Only registered users can comment.

  1. Lawrence O'Donnell's Last Breath: MSNBC fan Kim Foxx makes new requests in black racists Pussie Smollett case.

  2. Your Sociopath-in-Chief and his odious, evil Cabal ( McConnell, Graham, et all) make Nixon and Watergate look like a middle-school prank. The Constitution gets pushed closer and closer to the edge of a precipice.

  3. Don't be fooled by the White Liberal noise Like MADDOW and the Clowns at CNN who think they are the gold standard of Progressive thinking.  Well to do Libs like her who hide and March behind social justice while protecting their own privileges.. They show off FAKE empathy while sipping guilt free on Bubbly behind gated walls far from the violence and the problems.  There millions of them well to do Democrats who hide behind social justice while protecting their own privileges….all profiting by making you the Victim!!….

  4. Amazing the Well to do Subarban Liberals have so much Compassion with other people money…but are so greedy with theirs…Fake Empathy!

  5. The democratic media repeats the same script on every issue. Repeat the same buzz-word" constitutional crisis" until it's etched in stone. No wonder your ratings are a joke,because you are slanted,biased one-sided arm of the democratic party.

  6. A constitutional crisis is what the scared liberals start yelling when they know they are up to their eyeballs in corruption and know their goose is cooked.
    It is what they yell when they know they have no way to stop the momentum of payback that the President and the republicans are about to throw their way.
    It is something they scream to keep their under informed voters thinking they are still going to get the President out of office.
    It is the speech of hypocritical losers. PERIOD!!

  7. I'd say the impeachment process should be started simply to look into if there is enough to support a vote. Starting the process would remove a lot of roadblocks that the president is currently putting up.

  8. Impeachment might be Trump's best chance. If he can dirty any possible jury pool available to any future indictments is one advantage. The second is that it would take the Senate to impeach Trump, sooner is better ahead of more inpeachable behaviours getting exposed. Remember it was the exposure of the tapes that finally pushed Nixon out. Not the knowledge of, but the actual testimony.

  9. It is beyond offensive what he is saying about Mueller!!! There is no word for it – the fact that he is comfortable to lie like that, that alone makes Trump not just the worst president but the worst person ever!!! Anything that perverts justice, is nothing but evil!!!

  10. My god, what delusional garbage. You would fail Constitutional Law 101. In fact, you deserve less than 0% because you sabotage the basis of the rule of law – and indeed the very meaning of words themselves. You are not even bad journalists – you are D-grade propagandists.

  11. Even kim jong un called trump a dotard, because everyone can see trump is mental, mentally crazy. 25th Amendment him out.
    Pelosi has to start the impeachment process, as she is who has been keeping trump in the wh.

  12. We are not in a constitutional crisis the constitution is intact we are in a Republican party crisis a Republican party refusing to obey the constitution and the rule of law.

  13. No, he should not be "impeached", he should resign this moment, without costing the nation further dozens or hundreds of millions of dollars for such a procedure. Before he damages the office and importance of the presidency even more than he already has.

    But he won't do it as he is unable to do the right thing.

  14. Trump incites violence exactly as rabble rousers of the past have done time and time again. He appeals to and exploits our lowest, basest instincts unapologetically, yet wants to be accepted as a spokesman for our nation, a nation whose Constitutional laws and privileges, as well as the ideals held dear in the Bill of Rights, demand behavior and accountability far above the vile, demeaning hatred he animates and opportunistically reinforces to support his evil and genuinely unAmerican agenda that has absolutely nothing to do with making America great, much less great again.

  15. Cuz its obvious,no??? Americas own London Tower, good for queens, boy kings, tax evadors and traitors alike..Federal prison. Buh Byeee🎶. Nancy needs a nap.

  16. Lawrence, the rest of your weave falls out in 12 years if we don’t collect carbon taxes. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😇

  17. When the President and the Senate GOP do not uphold their oaths of office and a Republican Party machine is openly working with Russia, I would say that there is a Constitutional crisis. I hope that our judicial system hasn't been so politicized by McConnell that their lawlessness can be stopped, but that is yet to be seen. The SC has been stacked with ultra-conservative, federalist-society picks so Americans can't expect them to do the right thing for our country: they are going to force a corporate dictatorship upon our country.

  18. Trump dangled a job in front of Mueller to try to keep him from being appointed as the special counsel to handle the investigation.

  19. WHY DO PEOPLE EVEN LISTEN TO HIM. TRUMP LIES, LIES, LIES. HIS ONLY GOAL IS TO GET PEOPLE ON HIS SIDE.

  20. "We have someone who's in love with James Comey, he likes James Comey they are very good friends supposedly best friends, maybe not, you look at the picture file". I didn't copy the statment exactly but close enough to capture three things so Trump. (1) Claiming something as fact, then in the same sentance putting in a disclaimer "maybe not". (2) Using the term that two men are supposedy "in love". He used this affectionate, indearing term for his relationship with Kim Jong-Un. Here he's not using it as a good thing. (3) Who wastes time looking up an extensive 'picture file'?

  21. Blah blah blah..a contrived drama to rival a soap or world wrestling event..
    Meanwhile the environment, social security.medicare..banking regulations all are going off a cliff

  22. Remember that polls will ALWAYS show that Trump is supported by anywhere from 35-41% – in other words, his rubes. They began as haters, and were thus vulnerable to brainwashing by Republicans. After brainwashing (mass hypnotism), they are no longer CAPABLE of changing their minds. That was the whole point of brainwashing, and their unfailing consistency in supporting Trump, even against their OWN BEST INTERESTS is the proof of hypnotism/brainwashing. So the polls will never lower that number who approve of him.
    With polls meaningless, why make them? The only real movement to note is among those who favor taking Trump down. As those numbers rise, we can get some idea of how many people, (the ones still able to think) are leaning.
    I disagree – the Constitutional crisis is here and now. Because the Constitution itself is being not only challenged, but violated. The Constitution says the IRS SHALL provide returns on any citizen to a Congressional committee. That has already BEEN violated. So the Constitutional crisis is already JOINED. The Rs oppose following Article 1 of the Constitution. It doesn't require the SCOTUS to refuse to enforce the law. The violation of Article 1 is clearly a rejection of the Constitution itself. We shouldn't have to wait until that rejection has come full turn and it's too late to do anything about it.
    The SCOTUS gets involved only when it hears a case that has been decided in a lower court that the Constitution ITSELF has been violated. With that as the clear issue, the SCOTUS is required to defend the Constitution. But with a stacked SCOTUS, that may not ever happen. Why else do you think the Rs have stacked our court system so thoroughly?
    The Constitutional crisis was already known to the Rs years ago, because they, in lockstep, make votes and decisions that are aimed at destroying our Constitutional Democracy. They've known their own intent a long time, but it has taken many years for the rest of us to see that true intent. Now we do. If anything, the Rs are proclaiming and broadcasting their contempt for the rule of law and the Constitution ITSELF. It is irresponsible for the rest of us to refuse to acknowledge what is right in everyone's face.

    What is in our faces is FASCISM. That's as UnConstitutional as it is possible to get.

  23. constitutional crisis is the very one thing that trump uses towards authoritarian/dictatorship I bet my dollar on that

  24. If impeachment is in for Donald Trump than who is it for? These Democrats needed to put on their big boy pants on and do it already!

  25. Hey Lawrence. Did you expect AG Barr to break the law and release confidential 6E findings? Nadler is delusional
    and his desperation smells worse than an outhouse in Tijuana. I do recall you and others whining about contempt
    when AG Holder was held in contempt for lying about Fast & Furious(selling AK47's the the Mex. cartels) wherein
    innocent Americans were killed. Hypocrisy? You bet.BTW the IG Report and Barr's investigations are ongoing. Uh oh.

  26. Trump clearly is inept as a president. Why anyone thinks he is worth all this attention, who knows what would happen if he didn't get air time, he'd shrivel up and die.

  27. Lol, great turnaround on Trump's accusation of a Comey-Mueller bromance with his own stated bromance with Kim jong. As usual, Trump is guilty of whatever he accuses someone else of.

  28. The most despicable reckless un-American president to ever grace the WH/Oval Office. Where is the desperately needed “checks and balance” from the other branches of government? If it is around, when will it be acted on?

  29. Impeachment is not right for Trump. He has to be voted out by the people, not by Congress. If all the allegations against him and his fraudulent past are overwhelming then the courts should intervene and make a case against him to be ousted from office. Only WE THE PEOPLE SHOULD OUST TRUMP.

  30. Hey Larry, I’ll bet you I can find 3 equally educated psychologists that can read the report and give you a completely different reading. I can find a tea leaf reader who is probably closer than any of them.

  31. What we have here is a "CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS"…it's a "CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS"…and now we have a "CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS"….and we have a "CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS"…..blah blah blah blah…gee the pinheads on CNN and MSLSD are so creative that they share buzzword phrases and the phrase of this week is "CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS"…2020 is around the corner and I can't wait to see all of those media faces in utter shock when Trump wins….it will be a "CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS"!!!!!!!!!!! And for all of those mental "wizards" who still think Trump is hiding something….pleeeeze….get a brain!

  32. Please don't avoid that word Constitutional. Trump is doing everything to evade that word. And because of the Confrontational Crisis, it is now causing a Constitutional Crisis so in essence it is a CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS after all.Btw, Mcgahn should just testify and set the record straight about Trump asking him to get rid of Mueller.

  33. constitutional crises = the lies that are told each and everyday by cnn msnbc and the democrats thats what a constitutional crisis is 24 hours a day

  34. Sunday 12 May 07:54 Hard to believe that a conman like Trump can draw circles around the system like this – he's a very dangerous, dishonest, incompetent, lawless, crazy, sick man. 🙄

  35. Heads are going to roll but the ones that MSNBC have been promising and prophesying about for the 2 years. Buckle up Lawrence the ride is going to be bumpy.

  36. Trump have an exact mental derail, low IQ LOSER insight and EVIL heart as Adolf Hitler!, Donald J Trump and Adolf Hitler could have been twins !

  37. If any president's actions and disgraceful behavior ever called for impeachment, it is obvioiusly trump. Even Nixon's crimes don't hold a candle to trump's. The House must take action and impeach trump now. The country is counting on you to do your Constitutional duty.

  38. So what happened to the constitutional crisis? The House isn't going to call for a vote to Impeach Trump or hold Barr in contempt.

  39. The RUSSKY mobs are owning and controlling the Executive and the Judicial branches. If the States level of law fail to put an end to trump's mobsters operations, we are F*^R#@KED

  40. This station is the crisis. So negative with LIES, MANIPULATION AND THUG BEHAVIOR….. Stop trying to make something out of nothing! GO TRUMP

  41. If you can't get trump because he's untouchable in the present then go after his cronies but put some teeth on it .

  42. Rash, short sighted decision making with no cosideration of consequences. Very well put. Short phrase…ignorant.

  43. With everything we have learnt about Trump & Muller, I guarantee you Trump that more Americans beleve him over you.

  44. Geeez, it's going to REALLY hard not to have a, "Good-bye Cabal Ball" after this is all over. I mean a huge party in the convention centers of every city in the US. Complete with valet parking, spot lights, fireworks, a theme song, spiked punch, an eighties band, photo ops, a count down, presents, origami, a bounce house, comedians, at least one democrat in a pie in the face booth, at least 2 democratic leaders in a dunking booth, CLOWNS, and…wait for it….AN AFTER PARTY to end all after parties!!! Any suggestions for a theme song?
    By the way, after reading several comments in this section I see some views of President Trump that are, to keep it short, grotesque. The level of ignorance of these people is disgusting. Read the reports for yourselves. Stop watching the news for your information. Don't you see there is a contest going on here for your opinion? Can you not see that these bitter moves from the democratic lefties are only in the interest of winning the next election? Their lies are the veil that is being pulled over your mind. Do some real research you lazy bunch of weak minded sophomores you are. Choosing your political affiliation for "likes" is a pathetic way to live. It will have lasting emotional scars on your already depleted subconscious mind and may lead you to becoming one of those hyper-sensitive, triggered people you see on the memes that are so funny to the rest of us. Well, it's more of a sad/funny thing because I do feel like they are truly suffering inside. Like when Helen Keller couldn't see, speak or hear and people where being cruel to her by yelling at her and poking her with sticks and trying to show her how to use toilet paper. Hmmm, how do blind people know when they are finished wiping?

  45. You hear that democrats? He's telling you how to feeeeel. Respond with what you have been indoctrinated to do. Be triggered. After all if you feeeeeel something you must be right..

  46. Russian collusion = trump hysteria
    Obstruction = trump hysteria
    Constitutional crisis = trump hysteria. What's the next trump hysteria

  47. President Donald J Trump and his GOP party's congressmen and congresswomen have taken a political bet in the confrontational game with the Democrat-lead House of Representatives when they put up a stonewall in fighting to stop ALL subpoenas. It appears that they are thinking that they are rolling down a winning tactic against the House's investigations led by Democrats. They have completely forgotten or pretended to forget what had happened in the precedent circumstances well before Trump elected: former president Richard Nixon's impeachment process 45 years ago, and former president Bill William Clinton's impeachment process 20 years ago. It is just a matter of time, soon or late, President Trump and his GOP allies will learn a hard and painful lesson of colossally political failure.

  48. There is a constitutional crisis, like the Russian Hoax, where our President was falsely accused of colluding with Russia, when in fact it was the DNC and Hillary that colluded with Russia. The Constitutional Crisis, is just as real, but again, the Democrats are pointing there fat fingers at someone else, other then the people who are actually responsible for the Crisis.
    The Democrat Party has unsuccessfully used every part of the US government to attack its political rivals. It has used the IRS, the FBI and DOJ, the CIA and NSA and the Liberal Court systems and now all they have left is the Congressional Committees that they still hold power over. But it is now out there for everyone to see, just how they are using their committees chairs to continue to attack our President and not to do the job they were sent there to do. Which is to help We the People !!!

    There is a Constitutional Crisis, and the only way to resolve it is to abolish the crooked Democrat Party !!!

  49. Has anyone looked at the comments on the "fair & balanced " network ? It's unbelievable , it's seems those people & republican members of both houses read a different mueller report ( well 80% of it ) than I read.

  50. There is so much that needs to be addressed before these next elections… We come in DEAD LAST in Electoral integrity among Western democracies. We've ranted about preventing International influence from effecting our future results, but fail to realize that we're losing our very voice in government to internal bad actors far more often. We MUST INSIST on serious regulation, paper ballots, AT LEAST.

  51. It is high time to shoot Trump and some members of his family to save America. This pig within two years has ruined all sense of ethics and morality by this large and great Nation. Everything is reaching dust level.

  52. Trump also has a Trump Collectables web site. Selling hundreds, of self glorifying, COINS Currency notes, clothing, and sets of other items. As usual all this merchandise has Trump's name and picture on yhem. Does this not violate the Constitution as well? These items are also sold on Evangelical TV shows. The Jim Bakker show has been prompting this selling of Trump items for HUNDREDS of dollars. Claiming Trump as the NEW MESSIAH. And SAVIOR of the world.Also is Newsmax which does the same, selling of Trump products.

  53. TRUMP haters have brain disorders and low IQ and ungodly liberals and globalists who are enemies of Democracy and Bible freedom of speech and Arts etc

  54. "President Trump" has a chip on his shoulder. Nancy Pelosi has the gavel to knock it off. She will use it when the Manbaby and all of it's babysitters compels her to.

  55. We have been in a constitutional crisis since McConnell refused his constitutional duty to hold Supreme Court confirmation hearings. We just bent over and accepted it, just like we are doing right now. If people want action they have to take action!

  56. I cannot grasp the concept; why are they giving this lunatic so much Power? Are they just dragging this on to 2020 giving him another opportunity to Jeopardize America?

  57. The republicans party will not do anything to stop trump the republicans party like the powers they have …. the republicans party are showing that they don't care about this country or the laws ….

  58. That turd needs removing from office they should ban him from Twitter he's a danger to the United States and the world.

  59. The turd Wants to Rule the presidency with dictatorship totally obvious obvious looking on from the uk what he's up to… God save America the country the world once respected.

  60. A constitutional crisis refers to a situation dealing with the inability to resolve a disagreement involving the governing constitution of a political body. Typically, a dispute or an interpretation or violation of a provision in the constitution between different branches of government is involved.
    Fake president .

  61. so the only question remains ARE WE GOING TO HOLD these Republicans who protect him accountable?? we need to VOTE ALL OF THESE PEOPLE OUT!! our allies have given up and called this administration a threat, what else??
