  1. Susan Collins is a far shakier R. Not only is she facing a serious opponent in 2020's general election, but there is a growing movement to draft someone else to oppose her for the R ticket. Levasseur dropped out because all the leaders of the "party machine" pressured him (and Levasseur is still a party loyalist). But the gulf between voters and the "party machine" is wider than I can ever recall, and there is a LARGE segment of Maine Republicans who are inclined to support impeachment, and at least censure (not to mention all Independents, who are the main reason Collins gets elected in the first place). I cannot see her getting re-elected UNLESS she votes to impeach. And Im pretty sure she realises that.

  2. If Republicans had any guts, they'd remove Trump, and try and keep some of the integrity of the Lincoln, Reagan GOP.
    They won't, because this class of elected Republicans are absolutely and supremely gutless, spineless jellyback, oath breaking Constitutional ignorists.

    Traitors to their oath to protect The Constitution..
    Traitors to The Republic.
    Traitors to We, The People.

    REPUBLICAN = TRAiTOR

  3. From the Obama Administration Budget: The lawmakers proposed keeping aid to Egypt and Israel intact. However, the continuing resolution would cut off foreign aid to the Lebanese armed forces unless Secretary of State Hillary Clinton certifies such funding is in the United States’ national security interest.

  4. A vote of this magnitude should not be considered along party lines.
    The House raised some concerns, the Senate should have or obtain, all the evidence and only the facts should matter in the decision each Senator takes. Anything else is a dereliction of their oath and an indication those Senators will put their Party or Themselves above the interests of the People – The People and the Nation should be their only concern.

  5. icannot belive there are no republicans senator who are good people….. with morals sense of justice , country over party , denfending the constitution
    .. etc… like wtf at least 20 of them should be removing trump they cant be all ego driven criminals…

  6. Why is the reporter ridiculously jumping in front of the tv screen? And why are his sleeves rolled up, did he just bake a cake?

  7. It is sad enough, that all what counts for this republicans senators is, how their decision on impeachment will influence their chances on next elections…. The only what should count if the behaviour for the president is unadequate/impeachable. But that seems to be anyway for all of the republicans olfficials. "Very sad"…. as Trump himself use to say!!!!

  8. No matter the vote the goo must be voted out period they are just as guilty so why keep em no matter what. Blue wave all the way!! DunpDonkeyAssthe putnikboytoyandthr grime

  9. What is for sure: whether Trump is impeached or not in the Senate is irrelevant. It's about public opinion and Trump has long been impeached. This is only a test for Republicans. If they side with Trump; they will pay the price by loosing in theirs reelection. Its about public opinion and reelection. And on those the Republican part is in grave danger, let alone Trump.

  10. When Johnson and Clinton were impeached they weren't removed. I don't think Trump will be removed, but he is dangerous. I would have started Impeachment when he separated children from their mothers and never planned on reuniting them. There are over 69,000 orphaned children at the border and spread throughout the country in for Profit Prisons. They've been drugged, beaten, and sexually assaulted. MSM hasn't been talking about these Crimes against Humanity and children are dying. All of these Corporate Dems/Republicans are the same coin different sides. Profiting off of the Geo Group and Core Civic who are in the pockets of corrupt politicians. The politicians are profiting off of these children's misery. We have over 2 million US citizens in for Profit Prisons. It's a business and it's despicable. This effects brown/black people the most. They're all going to fill their coffers while telling you that your right to healthcare and education is just too much $$$$ eff them it's time to eat the rich. Bernie 2020, read his policies and demand change and take what we deserve. This isn't a R or D thing this is the Oligarchy (the wealthy) vs Democracy (the people). I will never understand why people vote against their best interests.

  11. Before I begin to write this, I want to state that I wholeheartedly believe that President Trump acted with complete disregard for the Constitution as well as his oath of office based on the testimonies of the political and diplomatic officials during the inquiry.

    But in regards to this particular video, the narrative shouldn't be figuring out how the Democrats can sway 4 Republicans. It wasn't just 51 senators who swore to uphold our constitution, all 100 took that oath. And I don't care what party they are, if any one of them have the slightest sense of integrity, they owe us as Americans the OPPORTUNITY to at least call Guliani, Bolton, Mulvaney and anyone else who might be able to either prove the allegations, or offer information which exonerates the President. And while a simple majority will be enough to set the rules, as far as I believe, when it comes to getting all the facts, every single senator should vote for the same. For them to at least say that they have even a little morality in them, then the tally should be 100-0 in favor of calling witnesses

  12. The Vice President will not decide any ties or be involved with the impeachment vote because that would mean he would have an unelected say in him becoming President.

    This is spelled out in the law, codified in 1986. If you're being paid half a million dollars to present this stuff on MSNBC you could at least do your research, dude, come on.

  13. I'm so sick of this government bunch of do nothings, that I want them all literally dead. All the way up to Trump, himself. I want blood on the floor! Then throw their bodies to the sea. Bunch of cowards and anti Americans.

  14. I am a Republican. And I will not vote for any Republican that votes NOT to impeach Trump. Donald Trump is a cancer to the United States along with the top 3% richest people. Until the United States eradicates this type of cancer, America is going to be sick for a long time.

  15. the Democrats have to get 7 to defect from republicans because the Democrats have already had3 defect worried about their personal skin in 2020 FACT

  16. PUT-TING ON GOP BLINDERS SHOULD BE AGAINST THE U.S.A. LAW & NOT PERMITTED IN THE COURT OF LAW. ALL DO RESPECT TO STEVIE WONDER OR RAY CHARLES & THE BLIND COMMUNITY JUST BY HEARING ABOUT TRUMPS BAD BEHAVIOR & CRIMES & IF OUR USA GOV. REP. CONVICTED DONALD= IS ENOUGH. SO TAKE OFF UR REPUBLICAN BLINDERS OFF. SEE IT, HEAR IT, BELIEVE IT & RECEIVE IT DEEP IN YOUR STATE OF MIND & OFF UR DEEP POCKETS.

  17. And here we are: the only consideration for any of these people is how their vote to acquit or convict will affect their re-election chances.

  18. A time – line of events of what was reported in the hearing to the House of representatives that lead them to impeach the President of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
    even the professors testimony needs to be played out against the facts of the case.

    We must remember that the opposition to the truth is lying to the people so " Spell out the truth " to the people in the simplest way ( A Time -line step by step in the cover up ) pointing out to the base the wrong doing of asking for campaign help for the second time…

  19. Mcsally bathes in the kool-aid and will be out in 2020. Az didn't want her to begin with. Don't count on her to vote for a real Senate proceeding on impeachment.

  20. Donald Trump was trying to give out subpoenas to have witnessed to Testify democrats told Republicans no then democrats went into some private basement like Russian Costopoulos to have private witnesses and testify after they denied President Trump the same thing now all of a sudden democrats want witnesses and evidence

  21. For the first time in their miserable lives, they are not getting their way . Good. They need to be cut off at their knees

  22. Because they get to keep their job and get so much money for their campaign if they let Trump ask for announcements of investigations from other governments, they'll acquit while knowing he's guilty. So it's not really a trial.

  23. Honestly he should be impeached. The Republicans are only defending him because they wanna save their reputation as a party altbough they know that he did a huge mistake. Coz it's actually a shame for the whole party to have their presidential candidate impeached to be only the 3rd president in US history to be impeached

  24. This is why Pelosi will be turning over the articles of impeachment to the Senate, after our two private business political party delegates decide who they want to be president. It all depends upon who they believe will give businesses the most tax breaks and freedom and liberty to ignore any regulations that affect their profits.

  25. Constitutional travesty
    Con – sta – two – tion – al tra – ve – sty
    noun – when "constitutional crisis" has been parroted by every liberal media hysteric and not even their brain dead viewers are effected by it.

    This has been, without a doubt, hands down, unarguably, the shortest, most partisan impeachment with the weakest evidentiary record in American history. You can impeach without a crime and without bipartisan support, it's not unlawful, just stupid and short sighted.

  26. NEVER trust a Republican ! They have to PROVE their fealty to country and the law,  and not merely spout platitudes .

  27. I believe the house vote proved where everyone stands. It told us what we needed to know and expecting different is foolish. We have to vote them out and let the FBI finish investigations. It's obvious that Republicans have accepted Russian bribes.

  28. Impeachment is NOT going to the Senate. Pelosi's game is to hold it over Trump's head for the duration of the election as a smear campaign

  29. So much for the 'oath of office'. Means nothing. Hasn't for a long long time. Not what I was taught in school. Additionally, I was taught that a fat man in a red suit came around once a year, slid down chimneys and left presents under a tree, the Tooth Fairy left you money for lost teeth, the Easter Bunny pooped out colored chicken eggs once a year. I'm 76 and every once in a while I have to cry myself to sleep thinking of all of this.

  30. Very interesting, it's as though you think the decision these people will reach during the impeachment has nothing to do with the evidence they will be presented with, and will be based entirely on how they perceive their chances of being re-elected. If that is the case, why not prosecute them now for breaching their oaths and remove them from their posts before they can do any harm? Is there no justice system or is compliance with the law a matter of minor concern for US politicians?

  31. I love how we're just openly talking about these elected officials just throwing their Oath of Office into the gutter for personal gain…hmm…seems like it's easier to just replace them when it's time! #Remove Traitor-Trump! #voteBlue2020!!

  32. When the Russians hacked the DNC server back in 2016, they also hacked the Republican server & found emails, call logs, and phone records containing GOP corruption! THIS is why GOP is now jumping on their Political Swords in defence of Trump..because if the Truth gets out, it’s going to be far worse for them than their own Political Deaths, and they know it!

  33. I honestly don't think any of them will break with Trump and vote with the Dems. Doug Jones and the other Dems that doesn't think Trump deserved impeachment will pay.

  34. Everyone with half a brain knows the outcome ahead of time. Trump will be fully acquitted and win re-election easily.
    Dems have once again wasted four years of America's time.

  35. Come on Republicans, stand up, show the other Republicans how great a true Republican can be. Do your job, impeach Trump.

  36. This impeachment is the opportunity that Republicans with integrity have been waiting for to flush trump. Once he is impeached and removed from office , there is then no worries of his idiotic tweets.

  37. This is too much it's about the country NOT a party our DEMOCRACY is at stake!
    DOING THE RIGHT THING MATTERS FOLKS IT DOESN'T MATTER IF THE PRESIDENT IS A REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT IF HE ENDANGERED OUR NATION, ABUSED THE POWER OF
    THE OFFICE AND TRIED TO CHEAT TO GET REELECTED THERE MUST BE CONSEQUENCES! "NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW"!!!!!!!!

  38. Lisa Murkowski & Susan Collins were sent out during the Brett "I Like Beer" Kavascum Hearings to make it 'seem' like the Ru-publicans were caring about the process and would do right by the Hearings. But no they did not. I will NEVER, EVER FORGET Collins' slimy, smirking smile as she announced afterward she confirmed him with her head held high in a look that said, "F you people, we'll do whatever we want." And they did. They are Disgraceful. They are NOT to be counted on for anything other than supporting the corruption in the Senate and the Traitor Trump the worst president in the history of the country.

  39. How I wish the President would completely shut down 'Fake news" as punishment for all their crap, including and MSNBC

  40. Those purple state senators are kinda screwed either way it swings so they might as well save their reputations as a last stand.
