  1. A legal subpoena you must not ignore. The dems have no legal subpoenas as they have no court backing. To get court backing you need evidence and they HAVE NONE. YOU GO TO A COURT AND IMPEACH. NOT A FAKE LIKE THESE TERRORISTS COMMUNISTS ARE DOING.

  2. The same old BS …. If they don't comply with the subpoenas they will suffer the consequences….REALLY ? What consequences ? That they can go on TV more often and laugh about and claiming that they don't have to comply with the subpoenas….. What a joke.. Any regular person that would decline to obey a subpoena wouldn't get a second chance as soon as he or she don't shows up the arrest warrant will be signed right then and there… Plain and simple…… Enough is enough…..

  3. We have to get rid of this ridiculous One President system of Government and switch to a better, upgraded model.

  4. Let’s give Congress.. guns… let’s see them not get along, then. Lol

  5. Jennifer Brexington, In your suicide letter, you may finally include the name, if you wish. Please write a thoughtful letter. It's for the History Books. Jennifer you'll be a Legend Forever. Just do it. Please do the right thing. You could be great~!

  6. What a monumental disappointment our govt is

  7. WELL IF THEY WERE REAL SUBPOENAS AND NOT JUST LETTERS…… AND IT WAS CONSTITUTIONAL….. AND NOT A DEMOCRAT LIBRAL AND MEDIA ALOT….

    WHAT IS THE PRICE FOR TRYING TO OVER THROW AMERICA AND PRESIDENT DONALD J TRUMP?

    RUSSIAN COLLUSION BULLSHIOT………. FIRST COUP….
    THIS CALL ……. THIS FAKE IMPEACHMENT IS A COUP…..

    MEDIA IS PART OF THEM ….

  8. Russian propaganda ignore this TrumpShit

  9. Why do you play music over the vocals?

  10. I wish to make everyone on here aware that Youhaw "Redrum" is using a word from "The Shining" as his screen name. It is "Murder" spelled backwards. He is an angry clown, and I do not think you are safe engaging with him.

  11. Here's the precedent: Nixon refused to hand over the tapes to the House. It went to the SCOTUS and ruling unanimously required Nixon to hand the tapes over. When they were made public, Republicans bailed on Nixon and he resigned. Nixon was never impeached. SCOTUS must support the House's constitutional duty of executive oversight. House does not have to vote at this stage of the process. Turn around in supreme court was just 3 weeks. House must have the ability to see all related documents and interview all involved people in order to put together articles of impeachment. It is the articles of impeachment which are used as the basis of the trial in the senate. Trump cannot without the necessary information. I'm surprised Alexa didn't bring this up. It's crucial.

  12. Hogwash. By denying due process and acting like a star chamber in secret, congress is on shaky constitutional grounds. Their case would be stronger, if they called a successful vote for the impeachment investigation, but Pelosi will not let it come to floor for fear it will put Democratic members on record. She knows full well that most of the voters are against this nonsense. Bill Maher was incorrect, when he said these subpoenas were like parking tickets, because at least parking tickets can be enforced. These subpoenas have no enforcement recourse at all. More like sheets of toilet paper, they are purely political statements and most of America sees them exactly for what they are.

    As long as the Dems continue to pursue this impeachment fiasco, they strengthen the position of the GOP for 2020. Tulsi Gabbard seems to stand alone among the 2020 Democratic candidates as the only person with the common sense to admit this.

  13. This thing where you make a video of someone talking on speaker phone? Don't do that.

  14. It's funny she's using "the teacher voice"

  15. What a flipping mess. If Trump ever does leave office, these toothless congressional rules need to be rewritten into iron-clad laws. Trump is acting like the executive branch is above the other branches of government. That's the problem here. We are supposed to have 3 coequal branches of government.

  16. "UNMATCHED WISDOM" – "BRILLIANT": Act 12:21-24  upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, & made an oration unto them. the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, not of a man. immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: he was eaten of WORMS, gave up the ghost. But the word of God grew& multiplied.

  17. No laws have been broken. There is no need to comply with a sham investigation.

  18. NBC is miss leading the American people like always

  19. Trump allowing Russia to take over where we were positioned positioned it's a war move act before it's to late and it be like turkey over here

  20. Please stop that annoying background noise.

  21. Corruption. The government is more concerned with protecting Trump than doing their job.

  22. This was a great and very informative report… except for the unnecessary and stupid music that was added

  23. What a bunch of lying panty waste.

  24. Ask the Obama admin officials who ignored congressional subpoenas what happens. Obviously nothing happens

  25. In essence, a coup d'etat

  26. If you're a big shot in DC you can get by with this but Average Joe goes to jail. Executive privilege ? Just another way of saying a criminal can get by with everything

  27. Here is my suggestion: When officials ignore subpoenas, they have lawyers advising them. Those lawyers are advising their clients to break the law. That advice violates the ethics guidelines of the American Bar Association. Those lawyers should be the object of complaints registered with the bar, leading to an investigation and possible disbarment.

  28. CHICANO , LATINO AND HISPANIC AMERICANS FOR TRUMP / PENCE IN 2020 !
