McConnell Says He Has Votes To Set Impeachment Trial Rules Without Dems | Katy Tur | MSNBC


    1. Yes. The Clinton campaign had Brennan begin a frame up of Trump. It was keystone kops time and the FBI/CIA/DIA/DOJ/STATE DEPT hacks screwed up the FISA stuff and everything else. Now the Clinton cover-up goes into high gear. I don’t think it will work.

    1. Why don’t the American people do peaceful but massive protests like they did in Hong Kong. They didn’t fight, they just brought the city to a standstill day and night by coming out in force. No march. Just staying still in the rain. China had no answer to it and gave in as it was so vast.

    2. God bless Mitch McConnell and his brilliance! Nancy Pelosi and the Dirty Democrats have dug their reelection graves with their Sham Impeachment!

    3. McConnell’s popularity in Kentucky is at an all-time low right now. His RCP Average as of 12/31/2019 is: FAVORABLE 26.7%, UNFAVORABLE 47.7%

    1. @Leonie Romanes Well even if your senate dream came true their is a time limit for Nancy to turn over the articles. If the articles are dismissed you cant use the same articles of impeachment again!

    2. @Kevin Mcneil
      Clinton lied about an extra marital affair
      So has tRump…and paid for a cover up

    3. Do as trump would do. No collusion No obstruction. Jus say guilty as charged the jury is poisioned. Conspireing to aquit before hearing STAR WITNESSES. IS A CRIME ITSELF

    4. @Jerry Vaughn Do you know how really stupid and inane your comment is? It makes no sense.
      Trump is beating you and we Deplorables love it. Ya hoooooo

    1. The only thing Mitch is guilty of, Hawi Jack, is remaking the judiciary in a conservative way that will last for decades. Ha! Winning!

    1. @Leonie Romanes
      The USA was founded on land theft and genocide. It was built on the back of 240 years of slavery followed by decades of Jim Crow and for the last fifty years has spent trillions of dollars on bombing the third world. You don’t get off that hook by simply pointing a finger at some other shithole country.

    2. You have to admit it, Trump keeps exposing the criminality in the democrat party over and over.

  1. To Moscow Mitch: Corruption in the open is still corruption. At the end of the day their legacy will be judged harshly.

    1. when your dead your dead,who cares what the living thinks about what they did WAKE UP 45 and many member’s of the Republican party have one foot and a leg in the grave

  2. Moscow Mitch in action covering up crimes. Hope to see him voted out. Then the real investigations begin.

    1. McConnell’s popularity in Kentucky is at an all-time low right now. His RCP Average as of 12/31/2019 is: FAVORABLE 26.7%, UNFAVORABLE 47.7%

    2. Putin poured 150 million dollars into the Clinton Crime Family Foundation after the Uranium One theft. Well well

    1. There is one thing we can all thank Donald Trump for: he has forced the Republicans to fully expose themselves as the party of sadists, racists, amoral pigs and total slimeballs.

    2. You’re bitterness at losing the 2016 campaign will be nothing compared to what will be in the Barr indictments.

    1. @Robert Allen … Actually McConnell Can And Should Be Legally Removed By EXPULSION from the Senate or The Vote of Kentucky Citizens. Just so long as it is legal and McConnell is GONE is the criteria.

    1. Trump saved the economy from financial suicide brought to you by Obama. He shredded Obama’s policies and regs. He killed Obamacare. He got oil moving again. And unlike Obama, never violated a single law or para of the Constitution.

    2. @Drew Goin Dunno. I stopped looking after Obama added $17,000,000,000 making it $22,000,000,000.
      With the awesome economy Trump has given us, we can at least keep our chins above water.

    1. Cisco Hidalgo The same way Schiff changed the rules in the House. It’s funny to see the democrats cry and whine about “fairness” now. Pizz on ‘em!

  3. So the defense is taking instructions from the guilty and they say they love AMERICA , exile all of them to daddy putin

  4. Gotta love how Republicans cried about how the House’s Impeachment trial wasn’t fair yet they refuse to subpoena 1st hand witnesses for the senate trial. Traitors with agendas no doubt.

    1. Its not rocket science. Republicans complained that there was not enough evidence because first hand witnesses didn’t testify (Sondland was a 1st hand witnesses lmfao) so you put “”””EVEN MORE PRESSURE”””” on the senate by bringing in the same people who Trump “KEPT FROM TESTIFYING” Bolton, Pompeo Pence etc. (The ones who know the most) These witnesses add “ADDITIONAL” evidence (for the stubborn people) that not even a blind deaf or dumb person can ignore. If the public sees this and the Senate decides to acquit trump then many Republicans will lose the trust of the people and lose their seats along with tons of money. That’s why Pelosi is holding the articles. She’s waiting for a fair senate trial. Too bad some ppl are incapable of drawing up their own unbiased conclusion because an innocent President doesn’t block emails & people from testifying lol 😂🤣😂🤣

    2. Nope. They just held Schumer to the same rules Schiff held the House GOP team had to work with. You don’t like it, do you?

    3. @Trump is an awesome President I thought trolls lived under a bridge!? Your youtube name pffffff ha ha ha 😂🤣😂🤣

    4. @wally vee Nah….we come up to laugh and gloat at how our wonderful President is running rings around the State Dept hacks, the CIA, the FBI and the DOJ crooks who tried to frame him.

      He dared Nancy ‘clacking dentures’ Pelosi to impeach him. Twice!!

      Does he act scared? The Iranian general is unavailable for comment.

    5. @Trump is an awesome President whiney “Fact less” sand in your Vagina rants lol 😂🤣😂 my gut! please stop it it hurts lol

    1. McConnell’s Legal EXPULSION From Office Is Near. Either by VOTE of American Citizens, Or VOTE Of The Senators in 2021.

    2. Mmmmm…Who is he? Is he part of Trump’s Infamous List? Roger Stone, Micheal Flynn, George Papadopoulo, Rick Gates, Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort? Is he one of Rudy Giuliani Ukrainian associates, Jeffrey Epstein associate?

    1. and without handcuffs which Brennan, Clapper, Strozk, Page, Comey, Weismann, and McCabe will be able to say soon. Remember how long you pined for the Mueller Report to give you what you dream of? what happened?

    1. V The Democrats have been after Trump for 3 straight years and he makes them look like fools at every turn. It’s become comedy. Democrats are the Keystone Cops of Congress. “We must impeach NOW because the President is a threat to National Security”! Oh wait….let’s hold on to these articles. 🤣🤣🤣 What a bunch of clowns!

    2. OrangeManBad keeps outsmarting and outmaneuvering the criminal DNC crooks. Drats! Foiled again!

    3. V…the whole republican party can’t win an honest election since ronald reagan so they gerrymander, fix the voting machines and do whatever they can to suppress the african american voters. they put all kinds of stumbling blocks in the way to encourage people to give up! i can’t wait to see this criminal in prison!!

    4. @Richard Henry Sr
      Suppress the african american vote? You mean the Jim Crow laws? The ones that the dems created to keep negroes from voting? Those voter suppression laws?

      Black are being replaced by Mexicans buddy. Soon you won’t be needed.

    1. …. “Cant handle the Trump Train”..
      Do you means the one boarded by Roger Stone, Micheal Flynn, George Papadopoulos, Rick Gates, Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort; That Train?!?! The one Rudy Giuliani and associates are about to board. Didn’t Jeffrey Epstein have a ticket and OUSTED Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta?
