  1. Shep: Trump wants to investigate his political opponents "says it like trumps putin"
    Oh you mean like how Obama investigated Trump? Hillary investigated trump for 2 years?? The dems did the same thing, Trump is being open and honest about it and not doing it without mention like obama.

  2. This could be the straw that broke the camels back forTrump. Going behind the backs of Congress, using Congressionally approved tax-payers money to force the behavior of a foreign government for the benefit of domestic political gain is not acceptable. While Trump didn't mention the 250 million dollars approved by Congress, he knew they knew he was sitting on it. He didn't release the funds until after his conversation.

  3. Wait! That's it? This is the big scandal?
    Not Hillary bleaching and acid washing hard drives and taking hammers to lap tops? Not the Obama administration spying on the Trump campaign? This is all they got? Come on, it's not like Trump offered Russia 20% of our nation's bomb making Uranium in exchange for $300 million!

  4. That was the most intricately worded description of an obvious nothing burger I have ever heard. I salute your journalistic integrity, sir (I used to be a comedian).

  5. Subpoena the President before Congress. Make him tell the American people what's going on.

    If he is innocent he has nothing to worry about.

  6. Biden publicly admits to quid pro quo of a multi billion dollar deal where he extorted Ukraine to fire the prosecutor who was investigating his corrupt son and Trump is in trouble for wanting info about it? It’s just like the Russia hoax where the only ones colluding with Russia were the treasonous Dims. Biden certainly doesn’t need Trumps help destroying his own candidacy. He is no threat to Trump. This is about the rule of law.

  7. Lol.
    Journal:"Trump did not offer any quid pro quo"
    Biden's lawyer:"This is beneath us all as Americans." (Forgot about Christopher Steele. Biden was wingman on that fiasco)
    Shep -"The wsj company and the Fox news company share the same parent company…did you get that? You sure? "
    😅😅😅

  8. In almost every investigation it has always backfired and revealed the dems/libs were actually the ones doing exactly what they were accusing the rep's/trump of.
    This whole fake news story is just another deflect and feed disinformation scam. These people are certifiably crazy and should be put away in a padded room.

  9. The idea that Trump is a Russian spy
    Has always seemed sort of stoopid to me
    Russia's quite safe as the Spectre of evil
    WE are our worst enemy

  10. Jo China and son are in it only for themselves. What exactly is the problem in asking how a drug addict suddenly became a multimillionaire in foreign deals associated with daddy's work?

  11. Good, Trump is President and needs to find out what was going on between the Bidens and Ukraine … looks suspicious … plus all that money from China …

  12. Why would you say Trump "pressured" the Ukraine leader? Couldn't you say he simply asked them? Why are you trying to dramatize the situation without making more of what the subject was about, Biden misconduct?

  13. Should still investigate Biden's son. Of course the Ukraine government would say that there was no evidence – they are the one's who would have been the counter party to any bribes –da! Need a FBI investigation of this matter.

  14. Look at Shep. He's so excited when he thinks he has caught Trump with his pants down. I wonder why? Political bias or sexual preference???

  15. If I did not know he works for Fox, this Lie spreader is as bad as Fredo ,Maddow?!! Why would Fox allow this man to represent them makes me start to Seriously Wonder what color their Hat is? This Sheppard Smith is worse than CNN and CSNBC, so if Fox walks like a Duck and quakes like a Duck, Well??

  16. Reading the comments here. And looking into the developing story of Ukrain / Rump / Biden. For once the stupid Rumpers made me smile and laugh with comments like all Democrats are going to jail. Rumpers denied the Russia collusion, so it will take some time for this new development to sink into Rumpers minds. Stay tuned to the news (the real news, not the Rump mouthpiece) this is going to change things!!!

  17. Hunter Biden isn’t Trump’s “political opponent” but he may be an illegal beneficiary of Joe Biden’s political position. Why can’t that be investigated?

    As far as Ukraine goes, I thought Trump had been colluding with Russia. Now he’s tied to Ukraine, but isn’t that Russia’s opponent?

    I see one of two directions this could go. The media can either focus on Hunter Biden and keep the narrative of Joe Biden’s familial corruption in the headlines, or it can choose to highlight the inanity of Trump’s inexplicable collusion with two powers who are at odds with each other. Either way it makes no sense, and as a result Trump wins again.

    He keeps beatin’ the media like a rented mule. When are they gonna smarten up?

  18. This homo announces that Trump called someone on the phone. Trump seeks to know if crimes against US interests were committed by Biden, or his son. SO WHAT IF HE CALLED? Another NOTHINGBURGER, witch-hunt, fake scandal, ala KAVANAUGH and scads of other non-firestorms for Trump, ending up scandals for DEMS! Crazy.

  19. "Wow, how dare trump act like such a criminal! Disgusting! Trying to find out the truth about someone by asking people is shameful!" Trump should just start making up fake stories about his opponents and publish them in news, that way he wouldn't be doing something differently from them that they can hate him for.

  20. I mean it’s a double standard with Obama spying on trump and trump spying on Biden’s-son. I want trump to stay in but this is a double standard

  21. Here we go again🙄…Trump exchanging favours with a touch of blackmail for foreign assistance in aid of his re-election!
    🤷‍♂️Mind you, it worked the first time with little consequence so why not try it again, after all, he did say he would “probably” do it again on national TV. America – officially a Banana Republic where corruption is now the norm and the butt of a joke as the whole world watches you circling the drain.
    Idiots🙄🙄🙄

  22. SO WHAT?? THIS should have been investigated a LONG time ago…….oooh…that's right..OBUMMER was president then and his mindless sidekick was Biden

  23. Shepard Smith…. I’m very disappointed in you as a journalist now!! You used to tell the truth about stories…… what happened? I used to enjoy listening to you!!

  24. Notice the lack of reporting regarding the pressure Joe Biden as vice president put on Ukraine to not investigate his son notice the lack of reporting regarding the pressure Joe Biden as vice president put on Ukraine to not investigate his son.

  25. This is more proof of Trump's criminality! If Trump asked the Ukrainian President to help with his political campaign then for dam sure he asked Putin to do the same thing! Actually this is the way Trump ran his business in NYC. We the people are either a lawful society or we are not! Trump is NOT a lawful person. He is always hiding something or stonewalling this or that! Trump is not on the level and he is not on the square! By the way this Whistle-blower is an honest citizen doing their job. It is unethical for the POTUS to ask a foreign leader to get dirt on a political opponent.

  26. If Biden were innocent, I guess there’s nothing to worry about, is there? Biden’s the moron that publicly bragged about extortion regarding a foreign enterprise…instead of being outraged at President Trump for seeking justice,
    Adam $h!t4brains should be more concerned with the possible illegality of Biden while VP…this isn’t about Congressional oversight, it’s about weaponizing Congress against a President they hate & are trying to remove by any means necessary…

  27. I'm just here to see the cultists in the comments deny and defend, for orange man good. Predictably, I was not let down. It Truly doesn't matter what Trump does, and it's so obvious and well known. Even Donald Trump openly brags about it. He could start WW III and crown himself king and they would deny and defend like good little NPC robots while they enthusiastically participate in the destruction of America and the world. That's the nature of cults and the human ego, and the enabling force behind all wars.

  28. So what's wrong with that? Just like saying he hopes Russia has Hillary's deleted emails. opposition research Hillary calls it.

  29. It's about time the DEM criminals need to be investigated for their crimes of treason! Thank you Mr. President. Trump2020❤❤❤🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  30. PEOPLE IN THE US AND AROUND THE WORLD NEED TO REALIZE THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS NOT ONLY ABOVE THE LAW……………………HE IS THE LAW
    Greatest leader in the history of mankind.

  31. I am sure that President Trump repeatedly asked the Quando tribe in inner Mongolia to get dirt on Mayor Pete and Beto! That should be top of the news!

  32. You do have to ask who would be dumb enough to pay Hunter Biden $50,000/month to work in a Ukraine business he knew nothing about. Funny business ? You bet ! But wait, it gets better. John Kerry's son was similarly paid by the same business.

  33. So, MAGA, is it okay for any US president to try to bribe a foreign government into digging for dirt on their political opponents or is that only okay for Donald Trump to do?

  34. I guess Dimms, excuse me, Dems have no sense of Irony. It's beneath us? Really? So, if we look into democratic corruption we get shamed?

  35. Former Ukrainian MP Serhiy Leshchenko, who is characterized as "a pro-Western politician and corruption fighter" has been named by Rudy Giuliani as one of “the enemies of Donald Trump and the USA.”

    So in Trumpworld "pro-Western politician and corruption fighter" = "enemy of Donald Trump and the USA". Hmmmm.

  36. Hillary is running. Democrats got nobody to challenge Trump. She actually got more votes than Trump last election. No one can raise the money she can. She will be the nominee

  37. It's the most repugnantly amoral thing any president has ever done. This is clearly impeachable and it should be enough to put politicians in jail. I think they should make a law and it should even be for president s never go after your opponents family. It really is the most disgusting thing ever done in american politics. They really need to hose down the oval office when Trump gets out. Hopefully it will be in a straight jacket!

  38. Biden's SON is not a candidate. If there was wrong doing, then he should be investigated, particularly if BIDEN Sr used his then VP status as a quid pro quo during his administration.

  39. Well When Biden openly boasted that they bribed the Ukrainian government to drop a major investigation into his sons business, the US media totally covered it up (actually the NYTimes) carried a small story on it. But when "He who must be continuously Investigated" calls for an investigation into this ignored corruption which is at the genesis of the fake Russian collusion hoax, guess what the media wants??

  40. Am i wrong to the news said there was crooked stuff going on with his Biden's son i would like to know what Ukraine president knows on that subject. No crime here Trump 2020

  41. Zevenskt is too scared to probe Biden son and father because if Trump wouldn't be re-elected ( God forbid) than new USA dems President will may eliminate Zelensky .

  42. They've been pushing this s*** for 2 and 1/2 years has nothing to do with Biden being a political opponent he's a washed-up burned-out broken-down Old Joe

  43. Calling BS on this. Biden himself was videoed bragging how he strong armed that government into firing the first investigator in this matter.
    I think I downloaded it a while back.
    Total BS.
