    This is such a farce. This article doesn’t even need to be written. Adam Schiff is as corrupt as Hillary. It is totally obvious this is all another set up. We have the transcript. Nothing criminal or illegal. If Trump can be impeached then both Bidens should be in jail as well as the three senators who wrote a letter threatening the Ukrainian politicians

    The leakers name is Eric Ciaramello. He is not a whistleblower and does not deserve any protections under the law….

    Yes, the Media is fueling this garbage. If the Media in America was HONEST, President Trump’s approval ratings would be the highest of any sitting President.

    Democrats want a better America also, and I am predicting a good many Democrats will be voting for President Trump in 2020!

    Such bullshit. Maybe if the media would equally and legitimately report the news including the LIES and criminal actions of the left – I’d care more about what they report. Here is the whistleblower …. no bias here eh? Do the Democrats have even an ounce of integrity? And why would people support these corrupt A-Holes? If they try again and again to destroy an innocent man – what would they do to a regular citizen if it served a purpose?! People need to be careful what they vote for.

    “As a liberal Democrat, I am appalled at Nancy Pelosi,” Dershowitz, a civil liberties advocate and former Harvard law professor, said Thursday on Fox News. “The idea of her weaponizing the criminal justice system and calling for the imprisonment of the President of the United States without him being charged with any crime, without him being charged with any impeachable offense. It’s just outrageous.”

    It’s time to call him what he is…a leaker. If not then why was the whistleblower law changed to permit his 2nd hand knowledge. According to his attorney in 2017 said this was a coup and a impeachment would follow. It’s time to end this charade…they need to go after Adam Schiff.

      Ask trump enabler Chuck Grassley about the whistleblower laws. He says the identity must be protected.

    The Bidens were engaging in illegal influence peddling with Ukraine, and Trump was investigating it..pure and simple.

    Now that the right has what they wanted – public hearings – they now are attacking the open hearings. Hypocrites one and all.

      Lying Shift for brains should be the first to testify. Only thing hypocritical are the rules the Democrats are runing the committee with.

    “Then, in July 2017, Zaid remarked, “I predict @CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term as president.” Also that month, Zaid tweeted, “We will get rid of him, and this country is strong enough to survive even him and his supporters.”

    “Mark Zaid, one of the attorneys representing the whistleblower at the center of the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry, tweeted conspicuously in January 2017 that a “coup has started” and that “impeachment will follow ultimately.”
