Impeachment Trial A Test Of How Everyone Wants To Relate To This Substantively And Seriously | MSNBC

  1. At the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, Benjamin Franklin was asked a question as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation. In the notes of Dr. James McHenry, one of Maryland’s delegates to the Convention, a lady asked Dr. Franklin: “Well Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?”

    Benjamin Franklin replied: “A republic….if you can keep it.”

    Today, Trump, along with his enablers within the GOP, are telling us that we can no longer keep it.

    The Republican party has proven itself to be a clear threat to our national security, and to our democratic republic.
    The corruption we see in the Republican party today can only be defined as institutional depravity. It isn’t an occasional failure to uphold norms, but a consistent repudiation of them. It isn’t about dirty money so much as the pursuit and abuse of power—power as an end in itself, justifying almost any means.

    1. You got that right! If there is no conviction now, we are looking at very scary times approaching. Yes, it can get worse.

    2. There is ONLY ONE WAY to make America safe again and safeguard our democracy, to remove the root cause for this treason.

      We have 35% treasonous racist Confederate Evangelical MAGA/QAnon terrorists who are STILL supporting the orange traitor. It’s time to accept the reality that these traitors will NEVER become Americans with American values and norms. For them democracy is bad, dictator is good. Hence why they STILL wave their treasonous racist flag in our country and Capitol. NEVER AGAIN.

    3. The current GQP candidate is on trial , “no person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two-thirds of the Members present”. Seems easy enough, republican Senators vote to convict, or do not show up. Gives them cover, gets the job done. https://www.senate.gov/senators/contact Ask your Senator to either make a just vote, or stay home.

    1. Russiabots, ignore this comment, “no person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two-thirds of the Members present”. Seems easy enough, republican Senators vote to convict, or do not show up. Gives them cover, gets the job done. https://www.senate.gov/senators/contact Ask your Senator to either make a just vote, or stay home.

    3. @mark Evans there is evidence, multitudes of video’s and tweets from trump, all the insurrectionist who said they did it because that is what trump wanted

    4. @mark Evans Biden has a great plan for covid, healthcare, infrastructure, putting people back into departments that trump got rid of, more ambassadors for diplomacy, making amends with our allies, and that is just few things

  2. next election the message should be even clearer ,because getting beaten in a landslide was not loud enough for the GOPQ

    1. Attention span of a fruit fly and half the population has the IQ of a foot fungus.

      winner of next election will be kermit the frog.

    2. The next elections will be based on the Senates vote. , “no person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two-thirds of the Members present”. Seems easy enough, republican Senators vote to convict, or do not show up. Gives them cover, gets the job done. https://www.senate.gov/senators/contact Ask your Senator to either make a just vote, or stay home.

    1. No January exception, Frump is guilty, Senators uphold your oath and convict him, or stay home the day of the vote. Please contact your Senators and let them know you know what is just. https://www.senate.gov/senators/contact Those that are, or know influencers please feel free to copy, paste, share.

    2. But alas, “coward men” are those men who create a phantom menace of lies and deceit about fraud and voting irregularities and then coerce a delusional mob to violently protest for the phantom menace of lies and deceit that result in lost life then take no responsibility.

    1. @Real M its “battered wfe” syndrome…beaten senseless and a simple “but i love you” allows it to continue.

      but be assured,out here we are all wishing american values were once again raised above whats happening now,america was a beacon,but that beacon has turned into a huge danger sign.

      I tried watching independance day again,due to boredom,but it was just a litany of hypocrisy now,and unwatchable,and like battered wives issues,i have no idea if there is a fix other than removing the cancer that starts it.

    2. @Real M Not enough negative adjectives to apply to your 35 percent, how about freedom lovers compared to blue state dictators since virus. So your whole paragraph implies 35 percent have to be removed, sounds similar to Nazi Germany

    1. EXPEL PERMANENTLY THE TRUMPICAN SENATORS AND INVESTIGATE THEIR DARK $$$ !!!!!
      HOLD THE ENABLER COWARDS ACCOUNTABLE !!!
      #JUSTICEMATTERS !!!!!

  3. We know (most) republicans have no honour, no courage, no decency to stand up for the constitution and keep their oath of office. I just hope that there is a Washington DC AG who does what republicans are too afraid to do: hold trump accountable!

  4. My favorite 3 Ari, Nicole, Brian, great listening for the Impeachment on A Loser and Sucker who Dodged going to Vietnam poor American had to fight a war the politicians started.

  5. Wait a minute, how is that crook Trump going to be able to run for president from behind bars after all his criminal convictions which with any luck his sentences will run consecutively.

  6. And MSNBC needs to bring John Heilmann to the team full time & Nicole has to promise to always start off w/ a warm greeting to John, . Those two make a great team as well as being superb solo reporters.

  7. Nope! Trump’s second impeachment trial is actually about: How Future Americans want to live- free or enslaved! Hmm?

  8. I’m sure the Repugs would be calling for severe jail time, or the death penalty, as they rightfully did with the perpetrators of 9/11. As well as going after bin Ladin who incited that attack on our democracy

  9. This was a failed “Crystal Nacht” type of event. For some reason it seems like most Republicans can’t wait to get their own version of hitler. It looks as if they are the sons and daughters of confederates, and they still hate the Union.

  10. This trial needs to be held, if only for one reason – *To have on record, those Senators who dishonor their oath of office.*
