            Revisiting this and it is amazing to watch Nunes sit there and talk all this while not disclosing what he had been doing. He wanted to know the whistleblower to know if that person was going to tell on him. Nunes needs to go down.

              *EJ's BREAKING NEWS*: The plot: State Department official alerts Yovanovitch get on next flight to the United States. The hit was on! We will find out soon. Did it come from the White House? What role did Trump, Giuliani, Nunez, Parnas have in the hit? Maybe Barr, Bolton, Rick Scott will also have a hand in it. Time will tell.

                    This testimony goes to show how stupid Republicans voters are due to their Representatives' disgusting and disingenuous performance, particularly Nunes and Miss Stephanik. Those 2 have been in Congress for more than a term, which mean they KNOW exactly what the rules are and how a testimony is run in the House. And yet they act like Schiff is trying to interrupt and stop them 4m doing their part, making him seem unruly. Only Republicans would play dirty like that. If u all cant see that, then ya must be dumber than rocks, and we as a country are doomed.

                      Barr ordered Epstein killed @the request of his lord & master Drumpf. Epstein would’ve revealed all about Drumpf’s eating underage Peaches.

                        This Yanovich c*nt should be (and likely is) investigated to the depth of Trump investigation. She has committed enough crimes to put her in prison for life, and all her apparatchiks like Obozo, Hillary, Nancy, Brennan, Commie, they allllll are just as guilty. Hang them all.

                          Ok, so a little bit of background information: I am trying my best to understand this issue of impeachment. I've started to look at videos like this one, and so far there has been nothing that even screams impeachment from what I have seen so far. First off, Schiff keeps silencing Republicans, which does not make people take him seriously. Sorry buddy, but you need to let the Republicans speak. Now in his defense, he let them speak after a while, but I would've loved to have heard what the Republicans wanted to say in the beginning.

                          #2. So this former U.S. Ambassador to the Ukraine. So, I'm not here to dismiss her credentials, nor am I here to belittle her story. She did a very hard and honorable thing for the Ukraine, and that's not something that's easy I'm sure. I know I couldn't do it.

                          However, what does this have to do with impeachment? This is a story about how devastated a former U.S. Ambassador was when she had to not go to the Ukraine anymore all because of a "plan" to derail her ever being a U.S. Ambassador to the Ukraine again. I still don't even really know what "plan" was carried out. The only evidence we have of something remotely related to a plan, was 2 phone calls and a Tweet or 2, all of which gave no real indication of any plan to get her from continuing to be an Ambassador.

                          I also don't understand that if this position was so important to Marie, why didn't she contact Human Resources about it and demand steps be taken to file an appeal? I don't think anyone, even Trump, would be opposed to it. But, my thinking is, she obviously didn't contest the decision, so, it must've not been that much of a blow to her. It's not like she's jobless, she still has a job, just not the Ambassador to the Ukraine.

                          But my main question still remains, what does this have to do with impeachment. Are you telling me that putting an ex Ambassador to work doing something else is cause for impeachment? Cause if that's the case , then no, I don't see that as a cause for impeachment. She's at the "pleasure of the President." If she has a problem with it, and truly wanted something done about it, instead of making a big scene, she should've just contacted HR or whomever to do something about it.

                          I still have yet to figure out the real reason for impeachment. I don't like this Schiff. He seems like a very shady character to me, so I don't trust him. I'll continue following this.

                          Oh well, if this goes to court, hopefully I can get an answer or at least an idea of what Trump did for cause of impeachment.

                            A lot of calm and reasonable questions here. The Ambassador (Marie) also didn't explain the "smear campaign," actually no one has that I've seen. I echo your desire for questions and dis-ambiguity here, but it won't happen. The corrupt politicians best chance is to use propaganda and hegelian-dialectic. Make people so emotional they won't use reason and logic. If they hate Trump and what he symbolizes to them (whatever boogeyman of the time, Climate Crisis, Immigration/Migrants) enough, the truth isn't as relevant.

I hope she obtains her position back in office when the new president takes the seat.

That's why we have to work hard to understand not just the complicated policies and politics but each other, too. Those clips referenced seem to be innocuous; testimony in the second one even corroborates Yovanovitch's original deposition. Let's remember: She didn't lie - she was being lied _about_ by corrupt Soviets (One is here: Those lies fooled Trump, and - in addition to Rudy Giuliani's business interests - are why Trump recalled her.

                                                                    You're right - there is a coup going on, and it's failing.

                                                                    We can't avoid getting fooled sometimes. POTUS did. Most of the GOP did. Millions of us did - at first. Giuliani is a different story - he seems to be pursuing the easiest path to expanding his personal business empire (and now has two cronies indicted for making illegal campaign contributions; they're also in the domestic cannabis industry). Listen to Holmes today, bearing witness with the blow-by-blow story from his vantage point inside the Ukraine embassy.

                                                                    There's a lot of truth in the inquiry. The problem is that it's really complicated, and most of us don't have the time to digest it all.

                                                                    @1:10:15 and @4:44:00. So please tell me again how no one is above the law when these people are flat out lying. This is a coup! Everyone said Burisma should be invested and once President Trump started investigating, you people started yelling all your nonsense completely forgetting that Biden hasn't even won the Democratic nomination. So of all people why would President Trump care about him directly? - He didn't! He cared about corruption.

People are coming forward, it seems like a lot of boys were targeted. People are calling for Jim Jordon to resign and investigated. What a monster. This is the representative that the republicans choose to speak for them? How many more Republicans are child molesters? I'll just bet Nunes is for sure. Very sick individuals
