  1. Trump’s lawyers brought the word “hatred” back into the discussion – the word trump used extensively over the last 4 years to get his base worked up.

    1. VladI …it was evident even to dead people, Who stirred up hatred all these years just by listening and looking at the shenanigans the commie Dems kept pulling.

    2. Can you cite or quote the speeches where he used the word “hatred?” Or as as cheap stooge you think you can make up whatever you want just like the House managers that manipulated the videos they showed. One thing is sure. You’re infected with the delusional Trump hate syndrome.

    1. @Lion Home you are comparing insurrection? With a protest by antifa, you Gotta be kidding, once your rights are taken from you, then coming back. Why don’t you ask the Russian people, the ones that are protesting Putin, ask him how and where are their rights, see what they tell you. This is where your cult leader wants to take you, keep drinking the Kool-Aid.

    2. @Apdavis Davis The GOP, was voted in by the Republican people, they came in to the Republican party, in sheep‘s clothing, not nine they were all wolves. The confederacy lost the union one, and these people are still at it. What I’m saying is that cruise, Rubio, Josh Holly, all these guys are Confederate senators, they’re not Republicans.

    3. @Lion Home just like Donald J Trump’s lawyers, presenting no facts, no evidence, and just lying, completely lying to the American people, so shameful, keep drinking the Kool-Aid bro.

    4. @Jillian Copeland I totally agree with your comment, the right, agitators totally, remember when they came in with the paint balls, and was shooting up all these people, that was part of it, I have friends that live in Oregon, and they said that they were people coming in from out of town and there were the agitators. That was part of the plan

    5. @Lion Home You know who could have done something to calm everyone down during the BLM protests? The president of the United States. And yet, he sat back and did nothing. Just like he always did. He encouraged violence instead of trying to calm people down. He himself even had peaceful protesters in front of a church gassed so he could do a ridiculous photo op. Former thrives on chaos and that is what four years under Former has been. Complete and utter chaos. The buck stops at the top, unless you are Former and you blame everyone else for your failings. He needs to face justice. For once in his criminal life.

    1. Yet another reason why We the People must do our part: We need to raise the Voice of the People to relentless levels. We need to call our own US Senators and leave voice mails/messages insisting that they convict. We need to ask our friends and families to do the same. Main Congressional switchboard 202-224-3121, or use home state office numbers.

    2. @Fitawrari Fitness I think they could not deal with the viciousness of the assault and the deadly betrayal of those who made sure they were understaffed, with no riot gear, etc. on that day. Everyone knew what was planned…

    3. Let’s hope that all cops victims, including Romney and Pence, and others, are going to join effort and make a criminal case out of it all. This is not what America is all about and cannot stay unpunished.

    4. Let the Capitol police vote on Trump’s impeachment. I trust their judgment .They bravely fought to defend the Capitol and our democracy.

    1. @Zach Schaefer because the Democrats point and say “squirrel” when it’s actually a rabid honey badger lurking

    1. WOW, you can actually spell hatred! We and the whole world saw a lot of hatred on Jan. 6, 2021 at our nation’s Capitol.

    1. He will throw his oldest son in the next race.Don Jr.Remember the one yelling .,We are comming for you.that oily haird one.that was supposed to walk with dear old dad.

    2. @Connie sue adams Adams The American people will not elect anyone with the last name Trump.
      Like father like son.
      He does not have the experience but to scream.

    3. He still wouldn’t win his group of voters will only shrink over the next few years. The new generation of voters that will vote in the next election will never vote for anything remotely close to anything like trump. They want free everything and they don’t want to work.

    4. @Jock Young Well, have you done your own serious research? Or are you content regurgitating the garbage coming from the MSM? My first choice is the latter.

  2. The problem with Trump’s lawyer’s argument, is that there was literally nothing left to fight for. The election was over. The only thing that remained was for Pence to count and certify the electoral votes. So the only thing they could’ve been fighting for, was to bring a stop to the counting of the electoral votes. And violence was their only option left. Trump had already exhausted every other illegal and unconstitutional option. So on January 6, the violence card was the only card Trump had left.

    1. @UC6rZBb5oOkcMkJ8tmbE0xfg It hasn’t occurred to you while you’re telling the whole World they’ve been deceived that maybe your lone voice is the one that’s got things wrong?

    2. David J… Not so…and there’s still the possibility of elections being overturned because of all the fraudulent actions Dem directed workers took. But if the states done coooerate with doing counting right by vetting every name and address, it’s just counting over the same fraudulent ballots again. …which they, some states are still trying to pass off as legit. If that doesnt pan out…mostly because poll workers hid or dumped Trump votes, then perhaps a majority of states can have done total purging of their books and ballots to begin each new voting season where there numbers add up correctly and are all legit. The frauds they’ve committed and winked at for decades is Not acceptable. Neither is interventions by other countries in our nation’s elections the way they’ve done for many years then, l hope ..this nation rejoins its political counterparts

    1. @OEM Global That’s the third time you’ve said that. Perhaps you’ve been working on the sentence all day so you thought you’d repeat yourself but the third reading didn’t make you look any less of a tadpole than the first.

    2. Wait til dump meets the GA election fraud investigation and the sexual misconduct case(s) in court. He is going to jail because facts do not lie and his inept defense team will fail.

    1. @Cat 2018 democrat got controlled the house of congress, 2020 they now controlled the Senate, it’s because people are unhappy with these GOP. also a lot of republican voters already leave GOP after Jan 6th. many more will follow. it’s our call now, we the people, since we can not rely on the GOP Senators to do their job as an elected official to protect the people, our country, our constitution from this insurrectionist. these GOP senators are now doom.

    2. @Purpose-with-passion You may have forgotten that the jurors are also victims of the crime (yes, even the GOP Congress people, to some degree) . . . that changes the situation just a bit, don’t you think?
      Kind of hard to be “unbiased” when you were one of the ones victimized by the perpetrator . . .
      I think the house impeachment manager team has presented their side as clearly, truthfully, and dispassionately as humanly possible, under the circumstances . . . and should be commended for that.

    3. @James Brauer i appreciate you response, However it is important to be unbiased to that the wrong people aren’t blamed, What a victim should want is the perpetrarots and not an escape goat. The house impeachment managers branded the former President as guilty without present facts that substantiated this. The evident must be clear and not conjecture of inferences based on what one believed happened. All facts were not in. And interpretations of what you think a person meant by what the said or did is not fact. Also, there were many victims who should be celebrate but I don’t think celebrating injured officers should have been lessoned by including them in an impeachment trial. There should be a separate ceremony hearalding what was done with all the bells and whistles, otherwise it seemed like an emotional ploy. Lastly, there were two parties victimized at the capital that was the Democrats AND the Rebuplicans who were all int he same room. If it occurred exactly as presented by Democratic Managers, there would have been no need to convince republicans otherwise. This is were things are unclear. You can’t present data through your personal interpretation of what occurred. you can narrate snipets of info and say your narration is fact. This is the flaw of what was presented.

    1. Nicolle Wallace has never been capable of reporting things as they really are and not through her cheap, completely biased and hate filled, MSNBC lens. The Wallace rag is just like the house managers that sprinkle some truth to what otherwise is a Big Lie. “They had the video too,” she claims, conveniently concealing that it was provided to them practically in the last moment. Trump’s defense team didn’t say they weren’t given the video at all, rather that they got it just a day or two before. Hardly acceptable in a trial where evidence is given ample time to examine.

    2. @Lora Give it up. Nicolle Wallace is one of the best presenters and she comes with receipts. She’s also a Republican, but one of the good ones. If you really want to continue with the lies, keep listening to Fox and Newsmax.

  3. I tried to follow the logic of the defense of the former President…I’m not a lawyer…so with that being said….I did this… …..REALLY.

    1. @Daniel Morse No one “caught” anything. Stating it and proving that statement aren’t the same. If they had proof of falsifications, they should have shown it. They didn’t.

    2. @Honest E goodness go back and watch the thing again and pay attention . they totally dismantled the managers statements piece by piece and showed the real truth. . the managers lied and misrepresented the few facts that they presented. .

    3. @tony blackmon don’t beleive your own eyes. Listen to the conspiracies. Everyone is lying to you except for the ones you want to beleive. Dispite all evidence, you know the truth, you got a gut feeling. You believe it’s all fake, they told you so. Only the people you have been told you dislike are the ones lying to you. Baaaa, sheep.

    4. They have no defense, they are just there to say things and fill time. They will win they case either way because the court is stacked. They were unprepared because they didn’t need to prepare. It was decided before it started

    5. @tony blackmon goodness! What do you know about goodness? You just found a new level, sinking below deplorable to despicable.

    1. @Joan Branham : And there are people who can’t understand how Pelosi, Waters, Cortez, Durbin, Schumer, Omar or Sanders get re elected for real.

    2. @Gary Campbell and thats pretty much everyone that isnt from their home states.. those
      “ legislators” are traitors. especially schumer . hes a lunatic

    3. Yet the Republican want to vote out their own doing what’s right and put in guys that support what the insurrectionist/racist/ conspiracy. theorists stand for. They’re going down a more of this or worse road!!

    1. @kerry nicholls no lawyer in this country should have took this case. They are completely stupid and making themselves look like fools. Especially when the evidence has been in plain view for months.

  4. I take it that Trump’s lawyer did not actually “lie” when he said he never saw the Democratic security videos — he simply declined to watch them when he had the opportunity. That’s an important distinction, because it suggests — doesn’t it? — that the lawyer sought to mislead all of us when he made the claim?

    1. they were thinking we are like Trump’s supporters. I saw on CNN what was happening when they were certifying the electoral votes and all of a sudden they stopped, all of them went hiding. Trump lawyers are trying to make us stupid.

    2. they were thinking we are like Trump’s supporters. I saw on CNN what was happening when they were certifying the electoral votes and all of a sudden they stopped, all of them went hiding. Trump lawyers are trying to make us stupid. they are liars like Trump and the Republican Senators who are enabling Trump. Disgusting.

    3. Speaking of misleading, did you see the house managers 16 hours of arguments? Nothing but lies and intentional deception

    4. Trump’s defense team didn’t say they weren’t given the video at all, rather that they got it just a day or two before. Hardly acceptable in a trial where evidence is given ample time to examine. Nicolle Wallace has never been capable of reporting things as they really are and not through her cheap, completely biased and hate filled, MSNBC lens. The Wallace rag is just like the house managers that sprinkle some truth to what otherwise is a Big Lie. “They had the video too,” she claims, conveniently concealing that it was provided almost to them practically in the last moment.

  5. Why have we heard nothing of Boebert? Isn’t anyone following up on her tour of the Capitol? We should know, either way.

    1. @Truthfinder Perhaps. It could have been anyone, all we have is her word. Why doesn’t anyone, left or right, give us more? There has to be evidence, one way or the other.

    2. @inthso Security camera are all around the capitol. That should be adequate evidence, along with her family’s sworn statements.

    3. @inthso Security cameras are all around the capitol. Don’t worry, the evidence of what happened and who she led around the building are recorded.

    4. @Truthfinder If we have adequate evidence, why isn’t it being shared? Why would we trust a person who said she’d done nothing wrong before even being named, and who also tweeted info during the insurrection, when everyone was instructed *NOT TO USE SOCIAL MEDIA* during that time. Even if you don’t find that suspicious, why are so many rep’s rule-breakers, when they’re always claiming to be law-and-order? I guess law-and-order only applies to the little, un-gov’t folk.

    1. And your right! I don’t understand why they don’t call this a coup, it was an attempt to overtake a separate but equal power of our government.

    2. @George Kent My dear ignoramuses, they were within easy reach of both main chambers of Congress, and had entered the Senate chamber where they could have proclaimed a coup if that’s what they were after. Yet no one did. But that’s clearly too much for the pea brains you both have to figure out.

    3. Johnny, read my response to George since it applies to you also. But also let me correct your second grade English. “They don’t have any defense” not “defend.” And tell your class mate George that it’s “you’re right,” not “your right.” You think because crazy Hillary called you an elite, that you really are?

    4. @Lora fortunately they failed. They intended to even to the point that girl got shot trying to enter. They even mentioned they thought they won. They thought they totally stopped the certification. However, what they didn’t know was democracy would prevail and they would continue the certification up until 4am despite the failed attempt. If someone robs a bank and does not get any money it doesn’t allow them to walk free.

    1. @Stunt Panda Sorry SunShine that is first 1/2 hour off your N@zi show trial Day 4 ….. dammmm you Dim (wits) look criminal

    2. @Stunt Panda btw …did you love New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo admits to cover up and lying about number of Gamma deaths at nursing home? …have you had enough lies yet gesh …

    3. @Lightnin’ Dawn be fair to yourself … you think its ok Dim prosecutor caught lying about Trump video time lines PLUS modifying Trumps Emails …Plus caught editing video’s to change context

    4. @Daniel Morse Wow, more whataboutism. You can’t defend a wrong by saying other people did wrong. That’s like a kid caught with their hand in the cookie jar saying, “But Timmy broke the lamp in the living room!” It doesn’t excuse their crime. Grow up and learn to accept responsibility.

    5. @Daniel Morse and if you have been watching you would go back to any news channel and see the same tweets on screen the day of with the date the prosecutors presented the only people changing dates were the three who met with trump and lawyers yesterday cause otherwise they have no fight and they knew it. Come on even you can see a defense has 16 hrs to present a evidence and fight for there client they did it in 2hrs and 17 min repeating the same argument over and over. They had nothing to fight with because there was nothing they could present even the videos of people saying one word was ridiculous and a waste of time and money. And I personally have seen many trials but this was no regular trial so the exact rule does not apply because if they did then Lindsey Graham Ted Cruz and mike lee would have been in contempt of court for meeting with Former president and his lawyers while sitting on a jury.

    1. Nothing worse than an intellectually challenged propagandist posing as a journalist. Trump’s defense team didn’t say they weren’t given the video at all, rather that they got it just a day or two before. Hardly acceptable in a trial where evidence is given ample time to examine. Nicolle Wallace has never been capable of reporting things as they really are and not through her cheap, completely biased and hate filled, MSNBC lens. The Wallace rag is just like the house managers that sprinkle some truth to what otherwise is a Big Lie. “They had the video too,” she claims, conveniently concealing that it was provided almost to them practically in the last moment.

      “We heard nothing, nothing, to defend the tragic consequences of Trump’s speech.” Hello, birdbrain! They showed that his speech was little different than so many political speeches and it could not have led to the results she listed since it was delivered almost at the same time as those things were happening. They showed that if Trump is to blame for those events then Democrat demagogic agitators should be blamed for the 50+ murders and billions of dollars of destruction caused by BLM-Antif rioters buoyed by Democrat cheerleaders. The Wallace rag is just as stupid as Raston who was indignant that VP Harris would not say that the violent protests of BLM will and should go on after a video excerpt with those words were played three times! Where does MSNBC find these worthless ignoramuses?

    2. They need to leave trump in the past his base is not enough to win anything going forward. This country is becoming more diverse everyday and holding on to this group of voters is a waste of time.

    3. joy mar teens …its. The billionaire cronies who OWN the Dems. They’ve always tried to hide their Millionaires in the Dems House for years by pointing fingers at Repubs with those stupidly hateful commie lies to Everyone, especially their own supporters.
