    Forget the Mueller report,Trump should be Impeached on so many other things that the american people should not let this hearing be the final thing that suggest should he be Impeached or not.

  • Patricia Dixon

    You cannot exonerated someone if they never committed a crime. Unbelievable!!! Mueller look like his head is full of marbles and he can't hear from the noise coming from his brain cavity.

  • Jamaican girl one love

    Mini you need to apologize to Bernie Sanders. Why did you say he made your skin crawl? Did you say this about #45? That was not warranted.

  • Patricia Dixon

    Just another ridiculous waste of tax money. Hasn't Mueller wasted enough of our tax dollars! What I've seen, a completely nervous, stressed, Mueller losing his mind! Dementia?

    Or trying to save his life!

    Trump does and says what he's told to, this is what happens when you cooperate with lawless assclowns using you for bait to catch power abusers in government and cover up for rampant corruption along with the government's incompetence to police itself. Trump's NOT MAKING ANY DECISIONS. Covert op using Trump as bait leaked in my name.

  • Huawei Apple

    Clearly the constitution needs to be altered from what just happened and a long drawn out investigation. The constitution should protect the constitution, not a president that have overreach

  • Bebe Ortega

    Trump is just a typical spoiled brat to hat never grownup. His people is tolerating him . The more they feeding him with praises , the more he became a monster.

    A.K.A., the Unitary Executive Theory. Trump sure didn't believe the president can "do whatever he wants" when Obama was in the W.H. Also, Trump's cognitive dissonance filled narcissistic supply wouldn't support that theory whenever a Democrat is president.

  • Donoso Demaistre

    Was Mueller drunk? He was shaking, mumbling, slurring, stammering, and sometimes he was virtually frozen. And then he didn't understand simple questions, lost track, and didn't even know what is in the report. His report? This was Mueller's downfall. Right so.

  • Thom Robitaille

    No one is above the law in America. Collusion isn't the issue; it never was. Obstruction is the issue. Trump's willingness to subvert any person and break any law to protect himself is the issue. Check historical records to see just how brittle democracy can be if the public lets a megalomaniac take a hammer to it. Trump has violated the law and tried to exceed his authority many times over, and he knows it.

  • Rety Fuller

    Trump is a con artist and a racist using the power of presidency to enrich himself and his family. Disgusting! No ethics no morals!

  • Staticy Flames

    That would be crazy if you let the Republicans make this the new normal because if this is" Russians will have more power to control our minds and what we do and choose what president they want in office " . The red light is blinking! … national security threat!

    Trump loves Putin because Putin has all the power and say so in Russia. Trump's trying to silence everyone against him.

  • avarice seven

    When a white "billionaire" think he's not entitled enough, he runs to become a president. GJ America, you only really have your selves to blame for this. Sure Russia interfered but no false information can change a voter that easily if your education is enough

  • Sarah Lee

    The founding fathers replaced the 'King' with 'The President'. After 240~ years, 'The President' has more power than the 'Queen'.

  • Bud Fudlacker

    We couldn't find any crimes or exonerate Trump this was just a 40 million dollar fun run! Trump is cleared!

    Total destruction for the anti American anti God DemoKKKratic Party. The Republicans exposed this as a total WITCH HUNT. Mueller looked horrible to the point many believe he didn't even write the report LMFAO……. The Honorable Donald J. Trump WINS AGAIN.

    Trump believes that Article II provides for Evmxeutive Power, which is, in his mind, God's power. So he believes he is above the law and above the constitution. Barr would not correct him. But rather he encourages Trump to further his Executive Power. With that, Barr has committed the crime of obstruction of justice.

  • Gal Emit

    We have to get this illegitimate president out. Hopefully before he finagles the countryโ€™s assets for his empire. Heโ€™s no president he now thinks America falls under the umbrella of his stupid Trump Empire.

  • Gal Emit

    Iโ€™m fed up with young people wearing maghats screaming insults, using racial epithets and taking what isnโ€™t theirs because it comes from a Democrat or a person of color. I spit in his face๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿ‘บ๐Ÿ‘น๐Ÿ˜คโŒ

  • Timothy Hallbeck

    msnbc viewers really do live in fantasy land. you do realize that he didnโ€™t say this in this context. oh wait, you wouldnโ€™t know that because you watch msnbc. assume everything you hear on this channel is a lie, and youโ€™ll be right 3/4ths the time.

  • Gonzo The great

    DUMP has decided he WILL do what ever he wants, who is going to stop him?? he has dis-empowered the congress by ignoring subpoenas, instructed his henchmen and women to ignore anything (he will protect them) he is just short of the Military being on the streets checking ID.

  • Boyd Gilbreath

    Soon Trump will let you know he has dispensed with the Constitution. Trump is a complete fake. Trump is de facto the dictator of the USA. If threatened he will declare Martial Law, which he can legally do any day he has a National Emergency in place. He has four National Emergencies in place now. Face it folks, your country was taken over by a criminal cabal. Trump is dictator for life.

  • Graeme SYDNEY

    With the support and collusion of the Republican Senate and the Republican High Court Chump is effectively king for four years.

  • Ed

    It was a complete disaster today for the Democratic party. If they don't grow a spine and take care of this themselves (stop relying on Mueller etc.) The country will have Trump for another 4 years

  • Oreo Pagus

    If Trump shot a reporter in the Oval Office for asking a question he didn't like, does he have immunity from being arrested/charged because of Article 2?

  • gamanin8

    So from what I just read, a president committing murder must go thru a two step process to pay for his crime: first impeachment, then prosecution for murder. Or other slimy crimes that Trump has trunks-full in his basement. Impeachment is needed NOW.

  • Eric Burkheimer

    And yet, it was Repugnicunts – in particular, the likes of John Boehner and Mitch McConnell – who accused Obama of acting as though he were "An emperor" – their words.

    On another note, speaking of Mitch McConnell: the not-so teenage not-so ninja but definitely a mutant turtle.

  • Blake Leishman

    We as conservatives realize that Trump is very rough. But we like his polices and that he knows America is great.

  • Bernard Martinez

    President Trump cannot obstruct justice while performing his duties under Article II, of the Constitution, he can fire anybody for any reason according to Alan Dershowirz. The special counsel or any prosecutor at no time has the power to "exonerate" anybody at any time. Mueller works for the DOJ and Bill Barr and Muellers final confidential report was delivered to the head of the DOJ who is Bill Barr, this evidence is based on Muellers findings in his report and Bill Barr summary of facts determined that there was NO COLLUSION and NO OBSTRUCTION was based upon this report! IT IS BILL BARR THAT HAS THE FINAL WORD ON THIS MATTER, NOT BOB MUELLER!

  • Sunny Kingston

    Sigh. It bears repeating: What if Obama had declared that he could do anything that heโ€™d liked? The outrage? The seizures?
    Itโ€™s well beyond hypocrisy.
