  1. Imagine having a TRIAL where NO WITNESSES and NO EVIDENCE is allowed to be PRESENTED!!! That is what Moscow Mitch and his Corrupt Cronies want for Trump….UNREAL!!! What a FARCE!!!

      Some soldiers were innocent on king St 3/5/1770. I think a king was so mad security he was paying for were murderers EVERYWHERE in media, it started a war for independence.

      He wanted to pay for OUR security in 1773.
      Fake Indians threw his tea 12/16.
      About three years. From the fake news. 1/2 MILE FROM THE INDIANS.
      KINGS HATE THEM TOO.

    • @Skip741 x Oh look another democrat PRETENDING to be an independent. Can you say Bullsh*t? I don’t recall you saying anything about when democrats accused the President in the House and would not let him call witnesses or let other republicans in the House PARTICIPATE.

    • This is not a trial. the investigation is done in House then Senate reviews case and votes up or down.

    A trial is about getting to the truth, through away all the other BS, to have a trial you need witnesses.

    2am “trial”? McConnell needs to be voted out November

  4. McConnel is doing what he is paid to do…along with Lindsey…
    And the others blindly follow,….

    • Truth is! What you should be thinking about, is the democrates have lost their way. And these people trying to be politicans, who haven’t even pledged allegiance to the people of the United States of America, should tremble and remember that you have not even began to understand what this republic is about. And you never will. So you may have been elected.But if you do not serve the Constitution of The United States.
      You serve no one but yourselves. And you shall perish for you have mislead your constituents. And that end ,so shall you.

    • @Larry Lopez meanwhile every democratic nominee all believe that the constitution should be nullified. Hillary Clinton even retweeted a quote basically saying that since the constitution doesn’t work in her favor that the 20th century constitution should be introduced to a 21st century paper shredder….THAT’S SOMEONE DEMOCRATS WANT AS PRESIDENT?? I’ll vote for a troll any day if that person shows even the smallest inclination of respect for the constitution

      No, the Republican Senate doesn’t
      get paid to
      ” blindly follow ”
      they all get paid
      to serve the people.
      I know it’s confusing
      because they’re
      more concerned
      with serving Trump.

      Call your Senator

    McConnell is one of the biggest embarrassment as a politician.

  6. When Moscow Mitch signed the oath book the ink in the pen he held must have been boiling from his devil hands.

    • STATES WITH REPUBLICANS SENATORS CALL THEM, WRITE THEM. THEN VOTE THEM OUT! THIS OPENS THE DOOR TO BE A LAWLESS NATION! I DON’T WANT TO LIVE LIKE RUSSIANS WITH A DICTATORSHIP I POWER. TRUMP DOES NOT HAVE US, WE THE PEOPLE, FIRST! CHANGE THE LAWS THAT WHEN HE IS OUT, HE IS TRIED AND PROMPTLY SENT TO JAIL!

    • So when democrats came up with the nuclear option, that wasn’t rigged for their benefit? hahahahah….. Finally the GOP is catching on to the tactics of democrats. In November 2013, Senate Democrats led by Harry Reid used the nuclear option to eliminate the 60-vote rule on executive branch nominations and federal judicial appointments, but not for the Supreme Court.

  7. *MITCH D I S G R A C E*

    • Not every Mitch 😀

    • Then,let’s not just sit and watch,call and group. Ban together,talk.Protest,gather petition signatures.Fight to keep your democracy,because no conscience Trump,no conscience Senate and no conscience Republicans,are demolishing it,right in front of you eyes.Don’t just watch,help save our future.

    • If Bolton doesn’t say what happened NOW BOYCOTT HIS BOOK!

    “I’m not an impartial juror.” — Mitch McConnell regarding the Senate trial.

    “I’m not impartial about this at all.” — Mitch McConnell regarding the Senate trial.

    • Eh. i don’t see any of us banning together to protest or petition.We are too busy watching,waiting.Ironic,Mitch’s time choice.It’s like it’s screaming to us,that it’s,’getting late,wake up,do something for your country or sit and watch,Trump finish gutting it out!!!!!”

    • Trump has a whole party of corrupt jurors. New meaning to the term “Jury of your peers”

    • I’m not impartial, I will do anything Trump wants

    Moscow Mitch took an oath to be impartial. He’s clearly violating that oath. He perjured himself.

    • Benjamin Romberg | January 21, 2020 at 5:30 PM | Reply

      @D SP McConnell may be wearing two hats but his vote will be the same, and that’s for trump

    • @Kevin Williamson so what you are saying is they are doing a trial the way the house did

    • Kevin Williamson | January 21, 2020 at 7:13 PM | Reply

      @jeff harris — nope. Not even close. Especially since there was no trial in the House. It was simply gathering information. Depositions. Acquiring documents.

    • @Dragonblazzer969 there’s no evidence being allowed IN, that’s a completely different thing from there being no evidence. There is a tonne of evidence, but Trump and his henchmen are fighting tooth and nail to not reveal it.

  10. Teflon Don and McDonnell’s Mafia.

    Criminals all…

    • We just watch and let it happen. We don’t ban together,protesting,or sign petitions. We just,’smh’,and move on with our day so here is our,no conscience Trump. We need try a new strategy,we may not make it to voting them out.

  11. The Republicans are voting for a dictatorship!!! I am worried about losing our democracy. Trump wants to be a dictator and the republicans are making it happen.

    • Fierce Phoenix I do agree that some on the “left” might want to go a bit far on gun control but you can’t be serious in thinking that Trump has acted in any way similar to any previous president. Also, Trump’s actions have created a lot of motivated voters and there will likely be another blue wave this years. I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t see another republican president or congress majority for a while.

    • This is the dumbest thing I have read all day…just wow.

    • Its a Republic

  12. The largest EXECUTIVE BRANCH criminal conspiracy in our history:

    “They were all in the loop”

    • @Billy Akin ​ Billy Akin I agree brother… When i see people say “what did he do ?” after All the known evidence, then all you can say is that there is a large portion of the country who are Deeply asleep and no longer able to recognize truth, even when its staring them in the face…..the trump followers are acting like they are in a cult, where their messiah can do no wrong

    • It sounds good to me, if we not be careful, folks will be soon calling us a Democrats.

    • Facts

  13. What’s done in the dark will come into the light!

      I bet you won’t hear about a 250yr anniversary. It’s less that two months away,
      But not the only place it gets its day.
      Five died. First to say bye was a black guy.
      King St. Where he lied. Someone yelled fire.
      A king was real mad at some REGULAR gals & guys. Murder was written a million times.
      In wars for independence you don’t cry.
      Find out why. As one man flies on our dime.
      Pg1 AMERICAN REVOLUTION is MINE.

  14. Why aren’t we the people marching for a transparent hearing?

  15. Hold him liable for abusing the oath to be impartial.

    Mitch McConnel is dragging democracy down in the mud!!! Vote him OUT NEXT ELECTION!!!

    • Krzysztof Jakubowski | January 21, 2020 at 5:53 PM | Reply

      @Jeannette Sikes agree 100% 🙏

    • @Krzysztof Jakubowski; I have thought of that, he’d pull some Marshall Law or something.

    • @Jeannette Sikes; With trump, Barr, Moscow Mitch they’d do something to keep power.

    • In my district for the last 30 years whites in this community will absolutely not release their grip on equality it feels to much like oppression and will surely vote him back into office just watch.

  19. People need to demonstrate, surround the white house.

    • Sure, democrats sure know how to put on a demonstration, march, riot, steal TV’s and the such.

    • By the millions!
