  1. It’s done. The GOP killed democracy. It’s now in your hands. If you fail to convince your friends and family that they should stop watching ignorant Fox channels, America will be a dictatorship on November 4th. Then, you deserve losing everything you love.

      @M Murph Trump said “read the transcript” – well, HAVE you read the transcript, or did you just blindly believe your leader? If you had read the transcript, you’d know he didn’t do what’s right for this country.

    • MoonShadeStuff How do you guys plan to prove intent beyond the shadow of a doubt? Schiff has done a great job at making a good argument based on assumptions. I give credit where credit is due but circumstantial evidence and opinions donโ€™t convict people in the U.S

    • MoonShadeStuff | January 24, 2020 at 6:23 PM | Reply

      @M Murph He obstructed congress in an attempt to cover up his abuse of power, this much can be proven beyond a doubt because he did so very publicly. He also admitted publicly to his crime and even asked China for help – I don’t understand what people are left arguing about. Then you have first hand witnesses overhearing the president’s orders, notes, messages, everything. He is still fighting tooth and nails to keep witnesses from testifying and just bragged about how he is not handing over evidence. Meanwhile the GOP is not setting up a fair trial, no witnesses, no evidence, a jury who is coordinating everything with the WH and is comfortable saying so publicly because they feel like nobody can stop them anyway – to be realistic, we won’t have a fair trial, so we probably can’t do much there, even with evidence this overwhelming. We have to vote him out in november, this sort of corruption can’t be allowed to continue.

    • MoonShadeStuff The House was supposed to challenge executive privilege in the courts but were too lazy. You do realize the democrats withdrew they subpoena for Bolton after he made a court filing? I understand you guys really hate the president but we cannot legitimize this political stunt. The democrats are doing an excellent job at getting their narrative and spin thoroughly explained to you

    • Democrats are so corrupt and STUPID ๐Ÿ˜‚

    There’s still an opportunity to turn this around, Republican senators. If being morally right isn’t important, America is no more.

    • @Russian Bot That’s laughable! Especially from someone who supports a man who has lied close to 15,000 times in less than 4 years.

      Hate to be the carrier of bad news but, go to so many other You Tube videos on this impeachment OR anything associated with Trump/Repubs/Dems etc and see the various divisions for yourself. Americans are just not in any “right, correct” frame of mind. Because many truly believe in corruptness and it’s justifiable worthiness(it obviously is an unworthy human act yet ppl…). They are blinded and believe they have a right as humans to be CORRUPT and lie and hide that lie no matter what the cost to self or nation. How to lift ourselves out of this quagmire of disillusioned hate is the great american challenge we face.

      @Russian Bot
      Sorry. But more hate and violence HAS BEEN SPUEWED by the right wing conservative crowd OVER THE DECADES guy than what you falsely state. And you know this so why play bs games with your own kind. And it has shown up so many times on the American scene it’s pathetic and shameful. You guys have been hijacked by hate AND YOU DON’T EVEN RECOGNIZE IT.

      @Russian Bot
      Yes he did. But that same man died for his false representation of a man who was not worthy of dieing for nor for defending. He died for defending Trump’s bs. And that truly is ashame. And considering both men became blinded in a moment of emotionalism AND LACK OF INTELLIGENCE to simply and kindly agree to disagree. But then, others would simply state they were being “soft” or “snowflakes” for being kind in their agreeing to disagree.

    Well said on every point!

    • @Doppler Overrun Gullible? You bought every word of Barr and Trump about the investigation! The Trump campaign did attempt to collude with Russia but failed, and then obstructed the investigation 10 times. Sound’s like you are the gullible one. Read the report instead of repeating what you hear on Fox news.

    • Dont be fooled. They hate you bro.

    “If right doesn’t matter,
    It doesn’t matter how good the Constitution is.
    It doesn’t matter how brilliant the framers were.
    It doesn’t matter how good or bad our advocacy in this trial is.
    It doesn’t matter how well written the oath of impartiality is.
    If right doesn’t matter, we’re lost.

    If the truth doesn’t matter, we’re lost.”

    • @Arthur Anderson This is another example of Democrats using “emotions” instead of facts. Sure what he said is true, right does matter, but did they do the impeachment in the House right? No, they did not. Right only matters when it suits Democrats agenda. Otherwise they turn a blind eye to it. That is a fact! If right really matters to Democrats then where is the outcry against Joe Biden’s quid quo pro against Ukraine which he admitted on national TV!

    • Lol!!!!!!! You all are nuts!!! TRUMP /PENCE 2020!!!!!!!!!

    • @mandark357 it’s call filibuster brainwashing

  5. Oh man….. Adam Schiff gives me hope that we might have a future. Thank you Mr. Schiff. You were brilliant.

  6. Bravo!

  7. They not lost they kno exactly what they doing. Selling out to hold they office positions in they so called “red states” scared to get voted out they comfy cozy senate seats by trump cult

      @Greg Inman
      And you are IGNORANT!!!!
      FYI Yes, I am lawful American citizen. When you speak nonsense
      try thinking first, really not so hard.
      Based on which facts did you presume on my citizenship? Or your hatred, ignorance, bigotry is the leading cause

    • Mariya Bahlova He means you are a pathetic excuse for an American and you will not be permitted to regain power in government.

    Adam Schiff is a 21st Framing Father. Amazing Speech. Trump can never be as smart and well spoken as Schiff. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

    • Schiff is not as likeable as Trump though. MAGA!

    • ur dumb af,you read the calls and such? or the laws? or just think someone is telling you the truth?(in a nation with freedom of speech,so i can lie to you and its legal,matter of fact in 2013-14 the gov made propaganda legal aswell so that means the news media is now allowed to lie non stop to push agendas and such in a declining civ. now if a group of people always vote in failed ideas known through out history well could they just tell you anything? are you a sheep on a finite planet with depleatable resources in a civ that used one of those non renewable ones to be as big as it is…everything has a end,and its always the same end and path ..why? cause no matter the system you are in….they are failed ideas…why is that? who rules over you,who makes your laws and who do those laws benift on repeat…you ? never you are a low iq pleb aka peasant. that I or anyone in gov or media can lie to and do with what i will. hope to make money off of cause you dont need it cause you are stupid cattle. using up water that on this planet we call earth need for food,that also seems to be drying up due to…way to many low iq peasants…that need to go.

  17. “I had a bigger crowd in El Paso than Beto” DJT, with an orphaned baby in the room, in a hospital, where people lay wounded and dying. That someone could say that is all that matters.

  18. Thank you, Mr. Schiff, God help America.

  19. Mr Schiff’s appeal to human decency made me cry.

  20. If you want to hear from witnesses, call your senators’ offices and pressure them. Go on the streets and demand what is yours by law – justice and truth.

    • The Democrats rejected the Republicans’ compromise that they be able to present witnesses if the Democrats could. Justice, truth AND fairness is what we should fight for.

    • mtav30 Make sure to let them know you are an obtuse fool when you
