  1. If you mix up polls with laws you get stuff like this. Dems try the same technique as they used against Kavanaugh. Once the process implodes, we'll have neon-haired wokes screaming and banging at the doors of the Senate. This is just so predictable, like a Netflix production.

  2. For those Republican Congressman so worried about losing their seats in the next election, I would say, "Yes stick to your guns". Stick to your guns, because you will definitely lose your seat if you continue to stick to the party line; and good riddance. America is watching now, and those that continue to betray their oath of office will be remembered. It is not the voting Republicans that you need to worry about, but the massive number of independent voters that vote their hearts, not their party-line. Those that are swing voters, who will cast votes to which ever side that best represents them. Those would be the same voters that gave back the House to the Democrats in 2016. Do you Republican fools truly believe that the last election was merely a blip in history? Because it was most definitely not, it was outrage over a leader who has clearly exploited his office, has betrayed his country and his countrymen, has broken law after law after law with impunity, has made a mockery of this nation, its melting pot of people, its history, traditions, faith and honor. It was outrage that lost you the majority, and it will continue to be as long as your Republican party continues to betray America. In the end you do not have the numbers in your favor, and you will lose.

  3. Trump will get impeached. The Senate will not vote to have him removed. Trump and his deplorable support base will see this as a victory, and will become completely unrestrained. Come 2020, if Trump wins, and he and his deplorables will coming after everyone who didn't vote for him, so Democrats can expect to be lynched. If Trump loses, he will refuse to accept the results, and America will be embroiled in an all out civil war. It looks like America's future looking very bright and rosy. Regardless of the outcome, come 2021, it's goodbye America. Sweet dreams America.

  4. When Fascism comes, it’ll come wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross”
    Republicans= Blind, Deaf & Dumber make for a perfectly gullible flock!
    🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑 baaa!

  5. Look how Trump has pulled us into his stinkin dysfunctional dramas. We all should be angry at him and not at each other.

  6. Will Herd is a Washington cockroach. He wants to lobby as soon as he leaves – mo’ money; he knew being a black Rep was worthless to the big money boys. And may have valiantly thrown his rattle out the pram when he quit but keeping his mouth shut now he’s picked up some … shall we say ‘pre-engagements’….

  7. It would help if help if Republicans had a shred of respect for the absolute supremacy of rule of law if we are to have any semblance of democracy. They've become too accustomed to impairing or ignoring our constitutional framework to understand that damage to it has significant consequences, even to the extent that, if we're not careful, we could destroy it. Perhaps, some Republicans are sensing that letting the madman Trump run amok at the highest levels of our government could end up being the real disaster the rest of us have feared all along and which appears to be unfolding right now.

  8. There's no question what Republicans will do, they'll cravenly do whatever they feel is necessary to ensure reelection.

  9. Level of clarity levels of truth flood the mindset of the government. Fact or fiction truth or lie. It black or white. Stop splitting hairs and admit the 100% fact or truth. Our government has the mind set of imaginary scenarios as if they are children on the playground.

  10. Republicans will stick there heads in the sand and hope no one noticed that they are still scared of Trump's evil eye !

  11. All the Republican senators operates on the premise that don't ask me no questions and I tell you no lies it works for Trump !

  12. Republicans must do their constitutional duty and that means if there is a crime, they must determine that Trump is responsible. If they do not, when having the facts in hand, then they are not doing they jobs. They would only be answering to 'the money'. That would be proof of true perversion and contrary to the constitution.

  13. It's blatantly obvious what kind of caracters are leading the Country. They're hiding behind fear. Wag a disgrace and for what? A WH Mafia Nazi who will go down, and they with him

  14. How do we change the information environment so that information is vetted before unscrupulous actors spew it out for the masses? Or how can we get the masses to screen information more effectively?

  15. 2:07 – wow. How dumb is he? He STILL doesn't get it. The 40% KNOW that Trump is a self-serving criminal. But since he committed the crime to prevent a DEM from winning, they are ok with the crime.

  16. Opinions are nothing more than personal bias…..Trump 2020 by a landslide when the real truth is exposed how corrupt the Dems were in 2016 election comes out….you won't be able to hide the facts and truth about Dems in the coming weeks…

  17. Just once I would love to have you talk about all the accomplishments of your President…that sure would be a change….and why we are loyal to Trump…..best President in history for the American people and you all know it…

  18. Good point: That Republicans are caught in a trap—-> If anyone of them acknowledge Trump's malfeasance and vote for impeachment, they will become the target of Trump's Twitter outrage. On the other hand, if anyone of them knows the facts as they are presented and any unavoidable conclusion of guilt, and vote against impeachment; then, they may well have the ire of voters in their district(s) who heard and supported the case for impeachment. Either missing-out on their own district reelections and/or the opportunity to get lobbyist gigs will surely challenge their ability to vote objectively: That is, of course, if the evidence for impeachment is irrefutable…

  19. It worries me that Moscow Mitch is blocking election interference bills… Russia among others will again be influencing our election.

  20. CNN, MSNBC, THE GUARDIAN AND THE MAINSTREAM NETWORKS INCLUDING THE DEMOCRAT POLITICIANS ARE ALL CORRUPTED. THEY ARE RUN BY FILTHY RICH AMERICANS LIKE SOROS. DONALD TRUMP, THE WARRIOR IS HERE TO CLEAN THE SWAMP FOR THE HARD WORKING AMERICANS.

  21. Evan Siegfried says that if you're a Republican today and you "cross Donald Trump," that's political suicide. That may be true as a general proposition, but it is doubtlessly untrue in some cases. Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah will retain most of his support here in Utah even though he does not hesitate to speak out against Donald Trump when he disagrees with what the president has to say.

  22. I seem to remember that everytime Obama sneezed that some Republican, mostly Palin were shouting impeach him. This is the go to with Republicans whenever there is a popular Democratic president, the people remember this and it will be them who lose because they were willing to impeach so readily for nothing and they do nothing with Don the con

  23. Donald Trump’s behavior has raised fundamental legal and constitutional questions: Did Trump as candidate criminally violate election laws? And once in office, has Trump as President failed to fulfill his oath to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution”? And if in fact, Trump has failed to take the lead in protecting our elections from foreign intrusion, is that an impeachable offense?

    👇👉👉👇

    These passages explain that, despite all the political rhetoric emanating from the White House, the Capitol building and elements of the media, if the House impeached and the Senate convicted Donald Trump, the only result of that Congressional action would be his removal from the Presidency.

    The President, Vice President and civil officers of the United States shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

    — Article II, section 4, U.S. Constitution

    “Judgment in cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office … but the party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to law.”

    — Article I, section 9, U.S. Constitution

    👉 There is no language in the Constitution providing the President with any immunity from prosecution by the appropriate criminal authorities: he is subject to the ordinary criminal processes of “Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to law.” Furthermore, there is not one syllable directly putting the President beyond the reach of the criminal law even if Congress does not impeach.

    The argument that the President is immune from the criminal laws is just that — an argument.

    Трамп и его деньги (Trump and his Money)

    As Trump lost access to traditional lines of credit, his desperate need for financing led to sources that are murky, at best, including monies traceable back to the former Soviet Union — a circumstance that may explain Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns.

    According to two pages of Trump’s 2005 tax returns, purportedly sent anonymously to reporter David Cay Johnston, Trump appeared to make an enormous amount of money that year — earning more than $153 million, which put him into a tiny class of super-rich Americans, probably numbering in the dozens.

    Trump’s windfall seems to have developed around the same time that investors from countries of the former Soviet Union started opening the cash spigot.

  24. In all honesty, I cannot realistically see Republican sentiment turning against the President to such a degree that at least 20 GOP Senators break with their party and vote to convict and remove Trump. The comments and actions of Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell show very clearly that the GOP Senators are of the mind to protect Trump.

  25. It took years before Dumb Americans could get Al Capone!! The Dumb Americans will do it again!!
    Dumb Americans could be Dumb but they don't like Mobster Criminals in their government. Maybe criminals but definitely not Mobsters!!
    " It is not Trump. A country that elects a Trump is already in serious trouble." E Warren

  26. The same people that send 300 subpoenas to the Obama administration because they wanted to find something to impeach Obama. Just because he was black and they did not like his policy are complaining now that the Democrats have impeachment hearings because off misconduct by Trump. They are like crying children and snowflakes

  27. What Twitter missed when they allowed Trump to continue to tweet because he is President—Even Though it Violated TOS—was that his bullying would fundamentally destroy the GOP.

  28. Does MSNBC really think all American Citizens are buying their Verbal Garbage? The attempts of impeachment of President Trump
    is the most negative ever by those who fear their illegal deeds and abuse of power will eventually incarcerate them. Good citizens of

    America beware, these fools are wolves in sheep's clothing and are willing to bite any hand that feeds them. Not even loyal to those

    who are paying their way today. Your pockets have been picked for over 20+yrs. It's about time we get the scales back in true balance.

    We are improving America under the Trump administration, one day at a time. The destroyers must go.

    Let those who are not guilty of any crime or lie or unkept promise to American Citizens, cast the first stone.

  29. Do the right thing because it's what you should do as a public official. Upholding the constitution is what congress members are elected to do, not keeping their seats.

  30. As tragic as all of this is, one thing I get great enjoyment out of is that the republicans have finally done themselves in. Every republican president for a while now has been handpicked and controlled by them. bush is a perfect example. They thought they could control trump, that he was their golden goose. But nope. He is taking them down. And that is the silver lining of this very, very dark cloud.

  31. Republics better think long and hard about what to do for the impeachment vote in the senate esp when the rvidence comes out to the public. If the vote no for impeachment, they are done when the next election in the senate comes around. If you vote yes Trump is out and at least they have a chance to keep your post and integrity. Trump will not keep you at your position in senate, we the people do!

  33. Senate Republicans are not going to vote to remove Trump, when have they ever done what's right? Right now Republican voters are standing behind Trump and it's unlikely that anything will surface to change that. The Senate is not going to go against their voters. However, Trump is going to be forever known as the third president of the US to be impeached and his incompetence and criminal actions will follow his family name forever.

  34. Fox news is a religion for its followers. Praise almighty FOX the true God of the right, hard right. False god! This is a cult like behavior .

  35. The Democrats are magnanimous in their dealings with Trump and his republican cronies. When the shoe is on the other foot it's a different story.

  36. Evil behavior is not a necessity in any society. Not matter how much some, could be millions, approved it and are ok with it. evil minds will never, ever, win. And that’s a fact.

  37. If Republicans don't vote to remove this inept man from office, they will lose their seats in 2020. It could precipitate the demise of the Republican Party.

  38. so what Americans are saying is "dictatorship is OK with me" "forget the phony Constitution" oh really? tell that to all those Patriots at Arlington

  39. Why are we all so gullible? DOJ announces they will move forward on how and who started the Russia hoax and NOW it's impeachment. It's just a distraction and people fall for it every single time.

  40. Nixon won 49 states in a landslide second presidential election. Trump doesn't have the mandate that Nixon had and yet, Nixon still resigned. When the public hearings begin and the trial in the Senate takes place with all the Constitutional weight that holds… we'll just have to wait and see, but I am not convinced the worm hasn't started turning already.

  41. The Republican strategist could share the most valuable info on this topic, but the Democrats won't let him talk much.

  42. For some reason, the behaviour of these Republican reprobates reminds me of watching a National Geographic special back when I was a teen. I was getting high with a few friends and this clip came on about lemmings, which go on wild stampedes that sometimes take them plunging headlong over a cliff. For some reason — perhaps the "expanded empathy" of my mental state — I began to imagine what it might be like to be in the middle of all that. I turned to my friends and said: "I wonder if any lemmings ever suddenly experience a surge of doubt about where theyre going, and why . . . Would they be able to fight their way out of that stampede before it took them over the cliff?"

    We all laughed ourselves horizontal.
    Anyway . . . . the point is . . .

    Do you ever wonder if there might be a few Republicans trapped in the middle of this mad stampede towards disaster, who have second thoughts about defending a guy who is clearly one of the most unprincipled, self-interested scam artists ever to hit American Reality reality? And if there ARE any Congresscritters out there who suddenly have a moment of moral clarity, would they be able to change direction or distance themselves far enough to avoid being carried over the cliff? . . . and isnt it too late for that, by now?

    Goodbye, Republican Party. That thunderous noise you hear is me dancing on your grave.
    Hopefully the people who come along in the next few years and try to rebuild some sort of a centre-right political structure on the ashes of this GOP(RIP) are wise enough to learn from the tragedy, and hereafter put principle and country before party. I know, I know . . . . at the moment it is hard to believe that anyone in the Republican party still possesses a moral compass, much less the sort of common sense needed to follow it. But I HAVE known people in the past whose ideas I deeply respected despite the fact that they were profoundly conservative – the likes of George Will, Charles Krauthammer, Bill Weld, and the like (perhaps even Mitt Romney, who for all his schmarmy capitalistic style is at least someone for whom moral principles matter).

    Whatever the case, I certainly wont miss any of THESE guys.

  43. Republicans will do what they always do…lie, cheat, whine, trash the country, and then blame the democrats for their failures.

  44. We need to make a list of whoever votes against conviction in the senate and vote them all out, if amazon running 40 states' electoral system leaves us able to vote at all.

  45. Why not just be honest about it? Democrats portray themselves as a global socialist party that is exempt from accountability anywhere on earth. Republicans are a weak party that happened to choose the right side of the slavery question, the only reason why they still exist.

  46. What if votes citizens with post- graduate degrees count 3x, votes of those with a bachelor's degree count 2x, and the votes of all others count once? I think it would enhance our democracy.

  47. They will do anything to desperately cling to power—that which was granted only by the dysfunctional electoral college and meticulous racial gerrymandering. They don't deserve to wield it so they will always feel it slipping away.

  48. Twitter is the curse of American politics, by a president abusing his power! Twitter is allowing its platform to be used for personnel attacks on people and party’s. This surly is in clear breech of protocols that Twitter has?

  49. american children will begin disappearing as republicans turn to human sacrifice to gain Satanic powers to fight off the holy rightousness of the democrats impeachment of trump

  50. Repeats? He did! his whole team. They blackmailed the Ukrainian president leaving office.
    Then itt worked so well they geared up to shakedown Zelenksi. And they did.. 😁

  51. Impeachment is now just a fading smoke bomb that isn't going anywhere. Democrats are chasing their own tails while Trump has moved on racking up more wins.

  52. What the republicans will do as impeachment approaches? They will do what politicians on both sides always do,try to save their sorry derrières period.

  53. American is now a 3rd world banana republic. Trump and repubs hv made u guys such. And yet his base is also still supporting him.

  54. 'i can see republicans getting ready to impeach the next democratic president the very next day' – let's not forget that trump threatened to imprison his political rival – live – on national television, while they were both still candidates.

  55. I wish we could have a secret vote and see how many republicans want president Trump gone. The are all sell out they are not for the people they are about the MONEY $$$$$$

  56. ill tell you what republicans need to do… we need to just carry around the actual transcript around and hand it to people who have been brainwashed… i mean come on guys its 4 pages long… just read the stinking thing there isnt anything there
    the best quote of this entire thing is around the 4:30 mark where he says im afraid in the next election the republicans will work for impeachment from day one on a democratic candidate… wait this is exactly what the left did on trump lol like there is literal senate members and big wig left talking about impeachment from the very first day… this comment is hilarious to me

  57. The courts will uphold the law. If they don’t, our country ceases to be a republic, it becomes a dictatorship. It will be the first time someone was held above the law in the history of the US. So, one must believe in the rule of law. You can’t cherry pick which parts of the Constitution you are going to abide by and ignore the parts you don’t. You’re all in, or emigrate to Russia. This place is no longer for you.

  58. Are you seriously expecting us to believe Philippe Reines former advisor to HRS has any idea regarding what ANY Americans think let alone Trump voters? Advisor to HRC is the greatest disqualification imaginable…. couldn't even see Trump coming, and they helped set him in motion. Too many impeachments is not the problem we face, but instead corporate influence. Corporate influence taints the Democratic primary (just compare how MSNBC/CNN/FOX cover Bernie or Tulsi with how independent media does – see for yourself. search 'progressive news' now), it taints senate and representative behavior, which all stirs the desired division of our country. If a rep does not hold your opinion on an issue, imagine how much easier he/she would be to convince if he/she had no donors also needing to be convinced.
