    Republicans have taught me today to no longer pay attention nor respect the Law. They are covering up for a TRAITOR to the United States and becoming accomplices to his crimes.. Moscow Mitch should be thrown in prison for defying his oath of office, along with Graham, Jordan, Nunez and Paul.. bunch of cowards

    • @Benoti Sanchez Yea a real stretch to say the obstructionist attitude of the president and devout followers of his keep a closed mind irregardless of facts that can only be nullified by not allowing corroborating live witnesses ,to either support or refute the claims of innocence.This will probably end up in a Constitutional question before the voters,as to how much,or how far any elected president can go to be an authoritarian entity unto themselves,with no reproach or remedy for any action they decide to take regardless of any equal branch of governments duty under present Constitution to have oversight.It might be a Democrat next go around..Just sayin,”Do we need Kings,or do we need ability to balance power.

    • @K. McKee Thank you! YES… We need to hold our morals firmly.

    • @citizenxgen you AGAIN
      Another night to stir up
      discontent between citizens. Can’t wait for November elections so our POLITICAL ENVIRONMENT WILL GET BACK TO NORMAL

  2. Democrats brought facts.
    t’rump’s lawyers brought fake outrage.

    • @jays knight king titan No impeachment has been done with this much obstruction. No impeachment has been done without witnesses. This type of hearing, is mentioned directly in the original Constitution, and the president is still ordering witnesses to not participate. if we wanted a king, we would have stayed part of England.

      @yurei8 that’s where getting a judge to come in. I guess you don’t get that. Also he did not obstruct congress they just wanted to rush and when a judge was asked they dropped it. If he had denied it after a judge ruled he has to then it would be obstruction. They are not above the president and no impeachment has been investigated in 3 months. All others have taken years and had judges rule on documents. So no the house didn’t do there job so they can’t cry for witnesses now. They said they have overwhelming evidence well produce it and if something is there I’m sure we will see some witnesses but if they have nothing then we won’t. You see trump is innocent until proven guilty just like you or I. The house has to prove without reasonable doubt guilt. I know this is hard to understand. If I were a lawyer going to trial and said this how do you think it would go. That’s why impeachment investigations don’t happen in just over 2 months.

    • @MrClaushk It is impossible that Obama and Holden blocked more. Trump blocked every witness and every document.

    • @Okkie Trooy Holder did more than that during ‘fast & fury’…

    • @Ganiscol The only Fake news is fake, dishonest Trump.

    The Republican Party is dead. These senators are in potus’s pocket. Truly sad day for democracy 🇺🇸

      NO! He’s broke… Can you say N.D.A’s??… If, they do not tow “trump’s” line he will make a “perfect” phone call to “netenyahu!”… It’s a “treasonous” day for, Americans… don’t repeat the words of the “Pundit-Jedi” with their mind tricks… But thumbs-up!… to you.

    • @citizenxgen Troll much do ya?….Comrade

    • @John Valdivieso Democrats are united. Republicans are embarrassed. For real.
      If the Republicans want to follow Trump to the exit in November than so be it. God speed.

    • Really? Republicans control the Whitehouse and the Senate and the Supreme Court. How exactly are they dead????

    • Right! Its Trump’s Party now

  4. They cowards. They should be embarrassed. Gutless Cowards

    • The democrats really, really are. You forgot the word desperate in there too though. Desperate, embarrassing, gutless cowards that will grasp onto anything to have a chance to win the election even it means abusing the entire system with a phony impeachment to get there.

      And you mouth breathers just eat it all up. Whatever pencil neck and Mr. Maddow tell you.

    • Really, she runs out and leaks to the media and bashes her fellow senators? But as a presidential candidate she claims to join both parties. Really???? She is nothing but a RAT and back stabber

  5. The whole world is watching, and for many years America has preached to them about what is right and what is wrong. America hasn’t always been a country to look up to. Sometime it gets it right and sometimes it gets it wrong, but its current hypocrisy is a disgrace.

    • @Roger C All in the military take an oath to protect and defend the US Constitution. When I was in the US Army, president Nixon resigned from office. Now in nazi Germany, the military took an oath to Hitler. So i see the signs of where we are headed.

    • I believe that our nation (the US), has been blessed, by it’s founding principles, and the actions we have taken in support of those principles. And this is why we have attracted so many good, and hard working people. However I see us as abandoning some of those, these days.

    • @BLAIR M Schirmer Agreed. Republicans have had a long history of warmongering haven’t they?

    • like an interrogation…it signals shame or guilt and or deception. The VOTERS will ultimately be the gatekeepers. He is DONE and so are his orange koolaide followers.

    You gotta give my Senator kudos for getting her face out there even though she can’t be campaigning in Iowa during this trial.
    She appeared on PBS, too. I guess it takes some effort to get away to speak on camera. That’s what Lisa DeJardin said.

  7. This is a Republican sham. You will be held accountable un-American political placeholders. Your Republican signatures on opening of this supposed trial is a forgery. Democracy is on life support and you are unplugging monitors right in front of our faces. Your corruption is there for everyone to see.

    • heywood1980 like I said “believe your own eyes and ears”. Do your own research.

    • @Sally Vega Vote for the next Republican in 2024 while you are still whining about lose in 2020. Get over it man.. move on with your life

    • History will not be kind to the Republicans or their supporters. Wish I could read a future history book.

    • @Sally Vega So much whining and complaining… you sound like a robot or a conspiracy theorist. Welcome to politics. The whistle blowers name was released 3 months ago man.. Trump like many others retweeted the site it was posted on. Get over yourself.. It’s called “rhetoric”… Look it up and stop crying like a little girl.. Vote if you have a problem

    • @Soapandwater6 WoW, keep retweeting what the media plugs into your brain.. LOL. History will remember the economic prosperity of this decade NOT all the Democratic outrage and crying like lost SHEEP

    This is literally the DUMBEST, most corrupt president we’ve ever had.

  9. I called my senators to let them know that I am not happy with the way the rethuglican party is running the show hopefully we can rescue our democracy voting the rethuglican party out of town I’m with Yang 2020 however vote BLUE no matter who MATH and MAGA Make America Greatful Again resist

  10. This is your Trump Dictatorship in Action ,! Grandstanding playing games Nothing to see here ,! Waist time so Bill Barr can deconstruct the constitution a bit more ,!

  11. Well, now we know is up to us “We the People of United States of America” this election for 2020 it will be the most important election of our life time! We must vote BLUE all the way! To make justice prevail in our Nation and our Constitution! The Republicans are destroying our Democracy!!! Vote blue 2020!

    the criminal republican party is dead

  13. Embarrassed?? That implies they have a soul, a conscience, dignity or respect… of which they have none, and history won’t be kind to them or their legacies.

    • which says a lot. A democrat will screw you and smile about it. Maybe even celebrate and hand out gold embossed pens or something. A Republican knows how the game is played. They know that they have to respond in kind when the opportunity presents itself. Exactly like their counterparts do to them. If you fail to act in the same fashion, you lose, you’re weak, and you don’t know how to play politics. The Republicans, by showing remorse, guilt, shame, are showing exactly how a normal honest decent human being is supposed to act in this situation. The democrats don’t, can’t, and are incapable of showing remorse. No morals, no values, no hearts.
      It’s politics people. Cut throat, and calculated.

      @camjamsdad notice how no one liked your comment

    • camjamsdad your comment is boring…

      @camjamsdad Your practicing “Moral Inversion” here!… Mr. Hitler, was accused of this by the REAL “Nazis” an acronym for “Nationalist+ Zionists”… The, Germans, are not, and never were “Zionists!” Who are YOU?!…

  14. I think everyone should go out on the streets every where and have signs and protest for witnesses . Read my comment below.  Senators and moscow Mitch don’t want witnesses

    Republicans have revealed themselves to be the ones who are anti- American. They can’t even do their jobs because they’re so entrenched.

    • Scrambled Eggs lol Democrats haven’t done a thing for the past 3 years except scheme, lie and cry about Trump.

    • They are all scared of being perceived as weak in their support of the corrupt Trump which will produce a primary foe enjoying Trump’s support against their reelection.

    • Alfred Basurto | January 22, 2020 at 11:00 AM | Reply

      @Rod Allen stop talking. When McConnell is no lo longer killing bills we will listen. When Republicans aren’t lying and haulting work then you have room to talk.

  16. Republicans caught sleeping? Well of course they’re exhausted, screwing the country is hard work!

  17. lil jack russell | January 22, 2020 at 3:54 AM | Reply

    Tyrannical government is what this will be if the Republicans keep covering for the corruption in the White House!! Time to protest in DC now!

  18. Every single item was tabled, so it’s done and finished. This trial process is completely backwards

    The world is watching exactly how the Americans run their government and let their leader behave

    • It’s Disgraceful and really Embarrassing how repugz are behaving for a blatant corrupt crook. They should all be investigated and Removed from ever holding office.
      Real American’s VOTE to get him OUT. He’s no president he’s an IMPOSTER placed by your enemy putin to bring your country to its knees. Do Not Let The Enemies from within win. Its your country more than those no balls repugz. JS #FightForYourCountry #WorldIsWatching

  19. Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil, smell no evil.
    The president is using the Senate the way a cat uses a litter box.

    • @Arthur Anderson calm down buttercup the sun will come up in the morning wow you sure are long winded

    • Arthur Anderson | January 22, 2020 at 3:08 PM | Reply

      @Pub Comrad
      Yes they did. And THAT”S the real shame. No real viable argument to sustain Trump’s innocents which, of course he has none.
      HE IS GUILTY!!!

    • Arthur Anderson | January 22, 2020 at 3:21 PM | Reply

      @David Goldman
      Calm down. Lol..have YOU ever been under authoritarian rule. Dictatorship or Nazi, etc rule? No. Sorry “buttercup”, You nor I nor any american citizen born, raised in America have such experiences not one. Immigrants yes possibly. Depending on their home country of origin. So to tell me to “calm down” just demonstrates your lack of understanding the seriousness facing citizens. No one living in America NOW has EVER faced a “Benedict Arnold” as Trump shows himself to be. So may you come to your senses and realize yes, the sun will arise tomorrow. Thing is will YOU be here to see it. And if so will you recognize the America that you grew up in OR will it be an America that’s run, ruled as her enemies are thanks to a president that only desires what he thinks is right: his financial and power gain.

    • @Arthur Andersonyour little liberal teacher will like your long winded report i am 64 ex military my mom and father came here from ussr i own a business with 15 great people working for me so please no reply benedict arnold lol i have to work maybe you should also good luck

    • Trump uses everyone he can and when they’re no good to him he’ll dump em’ like yesterday’s trash. Look at how Matt Gaetz has been tossed aside.

  20. Because tRump deliberately blocked documents, evidence, and witnesses in House makes it more necessary now…no games plzz
