78 Comments on "Why Sen. Ben Sasse Speaking Out Is Significant | Morning Joe | MSNBC"

  1. Woke up to read the whistle blower complaint. The crime and cover up is all there. Trump and Rudy are done.

    • @Jeffrey Meade guess you’re going by the talking points…because IF you had actually READ it AND knew the law, you couldn’t say that. So until you do, STFU

    • @Jeffrey Meade spoken like a true cult member see no evil hear no evil speak no evil where your master is concerned

    • golguin Sure. Same shitshow, different day. It’s called desperation

    • @Dave Waldon supporting a pathological liar with the most corrupt administration ever is called stupidity aka you

    • golguin – Is the whistleblower report a first- hand account of what happened? For credibility sake, I think the individuals who reported what they felt were concerns should step up. There are a lot questions I have before I can make up my mind on this. I think the allegations/ concerns are far too important to have just been “ passed along “ to someone else.

  2. He is very stupid.
    He is a sexual predator.
    He is the worst President possible.
    STOP HIM NOW. The era of the orange pussygrabber is over!!

  3. If Trump gets away with this. It means I can start my career as a bank robber, and maybe even start my own Mafia. Who knows the criminality is endless!!!

    • You mean if Joe Biden and his crackhead sons get away with it. Either you’re stupid, lazy, or just dishonest if you can point a finger at Trump, and ignore one of the dirtiest politicians ever, Joe Biden.

    • Brooks Yeager; You’d have to have been born with the “silver spoon” to escape prosecution. So the “bank robber” career choice would just be a hobby?

    • Go Ahead on Brooks Yeager its YOUR TURN TO BE THE FOOL IN THE FOOLS CIRCLE!!!

    • @COASTA LOECSTA Do not make threats of violence, even against Trump.

    • Oh no, no, no. You will go to prison. It’s only someone like Trump, because of his mindless supporters, that can get away with all of this. The laws are meant to deter the rest of us. Trump is “special”. (Note: “Special” is not the same as “innocent”. It just means he’s above the law)

  4. There is *NO* justification for *ANY* politician to not demand an investigation into this – and a fair and open one.

    • @Mark Haddox The Clinton Foundation has a 95% rating from Charity Navigator. Which means if SATAN himself donated money it went to the Needy. It wasn’t closed down for fraud, that would be the trump foundation!

    • Moscow Mitch, Lindsay Graham, Devin Nunez, Jim Jordan learned NOTHING from the midterms. The American people spoke in 2016 and they will shout in 2020.

    • @IMA RUSSIAN Go find the facts then get back to us. No cheating,

    • @Mark Haddox I did. It’s bollocks.

      @Mark Haddox China gave Trump a 500 billion dollar deal for a Trump resort last year! Ivanka and Jared are considered Government Employees and made an income of $85 million dollars last year! These are Illegal acts by Trump and his Family! Trump has again
      Colluded with a Foreign Country to Sabatoge a Political Rival in a Presidential Election except this Time Trump threatened that Foreign Countrys leader to Collude!
      High Crimes and Misdemeanors have been commited and the Evidence has been gathered by the National Security Investigation by Mueller and Trumps Confession on National TV! Trump has again Threatened the lives of witnesses against him witch is Again a another Crime, more Obstruction and Evidence Tampering involved as Well! Evidence on Impeachment will be Overwhelming in the Next few Months into 2020!

  5. This has always had the potential to be a very interesting show, but there’s one problem that keeps marring every discussion. And that’s Joe himself. I found Costa’s opinion very interesting to listen to – and then Joe cuts in before his guest is done. If Joe could only let them talk, this show would’ve been much more appealing.

  6. It’s not just the one phone call! Yes that is atrocious but just what he has already admitted to is enough!

  7. I just can’t believe how ‘America’s Mayor’ has fallen over the past 4 years.

  8. Joseph McGuire dni needs to step up to the plate because this is his moment and he knows it. He’s going down and he needs to choose whether he will go down standing up for his basic values or be a coward. Let The Whistleblower speak and protect them to the greatest extent of the law. William Barr should be investigated next.

    • @ritaperdue ….I saw the Nunes and was in DISBELIEF. Nunes $hamele$$ characterization of Trump’s, Barr, DNI displayed a new low for an Elected Official.

      The law on Whistle Blower’s Compliant is clear:
      A Written Complaint must be filed with the Inspector General.
      The Inspector General Reviewed The Complaint and Deemed it Credible and URGENT.
      Per Law Handed the Complaint to The ( Trump appointed) “Acting” Director of National Intelligence.
      Who ‘shall’ forward the Complaint to Congress. When the Acting DNI Maguire Failed To Forward the Complaint in The Specified Time Period.
      The Inspector General (DID HIS JOB) and Reported To Congress than an URGENT And CREDIBLE COMPLAINT had NOT been forwarded to congress by the “Acting” DNI.
      What, EXACTLY IS NUNES DEFENDING! His Campaign Donors Interest? Nunes should be REMOVED from Office. Along with McConnell.

      Vote them all out!

    • @ritaperdue
      Amazing how this administration taints the few decent people who have incredulously taken positions in it

    • barr needs to be impeached too.

    Cmon, trump obstructs justice in plain sight and “partisan politics” and “gathering facts” becomes the talking point. This is crazy making behavior. Crimes are crimes. This is insane. What did sasse say that was so “intelligent” and “moral”? Hes using othersideism, blaming those who know theres a crime and demanding that something be done about it. Repugs will never be satisfied. Pelosi betrayed the american people by saying that impeach,ent hearings would center on the latest crime of the orange king and nothing else. They are all scum and need to go.

    • I thought what he said about Dems jumping to conclusions to start impeachment inquiries was absurd. But Repugs love to badmouth Dems any way they can, it’s how they have taught their base that Dems are evil.

      Linda Scott yea, joe is a turd. Mika should know better but whatever its her miserable life not mine

    • The reason why they’re making about this one incident is because Trump’s and Rudy’s own statements are the smoking gun. Although his other acts will still be included in the impeachment articles. He only needs too be found guilty on one of those charges.

      DR Groce unless this is breaking news, that’s not what pelosi said last night. She said the only thing that matters is the Ukraine phone calls.

  10. If the Republicans turn on Trump its over for him.

  11. this is stuff that dictators do no wonder tRUMP admires putin and kim jung un so much

  12. OK listen! All of this crap about the Democrats jumping to conclusions and starting an official impeachment inquiry prematurely is BS !! It was NOT based on assumptions. It WAS based on both Rudy and tRump stating, on TV no less, that they DID indeed ask Ukraine to open an investigation into Biden !! This ….based on nothing!….as it’s been previously investigated and dismissed. Trying to manipulate the people AND the information about Biden “bragging” about shutting down the investigation is Bullsh*t !! He shutdown the PROSECUTOR on behalf of the US and other countries !! They CHOSE him as their representative. All of this is ON TOP of the 10 instances of Obstruction per the Mueller report!! WHY WHY WHY do all of these republicans and reporters KEEP IGNORING all the previous “high crimes” or “misdemeanors” ???? If a Democrat had done or said HALF the sh*t this fool has THEY’D have started impeachment loooong ago…….does Bill Clinton NOT ring a bell?? Screw the “they go low we go high” it’s time for some good ole “taste of your own medecine” !

    • @Dave Waldon the only thing obvious is you’re not the smart man you want to marry her off to.

    • @Dave Rivers “Republicans are human.” *Once upon a time Republicans WERE human. This new breed of Republican, however, is SUBHUMAN. And the sooner we recognize this the sooner we can fix it… if this kind of corruption is even reversible.*

    • America needs some sort of “Republican anonymous” groups set up.

      Facing up to your past, recognizing your actions for the damage they caused, getting free of your Faux News dependency…….it all takes time.

      “Hi, my name is [redacted] and……and I
      (it’s okay, take your time)
      …I was a Republican voter.

      It feels so good to finally say it out loud!”

  13. The problem is trump just doesn’t stop. Enough is enough already.

    • Pamela Garris The voices in his head won’t allow him to stop! He clearly belongs in an institution

    • T has been a bull in a China shop since he learned from Cohen (a slimy McCarhty-era attack-dog lawyer). Go to court and even if you lose, claim victory… I guess sealing court records is part of their settlement deal… Which encapsulates the loss, allowing them to continue. T keeps using this “winning” (at any cost) strategy. It’s got him to be President. Clearly it works.

  14. “ I pressured Ukraine over joe Biden and his son”- POTUS
    now let’s slow down all we have is his confession

  15. Look, joe, the big issue was that the DNI did not send the whistleblower complaint to congress
    Another coverup

    Trump has committed treason, Senator Romey and Senator Sasse! He needs to answer to this now!

  17. Why do Republicans seems to imply their party is above the law and or national security? This video is refreshing.

  18. Everblue Freediving | September 26, 2019 at 1:22 PM | Reply

    The GOP are not inclined nor capable of putting country ahead of party and personal agendas. White mercenary attornies, corrupt, and apathetic.

  19. We have heard Republicans talk about Trump’s actions being “troubling” for two and a half years. It’s just talk.

    Nixon’s transcripts didn’t match the tapes. Why would Trump be any different. Let the world hear the leader of the free world shaking down Ukraine.
