  1. First of many embarrassing moments for america.

    People forget he represents us all. It’s like a giant trumo fart cloud.

  2. under the cloak of darkness the criminals conspire the dismantling of what’s left of our Country. Republicans, the REAL enemy within.

  3. Nothing says, “let the American people judge the facts” like holding the sessions in the middle of the night and allow no witnesses or evidence in a trial.
    Republicans not even trying to hide their coverup attempts anymore! 👎

    1. Is Moscow Mitch strategy, the less the people see, the less problems to deal with, no people movements showing up at the Senate demanding a fair trail, and demanding to “let people watch the entire trail”      TRUMP’S TRAIL IS A MUST/RIGHT FOR THE PEOPLE TO WATCH !!  period

    2. @Crystal Giddens This is NOT a JUDICIAL Proceeding. The Judicial rules do not apply to the Impeachment Trial. Stop acting like you know what you are talking about. And they do in fact have enough to Remove him from office, but We the People want to hear from Mulvaney, Bolton & Guiliani! If he is innocent he shouldn’t prevent that.

    3. @George Dunn But times have changed and We the People demand to know the truth. It is our right. The corruption is plain to see and based on what has happened already the Russian asset should definitely be removed from office.

    4. @George Dunn It’s useless trying to explain the process to those who think they know it all, i.e. @Crystal Giddens . Those of us who are independent thinkers know that if Trump was truly innocent, he would have cooperated. Instead he obstructed every chance he got. Actions of an innocent man? I think not. Clear as day.

      Unfortunately, the process is rigged by Trump’s minions in the Senate and it will be up to the voters to oust him in November. VOTE VOTE VOTE

    5. @Crystal Giddens It’s amazing how vehement you are on a subject you clearly do not have the correct info on – there where 47 Ru-publicans in the Hearings and the president was FORMALLY invited in writing to participate and have his counsel there – the president wrote back and said NO, he would not participate in any way. Get a clue and Stop Lying!

  4. All republicans do is cheat ! They can’t win fair and square ! And then they want us to believe the first potus that refuses to show his tax returns is a good guy ? All him and republicans do is hide their corruption from Americans.

    1. Funny that Trump’s corrupt GOP bagmen are left holding his bag while he skis in Davos. When will they realize they’re expendable garbage in their leader’s eyes?

  5. If Trump was so concerned about corruption then he wouldn’t have sent Giuliani to “investigate.” Giuliani recently stated that he didn’t want to involve Barr because he didn’t want to “compromise him.” What’s to compromise if everything they are doing is above board? They don’t want evidence because they don’t want to be tethered to reality. These people are not masterminds, they are just stone cold liars and the American people are watching their house of lies crumble.

    1. how did Jared get his 1.5 billion from the UAE ?….Trump threatened to remove the American base there…..they paid protection money. But MAGA people proudly cheer him on saying hahahaha….you can’t PROVE it.

    2. @skidfrog Exactly. Hunter Biden deserves a reprimand but Trump and his children have made a concerted effort to extort money from multiple foreign bodies and governments. If Hunter is guilty of “corruption” then what does that say about “Trump?”

    3. @Real Talk76 or his supporters who are happily cheering that Trump is getting away with his crimes because he’s successfully hiding the evidence .

  6. Them Republicans sure are commiting treason for defiling their oath to the Constitution. They can’t help themselves obstructing again and again. Them tax cuts sure are important to em.

    1. That campaign money is even more important.
      The orange one has control of the RNC’s finances.
      They will work until the wee hours rigging this trial to make sure their fearless orange leader stays in the white house.

    2. Wrong. The Articles do not claim obstruction of law but obstruction of congress. The former is an actual crime the later a nothing burger.

  7. Crooked Senators Rigging A Crooked “Trial”, To Protect A Crooked President ? Or To Protect Their Crooked Boss putin ? Or To Protect Their Crooked Dealings From Coming To Light ? Or To Protect Their Crooked Corporate Money Or Their Crooked Oil Money ?

    1. All of it certainly, my good-chomp, also known as the theocratic SUPER billionaire “FAMILY”.

      Mafia… in other real words.

    2. @James and Cheray Lucas Corporate Profits N Oil Money Are The First To Corrupt The Corruptible republican/Democrats In The Party . They Say Russia (putin) Caught On Video Traitor “trump In A Golden Shower” ? Will We Ever See Or Know For Sure ? No But We Do Know Traitor trump Checks With “Daddy putin” Before He Does Anything .

    1. @Killshot Kelly The Russian Asset in the WH was just fined in December by the Court 2 MILLION dollars for STEALING money out of his fake Charity that was set up for Children and Veterans – that is a crime. YOU support nuking hurricanes, the corruption, the emoluments violations, the sniveling submission to Putin, the mass 70,000++ abduction and terrorizing of children and babies, teargassing of unarmed families with children across an International border, STEALING from his Charity for Kids & Vets, destroying environmental protection laws which mitigate climate change just to make rich corporations richer, calls the top US generals “dopes and babies”, allowing Russia, North Korea & China to gain tremendous strength, allowing China to money launder money to No. Korea thru 4 Chinese banks in New York, pathological lying, stealing of the 2016 Election, the attempted stealing of the 2020 Election, Helsinki, the Russian Foreign Minister standing over the president behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office as Donnie sat like a schoolboy in front of him, Russian money laundering, stock market manipulation & grotesque Corporate Tax Cuts, Removal from the Paris Climate agreement, trying to destroy NATO and all Alliances, sucking up to Autocrats, many secret & 100% private Putin meetings, Brett “I like Beer” Kavanaugh, disrespected the disabled & gold star families, deporting families of soldiers, deported soldiers that were deployed and fought, given away code word level Intel, the gross immaturity, the hate, racism & white supremacy mongering, swamp culture of corrupt Cabinet, Ryan Zinke’s neighbor (a Two-person energy firm with no office) given $300 MILLION contract to fix Puerto Rico’s Power Grid, he does ‘not’ pay the cities services for stroking rallies, 5 time Draft Dodger, 6 time Bankruptcy king who spends other peoples money and does not pay back his debt, windmills cause cancer, tells the world he flushes his toilet 10-15 times each, bc you know, hamberders! and a long list more!

    1. That’s what I fear. Due process includes witnesses and documents. If that gets omitted, trump would not get due process. And that process would prove him guilty as sin

    2. His attorneys are just spreading his manure for him.
      He will continue to repeat lies. And Republicans in Congress will continue to defend him because they need that cash. It’s more important to them than defending the constitution.

    3. Did you complain when during Trump’s impeachment inquiry in the House when he was denied a lawyer, the power to subpoena?

  8. The second “No Collusion, No Obstruction” campaign has just started. Apparently, chant it long enough and it’ll be accepted as truth. Go figure..

    1. @Real Talk76 Thanks for this, I have a Hannah Arendt waiting to be read next to my bed. The question that I was wondering goes more something like: “Are you more easily truncating what you know for what people say because you’ve been raised in a religious background”. I don’t think we can isolate a single factor of course but I wonder if, when raised hearing stories and being praised for believing them, you are more likely to become a trumpist? Can religion be one of the defining factors for a trumpist?

    2. @cekroz It’s more than religion but they have been baptized and submerged in a world of lies for several decades. The way they worship Trump is idolatry. I was raised in a religious background but my culture has much more sound prophets than evangelicals. Evangelicals ministers have been corrupted and are aligning themselves with power, much like they did in Feudal Europe. It’s an old play from an ancient game. Some of it is a play on human nature but for those that operate strictly out of a “belief” system and not reality, it doesn’t matter what is true…it only matters what they “believe” is true. Right wing media has created a paradigm of falsehoods around right wing ideology and then they simply reinforce those beliefs with silly litmus tests that evaluate your loyalty to the ideology. Democracy doesn’t work if you can never conceit to a better idea or approach.

    3. @Real Talk76 That matches the “it’s true for me” from O’Reilly. Your last sentence leaves us with the issue of “measuring” ideas. Given 2 ideas, how would you determine which one is better? Especially with bad faith players.

    4. @cekroz Not a simple answer to that question but in general the decision should weigh on which path does the most good with the least amount of harm. Their are nuances because majority rule can never mean the nullification or dismissal of the minority. Not in this country. But finding the right solution to problems is supposed to be the point of our debates. Recognize the public problem, mitigate the risks and find an acceptable solution. But the solution should always be to the benefit of the people and not necessarily industry. It’s the people that empower government and industry, not money. We seem to have forgotten that in the United States. We need to point out the bad faith players in the hopes that they will be replaced with good faith players so that our government is functional once again. It may take a generation because power conceits nothing. #fightthepower

  9. The conclusion of his trial will be the 2020 election when the people will speak. I remember when so many republicans said a black man would never be an american president. But, the people had the final say and spoke clearly 2 times.

    1. Yes the Republicans think they can shut this down using parliamentary palor tricks but the verdict won’t be read by Mitch McConnell and Lindsay Graham but by outraged citizens who come out to vote. Unfortunately it depends on Democrat candidstes who realize that the republic and rule of law is worth putting aside personal ambition…but that might be too much to ask in this day and age. If so, good riddance America.

    2. The only man who will be President is Donald J. Trump. You liberal pukes and sodomites and baby murderers need to get used to this fact.

    1. Kermit T. Frog care to play chess with her? Cause she played the whole of the Republican Party into checkmate. Now they’ll just swipe the table because they’re horrible losers.

    2. @Kermit T. FrogNancy Pelosi got America all the way, Nancy Pelosi is an all American HERO and PATRIOT and a President.

    1. Sekulow must be the cheer leader and coach for the GOP, they all use that talk over rambling way of feeling correct and then blame the interviewer of the same! Such kooks 🙊🙉🙈🤣

  10. Maya Wiley nailed it. “you won’t accept what we have, despite the White House’s obstruction so let’s bring more.” Arguments against more witnesses and evidence is an indictment in of itself.

    1. @Real Talk76 Dude I know! I have a theory about this in a comment somewhere here. Can you read it and tell me your opinion?

    2. I like her very much, she is experienced, I have learned so much from her,  so yeah !    as she said “you won’t accept what we have, despite the WH obstruction, so let’s bring more “

  11. Peacefully! I always emphasize the word “deep state”, the term mostly used by the President Trump, as the shadow power that manipulate government policies and the officials, which works for the benefit of unknown personalities other than the ordinary American people, of which at last through the attitudes of the Republican GOPs, the term is directly linked to the president & the GOPs.

    1. @kiyari muhammadu    The people you’re referring to are in both parties. They’ve found it best that way because then they never lose power.

  12. mitch is protecting this dookie because the 1% wants MORE from this administration…. Anyone see mitch at some restaurant, throw him more than leftovers.

    1. And he and his wife have enough moola stashed away that he doesn’t ever have to work, I wish he would get the hint and stop working now.

    2. Why? Articles of Impeachment do not even identify a crime. Extremely high probability President will be acquited. If anyone looks bad it is Pelosi for caving to far left and agreeing to impeach without any evidence of a crime.

  13. What does the ORANGE IMBECILE SAY about his impeachment: The whole thing is a sham, it’s rigged, it’s a hoax, etc., etc.!!! It sure sounds as if he’s summing up the trial!
