  1. REminds me of George Costanza’s advice to Elaine when Morty Seinfeld begins working at J Peterman…
    “Schedule a late meeting-”
    “What does that do?”
    “By 4 PM these old timers are done.”

  2. All that was heard out of Senator Dewlap today was “It’s time to take a recess” “It’s dinnertime now” and “I’m tired”.

  3. The Internet Research Agency is working overtime in the comments today

  4. Did anyone else notice the typo in the video description? “…his mail priority…” Sounds like Mitch McConnell isn’t the only one who is getting sleepy on the job.

  5. #MoscowMitch knows its bad for his flunkies to be exposed to the public as voting NO on documents and witnesses. These votes will make excellent campaign attack ads!

      @jla7blue You’re referencing socialism/marxism. Like all faux news dipsh*ts, your two-dimensional logic excludes a fundamental understanding of bourgeois oppression under unchecked capitalism to a socialist and ultimately classless society of the top 1% with almost total wealth.

    • @jla7blue Yes, Democrats are the best. Good point you made.

    • @1sm08 uh huh. The best, no sarcasm at all. They’ve sure cleared the way for a lot of constitutional judges though. Nearly 190, including two on the supreme Court. Good democrats.

  6. So Moscow Mitch is not allowing any real witnesses 😳

    • Nope , why should he ? It’s just a waste of time .

    • Their were no real witnesses so far…. just people with opinions. No facts no evidence super weak case of impeachment. Everyone knows this impeachment is a sham.

    • He’s in bed with the Chicoms, not Moscow. His wife is a Chinese spy. He’s a bigger crook than Joe Biden. The Russians can’t afford Mitch. Texas alone has a larger economy than Russia.

    • *Well the Democrats impeached Trump without any real evidence, so…*

  7. Based off the evidence they had previously had.Not keep their investigation going

  8. what is a trial without evidence?

    • Same thing as an impeachment without evidence. The joke is just being continued in a different place.

    • Dems should have thought of that before they came to court with no evidence of any crime. Of course, you ignorant gullible Dem plantation hater/losers will never be smart enough to think of something like that. If you were smart enough, Dems couldn’t keep playing you for fools, getting you all riled up over imaginary crimes. Dems have to go for the scum at the bottom of our society because then know all the smart people are voting for Trump.

    • @Sux_2_B_U bot…

    • @William M Ignorant gullible dem plantation hater/loser clown.

    wow

  10. LMAO aquitted. Lol

    • *_”The Senate was the always main objective”._*

      *53-47 outcome was predicted over a year ago.*

      *”IT WAS OVER BEFORE IT BEGAN”*
      *WWG1WGA*

  11. weird how the Republicans don’t want any evidence or witnesses or to present the perfect evidence that vindicates the president…innocent people totally act like this.

    • You could say the same for democrats w/ their “overwhelming evidence” in their case, yet wants to add more witnesses? Thought dems had it wrapped up? Guess not.

    • bloodinthewater | January 22, 2020 at 10:30 PM | Reply

      @52 80 Yes, exactly, allow them to present the evidence, and allow them to subpoena witnesses. I’m glad that we can agree on the fact that this needs to proceed the way all other impeachment trials have proceeded before it. Call witnesses, and allow Discovery for evidence. I’m sure Trump will not mind since it was all so perfect.

  12. Make them vote on everything so history records their names on every individual vote

      @jordana Cohen this nonsense was debunked in less than a minute. you’re a complete failure

    • @jordana Cohen The Dems will when the tables are turned in 10 or 20 years when the Reps try to impeach a Dem Pres and the Dems lay the same set of rules on the table for that impeachment as the Reps are now. Karma.

    • @Dave Schultz You keep telling yourself that buddy

    • @Troy Stocker no one is naive enough to not know where this is heading, but there is no need for a ‘crime’ in the traditional legal sense, this is not a criminal trial. Trump however has broken the law anyway as by the GAO finding. What this process does achieve is making even more evident to the educated the level of corruption in the GOP. Only those who can’t understand what has happened and see what continues to happen remain blind and buy Trump and the GOPs BS hook line and sinker.

    • these people are closer to their obituaries than any meaningful time in power

  13. Not only extend proceedings. BUT impeach as often as needed-DRIVE LOSER OUT!

  14. The implosion of a democratic republic happening in slow motion.

  15. The world watches the ultimate exercise in how to pervert democracy by Moscow Mitch and his merry henchmen.

  16. Everyone should be treated the same. When you’re called for jury duty take the oath. Lie during the jury selection process and then let the accused off with a not guilty verdict. Hold firm even if it’s a mistrial. Send a message to those at the top. You can be shot dead on 5th ave on live TV and your killer will not be convicted. Sound scary? So is this. Jury nullification, screw the ruling class.

    Moscow Mitch wants to bring back “shotgun trials” where the rich land owner would TELL the judge what the verdict would be even before starting the “trial” that might last 1 hour before the hanging by the nearest tree!
    Moscow Mitch would like his selected judges to select what evidence to permit and dam the law. That way the outcome is once again selected before trial starts.
    THIS IS NOT THE AMERICAN WAY
    America has a blindfolded person holding the scales of justice as BOTH SIDES ARE PERMITTED TO PRESENT EVIDENCE BEFORE A JUDGEMENT
    MOSCOW MITCH WOULD LIKE TO BRING IN THE RUSSIAN OR NORTH KOREA METHOD OF ASKING THE LEADER FOR WHICH OUTCOME THEY WANT!!!
    Is this the American Constitution method?

  18. No fair trial,no wittinesses,no documents =Cover up!!

  19. Come on America,we aren’t that uneducated to figure out that the redacted emails is totally a cover up to protect Trump! Come on people we need a fair trial!
