  1. Just remember if the House votes for impeachment and it goes to the Senate for a trial and their vote…
    Whackjob 45 must appear in person and under oath to testify before the Senate & the Chief Justice…
    This could be an interesting scenario, with absolutely no way 45 can be questioned under oath…

    • OSKA Joe Biden’s video taped confession is available for viewing.

    • OSKA World: America is better than what the left is caracaturing. We are actually intelligent and we are a great business partner and ally. Please forgive the bout of intestinal gas. The remedy is being delivered on Monday.

    • @Maha Tiki Cat I would not apply this analogy of yours to ALL Americans. There’s a lot of MAGA-T’s out there and their intelligence is not something to crow about

    • OSKA you suffer from illusory superiority. Typical

  2. the founders had specifically written the Constitution in the way that they did in order to protect us against anyone doing the very things which trump has done and is still doing. impeachment and removal is required if we are to save our nation. ty mr o’donnell and mr katyal.

    • mary jones World: America is better than what the left is caracaturing. We are actually intelligent and we are a great business partner and ally. Please forgive the bout of intestinal gas. The remedy is being delivered on Monday.

    • mary jones oh, you knew them? How old are you?

    • @Maha Tiki Cat i am an American and know the greatness of our nation. our Constitution is about who we are as a nation, the things for which we stand. were you a student of history then you would also know the same answers. try reading the Constitution, the federalist papers, biographies of the main signers of the Constitution, their diaries, etc.

  3. What else will he cheat with if he gets away with this?
    He really should removed with the 25th, he is clearly unfit for office.

    • Elaniago World: America is better than what the left is caracaturing. We are actually intelligent and we are a great business partner and ally. Please forgive the bout of intestinal gas. The remedy is being delivered on Monday.

    • You need to be removed from your job! If I were your boss i’d find a way to fire you!

    • Probably would be very easy!

  4. Many of our founding fathers were initially opposed to impeachment, but when confronted with the question, “What if a sitting president went to a foreign power of seek election help?” they all agreed to the legitimacy and necessity of impeachment.

    • @Maha Tiki Cat Under Trump we are less intelligent than before and less trustworthy in business and planetary security than before. I too look to a Monday remedy.

      I am old enough to have lived in one foreign country, ten states, and the District of Columbia. I am young enough to have sold cable TV subscriptions door to door in college.

      Having had my gall bladder removed on Wednesday, I too am experiencing intestinal gas.

    Really hope there are more than 3 articles, because there are many impeachable acts 45* has committed, some even before he took office:

    obstruction of justice;
    violations of the Foreign Emoluments Clause and Domestic Emoluments Clause of the United States Constitution;
    conspiring with others to: (a) commit crimes against the United States involving the solicitation and intended receipt by the Donald J. Trump campaign of things of value from a foreign government and other foreign nationals; and (b) conceal those violations;
    advocating illegal violence, giving aid and comfort to white supremacists and neo-Nazis, and undermining constitutional protections of equal protection under the law;
    abusing the pardon power;
    recklessly threatening nuclear war against foreign nations, undermining and subverting the essential diplomatic functions and authority of federal agencies, including the United States Department of State, and engaging in other conduct that grossly and wantonly endangers the peace and security of the United States, its people and people of other nations, by heightening the risk of hostilities involving weapons of mass destruction, with reckless disregard for the risk of death and grievous bodily harm;
    directing or endeavoring to direct law enforcement, including the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, to investigate and prosecute political adversaries and others, for improper purposes not justified by any lawful function of his office, thereby eroding the rule of law, undermining the independence of law enforcement from politics, and compromising the constitutional right to due process of law;
    undermining the freedom of the press;
    cruelly and unconstitutionally imprisoning children and their families; and
    making and directing illegal payments to influence the 2016 election

    Seven US Republican Senators and one House Representative attempted a dialogue with Russia and putin in July 2018.
    They were ignored by putin, patronized by his government, ultimately betrayed and today are willing russian assets spouting russian propaganda.

    They and many more republicans hold the door open to putin’s control of DjT’s nascent dictatorship.

  8. When both parties know that the consequence of failing to comply with the request of a favor will be imminent military attack, regardless of the source of that attack, it seems like extortion to me.

  9. Wtf… that glitch out @ 0:18

    • “…which of course is a phrase in the Constitughughugh, a crime in the ughughugh, offensible crughughugh…” LOL!

    Read Neal’s book—it’s a quick read and very informative. Perhaps the corrupt and world’s butt of jokes Trump should too. Nah, too busy fighting corruption overseas and eating cheeseburgers.

    Of course no president is above the law however the American Government has given wealth precedence over justice more times than media outlets will cover. Therefore the current President does believe he as other wealthy persons now and before him, are above the law. The authority of the Judicial system have given this president his place of being … And it does not stop with the president

    Treason.

    DOUBLE STANDARDS? Does Mr. Katyal think SLEEPY JOE BIDEN did a Quid pro quo when he “shook down the Ukraine” by insisting they “fire the prosecutor investigating Burisma & Hunter Biden”? I didn’t think so!

  14. Why is the press obsessed with this it’s going nowhere!

  15. Disney YOU will not silence the truth!

  16. Well Mary Jones unless you are sacrificing babies to satan you have no idea what is actually going on!

  17. There is no way this President is leaving power! I’m sick of all the talk about it!

  18. Fox? Can you report about something else? You know the Senate will never go there! Drop it! Don’t even want to talk about a worst case scenario at this point!

  19. because we all know what that will entail.

  20. Obstruction of justice of law enforcement and obstruction of Congress can’t be the same.
