  1. The chances of Tump unilaterally declaring himself president for life are small. Thank God. Meanwhile we may have to put up with this stuff for the next five years.

  2. Maybe the governments of Scotland and Ireland should look into how Trump properties can stay open while losing money.

    myself I see everything on the same flow as of 10 years ago. Mr Trump has done many things, improve the economy is probably not one that he should take credit for. I believe we would be better off crediting President Washington, and all of Our ForeFathers setting forth a Constitution for every man/woman far before Mr Trump climbed into the saddle, and firing the gun claiming his attributes as POTUS!

    "R" (many ignore, many don't hear) wisdom has its future…

  4. If Trump was interested in outing corruption he would first begin with himself, his entire adult life, impeach and imprison himself.

  5. You guys still have no idea do you?.. I'll give you a little hint… Biden will now be the Democratic nominee… A month ago, Elizabeth Warren. Trump has already won. You're all oblivious.

  6. From over here its obvious that any other Republican or Democrat candidate can win the next election legitimately and without the foriegn baggage and interferences #trump cant do without. Imo Laurie

  7. I bet all the traitorous GOP are hiding under their rocks for the rest of the week.. Those guys are only here to collect checks from lobbyists and dont care one bit about America

  8. Why? Does this come as a surprise… His behavior is the same as it has always been, corrupt, kaotic and reckless! The pathology of his arrogant mindset is on display everyday!

  9. UKRAINE has been a ''country'' only 18 years. before that it was Russian territory for 100s of years. UK France Turkey fought the CRIMEA WAR in 1850s for it. ''charge of the light brigade'' it was the birthplace of STALIN & many ''Russians still live there. not easy to divide

  10. Late capitalism is Mafia capitalism. The US enabled it the world over in the post-Cold War years and 2016 the chickens came home to roost. Trump. Trump is a symptom of a larger disease which is late capitalism itself.

  11. Biden is going down. He is bragging on a YouTube video.
    The Democrats are communist. You believe what this leaker say. Lies, lies.

    Nadler is doing a illegal impeachment inquiry. He can not start sending subpoena with out the impeachment inquiry says they can start impeachment.
    Nancy and Nadler are so stupid they said the House did not have to vote. According to the constitution they need majority off the House. The votes are not there. 19 is not enough. Impeachment inquiry has not said that there are high crimes high misdemeanors.

  12. The Democrats lied they were communist all along. The communist Democrats have embrace communism. With a communist agenda.
    The communist globalists own the media.
    So the media is a communist media. They do what communist do best is lie, steal, chest. Stop believing the communist media.

    This is why they are called fake news.
    I can see this people lie. They blink so much. They are lying.

  13. MSNBC YOU KNOW you are following your communist leaders agenda. Your day is coming too. For misinformation and helping the communist Democrats to overthrow the USA president. Then overthrow the government. Install a communist party.

  14. Nbc why didn't you bring up the Joe Biden scandal back in 2016 when Hillary brought it up to get Joe Biden to stay out of the race ? I remember the New York Times writing about it back then. Crickets for 3 years.. Now it's Newsworthy ? Oh.. Wait… You're only mad because Bidens Ukrain deal and Schiffs Ukrain Deal and the Obama Russian Rosaton deal are all exposed to some sunshine.. Zzzcxxx. yeak thats got to be bad news for Deomocrat Socialists. I see why they are trying another fake Coup against the President lol. Most people learn from stupid mistakes but dang… Yall just keep making the same mistakes over n over n over n over like youre stuck in a loop. 😀

  15. MSLSD. Stop lying, say no to drugs. Biden's guilty, prosecute them. Stop ignoring real crimes committed by your side.

  16. Trump broke the law, again. He doesn't care and thinks he can do what he wants. He needs to be removed, as do those who are in league with him. This gets more insane by the day.

  17. Time to end tRump. Come on, Secret Service people, I know it's hard to do, but tRump needs to be taken out for the good of the country.

  18. Here's Trump crime/violation arising from the Ukraine transaction, 52 USC sec. 31021 (along with citations of federal criminal code dealing with conspiracy:
    a) ProhibitionIt shall be unlawful for—
    (1) a foreign national, directly or indirectly, to make—
    (A) a contribution or donation of money or other thing of value, or to make an express or implied promise to make a contribution or donation, in connection with a Federal, State, or local election;
    (B) a contribution or donation to a committee of a political party; or
    (C) an expenditure, independent expenditure, or disbursement for an electioneering communication (within the meaning of section 30104(f)(3) of this title);

    The general federal conspiracy statute is 18 U.S.C. § 371. This statute criminalizes both conspiracies to defraud the United States as well as conspiracies to violate any other provision of federal law. By the text of that provision you can see how the two elements work. The statute says that it is a crime,

    [i]f two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, OR to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose, and one or more of such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy.

    Bear in mind, charges may be brought under each element. Interestingly, with respect to the first element, Chief Justice Taft in In Hammerschmidt v. United States defined the term "defraud":

    To conspire to defraud the United States means primarily to cheat the Government out of property or money, but it also means to interfere with or obstruct one of its lawful governmental functions by deceit, craft or trickery, or at least by means that are dishonest. It is not necessary that the Government shall be subjected to property or pecuniary loss by the fraud, but only that its legitimate official action and purpose shall be defeated by misrepresentation, chicane or the overreaching of those charged with carrying out the governmental intention.

  19. America needs a mama.
    A firm but fair, loving mama.
    An intelligently caring mama.
    A mama with warm and soft boobs to comfort the nation.

  20. US give aid to Countries to keep US Military Basses in their Country , it is not from the goodness of their heart .

  21. I hope that China investigates. I can use a good chuckle. It would be delicious if they reported on Ivanka`s graft as payback for the tariffs. LOL

  22. Donald Trump's entire presidency has been an exercise in creating an unprecidented constitutional crisis. No president of the United States has ever worked harder to undermine the US Constitution; no political party in the United States has ever overlooked such clearly evident illegalities as those being perpetrated by the Trump administration as the Republican Party is today.

    The United States Constitution is the highest law in the land; no one is above the law, not the president, not his administration, not the US Congress, not the US Supreme Court, and especially not the president of the United States.

    It is obvious we can't last much longer considering the level and nature of crimes and the rapid pace they are happing at. It is only a matter of time, a few months at the most, that Trump will declare marshal law and cement himself as permanent president of America. Time to arm yourselves.

  24. I've known for more than 30 years the Republicans are traitors to the country, if this is knew to anyone, shame on you.

  25. What I find with trump, he says its OK for him to ask foreign countries to investigate his political competition. YET he will NOT cooperate with his own country that is investigating him, and the rest of his crooks. Its still an investigation. Home grown. Which should be handled by Americans not by other countries.

  26. The criminal activity of the Obama administration was an embarrassment to every American. Thank goodness the peoples President is putting together an international task force to investigate their nearly endless crimes.

  27. God almighty, Donald Trump is about the lowest form of life on the face of the earth 🌍 is there nothing this orange 🍊 faced grifter will not try to bargain with? Our flipping national security? Someone please get him the F- – k out of the people’s White House!! Up yours Trump!🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕

  28. What will Trump do when he is subpoenaed to testify in the House or the Senate? His lawyers informed the Mueller attorneys Trump could not testify because Trunp cannot tell the truth. Trump will not go easily, unless he can get a promise of a pardon from Pence?

  29. I always laugh when we talk about other country's corruption when you think about our justice system and how it varies based on race and socio economic factors. a black man gets a different justice system then a white woman, a poor white man get's a different justice system then a rich black senator, but yeah Ukraine is corrupt…

  30. #IMPEACH drain the #SWAMP #bankruptcy #King #fake how can you trust a person who has avoided serving the country 5 times. #Deferments
    A true #Patriot #RobertMuller #MULLER

  31. Hey I'm just wondering if he's going to admit to being Putin's puppet? If he does that what would happen? Besides Putin poisoning him? Would the US go after Putin?

  32. It's just amazing to me that a man who went through the whole Russia scandal still doesn't understand what collusion really looks like.

  33. ok now we ALL saw this…heard this…the WHOLE WORLD SAW AND HEARD IT ……!! NO more inquiries or investigations… he just handed IMPEACHMENT on a silver plated made in China platter..just like at the G7 when the WHOLE WORLD SAW AND HEARD HIM VIOLATING THE EMOLUMENTS CLAUSE … GET ON WITH IT

  35. OMG!!! And he called Hillary Clinton a criminal that should be put in jail, back in 2016 campaign. With each passing day, he is backing himself into the corner by exposing his criminal activities to the world news. Sorry, Fake News in Trump's eyes. WOW! why has he not been impeached long before now?

  36. Commit a crime and do a cover up is awesome. Commit a crime and brag about it is tremendous. Trump strategy in a nutshell.

  37. Trump knows it’s a crime. He thinks he’s above the law. He doesn’t care. He’s crazy and a criminal. Lock him up for God’s sake. Really! Yes move away from haggling with Trump. We have long since had plenty to impeach Trump on. Long since! We have enough! He’s a traitor!

  38. How on earth is this lying grifter allowed to remain in the White House???!!!! The enormous damage being done to America by the entire Drumpf family, and their over arching love of money, will take a decade or more, to absolve!!! Enough already……America, you MUST try and regain the world’s respect! Putin, China, North Korea are laughing at you!!!!!

  39. Trump is ahead of Creepy Uncle Joe in all internal polls. This entire gimmick is proof positive that the left knows that the public is on to them! Uncle Creepy actually polls better than Pocahontas but the fools that depend upon MSNBC for information will never know that. Please pass the popcorn!

  40. They shouldn't let Giuliani defend Trump, because now he's known to be a coconspirator. I'm surprised that Giuliani hasn't been disbarred yet.

  41. certainly not a fan of Trump,The man is half-witted,That said,What President is squeaky clean,Has any of the recent men in the WH walked out of office broke? the whole system is crooked,They might go into politics with good intentions but they all come out as crooks who have enriched themselves on the backs of the American people


  43. It's just a matter of time. The democratic party is continuously growing, expanding and attracting the majority of young voters. The GOP does NOTHING to diversify or attract young voters. The GOP is shrinking, getting older and more narrow. The GOP is DYING!
    ….and that is BEAUTIFUL!!!

  44. "Sure he robbed the bank in broad daylight and without a mask, but he was only kidding. Jeez. You press people are so easily incited to report crimes committed in broad daylight." Is this really the best defense?

  45. I don’t see anything wrong with finding everyone skeletons in their closets . I want see all the corruption

  46. We have a senate that protects trump, supreme court appointted by trump, we're totally SCREWED. Besides the light of the house of representatives. God please save us all.

  47. Bidon had unanymous open international support and publicly sanctioned with full support of congrrss & parliament to invite removal of a prosecutor that wouldnt fight corruption…. and trump?…well secretly pressuring a new pres for personal benefit extorting him for a quid pro quo clearly and one he couldnt possibly refuse or admit feeling pressured. He was pressured to deny feeling presured.

  48. We The People ,,,,,,,,, think that the president of United States Of America ,,,, (Donald Trump ),,, is getting crazy, and he should be impeached. and kicked out of the White House.

  49. How can comments here be 1 month old when the video is only 2 days old? There are SO MANY 1 MONTH OLD. How and why?!
