    Yet he supported witnesses for Bill Clinton’s impeachment saying, “You need witnesses in a trial.”

    • @brian gardner yup that is exactly where Trump is leading us.

      brian gardner You really ARE a fucking idiot, aren’t you? Too stupid to actually watch the news? Too stupid to actually come up with an argument? All you MAGA Cult Robots can do is create pitiful insults.

    • @Mark Shelor you are familiar with the term “executive privilege.” every president has used it to resist congressional oversight. it’s a well established principle in law. the court decides the question on a case by case basis. don’t you remember schiff though. his contention was that they didn’t have the time to wait for the courts to ejudiciate the issue because trump would keep breaking the law in the interim. on a side note, that position is kind of hard to square with the fact that pelosi is now toying with the idea of not sending the articles over to the senate for trial. i’m sure that glaring irony will be lost on you democrats. but believe me, it’s a thing.

      Becka Miller It’s amusing that you believe that. Impeachment will not help his case at all. In fact, I can guarantee you, once his term ends he WILL be arrested. Better go buy your new binkie early.

      Frankly my dear Republicans, we don’t give a damn. Impeachment is enough. America knows the Russians in the Senate will acquit Trump and laugh to the United States Of America.
      Republicans impeached Clinton for a blowjob and they can’t impeached a female genitalia grabber for Bribery, Extortion, Abuse Of Power, Contempt of Congress, Witness intimidation, Obstruction of Justice, Wire Fraud, Mail Fraud, Bank Fraud, Tax Fraud, Tax Evasion, Election Fraud, Campaign Fraud, Witness Tampering, Treason, Cooking the Books, Money Laundering, and much more? What gives? Trump has dirt on the GOP.

    • @Yola Montalvan
      You certainly do have a laundry list of fake charges. Too bad Pelosi and her Democrat pals are now guilty of sedition and treason.
      Think about it while you vote for Trump in 2020.

    • @Sergey Lavrov that’s demonstrably false. There were 12 corroborating witnesses, a released transcript that is damn-near verbatim what’s in the actual call to the president of Ukraine and public admissions by both Trump and his press secretary. That bs may work on a fox comment thread, but not here.

  3. That hack needs to go in his turtle shell and float away.

  4. This is a haiku
    It’s not about anything
    Except impeachment

  5. And the show contineus…

  6. McConnell has died 20 years ago, but somehow he is still alive LOL

    • @My Jeezebel are you watching the debate. Lol The people on the stage tonight are giving Trump the victory on a silver plate. Thank you for the impeachment. For the first time Trump is predicted to win against every candidate. Yeah!

    • @truth speaker “Impeached president” who will be in jail after his presidency.

    • @Adam D I don’t care after 2024. Just continue to let him work. New trade deals every day. Got a raise and Christmas bonus this year.

    • @truth speaker Good for you. However, he is terrible on foreign policy. The world is laughing at us and Russia is taking over the whole world. It’s not just about money and economy! Think outside the box, PLEASE !

  8. A trial without witnesses is not a trial, it’s a cover-up.

    • Thomas Martin then why didn’t the Democrats go thru the courts, and make the witnesses testify, nobody stopped them from doing it, but apparently they didn’t want to go that route, and if their evidence is so overwhelming like they claim, why do they need to call additional witnesses? The evidence was good enough to vote on, but not good enough to pass on to the Senate, lol, they should just hold onto them as a momento, to avoid further embarrassment

    • Eclipse The Gambling Ocelot Learn the process. A subpoena can only be enforced by the courts. Just because Adam Schiff took out his crayons and wrote a letter to trump saying you better come here and testify or you’re in trouble it has no merit. Remember that question on your GED exam about the 3 branches of government? Well the house dems ignored them

    • Thomas Martin Trump’s children have nothing to do with this. Heck, Pelosi’s holding back the articles of impeachment now because this is such a weak case and she knows it. The articles don’t have any substance, there’s not a crime specified, there’s not an impeachable offense specified.
      It’s all a bunch of opinions and presumption and hearsay. McConnell might dismiss it. The only reason for this impeachment is the liberal democrats want Trump gone, period …

    • Just like dems didn’t allow rep to call any witnesses

  9. The Delay is a good move. The only move. Need time to think…

    • David Williams Thats your opinion, your theory and you’re entitled to it. I prefer not to feed in to defeatism and embrace a much more positive way of thinking. That’s just me.

    • Christina Denham | December 19, 2019 at 9:16 PM | Reply

      @David Williams I hope you didn’t reproduce because anybody that would follow and support Trump is pure ignorance and I’m ashamed my fellow human beings are so weak minded that they would worship a maniac fool

      @Christina Denham Too late. I taught my kids the importance of objectivity from a very early age so that they do not go through life in a perpetual state-of-hate. If my son ever met someone like you spewing non-sense about equality, he would make a mockery out of you.

    • David Williams | December 19, 2019 at 9:37 PM | Reply

      @Classy Lady Yes, sometimes denial is best. It keeps you Neo-Marxist/Homofascist sane…mostly.

    • David Williams Sure David, are you done? Your words salads sound ridiculous. Anyone with common sense can see right through your vacuous rambling. Try gaslighting someone who lacks self awareness and critical thinking. I’m not the one. I come from people who have been through some of the most horrific crimes to ever happen in this country. Perseverance is ingrained into my genetics. No intimidation or scare tactics will work. I learned a long time ago not to waste my energy on debating reprobates. You can have this one, I’ll take the high road.

  10. Moscow mitch knows he will be losing in the next election, so he doesnt care. He would rather see the house burn down

    • @SQR what kind of question is that to ask. are you trying to be mean. for crying out loud, these are democrats. of course they don’t know how government works.

    • @GramaJ Catherder so how exactly is luke a liar? and let me take this opportunity to thank you in advance for what i anticipate will be a thoughtful and well reasoned response to my query.

    • @GramaJ Catherder i just want to take a moment to commend you for picking up on the fact that president trump is a liar. the other day, i heard him say that it was partly sunny outside. i took a look out my window and it was clearly, partly cloudy. there’s another one. will you call cnn or should i, so they can add that whopper to his list of lies.

    • ​@writer’s block let’s see, 3 % unemployment. he negotiated usmca, which will create half a million good jobs. his prison reforms are focused on rehabilitation and early release, as opposed to incarceration only. he is stopping the theft of american intellectual property by china. he’s strengthened our commercial fisheries industry. he’s made us energy independent. he has accelerated our NASA programs. 80% of americans want stronger border enforcement. president trump has actually delivered. the president has forced NATO nations to start paying that share of their own defense to which they have previously agreed. maybe they don’t like it, but i do and so should you. and that reminds me, president trump is the first president in my lifetime that seems to be truly committed to following through on the promises he made during his campaign. among other initiatives he is working on, but can’t get congress to move on, is his promise to break the pharmacutical industries monopolistic control of drug prices. everything i’ve listed is demonstrable, and has had a positive effect on our economy and our people. a lot of people hate republicans because of that idiot W. Bush. i suggest you forget that. trump is nothing like W. the idiot. in fact trump has redefined the republican party, more in the mold of the party of lincoln. like lincoln, trump believes that the real wealth of the nation resides in people who work. it’s no accident that for the first time in my lifetime, blue collar people are seeing their wages grow at a rate faster than the wages of white collar people. the president is bringing things back into balance. it’s easy to attack him and belittle him. heck, he almost invites it with his combatative personality. but you can’t deny his accomplishments. imagine what he could do if the democrats in the house would give him half a chance.

  11. Hold the Articles. Let it hang over their heads.

    • @Sal Verdoliva That’s my point, only the House has the SOLE power to bring the President to trial, The Senate CANNOT have a trial if Pelosi doesn’t initiate it by sending the Article of Impeachment to the Senate, it doesn’t happen automatically..

    • @Lorric Logging I am stating Basic Government 101 FACTS, go look it up.

    • You see Nancy wants this to be speedy but under her terms. Trump wants her on stand as a witness for the senate to tear her apart while under oath. The big one would be Nadler.. the senate would rip him apart. If trump wanted a speedy trial he could easily demand it. He wants the dems on the stand to be torn apart. And the longer Nancy waits and keeps getting rejected for her terms, Trump will get what he wants.

    • CaneFu moron, she already allowed it by voting on the articles, now it goes to the Senate, what don’t you understand, no wonder Trump won, with idiots like you representing the Democratic Party, 2020 is a landslide

    • @BoomeR DoomeR Trump cannot demand anything at his own impeachment trial, you’re an idiot.

  12. McConnell does not like being delayed to send this to his Grim Reaper circular file.

  13. Moscow Mitch: I know political strategy!

    Pelosi: Hold my California Chardonnay Turtle Man.

    • @Bobby Rogue Let me break it down real slow for those like you who are mentally challenged. The Senate can not convene a hearing without the Articles of Impeachment. It’s similar to a real trial where you can’t proceed without evidence. You know the thing where both sides inject counter arguments to prove one way or the other the facts of the case? Do you get it now or does someone have to draw you a map with pop-ups to explain it all?

    • Shahla Bozorgzadeh ok a serious question, what happened to the Democrats urgency to impeach? What changed?

    • Excellent

    • Hahaha 😂 cracked me up 😂

    • Bobby Rogue

      Well grasshopper…

      Mitch wants this over quick. Nancy will stall and make a fuss over their ‘process’

      Mitch wants to do this during the holidays when people are distracted. Sweep it under the rug.

      Nancy is going to force him to do this in January when people are a little cranky after the holidays are over.

      The Iowa Caucus is February 3. Nancy wants this to hit fever pitch just before that to rile the base.

      A master class in political chess is going on.

  14. “Did not bother to pursue”

    McConnell never misses a chance to lie for his narrative.

      @seven s.v.
      You should get your money back from that creative writing class.

    • @Dave Schultz Are you all illiterate? Read the original comment please.

    • @John Doe No one said anything about Putin. Seriously, none of you guys could read my one sentence comment?

      The lie I’m referring to is the quote I provided from this video. McConnell wants you to believe that the house rushed the articles of impeachment by skipping witnesses. In reality, they called the exact witnesses he’s talking about, but Trump himself ordered them not to comply with their subpoenas, which is illegal and clearly an abuse of power in and of itself. That’s why they made a second article for obstruction of congress.

      But McConnell will never bring that up, because he has this false narrative that looks better for him. It’s really his only move, too. He personally prevents the house from making laws, then turns around and says they’ve done nothing. There are 400+ bills on his desk, but no, his “do-nothing Democrats” story is too valuable to him. He has a story he wants to tell, he abuses his position of power to ensure that he can tell it, and he hopes you are all too stupid to see that he’s pulling the strings. Stop proving him right.

    • @seven s.v. #HiVlad

    • they could’ve subpoenaed those witnesses when drafting their BS articles. they knew that would make impeachment front and center in the 2020 election. they also know they have lost ground every day since this started, and want it as far behind them in november as possible. they will absolutely lose the house over this.

    So the “I’m the Grim Reaper” isn’t happy that he no longer can”t arrogantly manipulate the impeachment?

  16. I just cannot finish watching this. I can’t stand to see him and hear him talk.

  17. I love how she treats these childish men like children.

  18. Nervous Nancy is like the dog that caught the car. She can’t beat Mitch.
