  1. Yeah…he won’t have to pay the Dept of Justice.
    All of his campaign funds are going to lawyers already.

    Justice delayed is Justice denied.

  3. I get the news fatigue but does no on think it’s strange the DOJ makes a move like this?

      Uh, yes. This should be totally against the law. No funds should be spent on legal actions when he was a citizen. Period.

    • After Trump lost his ”fixer” Michael Cohen, he replaced him with William Barr.
      Smart move! Trump had to pay Cohen out of his own pocket, but now we taxpayers are paying Barr.

    Outrageous abuse of power. Barr should be held to account

  5. If this is for real!!! This has to be joke …. Barr is surely headed for a room with bars.

    • David Carter, Zionist Barr is anti America. He is destroying its justice system, its constitution and making a mockery of America.

    “I would not have assaulted her, she’s not my type.”
    Let’s pause and think about his statement:
    If she *had* been his type…
    He always either intentionally, or unintentionally, tells the truth about what he’s done.

    Desperate times call for desperate measures🙄

  8. This is becoming worst than tabloids at the grocery store.. what is next we find out Bigfoot is related to trump??

  9. The accusation and defence need to be tested in court. Regardless, Bill Barr should not be using the DOJ, a public institution, to assist Trump in a personal matter.

    • Agreed the State should not use it’s unlimited resources to protect any Citizen INCLUDING the President from a trial by jury. Effectively, Barr has sanctioned State funding to Protect Trump from any Criminal or Civil prosecution. Abhorrent misuse of the Office of The President of The United States.

    • nni9310 where did you get your laws degree from?

    • @John Mathews Probably none of us have law degrees, but some laws are easier to interpret than others because they are directly linked to the Constitution of the US, In fact these laws may not be misinterpreted by law because it’s so important to the bedrock of Democracy in the USA,.

  10. This happened before he was elected and is not in any way entitled to use the resources of the Federal Government to defend himself!!!

    • @mrBDeye the point is trump cannot use the resources of the Federal Government to defend himself for something he did while not in office. If Biden committed a similar offense then he should definitely be held accountable.

    • @Chris Johnson The fact that he is being accused during his Presidency by the *Federal court* allows him to defend himself. Thanks for your opinion.

    • @mrBDeye He is not being accused by a Federal Court, the statute of limitations has run out making that impossible. Try getting your facts straight.

    • @Chris Johnson “Blitz” by David Horowitz good place to start. The Bible helps to.

    • @John Mathews you should be suggesting that to trump!

  11. The AG is compromised and corrupting his office. Unfit. History will judge Barr the worst AG ever.

  12. I hope she sues the Department of Justice as well because now they are representing the President in what looks like a conflict of interest.

  13. Sounds like Toady Barr is worried about this one!

  14. Another delay tactic to get this case past the election.

  15. Instead of managing America’s affairs the DOJ is now a taxpayer funded defence team for Trump’s crimes!

    • @Richard Flower … know it lib LOSER…Dems are true thiefs..but your to stupid to figure it out..typical lib loser moron…good luck with that

    • @Paul Small you can’t come up with any facts either? Feel free to show your ignorance by spewing factless bulls–t in your responses. Try doing some fact finding for a refreshing outlook on your leaders lack of leadership. If you dare.

    • @Richard Flower .Hey loser..what facts do have CNN…you libs have got to be the stupidest people on earth…the funny thing is…your proud of it..good job loser

    • @Richard Flower ..Your the main reason the Dems are ” THE PARTY OF THE EASILY FOOLED LOSERS”

    • @Paul Small only losers are backing Trump and his commie friends.

  16. He says he didn’t meet anyone, Jeffery Epstein, is a prime example.

  17. Carole Trudeau | September 9, 2020 at 2:46 PM | Reply

    Monique El Fazi & Barron Levine have published a book,”The P redator”, which presents 67 sexual assault cases against Dt.

  18. Umm how would the Attorney General not realize that this is Illegal?

    • He absolutely does. This isn’t actually about protecting Trump, it’s more about sending a message. He’s both publicly declaring that his loyalties lie with Trump, not with the United States, and demonstrating his ability to do something like this with relative impunity. It’s basically a challenge: “Yeah, I’m breaking the law for him. What are you going to do about it?”

  19. Why are we paying for this ? Not our problem
    HIS problem. He needs to get his own attorneys ….

  20. Trump : ” She is not my type! ”
    If she were his type, what would he have done?
