Trump Exposes Pelosi And Son's Ties To Ukraine-Linked Energy Group

"Wow Crazy Nancy, what’s going on? This is big stuff!"

ANd biden has some of that 1.4 billion re-distributed into his bank account, that’s why creepy joe doesn’t want to get called into the impeachment hearings. I’m betting when he does he folds like a double barrel shotgun and more people will be exposed, there really should be quite a few people getting exposed from this. Crazy Nancy is a good start. Don’t be shocked when the clintons get busted as well, what? How else did they become billionaires, it sure wasn’t from speeches and book deals.

Ever notice how Christian food pantries help everyone and Jewish food pantries......only help Jews ? No wonder they've been banished from 109 different countries. Anyway, on this, the final day of Hanukkah, let us remember that to openly suggest that any of these expulsions were the fault of the Jews themselves is now illegal on all college campuses in the US. God Bless America !

Why call Biden into the Impeachment Hearings, when he's not the one being Impeached? Subpoena Trump and put his ass under oath!

Also subpoena Donald Jr. and require him to testify, he's a Government Employee!

Giuliani also would be a good candidate for a subpoena, he's been lying a lot and making money from the Ukraine hand over fist.

Then subpoena McConnell and nail his ass for lying under oath when he swears to be "impartial" during the Trial.

7:15 You call biden in and have him explain his blatant quid pro quo and how nothing was done to him about it and why when Trump makes a call that clearly was not a quid pro quo and he’s being impeached over it, this sets the stage for dismissal. You're not very smart are you.

I'm thinking about opening my own shelter. All the pitbulls will be put down and we will only have good dogs.

Biden can recognize the congressional subpoena as soon as Trump does.

Biden already has released decades of his tax returns actually proving he was one of the poorest members of the senate, not someone pocketing bribes. Again, why wont Trump release his taxes? Why is he suing to keep them secret?

The corruption and lawlessness is inside the current White House.

The lady who said that Jewish food pantries are only open to Jews is wrong: "The JFS Food Pantry, with locations in Overland Park, KS and Kansas City, MO, is the community’s response to the growing need for food assistance in greater Kansas City. Since opening in the Fall of 2012, the struggle against hunger and food insecurity continues to grow. Since 2012 we have more than doubled the number of families served each month to over 400 families. JFS distributes more than 29,000 pounds of food each month to singles, families and older adults. Twenty-five percent of the people served are children under the age of 18. JFS assists people from all walks of life, regardless of religion."

Regardless of religion. And for the record, I'm not Jewish.
