  1. Sounds like he is reading a hostage letter, with a gun to his head. You do not need to trust anything, because we know the truth and know that you are in a very bad position, so stay off television.

  2. To all you democratic supporters like it says on the Box of medicine if the problem doesn't go away in a week or 2 you need to go see a doctor must really suck having Red and irritated anus for 3 the last years You don't have to be embarrassed I'm sure the proctologist has seen this condition before

  3. Parnas and others have stated that what they were doing was not in the pervue of Prystaiko and other "actual" officials – they were using back-channel communications. This was corroborated by several of the impeachment hearing witnesses. Just because Prystaiko wasn't involved doesn't mean it didn't happen. Prystaiko is right about reforms, and in fact they passed all the tests needed to release the military aide which was "Approved by Congress". However it was held up for different reasons which had nothing to do with Congress or corruption.

  4. Really! You use a criminal to built your case! How low! CNN is a shadow of it's old self! Actually you're a cult religion. You twist the truth to suit your dogma. It will come back to you. Just remember you are not the government. Capitol Hill is. Don't forget that.

  5. The stupidity in this comment section is par for the libtard course. An indicted man with every motive to lie (Parnas) makes up a story that is disproven by everyone on both sides and is taken for his word over the leaders of both countries involved. Mind-blowing

  6. "Well I understand you have your position, but it's definitely different than what we're hearing from the [strike]American[/strike] CNN side…" well that's some disingenuous bs right there… tired of your group think language CNN.

  7. This is like asking the kid who is being bullied to make a public statement about the bully, and by the way, we cannot protect you. There is no value in what he is saying– it might be true, or it might be self-preservation. Useless.

  8. You idiots can Trump has no rival! There is not a Democrat alive that can not hold a candle to him. There left has no hope. Stealing, lieing,fake news. You lose to bad so sorry. Good bye.

  9. “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.”

    College Psychology 101 tells you that the average human being tends to crow most loudly and indignantly about are the very things he/she is guilty of (or hate most about) him/herself.

    It also helps me better understand these upper level Republicans who refuse to back down in their support of him. Makes me wonder what kind of skeletons are in Jordan’s and Turner’s closets.

  10. Lindsey Graham, Nunes and Fox news hosts like Hannity, Tucker and Ingram have been touting secret investigations for months, to no avail. Then they tried to get Ukraine to announce the same investigations, not caring if they took place as long as they made the announcement publicly. You may not like Biden but realize this could happen to any democratic front runner if left unchecked. These politically driven conspiracy theories are wishful thinking, nothing more…Just sayin'

  11. “Our nation is indeed at a crossroads. Will we pursue the search for truth, or will we dodge, weave and evade the truth? I am of course referring to the investigation into serious allegations of illegal conduct by the president of the United States — that the president has engaged in a persistent pattern and practice of obstruction of justice. The allegations are grave, the investigation is legitimate, and ascertaining the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the unqualified, unevasive truth is absolutely critical.”
    – Mitch McConnell (R) February 12, 1998.

  12. If the Ukrainians were so terrified, why didn't they just announce the investigation ? Then there would have been proof that the aid was conditioned on an investigation. Right now, the only thing that is proven is that there was never any investigation.

  13. The only people who have threatened Ukraine or taking bribes/been on the make are Democrats. The Bidens; the Clintons; the Pelosis and Obama. The entire impeachment sham is a cover-up of this corruption. Anyone can see this is a moron and any journalist covers it up is corrupt.

  14. Trump cannot do anything without committing a crime. This is what you get when you elect a president who most likely flunked every school he ever attended and lost more money in business than any other American. When he loses billions he ust goes to Russians for more money.

  15. The Ukrainians have no choice, for now at least, to not talk ill of Trump in anyway. He's still in power, and he and the GOP can still do damage to Ukraine going forward. They can only protect themselves from a backlash, and I don't blame them one bit for trying desperately not to get sucked into this US mess even further.
