      Interesting, the demo pres face the impeachment process and were not convicted. The repub pres left office before the vote. If it goes to the Senate it will be interesting.

    2. Jim Gaines

      "Most people think if you get impeached, you're gone". Your public education dollars at work.

    4. wutzerface77

      Make Impeachment II please

    5. Pat Brennan

      so it's like being sentenced 20 years for murder but you don't have to go to jail. ''time to change the constitution''.

    6. Kevin Monasmith

      That was in June. Now is Oct. 13. Wonder what the Senate sycophants will say when this comes to a vote/trial?

    7. Gino Asci

      how the fuck does any of this bullshit hep us as a the very least, it’s time to cut the government in half. so much wasted tax money there we could replace all the streets in the entire country and feed the poor. all they do is fight among themselves as if it’s a reality show. this is our tax money being flushed down the toilet and they broadcast it like it’s important news. it’s all shit. we need to take all their money away and put them in a trailer park to fight it out. what’s the difference anyway. they’re not helping us as the always claim they will but make things worse so the next donkey can claim to make things great again.....and so on. i vote for a trailer park for former politicians. and a new law that says they can never enter that line of work ever again. children in a school yard get along better than they do. how embarrassing it is for us as a nation in the eyes of the world. no honor, no pride.

    8. Dave Stewart

      ...And You're the sappy asshole water boy for the LibTards. Hilarious. Vote for Creepy Joe....Or Pocahontas You Dip Shit!! TRUMP IN A LANDSLIDE VICTORY 2020 SOY BOY...!!

    9. Louis Tash

      Republican's are traitorous backstabbing punks.

      1. n 242424

        DONALD TRUMP! KAG 2020!

    10. Evenios

      funny how now this is coming full circle.....the key is trump keeps abusing power over and over and over and its about fucking time something is done about it.

    11. Em Jay

      Welp. Impeachment happened last week tonight

    12. Jay Patel

      After how the FBI, Comey and leadership, use info against outsiders, not surprised how Trump is reacting. Cant believe this Obstruction of justice BS is considered for impeachment. It would be nice to have a crime to go with that obstruction. Or even investigations of all parties involved of a specific crime, and not investigating a person and hoping to find a crime. Say what!! Oh outsider going to get us into trouble, better get rid of him quick lol. Hey people, use your brain and decide, dont let the deciders mold your thoughts. Pretty please.

      1. Dundoril

        Obstruction of justice is the crime.

    13. The Universal Pigeon

      And now, this.

    14. Sven Dardzinski

      R.I.P means rest impeached no?

    15. richard byers

      white house will not participate in this unconditional impeachment. well it's happening

    16. Clyde C McElroy

      Trump: if I throw a fit you must acquit

    17. 4GB MEANS 4GB

      LOL, This entire video is a Propaganda peace to brainwash people into thinking a certain way.

    18. Gayle Brown

      Jimmy Dore does it best and funnier

    19. Skip Hoffenflaven

      Dumbest president of some of the dumbest people that have ever populated this nation.

      1. n 242424

        KAG! VOTE DONALD TRUMP 2020!

    20. Samuel Gray

      I love the end where there's talk about accountability....where was that talk about Hillary?

    21. Ira Isaacs

      I love that people think he’s going anywhere lol. Once the investigation opens then Biden will end up with the same fate as Trump. Except Biden won’t still be in office. Go ahead and try to impeach instead of trying to beat him on policy. No wonder he got in the first time and will again.

    22. Sipher Rides

      the term allegedly should be in everything this guy says

    23. emachine556

      is it just me or does this dude look like a muppet? thinking beaker?

    24. Christopher Powers

      So, how much trouble would their be if someone were to say "hold a billion dollars over the head of a country" You should search for Glen Beck and Ukraine. Or Joe Biden and Counsel on Foreign Affairs.

    25. Christopher Powers

      I want to talk to you about the words "So many ways this could go wrong" statement. At the time I am writing this, there are about 121,000 sealed indictments across the country, did you know that? That is quite a lot, even for Trump, but it doesn't seam that Trump's name (ANY TRUMP'S NAME) are on those sealed indictments. But I do know that when Epstein got arrested (then later "died") that number rose from 100,000 to it current 121 thousand. Rumor has it that number will continue to go up as soon as a few more operations are completed. Everyone here can agree that Trump is a con man, but what you fail to realize is that now (if not before) he is wearing a badge, then the con is called a sting. You might want to have a quite word with John Stewart and Bill Maur(sorry spelling)

    26. Jim Carigga

      Came back to watch this video for a refresher, specially after today's latest news and a second whistleblower!

    27. Alhussain Ali

      I think he is saying as a political president candidate, and coming from his background he did not have the common sense to call the FBI in that case. Its kind of like if you are poor and you get a call from Russia saying theres a bag with a million dollars in it in such and such place. you are going to take that bag. Its not reasonable to expect him not to. the context matters.

    28. Sevcrow

      Lets see-Unemployment lowest in years, ISIS is almost gone, everyone's 401K is a lot bigger, China is no longer ripping us off, Building a wall to stop people from coming here-ILLEGALLY-TRUMP 2020!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      1. Lowkeylie

        Except 1) Trump just pulled all foreign aid to our allies in Syria who were key in fighting ISIS meaning a likely resurgence and a strong message that we don’t stand by our allies as a country anymore in a move that even most Republicans oppose 2) Pretty much all financial reports seem to agree that the trade war with China is harming American consumers just as much as it is China and 3) Trump has steadily worked to reduce and restrict all legal means of immigration, which was already a fundamentally broken system that saw most people waiting upwards of twenty years to move through the process. Although he didn’t have any qualms about streamlining it to accommodate his in-laws citizenship. I concede that the unemployment rate is at a low though.

    29. TheAbele992

      TRUMP 2020!!! KAG!!!

    30. Gustavo Medrano

      Republicans wasted alot of obama trump just for the fun of it and to make his presidency hard trump, they always make a big deal everything look at Hillary using private server, ivanka is not only doing the same but making deals all over china but all those sellout corporate Democrats are useless and the only thing they want is kiss Republicans ass and work with them while ignoring and trashing the real progressives Democrats (AOC, Bernie...)

    31. error code 1

      What happened to sending the police out with a warrant for arrest if you don't show up for a subpoena . If it was any of us people in the public, there would be an officer at our door same day

    32. Tim Schultheis

      No one is above the law. This man is unfit for duty as our President.

      I still don’t understand why he would wanna be a president, it looks like a pain in the ass job. He could have just keep on banging supermodels and shit on a golden throne.

      1. Elbar Jones

        And that would not have been a crime!

      1. Salty Shunk

        @ISRAELITE24/7 there was a lot. Again, if you have a good attorney you can get away with anything.

      2. ISRAELITE24/7

        @Salty Shunk seriously what evidence of anykind was there??? He couldn't even steal his own Heisman trophy back cmon man!!!!!

      3. Salty Shunk

        Probably because he actually did it and just had a very good attorney.

    42. leslie caldwell

      The USA Education System is broken. I am a retired professor of history. Freshman students, in large part, cannot write an essay. Moreover, that number of freshman students did not know the definition of an essay. Sadly, graduates across this country are Stupid. (See the dictionary explanation of Stupid.) So, while it may not be the total fault of students, it is an example of the stupidity of the country. And, the USA has a lot of stupid people. (It is not pleasant or funny to write this comment.)

      1. Elbar Jones

        Correct -Uneducated people become stupid as the result of their lack of ability for cognitive thinking. precipitated by not studying, as well as the gutting of our education system, which started under Reagan.

      "Trump is peachy clean" - Everyone in the White House

    45. Dan C

      Don McGahn = Gordon Sondland .... history repeats itself, and Trump once again gets away, only vindicating Republicans who call the failed attempts at impeachment, yet another "hoax." Damn it, I just want the Democrats to shut all the Trump supporters down once and for all. I'm not convinced of the Bidens and Clintons innocence either, but the cult of Trump is seriously unnerving.

    46. McKenzie Vaughn

      I'm dying for an impeachment update. Keep up with Stephen and his Giant Impeach

      Hilarious..! Shit for Brains Schiff.....Has the Ass Hat Biden... Libturds ....Schiffing their pants. TRUMP 2020. You lose Dim Shits....!!

        Why would you support a narcissist? This isn't football, you dumbass.

    48. Joseph Douek

      You should do another impeachment related one now

    49. cameron yogibear

      How's that impeachment going?

    50. Alan Thompson

      Well said Mr Olliver

    51. Vulcan Peace

      As a democrat who doesn't like Trump, I understand him on this one, Imagine if China or Norway, offered Hillary the information to just destroy Trump, and She won because of it....I don't think John Oliver or any of us would be going around saying that's a terrible thing to do and that she should have called the FBI

    52. Chris Ducat

      They might have died a bit early...but at least the impeachment process has finally begun :-)

    53. DJG's Random Ish

      Oh... This is my new favorite episode

    54. TheForlornDreams

      wow, fast forward a few months...

    55. Frederick Drenning

      I hope he remains in the spot light for years and is annoyed so much by repeated questioning that he eventually tries to take his own life but doesn't succeed and then is continually poked and prodded by the media over and over until he finally dies of natural causes but then we have the technological ability to store his consciousness in a computer where he still annoyed by media until the end of days.


      LastWeekTonight is hands down one of the best voices in modern television, talking about global issues in a direct, satirical, and almost frightening way. I do feel bad about how this segment aged too well for the good of Idiot in Chief.

    57. Pande

      This video... watching it in new context is amazing

    58. Trottotrot

      Thank you 11k viewers that actual know law and not hung up on stupid bullshit. If hillary Clinton isnt in jail, how can Trump?

      1. Elbar Jones

        Hillary Clinton NEVER was President, thus couldn't be impeached. Benedict Orangehole, on the other hand......

    59. Jerepasaurus

      I bet John's a Ravenclaw. Coward or not, he's witty, clever, and up front. lol He's also got an incredible work ethic, from what I've read up on him recently. He's an extremely silly yet dedicated man. So much respect.

    60. Ivy Souter

      I feel like before anyone votes they should have to pass a test on current issues. It would be voter suppression and against the constitution but should ignorant people really vote? - a memoir

    61. blubastud

      So, did anyone notice in the article that Mike played in a semi-professional basketball league where they toured the country playing exhibition games dressed as women? Mike's on court persona was named Skaggie Maggie. True story.

    62. Faith Rada

      I really wish more people would listen to Pelosi. She's correct... MANY do not understand what that would bring about. Far better to VOTE THE SOB OUT. That woman in purple who actually thought Trump had been exonerated.. WTF? I rest my case!

      1. Elbar Jones

        Nonsense_ so if a Senator broke the law, we should Vote him out of office? No he should be censured & removed.

    63. kokoro nagomu about the tax returns


      Well now those two men can now rest in peace.

    65. Etypeman

      Trump is above the law ladies and gentlemen. He is seeking immunity from prosecution because he is president. Do we allow this? I will say this... At least Trump realized we are owned by CHINA, while all the pundits in congress were so self-absorbed they never saw the internet FLY PAST BY THEM like a damn bullet. Most people in this country don't know that China has us by the balls. Home depot, Walmart, Lowes, Best Buy, Electronic express, Amazon, you name it, all are stocked for at least three years worth with Chinese products and conservatively it's at least 90% of the products they sell....China OWNES US. Trump realized it only because he HIMSELF ordered products from China...the Trump ties, suits, shirts etc. Most people including the stupid politicians NEVER realized they are not buying anything manufactured In the U.S anymore ...That includes raw materials and textiles....In other words the few companies here (mostly small business and car manufacturers that DO manufacture STILL get the raw materials from China. China uses cheap labor, we can not compete...the U.N has tried stopping the child labor to no avail. What will we do, declare WAR against China? Nor can do...they sailed their war ships not too long ago off the California coast, flexing their muscles, showing defiance...this will not be a "Pearl harbor" repeat, that I can tell you as the Chinese do not have to attack us, it's the other way around. BUT, China's war machine is hidden technology, that includes arsenal of mass destruction, nuclear. THE SOLUTION??? We have to embrace MEXICO, we have no choice at this juncture. The YEN soon will control the markets...Mexico has cheap labor and we need manufacturing...we can make MEXICO wOrk FOR US...Declaring Mexico a state of the U.S will be the way to go...we should overthrow their government and move in, we have the RIGHT to do so as we are dealing with their illegal immigration in the millions here in the U.S... The UN and no country will stop us ...We can utilize Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and make them pay us TAXES for in return giving them a better government and life, helping us a the same time become SELF-SUSTAINED. At least help us get away from China until we can become self-sustained and balance our economy with our work force and do our OWN manufacturing... We need legislation that would require companies to not import or sell more than 25% of their products they sell from China or ANY foreign country...China invaded us...we are indeed DEPENDENT on them. Mexico can not counter our military, we should simply take the country and I bet the Mexican people will be happy that we are cleaning house over there and giving them better living return we will benefit and be able to beat China by us becoming self-sustained. The U.S government should INVEST in local manufacturing, leep selling prices LOW...the anser is not higher taxes, the answer is LOWER COST to the public and government monitoring 24/7...we need DRASTIC action here... The American people are spoiled, accustomed to high wages and certain life-style...THAT has caused our demise. Our economy is in the hands of China. THAT needs to be addressed right away and Mexico is the answer. It would mean NOT building walls but rather open the borders...We can still control who and what comes in and arrest those we see as criminals and drugs...just like Hawaii and Puerto Rico we can take Mexico. .I see no other avenue...each time you buy from ANY of the aforementioned retailers you buy from CHINA... We are the babies and they sell us diapers, albeit not the BEST diapers...THEIR MANUFACTURING and desire to win has caused them to come up with serious technology they are hiding...even the IPAD was stolen from a Chinese company by Steve Jobs...He eventually settled a 60 million dollar lawsuit.... Trump cried wolf over China...opening up a lot of eyes...I have known this for years as I too import products from them...Trump just have no idea how to solve the problem and congress is IGNORANT. -------------------------------------------------------------

    67. Oburos _one

      OMG... dude, I thought you lost all credibility with the "raisins" episode.... but this is your "hold my beer" moment.... NOBODY except the liberals who were already brainwashed believes this shit. We ALL know the only way the dems can beat Trump in 2020 is either voter fraud in record numbers (which would be WAY too obvious) or impeachment. Al Green already admitted it and the rest of the anti-american clowns are scared of it.

      1. Salty Shunk

        @Oburos _one and this is why you are a fucking idiot. I voted independent, but according to your dumb ass, anyone who disagrees with you is automatically wrong and stupid. Get the fuck over yourself.

      2. Oburos _one

        @Salty Shunk Wrong... They have nothing but their own imaginations. You are just a cry baby loser who cant get over the dems lost in 2016... ANY vote for a dem is a vote for treason.

      3. Salty Shunk

        @Oburos _one because impeachment hearings are still going on. Mueller spent an incredibly long time gathering evidence and chances are building a case against Nixon also took a while away from the public eye. The reason that was even quick to begin with was because of Deep Throat and even with that the process took a while and would have most likely lasted a long time if Nixon didn't resign. A vote for Trump is not a vote against "brainwashed libs," as if youre any less gullible. You just don't want to admit that you're wrong because you're a fucking child. In fact, a vote for Trump is a vote for a narcissistic sociopath who does not have the best interests of America at heart, and only cares about being powerful. Vote for another Republican for all I care, but if you support Trump then you are either stupid or evil.

      4. Oburos _one

        @Chandler Wright Its called "finding evidence" and biden bragged openly about getting the prosecutor fired... Your reply is invalid. if the dems have "so" much evidence on the president, Why is he still in office? Watergate lasted a little over a year, its been 3 1/2 and the dems still are standing there with their dicks in their hands. Know the difference? there was real evidence on Nixon...

      5. Chandler Wright

        Okay, you say “liberals are brainwashed” but who is the one who is ignoring the fact Donald Trump, the President of the United States, asked Ukraine to investigate Biden privately, can be inadmissible, but Publicly asking China to investigate? That should set off Warning bells!

    68. blackops2096

      I'm just kind of curious of John has the same opinion hearing now that Hillary Clinton's campaign and the DNC actually did make a deal and pressure the Ukraine government to find dirt on Trump.

      1. Dundoril

        Wonderful... Then Impeach clinton... Oh wait

      2. Elbar Jones
