    1. @Daniel Evans One of the numbnuts I see. But as a former USAF Lieutenant General – Senior Commander, go fly a kite.

    2. @AT 1984 I wonder if you are stupid enough to believe that. When you fall for right wing propaganda you wind up making a fool of yourself in public.

    3. @IHCTerra that’s what they do. They come out in the press and brag about how there’s fraud and the mountain of evidence they have but never allege it under oath.

    1. No you have been supporting the grifters and criminals. How have career politicians been able to afford multi million dollar residences? How? There is a laptop out there now that shows how Biden has done it , but the MSM won’t even investigate it. There is a party of the crooks and YOU support it.

    1. I guess we are done with the Russia lie…what a joke. Trump is clean, start looking at Ku Klux Joe….

  1. Using USA treasury as their credit and influence for their own personal gain, bribery and influence for $$$

    1. Following the money trail right back to Russia on the potential ‘bribery-for-pardon’ scheme inside the Trump White House which I believe has something to do with the Russian children of the King with maybe the Russian double Rudy or maybe VP Mike Pence. As far as the con artist King considering a 2024 campaign kickoff on inauguration day for all his following suckers it will most likely come from somewhere outside the USA because I believe the King in the White House will be going to jail for the rest of his life If he remains in the USA after the November Election is over with by past women who he did enjoy, obstruction of justice through the Mueller Report, City & State of New York Taxes & International Contracts on the King through the mob to help him find his wallet & what he owes, even to Russia. If Uncle Joe does become President I believe the head of the IRS (who was appointed by the King) is in deep deep trouble together with the IRS.

    1. Well the wonderful thing about this is that if he tries to pardon his children for any criminal acts he may have also taken part in, it voids the pardon and their ability to plead the 5th. He’d be placing his head in a noose if he tries it.

    2. I guess we are done with the Russia lie…what a joke. Trump is clean, start looking at Ku Klux Joe….

    1. No way Racist Joe won…something is up. China collusion ?????????? We need to impeach. Lets riot and tear down historic statues…does that look familiar Dems

  2. Most corrupt family ever.Hold them accountable and their cronies including Barr with his too little too late comment of no fraud.

    1. @Mary Ratton Really?? Have you examined how Trump was trying to create an authoritarian state, which is one step from a Dictatorship? Revenge firing is a prime example of one who feels he IS a DICTATOR!

    2. Why dont you share with us one incident where Trump and his family are corrupt. I can name 5 of your new leader.

    3. @ernie jazz Jazz head . What type of people Rob a charity.Newsmax your new source of news lies also like .

    1. Will the do nothing congress ensure that no criminal president can ever be able to destroy America going forward.

    1. Answer to your question is because they are guilty! if you are innocent you would not request a any pardons whatsoever!

    1. No way Racist Joe won…something is up. China collusion ?????????? We need to impeach. Lets riot and tear down historic statues…does that look familiar Dems

  3. HOLD ON EVERYONE WE HAVEN’T SEEN ANYTHING YET. THE SHIP IS SINKING AND ALL OF THE RATS ARE JUMPING OFF.

    1. If it’s not its because you didn’t hear BIDEN say that he would go easy on him and that he wants to move on with fixing the Country.

    2. And this is the reason why Rat insists on saying he won, when he knows exactly that he didnt, so he can stay president and keep doing his dirty work and get away with it!.
      What a disgrace to America!!

  4. Legally, isn’t accepting a pardon an admission of guilt?

    Aren’t they basically admitting that they’re criminals?

    1. @brian231 as much as I’d love to see that, it will never happen that a former president goes to prison. Just won’t happen.

    2. If any admission of guilt were to be had that would be at the trial pardons are meant to set people free from prison who are wrongly accused or who the president deems to be fit as served enough time on their sentence I’m not being rude or disrespectful but it’s hard for me to understand that people don’t know the fundamentals of something so important as a pardon!

    1. @eric lee Right, 70 plus million bought into an alternative reality and wannabe dictator. Mental Health is a huge problem in America. Possibly bigger than Covid..

    1. @George Manor Agree & he would look good like that when he comes to the State of Georgia to campaign for the Republicans on the run off Election but there is still time for him to do some bad things you would not see at the Ward store. I believe this month will be critical for Democracy & the November Election so for me I am going to be looking at the breaking news on YouTube especially every day now – who knows what’s going to happen?

    2. @They Live2021 I think trump family and biden family both should go to prison ; it ain’t gonna happen to none of them. As long as they benefit rich , it does not matter. The system is a cycle , blaming parties ain’t gonna solve anything.

    3. No way Racist Joe won…something is up. China collusion ?????????? We need to impeach. Lets riot and tear down historic statues…does that look familiar Dems

    1. He was convinced he would get a second term his insurance screwing the USPS and trying to lock up Biden two weeks before the election without trial

    2. @johnnyboy62 parker totally! I really believe this democracy was saved by his getting covid. God works in mysterious ways…

    3. @KD even though – if you look back to when the Bovine SARS Coronavirus (2) was stolen from the WA CDC facility, you’d actually be keeping up on COVID-19…

    4. Stay in the here and now, because the leadership perspective on happenings and events gets scary enough – when analyzing for intelligence data projections

  5. “No One Is Above The Law” not even POTUS, if he committed a crime he should be persecuted and go to jail.
