  1. HAHA JUST TELL TRUTH HIMES, YOU DIRTY SWAMP THING.“BRIBERY” TESTED MUCH BETTER THAN “QUID PRO QUO”, W/CONTROL GROUPS YOU CROOKED DEMS PAID!

  2. Coercion – extortion – bribery.
    IMAGINE if Obama had done 1/100th of the crimes and lies Trump does daily.

  3. JimHimes. Moron of the day award loser. Connecticut? Yikes.

  4. The bigger question is ‘why does everything Trump does benefit Putin?’

  5. Joe Biden on quid pro quo A MUST WATCH 3 min video"WAIT FOR IT at 1 min 30 sec https://youtu.be/vCSF3reVr10
    Who is Eric Ciar@mella for $200
    Very Interesting >>> #Epsteincoverup

  6. the only quid pro quo was Joe Biden

  7. it was Joe Biden that forced the president of Ukraine to find the prosecutor investigating his son.

  8. Watching him during impeachment trial. We need another party to replace the scum that the democrats have become. So sad to see the demise of a once proud party. These are real sickos.

  9. THE DEVIOUS DECEITFUL DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO HAVE TO SPLAIN TO US STUPID PEOPLE THAT DON'T UNDERSTAND THEIR OWN HYSTERIA.

  10. Good, get that quid pro quo thing out of here

  11. Thank God this man called out Chuck Todd's weak interviewing.
    I miss Tim Russert! Most of the knuckle head politians currently in office wouldnt have run for their seat if they had to face an interview with Tim Russeet.

  12. Chuck Todd was correctly dressed down for his "both siderism" bs. well done.

  13. This anti American Democratic Coup attempt puke above. Joe Biden is thoroughly corrupt and "Quid Pro Quod" the Ukrainian President on video! Our President can say ANYTHING to ANYONE anytime he wants to. He's our President. No Democratic puke is going to perform a coup attempt. The American people will rise up and destroy the Democratic Party.

  14. The only thing that matters is that Trump will be reelected in 2020 and the House and Senate will both go republican and then we will have trials about Biden and others.

  15. tRUMP committed ‘Extortion’, plain and simple. Extortion, is a crime! Lock him up!!!

  16. 🚨 Trump hating NBC Fake News Chuck Todd and Democrats both are called out for their hypocrisy by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on Sunday blasted Democrats for looking like hypocrites when it comes to the Ukraine saga. According to Paul, Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump for the exact same thing former Vice President Joe Biden did.

    "I think the American people want fairness and I don’t think they’re going to judge fairness when they’re [Democrats] accusing President Trump of the same thing Joe Biden did, threatening the aid if some kind of corruption is not investigated. It seems like everybody, both parties, have been threatening aid if some kind of investigation either doesn’t happen or is ended," Paul explained.

    According to the senator, the situation between Trump and Ukraine and Biden and Ukraine are similar.

    "And so I think really what’s going to happen is people are going to say 'Oh, they’re impeaching President Trump for exactly the same thing Joe Biden did.' He threatened the aid if they didn’t fire someone. Supposedly the president did if they didn’t investigate someone," he explained. "So it sounds exactly like what Joe Biden did. If they weren’t going to impeach Joe Biden they look like hypocrites for not having a word to say about what Joe Biden did.”

    Paul made it very clear, multiple times, that he would have never provided Ukraine with aid because the United States simply doesn't have the money for it.

    "If it were me, I wouldn’t give them the aid because we don’t have the money. We have to borrow the money from China to send it to Ukraine," Paul said. "So I’m against the aid. I think it’s a mistake to do the aid. So I wouldn’t have played any of these games, but I think the American people think it’s unfair to treat Trump under one standard and Joe Biden under a different standard.”

    Democrats have repeatedly said President Trump threatened to withhold military aid unless Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky investigated corruption between then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. While Joe Biden was handling international relations with Ukraine on behalf of the Obama administration, Hunter was being paid $50,000 a month to sit on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, despite having no natural energy experience.

    Trump released the transcript, which showed no quid pro quo took place. And no aid was threatened. Shame on 3 year witch-hunt by sore loser democrats that don’t like outcome of elections. Nice job exposing them for what they are hypocrites.

  17. PATRIOTIC, BEAUTIFUL STATEMENT…" LOL YOU GUYS ARE A JOKE!! TODD GIVE ME A MINUTE…TODD SHUT UP! IS DEMS' PROPAGANDA TIME .

  18. 'We've Got To Get Off This Quid Pro Quo Thing' says Himes. Of course the Dems' want to change the subject and move the goal post for the umpteenth time. Because ''Quid Pro Quo'' never happened. Just the same way all the other false accusations have been made against President Donald J. Trump. All you have to do is read the transcript to see there was no Quid Pro Quo. This week's latest President Donald J. Trump's faux infraction is extortion and obstruction. Why? Because as Himes just explained in this interview. The concept of Quid Pro Quo is just to complicated for you stupid leftist imbeciles to understand. You idiots are so stupid you don't even realize what your own politicians think of you.

  19. I dont think President Trump said “get me the dirt”

  20. Hunter Bidens testimony has nothing to do with Trump asking Ukraine to look into Hunter Biden?

    Am I missing something here?

  21. Extortion: "the practice of obtaining something, especially money, through force or threats."

    Zelensky: I was not pressured to do anything.

    Transcript: no threats or quid pro quo.

    What's the argument here exactly?

  22. Keeping corrupt politicians like Biden out of office is in the nation’s best interest. Good job, President Trump! 🇺🇸

  23. MORE FAKE NEWS THIS IS JUST ANOTHER LOW LIFE SCUM.

  24. Todd should have said, "you know what, you're right". but he moved right on like a politician.

  25. What are the four legal reasons for impeachment?
    “The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors.” Democratic lawmakers keep it simple. Trump (and other Civil Officers) committed Bribery and High Crimes and Misdemeanors. Go with what the constitution gives you.

  26. Chuck is such a Todd…..his both sides gas-lighting, perhaps to have access to republican guests and ratings, is just nauseating. Good on Congressman Hines to call out the hypocrisy of both Paul and Todd. More of this needs to be done by democrats!!!

  27. Chuck Todd is simply not very bright.

  28. The politicians are making this much more complicated than it needs to be. Russia would not exist today except that America was forced into WW2. Russia was next in line for Hitler's war machine to gobble up. That put America and Russia temporarily on the same side. The Soviets jumped back as soon as peace was declared. America and most other major world countries worked to set up organizations where differences could be discussed, because the cost of war was just too high. The first time since WW2 that that peace was broken was Russia's physically claiming part of Ukraine (Crimea). The annual G8 meeting threw out the Russians, and they became the G7. Now, Trump has conveniently ignored 70+ years of animosity between America and Russia. He has openly sought Russian assistance in winning the American Presidential Election by whatever means necessary the first time. He has clearly stated that he will take assistance from wherever it might come in order to be reelected. (Remember, this is the thug that you have learned to pay attention to what he does instead of what he says.) Prior to Trump, all of the G7 had committed to assist Ukraine with military aid. In our behalf, Congress had already approved the release of our portion of these promised funds. Failing to pay my money and yours because he wanted to use it for political leverage was poor judgement at best. That lives were at risk, our international goals were thwarted and our international reputation was trashed was inexcusable. This was not simply his daughter's wedding cake that he refused to pay for after the wedding. This had national security implications for our country. America needs her allies. America deserves a real President.

  29. Very disappointed in Chuck Todd, you let Paul Rand get the better of you, shameful.

  30. QUID PRO QUO does not muddy the waters. For starters:
    — As a POLITICIAN, the act of "quid pro quo" is BRIBERY.
    — As a COMMANDER, the act of "withholding military aid" is AIDING AND ABETTING THE ENEMY.
    — As a PRESIDENT, the act of "being guilty" is ABUSE OF POWER.

  31. the press is owned by Soros eat your trash
