      @Michael Wuj you have just described Donald trump perfectly


    • The comment came just a day after President Donald Trump and others called on Congress to send direct payments of $1,200.
      “Why isn’t Congress giving our people a Stimulus Bill?” the president asked Saturday night. “It wasn’t their fault, it was the fault of China,” he added, referring to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus that caused a worldwide pandemic. “GET IT DONE, and give them more money in direct payments.”

      Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said Sunday that the final deal would include direct $600 payments and an extension of the small business loan program, known as the Payment Protection Program, that was set up during the CARES Act in March.

      “It’s a little more specific this time in that the business has to be fewer than 300 employees and they have to actually show a loss,” he said.

      Last week, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) said he worked with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to include $1,200 stimulus payments in the package, but it appears to have been rejected.

    • “We have put together, I think, the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics,”-
      Joe Biden

    • @Enis Zita special council is needed cause then biden cannot stop it

  3. Seriously?! Like why are they even going after Hunter Biden. He’s not running for congress or anything.

      @Edward Woods LMAO!!!! CONspiracy bs.

    • No! He is having Hunter Biden Investigated, because that Corrupt, China Lover Joe, is fully involved in his Sons activities. There is a Documentary, which goes into all of the Chinese Companies, Hunter was involved in and there are heaps! Joe Biden has been Implicated because of Emails showing so, as well as Witness’s who were in Business with Hunter Biden, who stated that his Father was fully Involved. This is real, but if you rely on CNN, or any of the other Main Media News Outlets for your Information, you wont hear anything about it. If you watch Epoch News online, you will see reporting like CNN and the like, used to do. Now they only show one sided News, they tell you what is what, when they are supposed to give the facts and let you make up your own mind. They Dictate to their Viewers. Anyone with any Brains should be able to see that they are Corrupted. Even when Trump does something great, they don’t cover it, allways with Negative comments. They are going to have to answer for their involvement in the attempted Coup, which happened during these Elections. Facebook, Youtube and Google are also going to have to answer for their Crimes. Don’t think for a Minute, that Biden will be the next President, it’s not going to happen. If you watched uncorrupted News, you would see the Evidence, they keep saying isn’t there. Professional Evidence, Forensic Evidence, Video footage, Photo’s and Hundreds of People who signed Affidavits and will and have, given Evidence of all the Cheating. There are Democrats giving Evidence, who vote Democrat, but are decent People, who don’t want to win by Fraud. They aren’t going to let Biden take the top spot, when they know they Defrauded the Win, no way! Main Media Outlets are pulling your chains, they are making fools of you. A lot of you are no doubt decent People, but you are being lied too and haven’t realised it yet. One Day you will see the truth!

    • @Wayne Durham good rant but put the shoe on the other foot .. think about it✌

  4. He’s one to speak on responsibility…lmao

  5. If you investigate hunter Biden then you should investigate Ivanka Jared Jr. And Eric. Lets keep it real here

  6. Now he’s thinking about doing the right thing, on his last week in this administration, total corruption on behalf of Trump! He is a Disgrace !

  7. He now acts like an AG because he’s got to get another job in a couple days.

    • @Nivram El-sanh Barr has committed the ultimate crime of disloyalty towards the mob. boss.

    • @Katherine Raven that ain’t a lot compared to somebody like Meghan McCain who’s net worth is over $200 million 😏😏. Then again over my lifetime I’ve made probably less than $2 million and I’m in my 60s.

    • @Katherine Raven 40 million is enough to get Barr a nice funeral.

      @Debbie something has to be done about the Koch & Mercer families too.

    • @Nivram El-sanh I’m sure they’re working on their next ‘president’ right this very minute. Isn’t it Rebecca Mercer funding the parlor website which really is another way to recruit right wing nutters? Isn’t Ted Cruz on that site and a few other of trump’s goons? These crazies are interviewing for the next election. They do need to stop these people but how? I guess it’s up to the people to demand it. Thanks for acknowledging this 🙂

    The Donald… gonna blow a fuse ,

  9. Curious. Barr showing buyer’s remorse? Legal jeopardy finally real? Too insane to stay on Trump Train?

    Wise to get off at next stop. The man has a lot of work to do if he’s to redeem his deceitful and harmful abuses of power.

    • Barr sold his soul to the evil, dictator wannabe. All of them did. Including his leech lawyers. If Barr had any morals at all he would have jumped off that disgusting, sinking ship a long time ago.

    • There is not enough hour per day, days per week, weeks per month, months per years, for bill barr to redeem himself. Does he think EVERYONE is stupid.

      Get off Yotube

      Trump & Biden are Israeli shills
      Netanyahu trump Biden

      All financed by ADELSON
      👉🏽“Rothschild” paymaster

      Rothschild OWNS
      Wants banks in Syria & Iran

      It’s all an Israeli scam…

    • No, this isn’t a rat jumping off a sinking ship. This is a rat who needs to start working on his and Trump’s criminal defense right now and can’t do so if he has a conflict of interest as AG.

    • @htomerif They can hire Ghouliani or Powell. Slime defending slime.

  10. They already had investigation way back…. So no Surprise … Nothing there

    • @Lene Danielsen TRUMP’S own Department of Justice says it’s fake, nothing there. There’s nothing there, you nitwit.

    • @Lene Danielsen In other words, like all conspiracy theorists, you’ll just roll anyone that disagrees into the conspriacy. This way, it’s unfalsifible. Classic tactic of the delusional. Just as what’s going on with the right’s election fraud scam. No evidence, just accusations. And when all 50 plus judges, and even conservatives, point this out, they become part of the plot.

    • NEW BIDEN SCANDAL. It’s Not Only Hunter, The Biden Political RACKET Is FAMILY Tradition!

    • @Michael Wuj it’s hilariously ridiculous watching a Trump supporter complain about nepotism. Do you even know what hypocrisy means? HE PUT HIS CHILDREN IN HIS ADMINISTRATION

    • @Lene Danielsen there was nothing even there it was investigated. You just want to believe what the GOP have to say but never facts but wait until it is the Trumps who deserve to be investigated and there will be evidence to prove criminal intent.

  11. Oh oh, Barr better get running. The crazy goon squad will be coming after him.

    • When Barr leaves, the sychophant who takes his place will try to appoint a Special Council. Hunter Biden is not a public official. There is no conflict of interest. Trump is just a bitter, spiteful man-child who should have never been given power.

    • Princess Tiarra | December 21, 2020 at 2:56 PM | Reply

      I’m surprised Barr isn’t get death threats from TRUMPSTERS.

    • @J Groovy
      My thought exactly. And crazy Sydney is the sort he will choose. A responsible person like Mueller would not work. But a crazy person puts Biden in a no win situation. He either fires them to stop them spewing rumors and conspiracy theories in a smear campaign, or he fires them and appears corrupt to many.

    • Surely the crazy goon squad will be too busy looking for new jobs…

    • Too funny! 😃😃😃

  12. People aren’t backing up the crazy 😜- WOW! that is refreshing 🇺🇸

  13. I hope this is announced on FAUX. They need more to cry about.

    • The Trump Fascist Party doesn’t watch Fox News anymore. Literally. Fox’s standards are too high. They watch OANN and NTD, both Russian funded, GRU backed propaganda entities.

  14. Try as he might, he’ll never change his legacy as the most corrupt and worst AG in American history!

  15. Too little too late to clean up his act . It is on record that he is one of the Trump enablers and history should not be forgiven to him

  16. Too busy destroying criminal evidence against himself to bother w that!!

    I can’t wait until this AG is dis-BARR-ed!!

    Cause an attorney is barred in order to practice law? And his last name is Barr? Ay, you wouldn’t get it….

  18. Walter Sickinger | December 21, 2020 at 12:42 PM | Reply

    Barr is trying to cleanse his image. He still needs to be prosecuted for his crimes in office and go to prison.

  19. Something isn’t right here.. Barr grows a conscience? Little late isn’t it?

  20. This will drive Trump to even more insanity than he has already generated.
