                Pence is as bad as trump, quiet and sneaky. He's also a part of the Ukraine scandal.

                  Justice Robert. Has already lied, by saying that trump is a honest president that doesn't lie. We all know that's a lie.

                            I am sorry to say - but America has turned into the GUTTER POLITICS of the world. So embarrassing and shameful. Cant even hold a trial - just partisan politics. They forget they serve the Constitution and American people - not any President now or in the future! Presidents come and go - that's a fact.

                                    We rely on Judge Roberts to judge truthfully, impartial and most not swayed from the truth. May the Lord show him the righteous. AMEN

                                      The Trump administration secretly approved the transfer of nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia after the killing of Jamal Khashoggi without informing Congress.

                                      One transfer was signed off 16 days after the journalist was murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October and a second came in February. The remains of Khashoggi, 59, a Saudi-born US resident have never been found.

                                                Apparently republicans need to be reminded that they are not the majority and they don't get to decide when the inquiry is over! The Democrats will decide when they have all the evidence they feel they will need. The actions of repubs in the last few days should be an embarrassment to anyone who calls themselves a republican!

America is the linchpin of democracy what hits democracy in America will hit other countries with democracy as well . It is all tied together in one form or another and because America is linchpin of democracy itself a lot of people can get hurt if we go down. I for one do not want to hurt anyone. Get a grip people.

I understand that J Roberts is not an elected official, but he is Republican. I have yet to see a Republican stand up to the clown in the White House. John Roberts will not step up and “do the right thing” because he is in government. They are all corrupt. All of them.
