  1. The so-called, “Craigslist Killer,” was caught, on video surveillance camera, coming and going from the scene of every one of his crimes, wearing no mask or disguise or any other attempt to conceal or obstruct his identity, and after his IP address linked all of the victims with his computer in his apartment he was able to be picked from a photo line-up by his first victim and arrested so he could be charged with Kidnapping, Armed Robbery and Murder.

    My point is that he was SO absolutely arrogant, his complacency essentially lead the investigators STRAIGHT to him, so they could make a positive ID and take him into custody.

    That was made possible by his clear hubris, thinking he was always the smartest person in the room, and that he could just outsmart the people investigating his crimes.

    That hubris comes from a Narcissistic personality, the same Narcissistic personality that Trump has demonstrated and that will ultimately be President Trump’s downfall.

    He thinks he’s smarter than everyone else, and that he can do anything he wants because he’s never actually had to face any consequences for his actions in his life.

    On the contrary, he has even seemingly been consistently rewarded for his behavior, good or bad. And that means it’s highly unlikely he’s going to change his behavior any time soon.

    He doesn’t play, “three dimensional Chess,” lol he plays Checkers.
    But, instead of playing by the rules he’s more likely to just flip the checkerboard up and spill it everywhere if he starts losing and go home than actually concede defeat.

    The whole ongoing impeachment process is going to be in perpetual danger of being muddled and bogged down in insignificant and irrelevant trivialities, just like everything else is when it starts having a political effect on Trump.

    He has a way of making everyone lose the forest for a couple insignificant trees.

    And, his spineless, sycophantic supporters in Congress, House and Senate, will spend all their time and energy to keep the circumstances surrounding the wrongdoing of the President as muddled up with smoke as they can, rather than show a little patriotism and protect the Country from ALL enemies; foreign and domestic.

    • but it won’t work. it just adds fuel to fire (which is where we will be holding his feet).

    • Rewarded for his behavior.Explain these rewards.I have seen nothing but the opposite.He should be rewarded by the media at least a tiny bit but one network hardly educates the masses.Instead he has been robbed of any reward for the positive work he does which outweighs any opinions of his never Trumpers.Three years have been a battle.Show me these rewards.

    Well well well


    • Nope,still there. It’s gonna be awhile.

    • Trump won’t be impeached. Trump has discovered major corruption and will act to take these corrupt democrats out of office. Trump will win reelection in a landslide victory in 2020.

  4. If the Congress acts in a fair, legal, and honorable way, the American people will be with them.

    does anyone know why I can’t get full episodes of Meet the Press or anything but scraps of Ari Melber?

      MSNBC puts up clips of their segments. Usually takes an hour or two after the show airs. All of them are on the msnbc page on the second tab they are posted newest to oldest

      Rarely watch MtP. Can’t stand chuck Todd.

    • You’re lucky why would you want more

    Citizens need to rise up and elect new federal officials. Vote everyone out to show our power as the voters. This madness needs to end with this administration. It’s too much, year after year and I for one don’t want another four years of this bs!

  7. Even if trump isnt removed the rnc will not allow an impeached president to run under their party ticket. Johnson was not allowed to run again even though he wasnt removed.

      You can’t do that when trumps poll numbers are thru the roof! Political suicide for Republicans

    • @paulie walnuts ‘Cept for those laws to protect lawful US citizens from your unlawful agenda. Deplorable.

    • @paulie walnuts he only has high poll numbers amongst republicans….which has been dropping. He has never hit over 50% in national polls. So no…. His poll numbers will not save him. Even though the rnc decided to not to let anyone run against a sitting republican president…. If he is impeached, they will make an exception.

  8. yes! great discussion everyone!

  9. This is a battle between those who love their country more, patriots and those who love an insecure, whiny demagogue more, hero worshipers.

    18 U.S.C. § 201(c) makes it a crime to offer or accept a gratuity. A gratuity is a thing of value given “for or because of any official act performed or to be performed by” a public official. Like the federal bribery statute, Section 201(c) applies only to federal public officials.Aug 14, 2017

  11. One little problem… In the Nixon era there was THE news. People turned on the TV or radio, or picked up the newspaper, and they were confronted with THE news. Everyone had to watch, listen, and read about roughly the same account of the facts as they emerged. Like them, or not. Maybe a 10 or 15% skew from one channel to the next.

    We have nothing like that now. Now it’s just MY news. The left has their channels, blogs and other sources, the right has their own. Nobody has to ‘just deal’ with what IS anymore.

    Truth has become fluid, dynamic, and subjective.

    As such, those that want to continue to believe in their almost-elected spoiled man-baby of a corrupt New York real estate tycoon (who is, for some unfathomable reason going to look out for the ‘every man’) they never need be confronted by actual facts. They can just burry their heads in Fox news BS and keep the divide divided.

    The only real hope here is that enough Republican senators finally remember why our ancestors fought and died and decide to give up their King.

    Lastly, remember that nobody at Fox news is an actual idealist. They, like all news outlets, live to sell ads and endorsements. If the tide changes just enough, they will gladly start circling the carcass just like the vultures that they are. …and they will tell their loyal audience that they saw it coming all along.

    Fingers crossed that 20 or so men and women decide to put country over power… But don’t hold your breath.

      It’s actually worse than what you’re illustrating: Sinclair has purchased the major news networks, for virtually all on air broadcasting. They, Sinclair, get to tell the story, ad nauseam, however they wish. They own a huge swath of local news outlets across America.

    • @Andrew Flowers So true. Thank you for that addition. I was only focusing on the big national dedicated ‘news’ channels. Big miss on my part.

      John Oliver did an illuminating piece on Sinclair. It was truly nauseating. I highly recommend it.

    Fantastic segment. The Friday live shows are great.


  14. Audience histerics is so annoying

  15. Are they suggesting they may be doctoring transcripts? What a SHOCKING idea. Don’t they realise this is the Trump administration?

    • ASeasonedWitch | October 5, 2019 at 9:51 AM | Reply

      Anyone would attempt to save their butt. Especially bone spurs however. It’s been his style over his entire life starting probably as a young kid. Hustling even his own dad trying to swerve dad’s will toward himself leaving his siblings somewhat out of it. That didn’t succeed.

  16. Elipse = 20 mins missing in this case too.

    Why isn’t he impeached yet. Apparently “still investigating”. The prove is their, he admitted it, so did people involved, whats the wait?

    • WeedWhacker2010 | October 5, 2019 at 10:07 AM | Reply

      *”proof” and *”there” and *”what’s”

    • Impeachment is very tedious. You need to have a rock solid argument. What they’re doing is gathering as much information as they can before they move forward. Not that they don’t already have enough, but more couldn’t hurt.

      WeedWhacker2010 i accept i misspelled 2, but proof was auto correct. Also, what does my spelling have to do with this?

    • King of Darkness | October 5, 2019 at 11:07 AM | Reply

      ljcool17 thank you. I needed to know that.

    Why would bone spurs be so afraid? He claims he’s innocent. So prove it with all the docs. And be done. Make fools of all your political enemies. Bring out the tax docs, all the stuff. Take the lead on this and prove how wonderful you are bone spurs. Can’t be done.

  19. This is true NASTY patrician politics.

  20. Might end up with President Pence. Or are Democrats gonna go after him also to get President Pelosi?
