Ornstein: McConnell’s Admission ‘Violation Of Oath He Will Take As A Juror’ | The Last Word | MSNBC

 

Mitch McConnell has announced he’s coordinating with the White House for Trump's Senate impeachment trial. Norm Ornstein tells Ari Melber that "to basically admit before you start the trial that it's rigged is just quite astonishing" and says he doubts many Republicans will be happy about that. Joyce Vance adds that McConnell's comments mean that the Senate trial is a "rigged jury" and Trump can never truly be exonerated. Aired on 12/13/19.

  1. This is why Giuliani is continuing to do what he is doing, openly.

  2. What else would you expect from Moscow Mitch

    this public statement should be met with its own impeachment charges on monday!
    like why waste the time run both cases at once!

  4. Drag the republicans out and in front of a firing squad the filth

  5. When McConnell refuses to let all those House bills go to the Senate floor, he’s as much an autocrat as Trump. HE becomes Congress since he makes all the decisions without a vote.

    • @Paul Wilson one needs to offer evidence, links, etc. i have seen no argument from you. we all know mitch blocks almost every bill from the house. he boasted about it on national tv. i would provide a link , but it’s not necessary, because i am fairly sure you’ve seen those clips. however, i entreat u to share info with us that demonstrates that pelosi is blocking vital legislation. please.

    • @Paul Wilson YAY! A 5 year old schoolyard fight!

      I know you are, but what am I?

      Nyyeeaaahhhh 😜 nyih nyee nyah nyah! (sbtsbtsbtsbtsbtsbtsbt!)🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🙊🙉🙈🤣🙃

    • @Jimmy TheBold *you must have forgotten about USMCA… signed in november of 2018 and has been sitting on pelosis desk ever since*

    • @Paul Wilson if it was *SIGNED* than it’s already law. Voted and passed is one thing, but signed legislation is already complete.

      Know the process before you go shooting off at the mouth.

  6. The Republicans are soooooo corrupt. Don’t forget or forgive the Republicans for first inflicting Trump on the country. Then to protect Trump from. US law.

      I’m gonna allow lavrov in the oval office (the day the articles dropped) right out in the open (in your face) and what are you gonna do about it? i.e. get over it.
      Americans are asleep at the wheel.
      I’d bet money Lavrov and Trump were strategizing logistics on disallowing 2020 elections entirely. we need an american coup to oust this russian mafia money backed coup. I hope to god we got think tanks working on this as we speak.

      He’s always been openly contactable to AMERICA and Our Country’s Democracy, the HOUSES, and Our Constitution and Our System of Checks and Balances. HE has ATTACKED ALL OF THEM, IN OUR FACES.
      WHEN DO WE STAND? VOICE, VOTE and CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES IN D.C.. MAKE THEM HEAR YOU! REPUBLICANS ARE DONE. THEY DON’T REPRESENT THE PEOPLE OR THE CONSTITUTION!

  8. SHAME on the people who voted for Moscow Mitch!

    • I would hope the good people of Kentucky will recall this criminal.

    • @John Days
      You could have done ANYTHING wit yur time- but instead you chose to use a burner account to post inflammatory comments in hopes of getting attention.
      Congratulations!
      You OFFICIALLY proved that it REALLY sucks to be you.
      INCEL life is for b!tches- you weak a$$ sissy.

    • @T B much of that state is high on meth or permafried

    • Audley Anderson | December 14, 2019 at 10:27 PM | Reply

      @John Days And that’s your opinion. Your toxic statement wreaks of partisan delusion.

    • Mainely It’s pretty common in republics to set fire to power that becomes to democratic 😅

  9. Ditch Moscow Mitch and Kremlin Donovitch

  10. The USA is going down down down the toilet 🚽… flush 10 or 15 times

  11. And that Old Goat Mitch McConnell he needs to be laid out to pasture

    The American democracy is falling apart right before our eyes!

    • And half the country is egging it on, the half that wrap themselves in the flag and call themselves patriots. Can’t make this stuff up if you tried.

    • And what are you going to do about it in 2020? GET YOUR BRAIN WASHED VIA SOCIAL MEDIA? VOTE IN ANGER? OR DO YOUR DEMOCRATIC DUTY AND LOVE OF YOUR COUNTRY OVER YOUR PARTY OF CHOICE?

    • It’s on the ground now and the Republican party is walking all over it…

    • Get over it

    Moscow Mitch doesn’t care about process just obstruction

  15. “Mitch McConnell doing a fair trial” is an oxymoron

  16. Nixon : I’m not a Crook !.

    Trump : I’m a Crook. So what !.

    Republicans : We are all Crooks. Get over it !.

    Putin : Mission Accomplished!.

  17. So I can get jurors and judges that only like me in my trial? Cool

    Moscow Mitch is a traitor to our founding fathers, constitution.

    • @Audley Anderson I am, I just played Hopeful Advocate.

    • Colt Henderson | December 14, 2019 at 8:54 PM | Reply

      @John Days you are one of those psuedo patriots that knows nothing about the founding fathers of this country. Keep your brainwashed mouth out of the conversation you know nothing about and pick up a history book. Educate yourself before looking like an ignorant troll.

    • Rod Allen he said traitor to the founding fathers and constitution. That’s a fairly accurate description. Or you could say that Moscow Mitch and Republicans have now declared the constitution null ans void.

    • John Days can you point out where in the constitution they wrote saying no transgenders and no abortion? I can’t seem to find it. Still conservatives are against abortion, because they prefer them to be shooting targets when they reach school age. Much more fun killing actual babies than imaginary ones that don’t exist.

  19. Mcconnell is a low criminal and should be imprisoned.

  20. McConnell has no intergrity and never has.
