100 thoughts on “House Judiciary Committee holds first hearing in the Trump Impeachment Inquiry, live stream”

  • Why Trump even mentioned Biden… Ambassador Yavonovich was blocking the transfer of documents (we have a treaty agreement to exchange investigative material) . Trump had every right and duty to ask about the Crowdstrike server. He mentioned Biden because the prosecutor who was fired by Biden had also been investigating the same people involved in the Crowdstrike fiasco. The announcement was brought up by his Trumps team because Ukraine is notorious for not holding to agreements. And the aid didn't need to be approved until Sept 30th, Trump put in an order to have European contributions calculated. That's in testimony transcripts.

  • Carlos María Beccar Varela says:

    Democrats believe that they are the rule of law and can do what they want, including impeaching the president assuming and presuming they do not need to present any witness 😉

  • The only reason why Republicans refuse to accept these facts is pure partisan behavior. If the roles was reversed and Trump came as a Democrat doing these numerous abuses of power offenses, it would infuriate them, and rightly so. No President Democrat or Republican, should get away with what Trump has done. I'm ashamed at Republicans for refusing to investigate anything and consider the dangers of what they are allowing a President to get away with.

  • Studio Semantics says:

    So one sided, it almost seems like this is designed to be biased. Why do the democrats and never trump always get to speak first? Why do they say his conduct is impeachable when there is no evidence? Why?

  • This President is against corruption. It’s as simple as that. You never seen Barrack H. Obama tackle corruption that’s why it is puzzling so many people. This is how it’s done. I would take a bullit for President Donald j. Trump because if the circumstances were reversed he would do the same for me

  • ElPocho DelMundo says:

    256:42 Turley is wrong on this point of obstruction . RE: Obstruction. Trump is denyinig to turn over EVERYthing, and ALL witnesses. This is not an executive privilege argument.

  • Complete Partisan Sham! No Fact Witnesses. 4 Democrat Professors ZERO Republican Professors, luckily one of them still has Classic Liberal Values and told some truth. Other than that this Whole Process goes completely against the wishes of the American people and even most democrats are fed up with it according to the polls. When you lower the bar this far, be prepared to have your next Democrat President torn out from under you by revengeful republicans applying YOUR new Rules!

  • Bribery, such as other words, definition changes as history goes on. Because we as a people changes and as such words MUST change as often as we change!

  • Studio Semantics says:

    Professor Pamela S Karlan, she said she read all the assumption, presumption and rumors, and call that facts. It is interesting how a law professor can get away without knowing the basic of guilt. Intent and Action, neither those were presented. In fact, one of the witness actually said Trump didn't want anything. LOL

  • Can somebody please tell Sensenbrenner to clear his throat? It's so hard to listen to him talk when he's all gurgly in the throat.

  • Studio Semantics says:

    They want to impeach Trump for NON-crime. While at the same time, This Pamela Karlan said this. "It is not real democracy. It is not a mature democracy. If the party in power uses the criminal process to go after its enemies." This is purest hypocrisy in action. 1:57:50

  • A very well scripted sophomore legal drama. I really almost forgot all these actors have a vendetta against President Trump for having the unmitigated audacity to defeat Hillary Clinton.

  • 💥💥💥There will be no impeachment!!
    💥💥Oooh, My Goodnessss, It is past time for Hillary Clinton to go to jail!! The Corrupt Democrats and Republicans are doomed under Trump's presidency!! The Democrat and Republican Swamp-Rats, Swamp CockRoaches are jumping ship!! No more crooked government paid to play!! It is time to go back to the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights!! **President Donald Trump the Great White Hope of America!!**
    How many corrupt lying Democrats does it take to impeach a Republican president?!! 😁😂🤣
    ***American Born Black Men For President Donald Trump!!***

  • Well Mr. Cline, I got to watch the hearings and i didn't think for a second that this was a re-run yesterday, and I resent you making that statement of nonsense, the American people are a smart people and apparently you are not watching the hearings and derilict in your duty..

  • Mr. Chabot, "common sense" would say that we need to hear from Bolton, Pompeo, Pence–the people Trump is fighting in court that they won't talk, pressuring not to talk, & God's knows what else he is saying/doing that keeps them silent–the same thing that made Sen. Graham go from a decent guy, seeing Trump clearly as he really is, to somebody we don't even recognize anymore, covering for Trump no matter what he says or does that is illegal, immoral, or in any way wrong.

  • Think Dems are out to get Trump? Read this…1 year, maybe 5, to put up with this —- person, then there's enough solid evidence from the Mueller investigation that 500+ Federal lawyers, judges, etc. said they would take the case. As well as years of committing crimes. He'd likely go to jail once out of office. I'd rather see the criminal go to jail than impeached. However, when he's does something so obviously against our Constitution & matter-of-factly says so on tv, then you need to stand behind our Constitution & do the right thing. When you hire an idiot to do a job he's not qualified for, you're gonna have problems.

  • Pamela Karlan knows all about being barren. Pam is infertile , she cant have children . She is a barren old lesbian which explains why she is so bitter & twisted .

  • Frans van Schaijik says:

    I’ve only one question for the Republicans: why is your President continiously obstructing justice, withholding his staff from hearings, refuses to release his tax documents if he has nothing criminal to hide? It’s time that a country which regurarely calls itself the ‘Leader of the World’ starts cleaning up its own house, since you won’t be that leader for long with such a doubtful leader of your nation. If the present way of dealing with this shameful situation is your example to the rest of the world to show how democracy works, I guess lesser countries prefer to transfer their country into a democracy. So come back to reality and your moral values and impeach this guy. Greetings from the Netherlands!

  • I do not think Congress had to wait on the legislative branch when it is clear in the constitution that it is the house's job to investigate and impeach and it is the executive braches duty to cooperate to prove innocence.

  • Hada Merryweather says:

    Constiuents who are pro impeachment should call their Republican representatives offices and tell them their days in office are numbered!

  • Lowering prescription drugs huh? Trump supports Health insurance competition…aka driving up costs of prescription drugs… Its funny how the Reps keep saying they need to focus on other things, yea the things that the president keeps messing up with HACK policies and beliefs… Figure it out people…Seriously!

  • Mr. Collins…. Do you NOT see that there is a PROBLEM that the President is NOT complying with the Subpeonas for DOCUMENTS and WILL NOT let the WHITE HOUSE and STATE DEPT. employees testify before your committee? Trump says he will do it in the Senate! What does that really say about yourself and your republican counterparts in this committee??? SERIOUSLY?? WHAT WILL YOU DO ABOUT THAT????!!! Also, DO YOU NOT SEE A PROBLEM WITH RUDY GULIANI MEDDLING IN ELECTED OFFICIAL BUSINESS AND BI-PARTISAN FOREIGN POLICY?!!!! WHY IS HE CALLING ALL OVER THE WHITE HOUSE WITH IMPUNITY??? And the PRESIDENT SAYS HE DOES NOT KNOW WHAT RUDY IS DOING???? If that is the Case, then this is GROSS NEGLIGENCE by our COMMANDER IN CHIEF and HE SHOULD BE FIRED!!! HOLY MOLY DUDE GET WITH THE PROGRAM!!!

  • Shawn Pendleton says:

    Man it was fun wasting time watching this Mickey Mouse factory Jesus Christ. Nah it’s fine no one actually saw or witnessed anything. Oh well let’s convict him.

  • These three stooges aka law professors are an insult to their profession and a disgrace to the law schools they are teaching for manufacturing grounds for impeachment (e.g. bribery and abuse of power) of POTUS for requesting (NOT DEMANDING) the newly elected president of Ukraine to look into corrupt practices and criminality that some government officials in Ukraine and in the US might have committed during the previous administrations of both the Ukraine and the US. This was done under the Treaty Agreement between the US and Ukraine (signed by former Pres. Bill Clinton) to cooperate in investigating crimes (which includes corruption) committed in the US or in Ukraine. POTUS is the Top Enforcer of our laws in this country. As such, he can order the investigation of any crime committed or possibly committed especially by powerful people in this country. And Pres. Trump DID NOT OFFER MONEY to encourage Pres. Zelensky to look into Pres. Trump's concerns. READ THE OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT OF THE CALL. The abuse of power that I can see here is the Democrats in Congress OVER-REACHING into the functions of the Executive Branch of our government in trying to question every move that Pres. Trump has been making for our national security: be it in building a border wall, banning immigration from Muslim countries where terrorism is rampant, setting up policies to contain the influx of caravans of illegal immigrants coming from Central America, dealing with foreign leaders like Kim Jong Un, Pres. Erdogan, Pres. Putin, etc. The Democrats, in perpetuating this political Clown Show, failed again miserably in gaining the support of the American people in impeaching this president, who has been the most EFFECTIVE, PRODUCTIVE, RESULTS ORIENTED AND PATRIOTIC PRESIDENT in modern political history in this country.

  • When a reported $40 billion in aid to Ukraine could not be totally accounted for and when the EU has been hesitant to prop up their financial aid to Ukraine, it was prudent for Pres. Trump to have thought very carefully and required that the newly elected government in Ukraine was properly vetted in terms of their firm commitment on implementing transparency and investigating and rooting out corruption in government, which they ran on during the election. Any delay in releasing the $400 million of taxpayers’ money in military and other aid to Ukraine, until this vetting procedure was completed, was just warranted and justified. Remember, Ukraine is one of the most corrupt countries in the world. Pres. Trump is very much aware that the aid money was entrusted to him by Congress (as representatives of the people) to be spent prudently and appropriately and not allowed to go into the pockets of corrupt government officials here and abroad. Many millions, billions, and even trillions of US taxpayers’ money have already been reported as "unaccounted for". So it has become one of the top-most agenda of Pres. Trump to properly address and get resolved accordingly. Remember, it is the duty of POTUS to enforce our laws, and that includes rooting out corruption in government. That is why Pres. Trump issued that Executive Order on December 21, 2017 to address just that, as well as other human rights violations. This was also in keeping with his promise to DRAIN THE SWAMP IN WASHINGTON D.C.

  • Ok, so President Donald Trump would 'benefit from' investigate Joe Biden? If that is the case the next question must be: who would benefit from that Joe Biden would NOT be investigated?
    Another important question is also exactly 'what' was it in Joe Bidens doings that would increase President Trumps chance to be re-elected, because that is what they keep saying 'he did it for personal reasons, for to be re-elected'.

  • I can't wait to see the movie version of this. It has to be a comedy because Trump is hilariously stupid and doesn't even realize how wrong he is and Alec Baldwin should play him.

  • Republicans never have a straight forward reply its always rambling, he did it and said he did it but they are hoping that Americans are dumb enough to ignore his actual words we all heard trump himself say

  • If this were Obama or Hilary this same person pretending nothing happened would be hollering impeachment. Yes we hate Trump we can't stand him and there are many reasons why not to like him. He is an idiot, narcissistic, loud, he embarrasses the US, he is racist, he only makes moves on things that can directly benefit him and his allies. He takes credit for Obama results and at the same time trying to erase the fact we ever had a black president, I find it funny that the only former president he seems to be interested in discrediting is the black one. Only because he is intimidated by him, everything about President Obama is better than Trump and the only way to build his ego is to discredit people who poss a threat. This is not just about the party the man was a crook before he became president and nothing has changed other than his boldness, because he now believes that being in the office allows him to do anything good or bad. Even if we weren't using the Constitution as a map, his behavior is just wrong in so many ways.

  • His entry into office itself was a crime like something out of the movies. We finally got a president of the color, and trump and those like him were mad so Russia used the dumbest candidate that would be their employee, Russia assisted in his election. He lost the popular vote largely and he is going to go down as the most hated President and the most embarrassing President in history.

  • Republicans cut off anyone who doesn't give the answer they want to hear. He should not have been in office in the first place.

  • They have been investigating him since he got in office, they just needed to get all the votes and public support. Trump is the one fighting the whole way. If he is so innocent why is he so scared to allow the investigation to go.

  • So we should believe Lawyers?Lawyers who have no ethics over our president who was elected fairly. First Mueller report Fails now impeachment the reality is these people can not accept the choice of the American people. Sour Grapes Democat crybabies

  • A Foreign born half black man who lied about being a mush slum gets a pass a lying lesbian cheats bernie sanders and murders people but attack a White Christian man? Satanism vs Christianity

  • These Democrat Egotists are so deluded they think Trump NEEDED help to beat Biden? If they would recognize the turn out at his rallies but the Media lied to them and they believed no one came to see Trump. The Dems don't recognize that the White Christian Majority beat the Lesbian abortionist and that Trump knew he didn't need help beating the weakling Joe Biden

  • So if we all watch a guy rob a bank and we testify to that fact, what they are saying is he would be innocent if there is no hard evidence even if thousands of people testify that we all saw him do it. That is not evidence enough? That doesn't even sound right. If that is the case why do you have witnesses at all?

  • We have a right to be mad because we as people voted for one person and the"electoral college" whoever they are, chose someone else. I strongly believe that if the shoes were on the other foot it would be the same outcome.

  • Even if Biden and his son were guilty that's not the president's job to investigate, he should have turned that concern into the FBI and let them find out. But just like always he wants to defame those who oppose him and throw those who can possibly make him look guilty under the bus.

  • They are saying that he only committed a small crime, he is only a little bit wrong not enough to impeach. This is crazy. A little bit wrong is still wrong

  • Nadler starts to fall asleep during this fake impeachment hearing. That's a KODAK MOMENT recorded in HISTORY. Everything the Dems ran on in 2018 and provide NOTHING. We have peace, jobs, and prosperity booming in our great country. For you are driven and blinded by hate. No wonder why you’re miserable unhappy individuals, but you are proud socialist to the end and that's all the matters to you!

  • Whether there was pressure on Ukraine or not, the president is not to go on television and ask China to do what Ukraine had yet to do at his request. It was requested to look into Biden, Trump's words, doesn't matter if no pressure but there obviously was, otherwise the aid wouldn't have been held, considering how much effort it would be to have it blockaded after already being allocated.

  • Hey lady Leslie there is no disconnect. Not all Americans are dumb. Matter of fact we can critically think. We understand Trump's tactics like saying Russia I hope you can find those Clinton emails and Urkraine if you announce Biden is being investigated. We know what these words can produce. Like Trump says he has words blah blah blah

  • Great. they are going to investigate the impeachment process!!??? To make sure theres no corruption!!! Excuse me its the REASON FOR the impeachment, IS FOR CORRUPTION!!! give me a break!!


  • You just go ahead and vote for a draft dodging self centered spoil rotten brat that doesn't care about you or anyone but himself. He is nothing but the biggest joke I have ever seen. He is a disgrace and the other countries are just laughing there butts off. But go ahead defend a hater. He has more blood on his hands than you think. I will not vote for anyone who can pay someone off and cries like a baby when things don't go his way. By the way ask him why he hasn't paid federal taxes over a decade. I wonder if his money is in US bank. Not. Go ahead all you suckers. I guess like I said defend a draft dodger not once but 5x.

  • the three legal experts who wanted impeachment are a bunch of frauds .
    hear say was their reason ? crazy. and not one could state any evidence in the Schiff report.? this is a sham all the way.

  • Trent Stapleton says:

    Some of the counsel questions were always directed at the three democratic professors and not the single conservative prof…. there is some biasis within the inquiry.

  • Rainbows and Sunshine says:

    It’s the PEOPLE that voted majority Democrat for Congress. Which clearly shows the PEOPLE have lost faith in the Trump administration and the republicans!

  • moderatingmoderation says:

    The way democrats repeat something like a spell to make it true is really transparent they just want statements on camera and on a transcript to prove their point yet shows how pointless their effort is because they don't have any proof of anything just a narrative and people who went and gave their opinion validating the Democrats opinion but still no real facts and I don't even like the orange man

  • they could not have picked a more biased panel of experts..except Turley……this Pamela woman is surely biased make remark about presidents son Baron…why did republicans allow such a group of democrats be on panel? are there no republican professors in USA

  • Wow there’s actual clowns in this comment section. Let’s blindly impeach someone with NO EVIDENCE LOL, let’s not be fair and assume guilty.

    THERE. 👏🏻 is NO 👏🏻 EVIDENCE. Hello?!?

  • I’ll say this loud, if you don’t have PROOF and especially for Democrats… or evidence, stfu. Cause if there’s legit proof, I’ll absolutely see the reason on impeachment. Other than that, stfu. You’re defending ppl YOU DONT EVEN KNOW. I defend because I SEE NO PROOF.

  • DormantIdeas NIQ says:

    Rep Doug Collins (GA) is just one of the rats, cover up the CRIME at all cost, with a PHCKNG lame ramble of BS. wtf! LIAR LIAR LIAR!
