    The Art of the lock him up

  3. They’re owned by their big money donors. Stop voting for them.

  4. And the Chief Justice still remains silent . . .

    • @doobie s oringes – why didn’t the world bank, IMF, EU and perhaps African leaders too not use their loans to Ukraine to demand that the prosecutor is fired? This excuse will not wash with me. The prosecutor was a political appointee so how do you imagine just getting rid of him would improve corruption in Ukraine? That is just ridiculous. Its like China bullying trump to fire Barr because he is not prosecuting corruption like McCabe. Barr is a political appointee so it would make not a single difference.

    • @doobie s oringes – you are again missing my point, what he did was wrong but for you leftists to be going mad that he deserves 9 years is crazy. It is the same disproportionate sentencing that we have 1 in 3 blacks in prison today. A lot of prosecutors would admit that they pile on in order to increase the prison time.

      @Mark Bullock Trump and Barr are crooks.

    • @Anthony Browne ok

    • @Kay Bel If you committed went before a congressional panel and lied through your teeth and then went into a court of law and lied again, all to protect your friend the president, do you think Trump would fly to your aid??

  5. Mad respect for Elie Honig…..he does his homework and is prepared.

  6. Impeach again. First president in history to be impeached twice !!

    • Why not impeach him 20 times? And 20 acquittals to go with that. Hahahaha!!!

      If Roger Stone gets 7 to 9 yrs. For what he did, fine. Jussie Smollett should get life. Sounds fair…

    • Every time you impeach, trumps numbers go up 10 points. Please do it😁

    • @matt eppich You act as the result of the impeachment was a victory. How many defendants have ever been found guilty when the jury is made of up of their best friends, who have financially profited from the defendant? It isn’t a victory, it is a joke. It is disturbing how many people either can’t comprehend that, or just don’t care. It is also disturbing that the extremists on the left are just as bad as those on the right.

    HE SOUNDS MORE RIGHT TO ME!!!
    IT WAS RETALIATION! Plain and simple!!!

  8. Affluent Americans, Educated Americans, & Patriots🇺🇸, flat out, cant agree with the continued mockery of our constitution
    🇺🇸 ✊🏼✊🏾✊🏿🇺🇸

    • C. H. Stone faces 7-9 years while McCabe is not charged at all. If you can’t see the one-sided, deep seated corruption in our government entities, it’s because you don’t want to see it. Barr is going to bring a storm!

    • The Constitution is going to be front and center.! Now we know why the Democrats hate Attorney General Bill Barr and are trying to impeach him.

      AG Bill Barr has already tapped a ‘Network’ of criminal prosecutors to investigate the Democrats Russia/Ukraine Cases

      Here is a list of the FIVE criminal internal Justice Department probes underway:
      1. The case of former national security adviser Michael Flynn
      2. Ukraine information (Joe Biden & Hunter Biden crimes)
      3. Durham probe into Democrats origins of Russia investigation
      4. Crooked Hillary Clinton Foundation, Uranium One crimes
      5. FISA warrant, Hillary Clinton email server document release

      Expect major bombshell indictments just before the November elections to swing it for republicans & Trump
      We are Winning !

    • @Trump 2020 and all the cases against trump? Nothing there?
      Spending donations to our WOUNDED VETERANS on a portrait of HIMSELF to put in his own resort is explainable?

      sad

    • @Rod why doesnt Barr indict Mcabe instead of overriding in a blatantly biased manner?

    • Andrew Ball President Trump fixed the VA. You’re making up bullshit again lefty

  9. CROOKS ARE LINING UP FOR THE JOB.

  10. Joseph de Maistre “Every country has the government that they deserve and in a democracy they have the leaders that they deserve”. Pogo “I have seen the enemy and he is us”

      I agree with you, people get the government they deserve.
      In the US enough people were luckily awakened from their slumber to vote Trump into power.
      Clinton would have been an unmitigated disaster.
      If you doubt this, do some research.

    • Hey I think we are a constitutional republic. So don’t be afraid. We have check and balances. Thank God the Senate checks the House or we would have seen a political coo by the Democrats. Embrace the wins.

    • @Steve Frankes prefer a communist?

  11. I think you got trolled by a “Professor”
    … or the “Professor” was a troll….
    Either way Elie, you were, indeed, right!

    • What lies? The CIA and intelligence told him about WMDs before the gulf war!!

      The same CIA that overthrew the elected government in Iran in 1953!!

      The same CIA that tried to overthrow the government of Cuba in 1959!! (Via the bay of pigs invasion)

      The same CIA that ran everyday operations in Vietnam (they were more concerned about enemy body counts rather than objectives)

  14. We didn’t need a Professor to tell us it was retaliatory any more than we need Lumberjacks to tell us about trees.

      @Trump 2020 Bullshit. You are in a cult.

    • @Patrick Bullard Tut,Tut,Tut…..You can’t handle the truth. That nice man Mr Trump has gathered together over 144,000 Sealed Indictments ready to unload on corrupt Politicians, FBI,CIA, Hollywood,MSM,music industry people……stay asleep because it will fun when you wake up.

    • Patrick Bullard Rather than say “bullshit”, why don’t you actually do some research? I know CNN makes you feel good, but you’re not getting the truth.

      @Bruce Lee Qanon is a scam. It is all made up. You are in a cult.

  15. AG ‘Fred Flintstone’ is an embarrassment almost as great as Trump himself! 🥴

      @Trump 2020 Qanon is a scam. You are in a cult.

    • you are more of an embarrssment you liberal b*tch

    • He’s a little worse actually. He’s not supposed to be working for the president. He’s supposed to be working for the people…and not just the people who are the presidents friends

      I don’t think he’s done anything in his entire term except those things he isn’t supposed to be doing. And to do that he has lied to and cheated the very people he’s supposed to be serving.

  16. Barr’s statement translated “Trump’s tweeting make it impossible to hide our corruption”

    • @Patrick Bullard is that was cnn told you to say….dolt

    • @Joe Shaloom You sound as if you’ve gone off the deep end. Pure hysteria in your writing. Gloom and doom? Take a deep breath and relax.

      @K. Mark lol you are dumb as dogshit dude. Go do some learning!

    • Fake News CNN Lost to Nick Sandmann – It wasn’t a confession, you fucking moron. He wasn’t trying to hide it. Biden had the support of everybody, including the EU, the IMF, and the REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS. And if what Biden did was illegal, then SO WAS WHAT TRUMP DID. There are absolutely no two ways about it.

  17. Barr isn’t allowed to be bias with the law. This downward slope of justice should terrify EVERYONE.

  18. Timing is everything. Vindman was firing after testifying and his brother was to punish the family. That’s terrorist behavior.

  19. “So often, the president would say here’s what I want to do and here’s how I want to do it and I would have to say to him, ‘Mr. President I understand what you want to do but you can’t do it that way. It violates the law.”
    – Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson

      cessna caravan Yeah Repubs were too nice to Obama, lol. Where did you get the lie about diplomats? Career diplomats stayed, most, not all political appointees were replaced.

    • Kay Bel – The difference is that other presidents don’t have to be told so often that it comes to light in public, and other presidents heed the warning. They don’t fire the advisor who told them. What kind of excuse is that, anyway?? “Can you be sure others haven’t been told that?” So, you don’t even know if they have, and if so, that makes it okay??

    • Tillerson was fired the day after he publicly criticized Putin.

    Epstein, now Roger stone, there is a clear pattern of intervention by the justice department to intervene on behalf of the wealthy and powerful…. America is no longer a democracy
