    The depth of the swamp is immeasurable!

  2. On February 21, 1975, Nixon’s Attorney General John N. Mitchell, was found guilty of CONSPIRACY, OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, and PERJURY and sentenced to prison for his role in the Watergate break-in and cover-up, which he dubbed the “White House horrors.” As a result of the conviction, Mitchell was sent to prison and disbarred for life from the practice of law.

      And in Trumps case, it was a scandal ridden Obama administration that ILLEGALLY spied on a presidential candidate by using a faked FISA warrant and a third party contractors (paid) assessment that it was Russia that “hacked” emails from the DNC server …which the FBI did NOT examine for themselves. FBI relied on Crowdstrike, who LIED. Where is the server? That’s WHY Trump mentioned Crowdstrike and server during the Ukrainian phone call.

      John Brennan stated that he had “high confidence” the Russians had “hacked” the DNC.
      High confidence means it’s a “best guess”, and “high confidence” is also what they said they had when they sold the “WMD” lie that dragged us into 18 years of Middle East wars, during which many military contractors and politicians got very rich, as American soldiers died and American Treasury got drained…and all that mess was based upon a WRONG “high confidence” assessment…

      They’re simply trying to cover up the fact that they were equipping the terrorists as they professed to be fighting terrorism, specifically in Syria. Thats WHY Obama did NOTHING regarding his own RED LINE that was CROSSED. It was NOT Syria that crossed the red line, it was HRC’s State Departments doing. Remember Benghazi? Many Americans do. That’s a big part of WHY Hillary lost the election.

      That’s why Hillary wanted to “drone” Julian Assange, the journalist who leaked her email. That’s also WHY the cover up by the FBI conveniently blamed Julian Assange, a journalist, as a Russian Spy agent. And then blamed Roger Stone, who did NOT work with Wikileaks.

      Assange was NOT working with Russia. Assange was not working with Roger Stone. That’s just the lame excuse they are pushing to cover up the murder of DNC staffer, Seth Rich, in order to cover up that Seth Rich leaked DNC information from INSIDE DNC to Wikileaks… because the DNC ditched Bernie in the ActBlues donation switch…where Bernie supporters money (and primary) went to support HRC instead.
      The DNC is again, working against Bernie. That much is obvious.

      There is Zero evidence the Russians were to blame for the DNC server LEAK. That lie came from DNC, not an official legitimate DOJ assessment of the allegedly “hacked” server. Because it was a LEAK from inside, NOT a “hack”.

      This entire RussiaGate scam has been built on hearsay, faked FISAs, former administration members “high confidence” without hard “evidence”, and based upon paid opposition reports that have already been rejected as unverifiable salacious drivel designed to affect scandalous headlines to smear a duly elected president who merely upset an establishment swamp monster because voters are sick of the corruption, useless war, and graft of US Treasury.

      HRC couldn’t even concede on election night. She made John Podesta face the crowd, instead. Stop buying their garbage.

      PS) I knew the Watergate Committee chairman.
      Anyone who compares Trump to Nixon is severely misinformed by the lying political pundits who pretend to be experts and journalists as they desperately attempt to oust Trump because he’s exposing their corruption and lies.

      If there is WaterGate comparison to be made here…Obama did what Nixon did…but worse, because Obama did it to cover up his administration’s own Iran Contra…on OPIOIDS.
      #WalkAway ✌️

    • @Wild Tangent I am sorry but the FISA review cleared it.

      @DivineHeresy 1000x worse than stealing money from sick children and disabled veterans? I didn’t think there was anything lower than that, let alone 1000x worse. Js.

      @Rumple Stiltskin How about dropping bombs on thousands of african children in Libya and destroying that country to the point where there are now open air slave markets in the city squares and it’s all run by warlords? Obama called libya his greatest disaster. Imagine all he had done is used money from his charity to fund his campaign. Stop pretending to care about children. All you care about is the hate in your heart.

    • TheSquad plus1 : how come Barr never get charge with contempt of the House ?

    Barr needs to be impeached or resign…..stained judicial system.

    A sociopath is sitting in the White House and there’s only one thing to do. Vote him out, and his entire crew. And then send them to jail.

    The response from the DOJ says Barr is going to REFUSE the judge’s order and any subsequent decision that would not be in their favor. Thus this will end up in SCOTUS purgatory. Justice is being slowly suffocated and Barr is the guy with the pillow.

    Hence, another reason those top attorneys resigned amid him placing his finger yet again on the scales of justice in the Roger Stone decision. CORRUPT.

      @Kevin Hatcher
      If the more news stations/outlets echo the same heinous reports on Trump, the more likely that said reports are true.

      However, you know this and still you probably ascribe truth to only Fox and maybe One America.

  10. Barr doesn’t care about his credibility. He has shown that he will lie for 45, which alone should disbar him. But Barr doesn’t care. I can only fathom that he is bought and paid for by Trump.

    • Or he was promised some top oligarchy spot where he could bend the world to his twisted way of thinking. Only Trump surpasses him in chuzspah.

    • Rumple Stiltskin | March 8, 2020 at 4:13 PM | Reply

      He”advised” G.H.W. Bush to pardon the six indicted co-conspirators in the Iran Contra scandal, to keep them from testifying against the Reagan/Bush cabal. He also refused to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Iraqgate affair, for the same reason. He was angling for a SCOTUS appointment back in the 80s, he didn’t get it despite his corrupt protection of those administrations. Now he’s back for another try. With Moscow Mitch and his Rublepublican led Senate that loves to rubber stamp judicial nominees, it’s quite possible Barr will get it this time.
      Long live R.B.G.

      That’s 45-3..lol forever impeached 😀

  11. “A man without character or ethical compass will never find his way,” We were warned from the Senate floor. “There is nothing more corrosive to a democracy than the idea that there is no truth…. Truth matters, right matters, but so does decency. Decency matters.” TRUMP does not reflect who we are.”

      I think you are spot on. Which only leaves one more question. I think it’s exactly who the base is. Because the alternative is to think that there is people this stupid in our country and they are able to vote. And they cant follow a conversation?

    The Injustice Department is CORRUPT and an enemy of the republic. The country has been taken over by a confluence of evil and the PEOPLE don’t care.

    They’re afraid Barr is going to take down lots of top people in government and that includes judges

    • 15k DOW 2022 | March 8, 2020 at 7:31 AM | Reply

      Bob Pen how do you explain Loretta Lynch and her tarmac meeting and the contemptible Eric Holder (contempt of congress charge upheld)? DJT along with Bill Barr are only correcting the ship that’s been taking on ballast since the Obama criminality team were ruining American institutions like the office of the president, the AG’s office, and the directors of intelligence like Comey, Clapper, Brennan and McCabe. Or how about the vastly misused office of VP Biden… Quid pro Joe.

    • @15k DOW 2022 why would I have to explain it, obviously they weren’t charged with a crime. They certainly wasn’t putting crack cocaine on the streets of LA to back door a democratic Congress. Oliver North did bye selling illegal drugs to buy arms to Supply the contras in South American. What Criminal Enterprise on Earth can be as stupid as this Trump White House a bunch of pathological Liars incapable capable of ever telling the truth tweet and talk too much. Remind you of Hogan’s Heroes Donald Trump starring as Colonel Klink Heroes.

    • Michael Carpenter : before Barr do more harmful things, Corona will pay him a visit , happy Corona Barr 😀 when don the con is going to fire Corona ?

    • shonenlad one | March 8, 2020 at 10:36 PM | Reply

      Michael Carpenter – Listen to yourself. Barr is in no position morally to “take down” anyone. I suggest you go read up on Barr’s handling of the Iran Contra scandal? Barr is one of Trump’s chief swamp cretins. He shouldn’t be allowed to hold that office.

  14. Remember the justice department saw no cause to act over the Ukraine call which lead to the impeachment of Trump. Barr’s lack of justice department has no credibility

    • Gscalenut
      And what’s brazen is that the same thing that Trump was impeached for, after he was acquitted by the Senate, he promptly continued to do the same thing, but this time out in the open. Giuliani has gone to Ukraine to again try to find dirt on Biden’s son, even if it’s manufactured dirt, they don’t care.
      Can you imagine what the novice president of Ukraine is going through? He may be concerned that if he doesn’t come up with dirt for Trump, Trump could get re-elected and ignore him and Ukraine. Putin can then continue his attack on the country, knowing the potus will not help, or help much.
      However, if he’s force to make stuff up, reluctantly so, Biden could become President, and I’m sure the poor man is worried about that also.
      This is a perfect situation of being caught between a rock and a hard place.

    Give the judge a break. The judge needed to wait until the case came up in court before a measured response was appropriate. There are millions of Americans who have some stake in America’s legal system. It’s been heartbreaking to witness these arrogant bozos making mincemeat of something that we’ve fought to keep clean and just. It would be sweet to have Barr find himself in the same fix as Mitchell with loss of license and loss of freedom.

  18. What do you expect from the FOX, in The Hen House!

    Bill ( Fred Flintstone) Barr was appointed by Dictator Trump as his personal YES MAN!!!

  20. Better late than never I guess but I don’t get how it takes this long to come to that conclusion. When all the damage is done smfh.
