  1. I don't mind witnesses, just remember Joe Biden will probably get the nomination if Sanders and Warren cant campaign because of the trial, and Biden is going to get drug through the mud hard during the trial almost assuring Trumps victory in 2020…

  2. Someone needs to realize how the Soviets are now inundating our airwaves w/ false networking propaganda.Seriously, they are saying whistle-blower revealed, Schiff compromised, false accusations by Bolton ! This is a desperate attempt to derail impeachment ! Realize to Google the broadcasts sending false cyber-hacking & REPORT !

  3. The fact that they want "more witnesses to prove their case" says it ALL. They need "more" to prove their case? SO, IMPEACHED THE PRESIDENT WITHOUT PROVING THE CASE…We have no time to do work job, let's "impeach" and have the senate mop our mess….

  4. Not sure why, but Republicans want to turn trump into a Monarch.. I thought we as Americans don't want to live under a king/dictatorship… If the Republicans of today were sent back in time to during the revolutionary war, they would fight for the Redcoats.

  5. The Democrats claim they have all the evidence and documents that is full of Bomb shells.
    The Democrats in Congress impeachment was concluded and delivered to the Senate.
    There for. They had every unfair opportunity .
    Now , if the Democrats has all the evidence then , why do they need more?
    The Democrats are going to drag this on untill election day.

    Its blatantly obvious.

  6. Btw if they want witnesses, trumps team will get to call witnesses too and they will call hunter bidan. And even if he pleads the 5th, in cases of impeachment congress can force him to testify with the incentive of immunity. So if they call witnesses, he’s going to be forced to expose his corrupt father and dealings. Can’t wait for the dems to shoot themselves in the foot again

  7. More and more will surface trumps own staff and former are publicly stating the oppose of what trump claims. Gullanio has been working for Pro Russian Ukrainian leaders who are Putin suggorates. His associates are under investigation right now for federal law violations.

  8. Well Bolton could just release the transcript to public!! He could go public and have a news conference. Or testify under oath before a house Committee?
    When the president commits a crime executive privileges evaporate?

  9. It’s incredible how much they talk and really say nothing that meets the high of Impeachment
    Let’s investigate Corruption and put Obama, Biden, and Clinton in Jail
    Because there all Dirty
