  1. Let’s be clear, the only reason we’re going through a 2nd Trump impeachment, is because republicans in the Senate refused to do their job in the 1st impeachment trial. If they had had the courage, integrity, and moral fortitude to uphold their oaths, and put the country and the Constitution before their own morally bankrupt party, we wouldn’t be here today.

    1. @David J
      THE REPUBLICAN ARE THE # ONE DOMESTIC TERRORIST IN AMERICA AND THEIR
      # ONE OFFENDERS ARE LINDSEY GRAHAM, MITCH MCCONNELL, MATT GAETZ,
      MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE ETC… ALL REPUBLICANS SUPPORTED DONALD J. TRUMP
      IN LOOTING THE TAX PAYERS MONEY BY NEARLY TAKING A TRILLION OF THE TAX
      PAYERS MONEY TO BAIL OUT THE WALL STREET TYCOONS DURING THE BEGINING
      OF THE PLANDEMIC. THIS IS WHY THERES NO MONEY TO HELP BENEFIT THE
      PEOPLE. THE REPUBLICANS CONTINUE TO BE DOMESTIC TERRORIST BUY NOT
      IMPEACHING THEIR TERRORIST REPUBLICAN DONALD J. TRUMP WHO HAD FIVE
      AMERICANS KILLED DUE TO HIS INCITEMENT AND HE THREW HIS SUPPORTERS
      UNDER THE BUS. THE REPUBLICAN TERRORIST’S AGENDA IS TO KEEP THE PEOPLE
      BUSY FIGHTING EACH OTHER WHILE WE TAKE FROM THE TAX PAYER MONEY TO
      FURTHER EMPOWER THE ELITIST RICH. REPUBLICANS TERRORIST ARE PATHOLOGICAL
      LIARS AND JUST TAKE NOTICE THEY NEVER EVER VOTE TO HELP THE PEOPLE BUT
      ONLY VOTE TO WITHHOLD THE PEOPLE’S MONEY TO GIVE IT TO THE ELITIST RICH.
      THE TERRORIST REPUBLICANS RUN ALL AMERICANS ALL ACROSS THE LINES AS THE
      MODERN DAY SLAVES OF THE UBER ELITIST.

  2. One would think the “bar” would be higher than that for a common Thug, never mind the President of the United States!

    1. @Max Johnson I think they should look into the role of Fox News in all this insurrection fever….it is a BIG money game . There is 75 million self confessed separatists. Cult members. ….

    1. You keep calling 70 million fellow Americans “extremists” over and over and over open up the borders flood in illegal aliens to compete for American jobs? You’re begging for a civil war

    2. @Richard Barry Agree that illegal aliens need to be regulated. Part of the problem is that businesses will hire them. That needs to stop.

    3. @The Tweatles Who’s talking about defunding the police…if im not mistaking the original comment was about Cult members like you still supporting Covid-45.

    4. The GOP is only thinking about numbers, not justice. The GOP for some reason thinks that it can’t win anything going forward without tRumps cultist base. The most perplexing thing about what the GOP is doing is that, they will not win even with tRumps cultist base. By now the GOP must have realized that their base is a shrinking minority of voters here in the country and yet they seem determined to stay the course and try to keep running interference for tRump. There’s no winning for the GOP on their current path, only lesser degrees of losing.

  3. Unlikely, unless Mitch starts using his brain, realizing that pandering to Trump’s supporters will simply destroy the Republican party faster.

    1. @Smacking Fades. Joe Biden quote” if you don’t fire the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating my son? you don’t get the billion dollars? That fictional enough for you?

    2. hopndon – Lol. Your idea of an insult is admitting that you want to watch people defecate in restrooms. Sounds about right.

    3. Barry – Yes we know. Trump was making money off the Chinese government using his influence of office, so you were instructed to say, “China Joe”. You’re a very obedient clone.

    4. @Richard Barry Remember when Trump pursued Ukraine officials i.e the president to get dirt on Joe & withheld foreign aid? That’s real.

    5. @Smacking Fades. and there was a lot a lot of dirt on Uncle Joe and Hunter still is. And because of that democrat-controlled Congress Nancy Pelosi Adam Schiff had a fake impeachment to divert attention from that whole situation…

    1. Well you keep calling 70 million fellow Americans “extremists” over and over and over again and then want to open up the borders to let millions of illegal immigrants in to compete for American jobs? You’re begging for a civil war

    1. Well calling 70 million fellow Americans “extremists” over and over and over again open up our borders to let millions of illegal immigrants flood into our country to compete for jobs? You’re begging for a civil war

    1. To bad we can’t banish him to a deserted island. Maybe the French would loan us Elba, where Bonaparte was sent. tRump should never bee seen nor heard from again.

    2. Nothing’s going to happen to former President Trump besides be happy your Chinese puppet president is in now? So see what excuses you come up for Joe in the next 4 years

  4. The presentation by the Democrats was fantastic, it reinforced my pride in our democracy. The republican side was an example of the standard GOP lies and falsehoods we have seen for all too many years. Sad.

    1. @Sunny I was speaking in hyperbole. But did you catch Chuck Todd’s latest analysis on Meet the Press? More Republicans now are college-educated men, compared to four years ago. It’s amazing, considering how much leftist indoctrination is going on at colleges and universities now. Men understand that they are being indoctrinated on top of the rest of their college education. Women, not so sure.

    2. @Adam Parisi you should be arrested too. I’m thinking people with these comments were at the capital on the 6th. You pos

  5. 44 TrumpQilicans still want to defend Trump even though Evidence is pretty clear he incited the Insurrection in Capitol Building. Loyalty to one person instead of country.

  6. They are deciding whether the person has the moral character to hold an office of public trust under the Constitution. It should be manifestly clear that Trump does not have that character.

    1. Nor the other 45 GOP senators and House GOP Representatives going against his impeachment. If it was a Democrat or Obama you could hear the screams from across the country. Smh?

  7. I’m a UK citizen his lawyers are saying it’s unconstitutional as he was no longer in office but this insurrection took place when he was still president so how can they say it was unconstitutional

    1. From Canada: Yes. Let’s park the erudition for a second and ask that simple question one more time. How can any worthwhile government just ignore the culpable actions of the progenitor of their government’s destruction by saying their founding document is so inadequate?

  8. Their are some senators not even paying attention to the proceedings, cruz, rubio, cotton, and others are a disgrace to their office. What? It doesn’t matter if people were killed, people were threatened with violence, violence against those protecting the Capitol and dear leader instigating it and just watching on television while it was happening. And after TWO hrs. calling his dogs off.

    1. @hopndon you certainly don’t know all the information, because trump was tweeting them while walking to the Capitol!

    2. @hopndon yeah, some people left trump’s rally early and started the riots, but he biggest part went after the rally.
      It’s not only about trump’s speech this one day it’s about months and months of lying about the election and saying “we have to take our country back”..
      My aren’t you full of crap?

    3. You refering to all those in congress that said nothing about the BLM and antifa riots !? Of all those that lost jobs , businesses and lives . Then yes you are right ! How so many of those politicians on the left said get in their faces , or how a CNN news anchor said show me protest are supposed to be polite ! Now I can go on and on but I bet you weren’t crying for them . But we know that’s different especially when ” The real President ” said go peacefully . Lol what a joke . But we know you and all these other rocket scientists can read between the lines .

  9. The Dems nailed. However they should’ve showed tbe Trumps partying drinking champagne and dancing when the rioters stormed the Capitol. In my opinion that would’ve put the nail in the coffin.

    1. @Spider Taylor What I saw was video of Trump with aides watching video of the rioting. We’ll be using that in the trial. Because he didn’t let the national guard help the D.C. Police chief.

    2. @sclogse1 I think for many of us, we really wanted that video to be true. But, on saying that, in the article from your link, Trump was supposedly in his private dining room for a number of hours, watching the events unfold on TV. That in itself is quite despicable. He did NOTHING for hours. I can almost imagine him with a big grin on his face, since he would have been out of the view of public.

    3. @Red Dwarf I’d love it if they could get a witness to talk about donnie’s ‘demeanour’ whilst watching the rioting on TV and how he was acting. Smeg!

  10. I’m kinda old and crusty but Mr. Raskin brought a lump in my throat…. so sad…. trump did this….

  11. Sends a cold chill thru my spine knowing this person is guilty and there’s still ppl out their supporting this kind of ignorance!!

  12. People are still saying “I don’t know how some of the Republicans keep supporting Trump?!?!” They stand with their Dear Leader because they were complicit, paid for and bought in the insurrection!!!!!! It was an inside job and thank God they failed!!!

    1. Hitler certainly didn’t rise to power without support from those that agreed with his ideology, as disgusting as it was.

    2. I think they support him for the same reasons many people support other despicable leaders. Didn’t Hitler have support? And Mao? And Stalin? Either they hold the same ideals, or they plan/hope to reap significant benefits from their leader/idol!
