White House Refuses To Cooperate With Impeachment Probe | Velshi & Ruhle | MSNBC

 

The White House has announced to Congress it has no intentions of cooperating with the impeachment inquiry because it views the inquiry as illegitimate. Stephanie Ruhle is joined by Washington Post White House Bureau Chief Philip Rucker, former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade, and former Congressman Donna Edwards to discuss whether the president is right in deeming the inquiry illegitimate and what Congress’ next step is. Aired on 10/09/19.

  1. I don’t remember Obama having to hire impeachment lawyers

  2. This is not the behavior of an innocent person.

      @Debra Thompson just name one genius, the great Mueller had a special cancel with the entire FBI at their disposal 3 years and they couldn’t find one single crime on the president..fact, yet you have multiple. Come back to reality, you’re lying, and you are fake news, a mockingbird minion for the fake media. Congratulations!

    • @Maharajji NKB You are not telling the whole story but then you are an aggressively ignorant liar so that makes sense.
      You conveniently left out the part where Sondland had a five hour gap in his response and *a record exists of him calling the White House during that time* . That explains his lawyerly response to 1) stop putting incriminating questions and details in writing and 2) that gilding the liliy response extolling Trump’s sudden new found integrity LMFAO!

    • No, but democrats are acting like a power hungry mob.

    • @Hazel McCloy
      Trump squats inside their mind’s like Gollum, rubbing his precious ring. 😳

    • @Joy Phillips

      Oh yes, wait a minute Mister Schiffman
      (Wait)
      Wait Mister Schiffman

      Please Mister Schiffman , look and see
      (Oh yeah)
      If there’s a subpoena in your bag for me
      (Please, Please Mister Schiffman)
      Why’s it takin’ such a long time
      (Oh yeah)
      For me to hear from that boy of mine

      @SMS Enterprise oh they read it alright, then put their spin and lies into it so it would fit their agenda.

    • @SMS Enterprise Oh poor little crybaby. You clearly didn’t read the Mueller report LOL! Maybe you missed the part about 10 counts of obstruction of justice or the part where Mueller said that he couldn’t exonerate him? Fake News and lies are all you got and nobody is falling for it.

    • SMS Enterprise | October 9, 2019 at 9:16 PM | Reply

      @Mainely for one ..not Muellers job to exonerate, he is not a Judicial body, investigative only, two 10 counts of obstruction is a complete fabrication, Mueller didn’t have enough evidence to peruse one count let alone 10 genius. 3 years 40 million dollars later and having the entire FBI at his disposal and zero counts of obstruction and, not that it’s a crime, zero collusion.. You are a liar and purveyor of fake news

    i imagine that Trump will be building a bunker underneath the Whitehouse House in a very short while because i don’t see him budging, folks!

    • Alex Hamilton lmao trumpie going BYE BYE very soon

    • JoeyFiveandDimes | October 9, 2019 at 7:29 PM | Reply

      marti-g O ……….   He’ll try to run first, if he gets the chance . Some non-extradition  dictators paradise like Croatia or Dubai . Maybe a Crimean dacha courtesy of Vlad P .  Heck, the Saudi’s took in Idi Amin ( no Jewish Jared, though ). If he can’t run, he’ll blow his own brains out, or have it done for him .

    • I hope the military is on the side of the sane people when it’s time for him to be dragged out of the WH.

  5. Impeach putin’s puppet. End Russia running our white house.

    • @V – Case in point:
      *Only* ‘Russian press’ *were allowed* to film #45 and Putin in July…as Putin joked about “…getting rid…” of reporters.
      And #45 *laughed right along* with the former *KGB agent who rules over* Russia.
      *No* other American President *would’ve allowed* such insults to *our country* and *constitutionally-protected* ‘free press’.
      But #45 loves his -banker- -mentor- ‘like-minded leader’.
      *So* embarrassing for America… 😒

    • End democrats deranged hopes…. We voted them out along with republicans and the “just not Hillary” vote. Do you remember how corrupt democrats were just 4 years ago? Because we do.

    • Trolling for #45, Joy…that’s just, well…
      “Sad!” 😂

  6. Trump is being very transparent, it is obvious he committed crimes.

    • Look we all saw the Ukranian transcript. Biden was mentioned by President Zelensky… not Trump…. it doesn’t take a genius to know that Biden was bragging about getting his son off the prosecution…. Biden screwed himself over…. Adam Schiff screwed over the democrats when he said he had absolute proof forcing Trump to release the transcripts. Democrats are stupid for making themselves out to be liars.

    • What crimes? The ones on the phone transcript? Oh, wait. There aren’t any.

    • Ernesto Ybarra | October 10, 2019 at 6:07 AM | Reply

      Can you really trust the media to tell you the truth most of them are Democrats.

    • @Ernesto Ybarra
      Said democrats are very conservative, like most of DNC, and I don’t need media to see high treason committed on live TV. If you had read constitution just once in your miserable life, then you would know.

    • Ernesto Ybarra | October 10, 2019 at 8:20 AM | Reply

      @jeck jeck obviously you were born with an extra chromosome don’t you get it the media are Democrats so you’re going to get a democratic spin. If they were Republicans you would get it Republican spin. Think for yourself peckerhead

  7. Trump pulled out of Syria to divert focus from his impeachment. He is a traitor and a lying sack of sht. He is guilty of extortion of Ukraine to find dirt on a political opponent.

  8. Deranged Donnie is the best at impeachment.

  9. They are not playing hardball, they are not playing softball, they are playing with no balls at all.

    • Nice!

    • J Blaze

      Text messages released late Thursday night by House Democrats revealed top US diplomats to Ukraine discussing a quid pro quo at the heart of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump: that aid to the country — in the form of either military funding or the president’s support — would be withheld until it did the bidding of the president’s personal political interests.

      “As I said on the phone, I think it’s crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign,” Bill Taylor, a top US diplomat to Ukraine, texted to Gordon Sondland, the US ambassador to the European Union, on Sept. 9.

    • bingbonga binga | October 9, 2019 at 6:43 PM | Reply

      Trump raised his middle finger and told the punks to swivel on it.

  10. Because every body knows people with nothing to hide obstruct justice.

    • @Jeffrey Meade but there is probable cause. You sound like a brainwashed moron sitting around listening to fake Fox news and other bullsh*t conspiracy theories. Also the Mueller “fiasco” clearly stated the reason they did not indict was because of the OLC memo forbidding them. Don’t worry though snowflake, we’ll make sure justice is meted out to Trump and his entire administration!

    • He didn’t obstruct justice… that’s why Trump released the transcripts.

    • Mandelbroth Morten | October 10, 2019 at 9:17 AM | Reply

      @Joy Phillips You are American. You just close your eyes and hold your ears.
      Facts and evidens are forbidden in the most laughable country on earth.

      The whole world have seen him obstruct justice, YOU DUMB, IGNORANT, FK.

      Jeff Harnack You don’t deserve to be a human anymore. It’s just worthless. I bet you believe all of the following claims made by your deluded and pathological orange liar: that he has the biggest inauguration crowd in US history; only lost the popular vote due to millions of illegal immigrations; crime rate in Chicago has increased 180%; wind turbines cause cancer; knows more about ISIS than any general; knows more about technology and outer space than any scientist; a stable genius, self proclaimed; and I must stop here. You can go jump off a cliff.

    • Thinking of #45, eh, ‘racer’…? 🤨
      #45’s *cheated and lied to* his partners, both in business *and* marriage, for decades.
      He even *cheats* at golf, the ‘gentlemans game’. ⛳
      #45 – *So* embarrassing for America… 😒

    I love how everyone thinks that Donald Trump is playing three-dimensional chess when in reality his aides and advisers are just trying to stop him from eating the pieces

    • I heard they have to sidaate him when he flys to prevent him from opening the door as 35000 feet and sucking everyone out the plane!

    • Narcissists can be quite manipulative. They usually play a short game though. And if you’re dealing with someone who has a short deck like Donnie….the house of cards will always fall sooner or later. That’s the most card analogies I have ever used in my life.

    • @john Barry – #45’s *cheated and lied to* his partners, both in business *and* marriage, for decades.
      He even *cheats* at golf, the ‘gentlemans game’. ⛳
      #45 – *So* embarrassing for America… 😒

    Old legal saying: “If you have the facts on your side, pound the facts. If you have the law on your side, pound the law. If you have neither, pound the table.”
    Trump and Co. are not just pounding the table, they are trying to flip it.

      @Ron Kek yang myself? Sounds like Chinese food or not so happy ending for you. Hillary Clinton said it best in her emails “democrats are just plain stupid”

      @SMS Enterprise I just read Pelosi’s son was taking money in Ukraine.. So perhaps Pelosi and Biden are trying to get Trump impeached before their Sons go to prison for Ukraine corruption. Thus all the fake charges and drama.

    • SMS Enterprise | October 9, 2019 at 9:07 PM | Reply

      @Closeoutracer and John Kerry’s son ..all connected to corrupt energy companies in the Ukraine, impeachment is their only hope before they all go down.

    • Look we all saw the Ukranian transcript. Biden was mentioned by President Zelensky… not Trump…. it doesn’t take a genius to know that Biden was bragging about getting his son off the prosecution…. Biden screwed himself over…. Adam Schiff screwed over the democrats when he said he had absolute proof forcing Trump to release the transcripts. Democrats are stupid for making themselves out to be liars.

  20. The American people can see through Trump’s lies.
