Sen. Sherrod Brown: Those Who Embolden Trump “Will Not Look Good In History”


WELCOME BACK! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, FOLKS, MY NEXT GUEST IS A SENATOR FROM
OHIO WHOSE LATEST BOOK IS CALLED “DESK 88.” PLEASE WELCOME SENATOR SHERROD
BROWN! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( BAND PLAYING ) ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( BAND PLAYING )>>THANK YOU, FOLKS.>>Stephen: NICE TO MEET YOU. GOOD TO BE HERE.>>Stephen: THANKS FOR COMING
ON. THE NEW BOOK IS CALLED
“DESK 88”, WHICH I ASSUME IS THE DESK YOU SIT AT.>>IT IS.>>Stephen: WE’LL GET TO THAT
IN A MOMENT. THAT’S WHAT’S CALLED A TEASER,
FOLKS. ( LAUGHTER )
BEFORE WE GET TO THAT, IT’S LOOKING LIKELY — I’M NOT
PROGNOSTICATING — BUT IT’S LOOKING NICELY THERE THE WILL BE
SUCCESSFUL IMPEACHMENT VOTE IN THE HOUSE UNLESS SOMETHING CRAZY
HAPPENS AND CHANGES ALL THE DEMOCRATS’ MINDS BECAUSE THEY
HAVE ALL THE VOTESSICS LOOKS LIKE. WHEN IT COMES TO THE SENATE,
WHAT’S THAT GOING TO BE LIKE? A JURY OF 100 PEOPLE SEEMS A
LITTLE EXCESSIVE. TWELVE IS HARD TO WRANGLE. WHO IS GOING TO BE IN CHARGE OF
THE DEMOCRATS?>>WELL, I DON’T THINK ANYBODY’S
IN CHARGE. WE SET — I’M NOT A LAWYER, BUT
MOST OF MY COLLEAGUES ARE. THE IMPEACHMENT, YOU KNOW, IS
LIKE AN INDICTMENT IN A COURT.>>Stephen: YEP. WE SIT AS A 100-PERSON
INJURE. I THINK WE’RE TOLD — I’VE NEVER
BEEN THROUGH THIS AND MOST SENATORS HAVE, I BELIEVE WE’RE
TOLD WE HAVE TO REMAIN SILENT EVERY HOUR OF EVERY DAY UNTIL
THE TRIAL IS OVER.>>Stephen: YOU CAN’T TALK. WHICH IS A CONSTITUTIONAL
CRISIS OF ITS OWN.>>Stephen: YOU CAN’T TALK TO
EACH OTHER OR HAVE PHONES. WHICH WILL BE THE HARDEST?>>MY WIFE SAYS IT’S HARDEST FOR
ME NOT TO TALK FOR THAT LONG. ( LAUGHTER )
BUT WHAT I REALLY HOPE HAPPENS, AND I REALLY ENJOYED YOUR
INTERVIEW WITH SPEAKER PELOSI, SHE IS AS GOOD AS SHE SEEMS ON
TELEVISION, SHE’S ABSOLUTELY THAT GOOD.>>Stephen: SHARP TACK. YEAH, SHE IS THE BEST — AS
MY BOOK POINTS OUT, SHE’S THE BEST LEGISLATIVE LEADER SINCE
LYNDON JOHNSON AND MAYBE MORE. SO I SO TRUST HER TO DO THIS
RIGHT, I EXPECT THE IMPEACHMENT TO HAPPEN. WE WILL HAVE THIS TRIAL AND WHAT
I’M HOPEFUL IS THE HUNDRED SENATORS — JUST LIKE IN A COURT
OF LAW, A DOESN’T LISTEN TO PUBLIC OPINION, A JURY DOESN’T
LISTEN TO PUBLIC OPINION, THE 100 OF US SHOULD BASE THIS ON
THE FACTS AND THE EVIDENCE. I’M HOPEFUL THE REPUBLICANS AND
DEMOCRATS ALIKE TAKE IT THAT SERIOUSLY. THEY DON’T LISTEN TO THEIR MAIL
ON THIS ONE, DON’T GO ON SOCIAL MEDIA, BUT LISTEN TO THE
EVIDENCE, HAS THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES DONE SOMETHING
THAT WE WOULD CLASSIFY AS HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS, AND IF
HE HAS, WE REMOVE HIM.>>Stephen: WOULD YOU
RECOMMEND LIKE IN A TRIAL YOU ALL GET MOVED TO A RAMADA ON THE
EDGE OF TOWN SO YOU CAN’T BE INFLUENCED BY SOCIAL MEDIA?>>I DON’T EVEN HAVE AN ANSWER
TO THAT.>>Stephen: ALL RIGHT. OKAY. YES, BUT I’LL ANSWER FOR YOU. ( LAUGHTER )
YES, YOU SHOULD ALL BE MOVED TO A RAMADA. IN A JURY THERE’S A FOREMAN
WHO’S KEEPING ORDER. WHO IS KEEPING ORDER?>>THE CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE
SUPREME COURT PRESIDES OVER THE TRIAL.>>Stephen: SO JOHN ROBERTS. JOHN ROBERTS WILL COME IN. YOUR QUESTION EARLIER I THOUGHT
WAS WHO IS IN CHARGE SORT OF A BEACH PARTY AND I DON’T THINK IT
WORKS THAT WAY EXACTLY, I’M NOT SURE. BUT THEN THERE WILL BE
IMPEACHMENT. THE PROSECUTORS, SOME MEMBERS OF
THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE OR THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE FROM THE
HOUSE WILL COME, I ASSUME ADAM SCHIFF AND JERRY NADLER AND
OTHERS AND THE PRESIDENT WILL HAVE HIS DEFENDERS.>>Stephen: DO THEY PROSECUTE? WILL SCHIFF BE UP THERE WITH
EVIDENCE?>>SCHIFF AND OTHERS WILL
PRESENT THE EVIDENCE AND TRUMP’S LAWYERS, I DON’T KNOW IF THEY’RE
HOUSE MEMBERS –>>Stephen: RUDY. WE’RE HOPING IT’S RUDY. ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) THIS SHOW HAS A HIGH OPINION OF
AMERICA’S MAYOR.>>Stephen: HE’S GOOD FOR
MATERIAL.>>GIVES YOU A LOT EVERY NIGHT. ( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: MM-HMM. WELL, BACKSTAGE YOU MIGHT SAY,
WHEN THE CAMERAS AREN’T ON AND YOU GUYS ARE JUST TALKING, WE’VE
WORKED ACROSS THE AISLE WITH REPUBLICAN COLLEAGUES — IS IT
ACTUALLY AN AISLE SEPARATING YOU GUYS?>>THERE IS AN AISLE ON THE
SENATE FLOOR. THERE IS, WE CROSS IT ALL THE
TIME TO TALK TO EACH OTHER.>>Stephen: IT’S A
SEMIPERMEABLE MEMBRANE. OKAY. ( LAUGHTER )
WHEN THE CAMERAS ARE NOT ON, YOU TALK TO THEM PRIVATELY, DO THEY
ADMIT THEY DID SOMETHING WRONG?>>YEAH, MOST REPUBLICAN
SENATORS WHEN YOU TALK TO THEM INDIVIDUALLY AND QUIETLY
ACKNOWLEDGE TRUMP IS A RACIST, MISOGYNIST, ACKNOWLEDGE HE HAS
TROUBLE TELLING THE TRUTH, THEY KNOW HE DOES DON’T HIS HOMEWORK,
THEY WONDER ABOUT HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH PUTIN BECAUSE
ALMOST ALL OF TRUMP’S FOREIGN POLICY ACTIONS FRANKLY ARE GOOD
FOR THE RUSSIANS, NOT ALWAYS GOOD FOR US.>>Stephen: INCLUDING
WITHHOLDING AID TO UKRAINE.>>INCLUDE PULLING OUT THE
TROOPS SO THE TURKS ATTACK, THAT WAS GOOD FOR RUSSIA, I.S.I.S. AND IRAN BUT IT WASN’T GOOD FOR
THE U.S. AND IT WASN’T GOOD FOR ISRAEL, CLEARLY. AND REPUBLICAN SENATORS KNOW
THAT BUT THEY –>>Stephen: WHAT ABOUT
SPECIFICALLY LIKE THIS PHONE CALL AND THE IDEA OF ACTUALLY
RECRUITING OR PRESSURING, EXTORTING A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT
TO DO POLITICAL DIRTY FORK WORE HIM? DO THEY TALK ABOUT THAT?>>I HAVEN’T HEARD ANY TALK
ABOUT THAT BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT ONE PUTS THEM IN REAL
TROUBLE IF THEY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT PUBLICLY.>>Stephen: THAT’S THE
OBJECTION.>>YEAH. IT’S PRETTY CLEAR THAT
REPUBLICAN SENATORS, I MEAN THEY’RE NOT GOING TO GO DOWN AS
PROFILES IN COURAGE. IT’S PRETTY CLEAR THAT THEY LIKE
THE TAX CUTS THAT TRUMP GAVE THEM, THEY LIKE THE TAX ON THE
ENVIRONMENT AND LABOR RIGHTS AND THEY LIKE THE YOUNG RIGHT WING
JUDGES AND THEY’RE ALL SCARED OF THEIR PLACE, THEY’RE ALL SCARED
OF A REPUBLICAN PRIMARY FROM A TRUMP SUPPORTER THAT COULD TAKE
THEM OUT, SO THEY HAVE SHOWN — MY BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT 13
YEARS IN THE SENATE IS WATCHING MY REPUBLICAN COLLEAGUES IN THE
SENATE, MANY OF WHOM A NUMBER OF THEM I LIKE PERSONALLY BUT
WATCHING THEM EMBOLDEN THIS PRESIDENT, COVER UP FOR THIS
PRESIDENT, FLEE WHEN A JOURNALIST ASKS THEM QUESTIONS
ABOUT IT AND THEY WILL NOT GOOD IN HISTORY. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: IN 1998, YOU WERE IN CONGRESS AND AT THE TIME YOU
VOTED NOT TO IMPEACH BILL CLINTON BUT WERE IN FAVOR OF A
CENSURE OF BILL CLINTON. WOULD YOU VOTE FOR IMPEACHMENT
OF TRUMP?>>I ABSOLUTELY WOULD.>>Stephen: WHY. HE DID THINGS RICHARD NIXON
NEVER EVEN DID. THIS PRESIDENT ASKED FOR HELP
FROM A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT TO HELP HIMSELF AND HIS OWN
ELECTION. THAT’S COMPLETELY AN IMPEACHABLE
OFFENSE. THAT’S WHY HE SHOULD BE
IMPEACHED. AGAIN, I DON’T THINK ANYBODY
SHOULD MAKE THEIR MIND UP IN THE SENATE UNTIL THEY HEAR THE
EVIDENCE AND THE PRESIDENT’S RESPONSE, BECAUSE WE ARE A JURY,
BUT IF I WERE IN THE HOUSE, I WOULD VOTE TO IMPEACH.>>Stephen: WE HAVE TO TAKE A
BREAK. WE’LL BE BACK WITH THE AUTHOR OF
“DESK 88”, SHERROD SHERKSD EVERYBODY!

  • Conscientious Thinker says:

    Sounds like the republicans like all the things that are bad for the country., they should not be in the legislative branch.

  • Grand Juries must stay behind closed doors.
    If the criminals learn the charges they can fabricate alibis and excuses for each specific evidence.

  • Divergent Evolution says:

    LOL. As if a single American will look good in history. Your legacy is to be labeled as humanities greatest failure for all time.

  • This comment section is what's wrong with US politics. Too many people caring about the cosmetic, who the fuck cares what his voice sounds like as long as what he's saying makes sense?

  • Wow. This guy sounds like 2 different personalities fighting for vocal control, and one of them wants to sound like Hulk Hogan. 😂

  • To know something in private but say the opposite in public is the mark of a coward. We DON'T need cowards running our gov't.
    Stop the corruption & return power to THE PEOPLE!
    Boomers for Bernie!

  • Russia has over a hundred years of practice DIVIDING HUMANITY from itself USING LYING PROPAGANDA to create HOT BUTTON ISSUES ranging from religious cults, and unisex bathrooms to the rights of Preachers, peddlers, politicians, DICTATORS and Unborn MEAT, over the rights of intelligent Human Life.

  • I guess if Rudy acts as 45’s legal counsel, will the proceedings take place at night? You know, that’s when he can leave his casket! I don’t believe Rudy is a day walker.

  • I'm an Ohioan, and I saw Brown speak at a press conference just after the Dayton shooting. From what I recall, he was PISSED, and passionately called for concrete solutions to America's gun crisis, at long last. This man does us proud.

  • This guy spoke well. How many Republican senators have already said that they will Vote NO for removing the President? It’s such a stupid thing to say before you hear any evidence or even know what all of the charges are.

  • The day the US Senate acquits Trump when evidence says guilty and the military and people dont stage a coup against him is the day I from a Third World country would find all Americans the dumbest weakest people on Earth.

  • "They will not look good in history" — the trouble is that they are making sure we HAVE no more history, if things go on as they have so far. Most republicans in the senate should be put against a wall and shot through their head. Bunch of traitors.

  • Tyler تحطيم says:

    I had to cough a few times during this, then shit my pants, then went upstairs to change and fell down and broke my back.

  • They are of course not that stupid to believe he isn't the worst president ever. They know they have to distort the truth because if he goes down he's taking the entire republican party down with him for a very long time.

  • I wish he had run for the Presidency. I have always really liked him. He is like the Columbo of politicians…and who doesn't love Columbo?

  • The interesting thing is that RT TV shines a favourable light on Trump and feels he is being treated badly by the pres. it's good to get some different objectives from other sources, instead of the mainstream U.S media channels. why is ac Communist country trying to put a major capitalist up a pedestal??

  • juries in real trials undergo a voir dire process to ensure objectivity. that will NOT be the case here. a simple vote, totally based on party lines, will occur. very sad for our country. a totally corrupt unfit and despicable person will skate.

  • don the con takes Russian money for years…hires a campaign manager in chahoots with pro-Russian Ukrainians…allows russian meddling in election…wants to build hotel in Moscow….tries to extort info on opponents using Russian agents (lev & igor)….obstructs probe into associations with Russians…moves troops out of Syria which enhances Russian power in mid east….and on and on and on…..

  • Yeah, but what's the shelf life of Impeachment when it's sent to the Senate, now with GOP senators campaigning finances and are being bought??

  • To watch Trump being dumb is a thing but to seing his follower being dumber is revealingly sad and discouraging. One have a government he deserves.

  • Isn't rolling back the EPA (that took decades to establish) protecting our land, our air, our water enough to Impeach? Really, isn't endangering the American people's well being a criminal offense? Denying Climate Change to fill a handful of pockets? Why is this NOT in the constitution- a sitting president cannot endanger the American people! Period!

  • Andrea Robinson says:

    No one ever says he should be impeached for kidnapping and locking up children, at least 6 of whom died and hundreds lost forever. Sometimes "policy" is a high crime.

  • this dude has two totally different voices and i really much prefer the one when he yells that doesn't sound like he's gargling. why do men not clear their throat when they sound like that? my husband does that sometimes…

  • Those who embolden Trump, are half the electoral population of the US. They will go unpunished. They will go anonymous. Their damage to the world will go unmeasured and their ignorant views of reality and facts mostly unchanged. The only two things that will change, should the president lose the election, is his presidency and a few paintings in the White House.
    Nationalism is the new normalcy, again. It will remain like a foul odor long after the world has gotten over its obsession of Trump. We dealt with a lot of things throughout history, but we never truly dealt with nationalism. It was allowed to linger, its values intact, its beliefs and propositions unchallenged. It is only fair that it gets to destroy much of our progress, because we failed to learn from it, while we had decades of institutional and global buildup. The moment someone speaks honestly about this, rather than Trump or his tweets, is the moment things take a pragmatical turn and something can be done.

  • Valentin Salazar says:

    This is going to be an issue! Watch the republicans argue that it was unfair that everyone had made up thier minds prior to the impeachment hearings began!

  • Ganamoney Eccles says:

    Wow,the Republican Senators know Trump is lying ,he is a racist and still support Trump,SHOCKING.Their children are going to be labeled as LIARS .

  • Fauler Perfektionist says:

    "Sen. Sherrod Brown: Those Who Embolden Trump 'Will Not Look Good In History'"
    True. But in the United States, we don't study history anymore, so it doesn't really matter to us. 🤷

  • Fauler Perfektionist says:

    😟 It may seem like kind of a petty point but does this guy normally sound like this or is he in need of a lozenge?

  • 1973 IMPEACH the president by the honey drippers..Download and put it out on social media. Get the message to dough boy, corrupter, liar, bully, racist, nasty adulter. PAB, thank you Crissy Tigen giving the wonderful name to Cheeto in chief the most corrupt of the corruptors..

  • There is no silver lining to P-Dump getting removed because Pence the (Penis) will be taking over and he is also a Huge SackofShit

    NEVERtrump2020💩

  • I am a lifelong Republican, don't think much of many Democrat views/policies. I believe the key point that the GOP is missing is that it is not a battle between Liberals and Conservatives, rather the battle is with people who support the amoral, world class jackass in the White House. The GOP is heading down the path of becoming irreverent which could lead to true chaos. Republicans have to wake up and stop enabling a man who represents so much of what the greatest generation defeated 75 years ago……

  • Cassandra Morrison says:

    The main problem with preachin' to the choir is that everybody just ignores the fact that the Senate ain't singin' along.
    Meaning unless we get the Republicans in the Senate somehow motivated to do what SHOULD be done then all that will happen is an Impeachment Hearing at Taxpayer Expense that will result in a non-Impeachment. (It'll run us around 2 million dollars figuring on the inflation rate since the Impeachment of Bill Clinton was tried back in 1998/99 ((It stretched from December of '98 to February of '99)).
    https://www.gobankingrates.com/making-money/economy/president-donald-trump-impeachment-cost/

    All this basically just "to keep the animals quiet" as the Politicians might term it. If we, as a people, weren't so gullible as to believe this Impeachment Trial might change anything then we'd be out in the streets and demanding change and an end to this corruption and the country would look like the Weather Underground had come out of retirement and that Alan Moore's V for Vendetta was the new Declaration of Independence.
    https://www.britannica.com/topic/Weathermen

    But we aren't doing that. We're content to sit and bitch on-line about how terrible it all is and watch the Impeachment unfold like another miniseries television event and see nothing change and the corruption continue until one might begin to suspect that President Trump has been empowered by the Prince of the Power of the Air with the Voice of the Dragon which is why so many follow him so blindly.

    IF one believed in that stuff, I mean.

  • Nixon resigned because Republican leaders told him that he was going to be impeached and that there were not enough votes in the Senate to save him from removal. Enough Republicans had shame back then, but Trump and McConnell’s utter shamelessness has given today’s Republican politicians cover for being cowards.

  • Future historians will write off the last three years as 'non-canon'. They'll treat it the way James Cameron treats Terminator 3 and George Lucas treats the Star Wars Christmas Special.

  • C Wray you were in Shuen Yuen ? Dang Chris I saw you dancing that was inspiring and really fantastic ! At least you can teach the rest of the criminal people and inmates how to dance ! Conspiracy to obstruct justice ! That’s you Chris Wray ! Obstructing justice ! Don’t be denying it ! I’ll drag you through the mud more more than necessary ! Either way your not going anywhere on my watch ! I’ll go without eating drinking smoking anything – I’m putting you Chris Wray in prison ! That I can guarantee !

  • dmwegnerowicz7554 says:

    There won't be much more history to record, after the three days of darkness. Satan's time is up. Pray the ROSARY, that you may be saved by the Mother of GOD….Wisdom

  • Aiding and abetting too Chris Wray ! Dang you got a lot of problems ahead of you ! Testifying again on cable news in public too ! Sounds like a hoot ! Next time you will pay better attention – well not you personally – obviously your already gonna be in jail but the president ! One by one it’s jumpsuits ! I asked and needed your help years ago – I won’t ever ask again ! Or contact or call or communicate or do Nathan ! 360 days till the election !

  • Wow lol, was anyone else totally not expecting THAT voice from him? That's like the last way I'd have guessed him to sound while he was walking out etc xD

  • no one is "emboldening" trump.. the reverse is true…Trumps presidency has emboldened the bigots all across the country and they're not hiding anymore.. (and at least that means we can tell who they are now….)
