  1. Trump is trying to make a coup and take power, and Barr is trying to help him. That IS the facts.

  2. Barr has been the Orange Mobster’s “Hitman” since the day Barr took office. His DOJ is in shambles. He needs to be prosecuted when Trump loses in November.

    • During the protest Donald stated: dominate the protestors. Does that mean Trump supporters are dominated and too ignorant and blind to see it?

      Bill Bar needs to leave. – Bonnie Robinson

    • @Adam Riccitelli you’re just a minority. trump in fear will hide in the bunker when he loses, and will have to be carried out….. there are too many criminal charges awaiting him and his children.

    • @zapazoid hey zitface, did you notice that there are a way less right wingnut comments on these sites lately. It’s because the big social media companies are deleting all the Commie fake accounts from Russia and China.

  3. Attorney General Bill Barr is Trump’s personal “Consigliere” like in the “God Father” who tries to use his legal power to strong arm the justice system to do Trump’s dirty bidding; lookout for the “Horse’s Head” in the bed.

  4. In Desperation, Trump, Barr, McConnell and the other Gutless Republican Sycaphants are trying to run out the clock to the 2020 Election. Cheers from Michael. Australia.

    • @SPARTAMERICUS You need to get to the rally and lick all hard surfaces

      @SPARTAMERICUS How is Australia a wreck. We are open. Virtually no covid 19. Lots of jobs. Aussie dollar up on the US$. We are happy and prosperous and curious. Why the rudeness.? Are you having a problem?

      You mean like USA is always staying out of the business of other countries in the world?
      Maybe, if Americans like you actually grew a brain, your country would not be in such a mess.
      Is it really so difficult to read the American Constitution?
      All real Americans, who actually love their country, have no problem in recognizing criminal behavior when they see it.
      Now, I am definitely not a fan of American republicans but a real republican like Steve Schmidt definitely has my respect for the simple reason that he knows right from wrong and he understands better than most the type of damage Trump is doing to not only America but also to the republican party.
      Maybe you should try to consider the following.
      Trump invited the other G7 members to come to Camp David. Germany declined followed by the rest of the members. Do you really think that it would not have been possible for them to come to Camp David?
      They respectfully declined using Covid-19 as an excuse, but it is very clear that this was not the main reason. The main reason is that none of the other six G7 members want to be in the same room as Donald Trump. Take a minute to try to understand the implications of that and then think about the childish reply from your president, which was to announce that he would pull half of all American troops home from Germany, thus putting another nail in the coffin of 75 years of building alliances with Europe.
      A little thought experiment here. What would happen if European countries suddenly decided to spend 10% of their GDP on military buildup? Would USA like a militarized Europe again? If that happened, USA would lose all foothold in Europe.

      Well, the Democrats sure have taken their time.

    • TheChiefEng I enjoyed this comment quite a bit 👍🏼

    history will not be kind to this administration…

  7. Barr: the lowest of the lowest and biggest liar and a traitor to his office. Once we have a change of Government he should be brought to Justive.

  8. Make no mistake, there will be a reckoning for Trump and Barr once Trump’s criminal organization is removed from Office next year. There is going to be a number of criminal investigations into everything they did.

    A Fake Attorney General to go with a Fake President ! They should both be buried !


  11. Ari & MSNBC: anytime you have Steve Schmidt on, I literally stop whatever I’m doing to watch. It’s so refreshing to hear someone tell it like it really is. No BS, fluff and reality-TV crap.

    Let’s be clear, Bill Barr is a rogue criminal, operating a criminal enterprise with Traitor Trump!!!!!

      @Saynoto Socialists Is English your first language? Something is a “that.” Someone is a “who” or “whom.” Hope that helped, from someone who (not that) leaned English when he was in his twenties. Are you also using “should of” instead of the proper “should have?” Again, happy to help.

      @Saynoto Socialists And by the way, someone who uses the word “loser” a lot, is usually one him/her self. And it starts with you using an ignorant statement/suggestion as a user name or profile. You know very little about the subject of socialism. So, you hate something you don’t know about. That is typical for ignorant and racist individuals. Cheers!

      Syclone0044 , so you’re complaining about republicans in the senate acting like the democrats in the house acted ?
      Democrats had nothing but hearsay and opinion evidence , meaning democrats had nothing

    • Saynoto Socialists | June 16, 2020 at 10:49 PM | Reply

      Walter Lichtenberg , FYI I was smart enough to help elect Trump , but democrats where to stupid to get the hildabeast elected even with fake news all in on getting the hildabeast elected , that doesn’t say much for the collective intelligence of democrats do that ? 🤣

    • I bet Jerry that Bill sent emails from his home server to the Ukraine asking if they could put his son on their payroll to the tune of $80,000 per month……….It wasn’t actually Biden who did that

    Trumpgate is about to implode! Get the popcorn! This will be good!

    • and when it doesn’t happen…….what then Marilyn……..you going to keep looking under rocks to find something rofl….this has been a circus for 3 years and you people are still blind sheep following mainstream media….just plain stupid

  14. Barr needs to be charged and arrested for his crimes against the people.

    Steve Schmidt Does NOT Spare The Rod when He’s Speaking about Trump.

  16. Everyone that gets involved with Trump ends up in legal trouble. Lol

    That may be the best term for the Trump Administration, so far.

  20. Barr hasn’t even been confirmed. There must be restrictions place on “acting” officials.
