Top Republican: GOP Is Blowing Away The Rules By Threatening To Expose Trump Whistleblower | MSNBC 1


House Democrats are taking ‘extraordinary steps’ to protect the identity of a Trump whistleblower, citing concerns Trump’s congressional allies may try to expose the whistleblower. In this news segment on The Beat, experts discuss the whistleblower news and criticism of Trump adviser Rudy Giuliani, and former Republican Governor Christine Todd Whitman says the Trump era has ‘blown away’ the ‘basic norms’ required for democratic government, and she worries this ‘will have long term damage’ to the American ‘people’s confidence in government.’ Aired on 10/08/19.

      @Sean Steele Bravely spoken for an account with no content or subscribers at all. Sock puppet.

    • Shinigami, the GOP Senate has been presented with a large number of bills, including election protection. All of these have never seen a vote. So the Democratic controlled house has continued to do thier job, that includes oversight of the excutive branch of our goverment. So unsure whom you are referring to. Sounds like your telling the story of the current GOP.

    • @Theo Fulk this is impeachment, not a trail. Look up the difference. You’ve got it very wrong.

    • @spliffsperlunk I most often speak bravely. As far as having subscribers, I’m not currently looking for any. Sock puppet? Is that what you use when you get excited? Good luck

      Guliani is a dummy and will do anything for power even if it’s wrong Mafia.

    This is how many years in prison Trump deserves:

  3. video evidence that you are either lying then or lying now or lying when and how it suits you or just simply lying all the time🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣

    they must have installed showers in confessionals

  4. INTEGRITY has nothing to hide. It welcomes “checks and balance” with no limits as democracy requires.

      … Which is why the Orange Man released the TRANSCRIPTS of the phone conversation. I may not like him one bit, but in this case, he’s actually been on the level with the American people.

      On the other hand, hiding the “Whistleblower,” who’s only knowledge of what transpired in the phone call is based on second hand information (yet we’re still supposed to impeach the Orange Man off of that?!?) is being kept hidden? Doesn’t Trump have the Constitutional right to to face his accuser?

    • @K J because she destroyed emails upon a subpoena and routinely plays dumb in court while stalling as much as possible. not to mention her husbands deceased friend in the virgin islands. also, the state department and doj regularly lie and cover for her. judicial watch had to sue for FOIA docs regarding her illegal emails.

    • *”Not a verbatim transcript…”*
      *Written at the bottom* of #45’s so-called “…word-for-word transcript…” , plain as day.
      This would be funny…if it weren’t *so* embarrassing for America. 😒

  5. Drain the swamp

    • Udit Gupta the dems are pushing swampy fake news just like they did in 2016. You seem to have forgotten the two years of swampy Russian collusion nothingburger. Well the dems are doing it again and it’s another swampy fakery nothingburger fake news! Trump 2020! Keep up with your swampy CNN viewership and see what happens (again)!

    • @Udit Gupta If you can’t tell the difference between reality and satire then you are living in a sad sad bubble.

    A repeated pattern of defense since Helsinki

    • Reece – And *only* ‘Russian press’ *were allowed* to film #45 and Putin in July…as Putin joked about “…getting rid…” of reporters.
      And #45 *laughed right along* with the former *KGB agent who rules over* Russia.
      *No* other American President *would’ve allowed* such insults to *our country* and *constitutionally-protected* ‘free press’.
      But #45 loves his -banker- -mentor- ‘like-minded leader’.
      *So* embarrassing for America… 😒

      @CynAnne1 Exactly!!!

  7. “It was a perfect call. Rick Perry made me do it.”

    It fits my long standing position that the coup already happened, we are, an occupied territory. Prisoners.

    • TheMaryam1891 | October 9, 2019 at 8:06 AM | Reply

      Yes the Republican already performed a coup. Sec State DOD OBM SENMAJLDR.

    • @Shaheeda William This demonstrates what you get when you have open borders.

    • @Susan A Exactly why Biden’s dealings with Ukraine and China present a clear threat to the integrity of his posdible presidency. Better to find this out now than after the election.

      Unlike President Obama, President Trump takes the integrity of our elections seriously.

      Remember when everyone scoffed when Trump stated that his phones were tapped? It was happening under Obama.

      Trump is being open with this.

    • @Susan A Congress had Mueller himself testify. What more do you need?

      When is enough gping to be enough? Looking at Adam Schiff anf Jerry Nadler (among others) enough will be enough only when Trump leaves. Until then, on to the next round.

  9. Kompromat, is a powerful tool!!

  10. That’s only the most recent travesty! 😡

  11. Again, play the clips of Lindsey Graham from the Clinton impeachment era every hour on the hour. Everyday. Play it until he wakes up from his coma brought on by sucking too much trump hot air.

    • @Blink Once on Sunday! Exactly! These cowardly hypocrites need to constantly be reminded of that. And they can try to downplay.. Project..and spin this however they want.. It will only be worse for them in the end. We can NOT let them get away with this.

    • hot air is not what he is sucking. enough said.

    • “If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed…….and we will deserve it.”
      -Lindsey Graham, May 3, 2016
      Looks like Nostradumbass was right! 👍

    • “You don’t even have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job in this constitutional republic if this body determines that your conduct as a public official is clearly out of bounds in your role,” the politician said. “Impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and integrity to the office.” – Lindsey Graham, but I guess, to him, this only applies to democrats, because Trump can do no wrong

    • Blink Once on Sunday! | October 9, 2019 at 11:35 AM | Reply

      @Suzy Q Another good Lindsey quote from December 8, 2015 about Trump: “He’s a race-baiting, xenophobic religious bigot. He doesn’t represent my party. He doesn’t represent the values that the men and women who wear the uniform are fighting for.”

  12. Throw impeachment out the window. Demand the 25th amendment!!!

  13. They don’t care about illegal!

  14. The American people ARE outraged!

    • red had mouthbreathers maga type people are not smart enough to be outraged. they are the 32%.

    • @Gunner DJ the progressive movement is bigger than ever and Bernie will win the election. When that happens the world is changing starting with the US. History will be on our side. Enjoy the embarrasment after Trump is impeached and his cohorts indicted!

    • @Randy Owens not sure I understood all of your comment…but yes the people who see this and A Republican from New York is asking why aren’t more people outraged by this travesty and trust me we are. Impeachment going to happen quicker than anyone wants to admit. Trump is gone by Christmas. After that bring the hammer down on Barr, Pompeo, and Pence!

    • @Derek Smidl Also in what states Yes there is about 1/4 the adult Voting age Americans that are ready to give up their Freedom for some kind of All powerful Government And they are mostly Located in 4 or 5 States they do not represent the general population of the 50 States and not in enough States to win the Presidency. keep this fact in Mind the State of CA has never one time in American History every had an impact on the Presidential Vote. What I mean is that not once has the EC votes from CA have put a President over the 270 mark or prevented one from reaching the 270 mark. American elects a president from all 50 States not from a few Over populated States. That is one of the Genus points of America that sets up Above every other Country that and the fact we are a Constitutional Republic. If you do not like that your an American petition the Government to Amend the Constitution. It has been done before.

  15. Nobody:

    Ari Melber: “Lindsey Graham is Kanye”

  16. Do the GOP really want to set a precedent that would allow any future democrat pres to be unimpeachable?

    Deceitful Donny 😈

    They need to raid their households like a common criminal

  19. So many swamps, so little time.
