    Impeachment is not about undoing an election. Impeachment is about keeping the executive branch on the right side of the law. The president abused his power and obstructed congress from doing an investigation to clarify his crimes. If repugs could defend him, they would. They have nothing.

  • Willliam Fish

    Justice Roberts is probably squirming as he will be part of this history and as the one presiding over this 'trial'. If it becomes a show trial then his and the reputation of the supreme court will be called into question.
    The only option is for the senate to find the truth. McConnell does not put the interest of the country first.

    It was the House's Job.. to call the witnesses… all they were allowed to. They didn't take much time… in a hurry for Christmas I guess. Did a poor poor job bringing charges and witnesses. It's NOT the Senate's job to allow witnesses. It's the Senate's Job to take the charges from the House and consider them… Chucky should have had Schiff do a better J O B . Remember there are 3 branches of Gov. Trump has executive prev. for him and the people that work for him. The House didn't like Trump thumbing his nose at the House's Subpoenas. That's for the Judicial to consider and make rulings on. Now Chuck S. is crying it's not fair, not to consider witnesses in the Senate. LOL The Senate takes what the House sends them… and THAT is considered. Chuck can cry and pound sand.

    To deny the testimony of the witness's who could exonerate trump is a clear admission of guilt on trump's part and for the republicans to double down on that is a clear admission of hear no evil, and see no evil. Clearly we can't say speak no evil.

    If caught in their mistakes and there is no way out of it, the narcissist can’t handle the vulnerability it causes. This is where we see something called “narcissistic rage.” The anger and rage are intended to back you off and cause you to stop accusing them. The purpose is to make you doubt yourself. It’s a power and control move to make you afraid to confront them again. This is why many people who deal with narcissists in their lives use the phrase, “It’s like walking on eggshells all the time.” Dealing with a narcissist is dealing with a bully. They strike back hard to try to save their own self or credibility. They use name-calling, making fun of people, putting others down, judging and being critical as a natural defense. The narcissist is just too insecure to do otherwise.Remove trump from office.

  • Dre Day

    Republicans already made there defense, i think Republicans are satisfied with the outcome so they will just vote quickly in the Senate

  • Mary Emanuel

    At least McConnell acknowledged they are guilty! McConnell just said in the last clip the witness will help them get the guilty!

  • mildred gomez

    Yes, impeach yes, impeach, his corrupted to the core, plenty of evidence, just look at his face and listen to the dirty lies, back to back lies, lies, lies, lier!!!

  • Scrambled Eggs

    One minute Trump's crying about unfairness and not being able to bring forth his own witnesses. Then when given the opportunity to do so. He declines and calls the process a shame and refuses to participate in his own defense. lol. What a clown.

  • kd gc

    The senators are obstructing justice. An impartial juror is supposed to be recused. The reps have already declared their intention to thwart justice. How is this possible?

  • john herring

    It should come as no surprise to anyone this is happening this way.  Congress is about to do what they were supposed to….oversidght and impeach…..the Republican controlled senate is going to vote to not kick him out…..HOW the senate does this will echo far down the road as these Senators start losing their seats as they get voted out by a American People that did not like the way they conducted themselves to protect a corrupt president simply because its the right political thing to do.Everywhere I look…..I see a larger amount of ppl that are against Trump then that are for him….that is going to bear out in the election.The republicans think they are saving themselves….what they really are doing is destroying their party because the American ppl will not tolerate this kind of corruption and saying corruption is ok from their leaders

    I just went through a bunch of posts here and saw absolutely no evidence to back up a single comment. All I noticed is all comments were backed by hate, jealousy and ignorance. Nothing more than name calling and bias responses and insults. WHAT THAT SAYS FOR YOU AND YOUR PARTY IS THAT YOUR NOTHING MORE THAN POLITICAL TRASH AND USELESS FLESH LIVING OFF THE WORK OF OTHERS. iF HE GETS IMPEACHED…IF ANY OF YOU EVEN HAVE A JOB…YOU WONT IN SHORT TIME…NO MORE RISE IN 401K…NO MORE STOCK MARKET GAINS…JUST TEARS FROM LOSERS AND HATERS THAT WERE MENTORED BY CRIMINALS…WHEN THE INDICTMENTS COME OUT…SOON…YOU WILL STILL STAND YOUR GROUND AND FURTHER PROVE YOUR HATE AND IGNORANCE…YOU CRAZY, PEOPLE WILL BE THE CAUSE OF YOUR OWN DEMISE SOMEDAY AND I CAN DO NOTHING BUT LAUGH RIGHT IN YOUR FACE RIGHT NOW THIS VERY MINUTE….

    Mitch McConnell is a component
    of the "Red Dawn" plan. He's not only protecting 45(*) he's working
    his own Kentucky 1st, Oleg Deripaska backed deal.
    This is an all or nothing play. Trump is just the Bob Barker
    MC.

  • David Wilder

    Democrats once again are letting the Repubs push them around. Repubs have no respect for Democrats because they always try to fight fair…stupid!

  • Paul von Hartmann

    #MoscowMitch is obviously a traitor to our country.The only question is, what will the toothless Democrats do about it? #RemoveTrumpNOW!

  • abraham oriowo

    The Republican might not be interested in allowing the witness to testify but the Democrat has to push the case for the witness for the American people to see and hear their story.   It is so important that Bolton should give account of his knowledge especially his claim that the White withholding of the USA Congressional aid to Ukraine of about $491 million dollars is like Quote "a drug dealing" those kind of testimony is what the Senate needs to make a fair and inform decision as to impeach or not to impeach D J Trump the President of the USA.

  • Matthew Stein

    If the Senate won't hear witnesses, why doesn't the House hold off on the impeachmnet vote and wait until they get the witnesses they want to testify. Screw worrying about it taking too long. If it runs into the general election, too bad. They asked for it!

  • Lynn Russell

    Impeachment is NOT UNDOING AN ELECTION: it is removing a president shown to be unfit for office, as the current fake president is.

  • John Webb

    Call on Lev Parness and question him in front of the camera after impeachment vote. Congress must continue this thing. You must know it runs deeper and deeper, and at some point it's gonna lead to Putin.

  • Lynn Russell

    Supreme court justice John Roberts will preside over impeachment trial: doesn't that make him the authority in this matter? NOT Moscow Mitch or Lindsey Graham

  • philosophicalreason

    If Trump was innocent he should want 10000 witnesses I know I would then there is no doubt nothing happened.If nothing else Trumps worse fears happened he will be marked as impeached for all time.

  • Julio Gonzalez

    Let the witnesses testify stop blocking them from coming forward! What is tRump hiding! Innocent people don’t act this way! They are trying really hard to cover this up why!

  • Jake independent voting shepherd

    Is there a news station that independents can watch. I think neutral people like myself are out in the cold when looking for news.

  • Jimmy Olsen

    This thing is one of the dumbest on the planet. How does it continue to win elections ? And that voice…… like fingernails on a blackboard !

  • Kia E

    What? McConnell said that if they called more witnesses that would not make him an impartial jurist because that would basically be hunting 4 evidence by calling forth people to testify to trump's guilt? So, basically, he knows trump is guilty & is knowingly refusing to call witnesses so as to withhold damning evidence from the Senate & the public.

  • Rickey Owens

    We are going to be saying,what Rodney king said why can"t we all get along I have White friends as well as Black. Every one"s like family to me.I know a lot of us Don"t like it but Mr.Trump must go for the good of the Country that I love and know you do to please do the right thing.

    THIS IS SO FUNNY EVERYONE NEEDS TO WATCH IT…. DEMOCRATS ARE WATCHING GOLF AND SLEEPING WHILE TRYING TO IMPEACH TRUMP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDQWKaDl3pk

  • Da ANSW3R

    The House Dems have been saying over and over again "the evidence is overwhelming"…
    If it's so overwhelming, then there isn't any need for the debate to add more testimony.
    OR…
    Maybe the House doesn't have the evidence it needs, and should go through the courts (the proper way) to see if The President's executive privilege is justified, or not…

  • Jasen Ericksen

    THIS IS SO FUNNY EVERYONE NEEDS TO WATCH IT…. DEMOCRATS ARE WATCHING GOLF AND SLEEPING WHILE TRYING TO IMPEACH TRUMP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDQWKaDl3pk you can sleep and watch golf while you are destroying someones life. its kind of funny to see how serious democrats want to show how much they hate republicans and the president.

  • Jasen Ericksen

    THE MONEY WAS PAID TO UKRAINE AND RELEASED WITHIN A FEW DAYS OF THE PHONE CALL. EVEN THE PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE SAID HE WASNT COHERSED OR PRESSURED BUT DEMOCRATS keep saying Trump is evil because because we overheard a part of a phone call playing the telephone game. and we will do impeachemnt for political gain because we dont have any reason why he released the funds for Ukraine.

  • Hugo Egas

    Medicine too the Democrats let's see how this turns out.
    If had the prove already then impeachment not say too Americans they have prove impeachment Trump.
    More talk and no action stop crying wolf.

  • Jasen Ericksen

    Awh the Hawaian Lady Law says they have trump on impeachment for Obstruction of congress…. this is not justice and theres lots of proof of that we as democrats will lie to the very end to impeach and cause a which hunt against trump.

  • Vanessa Sellers

    Where are we living??? You can publicly say you made up your mind in a jury case and nothing happens to the individuals? Where are the laws for this behavior? Especially for the ones hold high positions and know better
    America is so sad right now.

  • Ezequiel Orona

    Impeach the SOB . We want to see the sob get indicted and sent to prison… this SOB is nothing more than a mobster just as corrupt as Al Capone. A traitor to his country… trump collaborated with Russia to get elected in 2016. . Trump double downed when he put the muscle on Ukraine to help throw the 2020 election..this time honest people caught him cheating.. now you have to pay the piper..Wed. Dec 18 2019 judgement day is here for you and your criminal family. History will be your judge.

  • Lucyloo Jones

Get down to business, all of you and show trump he has to walk…head up or down…but he is overdo for a huge spanking with nobody defending him because he doesn’t want witnesses it’s not fair! Well trump, stand up like a man and say if you want witnesses..,,,, OTHERwise, sit down and show us and the trial shall go forward! Take sone responsibility for your trial or be quite forever more!

  • Scott Sena

    May other post Senate ‘trial’ evidence surface later that enters real courts. If the Republicans think the killing of judgement proceedings as a full outcome? They will be gravely damaged.

  • Jasen Ericksen

    the aid was never witheld because there is no obstruction of justice. plus democrats have hated trump this long now they are doing this just before reelection to hopfully get people not to like trump but it will just make more people upset with democrats and get them all out of the house and senate too.

  • Brett Nine

    McConnell belongs in jail. He is breach of his Oath, and working in the best interests of a foreign power. He's about to smother democracy in the US, on behalf of ????? Only one question to be asked is, who will benefit? Start the investigation of Moscow Mitch right there!

  • ozzrob

    It doesn't matter what moscow mitch did in the past, it won't matter what he does in the future, moscow mitch will be remembered in history for pandering to the narcissistic sociopath in the WH and shredding the constitution for petty political gain.

  • Zamora Lowe

    MOSCOW MITCH FIRST SAID NO TO OBAMA ABOUT RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN THE 2016 ELECTION. NOW THE TRUE PARTY FINALLY DROP THEIR NARCISSISTIC MASK. THE TRUE FASCIST PARTY. WHO FAVORS PUTIN AND RUSSIA NOT AMERICA OR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. MOSCOW MITCH ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE

  • George Connectal

    Hirono, you are scum. You are a liar. You hate Hawaii and America. You have homeless in Hawaii but vote to help Illegal criminals. Using AMERICAN tax money for Illegals is a disgrace, take care of your backyard first. How much money did you embezzle from the monorail construction? So much corruption surrounds you that you must attack Trump because you democRATS are scared the investigations will uncover all your corruption. Hirono you are a joke and democRAT scum.

  • George Connectal

    All these lies were manufactured my the democRATS, fake dossier by Hillary and the DNC, fake collusion, fake everything and Hirono the liar and cheat goes along with it. DemocRATS really are a special kind of dumb to believe America does not see through their lies and corruption. Hirono does nothing for Hawaiians. Votes to give AMerican tax payer money to ILLEGALS but turns her back to the homeless Hawaiians. She is disgusting.

  • Scan

    Russian money is being used to help trump dig dirt on his rivals, that is bad for the USA… Rudy is being paid $500,000 directly by Parnas who is not a rich man!

    After today's FISA (FISC) court order, House dems put themselves in a catch 22. FISC order says russian collusion evidence was bogus and FBI must prove otherwise by Jan 9. FBI is also ordered to have FISA's declassified by 12/20

  • Erik Hilsinger

    Or will investigations into Elaine Chao, Secretary of Transportation and McConnell spouse, spill over into a broader ethics examination of Slippery Mitch for corruption?
