      Dave Schultz too late – I’m reporting this “outbreak of reasonable discourse” to the moderators. 😉 watching the clip again, Rachel saying “what they say about you is true” could be a bit of verbal side-eye…

    • @ChannelSurfer 2020 , Ha ha! 👍!

    The title is confusing. Replacing “to” with “in” would make it clear

    If this is the guy that is “the poster child for prosecutorial misconduct” then I’d like him on any good prosecution team any day of the week.

    • @Peaches Williams where’s your proof that God exists? Yet I’m betting you believe that.

    • anne bruce hey not only that they think tRump is either gods choice, or god himself. Speaking of koolaide it’s from one of the largest cult death. The Jonestown massacre. Do you think they are so far gone that when they get the word that it’s time to go they will clear themselves out of the gene pool.

      @Peaches Williams the proof that Andrew Wiseman is “the poster child for prosecutorial misconduct” or he’s the guy I’d like on a team of prosecutorial team any day?

    • There is nothing particularly dodgy in Wiseman’s background. He had one decision overturned by the Supreme Court where he argued to the jury in the Enron trials that Enron employees could be found guilty even if they were unaware that they were violating the law. The Supreme Court argued that that was wrong and that the jury should consider consciousness of wrongdoing in their decision. That’s about it — so if someone calls him a “poster child” for prosecutorial misconduct, something is a little weird. Wiseman has made enemies because he played a lead role in the successful prosecution of Paul Manafort, and as we saw in the impeachment hearings there are some in the GOP who want to make the case that Manafort is innocent, in particular that the Ukrainian records showing payments to Manafort were fake. Hard to square with bank records showing that Manafort received the money.

      Exactly. Andrew Wiseman does his job and does it effectively. That’s why the Trump White House feared him and still does.

    Guliani looks like a ghost in his most recent interview….

    • P J PJ, desperation causes desperate measures. Ghouliani has tons of incriminating evidence on Trump’s crimes.

    • P J Hi PJ. Appear to be many trolls on here trying to smear your outlook. I am not one of them. Thanks for your common sense comments and Happy Thanksgiving! 🇺🇸. Patriots Unite. 🇺🇸

  5. Thank you for sharing your expertise with us Andrew, and for doing so with such a lovely sense of humour. 😊💙

    The counter narrative is , “ yeah , but I like Trump, I don’t care what he did”

  7. Rudy and Donnie are fighting over the keys to the bus! 🚌 One will drive, and the other will find themselves thrown under the bus, with tire marks on his back…. Who will be where? 🍿

    AG Barr will also have his day of reckoning and will be held accountable for turning a blind eye to Trump’s corruption… Trump will be voted out of Office 2020…

      And that is why the DNC is broke.

    • @American Gamer Yeah, them masquerading as a progressive institution. Hopefully Bernie will at least help them shape up.

    • The issue here is not whether you can fool people, it is whether they know right from wrong.

      @Rita Hall I’ve known some very righteous people who got fooled. Naive yes…but still moral.

    The counter narrative is: It’s not Impeachable and the Senate Republicans won’t remove Trump from office.
    And that’s why American Constitutional democracy is D. E. A. D.

  11. Somebody is getting very nervous here so nervous he even exposed his inner fantasy of HARMING BABIES

  12. “Why are you so surprised? They’re guilty.” Put that on a t-shirt, right now.

  13. Get this guy on more often, please!

  14. As an attorney, I appreciate Mr. weissman’s, in particular, comments and analysis.

    They ALL could be charged if Trump loses in 11 mos. You need 24/7 oversight on the electoral process from here on out.

  16. Hi Rachel, Thanks for having Andrew Weissmann on.

  17. The trolls are out in force!

  18. Congress must remove Criminal trump. Or else he will rig the election and CHEAT AGAIN in 2020.

  19. I am so sick and tired of the stalling, obstruction and abetting that is dragging this process out. I am disgusted with so many of our elected representatives who are not complying with their oath’ to protect and defend the United States. I am pretty certain that when the hammer comes down on this whole criminal regime, it will slam much harder due to this lack of loyalty to the country over party.

    _”Why are you so surprised? They’re guilty!”_

    Words that could quite rightly be on the tombstone of the GOP.
