  1. Most corrupt president EVER.

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

    • @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.

    • The bleeding heart, cheating liberals are now desperate to keep those illegal votes. 🍿😆🍿Not gonna happen!

      @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.

    Because they’re grifters and criminals. Plain and simple.

      @No Name Bless your heart.

    • 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.

    • Roberto Alvarez | December 2, 2020 at 10:09 PM | Reply

      @bug 9523 Bless your heart.

  3. Ummm…because they’re all serial criminals and grifters?

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

    • 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.

  5. Pardon should be
    : to relieve of a penalty improperly assessed.

    • 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.

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

    • @Think about it I bet you look at a turd in a toilet and think, “mmmm! Looks good!”

  6. 🏴☮️✌Screw Moscow Mitch McConnell and the “Let them eat cake” Republicans.

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

    • @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!

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

    • Willingson Green | December 2, 2020 at 12:31 PM | Reply

      America do not let trump’s lawyer – Barr fool you. He lacks credibility.

    • @Emily Curewitz is Hunter Biden any better than them?

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

  8. If this is allowed then the Presidency has a green light to become a criminal enterprise.

  9. WHY WOULD YOU GO THROUGH SO MUCH TO GET A PARDON IF YOU WERE INOCENT ? ENOUGH SAID ! 🎤

  10. I think the fact that he even feels the need to entertain the idea, speaks volumes…

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

  12. Donald Trump thinks that when he walks away on January 20th, that’s the end of it.

    It isn’t.

  13. Why Would Trump’s Kids Need ‘Pre-Emptive Pardons’?
    One big crime family!

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

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

    • @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.

    • 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!

    • @Christopher Colon That’s funny! I hope it’s warm outside.

  15. The lights have been turned on and the roaches are scattering.

  16. Presidents should not be able to pardon family

    That’s corruption at the highest level

    • @Walter Dayrit What??? Who are you.

    • @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?

    • @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.

      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😉

  17. If they need pre-emptive pardons, you know they KNOW they committed crimes.

    • 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.

  18. And the rest of the World look at the US in absolute bewilderment.

  19. Just imagine the crimes Trump would commit in a second term given he wouldn’t worry about re-election.

    • johnnyboy62 parker | December 2, 2020 at 1:41 PM | Reply

      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

    • Duane Drouillard | December 2, 2020 at 2:25 PM | Reply

      Scary

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

    • @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…

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

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