    16 days until the trailer trash is removed from the white house.

    Just imagine the calls he probably made to other States that didn’t get recorded.

  3. I think that any senator who votes for this coup attempt should be tried for treason .

    • My senator in Indiana is one of them. It’s disgusting and embarrassing.

    • @Barry Walls To commit treason you don’t have to complete the act. Treason is treason whether you manage to pull the coup off or just plan the crime. Once it moves out of talk and into action it’s too late.

    • @Barry Walls Sadly, I think if someone is still supporting Trump at this stage, nothing is going to change their minds and so they’ll support these senators.

    • @NiNi J This the great worry. The US has had a “tread lightly” policy regarding ex presidents and vice presidents and, while I think it’s been taken too far in many cases, I do understand it. It’s to prevent setting a precedent and opening a door to politically based, revenge or suppression trials.
      This policy really doesn’t apply in the case of Trump where he’s been so overtly and proudly, blatantly corrupt and posed such a serious threat to democracy in the US that action will have to be taken or else, by treading lightly regarding such seriously dangerous behaviour, a precedent is set that allows this sort of behaviour to happen in the future.
      It really does boil down to setting a precedent for accountability and protection of democratic process or a precedent for the allowing of corruption and the undermining of the US’s democracy.

    • It’s sedition.

  4. Just took a screen shot of “the twelve” to make sure I never vote for any of them ever.

  5. He Clearly Made More Calls like That To ‘OTHERS’

  6. The senators cannot longer be trusted. They have to resign!

    • @Jim Christiansen Well, the great thing about a free country is that we can agree to disagree on the punishment for the crimes of Trump & co.

    • @Nathan Oswalt There is no “overwhelming evidence” of fraud in the 2020 elections. There IS an overwhelming amount of specious claims masquerading as ‘proof’ Trump won. He did not win. Conspiracy theories are not evidence, which is why ALL the judges threw the cases out that sought to overturn election results.

    • Watch “Robnee44 YouTube Channel- FOLLOW 4 FOLLOW” on

    • @White Egret Security agree shows the caliber of half the Republican party some are cutting their own throats

    • @The Teacher i was about to post that as well Trump has committed a criminal act with his phone call and the mob who are supporting him are doing that exactly and the ones who are lawyer should be disbarred

  7. Well who trying to steal the election now they need to remove him now or impeach him throw some of those GOP senators in for good measure.

    Remember the twelve Senators…make sure the spelling is correct…

  9. He sounds like a damaged person because he is a damaged person.

  10. Micheal Cohen said they’ll never be a peaceful transfer of power a year ago. He knows the devil well.

  11. The kicker is he hasn’t been held accountable, ever. An absolute T-R-A-I-T-O-R and disgrace to humanity.

    Vote blue in Georgia let’s end trumpism for ever

  13. I hope everyone of these Senators is voted out of office at their next election. Furthermore, I hope the history books remember them for what they are, traitors to their country.

  14. EVERY single one of these traitors needs to be charged with sedition and face the consequences of their actions.

  15. Our Nation has become the World’s laughing stock. We have no legs to stand on and lecture authoritarians and non democratic Nations…..SAD😔

      America finally sees what the whole world has ever seen …

    • We are not laughing, we are appalled and many countries are ready to shut you out not least of because your pandemic response.

    • it might have something to do with electing a mentally ill person 😀

      @Raymond Tay – For most Americans and the right (non-Republican, non-war) leaders, yes, I think most are on board with this. What the majority of Americans want at this point is a better, safer world for all, a healthier climate and Earth for everyone to inhabit, to stop the ceaseless neverending murder of innocents around the world, and to go forward peacefully together.

    Quit making a mental illness defense for Trump. Despite his actions, he knows right from wrong. He just choses to do wrong.

  17. We will always remember those people who tried to overthrow democracy..

  18. AccomplishmentMissed | January 4, 2021 at 8:27 PM | Reply

    They are not “defending” the coup, they are perpetrating it

  19. Belky Hernandez | January 4, 2021 at 8:35 PM | Reply

    I hope more Republicans stand up to this attempt at a dictatorship.

  20. They lied and covered up for him for all his lies republicans don’t care he should have been impeached they failed America and the American people
