ATLANTA - As public impeachment hearings enter a second week, a majority of Americans have said their opinions on the impeachment of President Donald Trump were formed weeks ago, and many question whether anything will change when the process concludes. "I'm not a politician. I can't say that he should be removed, but he's guilty," Robin Walton told ABC News on her way to Sunday services at Ebenezer Baptist Church in downtown Atlanta. "You cannot extort or bribe a foreign government into getting dirt on a political opponent to sabotage our free elections." More than two-thirds of Americans in a

Comments:

ABC wanders into a hive of Trump-hating Democrats, but still doesn't get the reaction they want. Most see the kangaroo court show trial as a huge waste of time.

I wonder what the reactions would be if the media that these lemmings follow had not already declared him guilty.

When a poll shows that a majority of Black Americans believe that the Democrats and their liberal media allies are in cahoots to frame and screw “The Donald” out of the Presidency, common sense will tell you that the Democrat impeachment inquisition is in trouble.

We knew it in 2016 when Hillary began spouting her pathetic excuse-of-the-day and paid somebody to write "What Happened" for her. A woman who allowed four good people to be murdered in a State Department/CIA screwup was lecturing us for her failure against the deplorables. We saw the lies and corruption through three years of Russia, Russia and knew that she and Barack were behind it. We saw it on the first day of the Schiff Show when he tried to nail a good Navy SEAL, Joe Maguire, and had his butt handed to him in a basket. How anybody can take these childish clowns seriously will always be a mystery to me.

I told him to tell president Ukrainevskya to shut down Joe Biden and his stoned kid or he could kiss the BILLION goodbye in 6 hours (waiter I'll have the turtle soup and make it snappy) and Donny actually did it.

I don't suppose that robin or any other of her mindless and ignorant leftist Americans ever entertained the thought that perhaps the only reason that biden is running for President is so that he would be able to say that any investigation of his family corruption was political. The demoncrats certainly do not want any investigation of the Ukrainian corruption scandal, because they are all involved. They have to point the finger at President Trump to divert from their own guilt. Since when did Congress get involved in our foreign policy? That is the responsibility of the President and the Executive Branch.

"I'm not a politician. I can't say that he should be removed, but he's guilty," This is why I pull out my, admittedly lessening hair when I hear or talk to a brain dead leftist. They have no sense of logic. What is he guilty of? So far, and I've quit watching the live hearings because they just repeat the same stupid lines and blather on about how obvious this how clearly that. Then you get to the crunch and everybody acknowledges that they don't actually have any real evidence of criminal activity.

Tulsi Gabbard trashed the Democratic Party as “not the party that is of, by and for the people,” accused Kamala Harris of trafficking in “lies and smears and innuendo” and attacked Pete Buttigieg as naive.

LOS ALTOS HILLS, Calif. — Former President Barack Obama urged Democrats on Thursday to “chill out” about the party’s 2020 field and to avoid putting candidates through “purity tests,” and warned that average voters are “nervous about changes that might take away what little they have.” Speaking to party donors a day after the latest Democratic primary debate, Mr. Obama added to a series of recent remarks about American politics and the presidential race, including his warning on Friday that the candidates not move too far to the left in their policy proposals and his observation that the average American

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren tore into Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for attending a previously undisclosed meeting with President Trump at the White House in October, accusing the tech billionaire of intentionally cozying up to the administration as his company faces increased scrutiny from regulators and Democratic lawmakers. "Amid antitrust scrutiny, Facebook is going on a charm offensive with Republican lawmakers," Warren wrote in a series of tweets on Thursday.

Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg's success in recent polls suggests he has a big target on his back — one that, if not skillfully negotiated, could cost him the Democratic nomination. Buttigieg’s campaign is surging, just in time for Wednesday’s Democratic presidential primary debate in Atlanta. Once an obscure long shot, Buttigieg has wedged his way to the top of a field featuring Democratic candidates Vice President Joe Biden and Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Buttigieg is leading in the Iowa polls, with 25% of voters in one survey saying he’s their first choice for president. Since September

Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg's night-and-day campaigns in Iowa and South Carolina clearly show both why he's such a formidable opponent and also why he remains a longshot to win the nomination. In Iowa, he surged into first place after hitting Elizabeth Warren hard on how she would pay for her massive Medicare expansion. In South Carolina, he's navigating troubling accusations that his campaign grossly overstated black support for his sweeping platform for African Americans. Here's what it means in the short term. For the first time, he's going to have a target on his back when he walks onto the

Joe Biden leads most polls; Elizabeth Warren has sometimes been considered the real frontrunner; Pete Buttigieg is surging in Iowa. Where does that leave Bernie Sanders? I spoke with politics editor Ezekiel Kweku and senior writer Eric Levitz about whether the Vermont senator has been underestimated in recent weeks, and what his path to the nomination might look like. Ben: Just a few weeks ago, Bernie Sanders suffered a heart attack and told a reporter he’d be cutting back on his vigorous campaign schedule — a remark he quickly took back.

Amid months of speculation, Stacey Abrams said that she would be “happy” to run for vice president alongside the Democratic nominee. Abrams is the 45-year-old former Democratic nominee for Georgia governor who lost a close race against Republican Gov. Brian Kemp in 2018. She has repeatedly tamped down rumors that a meeting she held in March with Joe Biden, 76, was to discuss running as his number two.

GOP Rep.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., applauded his colleague on producing "the real bombshell" of Sondland's long-anticipated testimony and marked the moment as "game over," for the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry. That inquiry is focusing on an alleged quid pro quo between President Trump and Ukraine linking military aid and White House access to Ukraine probes beneficial to Trump.

"President Trump takes action on a Friday afternoon — Monday morning, the admiral [Adm.

Vice President Joe Biden claimed Wednesday that he came “out of the black community” when discussing his political support during the fifth Democrat presidential debate. “I come out of the black community in terms of my support,” Biden said, noting that three former chairmen of the Congressional Black Caucus had endorsed his campaign as well as “the only African-American woman who’d ever been elected to the United States Senate.” (That claim was incorrect, an obvious gaffe that was fact-checked in real-time by Sen. Cory Booker and Sen. Kamala Harris on the debate stage)

The House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment hearing Wednesday posed a conundrum. Better yet, let’s call it a riddle. When is a “quid pro quo” not a “quid pro quo?” The answer is … when it’s “presumed.” U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland testified that there was a “quid pro quo” between the U.S. and Ukraine, even though President Trump made it crystal clear to Sondland that there was no “quid pro quo.” So, how did the ambassador arrive at his opinion that a “quid pro quo” must somehow exist? It turns out that he assumed or “presumed” it. At one point, he called it a mere “guess.”
