    Ari is a liar and a schill. The President at no time said, "Hey Zelinsky. I want you to do "x" or you won't receive "y". The rabid braindead left is MANUFACTURING a non-crime in order to besmirch the character of the President of the United States of America. The Demonkrauts openly lied and are openly supported by the lying left Demonkraut liberals. No Russian Collusion. No obstruction of justice. No damning evidence. The transcript and actual, in person witnesses, debunk the Demonkrauts narrative.
    Anyone that sees a violation or a crime in the entire transcript is a liar is mentally unstable. Ari is a lying ,biased piece of Schitff.
    I believe that those that are pro-impeachment are also pro-Communist China. Pro-corruption by Joe Biden. Pro-treasonous Obama and Hillary. anti-American, anti-Constitution, anti- due process, anti-freedom. And apparently, anti-intelligent thought!
    When the liberal Nazi Leftist Demonkrauts comes for your food, your family and your guns. When they have taken absolute control of your language, speech and thought. When, you happily agree to live in a military state, curfews, no freedoms and totalitarianism under the globalist, Demonkraut leftist anti-American regime. When, your food is rationed and you are wrongfully imprisoned without the same due process that you are denying to the President of the United States of America. Remember, that today, and in the elections is where you had the opportunity to choose AMERICAN FREEDOMS over Demonkraut party politics. AND, YOU FAILED!!!

    This is the same Jay Sekulow who along with Trump and Giuliani bold faced lied and said the Mueller Report was “Total exoneration”.

    Trump’s strategy is to send his people on TV and twist the conversations in the direction they want them to go.

    Ari is a leftist, lying immoral hack! PERIOD. He wouldn't let Jay make or finish a sentence or point. Constantly and continually talked over him. It wasn't an interview, it was a one-sided strong arm interrogation. Anyone supporting this style of interrogation should enjoy it when it's your turn under the knife. This wasn't journalism, it was typical leftist Socialist globalist Demonkraut punditry. Adolf Hitler, Lenin, Marx and Stalin would have been proud. I bet people like Ari also helped celebrate 70 years of Communist rule in China. Because that is what people that like Ari are openly promoting and hoping for. And, you will receive it with the Demonkraut party! You'll get what you politically deserve. Pieces of Schitff

    Jay THE WEASEL Sekalow is an unscrupulous evil devils advocate. He can twist the truth with well crafted lies. Trump denied asking for the Ukranians to help him get corruption information on Joe Biden and his Son. Then releases a redacted transcript, because the whistleblower blew his lies out of the water. I told you these weasels will execute executive privilege. I do not see that, Jay the weasel, when out of his own mouth he solicited a foreign country, China to look into the investigation of his political opponent. When the news Reporter asked the mutated Yeti What exactly did you WANT the President to do when you asked him. The Mutated Yeti turned burnt orange and said are you talking to me? The news media is fake news. And people like you buy into it.
    When asked the same question a day after he clearly told us to investigate the Bidens. Now devils weasel advocate, we have the solicitation. Its the receiving or withholding the favor, that you evil devils are denying and lying about. You know Mr. Weasel like holding up 392 million in military Javelin, anti tank missiles. We somewhat have some of that. Oh and yeah Jay i will give credit, where credit is due. You keeping the unstable evil wingnut, from testifying in the Mueller investigation, is why he has this much time to lie to us some more. But this one right here will sink us some 35000 feet right in the whale fecal matter.

    They are doing the same thing with the transcript as they did with the Mueller report. Diverting and distorting facts. They interrupt, scream, accuse, and threaten. They think this tactic will work again. Unfortunately, it does convince the hardcore Trump backers who don't want to examine the facts.

    Sekulow must understand that Trump violated his oath of office in asking the newly elected leader of Ukraine to launch an investigation into a domestic political rival. Trump's request for "a favor" constitutes a prima facie case of a president exploiting the awesome power of office in furtherance of a personal, and partisan, goal. Trump blatantly trampled on Article II of the Constitution. Given Sekulow's current role, he won't admit to that which is spelled-out in a basic civics education. His only integrity-saving option would be to resign as Trump's counsel.

    I read the transcript. There is no crime.

    It had nothing to do with Trump's campaign, zero, nada! In the call, he briefly followed up on some unresolved corruption issues and made passing reference to something that involved Biden. This interviewer is twisting words out of context. This was not an interview. It was a one sided, very biased interrogation.

    I do not understand the GOP at all. You cant tell me that many can see Trump destroying everything. Are these Americans or plants to do just that. I don't care who voted for who or what is the party of choice. If your much loved child's runs around with the scissors, you take them away. The presidency should be taken away from Trump as well as well as the whole lot. Do these people love party over country? No country, no party. Simple.

    Sekulow keeps asking how it violates the law…but a violation of the law isn't required for impeachment. Then he goes straight into whataboutism. I wonder if he's going to be this flustered when he's actually putting on his defense?

    Also, if Giuliani does not work for the White House, he cannot claim executive privilege; and if he is not being paid or does not have a letter of intent, then–from what I understand–he isn't technically the lawyer of record and cannot claim attorney-client privilege. Also, when it comes to knowledge of currently-occurring crimes or involvement in crimes, the attorney-client privilege does not apply

    These Trump lawyers would try their best to convince the public that fish don’t actually live in the ocean and that the sun actually revolves around the earth and the only poor souls that would actually buy their arguments without question are Trump supporters.

    When the reporter asked Trump:

    “What exactly he hoped Zelensky would do about the Bidens after his phone call. Exactly?”

    and Trump answered by stating….”Well, I would think if they were honest about it, they would start a major investigation in to the Bidens…….”

    Forget statues or laws for a moment, plain logic and common sense will let you know that Trump just admitted to the “INTENT” of his phone call with Zelensky.

    Sometimes when interpreting law, judges and courts will refer to what is called the “spirit of the law”
    What is the “spirit of the law” and what are our laws that govern….soliciting foreign interference in an election actually trying to discourage a politician from doing?
    Did Trump not clearly establish his INTENT in such a manner as to VIOLATE that “spirit of the law” with his answer to that reporter?

    9:41: Jay Sekulow just offered among the best arguments to date to impeach Trump. What Sekulow just told us is that we the constituents are not allowed to ask our elected officials about illegalities during their official duties due to executive and attorney client privilege. If a candidate running for any office said that during a campaign, no one (not far left, far right or middle) would vote for that person.

    Let me say something non partisan. Trump is being accused of soliciting the help of a foreign government in his reelection by "finding dirt" on Joe Biden. The constitution forbids the help from any foreign power. There are two possibilities. Trump is either guilty or innocent of this accusation. An inquiry needs to occur to ascertains the facts. If he is innocent he should stay as president, if he is guilty he should be removed from office.

The U.S. citizens have failed to respond with meaningful or effective effort. Therefore, our corrupt leadership is moving forward with wide open disregard for our democracy or constitution.
