  1. Trump is absurd

      Try Trump/Putin Gate……Putin put him in the Oval Office….he knows it….this is his fear….Putin through Trump is instructing Trump
      to weaken our institutions….Putin and the oligarchs financially own him!

  2. KT McFarland corrected a claim she made to the FBI about what she knew during the presidential transition about Russia sanctions after Flynn’s guilty plea in the Russia investigation contradicted her lie.

    In court papers accompanying his plea agreement, federal investigators disclosed that Flynn had coördinated his contacts with Kislyak with an unnamed senior transition official, who was later identified as McFarland.

    McFarland, who served as Flynn’s deputy on the NSC, was first interviewed by the FBI in summer 2017. She said at that time she didn’t have a precise memory of whether Flynn had spoken to the then-Russian ambassador or what they may have discussed.

    But shortly after Flynn pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to investigators about his conversation with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak about sanctions, McFarland spoke to the special counsel’s office. She had reviewed her notes and documents by then and walked back what she previously said — this time saying that she did remember from a conversation with Flynn that he had discussed sanctions with Kislyak. 😂 Well no sh-.t.

    On Dec 29 2016, McFarland wrote in an email to a colleague that sanctions announced hours earlier by President Obama in retaliation for Russian meddling were aimed at discrediting Trump’s victory, and would make it hard for Trump to ease tensions with Russia.

    “If there is a tit-for-tat escalation Trump will have difficulty improving relations with Russia, which has just thrown U.S.A. election to him,” she wrote.

    Trump was at Mar-a-Lago on December 29 when McFarland — who was also at Mar-a-Lago — and Flynn spoke by phone about Kislyak.

    Trump picked Flynn for the fact that he had close ties to Putin. Flynn’s crimes and betrayal have been well reported and documented. In a now infamous video, Flynn is seen applauding and toasting Putin, Trump’s benefactor, and America’s adversary. The video shows that the Dec. 10, 2015 Moscow dinner Flynn attended was swarming with ex-russian spies, Putin’s cronies and oligarchs. In the video, Flynn is seated next to Putin at the head table.

    Flynn’s lies to the FBI prompted the DoJ to warn Trump about Flynn. On January 26, 2017, acting AG Sally Yates, personally informed the White House that Flynn lied to the FBI about his calls with Kislyak, and therefore was at risk of being blackmailed by Russia. But instead of immediately taking action against Flynn, Trump decided to reward Sally Yates for doing her job, and for her due diligence in warning him about Flynn, by firing her 3 days later. Let that sink in for a moment..

    On May 17, 2017, during a White House meeting days after Trump’s election, President Obama ONCE AGAIN tried to help dumb Donald by warning him about Flynn, but Trump proceeded with hiring Flynn anyway. Longtime Trump confidant Chris Christie also directly advised Trump against hiring Flynn. “If I were president-elect of the United States, I wouldn’t let General Flynn into the White House, let alone give him a job,” Christie said in 2017..

    an ag should be non political and should never be appointed by any politician.I am sure this admin and Barr have destroyed lots of evidence of their wrongdoings.

    “Obamagate and you know what I’m talking about” 😂😂😂😂😂

  5. Obama did not spy on Trump or the Trump campaign, nor did he direct the FBI to do so.

    The FBI was investigating a very real attack on the US electoral system by RUSSIA when they questioned Flynn, who lied specifically about contact with RUSSIA. He was rightly prosecuted for telling a material lie to the FBI agents whose job it is to protect us from Putin.

    These are the findings of Trump’s own appointees.

    Recent political maneuvering by the servile dominionist weasel Bill Barr does not alter those FACTS.

    Republicans love cops, except the ones who catch Republicans doing crimes red handed.

  6. yup trump is trying everything to see what sticks so he can mess up democrats chance of winning!!!

  7. Trump claiming there’s a crime Obama committed is like listening to a kid claim they totally do have a girlfriend! … she just lives in Canada😂😂

  8. Biden / Holder 2020 !

  9. It is not absurd!!!
    Just for a starter: Wearing a tan suit is SOOO much worse than running a fake university.

    Obama is one of the best Presidents while tRump is going down as the Worst one term Presidents & Presidents ever!

    • get professional help please

    • @Karen Contestabile Ok, so I’ll just give you that…not going to argue. So your false god, tRump has killed off over 80,000 AMERICAN CITIZENS by his complete failure at handling this pandemic. How many more people in our country need to die before you stop supporting the Orange Buffoon? (And I am also sort of curious, how many of the over 1 million people infected with Covid 19 have “Obama Care”….wonder if they think having health care was a “fail”)

    • Karen Contestabile compared to president covid45, Obama is a saint 😉

    • @Karen trump has continued and expanded the drone program using it more than obama during his first term.

    • Becky Bowen New York Democrat leaders responsible for more than half this mess. Look it up!

    When a new administration is selected, They should Let Barr remain in his position and force him to charge, prosecute and convict Trump for the obvious crimes that they have both committed!

  17. Barr complicit in Trumps crimes.

  18. FAST AND FURIOUS
