    For the past four years all they’ve done is investigate trump and his family, done nothing for the people, and even now the Ukrainian president cleared trump and they still want to go after him for it and keep repeating, just like the Russian thing that was concluded “no evidence”.

    It never ends

    There was 13 hours from the beginning of the attack at Benghazi to the end and the quick reaction troops were only 3 hours away, but were told to stand down by Obama & Hillary, because they didn’t want the gun running that was going on there to be found out.

    At a rally last week, Trump said Butt-Kissin' Biden was a good vice president only because he "understood how to kiss Barack Obama's ass."
