Narration is a snoozer

I would honestly expect better journalism from the FT "we dont want Trump to run again" isnt grounds for impeachment. This a joke of a political trial

Removal from American politics is an option under Senate impeachment (removal from office being the Senate's option, and not the Representatives that do the permanent impeaching). So, yes, removing Trump from holding office is grounds for impeachment.

How do you incite a mob when you ask to peacefully walk up to the Capital and protest. Half a dozen senators and congress folks were encouraging the antifa and Bad BLM rioters.

I guess we’ll finally get to see the election fraud evidence we heard so much about. He will get an opportunity to present a defense, right? Seems like the senate is walking right into a potential quagmire if Trump defense team produces evidence.

Is the narrator swallowing a cucumber? His voice so annoying.

If America does not bring Trump to justice: it's an encouragement for any inhabitant of planet Earth to cheat and avoid justice 😫😱😓

Made it to 2:37 before bowing out. The narrator is terrible. Sounds like he’s on downers.

Now we don,t know what is going to happen to Donald Trump. But what we do know is plenty of People loved him and their rights have to be taken into consideration. The New Biden administration will have to put Billions of Dollars into the US economy.

What will come of all this? Well, it'll keep the news talking about Trump so they gotta do it. Other than that nothing will happen. Can anyone pinpoint one concrete thing that Trump can be convicted of doing? Something that would qualify as "beyond a reasonable doubt".

The politicians are corrupt! They talked impeaching him before he was president as well. Before he was even elected in November 2016. The vicious hate from the politicians is just amazing. The media helped thier narrative. Here’s an article they’re talking about impeaching him before he’s even been elected in November 2016

Can you not use professional producers? An inaudible narrator and then run music under him constantly. Schoolboy errors.

The republicans are too scared of the consequences if they vote for his impeachment. Rump has done a great job of intimidating people and has to mob do his bidding. I'm sure he was more upset about not golfing than the 5 deaths that his mob caused.

Why would Biden pardon Trump…….the guy claims the 2020 election was stolen from him, propagated smears on the President and his family, didn’t co-operate with the transition or turn up to his inauguration…..😂😂😂

Trump is finished!
Let's turn the page, let's be generous by forgetting the dark past, let's look to the future with a smile and serenity, respectful of the Constitution and of democracy,
Life is and will be better from now on.
Good times and health for all.
