    Just a suggestion for MSNBC. If you are going to allow the DNC to dictate your agenda then perhaps you should at least put it in your own words. And it is the height of laziness to just put the talking points on the screen and make your viewers read them directly. How about doing a little investigating of your own and check out BOTH sides. If you are told something has been debunked or discredited, then ask by whom and share that with your listeners. Or you can stay in your “Safe” place and report what you are told.

    what happened to the paid for fake dossier of Russia collusion ? the whores that was proved to be paid for by the dems to smear Trump, nothing there , but the dems keep trying to fabricate a crime of what ever kind they can, they will never stop, we will have to put up with this for 4 more years.

  • carlos sanchez

    Not one shred of proof that Trump did a single thing wrong or illegal, What is fact is that Biden, while VP, did the exact this that they claim Trump did. Thus proving this entire thing is a joke, just like the Mueller report. Spin it all you want, Trump will not be impeached and will be POTUS for the next 5 years

    To all of the Rusian Pupet supporters , in case you don't understand he has meet both crimes criteria
    BRIBERY AND TREASON , one with Ukraine and the other with Russia

    America has been losing since 1920 when they allowed women to vote… now look at our government talkin about feelings and smearing making America look weak… women dont belong in leadership positions

  • huckle berry

    Dems, you guys are pathetic. First its Russian collusion, then hookers, then tax evasion, then quid pro quo, now its bribery. A complete sham. TRUMP will win again in 2020 by a landslide. Then Don Jr 8 years.

  • paradigm respawn

    Trump has got Schiff's Team of Trained Monkeys jumping thru Flaming Hoops & Bringing him the Cash Box! That Feel When Everything you do is so Obviously Wrong & you just can't get out of that Muddy Rut.

  • Margo

    So…the deponent is off the hook? He/ she doesn't face any repercussions; it's just tacked on to another article of impeachment? How is that holding the individual accountable by just passing it off by saying they are not to blame? They're adults, aren't they?

  • Jay Gibson

    They will spin this today.
    Nobody watches news on Sat.
    Then the talking heads shows on Sun. generate next weeks “news” cycle.

    Doesn't any one listen to their own words when defending trump.When they claim that proper protocols were not followed they are living a double standard because the Ukraine military request trump says talk to Rudy Giuliani and not go threw proper channels.It seems in every word of any defense of trump are the crimes that republicans themselves are or have committed.The more the republicans disobey the law the more higher people of the party I feel are looking like the ones actually committing the crimes and their just putting it on trump .Abuse of power should be charged against trump and top GOP senators and staff.We The People Can Clearly See Obstruction Of Justice Against trump,gram,mc Connell Paul,and so on.We The People Will Never Forget What has been done by republicans to destroy our constitution and our country.Republicans have severely damaged the party and those of us that used to be in that party.Disgusted by their lack of common sense when it comes to how clearly they themselves are making the Republican Party look,how they are showing their true colors when it comes to their supporters, like life long supporters in their defense arguments.Gram made it quit clear the he thinks we are too stupid to understand what quid pro quo really means,too stupid really Gram let's see how stupid we really are when we vote BLUE instead of RED Come NOVEMBER 2020! Im just exhausted of the crime laden white house,the lies,the gibberish defenses,THE LIES,
    THE LIES,THE LIES!! It's crystal clear what needs to be done to end the his train wreck of a president and save what's left of the country we once were So Proud Of!!!! Impeach Donald Trump!

  • INNOVA ZION

    The day will come, when we all shout in the face of Donald Trump and company……………
    " YOU ARE FIRED "
    He is nothing, but an……

    THIS IS LIKE THE CIVIL CASE OF OJ SIMPSON WHO MURDERED HIS WIFE! Yes he was Guilty of Murder by Circumstance and had to Pay 26 Million Dollars for the Murder of his wife and her friend.

  • N Kel

    poor vindman….if trump wins…he will never make general 1 day, any day. And how humiliating that he has to obey ,take his marching orders…from a draft dodging stinky fingered creep. I wonder if any females fans of trump secretly wish for said treatment of ''stinky''?

  • Watcher

    Corroborated testimony proved:
    Trump has violated his oath of office, betrayed this nation, and
    committed the impeachable acts of bribery, extortion, abuse of power,
    and obstruction of justice. Any president having done so must be impeached and should be REMOVED https://youtu.be/6Xk75GuY_9Q

  • Ray Lo

    So now it's bribery?
    Democrats are really grasping at straws!
    I'm no Trump fan.
    But this whole thing is so obvious…the Democrats are just trying to get rid of Trump – or damage him going into 2020!
    What he said on the Ukraine phone call did not rise to the level of "treason, bribery or high crimes and misdemeanors"!
    Let the American people decide in 11 months and two weeks!

  • Dave Miller

    MSDNC you people are ridiculous… 90 percent negative coverage of our president, we have the transcript we dont need a trial because nowhere did Trump say investigate or your not getting money

  • Wayne West

    The DNC and the Fake news Industrial Complex have lost their minds.

    This is all Fake news, big spin, little facts.

    The president investigating the corruption that started the Russia Collusion hoax and the Bidens' conduct in Ukraine cannot be illegal.

    Clearly the swamp's fake news media does not want the conduct of Vice-president Joe Biden investigated but here is some real news for the fake news media like MSNBC.

    The fact that the Ukrainian prosecutor was corrupt does not mean that he was not investigating Burisma and Hunter Biden and does not mean that Joe Biden did not have that in mind when he sought to remove him from office.
    In fact Rudy Giuliani has indicated that Hunter Biden's lawyers indicated to the new Ukrainian prosecutor that the US had embellished the claims about the corruption of the fired prosecutor.

    Did the US mission do so because he was a threat to Biden's son ? Was the opinion that other western governments and the IMF had of the fired prosecutor substanially due to the US embellishing claims of his corruption ?
    These are important questions that the swamp's fake news media like MSNBC do not want asked or answered.

    The attempt at impeachment is a corrupt partisan sham by corrupt politicians and corrupt media houses like MSNBC who are seeking to protect the swamp.
    As they say "follow the money" and the Chinese putting 1.5 billion dollars in a company associated with Hunter Biden is putting a lot of money in the swamp.
    No fret the co-conspirators in the Russia collusion hoax including members of the DNC, FBI, CIA and the swamp's fake news media are going to be exposed

  • adio senghor

    Yeah but, can't The Senate just arbitrarily say "no" despite whatever incriminating evidence there is?
    Can anyone confirm this for me?
    I'm hoping that isn't true.

  • QuasiELVIS

    Do her hair, shirt colour, ear rings etc relate to any particular country? (Ghana is a wild guess but I have no idea)
    Looks awesome.

  • Elizabeth Newcity

    There haven't been any first hand witnesses because Trump has ordered them to NOT testify and ordered the State department to withhold their notes and phones!
    When Republicans only defense is to obstruct the witnesses and evidence, then complain about not having those first hand witnesses and evidence, they are sunk.
    The Republicans can refuse to do their constitutional duties, but We The People will, come election day 2020.
    #VoteTrumpOut2020

  • Paul Henri

    They don't want them to testify because we all know around the world cuz we know about American politics more than the Americans know them themselves and that's a fact. You can tell that fact by the 52% of Americans who want them to be replaced as president cuz if the facts are true any democracy on this planet would removed a person like Donald Trump a long time ago. They don't want them to testify is because they cannot plead the Fifth. You can claim the 5th if no one else knows about the conversation but the problem that the Republicans have is that there are multiple witnesses to those conversations. Which means that they have to answer the question our face jail time.

  • George Layton

    Jim Jordan knows very well it was a culmination of events that led Taylor to his understanding of what was being ask of Ukraine. Vote these lying fricks out of office.

  • HAB'S 25'th CUP

    YIKES!!..OMG…Well I tried being an open minded viewer & switch to a little NBC for a change. I click the link and OMG! …this loud baboon of a she male news caster in a clown outfit ambushed my ears & eyes!

  • Crinosis

    For Trump wrong doing is the total opposite, because a white supremacist will always think he/she is right about everything. He does not remember that his role model Hitler died like a dog whimpering and crying and screaming all the way. Most white supremacists die this way.

  • DianeD08

    All the administration is guilty of obstruction of justice. All are treaters to the USA. Explain what they gains to do that. Defending the criminal president. After this impeachment and remove president. Everyone must be indicted for treason again their country.

  • ss

    Trump, the Republican administration and the Republican Party itself, are foreign owned assets. They are working against American interests.

  • Tee New Orleans YnG God

    Trump is guilty, he will throw any person in his administration under the bus. This is not about Democrat and Republican, this about securing the safety of this country at any cost and I believe Trump is using the country like a scratch off to see what he can get away with and what he can't. If you had nothing to hide you wouldn't care about a witness telling a lie.

  • biophillie

    Come on libs, what did trump do that constitutes “Bribery”? Be specific. Can you?

    When the “Bribery” accusation doesn’t pan out, what will be the next charge tomorrow? On n on n on.. Keep throwing stuff at the wall, maybe you will get something to stick. Nope, the media keeps setting you up for disappointment and you keep believing them.

    Is it even possible for you to acknowledge any of the good things, Trump has made happen? Can you say just one thing positive?

    Habitual liars eventually get caught. Time and truth are not on Schiff’s side..

    If this is clearly an open and shut case, why did your boy Schiff feel he needed to lie about what was said in the “phonecall”? Why did he feel he needed to make stuff up that was not there?? When he was called out for blatant lying, he says it was just a funny “parody”, not a lie. So, that means he has to lie about the lie. You say everyone should testify. Then why wont Schiff testify about him setting up this mess just like when he supposedly had info on collusion with russia? Because you are tards. You are too lazy to do your own dam research and keep relying on the fake news media that keeps getting you all excited that maybe you “have Trump this time”! He’s going to jail for sure this time! And big fat zeros. More disappointment for you libs time and time again. You are saps for the news media and are so worked by them you don’t know what is real and what isn’t anymore. read the transcript.. dont be so lazy that you get your info from commentators on video all the time. lazy do nothing dems. lazy lazy lazy, but you know everything! amazing…

    Why keep testifying in fraudulent cases? It requires hiring expensive lawyers, every time, out of their own pockets. You can blame the Mueller fiasco for no more playing along.. Everyone asked, everyone around the president testified and most testified on numerous occasions. After a while, no one is going to participate in this harassment. The sky is falling tards.

    Read the transcript folks. Your hate for trump will lead you down the road to disappointment again, you superiorily tolerant, loving democrats.

    Again, where is the bribery? Be specific pls..

  • Steve McFarland

    Trump was kind enough to offer a first-person real time sample of his character during the testimony today! Hey, Thanks, Prez!

  • Richard Alevizos

    Wonder why the Jeff Epstein murder investigation has been forgotten? 1000 names in his black book…498 members in congress. How many republicans are on Jeff Epstein's little list of perverts to extort? And didn't Vladimir Putin and WikiLeaks get a hold of the videos and photos of all those people with those little girls and boys? And thus Trump and anybody else, especially republican congressmen (I doubt Pelosi is on Jeff Epstein's little list of perverts to extort) are being secretly extorted and blackmailed by Russia?

  • Grand Man

    The Americans better get rid of Trump or get use to living under dictatorship and start dismantling the the Statue of Liberty seeing there will be no Liberty🗽🗽🗽🗽🗽🗽

  • Stephen Long

    Trump will want someone like Jordan to become President after him to stop any federal investigations on Trump and his family. If the Democrats get in then Trump will be judged and maybe Jordan and the Ohio incident may be investigated properly.

  • Brad Gies

    Trump has NEVER followed the law, so It's quite funny that what's bringing Trump down is that as President he HAS to follow the law,, while Trump assumed that as President he could do anything he wanted.

    As a conman (I know he claims to be a businessman but he's always been a conman), he was able to break all kinds of laws because nobody was watching.

  • Colin Mahoney

    Here's an idea how Republicans can really teach the Democrats a lesson they will never forget!

    Can you imagine the grandeur of Acting President tRump, his Cabinet, and every Republican Politician and their supporters gathering together in one place for a huge day of Protest against the Democrats the likes of which has never been seen anywhere in the history in the world?

    Then at the stroke of MIDDAY at the conclusion of one of Acting president tRumps great rally speeches they all Join together in a mass ritual of SEPPUKU!

    Now that would go down in World History as the Day that The USA became "SANE"

  • Will Storm

    To be clear no one can stop you from obeying a lawful subpoena from Congress. trump may threaten he may cajole but at the end of the day people like McGahn should be charged for not appearing. The law is not on the presidents side but its the law that trump has attacked and he should pay the penalty. Obstruction and power overreach are impeachable.

  • mark prater

    So since the DOJ is headed by Trump's apointee, we therefore must accept that the DOJ will not enforce ANY laws as they pertain to Republican lawbreakers?
    Really?
    So they can just ignore Congressional Subpoenas with no penalty?
    Bill Barr cannot be held accountable for his Dereliction of Duty?
    If this is the case, our Government is clearly in need of overhaul.

  • T S

    By Trump's orders to not show up at the impeachment hearing 's is holding the American people hostage and that should be grounds for impeachment all by itself! Russia is moving against our country and the head leader of this act of war is Putin and Trump!! It should be clear as crystal to any American who can think for themselves!!!

  • Sussie, Spain

    I have never heard of such strange allowens in hearings, "you can block witnesseses"?! This strange system belongs in dictatorships, this you see in mafia hearings where witnesses have to have bodyguards. Is this normal in your country?

  • Ann van de Kew

    A girl walks into a bar near Trump Tower in Manhattan, sits down, and says: "Give me a beer. I've had a rough day at work."
    The bartender asks: "Oh? What do you do?"
    The girl replies: "I take care of the Trump children and the dogs of the Trump family."
    The bartender asks: "Tough job, huh?
    The girl says: "Yeah. All that inbreeding has led to low intelligence and bad temperaments.
    And the dogs aren't too smart, either.

    Impeachment Inquiry Testimony From Timothy Morrison, Jennifer Williams Released

    Timothy Morrison, deputy assistant to Trump, told impeachment investigators late last month that Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, informed top Ukrainian officials that both a coveted White House meeting and U.S. military aid were contingent on a public announcement about investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

    His testimony surrounding the quid pro quo with Ukraine backs up the public testimony given this week by acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor. 

    Both Morrison and Jennifer Williams, a top aide to Vice President Mike Pence, listened in on the July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

    On a day when America celebrates its independence from tyranny, Republicans broke with precedent to meet with a tyrannical regime that tried to undermine American democracy.

    This is not The Onion: Eight members of Congress, all Republicans, spent America's Independence Day in Russia.

    Seven senators — John Kennedy (R-LA), Richard Shelby (R-AL), Steve Daines (R-MT), John Hoeven (R-ND), John Thune (R-SD), Jerry Moran (R-KS), and Ron Johnson (R-WI) — and one House member, Kay Granger (R-TX), are all in Moscow over the Fourth of July holiday for talks with Russian lawmakers and officials.

    Russian lawmaker Vyacheslav Nikonov described the meeting as "one of the easiest ones in my life," and claimed that election meddling was only brought up "in general form" and was resolved quickly.

    Republicans also met with Sergey Kislyak — the same Sergey Kislyak who secretly met with numerous members of the Trump campaign, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Kislyak is now a member of the upper house of parliament.

    The U.S. intelligence community has been very clear that Russia interfered with the 2016 presidential elections in order to help Trump get elected.

    Trump, however, continues to publicly cozy up to Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. He even insists that we should believe Putin when he says Russia had nothing to do with election meddling.

    And while the GOP-led Senate Intelligence Committee quietly released a report saying that Trump is wrong, the Republicans "investigating" this issue in the House have loudly backed Trump for months, often using smears and conspiracy theories to do so.

    It's now clearer than ever: the GOP party line is to support Trump no matter what, and to look the other way as Russia actively tries to destroy American democracy.

    I hope my fellow Americans will pay attention to the impeachment process!!!! Trump is destroying our country!!!! 🇺🇸

  • Andrea Peters

    Republicans should want to here from mulvany and bolton and all the others being obstructed. Maybe clear things up a bit. Instead of spinning the narative. Does trump even have a defense for this acusation. Just some questions i have for Republican on the committee.

  • Jean Redman-Roberts

    Trump abused presidential power by soliciting a bribe from Ukraine to influence U S 2020 election. By all means impeach. REGISTER AND VOTE

    Thanks, Joy, Congressman Ciccilline, Counselor Vance, Ms. Tanden. I’ll add a a repost from a bit back, on FB:
    It’s even worse, B K.
    Trumpie extorted, in violations of the Emoluments Clause and of Federal Election Laws, the foreign smearing of a domestic opponent, as well as the Ukraine’s promotion of a quickly debunked conspiracy theory, launched in mid-2016, by Puppetmaster Putin’s sidekick, indicted (in absentia) Konstantin Kilimnik, not just in that call, but in a long running conspiracy involving pro-Russia actors in the Ukraine back to the Yanukovich crowd.
    On this side, besides indicted-and-arrested mobster Ukrainians Furman and Parnas, there were private citizen Rudi Giuliani as Shadow SecState (thanks, Pompeo, you dumb Schmuck!), profiteering SecEnergy Rick Perry, Mick Mulvaney (old Mr. Pay for Play, the guy who ran the CFPB to destroy it, as Director of OMB who held back the Aid, and Oh, yeah: “acting” Chief of Staff!)!!!

    And Sondland? A rich “small-business / big-donor” who bought himself in well over his head, and can’t even keep straight which lies he’s telling today!

  • Bill H

    One of the reasons the Mueller Report took so long to get finished was, every time they thought they'd be done in two more weeks, Trump kept pilling on more offenses quicker that they could write them up. If backstage is anything like what we're seeing in public, he still is.

    If 45 has nothing to hide,why not allow the people pertinent to the proceedings to testify? What is he and his administration afraid of if they have nothing to hide?

    Toxic Traitor Trump and Republicans are dividing this nation, pitting Americans against each other, inciting a second civil war. We've already witnessed the resulting right-wing violence, and it seems certain we will very regrettably see more before Trump is removed, one way or another. Respect OLC opinion and underlying reasoning to a point, until there comes a time like now, when this clown urgently needs to be arrested for self-evident crimes–some even committed publicly–purely as a prudent measure to prevent any more further damage to the nation.

  • M G

    Only two defense for the Castrati party: 1) "Look, look over there.. a Squirrel…" and 2) "How can the President be guilty of blackmailing the Ukrainian President… He can't even spell Ukraine and doesnt even know where it is…." Every one will believe that.

  • M G

    I think the reason BOLTON is NOT testifying is because he has a deal signed up with the book publishing company and if he talks about it before the publication of the book then his deal will fall through.. and that is why he needs the subpoena as a crutch to come forward and testify.. So the House should send him a subpoena and he will come forward and testify… Please spread this info…

  • Corey Jones

    the Democrats also need to call for Stephen miller resignation because he crashed the United States of America immigration system.

  • Jules Seyer

    It offends me to the deepest part of my soul. To hear the Republicans and Trump say "the American people want this or that. As a Army veteran and as a American citizen. They do not or ever will speak for me.
