  1. Lying seems to be legal on MSNBC as well with the amount of lying MSNBC constantly state as if fact.

  2. By Trump asking Ukraine to do a smear campaign on his political rivals so that he can win the election clearly suggests to me that he is trying to participate in collusion and obstruction. But hey, what else is new?

  3. The Democrats compiled and presented a FORENSIC ANALYSIS. It's what you would expect of the Prosecution in any CREDIBLE case before an Honorable Court (which McConnell's & GOP dominated Senate is most definitely NOT). The highly emotional, reactive presentation by GOP presenters was precisely what you would expect of a Defense Team with no exculpatory evidence to the contrary to present. Avoid the FACTS, focus on DENIALS & EMOTIONS, ATTACK the character of the Prosecution and Witnesses and not very convincingly argued at that. The Defense fell into the EVIDENTIARY DEAD ZONE. Meanwhile, the REAL VILLAIN does not cooperate, attend, deliver sub poenaed documents or witnesses and goes on a twitter rampage vilifying the Prosecution. Quite frankly, a lot of what POTUS45 'Dead Man Walking' says and tweets is highly discriminatory and bordering on racial or sexual profiling. In particular, calling Chairman Schiff 'Shifty' echoes the anti-Jewish propaganda leading up to their persecution. If I was Jewish I would be very worried.

  4. It isn't legal to lie on the internet, on radio, in print, on tv, on cable transmissions or face to face. It just isn't illegal. There is a huge difference.

  5. ARI MELBER said just tonight (January 23 MSNBC) that he believes the House managers have NOT made a case for removing Trump from office. In other words, he sides with the partisans who are shamelessly supporting this president who deserves to be removed from office. The managers HAVE proved this! Tonight, Ari Melber proved that he no longer deserves our respect. He IS a big part of the problem. I will no longer listen to him.

  6. How five members of Joe Biden’s family got rich through his connections

    Joe Biden’s younger brother, James, has been an integral part of the family political machine from the earliest days when he served as finance chair of Joe’s 1972 Senate campaign, and the two have remained quite close. After Joe joined the US Senate, he would bring his brother James along on congressional delegation trips to places like Ireland, Rome and Africa.

    When Joe became vice president, James was a welcomed guest at the White House, securing invitations to such important functions as a state dinner in 2011 and the visit of Pope Francis in 2015. Sometimes, James’ White House visits dovetailed with his overseas business dealings, and his commercial opportunities flourished during his brother’s tenure as vice president.

    Consider the case of HillStone International, a subsidiary of the huge construction management firm Hill International. The president of HillStone International was Kevin Justice, who grew up in Delaware and was a longtime Biden family friend. On Nov. 4, 2010, according to White House visitors’ logs, Justice visited the White House and met with Biden adviser Michele Smith in the Office of the Vice President.

    Less than three weeks later, HillStone announced that James Biden would be joining the firm as an executive vice president. James appeared to have little or no background in housing construction, but that did not seem to matter to HillStone. His bio on the company’s website noted his “40 years of experience dealing with principals in business, political, legal and financial circles across the nation and internationally…”

    James Biden was joining HillStone just as the firm was starting negotiations to win a massive contract in war-torn Iraq. Six months later, the firm announced a contract to build 100,000 homes. It was part of a $35 billion, 500,000-unit project deal won by TRAC Development, a South Korean company. HillStone also received a $22 million US federal government contract to manage a construction project for the State Department.

    David Richter, son of the parent company’s founder, was not shy in explaining HillStone’s success in securing government contracts. It really helps, he told investors at a private meeting, to have “the brother of the vice president as a partner,” according to someone who was there.

    The Iraq project was massive, perhaps the single most lucrative project for the firm ever. In 2012, Charlie Gasparino of Fox Business reported that HillStone officials expected the project to “generate $1.5 billion in revenues over the next three years.” That amounted to more than three times the revenue the company produced in 2011.

    A group of minority partners, including James Biden, stood to split about $735 million. “There’s plenty of money for everyone if this project goes through,” said one company official.

    The deal was all set, but HillStone made a crucial error. In 2013, the firm was forced to back out of the contract because of a series of problems, including a lack of experience by Hill and TRAC Development, its South Korean associate firm. But HillStone continued doing significant contract work in the embattled country, including a six-year contract with the US Army Corps of Engineers.

    James Biden remained with Hill International, which accumulated contracts from the federal government for dozens of projects, including projects in the United States, Puerto Rico, Mozambique and elsewhere.

  7. Why is it illegal for companies to lie to their customers but it is legal for the president, senators, and other government officials to lie to the public?

    Why is it that an employee can be fired for lying to their employer but government officials are allowed to lie to the people they are serving without any legal repercussions?

  8. If Trump was put under oath he would break that oath within the first 2 sentences that he childishly utters.

  9. Shiff oratory shades of Hamilton!G.O.P. suits should lay shingles on YouTube.Couldn't get a jaywalker out of a jam.Honesty breeds its own eloquence.
