                        So are Democrats doing this so MSNBC can lie to anyone dumb enough to believe you when you "report the facts" that John Dean testified and he found Trump guilty of obstruction, when He rightfully canned Comey to stop the Russian investigation which was based on FISA warrants that the Obama administration, DOJ and FBI obtained illegally because they used a unreliable dossier written by someone that openly hated Trump.

                          I watched Mr Dean and was quite impressed I'm waiting for Chris Christie to be called and others to be called before the house committees I really don't think Chris Christie will not show up because he likes being a paid commentator of MSNBC and others. these are the people that the Democrats should be calling before the people.

                                None of this matters, it is just selling TV time so everyone can make more money! Sadly with the 1% donor controlled soulless republicans in the senate, the POS orange orangutan is still needed by them to dismantle our nation and hand it over to their 1% lords & masters, so they will never convict. But at least with Impeachment in The House, The Democrats can exposes which traitorous republicans in the senate, have sold their souls; and have The Blood of Our Constitution on their hands.

                                      Trump made a very important remark there. "Not _'Trump _*_oriented_*_ network"._ More people - especially conservatives - need to be made aware what these network are _really_ doing. They are no longer _conservative/conservatism oriented_ - but *_Trump_*_ oriented._ And they don't just spin the news and content to appear favorable to to Trump - they do what Trump himself does - they actually *lie* to their viewers. So conservatives, for their own, their family, their countrys sake - seriously need to poke their heads a bit out of the conservative media landscape once in a while, to check whether or not their preferred media bubble are stretching the truth / lies a lot further than they think.

                                              After Nixon trounced McGovern in 1972 (winning 49 states!), Democrats were humiliated and felt the party's collapse was imminent. They vowed revenge against Repubs (and, boy, did they get it). Dems have experienced that same humiliating defeat with Hillary against Trump in 2016.

                                                  How can this still be going on when the Clinton woman should be hauled up for destroying evidence and admitting it. Double standards in your country when it comes to deciding who to investigate. Haven’t you got other things to worry about such as the crimes committed by illegals, the rampant drug abuse.....and the strong economy which never seems to be mentioned by the MSM.

                                                      None of this matters to trumpsters. The only thing that matters to trump supporters is the push of there racist white nationalist agenda. They want to make america white again lets just call it what it is. This is why they will not even speak on the rise of hate crimes commited by racists. Trump will never condemn these acts which only promotes these people to do more. Regardless of the candidate running against trump the ultimate goal MUST be to get him out of office. The entire world depends on it.

                                                        How is it fake if it actually happened? What is it that is fake because everything stated are events that has happened. Or do you people no longer base anything on truths. Just alternate facts spewed by your false god trump.

She is the leader of corruption from both side of the house, that is the reason she is so quick to give in with the Republican and hardly pushing strong Democrat agenda from the left. She is doing a very good job alright, but only for her big corporate donor friends

But I have wondered why Pelosi continues to speak against holding trump accountable for anything. Despite the clear mandate the democrats hold. She has done nothing to address peoples concerns. She talks tough on tv but then does nothing to back up her strong words. I hope you are wrong about her but the less she does the more i tend to agree with this.

                                                                  (U) Finding #28 : The change in the Republican Party platform regarding Ukraine resulted in a stronger position against Russia, not a weaker one, and there is no evidence that Paul Manafort was involved.
                                                                  (U) Finding #29 : There is no evidence that Trump associates were involved in the theft or publication of Clinton campaign-related emails.
                                                                  (U) Finding #30 : Carter Page did not travel to Moscow in July 2016 on behalf of the Trump campaign.

                                                                  (U) Finding #33 : Donald Trump Jr. briefly met with a Russian government official at the 2016 National Rifle Association annual meeting, but the committee found no evidence that the two discussed the U.S. Presidential election.

                                                                  (U) Finding #36 : Prior to conducting opposition research on Trump’s business dealings, Fusion GPS conducted research benefiting Russian interests.

                                                                  As a result, we know that the chain of events associated with the case of Trump's "criminal collusion with Putin" looks like this:
                                                                  Trump's political opponents during the primaries hired the firm Fusion GPS, which specializes in opposition research, to dig up some dirt on Trump
                                                                  After Trump won the primaries, Fusion GPS lost the customer, but just for a short while
                                                                  The new customers of the dirt on Trump become the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC
                                                                  The new customers requested dirt on Trump from Fusion GPS, not only in the American domain but also in the international arena
                                                                  To add international dimension, Fusion GPS hired a subcontractor – former resident of British intelligence in Moscow Christopher Steele, known for his open anti-Trump beliefs
                                                                  Christopher Steele hired some former agents of the Russian intelligence services (against whom he once fought during the Cold War)
                                                                  The agents of Russian intelligence services concoct a dirty file on Trump (linguistic analysis confirmed that this dossier was written in "Russian English" with minimal editing by native English speakers)
                                                                  It is still unclear as to what extent these Russian agents were the "former" agents of the Russian intelligence services (that is, to what extent this dossier is fiction, and to what extent is it the deliberate work of the KGB/FSB disinformation effort)
                                                                  Trump's dossier, compiled by the Russians, gets to the FBI through the Assistant Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, who received it from his wife. At that time, she was working for Fusion GPS and was a part of the anti-Trump research team
                                                                  The FBI used this dossier as one of the key arguments in the secret intelligence court FISC to obtain a warrant to wiretap the Trump campaign
                                                                  In other words, the Obama administration used a dossier concocted by Russian agents to legitimize its surveillance of their political opposition.

                                                                  This is a summary of Glenn Simpson’s testimony, of Fusion GPS, to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
                                                                  Read it yourself. I did, all 312 pages.

He sounds like a snot nosed bully at the playground who hasn't learned how to debate intelligently. I wish the media would stop giving him so much coverage. I think much of the fault is on the media for Trump getting the presidency.

Others have pled guilty because they are completely broke and can no longer afford the lawyers to defend themselves. All on low level process crimes.
