Comments
  1. Impeach him, but also let McConnell and Graham know that if they stand up for this man they will be targeted with the most negative campaigns in history, and utterly crushed.

  2. By the time US realizaes that have a really corrupt … stupid … and worst government ever … THE WORLD WILL ADVANCE AGAINST AND WITHOUT IT ….

  3. Sorry guys, Bernie is the Democratic front runner…no matter how badly you money grabbers want Biden.

  4. I'm afraid that he wants to be impeached and then he'll use that as his Beer Hall Putsch so that he can declare martial law he's already said that he has the support in the military and police
    This is not a good sign

  5. The "Public" the Democrats want "on their side" are just waiting for somebody to show some spine. All Trump is proving is that nice guys finish last.

  6. Yes block all funds to the DOJ until they comply with House requests for information, and apparently it is

    quite within the power of the House to do that. Do that and stop the mafia stalling tactics.

    The trump thinks at present that he is above all laws and the constitution and his current obstructions of justice

    are illegal and those of a person who has plenty to hide. If then found guilty both he and his family and the likes

    of Barr need to be locked up.

  7. oh my God are you people stupid exclamation exclamation seriously do you not know that all of his accounts have been investigated 15 times Every Which Way but Loose by the IRS by accountants accounting this is a false fake politically-motivated weaponizing of the judicial system and they're all going to go down that's the bait and you guys are so stupid that you fish into it every single time you guys fist into Muller Mullers your man Muller and his whole team we're about as biased as you can get can't find anything so what do they do they created stuff what did they create they created the dossier you know where the dossier came from that paid millions of dollars for which is by the way is Criminal act and it was a stolen it was plagiarized from an article back in 2007 by the New York Times do your homework you morons

  8. Spanky and his family is suing Deutsche Bank because they don't want people to know how many cans of coke they drank how much Starbucks coffee they had. Spanky said that's a red line oh by the way Ivanka go get me a Coke in a couple of top secret files.

  9. He should go to war- grab’em by the p#$$y was a fail, Avenati and Stormy was a fail, Mueller time proved he was not a traitor or a foreign agent and their was no conspiracy. So now onto the next witch hunt – go through all of his business dealings and pray they find something

  10. I say he breaks and looses his mind live on camera.
    Not just the many cracks we see already – but a full breakdown…

  11. Look, If he want's to sue for the non release from the banks as a private citizen, why can't we indict him as a private citizen? Can't have it both ways Rump!

  12. For a Honest & Innocent individual …He sure does alot of questionable & nefarious stuff ! Vote him Trump OUT ! Romney in 2020

  13. the main argument against impeachment is that the other house will block that,

    so in fact tactically it may be better to not impeach for the moment, because that hedges their bets TWO ways,
    as more and more testimonies and subpoenas accumulate,

    FIRSTLY this may start getting more and more Trump voters to jump ship, thereby Trump getting voted out and then they can pursue Trump in the courts as a warning to future Trump copycat presidents. The voters are not as mindless as people seem to think.

    SECONDLY this may get more and more republicans in the other house on side against Trump, Cohen was the first person to jump ship, and McGahn seems to have jumped ship. I think some republicans have jumped ship already. There are signs Murdoch may have jumped ship also, with judge Napolitano talking of criminality.

    furthermore, as more and more Trump voters jump ship, this may force the voters' representatives in the other house to also jump ship, else be voted out, the 2 ships being pro Trump and anti Trump, where anti Trump will be SOME republicans and ALL democrats. ie the FIRST reason above has a domino effect on the SECOND reason above.

    so its like a fruit on a tree, the longer you leave it in the sun, the easier it becomes to detach, eventually when fully ripened, it will fall of its own accord. Trump will ripen in the sunlight of scrutiny until eventually he will drop from the political tree without external agency.

    thus if necessary not impeach at all, that way they dont get the humiliation of the impeachment being blocked by the other house,
    and instead humiliate Trump and the republicans, but if it becomes certain the other house wont obstruct the impeachment to then go all out for impeachment, no holds barred.

    as regards democratic presidential hopefuls, eg Warren, its fine if they call for impeachment because as a matter of logic, that threat is only meaningful if they become president, and then logically Trump will be out of office and impeachment no longer meaningful but they can pursue him legally to teach him to follow norms via jail. so its kind of an empty threat for a presidential candidate to call for Trump's impeachment. Its an ironical threat. America is rich in irony.

    I say "other house" because I dont understand the terminology of congress and senate. If I have understood correctly, the one house is controlled by the democrats, and the other house by the republicans. "congress" and "senate" are quite arbitrary words, it is unhelpful terminology. I prefer "lower house" and "upper house". If you showed some extraterrestrials the 2 houses, they wouldnt know which was the senate and which was congress. I noticed some news broadcasts give ET time! ET phone home.

    Because an impeachment will also be lots of testimonies and subpoenas, but to NOT impeach means the testimonies and subpoenas can be much more wide ranging. If they impeach, they presumably have to accuse the president of something and then can only get relevant subpoenas and testimonies. Whereas to not impeach means they can explore at will and rattle more cages.

    so to NOT impeach means they can cause much more hassle to everyone affiliated with Trump than if they do impeach.

    Trump is a big bluffer, they may well be only a few steps from some major uncovery. This seems to be the first point where Trump has begun legal action to halt things, whereas with other things he just talked of legal action. So this must be the cupboard where he keeps his biggest skeleton.

    He cannot stop them getting those bank records, so if they can expedite the court case, it will be an open and shut case, and Trump will be in big big trouble according to his own testimony where he used the swearword.

    They wont have to impeach because I think Trump will resign, but he is playing brinkmanship right to the last moment. A bit like a soccer team who are 0-5 down, desperately trying to score a goal in the last 10 seconds of the match.

  14. "Trump felt under attack"

    Oh, gee. I wonder why? It couldnt have anything to do with the 2 years talk of "collusion", how the "walls are closing in" and "impeachment" could it?

    These people are clowns and only dummies could still beleive these guys.

  15. Great program! But any lawyer knows that Congress will have to prove probable cause (basis) before they can legally obtain information. A fishing expedition isn't legal. We need to charge him with a crime! Otherwise, there is no way forward because the Constitution expressly protects a person's privacy under the 4th Amendment: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

  16. Where to put Trump after he is tried fro his crimes. Perhaps G. Bay with the other terrorists and enemies of America.

  17. TREASON and SEDITION at the HIGHEST LEVELS of POWER!!

    A REPUBLICAN RUSSIAN MOLE in the PRESIDENCY of the United STATES of AMERICA and the SENIOR REPUBLICAN SENATORS are OKAY with that RAT McConnell and Graham and BARR's OH MY!!

    REMEMBER THAT ROPE IS BOTH CHEAP AND REUSABLE

    4 All those HENCHPEOPLE
    4 All those Unindicted Co Conspirators

    SECRET 90 minute MEETINGS with VLAD the RAT BOY PUTIN!
    Putin the FSB HANDLER
    DUMP the TRAITOR JUST LIKE BENEDICT ARNOLD but SUBSTITUTE Russia for Britain

    Sold us ALL OUT, TRUMP IS A TRAITOR! & the REPUBLICANs R OKAY with that????

    COMPROMISED by a RUSSIAN Girls PEE PEE TAPE cause if Dumps wife gets THAT TAPE and Trumps getting a Divorce and since its Trumps infidelity that causes the issue of Divorce she gets HALF AT LEAST!!

    Get the Tape; Set that RUSSIAN Girls PEE PEE FREE!!

    You know DONALD Trump SR shares a Hobby with Caligula of Roma in Bedding other mens wives! A real Moral Pillar you REPUBLICAN Moral MAWHORIE-ITY! Morals of GOATS!

  18. Donald Trump should've had his 5th bankruptcy but the Presidency saved it. The grifter will have all his buildings taken away (if he even owns them) soon.

  19. Trump seems to want Congress to impeach him. Maybe he doesn't think they would, but his rolling the dice.

  20. In the last season, the night king will call out the white riders; the white Christian evangelicals, the bike riders and idiots like Candace Owens, in MAGA rallies, to arm themselves and defend "our" country. This is a very dangerous criminal in the WH.

  21. A WARNING  TO TRUMP CABINET MEMBER AND SUPPORTERS.

    Michael Cohen recently issued a warning to Trump's protectors… "I
    protected Mr. Trump for 10 years … "I can only warn people. The more
    people that follow Mr. Trump as I did blindly are going to suffer the same
    consequences that I'm suffering." When someone like that, issues a warning
    like that… listen and believe him! He's trying to do y'all a favor. AG Barr
    should cut his losses and try to start cleaning up the mess he's making of our
    democracy and his future. Trump will gladly let you go down for him. Have some
    self respect and do what's right; do the things that don't require you lying
    and risking your freedom. Trump is not worried about you at all, he's playing
    you for a fool; don't be one! You can't cover both of y'all's butts…pick one;
    Trump has, and it's his own.

    (COPY PASTED)

  22. Shame on mueiior for not indicting Trump. He had all the evidence but no courage. Barr needs to be held accountable and serve jail time. Crooks!!! and rememberJared the son in law, who was giving Russia a direct line to the White House!!! And what about the other bunch of rogues from Trump’s campaign who are now in jail!!! Bunch of crooks running our beautiful country!!! Biggest cover up in US history!!!These people have sold out our country! Lock them up!!

  23. Nancy Pelosi ….isn't there a way to make tRump a non viable candidate due to not abiding by the law …no tax returns…too much obstruction …do not impeach

  24. Tell Trump, his family & FAILED Administration to keep wasting their time….in that, the banks MUST & WILL comply w/any & ALL Subpoenas. Tell Trump, his family & his FAILED Administration that the Judges who issued these & other compulsory Subpoenas will not fail to Order a "HAMMER DOWN" should Trump, his family & his FAILED Administration fail to comply w/said Judicial Orders.

    Further….explain to Trump, his family & his FAILED Administration that such resistance on their side is futile, & will not look good on their resume. End of story.

  25. Sure, win by burning your own house down, that makes sense. Kinda reminds me of the phrase "cut his nose to spite his face". As it is, there are few banks who will do business with pres dum dum & his family. I wonder how many will do business with his family at the end of his presidency after he sued the few ones which were stupid enough to touch his business with a 10 foot pole. 👍🏼😂

  26. He never thought he could win. He just ran to further the trump name knowing even if he lost he could turn it into a win financially. That's why he could be so extreme and make such wild promises. Now everything is catching up with because potus has responsibilities that he cannot abrogate.

  27. Yeah, yeah, yeah but what I really wanna know is…who is the honey @ 18:17 though?!? #waposexual

  28. If you would like to listen to a reading of the Mueller Report (redacted sections are filled with music) go to youtube and pull up VICE NEWS.
    Amazingly damning with all the dirty deeds done by Russia and lies by the trump swamp creatures.

  29. OMG, this is pure propaganda. Disgusting slander and lies against your own president. US government must cut ALL funding to these enemies or the USA in the msm.

  30. Mnuchin should tell the Dems that before even considering handing over Trump's tax returns – each Congressperson making that Demand must hand over his Own tax returns for the same time period.  THEN that same Congressperson must hand over his/her medical records pertaining to Mental Health – specifically if he/she has been prescribed drugs to help with mental health problems. There are too many such drugs to list, so they should Google "list of mental health prescription drugs" .  Mental health conditions include: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) … Anxiety/Panic Disorder. … Bipolar Disorder. … Depression. …Schizophrenia. Donald Trump has already "passed his health exam." Now, due to the bizarre behavior of some Dems in Congress, the Public must insist that their mental health be scrutinized. We deserve mentally balanced people in Congress (not people "working on Their issues").

  31. If the President is impeached on a bucket load of crimes, Pence will consequently become the President and he will duly pardon him. Where does that gets us?

  32. They sound like corrupt cops trying to search a random guy. "If you've got nothing to hide, you shouldn't object to my searching your car."

  33. Again? … Fake News here as well?? Do You All Know How Fake You Sound???
    Don't forget 2020 is just around the corner…

  34. The democrats are trying everything possible to get Trump out of office.or not to be re elected.thats all this is about

  35. Trump should never have run for President of the United States if he didn't want this kind of scrutiny.
    He is not up to the game by a long shot. Too late and too bad. Instead, he is being hoisted with his own petard.

  36. who said there is no corruption in the developed world? If you have nothing to hide! you are the president of the free world who obviously understood the scrutiny you go under as president, you should willingly handover your tax returns. Everybody does! and to think that the likes of Lyndsey Graham and co can support trump on this?? there goes the reputation of american politics.

  37. Donald trump is bluffing – he wants to run out the clock on "criminal charges" Civil charges are only money so he doesn't care because he will put off payments forever….Convictions on tax evasion twice but they were only civil.. not criminal – HE'S facing criminal charges –
    he can't duck

  38. Only TRAITERS ! support Trump and his evil henchmen. Save our country throw them in prison ! 🖒🇺🇸

  39. Please dont vote if you watch this for news. We are finally getting our country back on track after 20+ years of corruption in Washington.

  40. can't wait for the coup attackers go to jail it's all coming out and even the media are implicated i think
    Barr mentioned it so the plot thickens lol is the death penalty sill in force for treason if so more than a few deserve it

  41. "Eric Trump Russian Loans" $100 Million, it's NOT their banks nor their Government, Google it.

  42. Let's see all of your FINANCES Fake Lying news MSNBC come on let all the American citizens see them what are you afraid of hah it's only your PRIVATE FINANCES that's none of ANYBODY'S BUSINESS just like Trump's FINANCES are none of ANYBODY'S BUSINESS,It's called PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT but it's okay your all going to be held ACCOUNTABLE.GITMO SOON

  43. T irs is taking $270.83 from my retirement annuity a month and this lying draft dodging crooked dictator

  44. Is counter Intelligence, investigating some sort of intelligence.Im not sure wat U.S Law is, but common law as in U.K means not stupid…

  45. He is playing chicken just as karine is saying. But if I was me, I would pluck leghorn foghorn feathers, he'll need a new suit.

  46. msnbc making fake news, shame on you, cheap none issues, you just like the sound of your own voice.your a lot of liars.

  47. I'm pretty sure there's more people in Washington DC than Trump, who are alarmed at the prospect of being investigated like Trump is being investigated! And not just the Republican's! Still, the Republican's are foaming at the mouth to stop any investigations, and the Democrat's aren't all that interested in doing the right thing, by riding the country of this criminal president! Why? Do they also have skeletons in thier closets?

  48. Trump's communist corruption goes deeper and deeper and after Mueller report provided clear proof of 10 obstruction of justice charges and tampering with investigations, how many people are connected with this dictator. McConnell and barr are corrupt also. With the GOP being the only party in American history to be caught, tried, and convicted of voter fraud previously, one has to wonder how is trump going to destroy America and its people? Vote to save America from communism, but do more than vote.

  49. The love of money is the root of all evil. With Moscow Mitch the love of power is the root of evil. Moscow Mitch it time to go.

  50. I can get charged for obstruction for not showing my I.d but the president can tell people not to cooperate with congress?

  51. How was he able 2 meet with Putin without security or an American interpreter? How to let that happen? Irresponsible out of control? Did we really let him control protocol?
