House Democrats: Evidence Of Trump’s Misconduct Is Overwhelming And Uncontested

WELCOME, ONE AND ALL– THANK YOU, THANK YOU, MAESTRO. WELCOME TO “THE LATE SHOW.” I’M YOUR HOST, STEPHEN COLBERT. IT.


WELCOME, ONE AND ALL– THANK
YOU, THANK YOU, MAESTRO. WELCOME TO “THE LATE SHOW.” I’M YOUR HOST, STEPHEN COLBERT. IT IS AN HISTORIC DAY. AND I THINK WE’LL ALL REMEMBER
WHERE WE WERE: I WAS ON TV, AND YOU WERE WATCHING IT. SO, LET’S GET RIGHT TO TONIGHT’S
“DON AND THE GIANT IMPEACH”>>THERE WAS NO CRIME
WHATSOEVER, NOT EVEN A LITTLE TINY CRIME.>>Stephen: THIS MORNING, NANCY
PELOSI AND THE CHAIRS OF SIX HOUSE COMMITTEES GATHERED IN THE
HOUSE PRESS ROOM, AND THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN,
JERRY NADLER, GOT THE HONOR OF DROPPING THE I-BOMB.>>TODAY, IN SERVICE TO OUR DUTY
TO THE CONSTITUTION AND TO OUR COUNTRY, THE HOUSE COMMITTEE ON
THE JUDICIARY IS INTRODUCING TWO ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT CHARGING
THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, DONALD J. TRUMP, WITH
COMMITTING HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS.>>Stephen: YES, FOR ONLY THE
FOURTH TIME IN AMERICAN HISTORY, ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT WERE
DRAFTED AGAINST A SITTING PRESIDENT. IT’S SOMETHING THAT NO ONE COULD
HAVE PREDICTED.( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
UNTIL TRUMP WAS ELECTED. THE DEMOCRATS PRESENTED TWO
ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT. AND NADLER LAID OUT NUMERO UNO:
>>THE FIRST ARTICLE IS FOR ABUSE OF POWER. IT IS AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE FOR
THE PRESIDENT TO EXERCISE THE POWERS OF HIS PUBLIC OFFICE TO
OBTAIN AN IMPROPER PERSONAL BENEFIT.>>Stephen: I’M SORRY, I
WASN’T LISTENING. WAS THAT AN ARTICLE OF
IMPEACHMENT. I’M SORRY, I NEVER READ THE
ARTICLES. I DO ENJOY THE IMPEACHMENT
CENTERFOLD, THOUGH.( LAUGHTER )
OH, I GOT TO SAY, MISS DEMEANOR’S GOT A PAIR OF HIGH
CRIMES THERE.( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THE JOKE IS IN NO WAY RELATED TO THE CLIP, NOT IN ANY WAY. THE SECOND ARTICLE OF
IMPEACHMENT IS FOR OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS, BECAUSE
TRUMP WOULDN’T LET ANY OF HIS AIDES TESTIFY IN THE
IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY. A LOT OF CRITICS HAVE SAID THAT
DEMOCRATS SHOULD WAIT UNTIL THE COURTS FORCE THESE AIDES TO
TESTIFY, BUT THE CHAIRMAN OF THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE,
ADAM SCHIFF, WASN’T BUYING IT.>>THE ARGUMENT, “WHY DON’T YOU
JUST WAIT?” AMOUNTS TO THIS: “WHY DON’T YOU JUST LET HIM
CHEAT IN ONE MORE ELECTION?” “WHY NOT LET HIM CHEAT JUST ONE
MORE TIME?”>>Stephen: FUN FACT: “WHY NOT
JUST LET HIM CHEAT JUST ONE MORE TIME?” WAS WHAT TRUMP HAD
INSCRIBED ON MELANIA’S WEDDING GIFT. SCHIFF, ALSO– IT’S TRUE. IT’S A TRUE STORY, JON. THAT IS A TRUE STORY. YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK! SCHIFF ALSO SAID THAT HOUSE
DEMOCRATS HAVE A VERY GOOD CASE.>>THE EVIDENCE OF THE
PRESIDENT’S MISCONDUCT IS OVERWHELMING AND UNCONTESTED. AND HOW COULD IT NOT BE WHEN THE
PRESIDENT’S OWN WORDS ON JULY 25th, “I WOULD LIKE YOU TO DO US
A FAVOR, THOUGH,” LAY SO BARE HIS INTENTIONS.>>Stephen: YES, THIS CASE IS SO
SIMPLE, SO BALD FACED, WE AT “THE LATE SHOW” CAME UP WITH
THIS HANDY JINGLE. YOU KNOW IT. YOU LOVE IT. SING IT WITH ME. MAESTRO! ♪ THERE’S JUST ONE THING THAT
YOU NEED TO KNOW ♪ TRUMP SAID, “DO US A FAVOR
THOUGH.” ♪ SING IT THIS CHRISTMAS AROUND
THE FIRE.( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
NOW, IMPEACHING– INTERESTING. VERY INTERESTING. THANK YOU. BEAUTIFUL. BEAUTIFUL. IMPEACHING A PRESIDENT IS ONE OF
THE MOST IMPORTANT AND SOLEMN EVENTS A MEMBER OF THE HOUSE CAN
PARTICIPATE IN. SO, NATURALLY, CHAIRMAN OF THE
HOUSE FOREIGN AFFAIRS COMMITTEE, ELIOT ENGEL AMBLED IN A THIRD OF
THE WAY THROUGH THE PRESS CONFERENCE.( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
TRUMP TWEETED HIS DEFENSE THIS
MORNING: “TO IMPEACH A PRESIDENT WHO HAS
PROVEN THROUGH RESULTS, INCLUDING PRODUCING PERHAPS THE
STRONGEST ECONOMY IN OUR COUNTRY’S HISTORY, TO HAVE ONE
OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL PRESIDENCIES EVER, AND MOST
IMPORTANTLY, WHO HAS DONE NOTHING WRONG IS SHEER POLITICAL
MADNESS!”( AS TRUMP )
“YOU CAN’T IMPEACH ME! THE ECONOMY’S SO GOOD. PLUS, I DON’T ALWAYS DO CRIMINAL
THINGS. SOMETIMES JUST I DO FUN, SILLY
GOOF-UPS, LIKE COVFEFE AND HAMBERDER. YOU’LL MISS THOSE. YOU’LL MISS THOSE, WHO KNOW? THINK TWICE. WHO KNOWS? MAYBE TOMORROW I’LL CALL WORMS
BABY SNAKES.”( LAUGHTER )
FROM HERE, THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE WILL VOTE ON THE
ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT ON ON THURSDAY? ON THURSDAY. THAT VERY NIGHT, THURSDAY NIGHT,
MY GUEST WILL BE CONGRESSMAN ADAM SCHIFF. THAT’S RIGHT. THAT’S RIGHT!( APPLAUSE )
MARK ONE’S CALENDAR, MY FRIENDS. THAT’S HOW IT WORKS. THAT’S HOW AMERICA WORKS. WHEN PEOPLE MAKE AMERICAN
HISTORY, THEY COME ON “THE LATE SHOW” TO PROMOTE IT. HOPEFULLY, HOPEFULLY, HE’LL
BRING A CLIP. TO PROVE HOW WEIRD WASHINGTON
IS, ON THE SAME DAY THEY DRAFTED ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT, HOUSE
DEMOCRATS AND THE WHITE HOUSE MADE A DEAL ON THE U.S.M.C.A. TRADE AGREEMENT. I’M HAPPY TO KNOW OUR GOVERNMENT
STILL WORKS, BUT IT’S KIND OF EMOTIONALLY CONFUSING. IT’S LIKE YOUR PARENTS TELLING
YOU THEY’RE GETTING A DIVORCE WHILE YOU’RE ON SPACE MOUNTAIN.( LAUGHTER )
WAS THIS MY FAULT? WHEEE! WHERE WILL I GO FOR CHRISTMAS? YAAAY!

  1. Where is the evidence of an impeachable crime ? This is hogwash !

    Wish we had a media channel that isn't under the control of the deep state , so much bias for the best president this country has ever had .
    And you all will be awake soon to the sick , inhumane crimes so many trusted politicians, celebrities, and elites have committed . Its going to be biblical . WWG1WGA ? ?????????????
    Critical thinking eliminates emotional nonsense.

    Impeachment = emotional nonsense.

  2. I just wanna know why nobody, except people like me, are not asking for proof of what Democrats have done that is so good. Lower rent? Been saying that for 10+ years. Lower college costs? Been saying that since my mom and dad were in college, 40 years ago mind you. Better healthcare? How's that working out for you supporters? I see promises with little to no results. While Trump does what Clinton, Bush Jr and Obama couldn't do. Bring American companies back home. Which in case you can't figure out, creates jobs. This entire impeachment is told to be "upholding the Constitution." And that's coming from someone who shoved an unconstitutional tax down the throats of Americans.

  3. Impeachment is great!! We need more people like (Who is this guy?).. Stephen Colbert, who? OK this guy has his own political show…NO… its a comedy show? Umm ok…has he not seen these fools in Congress? …NO? Not much of a comedy show if he doesn't show these fools in Congress slobbering and eating chicken. I mean its a goldmine of humor which he isn't being paid to do i'm guessing.

  4. Maybe it’s time for the public to step up and start marching on Washington. The spineless republicans won’t do or say anything that would contradict this buffoon until they see the whites of our eyes! That’s what shook up congress when Nixon was going to be impeached.

  5. Democrats on the house judiciary got their ass kicked at every turn today and Colbert is celebrating the disintegration of Trump. Remember this name, Ihor Kolomyskyi. Democrats have a very big problem on their hands.

  6. 4th time in US history articles of impeachment were drawn for a president. 1st time it was done without a crime being committed.

  7. This will always be remembered as the senate who phuked America. Because those cowards in the current senate roll call don't care what happens to anyone other than themselves. Not taking bets on this missed-abortion. They will not vote to convict. Doing the right thing is always so tiring, you know? In between tying up needed legislation, lunch, and voting to acquit the cheeto in chief, there's just no time available. If your state rep/senator hangs the American people out to dry, don't let them get away with it. Vote them out when they're up for re-election. Time to clean house, OUR HOUSE from these lying self-motivated criminals. Let's take back our house. DUMP TRUMP.

  8. "…it's something that no one could have predicted." <—you ALMOST got the delivery Stephen but just couldn't stick the end without laughing lol. Good try though!

  9. Trump overwhelmingly win by a landslide 2020,because the American people realize n recognize that the demorat  libturds done lost their deranged psychotic puny minds hihihihihi

  10. I have seen this headline for a long time now and they still think they will be able to take down trump. Belligerent fools. Thanks for securing trump 2020

  11. No one talking about how a Saudi national soldier training in Florida did a mass shooting and trump defended Saudi Arabia because he has a dozen businesses in Saudi and billions of dollars invested in a weapons deal with them. If this isnt corruption I dont know what is. But instead as the nation that fought an illegal war against Iraq and held no one accountable, goes after trump because he wanted dirt on sleepy joe. What the hell is going on???

  12. Nancy Pelosi's net worth is something like one hundred million dollars. How does a civil servant make that much money? Corruption! She, and people like her know that Trump is coming after them to "clean up the swamp". That's why they are scared enough to make this kind of desperate maneuver. Eventually, it will backfire on them big time. That's why Trump says bring it on! Wait and see.

  13. It just hit me that it’s a real possibility that my further grandchildren could learn about the impeachment of the 45th president in school and I could tell them about it. It’s crazy to think that what’s now just current events will be major historical events just decades from now

  14. In my layperson's mind the "because" after the word "though" seals it. "I would like you to do us a favor though "because" …. He even justified asking for the favor.

  15. Ha ha Trump spinning this as impeachment lite. It's either impeachment or it isn't, you don't get a lite version. Bribery and obstruction are serious, way more serious than lying about a BJ from your assistant.

  16. ya where is the ecom doing so well? all I see is people out of wor and small business going under, anf the cost to live is going up!

  17. Spoiler alert: Trump isn't going to get impeached. It would have to pass in the Senate, which is Republican majority and there's no way that enough of them will vote yes.

  18. Are people aware that the impeachment will be stopped in the senate, anyway?
    This shitshow is nice and funny and all…it just won't work.

  19. Republicans are like the supporters of Catholic Priests who rape children, they simply do not care and have zero balls to do the right thing!

  20. Stephen Colbert, friend of Epstein, with his artificially trending videos. Telling you how to think, vote and behave through a milquetoast simulation of a thing we used to have called comedy.

    Trump did nothing impeachable, and this is nothing but petulant Hollywood babies terrified that all their dirty secrets will become known to the public.

    Dem candidates are crazy, so just this once vote for Trump, and see how many crooks come out of the woodwork to oppose him. What have you got to lose? Knowledge is power

  21. I cant help but think that all the immense pointed sarcasm may not be productive. I understand and appreciate satire, and i understand sadly this is about as unbiased as it gets for a national broadcast, but…

    arent we at risk of missing the forest for the trees? americans seem to have a soft spot for a cheap laugh..

    i imagine a dystopian future where the president is elected because the american public want to make fun of someone so intensely that they had to lock someone down for 4 years.

    Colbert you're so funny its scary

  22. you can make all the arguments you want… The GOP will support Trump in the Senate.
    Not that I'm a fan, but it is what it is. A pyrrhic victory at best.

  23. I wonder what the final tab on Trump will be? I bet he's the most expensive President since Presidents began. Every golfing trip would cover the expenses of a small country. He should pay it all back.

  24. I can't believe Melania is still sleeping with Trump, nor -given his age and physical condition- that there would be much point.

  25. Seriously. We may have seemed like we were losing all the battles over the last 4 years, but it is such a relief to my sanity and reality to see that yes, we really do still live in the sane world and it was clear for a long time that he had committed wrong.

  26. cool, so after the repulicunts in the senate refuse to convict him then what stephen you gonna go somewhere and protest???!!!

  27. If America’s vote him in again they only have themselves to blame it’s not about comedy, satire shows or reporting the news it’s his less than honest character at running a country through lies is that what America has become with Trump

  28. Go check out moveon.org and search your zip code for a demonstration near you! It's gonna be the night before the full house vote on the Articles of Impeachment! See ya there! ????

  29. Will it get through the Senate? The republicans see it as political and they do anything and everything to protect this crazy POTUS.. rather than protecting the People of the USA from this maniac…

  30. The trouble is that if you don't impeach Trump when there is concrete evidence of his attempt at bribery and his abuse of the power of his office then you end your democracy.

  31. After watching the impeachment coverage all day today it is clear to me that God in heaven could descend from the clouds on his throne of glory and decree that Donald Trump was guilty of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress and Republicans would tell Him that He has it all wrong. I’m so tired.

  32. Incredible video, i like it to much …. Star part is 1:29. I uploaded first twerk, Plsss check it out and tell what you think ❤ ? ?

  33. The era of the strongest economy in U.S. History happened after the end of WW II when our Government made one of the largest investments ever made in U.S. Society including the G.I. Bill, VA benefits. affordable housing, fully funded Public School, low-cost Community School and State Universities. It has taken over 40 years for Corporate America to "claw-back" that investment and now – U.S. Citizensare burdened by Student Debt. Public Schools are moldering in some neighborhoods and shining in others and the "land of the Free" has the highest incarceration rate in the world. We're #1 Alright. At ignoring our responsibility to vote. It shows.

  34. I believe that anyone who is currently a trump supporter will be voting for him in Nov. IF after all that he has done to show everyone the type of person that he is AND they still support him currently, then there is no changing their minds. None. I also don't think many are on the fence — that there are people who are indifferent about him and neither support nor dislike him. Just like the Republicans said they were going to vote "No" on impeachment BEFORE hearing a shred of testimony and other evidence, voters already know if they'll be voting for Trump or if they'll not be voting for Trump (anyone but him vote). I doubt it actually matters who gets the Dem's nomination. The only thing I hope is that people who are independents like me, don't vote for the Libertarian or Independent candidate because just like 2016, any vote not for Hillary was a vote for Trump. Since the majority of voters don't belong to a political party, for those that do NOT want Trump re-elected, they must realize that the only way to keep him from being re-elected is to vote whoever is the Democrat's nominee regardless of who he or she is. I didn't like Hillary or Trump (but I could tolerate her), and therefore, I voted for Johnson not realizing that instead of a vote against Trump, it became a vote FOR Trump. In my and in several states, if half of the votes for the Libertariain & the Independent had been cast for Hillary instead, Trump would not have won the EC.

    PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU AND ALL VOTERS YOU KNOW ARE FULLY AWARE THAT ANY VOTE THAT IS NOT FOR THE DEMOCRAT IS GOING TO END UP AS A VOTE FOR TRUMP.

  35. Worried about your Adrenochrome connections, yet Stephen? #TheGreatAwakeningIsTheResurrection Red Tsunami!! The U.S. Constitution states that if a president is impeached by the House but not convicted by the Senate, that person's first term is nullified and they are eligible to run for office two more times!!! #Trump2024 BTW you really look bitter when you talk about Trump, a prominent sign of TDS.

  36. uncontested lololololololol and the biden conspiracy has been debunked and bengazi was about a youtube video and fast and furious was just a continuation of bush's program and obama had a scandel free administration and fort hood was work place violence and Trump is caging children the lies never stop

  37. Not one witness has a single shred of concrete evidence… msm BOMBSHELL! Hows that 18 year Afghanistan Lie going. If i recall Pelosi has been speaker twice in that time. Maybe we should focus on the criminals that have resided like cockroaches on the hill decades before orange guy bad walked through the door.

  38. "You know how to make America great again? Tell Donald Trump to go to hell!"
    -Lindsey Graham, 2016, PLEASE KEEP EXPOSING #HypocriteGraham #DitchMoscowMitch

  39. "You know how to make America great again? Tell Donald Trump to go to hell!"
    -Lindsey Graham, 2016, PLEASE KEEP EXPOSING #HypocriteGraham #DitchMoscowMitch

  40. gaetz was stopped fro DUI and we wonder what other substances he abused. he has misused the power of his office and obstructed justice, the only question is when will he be charged? And there is nothing more believable and convincing then having a sociopath, lying criminal tell you he is innocent like the liar in chief.

  41. the economy is NOT great. Stock market is up, and he plays with it to destroy 401ks. That's the only thing that's working. Making food or a living … NO.

  42. WHAT ARE THE CRIMES? WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE? SHOW ME A WITNESS… JUST ONE. NOT ONE OF THE DEMS WITNESSES STATED THEY HAD ANY "ANY" ANY!!!! PROOF, EVIDENCE EVEN A FREAKING PIECE OF PAPER PROVING WRONG DOING. GIVE ME A BREAK…

  43. After watching this, now I kinda want to see them carry out the full House impeachment vote and the Senate trial on Space Mountain. :3

  44. Stephen, when Trump is out of office I am still going to watch your show. Even though I wasn’t much into late night shows before trump I have been exposed to you, to Seth and to some others and have come to love you! So don’t worry after the monster is cleared from under the bed you’ll still get great ratings!

  45. Best news is that the Dems don’t have the votes to remove trump. And No Dem will beat him in 2020… I hear the crying of libs already….
