  • So Democrats are not as strong on Republicans or something because if this was Obama like everyone always say Republicans would of crucified this man on live tv probably every channel with no commercials smh.. The public is already Tired

  • Very sad that Mr Cummins feels he should hold Donald Trump accountable yet not once did he speak up about the Obama Administration doing exactly the same thing.

    He is also not to hold trump accountable but to hold the administration accountable.

    But most people don’t care

  • Osteen Michael says:

    Trump 2020 and there will be no impeachment unless you work with republicans so good luck getting it without a civil war even if its a cold one

  • Tire of flip floppers, Enforce laws on the books says:

    These Democrats are doing everything they can to bring the President down, using every means necessary. They want this so they can look for something to sink their teeth into. It's illegal and they are hiding behind the excuse that they're making sure the IRS is doing their job correctly,. So. ask marine Waters E. Cummings, Nadler, and all of those that are pushing their agenda.

  • Tire of flip floppers, Enforce laws on the books says:

    Rather than work for the American people and help those in need, which would help them in the 3030 elections, they would rather wast time and taxpayers money.

  • Isn’t there anything that can be done when someone is clearly using the legal system just to drag things on? I’d think with the expense of court hearings, there’d be a point where a Judge could just say no more.

  • a witch hunt – started by illegal spying , even if you hate trump this should concern you ! Now this buffoon is looking for a crime , normally you have a crime and then you investigate

  • seems the democrats have lost their balls… all the evidence against trump and his family, and the dems can't even get a fekking piece of paper from the white house.???.. shame on them … get some balls and start indicting and arresting these creeps who won't comply.. then when they start going to jail, then start impeachment proceedings… don't worry about dividing the country, don't you think trump has done that enough already??

  • madeline welsh says:

    The Chairman literally admitted that trumps actions could lead to an end to our democracy and STILL tries to justify not starting impeachment. It's not about getting him out it's about proving that our government follows its own rules for regulating itself. Good god.

  • Impeach! Then when the Republicans in the Senate won't convict, VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE (at least the ones who aren't charged and convicted with obstruction of Justice). R. I. P. GOP

  • Senator Elija Cummings has my respect, but I feel his answers fell short time and time again during these interviews. The question being, how are the Democrats going to effectively respond to and deal with an administration that constantly flaunts norms and the rule of law??? The process is broken, how will you fix it??? Saying you'll continue to follow process feels very hollow.

    At times like this I feel AOC would be able to speak more concretely and actionably. Someone needs to do something and it can't simply be what y'all did last year!! People need to go to Jail for obstructing Congress!! What's with the kid gloves???

  • You did nothin but colluded withr the corrupt!!! And illegal. No you are trying to be the onrs in charg3 and you are not. Your getting paid to collude and obstruct. Investigation is Ovet get on with what we are paying you to do. Badgeting workers and you are walking all over and around the law

  • Wr are not we want you to stop. American people my b8tt quit using us for your dirty work. We do have a d3moxracy back. You were not

  • Elijah Cummings.. America needs more people like you! Keep fighting and pushing forward for what is right. Future generations will thank You!!

  • Terri Civility says:

    If one person has to obey the law, then everyone has to obey the law…including the so-called savvy businessman Trump. The economy isn't doing favors for me. It must be helping the billionaires keep their change in their pockets. Gas prices are creeping up as I type.

    We don't need to have the fear of losing the election in 2020. We need to do what's necessary to send the message that Trump behavior (liar, cheat, scammer, chaos creator) is not tolerated in America for the anyone, let alone the President of the United States! Either we live up to the intentions of the Constitution, or it gets negated and dies. Russia will be happy. Get at it, Congress!

  • Rump needs a boogeyman to run against in 20/20 and if Dems start impeachment hearings that's going to be it, oh poor is me I am being persecuted vote for me so I can get way being a crook and surrounding himself with crooks just like himself.

    1. Typing in all caps doesn’t make your point any more valid.
    2. Calling me unknowledgeable because I do not agree with your opinion is ignorant and misguided.

    You do NOT know the full scope of my thoughts about Democrats vs. Republicans as a whole. My comment ( which I wholeheartedly stand ) was specifically about trump and based on the things that have come directly out of his mouth. You know nothing about the scope of my thoughts on the 2 major parties as a whole (IMO, they are BOTH doing HORRIBLE things to America).
    I do NOT like what trump does, how he behaves, his morals, ethics and willingness to lie and sexually assault women ( as he proudly admitted). That’s just me. You, apparently, find all of that ok, admirable and worthy of emulating. You have every right and are entitled to your opinion, as do I. It doesn’t make you unknowledgeable does it???
    Grow up!

  • Angelica RoseMarie says:

    MSNBC/Hello America!!!
    Within my perspective,
    The response from Congress should be to primarily focus directly on locking up whomever, whenever anyone refuse to appear before Congress.
    Congress must be powerfully assertive and steadfastly follow through on arrest towards whomever that literally refuses to appear upon their legal constitutional request, even if
    A.G. William Barr might have to be the first individual arrested.
    Trump promotes the absurd
    "LOCK HER UP," ridiculous political chant messiness mantras during some of his outrageous nonsensical campaign rallies..
    Congress must utilize their powerful constitutional authority, taking direct action to lock up any
    Trump loyalist who refuse to testify before Congress because President Trump directs or orders them /discourages them not to appear, due to a legitimate legal request from Congress.
    Besides, this president or any future president utilizing his/her executive authority/power to intimidate/discourage/order anyone not to appear before Congress is considered another form of criminally illegal. ….
    Obstruction of Justice.
    I'm sure ,Trump's attorneys,
    at US tax payer expenses has alerted him that he can be investigated for criminal Obstruction of Justice.
    Another political Trump Era Swamp Mess!!!!
    YESSS HONEY YESSS !!
    The fleecing of America continues within our nation within the Trump Era. WOW!!!!!!!

  • one of the kings says:

    It should be illegal fot co gress to get anyones taxes without a reason of criminality…. no xrime no action…. u have no righ and it is uncoustutional.

  • I don't think the Democrats are strong or tough enough to make any headway with impeachment. Nancy is much too scared to move forward or getting paid very well not to move forward with the impeachment prosses.

  • David Goldman says:

    why is this witch still on the air poor little congress lets twist some things that are not even facts biased old man

  • Congressman, Cummins keep your foot on #45 neck.

    The Republicans are some cowardly chumps. Our Democracy is a disgrace and so is #45.

  • Can any of these people just give a straight answer? Mr. Cummings used way more words than necessary to say what he was trying not to say…

  • Pelosci wants to play it safe since she has a new seat to fill career crap holding back the dems impeach him one week from election just do it gtfoh!

  • Dennis Phippen says:

    Trump is hiding money that was made illegal by laundering money through banks another place of business.

  • simon davies says:

    MSNBC more fake biased news funded by the Globalist Elite…….anti-Trump….Pro-Clinton and the New World Order……

  • WE JUST WANT ONE THING & YOU'RE NOT DOING IT! OVER YOUR LIP SERVICE! DONT NEED TO SEE MUELLER REPORT! IMPEACH NOW!!!

  • Barak Ben Dawadah says:

    Donald the Chump Trump Already has The Mark of the Beast and is the son of Satan ! That Fact is Obvious ,especially when it Appears that the Yes men and women that are Strategically Set Up Around him , who will Do Whatever it Takes to Protect the Lies and Deeds of this Joke for a person and so called president . Impeachment Nah ! Trump will Keep gettin away with his so called white privileged Frat Brat ,I can Do whatever I want, Say whatever I want,to whomever I want to Say it to or About,All Except Putin of Course !

  • Marsha Sherman says:

    I'm having a very hard time with the way all the MSNBC anchors keep harping on while not addressing the fact that without the aiding & abetting of the entire Republican Party, Trump would not have been able to get away with half the crap he has been getting away with. There needs to be an outcry from ALL PEOPLE, Democrats & Republicans, to move for impeachment of all those enablers: Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, and the rest of them. For example, the majority of the public were outraged enough to demand an end to support for Saudi Arabia's assault on Yemen. Both houses of congress agreed & sent a bill to Trump to end that outrage. The president vetoed that bill. I need someone to explain why we could not get 2/3 of the Senate to override the veto. We are slowly learning what it's like to have a dictatorship. This Senate is not working for the people, it's working for the president who is working for Russia. Trump actually envies Putin. His goal is to have the power here that Putin has over there.

  • Where were you when Obama administration did worse than this? Shut up, Americans are not as stupid as you think. So out of touch, you allowed Obama to set a presidence now your mad is used against you. #Trump2020 #MAGA

  • It's a strategy to keep the Democrats hyper-focused on irrelevant information. The democrats will still find nothing when they do get those "precious tax returns that will surely get him impeached". 😂🤣

  • Debbie Burns says:

    So..If the Senate decides to vote Trump inocenent it stands ???
    Is that it ? Is there recourse after that ?

  • Every American citizen should sue these people for obstructing the greatest president ever. Wasting taxpayer money in an attempt to overthrow an elected president. That's treason nothing less.

  • Quinton Christian says:

    Its hard to say some white people are racist it looks like all white people are racist because he is still in the white house sad for the u.s.a. Black people need reparations . If your not for black people's reparations your racist.

  • Shelley Ross says:

    IMPEACH HIM! Even if the republicans are already saying they won't find him guilty he will still be put on the stand. That's good enough for me. Watching trump lie and ramble on the stand might be what the world needs to see right now. He's about to put our troops in a war.

  • WTH! Impeachment is a serious thing…. Yes but also are the things that drumpf has been doing!! Pelosi have not seen all the things said n done! Impeachment!

  • Sandie White says:

    All these crooks, the president included, should be held accountable and have to suffer the same punishment you or I would be dealt if we did half the stuff the people in the white house are doing. Executive privilege, my backside! … BREAKING THE LAW IS BREAKING THE LAW – – WHETHER IT IS DONE BY YOU, ME OR THE PEOPLE IN THE WHITE HOUSE. These people obviously grew up thinking the rules didn't apply to them, and were never told "no" to ANYTHING. Where has this country's value system and morality gone.

  • Good job 👍 trump is out of control. His constant non-compliance is ridiculous don't wait for them to not comply stay one step ahead. He's making fools of the house congress and America in front of the world while you scramble to figure out the next step

  • Charlie Scriver says:

    poor babies hahaha the demoCRAPS are so pathetic bottom feeder morons are the laughing stock to our great nation. plain and simple , you are LOSERS dont you ever get tired of crying about everything?? change your diapers and get used to LOSING becuase thats who you are !!!!!! TRUMP 2020 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MAGA

  • Shirley Ann Jones says:

    RED ALERT:A TYRANT IS IN THE OVAL OFFICE… NATIONAL SECURITY HAS BEEN COMPROMISED… CALLING ALL AMERICAN PATRIOTS…GET THIS MAN OUT ….. NOW 😊

  • Sonia Monahan says:

    Just the fact Trump started attacking by tweets Mr Elijah at 4 AM screams anti-social, malignant narcissistic behavior on steroids. The guy is so vicious he can't even sleep. VERY DISTURBING.

  • A Queen Stands Alone says:

    TRUMPS LAWSUIT WILL BE THROWN OUT. HIS TAX RETURNS WILL SHOW MONEY FROM RUSSIAN OLIGARCHS. DO NOT GIVE UP CONGRESS. OUR COUNTRY WAS SOLD FOR A HOTEL IN MOSCOW. HOLD TRUMP & MEMBERS OF CONGRESS COMPLICIT WITH TRUMP ACCOUNTABLE. CHECKS AND BALANCES ARE APART OF OUR CONSTITUTION FOR THIS VERY REASON.

  • Black folks will never "OVERCOME" because of the lack of common sense. Once black folks ✋ stop jumping on every black train that ride by, then and only then WE as black Americans will begin to see the injustice of the failed democrat party. Stop thinking a black man or any man is going to help you. HELP YOURSELF. FIRST TRUST GOD and then BELIEVE YOU DESERVE BETTER. THEIR IS POWER IN OUR $$. THEIR IS POWER IN POSITIVE UNITY. THEIR IS POWER IN OUR VOTE. VOTE FOR A BETTER LIFE. BREAK THE CYCLE OF POVERTY.
    🇺🇸 I SUPPORT

  • 🤓🤓🤓🤓🤓Cummings is finding out who his friends are. Meadows isn't one of them. It is best to have friend that has your back Mr. Cummings. Especially white friends that can help with conditions in Baltimore. Maybe you should have been friends with Jared Kushner, since he is a big slum lord in Baltimore. The trump administration is corrupt, but there's plenty of fault to go around.🤕🤕🤕🤕🤕🤕🤕

  • Paulus Gaius Septimus says:

    What the heck is the matter with this baldy. Just because he is the son of a cotton picker does not give him any moral authority. He says we treat illegal immigrant children by separating children from parents and that is abuse ??? huh ? Go figure. !!

    You commit a crime, you are separated by the police from your family and locked up. I am talking of citizens of the USA. Even if you don't commit a crime, and you are in a family court dispute in a divorce case, you are likely going to lose your children.

    The baldy has been elected a congressman for 12 times and he still can't do anything for Baltimore. ?? That thick skull of his is not letting in light or he is just a corrupt congressman who is only looking out for himself.

  • I am so glad your fake outrage at the DHS secretary has come back and blown up in your face. Couldn't happen to a more deserving and useless POS "representative" TERM LIMITS!!!!
