  1. So what is barr going to do about russian interference?

    • Anthony Hafciojoni | July 28, 2020 at 4:15 PM | Reply

      Barr is going to step aside because he has sadly been compromised.

      what did Obama do about the Russian interference? besides Falsely Accusing Trump of Colluding with Russians

      @tanon I love how you guys pretend the entire Mueller investigation never happened. You must have heard about it at least once… for crying out loud it’s all Rachel Maddow screeched about for three years straight.

      @Cartoonishly Inept You mean the Mueller investigation that concluded that Russia interfered in the 2016 election on Trump’s behalf, just like the GOP-controlled Senate Intelligence committed concluded the same thing?

    • He is going to help them. Barr needs a third mansion, a boat and an escape route when orange turd goes down. Do you really think he will come here out unscathed? I cant believe that this moron think that there will be no reckoning. Does he really think that when his orange turd loses that he can go back to his old life? He will be investigated till his death and there will be so much dirt uncovered that will be neck deep in his mess. It would not surprise me at all that it turns out that many of the republicans are planted agents of the old Soviet union. It only explains some their odd behavior.

    We have to assume that Trump is already colluding with Russia and China and Ukraine and Saudi Arabia and Turkey… because he is

  3. What ever Barr says is just more lies and BS. He did forget to add that in order for Russia to be effective in assisting Trumps reelection Mr. Barr will have to support their interference. Either through the lack of funding given to agencies that are supposed to defend our nation from it or just by direct lack of action from his own agency. Barr is simply a POS.

    • @Walt Schmidt Reading comprehension weak with you? I mentioned the sanctions in my comment. All the details of what Russia did was not available until after the election. The only thing else Obama could have done was go public with what he knew at the time (the hacking of DNC emails by Russian Military Intelligence) If he would have gone public, Clinton would have won because of what Obama did. Would that have made you happy? Get a clue whiner.

    • @Walt Schmidt About what? Russian interference? He let CIA investigate and that led them to Trump’s Tower. But the election ended before the investigation could be complete and Trump has interfered with it for 4 years running

      *Democrats will*

      Depress the Economy

      Depress the Stock Market

      Depress the Jobs Market

      – that’s called SABOTAGE

    • @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 And yet 20,000 fewer jobs per month under Trump than under Obama. Larger percentage increase in the stock market under Obama than Trump . You need to quit just parroting talking points and consider actual historical facts.

    • @Walt Schmidt He initiated investigations of Trump’s corrupt campaign, you Moron !

    Now listen Barr saids he has no reason to believe that it will be rigged.. when referring to Russia However if you bring up mail in ballots he’ll say yeah.. there’s rigging involved.. this corrupted clown Barr is admitting to doing Trump bidding!!

    • Walt Schmidt | July 28, 2020 at 3:56 PM | Reply

      Mail in ballots have been PROVEN to be corrupt you clown.

    • Bill Collins | July 28, 2020 at 4:09 PM | Reply

      Walt Schmidt listen you moron obviously their has been.. ok and all by republicans senate only.. but those were isolated areas.. there’s no evidence of large accountability!! So there you go you trump supporter and that in itself is considered a very big insult!! Inbred!

    • @Walt Schmidt BULL SCHMIDT !!

    • Walt Schmidt | July 29, 2020 at 5:05 PM | Reply

      @RicOshayed1 LOL. That’s a good one…i can handle it bro.

  7. Tzvi Krasner | July 28, 2020 at 3:10 PM | Reply

    He’s admitting it because Trump is going to insist that Russia interfered to defeat him.

    • Yep – its over. Trump is done! Remember, It starts with us!

    • @J Did you miss it, Barr confirmed the Russian interference. It wasn’t a hoax.

    • @roger rives By selling the lefties a bunch of min-information? In that case then sure they “interfered” but if you invoked it then why is it right?… No Russian wants Trump in office for the same reason as you – they need handouts and dems give the best handouts lol.

    • @J Your comment is based on either ignorance or brainwashing. The Republican controlled Senate Intelligence Committee confirmed the interference and that it was done on Trump’s behalf. Putin himself said he preferred Trump to Clinton and said he would be happy to help Trump again in 2020. Remember Helsinki.

    • Tzvi Krasner | July 28, 2020 at 10:50 PM | Reply

      @J Blocked for being a trollbot

  8. ‘Did Russia interfere or attempt to Interfere in the 2016 election? Barr ‘Ah yes’. And there you finally have it.

    • @Rudolf Nobody disputes that? Really what about your fuher donald trump? He has yet to admit to that happening. He said he believed putin over our own intelligence agencies. Bill Barr himself has been on Fox News saying Russian Hoax, and now finally under oath he tells the truth. He will be right back on fox news as if he never said that under oath. Guess what Fox news wont even show that question and admission. Was paul manafort not on the trump campaign? Because he was convicted because he was lying about having contact with Russians who were interfering with our election. The same guy they dropped charges for because and I quote Bill Barr said” There was no underlying crime when Manafort lied to the FBI, so the lie is invalid.” So he says the Russians were not doing anything wrong so it was ok for Manafort to lie about it. Now he admits the Russian did commit a crime by interfering with our election. So when you say nobody disputes that you sound really stupid. Because the whole trump administration disputes that, and they convinced their ignorant base the same thing. You can go back to 2016 and you wont find a single quote from someone in the trump administration/ campaign saying anything but Russian hoax. So yea when he says “And there you finally have it”. Thats what he is talking about.

      @Super Slash When she said Democrat voters are stupid and easy to manipulate? Yes, she was right.

    • Penny Grensavitch | July 28, 2020 at 4:56 PM | Reply

      He has read the full Mueller report and couldnt lie..other people would bust him fornlting right away

    • Cartoonishly Inept | July 28, 2020 at 5:57 PM | Reply

      @Penny Grensavitch If he read the Mueller report, then he knows the interference was limited to ~$150K of Facebook ads. Half of which were either anti-Trump or run after the election. So… **YAWN**

    • @Penny Grensavitch He hasn’t read the entire report. He even said so a few months ago. Even during this hearing he said that he never read Trump’s tweet, which one of them was actually quoted in the Mueller Report because it was of dire importance.

    I’ve never seen anyone slither as much as Barr… Even Trump doesn’t slither that much… The man’s a snake who is poisoning the Justice Dept for Trump.

  10. Please soon you’re gonna have 300 million people with nothing left to lose heading towards White House

      *Barack Obama gave Americans an L-shaped economic recovery*

      *Donald Trump will give Americans a V-shaped economic recovery*

    • Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 Sweetheart, I would fact check that. Use several different sites and several different search engine’s. You can also research “what has Trump cost taxpayers” 💕

    I sure hope when it comes time for him to pay the piper, he speaks years in prison.

    • Logan McLean | July 28, 2020 at 4:18 PM | Reply

      Nothing will happen to him. Y’all are dreaming

    • @Logan McLean Yeah. He could visit a guy like Epstein in jail, and a guy like Epstein could then end up dead, and no one would suspect a thing !


  13. “Assuming” is for the little people… the government guys have to “know”.

  14. We also have to assume that Trump and the GOP will lie, cheat, and try to steal the election.
    If that doesn’t work, expect Trump to try to invalidate it…
    #Tyranny #ComplicitGOP #DisbarBarr

  15. The 140 plus meetings with Russians with trump campaign.

  16. Why did Barr gas the protesters?
    So the chicken could cross the road…

  17. Only thing rigged is barr protecting pedos at Epstein island! Fact

    “We Have To Assume” ? are you kidding me? and your the USAG? Do Bears SH-t in the Woods?

  19. “I have no reason to think it will be”

    We’re trying our hardest to make that happen.

    He doesn’t even tried to hide the fact that they don’t care to know our constitution. SMDH.
