  1. THIS IS WHAT WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN HEARING FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS. DARK MONEY IS AN ENEMY OF LIBERTY-BUT Trump/Putin likes it!

  2. She is sitting there like a cold stone. She don’t care she has been pd well to

    • She looked concerned honestly. I still have hope that shes better than the repubs think she is

    • Stepford Wife.

    • I hate how her look never changes during this speech. It tells me that it’s not a legitimate expression, but an act. She’s looking at him like he’s crazy, and she’s holding it for too long. It’s a poker face.

      @E dark money in politics, regardless of party, isn’t a concern for you?

    • @Xeno_2GTHR She’s a very smart person, she knew this already. Her blank stare is the knowledge the argument is to complicated to convince the people she needs to get away with it.

    Mister Whitehouse, you have my respect for bringing that up.

    Look at her playing her “concerned” part. She knows what’s going on and she is on the republican team!

    Sheldon Whitehouse is always on point, and no one is willing to challenge him.

  6. This is huge! That’s crazy and people are so stupid they just go along with helping the rich! Crazy!

    Man ! This was the guy in school that Trump should’ve Copied off ! He does his home work! He nails it

  8. This has so little to do with Roe. It is about big money overcoming democracy. Big business overcoming people’s rights. Notice that the new Trump judges are deciding to allow voter suppression? No coincidence. It is about power. It is about money.

    • Exactly correct

    • Roe is just one of the cases that erodes the ACA but if they flip Roe, the ACA is dead long before that.

    • Bingo… So all protestors please stop breaking windows and statues.. coalesce to a functional group in one location, make this guy and people as intelligent/non corrupt as him generals and let’s get to work please..

  9. He just perfectly summarized what is so wrong in our government and had receipts.

  10. This is quality stuff, not the barr, trump, republican sideshow and clown routine we normally see.

    • Judge Amy should recuse herself. Why sully her future reputation by being nominated by a criminal incompetent president, confirmed by a hypocritical lying Senate? Is being a Justice really worth a lifelong stain?

      Pointless Matter Nah, it’s Christian that’s the moron. lmao

      spaxxed Ted Cruz is simply a spineless eunuch. Never saw anyone grovel like he did with Conald Trump. Two worthless politicians who need to be fired by the People!

    • @spaxxed “no hope”

      Why don’t you answer the question? What did Cruz say that so invalidated Whitehouse, and caused you gush over Cruz so obscenely?

    • @Daryl H You answered your own question.

  11. This is the real right wing coup. Lawmakers groomed to legalise corporate corruption.

  12. REPUBLICANS: LOOK AT THE DEEP STATE EVERYONE

    *WHILE FILLING THEIR POCKETS WITH DARK MONEY

  13. Republicans think they are clever for screwing people over.

      WHEN YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH IT UNTIL NOVEMBER 3RD💯💯💯💯💯💯😷😷😷😷😷😷

    • If the Democrats do take all three branches they need to really show some nerve and put in a bunch of sweeping reforms to prevent another Trump/McConnell from happening. They’ve exploited unwritten agreements, so write them.

    • ANTHONY JOHNSON | October 13, 2020 at 7:28 PM | Reply

      @Waterparkeu WE ALREADY HAVE EVERYTHING PLANNED OUT, INCLUDING THE 2021 ATTORNEY GENERAL CUOMO OF NY. WILL BE INDICTING FRED FLINTSTONE BILL BARR AND OTHERS. MORE OF THE UNREDACTED MUELLER TO COME OUT ETC. THE NEW ADMINISTRATION IS COMING TOGETHER 💯💯💯💯💯💯💯😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷😷

    • No, they’re clever for convincing republican voters that screwing themselves will somehow make things better…

    • Mister Flamingo | October 13, 2020 at 7:56 PM | Reply

      @Waterparkeu well… judiciary is out of reach so only parliament and WH are concerned. But the dems have not waited – take a look at HR1, the first law they proposed to begin the changes you mention. McConnell refused to allow it a vote in the senate. In a video game, that guy would have hypocrisy and scheming maxed out….

  14. This needs an Oscar winning cast like All the Presidents Men to bring this to justice. A great takedown by Senator Whitehouse. Dirty Supremes.

  15. this guys staff is good, republicans better be ready for blue backlash,..the elective wall is about to fall on them

  16. This is the real threat that most Americans just can’t be bothered thinking about or who don’t have the faintest idea what he’s talking about and therefore let it pass. This is where the ‘buck stops’ and this is why the republicans have pushed and pushed for years to stack the court system. This is scary stuff. It’s like watching a slow-motion car crash and knowing there’s nothing you can do to stop it. And the result is going to be catastrophic.

    • Correct. Excellent reply

    • @LOVIE PERKINS Typical trumptydumpty lies and idiotic statements. You have absolutely no understanding of socialism.
      Your comment parrots Fox nonsense.

    • @LOVIE PERKINS It is curious that so many people in the US call Democrats “socialists” or “communists”…
      No offense meant, but I wonder whether the differences between “socialism”, “communism”, “liberalism”, “social democracy”, “state socialism”, and so on, are left out of school in the US? Or why is it that you don’t seem to know what actual radical left activism looks like?

    • @LOVIE PERKINS you mean gnaw, not naw – the “g” is silent, lovie dear

    • You're Not Forgotten | October 13, 2020 at 10:59 PM | Reply

      @LOVIE PERKINS you seem to be fine with dark money in politics. Care to explain why you’re a bootlicker for corporate America? Keep in mind that the only good fascist is a dead fascist. We sent one of our greatest generations across the pond to put fascism down. Why is this history lost on you?

    We as Americans are losing everything by Money and Corrupt Politicians!

    • @mrm95 Biden says he will veto universal healthcare in the middle of a pandemic. It’s a travesty.

    • @Micah Burns I sympathize, but not voting can’t be the answer either. Given bad options, you chose the lesser evil.

    • @Micah Burns Regarding Biden vetoing universal healthcare; usually when politicians state something like that there is more to it. Oftentimes other things are crammed into bills and a sensible politician may say, “I can’t support this bill, because other terrible things are piggybacking on the legitimate issue. Here is my better proposal”.
      Not saying that is the case here, but i think that is more realistic than someone not wanting millions of Americans to have healthcare during a pandemic AND an election cycle.

    • @mrm95 nah, man, he was asked straight up, nothing else included, if he would support universal healthcare and he said he didn’t, and he would even veto it if it came across his desk. Don’t make excuses for the Dems. They are the other side to the same coin.

    • @mrm95 Check out Jimmy Dore and Krystal and Saagar. Always have great insight on the two party machine. Here is a good one: https://youtu.be/qDxuBtCuyB8

  18. Why isn’t this front page news across the planet? This is probably one of the best laid out and given speeches I’ve seen! This guy (I’m ashamed to say I need to find out about him!) just won the day in my book.

  19. This man absolutely has my vote if he decided to run for president.

    The Republicans aren’t just Corrupt because their stupid, but because that’s where the money is.
    Senator Whitehouse should speak more often. Powerful words.
