    Democrats are spineless – i am so sick of listening to all of the talking and talking with no action ! They are allowing a mad – man for a president to trample over them and this country !

  • Willie Speirs

    Who knows what's going to happen from now on ? – you really know he's cornered now. There must be more than a few now who have to decide where they stand with him.

    The Dems with hunt continues. There is no crime to investigate. Your desperate need to regain power has
    your party doing all kinds of crazy stuff like concocting a bogus Russia collusion sham to influence an election.
    Trump will tell all of you to pound sand and exercise Executive Privilege. Game over. You lose again.
    You party is about to take a huge hit as numerous indictments of corrupt Obama officials is in the pipeline. Uh oh.

  • Acro Orca

    King TinyBoneSpurs is definitely “breaking down”, no question Your Transparency, even manequin Melanias surrogate next to you senses your ineptitude and unfitness….

  • Alison Jansink

    Please SDNY prosecute Trump & his family after he is tossed out. Seal his indictments until the day after he loses his privileges, that he hides behind. Then make it public,

    There are two types of subpoenas that are issued in criminal court. Depending on the type of information the witness has, he or she will either receive a subpoena duces tucum or an ad testificandum subpoena. Latin for the term “records only,” the duces tucum subpoena requires the person to produce certain documentation or evidence relevant to the case.

    An ad testificandum subpoena, on the other hand, requires the witness to testify in court. In some cases, both subpoenas may be issued to an individual if the court believes he or she can provide useful testimony and documentation.

    It is important to know that, once you are given a subpoena or summons, you are legally required to attend the proceeding indicated on the document and serve as a witness for the case in question. Failure to comply with the court’s order can lead to severe penalties, including a warrant being issued for your arrest. In some states, you may even be fined, lose your driver’s license, or spend time in jail if do not appear at the proceeding indicated in the subpoena. With such severe consequences, it’s no surprise to learn that the term means “under penalty” in Latin!

    You people are in fantasy land. Trump will not be impeached and will be re-elected in a landslide. Everything you have thought was the truth from "Trump cant win" to "Trump will be indicted" to "Trump colluded with the Russians" is all lies. Any you guys buy it hook line and sinker. MAGA

  • Derek Slagle

    Wow! Classic politician. The host asked her 4 times what strategy will be used to force compliance and she dodges every one.

  • Michael Kirkpatrick

    this woman won't answer a direct question, very annoying… what can congress do if people ignore an order to appear?

  • Lenny Velez

THE WHITE HOUSE IS INFECTED WITH CROOKED SCAMMERS AND FRAUDULENT PEOPLE LIKE YOU SELF..YOU WILL GO TO JAIL SOON THANG GOD….YOUR TIME IS OVER CROOK.

  • Lenny Velez

    It's all exposed. The Law only applies to us, the ones who don't hold a high political office position. What's the purpose of the law if you don't apply it to everyone?

  • one of the kings

    Why aret democrats trying to after Trump without a creme or reason? Isnt that illegal,? Can u imagin someone going after you just to find anything they can to charge you with.

  • JoJo/Clem Kadilihopper

    Just more fishing expeditions on the part of Congress because Mueller didn't not produce what they hoped for…no collusion and no obstruction. Enough is enough!!!!

  • Ernest B

    😳

    YOu know, for the pEARls, of course✌🏽💥

  • kitkat75

    She spoke like a true politician. Notice how she won't directly answer the questions, just kind of hints at what might happen. He must have asked her 4 different slants to the same question and she wouldn't answer any of them point blank!

  • Mickey Andres

    Wow, Obama is guilty of constitutional crisis because he did that several times haha
    The fast n furious is still floundering in the courts because of it haha
    You twits are funny

  • Janel Myrick

    THE DEMONIC CRAPS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THIS DISFUNTIONAL STUFF. THEY COULD HAVE LET IT BEEN DONE. MR. TRUMP HAS A RIGHT TO PROTECT HIMSELF. THE DEMS PROTECT THEMSELVES BY LIEING, CALLING MR. TRUMP INCOMPETENT, EVERYTHING THEY ACCUSE MR.TRUMP OF DOING. THEY ARE SNEAKILY DOING EXACTLY THAT THEMSELVES CONTINUESLY

  • Will Hirsch

    My God what a whiny little baby tRump is! It isn't a good look. He sounds even weaker and more like a rabid rat lashing out at everyone and everything than usual.

  • Elaine Johnson

    How many attempts to commit the CRIME of Obstruction of Justice does Trump have to commit before he SHALL BE DISQUALIFIED and removed from office on impeachment AND conviction under Article 2 Section 4 Para 1 of the US CONSTITUTION??? Each and every attempt IS A CRIME!!!! There is no need to wait for him to COMMIT MORE CRIMES to OBSTRUCT JUSTICE!!! He's already been caught ON TAPE REPEATEDLY PROVING HE KNOWINGLY INTENDS TO continue to DO IT by tampering with witnesses and telling them to disreguard legal subpoenas, thereby suborning obstruction of justice!!!

  • Bobby Diaz

    Trump already FAILED at defending the US Constitution, he has failed at that every since he lied being sworn in… the biggest FAILURE AS PRESIDENT in history…
    When has the real Malanie Trump stood beside or behind trump making a fool of his repeating self… he usually leaves her standing all alone…

  • Kishan Rao

    You can’t treat trump like an ordinary president. He believes the rules and the law doesn’t apply to him. That he’s demanding no one follow the demands of congress shows he thinks he’s an emperor. Even if he’s impeached; even if the senate grows the balls to remove him, he won’t go. And it is so bad that if he loses in 2020, it looks like he won’t accept the results and he’ll try to stay in power past his constitution time.

  • Chum Khuvung

    From here on starting from Trump's presidency the WH will become the most corrupt and dishonest house of power in the world.

  • CHARLES STYRON

    this blonde headed has no idea of what she is talking about, she doesn't even know hoe excutive priv. comes from, must less how it is used

  • N S

    Hold Trump accountable for obstruction. Arrest Agolf Twittler for obstruction after he leaves office and send him to prison.

  • Aaron King

    feel like she has not gamed this all the way out. she keeps not answering the question. what comes next, and why delay? she assumes the courts will move quickly, but that's not a plan.

  • Seminole Nation

    They are trying to tell you waiving exec privilege to an exec branch investigation is the same thing as to congress. Lol MSNBC always dumbing down their viewers

  • Seminole Nation

    For over 2 years it was all about collusion!!!! Now……crickets. Nothing but obstruction. MSNBC and Democrats are leading their viewers down another mental breakdown

  • 刘宇龙

    对吧,NASA射弹的日期,和特朗普叔叔的行程比对,知不会控而拉入,可枉可牽制行动,,,S0。

  • Oroborus

    Maybe if MSNBC would stop hating on progressives these fake populists like Trump wouldn't win major elections . . .

  • clayton delanie

    There is Absolutely No proof that MSNBC has committed Journalism.
    If Trump and the American people DON'T challenge the Coup, It WILL happen again.

  • Trisha Meenaghan

    This punk is rotten to the core. Will go down in history as the Dirtiest, lying Present ever! My heart breaks for AMERICA!

  • T Harp

    Sooooo…whatcha gonna do about it?? She just doesn't want to say "the next step is to arrest on grounds of contempt". That lunatic of a president needs to go! But he won't, 'cause he believes he's king! Geez what an f-ing disaster.

  • bruce bell

    trump has thumbed his nose at the law all his life. In the end he almost always loses but it always takes years to reach that point. The question is will Congress let him play that game out of fear of being attacked by this man and his radical domestic terrorist base?

  • Tom Anthony

    What it appears that she is saying is that Congress is so weak that they have no idea how to act on an outstanding subpoena!

  • Rudolph Simmonds

    Democratic politicians! I've never seen so many people Collectively scared to death in my entire life. Cowards do your job!

  • Amanda Laschola

    It's time for the Dumocrats to get professional counseling to get over it the investigation is over!
    😂😂😂😂😂

    In two years I haven't heard one Democrat policy? Isn't that more important?

  • Victor Carter

    Democrats are clearly abusing their congressional power…Trump has the obligation to fight these abuses. The Mueller report clearly states that Trump didnt fight anything and was transparent. All information was collected 1 year ago. This fight is as bogus as the Russian collusion investigation…only meant as harrassment of the Trump administration. Clearly this women has bo idea what the constitution says.

  • John Hansen

    Donald Trump has had the power for more than two years, to ask his AG to file charges on any illegal activity they can find. The issue is that all of these so-called crimes are in his imagination. And no law enforcement agency has yet to find cause for investigations or arrest and the filing of charges. Trump has the phone numbers of all those law enforcement agencies. All he as to do is make the call. Instead he tweets and pontificates.

  • Bernard Rangel

    Trump has never read the Constitution and can’t spell subpoena so what do the people of the USA do? The man is greedy for money and has no morals so how do you get the man to stop living off your dime? 🤪🤪🤪

  • Big Nugzz

    Illegitimate angry orange dude will resign to try to avoid prison for him and his family. Happy 4th of July.

  • Pamela Davis

    Trump your a rig system why would you fight if your innocent ? Trump crime family trying to become a dictator !!

  • jcllings

    "We aren't going to give up on doing our work…" Democrats don't believe in work. They believe in Communism.

  • Docinze H. Martin (Satheist's Nightmare)

    Lol so weak argument… dems have no claim that bears any viability to get what they want but they very ager to play words games tho! Perhaps, saying things to make dems feel good has its uses nevertheless. ; )

  • Harold Briggs

    Do you like any other normal court go ahead with proceedings and find him guilty you don't want to prove he's innocent then he's guilty no courts whatever you don't look dress

  • ss

    Six months later, nothing happened. The Mueller investigation fizzled due to Trump not being subpoenaed. Now another scandal that may yet vindicate the Mueller probe.
