No Kangaroo Court: Trump’s Refusal To Cooperate With Congress Constitutes Obstruction


WELCOME TO THE “LATE SHOW.” I AM YOUR HOST, STEPHEN COLBERT. THINGS AREN’T GOING WELL FOR
DONALD TRUMP TODAY. HALF OF CONGRESS ABSOLUTELY
HATES HIM, AND THE DEMOCRATS AREN’T FOND OF HIM, EITHER.( LAUGHTER )
I’LL TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT IN TONIGHT’S “DON AND THE GIANT
IMPEACH.”>>I DON’T LIKE TO BE THE
SUCKER.>>Stephen: NOW A LOT OF
PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING UP TOW THIS POINT, PEOPLE HAVE BEEN
MUSING PUBLICLY, “WHEN IS THE CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS COMING?”
WELL, MARK YOUR CALENDAR, TATTOO IT ON YOUR FOREHEAD, AND FLIP
OFF YOUR BOSS, BECAUSE IT’S HERE. THIS AFTERNOON, THE WHITE HOUSE
DELIVERED ON THEIR PREVIOUS OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE WITH AN
OFFICIAL LETTER TELLING THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES THAT
TRUMP WILL NOT COOPERATE WITH THEIR IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY. YES. ( BOOING )
DON’T GET HIM WRONG. DON’T GET HIM WRONG. TRUMP WOULD LIKE TO HELP WITH
THEIR INQUIRY INTO HIS CONVERSATION WITH UKRAINE BUT,
TRAGICALLY, HE HAS PHONE SPURS.( LAUGHTER )
THE WHITE HOUSE–( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THE WHITE HOUSE– THE WHITE HOUSE MADE THE
ANNOUNCEMENT IN AN OFFICIALLY BITCHY EIGHT-PAGE LETTER TO
CONGRESS, WRITING, “GIVEN THAT YOUR INQUIRY LACKS ANY
LEGITIMATE CONSTITUTIONAL FOUNDATION, ANY PRETENSE OF
FAIRNESS, OR EVEN THE MOST ELEMENTARY DUE PROCESS
PROTECTIONS, THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH CANNOT BE EXPECTED TO
PARTICIPATE IN IT.” WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT. YOU CAN’T JUST NOT PARTICIPATE
IN YOUR OWN IMPEACHMENT.( AS JUDGE )
“SIR, YOU ARE CHARGED WITH ASSAULT AND BATTERY. HOW DO YOU PLEAD?”
( AS DEFENDENT )
“UH… PASS?”
( LAUGHTER )
“CAN I BUY A VOWEL? I WOULD LIKE TO…” THE LETTER IS FULL OF ABSOLUTELY
BONKERS ARGUMENTS, TELLING THE DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP, “YOU HAVE
DENIED THE PRESIDENT THE RIGHT TO CROSS-EXAMINE WITNESSES.” THE WITNESS IS TRUMP’S
INCRIMINATING PHONE TRANSCRIPT, WHICH HE RELEASED. IF HE WANTED TO, HE COULD
CROSS-EXAMINE HIMSELF. “WHERE WAS I ON THE NIGHT OF THE
PHONE CALL? “I WAS ON THE PHONE!”
“AH-HA! WELL, LET ME ASK YOU THIS, IF
THAT’S THE CASE, DID YOU GET ANY DIRT ON JOE BIDEN?( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE )
NOW, THE LETTER– SAME LETTER–
( APPLAUSE )
THE LETTER WHINES ON, “THE
PRESIDENT CANNOT ALLOW YOUR CONSTITUTIONALLY ILLEGITIMATE
PROCEEDINGS TO DISTRACT HIM AND THOSE IN THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH
FROM THEIR WORK ON BEHALF OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THE PRESIDENT HAS A COUNTRY TO
LEAD.” YES. AND IT’S UKRAINE. HE’S LEADING THEM STRAIGHT INTO
PUTIN’S ARMS. COME TO PAPA. THIS LETTER CAME TO THE HOUSE,
JUST HOURS AFTER THE HOUSE WAS ALL SET TO HEAR TESTIMONY FROM
AMBASSADOR TO THE EUROPEAN UNION, GORDON SONDLAND, SEEN
HERE REALIZING, “I’M GOING TO JAIL FOR THAT GUY?”
HOUSE DEMOCRATS WANT TO ASK SONDLAND ABOUT A SERIES OF TEXTS
HE SENT TO THE FORMER AMBASSADOR TO UKRAINE, WHICH REVEALED THAT
TRUMP PUT PRESSURE ON THE UKRAINIANS TO INVESTIGATE JOE
BIDEN. BUT SEW’S LAWYERS LEARNED THE
ADMINISTRATION WOULDN’T LET THE AMBASSADOR TESTIFY, AFTER THE
STATE DEPARTMENT LEFT A VOICE MAIL LAST NIGHT AT TELPH: 30
A.M. FIRST OFF, STATE DEPARTMENT,
JUST TEXT. NOBODY WANTS TO LISTEN TO VOICE
MAIL. ALSO, ANYBODY WHO CALLS THAT
LATE ONLY ONE ONE THING: “HI. HEY, GORDON, IT’S ME. IT’S ME, UNDER SECRETARY FOR
TRADE NEGOTIATIONS. I WAS JUST CALLING BECAUSE I WAS
THINKING HOW MUCH I WANT YOU NOT TO TESTIFY TOMORROW. GORDON. GORDON. WHAT ARE YOU NOT WEARING?”
NOTICE, ACCORDING TO HOUSE INTELLIGENCE CHAIRMAN ADAM
SCHIFF, SONDLAND’S TESTIMONY IS NOT THE ONLY THING THE WHITE
HOUSE IS BLOCKING.>>WE ARE ALSO AWARE THAT THE
AMBASSADOR HAS TEXT MESSAGES OR EMAILS ON A PERSONAL DEVICE. THE STATE DEPARTMENT IS
WITHHOLDING THOSE MESSAGES AS WELL. THE FAILURE TO PRODUCE THESE
DOCUMENTS WE CONSIDER YET ADDITIONAL STRONG EVIDENCE OF
OBSTRUCTION OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL FUNCTIONS OF
CONGRESS.>>Stephen: AND OBSTRUCTION OF
AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY IS ITSELF GROUNDS FOR IMPEACHMENT. THIS WHOLE THING IS LIKE THAT
M.C. ESCHER PRINT: HANDS CUFFING THEMSELVES. BUT TRUMP, TRUMP– THEY LOVE
ESHER JOKES. THEY LOVE… BUT TRUMP INSISTS THAT HE HAS
NOTHING WRONG, NOTHING TO HIDE, TWEETING:
“I WOULD LOVE TO SEND AMBASSADOR SONDLAND, A REALLY GOOD MAN AND
GREAT AMERICAN, TO TESTIFY. BUT, UNFORTUNATELY, HE WOULD BE
TESTIFYING BEFORE A TOTALLY COMPROMISED KANGAROO COURT.” FIRST,UN THIS IS CONGRESS AND
NOT A COURT, RIGHT? SECOND, YOU ALSO KNOW THAT THERE
ARE NO ACTUAL KANGAROOS. THERE’S ALSO NO KOALA BAILIFF,
NO DINGO JUDGE, THE GAVEL’S NOT A BOOMARANG, AND
THE JURY IS NOT ALL CROCODILES DUNDEE.( LAUGHTER )
I ASK– I ASK BECAUSE THE WHOLE KANGAROO METAPHOR, THIS THEME
HAS BEEN POPULAR AMONG REPUBLICANS. TAKE FLORIDA REPRESENTATIVE AND
STAR OF FRAT BABY” MATT GAETZ.>>WHAT WE SEE IN THIS
IMPEACHMENT IS A KANGAROO COURT, AND CHAIRMAN SCHIFF IS ACTING
LIKE A MALICIOUS CAPTAIN KANGAROO.>>Stephen: (AS GAETZ)
“CHAIRMAN SCHIFF IS A MALICIOUS CAPTAIN KANGAROO. TRUMP’S BEING RAILROADED BY THE
TERRIFYING THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE.( LAUGHTER )
THIS WHOLE THING IS A LOAD OF HOWDY DOODY, AND IT’S BROUGHT TO
YOU BY THE LETTERS ‘F’ AND ‘U.'”( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
CONGRESS– NO, I’M MAD! NO, I’M STILL IN CHARACTER AS
MATT GAETZ!>>Jon: PUT IT DOWN!>>Stephen: CONGRESS STILL
WANTS TO HEAR FROM THE ORIGINAL WHISTLEBLOWER WHO STARTED THIS
WHOLE THING. AND THEY’RE TAKING EVERY
PRECAUTION. IN FACT, HOUSE DEMOCRATS ARE
CONSIDERING MASKING THE IDENTITY OF THE WHISTLEBLOWER FROM
TRUMP’S G.O.P. ALLIES IN CONGRESS. HOLD ON. THE WHISTLEBLOWER IS DEFENDING
DEMOCRACY AND GETS TO WEAR A MASK. IS IT THIS GUY?( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THANK YOU, CAP! I DON’T KNOW WHO IT IS. I DON’T KNOW WHO IT IS. THE DEMOCRATS ARE ALSO
CONSIDERING HAVING THE WHISTLEBLOWER ALTER HIS VOICE,
POSSIBLY WITH MODIFICATION TECHNOLOGY. “POSSIBLY WITH MODIFICATION
TECHNOLOGY.” WHAT OTHER WAY WOULD THEY
POSSIBLY DO IT? “PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BETRAYED
OUR NATION’S CORE IDEALS AND TURNED HIS BACK ON ALL THAT
WE STAND FOR! HE MUST BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE
BEFORE DEMOCRACY ERODES BENEATH OUR FEET. I SAY THIS NOT JUST AS A PATRIOT
BUT AS A MEMBER OF THE ♪ LOLLIPOP GUILD
THE HOLLY POP GUILD ♪ THE LOLLIPOP GUILD
♪ I REPRESENT THE INSPECTOR GENERAL
♪ AND WE’D LIKE TO GO AND DRAG YOUR ASS TO JAIL ♪
OH, THAT’S GOOD. THAT’S A HIGH. THAT’S A HIGH.>>Jon: GET IT ALL IN. ♪ LOVING YOU IS EASY BECAUSE
YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL ♪ THANK YOU.( APPLAUSE )

  1. 30 years from now history students will be watching this old video with Stephen's helium voice in an attempt to see how society was at this point in time. It's a fact that makes me happy.

  2. Please my fellow Americans read this article. "Beyond Reason: Mental Retardation: An Overview." It's Trump! It explains everything about him. Why he can't read. Why he doesn't understand what morals are. How a lot of retarded people look as normal as you and me. And please someone if you know anyone whose on Mr. Colbert's staff send them this article so they can show it to Mr. Colbert. It's why Putin put him in office. He hates America so he did this to us. Put a retarded man in the most important job in our country. Putin spits on us every day when Trump does his bidding. And now he's threatened our ex-Ambassador to the Ukraine! She due to testify tomorrow and he implies she's not going to make it. I'm really frightened for her. 🙁 Songs

  3. Can the "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" tune please be tuned down in volume? It is so loud compared to the actual show. Like this comment if you agree!

  4. Trump is so worried about Biden that he’s committing crime after crime when he should be worried about Bernie, Warren, and Yang🤣.

  5. "Democracy" was onlyh when the LIVING THINGS educated the preachers and leaders. When the preachers and leaders began educating children then those all became flag waving, bible thumping DICTATORSHIPS needing armies of soldiers and police enforcing their LIES on Life.

  6. Steven THE HAS BEEN COMEDIAN now just a talking Hillary sht stain on America losers😂don't Hate MAKE AMERICA GREAT.
    GET NECK UP CHECK UP TODAY.

  7. 5:19 That's not what a kangaroo court is. A kangaroo court is mean, quick and ends only one way for the person being "tried." The technical definition is "a court that ignores recognized standards of law or justice, and often carries little or no official standing in the territory within which it resides. THE TERM MAY ALSO APPLY TO A COURT HELD BY A LEGITIMATE JUDICIAL AUTHORITY WHO INTENTIONALLY DISREGARDS THE COURT’S LEGAL OR ETHICAL OBLIGATIONS." So, you calling it a kangaroo court, is like shooting yourself in the foot, which for you is pretty dicey given that it always seems to be lodged in your mouth.

  8. Trump knows that the impeachment inquiry is a witch hunt, just like all the others the dumb-o-crats have pulled and I agree with Trump that he does not need to give them any damn thing! The dumb-o-crats are crooked as hell and they want power and corruption and they will do anything to get it!

  9. This Colbert is a total simpleton. He is neither funny, smart nor interesting. How do such dorks become famous? Well, they are supported by the unimaginative brainwashed SJWs of America!

  10. Trumpdumb is a whole kingdom of crooks and ignorant buffoons with no moral fortitude or ability to think straight. Trump's greed and lack of character and understanding of the world, his white supremacist Turbo Captialist philosophy is wrecking everything including the ability to move forward on the dire EMERGENCY of CLIMATE CRISIS now nearing CATASTROPHE for the young. Trump is Putin's, Robert Mercer's, and Netenyahu's puppet, and Stephen harps only on Putin. Talk about insanely rich multibillionaire, white supremacist Robert Mercer who hired Steve Bannon to run Trump's campaign and who hired Cambridge Analytico to lie about Hillary all over FaceBook. Mark Zuck's empire is a horror of falsities and fake news right alongside of truths. Hard for the ignorant to know which is which. Love Stephen's humor, but he should get a load of Robert Mercer, White Supremacist owner of Brietbart!!!! Sit down with you nuts and wine and your wonderful wife and watch the documentary film TRUMPING DEMOCRACY!

  11. 90 PERCENT OF THE MEDIA WE SEE AND LISTEN TO IS OWNED BY 6 CORPORATIONS, AND BEHIND THAT, A FEW VERY  RICH AND NASTY INDIVIDUALS WITH A GLOBALIST AGENDA , CONTROL THE NARRATIVE, TELL THE PEOPLE HOW TO THINK, FEEL, WEAR , WHAT TO EAT AND DRINK!!!!!!!!!!!! WAKE UP, IF YOU WANT THE TRUTH IN THIS WORLD, YOU HAVE TO SEARCH FOR IT. A WORD OF ADVICE, FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL, GEORGE SOROS

  12. Trump is a Big example of Spoiled/Bully Big Boy.. and totally no idea what is Constitutions.. and what is a reality..

  13. Stephen Miller wrote that letter they sent to Ms Speaker, that is the way he talks, I can just see him saying those things. …and is being brought to by the letters, F and U, hilarious – the whole monologue.

  14. Im pretty sure Donald never heard the term Kangaroo Court until Sean Hannity called him at home and told him about it.
    I'm also sure Donald doesnt actually understand what it is but that never stops him.

  15. I never knew you could sound so pissed off and condescendingly threatening while inhaling helium. That made me laugh like a crazed jackal.🤣

  16. Wow. Ive had this show on for 10 minutes. Never watched it before… what b.c. a waste of time. Is he supposed to be funny?

  17. TRUMP WON. HE WILL NOT BE IMPEACHED. HE WILL GET REELECTED. AND THE IGNORANCE OF MOST YOU WILL MAKE IT REALITY. 😁💗✌

  18. So, does this mean anyone who is subpoenaed can decide not to show up? Or does this mean everything that is happening in Washington is just a show because laws are meaningless? I am not sure which is worse the obstruction of Trump and his gang or the rest of the people in Washington who keep discussing his obvious crimes. Getting a lot of mixed messages here?

  19. hes not getting impeached. republicans let clinton slide so democrats "owe" republicans a get out of impeachment free card..

    were gettin played by these peice of shet political parties. our government is dead! we cant progress with them in office regardless who wins, they block each other.

  20. They could use a big blue helium balloon, so it even saves the work of graphically obstructing the face with a digital blue ball for the cameras.

  21. @DeeJay VEVO Nancy Polisi is next in line for the thrown. I think Pense will be implicated in ‘The Trump cover-up’ and Nancy will take the crown.

  22. Land of the free my ass you cant do anything with out getting in trouble my law for something … cross the street in the wrong place ticket get in a fight go to jail driving around just for the hell of it get put on a list for suspicious behavior this is all the governing parties doing this, smoke weed go to jail or ticked depending on where you are. Then you got these idiot of media always showing the bad things never anything good and fucking idiot people think that it's an issue when it's not its fueled by stupidity ……

  23. So Hillary's using her get out of jail free card AGAIN. Hopefully Trump wipes out most of the corruption in Washington by 2024 the Deep state lefty Demonrats mainly

  24. Donald wants! (scratch that!) Orders? all American citizens ! to see it his way? or else? go to his own version? of the Russian 'Black Dolphin you too go! journalists /social media critical of his own dictatorship approach at US Politics ! and much more? ' think being a family member denouncing his own half brother? waiting for him to leave their own country & being 'ambushed ' by a none lethal way ? /powder >>> or being lured to your own Embassy? with a promise to give a visa to his own girlfriend and murdered and hacked into pieces ? yes ! the 45th loves it ! and we quote: "let the Kurds take care ?of themselves they were never around for Us in world war two?" this is an actual quote from this Moron.

  25. let me here first and foremost apologize on behalf of all the munchkins guild! and for that matter also of Colbert's portrait of them being compared in any way or form to the now Orange Mush/Swamp king!…..

  26. I remember someone that had obvious polluting metals going into the aquifer and he just didn’t leave them on the property. …..I can’t believe that he got away with it but at that time the EPA had no teeth. …..seems like this scenario……

  27. Stephen, we are all waiting for your comments/jokes/skit about the China's NBA backlash. Or your CBS daddy told you to #ShutUpAndHost??

  28. Since when did Drumpf cooperate with anyone?

    Actual Republicans can't get anywhere w/ this lying braggart trash unless they're lick-licks like him when Putin's nearby.

  29. LOL Captain America wearing the Puerto Rican flag since his Inception!

    They say Puerto Ricans are not American, then why is our flag on Captain America???

  30. I and millions of honest people, look forward to the arrests and convictions of all of these Demon rat, deep state Liars, Pedophiles and all of you elite can go to hell with them! TIMES UPPP! HALLELUJAH!

  31. It's so invigorating to be awake and aware of these Shills like Colbert, who work so desperately to keep the masses asleep! Except it's not working! We all see this Demon for who he really is! Back to hell Colbert!
