  • Ronald Reagan looked straight into the cameras and said "This is MY fault, I'm responsible" ... meh ... thank you for the CLEAR explanation on the impeachment process ... there's a precept in our legal system that prosecutors are not allowed to pursue a case if they don't think they have a chance to win ... we just don't prosecute people willy-nilly ... this is the main argument against impeachment, there's no way the Senate will remove The Donald from office ... the House is wasting it's time trying ... time most people think would be better spent doing things like stopping the 130 deaths today from opiate overdoses ... the other main reason to not impeach is that if Democrats do manage to remove The Donald, they give the 2020 election to Mike Pence ... landslide victory ... (as a center-leaning liberal, I would jump at the chance to vote for Mike Pence, I like Indiana's style of conservatism .. it would do our country good to get some upper Midwest practical leadership) ... I understand Mr. Oliver's concern about getting the information out into the general public ... and that's why the Presidential campaign starts 18 months before the election ... Democrats can spend their own money educating the public on all the The Donald's character flaws, and attempting to obstruct justice is a bad one, no doubt ... instead they're using tax-payer dollars to hold useless hearings, dollars sent to them to do more important things; like write better laws on immigration, fine tune the ACA, control FBI/NSA/CIA abuses of power, and eliminating income tax liabilities for construction workers (yes, I am, good guess) ... _We the People_ will have the final say come November 2020 ... and let's elect better Congressmen and Senators this time ... okay? ... folks who will work on appropriation bills instead of these insane continuing resolutions, c'mon man, that's no way to run a country ...

  • John love this show and this was a really good message. I lean toward impeachment because I feel like that puts the onus on the Republicans to do their job in front of a national audience.

  • This video takes on a whole new meaning now. I watched the Watergate hearings and compared to what Trump has done, that we even know about, anybody else would be impeached. If you don't agree, remember that there will be another Democrat president. Then what are going to do?

  • First of all, as a 30 year old, she stands for nothing I agree with. Secondly, she is right. Most people don't have a clue how it works... Also, when the Republicans get leaks it's interference and when Democrats do it's front page news. That's called me being on the left and still being absolutely again their bullshit.

  • 15:15 is perhaps one of the most disturbing things I have seen from this degenerate. The gross misconduct is there. The corruption and self serving is there. The attempts to coordinate with a hostile foreign power to win the election is there. The obstruction of justice is there. The orange shitpile has committed impeachable offenses. Period. As for the issue of it not bring supported by the public, TOUGH SHIT! The US Constitution exists in part to prevent certain things from being up to the public; from being up to whatever the majority wants. Impeachment is clearly outlined in this document, and when it is warranted.

  • Sorry, but it's not obstruction of justice IF he did fire Mueller (which he DID NOT), because the president can rightfully fire any of his subordinates...by the constitution. So if your feelings are hurt, they are still no legal grounds for impeachment. But none of that happened, so moot point anyway!

  • The future if Democrats vote to impeach goes something like this. Trump before impeachment proceedings. "They couldn't get me with their Russia conspiracy, as I've done nothing wrong. The Mueller report exonerated me. Now they're scraping the bottom of the barrel, desperate to keep me from doing my job. The public doesn't want impeachment. Democrats clearly don't care about doing their jobs, as the public elected them to do. Mark my words - I will be exonerated." Trump after impeachment fails in the Senate: "Now I've been exonerated twice. Let's stop this foolishness. Clearly the Democrats are obsessed. I just want to get back to work for the national good, without Congress constantly interfering with my ability to work for the people. All these other investigations are garbage too - how many times do I have to show that I've done nothing wrong ?" Those messages will resonate. Trump will tie in the 15 other ongoing investigations, in the House and by law enforcement across the country, with the failed impeachment. He'll paint himself as a victim and it'll work. Democrats should not defy the will of the public who elected them in 2018. Or they risk strengthening Trump's hand immeasurably. If ever there was a time for pragmatic politics, it is now. The focus should be on removing Trump. A second term Trump would be so destructive as to do untold damage to the nation. A third Trump justice. The circuit courts stacked with Trump allies. A war with Iran to boost the economy, markers tumbling, trade wars, 10 percent unemployment nationwide. We can't let that happen. If he wins impeach after the election. If we already know impeachment will fail, and help Trump politically, WHY would we want to do that ?

  • At this point I'm afraid even many 4-year-olds KNOW what impeachment really is. No hope for getting it to pass Moscow-owned Senate or Moscow Mitch, get it, but still, it shows to people someone is holding the country to a legal and moral standard. It is very worrying that the formal impeachment hasn't started yet.

  • As much as I would love to see him impeached that would only remove him from office if successful then you'd still have to do the criminal proceedings. Best thing to do is build a case for the next year and a half and ram that list of charges right up his fat fucking ass. If we try to impeach now and it's not successful we will only create a martyr which might help him. It fits his fake news narrative. Not to mention the next 3 people in line would be just as bad, Pence, rand Paul, Orin hatch

  • So what's the obstruction of justice? As far as I know Mueller was not fired and instead was given unlimited resources to carry out the investigation. Here your saying that Trump talking about firing Mueller is the same as firing Mueller and that since it's the same that's obstruction. The problem I run into is that Mueller wasnt fired and instead wasted money for 2 years with an investigation that went no where. Your gonna need a stronger case than hear say over something that didnt manifest in reality for impeachment.

And as one who's not american, could someone please tell me what makes his crime so different from all other murders that's being committed litterly every day? For God's sake, in 2017 over 16 000 murders was committed solely in the US! Where I live, there has only been about 100 murders every year for the past 10 years. In comparison to the number of population, the US is having 5 times the more homicides every year.

According to international LAW, if there's a firefight and member of my team gets shot in the shoulder and the taliban terrorist gets shot in the stomach, I am obliged to treat the taliban fighter first due to greater urgency. That is the law 100%, ratified also by USA. But give me a break, life doesn't work that way.

  • i hate trump but i kinda have to agree with him at 17:51... do both. if a foreign power provides intel, listen to it and pass it on to the FBI. I mean... what are you gonna do? be like "hold on, don't tell me now, tell me in a month" to give time for the FBI to set something up? they're going to be like "never mind", because that is suspicious AF. just because the foreign powers have something to gain doesn't mean its not true or that you're going to lose something by listening. its another piece of data that you should take, and analyze with a large grain of salt, and report to the authorities for them to do the same. Not talking about propaganda here, just about passing intel, which is something that most people aren't going to have to worry about.

  • Trump obviously got a problem when it comes to following laws and stick to things he can and can't do as a president. This goes from big issues like obstructing justice as mentioned in this video. But also to smaller matters like ASAP Rocky being arrested in Sweden. When another country have to tell him things like this "The rule of the law applies to everyone equally and is exercised by an independent judiciary. That’s the way it is in the US, and that’s certainly the way it is in Sweden. Political interference in the process is distinctly off limits! Clear?" or "everyone is equal before the law and that the government neither can nor will try to influence the judicial process.”. Basically saying we're not as corrupt as you and we actually want to follow the laws in our country just like you're supposed to follow the same kind of laws in yours.

  • The House can draw up articles of impeachment but the Senate votes on the charges and you need a 2/3 majority vote to remove from office. They’ll never get that as long as Republicans hold the Senate. Impeachment with no chance for removal will backfire against Democrats, because voters don’t support it and Trump will garner sympathy if he’s impeached.
