    trump is showing off and trying to get support from the public despite the evidence against trump…Trump is ignoring the calls from his public support of his followers that wanted proof he is innocent but trump defying the invitation to show up but instead the white house complains that trump has no say in the proceedings. trump would rather sing safely from the white house then at the courts. I think it is true if R. Mueller was there to question the president then trump would break and talk under the pressure of it. the lawyers know trump alright and if trump did go, I think trump would crack or twit away.

    i wouldn’t send my lawyers if i were the president either. all Trump’s lawyers either admit to his wrong doings or end up in prison.

    This is a meaningless news report. American democracy has already ended. We will remember the values and leadership you once stood for.

    Trump will NEVER take part. He cannot speak for more than 30 seconds without lying. Besides, he will put forth a tweet storm as a result of watching the tv he says he does not watch. There is a better chance of Mexico paying for the wall than President Trump participating in the hearings. LOL.

    He’d be interrupting and yelling in no time. Not to mention, he has the attention span of a goldfish

    And republicans will be okay with this cause deep down THEY KNOW that Trump did it but they’re hiding behind attacks on the process. It’s like a guy who says he can bench press 10000 pounds but always finds excuses to avoid actually doing it.

    POTUS under oath; commit perjury; face consequences of the act under law. Show goes on? (Or not?) We can stay all tuned for further drama. (And now: a word from your GOP sponsor!)

    Come on, even if Trump sent witnesses to testify on his behalf, all you would hear is, ” On the advice of my lawyer, I take the 5th”…..

    The impeachment hearings are beating a dead horse. The American Republican party together with their propaganda machine and the Russian government has sold America out for money. You are now officially governed by a corrupt, lying group of sycophants that actively abuses women, children, minorities and the environment. The American people stand by and do nothing while their elected officials pilfer.

    It’s only due to current DOJ policy that “Individual 1” isn’t sharing a cell with his convicted partner Cohen.

    The Newsweek firing should be a warning to all CNN reporters that are guilty of the same fake news. But. , Trump will prevail in the end.

    I’m guessing that Trump will fly off to Russia before ever serving a day in jail, where Putin will have lines of bladder filled hookers to satisfy him…..

    There aren’t that many times to be brilliant with a single bold stroke of genius. The White House will miss it — and contrary to Trump’s own instincts. Sure, going to the lion’s den is risky — which is precisely why it’s powerful — if only for effect. And effect is the only card to play right now.

    The treasonous Fake president has been given every possible opportunity to defend himself but guilty cowards don’t have the balls to speak for themselves. He hides and orders everyone not to talk. He also hides evidence and blocks it. The idiots who listen to this traitor go to prison for obeying him.

    You know, @CNN, what the journalistically ethical thing to do is?

    It’s for news organizations to keep their YouTube comments CLOSED! At least until better moderation tools are available.

    Social media analytics tools routinely reveal suspect activity from red-flagged accounts making up the majority of news channel traffic today. Nobody needs that sour nonsense: it’s not journalism, it’s not newsworthy, and you shouldn’t let the sheer volume of it overwhelm and drown out your reporting.

    If someone is telling you comments drive news channel engagement, they are wrong. If over half of what you see here is viewbots talking to botnets talking to synthetic puppet accounts — then maybe a few low-information voters picking up that toxic torch and running with it… then a very, very few real viewers, bewildered by these garbage fires you let rage unabated — then that’s not real engagement. Ethics aside: any ad-buyer with a web analytics team is going to demand a reduction of their bill, too, based on the amount of suspect traffic here, so it makes no financial sense either for you to keep these comments open.

    All you’re doing is handing over your popular platform to well-organized propaganda campaigns, for free, along with inexplicable unfettered access to the viewers you’ve cultivated, also for free. You wouldn’t give free airtime to North Korea State Broadcasting, or even to a domestic competitor, over cable or the airwaves, so it makes zero sense that you’re doing so online.

    Do the right thing and keep these comments closed. Until you come up with moderation strategies like those of other news outlets who keep inappropriate activity from ever reaching publication in the first place — ads for sketchy online pills (or sunglasses, or cryptocurrency), off-topic conspiracy nonsense, fake news, teens or socially challenged adults spewing obscenities for the sake of obscenity, bullying and targeted harassment directed at protected categories, trolls, spam, and indeed propaganda — it’s better to keep the comments entirely closed.

    If those bad actors wants a platform to speak from, the whole Internet is free: let them build their own platform somewhere else, for their fans to flock to.
