Where was this guy 2 months ago, why was he not involved in the impeachment trial....and really why are we even bothering with any of this when it doesn’t matter, you want corruption look no further then Joe Biden, he admitted it on video, that’s the swamp you should be after, for 3 years there has been a Horse and pony show going on to distract idiots from the fact that The USA is dang near the best it’s been ever. Don’t hate the guy finding the corruption, hate the guy engaged in it.

I read that he claims to have photos with Trump. Photoshop?? I understand that he is out on bail, indicted on federal charges. Could it be possible that the democrats promised him a get out of jail free card to say what they need? He is implicating Pence, too. Hmmm, impeach both Trump and Pence and you have President Pelosi? Could it be that sinister? An actual coup attempt? I would never believe that, if they hadn't been threatening this since the night after the election. Just makes me real suspicious. Maybe they are just getting desperate. Maybe they realize they just stepped in their own doo-doo. We will soon find out.

I’m hoping the senate will wrap this up by next week, they have the votes to shut it down.....they should just vote..... if the USA want to dig some corruption up, we have Quid Pro Joe and don’t forget Obama and Clinton spying on Trump...... both much worse then this very poor excuse for an impeachment..... Let me be clear Trump did nothing wrong and if you think he did then Joe Biden, Barrak Obama, and Hilary Clinton must be put in jail for their crimes were much much worse. And theirs are proven, to ignore this is partisans bias...... This impeachment will go down in history as the greatest fraud placed on a president ever...... Guess they can’t handle the apple cart being tipped over...... this whole group of career politicians needs to desperately be kicked out of office!!!

Pelosi made such a big deal about how impeachment is such a solemn responsibility. Then she turned it into a huge photo op signing event, with souvenir pens delivered on silver platters and handed out to her minions. It even disgusted CNN reporters. She let it show what it is all about. A partisan political stunt. https://hotair.com/archives/ed-morrissey/2020/01/16/cnn-oh-pelosi-handing-souvenir-impeachment-pens-grin/?fbclid=IwAR1-Fsmpv9vwFzPokaClo5CaMDtMkPjMKdEKTHI5hutB5b57gFekb76fkKY

Donald J Trump in 1999, “I think Ken Starr is a lunatic, I really think that Ken Starr is a disaster, I really think Ken Starr was terrible” . Now he hires him to represent him in his upcoming impeachment trial. At the time Donald J. Trump was.a supporter of Clinton. We all know the old saying it takes one to know one, Donald J Trump is a to put it nicely lunatic! If he gets re-elected .this country is totally screwed

Funny how this guy magically appears right before the Senate trial, not unlike the House impeachment inquiry and Kavanaugh hearing. Where was he during the inquiry?

More liberal fake news fodder for you spuds. Enjoy the same result as all the other previous shams.

I just heard that they have emails between Parnas and friend of Rudy, who is Trumps lawyer. And also emails to a friend of Devin Nunes. WOW! What a direct link to Trump!! Almost as direct as the links between Bill and Hillary, and all the people who died under suspicious circumstances.

I better look out. My sister in law is a teacher, and she had a former student on the Maury Povich show after he was convicted of murder. If democrats find out but that, I might be in big trouble.

Made America great again really? The national debt is now at a level not seen since World War II. Amazon paid zero federal income taxes and guess what they opened it’s biggest office building in India that can accommodate 1500 employees. 91 of the Fortune 500 companies paid zero federal taxes. Trump”s motto take from the poor and give to the rich. He wants to cut back on entitlements like social security and Medicare, NEWS FLASH, they are not entitlements , they are programs that folks have paid into all their working lives!

Anamosa, IA BPIowegian@aol.com

What do Sanders and Warren want to do with Medicare? Put EVERYONE on it. How is that going to work? Sanders says no premiums,no deductibles, no copay. How will he pay for it? You can take all of the profits of those 91 corporations and it won't even last a month. They will have to raise taxes on everyone. I already pay tax on 85% of my social security. They will have to raise that to 100% and raise the tax rate crazy high. To cover everyone who doesn't make anything, they will tax my social security, pension and 401K so high I will have to get job just to buy food. The taxes will destroy the economy, lower tax revenue so they can't cover all the medicare costs. So they will add premiums, copays, deductibles to people who will no longer be able to afford it. It will be a Venezuela style socialist implosion.

Well said, Chris.

Roger, what has divided the nation is Hillary and the sore losers. She decided to attack citizens, not candidate. Everyone expected her to attack Trump, but she called citizens deplorable. Big mistake that really divided the nation. And the calls from impeachment that started the day after the election just made it worse. And it made the impeachment look exactly like the political sham that it is.

1st impeachment whee the President is not accused of a crime. No bribery or treason. Abuse of power? No law about that. Article I of the constitution prohibits ex post facto laws. But house democrats think they can make up an unwritten law and charge Trump with violating it after they made it up. And obstruction of Congress? The founders gave us the supreme court to resolve disputes between congress and the President. The democrats ignored that. Made up another unwritten law. All of the democrats who voted for this crap need to be thrown out of office in November.

What is the big embarrassment is the sore loser, childish democrats

Yeah. . . When I first heard that 'abuse of power' accusation... The way they said it seemed to be a character attack rather than a legal argument. Maybe they are attacking both ways, legally and morally, in the hope that one or the other will work but they should stick with one or the other. Its a muddy message from the dems...dividing their lines of attack has weakened both lines of attack.

Sadly there will never be a third party. I hope Trump moves us forward... but I think he enjoys playing in the swamp and playing golf. If thats the case where will we be in four years? Will things like tech tyranny improve? Will poverty decrease? Will Trump make good on his promise to simplify taxes (how can he expect to drain the swamp when this is where the water keeps flowing in?)
We can support him but I think we also gotta keep the fire lit under him. He is a capable president who can get good results. Hopefully that will continue and its not four years of lame duck. He doesnt have as much personal baggage as the opposition.
? Tired of ancient billionaires who have nothing better to do than run for president? Yep. I am... Unless someone lights a fire under them... It's hit the snooze button--wake me up in four more years!!!

Record Deficits......well my friend you would have to go back to Obama’s time in office to find that.....let me guess you were even more enraged during Obama’s time because he had record Deficits and horrible unemployment and Jobs leaving us like a leaking faucet.... And the list goes on..... I bet in your eyes Roger you wanted Obama impeached 100 times worse than you want Trump impeached.... but guess what you don’t always get what you want Obama was never impeached and we made it through his eight years and now Trump is making America great again. Don’t get me wrong I don’t like a high deficit either, in fact we really need to focus on bringing our debt down not up.... but I can absolutely guarantee you one thing.... the democrat candidates Will only make it worse.
BTW here are the numbers, because Numbers matter when it comes to the economy!!!

I guess nobody knows who is going to pay for the record national deficit. I’m old enough and pretty well financially set till I die. I do worry about future generations like kids graduating from college deep in debt, and Trump rolling back more than 90 environmental rules and regulations. Everybody likes a little more money in their pocket but money can’t buy health. Everybody needs clean water and air and health insurance which Obama tried like hell to give us and did the best he could while being fought every step of the way by greedy republicans, and by the way Trump can”t seem to repeal and replace. His own words “I never knew health care was so complicated.” After all he is not the sharpest tool in the shed

Year. Deficit/GDP
2008. 3.1%
2009. 9.8%
2010. 8.6%
2011. 8.3%
2012. 6.7%
2013. 4.0%
2014. 2.7%
2015. 2.4%
2016. 3.1%
2017. 3.4%
2018. 4.0%

If you want to deep dive, look at when democrats owned all three branches of government versus a divided government or when Republicans had control of all three branches of government..... So my argument is Democrats will never ever help the deficit......PROVE ME WRONG!

Chris- Your numbers are correct, but they lack context. Obama inherited the great recession. Unemployment was down, tax revenues were down, and certain temporary stimulus measures were passed that was deficit spending. It took 4+ years to really get the economy growing.

After Trump got elected and the Republicans had control of all the branches of government, they passed a tax cut that's led to increasing deficit as a % of GDP. Given that we're in a time of low unemployment, we should be paying down the deficit. Lots of states, Minnesota included, have been running surplus since the recession and are either giving money back in the form of tax breaks, reinvesting in the state, or building up a rainy day fund for when the next recession hits.

Frankly, the deficit is a bipartisan failure. Spending was constrained and the deficit was going down thanks to compromises like Sequestration (capping military and nonmilitary spending) that went into effect during the Obama years. Even the ACA was paid for in the bill that was passed, though certain elements of the structure for paying for it (Cadillac insurance tax, medical device tax) never went into effect due to bipartisan opposition. Since '16, every time a budget is passed its an orgy of deficit spending.

Yes Craig you are correct but I was making the point that people that claim record deficits from Trump just isn’t the Truth. I’m with you on using the surplus to pay down debt. Debt is what can ruin a country......I’m confident in a strong economy helping with debt, both personal and nationally...... but I’m always nervous of politicians that get extra money because they love spending on new programs instead of paying down debt.....that’s both parties.

Unfortunately for some reason this message board doesn't go back to the GWB presidency. If it did you'd see the same Trump zombies were Bush zombies. Spouting how right and righteous GWB's policies were. They were in lock step with Fox News, George Bush and Dick Cheney. We all know how that Presidency ended. On the way out the door Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson said here are the keys but we're broke. So sorry guys you have no credibility when it comes to your judgment in my humble opinion.

So, Trump goes from being quoted as saying “I don’t know Lev Parnas, I’ve never met Lev Parnas, I know nothing about Lev Parnas”

To this;

https://youtu.be/lZb1kjcumcQ

And the admitting on his beloved Fox News, that he shared a table with him at a small fundraiser dinner where he admits conspiring to fire the lady ambassador.

https://youtu.be/_EzOI7s7u6o

The best part is how the reporter from Fox baited Trump with praiseto get him to admit knowing and conspiring wit Lev Parnas.

You can’t make this stuff up, Classic history being made in the USA.

All ambassadors serve at the pleasure of the President. He didn't have her fired. He couldn't unless she had done something illegal. He just had her re-assigned at the same pay grade. Perfectly legal. I know. I was a federal employee 30 years, took ethics training every year.

Who sets foreign policy? An un-elected career civil servant? Nope. The President. It doesn't matter if he lied about knowing Parnas or just forgot about it. Replacing the ambassador was within his legal power to do so. So the democrats don't like it. Too bad. Disagreeing on policy is not an impeachable offense. Just sour grapes for democrats. Lying about knowing someone who has evidence of him doing his job isn't impeachable either.
