79 Comments on "‘There Were Some Lies’: Fact-Checking The GOP’s Impeachment Hearing Response | MSNBC"

  1. GOP and their chosen one are simply disgrace.

  2. Oh. Just a little tiny… Republican lie. It’s not like they tried to lie about the size of the crowd at Trumps presidential inauguration.

    • @DJ Jordan absolutely. The left wants to illegally rid of a duly elected president. Gloves are off on both sides now thanks to the left.

    • strobed22 Nothing they’ve done is illegal. It sounds like you’re just mad that the Republicans aren’t in total control of Congress anymore. And if these Republicans can break rules they don’t agree with, why can’t people from other countries break immigration rules they don’t agree with?

    • @DJ Jordan you’re not paying attention if that’s your take. Agree to disagree. I won’t change your mind but times are different now. Good luck.

    • @DJ Jordan not to waste my time, I’ll hint you. Look up the leftists under criminal investigations about the election meddling. The real traitors are on the left.

    • @DJ Jordan btw, Sonland testified, under oath before the US Congress, that nobody on this planet told him that Trump did a quid pro quo and yet every other leftist says otherwise. So…who do you believe? Lmao. What a circus the left is.

  3. Always playing the VICTIM CARD… Wonder where they learned that?🤔

  4. Is there anyone in the Dump Administration, including family members, who isn’t a criminal, liar, or under investigation?

    The American ppl are watching this and the Republicans keep acting like they’re being cheated. Right in front of the camera they lie. This is a TRUMP CULT….

    • @David R. Davidson Which witnesses have Republicans called for who aren’t appearing/scheduled to appear to the impeachment hearings? just the whistleblower who is already protected against having their identity being revealed…

    • David R. Davidson | November 18, 2019 at 11:45 AM | Reply

      @hectorhall82 great question/comments! Happy to answer. They’ve asked for Hunter Biden to testify, Chris Heinz, Alexandria Chaluppa and Joe Biden besides the whistleblowers that I know of. They’ve also asked for Trump’s lawyers Sekulow and Giuliani to be their to be able to participate in the crossexamination, but so far Mr. Schiff and a majority vote of the Intel Committee has denied them that when H. Res 660 says that they can. That much I know for sure, but I am learning more as we roll along here. You?

    • As someone watching this from the other side of the Atlantic I’m bemused that your Republican party are so happy to prostitute themselves in defence of someone so clearly guilty. You have to wonder if he really could shoot some one in fith avenue and these fawning sycophants would still defend him

  6. VOTE Blue!! The gop trump cult all have to go in 2020

    • Want more government interfering in your life? More regulations? Higher taxes? Open borders? People crapping on your sidewalks? Then by all means vote blue, otherwise vote Trump. Personally I think Trump is clearly the choice versus whatever progressive/communist candidate is put forth. MAGA

    • tonak1 yes i have no problem with that at all. Blue state life is great. You should visit one

    • tonak1 republicans have poisoned the water in flint and bankrupt kansas. They only care about their donors not americans or america

    • I dont think voting them out is enough. Look at the similar, cult churches with all those pedos moved around accompanied by all those lies and excuses.. all those poor victims.
      We clearly see how casual conservatives are with pedophilia. Changing societal positions isnt going to save America from RWNJ evils.

  7. Joe Biden released over 20 years of tax returns. Where are Trump’s?

  8. Trumplicans are everything I taught my kid NOT to be.

    • Carolyn Willett | November 18, 2019 at 6:37 PM | Reply

      Great Mom. Best advice you can give them.

    • Richard Hammonds | November 19, 2019 at 8:10 AM | Reply

      YOU AND UR WORDS ARE MUSIC TO PUTINS EARS WAKE UP STOP BEING BRAIN DEAD PUTIN FED DEMON RAT JUST THINK AMERICA DOING SO MUCH BETTER AFTER 2 TERMS OF SHAME OBAMA WHY DOES RUSSIA AND DEMON RATS HATE THAT ????JUST THINK

    • What these people are not understanding is that there are republicans and democrats and then there are Trumplicans. A category of their own. Horrible people !

  9. When Trump, or his minion, tells a lie, they are speaking their native tongue. Treason is, of course, their regional accent.

      J Devlin , nope I’m not mad , only losers are mad , so how does it feel loser ? 😝

      @Carrie Just like no one took Yovanovitch seriously, considering she had no firsthand knowledge of the phone call in question.

    • dona van raalte | November 17, 2019 at 6:42 AM | Reply

      Who started this lame post? You or that other person that doesn’t know the definition of “treason”? It appears all the time in these threads. It’s not that clever. They are all traitorous for sure, but constitutionally, treason is “giving aid or comfort to the enemy.”

    • Prove it! If it is as obvious as the MSM make it out to be, you should have plenty of evidence. But no DEM has, as it’s just MSM garbage. You forget that the law was changed about 15 years ago that stopped Media outlets from publically creating false information. Now it’s considered to be just ‘entertainment’ so they can say and do anything they want. Hence the current state of misrepresentation. So don’t go thinking your getting the facts. That would be like watching Springer and believing that it’s all real!

  10. Republicans are acting now as agents of PUTIN.

    • What was once a respectable party of great grandparents is know a party of traitors! The last good one was McCain. Now it’s very few at all.

    • I think you’re a couple of conspiracy theories behind. The whole Putin collusion thing turned out to be Obama’s failed attempt to stop Trump from becoming President.

  11. Why is anyone surprised by the Trumpublican lies in the impeachment hearing? These former Republicans are a disgrace for their lies.

    • @앤더슨프란 , wow you have not been watching the ENTIRE impeachment hearing. She was fired for telling the New President of Ukraine not to listen to President Trump because he would be impeached.
      I would have fired her as well.

    • @Mike Hall These are multiple accounts of people with bipartisan integrity and high ranking officials giving a response of what they heard and seen from their viewpoint. You can call it whatever you want but just like in any trial, consistent evidence adds across multiple accounts to be more likely true than not. Lies will conflict with others testimony. As if all the pieces to the puzzle fitting perfectly, This is exactly what we have here and why the evidence keeps building against Trump. There’s only one explanation: He’s guilty. No matter if the Trumpublicans want to believe it or not. Facts and evidence ALL support it plain as day. I hate to say it, but those Trumpublicans who are still fighting the facts at this point either are not paying attention or must have some mental issues like Trump himself SERIOUSLY. Because this is a very critical matter for our nation’s future.

      @Mike Hunt your response doesn’t reflect your understanding of the process either. Are you buying the Lies and staging of the Republicans? As I already mentioned, These are multiple accounts of people with bipartisan integrity and high ranking officials giving a response of what they heard and seen from their viewpoint. The Democrats are going by the book with a proper investigation. You can call it whatever you want but just like in any trial, consistent evidence adds across multiple accounts to be more likely true than not. Lies will conflict with others testimony. As if all the pieces to the puzzle fitting perfectly, This is exactly what we have here and why the evidence keeps building against Trump. There’s only one explanation: He’s guilty.

I hate to say it, but those Trumpublicans who are still fighting the facts at this point either are not paying attention or must have some mental issues like Trump himself SERIOUSLY. Because this is a very critical matter for our nation’s future. Something needs to be done or else Russia has succeeded in this attack on America and those who succumbed to their brainwashing.

    • @Kyeol Williams, Russians?? Brainwashing?
      Wow. Read the Mueller Report.
      The truth of the matter is no law has been broken. I studied Law in College. Feelings are not Fact or evidence. Fact is any Ambassador can be removed at any time by the President of the United States. The President can also inquiry about any wrong doing or corruption! Fact is that foreign aid take time to ship that much Cash to foreign countries and was sent without ever getting a reply on Creepy Joe Biden and little creepy joe jr. Whom btw had been Dishonorable Discharge from the Military for Cocaine!!!! There is no whistleblower. Schiff made it up!! Republicans are asking when do we question the main witness?? The only Real Witness! All these other witnesses heard everything 3rd and 4th hand!!
      Fact is all you liberals are still butthurt over Hilary losing the election and are will to make up anything you can to get your way. The funny thing is Republicans own Senate where it dies anyway. Morons should think ahead. 😄😄😄

  12. Republicans are excellent at looking pathetic. It starts with their commander.

    • Dominus Vobiscum | November 19, 2019 at 12:40 PM | Reply

      @esj8341 Exactly right. I feel bad that they wasted her time, actually.

    • @Dominus Vobiscum Up to now, Democrat’s lastest version of Impeachment or Bust has been a waste of time, money, confusing and BORING. imho – Sondland will be the only witness with anything more than a hearsay opinion to offer. We shall see.

    • Dominus Vobiscum | November 22, 2019 at 1:34 PM | Reply

      @esj8341 And now we can see that there were no more “bombshells,” despite the fact that the MSM had decided a priori that these testimonies would be bombshells rather than the duds they actually were. I don’t buy for one second that David Holmes could hear a conversation in a noisy restaurant that wasn’t on speaker phone…

    • ​@Dominus Vobiscum The only bombshell going off was during Swallwell’s interview on Hard Ball.

    • @Dominus Vobiscum Dems still going to vote to impeach. I am looking forward to the Senate trial.

  13. Republicans look so weak and pathetic. This is what happens when you try to defend that which can’t be defended.

    • @andrew chambers – you wish you’d finished the 8th grade. Try again, Boris.

    • please prove what you are accusing or shut the heck up…demon rats the corrupt and liars…yhey mad e this country a garbage by allowing illegals to come …they are murderers by late term abortion…sick people….demorats are of satan

    Lol. Republicans really don’t like when the shoe is on the other foot.

  15. They are losing and they know it.

  16. “A SCIF is the opposite of a restaurant in Kiev” 😆

    I know it’s like shooting fish in a barrel, but the savage (and hilarious) burns just keep coming

  17. Y’all Nicolle Wallace just called Jim Jordan “her” 0:04 “Jim Jordan still hasn’t found her jacket” savage

    “some” lies? that’s all they do is lie.

  19. NICOLE WALLACE: “Jim Jordan still hasn’t found her jacket.”

    Freudian slip? 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  20. Republicans are all cooking their own gooses when it comes to election 2020.

    • jerrymgrman Have you been watching these hearings? Absolutely ZERO evidence! Dems are going down HARD in 2020!

    • jerrymgrman
      can either of you 2 star witnesses confirm there was an act that deserves impeachment? anyone? shout it out!
      😂

    • please prove what you are accusing or shut the heck up…demon rats the corrupt and liars…yhey mad e this country a garbage by allowing illegals to come …they are murderers by late term abortion…sick people….demorats are of satan
