      But we know the Truth, Drag Queen “Rachel”! 😁 😂 🤣 Biden Confessed to the Crimes of which Trump is being accused of. 😁 😂 🤣 That Truth – the one which you avoid like the Plague, Transvestite “Rachel”. 😁 😂 🤣

    They don’t want the truth, that would be inconvenient for them. They want a fascist state that gives them unlimited power.

    • Well most of them do represent the descendants from former confederate states, looking at why Lincoln was killed explains a lot, & they’re still at it; main reason why we still have a misunderstood 2A, post mass shootings & gun violence; then they want to threaten civil war like its a football game; when we know there’s nothing civil about war, or even football. They’re all the same unconscious minded people, & the main reason why the America we live in today is corrupt & violent.

    • who the democrats or the republicans?

  3. For sure the witnesses that Schumer is asking for are the least sympathetic to the Dems. So what’s the problem? Are they likely to spill the beans?

    • @Mind Freshener Well actually – no he did not.

      There is and was no crime when the Vice President of the US demanded that the corrupt Ukrainian prosecutor (Viktor Shokin) should be removed from his office. The fact is that he was *not* investigating anyone (not even Burisma). Instead he was actively covering for the corrupted oligarchs from the Russia backed previous administration.
      That is why the US, European Union and pretty much any other Western European democracy demanded the same. The withholding of the US aid in that case was open policy and was decided openly by the government in full cooperation with the Congress (thus not by Biden by himself).

      @Eneri Giilaan Stop repeating the DNC talking point LIES! Shokin was on OAN a week ago and implicated Biden personally. What got Biden to ask for him to be removed – Shokin freezing the Mafia Outfit Burisma’s assets. What was his son doing working for a Mafia Company?

    I wish this was longer. I just love Chuck. And Rachael too!

  5. How can a jury (the Senate) deliberate without witnesses? Well, I guess that’s how they do it in Soviet Russia, Moscow Mitch.

  6. exactly! ty minority leader schumer and dr maddow!

  7. Stop with the short videos msnbc. You could have put the entire interview in one video. Stop chasing views.

    • While I would prefer they for instance put the whole show up, minus commercials, I think the reason is that in today’s instant gratification, social media environment, people have come to have extremely short attention spans. Take posts under YouTube videos, in public forums, and such as an example, those tiny ones about ten words long, or less, that just repeat some catch phrase type thing tend to be popular, but if someone writes even just a few sentences, you can get responses like TL;DR (Too Long; Didn’t Read), rants about people writing a wall of text, or they’re just largely ignored.

    A trial without witnesses or evidence?
    Are they supposed to simply stare at each other the whole time?

    • Dems have not provided real crimes .. Not in law books. Impeachment is for high crimes and misdemeanors. Dead on arrival at Senate.

    • Richard Darlington | December 20, 2019 at 6:29 PM | Reply

      Failure to uphold the oath of office is not a crime per se.
      But it is impeachable, just as an example.
      Try to understand. This is not a court of law. The rules are quite different.
      For example, in a jury trial, the verdict must be unanimous. However, in a Senate trial, only 2/3 are required to convict.

    • @Richard Darlington I understand the Dems have been an impeachment committee in search of a crime for 3 years. I understand Dems at FBI weaponized the dept and got spying warrants by fraud. I understand Lois Lerner at IRS also weaponized her office to target conservatives.. All those are abuse of office and FAILURE to uphold the oath of office. Dems have given Non Crimes as their reason.. Not upheld the constitution they swore to uphold. I watched Nadler Schiff Pelosi write new rules that forbid GOP from calling witnesses at the House Impeachment hearing, Deny Trump the right of counsel by denying his lawyers at hearings. Blah, blah “it’s possible” .. go play in traffic.

      Obviously, you have a perception problem.
      I know you’ve heard this before but, if Obama behaved like Trump, your head would explode.
      Merry Christmas!

    • @Richard Darlington No .. Not perception. I’ve just provided a list of facts and abuses of office the crooked Democrats have engaged in. Obama politically weaponized the IRS, FBI, DOJ .. Obama gave Uranium to Iran and Doubled the National Debt for your children and mine to toil under.. A Democrat named Barney Frank abused Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and caused the Sub Prime Meltdown that gave us the worst economy since the Great Depression. Obama did enough damage to the US and strengthened enough of our enemies… Blah blah “if Obama” .. Watch how this thread ages as Obama Admin abuses fill the rear view mirror of public concern.

  9. Schumer seems to be avoiding the possibility of not having the trial.

  10. Longer vids.

    Whom ever is in charge of the highly classified server SHOULD come forward and give all of them to Congress

  13. Extremely serious. This will be in the history books.

  14. The media’s relationship with these people is too cosy – and that goes for Democrats and Republicans.

    this is joke

    Might help to know that Pelosi’s move here, withholding the articles for better trial conditions in the Senate, is not only indicative of quid pro quo but is not even within her powers as speaker under law…ooopppsss

    A trial without evidence or witnesses is literally “he said, he said.”

  18. Shango Sankofa | December 20, 2019 at 4:53 PM | Reply

    Blocking/gagging witnesses is a clear display of consciousness of guilt! You’re wrong and you know you’re wrong!

  19. So no impeachment for the Democrats if Nancy doesn’t want to hand it over. Awesome 👍 😁

  20. Lets hear from John Bolton, Rudi and my Favorite Get over it! Mulvaney?
