  1. The Russian troll bots are getting more sophisticated. Report and block them when they make points that have been disproved.

  2. Viewers: this is the time to "SAVE" another video to what I call, the "Trump: the Smoking Gun" folder, because a lot of these videos are now showing the gradual, daily progression toward the impeachment of Trump and his removal from office. This title is my own creation, use whatever title you want as these latest videos are presenting the final proven facts leading to the fall of Trump's "presidency". No matter what party you belong to, you'll never forget that you were there when it happened.

    I remember "Watergate" so clearly as we, to our relief, watched the day-to-day fall of Nixon on black and white TV, not believing our own eyes and ears. I can still see Nixon at the top of the helicopter steps, both arms extended and his hands in the well-known "Peace Sign" (two fingers), shoulders hunched, his suit jacket pulled up to expose his white shirtsleeve cuffs, a forced smile on his face as he left the White House for the last time. It was a strange, sad (for his family), but welcomed image. He later was pardoned by the "new" President, but NIxon's CYOA resignation of office was what always remained with us.

    For younger viewers, keep these videos and news articles, because you are living through history. The Historical significance is very similar to those who witnessed the much worse, terrible and unexpected 9-11 tragedies. You were there and you won't ever forget it. Vote Blue. Take care. (No Trolls need to reply nor threaten.) DBB

  3. Look at all the Sheep in the comments thinking they have another lead on taking Trump down 不不不不不不不不不 after all the lies they fell for you would think they would finally see through the fake news but no, they keep falling for it 不不不不不不 lmao Trump 2020 and they know it

  4. Can't stress this enough….Now is the time to get your phone calls in to GOP members!
    Tell our elected senators you've had enough of Trump. Our country's reputation and safety are on the line.

  5. You think Trump isn't capable of such high crimes as this including contract killings? Under Bush's regime, rogue elements in the NSA and CIA worked with Saudi groups to carry out 911. Building 7 collapsed perfectly into its own footprint and wasn't hit by a plane. A CIA office was on the top floor of Building 7 and they all conveniently evacuated before it collapsed, with their laptops. The two towers… it's not hard to do.. There are spaces between floors easily accessible by elevator shaft where a fake elevator repair crew could have access to the support pillars and plant explosives. Chemical traces of thermite a building demolition explosive were found in the dust on cars and rooftops. The parking garage blew up just seconds after the planes hit. The support pillars were massive.. impossible for jet fuel to cause their failure. The hijacked planes were just a distraction from the planted thermite explosive.

  6. It's plain as the NOSE on YOUR FACE with Russia dancing around tRUMP
    HE HAS TO KNOW WHAT HAS/IS GOING ON: "wannabe DICTATOR/KING tRUMP " I get
    replies from tRUMP votes THAT is what THEY want to LIVE in a
    DICTATORSHIP IN THE USA under tRUMP THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ASK FOR " a link to what it was like https://youtu.be/fk7lX6TqV7s "

  7. Donald has spent his life seeking adoration. Yet he will go down in history as one of the most loathed and laughed at douches ever.

  8. 儭 WikiLeaks WikiLeaks I love WikiLeaks..has everybody read WikiLeaks. 45 loves WikiLeaks when it's talking about someone else. The whistleblower is 45 himself..he leaks information all-day everyday. 綾碰S儭儭

  9. Because of my history, I thought I had lost all of my patriotism. However, after hearing the reports on General Vindman testimony. I felt pride, not only In him but all the people who have come forward.

  10. The missing bit in the transcript is where tRump spelled out 'the favor though' which was unless you do me a favor you won't get the cash. Now it makes sense why tRump has said 'read the transcript' it will exonerate me….because we have taken out the parts that will get me impeached.

  11. It's amazing that a person can believe someone who has lied 13,000 times before to the public, is trusted over so many other common and good people who are just as American as you and I…who are just doing their daily government jobs. The amount of cognitive dissonance hurls and hoops one has to go through is mind numbing…instead of acceptance the obvious. Just because you like someone and elect them, doesn't some how magically make them a good person, an honest person, a credible person.

  12. We all know announcing a great ( dont confuse with " greatest " ) Black president grins you're gears. Black people are looked at as bottom feeders in our food chain, scary, thugs, murders etc
    So how can a Black be so successful at becoming president? What are the odds ( 43 white men before him )…were forgetting how be came into office after Bush!!
    He gets no credit and his skin color determines that unfortunately.
    Trump is not only white washing and criminally erasing what Obama has done in office. In other words Blacks cant be great if if they are…. If they are then you'll make sure they will never have a second chance… Yes I said it…
    Drops mic

  13. There are but a few honest people in this administration and they are all hero's for trying to stop Trump and GOP corruption and treasonous action against the American people

  14. You think his supporters are going to take his impeachment sitting down? It will get worse than with Trump as president.

  15. The Religious Right has hitched their wagon to Trump because they want another right leaning justice. ABORTION. Of course much of the south is still celebrating the civil war which they lost so they support trump. And then here are the people that just believe what Trump is selling. They will stay with Trump until he is led from the Whitehouse in chains.

  16. It is paramount that our Country hold Trump responsible. If he cant be shot. He needs to spend the rest of his life in Fort Leavenworth or worst place.

  17. Still waiting for verification of the Steele Dossier being used as evidence for a FISA warrant. Still waiting for charges against Hillary Clinton for deleting subpoenaed emails. Still waiting for charges against Brennan and Clapper for lying to the FBI and outsourcing spying. Still waiting for charges against Hillary Clinton for destroying evidence with hammers and erasing her illegal server. Trump committed no crime. Tick Tock.

  18. Trump is a traitor and lying sak of sht. Vindman confirms that trump lied about removal of incriminating statements in the transcript. The House has no choice, but to impeach this poor excuse for a president.

  19. Don't worry white baby boomers still not going to hold the president accountable why maybe because a mental capacity is gone maybe they just don't want to say they made a mistake

  20. Can you imagine the outrage, and absolute pandemonium if a Democratic President attacked the character of a man with the credentials of Colonel Vindman?

  21. Trump and his five time deferments sent five people to die for him how many people lives has he screwed up for his

  22. Republicans stop the cover ups,distraction and lies
    America people and country American troops , Millitary
    should always come first
    Stop this Trump administration Stop Trump

  23. Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi will rule the House and the Senate.
    Mitt Romney is s latter day Saint and he agrees that Trump is not welcome

  24. I would like to know what Joe and his son have to do for the money. Obama investigated Trump. Vindman is a brave man. We the people, really want to know what is going on?

  25. of course, the transcript was edited, trump knew it couldn't be handed over as it actually was. telling the truth was not on his resume.

  26. See if you can get some more old white men on this show please. You don't have enough white male privilege oozing out of this broadcast.

  27. What a mess a senseless, power hungry, ignorant person can do to a country that put its trust in him, do.
    The worst is that powerful rich backed him

  28. The cover up is what bagged so many back in 1974. Looks like there will be a good harvest this time too. Cover ups do not work.

  29. Come on Trump let's see the full transcript of that phone calland then maybe you can complain that you're being treated unfairly.

  30. —> No good luck to obstructionist Republicans from me. Undermining our elections is also a danger to national security. I wouldn't say the phone summary is inaccurate, only incomplete.

  31. That guys opinion is just as valid as my chihuahua who happens to think he deserves a Purple Heart for being born in America.

  32. If you speak aloud the text of the transcript it comes out to be about 5 minutes of conversation, but the length of the call was recorded at close to 翻 hour. Do they think the rest of it was just talking about the weather?

  33. 4:18 I can help you with that, Lawrence. Trump had it removed because it made him look stupid as he didn't know the exact details of the Biden tape he was talking about, that it wasn't at all what he thought it was. Trump committing crimes because of his ego and his fragile personality, I love it. Imagine if Nixon deleted some of his White House tapes not because it was incriminating but because he wasn't recorded well…. I know the comparison would work better if it was something that made Nixon sound dumb but we are talking about Nixon here…
    This is where we are now. Dumbest Watergate.

  34. trump is treading water the best he can…and so are the "oh but Hillary" misdirecting people like Fox news…they know the gravy train is leaving and won't be back for a long time.

  35. USA Army Col. Vindmin appears to to be the only LOYAL one to America when it comes to abiding by oathes that were taken. IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP.

  36. Sadly, your republicans, and US citizens who would support them, are not capable of recognizing integrity, because their own moral core is vacant. This fact should strike real fear in every moral adult.

  37. Spanky Tweetie Twump: Why go to experts and people who know what they are doing? When you got the Ghouliani ! And sycophants coming out of the Ying yang. Twump wants idiotic toadies! Idiots like him.

  38. Some, including myself, have been saying the original transcript needs to be released.. it should have from the onset. After the colonels testimony , I serioustly doubt it exists any more, and a another bastardized version is now in its place.

  39. Trump is going to fire that General because that General went against him. Anybody tell the truth on Trump is going to lose their job.

  40. Wow. Moronald lied on his version of the transcript? Now there's a shock. NOT. Moronald should go to prison and will, for bank fraud money laundering and a host of other crimes. SDNY will have him do 20, in 2020. He is a crook and a monster that separates child from mother and is a low brow racist bigot. RepubliCONS STILL back him, that says it all.

  41. * * * Donald J. Trump is unmistakably Beelzebub incarnate.
    Who was Beelzebub?
    Answer: Beelzebub is the Greek form of the name Baal-zebub, a pagan Philistine god worshiped in the ancient Philistine city of Ekron during the Old Testament times. It is a term signifying the lord of flies (2 Kings 1:2). Archaeological excavations at ancient Philistine sites have uncovered golden images of flies. After the time of the Philistines, the Jews changed the name to Beelzeboul, as used in the Greek New Testament, meaning lord of dung. This name referenced the god of the fly that was worshiped to obtain deliverance from the injuries of that insect. Some biblical scholars believe Beelzebub was also known as the god of filth, which later became a name of bitter scorn in the mouth of the Pharisees. As a result, Beelzebub was a particularly contemptible deity, and his name was used by the Jews as an epithet for Satan.

    We MUST do this for our children.

  42. impeachment is the only future. and the future is now. lunacy and deceit is prevalent among the President and the highest level of the Administration. BARR / PENCE/ MULVANEY/ GUILIANI. WE WITNESS YOU.

  43. Is this new reporting will change GOP and trump's supporters away from trump?? If not then they don't love our country, but love a corrupt president

  44. Higher profile agents are mentioning "undisputed quid pro quo" And silly argument process. "The voice of the people" is the voice of "The Almighty power."
    Good luck to ruling authority.

  45. As a disabled former US Army Veteran I am brought to tears and exceedingly proud of my US Army superior Lt. Col Vindman.

    I too came to the United States as a child at the tender age of 3 and became a Naturalized United States Citizen.

    For many years I thought of ways to show my gratitude to a country that has provided me with so many opportunities. So at the age of 19 I joined the United States Army by way of RELAXING JACKSON aka Fort Jackson :). Those were the best years of my life because they taught me love of country, integrity, honesty and selfless commitment to my brothers and sisters in arms against all threats both foreign and "DOMESTIC."

    Sir you're making all of us Veterans proud despite of the branch we served because situations like these which threatens our Great Republic makes all of grateful for having an opportunity to service our country. I am sure that there are countless Veterans who feel as strongly as I do. Again, thank you sir!

  46. FOKING SONDLAND GAVE ONE MILL TO TRUMPS CAMPAIGN, N GOT IT BACK FOR ONE OF HIS HOMES REMODEL, PLUS WHAT ELSE WE DONT KNOW!?!?!? , GREEDY THIEVES, IMPEACH TRAITOR TRUMP NOW, FIRE SONDLAND, n SENT TO PRISON!!!!!!!!

  47. Can someone tell me how draft dodging president can try to discredit a medal wearing officer of the United States military.

  48. Wow is this guy nuts hes making up the news Lake area 51 Rachel Get trump lie Lie make up the news attack attack attack of the deep state exposing how corrupt in fake you all really are

  49. Why are we fussing with Ukraine's internal politics? Because we can. We brought about a Color Revolution that required a little push where the shreds of Nazism still exist. Because of the "greed" basis of our economic system, we will befriend anybody, be he a monarch, genocidal murderer, etc. irrespective of their sins so long as they pay us fealty. T
    Our "national interest" is to suppress other major powers especially those that have a different philosophic trajectory than we. We have plenty of oil but we want control of global oil to steer the world to our image.
    None of the talking heads will address the real reason why we "care" about Ukraine. It's the same way we care about Yemen. Russia and Iran are the reason. We are generally silent when genocide
    is taking place. We really care about our fellow humans. These atrocities will continue as long as military industrialists write the laws.

  50. A great deal of Fox News honors the military. Republicans risk attacking the military at their own peril. Like every congress-person getting attacked 10x/day on every channel showing their attacks on the military with a lot of appropiate labes of traitor, treason, the real Benedict Arnold in our midst.

  51. a pause in the conversation…
    has anyone ever seen the demented waste-of-skin pause in a conversation?
    #dirtyoledon is a motormouth:
    he couldn't stop talking if his life depended on it
    and it does,
    and he can't (you may have noticed)

  52. You guys are funny…every time is something bigger and bigger…FOOLS….lol…just because you want the President impeached…wow…crazy MEDIA….

  53. Their way too corrupt to even be the powers at be in this country.. to investigate corruption they should start with TRUMP!!!

  54. The hilarity of trump…..he threw in…"it sounds horrible to me"…Being for America first and all. (really caring, oh dear, it's horrible)…LOL. The hammer is falling on this moron, his staff, and the sitting republican government…Each and every one of them have FAILED the USA, and are busted…Now, they can only talk about process, do mass idiotic childlike moves that won't get them anywhere. Pelosi owns trump..she owns them all…this is not her first go round with children who need to be put in their respective places.

  55. Sondland 2016: let me see if I can purchase an ambassadorship for one million bucks … Sondland 2019: let me see if I can purchase myself out of jail for ten confessions and one hundred truths …

  56. why has trump's internation criminality overshadowed his numerous domestic criminalities against the 99% and the constitution? and the same criminalities re gop, etc?
