  1. Hey, Chris here — why do you think the Founding Fathers were so detailed in their outline of impeachment in the Constitution?

    • Because they wanted the future america to rewrite its government and not preserve it, but knew people wouldnt do that so they had to make it long lasting

    • When are you going to mention the Ohio shooter was a Democrat and Elizabeth Warren supporter… better leave that out I guess 😉

      Literally every video from CNN is fake news

    • @Eco Geek not really it exposed the jihad squad and socialist dem party. They side with Muslims over Christians every time.

    • @Eco Geek Hillary losing and the Clinton’s losing power triggered the left. Its obvious they are the party of hate.

    How about we have a hands-on teaching lesson. Get on it.

  3. Impeachment didnt take long for clinton!🤔

    • @Derrick Jones 😂😂😂😂

    • A blue dress drenched with with slick willies cumsies is a lot more evidence of wrongdoing than the fake Russian collusion hoax

    • @L. R. That’s not why he was impeached, Dim Bulb. He was impeached because he lied to the Congress and the American people while under oath. Trump is guilty of much, much more. The problem is that there isn’t the will in Congress (at the moment) on either side of the aisle to impeach him. That could change.

    • @Mockery Channel But… Trump has done all that and MORE! Much, much MORE!! LMAO!

  4. I hate when nancy say ” impeachment is so divisive ” as if liberals and conservatives are holding hands , hugging each other and United now . WE ALREADY DIVIDED …

      @The Famous rleon!!! Blacks have slaughtered four times as many Americans than died in Vietnam in the past four decades.

      @Anonymous Person This person is probably from California! A quote from the LA Times…”The slice of Los Angeles’s population dealing with mental illness is believed to be about 25 percent—relatively modest when compared with San Francisco, where an estimated 45 percent are struggling with mental illness, but still a substantial portion of the total population.” California is NUTS!

    • @Shin Lin That’s a lame post. Ad hominem attacks reveal that you lack real arguments to defend your position.

    • Jemel. Traitor Trump is uniting the country: Against his racism and demagoguery.

    • @Doran Volzke Traitor Trump is trying to divide the country following Putin’s orders.
      But, his efforts are backfiring.

      A wide coalition of Americans from all walks of life are enraged by traitor Trump’s incendiary and ultranationalistic hate speeches at his mob-style campaign rallies.

      But, we are watching him.
      Traitor Trump has been explicit and clear in his hateful rhetoric.
      His own words are sinking him.

      No need for the media to lie.

      I have seen and heard it from the horse’s mouth.

  5. It’s because YOU BUFFOONS are making MONEY hand over fist!
    Seriously… _How do you expect to follow this act??!!_

    Remind me why do we need to talk about this?

    “a Kingdom divided in itself will not stand long”☝️😉

  8. Apparently not with Nancy Palosi.

    What are you going to do when congress members are indicted for real crimes related to Epstein?

    • Ultimation Thunder | August 6, 2019 at 12:27 PM | Reply

      The lawsuit said that Trump repeatedly initiated sexual contact with the plaintiff, then on the fourth encounter at one of Epstein’s parties, tied her to a bed, exposed himself, and “forcibly raped” her.” During the course of this savage sexual attack, Plaintiff loudly pleaded with Defendant Trump to stop but with no effect,” the document alleges. Trump allegedly responded to her pleas by violently striking her in the face with his open hand and screaming that he would do whatever he wanted.

    • Ultimation Thunder | August 6, 2019 at 12:28 PM | Reply

      Epstein and Trump allegedly threatened her to not “ever say anything if she didn’t want to disappear like Maria (another minor who had gone missing after being sexually assaulted).”

    • Ultimation Thunder | August 6, 2019 at 12:34 PM | Reply

      @Eric Larsen So you say -> Richard C it’s better than sticking your head in the sand like you.

      Yet when Trumps rapes/sex trafficking with Epstein is brought up. This is you -> Or pretending everything is normal which doesn’t work anymore)

      Sound’s like your insane dude. You should get that taken care of.

    • Ultimation Thunder | August 6, 2019 at 12:34 PM | Reply

      Trump publicly acknowledged his relationship with Epstein in an interview with the New York Magazine, and his comments also point to the relationship they shared and appears to be a clear reference to the sex trafficking, “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

  11. Well, you’ll need the senate on board otherwise this is just a virtue signalling waste of time.

  12. Captain Chaos | August 6, 2019 at 11:27 AM | Reply

    LOL Fact is the Dnc Hillary and the Liberal mainstream media all worked together to make sure Trump was the one who would lead the Rep party

  13. Maybe CNN can get higher ratings than a rerun of Gilligan Island if the president gets impeach… what do you think?

  14. house can talk about impeachment 24/7 and investigate until the cows come home. the senate aint going to impeach him. ever.

  15. basher basher | August 6, 2019 at 12:02 PM | Reply

    Republicans are frothed up murderers. This whole anti-impeachment theory works only if you impeach tentatively. No other issue matters when a criminal is in charge.

  16. This is how you lose all of your viewership…

  17. How is Baltimore copying up any updates??????
