  1. toute les personne que trvaille as la coommunication quand on parle de court rien nest drole mem si tu parle du coupable et sa parceque vous saver pas sil est coupable mes vous vous rier en pleine face lors de vos parole cela me prouve que vous e6te aussi corrompus que les terroriste parceque la parrole est larme la plus puisante au monde

  2. I will always remember pelosi as the coward that allowed all of this to continue. She said it herself. Her signs are in the basement. Why fight so hard all your life and then at the end stop fighting? Impeachment and locking him up is the only true justice for all of his many crimes and also for americans to feel safe that believe in democracy and the rule of law. What a train wreck we all must fix now.

  3. The only polls that support impeachment Are Fake Polls MSNBCannibals are as hated by the American people and TRUMP is actually losing in his approval ratings by NOT taking decisive action to have MSNBCannibal news arrested and the whole news agency SHUT DOWN for sedition and treason And MASS CONSUMER FRAUD!!

  4. Pelosi is a spineless sell out and deep in trumps pocket. She is trumps biggest protector and needs to be removed immediately

  5. The bottom line is that Trump is corrupt and has shown time and time again that he thinks he is above the law. If Pelosi doesn't impeach Trump then the Constitution has absolutely no meaning. Pelosi might as well just hand the entire government over to Trump for the rest of his life with the way she is going. TRUMP IS A CRIMINAL and must be impeached!

  6. Dems have to pass new laws just to try an impeach Trump, if this fails what they gone try next, time after time, they tried to get this man, why isn't he out of office yet, please tell me who ever is against Trump, for me I don't care whose in office as long as they do right for the people

  7. ????The Dems are the party of mirrors…They keep looking into things, but do nothing.

    The old Dems need to move aside and give way to the new faces on the block, the AOCs and the Katie Porters..At the moment they are Spineless whilst America is being trashed…God help us all because nothing is going to stop Trump at this rate. He become more empowered every day, doing as he pleases.

  8. what a joke ,America is falling apart and instead of democratic house members working they vacation talk trash go on vacation talk trash make up impeachment rules then go on vacation .good job

  9. Omg Trump is getting increasingly desperate lol his stupid questionnaires, surveys and mini-polls are popping up like ads all over YouTube again.

    Once they have your information, who KNOWS what it will be used for!

    Whether you're a Trump supporter or not, I'd think twice before signing up on anything that has to reach out to you in advertisement form on YouTube!

    I'm just sayin' 👍

  10. BWAHAHAHA these people are jokes. Might as well hang a Trump/Pence 2020 sign behind them. Polling indicates this issue is driving more toward Trump than even the idiots on the debate stage.

  11. Instead of impeachment it should be a short, sharp Amendment 25 – Now – then make sure all his ill gotten gains are removed from him and his family!

  12. I'm an independent. I have TRIED mightily to be patient as the Democrat party has allowed "room" for their representatives to listen to their electorate. I approve of that policy (which is in direct opposition to the Republican model, where the reps are DIRECTED on how to vote). But I am losing patience. These representatives must stand up for the RULE OF LAW.. even if that position is not currently supported by a majority. At a certain point, ethics must take priority over electability. We are at that point.

  13. Impeaching a president because he lied about a sexual indiscretion is not the same as impeaching a president who lies in public 12 to 20 times a day about almost everything.

  14. There will be no UNITY as long as Pelosi is the Speaker. What she pulled today was ludicrous. Does she think the people of the US are stupid and we can't see CORRUPTION when its been shoved down our throats for the past 3 years.?? NOW, with her failure and lack of leadership in todays vote, its plain as day that the fix is in. Pelosi is just as corrupt as Trump . Its looking more and more like she wants the GOP to win in 2020. How else will the people get revenge against the DNC except by overpowering her and the DNC with a RED WAVE in 2020.

  15. Like Trump, Mr. Nadler, the people no longer believe a word that comes out of your mouth, the parties mouth and Nancy Pelosi's mouth. The FIX IS IN and the DNC CORRUPTION is running rampant. Its as evident as the nose on your face. We will show you how disgusted we are for not doing our bidding, on election day 2020, when we give the Trump Dynasty another 4 years or maybe by then, they can go down in infamy..

  16. Polling only reflects the answers on specific questions (that can also be confusing) that are asked of a small portion of people. Many people do not participate in polls even when asked to, the reasons are varied, such as timing and means of contact. Phone calls can be mistaken for sales calls or robocalls, online polling could be easily mistaken for pfishing schemes, etc. Even the polling questions that appear on sites like MSN could easily be paid advertisements instead of legitimate polls.
    Another problem with polls? People lie. People will say what they think the questioner wishes to hear. Not a single one of us goes through life without lying, even those of us who try our best to be honest.
    Saying that I don't think many in the entire world could compare to the sheer quantity of lies that 45 tells daily.

  17. File the Motion to Vacate the Chair against Pelosi, House Democrats
    Sack her from the speakership. She has to go. She is protecting this administration.

  18. He has never had any idea what a Presidency means or how it works.
    he has literally cheated taxpayers – not even hiding it anymore.
    watching him do some things a 5 year old wouldn't- and lie.
    lies with every breath- he is a disgrace to the air.
    HIS FAMILY IS TOO. AND THEY DO NOT BELONG ANY WHERE IN POLITICS .

  19. It’s funny how Pelosi remembers the Clinton impeachment as a disaster for the GOP. In reality the Republicans made themselves over as the party of family "values" and, albeit aided by voter suppression (such wonderful values) & the Supreme Court, took both the presidency & the House. The Dems turned into mewling, apologetic, equivocating, spineless cowards who let the GOP install Dubya extra-Constitutionally, and even tho they controlled the Senate, they lied down like whipped dogs, & let Dubya destroy Clinton's legacy & his booming economy. They let GOP voter suppression build in the ex-slave states & the Midwest, until the GOP locked down most of the State govts, & it's propaganda arm, ie Fox News took over the political landscape, while the Dems have been stuck in a mea culpa cower for the past 2 decades.

    Democratic voters are sick of the equivocating. Spanky needs to be impeached, but don't expect Republicans to ever get on board. Fox News opinion shows cont to spread vile GOP propaganda, voter suppression has just gotten worse bc the GOP & their cultish base hve recently thrown off the very concept of shame. Now, thanx to the Fox echo chamber, they feel completely justified in suppressing the votes of college students (they’re too young & dumb to be conservative), urbanites (rural folk shldnt be ruled by city folk – it shld be the other way around), POC (bc “they” aren’t really Americans), & poor ppl (they’re too lazy anyway). They may keep the majority in the Senate and they’ve been completely uncompromising ever since…well, let's see…Clinton’s impeachment! So, what’s the downside of impeaching Spanky? bc politically, outside of Lee Atwater's invention of the racist dog whistle, Bill’s impeachment has been the best thing to ever happen to the modern GOP.

  20. Pelosi might be great for all sorts of reasons, but she has 100% bungled this issue. As Rachel points out, the Democrats should lead the people, not the other way around.

  21. Even from outside looking in, it’s easy to see how hard the Democratic Party is working to ensure that Trump gets a second term. 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
    If only they had the focus the Republicans have when they need to get something done. 🤦🏾‍♀️

  22. I'm annoyed by these so called experts criticizing the Democrats and how they are handling this. First of all, they are doing it legally, the normal process, and to find facts to back up their impeachment process. The fact that the people being subpoenaed are defying to come in, is the problem. It's like if you get a parking ticket , you are given a date to show up in court…if you don't, the judge issues a warrant for your arrest, and you stay in jail till your court time comes up. So be it, for these people defying the subpoena, deny them their freedom and put them in jail. Once they see that one person in jail, the others will think twice about not coming in to testify. The fact that the GOP in the House and the Senate do nothing about it as well, also shows it is not the Democrats that are the problem. People forget that in 2018 the Democrats finally got control of the House, why is it all of a sudden like they can solve a problem that has been going on for years? The only way they can change it is to get the courts to legally bring in the subpoenaed people in question, and through the power of lying to congress, then jail them for contempt. In 2020 we vote to remove the GOP from the Senate as well, so with both barrels blaring…we get all of the GOP that have enabled Trump to recklessly bypass Congress with his Executive Orders, when they were the very ones who complained that when Obama used it, it was overstepping his powers. Yet the GOP allow Trump to do whatever he wants. Vote blue 2020 and beyond..as for me, an independent, i'm never voting for a GOP candidate for the rest of my life.
