      Yeah, why the fuck do they need to bring a whistleblower in for a hearing? It's just like w/ Robert Mueller, the guy has already spelled it out for them, it's already god damn clear, they can't spell it out any more. Fucking do your job congress.

          I'd like to see a "Who Blew? (the whistle)" like the "who shot JR?". Could it be the VP who want's to President? Could it be Melania, getting revenge for Donald cheating? Could it be Kelly Ann Conway, looking for a way to get out her job? ...who could it be and WHY? ...all this and more on the next episode.

              The whistle blower DOES NOT EXIST! The demonrats have lied about everything. The whole collusion was a lie. There whole narrative on the phone call is a lie. Fox's stupid pole is a lie. It is foolish to trust them now. They won't show the "whistle blower" because they invented him. This is all a a Big, Fat, Rotten, Evil, Lie!

                The world is now asking themselves whether or not the U.S. should be regarded a rogue state. Congrats, you went from leader of the free world to the rogue state with the biggest army.

                          Can the "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" tune please be tuned down in volume? It is so loud compared to the actual show. Like this comment if you agree!

                              is it just me, or did he sound like Brett Kavanaugh? (minus the yelling, the sobbing, the constant talking about beer, the general dickishness, etc.)

                                  Why mask the whistleblower? They could just put white hoods on all the Republicans, they're usually fine with that sort of attire.

                                                  Why is the whistleblower even called to a hearing? He did his job. He pointed at something that's wrong and that's what the commitee needs to investigate. Who he is or what he actually knows is of no importance.

                                                    It's really just to keep the issue on people's minds because Americans have short attention span on important issues. Investigations and impeachment inquiries are behind the scene stuff that rarely gets reported, and if you take long enough people end up forgetting or stop caring about it.

                                                    Usually this type of hearing is a lot like attention boosters and doesn't serve any real purpose other than to generate political will for the public to do something. Yeah, it's not necessary for the whistleblower to attend a hearing, I mean the leaked transcript was already there in plain sight, and both Trump and Giuliani keep incriminating themselves in public. If that isn't enough, I wouldn't know what is.

It's being done that way so that they can leak out just the stuff they want. Impeachment is also meant to be done in the Judiciary Committee not the Intel Committee. Furthermore, the Dems are just making up the rules as they go along, and not agreeing to a set of rules that give both sides the right to subpoena and question witnesses. Another irregularity is that Adam Schiff is a fact witness and should therefore not be chairing the committee. It's a complete unconstitutional sham and there's no reason to cooperate with it. And have you heard the latest? Schiff now doesn't want the leaker to testify. Probably because there is no whistleblower.

                                                                                          "No administration aside from trump’s is stupid enough to even do this shit to begin with." - You're right, previously both sides of the uniparty agreed to allow the corruption go uninvestigated. That's why all these public servants managed to become multi-millionaires from all the shady deals. And the fact that Trump came along to upset their little apple-cart is the reason that he's facing such unprecedented opposition.

It's a fishing expedition just like the Mueller investigation. Even the Ukranian President said there was no quid pro quo and Ukraine wasn't even aware the money had been delayed. Furthermore, the money was paid to Ukraine shortly after the phone call, despite the fact they hadn't provided any service for it. Therefore, no quid pro quo. A different matter though with Hunter and Joe Biden. One rule for Republicans, another for Democrats.
