Doug Jones Seen As Leading Contender For Biden's Attorney General Nominee | Craig Melvin | MSNBC


  1. …Its lucky for old Trumpy that the election was rigged otherwise he would have ended up without any votes at all…

    1. @allen benjamin You must be getting your info from Alex Jones and/or Fox. Lets try again; lost 40 suits in 6 different states. You may want to research a little more.

    2. @allen benjamin It has zero chance. The filing if not from a state AG would get the lawyer brought up on charges of frivolous lawsuits. I suggest you read Scotus blog…

    3. @Grim Reefer Nope. Straight off the SCOTUS BLOG!!! The suit isn’t going anywhere. BTW, I voted all blue. I do like to keep everyone informed.

    4. @allen benjamin I guess we are allies then. I also voted BLUE all the way down. I am looking forward to the day Donald is gone!!!!

    1. We need Schiff in the house he’s a leading voice in the democratic party house delegation, But because Sen. Jones will no longer have his job next month he’s a great choice

    2. @Rocky you are correct, Doug Jones will have absolutely no problem getting confirmed because Republicans know they don’t have to worry about Doug Jones holding them responsible for anything . im not for someone to unfairly persecute Republicans, But Biden completely loses my support with Doug Jones as AG, America has stepped away from holding those in power to a higher standard and we all will suffer because of that.

    3. @The King Maker I do hope a very big spot light will be brought upon the enablers and the criminals. The whole world needs to be shown what a circus has been running the US government. Even as we speak do a research on to who’s in charged of the pentagon right now….

    4. @Clint I agree, which is why im skeptical of Doug Jones as AG. Those in power, must be held accountable regardless of political party, when they are not we all lose and the foundation of democracy is undermined.

    1. @Think about it
      I’m so proud of you… you learned to cut and paste troll. Atsa big boy!

      ударь меня

    2. @Think about it I get you’re just a foreign propagandist troll (probably the same one) but when you make fun of 280,000 dead Americans your false narratives stop working. Obama/Biden admin declared a national emergency when there were 20 _cases_ of H1N1 because they were competent, and listened to the experts. Zero deaths at that time, even though you lie about that too. So not only is your joke sick, you’re wrong about your facts. All you’ve done is point out how much of a failure Trump has been – and he was even GIVEN the play book. And he ignored it. You’re doing a great job showing how much better off we are with Biden. Keep it up.

    3. @Benjamin Berlinsky the crimes Cohen is serving time for this day… start with. You think Cohen stole tRump’s money and gave them to Stormy just because he was in love with the draft doger? What school did you attend to, to get the “extremely naive” PhD? (Some say naivity and st…u ty go hand in hand, you are a proof of that)

  2. Other countries provide financial support to their citizens and encourage masks and to stay at home. The Government provided financial support allows people to continue living, paying their bills and the rent/mortgage. The US of A does absolutely nothing for their citizens. SHAME SHAME SHAME!!!

    1. They’re going to have the bring in the guys in the hazmat suits to disinfect for COVID…and god knows what else.

  3. He went after white-nationalists so it should be easy to go after the Trump administration for their illegality.

  4. C’mon, we gotta make Donnie get real twitchy so he will bolt for Moscow … he should nominate Adam Schiff or Cyrus Vance.

    1. Doug Jones is as bad a choice of ag as Barr is. Sure he will be easily confirmed, but only because Republicans know they dont have to worry about Jones holding them accountable. I completely abandon my support for biden with Jones as AG. The biggest mistake that America has ever made is abandoning the idea that those in power are to be held to a higher standard. Just as Bill Barr has abandoned that belief on one extreme, Doug Jones will abandon it on the opposite extreme, borh equally detrimental to the rule of law in this country.

  5. I don’t know who officially makes those decisions but the Trump administration needs to see what accountability looks like when it’s staring them in the face.

  6. Crying Trump says I lost the election, but I am going to make America Pay for this loss, and I have Moscow Mitch to back me up

  7. Supreme Court just shut down Trumps Pennsylvania coup.. to block certification of PA election results, When will he just go away and shut up, Thank you Jesus!
