    It’s a somber mood at CNN

    • @Bob Reicher glad to know glad to see all of Obama’s screwups being fixed especially obumer care worst in history writing Obama out of history is the best part.

    • @David Daniels see you republicans keep using this excuse of electoral collage as a smoke screen that the true facts are the majority of people voted for hillary clinton…in any other country with a free democracy ie first past the post Clinton would have won by a landslide ….boy that’s gotta hurt

    • @Tony Thomas your boy Biden was happy too..

    • @2000bcanning true.. Biden was happy with this vote..

    • Well John , firstly , more than half the world already knows and or understands the ramification of whats going on. Hard to believe , but people outside the good ole usa actually pay attention , and for the most part have critical thinking instead of political bias glasses to look thru. Asking a foreign leader , diplomat , or other such person to investigate your potential adversary in a future election is stated as an abuse of power. Its really that simple in this regard. Read your constitution , its all spelled out in english

  4. I went to bed already knowing this outcome.

  5. Bono said, “The world needs more Canada.”

    • No one takes Canada seriously.

    • Nope , just love responding to idiots , who have no clue , and probably don’t care , just love to see or hear there ignorant voice out there. I will await the usual derogatory response one gets from said individual

      @dave redford I love slamming on the pompous and arrogant such as yourself. It’s so easy.

    • And , you think 5 year old responses are slamming me?…lol. ok How about putting on your big boy pants and pony up to a real conversation , or is that just not something you can do?

  6. Quid pro quo and cover up.
    Abraham Lincoln — ‘Don’t criticize them ; they are just what we would be under similar circumstances.’

  7. A SHOW TRIAL to protect the cabal involved in this attack on democracy.

    • What rules did the Senate break?

    • @WasatchMan every trial has had witnesses, it’s not a rule if they vote it out but it’s apparent they don’t care about the truth. If he was truly innocent, witnesses would have proved it. The fact that they voted against it is proof they know it’s true and they just want to sweep it under the rug. Also, why is Trump’s lawyers paying off various republican senators? That’s gotta be a rule broken, isn’t it? Or is it only a rule if Democrats did it?

    • @Wade You do know that both sides refused each others witnesses and that why we don’t have any, right? Or do you just watch Fake News that tells you only Republicans rejected witnesses?

    • @WasatchMan lmao can you breath in your bubble? Oh right you guys had a big hard on to hear from Hunter Biden, because he’s a for sure a relevant witness… But not John Bolton! He’s a leftist, apparently…?

    • @WasatchMan why did Trump’s lawyers pay off republican senators, isn’t that a conflict of interest??? Don’t change the subject I know you are too afraid to engage

  8. This is also laughable!

  9. Republicans only see money,,,
    Thy have no dignity
    Thy sold the DEMOCRACY

  10. To my point of view, Chief Justice was so impartial that he choose not to defend the Constitution. To me, he acted as a master of ceremony but was always ready to approve meals time. Period.

  11. now i can kill someone TRUMP THINKS

  12. No one is above the law…unless your a rich white man

  13. 51 traitors to THE PEOPLE. Hope their consciences allow them to sleep from now on.

    It was a Sham ..GOP will go down hill this Nov🤷‍♀️🗳

  16. House Manager Hakeem Jeffries: It was okay for Hillary to engage in Russian interference, because she paid for it.

  17. CNN is bleeding, CNN is in grieving, where is Fredo tonight

    The whole impeachment was a sham

  19. You guys do know that even if they had called witnesses and received all the documents the GOP was still going to acquit Trump. From the moment the impeachment process began Trump’s acquittal was all but guaranteed
