  1. She’s just saying that for her voters, in reality she won’t disappoint McConnell.

  2. Funny how media falls for these tricks.
    Mitch told her and others that are up for reelection to publicly stand up to him. If mitch already knows he has the votes. This allows for those up for reelection to say , well I took the high road even if they vote on behalf of Trump.
    Basically it helps the republicans to give the appearance of being rational, while never intending to waver in the first place.

    • @nanda erdhani Stop listening to the news, they are making you look foolish. There is no evidence and a specific law has not be listed as being broken. Abuse of Power and obstruction have to be backed up with actual evidence. The whole start of this was from a phone call that was quickly debunked when the transcripts were released. Not one witness presented evidence.

    • @Paul. How can they present evidence when Trump keeps blocking it? He has hidden evidence in a secret server that should not be there. The man is evil, disgusting and corrupt.

    • murkowski is not up for re-election

  3. Mitch is in trumps pocket. The whole thing is fixed.

    • gottaloveit gottaloveit ….are you a russian troll??

      Yep and I have all the corrupt Dems working for me! Russia LMAO! They had nothing to do with the election however they did for Hildabeast! Sore loser wait until President Trump wins2020 2024 2028 oh yea! Dems are evil doers. 👍👍👍👍🤪😜🤮

    • gottaloveit gottaloveit popping tents? Another weak mind. Why don’t you put the crack pipe down and read a book. Educate yourself.

    • Billy Cole II really? Lol

  4. Empty words as usual. She just seeking attention. When it comes to voting, she always goes with the majority. None of them has a backbone.

    • At least she’s intelligent enough to play along. Btw two spaces after a punctuation are considered not correct since typewriters went out of fashion and three are definitely wrong.

    • Just like the vote for Kavanaugh. Empty words. . Prove it! Walk your talk.

    • all brainwashed by “the Family – Netflix”. We’re in the midst of a Dictatorship (Global)

      maybe not, republicans and democrats voted together in senate to block trump if trump impulsively (instructed by putin) pulls out of nato,

    • Justice have you ever been outside the states? Dumb comment, no dictators here. Only a bunch of sheep

  5. Every American should be concerned over Moscow Mitch admitting that he will not honor the oath that every Senator will have to take as impartial participants in the Senate trial. Moscow Mitch openly declared that he will NOT be impartial. He’s violating his oath even before he takes it.

    It will not be a legitimate trial without witnesses and evidence.  Republicans refusal to allow witnesses and evidence is what’s known as a COVER-UP.
    Trump and republicans in the Senate wouldn’t have a problem with Bolton, Rudy, Mulvaney,  or John Eisenberg testifying if Trump was actually innocent. The problem is he’s not innocent. He’s guilty as charged, and they know it.

    When Lt.Col Vindman twice told a superior of his concerns about Trump’s efforts to force  Ukraine for the investigation in exchange for military aid, the White House lawyer John Eisenberg had the full transcript of Trump’s phone call moved to the highly classified White House server, which is usually reserved for code-word level intelligence but not transcripts of diplomatic discussions. Why would the full transcript of Trump’s so called “perfect” phone call be hidden? If he did nothing wrong, releasing the full transcript should exonerate him of any wrong doing.

    The only logical conclusion is that Trump is guilty, and he knows that releasing the full transcript, and allowing Mulvaney, Bolton and others to testify under oath would be his undoing. Trump knows that after seeing what happened to Manafort, Cohen  and Stone, that no one else is going to risk going to prison for his crimes.

    Trump’s own National Security Adviser, John Bolton quit over Trump’s scheme to bribe Ukraine.

    JULY 10
    At the Trump International Hotel in Washington, Andriy Yermak, a top adviser to Mr. Zelensky, asks Mr. Volker to connect him to Giuliani. The two men later meet in Madrid.

    At a White House meeting later that day in Bolton’s office, two Ukrainian officials press for an Oval Office meeting between Trump and Mr. Zelensky. Sondland blurts out that Mick Mulvaney, the acting White House chief of staff, promised that Mr. Zelensky would be invited if Ukraine announces “investigations.”

    Bolton immediately halts the meeting. At a follow-up meeting, Sondland again presses the Ukrainians to announce investigations, this time specifying Burisma and the 2016 election as targets. Fiona Hill, one of Bolton’s top deputies, calls that session to a halt.

    She and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, her subordinate, report the meetings to John Eisenberg, the chief legal adviser to the National Security Council. Bolton tells Ms. Hill to deliver a message from him: “I am not part of whatever drug deal Sondland and Mulvaney are cooking up.”

    The fact that Trump refuses to allow these people to testify is an admission of guilt.

  6. My opinion: I think the same rules should apply as a regular jury. the jurors who are out spoken about how they are going to vote should be excused from being a juror.

    • CrniWuk So, according to you, the senators would be neutral if they voted to impeach Trump and allow you more witnesses, after the 21 witnesses you already had in the house???

    • @Andy C Uh? Wait what. I had to re-read my own comment again just to check if I didn’t make a mistake here. I am not sure from where you get the idea from that I think Republicans have to vote for impeachment to be neutral. The impeachment is over by the way, that happend in the House. Trump IS impeached. The third President in the history of the United States. Now they have to decide in the Senate if they also remove him from office. Just for the record, I want them to have a trial where they review the evidence and then make a neutral decision here. Just as how their oath commands it from them. The Senate is now a Jury in this matter! Do you want a Jury to be partial or neutral?

      What I am talking about is that Republicans already refuse to be neutral before the trial even started. Particularly McConnell. How is this not disturbing news for you? People that have been voted in to to office to uphold an oath already say before it’s even starting that they won’t uphold it. Here is the thing. Senators do not serve the president. He is NOT a King. They have to serve their oath.

      I want Trump to have a fair and impartial trial in the Senate, with witnesses and defence. So that people actually have a chance to make up their mind and make informed decisions. You don’t?

    • CrniWuk Nothing about this has been fair or impartial. Pelosi said last March that impeachment is so divisive that there needs to be overwhelming and compelling evidence, and it needs to be bipartisan. Neither one of those requirements were met and this is the 7th attempt by the democrats to impeach the president. The first attempt was two weeks after Trump was elected when he said the NFL players shouldn’t kneel for the national anthem. All of this is an attempt by the corrupt Democratic Party to overturn the 2016 election. I’m so sickened by the Democratic Party I get upset every time I talk about it. I’ll never vote democrat again in my life …

  7. And she will vote with the rest of the, and them act like she didn’t know anything just like the last time.time to vote out the retardican and impeach dirty trump again

  8. “I feel a disturbance in our flawed Senate” – Senator Palpatine.
    I’m sure things will get better when Jar Jar Binks hands over emergency powers.

    I was disturbed by Feinstein’s face when she “didn’t threaten” Murkowski during the Kavanaugh debacle.

    Another unconcerned enabler that will not stir the royal corpulence.

  11. This doesn’t mean ANYTHING. She will be “Disturbed” for political optics, but will do what ever the GOP leadership wants her to do. She is just another tool.

  12. Don’t be fooled. Republicans are no longer Rational actors, & she will do whatever the GOP tells her.

  13. Shes Conserned wow she and Collins will pretend to walk the walk and do a u ee at last min like hmmm Kavenaughty.

    This tramp is a hypocritical, lying PoS! She’s a “wild card” only when it’s not consequential. There is no courage here, only another GOP PoS.

    This is a charade of having any honor. All GOP senators with a strand of dignity would have left the republican party a few years ago.

  16. McConnell: Aiding and abetting.

  17. Regardless of how she eventually votes, it takes guts to come out against McConnell. Statements like these can have a lot of influence in the end, I believe.

    We don’t care how she “feels”. We care what she does, and chances are she will do nothing to stop the obstruction of justice being committed by the GOP.

  19. “Disturbed”…. I am calling now it will not go further than that with Murkowski and she will vote as McConnell told her to do.
    Vote her and the other GOP moderates hacks out if you want real changes and McConnell out.

  20. As Conservative let’s protest in front of the house of NASTY Murkowski👍🇺🇸
