    I’m sick of it!!!
    This independent voter will NOT be voting for our local Democratic congressman again in 2020!!! He/Dems are wasting time with this impeachment crap – and have done nothing for millions of middle class families like mine!!!
    I'm no Trump fan.
    But this whole thing is so obvious…the Democrats are just trying to get rid of Trump – or damage him going into 2020!
    What he said on the Ukraine phone call did not rise to the level of "treason, bribery or high crimes and misdemeanors".
    And since when is Biden immune from investigation just bec. He’s a candidate???!!!
    Let the American people decide in 11 months!

  • Doug M

    DemocRATS hate the 1st and 2nd amendments. You love the Constitution when it suits you but otherwise you couldn`t give a crap when it doesn`t go your way.

  • Erica Gross

    He didnt change his mind years later. Bill Clinton impeachment inquiry and trump's are two completely different things. He's right if we impeach trump for this we could impeach any president for anything

  • john connolly

    Maddow is not a journalist,she is a far left lesbian who represents a small percentage of America with a big mouth ,they have poked the bear again so round 2 ,Trump will win again. Notice the glee in this fools voice meaning Maddow.

  • Derek Mills

    Propaganda that works best, works on the simplest of minds.

    DEMONRATS are nothing more than BLOVIATING purveyors of "PROPAGANDA".

    Rachel,
    THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS WORKS!!! If the Impeachment process was not in place, Nixon NEVER would have resigned! He had just won his 2nd term by a landslide. THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS WORKS!!! It removed Nixon.

    Andrew Johnson will go down in history as the 1st President to be impeached by the House and he was only ONE SINGLE vote away from being removed in the Senate. That obviously was not just a partisan thing.

    And, Clinton never should have been impeached in the 1st place since his personal CONSENTUAL affairs are none of our business to be asking about in front of Congress. Republicans realized this would effect their polls if they continued to try to remove him for something that had nothing to do with his Oath of Office. Therefore, the PROCESS WORKS!!!

    I wish you and everyone else in the media would change your narrative about it!

    Impeach! Impeach! Impeach! by a bunch of college professors who all hate
    trump who are all far left democrats and all voted for Hilliary
    Clinton who are backed by the main stream media who are 97% democrats
    without one Republican supporting them ? And they all hate what
    Jonathan Turley said this is not an impeachable offense who voted also
    voted for Hilliary Clinton but he mus be the one who has it wrong right?

  • Da'Chief

    Said it all when that elitist cow had to bring Trumps young child into the hearing – what a bunch of desperate, angry elitists. Scared to death of November 2020

  • Sean

    "well, there's not enough evidence to support impeachment…" … because this President, much like Nixon in the past, won't allow aides to testify, or submit relevant subpoenaed documents. So, yeah, when the subject of the investigation refuses to comply, you're gonna get a flawed result… but not a totally bad one either.

  • bigbangnone

    There was no criteria identified to support the Russian Collusion Dossiers VALIDITY, nor Congressional nor FBI nor Judicial investigation of Russian Collusion validity itself, then this clearly indicates that there is a conspiracy at the top levels of Government and within the top levels Security Departments themselves, and that indicates a COUP.

    There has to be a major crime committed before launching these investigations for Russian Collusion or investigation for Impeachments, and if there is no major crime PROVEN IN COURT BY A JUDGE……

    THESE CLOSED DOOR TYRANNICAL DEMOCRAT VOTING MEETINGS ARE CLEAR TREASONOUS BEHAVIOR IN SUPPORT OF THE CABAL AGENDA TO ENSLAVE THE PEOPLE, THIS IS A REAL CONSPIRACY AND A REAL COUP GOING ON……WHICH THE USA PEOPLE NOW IDENTIFY AS A COUP ATTEMPT BY THE DEMOCRATS IN SUPPORT OF THE FEP (Financially Elite Psychopaths) which are all the Banksters, corrupt corporations who bribe our Democrat House to drop the voter agenda, and take up the FEP agenda !!!!!

    And through all of this, We the People can clearly see that the FEP owns the News Media Networks. Which is why the News only shows the death and the gun, but will not show that Democrats disarmed all those Gun Free Zones, and the Democrats were paid to allow big pharma to dope up most of the shooters, and Democrats forced our schools to be disarmed…..ALL A PERFECT SETUP FOR A MASS SHOOTING BY THE DEMOCRAT POLITICIANS IN SUPPORT OF THE DISARMAMENT PHASE OF THE COUP !!!!!! Dems are not even smart enough to think-up this disarmament tactic themselves. History clearly documents that the tactic of disarming all venues resulting in dead children and adults was used by Hitler to disarm Germany !!!!!

    And We the People see how the Democrats seek bribes from the FEP.
    And the FEP seek to gain like China by removing our bill of Rights and disarming THE USA citizens of our tyranny preventing/deterring capable rifles.

    Listed below are just two of the hundreds of tyrannical Democrat pushed gun laws which have resulted in the death of innocent civilians in their own cities with no crime committed:

    1) Democrats pushed the bad anti US Constitutional law called THE GUN FREE SCHOOL ZONES ACT which allow Gov buildings to be armed with AR 15's, but the bad law forces the removal of the 2nd Amendment from our schools and all city venues, which exposes US citizens to the known psycho component in each city and has now resulted in the deaths of more than 50 schoolchildren since Sandy Hook, but thousands more in many other city venues like the Pulse Night Club and Mandalay Bay Shooting down on Country Western Concert, and many more…..

    2) Democrats pushed these Red Flag Laws which Police are already using to target innocent people from Florida to California. An innocent man died in Maryland, when he was targeted by a RFL Police Squad who jumped him and shot him in cold blood as he tried to get back into his home after they loured him out by promising that they just wanted to talk !!!!
    These Red Flag Laws burn our 1st 2nd 4th and 5th Amendments of our bill of Rights !!!!!!

    There is a coup going on. And the USA Gov is being taken by Democrats bribed by the big money FEP. Any time that you see borders being forced open and non English speaking, no skill migrants being secretly bused in, and pushed up to ballot boxes. This means that there is a coup in action. A Democrat Coup.

    While you see Fake Russian Collusion Dossiers being pushed for no reason……
    While you watch the Fake Ukraine Call Impeachment…….

    The media is not reporting all the RFL squads busting into homes across the country and taking guns from American Citizen who committed no crime !!!!

    While you see people being fired for Free Speech 1st Amendment, and not using the Law Required Pronouns.

    Parents being jailed for not allowing doctors to inject their own children with dangerous vaccines and very dangerous gender changing hormones !!!!

    While laws are passed to throw anyone in jail with no due process for an undetermined amount of time !!!!

    While Dems create laws to allow them to route our tax dollars to family and Friends.

    While allowing Obama, Hillary, and now Biden and Pelosi to position their sons to involve themselves in corruption using tax payer moneys to bribe and deceive Governments or receive bribes from gov and corps !!!!

    We The People of America want arrests made and these corrupt politicians tried and convicted.

    We also want new laws to isolate our politicians from any bribe or gift moneys and eliminate them from controlling money hides like the Clinton Foundation. gifts or post term lucrative job assignments !!!!!

    The above practices is how N Korea and Chine turned communist, and We The People will not allow this to occur in America !!!!

    Now Democrat Politicians are attempting to enforce the coup at the the USA national level by importing Islam and Mexicans then promising them free everything if they vote Democrat while they route them to the voting booths within pre-planned states that Democrats want to coup particular US State Governments !!!!!

    Take a close look at the Minnesota and Michigan Democrat Party winners !!!! This happened FAST !!! I suspect that Merkel and her parliamentary ilk attempting the same to gain votes and remain in office.

    This California coup was successful. As Mexican Democrats now own the California Gov. Thanks to the Democrats forcing the California/Mexican border open for 50 years for personal profit and kick-backs to Democrats from the Hotel and Produce and other Industries……Your tax dollars have been routed to the biggest conspiracy in the United States. You pay for the Welfare, Medical, and Housing for Illegals brought here to vote Democrat and to steal jobs that that your son or daughter needed during college.

    The Dems say, just take out a college loan and your children can pay later. No need for your son or daughter to work their way through college as you did.

    Now the Democrats are pushing for all tax payers to pay for all college related college debt which is larger than the countries credit card debt.

    And the same corrupt Democrats are now shipping and flying in a concentration of Muslims into Minnesota and Michigan which was also a well planned coup of those states.

    Democrat Politicians are also shipping and flying Millions of Muslims into Californian and New York. As the coup in these states is critical to the Democrat treasonous agenda to disarm and enslave !!!

    The Democrat / Cabal goal is to enslave the USA and the Dems are building a demographic of Mexican Muslim and other migrant voters and the cost of this to tax payer will soon trigger an economy crash and Marshal Law – Which is what Democrats and the Cabal want – Bring forth the final disarmament and enslavement with the downing of the US Constitution for ever.

    VOTE !!!! And Remove all Democrat Politicians in 2020.

    A Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero – Addressing the Roman Senate in the year (43 B.C.)

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within.
    An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.
    But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys,
    heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor;
    he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments,
    he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation,
    he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city,
    he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear."

    What's Trump's crime? bribery? what's the evidence? hearsay? Trump was right. Biden, Burisma and Hunters millions should be investigated for bribery. That's no malarkey.

    Name One time when Rachel has Ever been right about what is going to happen? The biggest BS artist at MSNBC. and her ratings have plummeted by 1.5 million in the last 2 months, but she will not tell you that. Remember, tax report, Russia, Mueller, Stormy, Kavanaugh, and on and on. So now she has a new line to feed you. Snake oil to cure what ails you. She is not as smart as she appears. Should marry and raise a family. And stop wearing low cut black dresses all the time , it is a sign of mourning.

    Interesting how this posting has attracted so many of the usual ad hominem attacks from the Trump lemmings.
    From the WordNet dictionary:
    ad hominem: Appealing to personal considerations (rather than to fact or reason)
    (The parenthetical being especially apropos.)

    Say what ever you want MSNBC is racist worsen than Trump…How you women commentators
    treated Andrew Yang on the debate was pathetic….

    Let millions of illegals in. Let China in and steal. Let factories keep moving out and fentanyl in. Take guns away, ALL to weaken the country easier to dictate ‘
    WTF the king king has to do with USA’
    Democrats lean on Russia, support Isis & Iran. Last but not least CHINA what do they all have in co,,on?

  • Terri Muharsky

    "Sole power" to impeach belongs to the House of Reps. Sole = only and all. They do not need the "legitimacy" of a SC ruling in their favor to enforce lawful subpoenas. They do not need to justify their actions with bipartisanship. Bipartisanship would be nice, but everyone understands that the partisanship in D.C. is manufactured and enforced from the GOP – aggressively since 2009 but more broadly for at least a generation. For Republicans (by and large), winning has replaced governing, and loyalty has replaced duty. Impeachment is an exercise of Constititional authority. Impeachment is absolutely a necessary check on the balance of powers. Impeachment has nothing to do with appeasing the Executive's idea of how fair the process is.

    Shut up, Turley. Pure originalism only matters in an originalist environment, and legal authority is not solely derived from adherence to precidence.

  • Randy May

    I particularly like the part Rachel were the question was asked "Do any of the witnesses have factual evidence that is an Impeachable offence?" NO…………

  • Jason Faulkner

    this is the ACTUAL call transcript speaking of being made to believe something which is not..Trump: ''I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike… I guess you have one of your wealthy people… The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think you're surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it.''….what do you think he is talking about when he says ''get to the bottom of it.''??..corruption perhaps?>2016 Ukrainian interference??

  • Sonja Voigt

    I was hoping the US has a constitution that everyone must follow! Wrong, there are people who are allowed to become rich, richer, lie and violate the law without being punished! Poor America! Thank you, Nancy for the trying to sure and care the constitution!

  • Melanie Gray Robinson

    Is it just me, or does the 2019 John Turley look NOTHING like the 1998 guy?! Did they get the right guy to come? 😂

  • Rick Smith

    What is funny there is QUID PRO QUO without documents and blocked witnesses 2+2= 4 the blocking of the aid would help Russia and Trump wanting Ukraine to go on TV to spread dirt on the Bidens no denying that .

  • Sonja Voigt

    Each of us should distance ourselves from the internet! More hatred multiplied thanks to the Internet (Facebook, Twitter, Google, Amazon) leads to really stupid wars! I do not want to listen to politicians who promise me the perfect world, even though I know they are lying, !!!!!

    But the other three . In fact what is interesting is that all four never voted for Trump . Three were proven Trump haters and that is putting it mildly. This whole thing as a least as false as the Rachel Maddoc fake Russia job. This w

    What kind of professor cannot remember what he said in the past? It makes you wonder about his understanding of the law.

    This is not an impeachment this is a clown show the Democrats are going to be very sorry when it's time for election they all get removed from Congress and we'll never be in the presidency in a very long time to come

  • Eugene Gurskiy

    They are not Witnesses their history teachers and this is all bulshit and the American people see and these idiots are talking about constitutional when they're breaking the Constitution doing unlawful things without any evidence only hearsay b*****

  • ALAN 711

    I appreciate and look forward to watching Rachel every evening….her intelligent and entertaining way of informative journalism blows me away !!! The only problem is I don't want it to end…an hour is not nearly enough !! 👍

  • mistercohaagen

    How can someone who directly contradicts himself just because the president is of the opposite party be considered an expert witness for anything? He's just a partisan clown. They probably all are. How do we not know what the Constitutions laws even are, 243 years later? What kind of idiotic country is this?

  • Everblue Freediving

    Democrats talk about integrity, law, Constitution, Madison, accountability. GOP whine about procedure and fairness, declare the entire matter invalid, refuse to read or rationally defend the charges, and assert that the Democrats are the evil cause of Trump's downfall…..

    Nobody in politic is consistent except for Bernie Sander. 40 years fighting against corruption and for human decency.

    Impeachment in the modern era….screw the pollsters…let’s just do a twitter poll…then we’ll know how the American ppl really feel…it’s a sad day when I’d trust a twitter poll over pollsters…

  • Michele Mustafa

    Pamela Karlan, Republican, just insulted Pelosi's son. I thought it was off limits to target the children of politicians. Who's not surprised?

  • intuitknit

    I don't understand why the public's opinion about impeachment has anything to do with the outcome. If legal scholars know the constitution inside and out, shouldn't that take precedence?

  • Alex Hoo

    If Trump is impeached, considering how far the corruption has spread throughout the Republican party, who would lead the country?

  • Patrick Norton

    Democrats subpoena of reporters, Congressmen, and attorneys phone logs does that set a new court precedent for any district attorney to get phone logs of reporters and find anonymous confidential sources, or any citizens phone logs without evidence of any crimes. Can DOJ now target any citizens looking for crime like the IRS does? Turley was the only honest law professor when he said you're all mad. You opened the Pandora's Box on what use to be illegal surveillance. Time to subpoena all reporters phone logs, find the leaks?

  • Jeremy Digiammarino

    So what your saying is Turleys decision goes on a case by case basis depending on actual facts not media theory.

  • Richard Dastrup

    Rachel mad cow is being sued over the Russia collusion story. She is a journalist from Harvard. And she is being sued I'm sorry but that's really really funny to me. Looks like no investigation into MSNBC stories.

  • Pappy Chulo

    How is it so many well educated Americans can, in public, become a player in the undermining of democracy, of undermining their own country, their own flesh and blood children? Dp they really believe they will be giving a piece of the pie? That they will be a part of the "elite"? Why would such well educated people believe that they will be the exception to the rule, in all of recorded history, of being discarded and tossed into the heap with all the other worn out players who have served their purpose?

  • enhaxed X

    I have tremendous respect for your abilities as a journalist Rachel but I am mystified by the cognitive dissonance of you being a happily married lesbian and claiming to be a catholic.

    How can you possibly support a religion that sees your love for your spouse as a sinful abomination?

    Everything about the reality of catholicism is the antithesis of your reasoned evidence based persona and i sadly admit I no longer respect you as I once did due to the blatant hypocrisy of your position.

    how effing funny would it have been, if they had called President Obama to testify. He was a Constitutional Law Professor.

  • oh my

    Turley finally comes out as another U$ worshipper who shivers (how not?) upon "betraying" his "God". Easy to understand: God, for some, is all of a compassionless, ruthless punisher.

  • Eva Württemberger

    But how argued this other guy in the impeachment of Clinton? To be fair, that should be also mentioned. I really don't know, but I like to know. So please Rachel, tell us.

  • Karl K

    MSNBC is a propaganda machine designed to produce closed minds and it is succeeding. Prof. Turley gives a clear basis for his conclusions yet the intolerant Dems call for his being fired and issue direct threats.

  • Michele Engel

    WOW! This is an incredible piece of the story. I wish Maddow's show was required watching for every voter. So many insights that just don't get broadcast elsewhere!

  • Geri

    PLEASE!!! Put on all news organization TV a REPLAY of POTUS' oath of office (with HIS hand on HIS Bible) 24/7 as a reminder to us ALL and especially as a reminder to all POTUS' supporters.

    As turkey flip flops from his 90s edition. Nunes angry that anonymous to release video of Trump cheating on him with Rudy. The video is very explicit. Nunes must inform his wife of his infidelity with another man.
