days like today it is so transparently obvious the daily and more broadly NYTimes are liberal activist hack and not journalists. So far the evidence presented is not nearly sufficient to warrant impeachment but I say go for it Dems. THANK YOU for being tyrannical maniacs!

funny how republicans believe everything their president and government says when it is their guy(!) but when it's a democrat they accuse them of everything from taking away guns to deathpanels and the like.. And btw, if nothing is wrong, why the hell were they so intend on hiding the calls lol

I wonder how many other things have been swept aside? the president of the US does not have to hold a gun in someone's face for the "gun" to be implied when he "asks for a favor"..the full weight of the office is explicitly felt by the person(s) being asked for "favors"
