  1. He’s slowly but surely pushing everyone out of the gov until all that’s left are his sycophants and lackeys.

    1. @Angry Bushnell that won’t happen due to Black Tie Security he has hired. Plus Secret Service protection for what’s left of his unhealthy life.

    2. @davids11131113 do you know that the internet you’re using can look up each year of every modern President charted of number of staff turnover?
      Trump actually has more in 3 years than Obama had in 8.

    3. G L you can’t bully into being president. I know I know killary won the election. Whatever. Keep getting butt hurt. Us Trumpsters are having fun, watching you get so upset. Seeing the dems lose so often, is getting to be the norm. So you have become the entertainment.

    1. @Wilson Dassumpcao Bernie looked like a muppet that was washed in hot water , or an old version of Alfred E Neuman

    1. @Shawn Corbin i dont know about. That, have you looked at yourself in the mirror, i think you should know who you are..

    1. Well, it did work for Clinton when he did it by firing all USus Attorneys so that they would not do their job and hold him to the law. And it is a good thing, he got off of being removed from office even though there is no doubt that he was guilty of high crimes. After all, he was found guilty in a none partisan none political court and he walked away from his crime.

    2. @Wesley Bomar : That comment is Contradictory!
      Ckintin was Impeached for lying to Congress about a Marital Affair!
      Trump Obstructed Congress in a National Security Investigation he Confessed to, Not Once but Twice, and Abused his Power as US President to Extort and Bribe a Foreign Government to Slander and Smear a Political Rival during an Election! 1000 times worse than President Nixon or President Clinton!
      Our National Security was At stake! Trump will be Impeached forever and Ever! President Ckintons Aquittal didn’t matter to Trump and his supporters tbe last 4 years!
      Trumps Aquittal will not either!
      Impeached forever!

    3. @Wesley Bomaryou can state your opinions but then there are the facts… don the orange monkey and his ship of zombie fools……sail on sail on

    1. @liberalthinker noname You’re proving my point.
      You’re unable to articulate your point of view, without demonizing us as evil and racist.
      Your party is about to split in two, between Dem center, and far left/socialist-communist.
      It would be a good thing though, as most other Democratic republics have more than two parties.
      Remember, most who voted for Trump, voted for Obama in the two previous elections.
      So those people suddenly became racists?
      In the words of your hero, Joe Biden “Come on Man!”

    2. Steemit.com >Podesta art collection. John and Tony Podesta. I’m sure everyone knows who John Podesta is. Seth Rich leaked his emails, not Russia. He was murdered immediately afterwards. Take a look and while you’re at it, see who he’s connected to. Then ask yourself why you perceive Trump as the enemy? Comment below only after looking at their art collection please. Dialogue is important!

    3. jason farr – Epstein was a “conspiracy theory” until he wasn’t. Then he “commits suicide” when anyone with a brain knows better and the media has been trying to sweep that whole story under the rug. That’s the tip of the iceberg. John Podesta was right hand man in the Hillary campaign and part of the Obama administration. Ask yourself why Trump has been under constant attack since before inauguration. Hillary Clinton said “ if he wins, we all hang by nooses”. Just look into it. That’s all

    1. @Not PC Principal Because tRump is a self obsessed, incompetent, insecure toddler oligarch that destroys people’s lives except for his base du jour

    2. Christina Cope – You’re not serious are you? You can’t actually believe that everyone that challenges you is a Russian bot. Come on. That’s honestly terrifying! The irony is that people like you, call people like me… stupid. “Keep calm and blame Russia” I guess, right? Look at the pics Christina! How about prove you’re not a “bot”. God you people are astounding!

  2. Sentencing guidelines suggested by prosecutors take into account sentences handed down for similar crimes. They rely on precedents established by years of litigation. Trump has no expertise in preparing such guidelines. And Trump’s record thus far is to ignore precedents. So it is no surprise that he tweeted out his gut feelings on the the proposed sentence for Stone, without realizing that he was wrong in his assessment of a fair sentence. The big surprise is that Barr acted on the tweet. Barr should have the experience and the knowledge as to the proper way to propose sentences for a person found guilty, and should have recognized that his prosecutors followed precedent. Instead, Barr yielded to a president eager to seek revenge on the system and to shield his supporters from lawful punishment. While Trump deserves to be faulted for his unwarranted tweet, it is Barr in this case who failed in his duty to uphold the law.

    1. Barr is a crook and part of past administration’s swamp. Drumpf despite his claims knows nothing. His statement at campaign rallies about loving the uneducated not only applies to his supporters but also to himself. He loves no one as much as he loves himself. Except for maybe Ivanka.

    1. Around 500 have resigned or been fired. Many qualified people who without them in the agency they were employed in weakens the US more. This nation will never recover from the loss of scientists who were working for every citizens benefit.
      Chaos45 website and Forensic News lists everyone.

  3. “MARY, MARY, QUITE CONTRARY.
    WHERE DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW?
    ALL THE”KINGS MEN, PLUS HIS HENCH MEN…
    ALL IN A VERY, VERY CROOKED ROW….

    1. Steemit.com >Podesta art collection. John and Tony Podesta. I’m sure everyone knows who John Podesta is. Seth Rich leaked his emails, not Russia. He was murdered immediately afterwards. Take a look and while you’re at it, see who he’s connected to. Then ask yourself why you perceive Trump as the enemy? Comment below only after looking at their art collection please.

  4. it’s indicative of the extent of the destruction being done to the DOJ by barr and trump that life-long government prosecutors are falling on their swords in protest.

    1. Blade Runner It’s more like the cockroaches are scurrying when the light is turned on them. Another swamp creature. Good riddance!

    2. @Rod Looks like Jessie was running cover for a group of really bad roaches that were covering for the whole DC Swamp. She’s got some real problems. #GITMObound

  5. How many more resignations before the message gets through? These people can’t ALL suddenly be traitors or liars.THIS is a CORRUPT ADMINISTRATION.

    1. Forensic News had an article and website of Chaos45 has kept track of Drumpf’s turnover. It’s quite high compared to previous presidents and dangerous to our security and standing in the World.

    2. @Christina Cope “Quite High?” It beggars belief! I’ve got a figure of 430, which is a mix of sackings and resignations. The Wikipedia list is so long, I gave up counting. Yet Trump just swaggers around as if he’s the coolest babe magnet in history. He’s living in an alternative World. It says something when the Senate voted to restrict his power to declare war on Iran.

    3. Yeah,…They actually can, and are. Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Obama’s crew. I know it rocks your world, and you need meds to cope.
