  1. If Trump has nothing to hide, he would be happy to let EVERYONE testify. The more he obstructs, the more he looks guilty.

    • @Crystal Giddens The House has taken on the role of Special Prosecutor, because corrupt AG Barr’s Department of Justice refused to do its job. That would have involved investigations out of the public eye, grand jury summonses, and so on. You are always full of crap.

      @Amnon Meyers the house’s role is outlined in the constitution. the “special prosecutor” has been manufactured/a contrivance. the house’s role is that of prosecutor. the prosecutor must first decide if the allegation(s) are credible (often merely a sworn affidavit will accomplish this). Once the allegation is made, the House does the exact same thing as a prosecutor would do by first (determining if the allegation(s) are credible). The House does this with a simple majority vote to impeach or not. It really is that simple but you have been fooled so I understand that you do not understand.

      @Amnon Meyers of course if the house does decide to impeach that is when they they proceed to develop their case to present to the court…i.e. investigate in order to produce evidence for the court. at this point the defendant has legal rights such as the right to remain silent, the right to legal representation, the right to review evidence collected by the prosecutor and the right to confront the accuser. when did all of this become new to supposedly red blooded Americans? rights. aka due process? you heard of rights? no?

  2. This is the best the Republicans can do. How sad.

    • Stop arguing, we’re being played. See for yourself.

    • I don’t know what hearing you were watching the Democrats look stupid the two witness is nothing but hearsay did he actually listen to the phone call the Democrats lost this round but you can think what you want you’re in denial

    • Walt Schmidt that’s not true hearsay is admissible in some courts. Also those directly indicated in he hearsay is refusing to comply with subpoenas where you think this is legit or not they are lawful and thus are obstructing the law at the direction of the president.

    • Listen up I’m only going to say this seven times did you see President Trump commit any crime no. LOL is this the best of Democrats can do another dud

    • @Rod Allen IGNORANT, much?

    Republicans are morons.
    Racists usually are.

    • @Jeffrey Hagelin You need medication.

    • Jeffrey Hagelin | November 20, 2019 at 6:35 PM | Reply

      @Donnie Darko
      No, I’m fine l don’t need medication or drugs of any kind.
      Even a qualified doctor knows better than to suggest medical advice over a tweeter link.
      But since you’re obviously a dillusioal drumpf cultist, as a group not known for credibility, society must make amends.

  5. If you want firsthand info then why don’t the Republicans call Mulvaney and Giuliani to be witnesses. Their names are all throughout this Conspiracy.

    Watching the end come to the Trump Crime Family Syndicate is a Great joy.

    • If that is what you believe you are really lost as the getting rid of the crime families. He already got rid of Bush Sr., McCain, Cummings, and Pelosi’s brother along with many more. If you didn’t know that then are way behind already. During slavery days only Dems owned slaves, not one Republican, the records have been checked. Dems also started the KKK, Jim Crow Laws and voted in Congress against every law to let blacks vote or to have any new freedoms and get ahead. It was the Republicans that made those laws to give blacks freedoms. The Dems want the black vote then want you to get lost until next election If you want the truth then look up videos by Candace Owens, she will give you the truth. If she ever runs to be Pres., I will vote for her.

    • @Karl Johan Haarberg id like to hear about it. schiff promised it several times but it never materialized. msnbc viewers are very misinformed. its a poor news organization.

    • not just the end of don the con and his band of crooks, the whole republican party should suffer badly for the current behavior .

    • No it’s not a joy for anyone to think the President is a criminal. We’re being played. See for yourself

    Sad day for the republican party. And on top of that jim Jordan got clowned by being told to bring Donald trump to the inpeachment hearings. As a witness

      @Shon Diego
      That guy was Peter Welch. I think he’s from Vermont.


    • Just look at the bad things Trump does

      @Shon Diego – good comment only it’s etc. not ect. Not sure why I keep seeing so many people making this error – anyway, hope my correction is helpful – it is mean’t in good faith.

    • honeychurchgipsy6 | November 17, 2019 at 8:12 AM | Reply

      @gurujr – I think you have a point. I doubt Trump knows what the truth is. He has a personality disorder that includes being a compulsive liar – it would be sad except for the damage he’s doing. Also, I, as a British person, cannot understand why people think he’s capable of running a country – it baffles me. We have Boris Johnson who is more like Trump than many realise, but at least he is reasonably intelligent and understands politics (maybe that’s worse – not sure – lol!!)

    Soldiers on the frontlines: ” we need ammo and anti tank weapons, we’re pinned down , help ”

    Trump : “ok, i have all the ammo you need , and missiles, but can you do me a favor first ?”

    • Kathleen Mitchell | November 14, 2019 at 1:25 PM | Reply

      Sadly, Daniel, that’s pretty much how it went. I wish the Democrats would push home a little more that if not released by the 30th of September 2019 that the Ukrainians would lose that aid. 9/30/19 would be the year end date for fiscal 2019.

      Trump has blood on his hand he’ll never be able to wash off. Take that, germophobe.
      I hope his son-in-law is exposed next for his hand (bloody hands run in that family) in Kashoggi’s murder. That’s why Erdogan was here yesterday. To assure DJT he won’t blackmail him and thanks for handing over Syria.

    • Kathleen Mitchell | November 14, 2019 at 5:00 PM | Reply

      @Kate Hillenbrand Jared Kushner is not only suspected of involvement in Jamal Khashoggi’s murder but gave the green light to the Saudi Crown Prince. And that Erdogan has it all on tape. Just saying.

    • Rod Allen That’s literally what happened and the words are only slightly changed. Zelensky asked to buy Javelins and the very next thing Trump did was ask for a favor. It’s obvious a response to his request. What’s made up?

    “The presidents behavior is not as outlandish as it could be…is that correct Ambassador Taylor?”

    Sweet mother of God…the republican party is dirty to the core now.

    • @Larry Lucas yes I know…just wondering😇😇😇

    • @lmao6t Well as I was told at a bible study Judas bought a piece of property with it and to this day the land is barren.

    • @REAL BLACKS KNOW THE TRUTH lmao Are you aware of the phonce call and texts to/from Ambassador Snderland? IF SO, they you also “know” that the ambassador and at least 2 other underlings in the State Department…who HEARD the phone call thought/think that it was not “100% perfect”. Trump and Co. are preventing over a dozen “witnesses” from testifying….and last I read/heard, the phone call….which IS available…also not released to Congress….nor is the UN-redacted transcript.

    • @Jim Yarbrough ….and McConnell….through today, and Paul Ryan, through January 2019….just 10 months ago, had full power to seek committee investigations. Gee whizzums, I wonder WHY these God-fearing Republicans never “stepped up” and sought to investigate the “National Security emergency” that Trump has been carrying on about/tweeting about since the day he was CAUGHT by the whistleblower. God only knows how many OTHER situations remain unreported…of similar or greater calibre.

    • only if they had dressed as the three amigos during negotiation would it have been more outlandish …. I think my response would not have been as calm

    I can only imagine how Fox News is twisting this hearing. I really don’t wanna go check cus the stupidity is gonna hurt my brain 😂

  11. What a ridiculous argument, “it was bad but it could have been worst!” Shame on you republicans !

  12. If Republicans were smart, they would let the chief lemming go over the cliff alone.

  13. Watching Jim Jordan get laughed at like he was on a live Comedy Central roast was one of the most satisfying things I’ve seen in a while.

    “Outlandish”? More like Unconstitutional

  15. Trump’s ego won’t let him resign and even at this point he must realize he will be recorded in history as one of the most corrupt Presidents ever to “SERVE” and I use that word loosely.

  16. “There are worse crimes”. The new Republican slogan for 2020.

    Lindsey Graham should be excluded from Senate jury duty in impeachment. He is willfully ignorant and prejudiced greatly. He is ignoring his Oath of Office. He should be impeached…

    You can’t trust Graham. One day he says “hearsay” and the next he won’t even do his job!

  18. Trump is guilty as charged. He should be dragged out of the White House in handcuffs.

  19. Their line of defense is literally “well it’s not THAT BAD, right?”

    • @Jimmy Jazz judging someone off of their name alone instead of the content shows how ignorant you are.. last i checked, the president sets foreign policy, not someone with a “career in national security.” 😆.. They can advise, but president has the end word. Thats the problem here, these ambassadors think they know better but that IS NOT their job! Theyre trying to continue the status quo, and Trump was elected precisely because Americans didnt appove of the status quo. Ambassadors serve at the pleasure of the president and clearly the fired ambassador was not doing that.
      This is too easy lol.. knowledge is your friend.. good luck.

    • @Jimmy Jazz go ahead and believe the democrats who flat out said “hearsay evidence is better than direct evidence.” 🤣🤣🤣

    • @james T You are a blind fool and you richly deserve all the fruits of your stupidity. Waiting for trump to testify. Surely he can tell us about how innocent he is under oath. At least he could have his people lie for him. Not one area of Chinese tech hasn’t advanced rapidly in the last ten years. Ignorance really is bliss isn’t it? Edit: Another very close associate of the dear leader goes to prison. What’s it gonna take for you to see the light? A backhoe to dig your head out and surgery to remove your eyelids?

    • @Jimmy Jazz
      Educate yourself please.. you dont have to believe glenn beck, if you scroll down and click on links it has all the articles and documents to prove it. Theres ALWAYS 2 sides to an arguement and youve only heard 1 from MSM.

  20. This is like house of cards with humour, Taylor was maginificent.
