  1. I can’t imagine wanting a job that much that I would lose my dignity to defend Trump’s lies!

    • Trump is only a pawn to the Republican party. They are having a field day at his expense. Trumps first week in office Republicans was putting executive orders in front of him and he would just sign them. He didn’t have a clue as to what he was signing. Republicans just voted against a bill that would make it unlawful and illegal to allow foreign nations to interfere with American elections.

    • @ICU4life !!!! I pray that once the Congress impeach him some brave Republicans will put the country first and vote to impeach him.

    • @test Testing wow… you scums entitled. So now you want other people to solve your problems for you? Should mama england come back to hold the hands of every fully grown american to do their civic duties for you too? Don’t play dumb; you have the right to vote, to protest and to freedom of speech. Pretending like you can’t do anything is a lie you lazy morons tell yourselves to avoid blame, but you arent fooling anyone. Quit being spoiled entitled crybabies and solve your own issues, its not like the arrogant shithole known as america will take anyone elses advice anyways.

  2. Vote Matt Gaetz and those White Male Republicans out of the office. They started a mob to obstruct justice. This is not what smart and intellectual individuals do in a governmental position.

    • “Storm Area SCIF” was a clown show intended only as a distraction, but Congress should show them that actions no matter how stupid have consequences. Trumpists love their three-word chants, so let’s change this one to “Let us out!”

    • Check out Matt Putz`s mug shot. You just can not hide that kind of stupidity. He looks exactly as stupid as he is.

    • Yet more treasonous activity in response to the corrupt president being subjected to the law and the constitution.
      What next??? – Chrystalnicht??

  3. Republicans stormed the impeachment inquiry. It was for a TV series they hope to get syndicated because their political outlook is limited. The name of the pilot they were shooting was ‘The Walking Brain Dead”. They forgot to cue the theme song. It was suppose to play when they rushed in the proceedings. The song was ‘Bring In The Clowns”.

    Always informative whatching MSNBC…r.i.p Elijah Cummings 😢

  5. I swear a lot of Repubs are on meth….Gaetz is a nutter.

    • Please do not bad-mouth Republicans. Please do not believe all the lies spread by the Dems and media. Please support President Trump.

      They are media whores, particularly Gaetz, and they are attempting to distract the public from the impeachment inquiry. And, the more the media concentrates on their desperate tricks, the more harm they do to the truth and the process.

    • Skip Ad
      gaetz was arrested for drunk driving and refusing the breathalyzer test. There is a police mugshot of him. But because his daddy was a, I believe Florida state senator, at the time, he did not lose his drivers license like Joe & Jane Average would. So, yes, he is probably constantly under substance influence. 🤷🏻‍♂️

  6. How can someone who lies every minute, evaded taxes, bankrupted his businesses, treated women like 💩, had children put in cages and taken away from their families, let Russia and other countries interfere in elections, lies, lies some more, doesn’t believe in climate change, etc etc. HOW CAN HE BE A GOOD AND DECENT PRESIDENT BY THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE?

  7. This was Republican hypocrisy on full display. Trey Gowdy explained why most of the Benghazi hearings were held in private, and the Republicans had zero problem with that. Also, the rules that the House are using were written by John Boehner when he was Speaker. The Republicans just can’t handle being on the side that is being investigated. They are acting like spoiled children.

    As with almost ALL bullies, the fear is disguised as anger.
    Stand your ground.
    Defend yourself.

  9. The guilty very rarely cooperate.

  10. Repubs are trash.

  11. MSNBC is the news for the professional person. Fox news just a bunch of Trump apple shiners and table pounders.

    Great interview MSNBC and Rep. Hoyer. 👍

    End the madness

    • Americans be a Conservative and change parties like I did as our strongest power is to vote a speak how we really feel it’s time to put the right people serving our democracy for them to make commonsense policies for the majority of our poeple God Country and Constitution

  13. The House passes bills but McConnell is holding them up.
    Don’t blame the Democrats!

      @Shadow Mist Are you a total fool? Or do you want to fool and mislead others? Moscow Mitch holds back every bill coming from the House.

    • RenDi Supertramp | October 25, 2019 at 12:12 AM | Reply

      @wolfgang simons that’s a lie. He only does that if they are started by Dems or bipartisan.

    • wolfgang simons | October 25, 2019 at 1:20 AM | Reply

      @RenDi Supertramp You are right, Republican bills did he let through like the infamous taxcut – but what bills were coming from House Republicans since the Democrats got the majority?

    • RenDi Supertramp | October 25, 2019 at 1:37 AM | Reply

      @wolfgang simons Republican. Pshhh. That would require ideas and vision. The Banana Republicans have bereft of ideas since they figured out they could drag conservatives around by the nipples. Left nipple is called pro life and the right nipple is guns. They haven’t needed a actual idea since then.

    • wolfgang simons I think there are now about 240 or more proposals to be attended to by McConnell..Trump supporters accuse the Democrats of not working apart from the hearing but they are wrong.. McConnell needs to go.

  14. Arrest those obstructionist law breakers who tried to get in the inquiry just like they would any other citizens! They believe they’re above the law because they get away with breaking the law. One of the main reasons were at this point now. ARREST THEM DAMNIT!!!!!

    • Yes indeed T Howl,  plus a huge fine and put them behind bars.

    • Victoria Bishop | October 25, 2019 at 6:34 AM | Reply

      Yes, the House must use its power to ask the court to order the subpoenaed individuals to honor their subpoenas and order Trump to cease his interference. If they don’t, why do we need the House and the courts?

    • Victoria Bishop – it’s a fair comment. Bunch of jokes no regards for law…. the great LG made a great song and dance re Bill Clinton’s time now he changes his tune … are they any men of class …

    They are proving that the laws don’t apply to them like people have been saying all along and this is proof of it

    So the republicans area crying about rules they put in place themselves in 2015 😂😂😂😂😂😂.

      @Mimi Stern couldn’t care less not could care less.

    • You sound so stupid. Who gives a $hit what you think? Go away little troll.

    • Donaldson Pharaoh The only issue I had was that the Republicans were “investigating” the exact same event over and over again—literally 10 times. Do it once for one issue. If there is a considerable amount of new evidence that would justify a second investigation, but that didn’t. And unlike this situation, there was no evidence that Hillary did anything wrong (to the degree of impeachment) or criminal. Whereas this case has literally every person testifying adding more and more evidence to support the original claim.

  17. Still not getting the whole, “I am refusing to cooperate with a legal subpoena”, thing. How is that a thing? Can I do that?

  18. “I am disgusted by the conduct of Republican senators who pose as reputable people, but shamelessly hide under rocks instead of calling out the president’s horrendous behavior as the gross misconduct that they know it to be,” Don Ayer
