    "This establishes a firm precedent that any current or former Trump regime employee can go ahead and testify against Donald Trump if they want. It means the floodgates are now officially open. Our guess is that we’ll soon see bigger names like Rex Tillerson and John Bolton giving cooperative testimony against Trump, and then we’ll see which of Trump’s current sidekicks (Mike Pompeo, Rick Perry, etc) decides to be the first to sell him out..."

    Sure. All this testimony about the LEGAL stuff Trump did is getting old. It's legal, the Dems just don't like it. Every modern President has done the same, but now it's all of a sudden a crime. Insane Democrats and their foolish supporters!

    Seriously, The Palmer Report? Really now, check out all what they said about the Russian collusion hoax. That site is the definition of "fake news".

    Pelosi and company would get my support if they would follow the precedents set by the Nixon and Clinton impeachments. First, authorize the procedure with a vote of the whole House, not just the Speaker's ukase.

    John Bolton may disagree with Trump on foreign policy but he is not going to testify about anything because policy disputes are not like violating the Hobbs Act as the Bidens did.

    Ken, talk about Biden crimes since you cannot talk about any Libertarian candidate since there is none.

    The national convention is not until next May in Austin, Texas. There are 13 announced candidates for president and 5 potential candidates being speculated about - Presidential Candidates 2020 - LPedia .

    You need to nominate Katherine Timpf. She is one of the best that you have in the Libertarian Party.

    Good. Now we can finally hear the Truth instead of the made up stories of the lying Mayor big eyes. As he double talks his way through life, his eyes get bigger and bigger as the falsehoods grow bigger. Reminds me of a fish. As far as our fearless leader is concerned, someone should make sure he doesn't blow us up on one of his tirades. Amen?

    BTW: Don't anyone tell him that he and his buddy Putin, together, can blow up the entire world and keep enough bombs to rule the world and get all its money for themselves.

    Well, now you have DeBlasio for your mayor. Better?

    And the Palmer Report is still fake news, even when they have the facts, they distort them beyond belief. For instance, Trump didn't and couldn't forbid former or current employees from testifying in Congress - he just said that the House subpoenas were toothless and not really subpoenas.

    Marie jumped all over the chance, so you have to remember the timeline:

    1. Biden's messed up son gets a job in the Ukraine. Junior is a druggie with no experience in the energy field at all, yet lands a salary of 50k/mo.
    2. American ambassador at this time is paired up with the Ukrainian prosecutor, their stated aim is the expose the rampant corruption in the Ukraine.
    3. Daddy, who just happens to be VP at the time, threatens to withhold American funds unless this Ukrainian prosecutor is fired and fired now.
    4. Ukrainian prosecutor is fired, the Bidens get their way again.
    5. Marie is named ambassador to the Ukraine about seven weeks later.

    You know, if there were dots, they could be pretty easy to connect.

    I don't like DeBlasio or most other politicians. They remind me of Prostitutes. You can rent their votes for enough money.

    False, since our President who acts more like a mob boss than anything else, doesn't like laws. They prohibit him from extorting money from others. He can always give employees a hard time about getting their pensions.

    How bout Trump's children? When a blond airhead gets a number of patents from China as a gift from Chi, I can promise you it's not because of her intellect.

    Ukraine being attacked on it's eastern border by Trump's buddy Putin and taking over Crimea is worse than any corruption by sorry politicians. Trump Tower in Moscow is the reason why. Trump doesn't care about another building with his name on it so much as the Cash he will receive from the deal.

    Amen, along with many other nations who could easily see where the problem was. At least Biden didn't receive anything personally. Trump uses extortion to gather in the bounty for himself.

    Looks like you have connected them together in a vain attempt to excuse the deceitful ways of Trump. Amen?[/QUOTE]

    ***talk about TDS in spades. All I even said about Trump was that he didn't have the authority to forbid or require others in the executive branch to answer what isn't a subpoena and you go off on another anti-Trump rant. Are you sure you're not from the Palmer Report?

    Regardless, you will be ignored by me from here on out and you deserve it. Amen.

    I know it's hard for the opposition to understand but diplomatic envoys serve at the pleasure of the president and he can remove them at will and at any time.

    Furthermore, her testimony was leaked and based on hearsay evidence:

    In her opening statement, which was obtained by several news organizations Yovanovitch told lawmakers at a closed-door deposition that she was informed by Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan there had been "a concerted campaign against me" and that Trump had lost confidence in her.

    (She then attributed motives, which she could not have known, to Giuliani's colleagues, who she doesn't know):
    “I do not know Mr. Giuliani’s motives for attacking me,” the statement said. “But individuals who have been named in the press as contacts of Mr. Giuliani may well have believed that their personal financial ambitions were stymied by our anti-corruption policy in Ukraine.”

    (Democrat committee members then teased the press with vague superlatives):
    Emerging from the sealed hearing room early in the evening, Rep. Dennis Heck (D-Wash.) said the deposition was more powerful than anything he has heard in his three years on the House Intelligence Committee.

    Yovanovitch at one point got emotional and left the room after discussing “how she was thrown to the wolves,” according to Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.).

    Republicans called for transparency:
    “There is not a single word that was uttered over the course of this entire day that the American public shouldn’t have just been listening to live,” said Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.).

    Former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine testifies Trump removed her based on 'false claims'

    My SN is Aman777 but I couldn't use it on this board. I have never heard of the Palmer Report. Is that one of the "deep state" conspiracy theories the far right is currently pushing? I call it Republican Whining when they are caught up in their own lies.

    Good. I don't like people who use the Lord's name in vain while pretending to be Spiritual. Can you tell us HOW to get to Heaven? Only Christians know. Do you? You can run but you can't hide. It will all come out later Today.

    Sure he can and he can also be impeached for his greedy ways which he and his buddy Giuliani are currently caught with their britches down. Do you think their two cohorts, who are currently in jail, will remain silent, or do you think they will flip instead of dying in prison?

    Her testimony was NOT leaked since she handed out copies of her opening statement to the press before she entered the court. The Inspector General will be able to tell us the Truth after he investigates. Do you trust our fearless leader (with his 12,000 + and counting lies) and his double talking Lawyer? If so, I can offer you a Big Bridge close by. You could probably make a fortune charging tariffs and calling them donations from American citizens for keeping the Bridge in your name. You could even set up a phony Charity if you're as greedy as Trump.

    She was in the way of their evil scheme. Boss Don and his bug eyed lawyer are caught red handed running their evil enterprise, trying to extort the new President out of his Natural Gas. What you don't understand is that the Russian mob has taken over. You will do whatever Boss Don says or he will sell you out for a little Silver. Personally, I can hardly wait since Jesus will return to save us from such as these.

    Taking the words of any sold out Republican, who sucks up to Trump and his lies, is ridiculous. Amen?

    The biggest problem I have is with Trump and his evil ways. FYI, I am in the majority of Americans, not the minority, who have sold their loyalty to the Constitution to a pompous idiot. It could be a fatal mistake since Trump's method of operation is similar to that of a Godfather in the mob. When things get hot, he creates a crisis, like the current one in Syria. Unless he is re-elected, he will continue to ramp up a more terrible situation, which "only he can solve". We are all being held hostage to the wishes of a blowhard, foul speaking, child with Messianic views. The only good that can come is for Jesus to return and stop him and Putin from destroying ALL flesh. Mat 24:22 IMHO
