  1. Lock up Don mcgahn for obstruction of justice by delay of 2 years plus!

    Justice delayed is justice denied!

    1. Trump’s White House said his testimony was privileged and wouldn’t let him testify. McGahn didn’t really have much choice.

    2. @Native Texan No. He complied with the subpoena and testified as soon as the justice department said he could

      Literally no one on either side understands anything anymore but think they know everything

    1. “Ashamed”? What a lame statement to make. This whole situation is beyond corrupt and Barr should be disbarred.

    2. @Daniel Flores You just keep presuming we “don’t know what’s coming” or are ill prepared for “what’s coming” little snowflake.

      History and Karma favor the courageous and righteous. Fascists have always been and will always be the minority. They shall be defeated again and again, as history has shown us.

      You cannot fear monger us into cowed inaction with your impotent, childish, posturing words.

    3. @Hans van Dijk go away, you are part of the problem, YouTube needs to keep other countries out of this, need the ability to block vpns also

  2. Trump fought to block McGahn’s testimony for years because it “exonerated” him. Ha ha. Sure

    1. @Crimdor
      And I sited Barr’s actions to suppress all legal litigation against Trump.
      Site the bible if you want as long as your version is not misinterpreted.

    2. @Crimdor that was the russian interference, which trump welcomed, trumps campaign did coordinated with russia on other things

      In 2015 and 2016, Michael Cohen pursued a hotel/residence project in Moscow on behalf of Trump while he was campaigning for President.[5] Then-candidate Trump personally signed a letter of intent.
      Senior members of the Trump campaign, including Paul Manafort, Donald Trump, Jr., and Jared Kushner took a June 9, 2016, meeting with Russian nationals at Trump Tower, New York, after outreach from an intermediary informed Trump, Jr., that the Russians had derogatory information on Clinton that was “part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”[6]
      Beginning in June 2016, a Trump associate “forecast to senior [Trump] Campaign officials that WikiLeaks would release information damaging to candidate Clinton.”[7] A section of the Report that remains heavily redacted suggests that Roger Stone was this associate and that he had significant contacts with the campaign about Wikileaks.[8]
      The Report described multiple occasions where Trump associates lied to investigators about Trump associate contacts with Russia. Trump associates George Papadopoulos, Rick Gates, Michael Flynn, and Michael Cohen all admitted that they made false statements to federal investigators or to Congress about their contacts. In addition, Roger Stone faces trial this fall for obstruction of justice, five counts of making false statements, and one count of witness tampering.
      The Report contains no evidence that any Trump campaign official reported their contacts with Russia or WikiLeaks to U.S. law enforcement authorities during the campaign or presidential transition, despite public reports on Russian hacking starting in June 2016 and candidate Trump’s August 2016 intelligence briefing warning him that Russia was seeking to interfere in the election.
      The Report raised questions about why Trump associates and then-candidate Trump repeatedly asserted Trump had no connections to Russia.[9]

      [5] Id. at Vol. I, 67-80.

      [6] Id. at Vol. I, 110-20.

      [7] Id. at Vol. I, 5.

      [8] Id. at Vol. I, 51-54.

      [9] Id. at Vol. II, 18-23.

    3. @Crimdor Mueller did NOT have unlimited powers, he had certain powers he could use in his investigation. Mueller has a broad mandate to determine the course of an investigation, but not an unlimited one. If he decides that something outside the scope of the letter appointing him needs investigating, he would have to ask for permission to expand his probe.

    4. @Crimdor yes there was an end in sight, that is NOT why trump wanted to fire Mueller, he wanted to get rid of him because he did NOT want Mueller finding his crimes. so what if the investigation went into the next election that would mean he did his job well. Yes there is evidence trump and his team conspired with russia

    1. @Jasmany Foch What about the Truth is a delusion to you, do you believe god personally talks to racist 9/11No Planers?

  3. What does it say about the brains of these people who are supposedly educated and titled that they didn’t even consider what type of a thing that number 45 was before they took up his job offer

    1. @Sarah F. 4.2
      It proves that the GOP had been
      Dead for Years, that they were
      Forced into going with Trump even when so many did not want him to be the Republican candidate.
      They were the First to order the creation of the Steele Dossier * and had to drop it when they saw Trump’s connection to his Cult Followers.
      Anything to remain in power!
      * Then, it was picked up and paid for by a wealthy Clinton supporter.

    2. @Sarah F. 4.2
      Good for you! I know there Are good people on the right, it’s the dishonorable people in Congress who bring the Entire GOP down, they
      Are Totally Lacking in Principles and
      Integrity!

    1. @Crimdor Mueller: ‘Donald Trump committed 10 obstructions of justice.’ That’s enough to put your cult leader in prison for life. It’s time to put your big boy pants on, and escape your cult.

  4. #45 WOW…..GOD help us. Who will do the right thing ? Is there anyone willing to hold their vows true?

  5. what difference does any of it make , there’s no accountability much less justice for any politician or government officials anyway. this country is demonstrating what a joke it is to the entire world.

    1. Yeah, so much for that “No man is above the law” BS! Only regular people pay for their crimes in the US! Rich people and powerful politicians get away with murders, literally! All the while poor people get sent to jail for stealing a candy bar at Walmart! What a joke the US justice system is!

    1. Breaking news Biden plans to shut down America’s energy industry. He’s making a deal with China to build windmills and solar panels.
      A non renewable resource.
      Get ready for socialism then communist China will own our country.

  6. And that is how rich and powerful evade justice for their crimes. Just like the emolument charges got tossed too by running out the clock.

  7. Trump doesn’t know what exonerated means just like his daughter doesn’t what compliced means

    1. He does know what it means. He’s intentionally trying to confuse the story and create confusion because he knows some people won’t pay attention and will just listen to what he puts out there. Thats what authoritarians do. I hate him.

  8. We no longer have a country run by intelligent people, they become delusional and very willing to live in an alternate universe

  9. The disgraced former guy has demonstrated he’s capable of doing or saying anything.
    He’s likely to be guilty of everything he’s accused of.
