    Colin Powell would do best just to remain quiet. This is the same man who went to the UN and lied, lied & continued to lie about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. He maintained the LIE until he was exposed. Then with the US Invasion of Iraq he became a War Criminal.

    This is what you get when you do nothing while a narcissistic phycho is given a free hand to run a country. Everyone is standing up a saying its a disgrace now! ... oh how brave you have all become now your jobs are safe.. but worse than that is this is a symptom of problems far larger than Trump and it has been building up for years and years My Grandfather used to say " there are none so blind as those who will not see and none so deaf as those that will not listen" there are significant numbers of Americans who will not listen to reason or see an issue from another point of view. Its going to take a lot longer than four years to recover from the damage YOU ALL have let him do to your country but he could not have done what he has done with out your support! You all allowed things to get this bad... you got off lightly this time! All of you need to stop and think about what you want the future of the USA to be and all pull together towards that... right now your country is broken. Stop crying and fix it!

He changed such a lot of things within 4 years and was not finished yet. The "normal" ruling class was sidelined and has used corruption and fraud to win these elections again. All the good things that had been changed by Donald Trump are nullified and the Americans sleep on!

    Colin Powell misled the world and got the US stuck in a quagmire in Iraq. The rise of Trump is in no small part due to the money, lives and reputation squandered in the US forever wars. Totally agree that Trump's a national disgrace, but so is Colin Powell.

    Gen. Powell, it was a national disgrace when you went to UN to make a false claim against Iraq having WMDs that led to a bloodshed which continues to this day affecting destroying millions of lives. I don't shed any tears in 5 people dying because of the complicit security of Capitol hill. That same security failure happened on 9/11 when NORAD failed to intercept the highjacked planes. It also happened at Oklahoma bombing at Pearl Habour. Somehow the security fails to defend every time on US soil but is ready to destroy smaller nations overseas to "defend Americans". Your defense budget is not to defend US citizens but to destroy lives overseas.

    Sorry Powell; we won't get through it if there is no accountability for those responsible, even at the very top. And it sure looks like the complicit Republicans are once again betraying the Constitution and their Oaths of Office, in order to put party over country. They aren't going to Impeach Trump or prevent him from holding office in the future, at least with ten days left it doesn't look like they are going to. And thus far Pence hasn't invoked the 25th Amendment. He and Trump might work out a deal to pardon each other though, if they can trust each other to follow through, or if they have enough dirt on each other to make them cooperate, which is very likely.

It reminds him of a riot in 1992 but not of the war? Did he say that they lied and lied and lied before the war? This disgrace at Capitol is a result of constant lies by Trump and the War too had similar roots. Such men have no integrity of character or morality. They have no credibility. Pls stop inviting and honouring such people who themselves are disgraceful.
