    or did someone else?


  3. If Moscow Mitch takes the oath to be an impartial juror in the impeachment trial in the Senate and holds a travesty of a trial can he not be impeached for lying to Congress and violating his oath?

    • @Carriemchardy Carrie well amen for that.

    • I think that’s exactly what Adam schiff did. Said he didn’t know who the whistleblower was and had never talked to him but had a meeting with him

    • I certainly hope he will be held accountable to the letter of the law!

      @Willy S They are all breaking their oath on TV, but its not technically broken/perjury until they actually take the oath to uphold the constitution and say that they will be unbiased jurors. Then they can all be dealt with legally.

    • @Carriemchardy Carrie , McConnell and Graham stated their intent to be biased, in other words to break their oath, on national TV, which would make it considerably easier to prove perjury once they take the oath.

  4. The impeachment should be reopened and more articles added. America is failing!!!


  6. I love Neal Katyal

  7. Awesome news!

  8. Count on “The Sasquatch Moscow Mitch McConnell” actively resist or refuse to comply with Oath of office … that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, … 🙄

    • Dittzx Troll – Moscow Days are stale and over used! Let get to UKRAINE Biden Qid Pro JoE
      Pelosi Not Above the Law! and Archangel Mitch is the Boss in the Senate!
      Aid released within deadline soon as Ukrainian Parliament put up Anti Corruption measures. No Free Lunch for Ukraine!
      Let’s Not forget “us” “Our Country” “call AG”
      Corruption Get TO Biden(s) one of the causes for this whole charade!
      Trump 2020 MAGA to KAG!

  9. The republicans senators are violating their oath of office. Their loyalties are to the Constitution and not the Orange Babyman! The American government is failing.

  10. No more rocks to hide behind..😂 You gone testify boy!

  11. Trump: “I did nothing wrong, and I have nothing to hide. And to prove it, I am going to hide everything.”

    John Bolton is just a private citizen. If he refuses a subpoena he should be in prison.

    • Same with Joe and hunter

    • @Margaret Nicol the impeachment will never get to the Senate because then the Bidens would have to testify.

    • @Mark Haddox – The Bidens have no direct evidence to offer regarding what Trump did. The impeachment is regarding Trump’s improperly fulfilling his duties as president within the confines of the American Constitution. Hunter Biden is a private citizen and always has been one. His father and our former Vice-president served with honor and distinction. Trump could just as easily have thrown your name out there. That’s what he does. Distraction and deflection are important keys to keeping him from ever being held accountable.

  13. Maybe the senate trial won’t be a sham! Witnesses!

    Now we’re talking !

  15. Moscow Mitch and the Stalingrad 51 are trying to undermine American Freedom.

  16. Excellent news!

  17. I have a feeling Pelosi is gonna hang right on to those articles for a bit. The yogurt keeps getting deeper for McTurtle.

  18. Ah, but he still has a mustache to hide behind 🤮

  19. He’s impeached already. Time to move on.

  20. I love listening to Neal. So intelligent.
