Trump Holds Televised Cabinet Hearing While Volker And Morrison Testify


( LAUGHTER )
LEADING UP TO TODAY’S TESTIMONY, REPUBLICANS HAD REALLY HIGH
HOPES FOR ONE OF THE AFTERNOON WITNESSES. FORMER U.S. SPECIAL
REPRESENTATIVE FOR UKRAINE AND MAN SPENDING WAY TOO MUCH TIME
ON ONE PART OF THE SEX TALK, KURT VOLKER. ACCORDING TO PREVIOUS WITNESSES,
VOLKER WAS DEEPLY INVOLVED IN THE COMMUNICATION BETWEEN THE
WHITE HOUSE AND UKRAINE, BUT TODAY, VOLKER TESTIFIED THAT HE
WAS KEPT OUT OF THE LOOP. NOT A GREAT SIGN FOR REPUBLICANS
WHEN THEIR KEY WITNESS IS A “GUY WHO’S OUT OF THE LOOP.”( AS LAWYER )
“THE DEFENSE WOULD LIKE TO CALL TO THE STAND A BLIND JANITOR WHO
WAS OFF WORK THE DAY OF THE MURDER.”( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE )
“DID YOU SEE ANYTHING? NO. THANK YOU! THE DEFENSE RESTS! YOU’RE OUT OF ORDER!”
ONCE THE AFTERNOON SESSION STARTED, IT WAS TIME TO SWEAR IN
VOLKER AND FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY COUNSEL ADVISER
TIM MORRISON, AND– OH, MY GOD, WHO LET THAT GIANT
IN?( LAUGHTER )
I’M KIDDING, OBVIOUSLY. WHILE HE IS 7’1″, MR. MORRISON
SWORE IN JUST LIKE ANYBODY ELSE: “I SOLEMNLY SWEAR TO TELL THE
TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH, AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH. SO HELP ME FEE FI FO FUM.”( APPLAUSE )
VOLKER ATTEMPTED TO EXPLAIN WHY HE PREVIOUSLY TESTIFIED THAT
THERE WAS NO CONNECTION BETWEEN MILITARY AID AND INVESTIGATIONS,
WHICH, TURNS OUT, IS NOT TRUE.>>SINCE I GAVE MY TESTIMONY ON
OCTOBER 3rd, A GREAT DEAL OF ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND
PERSPECTIVES HAVE COME TO LIGHT. I’VE LEARNED MANY THINGS THAT I
DID NOT KNOW AT THE TIME.>>Stephen: “FIRST AND FOREMOST,
AMONG THEM, THAT I’M FAR TOO PRETTY TO GO TO JAIL.” AYE LIKE TO– I’D LIKE TO–
VOLKER MADE IT CLEAR HE WASN’T A FAN OF HIS SQUAD’S NICKNAME.>>MUCH HAS BEEN MADE OF THE
TERM “THREE AMIGOS” IN REFERENCE TO SECRETARY PERRY, AMBASSADOR
SONDLAND, AND MYSELF. I’VE NEVER USED THAT TERM AND,
FRANKLY, CRINGE WHEN I HEAR IT( AS VOLKER )
“I CRINGE BECAUSE THOSE GUYS ARE NOT MY AMIGOS. THEY ARE, AT BEST,
LOS ACQUAINTANCES DE WORK.”( LAUGHTER )
NOW, THE DEMOCRATIC LEAD COUNSEL ASKED MORRISON WHAT HE KNEW
ABOUT THE UKRAINIAN ENERGY COMPANY BURISMA, WHICH IS PART
OF THE CONSPIRACY THEORY TRUMP MENTIONED ON THE PHONE.>>AND AFTER SHE INFORMED YOU OF
THIS COMPANY BURISMA, WHAT IF ANYTHING DID YOU DO TO DETERMINE
WHAT THAT WAS?>>AFTER THAT PARTICULAR
HANDOFF MEETING, I PROCEEDED TO LOOK IT UP ON THE INTERNET. I GOOGLED IT.>>Stephen (AS MORRISON):
“AND I LEARNED A LOT OF SHOCKING THINGS ON GOOGLE. DID YOU KNOW THE MALE SEAHORSE
CARRIES THE BABIES? I DID NOT KNOW THAT. IT’S QUITE BEAUTIFUL, REALLY,
IT’S QUITE– IT’S QUITE–>>Jon: OH, MY!>>Stephen: WHILE THE TESTIMONY
WAS GOING ON, TRUMP HELD A TELEVISED CABINET MEETING. IT WAS KICKED OFF BY ENERGY
SECRETARY RICK PERRY, WHO BEGAN WITH A PRAYER FOR THE
PRESIDENT AND FOR THE NATION. LOOK AT WHAT HE’S DOING WITH HIS
HANDS. YOU DON’T SEE THAT VERY OFTEN.( AS PERRY )
“DEAR LORD. OH, BOY. OH, JESUS. JESUS GOD IN HEAVEN. I JUST– OH, LORD IT’S– IT’S–
DEAR LORD, IT’S– NEVER MIND WHO IT IS. I’M PRAYING FOR A FRIEND WHO’S
IN TROUBLE. HE’D– HE’D OFFER THE PRAYERS TO
YOU HIMSELF, BUT FIRST, HE’D LIKE YOU TO DO HIM A FAVOR,
THOUGH.” WE’VE GOT A GREAT SHOW FOR YOU
TONIGHT.

  • Swear, I saw Morrison last week and wondered then exactly HOW tall he is! Knew he was a giant then when he was as tall as the metal detector!

  • I thought Perry was wringing his hands because he forgot the Third Emanation of God.

    "Bless us oh Father, Son and.. uh… What's the third one? I forgot the third one it's… EPA? Naw.. I can't. Sorry. Oops."

  • Just wait how many damning stories come out of the Junk administration when Donald Junk leaves office err dragged out of office.

  • Trump did that to distract from the hearings. Devon Nunes (Republican rep) told Volker and Morrison that he had some bad news for them. The ratings were waaaay down, indicating that no one was interested in hearing them or the impeachment hearings. I believe Trump told him to do that. We know how Trump is about ratings and probably held his cabinet hearing to compete. If more people watched the cabinet hearing, we'll hear about it through Trump's tweets.

  • Can one of the "News" agencies please report on how Schiff was literally caught red handed by Jim Jordan lying about not knowing the identity of the whistle blower. Like, I get Trump did a bad and all, and the Republicans are being kind of stupid about it, but it's not like there isn't any wacky shit going on from the Democrats either. Also, while not exactly pertinent to the Trump impeachment, Hunter Biden being on the board of Burisma is also a definite problem and I'm not a fan of how the democrats are pretending it wasn't. Bunch of fucking hypocrites the lot of them.

  • I cringe when I see politicians use religion as a way to appeal to their base. It reminds me of the hypocritical Pharisees and the Sadducees that lived during Jesus times. What makes me even more nauseous is when they make a spectacle of themselves by offering a prayer. What a bunch of hypocrites!

  • Am I the only one who's stopped watching Colbert because he's all about Trump now? Even Trump with all his scandals does not produce enough jokes for a daily show.

  • Government reps have no business using religiosity to appeal to voters… it's just disgusting and people who can't see through that sham are just feeble minded morons.

  • What's Trump doing with Americans money, when his own fundraising scam was caught lying and stealing….hmm. …keep voting trump dead people and unemployed (who trump makes $ off of)

  • "Oh Lord I am praying for a friend who is in trouble. He'd offer the prayers to you himself but first he would like you to do him a favour" rofl😀

  • "oh Jesus,oh God in Heaven..Dear Lord"~Sounds like what you'd hear coming from me while I'm in the bathroom at my house about an hour after I decided that Church's Chicken would go wonderfully with Taco Bell.

  • TheTaintedWisdom says:

    3:05 – Between the lighting and the hand motions that looks less like a prayer to god, and more like a super-villain wringing his hands in glee that he's about to devour the flesh of the innocent.
    I mean, did Trump cheap out on the electric bill or something?

  • hand-wringing
    the clasping together and squeezing of one's hands, especially when distressed or worried.
    an excessive display of concern or distress.
    3:05 video example

  • the more you talk about trump, the better he feels about himself… havent you figured it out? all publicity is publicity… plus, he serves as an example of how democracy resembles to a double-edged blade…
    it places the people in the position to choose their ruler, if the majority of voters are stupid enough, you got a self dooming prophecy…

    make murica great, fk ye

  • Los Tres Amigos?  And what about Rudolph Giuliani?
    Maybe they were rather The Three Musketeers, and Giuliani was the boasting Gascon.
    Although they acted as if they protected the queen (the USA), but actually they conspired with the cardinal Richelieu (Trump).

  • So separation of Church and State is only a suggestion then? …Well after Googling it I see that it is only a suggestion. That's unfortunate. What archaic times we live in… No disrespect meant. But it does explain a lot.

  • Show Volker fully walking back his Oct 3 testimony. You can feel the Republicans collectively browning their pants as their own witness categorically stated that it was clearly quid pro quo and utterly inappropriate.

  • As long as Lev and Igor funnel Russian mafia $$ and NRA $$ and pharmaceuticals $$ into republicans reelection coffers they will have no reason to protect our elections, constitution, children,and sick peoples who can’t afford life saving drugs

  • Mr.Foxnews sir. I am a super doc in psychology and we have a list of how crazy a person is
    Number one:I met God
    Number two: It’s Everyone else, not me.
    Mr.Foxnews sir you suffer badly from number two. It’s not all the many other news channels sir, it’s you

  • Those are the praying hands of a Trump Cult. Their Lord Trump will be proud. All Hail Lord Trump! Shameful people. It's super disgusting how they brainwash these people. Reminds me of the book I read by Brandon Sanders called Mistborn. Where the Lord Ruler is soothing the masses.😅😅🤓

  • No shit Perry's freaking out. His 1st act on meeting the Ukrainian presidents representatives, was to give them a list of his own political donors as "people you guys should trust in the energy business".

    One of the Perry donors scored a 50 year drilling contract with the Ukraine, from that one little act of corruption by trump's "three amigo" team…

    That's the reason for Perry's resignation at the public breaking of trump's corrupt phone call. He knew all the cards were going to be turned over, and he had better start getting ready to do the "trump flip"….

  • Can we program the internet to hide all impeachment references and just give the final result when it's done? No repugs are going to vote out their pumpkin headed leader, waste of everyone's time.

  • Dear God that cabinet prayer clip. Not a chance in hell any one of them is a committed Christian. It's all for show so their absolutely brain dead base believe it. Revolting.

  • "And, Father, we ask you again to keep this President safe and to give him wisdom. In your most holy name, we pray. Amen."
    –Rick Perry

    Remember when Rick Perry publicly prayed for his god to end the 2011 drought in Texas? It got worse, and about six months went by before any significant amount of rain fell in the state. With Perry's track record, I guess we can rule out Trump being safe or gaining any wisdom for at least six months.

  • Pyroclastic Flow says:

    Deeds of the Democrats Throughout History
    (The Democrats NEVER conveniently "shifted" their ideaologies )

    Democrats were responsible for:
    Andrew Jackson slaughtering Native Americans, owning 100% of the slaves during and prior to Abraham Lincoln's Pride Parade to the South, starting the Fed, getting the US into WWI, starting Income Tax and killing people or putting them in prison for "tax evasion", starting the Korean War (which President Trump ENDED), inventing Jim Crow laws, founding the KKK, nuking two Japanese cities full of men, women, and children, starting the Cold War, fighting the '64 Civil Right Act, starting and perpetuating the Vietnam War, putting the US into massive deficits with China and other countries ripping us off, the drug and child sex trafficking and open border policy, giving Illegal Aliens Welfare, and the present coup attempt by the Democrats.

    Many of us have relatives, friends, associates, or know of someone who has given their lives for our country. It is sad to see wives, brothers, and sisters weeping at gravesites after their mangled loved ones are brought home in a box. It is heartbreaking to watch children lay flowers on their departed Mommy's or Daddy's casket.

    It wasn't just the enemy combatants responsible for this death and misery.

    These endless wars were started and propagated by Democrats and RINOs since the "Progressives" started the Federal Reserve, Income Tax, and got us involved with World War I.

    In addition to all the other evil these Democrats do, one would think that this "Party of Death", the Babykiller Party, would be abandoned after the tremendous toll on the average men, women, and children of this country and of the world.

    The Left mindlessly disregards the lives of babies subjected to atrocities by profit-driven abortion mills. And they say they hate Capitalism.

    So it is no surprise that they also seem to lack concern for the lives of the tens of thousands of the downtrodden people they sent to fight their wars. They still support the very people responsible for these deaths. They support the people who sent their loved ones to war to be slaughtered. What do you expect from people who kill their own babies?

    Examples of Democrat Wars:
    WWI: Wilson
    WWII: FDR
    Korea: Truman (ended by Trump)
    Vietnam: Kennedy/Johnson (ended by Nixon)
    Afghanistan/Iraq: RINO GW Bush (termination in progress by Trump)

    This should be made clear to the current batch of indoctrinated fools: YOU or YOUR LOVED ONE WILL BE SENT TO A FOREIGN COUNTRY TO DIE IN AN ENDLESS WAR BECAUSE OF YOUR LAZINESS, GREED, AND LACK OF STUDYING THE HISTORY OF THE DEGENERATES YOU SUPPORT.

    Keep that in mind next time you complain about President Trump's activities with women in the past or his "racist" endeavor to secure our borders.
    And if you have a relative who died in a war your leaders started, you have no one to blame but YOURSELF.

  • ricky perry should pray for republicans' vindication like that at the roulette table……
    disgusting mental midgets and their hypocrite prayers when the walls close in!

  • I can see why Colberts ratings have dropped. This type of comedy is getting old and is a let down every time the dems try to bring down trump and fail. Senate will acquit impeachment even if it passes the house. Where does this go? How about some house talk on economics or healthcare?

  • As a left-leaning atheist, it makes me lol seeing the religious right tangle themselves in knots trying to defend "the Donald".

    Jesus sure seems to love tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans! 😂
