  1. Not only do Ukrainians get killed while the money was held up, but Congress appropriated the money.
    Does anyone know if Trump has the authority to freeze money?

  2. Never Trumper : The highest award of honour that the president of the United State of America can bestow upon a citizen. Similar to the Presidential Medal of Freedom, but more exclusive in that recipients must meet minimum standards of intelligence and integrity.

  3. Are you people out of your mind?!, Trump wants to investigate Bidens deals in Ukraine,…and ALL Ukrainians knows about the Biden performance those days, …I'm telling you this as Ukrainian!!! That money!?, laughable 400 millions would be enough for victory over russia?,…or it would be just enough to get few hundred more Ukrainians killed? Just shot f…up!!!!!!!, Get yourself a new president, like 
    hilary,…hopefully she finally attack Russia,….and your both countries will be wiped out from the face of the earth!!!

  4. I’m more interested in the circumstances that led to the resumption of the funds. Who, when, what reason was given.


  6. Show us the proof yoiu have.Dates times proper paperwork. I wouls think that the paper work they have will not match up with the real facts just another scam they are pushing now.

  7. Ari you did not let him finush his point on the ttial. I did not get the POINT of what was missing! What is the jury missing?

  8. i understand the utility of calling it "bribery" (it's specifically in the constitution)…but this was straight up extortion..which is worse. bribery is based on want, extortion on need.

  9. federal bribery statute, 18 USC 201, defines bribery to include attempted bribery. It’s enough to ‘seek’ a bribe — you don’t actually have to pull your illegal scheme off.”

  10. None of this matters. The GOP won't turn on him. He's gonna be in office at least for the rest of his first term. Best we can hope for is an aorta clogged with chicken grease to save the country.

  11. I’m from Mexico ?? and I’m sorry but this is the most entertained I’ve been all year! ? – all seriousness and corrupt President aside – I’m sorry this is happening but oh how fun it is to see the racist president go down baby! ❤️

  12. Trump's super ego and narcissistic behaviour of "knowing all" and "me first" attitude is really far too much, beyond normal.. His cognitive ability is impaired because of this ego, seeing the rules and laws as his enemies, trying to create his own rules and demanding absolute loyalty from his minions to follow his own rules. That is what the Republicans have become. Cult.

  13. The NRA paid Trump $30 million in bribery money. We have more dead innocent children, shot dead at school. This should be the number one issue in America. There is no public safety anymore.

  14. When you boil it down – Trump should be impeached for TREASON:- He sold out US National Security, your security, for a catchphrase that he could use in the 2020 election.

  15. Oh boy, I never really cared about which party I voted for. But I'm coming back here a year from now and I think MSNBC is going to be very disappointed.

  16. Trump getting ready to be shut down for real, everyone in his administration is trying to testify against him and bolten ready to, he coming out of Washington d.c. and going to prison. Why did trump release money right after he got caught, this shows guilt.

  17. Bribery is the act of giving or receiving something of value in exchange for some kind of influence or action in return, that the recipient would otherwise not offer.§30121. Contributions and donations by foreign nationals

    (a) Prohibition

    It shall be unlawful for-
    (1) a foreign national, directly or indirectly, to make-
    (A) a contribution or donation of money or other thing of value, or to make an express or implied promise to make a contribution or donation, in connection with a Federal, State, or local election;
    (B) a contribution or donation to a committee of a political party; or
    (C) an expenditure, independent expenditure, or disbursement for an electioneering communication (within the meaning of section 30104(f)(3) of this title); or

    (2) a person to solicit, accept, or receive a contribution or donation described in subparagraph (A) or (B) of paragraph (1) from a foreign national.

  18. "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

  19. Contempt of Congress is defined in statute, 2 U.S.C.A. § 192, enacted in 1938, which states that any person who is summoned before Congress who "willfully makes default, or who, having appeared, refuses to answer any question pertinent to the question under inquiry" shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to a maximum $1,000 fine and 12 month imprisonment.

  20. this isn't the beginning of the end of trump
    this is the end of the begining of trump
    the senate will never, ever, remove trump from office.
    the electoral college will give trump a second term.
    the liberals only strategy is to drag out the house of reps impeachment investigation of trump past the 2020 election…and hope trump continues to committ crimes.
    in FEB 2021 democrats evaluate what the have.

  21. I can say with almost 100% certainty that Trump and the Republicans will change strategy to blame Sondland and the others involved for theses actions and say they did this without Trumps approval. If I were anyone involved I would be worried right now. Trump and the Republicans have already shown they put party and selves over constitution and country. They will have no problem with throwing the others under the bus and of course Trump is already setting this up with the “ I hardly know the guy” statement about Sondland. It’s a national disgrace. Republicans from this era will go down in history as sellouts to a Criminal President.

  22. Ari briefly asked the key question, which was whether the OMB employee would have been told Trump wanted the military aid to be withheld in order to pressure Ukraine to investigate the Bidens. Of course the employee would not have been told that; he would have been told some other reason. It's going to be very hard to prove Trump knew the aid was withheld to obtain the Biden investigations, and without that proof the bribery impeachment charge against Trump will probably collapse and backfire against the Democrats in 2020. Giuliani and Mulvaney appear guilty of extortion, but proving Trump knew about it will be hard. Pompeo was presumably told about the extortion by the diplomats in Ukraine, and since Pompeo didn't stop it that may be the strongest evidence that Trump knew about it. Pompeo is like "the dog that didn't bark" in the Sherlock Holmes story "The Adventure of Silver Blaze." The fact that the dog didn't bark let Holmes conclude the dog knew the perp. When Pompeo learned about the extortion, he surely would have asked Trump to confirm Giuliani was doing what Trump wanted, and since Pompeo didn't interfere with the extortion we can presume Trump's answer was Yes.

  23. Being naturally cynical, I'm wondering if Sandy might be under orders to lie while pretending to "break ranks with the White House."

  24. "Shut up about the hearsay if you're blocking all the witnesses!" 
    –ex-Senator Claire McCaskill

    (an innocent man does not ignore Congressional subpeonas that request documents and block witnesses testimony.)

  25. Ffs Ari,..pls stop asking your guests their opinions,and analysis ,and then before they can actually finish,You then jump in,cutting them dead,..with you trying to finish their analysis for them!…we get it,you’re a lawyer too.
    Pls pls stop!

  26. If these Government Officials are 'Nerds' (which is not a bad thing, since Nerds are in the most part smart and diligent), then Limbaugh would be a 'Dork' (which have no endearing qualities at all, and are considered unattractive, boring, and completely useless).

  27. Impeachment subpoenas are not a polite invitation, rather a direct instruction.
    Arrest Bolton, Mulvaney, and Giuliani, and literally drag them in for questioning. Then jail them if they refuse to cooperate.

  28. They led this bewildered old man out of the White House grounds, in a straight jacket & as they took him away, he could be heard saying:

    Donald Trump & Rudi Giuliani are both obviously "Never-Trumpers" & President Trump doesn't even know this Donald J Trump who made that phone call? It was obviously Adam Schiff doing Trump's voice & making up a call to the Ukranian President, because horrible things were said on that call & Trump's call was perfect in every way. There's never been such a perfect phone call & the Ukranian President said that it was the most perfect call that he's ever been on! The entire White House is riddled with Never-Trumpers, none of whom the President has ever met & he certainly doesn't know who any of his appointed ambassadors or staff are? Who the f**k is this Rudi guy anyway? Trump barely knew they guy, who was peripherally involved but like his Campaign Manager, Paul Manafort, he wasn't reallt involved in anything to do with the campaign at all! Only Trump was, as he's his own staff & calls all the shots, doing all the crimes & being the best Never-Trumper of everybody! Even the great Constitutional Radio Shock-jock, the Right Outrageous Mark Levin BS MoreBS Mountains o'BS "Live BS in the Morning with your favourite madmen conspiracists, Hannity & Levin" & many, many other prestigous academic qualifications (we have that guy who literally flog them on the internet, so if anybody needs a few degrees, see my lawyer, Rudi, who I don't know & have never met, but is a good & patriotic American, who I know nothing about!) said that my call was perfect! Everybody who's a Democrat is corrupt & should be sued for treason immediately; especially that Nancy Pelosi, or as I call her, Nancy! And corrupt Biden, corrupt Clinton, corrupt Comey, corrupt Schiff, who fibs & one thing that Donald Trump just cannot abide, it's somebody who tells a porkie-pie! Trump is well known for his tireless rooting out of lies & corruption, wherever it may be (but not in my tax returns! Don't look there, but take it from me that they're perfect!). You're all corrupt! Every last Never-Trumping one of you & especially the media, who're double-corrupt! I'll be releasing transcripts of my most perfect calls (mostly to pizza hut, so you'll see how perfect they are! I made them before all this happened, so they're even more important & we'll see how much impeachable pizza I ordered, which is why this sham must stop now & can't go forwards, because I'm the most transparent President ever (to not release my taxes). My call really was perfect! Bill Barr wanted to say so badly, but then I talked him out of doing so because it's just so perfect that I don't need to show anybody anything other than my tweeting about how this must stop now, before anybody learns what happened or sees what happened or finds out how perfect my calls were! Biden, he's the one you should be looking at?! Biden; he was so corrupt that he went around calling himself the Vice President & conducting foreign policy! He's on tape bragging about it! What more proof do you need people? He's on tape being a Democrat VP & what could be more corrupt than that, other than being a coloured Senator from Chicago who rescued the US economy & the world after the crash, saved the auto industry, negotiated peace & stopped Iran working towards any weapons, won a Nobel Peace Prize & faced down Russian agression to make it clear to Putin that the US would not stand for his thuggery?! He wouldn't even allow the Saudi's to murder the odd Washington Post journalist for money, which I did & he was too stupid to turn the US's back on our military allies & instead rent our military out to the highest bidder, such as the Saudis, or to roll over for Russia & abandon Syria to them , while focussing instead on war cimes like stealing Syrian oil, but Trump has changed all of that so no longer does America stand for freedom, but now we stand for whatever & whoever pays me enough to send Americans to fight & die wherever I can make the most cash! That's smart that is! That's a good thing, not a bad thing! Vlad & Kim will love it. As far as thise Kurds who took out ISIS or the Europeans that Vlad so dislikes, we're no longer standing with them unless they pay us a lot more than they al;ready do, because that's the Trump way! Trump Firs…I mean America First (which IS Trump first!) & bowing out of Vladimir's way is a good thing, not a bad thing! Perect call, it was a perfect call!!!!!!!!

  29. Please America, recognise that Trump’s actions have led to a weakening of the Ukraine’s ability to stand up to Russian aggression and the deaths of those who are struggling to do so. America has broken it’s promise and the cost is slaughter. Are you happy with that?

  30. Democrats STAR witness in testimony recap – My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw TRUMP pass out at 31 Flavors after his call to this Russian like guy over in some African country called Ucrane just the other night I think. For SURE this is m-peach-able. Either way I guess it's pretty serious.

  31. Poor republicans. They are spending all their time trying to discredit witnesses instead of making a case for the president. LMAO!

  32. Thanks to Trump Russia has now taken over and control of the US army base in the Ukraine. He just delivered the Ukraine to Russia.

  33. Very enjoyable to watch king trump the last, retreat behind really immature statements “ I’m not watching inquiry “ etc. I’m starting to believe the rumours that he CANNOT read. Evidence IS piling up. The conman in chief.

  34. Corroborated testimony proved:
    Trump has violated his oath of office, betrayed this nation, and
    committed the impeachable acts of bribery, extortion, abuse of power,
    and obstruction of justice. Any president having done so must be impeached and should be REMOVED

  35. Racist AOC and the ISIS-loving Squad confirmed it. This is just a political sham investigation. They want to destroy America from within!
    Only Trump can save us from the radicals’ hatred.
    AOC: “Only the Democrats’ witnesses are relevant”… Thank God we have the 2nd Amendment.
    Let’s give Trump 4 more years!

  36. and just a little advice agent 999999 or 666666 depends on who side you on use that phone in your shoe the next time ok

  37. Humpty Trumpty WILL GO TO JAIL for the MURDERS of INNOCENT Ukranian soldiers who could NOT fight without this appropriate monetary aid!!! GUILTY AS CHARGED!!!

  38. Who ever thought that one orange con man could throw the entire world into chaos and be supported by the #Retardblicans. Then still have in light of all this evidence Americans still going along with the ridiculousness. He has put us all at risk on the world platform, degraded all our institutions and just muddied everything up. They believed he would drain the swamp. No he "IS" the swamp!!!!!!

  39. It isn't important that they released the money. What is important is it was "withheld" And it is pretty obvious as to why.

  40. Being a "professional nerd" is about the highest possible rank you can have. Like a university professor in maths or in quantum physics. Far higher than a Republican senator who come just below swine herders or dung diggers.

  41. As for who released the money: it was Bolton. He made a coup and decided onehandedly that Ukraine should get their help immediately, thereby spiting the efforts of Trump to extort them. That was also the reason he resigned.

  42. The new GOP oath "I Congressperson/Senator _____________, duly elected by the people of the United States of America, do solemnly swear to uphold the absolute right of Donald J Trump to undermine and weaken the bastion of the Constitution, the U.S. State Department and Intelligence agencies, giving aid and comfort to enemies and hostile powers, both foreign and domestic by doing for them what they have been unable to do for themselves the last 230 years, so help me God."

  43. Education

    At Davidson College, Sandy earned a bachelor's in politics and economics in 1987.[1] He went on to earn a second bachelor's in philosophy, politics and economics at the University of Oxford on a Marshall Scholarship that he'd won in 1985.[1][4] He then earned a Master of Public Administration from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University in 1991 on a Truman Scholarship.[5] After graduating, he was nominated for a Henry Luce Scholarship for a placement at the Institute for International Policy Studies in Tokyo from 1991 to 1992.[6]


    Sandy was signatory on at least one "apportionment letter" that prevented the release of military aid to Ukraine in 2019.[3]

  44. Don't keep interrupting, Melber. You have an experienced prosecutor there, and twice you interrupted him just as he was getting to the main point of his reply. Sorry, but personally I would rather hear the expert's view. I know you keep mentioning that you are a trained lawyer, but that's not your current job, which is to elicit the opinions of your guests.

  45. Lets just take a moment to imagine Trumpet being questioned by the Dems in the Senate????? He is going to lose the plot!!???? Not that he ever HAD the plot in the 1st place…apart from his super shady Ukraine plot, which isnt going too well for him atm????

  46. ari, i love your program, but you have a hoooorible habit of interrupting and not letting guests finish their sentences. horrible. please allow them to finish their thoughts.

  47. Can't quite get a lock on- was congress aware that the money they allotted was not paid for months? It seems to me that their should be a procedure for them to be notified when any monies that are appropriated to has been delivered to whatever "institution" it was designated for ?

  48. Interesting? He had to be gotten out of the way to "implement"  the hold on Ukrainian funds? Bit by bit it keeps coming out.

  49. Democratic definition of a witness…. I heard that he said that he overheard something that he thinks he said but I don't know what exactly he said….


  51. Pretty soon you'll get people from IRS, Commerce Dept, speaking out about illegal holds on his income tax, etc. The dam is breaking, everybody, let's all push together, 1 2 3, push, etc.
