            The only reason the crooked democrats got the majority in the house was because corrupt democrat Mueller delayed the outcome of the investigation by at least a year.

                Hey, nyt. You're such a great company for the longest time. If anyone can find out anything, i'm sure you would be able to. Can you please talk about why pelosi, biden, kerry and romney's kids are all on the board of directors in energy companies doing business with Ukraine? can you please fine out if there is corruption involved? isn't there a conflict of interest since their parents (that is, PELOSI, BIDEN, KERRY AND ROMNEY) are supposedly working for the American government?

                  From what I read this is a normal practice for polititians and there is nothing illegal in that unless you prove someone abused his or her power. In case of Biden, US goverment demended for resignation of Zlochevsky because he supposedly didn't fight against corruption enough. At the time a lot of foreign leaders were interested in Ukrainian corruption. And the investigation against Hunter's company was all about wrongdoing that occurred before Hunter was hired. Hope I helped.

                              NYT is a partisan rag.
                              The people who work there are lairs and/or racists.
                              The "Paper of Record" has become the "Enemy of the People".
                              NYT is implicit in the coup currently being attempted by the traitors in the Democrat party.
                              There are good reasons why NYT is failing and will continue to do so until they go under.
                              The New York Times has made themselves irrelevant.

                                            What they did actually harmed the country. What trump is doing is just threatening to expose the truth about shady politicians and here they are doing a shady impeachment because of it. We live in a dark time when the government is using corruption to cover up its own corruption.

You blasted idiots have to give up! over and over and you lead your blind ignorant viewers down this path of impeaching POTUS. It ain't gonna happen imbeciles, Dems are frauds and liars just like The New York Slime. How many did you imbeciles lay off this month eh?

                                              Lol this just shows the democrats know the have no chance in 2020. So they go too rerun session. And talk nonsense. You really should be talking about Omar and how she should be impeached over immigration fraud and Joe Biden and his son who truly did something wrong. And what ever happened too Kavanaugh. One more bs story you had a little bit ago. Suddenly that disappeared. Haha.

                                                                                        I don't think the American public realize just how serious this is. The only thing that keeps a president from becoming a dictator is the honor and morality of said president. This president has neither and is pushing hard for "my word is law, try and stop me." With the aid of a corrupt DOJ and the republican party, there is absolutely nothing to stop him. Nothing! What is the congress going to do if Trump decides that he is going to abolish congress? What will they do if Barr decides that anyone that doesn't support Trump has committed crimes? The only remedy is that both the congress and the senate have the moral clarity to stop him and I don't think we can count on the senate republicans.

If he has done all the bad things the Dems say he has done...he should go to jail. If he proves the swaps is as bad as he says it is, he will win the next election by a land slide. I hope the good politicians in Washington can sort this mess out.

CIA changes the whistleblower rules on the first of August, and on Aug the 12th the CIA leaker makes a whistleblower complaint. Just another soft coup d'etat attempt by the last administration.
