  • A reminder of why I donโ€™t watch the Late Night Show. Nobody enjoys their political beliefs being spat upon. Colbert is pretty childish. There are more people in America than just the democrats. Your audience is too narrow Colbert.

  • You do know if witnesses were allowed it wouldn't just be Bolton. The defense would call the so-called whistle-blower, then Schiff to see how much he lied, then all those who testified in the House that the GOP were never allowed to question. Then there's the IG testimony that Schiff is refusing to release (gee, why is that?).

  • Pffft.... Well ladies and gentlemen; the time is <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="420">7:00</a>PM EST and that proverbial _"pressure"_ has been reduced to a vacuum. There will be no witnesses, period. There will be no possible way to impeach. The man you've made mockery of (showing him balancing on a peach), will now be dancing on that whimsical peach. Don't get me wrong: I think him, his cronies, the cabal that allows people like him to float through life with no accountability, represents what _"the devil"_ actually is. Nonetheless, I'm clear enough to know, that there's not stopping a power regime that is able to convince millions that they live in a "Democracy", but impose upon those same people Heads-of-State that don't have to win popular votes. Your "Democracy" died a long time ago (IF it ever existed).

    WildwoodClaire1WildwoodClaire1Month ago
  • Bullshit! The Republicans feel no pressure at all to allow witnesses because they are utterly corrupt and utterly shameless. They are on the cusp of granting Donald Trump quasi-dictatorial powers and it is likely that the last [semi-]legitimate American federal election took place in 2018. The 2020 election, if it takes place at all, is likely to be about as legitimate as the March 1933 German election after the Reichstag Fire.

  • I think it's more likely that when he went back to check where Kelly had pointed at, he mistook The Black Sea for the Bay of Bengal, since Bangladesh and Ukraine occupy similar positions in relation to those bodies of water. For his next public address Pompeo will be discussing how Dracula came from Nagpur and then on to his lecture on The Tigers of Bulgaria...
