    All senators currently running for president sitting in this impeachment hearing needs to recuse themselves as this is a conflict of interest. They have all to gain by removing their political rival. Why is this not being mentioned?

  • 464batman

    If the evidence was so overwhelming to impeach in the House trial why need more witnesses and evidence in the Senate trial? Makes absolutely no sense at all.

  • Wolf Pack

    The witnesses that they never subpoenaed in order to avoid a court decision? Where now they are demanding the senate compell when they woudnt?

    Get rid of career politicians, lobbyists and limit contributions to a candidate to 1k per person or corporations and let them serve only 4 years then go back in the workforce. Cut their pay to middle class pay with no healthcare then you’ll find out who really cares about this country and those that are about power and money!!

    Wouldn't it be great if you idiots actually told the truth for once. You'll have to look up the definition of truth to even know what I'm saying. Dumb dems

  • A seagypsy's Adventures

    Trump 2020!!!
    These criminal Democrats will be no more!!! Sounds like the democratic news media is becoming neutral when they see they are losing!!

  • Cpt. Walker

    This is all because the Democrates didn't like President Trump investigating Joe Biden's corrupt and blatant abuse of power.

  • R R

    To say DJT interfered with his election opponent is ridiculous . As of TODAY there is no Named Democratic Candidate. They have no election contest to date. Joe Biden is a citizen like me . Maybe I am running for president yet I would not get the same preferential consideration that the Bidens do. As far as his kid? Also check out all of the business deals Biden's brother was involved in where Joe Biden was the leader representing our government. It is just like insider trading. BTW which is illegal. The public simply sees through this and will not stand for it Schiff Pelosi and Schumer have all lost their way ..Too old Too bad. Time for new leadership with a moral compass not a vendetta

  • R R

    Its right in front of your face ….Also Bernie is awful and old Bye bye The dem Partyis trying to manage him out and he is taking the bait each time What a fool

  • Donald Horn, II

    Anyone who supports Trump is supporting a false God and the Anti-Christ. History will be a harsh judge and your souls will be forever and indelibly tarnished.

  • R Ramos

    Its almost like republicans are so stupid because they dont know old videos can be brought back and show how big of hypocrites they are. Its only a matter of time they outlaw bringing up old video

  • SD

    CBS CNN Fake news specialist 😂 impeach Nancy for abuse of power – how about you report on The outrageous corruption that Democrats keep turning a blind eye to as you guys do. Clean the swamp

  • Darlene DeVegan

    Massive conflict of interest to have Sanders there. He is running against President Trump and puts down President Trump every day in his dozens of tweets. He should be removed. What a joke Lefty Liars will stop at nothing. Trump2020

  • jeana sears

    These Democrats are so disgusting. They try to act like they speak for the American citizens. They speak lies and waste time on what they could be actually doing for the American citizens. Trump 2020!!!

  • jack fitchett

    The only redeeming factor in all of this is that eventually, after the Republicans destroy the constitution and get OJ, oops i mean trump, off he will eventually go to jail for the many things he is currently under investigation for civilly. So justice will eventually catch up with Trump. As bad as this sounds for the country, part of me hopes he screws up big again and all the republicans that have chosen to close their eyes and put their hatred of the other side over the constitution, will also suffer greatly. This is sad. And in the immortal words of Al Pacino, Scent of a woman, "If I were the man I was five years ago, I'd take a FLAMETHROWER to this place! " That's how I feel every time I watch our leaders just ignore each other and listen only to themselves.

    Watching Schiff is like watching a police officer lecture the mob that criminal behavior is wrong and that we need a fair trial.

    So trump pressured Ukraine into announcing a (sham) investigation into his political rival in exchange for 400 million dollars in military aid that were already pre conditioned by congress. Trump claimed his "favor" was an attempt to fight corruption although Ukraine already met all requirements regarding that matter.. President Z feeling pressured, informs his ambassadors he doesnt want to be a pawn in an american election. Trump insists his phone call with Ukraine was perfect (however that's quickly proven otherwise). In addition to this, the president withheld a crucial meeting to the oval office of a European ally in an ongoing war with an authoritarian regime. "Assuming President Z announces the investigation, we'll nail down a date for the meeting"- 30 minutes before phone call

  • Lisa X

    Trump supporters would believe it if their governor was caught at 3am buying drugs in a bad part of town if he said "I was doing the work of law enforcement".

  • Million Dollar

    Even if trump walked out in the middle the street and killed somebody we would all still like him and support trump 110% kick those dumymrats out of the country and let's clean this country up once and for all and really keep the trump train moving even better make our country great forever!

  • conan Smith

    There is nothing fair about this trail! I think the reason Pelosi waited so long and delayed it so long is that she needed to blackmail some Republicans into turning on Trump!

  • Noue Havea

    Americans don’t want the impeachment.. it’s the bully democrats wants him out because he’s doing an AMAZING job that no one else has the guts to do so!!! TRUMP 2020

  • David White

    Sorry I'm from. Ireland, this funding you're all taking about,, was it in fact value of arms as Ukraine got a loan from the IMF and didn't need the money, oh I get it now, US arms companies sells the arms to the US government and get a mark up,,. And push it of as funding, omg what a great business plan. No wonder Trump wanted an investigation. That's why the democrats want to stop Trump, as the democrats will be caught with their hands in the pie.

  • matt Johnson

    Why are they constantly repeating what has already been said this is gettin more and more stupid as it goes embarrassing the white house lookin like high school bull

  • David White

    Hunter biden s company Brisma was under investigation by the UK government for corruption, that's a fact, noone in the US does any research, call yourself a reporter, and so the democrats are maladaptive daydreaming. Oh and the British money laundering investigation of brisma was stopped by the Ukrainian s.

  • Norris Thomas

    It's absolutely hilarious watching them blame everyone except the one person that's responsible for this whole mess. Let Bolton testify

  • Keith Perry

    8:40 there was another major change as you said in your statement schiff there was a new president in Ukrain. It makes sense that people might want to look into him.

  • IK Rico

    List the names of the Republican Senators that disrespected the hearing and walked out. If they are my Senator I want to know. It is their job to be present, objective and respectful!

  • jeff coseo

    So what are these morons going to pass they do not want us to see this time. Cause I find it hard to believe that anyone really cares about this impeachment non impeachment BS.
    Last time during all the impeachment BS during the House side. They passed the 1 bill they said the wouldn't. A.K.A. The Patriot Act again.

  • David Lagarde

    Dem refused to allow Rep during the house process….so Now the Rep are pissing on the Dems……just another day in Washington DC

  • Keith Perry

    10:34 if you love the constitution stop trying to ban guns get rid of red flag laws do away with the patriot act. No one in the government lives the constitution anymore the are all liars when it comes to that statement.

  • NU BE

    Trying to plow through this #sham
    Can’t make it through in one sitting, thank goodness we can skip through the garbage CBS commentary.

  • Patricia Durden

    Fair, huh? Fair trail he says… Like it was in the basement. There is no cover up on Republicans side. The Democratic party are the ones pushing an impeachment for such ridiculous reasons. Good grief. Do something about real issues in the country. President Trump is still working hard in spite of all this junk. I will be voting for him 2020 💪👍

  • Patricia Durden

    What I see is the Democratic party is the problem in the swamp. Hopefully they will get drained out after all this !!!💪

    부시는 거짓말이라도 그럴싸하게 이라크에 살상무기 있다 해서 침공이라도 했지 저 병신트위터새키는 뭘 얼떨결에 지가 실시간 중계를 왜 하냐 대통령이?? 그런새키가 미국을 이끌어야 하는게 비참하고 창피하지가 않나 미국 국민들은?

  • Rodney Stevens

    Shouldn't the Hearings be commented on by seasoned professionals as oppose to twiddle dee and twiddle dumb? No analysis just parroting the Dems talking points as if they were facts as opposed to political opinion. Sort yourselves out or die from public ignominy.

  • John Ladouceur

    The Dems claim unfairness ,what a crock of Sh##T, they hold a unfair secret hearing in the basement of the WH and shut out the Republicans from asking question and bringing witnesses and now cry foul in the senate which they have no control. They are hypocrites and liars. You dont impeach a President because you don't like him. Their actions are so obvious.

  • Puc Puc

    The House rules governing impeachment need to be changed to require a 2/3rds vote to impeach. If this does not happen, anytime there is a party difference between the Executive Branch and Legislative Branch a newly elected President will be impeached as soon as he/she is sworn in. What a disgrace, history will not be kind to the Democratic Party over this waste of time and money

  • sandra burke

    CrowdStrike HOW ABOUT CrowdTangles?? Will the Democrats Speak of it?

  • luis jimenez

    is a trial without a witness ,or documented evidence a trial? republicans really believe Americans are that stupid ?comatose mutants?

  • Thomas Fuller

    The liberal media have become pathological. They
    are writing the postmortem case study for future journalism classes. They have
    become our Tokyo Rose, our Baghdad Bob. The National Enquirer is more reliable.
    Evidently, liberalism has become the new bigotry. You can't tell bigots a
    thing.

  • D.R. W

    tThe Democrats are calling abuse of power every since Trump was elected to office. They never work with him but were duly determined to work against him on every thing that he was trying to accomplish. If you want to see abuse of power, Look forward at Virginia and what Northam is doing to the people of Virginia. Talk about abuse of power!

  • Sharon Gardner

    The stupid house has the CONTROL of whether or not to have witnesses. They DROPPED the ball because they are so inept !!!!

  • JoAnne Denison

    there was a court decision McGabe. the gop igored it. the honest legislators should move for a default based upon non cooperation with discovery.

  • Real Talk With Marcus Devernear

    It's time to change our office of these yellow back players. Call your US Senator and claim for legal system. One that protects the American people. We should hear from the witnesses and put this case to an end once and for all. We should not have senators protecting their best interest and throw our laws under the bus. Time to go. Hear our voices. Call your US Senators @ 202-224-3121. Demand that your voice be heard.

    Actual coverage rather than commentary starts at 1:56:11. Skip all the talk in between live coverage. Listen to the evidence directly and make you own decisions. 2:42:01 starts second piece of actual coverage. Return to coverage 4:40:32. Results of first vote 6:02:45. Return to debate 6:39:37

    Uber and Lyft are not letting us drivers choose what we are willing to drive for and set our own fares. Please help the California drivers. They are both not telling the truth. We are making less now in 2020 than in 2019. We are not getting paid while driving to the rider and while waiting for the rider yo come out.

    A man who bends is indispensably compromising his integrity: https://youtu.be/TB-CF8p-HrE?t=743
    Bernie seems not quite well, lost weight, looks old with sunken cheeks and hollow eyes. What did they threaten him with? Torture, a root canal or he will not be nominated even if he gets the votes as he is not a member of the Democratic Party. First it was Warren, the Biden. How many more times will he bow his head in shame?

  • Hans Lennros

    Why are the democrats upset for losing? Everybody knew and told them they would long before they did!
    The House ascertained that the only charge against Trump was that he had used a foreign power to influence the 2020 election. It was already from the start a stillborn charge because the election hasn't taken place yet. How could they all have missed that very basic fact?

    If you think about it illegal immigrants can be worked for pennies, and colored folks won't become rich unless they decide to stop using social security checks, and food stamps. And decide to actually work on making their money work for them… hmmm… well played Democrats well played, you still have your slavery, and oppressed blacks.

    Citizens gets paid the medium wage witch is $7.25 in Louisiana USA.

    Illegal immigrants can be paid basically what ever if you think about it.

    Social security checks gets you only a couple hundreds of dollars a month, basically enough to keep 1 person alive.

    While starting/ owning a properly run business can get you thousands of dollars if not then millions, or billions if done right.

    Last in final sense illegal aliens, and colored folks always vote Democrats they know if they have plenty of illegal immigrants to vote for leaders that they can stay in power.

    Theirs also the factor of they rather have illegal immigrants over their own citizens, and want to take away our 2nd amendment right, and first if allowed.

    When its basically against the law to take away our rights to begin with.

    Then there is that they should care about their citizens over illegal immigrants. Why? Because illegal immigrants aren't citizens, but they can become citizens though. Ether way as the government they should think of their citizens first.

    Fool goes into office his seen as a great man.

    Mad man goes in office he is seen as sane

    Sane man goes into office he is seen as mad, and as a fool.

    Also politics isn't a religion, but a opinion on how to run the country.

    It seemed as if my life was out of control when I discovered that my partner has someone else. I trusted a friend who convinced me and introduced me to a hacker @redhackpro on Instagram who could hack my partner's mobile phone. You can also send a message from WhatsApp + 1937-815-1491
