    The facts are true, may the presenters be persuasive.

    • Yes the facts are true and here are a few for you; there is 0 evidence tying to a crime or criminal behavior. Now here is an opinion, you have been duped yet again. Russia, Russia, Russia. Then when that didn’t work, how about Ukraine? Now they’re circling back to Russia. Is there ever a time when you think to yourself, self, there must be some evidence of an actual crime in here somewhere, I mean they are impeaching the president and have been trying to ever since he was elected… You have been duped and he will be exonerated and he will win in 2020. If your party wins the house again it will be – wash, rinse, repeat and he’ll win every time, all the while packing the courts with conservatives and getting 2 more SCOTUS picks… Oh well, have fun.

    • Really?
      Please lay out some facts & impeachable offenses.

    • @Kevin stevens Dilusional is supporting know criminals, then lying through your teeth to defend them.
      You my friend are a liar & a fool!

      I am sorry but you are just wrong about the DJT, his V.P. and lordy who knows who else committing crimes. Rudi & I. DJT both confessed on national television. They must’ve thought what they did wasn’t wrong but it was. The evidence is there for ALL to see. Why the GOP (who I used to respect and hold in high regard)has turned into the sycophants they have, I don’t understand. The things I’ve heard McConnell say has made my jaw drop to the floor.
      It doesn’t make it any easier for those who honestly believed in that man when those of us who have been against him for awhile now, to hear us calling you ugly, awful names. That has got to come to a screeching halt.
      Have a good night.

  2. Every word and action in this trial is being recorded for posterity.  Senate Republicans, be careful.  You will be examined for generations in the future for your actions and exposed for  your integrity.  Your support of Trump’s corruption will never go away.

    • That sword cuts both ways. History will be a very harsh critic of the deceit from democrats.

    • @peziki. Nope, they don’t give a shyte. In the words of the AG William Barr, “we all die”; meaning, after I’m dead why should anything bother me.

  3. Hakeem and the hold team did great.

      I started coughing this morning. I hakeemed up some nasty sheot

    • @Webfoot Trucker You sound terribly desperate.

    • Webfoot Trucker | January 24, 2020 at 9:02 AM | Reply

      @Fabi Grossi naw. I’m watching you liberal hacks having melt downs. Hes not my president. Hes a Russian. I mean German. I mean Chinese. I mean Ukrainian. No wait. Hes racist. No wait hes hes hes. He’s your president to. Fredo Cuomo hates it. Guess who? 🐧 Nadler. And ✏ neck

  4. One of two things is going to happen when the president’s defense start the atempting to make their defence one they will keep it really really short and try to act like that’s all they have to do or two they’ll spend so much time talking about other things and basically abusing people like the president does that by the time the American people are done watching their full on verbal assault if the senators vote for Trump they will end up being no better than he is and even if he doesn’t become impeached all those Republicans will have ranked there careers and will have turned their back on all of us.

    • He is already Impeached by the House,
      this is about removal from office.
      His Legacy as IMPOTUS is already written for all time.
      Hope he enjoys his
      Impeachment Legacy.

    • Or not. Facts matter and evidence is required. Accusation alone don’t hold up no matter how many times they are repeated.

    Rachel would have been an excellent presenter of evidence in a perfect world. She brings Facts with Receipts. A Historian as well.

  6. His put down of Seculow was classic

  7. Adam Schiffs is so articulate & his speech today moved me & I found myself choking up alongside him. You’d have to be completely heartless to have felt nothing if you witnessed him today.

    • Carlos Machado | January 24, 2020 at 2:54 PM | Reply

      @C. B. oh I’m sorry let me apologize for being a masculine man🤣🤣🤣 and who’s talking about gender I just stated the facts Adam Schiff is a poor excuse for a man and let’s not talk about Warriors losing legs cuz they’re are plenty of Republicans that have lost their limbs in service to this country and I’m sorry I’m not putting the correct punctuations on here for you I’m not trying to f****** writing paper

    • Baby Drumphf, His lies are very articulate. I guess I’m not “heartless” because I did feel something, I felt humored, and reading your text makes his nonsense even funnier. Thanks for the laugh!

    • C. B. The American economy is currently doing pretty well. It’s one of the benefits that come with enabling corporate America to expand and produce. But, with increased prosperity comes the inevitable increase in wealth disparity. It’s a valid concern! Still, a record 3.5% unemployment level implies that we’re in the midst of a very healthy job market. Opportunities abound. Employers are begging for workers – skilled and unskilled. Let’s feed that prosperity machine with skilled workers. But do we really want to increase taxes? You know how “taxing the wealthy” just ends up taxing everyone BUT the wealthy; that is, taxing all us regular peeps who have no tax shelters or offshore bank accounts.

  8. Trump: “Ask not what you can do for your country, ask what you can do for ME”

    That’s why he must be removed

    • Dawn Oceanside Dawn, I join in your derisive laughter. The GOP will throw any piece of propaganda out there because they are desperate. Just believe … Justice will prevail and the Dems will conquer with truth. 🇺🇸. UNITED WE STAND 🇺🇸

    • Dave Schultz keep trying little Schultzy. More incoherent ramblings from Schultzy the low iq tool. Back on shift little Davey?

      what did bawldy DON know and when did he stop knowing it

    • @celticman
      You’re not communicating well.

    • @Tammy Mintz
      Trump lifted the Child Cap on Welfare. Its kind of a major contributing factor to those “caravans”.

    Mr. Jeffries, thank you sir, great job

  10. Frances Arquette-Becher | January 24, 2020 at 5:09 AM | Reply

    What are these Rules? This is our Country and We The People! Our voices should BE Heard!!!!! We want Witnesses and Documents and for the Phone Transcript out of the secure file!!!!!!!!!

    • Frances Arquette-Becher Why? Democrats said “the evidence was overwhelming”. Did they lie?

    • Rod Allen and the delusional ramblings continue on and on and on. Laughable at best

    • @Korey Valentine now that Shep is gone, is there anything resembling actual News going on at Fox anymore? It’s all talking heads and talking points, very little journalism. Not saying CNN is that much better, but I’d recommend you look at BBC as an example of how journalism should work before you suggest that Fox is an actual news source.

    • @Rod Allen that is funny. If the evidence was overwhelming, you’d have an opinion on the evidence. Yet the McConnell stance on the evidence was to block what had already been gathered and block anything additional. Why block it if the evidence doesn’t matter? Republicans would be better off admitting that Trump did the very stupid thing he is accused of and instead argue (somehow) that it isn’t grounds for removal. Denying it happened – when Trump is in news footage telling Ukraine he wants an investigation of Biden – this denial is stupid and a waste of time. They are literally trying to convince themselves and the public not to believe what is seen or heard.

    • Ha ha… Your voice is heard 24/7… We The People are under total surveillance… and total control… It’s only the government that has freedom or privacy..

    “I cannot tell a lie” ~ George Washington. “I can only tell lies” ~ Donald the Chump and the entire racist party that supports him.

    Thank you to all the Democratic Managers, you all are doing a fantastic job.

    • This whole impeachment has cost tax payers millions, and whats trump doing he’s making billion to trillion dollar trade deals . Trump 2020

    • Jonathan Downes | January 24, 2020 at 6:35 PM | Reply

      Being impeached by a partisan democratic majority means nothing…Kind of like your “opinion”…LOL!!

    • @Walt Schmidt boy you must love listening to Impeached trump lie and misspeak, you must really like Impeached trump making a laughingstock of America. Impeached trump is obese and orange who is a sociopath with dementia. But Impeached trump loves the uneducated you must be giddy with that knowledge. you must have wet dreams knowing Impeached trump loves you lol.

  13. “what comes as a surprise so far? ”
    The answer should have been : ” i was surprised Idaho republican James Risch had fallen asleep on the job. ”
    Not “the republican senators are paying attention”


  14. And if you don’t know, now you know.

    “if you don’t know, now you know!” Jefferies is gangster

  16. Angelika Hemker | January 24, 2020 at 7:21 AM | Reply

    Interesting how he inadvertently said “renewal” before correcting himself with “removal”! Freudian slip if there ever was one.

  17. No fair trial,no wittinesses,no documents,=Cover up!

    • Any we have not even heard the defense’s argument yet. Talk about bias.

    • Agreed. How can the Republicans do this to Trump?! He’ll never be acquitted if there are no witnesses! You cannot presume innocence in the face of a vast amount of evidence to the contrary, they’ll need witnesses on the stand. If the Republicans render this a sham trial, then a large portion of the voting public will have doubts in mind when they hit the polls. If the Republicans would so harm their President, think what they’ll do to their constituents! Better vote in someone else..

  18. So proud of the house democrats. Schiff and Pelosi rock.

  19. ” Uh, and if you don’t know, now you know, you know ” Doin’ Biggie Proud !

  20. I feel as though Hakeem Jeffries with his Biggie moment rebutted the whiteness of the whitewashing process.
