  1. sweden was here

  2. But but but “The call was PERFECT!” is such a bullet proof defense. 🤔😆😆

    • @Margo I KNOW YOU HATE FACTS..ALL LIBERALS DO….. REMEMBER MUELLER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • @Rich Winder IF THAT WAS TRUE HE WOULD HAVE BEEN INDICTED… OR HIS CRONIES WOULD HAVE BEEN..OR HIS SON..OR ..OR …OR..

    • @berdboy
      What, like his campaign manager, foreign policy adviser, national secruity adviser or personal attorney …….. Oh wait!
      PS: There are more!

    • @Rich Winder KEEP TRYING… ALL CONVICTED OF CRIMES COMMITTED LONG BEFORE BEING IN THE CAMPAIGN….JUST BECAUSE THEY WOULD NOT ROLL OVER AND COMPOSE A LIE FOR THE DEMOCRATS….FUNNY

  3. How can anyone in good conscience defend the un-defendable Liar in Chief or Groper in Chief. Take your ad-hominem pick.

  4. Republicans, take note: When you’ve been made a eunuch you might be in the Sultan’s tent, close to power, but you’re rendered powerless.

    • Margo …. ain’t that the truth !

      @Mainely hardly ever watch faux news and i think the same of it as i do do any of the mockingbird media. they feed their audiences what they want to hear.

    • @Mimsy Borogove INNOCENT PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE WITNESSES TESTIFY IN THEIR DEFENSE…WOW!….. GET BACK ON THE MEDICATION PLEASE..

    • Mimsy Borogove | January 22, 2020 at 9:51 PM | Reply

      @berdboy ******
      What you just said is absolutely ridiculous. Guess you’re not too familiar with trial procedures.

    • @Mimsy Borogove I WOULD SAY THE OPPOSITE… NO INNOCENT PERSON ALIVE WOULD TRY AND USE WITNESSES TO SAY THEY ARE INNOCENT…ITS THE PROSECUTIONS JOB TO SHOW [PAY ATTENTION HERE] THAT A PERSON IS GUILTY BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT..SINCE THIS HAS NOT BEEN SHOWN HERE IN THE SCHIFTY SHAM SHOW NO NEED FOR ANY ADDITIONAL WITNESSES… PRETTY SIMPLE ACTUALLY…

    We also have never heard donny boy say “Im being honest, truthful and “… well we wont. Cuz its not.

    The GOP declared that they would not be impartial and are working w the WH then they signed an oath to be impartial and put country snd Constitution first. They told us they would rig it….

  7. Calling our military dopes and babies should be a impeachable offense .
    That from the dotard in chief.

  8. The liar in chief is a pos. That is the root of this problem.

    There will be 35 Senate seats up for election in November including two special elections in AZ and GA. 23 of those are GOP seats! Don’t think that is not in the back of their minds during this trial. They will answer for their silence and complicity.

    • I’m a young voter, when we vote on November for the Presidency can we also vote on Senate/Congress seats? Or how does it work?

    • David Andresen | January 22, 2020 at 7:15 PM | Reply

      It obviously isn’t on their minds. The republicans don’t give two hoots about the election. I can not believe that the Republican voters are as corrupt as their representatives in congress. But I’ve been wrong before…………

    • @Joe A Great question Joe; we elect President’s every four years, Congress every two years and the Senate every six years.
      The elections for all of the above are held on the 1st Tuesday of November of each even numbered year, the last one was 2018, the next is 2020 etc.
      Senators do not all face election at the same time; this year there will be 35 of the 100

    • Hope the Republicans lose all the seats in the House of Representatives and the Senate in November and the presidential election as well.

  10. this outro is the most annoying thing on the internet. and if you listen to hayes on 2x it sounds like he is saying “… just blow me”.

  11. Jay Sekulow is every bit as big a con man as Spanky, only in the bunco-religious sphere. His saying “Why are we here” just shows how oblivious he is to common sense and common decency.

    • George Santana | January 22, 2020 at 9:48 PM | Reply

      You missed his point completely then because your comprehension ability let alone your understanding of US laws are immensely missing. But it is to be expected from DemocRATs supporters. Uninformed and easy swindled by corrupt media.

    • @George Santana “Immensely missing”? Not sure what that means, but your knowledge of my understanding is pure speculation on your part, just as is your assumption of my political affiliation. And those of us with open eyes and ears are informed by what’s right in front of us when it comes to Trump and his sycophants and their corruption and lies. Blaming the media is both tedious and pathetic.

  12. I’m still loving….
    “I wasnt wrong then…I’m just More right now.” -alan dershawitz 2020

    🤣🤣🤣.

  13. He is so cooked by all the president, s men

  14. In November, Democrats will clean up the horrible Republican swamp. We know how to do our job !

  15. 🎶corruption junction what’s your function GOP🎶 it is said that every time Moscow Mitch tells a lie his wattle grows. #TRE45ON

  16. I thought Boxer kicked the bucket years ago.

  17. Jay Sekulow knows exactly why he’s there, for a payday! And a mention in History. Sadly it won’t be a proud moment for his future generations 🤷🏻‍♀️

    When u lay down with dogs you get fleas they say. U can hear the nails crawling down the blackboard from the GOP today Their defense of Trump is ridiculous.!!

  19. “The president broke the law ” we know!

  20. Don’t forget to attack the process whenever you find yourself in court.
