  1. Pelosi is against impeachment so is Hoyer. Which begs the question: Who is in charge of the House and Senate Democrats?

  2. The DNC is 100% responsible for Trump being president. Most Bernie supporters know this very well.

  3. On behalf of all Americans, especially Trump supporters, thank you Elizabeth Warren! We The People demand that the Fake President be impeached and indicted for his crimes.

  4. I'd like to see Trump gone as soon as possible so he will stop hurting our county. One thing dems may not be factoring into the political formula they are now calculating is leading up to, during and after his impeachment by Congress he will go so far off the rails the Senate will have to convict.

  5. No. No dont try to play this for politics. Trump deserves to be impeached. Let's be honest with everyone – dem and rep – and say we are working towards impeachment. Reps can play that game but lets, as dems, be better than that. Let's be honest and let the chips fall where they may. The voters can make up their minds one way or the other but hiding behind the election to avoid doing the right thing is wrong.

  6. I feel like Democrats shying away from impeachment would amount to playing politics (and heavens know Republicans will accuse them of doing that anyway, no matter what happens next).

    If Trump broke the law, he should answer for his crimes, just like anybody else.

  7. :It_s time FOLKS … Trump needs to go. HE NEEDS TO BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE.

  8. It is about precedent and the rule of law. Congress' constitutional duty DEMANDS that they impeach Trump. The constitution doesn't say "you must make a political consideration." This is about our country. Nixon lost the presidency- he was forced to resign and receive a pardon, he lost the House and Senate. Clinton copped a deal, and then dems lost the next presidential election. If you do consider the politics, I would say that impeachment would help the Democratic party.

  9. clinton was impeached under a single count each of obstruction and perjury ~ trump has 10 such incidents of #obstruction. impeachment is the correct action for the house – even knowing that mcconnell will never bring it to a vote in the senate #ImpeachTrump

  10. I think they should give him an ultimatum. Either they get his tax returns tomorrow or the start impeach proceedings immediately . The trick would be to get his returns and then start impeachment proceedings anyway. The republicans would cry foul and say that's what we would do, its not fair if you do it! But Donald would be on a plane to russia before anyone could blink.

  11. They cut out the part where he says, "No one disobeys me!"

    I guess Cohen, McGann, Lewendowski, Comey, Sessions, Nielsen, Cohn, Cobb, and all the other people who saved his butt from committing crimes would beg to differ. 😃😄😆😅


    Yeah, that's the tweet of a "confident" man not at all worried that impeachment is coming.

  13. 2020 vote will be corrupt. Do your job. The vote already happened. Impeach.

  14. When will impeach Warren . She made it to where she is by using the Miniority card . She claimed a Minority in many ways and she lied. That's a major Corruption and she should be impeached

  15. We are bowing down to a criminal and his cult followers now? Spineless, amoral, politicians.

  16. Waiting to vote him out is rolling the dice, where impeachment proceedings (while not guaranteed to succeed) have a far greater margin of likelihood and evidence to support them.

    And, as was pointed out, drags all the dirt front and center which may ultimately be healthier for the nation and our elections.

    But Dems are afraid they'll lose and tank their chances for the big chair in 2020.


  17. I keep hearing these folk say The People don't want to impeach & we don't understand the process of impeachments. Uh yea we do! & all I see is people saying Impeach the f**er! So where are they getting their info. Stop speaking for the US People! Have the guts to go Live & let Real people be seen & heard calling in or videoing in to talk! Just an unscripted, free flow of calls of real Americans from all over the country. Tired of these liars speaking for US!

  18. We have never had a Russian asset as president ever. This is disinformation propagated by Russia using "MSNBC hopefully unknowingly" to try to destroy our union.

  19. Mr. Mueller created a one-way street that could not have found the president committed a crime, but it could have found him innocent. And unless you understand this legal framework, you won't understand the Mueller Report at all.

  20. I think the Democrats have lost the will to protect, maybe the Republicans have become traitors. The GOP should be called the Trump Protectorate Cult. Putin are liked more by Republicans than conservatives love Reagan.

  21. Warren is actually writing up bills and talking about impeachment. Proving that Democrats can walk and chew gum at the same time.


    If they don't impeach, then firing the FBI director to stop an investigation into your activities is something presidents can do.

    If they don't impeach, then firing your AG so you can install one who will coordinate with you about an investigation into your activities is something presidents can do.

    If they don't impeach, then using the presidency to profit from your business is something presidents can do.

    If they don't impeach, then presidents can collude with the Justice Department prior to the release of a damning report, that's something presidents can do.

    If they don't impeach, then presidents can order their staff to sabotage federal investigations to obstruct investigations into crimes they've committed.

    If they won't impeach, presidents can feel confident about instructing federal officials to break laws, with the promise of presidential pardon if consequences arise. That will be an acceptable use of presidential power.

    If they won't impeach, a political party that has proved itself actively hostile to democracy itself, the Republican Party, will know that they have no real opposition, none at all. That will be something they know to a high degree of confidence.

    If they won't impeach, presidents can feel quite comfortable countermanding regulation to give an unqualified family member high level security clearance, even an individual who's made dozens of false statements on clearance forms.

    This is just by memory, by the way.

    This is just off the top of my head.

    What am I forgetting?

    Because all of that will be fine for presidents, as well.

    There is no other way.

    They must impeach.

    They must.

    All this is already out there. They don't have to wait to investigate.

    They should go on investigating. They should investigate every last thing. Subpoena every last individual. Prosecute. Prosecute.

    But impeach first, and impeach often.

    Not one day of his presidency should go by that he's not being impeached for one of these things above, or one I've forgotten, or one they find in one of the investigations into the same.

    The investigations they can sure enough conduct WHILE impeaching.

    There is no other case but impeachment. It must happen.

    It's not a strategic matter. It's not some savvy 5th dimensional political chess.

    It's a question of whether we have a government or not.


    Those who would rather use Congress’s power to investigate rather than impeach: who told you those two things are mutually exclusive?

    They aren’t.

    Why do you think they told you that?

    Why did you believe it?

  23. The Constitution demands that Congress begin impeachment proceedings against Trump. The time is NOW.

  24. Democrats talking about Trump is like watching a bunch of Jussie smollets try to change Americans opinion by saying the same thing over and over again their attempts at division of this country is evident that they are in a mad scramble to win public approval the propagandist campaign is a projection of their own parties criminal activity their a losing side in this war

  25. Where is the courage of the Republican's? Where is the Honor & the Decency & the Faith that they cherish?

    They seem to have forgotten what being a Republican is supposed to represent. They have somehow decided that the Republic is less valuable then holding office.
    They have to decide if holding office is worth the price they have to pay with their honor.

  26. Hi Nicole.👋.
    Exceptional reporting, Nicole.👍☺👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏.
    Keep on digging, Nicole.👍.
    👉👉Patience👈👈 democrats, patience.👍.

  27. Not above the law. No matter your station in life. How is this tenet so difficult to enforce under these current times regarding a clearly inept individual running an equally inept administration? P.S. It's time for you to go dude.

  28. I'm totally with Lindsey Graham on impeachment: "impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and integrity to the office." -Lindsey Graham (R-SC), January 16, 1999

  29. Pretty sick of watching Pelosi do gymnastics in front of the cameras to NOT impeach this incompetent leech

  30. I think the corn chips were better than the wheat crackers, but ya, we're heading to Blockbuster video after this

  31. Impeach Trump -> Pence is POTUS and makes Sean Hannity his VP -> Pence resigns -> Fox News is president

  32. 0:45. If We Don’t Impeach President Donald Trump, Where Is The Bar?

    "By my count, there are now four grounds to impeach Donald Trump. The fifth appears to be on its way. First, in taking the oath of office, a president promises to “faithfully execute the laws & the constitution.” That’s Article II Section 2. But Trump is unfaithfully executing his duties as president by accusing his predecessor, president Obama, of undertaking an illegal and impeachable act, with absolutely no evidence to support the accusation. Second, Article I Section 9 of the Constitution forbids government officials from taking things of value from foreign governments. But Trump is making big money off his Trump International Hotel by steering foreign diplomatic delegations to it, and will make a bundle off China’s recent decision to grant his trademark applications for the Trump brand – decisions Chinese authorities arrived at directly because of decisions Trump has made as president. Third: The 1st Amendment to the Constitution bars any law “respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” But Trump’s ban on travel into the United States from 6 muslim countries – which he initiated, advocated for, and oversees – violates that provision. Fourth: The 1st Amendment also bars “abridging the freedom of the press.” But Trump’s labeling the press “the enemy of the people,” and choosing who he invites to news conferences based on whether they’ve given him favorable coverage, violates this provision. A fifth possible ground if the evidence is there: Article II Section 3 of the Constitution defines “treason against the United States” as “adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.” Evidence is mounting that Trump and his aides colluded with Russian operatives to win the 2016 presidential election. Presidents can be impeached for what the Constitution calls “high crimes and misdemeanors.” The question is no longer whether there are grounds to impeach Trump. The practical question is whether there’s the political will."

    4 (And maybe 5) Grounds to Impeach Trump

  33. you know why all these people in congress are running for president ? …………………………………………because congress is a totally nothing job.. they don't do anything ……but if you run for president , if youre a democrat ….you can go on MSNBC and promise the moon , because you know you don't have to deliver

  34. being in congress would be like working for msnbc , nothing to do but keep talking till the next commercial.

  35. Elizabeth Warren is wanting to impeach President Trump isn't she the one that lied about being Native American so she could get special deals and help that that proves that you are definitely idiots to go on her side

  36. boy the clown car is getting bigger all the ones that are running against Trump I can't wait to see the clown car pull up and all the clowns get out

  37. I like John Heilmann suggesting that the dems best play is to drag the congressional investigation(s) out. That the impeachment proceedings won't succeed and and trump will benefit.

    A couple of days ago I liked Elizabeth Warren's suggestion that the principle is the right thing. For the longest time before that, I liked what Nancy Pelosi was saying which was the politically pragmatic approach. This is a bell of a debate going on. Bottom line for me is that Michael Cohen should not be the only guy that ends up spending time behind bars from the trump organization.

  38. We need to be rid of giggling idiots who giggle about CORRUPTION. MsNBC shows contempt for viewers with these Foxlike giggly hosts. Bring back real JOURNALISM.

  39. Are you willing to potentially aid trump with a predictably failing impeachment just for the sake of principles? That might mean 4 more years of the orange criminal in office.

    I rather convince the electorate to vote him out and then bring down the law on private citizen donald trump on January 21st 2021. That way justice can be served and the chapter of trump closed without another day of his regime of lies, deception and hate!

  40. do your job corporate dem $hills… as directed by the constitution.

  41. Borrowing a quote from Manuel L. Quezon ( Philippines president 1935-1944) "My loyalty to my party ends where my loyalty to my country begins."

  42. So you think it's better to disregard constitutional duty? If you don't Impeach him he wins!!!!!

  43. U have To O CHANCE of IMPEACHING a PRESIDENT for Crimes that the Criminal Corrupt Democrats have Trump said it's GAME OVER now the Criminal Corrupt Democrats and fake Lying news PAY DEARLY for your COUP ATTEMPT against a Sitting president of the United States.GITMO IS YOUR FUTURE BELIEVE THAT.PAIN COMING

  44. For impeachment too but they the Dems just might bury themselves before 2020. Pelosi IS right.

  45. I like presidents better when they aren't criminals, and release their tax returns like they promised.

  46. all options are on the table.  Trump is already tarnished as a president and will never be trusted to run in 2020

  47. Impeachment will bring out the truth and the GOP will not dare to say Trump is above the law.

  48. The US has lost its moral compass -impeachment is a start to regain it.


    (The Media needs to do a better job of explaining the EMOLUMENTS CLAUSE to the Public (simply put:,those are Anti-Corruption Statutes, in the Constitution, that expressly prohibit a standing US President from using/ ABUSING THE OFFICE of the Presidency, for profit &/or personal gain; This prohibits acceptance of money, gifts or anything of value, from foreign governments &/or special interests).

    In short, the EMOLUMENTS CLAUSE(s) encompass the very PAY-FOR-PLAY Corruption that Donald Trump campaigned against, and several Legal experts & Constitutional Scholars had predicted that since he refused to divest from his businesses (nor, put them into a blind trust), DT was IN VIOLATION OF THE CONSTITUTION’s EMOLUMENTS CLAUSE(s), the moment he was sworn in as POTUS.

  50. Not a real republican, a republican at heart. This is the Greatest you will ever make. If you just walk off and drop this you are a Republican at heart that is why 2 Children can die At the Border and they see it as a victoryStop this, it will not happen You, Mr.Steyer you are going to pay a Severe price for this in your own Heart!There are options

  51. Actually, any Senator who votes against impeachment will be branded a traitor. It is clear that Faker 45 takes his orders from Putin, our sworn enemy.
