  1. Trump Enemy of USA and Human beings!

    .

  2. When do we wake up and start calling this a Dictatorship? Like all dictatorships this one needs to end by an act of the people.

  3. Master of Ceremonies, such a waste. maybe He can fetch Moscow Mitch coffee during breaks..

    • ****MEDIA FAIL**** — MSNBC only tells us half the story on the Chief Justice presiding over impeachment. Yes, we understand the rules give all the power to Senators on how to conduct the trial, but what MSNBC leaves out is that any Senators seeking to subvert justice would be making the Chief Justice complicit in turning a very important legal proceeding into nothing more than a kangaroo circus. Any Chief Justice worth his salt will put a stop to such nonsense, or let those partisans seeking to subvert justice know that they will pay a heavy price.

      Will the Chief Justice sell out the Constitution for partisan purpose? Will Republicans Senators look to alienate the Chief Justice, who is their vital swing vote on the SCOTUS? Or, will they FINALLY conclude that their efforts gaslighting, covering-up, and protecting a lawless, sociopathic President are far more damaging to them and the GOP? Because in the end, the Chief Justice and those Republican Senators are just as much on trial before the American people as is Trump. These are the questions the media should be asking, the points the media should be stressing to inform the public. Media BE better, WE be better!

  4. At least there will be less grandstanding with written questioning!

    Leningrad Lindsey bought targeted ad space? 😬

  6. Where, exactly, does the Constitution of the United States of America SAY THAT?

      When has any constitution ever been taken seriously by the elites anywhere when it gets in the way of their looting and pillaging ?

    • @skutch Blobaum Will concede your point, but still would like for somebody to answer (o even address) this question.

  7. Whoever heard of a trial where the so-called ‘innocent’ defendant demands no witnesses? McConnell and Graham have openly admitted it will be a rigged trial. The Dems are just doing what they can to try and force some kind of legitimacy into the trial.

    • NO INNOCENT ..”DEFENDANT”… CALLS FOR WITNESSES WHEN NO CASE HAS BEEN PROVEN AGAINST THEM…AS THEY DON’T NEED ANY….. ARE YOU AWAKE?,,,WOW

    • Captain Clone
      The democrats wanna get rid of that, the first amendment and electoral college; but they “had to protect the constitution during impeachment in the house” 🙄

  8. Witnesses? Criminals like trump don’t want witnesses.

  9. Could a judge be nasty and let them vote over and over until the public see there is a cover up ??

  10. why bother having the chief justice if they’re not calling witnesses and it’s going to be a sham??? ANYONE, ANYONE???

  11. What’s a trial without witnesses or evidence? It’s called a cover-up. And the American people will be watching.

    “Trial” that’s being generous. The GOP is going to vote to adjourn after they’ve finished reading their prepared lies.

    • THIS WILL NOT BE A TRIAL AS NO CASE FOR PROSECUTION HAS BEEN MADE… IT WILL BE A DISMISSAL WITH IMPUNITY

    • Your Big Head Cousin | January 13, 2020 at 5:49 PM | Reply

      @berdboy I’m sorry, no case for prosecution??

    • @Your Big Head Cousin NO NEED TO BE SORRY DEMOCRATS COULD NOT MAKE A CASE!…IT WAS 100% A SHAM FROM DAY 1 OF THE PRESIDENTS BIG WIN AGAINST THE ANTI CHRIST!

    • Any different from the congress

    • Your Big Head Cousin
      Let me get this straight. It sounds like the democrats want to control both the house and the senate in this impeachment and if any republican votes against impeachment, they’re against the constitution … The democrats have gone absolutely insane 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  13. The pride he must feel overseeing a sham “trial” designed to cove-up a crime. I have no respect for American laws anymore.

  14. what a massive waste of time and money.

  15. It’s hardly a trial when the jury needs an endorsement from the defendant… Calling it a trial is a lie at this point..

    • YOU MEAN WHEN THERE IS NO CASE MADE AGAINST THE DEFENDANT DON’T YOU?

    • @berdboy . No. They proved he held the money based on that meeting. He’s definitely guilty. It’s just matter of whether you care about your cult or our country..

    • @Terry Tater UMMMMM NO ..NO THEY DIDN’T…GO BACK AND WATCH THE PROCEEDING AND GET BACK TO ME WITH WHAT SONDLAND SAID AT THE END.. THE OTHERS WERE NOT WITNESSES..

    • @berdboy lol. You’re saying he didn’t hold the money based on the meeting?
      It doesn’t matter. Bolton is gonna lie for him anyway.
      Fake trial with fake witness and fake jury..

    • @Terry Tater HE HAS EVERY RIGHT TO WITHHOLD THE MONEY FOR ANY REASON HE WANTS……SORRY…AND BIDEN WILL BE INVESTIGATED ….WATCH

  16. You mean like how it’s always been?
    “Surprised pikachu face”

  17. The illusion of democracy is gradually being exposed.

  18. c’mon now “Chief Justice” implement some unprecedented precedence of your own! ✊😁👍

  19. Roberts”recuse yourselves gentleman I’ll be back when you’re ready”
