‘Stunt’ Men: GOP On Defense As Damning Ukraine Testimony Goes Public | MSNBC

 

President Trump’s new quid pro quo defense on Ukraine is saying ‘there is nothing wrong with it’ because ‘it is not an impeachable event.’ Trump’s admission undercuts the GOP’s defense, as RNC Official Elizabet Harrington claimed Trump’s Ukraine call had ‘nothing to do with Biden,’ in a recent interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber. The Washington Post reports a growing number of Republican senators are considering acknowledging Trump’s quid pro quo but countering with it’s not 'to the level of an impeachable. Aired on 11/04/19.

  1. First to say BUSTED MFKAS!!!😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣

  2. Again, No quid pro quo is needed! Simply soliciting (asking) a foreign agency to investigate your political rival, is, in and of itself, a impeachable offense. 52 US CODE 30121

      BIDEN IS NOT A RIVAL AND THATS NOT THE CODE U HEARD ON COMMIE NEWS NET WUSSIAN LED DEMON RATS MAKING PUTIN SMILE U ALL R DOING A GREAT JOB DISRUPTING LIKE RUSSIA WANTED GUILTY BY OPIN IS NOT LAW

    • Last i checked, the president sets foreign policy, not alphabet agencies men that thought it was inappropriate. So it was okay for donald trump, a presidental candidate to be investigated but not biden? You guys need to make up your minds and stick to it, not do this “its okay only if i agree with what theyre doing.”

    • @Katt Hudson yeah, Trump was a political rival in 2016 but it was okay to investigate him for corruption. Its not okay to question Biden and his son when Biden is on tape saying Ukraine needs to fire a prosecuter to recieve 1 billion dollars. Oh yeah, that just happens to be investigating the company his son works for and was about to question his son. Why would a vice president of our country want a prosecuter in another country fired even if he was corrupt?! Its not our business! Considering his son didnt have any experience and was getting paid an insane amount, i think that should be investigated for sure.

      @james T well said

    • @Ann Owens Kudos for the Peter Principle reference. I was wondering if anyone else was seeing this.

  3. So….wait extortion is legal as long as they say no to my demands?…..

  4. Kellyanne needs to crawl back under her slimely rock. She lies tries to obstruct and gaslights.

    • @Richard Hammonds no….when trained mental health professionals recognize a lunatic who has been off his meds since they let him out of prison, we encourage him to seek treatment.

  5. The Republican message has gone ALL over the place for an explaination and an excuse.

    • Micky Cripplejohn | November 5, 2019 at 6:33 AM | Reply

      @Joy Phillips Logical? 😀

    • That’s a sure sign that somebody is lying.

    • If Obama really believed the Russians were interfering in the 2016 election, why didn’t he do something about it? What role did Ukraine play, why was Ukraine brought up in the Mueller investigation? You know it is against the law for a citizen without a criminal background to be spied on by the USA intelligence service(since 911) use to be completely illegal for any reason. Why were the intelligence agency of foreign countries spying on Trump? Why didn’t Obama turn the USA law enforcement and intelligences service on to Russia???

  6. let me get this straight, GOP thought that a sexual interaction between consenting adults was enough to investigate and impeach Clinton, but attempted corruption is not? Typical hypocritical alternative reality.

    • Bye Golly Yes, and none of trumps actions meet those qualifications. On the other hand, Biden meets those to the T. His dealings with China and Russia were definitely bribes and coercion. That is who we really should be going after!

    • Aidan Campbell There was no bribe by Trump in the phone call. Why are people saying there is? All you have to do is read the transcript. Biden is the one who committed the bribery and coercion. Trump was merely asking about how the investigation on Biden was going. That is not digging dirt on a political rival. That is where people are getting confused with this.

    • @aerodave1 Tell me why the AG started investigating a real estate deal story didn’t find anything (as usual) and ended up investigating a BJ? Clinton was caught lying about a BJ right? Why hasn’t Trump being called to testimony under oat because he is afraid of a perjury trap? The all story is about double standards plus hypocrisy and you proved my case

    • That is a fact.

      #presidentpussyassbitch

    • @Nivola 1953 I wouldn’t testify either if I was Trump because it is all a farce. It is a fake made-up investigation over nothing. Trump didn’t do anything wrong so why should he testify? The ONLY reason they want him to testify is to trap him saying something. Why would he subject himself to that???

  7. If he did it it’s ok now? WTF! It is not ok to ask a foreign government to investigate a US citizen.

    • @Joy Phillips Clinton is an American you SOB. Are there any Democrats colluding with the Russians and selling out our allies? Only cons believe that Democrats are worse than our enemies the Russians. I consider Republicans to be enemies of America and they should stop calling themselves Americans since they hate 60% of the nation.

    • @Chris H The CIA is an American group, Ivan.

    • @Will W The KKK is an American group, racist

      IF THEY HAD DEALINGS THERE AND WAS CROOKED AND RECIEVED MILLIONS FOR NOTHING YES!!

    Bribery and corruption to trump is perfect……that is how he lives his whole life

  9. It’s offensive when Trump and his clowns say things that even a 1st grader knows is a lye

  10. The only fake news is coming out of trumps mouth

  11. when blind loyalty begins, rationality ends

    • Arman D : What, “Politics,” are there? What, “Ideology,” is attached to this Personality Cult? Trump draws from the extreme Left AND Right. A Cult is as Un-American as it GETS 👍

    • The Nobody Project : I just cannot WATCH certain people. Their LIES, their twists, their BLAH BLAH BLAH, shouting down REALITY. Kellyanne, Bolton and Barr, are top of my list. I wait for the news to tell me if they say ANYTHING WORTH repeating . . . Smh

      THATS THE TROUBLE WITH PUTIN LED DEMON RATS

    • @Ash Roskell You can not rely on the media to report the truth too you any more. THEY are the liars, look for your self. What is wrong with the USA be successful. Why do we need to transport our jobs, our livelihood to another country? How does that benefit you? Is it okay for Joe Biden to grab the wife of one of his aides by the privates, or the 13 year old daughter of that same aide by the butt? Please wake up before you vote, again.

  12. I’m tired of Republicans saying why impeach, there’s an election coming up. Let the voters decide. It’s clear the Founding Fathers believed some actions and behaviors were so egregious that the republic couldn’t wait for an election to possible rectify the situation. Take Trump. He certainly falls into that category. Even if he were to lose (or especially if he loses) Trump coud do a lot more damage before leaving office. THAT is why you impeach and remove regardless of whether there is an election upcoming.

    • Just because you do not like someone does not give you the right to terminate that person. Not in this Constitutional Republic. Maybe in Mexico or some third world country, but not here sir.

    • @BigTex4545 They will NOT hurt the President of the United States. Especially, the man who will go down as the greatest President in U.S. history. Mark my words.

    • @T Boned Yeah, Trump is already up there with the all-time greats like Nixon, Clinton and Andrew Johnson…

    • @Jon Emery Keep watching the fake news and their lies Jon. If you want to believe it then you will be the one with egg on your face when the truth comes it. It won’t be long now!!

  13. Elect an Apprentice, expect a travesty.

  14. I am so sick of Trump’s selective reality. Like fed up.

    • Dark Knight Keep your feet on the ground and your eyes on the prize. He’ll be impeached yes, but removed no. The real fight is the 2020 election.

    • T Boned I am very much awake. That’s the problem. Trust me I wish I wasn’t. No matter which way you slice it Trump only cares about himself.

    • Jock Young Yeah I’m not sure where he got that. The current polls are like 50% in favor of impeachment and removal. Don’t know where he the got the idea jail was part of the poll.

  15. Republican logic: Crime is ok as long as you don’t mean it.

    • @Jeremy Backup No evidence of Bidens guilt???????? Pull your head out and listen to Fox and Dan Bongino. Obviously you are uninformed and listen exclusively to MSNBC

    • Or it’s ok as long as your incompetence prevented you from succeeding, or as long as you were stopped before completing the crime…..
      Meanwhile, Obama wore a tan suit, and Republicans lost their minds.

      I’m beginning to think Republicans have different standards for themselves and Democrats…..

    • Oh, how cute! A baby troll! (hug).
      What country are you trolling from, my sad little friend?

    • Richard Hammonds | November 7, 2019 at 5:48 AM | Reply

      WHAT !!!!!! THAT WAS WHAT CROOMY SAI D EXACTLY ABOUT CROOKED HILLERY R U AWAKE STOP BEING USED AND FOOLED BY COMMIE NEWS NET

  16. “If I did it.” Wasn’t that OJ’s book title?

    • It was… it fit in nicely during the Clinton years…. because Bill said the same thing.

    • BubblewrapHighway | November 5, 2019 at 1:56 AM | Reply

      You gotta hear about what happened with that book.

      The rights were sold to the FAMILY OF RON GOLDMAN and they distorted the cover to make the words “I DID IT” way bigger than the rest of the title.

      Skeptical Skeksis Yes. There have been a lot of transcripts released, some today? Have YOU seen them? Btw, I get my news from many news sources and think critically. Try it some time.

    • David Aspinall | November 5, 2019 at 4:59 PM | Reply

      @Richard Hammonds If you had defended the name, then it would have been more believable – instead you went for trying to convince me about your boss.

      More training needed.

    • They did not hide sh@t, the transcript was released, you can find it online you do not have to rely on the media to cherry pick what they choose to revile to you. RESEARCH!!
