  1. who r those people that don't want to impeach Trump an save the constitution of this USA? –if u find that person – they r a traitor an or a Russia spy

  2. How to play Limbo: Have the two people holding the limbo stick start the game by holding the stick about 4 feet from the ground. Everyone in line must then go under the stick by walking forward and bending backward under the stick. If someone touches the stick they are out. How low is the bar going to go before we call it? This president bumped the stick, threw it across the room and drew in an invisible one with his sharpie. Quit playing limbo, the wedding was over before it stated, divorce him!

  3. Any Republican representatives who balk at the idea of discussing Trump's blatant corruption should be asked publicly, when was the first time you decidedly chose to stay at a Trump hotel or resort? If they had shown no interest in him or his properties prior to him campaigning, but they're now seen actively stuffing money into his pockets to curry favor with him for political bargaining, they are complicit in his unethical and morally bankrupt presidency. He is profiting from his bid for the presidency, from hosting government functions in his hotel ballrooms, to promoting his golf club memberships to foreign dignitaries, to having heads of state staying at their Washington hotel, to using press conferences for Trump product advertising, to having his staff go on television to talk up his family's business ventures, to having the US military take needlessly expensive redirects to stay and refuel at international resorts and clubs. He was unabashedly promoting his personal business from public office, and has worked to rig the entire political process, and the new tax code, to better serve himself, and other corporate knuckleheads like him, to avoid paying what they owe to the American tax system. He is emblematic of everything that goes wrong when white collar crime goes unpunished. Time to tally up the tabs. His free ride is over.

  4. Nancy Pelosi is 79 years old. What the heck is she doing in politics still? Get these old f.rts out of politics already. Every one of em. They are just halting every progress as they are clinging to their old world views and carriers.

  5. Toughen up fellow whimpy democrats. No more mr and mrs nice liberal. Turn the other cheek……..wile you hit those confederate nazis with a left hook!! Take no more crap.we will get our country back from fascism. History proves confederates,I mean conservatives don't listen to reason.

  6. Remember that Clinton was impeached in the blink of an eye for a BJ….Trump has been robbing America for 3 years, is working with the Russians and a million other transgressions and only NOW do the Democrats think its time to have a look at impeachment.

  7. Hallelujah!! FINALLY!!!!! God, it seems like forever! But I'm going to button down my enthusiasm until I actually SEE the impeachment hearing in progress! 🙋🙋🙋

  8. Go Democrats!! Show the people u care n that u are fighting to protect them!!! U will be rewarded come 2020! Get those damned SWAMP MONSTERS OUT!!! 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌

  9. Most criminal, incompetent, divisive, corrupt, unpatriotic Presidential administration in U.S. history. No joke! The big joke is Republicans pretending nothing wrong.

  10. Merriam-Webster updating their dictionary to include new definition for 'Republican.'  "A hypocritical regressive racist obstructionist who doesn't need a reason when treason is in season."

  11. The wall Trump is building is in reality around him, trapping himself within the confines of public disdain, disgust, disapproval, and utter contempt, which he lays down brick by brick, turd after turd, in endless succession. Edgar Allen Poe would have heartily approved.

  12. NRA distributed tinder and kindling nationwide, its GOP pawn saturated them with gasoline, and President Nero turned up his flamethrower.

  13. Really anxious to know…how many more Traitor Trump terrorist attacks against Americans before we put him someplace safe so no one else gets hurt?

  14. President Trump: "We have racist Republican traitors INVADING America, SLAUGHTERING and KILLING Americans! If we had a proper AG and Senate, we wouldn't have to work so much harder impeaching the head of their KLAN, and it would be a lot safer and a lot better! These are rough, rough people in many cases, and if they're allowed to permeate our society, only larger and bigger, we will have EMBOLDENED these people, and they will DESTROY America!"

  15. Hateful coward in El Paso just following along with his Coward-in-Chief. How many more victims from these hateful cowards incited by Terrorist Trump's highly incendiary racist rhetoric?

  16. Question: Which are worse, Russian bots/apparatchiks attacking America to divide and weaken us, or their tools, the Republican cult dupes helping them?
    Answer: The American fools, of course. While hostile foreign powers are an ever-present reality, the treasonous behaviors of the GOP against its own nation's democracy, well-being, and national security, and even its members own welfare, is the far greater evil. If it persists, this mighty nation will certainly perish in ignominy.

  17. If trump is impeached and removed, they must do the same for his entire staff. That means pence has to go as well, that would put Pelosi in the wh until nov 2020. Just removing trump is not enough

  18. UK got their Trump in Boris Johnson, and conservatives on both sides of the Atlantic in self-destruct mode. Just lovely, if you're Putin.

  19. We've long, long past the point Republicans can feign ignorance that the occupant of the Oval Office they elected is a sociopathic menace to society.

  20. For three years, Republicans have propped up and protected a racist, corrupt, sociopathic narcissistic menace to society, gaslighting and covering up Traitor Trump crimes, ineptness, and incompetence. Republicans don't really care about our country; time and again, for decades now, they have put their politics and greed for power above the welfare of this nation. The destructiveness of GOP politics on American government began under Nixon, but starting with Reagan it became a Republican selling point. Conservatism won't die, but Republicanism has become a zero-sum game for losers. This incarnation of the GOP needs to die, or it will be the end of American greatness.

  21. I'll never meaningfully realize why evidenced, endless brazen criminal activity—a literal American Constitution crisis—ever needs to be investigated. Guilty, guilty, GUILTY. Impeach, remove, INCARCERATE traitorous, senile psychopath Donald Trump, yesteryear!

    Thanks, MSNBC. Keep it up.♥

  22. I heard one description of Trump that fits him completely "a lawless president". He has to be removed for several reasons: for the future safety of the children being held in prison camps, For the health and safety of the American people, for the fleecing of the American tax payers, for the corruption of our constitution, for the betrayal of our country and his interactions with Putin.

  23. Traitor Trump turning sacred, dignified White House into Infowars loony bin, pushing SIXTEEN different wacky conspiracies in under three years. Putin's puppet pie just earning his Russian salary, sowing confusion, dividing, weakening America!

  24. How are half the Democrates and none of the Republicans in favor of Impeaching this President? This is not making America great.

  25. Nadler's trying to do his job. NANCY, STOP OBSTRUCTING IMPEACHMENT. Get out of the way. You're turning into another Trump enabler yourself. And why are 100% of the Democrats NOT for impeachment?

  27. MSNBC, Hello America!!!
    My perspective is that….
    Metaphorically, our country and the American people within our nation are being strategically purse snatched, pick pocketed, and dilberately looted by billions upon billions, from an alleged collaboration of political team protecting efforts of unruly lawless unpresidential corruption hogwash beyond unimaginable proportions.
    It's extremely obvious, Congress….
    "are not ignoring" the other very important "kitchen table issues" for people within our nation.
    The majority duly elected House Democratic members must utilize their constitutional powers to protect our nation's security defense priorities and expediously begin impeachment investigations against this current alleged unpresidential corrupt lawless President.
    In my opinion,
    Moscow Mitch McConnell,
    is intentionally blocking most legislation "against" the best interest of the American people within our nation.
    The Speaker of the House,
    Nancy Pelosi…continuous poltical stonewalling…is what it is.
    Rightfully, I agree with…..
    Rep. Eric Swalwell and the expert panel concerning, "There must be accountability for unpresidential lawlessness."
    For me, the news polls are irrelevant concerning the public not being on board for impeachment of President Trump.
    It doesn't matter if the majority Senate Republicans refuse to impeach this President.
    What's most important… is the sworn constitutional oath for each duly elected indiviual political official to protect our nation against all enemies both foreign and domestic.
    The American people, taxpayers, and registered voters will be watching and waiting to vote their respective individual choices in 2020…for those who answered
    the call to hold our nation's government duly elected political officials accountable for their alleged criminally corrupt illegal actions.

  28. BECAUSE NANCY KNOWS THAT TRUMP IS DOING HIS JOB UNLIKE OBAMA CAN ANY ONE TELL ME WHAT OBAMA EVER DID FOR AMERICA BESIDES RUIN US N TRUMP HAS SAVED AMERICAN PEOPLE SCREW CHINA N ALL THERE LEADERS WE NEED TO START ASSASSINATEING THESE TERRORIST. CLEAN UP!!! TIME CIA WHERE U AT YALL SLACKING

  29. His term will be over before they finish the impeachment probe. Guess they're hoping the show will make the base forget how useless they've been.

  30. Republicans want to pretend their fascist Emperor fully clothed, when our racist, felonious Traitor-in-Chief stands naked as a jaybird!

  31. There is no Trump presidency, what we have is an illegitimate abomination; a cheesy, sleazy masquerade frauded upon America by Russia and Republicans!

  32. Trump is the Dexter Diabolical who never learned to channel his darkness for the benefit of society. An insecure, amoral narcissist raised by a cruel father, whose destructive sociopathic and racist tendencies have been enabled and emboldened by the power entrusted to him.

  33. Tyrant Trump is cracked. The only question is, will he become completely cracked by 2020, or put out to pasture before then? Who cares what Trump thinks or worries about? He doesn't think, and he should be worried!

  34. I wonder how much each golf trip the Golfer-In -Chief bills the taxpayers would pay for an overhaul of the water systems in NJ and Flint. 4? 6? Someone needs to do the math. That will tell you everything you need to know about where his priorities are. Even the base could understand that.

  35. Let's remember trump wanted Pelosi to be speaker of the house before she got voted back in so I think she's compromised she's on his team anybody that doesn't support impeachment process is with all the evidence is on his team and they need to be removed

  36. The world Desperately needs a Leader and a Country to lead them. However, I am not sure that America is the country Trump has destroyed all the USA's credibility.

  37. Nancy Pelosi has stalled the impeachment process from the beginning. The Democratic Party is as much to blame for the Trump mess as the Republicans.

  38. Sorry, I've lost track, is this the 4th or 5th time the dems have, Stepped Up the Impeachment Investigation. What a joke. Dems are coming off as a bunch of whining babies. DO SOMETHING!!!!! How much more do you need???

  39. The Democrats may appear to be "late to the party" but you know they are careful, organized, co-ordinated, and ready. They have crossed the t's and dotted the i's and are r e a d y.

  40. Trump will not be impeached. Billionaires love all the benefits they get from Trump. Billionaires own our government, so no impeachment.

  41. It'd be nice if Congress would stop wasting tax payers money and focus a little more on doing something….anything….to benefit the American people.

  42. The Dems area a bunch of cowards and Pelosi is is just throwing out EMPTY threats. They need to either put up or shut up.

  43. Gonna be tough ta pull off comin from child molesters ! They know they cant pull this off cause they dont have the votes . Meam while your sides slowly getting picked apart ! Another dem picked up by the law yesterday ! Epstein manifest is 99.89 percent democraps ! Kimmels on the list , cooper , colberts on the manifest !
