  1. The Republican core excuse: "Trump is too stupid to be guilty". smh. There are all kinds of stupid people in prison.
    "You know he was a dummy when you elected him". We didn't "elect" him, the electoral college did, which is why it should be abolished.
    Do you know what they call a "popular vote" in other countries? A vote.

  2. MITCH MCCONNELL " THE LION OF THE SENATE " JUST NAILED SCHUMER'S EMPTY NUT SACK TO THE SENATE FLOOR WITH A NAIL GUN BAM BAM! CRYING CHUCK!🤣😂 NERVOUS NANCY PELOSI HAD SCHUMER NEUTERED! HA HA,HA,LOL LMAO 😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  3. This is not a trial. This is corruption on full display to the world of the republican party. They will vote to acquit but it will be an acquittal on paper only. EVERYONE, including the republicans KNOW that trump is guilty as sin and is unfit for office. The only recourse now is for the American people to vote this POS out of office. Vote the vile and corrupted republicans out of office.. on every level.

  4. Moscow Mitch and senate Republicans are afraid of the Truth. Keep covering the crimes of Trump, votes aware of the Trump.

  5. "FAIRNESS" PRO-LIFE and PEDOPHILE FIXER lawyers?

    Hmm.. Makes not-so common pedophile sense, that the [email protected] religious oligarchs want more and more poor kids to abuse and use, then turn into private prison "investments".

    CHARITY for all! The pedophile SUPER-billionaires said they are paying. Ha! So amusing this place called America. Let me say it with a Jon:

    Are YOU AMUSED Yet, People of Earth? Well, I am.

    Predictable White Idiocy and religious nepotistic corruption always amuse me tremendously.

  6. The truth is if Trump had nothing to hide there would be no issue with providing relevant information and documents and Moscow Mitch would not be essentially be acting as a traitor to the American people and their wishes to have a legitimate Impeachment trial of Trump. If you believe in the Constitution then this is in direct violation of everything the Constitution stands for and what it requires which is to hold the President accountable for his actions.

  7. Apparently, Moscow Mitch believes his shell makes him impervious to the wrath of voters in the 2020 election.🐢
    It is America's hope, that former Marine, Lt. Col. Amy McCrath, rids the country once and for all of Moscow Mitch, the most corrupt Senator in American history.
    Semper Fi…

  8. Brings to mind a poem by Shelley, where are your protests against trump and his GOP’s cover up America?!
    'The old laws of England – they
    Whose reverend heads with age are gray,
    Children of a wiser day;
    And whose solemn voice must be
    Thine own echo – Liberty!

    'On those who first should violate
    Such sacred heralds in their state
    Rest the blood that must ensue,
    And it will not rest on you.

    'And if then the tyrants dare
    Let them ride among you there,
    Slash, and stab, and maim, and hew, –
    What they like, that let them do.

    'With folded arms and steady eyes,
    And little fear, and less surprise,
    Look upon them as they slay
    Till their rage has died away.

    'Then they will return with shame
    To the place from which they came,
    And the blood thus shed will speak
    In hot blushes on their cheek.

    'Every woman in the land
    Will point at them as they stand –
    They will hardly dare to greet
    Their acquaintance in the street.

    'And the bold, true warriors
    Who have hugged Danger in wars
    Will turn to those who would be free,
    Ashamed of such base company.

    'And that slaughter to the Nation
    Shall steam up like inspiration,
    Eloquent, oracular;
    A volcano heard afar.

    'And these words shall then become
    Like Oppression's thundered doom
    Ringing through each heart and brain,
    Heard again – again – again –

    'Rise like Lions after slumber
    In unvanquishable number –
    Shake your chains to earth like dew
    Which in sleep had fallen on you –
    Ye are many – they are few.':

  9. What do you call a trial without witnesses and evidence?  It's called a farce and a cover-up.
    What do you call a country that would allow something like this to happen? You would call it a banana republic, and a failed State.
    If this is allowed to happen, It will be yet another example of Trump and republicans giving a middle-finger to the American people, and the Constitution. 70% of Americans want to hear from the witnesses themselves. Republicans are essentially saying that what the American people want doesn't matter.  The American people have spoken, and we will be watching.

  10. Squeaky bum time! 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 👍 👍 👍 👍 👍
    Watch the WH defense "bench lawyers" SQUIRM throughout the arguments!!
    They KNOW they are on their last jobs, save backroom managers in some doggy law firms!!

  11. Republicans know trump is hiding evidence ask yourselves why you got a brain use it ok he's guilty that's why don't lose your seats over this voters will remember the cover up 🌊🌊🌊

  12. An impeachment inquiry voted on by the House without all the relevant evidence is not a fair impeachment inquiry. Fixed that for ya Zoe…….Come back after you have done your job correctly and fairly….It is not the Senates job to fix your blatant malfeasance…

  13. Our president, your president will win reelection and the Republicans will retake the house. The vile extreme anti American leftist agenda of the Dems will be crushed.

  14. The president did NOTHING WRONG, this whole impeachment is driven by hate and emotion. It is a partisan political hatchet job on the president (who they hate) and the presidency (they don't care if it is harmed their mad) This will go bad for the ACQUITTAL IS COMING soon.

  15. If the House Managers want more witnesses and more evidence, then withdraw the articles of impeachment and go back and do your job. Call those witnesses and get that evidence. Nothing is stopping them. And when you get all the witnesses and all the documents you want, then have another impeachment vote, and if it passes send it to the Senate (and try not to sit on it for 4 weeks like you did last time.) Is it really that hard?? House of Representatives do your job. Senate, do your job… easy peazy..

  16. Moscow Mitch is mostly like hiding something hence why he’s trying so hard to cover up. If Trump goes down he’s bringing everyone else down with him

  17. Senate Republicans now officially covering-up, actively complicit in the crimes of Trump and his administration, blocking documents from being subpoenaed for the Senate impeachment trial before arguments. Their shame and disgrace is now memorialized forever in history.

  18. Without free and fair elections, there is no democracy, no national security. Republicans and Trump both cheating the American people of not only a fair impeachment trial, but stealing their votes, robbing their national security, as well.

  19. "With each piece of information that comes out despite the White House’s blockade, the public is reminded of two things: First, the president used the power of his office to gain a personal, partisan, and corrupt advantage in 2020; and second, he has obstructed all efforts to investigate him. He’s being impeached for both." ~Austin Evers, American Oversight

  20. Sen. Hirono: "Trump is trying to rig this trial using Mitch McConnell to prevent any witnesses or any documents from being produced. Rigging is the right word. Another word is cheating. He's cheating…the American people."

  21. Republicans excusing unprecedented, total Obstruction of Congress: "Of course he's not asserting Executive Privilege! Trump's exercising and extending our white privilege!"

  22. The bones he will face he promised it true the Lord does not go back on his word. Who will join him one or two ?
    Make these words be heard #GOP

  23. Q: How many Republicans does it take to change a real dim light bulb?
    A: Never got changed, they're still in the dark…instructed by Russia and Faux problem due to Earth's rotation, and also its present alignment with Ukrainus.

  24. Lied yet NBC did not call her out on it—>>Fact Check: No, President Trump Did Not Say Article II Gave Him Absolute Power

    CLAIM: President Donald Trump believes that he has absolute power under Article II of the U.S. Constitution and must therefore be impeached.

    VERDICT: False. Trump was talking specifically about the power to fire Robert Mueller.

    The House impeachment managers — all Democrats — argued Tuesday at the start of Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate that Trump believed that Article II of the Constitution meant he can do “whatever I want.” Both Reps. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) presented deceptively edited video that cur out the context of Trump’s words.

    Breitbart News noted:

    As Breitbart News’ Charlie Spiering pointed out when Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) first misquoted the president as saying, “Article II says I can do whatever I want,” Trump had been specifically referring to the power to hire and fire executive officials, specifically Special Counsel Robert Mueller — whom he did not, in the end, fire.

    Later, during House Judiciary Committee hearings, Democrat counsel Norm Eisen — ironically, once the “ethics” czar for President Barack Obama — used a deceptively edited clip of a speech Trump gave in July 2019 to the youth group Turning Point USA. The context, again, was the Mueller investigation — but Democrats edited that out of the video he presented to constitutional “expert” witness Noah Feldman, who participated with Eisen in the misleading charade:

    Schiff and Laufkran used the deceptively edited clip regardless of the fact that it had been debunked last month.

  25. Im sorry, but why drag somebody to court for wrongdoing. And then, ohh ups i need more evidence. Be better prepared next time, this i just waste of money and time.

  26. Most Dems and repubs are liars ,9-11 proved that! Ill laugh my a.. off if 9-11 cover ups are exposed but that would result in what Dr.Alan Sabrosky stated! This whole scenario is b.s and Trump will be reelected because those talking are bought and sold! Money has always been God to them!

  27. You stipid which this is what the House of Representatives was suppose to do. They failed to do it
    and now they want the Senate to correct they mistakes.

  28. NBC and the Deep State 'Corporate Socialist Globalist Empire' will take Orange Man Bad down for his heinous crimes against the peace loving peoples republic. Oh wait! I meant to say "his crimes against the Ivory Towered Limousine Socialists."

  29. NBC is a RACIST propaganda outlet that pushes an agenda of white supremacist hatred & bigotry.
    They are violating the Constitution & should be held accountable for their despicable views!

    Do you absolute morons like it when the same slander is pointed right back at you, you disgusting traitors?
    Anyone else feel like suing NBC for slander? – http://archive.is/XAzcp#selection-815.3-815.17

  30. So the Dems want a fair trial,President Trump desreves a fair trial..he is the accused..How can it be fair when 5 of his presidential rival candidates are judge and jury within these proceedings???The House pushed this fake impeachment through,totally partisan,andc presented the case to the senate..If the House did not have justifiable evidence to support the impeachment articles..thats on THEM..Trump does not have to prove his innosence…he is innocent until proven guilty…PERIOD

  31. I guess everyone who goes to trial now can withhold evidence also….. if his trial can do it so can anyone who goes to trial here on out can

  32. I thought the Dumbs had alot of evidence to impeach and remove? Now they want the Senate to bring on more witnesses? Why? Their case is thin at best! A president can have an investigation of a vice president and son who are milking their position to get wealth. Like the Clinton's and their phony Clinton initiative. Quid pro Joe is sooo guilty, and it's relevant to this impeachment fiasco. And Lofgren is from San Jose, another California rep who is delusional.

  33. This tyrant felony president backed by a senate that will violate the oath of office! Criminals run this government!

  34. Lol this woman uses the New York Times as a cite? Did she go to college? This paper is not evidence based nor scholarly reviewed, moreover it’s a leftist rag.

  35. You'd think this parade float could at least dress in a manner respectful of the Senate. She's wearing some kind of ill fitting yard sale blouse with a way over sized jacket thrown over. Her hair looks like a terribly worn out broom. What a slob.
