Sen. Murphy: Hawley Is "Engaged In The Attempted Overthrow Of Democracy" | Andrea Mitchell | MSNBC 1


Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) weighs in on expanding stimulus checks, telling Andrea Mitchell that “the legislative session ends in three days. So there is only one path to get $2,000 into the hands of Americans who are struggling today, and that is to pass the House legislation.” He also sharply criticizes Sen. Josh Hawley’s (R-MO) announcement that he would object to the Electoral College certification on January 6th, saying that “Josh Hawley and anyone who supports his effort are engaged in the attempted overthrow of democracy. There is no evidence that there was any fraud."

    How about all the so call “lawyers ” lose their law licence.

  2. The only way that Mitch puts forth this $2,000 legislation bill is to add $2 Trillions for the 1% super rich. Fire Moscow Mitch, Georgia…

  3. Republicans like SOB Mitch are always Roadblocker in the way of Prosperity. This is BS that one Senator from backward state kentucky hold the whole country hostage.

  4. Every single person who signs on to the coup attempt should be CENSURED, including Senators. It might not pass in the Senate, but the House can do it, because Censure only requires a majority vote. While it may seem minor, these Congressmen will be unable to serve on any committee thereby taking away their power in Congress.

  5. Moscow Mitch is one of the biggest obstructionist in american history.
    Term limits anyone?

    • @Kristin Kimberly Did not mean to leave out Illinois. Just mentioned the few I knew for sure which subsidize to help those southern states that complain and do nothing to get rid of those politicians who are there in office to exploit their own voters just to put money in their pockets. Like Mitch all these years in office and he has done nothing to help Kentucky!!

      They do have term limits, it’s called the voters.. That’s the problem with this country.. People just vote party line and don’t even know what the person stands for. We need to change our education system to teach about elections and not party.. Think about if we had a 2 term limit.. Look at all the damage that person can do because they are corrupt and know they have a limited amount of time.. That’s how McConnell and Pelosi keep winning without debating, without saying what they stand for.. They both won easily because WE THE PEOPLE in this country are the problem..

      “Term limits anyone?” Not me!
      This is exactly the takeaway the right wants you to have. It means rookies to rubber-stamp ALEC, NRA et al rather than pros who know the ropes, eg., Pelosi. A singularly poor path to embark on. I’m not kidding or exaggerating, this is part of the long game they play.

      @Richard Russell The Democratic Party has easily enough variation to form two parties, if not three.

  6. “Thanks again, Kentucky.” -a dying America

    • @ArizonaWillful its not so much IQ but a serious lack of education in Kentucky City , they were unable to fund a FULL school year like the rest of the nation for the last several years . The first time my friend told me about this then praised how low her taxes were compared to CA i had to point out the long term consequences of ‘not really’ fiscal conservativeism. If they were really fiscally conservative then they would make LONG term investments that pay off over time. instead they have areas in that state where sewage is running along besides peoples homes.The infrastructure is so broken due to lack of investment in it that the state cannot provide the very least of sanitation to its citizens.

    • @Llynnyia I know it’s not your fault. I know there are critically thinking Kentuckians. My post was just a result of massive frustration when it comes to the destruction McConnell leaves in his wake. I’m sorry, too.

    • @ArizonaWillful Kentucky is outsmarting you.

    • @Wonder Wonderful It’s because he brings millions in pork barrel spending to a systematically oppressed state.

  7. Arrest them for treason.

  8. The fact anything is up to one man’s decision makes America no democracy

    Bring the filibuster BERNIE ✌🏼❤️💫

    • For the next 8 years vote blue big and early in every race in every state. Purge out the GOP with your vote. Simple.

  10. Mitch McConnell is upset because he can’t lie like the old days… When it wasn’t cell phones and internet

    • @Don The Juicer Tommy Robinson and rebel news lol, you really need to stop with the internet man, you’re sick.

      @Kommon Cents
      Whatever language it is written in now, it was translated from the Hebrew and Greek. With that being said, the ones translating or transliterating used words as close to the English, because the English language did not line up with the Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. Also, it was used as a justification to commit the inhumane acts *(Revelation 22:18-19 KJV).* Ever heard of the slave Bible? You believe your interpretation, I’ll believe mine, let’s watch and see how this plays out!

    • @Ricky Stansbury I don’t have a religious belief…best to you though.

    • Ricky Stansbury | December 30, 2020 at 7:24 PM | Reply

      @Kommon Cents
      You do some more research also, just because the books says 1619 you are not adding port time or travel time in Portugal, and other stops along slave roots. In order to get here by as you say 1619, they had to set out a date far before that in the old slave vessels. Right? Go back to the first slave trade before they got to America. Also, the Creator is omniscient *(Isaiah 46:9-10 KJV),* would He not know this would happen? Again, let’s watch how this recompense *(Deuteronomy 32:35/Romans 12:19 KJV)* come down from the Shamayim.

    • @Ricky Stansbury IMO, religion serves the purpose of mass socialization. I’ve done enough research to satisfy myself. My imagination isn’t as vivid to embrace religious belief stories.

    Some Republicans just want to go on record as being an enemy of democracy.

    • @Wonder Wonderful if this is true ,than its the responsibility of the party to purge them…but thy are supported by Traitors and will continue to do so…….

    • what part of democracy do you not understand? How can I explain it to you? Democracy depends on free and honest elections. There is significant evidence that free and honest elections are in peril. Your fellow citizens, friends and neighbors and co workers – people just like you and me – have come forward to describe that evidence, even though they have been threatened for speaking the truth. Anyone who FAILS to be interested in investigating that evidence – especially those who have sworn to preserve and protect the Constitution – is the enemy of democracy.
      Those who want to know what happened are not the enemy. Truth and transparency are not the enemy. Secrecy and intimidation and suppression of information and censorship are the enemies of democracy and freedom. This is not about personalities or parties. This is not about one election. This is about whether we ever have a real election again.

      @kate ringo sorry- there is NO evidence of any significant election fraud. We had a free and fair election and Trump lost in a landslide. Believing the lies of a dishonest President does not change facts. And what’s more: every state has certified the election results. Hawley is merely pandering to the base for self-aggrandizing political reasons. Nothing can overturn the results of this election. But it is always fun to watch these Republicans make fools of themselves. See you inauguration day.

    • Michelle Preston | December 30, 2020 at 8:44 PM | Reply

      What’s that saying? “Don’t interrupt an opponent when they are f’ing up” or whatever. Yeah, that.

    • @kate ringo Over 50 judges said no evidence was presented in court, even the Supreme Court which is predominately Republican, and 3 chosen by Trump, laughed at the lack of evidence. The voting machines that Trump’s lawyers said were malfunctioning, haven’t been used in a U.S. election since 2007. Trump loss the election by the same margin that Hillary loss, that’s life, move on.

    All of senators trying to overthrow democracy should be charged with sedition or treason.

    • The major difference between a democracy and a republic is that a republic is a form of government whereas a democracy is an ideology that helps shape how a government is run. Put another way: a republic is the system of government that allows a country to be democratic!

    • It’s how these decievers running campaigns as republicans pretending to be Republicans to rise up an Autocratic Party to destroy Democracy…


    • @Michael K So if you don’t like the outcome, you simply ignore it and endeavor to install your chosen ruler? I’m getting a real “1938” vibe here. Okay, carry on with your coup d’etat. I will be interested to see how it goes.

    • @Sheila Bush he means that we are a democratic-republic, not a democracy such as Indonesia where majority rules. For example. And no I absolutely do not support trump.

  14. Once again adult dependents are victims of “taxation without representation” as they were again left out of stimulus checks

  15. You need to hold them like Hawley ACCOUNTABLE!!!

  16. Dave Robertson | December 30, 2020 at 4:57 PM | Reply

    And why are these representatives and Senators is not being held criminally irresponsible

    • Will YoujustSTFU | December 30, 2020 at 6:22 PM | Reply

      For what?

    • christoph paessler | December 30, 2020 at 9:31 PM | Reply

      bc till now, they decide who is responsible for “acting against the republic”. Thats the danger of every democracy. And there are some GOP reps who want another kind of state, a different nation. Autocratic, racist and white with many fascist elements to preserve power.
      But there is not a lot you can do against these people as long as they do not ignite violence. Speaking alone Hawleylike is different to prosecute.
      I am german, interested in politics and laws and my grandmas told me enough that I can more or less justify this observation.

    • @Will YoujustSTFU don’t worry; the answers on that question are for real Americans who believe in democracy not for you

  17. What they’re DOING is engaging in SEDITION!
    And should be prosecuted as such.

    • @Darren Lawson Nothing less intelligent than name calling. Even if you have a great point who would honestly listen with the name calling.

    • @Alyssa Sauder apparently you’ve not been living in the real world very long. No time for pretty words. If it quacks like a duck I’m calling it a duck. You yourself are guilty of the exact same thing but it took you an entire statement to accomplish what I accomplished with a single word moron.

    • Typical always accuse the other side of what you are actually doing… How about not making unconstitutional last minute rule changes? How about not stuffing ballots in Atlanta? How about not using private postal carriers to backdate ballots? How about not sending out millions of ballots in states with inaccurate voter rolls and then lowering verification standards to banana republic levels? I mean the ridiculously low rejection rates is all you need to look at to know that there is something wrong…The GOP won everything except the presidency even though orange man got 10 million more votes than in 2016…C’mon man
      i mean i could understand you saying that you don’t care because you want Trump gone at all cost but you can stop that clown show…

      @Will YoujustSTFU Free money? Am I paying taxes just so the government can pay Congress people their salaries for doing nothing at all? It’s not free money, it’s OUR money.
