44 Comments on "NBC News: House Democrats Focusing On ‘Abuse Of Power’ | The Last Word | MSNBC"

  1. We have seen abuse of power on a daily basis since Jan 20, 2017

    • @eurekajim #VoteBlue2020 67 votes in the Senate will never happen. It will never even get there because there are not enough votes in the house. Republicans want this vote more than Democrats.

    • @Mark Haddox Do you think you can just turn off reality by flicking a mental switch or something?

    • You’re right! Nancy Pelosi has been running around like a power crazed old loofa, queen of the Resistance!

    • @Paul Hodireff Your comment would be more clever if that date had anything to do with Nancy Pelosi. Alas, it refers to Donald Trump, the stupidest, greediest person Republicans ever inflicted on the USA, soon to be confined to a prison cell.

      @Nessuno Dorme Pay Mark no mind. I encountered him last night on a different topic; conspiratorial, fact-free and has no game…

  2. Dear America, time to take out the garbage at the White House.

  3. There’s a strong argument for abuse of power, but when a good portion of todays Republican party seem to view authoritarian leadership style favorable, I am afraid they like the abuse of power.

    • 3LD Correct. Trump is who they’d love to be! As Mulvaney said, We do crimes…”Get Over It”! His Republican cult are complicit, willing volunteers for Trump’s Abuse of Power Dictator, *not* victims! …

      …That’s until future *forever unemployed* folks like Kellyanne, Steph. Grisham, Steven Miller, Mulvaney are with Sean Spicer, DANCING on TV (shamelessly). AND selling their Post-Trump Era books, with titles like- “Woe to My Struggles as Only Adult in Room/ I Was Always Against HIM. Totally -“Believe me!!” 😂😂😂

    • @idkThis is a RUSSIAN comment…TRUE Americans must be aware of these RUSSIAN comments for the 2020 elections. No mention of how EVIL paedophile trump aka individual one, America we have KNOWN CRIMINAL in the oval office, how can that possibly be. Americans we will not get any help from the republicans Pete Sessions and 3 other republicans have admitted receiving funding from RUSSIANS, the NAR and America first, right wing organisation admits receiving funding from RUSSIANS. MOSCOW MITCH and his wife Suzy Wong are cheating America also

      @idk Lemme guess, that’s the IG Report that’s going to be coming out in 2 weeks, Right?
      BTW, if it was an abuse of Power it wouldn’t be stated plainly in the Constitution, Ivan. Get Over it.

    • Good thing Trump has not abused his power than…..Dems attempted coup of an election is comical, albeit psychotic….

    • @Bucky Pinata This is a RUSSIAN comment…TRUE Americans must be aware of these RUSSIAN comments for the 2020 elections.

  4. If Republicans want a dear leader so badly, the least they could do is support a competent one who doesn’t whine 24/7 and isn’t afraid of his own shadow.

    • Andrew Mitchell | October 22, 2019 at 3:17 AM | Reply

      With the state the GOP is in, competent people wouldn’t be going into Republican politics right now.

    • Andrew Mitchell with the state the world is in, competent people wouldn’t vote republican.

    • Mexico is Putin slaves . CNN is commie news where all lies are da trufs. USA military is owned and operated by Putin. Trump hates putin for stealing USA lands when Comrad Intel Agency sold out and torture freedom masses

    Trumpty Dumpty is going to have a great fall and I have my popcorn.

  7. 77% of the united states population wants you to invoke the 25th amendment

    I think focusing on Ukraine is a good idea, but they also need to present the case that this is a pattern of behavior that has been ongoing and will continue if Trump isn’t removed. It’s not just a one-time event.

  9. The crimes, the conspiracies, and the obstruction are the organizational structure for every part of the Trump Regime.

    #RunForestTrump……But you can’t hide from the Truth or the Law!

    the Dems also must include Syria in impeachment articles as it demonstrates he is unfit for the office!

    • Good thing Trump has not abused his power than…..Dems attempted coup of an election is comical, albeit psychotic….

  12. I so like that Larry lets his guests speak completely without a need to inject himself or cut them off. Thanks Larry.

  13. When you go bear hunting you do not just put one bullet in your gun. I could write a dozen articles of impeachment and I’m no lawyer. Everyone involved in this Administration needs to face justice.

    • Yes, but you usually aim very carefully and pull the trigger just once. And shoot one bear at a time.
      You’re right, they all need to face the consequences of their actions, though. I think that’s one reason the Democrats are collecting so much ammo.

  14. It took a very long time to Romney to getting shocked about something.

  15. It must be made clear, Trump does not need to be guilty of ALL elements.

  16. He is so inhumane…No condolences to Elijah Cummings or Pelosi’s brother passing away

  17. One of Andrew Johnson’s impeachment charges was “disgrace of the office”. Trump qualifies for this with more than 12,000 fact checked lies.

  18. No citizens want to hear from the corporatist shills at third way.

    It reassures me that The Boss (Nancy) is in charge.

  20. So telling that it takes months to “collect all the evidence”. There are so many grounds for impeachment.
