  1. It is The Presidents Job To Investigate Corruption… Hunter Biden Received $83,000 a month from Burisma, for Doing Nothing… And Joe Biden Told Ukraine, To Fire The Prosecutor of Burisma, or He would Not Give Them a Billion Dollars in Aid… Joe Biden is On Tape Saying That…So Ukraine Fired The Prosecutor… The Democrats Are Trying To Call "Right" "Wrong", and "Good" "Bad"…

  2. Truly amazing, the lengths to which the dems will go, because of pure hatred, to remove a President that is working for America — and with no proof of wrongdoing. Stop listening to the liberal media, people, they are rotting your brains and leading you astray. Socialism will ruin this country if allowed to take hold. God bless America.

  3. WE ARE WITNESSING A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS! ~ THE GOP ARE GAS LIGHTING THE U.S ON BEHALF OF THE RUSSIA FEDERATION/VLADMIR PUTIN!, IT'S DEFINITELY NOT FOR THE TRUTH AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE! ~ It's not just courage, but in this case the GOP lack integrity and refuse to do their duty to honor the constitution. ~ THE GOP ARE BLATANTLY HELPING DONALD TRUMP WITH HIS COVER UP!

  4. Its all about FOX News….READ Fox News comments in any of the broadcasts. Read what Fox news viewers have to say. Violent, angry and uneducated

  5. Unfortunately the Republican Senators are firm believers in trial by telephone like Chairman Schiff told us they do in Russia and they will destroy the Constitution in the process.

  6. Schiff is now the geek rock star. What a patriot!
    Unfortunately, the deplorable Trumpsters are still loud, could not be bothered to examine any facts, and are still spewing their hate. Some of them could not understand his speech because their vocabulary is so limited.

  7. Even though it's more enlightening to watch hyenas eat screaming warthogs alive i still watch 30 seconds of msnbc videos to hear and see how repulsive they are

  8. If any of these senator's refuse to act for the nation so they're reelected then they did not deserve your votes to begin with. The Law has been broken by trump again and again call him to account.

  9. Trump just asked what Biden son is doing in Ukraine. What this people wont hilary to be on pover. Under her terror will be in full force. Isis was Democrats and hilary army to put Asad down. Trump is not perfect but he is not interested in using terrorism for his purposes. Everyone will agree with this

  10. Schiff — a politician par excellence. Is there anything like that in the Republican Party? I think not. Lawrence your right again, The pressure on the Republicans is incredible. Count on Trump to double down dirty if the Republicans acquit Trump. If the Republicans do not convict to remove, the GOP lost again. Personally I laugh about it while imagining the karma of the fix in the Electoral College. This pedigree billionaire taught me a very important social lesson. Listening to the phone calls on c-span convinced me there is easy "Pickens" in the Red states to get Trump reelected by the Electoral College.

  11. THAT DUMB BIDEN/UKRAINE CONSPIRACY WAS DEBUNKED IN ONE MINUTE! Biden's deal was done as a general consensus of all of our allies AND congress for the betterment of democracy around the world. clown trump tried to do it for personal gain.

  12. Dems tactic is similar to Goebbels (Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Propaganda):
    "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it"

    Adam, where is the impeachable evidence?

  13. The trumpette is a dangerous occupier of the WH and needs to step down. However, him being a narcissist he won't do what is right and so these Republican Senators need to do what is right and remove him. This is bigger than a party or politics. This is for the country and our national security. If the Republicans don't do right then they too are a danger to the country. Whatever happened to standing up for your country. What does the trumpette have on them to make them so afraid to stand for truth and against a corrupt person who has taken over the WH.

  14. What on earth hold Trump or Moscow Mitch over these repub senators that they do not dare to adhere to their oath of office and their solemn oath to be impartial jurors in this trial? If they do not remove this dangerous and treacherous nitwit out of office they are not worthy of their senate sear and betray their people.

  15. Is all this about a call to Ukraine? Adam is crazy and wants to brainwash us. I am happy to have left the democratic party, really, whatever you want to call it, it has such a great hatred of the best president in the history of the United States, I think it is time to exterminate the democratic party by traitors, communists and liars

  16. When has  NBC or CNN been correct these last few years from Russia to Covington kids to the Justice Brett K they are always wrong it would seem.

  18. Everyone knows, even the demorats, that this impeachment is all about seizing power and getting Trump out of the way. It's indisputable.

  19. Schumer Schiff Sham Show… yep.. say that 3 times fast… hahahahahahaha and the crocadle tears from shifty shiff boo hooo boooo .
    Roll on the Aquital end of next week then 3rd November 2020 landslide election of both the Senate and Congress by the Republican . This will certainly bring real tears to my eyes. All you mongrells will be proven as the liers you are. Yeehaaaahhhhhh

  20. Senators have longer terms in office (6 years) so that they can take the long view for the good of the country in cases like this with less risk to reelection. That is also what they are paid to do. It is time for them to do the job right instead of for themselves.

  21. Adam Schiff will be a future POTUS if he chooses to run; Otherwise, I see him as our next Democratic appointed SUPREME COURT JUSTCE.
    I

  22. While Traitor Trumps Trial is going on, republicans have introduced a resolution to REMOVE DISABLED BENEFITS FROM SOCIAL SECURITY INCLUDING LONG TERM TEMPORARY DISABILITY .

    What that means is your little sister, who has autism gets thrown out on the street to STARVE when you die, AND if YOU HAVE A TERRIBLE ACCIDENT AT SAY, 24 OR EVEN 33 YEARS OLD AND IT TAKES YOU 4 YEARS TO GET BACK ON YOUR FEET YOUR PARENTS OR YOUR WIFE GET TO BOTH PAY TAXES AND PAY YOUR MEDICAL BILLS AND YOUR ROOM AND BOARD

    What it also means is they want to pocket your tax dollars by stealing all of the Social Security and unemployment benefits you and your old granny have already paid, and make Democrats fight just to keep what we already have, so that republi-cons can then prevent a better healthcare option, reduced or eliminated college tuition, unemployment insurance expansion and minimum wage increases.

    So they still get rich, and working stiffs still get screwed. They've never been in it for the country and they've never been in it for you .

  23. MSNBC and CNN youtube channels have been taken over by bots and trolls. This is a part of their strategy to throw the election for Trump again.

  24. Former Senator Claire McCaskill is absolutely right that the Republican Senators will never vote to convict Donald Trump because his voters are their voters. Trump voters are equally as dishonest & corrupt as he is and they love it. They cheer, scream, & yell at every lie Trump tells, his voters have that glassy look in their eyes each & every time Trump makes a racial remark and like Trump, they use the U.S. Constitution as toilet paper.

  25. It's hard to believe that the Media, no matter how far left, would support such an obvious liar with sociopathic displays as Schiff. Come on media, get some credibility so people can start believing you again.

  26. Email your senators over and over and over under judiciary for docs and witnesses. Your duty for fair trial. Email senators!

  27. I have a feeling that if the Senate buries this thing, the blue wave of the midterms will be minuscule compared to what's coming. It may actually be a good thing for progressives that Trump gets acquitted.

  28. A "trial" without calling known witnesses with first hand knowledge that haven't been heard from already, is nothing but a COVER UP. EVERY rational person understands this…

  29. GOP-GRIFTER OLIGARCH PARTY NEEDS TO BE EXTERMINATED. VOTE BLUE IN EVERY BOX. VOTE BLUE. SAVE DEMOCRACY. VOTE BLUE. VOTE BLUE.

  30. He didn’t need to cheat,he had and still has no opponent…Hair sniffing Biden…are you kidding!Trump2020🇺🇸DEMS AND THE MEDIA ARE FULL OF SCHIFF!

  31. Nothing's impossible. If the people rise up is numbers that are impossible to ignore even the holdout republicans will vote to remove.

  32. Adam Schiff's closing statements were very powerful!!! Hope and pray it got through! Adam reminded of Jimmy Stewart for a moment, I think it was Mr. Smith goes to Washington.

  33. They should not be basing their decision on their self interest. How about this you make the right decision and people will respect and appreciate you for having integrity.

  34. With Republican politicians being the majority in senate we all know how this is going to end, unless 4 republicans get a conscious.

  35. Schiff did a superb job!!…Unfortunately, the lies that will start tomorrow will be more appealing to the ears of the GOP than the Facts/Truth!!…..Sad day for all Americans, that 53 humans will allow the fate of an America I knew be taken away to please one person!….

  36. I predict President Trump will be removed from office…. on the last day of his second term…. live with it, deal with it, get a therapy dog..

  37. Trump has blocked and prevented the Constitutional rights of Congress and is now threatening to do the same thing to the Senate by declaring Executive Privilege over things that are NOT governed by Executive Privilege. AND he is now threatening Senators who vote against him. It is obvious that they are afraid of his bullying techniques. Can there be a secret Senate vote in this instance, so that people don't feel so frightened to vote their conscience and uphold the Constitution in contradiction to the views of their constituents? And when is someone in the Senate going to stand up and say to Trump, "How dare you threaten and obstruct both Congress and Senate? How dare you!" Don't they have any guts? If they don't protect the purview and purposes of Congress and Senate, our country is lost. This is why Trump is so dangerous! Throw the bum out!

  38. The fact that the entire nation believes the acquittal is in the bag before this process has completed shows with certainty we have a fake democracy and a phony Constitution.
    America can no longer claim we are a country that is governed by the rule of law and that "no one is above the law"
    Sad time for America.
    Let's stop with all the patriotic BS.
    This country is corrupt

  39. I don't know what she is talking about but, D.C. is already prepping Pence for Presidency! WH help says the Trump family is already starting to slowly pack things up. Will Trump be removed, resign or seek asylum from New York?? We shall see. But, tere is an advertisement for Pence already.. An "If he becomes President.." Ad.
    90% of Senators are seeing the evidence in total for the first time. It may seem boring to people who have ignored the evidence all along but it is quite compelling evidence to anyone learning of it for the first time! Senators WILL deliberate and work over ALL of the evidence. Even things not made public. Like Fiona Hill documents.

  40. Lawrence and Rachel ,,, myself, along with millions of other people have some questions because we are so-o-o-o- tired of the run around. What is going on? If #45 is not above the law, why hasn't some law enforcement officer gone to the WH and arrested and incarcerated #45 for Conspiracy to Commit Murder ? You have him on tape ordering the hit. The voice on the tape has been verified by the FBI that it is indeed 45 but yet he sits in the lap of luxury at our expense when 70% of the citizens don't want him there. On the conservative side of the dozens of crimes he has committed , there has to be a law somewhere that circumvents what the law has been doing.Is there something in the RICO prosecution charter that can get him out of MY WHITEHOUSE. ?? If he can order a hit on a law abiding citizen like Yovanovich, why can't we order a HIT on him and get away with it.? Can't we drug his secret service that protects him and when they lose consciousness the Hitman can go in and do the deed? Isn't that what he and Barr did before Epstein was murdered?? I think so. There has to be a PATRIOT somewhere!! Please give us some direction here — we are lost. Maybe you can talk to your associates that are reporters. There has to be a way. Either "LOCK HIM UP" or find a Patriot to do it. P L E E E E Z E —- We can't take this any more. !! Here's the running total:
    10 Incidents of obstruction

    199 Criminal charges

    37 indictments

    7 Guilty pleas (from Trump's closest advisers)

    5 Sentenced to prison

    1 facing trial (another of Trump's closest)

    26 Russians charged

  41. Schiff is a liar and is corrupt with the rest of TheDeep State DEMS. Why do they sell their offices to foreign countries and you talk about TRUMP who you or foreigns gov.s can not buy. WE THE AMERICAN STAND WITH TRUMP

  42. If the senate will not permit Bolton to appear and testify why then can't he or others testify with an interview on any news program to address the American people directly?

  43. PANIC MODE FOR MSLSD SO-CALLED JOURNALISTS,..SEDITION AND TREASON WILL BE REWARDED BY MILITARY TRIBUNALS,..THE COURTS WONT HEAR THESE GUYS PLEAS FOR LENIENCE,…BUT MILITARY TRIBUNALS WILL,…NO SHARP SILVER TONGUED LAWYERS ARE ALLOWED THERE,…HANGINGS FOR TRAITORS, AND GITMO FOR THIS FILTH

  44. HILLARY,.BARRY, AND BIDEN SOLD OUR URANIUM TO PUTIN,..THEN ALLOWED PUTIN TO INVADE UKRAINE,..AND BIDENS REWARD WAS LUCRATIVE CONTRACTS FROM THE SOVIETS AND UKRAINE,…WHEN BARRS INVESTIGATION IS OVER,..THEY WONT BE TRIED IN REGULAR COURTS,…THEY WILL BE TRIED IN MILITARY TRIBUNALS,…YES,..TRAITORS GO IN FRONT OF MILITARY OFFICERS,…SERIOUS TREASON IS HANGABLE,..WHILE REPORTERS GET GITMO,…FOR LIFE

  45. We need a special news interview by all media together to hear the truth from the four testimonies so Americans can be the jurors. What else is left if the GOP refuses to allow the truth to be heard.

  46. Mr Schiff.I now Promote you to be the President of the United States with that Commanding Closing Arguments .Well Done Democrats.

  47. Do people still watch this corrupt media….
    Thank goodness for our President…
    He's the best we've ever had….

  48. The White House occupant is the second rising of Hitler! The Republicans in Congress are the type of enablers who allowed Hitler to rise and carried out his atrocities! Shame on the Republicans in and out of Congress!

  49. In 284….days….sane, normal conservative US citizens will re-elect a great US 1st American Productive liberty 1st…president…Christ….enough….crook/crank career politicians… These crazy liberals are/ from start have been going after Pres.Trump like a late term-human fetus….disgrace…!!!!!

  50. I'm amazed at how many politicians demand that Republicans listen to both sides but don't listen to both sides themselves. I don't want to remove this president over a phone call, you have to be totally nuts! I'm enjoying peace, prosperity, a reduction in our physical war maneuvering and the conversion to using our financial might to move some of the mountains that have to be moved.

    But I have and I'm going to listen to both sides, and so far from watching the entire inquiry and the way in which it was conducted, I'm having a hard time because I've haven't been able to listen to one word from the Trump lawyers yet and it doesn't look that strong because I did watch the entire inquiry and saw all of the people who testified say they never spoke to President Trump himself. They assumed, heard, thought etc.

  51. A president holds constitutional powers. Unlike a Prime minister. Who holds executive power but is subordinate to constitution.
    The President holds both powers and can veto supreme court decisions affecting foreign policy.

    A Prime minister is just that. A "prime" minister. They may be replaced outside of election by any elected member of the ruling party without any sort of official inquiry such as impeachment. A mere vote among elected members is all that is needed.

    A president is a strict hierarchy by cabinet. Each secretary is president number 2 3 and 4. If number one goes. Number two gets the job.

    The constitutional veto powers mean an official inquiry must be held. Because you cannot vote out the constitution. You can only vote it in. That means the elected office of president cannot be removed or impeached outside of election without serious concern internationally. Because of the foriegn policy veto power that office holds.

    This is especially concerning for those who must fight and die for such decisions.
    Back off. Leave it to the ballot.

  52. 2:47 And this would be a bad thing? LOL Would be an amazing chance to clean up your cesspool of a republican-majority senate.

  53. Could you leftists explain to me what was Trumps crime? It seems to me that Democrats are impeaching Trump for Biden's corruption because they don't want Trump to be reelected.

  54. Clare McCaskill doesn't get it. She's been speaking out of both sides of her mouth for so long she lost her moral compass.

  55. I'm a voting Democrat and I don't think he should be impeached. I'm black and dont think he's a racist. I just think he doesn't think much about the black experience if any thing. Democrats need to focus on finding a singular candidate and winning the presidency in a legitimate fashion. Also if Trump is impeached. Pence takes over and it riles up republicans to keep a republican in office and we all know republicans are more cohesive and get out to vote when pressed

  56. Claire, you are the EPITOME of cluelessness of Republican ideology. The whole point of schiff’s outline of these facts danger to the country is ABOVE ANY SENATOR’s re election prospects!! The NATION is first! When it comes to the right thing and removing a danger! The danger to elections that are not tainted IS THE POINT! if elections are meddled with , might effect your free and fair chance TO BE ELECTED!!

  57. Sorry gang . This is America . If you don’t like someone vote against them , Adam schiff has spent three and half years trying to kick out a duly elected president.
    What happened to accept the results of the elections ??? . You are such sheep !!!!

  58. Why don't Republicans understand that an Impeached President is replaced by a more manageable Republican that can ride off the Obama economy.
