  1. This man fought for his Country.
    And, Charlatan Cheetos fires mean girl tweets at him.

    • @Deepak R remember? All you remember is when your snap card gets charged. Lazy snowflake.

    • BREAKING NEWS……AL GORE to jump into race to alieve panicked democrats , as election season nears.

    • jarrod L sorry to say I offended you, but I as a kid canvassed for President Reagan. My dad was met him and was a volunteer on his campaign. You need to know that people will not vote for President Trump that know that bribery is a crime. I hope that you find your way back to being a real conservative.

  2. Keep those witnesses safe!

    • E r i c C i a r a m e l l a W h i s t l e b l o w e r !

    • @C. H. so you don’t think there will be more witnesses?

    • @Melissa Tolliver yeah, moron.

      @Len Ovo Someone should start a Go Fund Me Page for the DemocRatic party to send them to an Island where they can Bask in their accomplishments for the American People…An Island like Alcatraz !

    • @F8oK8 possibly, but safety is in question initially. Its a duty to keep them all safe, but if there was a concern it was b4 they actually gave any statement. I think regardless, theyre in the clear, and witnesses have been vetted pretty well. The other witnesses have been illegally stonewalled, so they are out there, and we know their names.

  3. Rudy has a decision to make. He will either turn on Trump, or he will go to prison for Trump.

    Rudy Giuliani… COME ON DOWN!!!ย ย  You are the next game contestant on “Who Wants To Go To Prison For Donald Trump?!?!”๐Ÿ˜ฒ
    It’s a stupid game, filled with stupid prizes!!!๐Ÿ˜„

    The worst thing about all of this B.S… Is the fact that Trump thinks it’s completely fine to-do all of this!

  5. I salute Mr. Kent and Mr. Taylor for coming forward and defying the orders from the White House. They chose country and the constitution over the party of trump.
    History will remember them for their courage and patriotism.

      @Vote him Out There you go again “smarter people than you”! Hmm… how in the world was it even ever remotely possible for you to ever even be able to run a successful business of your own for that many years when you are not able to refrain from hurling insults here on YouTube at someone? That proves that you were not a successful business owner. What proof or evidence do you have that he employed these types of workers as you claim?

    • Rosemary Lehmann | November 19, 2019 at 1:38 AM | Reply

      @Vote him Out The more you ramble on pointing out my faults and the faults of OUR AMERICAN PRESIDENT TRUMP the more YOU ARE EXPOSING YOUR FOOLISHNESS! So, please continue.

    • @Deanna Delmar
      It’s Tuesday morning Media coverage is all over the GOP plan to totally discredit Vindman testimony at all costs! Trumps mob cult camp has completely gone rogue from any moral decency! I’m retired so have the ability to watch it. This is gonna be an all or nothing battle. Vindman isn’t a FAKE soldier, I just hope he’s well prepped for the nasty GOP
      tactics in this downright dirty mud fight. Maybe after America sees how low GOP goes, voters have enough good sense to oust the lot!

    • They’ll be forgot by next week after Trump re-elected all this will be forgotten

  6. I admire the fact that ambassador Taylor was not partial to one side or the other. but straight down the line…he told the truth , he was honest and told them everything he needed to tell them…look at his tie, neither red or blue. a good man. Mr. Kent displayed staight forward answers… Both of these men are true patriots.

    • @somastic69 hmm I still don’t see where my statement is incorrect. I know he didn’t come to a determination. He basically left it for congress to decide and just said ok here’s my evidence. My statement about the policy stands as at one point in time I was correct. Just bc he goes back and forth and then says idk doesn’t mean I’m wrong. With the counts of obstruction its literally all in the report about how he tried to obstruct. Again my statement stands. In the end mueller laid out the case of possible wrong doing by the president and decided that he will not make a determination of guilt nor innocence. Even though trump and allies tried to muddy waters that it was a total exoneration.

    • @somastic69 I don’t think the country thinks he was found guilty. Cause again common knowledge is no determination. I think have the country looks at everything provided and can make an informed decision. At least that’s what people should be doing. Look at facts.

    • jacques mbikila – itโ€™s sad how you bots have an algorithm for when I log in and Iโ€™m actively on my device.

    • I take you silence as accepting you were wrong about Stone. And I thank you about participation in the conversation and sharing with us your list of topics about Russia collected from Maddow.

  7. I donโ€™t see how the republicans can carry the same storyline across the coming days. The Democrats will have new material everyday but what new material will the Republicans bring to the stage?

  8. Trump is all about him and the money: The wall wasnt about inmigrants it was about big contracts for his friends to buld it, It wasnt about the kurds it was about his towers in Turkey, It wasnt about the Bidens corruptions its about his elecction on 2020 its all about him and the money.

    • @David Primeau Trump…If you read my post…I was making a statement…because I bring up color…or gender…does not mean that I am talking about Racism? I think that people can maturely talk about color and gender…but you must realize that racism does exist…whether you want to admit it or not…ignoring something doesn’t mean there are not those who hate people because of their color…gender…religion…

    • @Mattie Johnson
      I don’t think racism is a big factor in our world, neither is sexism, and all other allphobisms. Notice, I say our world, the western world. There is still slavery in Africa, mostly of blacks, and misogyny is rampant in the muslim world and in other places. Homophobia is also a real problem in some African countries.
      When I look outside or take a walk I don’t see a racist or nazi behind every tree, and these issues are used to divide people, not bring them together.
      We are scared about this issue every day by MSM. If MSM reported honestly about these issues we would see that there is still a problem here but it is trivial compared to other parts of the world and trivial in relation to other problems we face.

    • Mattie Johnson | November 18, 2019 at 5:29 PM | Reply

      @David Primeau Slavery and Racism are 2 totally different things…
      You may say, Slavery is not here in the USA…or against the law in the USA. But, hate and racism against other races are here in the USA.
      Not that you would understand that…
      RACISM: prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.
      SLAVERY: Bondage;
      the practice or system of owning slaves.

      @David Primeau you know what If that’s what you want to believe about Trump…That’s on you? But, I want you to think back on the words that I’ve told you when things don’t go as you think…?

    • @Mattie Johnson
      “Not that you would understand that…”
      And why would that be so Mattie?

  9. So how to Dumspter fire fans feel about literal war veterans who became civil servants speaking truth to power? Feels like u may have lost the moral high ground when u start attacking American heroes.

    • yeah ok whatever
      You: General Flynn, a felon who plead guilty to crimes, didn’t get a fair deal!!!
      Treason and allegiance to America: Are we a joke to you??
      Me: yes guys unfortunately Republicans now hate America, the constitution, the law, and children who aren’t white.

    • They never had a moral high ground

  10. I was woke up in the middle of the night to stand guard at my post when Nixon resigned. We were all put on alert status. Nixon was guilty of many crimes. He used pulling out of Vietnam to get re-elected. Nixon promised peace with honor, and we left with the same agreement Nixon had before he was re-elected.. Americans died to get Nixon re-elected. Most of Nixonโ€™s crimes were very similar to Trumps crimes. Itโ€™s like history is repeating itself.

      perry hedges exactly and well said!

    • I love this comment!!!! Well said!

    • Silvergirl_learning_center Are you a learning center or simply a denying center, Silver Girl? All of you examples were found to be, after much investigation and hundreds of hours of testimony, without merit. Yet you excuse this blatant act-one of many, many selfish acts for his own good and NOT the good of the country- without a second thought. Talk about drinking the kool aid! How you people can continue to defend this guy is beyond me. You must be as morally bankrupt as him.

    • โ€œHistory doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme.โ€

  11. When Mr. Taylor and Mr. Kent spoke, it was easy because THEY WERE TELLING THE TRUTH!!!! These are Great Americans!! Thanks, Ari and MSNBC, for your great reporting!!!

      @Liberalovsky Fredo Moscowitch You know, even for a troll, you’re being really lazy.

    • @Aaron Weiser basically to hearsay? Are you drunk coward?

    • @Richard Barber Yes thats the Trump-tards defense. Except everything they said was from the meetings and phone calls they attended The information and orders they were given from there supervisor s was supposedly directly from Trump. Of course those people were ordered not to testify.

  12. Jim Jordan always has that perverted smirk on his face, like a leer. Heโ€™s got no business being in government. Sleazy liar.

    • He should be in prison for covering up the sexual molestation of children

    • ‘Why hasn’t the cover up of that incident in the shower room come back to haunt Jordan? How did he get elected in the first place?

      @Liberalovsky Fredo Moscowitch In reality people of various ideologies & stripes abuse children. The conditions of war also victimize children…. Anyway, it should be of concern period, no matter who perpetrates or enables such crimes. That said if you must throw shade: Epstein died under the watch of Trump appointee William Barr’s Justice Department. Ultimately, he’s at the top of our criminal justice food chain. But the abuse of minors goes beyond party politics.

    • AMEN. He will LIE. And refuse to Really answer the questions…but it will be under OATH ( unless he has his fingers and toes crossed ).

  17. “We do it all of the time, get over it”. I want to hear more about what they’ve been doing all of the time.

  18. If youโ€™re robbing a bank and drop the money before you leave, you STILL robbed the bank.

    • @Medusa Skull
      Nope the investigation crap started with Trump calling for Obama birth cert & Hillary emails, cell calls way back before he ran. Shoes on the other foot now… Lol

    • Vote him Out so now we can’t call out politician’s corruption while being a private citizens, without getting investigated?

    • @Medusa Skull
      I didnt post about
      pvt citizens being investigated. Try again to actually read my previous post!

    • Vote him Out didn’t you say investigation crap started when private citizen Trump called out fake birtha and classified info leak through private email server?

    IF he is so worried about corruption, he needs to look in the mirror and his cabinet and all the people he has put in office and his daughter and son in-law !

  20. Force Trump to testify! As Bill Clinton was forced to do.

      @GREGORY RUSSO What did he do right to say that he didn’t do anything wrong? I seriously can’t think of anything right now that he did that is considered “good.”

    • @atheia kid Actually he can also be supeoned to testify before Congress. But he will take it to court same way he always does to drag it out.

    • @EZZY GREZZY Exactly . Funny that Trump can’t stop bringing up Clinton.
      I think he’s jealous about the oval office BJ … Melania probably has spys everywhere. Lol
