  1. So now Barr gets to cover up any further Trump criminality until the election. How handy.

  2. Barr just paving the way for the 1st American Reich .

  3. so the president now has the authority to mortally wound a political rival in hopes to remove his opposition and get reelected. nice, that sounds democratic.

    the 22nd amendment seems to be in the way of me getting a third term.. executive order to ignore it, the article 2 powers i have say i can do it, oh and the political rival once again gets into a mortal accident, what are the chances.

    I bet Russia and China are thrilled to control our elections and get Trump hotels in exchange.

    • When trump starts bashing #Bernie because he is a socialist. Explain to trump how the party system in our election is a #socialist idea!

      How he just made a trade dwal with #communists.

      How his favorite person #Putun. Is a #Communist.

      Does trump or the #GOP even know what socialism is as they use it to #tweet out lies to us?

    • Right is not a number, and is sometimes all alone

    • @sam getalong You’re not alone. Not even in crimson red TX. 👍

      @Nomore Illegals please True Comment…. There are many issues involved and all countries have an immigration process. Provided one comes through the front door and complies with the same. I new law is being passed where any family who has a loved killed by an illegal immigrant from any of the sanctuary states, that state can now be sued.

    • Yep all them corrupt Democrats….
