duped and sad…

  8. All liberals see themselves above the constitution, above the law as they know what’s right for everyone. They know what’s best for all of us. How to think, behave, how to raise children, spoon feed us free things, control everyone with high taxes, lower income, …..

  9. I had trouble with Ken Starr going after Bill Clinton but now the left really went left and Ken Starr knows the law if Ken Starr and Trey Grody are on the same team wow

  10. Bill Clinton gets a blowjob and Republicans freak and impeach him. Trump is exposed for corruption and incompetence and Republicans cower in a corner.

  11. Everyone has read the transcript and are still arguing about it, what a load of crap these so called news sites can come out with.

  12. Your own network's lawyer, Andrew Napolitano, says the closed door meetings are totally legitimate.
    This is not a trial, it's the prosecution interviewing the witnesses and that is always in private.

  13. If the FBI wants to investigate something that's fine – but Trump using his position to chase down conspiracies about his political opponents with no authority to do so is not okay. That's a personal agenda that benefits him, and that's why it's illegal quid pro quo – not just conditional negotiating that supports America's foreign policy.

  14. ❤ My dearest Julian Assange:
    Your eyes light up the room.
    Your smile lights up my heart.
    Your passion for truth gives me courage
    In this woeful world. Your determination does not go unnoticed by all of us who seek out the whole truth. Your wit is unparalleled and your gentleness is your greatness. Live. Love. ❤
    One day…..if God smiles on us both, we will find each other amongst the billions of people who walk this Earth.

  15. Trump has no credible base to stand on against Adm McRaven. Trump is a clown and a bad joker in comparison. The available solid evidence against Trump is well documented and confirmed. This will be laid before the GOP during the impeachment. GOP will face the indisputable facts publicly. I trust that the large majority of true patriots will demand that the right action is taken! I trust also that the GOP will choose to take the prudent action no later than at that point. USA is blessed having leaders like Adm McRaven and Rep Elijah Cummings. Elijah Cummings words reverberate strongly.

  16. Just a talking head putting spagetti on the wall. The reason why the democrats are investigating in secret is, because the Justice Department under Barr declined to start any investigation into dozens of complaints from White House staff. Don't try to distort the public. Why do we even have to see your face?

  17. How do you get a major section of a population to agree with your agenda? Watch mainstream news… it’s the best propaganda money can buy, and these actors are all funny to watch. How does everyone keep falling for all of this garbage news. Distract. Divide. Deceive… that is what your government does. Keep you from looking at the real threat, the…

  18. No one is taking this cloak and dagger impeachment seriously and all it makes me want to do is go vote Trump. Good job democrats for turning every state that thought about being blue completely red.

  19. The DEMOCRATS are so full of HATE and Immorality and deceitfulness, they don't care about following the law or even God's law at this point! They are strictly following Satan's agenda!

  20. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 "pretty close"🤣🤣🤣🤣"never heard it said"🤣🤣🤣🤣except when Mulvaney said "of course" that's what it was🤣🤣🤣🤣

  21. Well that entire portion of his statement is now questionable. I realize he meant something else but it came out wrong.

  22. Everyone needs to when they go to the ballot box, vote for whoever isn't the incumbent in the Senate and the house!!
    There should be every Republican in DC raising hell right now over this impeachment, but they don't care, they didn't want Trump in the white house to begin with. That should be enough to convince the Democrats and the never Trumpers that he's better than any of the trash that's been up there. They are all dirty and corrupt and they want Trump out so they can go back to selling our country off for their own profit just like before.
    If they manage to impeach him I hope they all realize that it's going to be like the French revolution all over again.

  23. Now we just have to figure out what ‘ inimical ‘ means.
    Oh yeah, let’s just let everybody know everything about every phone call to important leaders of other countries just to satisfy the Democrats.
    That ought to work well
    If they were to impeach Mr. Trump they would get a surprise as most of foreign leaders would be saying “ you better get him back, he’s the only one I want to talk with “

  24. Yup Ken,  everyone has to be really guarded.. transparency is key to everything. If nothing wrong or illegal has occurred, then release all transcripts and paperwork, let the people decide for themselves without all this political crap. If there's nothing to see here, there's nothing to hide. The truth WILL come out, most of it is out now. I would love to see the transcripts between Tiny Hands and Erdogan. It would go something like this… Erdogan.. I wanna take out the Kurds.   Trump…. OK, just leave my properties alone in Turkey. Erdogan got everything he wanted, we got nothing but a black eye in terms of foreign policy. NO OTHER country will be comfortable as an Allie to America, the promises mean  nothing. Iran, Turkey and Russia got just what they wanted. The Kurds got thrown under the bus.

  25. @ 4:25 + Re: "The House is involved in irregular order" means they are doing what is the usual regular thing to do.

  26. We live in crazy times. The House is stepping on the Constitution, yet we find guilt if someone withholds the money that we the people don't even care to give.

  27. where is Your Border Wall??? Where is your Economy Sections??? Where is the jobs??? Where is your condolences to Sen Elighah Cummings family??? YEAH your The Best Thing That Happened To America??? Think ya need to take a bath at your loosing Hotel there in whereee… hahahahah

  28. What worries me is that republicans have no contingency plan for the off chance President Trump gets blocked from 2020.
    I mean they should have at least five decent candidates touring the country by now, so that people could still vote a decent rep candidate in case Trump is unavailable.
    But right now, reps have so weak situation on that front, that if Trump were disposed of, democrats would automatically win 2020.

  29. Thank you Mr. Starr for confirming what I have been saying. Mulvaney was generalizing about how negotiations are done not admitting that there was a quid pro quo this time. And again if Ukraine did not know any aid was being held up and President Zelinsky, more than once, said there was no pressure the whole thing falls apart. GET OVER IT!

  30. Democrat's behind door's is not abiding Constitutional procedure and per Law.
    Democrat's making their own laws and procedures, which is called abuse of power.

  31. Ken Starr is a piece of garbage.

    Preliminary investigations are always done behind closed doors so witnesses and the accused can't align their stories easily.

    And republicans are participating in each of the committees conducting the investigation. They are in the room asking questions.

    This is a weak and stupid defense for weak and stupid trumpanzees to eat up.

  32. Starr says Clinton lying about a blowjob was impeachable but Trump soliciting foreign illegal aid for his political campaign was not. '

    That's all you need to know to determine that Starr is a moron.

  33. That is right; the secrecy is always very consistent with corruption. Here we have another prove
    of huge corruption on many top levels of bureaucracy. Go mister president, do your job!
    Can someone remind me what Mr. Mark Twain have said about dirty diapers?
    They have to be changed.

  34. Ken Starr is the same melon who thought a blowjob from your assistant was impeachable but calling on foreign government to interfere with the United States election isn’t. Republican hypocrisy is filthy rich.

  35. WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Calling it a “once-in-a-lifetime incredible deal,” Donald Trump on Friday offered recently-escaped isis fighters a group rate at the Trump National Doral Miami.
    “I am giving isis a group rate that entitles them to the full run of the golf course, the spa, you name it,” he said. “This is going to make the isis people very, very happy.”
    The fighters can qualify for the group rate by presenting proof of isis membership and their recently freed status, Trump said.
    Trump declined to say whether he would extend the same group rate to Kurdish fighters in Syria. “I’m not a fan of the Kurds,” he said. “Where were the Kurds in 1776 when George Washington took control of the British airports?”

    Shortly after Trump made the offer to isis, however, the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, issued a lukewarm response.

    “We’ve read some not-so-great things about the Doral on TripAdvisor,” Baghdadi said. “If we wanted to go to a golf resort, we’d pick one that doesn’t have bedbugs.”

  36. "i need you to do me a favor though" Trump thought he could mafia his way, but found out theres laws… republicans used to be the law party.. if hes innocent go to court

  37. If the Attorney General had conducted the investigation, instead of being a partisan hack attempting to protect the President instead of doing his job, then there would be complete transparency in the House, because the investigation would've been conducted by the FBI, like it should've been. Complain to Bill Barr.

  38. How about Obama's quid pro quo over Brexit? Telling the British people to vote for remaining in the EU or be put to the "back of the queue"?

  39. Have tax cuts ever increased government revenue? Remember when president trump gave arthur laffer the presidential medal of freedom?

  40. Mulvaney needs to be replaced in due time! This guy is and IDIOT! May be he's also a Dem mule in the Trump administration – who knows!

  41. At the Whitehouse, Secret Service agents, military staff, civilian employees and volunteers are held to higher standards than dear leader (only of his Al Queda/base)? LOL!! donald's Al Queda/base and republican senate/house members holds their children to higher standards, but in-turn, gives dear leader (only of his Al Queda/base) a perpetual pass. donald violates the oath-of-office as president (of our nation, not just his Al Queda/base), the rule-of-law, and just plain ole civility.

    Impeach NOW !!

  42. Power and bribe.

    Julius Caesar's conspirators came to stand around him, supposedly to honor him. Caesar's gown was used by one of the senators to secure both shoulders. Then Caesar shouted: "This is violence," and at the same time, one of the Casca brothers struck him from behind a wound.
    Julius Caesar was betrayed and pierced twenty-three times by the conspiring senators.
    How Arafat and Chavez died are still fresh in memories that yet work, and that may contain deliberate murders. It is a warning to all those to be oh as careful as the mother of a porcelain cupboard. This warning also applies to persons in the White House, including and in particular the U.S. President. Even Arafat's toothbrush was not safe enough to protect him from his opponents. The democrats do everything to get rid of D.J. Trump. The assassination attempts have not yet come to light. It should not be too light; therefore safety must be tighter. It is about the two means, power and bribe, that determine influence. The hawks will do everything in their ability to defend the lucrative possibilities that their delegation offers with sword and shield to preserve them.

  43. Really — you guys don't know why the location for the G7 Summit was set for the Dural? Have you not been keeping up with the President? Remember his trap earlier and the dems took it hook line and sinker… Don't you know this is another Rat trap? They will cite this as a breach want to vote for impeachment, but POTUS will bring out the details and it will be someone else that suggested Dural… Trump Inc may not even be charging them for the time and place. You can't pass that up. Rat Traps set up everywhere.

  44. Ken, the dems are breaking the law. They are required to uphold the constitution. They are required to guarantee basic rights. They are committing treason and should be prosecuted

  45. Mulvaney shouldn't have cooperated but he was selfish and egotistical. He's not smart. He's world class dumb to make any statement where his words can be used as evidence in any manner. And in this case, there isn't even a defense because the hearing isn't part of an official impeachment procedure. So, sorry Ken, you're wrong again. If you are dumb enough to give fodder to a kangaroo court then you are a special kind of dumb.

  46. Ken Starr ought to know. He's arguably the worlds expert on impeachment. He's the only living prosecutor to have ever impeached a U.S. president. He aired all Clinton's dirty laundry in public and he still lost.The dems are going to lose at trial in the senate, but they will air all Trumps dirty laundry at trial.

  47. you need to look at the nexus in the Mueller report release and Biden candidacy – Apr 18 and Apr 25 in order. Biden jumped in because of the investigation coming up after the Mueller report released Trump and gave the DOJ information about the FISA and Steele report etc. Biden tried to cover himself with a faux running for office campaign. Get rid of them. They are criminals.

  48. What everyone forgets is that even without quid pro quo it's still illegal for a president to ask a foreign Nation to help with their political problems. That's enough for impeachment without quid pro quo.

  49. In any investigation you never make it public if you're investigating more than one person. If it's public then everyone can coordinate their answers to get their stories straight. It would make no sense whatsoever! When the articles of impeachment have been decided upon then all the information will be made public.

  50. Oh God. Go away, Ken Starr. Defending Epstein after vilifying Clinton shows two sides of the same coin are both tails

  51. glad I took red over blue for my life to be intune with Heavenly Fathers Masterful Plan WWG1WGA We know all truth – Prophecy unfolding before your eyes awaken before it to late for redemption draweth nigh… King of kings & Lord of lords is coming soon be ready don't be caught up in the thibgs of this world be ye transformed into the full body of Christ Yeshua Jesus of Nazareth… don't be caught up in evil iniquity for Jesus will give you a I know you not ye worker of iniquity if anyones gets that boom into lake of hell fire & damnation forever…
