  1. Interesting that the GOP will investigate anyone, for any reason, no matter how delicious (Benghazi, hillary's emails, etc.) except for a fellow republican.. The GOP has got to go. They only represent themselves and their wealthy donors.

  2. Through our studies of philisophical research we know that the mirror is one of the highest forms of flattery and what we are looking at is a mirror of duplicity which very well may be a mystery or a ministry!

  3. Nixon, Trump, Bush Jr, Reagan, whatever. Since Eisnenhower, the only GOP presidential with any credibility was Bush Sr. the others were/are all symptoms of a terrible cancer.

  4. Americans really are the dumbest race of people, they have a so called Democracy( I say "so called" cos it never really was a Democracy) but they are all against Impeachment of a President as they don't want to weaken the office of the Presidency like they can in real democracies like England……In other words in America they really elect a KING……and just call him a President to pacify the mob and let them think they are voting in a Democracy……America is a very sick Country and it has a class system not unlike England in the Days of Robin Hood……….only in England given the chance the English peasants would have been smart enough to Vote for Robin Hood over the Sheriff of Nottingham who would not have got a single Vote…..different in America…..,Robin Hood was a socialist, we don't want that, what we want is high Taxes, no benefits(cos benefits are socialist) and torture, we want out kids poisoned so the rich can get richer?? What a bunch of idiots! now I know there are a lot of Americans who are not stupid…….but the question must be asked…….if they ain't stupid why wouldn't they leave??……and I am not just talking about the Trump era…..he is only there because the American System allowed it, he could not be elected and if he was he would have been kicked out in 5 minutes in any other democracy on the Planet…..cos they realize he is only a Man…..not a KING!!!

  5. Bernie Sanders 2020!! …Tulsi Gabbard or Andrew Yang for V.P. ….Mike Gravel is Awesome too! …these are true non establishment progressives who really care for the working class Americans. No Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Julian Castro, Pete Buttigieg, Cory Booker, Beto Orourke, these are political establishment puppets who do the bidding of corporations. ….there just as bad as republican candidates. Get out the Vote, health care is a human right!!

  6. Even a Fox News poll shows that 51% of their viewers believe Donald Trump should be impeached! There's your proof that public opinion is changing! 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

  7. The nasty woman in the center is not nice and very bad! Her sentences are full of words, very wordy! From what I can grasp, she is planning to take away our President from us!!!! We voted for him, but they want to take him away from us!!!! BAD PEOPLE! NASTY!!! — Welcome to USA, 2019. What a fall!

  8. 𝗜𝗳 𝗞𝗜𝗡𝗚 𝗧𝗥𝗨𝗠𝗣 𝗴𝗲𝘁𝘀 𝗮𝘄𝗮𝘆 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀, 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝘀 𝘄𝗿𝗼𝗻𝗴 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗨𝗦 — 𝗔𝗺𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗻 𝗰𝗶𝘁𝗶𝘇𝗲𝗻𝘀. 𝗛𝗲 "𝗯𝘂𝗹𝗹𝗶𝗲𝘀" 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗨𝗻𝗶𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗦𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗪𝗘 𝗹𝗲𝘁 𝗵𝗶𝗺!!!

  9. but today's Republicans are unethical corporate- and foreign-sponsored puppets determined to dismantle the US government

  10. Trump is from a family of crooks. He was taught to be a crook. We will never get to the bottom of all his crimes, but hopefully enough to remove him from his freedom so no more damage is done to the world.

  11. I think that we can confidentially say that the findings of the 6 House Committees presented to the House Judiciary committee will more than warrant a vote for impeachment. And I think we can confidently say that the House will vote to impeach. Now as it stands, unless 20 Republican Senators grow a spine they won't remove him. But as far more evidence comes out, as more subpoenas go out, as more testimony comes out, and he is found to be so obviously guilty, the American people are already just starting to demand he be removed. Imagine the pressure with more evidence and testimony. If he goes to the Senate trial with evidence and testimony against him that it is so painfully obvious there was a quid pro quo, use of his office to further his personal political agenda, covering it up, obstructing the impeachment inquiry etc etc. So much so that it should be an open and shut case. And those Republican Senators let him stay in office in the face of those crimes purely on the obvious basis of Trump/party loyalty rather than on what's best for justice and the country. There will be a republican backlash the likes of which you have never seen, in 2020. I used to worry about Trump using not being removed from office by the Senate as some sort of victory. But the American people will be watching these very public Impeachment proceedings closely, which was not the case with the Mueller investigation. And even if he isn't removed from office. He will have a SEVERE handicap going into the 2020 election. You know it's bad when Trump wants the Biden's investigated because some right wing conspiracy theorists say it's "likely". Or wants Ukraine to help him dig up dirt on Biden, which makes him look scared and weak. And guilty as sin. He didn't have the confidence to win 2020 alone. So he reached out to Ukraine to try to get them to help. Which is interesting considering this similar type of thing benefited him in 2016. The American people will have their say in just over a year. And frankly they are sick of Trump.

  12. I think most Americans would appreciate an exploration into removing all law enforcement power from the executive branch if it leads to totalitarian regimes with such frequency.

  13. Well, at least Trump is confessing in public. If only Democrats could do the same about their collusion with Russia and Ukraine. Let's talk about Democrat corruption. Let's talk about the very REAL scandal of Hunter Biden's dealings with Ukraine, about the REAL attempts by Biden to sack the prosecutor investigating his son. Let's talk about the Hillary foundation receiving 140 million dollars from Russian mining consortium. Not conspiracy, FACT. Let's talk about the prize winning journalists and authors who have BUSTED the corrupt democrats dealing Over and OVER again and MSNBC never talks about. Let's talk about the lies that Rachel (I'm a lesbian so I can do no wrong) Maddow puts out on MSNBC on a daily basis. If you ignore inconvenient facts in preference to lies, then you deserve far WORSE than Trump. And you'll get it too.

  14. Michael Beslosch seems like such an apologist for cynical, power-minded folk like Gerald Ford–and the US media panders to Trump's always outrageous behavior and uncredible statements–why not call him a pathological liar instead of repeating the word 'President' in association with his name, smearing the office that Republicans stole in the 2016 Election Theft. The media we have now is weak, but Ari Melber is a strong and highly intelligent dude. We need more commentators like him who are not afraid to call a 'spade a spade' but in an intelligent and consistent manner, based on the facts. Top notch! Love that guy!

  15. Trump, you have to know that. The Erdogan does exactly the opposite of what he says. We know him better than you. You must not believe everything he says.

  16. Keep in mind this is a continuing trend of the Republican Party to bribe, cajole, pressure, AND/OR bargain with foreign governments to manipulate events to create the conditions for a Republican victory, although domestic voter registration cancellations by the Repubs is a much bigger factor than Russian interference, I believe (PRESS: GET ON THAT!).

  17. GOP foreign finagling goes back in contemporary history to the October Surprise, the Reagan Administration's meeting with and bribing of Iranian officials to keep the hostages in Iran and prevent Carter from being reelected, although he would have likely gotten the hostages freed and our history would be different now, perhaps a lot better…time to take up the offense, people, and get a good set of Dems into the Senate, House, and White House. NO COMPLAINING, NO EXCUSES!

  18. Damned I we do, damned if we don't, …I rather be damned if we do impeach that orange piece of crud…
    Form day one i said, "I have never seen a president of any nation, start a war against the press and win…tic, toc,..

  19. Ari Miller I for one would like to thank you for being a forward thinking, honest, intellect in a media circus. PLLLEASE answer this ONE question from a die-hard fan. Why, who, and or what brought the idea to be so inclusive of modern Black culture (aka My People) in all your shows? This brilliance is one of a kind and not only attracts those who dig our culture, but when they tune in, they're informed Thoroughly as well as having a good time. I appreciate what you and your team work hard to bring us day after day and if you would respond (for me) it would be Legendary.
    Sincerely me.

  20. Why have we stopped discussing the possibility that Trump is a Russian agent? They had dirt on him. They might also have dirt on several Republican senators. There was that weird trip a group of them took to Moscow on the 4th of July:

  21. I'm in favor of Trump's impeachment, but in reference to Ari's statement at 6:52, when did Trump admit his motivation was in support of his reelection?

  22. Unlike the parallel with Nixon and McGovern where Nixon was ahead, Trump is significantly behind, so Trump has a strong motivation to cheat.

  23. A Senator worried that removing an impeached president would weaken the office? How about presidents stop committing crimes?!

  24. I agree that at this point the parallels between the OrangeCunt and Nixon is quite close. As far as I'm concerned, it's pretty clear cut. But the main difference is that back then, we didn't have a general population that were divided this strongly along partisan and ideological lines, and the Republican politicians were not Republicunts, who bend over backward and forward on the whims of a barely coherent septuagenarian imbecile with narcissistic tendencies. These factors will determine how difficult the impeachment process will be for all of us.

  25. If Trump is so worried about corruption like he says, then how about he looks into his own corruption in his administration? If he was so concerned about nepotism, then how about he look into his children in the White House? This guy is just as evil as he is stupid.

  26. the difference is nixon resigned out of common sense & embarrasment.. president pussygrab pornstar corruption has no shame and simply ignores everything.

  27. maybe these idiots should take a look at their electoral college for starters if they are so serious about protecting their democracy and afterwards impeach the whole house for being in the pay of corporations (foreign or not) over the interest of everyone else . This grandstanding by media ghouls is really disgusting me more day to day , it has spiralled out of control .Bernie save us from these monsters.

  28. Eleanor's reference to Louisiana's Republican Senator Bennett Johnson regarding Nixon's impeachment is contrasted by the fact that Bennett Johnson had to step down during the Clinton impeachment due to being caught out having an extramarital affair. BTW he wasn't the only Republican politician that was caught out having an affair at that time. The public saw the Clinton impeachment as a political move by the Republican party strictly for political purposes and resented them for dragging the country through what was basically a private matter that had nothing to do with how President Clinton was performing his duties as president. This impeachment of trump is a polar opposit and has everything to do with trump's performance of his duties as president.

  29. Imagine if this was not happening, how boring America would really be. Apart from them killing each other, what else are they doing or good for… oh that's right.. WAR.

  30. Shakespearian? You know how Macbeth ended? His head rolling down the stairs? OK, so be it. The pussygrabber beheaded is a warming thought.

  31. Trump does this thing with his voice, this growl, that I find really annoying. Part of the absurdity of these "conferences" is that the noise of loud helicopters is going on in the background. … When he says "honest", at approx. 37:00, you can hear this nasty quirk of his voice.

  32. I think Nixon had alittle more brains to resighn. Cheeto will try & tell his base to protect him, & some crazies will take it seriously & do hurtful even death things to people, like he has done in the past. So what kind of proof does the base need? It's cheeto that opened his big mouth & admitted on camera what he did.! Fox, barney & friends mislead people & they are so weak they believe him in the name of hate..So true Americans keep your ears and eyes open at all times.

  33. The tax returns will contain a very odd post from a company named "Treason Purchase" with a certain Parnas and a certain Fruman as owners.

  34. Like during Nixon presidency many folks used to say , they all do this why go after him. Lets face it the word President means to preside over , not to rule as a king . His job is to act as a conductor of a big band he keeps the rhythm going his job is not to play the music , the congress, senate , and courts do that. Trump is trying to be king and dictator.

  35. See the MASSIVE crowds at Trump's rallies??? Tens of thousands both inside and outside the arenas!!! No other POTUS has ever drawn crowds like that!!! GOP senators know they would be committing political suicide if they ever voted to convict in an impeachment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Plus…the forthcoming Inspector General and AG's reports about the corrupt Obama minions at DOJ/FBI are going to make Trump a victim (he was!) in the court of public opinion and the country will gel around him!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. NOTHING IS FREE EVEN even honor and good deeds are given monetary equivalence in now's era, so what is the quid pro quo between trump and gop? there's got to be something, SOMETHING ! otherwise, all gop supporters of trump are deemed stupid

  37. The impeachment of Donald Trumps seems to be a done deal. What then are his options 1) Be removed, arrested and go to jail. 2) Resign, be arrested and go to jail. 3) Opt for harakiri to miss jail. 4) Defect to Russia or 5) Start World War 111. Nuclear war might get him off the hook and end the climate problem as civilization collapses.

  38. Used every means possible to discredit, abuse, alienate and attack when someone else was President. Now it is an unprecedented witch hunt. He has the best brain, the best kid's and in laws, knows absolutely everything to a degree far in excess of anybody else. The U.S President has exceeded Mugabe, Putin, Kim and definitely has Hitler orientated disorders.

  39. Trump's going down in flames. I vividly recall Watergate and I'll be surprised if Trump lasts until the election. He will resign rather than face defeat and republican senator are not going to hitch their wagon to Trump's fall.

  40. History will not be kind to the Republicans who failed to act against 45.  Historians will ask why the Republicans supported this President at the peril of the Constitution.  The other nations will look back at the U. S. democracy as a joke because of Don the Con and his supporters.

  41. The problem of republicans is the same problem of any religious people.
    They put the "word of god", whichever god they chose, over law, over morale, over empathy, over humanity.
    And often they can't even follow their made up religious scripture and the few virtues in there, because religion is a cesspool for criminals, religion is like a cancer in society.

  42. The Ukrainian president won't be left alone as long as trump has anything to say about it.
    He doesn't want an honest senator to speak with him. trump won't let that new president out of his sight until he's sure he's is in the clear.

  43. "Demanading an investigation to take out a rival is exactly the thing that can land a US official in jail" – So why aren't all these Democrats who have been demanding investigations in Trump in Jail already?

  44. Democracy is dragging its feet on impeachment of Trump. The USA has until Christmas to get rid of Trump! After that Trump will dig in too hard to dig out.

  45. America is a big joke . One person which Trump running everyone in one little finger and no law is taking any action to kick him out of the officer.

  46. It is amazing how much time and money is being wasted on this stupid charade. NOTHING is getting done for the American people. Democrats are holding the country hostage while they run their 2020 campaign a year early. Vote ALL of them out.

  47. Paartial reporting is NOT LEGITIMATE. FURTHERMORE, PRESS PASSES shoud be a privilege revocacle gor such reporting.

  48. If Trump’s allegations are correct abt Hunter Biden, then he would/should be Don JR’s BFF, or @ least, business partner. Corrupt dealings is Ukraine-Russia is a Trump thing, too, as we all know.

  49. I agree Trump should stop texting An Twitter.. in time I think he should have all his ducks lined up .. like someone told me.. let the market crash.. cause everyone following his word then talk bad about him so yep Trump when it’s the right time stop on there butts let it all drop!! An then show them how God has his hand in everything..thing is if the market crash yep they going to talk stuff but when you bring it back up there eating there words everyone..! So yess I agree he should stop twittering.. lol!!! God Bless our president..! Another thing everyone should be praying instead of insults..
