  1. The reality is that he does control the (republican) senate. McConnell is his pet turtle

    • Moscow mitch controls the Senate and has been working against the democratic party and we the people for decades! He is the really dangerous evil ninja turtle in the Republican party, loyal to Vlad and the greedy greenbacks! 🤑🤑🤑

    • @Raging Monk Thank you for sharing the facts! 🤗

    • James Dunn I like Keebler Elf cookies but Moscow Mitch’s fake chocolate cookies, no thanks. 💩

      Dave Ponsford I already have above, its called the Clinton Impeachment trial. Democrats would and have done the exact same thing if one of theirs is president.

      If what you say is true, then Trump doesn’t control the senate republicans either. You can’t say “core values” one way and then the other side of being partisan when one side is as close to unanimous as the other.

    Putin controls Trump and the GOP.

    He has so far, and through him, Putin also does.

    And this is coming from a former Republican.

  5. When russia hacked the servers they must have found some juicy info onn the GoP because no Republican has been working for the American people since then

  6. The people’s chamber will impeach this president. The state’s chamber will give him free rein to construct the dictatorship of his impulsive and destructive whims. May the people vote in sufficient numbers this November to allow our republic to heal and return to our constitutional foundations.

  7. What does 45 have on them! 45 has already told them ” I’ll do what I want” these Senators need to recuse them self or leave office.

    The majority Republi-con Senate won’t impeach him, bc they know if he goes down, he’ll take them with him.

    • @djondjon yeah but they can’t put that respect in their bank accounts an that’s obviously all that matters to this scum

    • Yes but the people who feel that way are not the ones who elected republicans in the first place.

    • Don’t they know more bad news is going to come out on the most corrupt president ever ? The republicans should be running from trump.

  9. He’s ruining in fear. Trump scared to go to prison in his old age. He has done more then enough crimes already. He scratch and broke the record.

  10. Trump DOES CONTROL THE SENATE because Senate R’s have ZERO SPINE. I say tar and feathers for all of em!

      Trump does not control the Voice of the People. We must call the offices of our reps, “reps,” and the Committee Chairs to convey our support for impeachment and removal. We can make the Voice of the People relentless by sheer number by asking our friends and families to do the same. US Senate 202-224-3121. US House 202-225 3121. This is what moves these reps. It does work.*
      *The first time the Rs attempted to pass their Anti Healthcare Bill, the objections of the People were so strong, the Congressional phone system crashed and the Rs refused to show up for the vote. The People showed up in reps’ offices, in DC and at home, in protests on the streets and in town halls.

  11. really sad to see a coequal branch give away its ability to govern to a madman, I know some staunch republicans here at home who are disgusted with the party and have either decided to go democrat or independent over mcconnels weak leadership.

      I really think the best thing for genuine principled constitutional conservatives would be to punish the Trump-Republican party in 2020. Don’t sit it out. Defeat Trump himself, no matter who the Dem nominee is, and also knock out as many of his cowardly enablers in Congress as possible.

      Let it be undeniable that Trumpism is for losers. Maybe then a serious and patriotic conservative party can be reconstituted.

    • And they will vote for trump or not vote at all in 2020. As putin would want…..

  12. Thanks to the illegal, shameless and craven attitudes of these Republican Senators who act like he gave them life…he technically can control the Senate. It’s abhorrent, and its enough to make any sane person vomit, to see how this President has corrupted the balance of power between the Executive and Legislative Branch. This is why it is so important that voters this coming year elect Senators who can effective display much needed independence from this corrupt President and his allies. Even if Trump wins a second term, we need a Congress controlled by the Democrats in both the House and the Senate so Congress can finally be a check on the executive branch. Ideally, it would be moderate Republicans who would be willing to do bipartisan work, but I think its clear that there are no moderates in the Senate, only stooges for the Trump loyalists. This is seen by the brazen acknowledgement by these corrupt leaders that they will not even give lip service to the requirement that they be impartial jurors in an impeachment trial. They have sold themselves and this country for power and it’s up to *us* to check that power and drive them from office. If we stay complacent and just complain on YT and social media and don’t do anything, it will stay the same and get worse if Trump gets reelected and the Republicans keep control of the Senate. Vote Democrat this year and help ensure a proper separation of Powers again!

  13. Mitch & Lindsey sound like what I imagine prostitutes say. Then get paid or stabbed in the back.

    McConnell is courrpt wicked misleading covering up own interest not keeping with government vows the way Jesus Christ established and told the father’s to do

  15. Julio Gonzalez | December 18, 2019 at 8:35 AM | Reply

    Mitch McConnell needs to let the witnesses come forward to testify! The witnesses need to be cross examined!

  16. Are u kidding he thinks he controls Amercia by himself?

    This is the most CORRUPT Senate in US History. “WE THE PEOPLE” will have the last laugh in November 2020..MARK MY WORDS!

    The Republican Party is DEAD because they have sold their souls to Satan.

  18. Moscow Mitch MUST GO!!!!

  19. I’m starting to understand WHY tarring and feathering was soooo satisfying for the Founding Fathers.

  20. Trump: I AM THE SENATE

    Everybody: You need a reality check badly
