  1. Graham “wanting” Giuliani up in front of the House is just more stonewalling because he knows Attorney/Client will be played. If the House defames Giuliani surgically? There is a double edged sword (that masquerades as a lynchpin) if there ever was one.
    Should they do choose this tact? They’d full well better have their timing right, and play it with other cards well.

  2. American gets sicks to see and hear donal trump talk lmouth liars cover up all over again he's disgusting person corruption treason abuses power breaking constitution dictator him not above the law throw him in jail asap.

  3. OBSTRUCTION OF THE CONSTITUTION, TRUMP DOESN'T RESPECT THE CONSTITUTION,IF HE GETS AWAY WITH THIS CRAP AMERICA IS DOOMED THE RED ONE THINKS HE IS ABOVE THE LAW IF COMRADE MITCH, ' BUM BOY BARR' RUDY TUTTI, AND POMPOUS POMPEO OBSTRUCATE THIS INVESTIGATION, THEY ARE ALSO GUILTY OF ABUSE OF THEIR OFFICE

  4. If a judge subpoenaed me and I refused to show up he would without hesitation issue a warrant for my arrest. That is what needs to happen. Go arrest the next one that refuses and then watch how fast they all begin to show up ready to testify. If Trump thinks this is a game he can play and get away with it, he needs to be shown how dead wrong he is.

  5. WTF is wrong with msnbc?
    There are 40 million people in the US without healthcare!
    There are millions of people who barely live on minimum wages! We have hundreds of thousands of homeless!
    We have committed illegal wars in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Afghanistan!
    We have killed millions of innocent people due to wars!
    We have funded terrorist groups in Syria!
    We blindly support the evil Saudi regime which supported Osama Bin Laden!
    We breached the nuclear deal with Iran destroying US credibility and we impose crippling sanctions on Venezuela so that we can control their oil!
    Noooooo, that's not news worthy!
    Let's just focus on Trump and some make believe collusion and conspiracy theories that only effect the criminal oligarchs in Washington!
    Great idea!

  6. Rudy testifying under oath…that'll be completely hilarious…no meaningful information of course, but hilarious (and incriminating which will make it even more hilarious). I can't wait.

  7. trump and the entire executive branch is now involved in obstruction of justice. They are engaged in a coup of our government and the House must start subponeaing all those who refuse to show up. If they do not, they are in violation of the law and must be arrested, or are we going to let our Republic fall? Are we really going to have a monarch trump?

  8. Thank you msnbc for giving trump more coverage then any democrat candidate. Free press thank you you for your support.

  9. Trump's behavior reminds me of when I was little and would hide from my mom when I knew I was in trouble. I knew she was gonna find me. She knew it too. It was only a matter of time.

  10. Just so I am clear, Seculo or whatever his name is did not know about what Quasimodo was doing until it was public because it was out of his "Jurisdiction" but, he did know and maintained communication with Manafort's lawyers? Do I smell bull feces here?

  11. Trump did not only pressure the Ukrainian president he threatened him; exactly what Putin is trying to get from this fake president.
    …and wait for it – Turkey have just begun with their campagn to destroy the civillians of the northern Syrian towns by air strikes upon civiliian areas – so much for Trump's 'most wise' threats to Erdogan. Erdogan is laughing his autocratic socks off at the Donald's idiotic threats. Welcome to yet more slaughter mr Trump due to your weak and idiotic foreign policy.

  12. Rump should be arrested and put in jail that would show him he is not above the law after all he is not doing anything for the country only for himself and his company so he will not be missed and the country would run nicely without his input. Just see what he is doing to our allies the Kurds abanding them to the Erdurwan tender mercy for slaughter.

  13. IF I WAS INNOCENT OF A CRIME I WOULD BE ALL UP IN YOUR FACE PROVING IT…
    POTUS PIG AND HIS PIGLETS NEED TO STOP RUNNING AND HIDING.

  14. DONALD TRUMP IN IN MY ACCOUNT TRYING TO TALK TO ME THROUGH HIS ACCOUNT !!!! IN THE WHITE HOUSE SECRET SERVER !!!!! OMG !!!

  15. Why won’t the house vote to officially begin an inquiry ? Because this is all a political show. Warren caught in another lie, Bernie is on a gurney and ole stinky Joe smells of Ukraine, Chinese and Russian favors – they’ve got no chance in 2020

  16. If there is no backbone in democrats now, does the law matter ? Does the law matter for the rest of us if it doesn't matter to the president ?..

  17. Presenting: Atgolf Twitler's Hocus-POTUS horror show: One ominous act after another making the truth be concealed, misconstrued, distorted, disappear, vanish, disintegrate, evaporate. Bonus act: "Cordon around Gordon" featuring special guests: truth-magicians Rudy Giluminati and Clown Prence Milky-Mike.

  18. What I think is that trumps attacks on Biden are fruitless. He isnt going to be in the debate. This delusional president doesnt know what's going on and Warren or Sanders wins.

  19. Obama buddies Marty Nesbitt and Harreld Kirkpatrick III formed a private equity investment firm called Vistria, right around the time Obama was re-elected in 2012. A curious pattern began to emerge. Obama and his administration would attack industries with government power, which led to substantially lower valuations for these companies. Nesbitt and Vistria, or others close to Obama, could then acquire those assets for pennies on the dollar. As an example, for-profit higher education schools like University of Phoenix, ITT Technical Institute, and DeVry University. In 2013, Obama blamed the schools for taking advantage of students by saddling them with massive amounts of student debt, ruining their credit and making a profit on it. He ordered the Federal Trade Commission to go after them.

    In the case of the University of Phoenix, its parent Apollo Education Group was suspended after a Federal Trade Commission investigation in 2015. The following year, three companies, including Vistria, swooped in to buy what remained of Apollo at a price 90% below its share price before the investigation.

    As Vistria's education investment portfolio bulged, a number of Obama Education Department officials, including Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, ended up taking high-level jobs with Vistria. "Over the next seven years, as both Joe Biden and John Kerry negotiated sensitive and high-stakes deals with foreign governments, Rosemont entities secured a series of exclusive deals with those same foreign governments."

    In December of 2013, for instance, Biden traveled to China for talks. He brought Hunter Biden along. While there, the senior Biden soft-pedaled China's clear aggression, and played up the bilateral trade partnership. Ten days after the trip concluded, China's central bank, the Bank of China, set up a $1 billion investment joint venture called Bohai Harvest RST. For the record, the "RS" referred to Biden's son's firm, Rosemont Seneca.

    That's questionable enough.

    But months later, in July 2014, Secretary of State John Kerry traveled to China, also for talks. Kerry talked little of China's clear aggression, but did conspicuously note that "China and the United States represent the greatest economic alliance trading partnership in the history of humankind."

    He should know. In the ensuing months, Chinese government-linked firms took major stakes in several of the firms owned or controlled by Hunter Biden and Chris Heinz, and provided them with massive funding totaling billions of dollars. Nor is this the only scandal involving John Kerry.

    And this just scratches the surface. Americans would be smart to question why their representative go to Washington as paupers, and return as millionaires.

    We can only hope that as Biden or Kerry gears up for a challenge to Trump in the 2020 presidential contest, they will receive the same relentless scrutiny that a Republican with the same record of venality would get. But we won't hold our breath.

  20. Guillani is Trump's new Michael Cohen fixer. Barr is not an Attorney General, he is Trump's personal Attorney. Trump acts like a dictator already. Trump tries the super-obstruction, and what is frightening is that the republicans does not wake up. The hope is in the few exceptions which the media could make louder.
    Pressuring Ukraine for private purpose is illegal, but leaving Syria, without asking anybody is unloyal, immoral and inhuman. And a strategical mistake which threats the National Security of America and other Countries.

  21. Every time you use the word "inquiry" you remove the legal nicety of "impeachment" and place yourself in the position of conducting a "witch hunt." Impeachment inquiry is a non-starter.
    September 30th, 1999: President Clinton signed a treaty between the United States of America and Ukraine "On mutual legal assistance in criminal matters." President Trump may ask for Ukrainian assistance.

  22. What is amazing and puzzling is the fact that the honest people of the State, Justice, FBI and intelligence communities don't revolt and refuse to carry out these illegal positions and orders of the leaders of these departments.

  23. Uh oh, Mueller lied under oath and is under investigation and it looks like Rosenstein also lied about wearing a wire and his private conversations to Mueller also exposed. Durham's expanded investigation / crew seems to be uncovering a whole lot of Swamp Creatures along the way. Durham's interrogation of Brennan is only the beginning!

  24. Regardless of political parties, I see a man that openly asked foreign powers to interfere in our elections! Our Congress has every reason to secure our nation and investigate this threat! What is wrong with
    people?

  25. Regardless of political parties, I see a man that openly asked foreign powers to interfere in our elections! Our Congress has every reason to secure our nation and investigate this threat! What is wrong with

  26. it will need to get physical to defeat Trump, like an eviction,
    he will need to be physically restrained and handcuffed.

    Trump is basically a disturbed person, which means that as a child he must have been abused,
    either sexually, physically or psychologically.

    disturbed people have an urge to re-experience the original abuse,
    Trump wants to be violated, he wants to be arrested, he wants to revisit the original abuse,

    he wants to get angry, to become pitiful, he is begging for it as they say.
    He wants as many big things as possible to be blamed on him.

    all people have an urge to re-experience things of childhood, because that is at the centre of your personality,
    you want the same things to happen the same way, because it defines you.

    I had a situation with a character who I later found had been thrown out by his family and was in foster care,
    in a dangerous situation involving the guy where he was throwing objects at me,
    he pointed at his own nose and requested that I punch him, he wanted me to hit him,
    it was quite strange. I rejected the request in case it was a trick.

    the other case is a guy who as a child was punched in the face by his dad and also ended up in
    foster care, he is into cage fighting and he told me the thing he likes above all else is
    when he gets punched in the face, it makes his day and feels really good. He also is drawn to re-experiencing the original abuse.

    that is what Trump wants, he wants to be tasered and handcuffed, to be publicly shamed,

    but everyone is so polite and kid gloves with him!

    the unusual thing also is that Trump is also a proponent of cage fighting, UFC.

    I think the person who wants impeachment of Trump more than anyone else isnt Ari but is Trump!

    people are completely misreading the man, thinking that he doesnt want to get in trouble, in fact he is on his knees pleading for trouble, hit me, hit me, hit me, hit me with your rythm stick, hit me slowly, hit me quick,

    Ian Dury and the blockheads.

    Ari likes music quotes, so that is my quote.

  27. A "Face Off" has been occurring in the US for years. Something has got to give, and I feel in my bones that the Republican Party is about to self destruct.

  28. Does not Sekulov know that it is the right of Congress to start an impeachment inquiry? The Congress and the POTUS are on equal footing. Balance of power.
    Where did he go to law school?

  29. From here forward to qualify to run for President one should be mentally evaluated! And if they have dictatorship tendencies be removed from running.

  30. The House of Representatives/Democrats are Attempting to GATHER THE FACTS. The Senate/Republicans are Attempting to DISTRACT THE FACTS!

  31. All three of you sound like the instance of when a turd is flushed down the toilet. But if the toilet is plugged with a bunch of lies then you will be sitting with crap on you face at the end of the day

  32. We are in a constitutional crisis. We have a conman president who refuses to recognize the power of Congress vested by the constitution, and a judiciary that is being corrupted and used to delay and diminish any attempt at relief from the third branch. When you have a illegitimate president, an impotent Congress, and a subservient Judiciary, what are citizens still oath bound and loyal to the Constitution supposed to do?

  33. All of our institutions have failed us, or have been completely corrupted. Even news media have been rendered useless by the propaganda disguised as news from Fake News and other trump controlled outlets. Even facts are disputed and sycophant Congressmen argue against their own authority.

  34. Just wait till the court orders Trump to turn over evidence, and Trump says no.
    It'll happen, count on it.
    Trump will NEVER willingly give up power, you can bank on that too…

  35. Ok, since it is a constitutional crisis, WTF does that REALLY mean?!?!? Can they forcefully get docs, can they forcefully remove him!?!? WHAT NOW?!??! Start fining and arresting those who defy!!! ENOUGH is ENOUGH

  36. Trump is a coward who throws his most loyal allies against ISIS under the bus. Just because Putin wants him to. Putins little lapdog.

  37. ALTER EGO ~ Donuts Trump produced by Putin 👀🤳 ~ 🏌️‍♀️📷🏌️‍♀️ ~ 🧯🚽💥 ~ ☝🤣

  38. Nobody's getting impeached guys. You are embarassing yourselves. More, I mean. You will not regain power. Hilarious.

  39. I would LOVE to see Rudy give sworn testimony on the hill! He will spill his GUTS and lie under oath the next minute! Love. It.

  40. A group of psychiatrists wrote a book called “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump” He is poisonous, do not touch him.

  41. I do know what Weak Nancy Pelosi is waiting for. EVERYONE Except Weak Nancy Pelosi is asking for Impeachment, and not for an useless "Inquiry"

  42. Q-Name the political party that went to the Ukraine in 2016 seeking and paying for dirt on Trump.
    A-The Democrat Party
    Q-Name the country that is largest single donor to the Clinton Foundation.
    A-The Ukraine. UH oh.

  43. Trump & his minions are showing total contempt for the constitution & getting away with it, they don't care about laws. Trump's destroyed America more in 3yrs than the KGB during the entire cold war!

  44. Jay Sekulow's stammering and evasion after Ari's "When did you know?" strongly suggests that, although he may have had no part in, nor prior knowledge of the Ukraine shake-down, his involvement in the damage control/cover-up began well before the public first learned of it. In his claim of ignorance "…until all this got really public", the word "really" is a typical disingenuous qualifier inserted to provide future wiggle room.

  45. Let Congress put one or two to jail among Trump puppets to show detriment to others.Subpoenas anyone subpoenable pls..

  46. Nixon. Reagan, Bush, Trump. Endless scandals. Unfettered profligacy, Triggered recessions and depressions. Still the American public keeps going back to this bottomless well of iniquity and incompetence, the Republican party. WHY????

  47. Without his power hungry lackies trump would of been out. He listens to them to blame them in the end. But "ASHES,ASHES THEY ALL GO DOWN"!

  48. Pelosi and Schiff must now move to indict and charge these people with obstruction of Congress and contempt of Congress they must start jailing these people

  49. The timeline showing when various individuals distanced themselves from this Ukraine business could also chart their relative levels of moral integrity, competence/experience in foreign affairs, and (not coincidentally) even serves to rank their intelligence. Starting on the left, career diplomats and administrators backed away first. Next, the WH lawyers moved in to cover-up, and – while careful to cover their own butts – quickly reined in the clueless political appointees. And finally, at the extreme right we may one day find Dumb and Dumber (aka Giuliani and Trump) whose points cannot YET be plotted …until they are finished incriminating themselves.

  50. The days of redacted Mueller report.Trump went and silently hid out at Mara Lago.He was planning on going fugitive.Barr gave him a little longer rope.

  51. Impeach that treasonous Putin's puppet immediately! Enough of this foolish lawlessness! Just despicable and disgusting! Impeach! Impeach! Impeach that traitor! Period!
