    This should be a huge warning to Republicans and Conservatives, he's telling you now that maybe it's time to get your life jackets and claim a lifeboat before its too late.

    Possible repost of the transcript. Confirms the recent tweets posted (favor... Trash talking the EU... Staying at Trump hotel+endless flattery).

    No mention of lifting the aid package, but confirms they both know of the 'situation' with Giulianni and Barr, as if not knowing that precondition was a nonstarter.

    Uh yeah... Need moar facts and the whistleblowers' testimony. Amirite??

    If this is the best weather map the WH came up with, how horrible is the real transcript ... without the "..." and without a black marker ?

    I suspect **** taking about Ukraine's hookers being way better than Putin's harem.

    Call it the "Access Kiev" recordings.

    What's hilarious is that Trump readily and proudly admits that most of Fox News is in his bag. He call it's "our Network".

    I don't think these people are idiots. They just are bad faith grifters.

    I thought it was scary, the extent of that one white dude’s anger. He really did lose his composure.

    Yeah, both of the guys went totally unhinged. Sadly Williams read the room and stopped pushing. I wished he would have kept pushing. Whether they got what they are saying directly from the White House or not, they were repeating the talking points so they might as well have. Williams should have made that point. Those guys lost it. I thought it was hilarious because they were acting as if they had credibility or a good reputation that was in danger of being damaged by what Williams was pointing out. They have zero credibility and its been a long time since either of them had any amount of good reputation left to be hurt.

    Release all the conversations to foreign leaders to investigators of all past Presidents. We have to have full transparency.

    How about we do it for all past presidents where whistleblowers have come out and given us a heads up. I have no problem with that except they can't be impeached at this point.

    Why should it be limited to biased whistleblowers? We have to do this for the good of the country to get past this. We have to have comparisons of former Presidents to really see what would be considered appropriate and inappropriate.

    It really is irrelevant if the whistleblower is biased or not, the facts matter, that's it.

    Do you think that Ken Starr was unbiased against Bill Clinton?

    It's also just more "WHATABOUT" instead of confronting the truth that Trump has broken the law.

    There is something called probable cause that's been set as a standard for law enforcement. I was using that as kind of a guideline. However, we could certainly look at all of them if you wish.

    If we did look at all of them guess who would still be the one guilty of a crime?
