  1. The WH just released a transcript from another call trying to muddy the waters and see what sticks. That way they can ignore the second call and say, “See! There _was_ one call where he didn’t commit a crime!” It’s despicable.

      If trump took advantage of our #ally. Isn’t that some sort of #war crime or #violation to #NATO or wtf? And since Ukraine is at war, and we are supporting that war.
      IS that TREASON?

      Those are our tax dollar’s going to war. Treason is obly valus in times if war. Haa trump violated those laws?

    • Yet he snubs him weeks later by not sending the Vice President to his anuagural.

    • Democrats WANT the information so they can twist it around and make it sound like Trump committed a crime……..

    • @BKD Vickers how about just giving it too Democrats? Unless he’s really hiding something. He is all in on spin. If it was just a little thing, it should be nothing burger for this group of swamp dwellers.

      @BKD Vickers That would require little effort……..

  2. In the 73 years of Trump’s unnatural life, he has never once served anyone or anything, other than himself. Even as president, he has only served himself and Putin. Yet this traitor has gone out of his way to impugn the character and integrity of our men and women in the diplomatic service and in military service. Men and women like Bill Taylor, Lt.Col Vindman, and Ambassador Yovanovitch, who have all sworn and oath to this country, and have been serving this country honorably for their entire adult lives.

    Karma is coming for Trump for what he did to Ambassador Yovanovitch and others. And Karma is an unforgiving, unrelenting, vengeful b”tch, that never forgets…😄

      really? Why would ANY DECENT human keep spreading disinformation? Are you really all that delusional? If you’re so interested in disinformation. Get a twitter account. Want truth? Seek documents & statements of witnesses. Stop believing Delusional Dementia Don. Think of the future. Not the past. & stop furthering conspiracy theories. IF you are a true American. Start thinking of our future freedom as Americans. Not frickin Russians. Because dude. That is where we are headed. Anyone with an IQ over 100 can understand this.

    • You are a mindless sheep. Hope you’ll wake up one day

    • @PeacockPoverty You are letting lying democrat leaders and the liberal media drive your hatred and your thoughts. Your imagination is running wild like it did during the Kavanaugh hearings. You are doing so much better with Trump as president and you know it. Trump or no Trump, as long as a republican remains president, times will remain good. Where I live, the state economy is booming. Also gas prices continue falling (currently $2.12 per gallon) Imagine gas prices at this level under a democrat administration. Their mission is to force the price of fuel to the moon over a 12 year period to force people to stop using it. The resulting domino effect would send the cost of living into the stratosphere. Think long and hard before you vote. Do your homework and do the math.

  3. Being that Trump THINKS he’s a crime boss he wants to keep his orange cheeta prints off the crimes. Then claim he knows NOTHING ABOUT IT or the lackeys doing his bidding.

  4. Because in America the “CEO” never gets punished, they always walk away with a big payout and another CEO position waiting for the screw up to arrive.

    • You’re right, unfortunately.
      And yet, comparing the U.S. with a corporation, it’s hard to imagine an ex-CEO getting another job after botching the job as Trump has done.
      In business terms, Trump’s failure is impossible to comprehend.

    • @JRG2733 Rubbish! TRE45ON is a multi-bankrupt. He’s a failed CEO 6 times over. Still idiots voted for him.

    Ms. Maddow, I love you but what the heck is up with those distracting tones of sound in the background?

  6. Ellen Salomonsen | November 15, 2019 at 3:11 PM | Reply

    Annoying music, stop that please

    Please ditch the background ‘music’. Very distracting.

  8. Your honor, my client is an imbecile ready to throw in his lot with anyone willing to say nice things about him or offer business deals. He is a man incapable of knowing right from wrong, and uniquely unfit for the role of president for which the American people unjustly forced him to accept. Your honor, it is not my client who should be on trial today, but the American people.

  9. The State Department staff are trained in diplomacy.
    The White House staff are barely potty trained.

    • @Julie Clark There are hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of laws in America. I have not read them all. Do you have something specific in mind?

      By way of example, I am not sure if it is still a crime to carry pliers in the trunk of one’s car in Texas.

    • @ruth depew look up what the definition of bribery is.

      When Does Bribery Result in Federal Charges?

      Bribery is a crime that may cause someone to spent time in jail, have fines issued or more severe punishments because the individual has offered or accepted something of value for an exchange in influence over or with a governmental or public official, employee or other person of power.

      Many bribes are in the form of gifts or money that provide a preferential treatment in certain matters. These crimes become federally-related when someone involved in the government is affected. Typically, this includes court appointed officials, agents in a government entity or someone similar. Some bribes are for favors in the future to be called in when necessary.

      Bribes are generally seen when someone in an office, either through public or political, has accepted a gift, money or other asset from another for favor. These bribes affect influence, actions and activity. Some are from owners of a company seeking certain leeway in business practices, 



      and others may be to change or alter laws that affect the consumer. There are usually no written agreements needed to prove these crimes with law enforcement and prosecutors. However, there must be some form of corrupt intention behind the action. Most of these cases have both parties issued the crime of bribery when discovered.

      Bribery Elements Explained

      In order for charges of bribery to be proven, it must be shown that there was an exchange of something valuable for either money or something else of value. This usually includes political or public influence or persons that have this power to either give or take it from another, but it could be others involved with similar motives and actions. However, the prosecutor trying the case must only show an agreement between the two parties exists. This could mean that a taped confession or a video recording of the arrangement might suffice as evidence to convict. This makes the defense strategy harder to prove innocence.
      In short, bribery requires
      corrupt intent which didn’t happen in the case they are trying to place against the President.

    • @Julie Clark Or more simply bribery is corrupt quid pro quo.

    • @ruth depew , I would say so. .. .They have switched from that Latin saying to ” bribery” because the word bribery is used in the impeachment process of a president but after they gave what was spoken by Trump it will have to be determined by the investigation. Even if he is convicted it doesn’t mean he will leave office. If Democrats think Trump is bad……They will be left with Pence IF Trump left but I’m betting he won’t because he’s a fighter and never backs down. It’s a waste of time…..

    • @Julie Clark If Trump is convicted and refuses to leave office, Christopher Wray will take the FBI in and take him out. Or the Secret Service will take him down, because at that point, he will no longer be president. Pence won’t dare step out of line, or his impeachment is next.

      The only one whose life needs protecting is Baron.

    Hey Ambassador Sondland,are you getting a good return on your 1million dollar investment oooooops i meant donation😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  11. vote in the senate will reveal the crooks and the patriots…God help us all

    • The name of every Senator who votes to keep this criminal in power should be collected and they should never be forgiven for what they did to this country.

  12. Sondland will give the truly damning testimony. He doesn’t want to follow Michael Cohen and Roger Stone + others.

    Stop playing music in the back ground

  14. I was watching and when Trump said he hardly knows the guy I burst out laughing, just couldn’t help it so very funny.

    • Judas.

    • But the poorly educated take him seriously. Which is a danger we all face
