After Sworn Oath, Historic Impeachment Trial Begins – Day That Was | MSNBC

64 Comments on "After Sworn Oath, Historic Impeachment Trial Begins – Day That Was | MSNBC"

  1. Trump is always either scared or angry.

  2. He don’t want to end up like Jeffrey Esprine, or slip on a bar of soap ending w a broken neck

  3. I hear those jail doors a-slammin’…
    … 45th president? I don’t know him, never heard of him…

    • Heard today that Parnas worked w/ trumps father ummm imagine that

    • I heard that CNN pays airports to play their shows 24/7 all around the globe….and it’s a fact.CNN and MSNBC has you people so filled with unjustified hate and rage over _one_ guy.Let that sink in……
      Also….why do you really hate Trump??? The reason…….what is it that he did to you exactly?

    • @3ds max – I heard that the RNC pays out-of-work bloggers to repeat their talking points 24/7 all around the globe….and it’s a fact. Faux Noose, the RNC and the GRU disinformation squad has you right-wing people so filled with unjustified hate and rage over one guy. Let that sink in… one liar, a cheat and a draft dodger… a man who would sell his country out for “the dirt” on a political rival…

      Also….why do you continue to defend the Molester-In-Chief???? The *real* reason… …the Orange Buffoon’s “tax break” was for golf course owners and his rich corporate donors, and his last big “trade war” bankrupted thousands of farmers in the midwest ….what is it that he did for you, exactly?
      … 45th president? I don’t know him, never heard of him…
      I hear those jail doors a-slammin’…

    • Toni Deshon Who told you that…CNN? 🤣

    • @Rod Allen – “Heard today that Parnas worked w/ trumps father ummm imagine that” (Tony Deshon)… Given the vile reputations of both Lev Parnas & the entire greed-soaked, anything-for-a-buck Drumpf family, that story’s more believable than Chump’s “i don’t know him” defense…

    He really going to try to deny this when everything came out

  6. What innocent person would not want witnesses to testily? What innocent person would put a gag order on witness ? What innocent person would have relevant documents held ? I’ll tell you not “one” that is “perfect” surely not that one would?

    • @David Hale,
      Evidence of what?
      It doesn’t matter what evidence there is!
      The President is completely and entirely incharge of foreign policy!
      If it’s believed that the President overstepped than it must be a bipartisan belief, else it’s just politics, which of course that’s all this is!

    • Rand Kocher hey calm down there turbo. You don’t need to convince me it’s bs.

    • @David Hale,
      Carry on… Hahaha

    Well in the end Ukrainian did start investigation… in to Trump actions.

  8. The republicans solemnly swore to protect their orange traitor at all costs. “Laws? What laws? President Doofus don’t have to obey no laws! We have the majority and we make the rules!”

    • oltedders all you have to do is look at the house inquiry to see how a Russian trial would go.

      @Truth Seeker – this impeachment is 100% and self serving to three Democrats and the permanent government. This is the first time since the Civil War that this level of sedition has been seen from the Democrats.

    • l rest my balls on your nose

  9. Onward and upwards America, the truth will come out whether trump likes it or not. 😊💙

  11. Taken pictures with thousands of people? Too bad…picture’s worth a thousand words.

    “The outstanding negative quality of the totalitarian elite is that it never stops to think about the world as it really is and never compares the lies with reality.”
    “Before mass leaders seize the power to fit reality to their lies, their propaganda is marked by its extreme contempt for facts as such, for in their opinion fact depends entirely on the power of man who can fabricate it.”
    “Totalitarianism in power invariably replaces all first-rate talents, regardless of their sympathies, with those crackpots and fools whose lack of intelligence and creativity is still the best guarantee of their loyalty.”
    “Factuality itself depends for its continued existence upon the existence of the nontotalitarian world.”
    ― Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism

  13. The Republican Senators are showing why they are the con of Congress.

  14. what person that was looking for the truth would be blocking witness from coming forward an testifying on what planet is that normal ?

    • James Brown Is that why Schiff blocked Republicans from calling their witnesses in the House? What are Democrats afraid of????

  15. Orange Dump: “Don’t know him, never heard of him.”
    Lol I’ve seen this movie before: “I don’t know anything about the 150K to Stormy, you’ll have to ask Michael Cohen”

  16. It’ll be a “trial” when witnesses are called and documentation is allowed. If not, it’ll be hot air.

    Trump don’t believe himself: He say he don’t “believe” I ever spoken with him. 🙉🙈🤣🤣🤣

  18. So the rethugs All crossed their fingers behind their backs no doubt.

  19. “sworn oath” – yes, where ALL Republicans have already sworn their allegiance to the party and “individual 1”. How McConnell pen didn’t burst into flame when he signed his “oath” is a mystery to me.

  20. “I don’t know him, I don’t know him, I don’t believe I have ever spoken to him…”. Proof right there they were as thick as thieves!!
