  1. The Founders understanding of bribery was derived from English law, under which bribery was understood as an officeholder’s abuse of the power of an office to obtain a private benefit rather than for the public interest. This definition not only encompasses Trump’s conduct—it practically defines it.

    Trump took 400 million in taxpayer dollars, which had been appropriated by Congress, and used it to bribe a foreign country into taking specific actions that would only benefit him personally.

    The Founders placed articles of impeachment in the Constitution for the purpose of protecting our democracy. A democracy that Trump clearly has no respect for, and is trying to tear apart.

    Article II, Section 4, says the president “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

    So shall it be written, so shall it be done.

  2. The Founding Fathers would have had a traitor and criminal like Trump charged, tried, convicted and executed within a week.

  3. Trump's Impeachment failed because you have corrupt Republicans as the majority of the Senate. Trump will really pay for his crimes when the American people vote in the 2020 Elections.

  4. I learned a lot from this… like if you in trouble you can say at court I dont remember…i do not record…
    Not that i remember now… if they catch me i can say I can do whatever i want… witness? Nooo that will take so long no , NO THANK YOU .. ….. 🤣

  5. He is still impeached. trump* (impeached) will wear the stain of impeachment for the rest of his worthless life. The little asterisk next to his name says it all.

  6. 🇺🇸 vote we need different leadership. Senate is corrupt bunch of Russian symphethizers colluding with the enemy.

  7. That's good for her az tearing up those papers never seen people supposed to be so bushie and fancy.. be so full of bullsh and hatred…let it marinate!!

  8. Yet I don't think the founder's would accept a Senate trial with no witnesses or evidence. Especially when the president's party refuses to "allow" them. That would be like a criminal trial based solely on circumstance.

  9. Nancy Pelsosi and her democratic party are shameless and trash.
    This is why they are on the way out and the citizen of the United States are sick of their lies.
    Their corruption has gone on to long it is time for them to all go the way of the wind.
    Trump is doing a good job and will continue to do a good job. Just think of all the things that could have been accomplished if the democrats would have been doing just a small part of their jobs instead of just whining and crying everyday because they lost a election and their bridge troll queen got sent packing.
    Just vote Trump in 2020 and enjoy having someone in the office that actually loves their Country.

  10. Never in my lifetime of 54 years have I heard or seen a President talk or have actions of vulgarity. I’m so ashamed of this “so called “ President, and our congress allowing and standing beside this goon!!

  11. The impeachment is a badge of honor, considering who was spearheading this initiative. His acquittal is justified. Trump in 2020!
