      I watch part of the hearings on C-SPAN and I have to tell you the GOP worked very hard to do a lot of deflection and those GOP officials currently on the committee is half the reason why this is been taking so long and they are the ones that have been misusing taxpayer money and not the Democrats.

    • Lots of people gonna go to jail; all Democrats and Deep State scum.

    • You people are hilarious …
      You always go around yammering about things you know will never happen …

    • @Kevin Mcneil just watch. The Lame Stream Media will be calling the Senate trial a sham and illegal. Obama, the Hunter and Joe comedy team, Hillary, Adam Schiff and his Whistleblower will be called to testify and it wont be pretty for any of them. State Department bureaucrats like wise will be called to testify. It won’t be pretty for them either.

    Trump is a con man. Destroyed Marie Yovanovitch career and is now allowing war crimes to continually be committed (human beings being tied and shot multiple times). None of this would’ve happened had we followed the Muller Report and continued but the pressure in the kettle had to boil to this point. I sincerely hope that this dissolves with respect and dignity because I live in a MAGA neighborhood and yeah. You can see where this can head.

  3. Hour by hour, things get worse for the bloated tangerine.

    • @Tribegal You didn’t read the phone transcript because it was never released. Read the intelligence committee’s impeachment report, unless you’re scared of the truth.

    • @CShield I just RE-read the transcript by searching for “Trump full Ukraine transcript.” I still couldn’t find a crime . Why would the Intel committee’s report, who wants to impeach Trump, tell me anything, except the same biased conclusions that you have?

    • @Tribegal The phone call transcript was never released, stooge. They released a memo of the transcript, which states on the first page that it’s not a verbatim transcript. Read the impeachment report.

    • @CShield Stooge? OK, we’re done. You say Trump is done. If he is, I’ll come back and apologize. If he isn’t, I’m going to remind you of it until he leaves office in 2025.

    • @Tribegal Lol.. poor baby, you’re wrong and now you’re throwing a fit. That’s adorable, princess.

  4. looks like all the republicans on the panel were obstructing justice.

      @Liberalovsky Fredo Moscowwitch – Your entire statement is weak and insulting. It doesn’t matter which party they represent and I can’t even see how you could possibly know that the are all Democrats. Furthermore, why does it matter whether the Republicans or Democrats, they are witnesses called to testimony provide their professional information and knowledge.

      Seems to me if they don’t fit your simple little perfect world then they are no good and that in itself makes you the lowest type of person on earth. If you don’t like my statement then get over it and move on.

    • @Liberalovsky Fredo Moscowitch WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA your a comedian right? or Russian?????? Hows the weather?

    • @Stormfire962 #IMASTARCITIZEN You didn’t even understand what I meant. You must be related to trump.

  5. how many times did Jerry Nadler have to rap his gavel to get the clowns to shut their big mouths?

  6. What’s the matter with the Re thug li cans? Stalling won’t help you! The facts are the facts! It doesn’t matter what you sat it matters what you can prove!

  7. GOP Congress members are disgusting, these are experts and constitutional lawyers

    • Oba*** Man…..a Good Judge would not tolerate their lack of Evidence in their Comments.He would also remind them not to WASTE the Courts Time. When Matt Gaetz asked them to raise their HANDS if they had an Evidence from the Schiff Hearing, not one raised their HAND. Professor Karlan should not be in front of LAW Students, she is unsound and is Delusional.

    • Megan Williams | December 5, 2019 at 2:02 AM | Reply

      @B.J Cameron They were interpreting the law, not presenting evidence.

    • @Megan Williams …so is interpreting the Law when Karlan takes a cheap shot at Baron, the President’s Son. When she has to cross the road when approaching Trump Tower. When she makes donation to Warren/Obama and Clinton. Karlan is completely MAD for even turning up to this Hearing. ProfessorTurley and the others were Democrats so that makes these Professors legitimate. Sorry Megan but I find this hearing has no credibility. President Trump has just called out President Macron of France for leaving ISIS fighters in the Middle East. These people carry French Passports and Trump does not want America to take responsibility. President Trump taking care of US interests.

      @B.J Cameron I looked at what horrible, dreadful insulting untruth that was levelled at young Master Trump. No, she should not have mentioned his name, her point was valid though. The Trump family are not Royalty, a President is not an Absolute Monarch (neither is Queen Elizabeth – she is a Constitutional Monarch). Yes the speaker could have found a better way of expressing that point, not raising the child’s name, but her point still stands. Did you jump up and down when lies were told about the Obama girls’ parentage? Or Chelsea Clinton?

      Or the Bush Children?

    • @Megan Williams….a skilled advocate would never let their argument get Personal. With Political differences it is very easy to take sides and forget the true purpose that is to be validated. President Trump has just had the UN council at the White House and his openness with these members is so refreshing. 2% by NATO countries brings RESPECT, Canada and France have been openly exposed and are not respected.

  8. Prof Pamela Karlan destroyed GOP Congress members.

  9. GOP Congress members were diverting the conversation to the experts making donations to president Obama and Hillary Clinton campaign.
    GOP have no respect for the u.s. constitution shame on these SOB’S

    Considering the pre-video paid advertisements I can guarantee something that isn’t in Trump’s wallet! A Capital One card! I’m starting to consider Capital One Bank may be one of the creditors Trump scamed by leveraging bankruptcy laws to screw them out of loan repayments!!

  11. So why was Matt “I drive better when I’m drunk” Gaetz asking the professors questions about President Obama?!?!
    Gaetz: ” So what did you think about Obama’s tan suit professor?  Did you like it,  YES or NO?”

  12. This is the first time in America history a constitutional lawyers who are experts to give their opinions on Trump impeachment, are being questions about their donations to a democratic party.

  13. What a bunch of *ssholes they are.

    Ms.Karlan came in with her gun out and load shoot bullet wasn’t have it from the uneducation clueless GOP who are clueless about the rules and laws which they should already know or read before this hearing.

  15. Do we want a King Trump I the Nasty of America?

  16. Three experts and one goldendoodle who thinks the world moves too fast.

  17. 2:00 You seek recognition and privilege?
    Well, I bet you do, sweetheart!

  18. You know there is another constitutional law professor who graduated from Harvard Law. His name is Barack Obama.

  19. Good bye Grumpy-Trumpy !!

  20. None of them had an answer to matt Gaetz question do the have any fact based from Schiff hearning
    Reply was priceless
    I rest my case all over your face
    Can anyone give a better answer than these so called scholars
    If so you should have been the one testifying lol
