I disagree....people need some kind of political analysis. Yes, CNN is unwatchable and MSNBC has left bias but that can easily be filtered. If someone is intelligent enough to make their own opinions on C-span, can see through some of Nicole Wallace's emotional outburts... And for God's sake, stop trying to apear balanced by comparing CNN and MSNBC to Fox News "state TV" like propaganda.

I know Fox newscasters show their lack of knowledge every time they open their mouths but I would think Republican Senators would do what they were elected to do and represent the voters and uphold the Constitution. Huffman was jailed for bribing a college with her own money. GOP Senators say it's OK for Trump to bribe a foreign government with taxpayers money. It's Ok for Trump to intimidate witnesses. Trump is a known lier, these witnesses have served the American people with years of devoted service. Which do the Republicans believe

The corruption was within the democratic party ever since they lost the election onto the russian investigation and to what is transpiring today. What a joke. We all can see this and we all know on both sides this is a case of cry baby sore losers. What an example to make for our children to see adults in high places act so poorly. Ukraine corruption is written all over the dems. Do your research the president has the right to investigate corruption. If the corruption has attached one of the candidates he's running against so be it. This is the game they are in. These politicians are getting millions of dollars and acting like spoiled little kids who didn't get their way. And here's the parts the dems are up in arms over - Attorney General Barr and what he discovers. -"justice cometh and that right soon!" Lets see if Biden and the dems are laughing when the shift hits the fan. The best is yet to come folks. You are going to see some real investigations and some big people have to answer for what has been taking place. THEY BROUGHT THIS ON! And let me add they will never get 19 republicans to vote Trump out. It will never happen no matter what these democratic disgruntled employees testify to. You dems should have focused on winning at the ballot box not in a kangaroo court. Never going to turn 19 republicans. sorry. Now deal with what you started! Funny thing is, the ones who will face the music won't be the ones running this kangaroo court. They will walk with egg on her face while the ones in trouble will be all alone to take it in deep up their shifter!

The Ambassador to Ukraine has Trump all a titter as he tweeted away this morning. He is the very depiction of CORRUPTION.

Impeachable offense is when a president steals 10 trillion dollars from us and distributes them among his supporters to insure that his party will be in power forever and will keep stealing. Unfortunately that president belonged to a privileged race. Any questions ?

Not a single comment that has any sense or logic. Just lots of adjectives, zero substance. With these demo rats who needs enemies. What is the impeachment all about ? That Trump is forcing Ukrainians to investigate. As if they are resisting. In fact Ukrainians wanted to investigate Biden, Burisma, Victoria Nuland all along. Except Biden threatened them. All Trump did was to give them ok.

When reporters interview these people, please remind them Article 2 Section 4, and the monument law... and then re-read the transcript. Then ask, if Obama was to do this, how would you feel?

Undeniable proof that 3 out of every 5 trump/fox supporters are as braindead as the other 2 🤭 Fortunately their numbers are not nearly as high as we are being led to believe and soon they like past scourges on our beloved country will be just a bad memory. These United States of America will ALWAYS be free, united and strong. 🇺🇸

• Guy says he’s improved race relations. WTF? Hate crimes are up 40%. White nationalist and KKK organizations have grown significantly. That man is delusional. • The woman says if he was a really bad guy we would know it. Doubtful. My parents only watch FauxNews. I talk to them about extremely important things that he’s said and done and they have no clue and don’t even believe me. - Trump fans get SO angry when you call them low information voters. But low information voters are the only people that would believe the things these people believe from FauxNews. SAD!

Impeachable Offenses committed by Trump: 1) Extortion of Ukraine: ""I need you to do us a favor, though" before supplying Ukraine with previously promised military aid. 2) Abuse of Power: Putting personal political campaign interests ahead of U.S. National Security interests. 3) Quid Pro Quo: "We do that all the time, get over it." Did you not know this modus operandi is the definition of unethical? 4) Obstruction of Justice: Ordering White House personnel Not to comply with congressional subpoenas for impeachment inquiry. 5) Obstruction of Justice: in the Muller probe. 6) Broken Oath of Office: Not upholding the rule of The Constitution supreme. Making exceptions for himself. 7) Embezzlement: Of charitable monies from his own damn charity! 8) Adultery: With a freaking PORN STAR. Eewww, Scummy Husband ! 9) Tax Evasion: Just ask his former hometown, New York City. 10) Collusion with Russia: There WAS evidence of collusion, just not enough to go to trial on. 11) Illegitimate Presidency: How could it EVER be legit when Trump is blatently, out-in-public-on-live-TV asking foreign governments to influence U.S. Elections.

Has anyone noticed the overall age group of Fox News fans. These are Boomers who been through several different Presidencies. They have experienced but..... not perception. These are who havent adapted to modern trends or understand them at all. I'm a Republican who values the social morality of modern society. I study the issues based on the now and not how we can be like before. Times have changed and markets are different. Climate change is actual fact and technology is different then back then. To be honest I'm not surprised on why this age group believes in Trumpism.

And, people should pay more attention to an age group that as a whole, lives at home longer, makes less money, can't start family, in debt, and snorts tide pods.
