    That’s it. I’m not watching, listening to, or even looking at another anything about Trump and his cronies. IDGAF anymore.

    No one is above the law! If they don’t hold EVERY law breaker accountable, what is the point in having laws?

    • @sharon olsen listening to Democrats talk about justice and the rule of law is sad. If your side ever gets the power it wants it will be used against you soon enough. I’ll just refer to you as a future Robespierre and hope I am wrong since you are likely a good person.

    • Let me see Comey and McCabe lied to Congress several times and they got nothing except Fired.

    • @sharon olsen makes you feel superior or something when you a lower case t in President Trumps name! Sorry excuse piece of Bull Matter…lmao

    • @jake ragsdale you are stupid.

      @jake ragsdale none of the individuals you mention did crimes for President Obama. That is the big difference.

    Oh and by the way almost 75millon PEOPLE who are RACIST VOTED for TRUMP THE CHUMP. AMERICA has big problems.

  4. Andrew Weissman was about the only person to be honest about what he considered to be Bob Mueller’s dropping of the ball and disappointing the American people with the way the Mueller report was handled. I give him major props for that.

    • oh

    • I remember the flack I got when I said Mueller dropped the ball… I was ridiculed something fierce.. But I stood by my assessment then, and do so now.. Mueller was NOT the boy scout everyone wanted / expected / hoped for..

    • So you believe in withholding exculpatory evidence.

    • @Bruce Smith You mean like holding a Senate Impeachment trial with no witnesses allowed?

    • @sharon olsen And don’t forget…Bob Mueller, along with Colin Powell, FALSELY certified that Iraq had WMD. That laid the foundation for launching an illegal attack on another country, resulting in crimes against humanity.

    I agree. Please nominate Glenn Kirschner for Attorney General.

  6. The “Law and Order” president pardons a convicted felon.

    • Only convicted persons can be pardoned and there are very few federal misdemeanors. What an embarrassing post.

    • Brendan Brogren | November 25, 2020 at 9:58 PM | Reply

      @jake ragsdale did obama say law and order over 200 times in 10 months??? Did Obama run his re-election campaign on the fake fear of the suburbs being overrun with criminal minorities??? Did Obama pardon people that he conspired with??? No I didn’t think so.

    • @jake ragsdale shut the eff up stupid. You are uneducated and clueless.

    • @Brendan Brogren 👏🏼👏🏼

    • @Eric Willison I’d suggest you actually learn a bit about pardons before you post in the future.
      That way you will not prove that you have no idea what you are talking about like you have here.

    A “pardon” is an admission of guilt. So good luck with that ! 🙄🤕

  8. There can be no peace or healing in America until tRump is in prison.

    • Donovan Martin | November 25, 2020 at 9:25 PM | Reply

      He will be pardoned, get a TV show and become the idol of all right wing militias. He will inspire conspiracy theorists to do very bad things to America

    This is so important please keep on top of it. Don’t pressure Biden on his AG pick as we wait to see how Georgia Senate races play out. We MUST follow through on reinstating the rule of law or an even worse wanna be dictator will come along.

    • Obama and Biden are dictators and you support tyranny. You are truly vile. You are the type that supported Hitler, Mao, stalin, pol pot

  11. There’s going to be many pardons.

  12. The depth and breadth of the absolute vile corruption of tRump, his administration and the GOP is staggering ! There had better be a reckoning and these wrongs made right. THAT will be part of healing this country needs.

    Senator William Cohen:
    “Former Republicans used to believe in the Rule of Law. I don’t see that any longer.
    It’s now the Law of Rule.”

    As a Republican that have seen a party been hijacked in soul and thought.  We wish it was not this way. But, the Republican Party committed the error OF EVEN PERMITTING THAT TRUMP BE ITS LEADER IN 2016.

    The Republican Party WILL SUFFER IN THE HANDS OF USA that such evil penetrated inside the party. Still people like McConnell, Graham, Cruz , Rubio and more serve Trump.  The party needs to remove all this evil before USA will trust in it again.

    All racism, selfish greed biased to the rich, white supremacy, QAnon, hatred injected by Trump messages, even condoning groups such as the Proud Boys AND OTHERS, will linger negatively.

    SOMEONE IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY NEEDS TO CLEAN ALL THIS. We don’t even know how safe Joe Biden’s life is when people with guns in rallies have given approval to Trump. Those are white supremacists infiltrated on THEIR OWN AGENDA.


  15. Trump’s administration will be remembered as the most corrupt in American History! That will be the con man’s legacy!

  16. Peter pay for Paul and Paul pays for ALL.
    When pence pardon trump, pence should then pay the PRICE for them all!

  17. Trump must be held accountable for his crimes before and during his presidency. America has to maintain its integrity by upholding the Justice system!

  18. Even Mobsters have more integrity than Trump….!!!

  19. Why would they hesitate to pursue justice? There are two possible messages for future presidents: you can get away with it or you can’t. There can be no compromise.

  20. Yep, everyone who broke the law has to face the music. Everyone.
