‘He’s Going Down’: Trump Impeachment Defense Shredded As Ukraine Still Missing Key Funding | MSNBC 1


MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber was first to reveal a new piece of evidence in the impeachment report that shreds one of Trump’s core impeachment defenses — that military money to Ukraine was “fully paid.” In a fact check, Melber reports how "Pentagon officials confirmed" to investigators that Ukraine still has not received "$35 million in security assistance." Former Federal Prosecutor John Flannery argues Trump is “going down,” and warns “Republicans who think they can vote to save this guy in the Senate” that Trump may “do something else.” Aired on 12/6/19.

  1. Morons Are Getting Arrested

    We should not be surprised by now that all of the money never reached Ukraine because Trump NEVER pays up.

  3. Don’t agree with the GOP’s core Trump’s defense? Wait 5 minutes. They’ll come up with a brand new absurd core defense.

    • *mumble mumble mumble* Hilary’s emails *mumble mumble mumble* Obama *mumble mumble mumble* fake news.
      Though realistically they’re likely going to argue that withholding the money isn’t a crime (on its own it isn’t) and ignore the fact that context matters. And I hate the fact that both of my Senators (Rick Scott and Marco Rubio) and my House Rep (Vern Buchanan) are going to vote against impeachment regardless of what evidence that comes up.

    • @Kathy Williams Typical Soviet (now Russian) intelligence tactics. (1) Lie even though everyone knows you’re lying. Make lying the new normal. (2) Accuse the opposition of doing what you intend to do or have already done.

    • The GOP is like an evil version of a 1972 rock concert. If 50,000 people are smoking pot, what can the cops do about it? If the entire GOP is committing obstruction of justice, what can our institutions do about it?

      Not comparing weed to obstruction. Weed should be legal. Mainly pointing out the “crowd crime” situation shielding the GOP from accountability.

    John Flannery, you rock!

  5. Trump has never fully paid anyone, not even hookers.

  6. Melania has that “victim” look….she’s not a victim.

    I so love Fannery. He always looks like he either has swagger, or a half-empty flask in his pocket.

    Yep Donald needed the $35m to remodel his home in his new Florida residence.

  9. Sounds like some kickbacks were paid out of the money…..maybe Rudy is in Ukraine now to secure his share?

  10. Yeah he never did pay up on contracts so where is the rest?

  11. Professional lair Despot Donnie is the ultimate product of ignorance and greed !

    John Flannery just makes so much sense.

  13. He keep the 35 million to pay for hookers, and pay off his bankcruptcies

    That was the kickback for the guys…. that’s the standard fee to intermediate for one of the amigos or all three. This is why those idiots want to go along with this cover up

    ‘Going down’ like a stinkin’ toilet load from the top floor of the Trump Tower.

    The “14%” missing is known as a Trump Tax.

  17. Thats because he thinks he is going to use it to build his wall

    • He ain’t used any of the billions he’s “appropriated” to build any damned wall, yet.
      All the upgrade work on existing fence was already budgeted and approved.

    • He might as well simply tweet that the wall is completed and take a victory lap. No one’s going to go down there to measure it, except for Anne Coulter and Stephen Miller maybe. His base will believe whatever he tweets. “It’s true! He IS the only one who can keep us safe!” 🤷🏻‍♀️

  18. Rudy is in Ukraine right now trying to use the last $35m for his asylum.

  19. Trump is destined to talk his way into Fort Leavensworth

  20. New trump talking point “democrats lie it wasn’t 35million, it was only $34,980,978” 🤦🏽‍♂️
