'High Crimes': See The Moment Trump Officially Gets Put On Trial | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC


  1. Whats the point of the oath if McConnell and the other republicans have already said that they will break their oath to be impartial jurors?

  2. Let’s just hope that justice, wherever the dice may land, is done….

    Congress… Senators, please side with truth and democracy above party, regardless of party impact.

    Stand up and be counted

    1. They absolutely will not. Still, if we don’t hold on to the *idea* of justice and continue to fight for it, all is lost.

  3. They will lie like a dog on a rug to god and it want bother them one bit to save Trump and hurt themselves

  4. Isn’t it the Law if a Senator breaks their oath.. Can’t they be removed and arrested off the floor???I think AND hope so because our SAFETY is at RISK..!!???

  5. Let’s be very clear, the fact that Trump and republicans in the Senate are afraid of introducing witnesses and evidence in the trial is because they know that Trump is guilty of bribery and obstruction of justice. And the majority of Americans know it too. Not only is Trump on trial, but republicans in the Senate are also on trial. And the American people will be watching.

  6. Trump: “I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help me Putin….if you’re listening.”

  7. mmmmmmmm my god I have been forced to pleasure myself to this all day and I am getting blisters.

    “On pain of imprisonment”


  8. Woe be to those senators who despise God by breaking their solemn oaths before Him. He may suffer fools but I doubt if He will hypocrites

    1. trumps are unfit for the town trash collector. no trump has ever given any service to any country in which they reside
