Nancy Pelosi Breaks Things Down For Everyone | Morning Joe | MSNBC

  1. The Founders understanding of bribery was derived from English law, under which bribery was understood as an officeholder’s abuse of the power of an office to obtain a private benefit rather than for the public interest. This definition not only encompasses Trump’s conduct—it practically defines it.

    The Ukraine scandal began in the spring of 2019, with a series of contacts between Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy, and Ukrainian officials. In mid-July, Trump decided to withhold nearly $400 million in aid to Ukraine that had already been appropriated by Congress. The White House offered no explanation, except to blame “interagency delay.” A week later, Trump spoke by phone to the recently elected Ukrainian president, Zelensky. The memorandum released by the White House describing that call—which is consistent with the accounts of the whistleblower complaint that first brought this scandal to light—reads like a classic shakedown.

    According to the memo, after exchanges of flattery, Trump states that “we do a lot for Ukraine” and that “we spend a lot of effort and a lot of time,” before he complains that the relationship is not always “reciprocal.” Zelensky then raises the question of military aid to Ukraine, to which Trump immediately responds, “I would like you to do us a favor though,” and proceeds to ask Zelensky to investigate two unfounded conspiracy theories: one involving the server containing emails stolen from the DNC during the 2016 election, and the other involving the thoroughly debunked claim about then-VP Biden, his potential reelection opponent.

    Trump asks Zelensky to work with Giuliani and AG Barr to investigate his potential opponent and so aid his own reelection campaign. There can be no misunderstanding that Traitor Trump was abusing his official power in the conduct of foreign policy to get a foreign government to investigate his political rival.

    Article II, Section 4, says the president “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

  2. Drain the swamp. When is Hunter Biden going to testify? Why do poor kids from poor families guard oil wells in the middle east for rich Americans?

  3. Thank goodness most republicans have a brain and have their eyes wide open ,it’s the closed minded that need some help here.

  4. A man everyone agrees has no honor, has committed felonies to win the first election, criminally obstructed justice in the Mueller probe, has again committed felony high crimes. What a daytime show, on all the networks! Impeachment is a dishonorable path for this pretender to the high office, and his descent will be ugly, at best. In the end, I'll bet that enough senators will vote to remove him.

  5. Enough people have been removed from office for influence peddling.
    I don't see the line of reasoning used that by using the backdoor route of "diplomacy" of having unvetteed envoy not bound by Department of State rules doing his bidding in Ukraine or other places in Europe. It just shouldn't be legal to send Juliani in. Not just "unusual".
    If Juliani was doing official government work, he has to be vetted and approved and officially hired by State Dept.

    If not employed by State Dept, this is private a business dealing of The President for which he is required to be disinfected of during term of office.
    Edit: disinvested, not disinfected.
    Autocorrupt shucks.

  6. Aside from the main topic in this video: I wonder what ties does Fox News has with Russia. They call themselves the conservative media but they go to the extreme left as far can be and they are pro-Republican all the way and the main purpose of their existence is to attack what is commonly known as the liberal media yet When it comes to presenting issues of political nature that reports negative or corrupt actions by a Republican they are quick to defend and deny any wrong doing at whatever cost and at whatever means. Fox does not really care about Republicans because they hold the truth and keep them ignorant thus making them weak in their ability to help protect the country.
    Deny, lies, half truths, deterr and smoke screens seem to be their main line of operations.

    Will someone, please do an intensive long-term investigation into Fox News to uncover their ties to Russia and irradicate them from journalism?

  7. Impeachment times, call for impeachment measures! Thank you Nancy, for calling it what it actually is, “Bribery”!!! Because if DJT didn’t have anything to worry about, he would not be obstructing people from testifying!!! ADD: Three (3) more counts of obstruction.. to his borage of Crazy! 😜

  8. trump just couldn’t help himself, so he gave Nancy exactly what she knew he would, reasons for his impeachment, she is a genius! 😊💙

  9. The whole point of Trump trying to get Ukraine to take the blame for 2016 election interference is to let Russia off the hook. What he did to the kurds helped Russia, there's Russian troops now in that area, Turkey has brought missiles from Russia.. its all about Russia, he helping Russia out at every fking turn.

  10. I think Democrats need to start calling out Republicans for taking bribes by having Trump give campaign rallies for them in exchange for impeachment defense.

  11. Dream on , you people are trying to convince “ yourselves “ that the hearsay from the “so called” star witnesses are facts.
    The thing is democratic leaders are desperate for anything to try , just keep on convincing yourselves.

  12. MSNBC is corrupt, swamp fake news. Here's some real news.

    A career State Department official told impeachment investigators this week that he raised concerns with a senior White House official in 2015 about the son of then-Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. holding a position on the board of a Ukrainian gas company.

    But the warning from George P. Kent, then a State Department officer stationed in Kiev, was not acted on, according to two people familiar with Mr. Kent’s testimony. Mr. Kent, now of the State Department’s Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs, said he told the official that Hunter Biden’s position could look like a conflict of interest, given his father’s role, and would complicate American efforts to encourage Ukraine to clean up corruption.

    The White House official told Mr. Kent that the elder Mr. Biden did not have the “bandwidth” to address the concerns while his older son, Beau, was undergoing cancer treatment, according to the people, who were not authorized to discuss the private deposition.

  13. incredible to see this Jim 'Jacketless' Jordan & these other spineless Republicans, whom history will deal with them in due time. Thank you Mika, Joe & staff

  14. Trump’s way of winning is to falsely smear opponents. Cheating his way through everything. How his supporters aren’t disgusted by his dirty lies and actions is beyond comprehension. He belongs in prison.

  15. Looking at Hong Kong terrorist protesters who do not want their country anymore
    and looking back at US with a president and reps who do not care about their democratic country
    what is happening ? ? ?

  16. Looking at Hong Kong terrorist protesters who do not want their country anymore
    and looking back at US with a president and reps who do not care about their democratic country
    what is happening ? ? ?

    SLO-ALABAMA? be well mornin' joey & crew. THANKS

  18. Hmmm, I think Pelosi is the little train that could. She's just cruising along, slowly building speed, slowly laying it all out until we all 'I think I can' these asshats to prison.

  19. So Jay Sekulow a Christian told Michael Cohen to lie what is surprise Christians lie. What else did Christians lie about?

  20. Well that was clear as mud. Nancy "Alzheimers" Pelosi, just said they have PROOF OF BRIBERY by the President!!!!! THEN goes on to say she's not sure they're going to vote for impeachment!!!! LMAO

  21. You people can't be serious. This is a total joke. Wow. I can't believe how many people just watch Fake News like MSNBC/CNN and feel informed. Unreal lmao

  22. It gets deeper and darker by the day!! There is no exoneration at all – he immediately, after the Mueller report is released, enters into yet another corrupt act which the GOP immediately excuse according to their infantile conspiracy theories!!

  23. Wouldn't extortion be more accurate than bribery? In a bribery, party A pays party B for a favour but that payment is an extra; if not accepted party A loses out and party B goes on with life as if nothing happened, because it isn't depending on that bribe. In this case however Ukraine was very much depending and counting on the foreign military aid and political support that it was promised and which was suddenly held hostage. Bribery is too soft a term for what happened here.

  24. "Oh, take the keys and lock Trump up, lock Trump up, lock Trump up! Oh, take the keys and lock Trump up! He's…a…traitor!"

  25. Trump is the most brilliant guy when it comes to Psychology. He ought to get an Honorary Degree from Yale and Harvard. He understands what works on TV – selling, branding, pitching, and understands what works in politics. It's been a great
    day as Impeachment backfires on Biden as his numbers crater. Trump turned it into Biden's Ukraine problem instead of the Democrat's Trump Impeachment. He is a masterful Chess-player, and a Master of Words.

  26. How many of rump’s people have to be caught for racist activity, indicted and jailed before the republicans stop supporting this hate and corruption?

  27. Isn't it trumpian that he even bribes somebody – a country, with someone elses money – the American taxpayer. He didn't even use his own money.

  28. Anyone who's seen Monty Python's dead parrot sketch just replace the customer complaining it's dead with democrats, the shop keeper saying it's just asleep etc with Republicans, and the parrot with your democracy

  29. I foresee all the Democrats are just going to look like idiots like when Trump got elected . The Mueller investigation and after the Kavanaugh hearing

  30. People have been stealing signals and calls in every sport since the beginning of time. Ask Mike Holmgren… hes old enough.

  31. Speaking of bribery, that's what Plump is doing to his KKK lackeys. Remember when Jordan, Graham, McConnell, and others HATED TRUMP? Now they are on their knees for this Mob Boss. MONEY, BLACKMAIL, AND THREAT'S

  32. Beware of accusations that could have been spread by a disgruntled ex-Astros pitcher.

  33. "It's easier for people to understand" I hear every time from journalists. So, Americans are just too dumb to grasp the slightest bit of Latin, let alone to vote conscientiously. The US really are doomed.

  34. Start right now severely restricting these dangerous modern guns. This should be the number one priority for this country. There will be no public safety in America until you have law and order.

  35. where is Greta Guthburg now???? Greta should be telling Pelosi to clean up her dirty, environmentally damaging precinct!

  36. Aww boo. They stole signs. Idgaf. That's not real cheating. Real cheating is paying refs or betting against your own team.

  37. Pelosi is the MOTHER OF ABOMINATIONS. And the aftermath of Trump is impeached serves all the snowflakes and liberals true justice. In your liberal world you deserve Hillary in the Oval office as you feed on varmints
    in a collapsed America.

  38. If it is proven that Trump committed bribery and obstructed justice and the Republicans don't vote to remove Trump along with the Dems, where does that leave the constitution if Republican Senators refuse to accept truths and facts and fulfil their oath of office. The Dems and other honest Senators might as well pack up and just stand outside the Whitehouse and protest. Could the Sergeant at Arms be sent to arrest Republicans for failing to uphold their oath of office diligently and honestly ??


  40. I mean really, has anyone ever counted the number of lives, both here and abroad, that D.T. has irreparably damaged and/or literally destroyed? I bet the sum of crushed souls making up D.T.'s evil wake, is profound!?!

  41. Added my name to the rnc mailing list to get propaganda from both sides. don jr texted me re buying his book. Rnc IS sharing info with the trumps.

  42. Pelosi's daughter once said that she could cut someone's head off politically and they wouldn't know what was going on until they saw the blood. I don't like Nancy at all, but she is a very shrewd operator. Schiff was a very successful federal prosecutor in his day. This impeachment process wouldn't be happening unless they saw a really good chance of success. Add to that, if there was a blind vote during the Senate trial, There are quite a few Republican senators that would finish the job. Enjoy the ride. Donald is a cooked goose no matter what the outcome is.

  43. Hahaha break down some relief for the homeless people in your district clown ( Trump it is the revolution we the people are Trump🇺🇸)

  44. Trump claimed he turned a ‘small’ $1 million loan from his father into an empire. The New York Times says it was more like $60.7 million in loans.
