    Based on this logic, let’s release all criminals who pleaded guilty under oath.

    • @LORD EXPLOSION MURDER!! DAMMIT! Flynn is not some down and out street kid or mental patient, railroaded into a guilty plea by an overworked public defender or over zealous prosecutor. Flynn had a well funded and enthusiastic defense team.

    The next administration should audit this administration, including barr.

  4. In any sane country Michael Flynn would be in prison for life, for high treason and corruption, and so would William Barr.

      Send Flynn and barr to China, China will shoot them both in the head and charge their families for the bullets. Justice is served. China has a superior justice system compared to the corrupt American system where rich and powerful criminals get off all the time.

    Please just give me break hhhh a criminal trying to save a criminal

  8. Trump and his accomplices rewriting history and breaking the rule of law wherever they can.

  9. Stop calling it ‘alleged abuse of the justice department’. It’s blindingly obvious corruption of the justice department.

    • @Ellyseum LOL. You are scratching around……watch the news this week sweetie. Doesn’t look good. Wait for the Durham report.

    • @R L T Aww you sound butthurt. Newsflash, sweetie, nobody cares about the “Durham report”, and it won’t change the fact that Trump campaign openly colluded with Russia, and was subsequently impeached for trying to strongarm Ukraine into helping them. Now he has more American deaths than Vietnam on his record, and was handed a perfect economy and turned it into the Great Depression 2.0 due to his incompetence. Lost the House in 2018, turned deep red Virginia into a blue state, turned Texas into a toss-up, and the GOP is doing so bad in some states they do not even have a single win. Good luck in 2020!

    • @Ellyseum Biden is a formidable candidate for sure. 4 years well spent. Thanks for that.

      R L T Trump and GOP are scared Biden is 9 points over TRUMP and now TRUMP wants to take his campaign manager to court for him losing in polls, also TRUMP is mad at FOX NEWS because they are starting to put real poll numbers out.

    Trump and his Administration are corrupt to the core. Can’t wait for November!! Vote Blue!!!

    • Most people watching MSNBC and CNN don’t care about truth or justice. Trying to set up a guy who fought for our country just to get trump out of office is unacceptable.

      @GoT fan 2320 Really sad..I can’t believe how many fell for that Russia crap..SCARY…China is the real threat..For 200 hundreds years the Dem use fear and hate for votes. 50 years of the cold war with Russia and Dem politicians using the fact Russia had nukes to sway opinions..Remember Russia and U.S were partners against Hitler saving the world.Do you know Russia and U S are partners is space..U S and Russia have enough nukes to destroy the world over 1000 times.They need to be open with one another.Remember the missile crisis in Cuba. Dem politician knew if they use Russia against Trump the people would freak out..What Obama did weaponizing FBI DOJ CIA to take out an elected president, and a 4 star general because he wouldn’t lie for Obama and spied on Americans using the power of FBI DOJ to set people up is TREASON. Obama Clinton Biden selling out U S to China is the real threat.Far left media that are owned by far left people who admit not liking U S are dividing the country. The U S should have been in charge of pandemic research not China..Again Obama Clinton sold out US to China for personal greed.Fake media is the enemy of the people..If they were honest there would be a lid on corruption

    It’s strange to see the fall of Rome in real time.

    • Charles Cummings Sr | May 10, 2020 at 3:06 PM | Reply

      @kulhuk 7 First, much of Rome’s decline originated with the country’s decline in morals, government corruption and political instability. Second here is an article the outlines Rome’s fall. Let’s hope someone is not debating our fall in the not to distant future.

      @dalight maiso No, but they brushed their teeth with stale urine, for the whitening effect of ammonia. Of course, they weren’t stupid enough to DRINK the stuff.

    • this ain’t no ROme, never was, NEVER will be. Just FYI 🙂

    • @Mo Fungo It aren’t no UGandA nor neither, though we do have a fat narcissist in charge.

    • We are living real live history. It will be very interesting to see how the historians record this behaviour.

      It’s reported that the Pew Research Center finds the world still favours the US but under the current administration, it has lost its credibility and leadership worldwide.

    • Sandra Ramshaw | May 8, 2020 at 7:16 AM | Reply

      Your right Perry perrie ,’we ‘ do think the US overall is fine but your current administration definitely has to go ASAP there is no bottom where they are concerned they just keep on digging

    • @Sandra Ramshaw from UK , i see US has a corrupt government, where you pay a representative to vote for your interests over the countries. the president can and does appoint incompetent people to positions of power, the judicial system is a joke, they jail far more than any other country. the police force are armed thugs who shoot first ask questions later, the education system is woefully underfunded, you go bankrupt because you are ill.

      Trump was NOT elected. He highjacked the election & Russia helped put him there. Idky everyone seems to forget this very important FACT.

    trump is a crook. Im not surprised about anything he or his cronies are doing to this country.

      J M And yet so many people want to hand the government more power though socialism and abolishment of 1st and second amendments (and other amendments). Makes no sense.

      And then do something about it.

      @stee with2ees thanks for caring. We are suffering the worst case scenario right now. It sucks really bad. Unfortunately there are a lot of Americans that just don’t care about how many of us are going to die due to our fed gov bunglings.

    • stee with2ees | May 10, 2020 at 2:12 AM | Reply

      @James Evans appreciate the reply but I know how easy it is for me to sit here and make platitudes as regardless of how genuine they are its you guys that are suffering. I am sure that there are a lot of people that do not care but so much of your country seems to be so subject to polarisation that those exposed to right wing media may ultimately be victims first and foremost of the outrageous misinformation presented by the WH admin.

      Regardless of whether one identifies as blue, red or purple you all deserve better than the crooks and liars (which, as awful as Trump and his cronies are exist on both sides) who see you all as nothing more than second class citizens.

      I know you are an amazing country with some of the most capable and amazing people – it is just a shame so few of them are elected to office to represent this.

      Stay safe and stay well!
