Fmr. NSA Inspector General On Whistleblower And President Donald Trump | The Last Word | MSNBC


    1. @Bruce Smith Anyone that supports Trump and the ReTrumplicans has no room to talk about anyone being a traitor or a leaker, that crowd has _no_ moral high ground.

    1. @Bruce Smith Obama isn’t president right now, were talking ABOUT the clown in the white house, thought you knew?!?!

    2. @Bruce Smith You are saying Obama should be president again? once we arrest trump for treason and give him the full extent of American justice.

    3. @Shawn Badanjek nothing to arrest trump for. Lots to arrest obama for. Now more than ever, obama must get military tribunal.

    4. @Bruce Smith – Hey, you forgot about Hillary. Lock her up, right? What happened to that promise? Promises made…. Ahem…

  1. wake up Americans……..your leaders are doing things that have not been around since the late 1930s into the 1940s in Europe………….good luck if you let it continue.

    1. @FBI duty : Or whatever you will change your name into next month: I just wanted to say that we all know you are an evil piece of dung that has sold their own country out for a few dollars. That and I think this comment posted by Idylchatter is worthy of repeating many times over…

      “It fits.
      Donald Trump’s ex-wife once said Trump kept a book of Hitler’s speeches
      by his bed

      According to a 1990 Vanity Fair interview, Ivana Trump once told her
      lawyer Michael Kennedy that her husband, real-estate mogul Donald Trump,
      now a leading Republican presidential candidate, kept a book of
      Hitler’s speeches near his bed.

      “Last April, perhaps in a surge of Czech nationalism, Ivana Trump told
      her lawyer Michael Kennedy that from time to time her husband reads a
      book of Hitler’s collected speeches, My New Order, which he keeps in a
      cabinet by his bed … Hitler’s speeches, from his earliest days up
      through the Phony War of 1939, reveal his extraordinary ability as a
      master propagandist,” Marie Brenner wrote.

      Hitler was one of history’s most prolific orators, building a genocidal
      Nazi regime with speeches that bewitched audiences.”

  2. It will come out one way or another… Americans should all be grateful to these brave people that work to make our government better…

  3. We need more whistleblowers to be courageous and come out and tell the truth about this corrupt traitor for president and his administration.

    1. I totally agree, but with the White House putting a choke hold on everything, and any normal administrative would turn over documentations, by law is the Congress right to have. So my next question is, they will continue to do as they please, there has got to be a will and a way to start getting these documents. He’s just the “President”, you don’t have the power you think, only one.

    1. What this whole administration’s activities have lead me to believe is that the impeachment process should not be stratified with the House performing one part and the Senate another, but that a bipartisan committee with equal party representation should take charge over the whole process.
      That would limit any party’s ability to highjack the process.


  4. This is a pretender in the oval office who is so lawless that he uses the DOJ as his personal lawyers. Impeach and remove him now then look at trumps criminal exposure. If this issue is one in which 45 has committed treason or similar anyone who stands with him is complicit.

    1. What good will impeachment do? Let’s assume The House impeaches him….what then? Do you really think Trump will put all his belongings into a cardboard box and just walk away?

    1. Capitalism is organized criminality. They execute people in prisons and in the street. They murder people in Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq and elsewhere. They funded the Iran/Iraq war. They murdered 500,000 Vietnamese etc etc etc

    2. @coolmodelguy

      Yeah okay.
      As I said, none of you come here for actual debates or discussion and I will never have to redeem myself to someone as repugnant as you.

      It’s pathetic that none of you display *facts*
      No *links of proof* to justify your conspiracies but then again they are conspiracies and you’re here to feed into this delusion soooooo..

    3. @Frank Dillard
      What’s a Qtard?
      It’s not about Trump.
      It’s about *TRUTH* and *FACTS*
      Because that is all that matters. Not who or what side you support.

    4. No, the laws are not the problem. The poison intrusion of Big $ upon our elections/govt. is the causative factor. Cleaning up and restoring our govt. of, for and by the People is the purview and responsibility of the People. Move to Amend, American Promise, Trust Vote, Our Revolution, Common Cause just a few of the quality groups of everyday people we can check out/join with.

  5. William Barr and all Trump Appointees should be stripped of their tittle and need to be jailed including judges… If Obama had done any of this shyt the GOP and christian community heads would explode.

    1. The christian communities’ heads should explode. They are using Jesus for hate. When he comes back they will all burn. A fake christian is worse than an atheist sinner.

    2. There’s all acting in positions of appointment by the president and seriously they are acting and their actions are acting in favor of a crooked president who is a dictator and a self proclaimed bullshitionare who has no empathy , ethics or morality so sad that he wants to erase any kind of prosperity of our nation that a half breed president implemented to higher standards of education , environmental protections , public safety and etc. We are a nation of immigrants who are being destroyed by white privilege trying to hold onto their political power and implement laws that are not for the people of the United States Of America. It’s a travesty to see my Beautiful country’s Constitution being defied and practically abolished by the President of Our Country. Constitutional rights are being ignored and destroyed by our Senate and President it’s a sad time in America

    1. he’s been AG before.. 2 or 3 times? and filthy as sticky tar each time before. This time, he is his filthiest.

    2. @Cynthia Cheah yeah once when asked about how his actions this time are damaging his reputation he said ‘everybody dies.’ He literally doesn’t care, and if we can agree his cover-up of Iran Contra was bad, it’ll have nothing on what he does now. He’s a man with no conscience and nothing to lose.

    1. Yes he is.  6 months and he is still hiding the unredacted Mueller report from the people the constitution says should have it.  He secured all documents from Epsteins safe so he could redact any reference to Donald Trump.  He already secured the flight logs of Epsteins underage party flights to redact Trumps name.  Now Barr is working overtime to suppress the whistleblower report.  All to protect his boss Trump.

    2. Get rid Barr and Moscow Mitch first, then we can get Trump, as long as the two traitors stay in office, the longer Trump stays in office

  6. The DOJ is corrupt and is not working for justice nowadays. The DOJ works to protect the corruption within the Trump administration.

  7. The bottom line is:

    The United States Attorney General and the Director of National Intelligence are trump stooges running cover for trump instead of honoring their oath of office and the constitution.

    Thats what trump turned the government into.

    1. The really interesting thing is that Barr is now in a position to blackmail President Dumbo into doing whatever he pleases. Barr could nail Dumbo to the wall at any time. And that, dear friends, is the ultimate form of power, to which many in this administration are addicted. The Republicans in the senate should wake up and realize that _they_ could be next in this little fascist drama. Stupid is as stupid does.

    1. When is enough enough? This “president” is doing daily damage to this country , he needs to be hung like the traitor he is.
