'Truth Hurts': Dems Try Shaming Trump's Jurors In Senate Trial Showdown | MSNBC

  1. Trump was caught bribing Ukraine into opening up a bogus investigation into Biden and his son, while he and his own family members are engaged in real crimes in the White House.
    There needs to be a special counsel investigation into Ivanka and Jared’s business dealings (GRIFTING) while being members of Trump’s administration.

    In 2017, Joshua Harris, a private equity billionaire started paying regular visits to the White House. Harris, a founder of Apollo Global Management, met on multiple occasions with Jared to discuss a possible White House job for Harris.

    The job never materialized, but later that year, Apollo lent $184 million to Kushner’s family real estate firm, Kushner Companies. The loan was to refinance the mortgage on a Chicago skyscraper. It was one of the largest loans Kushner Companies received that year.

    An even larger loan came from Citigroup, which lent Kushner’s firm and one of its partners $325 million to help finance a group of office buildings in Brooklyn. That loan was made in the spring of 2017, shortly after Kushner met in the White House with Citigroup’s chief executive, Michael Corbat.

    Apollo executives, including Harris, had tens of millions of dollars personally at stake in Trump’s massive  tax cut for corporations and the most wealthy that was making its way through Washington that year. Citigroup, one of the country’s largest banks, was trying to get the government to relax its oversight of the industry.

    Kushner also had multiple interactions with potential investors from overseas. Kushner’s firm has sought investments from the Chinese insurer Anbang and from the former prime minister of Qatar. One of the largest investors in Apollo’s real estate trust is the Qatari government’s investment fund, the Qatar Investment Authority.

    Kushner’s firm previously sought a $500 million investment from the former head of that Qatari fund for its headquarters at 666 Fifth Ave. That year, Jared’s father, Charles Kushner, pressed a Qatari official for the $500 million loan from a government-controlled investment fund. Weeks after Charles Kusher’s request was denied, Jared backed a punishing blockade of Qatar, which was enacted by Saudi Arabia. Kushner’s family, which had struggled to get the financing to save their underwater skyscraper at 666 Fifth Ave, were suddenly bailed out by Apollo, which had business ties to the government of Qatar, one of it’s largest investors. Two weeks later, Sec of State  Pompeo told Saudi Arabia that enough was enough, and the blockade was lifted.

    Shortly after Kushner Companies received the loan from Apollo, the private equity firm emerged as a beneficiary of the tax cut package that Trump championed. Trump backed down from his earlier pledge to close a loophole that permits private equity managers to pay taxes on the bulk of their income at rates that are roughly half of ordinary income tax rates. The tax law left the loophole largely intact.

    China approved several Ivanka trademarks at the same time that Trump was agreeing to drop sanctions against Chinese telecom company ZTE. Days before Trump’s decision, China agreed to invest half a billion dollars in an Indonesia theme park resort linked to the Trump Organization through a licensing deal. A major Israeli insurer loaned Kushner Cos. $30 million just days before Kushner visited Israel to work on a peace plan.

    In June 2018, Charles Kushner attacked ethics officials for questioning Jared and Ivanka’s shameless and egregious grifting, by calling them “j€Rks” who can’t get a “real job.” He also talked about the “sacrifices” his son and daughter-in-law had made.  😲😂😲😆😄😂

    • @Tanto Firewater get over Obama. Do you even understand the word history?

    • A reeking load of regurgitated “whataboutism” as predictable as the foul stench in a public restroom:
      >>If you think that’s bad, you should check out George Soros payouts to the Obama Administration.<< Regurgitated "whataboutism" seems to be the only "defense" the nationalist minority got to offer these days. So incredibly inane.

    • @Jam Who Ignore Crystal…she is one of those fact free trumpanzees

    • @Kevin McNeil You are in a minority, that is growing smaller by the week.
      Yes, he may be acquited because of a TWO MONKEY DEFENCE – hear no evil, see no evil.

  2. What’s so disturbing is that this is the 2nd time that Trump has asked another foreign country to interfere in our elections. And if he gets away with it this time, he will absolutely do it AGAIN!!!  Because a sociopath like Trump, with no impulse control, who doesn’t know right from wrong, and believes he’s impervious to consequences, is 100% incorrigible, and completely incapable of being corrected.

    • @Kevin McNeil I see no joke except trump

    • @Kevin McNeil many more saying different now though

    • @Congressman Jim Jordan and she’s not the one we’re worried about

    • @Congressman Jim Jordan Hillary is not the subject of THIS impeachment.so stick to the issues here, or is that too difficult for you? Deflect, lie, and complain is all you do. Grow the f up and do your job HONORABLY, the one you are being compensated very nicely to do. And stop wasting everyone else’s actual efforts to SERVE the country with your incessant, annoying motor mouth.

    • @Kevin McNeil I’m not a Democrat but I know what a joke is, he’s sitting in the White House, I’m not willing to accept the few improvements he’s made in the country as a bribe to turn a blind eye to his illegal actions.

  3. It all backfiring. The GOP made a wrong calculation for a case that is plain nd simple for everyone to understand. The GOP does not provide witnesses to refute the Dems, they dont allow the Dems to bring witnesses and the GOP have no argument other than attack the process, all this is backfiring, their goose is cooked

  4. If the Republicans are complaining they are so bored because of the Democrats ( my party!), then just think what they go through when trump repeats himself over and over and over again. For the last three plus years all trump has brought up, over and over again is crowd size at his inauguration , his jealousy of Obama and Biden, his constant bragging about how he is the best at this and that ( all false and a joke like him), and on and on. These republicans who fall over themselves to lick trumps shoes must be bored to death about their golden cow, if what they’ve said in this video is true.

  5. I think they need more of a Game of Thrones style shaming.

  6. Republican I’m the senate are the ones they need to get to not trump . They are te ones saving trump one thing is to have all these evidence but those republicans that are protecting trump need to have their dirty deeds investigated . They need to break the republicans that are protecting trump go after the Jim Jordan and the ones trying to protect him even with evidence they just gona say it’s all a foax

  7. The dumpster is a CRIMINAL through and through.
    Shame on republic.
    Great job Democrats.God bless you ALL and Our Country.
    Who cares if it’s boring. This is our country.
    Sick people need to be held in contempt

    • the dems and their scams

    • Karyna Jabrail lets play a guessing game like how many jelly beans in the jar. I
      But you get to guess how many self serving Criminal Politicans in The United States. Winner gets to go to college for free with either Bernie Sanders or Fauxcahontis as your choice for Professor!

    • Shame dems cant prove any of these claims. Biden on the other hand we have on video doing it

  8. They don’t have any shame .

  9. Sent your petitions to senators that are protecting trump . Sent them letters call them out in public for defending trump .

    • I called but we should hit the streets if they clear him, because they won’t even listen to witness. What kind of trial don’t let you hear all the evidence. They don’t care about us they only care about themselves , and stealing for all of us, no matter what party you support .

  10. As a liberal Democrat I totally support this strategy. Repetition builds TV memes and we are peeling off a percentage point or so each day. I hope the Russpublican senators vote to let Trump off and then November will be their last too.

      Mike Finney Letting Trump off and then Trump losing the Election is the best way it should go down. Republicans will burn themselves and Trump will be voted out by the people. There will be no whining that way. I have faith you America. – Canadian

    • Because you let your bias control your beliefs. Power of the ego

    • He’s going to cheat his way back into office and that completely shreds the Constitution. He’s got to pay otherwise, it will only get worse.

    Imagine telling your boss, Americans, that the job is boring. Boss: You’re in the wrong job then. You’re fired!

  12. LOL…The republicans have no shame. They have shown they are just as much traitors as #3…

  13. Lindsey Graham has attention deficit disorder.

  14. If you need something more entertaining, watch comedy programming from all over the world making fun of our stupid president,

  15. has anyone contemplated how infuriating it’s going to be to have to listen to Team Trump spewing outright lies and outrageous defenses uninterrupted for 3 day’s straight?

  16. Well you won t let them bring in new witnesses and Documents

  17. I like how the Democratic managers are at least some of getting their wittinesses.
    Trump’s people in “ his Administration “ are throwing him under the bus.
    Your guys bone spurs

  18. Help the nation. Call your Senators.

  19. I like that statement “ yoked to trump “

  20. *This is Trump country🇺🇸, where on a quite day, you can actually hear the GOP corruption, eroding the very foundations of democracy!*
    *#NeverVoteGOPAgain** …and it’s no more than they deserve as (R)Mr Lindsey Graham said himself so eloquently back in 2016 “If we pick Trump as our nominee, it will be the END of the GOP..and it will be ALL our own fault! Trump is a kook a crook and a charlatan!” – Quotes from a May 2016 interview.*
