    I truly fell sorry for those that follow MSNBC and believe that everyday is the day President Trump will be brought down.
    MSNBC is playing you for the fool and has been for 3 years. You sound crazy with your daily conspiracy theories.
    None of them have any credibility to bring any charges against President Trump.
    And his taxes? Come on. You don’t Think the IRS have been going over a billionaires taxes with a fine tooth comb for the past 40 years?

    Try thinking for yourself for a change, instead of being played the fool by MSNBC and CNN.

    Well I recognize the writers are trying to put a comedic spin on this stuff, nothing about this is remotely funny. This is very dangerous and serious stuff. We are watching the unraveling of the most powerful democracy since the dawn of time. As a Canadian, I am truly disturbed, and feel very badly for our friends to the south that want change, but must deal with 1/2 their population who is fine with seeing their country wither away.

    If that's an impeachable offense… Then what was the time when Obama said he would "have more flexibility after the election" to the Russian ambassador.

    Funny… MSNBC didn't give us any fake hysterical monologues about that.

    Still waiting for something solid.

    The only reason Trump will give them this money because it is actually war weapons manufactured in the USA . So that company is getting government money for the equipment .
    And ship out weapons. How much money does this war manufacturing company give back to Trump thru hotels or golf dues.

    After all that, if Trump and the Republicans can spin all these crimes into “there’s nothing to see here” and win the election, I will vote Republican for the rest of my life. I mean, if Democrats can’t win with all this ammunition Trump is giving them daily, they deserve to die as a Party.

    Whats even worse is that the US granted the Ukraine military aid for giving up their own nuclear weapons.
    Trump is risking russia invading Ukraine even further or even more of Europe wich would shift the whole balance of powers big time and that only for his own power.

    Taylor is a smart man. He knows this is illegal and is documenting their knowledge, or attempting to do so.

    LOOK!!! trump asked a foreign government to investigate his political opponent. That is illegal. There does not need to be a "quid pro quo". That is an illusion trumps people are throwing up. The fact that multiple trumpers are involved, creates a "criminal conspiracy".

    So Bill Taylor wants to memorialize his own characterization of this corruption investigation as assistance with a political campaign and this narrative must be accepted before further texting goes forward? Arguable and interesting. Not evidence though. Also, nothing here suggests that Taylor is somehow without bias. The insistence that it must be accepted that he is unbiased based on previous service is without merit. Nowhere was it suggested that Trump asked for fabrication. If Chris had anything on this he should have shared it when he accused Trump of doing so.

    The recipient sees this twisted narrative and does not want to perpetuate it or memorialize it. In what world is that proof of consciousness of guilt? I mean, use it as support for stronger evidence but it does not have the weight Chris Hayes suggests.

    Finally, there is nothing, absolutely nothing wrong with asking for foreign assistance with investigating corruption. I am not naive enough to suggest that there is no grounds whatsoever for this narrative of "assistance with a political campaign" to be pushed but it is a political one and not a legal one. You have Hunter and maybe Joe Biden to thank for graying this area by virtue of Joe's tenure as Vice President and Hunter's avarice.

    Now we have a race by both sides to connect the unconnected dots. Did Joe "directly" help Hunter? Did Trump "unambiguously" go after the Biden's for political reasons exclusively?

    My 2 cents is that there is a "probably" to both motivations but evidence for neither. Therefore, this is just a political foul ball and the batter and pitcher dual should continue. Unfortunately impeachment just delays our game and is just a stupid, careless stunt.

    So, the thinking is, if you commit a crime right out in the open it isn't really a crime? Makes perfect tRump sense, like when he told the crowd at one of his Klan rallies that what they saw, read, and heard wasn't what was really happening. Jeez, people, c'mon!

    Hey I've got a challenge for all the news outlets, and for people in general; Find a different word than literally. It is the most used word in news today besides Quid Pro Quo. Seriously I doubt any of the news groups could pull off a video without saying that word. It's almost become the new "like" when people talk. It's really annoying, and you don't need to say literally for people to get that it actually happened.

    So let's see – The Dems drag in Special Envoy to Ukraine Volker for a private interrogation, salivating that he will "expose" Trump! Like EVERYTHING else they try, it blows up on them! READ the testimony folks, it's online.

    1. Volker says that Ukraine never felt pressured to do anything by Trump.

    2. The Ukrainians said there was not anything inappropriate on the call between Trump and Zelensky.

    3. The Ukranians did not know of the hold on financial aid until a month after the call with Trump.

    4. In fact, the Ukrainians and Trump AGREED that the withholding of financial aid to Ukraine was used as a negotiating tool in order to get other Euro countries to pay more of their fair share to help Ukraine.

    One more point – did you see where even the Washington Post has come out and called Adam Schiff a liar for not admitting that he set this whole thing up with the whistleblower? That the whistleblower – who thanks to the Dems themselves has now been exposed – was a former employee of the Obama administration?

    Nice job Dems. You're getting Trump re-elected. What a joke.

It has been proven again and again how crooked this man has been his entire life. We can no longer let this evil man lead our country, Americans we must stop this insanity before he can lose the support of our allies and people who have look to America for leadership in this crazy world. Please from a sixty seven year old man who thought he had seen the WORST thing,s we could go through. Now is the time to stand together and stop him and his crooked government, God please bless our country we need you now more than ever 🙏😟.

    First, I like Chris like this, he is very natural on the stage. Second, we all need to do five minutes of standup about Trump, I think it would cleanse the soul and would show Bill Maher what a real joke looks like. I'm not being mean, I'm just saying Bill used to be funny before he was just chasing a paycheck and before he started complaining about all the pc people. Could you see Chris just chasing a paycheck? So what is up with Trump (applause) Thank you have a good night! If he didn't get an applause he could pull a Bill swear at the audience and flip them off instead of making his jokes funny.

Remember the polling in 2016 they were all off by 10 to 50 points. Why any one would put any faith in Polling that is so wrong so totally off the facts I will never understand.

    Nicely done, Chris! One remark though. If I was accused of something I did not do, I would also ask 'Who told you that?' That is not a proof to be guilty. There is enough that proves Trump is guilty, even since the '80's, you don't need these incorrect conclusions.
