    Glenn Kirshner is awesome. He does his best to help us understand what’s going on with all the illegal activities and blatant abuses committed in the country

  2. You can see how Trump is being pushed and manipulated from people like the Texas AG. It is deep corruption here, not just one man. What about the donors! to GOP!? Are they dictating all of these moves to our law enforcement behind the scenes? Sick.

    Trump has destroyed more lives and livelihoods by not governing and making sure his kids are raking as much influence and monies into the Trump Dynasty.

  4. This is showing the rest of the world that America is impotent when they can’t remove a raving lunatic from office.

    • It is about fear and lots of money (blood money probably from Russia) Good thing these traitorous Congressmen weren’t our founders. The Congress except for a few Democratic women have a spine. Recently we find out they knew about Trump and the Russians stealing the 2016 election. The head of FBI and CIA told Them.

      @Judy Florida I’ve said if Russia can hack highly classified agencies how is it they couldn’t rigged the 2016 . I believe once we found out how they did it we made every effort to see it wasn’t done in 2020 election that why Trump fired Chris Crebs because he made more difficult to hack our recent election and trumps plans for a 2nd term failed .

    • It really is. We might as well all collectively roll over and show the world our bellies.

    • That’s the problem with the GOP Moscow Mitch McConnell. TRUMP was a profitable client for a change, and they milked this cow for all he was Worth to them and the Oligarchs. Now to over turn our election? The Oligarchs have the last say in the matter, hey if you’ll take Out a president you’ll turn over elections the verdict hasn’t been Read yet.

    • @omi god we’ll see January 5th Right? This is Trump we’re talking about here.

    80 % of his pardons are personal aqaintences or bootlicking sycophants.

    • @True Response My little snowflake, you are melting all over the floor. We had an election. Trump challenged the results as is his right. Trump has not been successful in the courts, losing 59+ court cases because he has no evidence. You need evidence to claim fraud. I am sorry that it is hard for you to believe he lost but Trump lost the election. Now he is trying to overturn Democracy and install himself as a dictator. I have a problem with that. Why don’t you?

    • @True Response another brainwashed Retrumplican, Trump is a loser get over it. You need help get yourself deradicalise and come back into the real world you plonker.

    • @Chris Hill 👍
      Trump lost, now he wants to use force to overthrow the election. I have a problem with that also.

    • @True Response so, you condone using military force to overthrow an election.
      I got news for you, the military defends the constitution, not Donald Trump.

    • yep; and all the while you have impoverished trump voters literally in tears crying on limbaugh’s show about how “he was the only person the in world who cared about me”

  6. A pardoned person loses his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, and thus can be compelled to testify fully under threat of a perjury charge, which would be a new, unpardoned crime.

      trump will totally get squeezed for obstruction of justice after january 20 at noon.

      even if he pardons himself, the pardon only covers until jan 20 at noon.

      i hope they put him in a freezer with a toe tag.

    • But they can tell lies and ignore questions.

    • as Glenn pointed out on his channel…yeah but they can say it might incriminate them in some undisclosed or state crime to tell the whole truth

  7. Yep. Trump pushes for the executions of people who would not normally be executed and pardons people who probably should be executed.

    • @Shelley Ross yes because they didn’t break any laws! They were targeted by your fake news friends and Democrats!

    • @Jack Eagle yes like he was guilty of Russian collusion!! Right! All of you are delusional!

    • @Cisco de la Vega BS.

    • @Cisco de la Vega If Trump had shut up and gone away quietly, there was a chance that people would have been so happy just to be rid of him they would let it go. Now with his attempts at sedition and a coup he will have to be brought to justice. He has got to be one of the stupidest wannabe dictators ever.

    • Bill Clinton pardoned domestic terrorists.

    Whoever has the $ . That’s who gets a pardon .

    • dominick lucido | December 23, 2020 at 4:44 AM | Reply

      Black water buddies. They literally will do illegal assasinations for him skipping the trial process in places where they can like less “dense and liberal” parts of Oregon

    • he even ordered a white man killed because he defenced a black BLM supported, their is nothing written that stops the pardon being revoke

    • It’s funny because if Erik Prince didn’t look bad already, he does now.

    • michael huppertz | December 23, 2020 at 3:16 PM | Reply

      @Dani Banani Why, do you really think the bribery for the illegal pardon was that high?

  9. He pardoned a man that killed a woman clutching her child… let that sink in 😐

  10. No one should be able to pardon criminals without justification, especially a corrupt criminal like Trump. If a felon can’t vote or buy a gun, a felon should not be pardoned without legal justification.

  11. Donald Trump is actually going to be stark raving mad. The rump is in the middle of a full blown episode of OCD. In addition to all the other faults rump has like sociopathy and narcissisms and racism, rump also has OCD. His subconscious mind will simply not stop demanding he remain in power. Of course, this is impossible, now, but you can’t tell that to your subconscious. Irresistible force meeting an unattainable goal…..the only possible result is raving dementia for the victim

  12. Glenn Kirchner would make a great Attorney General!

    Glenn Kirschner would make an outstanding attorney general.

  14. *”Morally wrong”* Haha, those 2 words don’t exist in that fascist’s vocabulary.

    • No, this is not just fascist.
      Trump is a straight up sociopath or psychopath.
      Fascists are scary, but they have their own morals and rules.
      Trump has none and just surrounds himself with fascists who take advantage of that.

    • Melinda Bloodworth | December 23, 2020 at 4:36 PM | Reply

      Fascist? Ok so in this Bill illegal citizens get $1800 but legal American citizens get $600. Explain to me where Trumps demand for Americans first is fascist? Over a trillion dollars is going directly overseas if this Bill passes. Fascinate me here and explain to me how that makes Trump fascist Or a sociopath or psychopath. $600 will barely put food on the table for four people for a month.

    • Of drums and chords | December 23, 2020 at 6:18 PM | Reply

      @Melinda Bloodworth You are off topic. This bill is one subject, and on this, Trump is on the same page as Bernie Sanders. I’ll give him that.
      Is Trump a fascist ? Not yet, but he could easily turn into one. Actually, his whole behavior is pathological. Thinks he’s a genius, uses people, then throws them away, insults people in public, this guy is more a sociopath.
      But he has a lot of reactionary ideas, and he’s clearly on the alt right.

      Psychology of fascism has been studied in the last century. Trump has an indeniable charism and can manipulate crowds. I think his supporters, the one who follow him blindly, seem to be hypnotized. While it’s so easy to check his affirmations, and see he lies very often. And with all his claims about electoral fraud, without any evidence found, he doesn’t only lie.
      It’s delusional. I won big time, with 7 millions less votes ? the guy is nuts.

  15. Passion. Glenn’s passion for justice is inspiring.

    Don’t hold back, Glenn! 👏🏼 “Justice Matters!”

    How can even Trump’s most loyal fans possibly justify him Pardoning those Murderers of all those Iraqi Citizens.. they call themselves the Party of Family Values..and Pro Lifers…. Sickening.

    • Kathleen Martin | December 23, 2020 at 4:37 PM | Reply

      @Bill Trudel So True.. BUT Sir.. We showed them.. with the help of many lifelong Republicans, Independents and First Time Voters alongside Democrats we managed to retire Donald Trump.. Every Race , Skin Color, Sexuality and Spirituality of Folks Count.. Mr Trump and his Bigoted cronies at least are no longer in control.. and that is a GREAT thing..

    • @Kathleen Martin Republicans are no better. Lifelong republicans are even worse.

    • @Kathleen Martin You’re forgetting that the Repubs enabled trump.

    • Rich white lives matter

    • Kathleen Martin | December 23, 2020 at 10:05 PM | Reply

      @Bill Trudel Sir..I was referring to the fact that at least for this specific Election so many Republican Voters did Vote for Mr Biden.. In this specific Election they put Country over Party as did many Independents..

  18. What we are seeing is that an out of his mind President who cares for nothing but himself can do massive damage to America. He has taken a wrecking ball to the integrity of the electoral system, driven massive holes in the legal system, consigned tens of thousands to an early grave by denying covid existed and by delaying urgently needed covid relief funding he is making sure millions of Americans will have the most miserable Christmas in memory with many of them facing destitution in the New Year. The sooner America sees the back of this wannabe tyrant the better.

  19. Rump will close down the gov’t as one of his last tantrums.
