  1. True, he’s so bankrupt he’ll sell all the secrets. Trump must be charged and locked up for good otherwise US is at imminent risk. Immediately his authority and power should be curtailed.

    • @Alan aka FANG I’m not that wrong. the child just doesn’t want to accept! 🤗 I can also wait until December 14th. Then it definitely is. 🎶

    • @ha ,-zi the fact is that you aren’t right buddy .. but enjoy your fairytale 🙄😂

    • @Alan aka FANG latest findings! Covid survivor will have risk to suffer from psychiatric disorder. No wonder Trump is behaving as such.

    • @Alan aka FANG ask him by yourself. He will show you maybe or maybe not. Maybe you can accept others minds.

      @Alan aka FANG go look in the mirror no need to go further you’ll find ignorance 🤣🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣

  2. This President has committed Treason – He’s all about putting dollars in his pocket at the expense of National Security.

  3. I think he did that second week he was installed , in the meeting with Russians in the oval office

  4. Unnecessary drama be sure to thank your Republican Senate for this nonsense he should have been removed after impeachment

  5. trump is so vindictive that he probably will reveal state secrets.

  6. … to the highest bidder.

    • Putin

    • @Dan Renolds SAUDI & TURKEY (Turkey will be first because President of Turkey pressure him 2 years in row)
      Saudi (The prince has him by the balls:Kashoggi killing), and Trump investment ( price gave him money but Trump used for personal investments- in oil, or shady companies)….watch this closely, it will come out …soon (if someone suddenly “die”)

  7. Unfortunately, keelhauling is no longer available… (stem to stern variant would be preferred)… Perhaps solitary (nocomm.), for life, at Ft. Leavenworth.

  8. Article 25 NOW! Too bad they’re all in on it!

    • If only Dems had Senate Majority he would have long gone

    • *donald trump is compromised even before the election of 2016. He will sell any secrets to foreign powers at the highest bid.*
      *Prepare for a coup and attempt to dictatorship.*

  9. The US people elected a reality TV personality and con man as their President. Is this a surprise.

    • @V Sohn It really is sad and disheartening that this country holds so many bigots, racists and people who want this fascist psychopath in office. Who don’t care about the incredibly obvious corruption and incompetence. God help us in 2024. We will probably need to do this all again.

    • @Who am I ? No one! @mjs1231 the way you pronounce that is bool-sheet !

    • @Joe Schofield mate, what about the people he has seriously hurt financially, such as those defrauded by his ‘university’ and multiple bankruptcies, eg AC casino? He’s a grifter and always has been!

    • It has been unbelievable for the last 4 years….

    • Guess that explains why they were dumb enough to also elect an accomplished-nothing career-politician with cognitive decline.

  10. Let’s not forget Jared Kushner, he’s the same ilk.

  11. Trump’s legacy: a traitor to the United States. He has no loyalty to the country he swore to defend and to uphold the Constitution. He will be remembered as a traitor.

    • @Carlos Cruz Why is Obama still breathing then??

    • @jeremy smith He brought them home dummy. Try again.

      ​@Carlos Cruz I’m thinkin’ that being hung from a tree would be poetic justice. The electric chair would be entertaining but the gunshots of a firing squad and my PTSD don’t get along so well together. If they were all hung from trees we could make a day of it with food trucks and games for the kids. They could win a little Trump doll with a little noose around its neck. It would be a souvenir they would cherish for years to come. Outside of a tree hanging though, why not turn it into a major televised event? They could build a scaffold on a performance stage where musical acts would perform throughout the day, bands like The Orange Pekoe Teabag Band, Green Day, Springsteen, The Chicks and The Rolling Stones. Every hour on the hour, the band steps aside while a traitor is slow walked up the steps and onto the stage and onto the scaffold where a totally naked Lady GaGa smiles for the camera as she places the noose around each of their necks, every hour, on the hour, one at a time. Of course, talking about poetic justice, the closing act of the evening would certainly HAVE to be Trump being hung while the Stones played You Can’t Always Get What You Want with a naked Lady Gaga dancing side by side with Mick Jagger, havin’ a ball.

    • trump is not only a traitor but is the leader of a third of America’s population.
      All traitors. And… rightwing extremist terrorists militias who initiated nearly all violent incidents.
      I fear there will be blood in all of America and America’s foreign enemies will take full advantage of it.
      America could succumb to her own pre-existing condition of racism.

    • @Commonman481 Trump is only in for 4 more years then his Son gets a turn. 🙂

  12. He was revealing secrets while he was IN office. He can’t keep a secret, he’s the worst kind of bragger. Everything he knows he blabs for gain.

    • @skaybaltimore How is Brennan responsible to Trump’s indiscretions? He was not part of the administration. Whatever happened before nov 2016 did when 45 was a private citizen. Brennan has been very vocal throughout 45 administration. 45 went as far as taking Brennan’s security clearance away.

    • @Helene Flamand He shirked his responsibility to be vocally opposed to Trump’s lunacy. He’s nothing but a media-sponsored talking head.

      @ramsey robert Once, that we know of, at least. I sincerely operate under the theory that if tRUMP knew if, then, Putin knew it. And, if there was something that Putin had a desire to know about, he could send his groupee on an errand to find it out.

  13. But he’s not the president anymore, he’s a private citizen. If he reveals secrets, lock him up for treason

      @MJ MK trump won’t be president, he is done, HE LOST

    • @MJ MK Not fecking OK… He’s a lunatic with an agenda that is only associated with himself… You, Me and the rest of the world will be his best mate until we say No… In the meantime, he’s going to try to hold a coup… so say goodbye to your right to vote for who you would like to take on the role of President of the United States… You’re in for a world of bruises and you’d better love Kim Jong Un as much as Trump does. Dictators come in because people with the mindset of yours give them the roads through which they walk. You can tell your Grandchildren while they are under a Trump family dictatorship that you gave your rights to a democracy away

    • @MJ MK ok

    • @MJ MK ok

    • Hes still president until January weak mind. Then he will have another 4 years. Then his son will be in. :))

  14. He should not be pardoned., can that be revoked??

  15. Who’s to say he hasn’t been revealing state secrets ALL ALONG.

    • @David Goldman Nobody is to say. They are not like Trump. But maybe there was something suspicious about 9-11.

    • @Eric Woolsey This isn’t “news”. They’re just having a discussion. It’s funny how people don’t know the difference. Trump has played you. The BIGGEST liar is Donald Trump. I would have spied on Trump too. I would have thought why does he want to be president? This “businessman” all of a sudden wanting to run for office? I would have wanted to know who was backing him. Who is he connected with, etc.

    • @Occam’s Razor Love one…with my hamberder.

    • @Chuck Anya And…?

    • @President Elect Biden – fan account I bet it does (joke).

  16. You know, I think he is right. What could we do to prevent that??? Let me think… Oh, I know — LOCK HIM UP!

    • If he’s smart which we all know he isn’t, he would run to Russia and seek asylum while still the president. Because no American can touch him while still holding the seat of office. Soon as January 20, 2021 comes he will lose all immunity, and he knows this all too well.

    • Unless you locked him away in solitary confinement secrets could still come out. However if he were to be identified as a clear and present danger to the safety of the United States, it is possible that one or more US intelligence services might sanctioned him in other more permanent (though politically unpopular) ways. That is if the courts didn’t get to him first, and convict him for treason… which of course has a death sentance as well.

    • You do know he will probably won reelection right? have you not kept up with the election? arizona is going to Trump, pennsylvnia will likely flip. NC Alaska Trump. Then Mochigan, Wisconsin. Nevada, and Georgia can go either way

    • @Mr Sir You do know you are using Russian grammar right, comrade?

    • @B C a typo makes me russian. Only a liberal thinks i can identify as whatever i want

    Just a bit of encouragement and he will tell every thing to everyone.

    Well, youre the CIA guy: sounds like you got a job to do.

  19. What an absolute train-wreck. Just like an abusive partner, it’s almost impossible to make them leave without intervention.

    • Exactly. I made this comparison before in a comment section. The most dangerous time to deal with an abusive partner is when you finally decide to leave them.

    • I’ve said all along. He will be his most dangerous after the election is calked. Whether he won or lost. He would treat our country like scorched earth.
