  1. I know I and many peoples that are informed voters are not being heard when they say the people dont want a fair trial with witnesses. I as a voter would never vote for someone who has a life history of criminal behavior. I as a voter would not vote for someone who tries to rig a trial without witnesses. I as a voter would not base my decision on them telling me what I want is not what I am receiving.
    My decision as of now is remove him from office without witnesses. I would rather hear the witnesses and base my decision on their testimony.

  2. It's absolutely last Paradise on that video and you can hear. Giuliani backing him up it's definitely giuliani's voice and they are a little bit. Why is he listening to these morons he has CIA and everything I don't get it. This guy's a buffoon he needs to go

  3. All we need now in this farcical defence presentation is for Trump to sack his lawyers and conduct his own defence. USA, your "leaders" have turned you into an object of worldwide derision.

  4. the president can hire/ and fire any diplomat , NOTHING BURGER if i was in charge that would be one ten million dollar fine for the #6 FAKE NEWS AGENCY a nothing story opposing trump

  5. Trump doesn't know Parnas. So what if there is a 90-minute recording of them in discussion? There was no quid pro quo and the call was perfect. That's why evidence and witnesses aren't needed. Oh, and Bolton is a deep-state leftist – Fox always said that.

  6. Bob Dylan’s words in the song about boxer Rubin "Hurricane" Carter come to mind:
    “Couldn't help but make me feel ashamed to live in a land, where justice is a game.”
    Shame on you Rudy, you used to be a man of integrity, but you have, in effect, sold your soul to the Devil.

  7. Doesn't matter what Americans think, Trump's corruption will continue regardless. Say goodbye to Democracy, and the Constitution. King Trump is here to stay. Putin is one very proud man right about now.

  8. Trump had a right to remove this ugly woman of treachery. CBS is looking like a group of traitors of the US legal people. Get Rudy if you can, go back to 9/11 when he removed the evidence of the Bush cartel.
