  1. Looks like Trump hired the right lawyer, he got the”EPSTEIN” deal.

    • @Thats not funny
      He probably wore it on his head…
      I don’t trust any of them.

    • Alan Dershowitz who was one of Epstein clients. Alan tried to defend himself by saying that he had his underwear on so he couldn’t possibly sexually abused anyone…kinda like’ I did not have sexual intercourse with that woman’ defense.
      Also, Ken Starr has his own creepy side too. Ken Starr was ousted as president of Baylor University during a sexual assault coverup scandal in 2016. Monica Lewinsky recently retold the story when she saw Starr at a restaurant and he was rubbing her arm and wouldn’t let go.
      Pam Bondi is the Florida AG who Trump gave 25,000 from his charity as a bribe to dismiss the Florida case against Trump University.

      @Yusuf Ginnah OMG, You are probably right!

      @KB Peters Thank you for explaining.

    • Hopefully they end the same way.

  2. Narrator: “There are no moderate republicans.”

    when you vote party line 99.9% of the time you cannot identify as a moderate.

    • Nicholas White | January 21, 2020 at 10:52 AM | Reply

      Amen

    • They vote with Trump because they are scared of Trump’s hold on his misinformed supporters.

    • That is called collective stupidity! The issues here are far bigger than parties and individuals, moderate or not! This is about protecting the Constitution of the greatest and most powerful nation on earth and democracy!

    • @John Swo “They Vote With Trump Because….of Fear of the misinformed Voters.”

      NO John. They Vote With Trump Because They DON’T WANT TO LOSE THEIR SEATS On the Washington DC “Gravy Train Special”. Power, Prestige AND ACCESS To Money.
      ▪︎They Work For The People of the United States of America
      ▪︎ Yet They have Checked Their Integrity And Character at the door
      ▪︎ They do not Honor Their Oath Of Office, the Constitution, Theirselves Or The American People. GOGGLE Their name and CALL or E-MAIL:
      202 225 3121 SENATE
      CALL…

    • I think moderate republican means one that is not openly racist, fascist and treasonous. It’s one that keeps that stuff on the down low.

    “Moderate Republicans” the term itself is laughable. Being a Republican during the Obama presidency was how much you hate Obama. Now being a Republican during the Trump regime is how much do you love Trump.

      @Genevieve Words This is the most racist comment I’ve ever heard. You definitely need some help. It’s a no wonder that you were a Democrat the party of racism

      @Earl Franklin you’re wrong there is one Republican left and his name isMitt Romney. He is one of the last of the swamp to be removed.

    • @Earl Franklin We shouldn’t be so divided in first place. I have voted both parties in past for the best person. I knew this one was evil and other was evil too. That’s why Dave, movie came into mind. For the people , we are wanting the same. No reason we can’t. This regime has thrown millions and billions in our face and crooks take all and they hold office to serve the people. Such Bull.

    • Call them what they are: Trumpers.

  5. I can tell right now this whole process is going to be in embarrassment an injustice to the American people

    • Sharon Rinkiewicz | January 21, 2020 at 6:08 PM | Reply

      Republicans hate democracy, the constitution, and the rule of law. The senate will either dismiss the charges before questions even begin or they will declare him innocent.

      Trump will then try to get another country to interfere with the election.

      @Sharon Rinkiewicz Sounds like a lot of personal problems we shouldn’t have to look at but here we are!

    • Gabriel Chambers | January 21, 2020 at 8:17 PM | Reply

      Trump 2020!!!

    • Gabriel Chambers | January 21, 2020 at 8:18 PM | Reply

      I will send the message to them by telling them they are fighting corruption!!!
      Trump 2020!!!
      Mitch for life!!

  6. Trump’s goon “Moscow Mitch Mc-Con-nell” is trying to run a sham-trial due to the overwhelming evidence against Trump that will without any doubt, destroy the entire GOP supporting him.

    The GOP are no longer a republican party. It is just a “Cult Of Trump” and has betrayed democrats and republicans alike in the democracy/republic of the United States.

      Unless the Republican cheaters cheat the system, again. Vote them all out! What a bunch of renegades in the house representing America. But not all of America, we are not ALL Stupid.

    • Another form of bullying.

    • Can anyone imagine a JURY coordinating with the defense lawyers and already decided on outcome BEFORE the trial? M McConnel has admitted coordinating with Trump’s defense lawyers! McConnel still refuses to bring witnesses that could help Trump – they are his own people. We are under no obligation to hear the testimonial of Bolton – Mark Rubio Can you imagine a defense team NOT CALLING witnesses that could help their client? On top of that …we got L Graham bragging that he has already made his mind up WAY BEFORE the trial has even begun. I AM NOT GOING TO PRETEND TO BE A FAIR JUROR. – Graham Can you imagine jurors settling on the verdict before the trial begins? Why bother swearing an oath when you have all the intention of breaking it?

      Alan Dershowitz who was one of Epstein clients. Alan tried to defend himself by saying that he had his underwear on so he couldn’t possibly sexually abused anyone…kinda like’ I did not have sexual intercourse with that woman’ defense.
      Also, Ken Starr has his own creepy side too. Ken Starr was ousted as president of Baylor University during a sexual assault coverup scandal in 2016. Monica Lewinsky recently retold the story when she saw Starr at a restaurant and he was rubbing her arm and wouldn’t let go.
      Pam Bondi is the Florida AG who Trump gave 25,000 from his charity as a bribe to dismiss the Florida case against Trump University.

  7. republicans only care about keeping their power. This has always been true, but now they’re just so desperate that they’ll sh*t on their oaths to do it.

  8. Moscow Mitch: Limit documents and witnesses to make sure no new allegations pop up. Yet, the Vast majority of Americans want new testimony and evidence..🤔

  9. Doesn’t matter… there isn’t one set of balls among them.

  10. I predict….republicans will prove that unlike other evolved forms of life, they defy gravity by standing erect without a spine!!!!!!

    This is a FAKE trial pure and simple. Anyone please tell us any trial where no evidence and no witnesses were even allowed?? What a scam.

    Magical Mitch makes up the rules as he goes. Be glad when he’s voted out

    • Christopher Barrett | January 21, 2020 at 6:56 PM | Reply

      McConnell should have been voted out a long time ago.The people living in his district are to blame because they had the power to get rid of him and once again they chose not to, so why would this time around be any different.

    • Christopher Barrett | January 21, 2020 at 6:56 PM | Reply

      @ramos1258 Exactly right.

    • One of trump’s campaign promises was term limits for members of Congress. Guess he conveniently forgot about that after realizing thst most of his GOP supporters, including Mitch, would be gone…

    • It’s only “magical” to Miss Lindsey as she put it.

    • Miller Salmond: I heard he was 3M Mitch, Midnight & Moscow, so by your reckoning he has been upgraded to 4M Magical, Midnight, Moscow Mitch? Manure maybe his next upgrade!!!

  13. AMERICA THE REALITY SHOW. meanwhile we are being robbed blind by the current government. The middle class is gone the 1% government elites own now run the “show” with REAL LIFE CONSEQUENCES. Ie, America is leaderless

  14. Nicholas White | January 21, 2020 at 10:56 AM | Reply

    The truth is alot of these senators were directly involved. Criminals policing each other. Smh we are rome now!

  15. “I can do anything I want” DJT (With the backing of Moscow Mitch and Lindsay, I used to hate this guy Graham)

  16. ALL Republicans should be under pressure during these proceedings, if they are serious about their oaths to the constitution. But their TRUE fealty is to their party, not the constitution or rule of law. They know Trump is corrupt and not worthy of the office.

  17. This is a disgrace. No matter which party you vote for these senators took an oath which they are breaking.

  18. Moscow Mitch hurts the Americans people, specifically Kentucky’s than anyone. He’s a denial of the Truth is disgusted and shameful. Vote Him out!!

    There is no honor in asking foreign governments for help winning and election. None.

    Our country is so far gone that even if proof came out that they were plotting to assassinate the ambassador, his zombie followers and the GOP would keep towing the line.
