    Trump’s newest lawyer👌🏽

  2. The lies are being cooked up as we read.

    • Yep, they cooked up a bunch a fake fisa warrants. I bet the FBI and FISA gets shut down.

    • @Mainely There’ll be a huge difference between what is about to happen and what has been happening for the last 3 years….It’ll be based on facts and lots and lots of DOCUMENTATION complete with signatures of the criminals. There will be no denying what was done

    • @turfxpert Yep,comey signed three renewals knowing that hillary paid for it.

    • Justice is coming for the entire Democrat Party crime syndicate.

  3. 4 minutes? c’MON, man.

    … “and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.”

  5. Where is the whole interview. Can’t wait until all this comes out. I can’t wait to see who has turned to help this investigation!! It’s going to be interesting when all this is exposed

    • @J Bell sorta like for the right? Like how most people around Trump end up in jail? I wonder if that just a coincidence that Trump surrounds himself with criminals? Only a trumpist could beleive the guy who created a fake university to scam poor people is telling the truth.

    • @Melania’s Boyfriend Mueller went to foreign countries to investigate Trump.

    • @incipidsigninsetup Apparently you have NOT read the IG report. Criminal fraud on the FISA court perpetrated by the FBI under James Comey.

    • Melania's Boyfriend | December 10, 2019 at 5:42 PM | Reply

      @Anand Nathan Mueller had a fisa warrant. Trump is just mad the fbi can legally investigate him. His whole basis is the fbi illegaly investigated him, and the IG report debunks that. So woomp woomp, looks like game over.

    • Here is the full interview.


    • People like you are just not going to get it until there is a gun in your face, are you?

    • A President who attacks our FBI, Our fighters who save our nation, AND on the same day has Russians, who attacked our election, IN Our White House, IS UNFIT. Trump loves Russia & Russian MONEY more than us & our USA. He is greedy & unstable. This is wrong! Do the Republicans want to be elected on lies more than having courage to protect our Country? Russia is an aggressive, killing, nation grabbing country. Trump is so stupid he can not see this? Trump did not read the IG Report, that is laughable. He will not does not read anything! He does not Protect us, Trump puts us in Danger.

    To avoid public confusion from the very man who created public confusion with Muller’s Report. Incredible!

  8. Not good enough until the indictments start rolling in and putting these criminals behind bars.

  9. I’ll just wait for Durham but thanks

  10. He was one of the last people to visit Jeffery Epstein. Why did he visit? Maybe he owed money for service.

  11. Amazing what people will do for power. America is ruined.

  12. I wonder if John Mitchell’s cell is available

    How did the case collapse after the election?

    • Kelli Barnhouse | December 10, 2019 at 5:07 PM | Reply

      @turfxpert I have read , the Muller Report, Trumps Ukraine Phone Call and the US Constitution; Trump did
      commit Crimes against the Constitution, Plus bribery and extorsion!
      All for the Benefit of Russia! Trump is Not a King, and All US laws cover the President of the US!
      Trump is Guilty, Guilty, Guilty!

    • Read the IG report. The FBI lied to the court to keep the case open, repeatedly.

    • Well…. we found out lies were used in the fisa court….and they lied about when their coup operation started….and much more..

      @Kelli Barnhouse salty tears are so tasty

      @Kelli Barnhouse Have you read the IG report?

  14. I wonder if John Mitchell’s old cell is available

    • On February 21, 1975, Nixon’s Attorney General John N. Mitchell, was
      sentenced to two and a half to eight years in prison for his role in the
      Watergate break-in and cover-up, which he dubbed the “White House
      horrors.” As a result of the conviction, Mitchell was sent to prison and
      disbarred from the practice of law.

    • Not Enough Room For The Dems And Mainstream Media.

    • Epstein’s


  15. The one good thing about all this is it really sheds a light on how “justice” works in America..

    The case collapsed? Is that why people went to jail?

    • @aprox Trump was warned! About Manafort and Flynn. I could seriously care less about the the scandals and crimes of Hillary, Obama, or Bill, or either of the Bush’s!! They’re NOT the president at this point in time and they’re NOT the one handing our country over to Russia! It’s trump destroying this nation IN REAL TIME!! I’d suggest you keep up. It’s 2019. You’re just as bad as Trump – deny and deflect. Take no accountability or responsibility for what’s going on in the here and now. Never admit guilt, even if proven guilty – are words the president lives by. He’s a master manipulator and the giant gaslighter of the century!! He will go down in history as the worst president to ever hold the office.

    • Here is the full interview that explains better.

      This is how it fell apart. Page 188 of the report which is page 224 of the document download. The first paragraph explains that the Steele info was made up talk over beers and jesting.

      The Primary Sub-source was questioned again by the FBI beginning in March
      2017 about the election reporting and his/ her communications with Steele. The
      Washington Field Office agent {WFO Agent 1) who conducted that interview and
      others after it told the OIG that the Primary Sub-source felt that the tenor of
      Steele’s reports was far more “conclusive” than was justified. The Primary Sub-
      source also stated that he/she never expected Steele to put the Primary Sub-
      source’s statements in reports or present them as facts. According to WFO Agent
      1, the Primary Sub-source said he/ she made it clear to Steele that h’e/she had no
      proof to support the statements from his/her sub-sources and that “it was just
      talk.” WFO Agent 1 said that the Primary Sub-source explained that his/ her
      information came from “word of mouth and hearsay;” “conversation that [he/she]
      had with friends over beers;” and that some of the information, such as allegations
      about Trump’s sexual activities, were statements he/she heard made in “jest.”341
      The Primary Sub-source also told WFO Agent 1 that he/she believed that the other
      sub-sources exaggerated their access to information and the relevance of that
      information to his/her requests. The Primary Sub-source told WFO Agent 1 that
      he/she “takes what [sub-sources] tell [him/ her] with ‘a grain of salt.”‘

    • @Jamie Ostrowski No, that is not what Mueller concluded! He could not find *solid* proof that there was outright collusion *by the campaign.* But Donald Jr and Jared DID meet with Russians expecting to get juicy dirt on Hillary. If not collusion, what would you call that?

    • Dominic Buckley – how stupid are you? The case of Trump’s campaign colluding with anyone from Russia was proven bogus by the time Trump took office. All the process crimes that came after that point, would not have happened if they would have done the proper thing and close the investigation.

    “Their case collapsed”

  18. He validated Mr Durham’s statement. Them phone records were legit.

  19. I don’t see one good point from a dem/lib in the entire comment section. You people are toast

  20. “of course it was appropriate, I told him to do it…”
