Sen. Shaheen: Hawley's Electoral College Challenge Borders On Sedition Or Treason | Andrea Mitchell 1


Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) joins Andrea Mitchell, telling her that she’s “hopeful" the votes hold on the defense bill and that the Senate "will, with a strong bipartisan vote, override [the president’s] veto.” She also said Senator Josh Hawley’s announced plan to challenge the electoral college certification next week is “outrageous. More than that, it borders on sedition or treason.” Aired on 12/31/2020.

    It is sedition and treason and if it isnt prosecuted its going to get worse.

    • @Dr. G hunter biden? The Biden crime family? Swalwell? Adam schiff? Michael Nader?

      Gonna investigate these guys too?

      Just try and be slightly fair, maybe a little fair, kinda fair, a teeny bit fair?

      It won’t be prosecuted & it will get worse. Just think, this USED TO BE a pretty nice country

    • Should have, would have, could have! American politics is the laughing stock of the world. You have corrupt politicians who show their allegiance to Trump, the king, instead of the public who they are supposed to be working for. Absolute joke. No honour, no integrity, no morals.

      Yes it is sedition and they must deal with It Not with idle words Time to take action against these people

  2. the Senate should vote to Censure Josh Hawley, and thereby disallow his challenge

      Putin must have something on him from the hack why else would he BETRAY his country

    • @josie Before you can sentence you have a trial where you have to find him guilty. He gets a defense where he gets too… PRESENT EVIDENCE

    • Sometimes traitors commit offenses in plain sight. Hawley is one example. The evidence, therefore, is clear.

    • @nodaklojack we have electric chairs and lethal injection in the United States. And now recently back thanks to Trump, the firing squad!

    • Emily Curewitz | December 31, 2020 at 5:12 PM | Reply

      there have been other challenges in the past. All they accomplished was wasted time and money

  3. There is no doubt this supposed senator is not serving the USA but some other country we should send him home.

      Duh, He’s compromised by the cHai-neeeze, doing Their Bidding – Not Trump’s!!!
      Bigly Trump Victory Celebration January 6th in DC.
      Be there or be a TDS square, or Communist, Globalist, Leftist, Socialist, Marxist, Deep State Swamp Creature, etc
      After today, I move on. If I didn’t change anyone’s mind, at least I can say ‘I tried.’ It’s not failure when you do something you truly believed in. A free, fair, honest, transparent election is one of them. Stopping Socialism, Democratic Socialism, Socialist Democracies, Communism, Marxism, Globalism, etc. is another. Stopping spread of pedophilia is another. The rest is everything a person of a sound mind would want. Have a Happy, Joyous, Wonderful New Year!!!

    • @Marke Unruh no worries bud. Happy new year!

      @Q Wins what kind of psycho taught you about the world 😂

    • That senator is a true patriot to contest the ballots major election fraud

    • @Jeff Hershey the fraud idea is only in Trump’s head, and even he knows its not true, but it serves its purpose he gets money from all these that aren’t bright enough to realize it. The only reason this traitor is saying this is that he hopes to milk all these fools that believe its okay to drink bleach and enhance his career, for the sake of this he is willing to transform our country into a dictatorship.

    Mitch can’t control his crazy Senators!! They are the ANTI DEMOCRACY PARTY NOW!

    • @Todd Hendricks And the paltry tax cuts that people under $70 or $75K gained in 2017 (can’t remember which) are reinstated in 2021. They were only temporary. The cuts to the rich were not temporary and will remain in place. Funny that.

    • And the cowardly dems will do nothing about these seditionists.

    • Should have, would have, could have! American politics is the laughing stock of the world. You have corrupt politicians who show their allegiance to Trump, the king, instead of the public who they are supposed to be working for. Absolute joke. No honour, no integrity, no morals.

    When Trump took his oath in front of the world that was his first lie and has not stopped since

    • When he took oath he promised to drain the swamp and now all the slugs are foaming at the mouth!

    • Ramon Gonzalez | December 31, 2020 at 4:33 PM | Reply

      Russia was CELEBRATING the same day as if Putin was America’s president being sworn in. Any reason you can think of WHY?

    • Colleen Dobbyn | December 31, 2020 at 5:03 PM | Reply

      @Tim Smith yes he did say he whould drain the swamp,an then he became the head crocodile and he became the the oath he took was the same as every President before him,you no the one that says he will protect our democracy instead he is destroying it,

    • True statement, I just don’t understand why he was not removed from office after not showing his taxes. Financial transparency should be a requirement to even get on the presidential ticket. No foreign entanglements either personal or professional unless completely transparent. Excellent character. Why did America put a cheater in office, he cheated on every wife he had was their first clue. Unfit from jump street.

    They really need to look at Pompeo. And Hawley is grasping at straws. These lawyers need held accountable. The BAR association has to upset at this.

    • The only BAR association that needs to be in DC is the Browning Automatic Rifle association, lol. Time for a cleanup and restart (both sides are a gong show).

    • Anti Hypocrisy | January 1, 2021 at 12:17 AM | Reply

      Hawley and Pompeo are heroes. They are going after Communists like the Germans in the 30s.

    • You cannot corrupt all

    • @PATTY PERRY Put a feather in your witches hat

    • Should have, would have, could have! American politics is the laughing stock of the world. You have corrupt politicians who show their allegiance to Trump, the king, instead of the public who they are supposed to be working for. Absolute joke. No honour, no integrity, no morals.

  9. Senate Democrats need to leverage their vote on the veto override to get our survival funds.

  10. i’d rather tax money go to the people instead of all these crooked politicians who are getting more than $175K a year

  11. Refusal to respect the democratically expressed will of the people is fascist. The notion that there is any legitimate basis for reversing the result of the election is a brazen lie.

    • @Mark So now it’s 90 million instead of 70 million? Where exactly did those new 20 million votes come from?

    • @Jean Alton My thoughts as well Jean..Anyway Joe didn’t cheat. He didn’t need to.
      I bet Trump himself cheated and can’t understand how, by cheating, he didn’t win.
      Happy New Year..20days..

      @Mark 90 million Americans believe what they hear in TV ads too, or else companies and politicians wouldn’t waste their money on them, and people would all make more intelligent purchases and cast more intelligent votes. 80 million Germans finally came to accept Hitler. A hundred million Russians thought Lenin was right. Most Venezuelans support Maduro. There was a chance to kick him out, but not enough Venezuelans stood up to do so. It proves nothing about the veracity of a piece of information that people can be convinced by the emotional appeals of flattery and sarcasm to believe the opposite. Why is it, though, that Republicans need to be coddled, but Democrats are supposed to accept Dubya and Trump, though one won by a vote of 5-4, while losing the popular vote, and the other won with the help, solicited or not, of the Russian government, whom he then spent four years rewarding for their help while losing by three million votes? Funny how Trump didn’t insist that there be investigations into his narrow wins in PA, WI and MI in 2016, if he was really interested in the legality of the vote rather than who won. Funny that he described his 306-232 (actually, 305-227) win in the Electoral College as “a landslide,” but finds Biden’s 306-232 win to be fraudulent. Well, there’s nothing funny or strange about it. The president and his allies mislead intentionally, because it is the only way they can win. Both sad and dangerous.

    • @Gnirol Namlerf A lot of words is not working. If you like massive mail in, that is like loving Russian Roulette and you know it, if you use your noggin

  12. Borders on? Censure him, remove him from all committees.

  13. Time to take the gloves Off!
    Time to stop mincing words!
    It’s not something like Sedition or like treason, it is Sedition! 😡😤 It is treason!

  14. If you actually believe this is about anything but money, I suggest you have a gander at Josh Hawley’s brand new fundraising campaign. _we will never forget_

    Pompeo is standing in the indictment line with the rest of these crooked politicians who think they’re untouchable, stay tuned because the people will have they’re say.

  16. ” Moscow ” Mitch McConnell is rotten to the core.

    I believe a lot of people need time to cover their Azz.

  18. DynaCatlovesme | December 31, 2020 at 4:04 PM | Reply

    Borders?! NO! The _act_ borders; the _intent_ is seditious!

  19. Given Hawley’s desire to ingratiate himself so he can be President when he grows up, I personally VOTE FOR TREASON in his case.

    • Barbara Roberts | December 31, 2020 at 10:13 PM | Reply

      @Dave Haggerty He is basically committing treason by supporting and defending trump who did not win the election Electoral or popular presidential vote…which means Hawley does NOT support our democracy but wants to keep a Fascist wanna be sociopath dictator trump in the white house! Wow…shame on him..

    • absolutely

    • Ppp0l

    • @Corn Pop So you believe the election was a fraud based on what this website and its author tell you? There is a problem with the data Binney uses in the first place. Where did he get 212 million registered to vote? The official number is 239.2 million eligible. That really changes things, doesn’t it? It is amazing at what length far right-wing ideologues will go to get their biases instilled. If he is so sure he is correct, why doesn’t he get proof and take it to Trump’s lawyers? Easier to just tell you what you want to believe on an obscure website.

    • @Anti Factoid
      The registered voter count is tallied from each individual state.
      The total votes for the 2020 presidential election is gathered from each individual state as well.
      There is a bit of a difference in the equation and the spikes are on record.
      If you can’t see this then that’s your own problem.
      The truth will always be there.

  20. It does not “border on sedition.”
    It IS sedition…
