  1. I remember the quote “not intended to be a factual statement” although don’t remember the Republican that said it. At the time I couldn’t believe someone would say something like that, little did I know, that was the new norm.

  2. Actually, the house managers’ presentations were as clear as a crystal. As to the other side, Trump’s attorneys have a clear opportunity to make their case, although they are in deflect and avoidance mode. If the Trump team does not answer the specific charges and evidence, he should be found guilty, then all accomplices should also be prosecuted, and certain Senators should also be charged for breaking the impartiality clause in the oath. Aside, this should also meet Trump’s campaign promise of draining the swamp. 🤨

  3. Jay Sekulow looks like the rat Tony Soprano strangles while taking his daughter to college

  4. “Where in the Marine Handbook is the section on Code Red?” Maybe Sekulow is so stupid, he doesn’t understand the “quid pro quo” was explained rather than simply named. And it was more extortion than bribery.

  5. That is EXACTLY how the Republicans have wanted to set this up! Coverups and corruption!

  6. Jay Sekulow is speaking to Trump’s supporters, and we all know Trump says he likes the uneducated.

    • @oldrrocr where did you see bribery in the Articles.This panel are a crowd of hacks for the dems.Jay is a one of the best lawyers in the country.Every single witness testified there was no crime committed.The dems are cherry picking one sentence out of the entire testimony to fit their narrative.Only you clowns who watch CNN,all 200 of you are falling for the CNNDNC talking points.They’ve lied to you all for 3 yrs and you still are this stupid.

    • why do you have to go into the gutter?

    • Why is Sam’s Daughter calling us uneducated? If YOU had a brain you would see that this bs has been going for 3 years. Trump 2020.

    • @John Pelow Well said my friend.

  7. 0:57 one thing I’m not confused is the president needs to be removed pronto. Bring the witnesses and let’s see how innocent he really is.

  8. This lying has become a real problem! It’s becoming normalized.

      @Zoo Man you hate trump! But yet you have assured his reelection! Smart! 😂

    • @Conservative America
      That’s not what it said …it was inconclusive.
      Why because of the lack of cooperation and obstruction by trump and his allies..
      Also, if you’re so confident about what the muller report said, then release it on its entirety.

      Btw, I am not a leftist or right winger…I don’t know how you got that impression about me…

    He’s one of those jack leg lawyers who lies every time he opens his mouth.

  11. Action speak Trump doesn’t have to say “quit pro quo” and the lawyer and Linsey should recuse they are also deep in it.

  12. I was riveted listening to Schiff and couldn’t turn away. Now I hear about how bored everyone is.

  13. 4:22 Media should stop using terms like “launch investigate the Biden’s”, which misrepresent what is being done, and use “manufacture political investigations” instead. It describes the situation exactly as it is

  15. I would love to make a deal with someone else money, with one of them foreign leader and tell the police fu.k y’all your not talking to the ppl who know what I did SMFH

      08breezy08 Every criminal in court should be able to block all witnesses and proof because they know something that may or may not be of national security interest. Trump will be precedent for further law suits!

  16. The Senator makes a strong point when he lifts the issue beyond T and points out that at stake is functionality the office of Presidency in the future

    • I would suggest that what is at stake is the functionality of Congress. Congress has a long history of ceding power to the executive branch. If impeachment for presidential overreach and abuse of power is no longer viable, then there are no checks whatsoever on presidential power.

  17. We want the documents and witnesses so we have a full picture

  18. Moscow Mitch great tactic is bore the senators to death and hope they miss the facts and evidence.

  19. The GREATEST Danger to America’s Democracy is the Great America SHORT ATTENTION SPAN !

    • Money in politics is the actual worst problem. That’s exactly why these old white men are in charge despite all the lies. Some people seem to only get Fox Fact Free News and Sinclair Sucks Trump Radio in some states and that’s also a question of money

      Our military industrial complex is nothing short of ruthless and criminal they go unchecked I dont agree with alot of what they do our cia create enemies fund both sides sadom use to be an alli then when we were done with him and he was no longer needed we took him out creating a power structure and then it was bin laden he was cia asset funded by us then when he was no longer needed again we got rid of him then it was isis same deal it makes me sick

    • @Josie Fox Money in Politics is a BIG problem, True … I’m just not sure how you can police that sort of thing. My point was only that people need to try a bit harder to remember the lies they were told by BOTH Parties and to apply that memory when they Vote.

    • @Josie Fox so there isn’t any old white women that are corrupt? Here is a pro tip for ya. Corruption comes in all walks of life.

  20. “they don’t want to listen to the rest of the testimony.” “Nuff said. Repubs don’t want facts. Will not allow witnesses. This is not a fair trial. Some have already stated that they will not vote to impeach. Moscow Mitch has stated on camera that he is not an impartial juror. He should not be allowed a vote. Period. I guess it should not be surprising that they will swear an oath they have no intention of honoring. These people should not be deciding what they’re having for breakfast let alone the President’s guilt or innocence and how this country should be run.
