  1. Moscow mitch has spent years bending and abusing the rules, and just because he says he will follow the rules on impeachment you believe him? Moscow mitch will make a charade of impeachment and try to absolve trump in his swamp; bapstism in his bath water.

  2. And Republicans control the Senate LOL IF they were to actually impeach, the left would be stuck with ultra conservative Mike Pence LOL LOL LOL!!!

  3. Attempted COup by MSNBCannibals is going to cause Trump to invoke the insurrection act (the American people are behind TRUMP) THE JFK assassination was a coup as well .. JFK was killed by compromised pedofiles just like MSNBCannibals

  4. Mitch will ask Don if he did anything wrong, Don says 'No', Mitch says 'OK I believe him", Don goes back to wrecking the Nation and ruining America's reputation around the globe.

  5. If this does go to impeachment does Donald Trump have to take the stand, because if he does you know he is his Own Worst Enemy you'll get mad shoot off his mouth, and it will be the end of him

  6. The rules also state the the chief justice presides over the trial, but who is the prosecutor? Someone from the House, the Senate, or the DOJ?

  7. I sincerely hope that in the final analysis, McConnell and the Senate majority will choose to honor their U.S.Senate Oath of Office: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."

  8. Moscow Mitch and the Silent Senate Republicans will surely follow the rules… Acquit the Orange Turd and he'll finish his term!

  9. Trump's not being impeached no matter WHAT he says no matter WHAT the media reports (told to report). Secret operation using Trump as bait to entrap corrupt power abusers in both parties now leaked in my profile. Learn who's using him to do their dirty work and the huuuge reason why.

  10. So when can we expect the heavily promised and heavily promoted Don Jr White House lawn arrest to be coming? LMAO. You people are delusional idiots.

  11. Because Senate Republicans know how to follow the rule of law, unlike House Democrats. I hope it goes to a Senate trail. Get all the facts on the table, not just one side.

  12. 1. t'rump opened himself to blackmail, putting our country at risk.
    2. t'rump withheld military aid to an ally at war with Russia, putting thousands of US soldiers at risk.
    3. t'rump solicited help from a foreign country to help him win an election.
    And yet, we have to discuss if 20 republicans will vote to impeach this clown? 🤔 Now that's sad. 👎

  13. "Follow the rules..?" Hmmm… Who's rules? Trump's, or The Senate's rules? These greedy garbage pail rejects twist their words to suit their bank accounts. The only reason McConnell would follow the rules, would to be to protect himself from something worse.

  14. Why does Mitch look so much more undead than usual? Not a rhetorical question. This man either has really bad allergies, or the devil has been paying him visits at night.

  15. And more Fake Impeachment trials to come. Socialist/Liberalism doesn't convince with logic. It can't, because the policies liberals advocate don't work. So instead, liberals have to use emotion-based ploys and attack the motives of people they disagree with while attempting to keep conservative arguments from being heard at all. Why? Because they have no logical way of convincing otherwise.

  16. What bothers me is if Trump is impeached will he actually be forced out of office? If so will he be immediately arrested for his numerous crimes over the last 2-3 years?

  17. Moscow Mitch blocked every job package the Obama administration passed and then accused them of doing nothing, Super Slime !!!

  18. Trump's not only ignorant, but arrogant and utterly lacking in that quality he prizes most in people: loyalty. Nobody likes him.

  19. mitch mcconnel may be a heartless cold republican windbag… BUT he personally does NOT like trump and will have no problem stabbing him in the back, mitch is a creature of the senate… if in back rooms 20 republican senators see trump as a stain, they will surprise you 😉 its the senate, not congress… senators run this country, they can fire a president, they can veto a presidents law, and they can override a presidents veto… the senate runs this country 100%

  20. "AMERICA SEEMS LIKE IT WANTS TO GO TO WAR WITH "AMERICA".."WE" JUST CAN'T GET RIGHT"…"TRUMP" DIDN'T MENTION "CIVIL WAR" FOR NO REASON".."THE STROM IS NO LONGER CALM"

  21. I believe mr McConnell will follow the rules. The law only states the senate has to vote on the articles of impeachment. The loop hole is just to move quickly to a vote and dismiss the articles of impeachment without a "trial" or much discussion.

  22. #MoscowMitch should not be allowed to hold any trial at all. He l, like Trump, has been taking $$$$ from a certain Russian oligarch and made all his problems with the USA go away for crazy $$$$.

  23. why wouldn't mitch allow a senate trial? there's absolutely zero percent chance of trump being found guilty and removed from office. furthermore, chances are very, very good that the democrats would then lose the house for said impeachment. it's basically a win, win for republicans.

  24. The good news is us Progressives only need to take 3 Senate seats from the traitorous GOP to have the majority. With the house locked and 23 GOP Senate seats up for grabs next year. Blue Wave INCOMING!!!!

  25. You just try and screw around during the senate impeachment trial Russian asset Moscow Mitch 🇷🇺💩and the Liberty Bell will toll for you.

  26. I swear, if I have to listen to the same MSNBC nightly news commercial twice every time I watch a clip for much longer I'm going to unsubscribe. At the very least, for the love of all things sacred let us skip it!

  27. Peter Schweier's book, "Secret Empires", wrote all about the Biden family corruption. More people are involved in the Ukraine corruption. The democrats will be exposed, right pelosi? She has an aide that is directly connected to the Ukraine military.

  28. Here's the PERFECT song for Trump, Rudy, and all of Trump's brown nosing politicians. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNcRNQIaJEQ&t=128s

  29. The evidence is overwhelming. By the time the impeachment investigation by the House is over and it gets sent to the Senate, they will have no choice but to remove (not impeach – the House impeaches, the Senate Removes – why can't the news media get that straight?) But what will be the net result of Removal? In a word: Republicans win. Upon Removal, the Republicans would redeem themselves, Mike Pence would become president, Pence would pardon Trump and then run for president in his own right in 2020 vowing to continue the "good works" of Donald Trump and the Republican Party, without the negatives of the orange-haired monster . . . . . Beware of Removal. The Democrats may be shooting themselves in the foot.

  30. It's only a matter of time before Moscow Mitch's days are numbered for being almost as corrupt as Trump himself.

  31. Trump was supposed to drain the swamp of people like Moscow Mitch. Instead, Trump always fails to keep his promises and Moscow Mitch decided to sell his soul to Trump. Double whammy.

  32. Another thing, there's no way the Senate will actually convict Trump. This is just political theater. Impeachment works well in elections, look at what happened when republicans impeached Clinton. The lost the House and Senate, even Nancy Pelosi, and Cory Booker stated as much. Though Booker danced around it a little more than Pelosi.

  33. Moscow Mitch calls himself the Grim Reaper and boasts that the GOP will put party and themselves ahead of country and Constitution. He is corrupt, his wife is corrupt, and he serves Trump/Putin.

  34. I usually agree with your analyses, Ari, but you are off the mark here. "Shall" refers to having the sole power. The Senate MUST have the sole power. But that does not mean that power must be executed.

  35. “….fixing the time for resuming such consideration.” Moscow Mitch will simply fix the time sometime months from now, then postpone it again and again and again.

  36. I was always Democrat and always voted for Democrat candidates. It's enough! not anymore. From day one impeach the president for one reason or another. That does not add up.

  37. We all know what the Senate trial would conclude lol. McConnell is a self and party before country republican politician.

  38. There was nothing wrong with the phone call considering there's already a political agreement between Ukraine and America for the Presidents to exchange information, both sensitive and otherwise. Trump was asking about the fact that Biden had abused his power. The Ukrainian President had even stated there was no pressure, soliciting, or anything out of context within his call from Trump. Any financial aid being given to Ukrainian was already set up and in existence prior to the call. Every time they dig into Trump accusing him of corruption it only ends up revealing a history of buried corruption by the Democrats. This case is no different. Biden took out a personal favor, using his position, to get his son a job through the Ukrainian government. A job his son had no credentials to even be holding. They've gone after Trump since before he was even in office. In two years they haven't done anything but get more desperate to hide their corruption from his digging and exposing of it to the people. There are no grounds, honestly, for impeachment. Beautiful Perception

  39. TAKE THE VOTE SO THE REPUBLICANS CAN SUBPOENA YOUR MORONS, TO ANSWER ENDLESS QUESTIONS FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS ! IMPEACHMENT IS A PIPE DREAM ! 😐

  40. SO I HERE NANCY PELOSI HAS A UKRAINIAN AIDE WITH FAMILY MILITARY TIES ! I BET THAT'S ON THE UP AND UP ! LIKE HUMA , AND FEINSTEIN'S CHAUFFEUR ? SPIES ! 😠

  41. Crazy media crazy democrats no hundred percent proof of impeachment. They wasted so much taxpayer dollars on the Steel Dossier now another circus begins. If somehow Trump is not impeached then all taking part in this crazy decision shall forfeit their pay for hours lost .

  42. As a voter in our United States of America since 1974 I am greatly disturbed by the actions of the house of representatives and the lack of support our President gets from both parties. It resembles to a greater degree every day that the democrats have decided that the "deplorables" as they have called those who voted for President Elect and Serving Donald Trump made a mistake because "we" didn't vote for their choice of Hillary Clinton. 
    So the democrats are doing their best to overturn the legal and proper vote which was taken and seated our 45th President. This mode of thinking and works will in short time remove the protections and freedoms of all of our citizens, the politicians will quickly determine that "since those deplorables will not vote correctly, they should not be allowed to vote".

  43. I did not hear anything saying They absolutely had to hold a trial. You are looking at it thru the Democrat eyes that have been Murdered by Trump everyday.The Democrat eyes that could not imagine 11/2 years McConnel would hold up Obamas Judge Securing the Court for the Conservatives and setting them up for a possible 6-3 Court

  44. As an evidence gathering tool.Get what the the Past, Present and Future Traitor is blocking and Skip the Senate Trial and go straight to where it would lead to( if we did not have A Russian Republican Party- that would have their familys best interest in mind to stay with Trump) after the Senate Trial a Criminal Court-Prosecutor Who will try

  45. one of the top FAKE NEWS stories is above,,,,, real story: White House will NOT cooperate until House holds Vote on Impeachment.
