    Let me break it down, short & sweet. One third of Americans worship a demagogue and they absolutely do not care about the law, the Constitution or the precedents being created. Another third detests the Tangerine Tyrant as a pathological liar and narcissistic sociopath. The remaining third (if that) capable of taking in best facts and using logic to reach a reasonable conclusion are either too busy or otherwise occupied to read and understand a 480 page report detailing multiple counts of collusion and well over a hundred contacts with a hostile foreign government (apparently).

    We need to focus on one simple, straightforward crime because our national attention span isn't great enough to overcome Putin's trolls working in tandem with Republican Senators to destroy this great experiment. Those who do not know history are condemned to repeat it. How strange it is that Russia and America both fought against Hitler but now Putin has installed his own fascist demagogue in America (with the willing assistance of so many here.) The 'patriotic' Americans who fought for slavery during the Civil War and who marched for Nazis here during WWII are always under their rocks, ready to spring out and bring back racism and ignorance, usually under the guise of religious belief. Hitler had the blessing of the Pope, Trump has Jerry Falwell Jr. & Paula White.

    I like how Democrats always have to be super careful about every little thing they say or do because of the potential consequences, while Republicans get to just do whatever tf they want with no fear of consequences whatsoever.

    “How Adam Schiff conducted himself”?? He conducted himself with honor & dignity! He kept Republicans from turning the hearings into a circus! He maintained decorum & fleshed out the truth! trump is a criminal!

    I think Jerry Nadler is going to do just fine. As for not including anything from the Mueller report, why not? I mean, seriously. People need to read this thing. trump should be impeached just because of the Mueller report. I will never understand why Speaker Pelosi didn't begin impeachment inquiries after that came out.

    What evidence? Not one witness provided first hand knowledge not one said anything that was a fact I watched the hearings. MSNBC is in fact not giving the truth. Liars. I can hear and I can read. Americans know the truth.

    Well this justice dept aint going to follow any rules as Barr and the DoJ are trumps personal law firm! And the republicans in the Senate will be his jury so he won't be found guilty! So it's up to you people of America. The question now is, Do you want a free democracy where the people decide who governs them? Or.
    Do you want an autocratic fascist government decided by trump, Russia and the GOP, indefinitely? Because this is your choice in 2020. The republican party are Russian quislings, they've taken Russian money! They went to Russia and met with Putin! They're refusing to bring legislation that will stop the Russians from interfering in another election again! They're telling you that your intelligence people should not be believed when they said Russia interfered in the 2016 election and not Ukraine! The AG Bill Barr is telling you not to believe the IG report that says there was no FBI spying on the trump campaign and they had a lawful reason to start those investigations! The AG is not working for you, he is working for trump and the GOP and his sole job is to protect trump and GOP. You have to decide because of the people you elected, only the democrats are trying to stop a president who has abused his power and is a Russian lackey who is doing more for Putin than his own country and people. It's soon going to be your choice, not the GOP! Yours! Do the right thing and save your democracy and country!

    This isn’t about my President. It’s about We The People against the socialist movement in our Country. It’s about our Constitutional Rights and being free Americans. It’s about draining the filthy swamp and DC governmental corruption. It’s about exposing the fake news agenda and the lies they feed the American people. It’s about my grandchildren’s heritage and what I’ll leave behind. It’s about my patriots that sacrificed their lives to protect our freedoms. It’s all about MY Country and OUR rights. So you see…. it isn’t WHO my President is.. it’s WHAT he stands for. 🇺🇸 Trump2020 🇺🇸

    And another mistake you made, Donna Edwards: Impeachment NEVER presents facts to the American people. It presents facts to Senators. Kindly re-read your Constitution. This bunch of Republican Senators isn't going to Impeach Adolph Hitler, let alone Donald Trump. Stop being so stupid.

    Donna Edwards is a Republican. "Democrats shouldn't overstep". Right. We shouldn't overstep, and we should keep on losing. Jump off a cliff. Democrats should overstep to the greatest possible extent. In today's world if you don't fight dirty you are simply saying to the people sitting on the fence "We are apathetic. We don't think we really have Right on our side. We're lukewarm. There's no reason you should join us". To truly show the conviction that the things Democrats care about do matter, I think you have to be willing to burgle a hotel, not because burgling a hotel gives you a strategic advantage (it didn't, Nixon was going to win anyway), but, rather, it shows the world that you're so certain that your side represents the greater good in a time of peril that you wouldn't hesitate to break the law to protect the greater good. Democrats are weak at doing that.

    The sad truth is that 50% of the population has an IQ under 100… And those idiots are all Republicans that vote.  And A seasoned con man like Donald Trump can convince them, GOD appointed him to be US dictator for life.  Thus he can award millions in gov't contracts to his friends, Trump can enrich himself without regard to the Constitution's emolument clause.. Trump can set up tariffs to again enrich himself and his friends. Trump can use his power to extort foreign officials into helping him win an election. We need to make a stronger effort to educate these poor idiots before Trump tells them, we got rid of all the stars on the flag and simply changed it into 3 stripes. Same colors as before but now only three simple stripes; one red, one blue and one white..

    Thank you for sparing us trumps lies.That is not news. Don't air it. His whole strategy in 2016 was to make up lies & then he was voted into office by people who believed those lies. We have to learn from that. Real News stations have to stop giving trumps lies free air time. Finally, a news station that doesn't air his nonsense. It is offensive to hear: hoax, witch hunt, perfect call. Those of us with an IQ that is 3 digits…can't stomach that garbage at all.

    amazing that in 2019, democracy as being exported via the US, as the supposed leader of the free world is so flawed. The greatest advocate for impropriety, despotism, and fiat governance at this moment is the US. Furthermore, the widespread use of propaganda, conspiracy theories, ideological dogmatism, and partisanship are the main forces at work in the US. The biggest economic and military superpower in the world. This opens the door for false equivalencies about both types of government (authoritarianism vs democratic systems where power is with the people)… America must overcome this lapse of governance and recover the rule of law and propriety or be irreparably scarred.

    Funny how the republicans blame the Dems for "A Hoax" and claim they have nothing to hide yet the refuse to show up and testify as the only defence they have is doing it trump style – Lying. I bet most republicans and red voters don't understand Clinton was impeached for lying under oath not over the affairs. Why is trump not testifying? why no tax returns? why is he obstructing justice? I believe we all know the answers.

    Funny how they missed the first part of that quote:
    Zelensky: Look, I never talked to the president from the position of a quid pro quo. That’s not my thing. … I don’t want us to look like beggars. But you have to understand. We’re at war. If you’re our strategic partner, then you can’t go blocking anything for us. I think that’s just about fairness. It’s not about a quid pro quo. It just goes without saying.

    I think Democrats want to do this now, because it is not about the elections, it is about the rule of law. Public opinion is hard to predict, and there's no way of telling how even a sound and reasonable indictment will play out with Trump supporters and the undecided. But a crime is a crime and if Trump can be convicted, that's just that.

I actually wish NEWS media would stop reporting on him so much. Didn't you learn anything from doing this before the election? The more you keep his name out in the public the better for him. Just STOP it already. Say one – three SENTENCES & move on.

    If we don't do something. We're going to end up losing this country to Russia, and whoever else he's sold us out to.. this is deranged the Republicans want the United States to trust Trump, he's a liar, he's has took so much money out of this country moving it here and there and want to do other things with it other than what the money is really for. Talks about our justice system with Putin putting us down. Talking about are FBI to the adversaries and calling names in front of the whole nation. But the Republicans want you to trust Donald Trump, they get mad when you don't trust Donald Trump, not even first graders trust Donald Trump. Number one you don't even teach your children to trust a liar. Do Republicans think a liar is okay he's not okay when he's the president of the United States. He Cheats they think a cheater is okay. And then get mad when the nation don't accept all these that Donald Trump has done. getting mad if he's doing these things he's just doing horrible Behavior and he's wrong. And you want to put this whole nation on the line. the whole United States on the line behind Donald Trump this is ludicrous."

    Top Republicans have made it perfectly clear, there is no level of crime severe enough that they will stand against this president. And his voting makes could care less. They elected a man who has been accused of sexual assault by 26 women. Do you honestly think any of them are what crimes he commits? It's part of why they love him.
    And God help us call if Americans lose control of the house again. Numerous Republicans have said that they would favor suspending the presidential elections and keeping this man permanently, even to the extent of having his children follow behind him.
    If This Were fiction no one would believe it.

    9:50 I disagree with the former representative that Democrats could overstep their bounds during the impeachment proceedings. I think the president and his Administration definitely overstepped their bounds and now the Dems are bringing evidence forward and holding Republicans accountable. The public not understanding is a weak argument as the newscasters and politicians explain the steps, process, where things are at and where things are going. If the public doesn't understand it is their responsibility to become more informed or "stay tuned". There is a reason why the Democrats are informed of laws, protocol, and the objective of their job -it's unfortunate Republicans have lost sight of these matters!
    What Democrats cannot do is allow the country to slip further into disarray.

    The world leaders laugh at our president and thair nations laugh at us. After Bush/Chaney, they started calling us "Dumb Americans" so, we proved them right by electing Trump. 2020 is our last chance.
    Americans are oblivious to their environment. They are spoiled by their simple freedom and peculiar economic illusions.
    It will take years to fix the damages done to our country by this Criminal Gang of Mobsters. 4 more years will completely demolish America as we know it.
