Republican Defenses Break Down During Impeachment Hearings | The Last Word | MSNBC 1


On the third day of impeachment hearings, the Republican "hearsay" defense fell apart, as the Intelligence Committee heard from two first hand witnesses who listened to Trump's call with the president of Ukraine. And despite GOP claims that the call was "normal," two other witnesses testified that they had never heard a call like that before. Lawrence O'Donnell also discusses with Ned Price, Wendy Sherman and John Heilemann. Aired on 11/19/19.

  2. There’s *NOTHING* in American political history that *reeks of corruption* like *WHAT* #45’s *done* …even the infamous “Teapot Dome” scandal *DIDN’T* involve *selling out* American allies *TO* dictators. 😒

  3. “That doesn’t make it any less odious!” Thank you Chairman Schiff!

    Lt Col Vindman : “Because that was my duty” words that you will never hear in truth coming from the mouths of any republican!

  5. The Draft Dodger in Chief attacking a decorated war hero by calling him unpatriotic and disloyal? Says it all really.

    • David Raper Exactly!

    • @Eli Dicken That’s precisely what it is. How often does some real trailer park trash show up in the Oval Office, one that’s as illiterate, racist, stupid, juvenile, criminal and worthless as they are? He speaks their language and vice versa. The elite never accepted him or his corrupt spawn.

    • Spanky Bone spurs is immune to shame. He is not wired like normal human beings. He is a classic sociopath who, like his dad, is sinking into dementia. Why do you think there was the sudden hushed hospital visit? Brain scan. Republicans are desperate for a face-saving out.

    It’s actually much worse than Bribery and Extortion – it’s conspiring to force *a Foreign Power to attack the United States* through the Presidential Election – that is Treason or at least Sedition.

    • Absolutely, traitor and treason

    • Sorry guys, you won’t get him removed. You don’t even have an actual crime yet. Good try though, lol.

      @Sempi10 <--- Traitor Trump Troll trolling MSNBC with blinders on. Don't bother trying to sell your BS here, bc we have all seen and heard everything from before Traitor Trump & Putin stole the Electoral College. And try reading the Mueller Report Volume 2 for a list of his crimes there too - but ofc you won't bc you're either paid by Russians to troll or just a Faux News junkie. Sad.

  7. the only way trump & his gang stay out of jail is to become a dictator like putin ~ & never leave ~ like putin

    • @VtownJAMES – 3 million less votes does not a landslide make. 🤣🤣🤣

    • @Edward Dube Is that your considered prediction? I don’t put much faith in prophecy. You have about a 50% chance of being right, but I expect you’re pretty quiet when you’re wrong. Your guesses are no better than anyone else’s, 50/50 at best. We’ll have to wait and see what happens, this time. Unless of course, you’re omniscient, like nobody else.

    • @wickednwyld all illegal voters

    • @VtownJAMES – Remember Trump’s Voting Commission that was going to prove illegal votes? They found like 3, and 2 were for Trump. The Commission was quietly disbanded without a word after that.

    • @wickednwyld you realise how stupid you sound saying that

  8. Lt. Col. Vindman is the hero of the century.

    • Clair Duffy, no – what?

    • bh2020 : so is Dr. Fiona Hill. Thank god for people like Vindman and Hill.

      @Eli Dicken lol Pelosi the master legislator, and biggest acquirer of the mega corporation’s donation dollars for the democrat national party. According to her own assessment that is part of her biggest value to the Democrat party- that she gets the most corporate donors for all candidates. For herself and others candidates.

  9. Having to reassure his father at home that he’ll be safe…for telling the truth.  Let that sink in.

    • Marlowe Dugger | November 23, 2019 at 8:51 PM | Reply

      @VtownJAMES I just Googled and found out this mess is conspiracy theories. And Trump and Guliaini has been propagating the lie. The people that have died during Clinton. Was suicides. Lol. Hilariously funny. I have sense to research. Thanks for telling me where to look. I think you need to stop listening to that Trump and Guliaini trash. No where in the articles said that she killed anyone. Please go back and read the articles again. They are Conspiracy theories only But, who killed Epstein( pedophile) friend of Trump and Barrs father while in prison? Trump tries to say Hillary did it. In an article. Lol. Under Trump’s watch and( His )AG not America’s. That means Barr should be investigated for incompetence and derelection of duty.

    • @Marlowe Dugger you crazies love conspiracies and hate facts

    • @Marlowe Dugger the facts say men died at benghazi, keep your theories to yourself, foil hat boy

    Vindman is a good man. It is so sad that he is being put through this offensive behaviour by the Republican Congressmen.

    If I had a son like Vindman, I’d be sky high with pride.

    Lt Col Vindman is a hero in my eyes, he is a true American. God Bless him.

    • I agree 100% with that

    • @Jeannette Sikes trump’s grandpa was exiled from germany for failing to serve the nation his whole family is cowards. i signed up for 6 years in the marines what did you do?

    • Jeannette Sikes | November 23, 2019 at 6:42 AM | Reply

      @john norris NO one could be more proud of and great full to all (except you) of OUR servicemen and women and although I have not served in the military, my daughter has served in the Navy, after they paid for her college education, because she is a highly intelligent and beautiful woman, (she is a scientist) and as far as I know she is still there so BACK OFF. There are all kinds of weirdos out there that would kiss that nasty Trump’s $#@@$ if he ask them to (seems to me you are one of them), and one of those could be military. Because someone is in the military DOESN’T mean they are perfect.

    • Jeannette Sikes | November 23, 2019 at 6:58 AM | Reply

      @Douglas Daniel My daughter is in the military, the Navy paid for her college education, and she gave them 5 yrs. and as for as I know (today) she is still there so NO ONE has more respect for the military than I do, I just know Trump as the ability to find Evil men in all kinds of walks of life and one never knows what could happen. I have freedom of speech and I have not insulted anyone so I owe no one an apology.

    *Republicans call their party “the party of law and order” while thwarting the rule of law at every turn? If that’s not hypocrisy, what is?*

    • republicans are just mafia thugs now, I feel for these witnesses. They will need protection from trumpsters and MAGA shooters. Thats the state of the Republican party, a zealous, fundamentalist terrorist trump cult of personality.

    • YES! And looking the other way when we we’re attacked during our election! Even if you don’t believe it. What’s wrong with upgrading our CYBER Security and backing our voting system with anti- hacking protection and paper ballots. 400 bills still sitting on the Senate’s Floor! Wasting tax-payer money. YOU’RE FIRED!😡😡😡😡

    • They also claim that GOD is on their side too.

    • For Republicans, law and order never meant respect for the rule of law. It always meant arresting minorities for being in their neighborhoods.

  14. GOP trashing decorated soldiers to defend a 5x DRAFT DODGER!!!

    • The Army hands out badges and medals like they are candy.

    • @David F I’ll bet you didn t have the balls to go and get you some “candy”!!!
      Trump passed 5x on the opportunity to get some “candy”
      And PLEASE stop trashing the people who defend YOUR RIGHT to support a piece of human garbage, like Trump!!!

    • and an abject coward. Nobody has forgotten syria, trump’s gift of the region to putin, trump’s release of ISIS prisoners while stabbing our allies in the back.

    • @adamf663 Donald J Trump
      Founder of the new ISIS!!!

    “Pause” Steve Castor it’s a HOLD of $400MM of US taxpayers money for personal gain! We have corruption in USA he has no business in other country’s corruption!

  16. The GOP are just plain Disgusting Posers, pretending that they are working for the American People.

  17. A draft dodger attacking a recipient of the Purple Heart. Sad. Very sad.

    Trump is a crook, a con and a fraud. Republicans are his enablers in dismantling American democracy for personal gain.

    • That’s kind of the problem. You guys call him a crook, but not a single witness has said he’s committed a crime, and they work with him daily. Don’t you kind of think that’s important?

  19. hey there America
    If this was a Democrat president he or she would have been impeached 2 years ago have a good day America

  20. Trump is incapable of putting anything or anyone’s interest above his own.

    • @Anthony J the integrity ship has sailed in the Republican party, that’s gone.

    • @cincysg
      It didn’t just sail – it sank with the loss of all hands.

      @John Jones I’m sure that Nazi Germany’s unemployment was low, too, when Hitler started carrying off, and killing Jews and taking their assets. I’m sure that Germany liked that for a while., too. I guess that would be okay with you, too!
