  1. Donald Trump wants to investigate the investigators and little he knows, he and his family are not above the law.

    • @Mauricio Anderson <<<< “In the morning,” Mindiyarov said, “you got an email with a lot of links (to internet sites) where you were supposed to post comments. They told you which topics you should comment on and how to write your comments. You just had to play with the words.” He quickly became disenchanted. “The job was very monotonous. There was no creativity in this job. It was very mechanical writing, because nobody cared about your opinion and thoughts. You had to follow the line, what you were told to write,” Mindiyarov said. Soon he realized the robot-like operation was driven by a sinister motive: to promote lies." https://wtop.com/j-j-green-national/2018/09/tale-of-a-troll-inside-the-internet-research-agency-in-russia/

      tongue in your butt hole in 3..2..1

    • @D Mack – #45’s followers *don’t dare* to read Mueller’s report. 📑
      As rational beings, they’d be *unable to deny* what the report SO clearly states (esp. in “Vol. II”)…#45 *tried to cover up* his ‘dealings with Russia’, including #45 asking McGahn *to create false documents* for the WH to ‘proffer’ to investigators. 🤨
      Beyond shameful, *utterly* corrupt…and pretty d*mn ‘criminal’ in its content. 🤔

  3. I’d like to post a pithy message on this video but it’s classified.

  4. What does Kellyanne Commie have to say about this, or Moscow Mitch.

      @LAST CALL No Doubt.

    • @Closeoutracer you people are so funny to read with your little theories and pronouncements of how this person or that is ‘going down’ because they crossed your trump-god. I can just picture you sitting at your little 486 in mommy’s trailer park with your star trek shirts and tinfoil hats… Lisyening for the next “signal” from Q… Like trump wearing a comically oversized suit or something.

      I’m tellin you… You guys really make my night with this garbage! God bless your little hearts.

      @Rob C That’s a FISC/ FISA doc I posted .. you seem slow and uneducated.

  6. The MAGA Man & Moscow Mitch will be livid with this. Good !

    • Closeoutracer | August 2, 2019 at 4:14 AM | Reply

      @Noreb Admirial MIke Rogers .. then head of the NSA found Comey’s violations then worked with FISC court to tighten proceedures do to Political Spying Operative James Comey.

    • @Noreb – The repeated usage of the words “apparently” and “seemingly” in the footnotes mean *they’re ‘allegations’, not ‘facts’* being made *by* whoever prepared the footnotes.
      ‘Conflation’ *and* ‘hyperbole’…aka, ‘standards of the GOTP’.

    • @cynanne yeah i got that but thanks for pointing it out, i dont understand why reading source documents is so hard for sycophants.. This dude claims hes “had this document for 2 years” and has no clue wtf it even says apparently or that it was an extension approval…

    I guess the President doesn’t know about this yet? He’s not rage tweeting about it and going after the DOJ…. Yet.

    • Prashant K.C. | August 1, 2019 at 5:21 PM | Reply

      Anne Collins he did share a video exposing him long before MSLSD Fake-stream Media reported on it!

    • Randy Maatta | August 1, 2019 at 6:27 PM | Reply

      No. This is all a trap to prosecute the traitors from Obama and Clinton all the way down. Over 100K sealed indictments are waiting. Buckle up. You have been lied to for years.

  8. Poor Sean Hannity. He’s been crying about James Comey for over 2 years.

      *_Robert Mueller really is a DOUBLE WHAMMY he is German orgin which means he likes to constantly be called and talked to with genetic greediness along with having a fleshy or spoon shaped nose. ROBERT MULLER IS A GREED MONGER WITH ALL the emotional, attitude, physical and genetic aptitude behind it all. Robert Muller would burn a whole city down for a dollar LITERALLY!!!_*

    Funny how if one of us were to commit multiple crimes,
    we WOULD BE charged on ALL crimes committed which would then be added to our sentence!!

    • @O. B. I guess you didn’t get the second part of the memo. You know the one about bigger fish/crimes to fry.

    • Maybe Bernie? | August 1, 2019 at 7:28 PM | Reply

      You mean like Kellyanne Conway breaking the Hatch Act multiple times?yeah,funny how that works

    • @Donna Hearn “you know the one about bigger fish/crimes to fry”

      Oh don’t worry,…I haven’t forgotten about the sealed indictment for individual -1. 😎

  11. All these clowns are just pawns in a game to keep us talking and focusing on things other than what they are really doing. Never any real consequences for these distractions.

    No doubt this will improve Trump’s mood. 😅

    • Christ Bearer | August 2, 2019 at 1:09 AM | Reply

      @Tessmage Tessera Yep, you’re winning alright. Trump impeached, took back the Senate during an incumbency in 2018, all those Liberal judges appointed, more regulations on business, higher taxes… the left just keeps winning and winning….. oh wait, none of that happened. Nvm.

    • Deborah Romilly : Yeah, we all knew this, MSNBC. Much as the Orange Orifice would love it, they can’t be out and out totalitarians until after the elections

    • Not like “beautiful chocolate cake” would.

  13. John Solomon should get a Pulitzer prize for all the news he has covered!

  14. Debra Jensen | August 1, 2019 at 5:56 PM | Reply

    They weren’t FBI “memos”. It was a personal recollection of Comey’s interaction with Trump and why it was unusual. A memo is something you send to a distribution list. You can still think it was wrong but it wasn’t a “memo”.

    • @David Hay Funny, that was the same reason Barr gave for not prosecuting trump for conspiracy with Russia.

      We call that a ‘coinkeydink’

    • @David Hay Actually I think Barr has bigger fish to fry with regards to Comey.

    • Edwin Mintey | August 1, 2019 at 8:11 PM | Reply

      @David Hay And why go to court if even if you somehow win it will result in a $50 fine?

    • @Donna Hearn The justice department was never interested in prosecuting him. I wouldn’t trust anything any of them said unless they were personally threatening me.

    Thank goodness the IG did not do that stupid thing!

  16. Mimsy Borogove | August 1, 2019 at 6:10 PM | Reply

    It would be a real miscarriage of justice if they’d interpreted Comey’s personal notes as leaking FBI information.

  17. Well the investigation of the investigators is off to a predictably stellar start. Maybe #QAnon can get Scooby and the gang to help. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

      Closeoutracer i keep telling people, the inspector generals report will be very interesting. Can’t wait.

    • Saltponds239 | August 2, 2019 at 7:50 AM | Reply

      @LAST CALL ALL conversations with the President are classified. Comey admitted to taking documents with the SPECIFIC INTENTION of giving them to a friend so they can be leaked. And DOJ says there was NO INTENT? This incident led to the 2-year investigation and he gets a pass?

      @Closeoutracer Larger Felonies? Comey admitted to taking documents with the SPECIFIC INTENTION of giving them to a friend so they can be leaked. And DOJ says there was NO INTENT? This incident led to the 2-year investigation and he gets a pass?

    • Closeoutracer | August 2, 2019 at 9:20 AM | Reply

      @Saltponds239 You obviously haven’t kept up.

  18. the FISA courts OKd the first surveillance of the trump organization when carter page began running the trump election campaign committee of Russia from the ROSNEFT bureau offices inside the kremlin.
    why did trump need a campaign committee in Russia?
    why did trump demand carter page run the campaign committee from the ROSNEFT bureau offices inside the kremlin?

  19. Comey didn’t do anything illegal and Benedict Barr knows he doesn’t have a case.

    I like how the “reporter” said the FBI was “investigating” Trump. Interesting term for an organization that was planting assets into a political campaign running against the preferred candidate of the Director, and others at the top at the FBI.
