  1. The impeachment trial must be made public! tRump needs to stop blocking witnesses from coming forward! What is tRump hiding!

  2. I want to thank all the democrats for keeping Trump in office another 4 years! You have NO FACTS and cry like babies! You're all finished! Trump 2020! Nice try Soy boy!

  3. This is what has happened to America. These people have killed America. How can someone that makes $100 thousand a year become multi millionaires in congress. They have been paid that’s how. Absolutely time for term limits. Half of these crooks have been there for 40 years. Out with the old in with the new.

  4. The Republicans will do what they have done since trump came to office. Condone and collude .i have no confidence in them to do the right thing by democracy

  5. A poor education is no excuse for poor judgment if you can't see the flaws in trump you must be blind as well or corrupt.

  6. Love the fact that Pelosi thought of not sending the article of impeachment to the Senate. Does how long can she do that?

  7. Trump is a genius. He used the press against themselves without the press knowing it. The more coverage the press gives Trump, the more coverage he gets, as the same happened in the coverage of the
    election as the they thought by putting Trump front and center, the media thought they could make a fool of him. Trump knows how to weaponize the press's tools. The anti Trump media and Hollywood brought out the best and they failed to convince the American people that Trump was a Russian asset working with Putin, and a danger to democracy.

  8. AS ALWAYS DEMOCRATS ZOMBIES, BIG WIN FOR TRUMP 2020. I JUST SAVE ALOT OF MONEY ON MY INSURANCE I SWITCHED TO REPUBLICANS.

  9. Thumbs up to every truthful comment about the asset in the white house.
    So YouTube's time capsules can show how people really felt.
    Fox news comment section betraying collective stupidity on whole new levels🎺💩🧠🖕👑🍑🎺💩🧠🍑.

  10. McConnell seems to not care about keeping factual evidence via the White House from being revealed In a LEGALISTIC manner during Senate impeachment hearings. THE PUBLIC NEEDS TO KNOW & McConnell‘s behavior only reinforces his own dangerous attempts to circumvent the presentation of witnesses who if testifying may either be trying to remain safe from further prosecution OR attempting to lie their way through the process of interrogation. Trump would trust that these guys choose the latter option since he has mastered this himself. Who knows which path these potential witnesses would choose. However the Supreme Court justice Roberts, presiding over the Senate Impeachment trial & not a previous Trump choice although a Republican, should use whatever influence he has to keep McConnell from preventing the appearance of witnesses who may provide necessary FACTUAL testimonies from appearing before the Senate trial, whenever it takes place. January 2020 should be when this occurs but the Democrats (& Roberts?) need to assure the American public that all necessary testimony from those in the Trump administration as well as former members (i.e., John Bolton) be allowed to say their piece. Once again, can Justice Roberts over rule McConnell & DEMAND that ALL witnesses pro & con can have their say in this Senate trial? Maybe he is the only one who can make this happen but if not, either by his own choice or the by the legal procedures of a Senate trial, then there seems to be little hope of a LEGITIMATE democratic outcome in these proceedings.

  11. Lets get real.  THe Senate is going to shut this down as fast as they possibly can they do NOT want ppl testifying.  The truth would be tough to defend against just like it was in the House.

  12. Remember, for a year, Moscow Mitch outright refused a Supreme Court nomination by Obama .. It's time for NANCY to hold up things for next year's election .. like the Senate Trial for, about, say a year. Like Moscow Mitch there's no sound reason she can't ..

  13. It is all about counting the number of thugs. The number in Congress is already known. Now we can start counting how many are present in the Senate.

  14. IMPEACHMENT HAS BACKFIRED ON THESE PATHETIC DEM'S AND THIS PRESIDENT WILL WIN IN 2020… WAIT AND SEE YOU BACKSTABBING LIBERAL CROOKS. Trump 2020

  15. The only reason y the Republicans are not sure because they are as crook as trump and they are afraid that trump will bring them down with him

  16. you should hear how trump's sycophants over at fox news are exalting and praising trump's crazy, rambling and inaccurate letter. someone at fox even compared it to the Gettysburg Address! the letter, by the way, is VERY unlikely to have been written by him in any real sense. its FAR too articulate to have been written by him. he contributed to it here and there and it undoubtedly represents trump's sentiments accurately. but like all trump's other self-proclaimed credits, 90-95% of it was accomplished by others and trump merely attached his name to it.

  17. Trump’s Impeachment should not be sent to the Senate until all the other matters have been resolved by the Courts.
    Most likely there will be more articles to Impeach Trump with, probably at least a dozen.

  18. If you were trained under the DeVos education system, I'm sorry but we are categorizing you as a second class citizen and a Republican. You have to have had a legitimate education in order to achieve the level of first class citizen and Democrat. Better luck next time.

  19. MOSCOW MITCH's BIG TRIAL PLAN = same "legal" strategy ALEXANDER ACOSTA used to PROTECT JEFFREY EPSTEIN??? and no one's connecting the RICO dots ?

  20. McConnell and his wife, Chao, have been taking in so much money in bribes and skimming from grant contracts that it's clear he intends to have his coffin lined with cash. He apparently believes that patriotism is a luxury of the young and poor. He no longer winces when he lies under oath or to his constituents. It seems like the cartoon characters that we grew up with were more reliable and honest than the current crop of Republicans. What a waste. All the true conservatives have fled to the Democrats long ago. Trump is just using the debris that's left.

  21. no emmallumentz chargez big mistake=free crime and looz leverage on trump fam+ moor ammo against folxz who tred water inna bucket uv liez?

  22. All Republicans who have already demonstrated they will not uphold their oath to be impartial should be recused from the Senate trial.

  23. Don’t give them the impeachment papers Nancy pelosi. So he can stay impeached forever since they don’t want to have a fair trial.

  24. Moscow Mitch Mcconnell and Lenningrad Lindsey Graham are trying to rig the Senate trial to conceal the damming evidence against this treasonous traitor of a so called president. Moscow Mitch and Lindsey Graham are traitors and are on Putins payroll to destroy our Democracy and Country.

  25. Lmao. the dems just handed trump 2020. The impeachment will die in the senate this is Yet again Another failed political strategy by the establishment democrats. #voteforbernie he actually cares about the republic unlike these limousine liberals.

  26. I couldn't be more proud of Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler. Trump's inability to tell the truth has caused these actions. The President must be held at the highest standard. When he is not held to the standard that we all know, it cheapens the highest position of this country.

  27. Trump has been impeached by the house, nothing new they have been trying to do that since he has been elected. Senate will not let this fly. Democrats would of had a better chance had they been fair. Im not a Trump supporter, but not that hard to see the Democrats hate Trump more than they love America. https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/Letter-from-President-Trump-final.pdf

  28. Please! Look at the big picture here! Can't you see that it is Trump who is single handedly attempting to bring in "The New World Order"? Setting himself up as the Autocratic Leader of the US, above any law and the Congressional oversight of his Presidential Office? He viciously attacks every one he sees as disagreeing or competing with him, He uses lies and vulgarities for vengeance. Are you afraid to separate your thoughts from his? Are you giving him power over you?

    He has weakened our unity as a United Powerful Nation. Americans are NOT divided into a WARRING PEOPLE by differing political parties, as he is claiming. But by only one man, pushing the false statement, that you must be with him to fight against any who question his absolute authority. Stirring up hate and distrust between us. We DON'T HATE EACH OTHER BECAUSE HE SAYS TO, DO WE? Do you carry hate because he will turn on you and hate you if you disagree with him?

    He has turned his back on our Democratic Allies overseas and is aligning himself with the Dictators of the world. He has taking the role as an Autocrat in our Democracy, on his way to reaching his goal, of Ultimate Control! You are bowing before a despot. He rules you with his lies, false pride, reversal of accusations, deception, fear and anger. We've been warned about his coming in the Constitution and in the Holy Books of many religions. He is a "false god" and he knows it. But can we see it?

    Individuals who blending into one voice, using his words, supporting his intimidation of others, repeating his message of hateful, paranoid and divisive rhetoric. With no clear and thoughtful evaluation of the situation on their own considered, but fixated on his view. These are his minions. They are blindly and without question following him. Simply hearing his words, that he is being "prosecuted," because his false sense of entitlement, claiming he can follow his agendas and act out in any way he chooses, without limitations.

    The "Democrats" and many others are just the people calling out for the truth they see! Asking you to trust your own eyes! Listen to your own ethics and honor. Your own conscience! Keeping your "Free Will" and our "Free Country" intact, is what is at stake. Are the false vengeful words of one, more important or more true, than the validated view of so many people who are fighting for your Country and your "Rights"?

    His fight is in the political and criminal systems now. It is our just and legal process in dealing with his corruption. But the decision to take up his agenda personally, is in your heart. I would urge you to review your values and beliefs. Read the prophecies if you are inclined to understand "good vs evil" Decide which side you will stand with.

    This is not a call for Religion bias! This is a call NOT TO WAR! Trump is the true a warmonger among us. We can not allow him to continue to demand allegiance to HIM as he incites us to hate and fight among ourselves. We need to encourage unity and remove this instigator. Let him fall on his own sword of intimidation that feeds only his self interests. We need peace among our people to regain our integrity as "One Nation."

  29. Get ready for 5 more years of bearing the “leadership” of a sick dude that is becoming more and more unhinged and senile, slowly but surely ….. and it will only get worse. You should have voted for someone else in 2016 … anyone else would have been better than this …

  30. The letter gives a good reason for suing that school so they can never show his grades. Dude is super stupid. No way he could have graduated from any college in this country. Maybe Trump University.

  31. Drive the Dotard insane by holding onto the Impeachment Articles is a great move Nancy ?  Let the American people see the TRUE SCUM of how CHUMP really  is by having the SENATE of REPUBLI–KKK___ANS air it live for all of America to see is the right thing to do ! I have my popcorn ready to gain some weight for the winter !

  32. $100 says Trump will whine that the Senate trial is "unfair" if it does end up being agreed that witnesses can be called by the House managers. $200 says McConnell and Graham will repeat what Trump says.

  33. Senate Leader Mitch McConnell will do what He wants. Just like Shifr
    Naddler and Nancy did in the House. Dont you think it is a little late
    to be crying FOUL after they first time in America an Impeachment vote
    was ONE PARTY ? Hold it back send it it doesn't matter this is over and
    dead as the Weissmann Report (Or as it is falsely titled the Muiller
    Report ) Whats next Armed aggression by your Storm-troopers ANTIFA? Face
    it you lost in 2016 since then you have done nothing but made the
    Presidents approval go UP and you are in the Process of truly destroying
    the DNC. I do not agree with anything much the DNC ever did in my 64
    years but I do feel that We need a 2 party system. What you have done
    to the Party of JFK is sad. The DNC is now seen as the
    Socialist/Communist Party by a majority of Independent Voters those of
    us that swing the election. This whole Impeachment nonsense has moved a
    great many of us into the Trump RNC camp well done

  35. The whole R.I.P.ublican Party is run by unethical immoral corrupt individuals. They don't care about rules, they just want to defend the criminal orange clown no matter what.

  36. DEMOCRATS GET NO SAY NOW…… YOU HAD YOUR SHAM IMPEACHMENT….NOW LET THE MEN TAKE THIS OVER THE FINISH LINE AND DISMISS IT!……….REMEMBER MUELLER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. Rump's refusal to "cooperate" with the impeachment process, is a failure to uphold the Constitution as mandated in his oath of office.

  38. Nancy should hold on sending the articles over forever!!! The senate can't defend Trump!!! Done….over…he's impeached!!!🇺🇸😂😌
    Let the senate and Trump sweat it out!!!🇺🇸😀

  39. She is surely gonna tell her viewers that McConnell wants the exact same process as Clinton got. It is Schumer and the dems who look like absolute fools right now, who want to change the process. There are no specific charges. What would he respond to? Feels like November 2016 all over again. Lol

  40. If anybody thinks this whole thing, but esp today and beyond, has looked terrible in anybody but the Democrats, you are fooling yourself and some may even know it. They look like a pod of dumbasses. Lol

  41. The House of Representatives should NOT send the articles of impeachment to the Senate. Instead continue to make the case to the public and let the VOTERS of 2020 be the JURY !

  42. I wonder did he send his Boss(Vladimir Putin)a copy of his temper tantrum,,nope i don't think so because Vlad would have told to stop Being a Wuss?

  43. Nice talk about Clinton, but why not do say democrats did not mind perjuries and sexual abuse? Rachel Maddow does not mind sexual abuse at all?

    What a low moral in USA, unbelievable. You are all Trumpies.

  44. For those who are angry, heartbroken or in disbelief of the impeachment vote, it somehow feels appropriate to send you my "thoughts & prayers"…

  45. U snowflakes are crazy if u think the Republicans are going to let u run any part of the Senate trial. Democrats just had their chance to do this the fair way and changed the rules of the process to make the hole thing a sham. Now that the Republicans are in control of the process u want to go back to the old way it was done . Trump is going to be your president tell 2024 and if u guys don't stop with this kind of crap in 2024 u will have another Republican president. And yes this is coming from someone who voted for Obama

  46. The GOP aren't paying attention to what they are saying. They claimed the House "trial" which wasn't a trial deprived Trump of the ability to meet his accusers. That's what the Senate trial. So what is unfair in the House has become fair in the Senate

  47. Well they had the basement preparations and information gathering for the impeachment hearings…closed off from the public….where is the whistleblower? no one has seen or heard his/her testimony…..so now they want to be up front and call witnesses…or no impeachment articles will be sent to the senate…..No!!!! the articles will be sent to the senate on the republicans terms just like the democrats performed this impeachment process on their terms…there was no bipartisan collaboration on the impeachment process…it was all democrat participation to go through with the impeachment hearings…OH NO!!! a couple of democrats voted NO!!!!!!! Not one!!! republican voted yes….but the process went on…now they will allow the republican senate to vote up or down for impeaching Trump!!!!!

  48. How can this Republicans defend this guy the evidence is clear he is and inmoral president the most corrupt president ever we. Need to get all of Republicans out of the Senate and house especially Moscow mitch and Lindsey Graham rep. Meadow Jordan this people make me sick

  49. Not one positive word or comment over 3 years of Trump administration from the media,,,?
    Someone will have to explains to me what is wrong with this guy,,, ?
    Or could it be a collusion orchestrated by an antiTrump mouvement. ?

  50. “LA COSA NOSTRA JEWLS” Rudy 😂😂😂😂WILL REPRESENT TRUMP IN COURT🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮

  51. How does McConnell think he will get re-elected when he lets bills pile up on his desk and collect dust?! He is actually proud of that? Grim Reaper…what an arrogant fool.

  52. Thank for correcting me about Senators and Congressmen. Im not very politically educated and I welcome someone teaching me correct knowledge about my government.

  53. The way the Republican party is refusing to participate in this necessary legal procedure, it looks like hard evidence would be necessary, not that it would do any good. Evidently the Republicans choose to be blind and in denial. I mean, God could witness to Trump's law-breaking immorialities and the Republicans would say God was lying. This is simple madness.

  54. We know that Trump did not, could not, write that letter. So if it is a thrashy, unhinged letter then we can only conclude that even Trump’s staffs are pretty low-grade performers. Maybe that were also told to work with Giuliani on that letter. That would make sense of why that letter was full of meandering nonsense.

  55. What evidence
    My cousins uncles girlfriends best friends neighbor over heard the Ukraine call and that’s just how I feel about it emotionally and that’s my presumption on the whole thing
    Rachel, you mean that kind of evidence

    A majority of registered voters believe that President Trump will win the 2020 presidential election, according to a Morning Consult/Politico poll released on Wednesday.

    The survey shows that 56 percent of voters believe the president will be reelected. Eighty-five percent of Republicans and 51 percent of independents were confident in Trump’s reelection effort, compared to 35 percent of Democrats.

  56. I agree with Trump –only not so far in the future. May we all review this and not repeat his crimes and corruption against our nation

  57. They said they wanted a fair trial and due process but when they get the opportunity they run away. Also the Pres. was invited to participate in the house proceedings. He refused. His own aides refused to testify under oath to defend him. What does that tell you?

  58. Anyone who thinks trump has zero chance of winning reelection hasn't been paying attention. At all. Both Russian and Israel have real vested interests in keeping him in office.
