Day One Of The Public Phase Of President Donald Trump’s Impeachment | Deadline | MSNBC

  1. How can there be a fair election, when there is no Federal Election Committee? Trump will say it was rigged and he will cheat like crazy.

    1. Don’t forget that Moscow Mitch is linked with the voting machines which are not checked by the government before or after the election. It is a private company that MM and his corrupt wife have got shares in. Just one way they plan to steal the election again.

    2. YOU have a TRUMP and judges who have DONE things to ensure BLACK in the southern state CAN’T vote because of THEIR ACTIONS

    1. Probably because he’s the best president we have had since god knows when, and he’s actually trying to do something, instead of destroying the U.S by opening the borders, and giving health care to illegals, maybe that’s why the MAJORITY of the U.S likes him, and we can all see the only reason the Dems are trying to impeach trump is because they can’t win an election fairly, nah couldn’t be that, must be some made up b.s.

    1. ​@G B I’m surprised that it’s not Estonian. I was also born in an ex-USSR state but my first language isn’t Russian. In fact, I don’t even speak it.

    1. Biggus Dickus Indeed Sire! Love the name! Monty Python WILL LIVE FOREVER: “Come back here, you coward!”

  2. I expect Spanky will give his “fireside chat” the same day he makes good on his promise to release his tax returns, unveil his great health-care plan, etc. etc..

    1. Nathan Hamberg
      What about the bills he doesn’t pay in the towns where he holds his rallies? And all the times he has filed bankruptcy? And profiting from his position by using his personal property? The list is long. Do some fact checking about his activities. He does all kinds of things that “look good” but ultimately are meaningless compared to the things he keeps deflecting from and projecting onto. Such common behavior for a pathological narcissist.

    2. @Nathan Hamberg : A businessman who never made a profit, who never paid his bills and who ended up not being able to borrow money from big banks because they said he never paid borrowed money back. He ended up borrowing from the Deutsche Bank who sold on his debt to the Russians.
      And as “just me” says he owes hundreds of thousands to rally cities all over the US. Must tot up to many millions.

    3. @Nathan Hamberg every president has shown their tax returns, it’s to show a financial paper trail, with no flagged income. Exactly, he was a “businessman”, so it should be easy for him …w-w-w-what about the dems!!!…when they’re elected, they should also show their finances.

    4. @Nathan Hamberg of course trump donated his earnings…hes sti making money off of his companies, comrade ….or is Saint trump just not making an income?…PS….presidential income his higher than 100G.

    1. You need to get the Democrats to read the constitution and the Bill of Rights, they seem to have forgotten it.
      Don’t let Warren do the reading, she’ll just say “it was obviously written by white men”

  3. The truth isn’t red or blue: Trump used U.S.
    military aid as a bargaining chip to pressure Ukraine into interfering
    in the 2020 elections, and he tried to cover it up. If an average person
    did this, they would go to jail.

    1. My prediction: Trump will win re-election..the impeachment of Trump will fail in the republican senate..it will be impossible to get 20 republican senators to go along with the democrats..
      The Sunday morning news talk shows will talk about Monday quarterbacking how the polls are wrong ..and F. Chuck Todd and George Stephanoupolis and Rachal Maddow still wants you to believe them..they are the ones to trust on their shows .
      Schiff will be a laughing stock in the house ..and in 2020 they will still say that Russia helped Trump get elected.

    1. There’s been some mention of 10 instances of obstruction of justice during the 2015 election cycle. Maybe the committee can look at the grand jury notes and see what they say about that. Inquiring minds want to know. Seems as though the Russian and Ukrainian energy sector has been handled in the same way as Trump attempted to arrange it in this instance. Makes sense, as Guiliani has been utilizing convicted felon Paul Manafort as a consultant.

    1. @President Prime Minister Admiral General Aladeen … exactly, reading to them is like reading to a classroom filled with toddlers. The sad thing is a toddles attention span is longer than those who voted for the liar &
      thief.

  4. Trump: “At some point I’m going to sit down and learn how to read, so that I can finally find out what all the excitement is about over reading.”

    1. Sadly it seems he chopped through his German inspirational icon’s “My Struggle” book… Maybe it was the Audio Book.

    2. Only thing that’ll be in his library are Police photo’s of him, his Grifter family including ALL the Immigrants, and ALL the Rethuglicans all arranged in a way that’ll lead to the Big Poster that says—QUID PRO QUO!!! Don’t TRY it No Mo!!!!

  5. Is there anyone in the Dump Administration, including family members, who isn’t a criminal, liar, or under investigation?

  6. I would very much like to see him read it live, and answer a few questions about it … Under oath … where his statements will go directly into evidence, his dissembling and deflection will be recorded for posterity, and his constant story changes and lies will have consequences … Not on Fox news, where apparently, his base and the repubs have decided that truth and consistency don’t matter as they spin more and faster, everyday, following him, as they drag the rest of us down that slippery slope with them.

    1. @Anne Rodgers nonetheless, we, as Americans are bound together. I think, you’d agree that his action, lack of demeanor, and sell out of our principles affects everyone … for the worse.

  7. The media needs to stop saying “quid pro quo” nobody takes it seriously as a crime, please say “EXTORTION” then people will say dang that’s a serious crime.

    1. @charles ayres
      ” The 25-efforts to usurp the election that followed”
      oh please, list those 25 efforts
      oh wait theres that uranium one crap again
      proving youre just another conspiracy nutter
      so don’t bother standing on your soapbox
      as I don’t listen to conspiracy nutters

    2. @55445 except he withheld those funds a month before the zielinski phone call zielinski didn’t even know about those funds being withheld until way after after the phone call so you’re wrong there was no quid pro quo also zielinski agreed that the corruption needed to be investigated

    1. Yup. He didn’t realize what he was doing and stepped in it deep. Politics is a dangerous sport and on the world stage it gets serious. I bet he longs for the days when he was an unknown multi-millionaire and his only concern was how much money he could accumulate in one lifetime. As ignorant as they come.

    2. He better or his new jailhouse boyfriend Bubba is gonna break him down like a shotgun and go ball’s deep………………..

  8. Eisenberg heard from two witnesses they were concerned abt Ukraine call, he then put the call in the server n told WH staff not to tell or talk abt the call…. His own behaviour with this call is a big part of the cover up going on, what other calls have been put illegally in this server…

  9. When trump says calls are “perfect” he means ” PERTFECT ONLY FOR HIM ” .. regardless of the rest of the world ! : (
