    Haven’t we known this for years?

      – just us 14 people who pay attn.

    • MAGA… Manipulated American Gullible Aholes hate FACTS. Facts Always Confuse Trump Supporters… They will deny their birth if it wasn’t for a natural occurrence. And let us real Americans remember… They breed 🤦‍♀️🤪😜🤦‍♀️

    • Knowing it and proving it are two different things. A mob boss like Trump keeps himself well-insulated from the crimes done on his behalf by leaving no paper trail and letting his lackeys, lickspittles and yes-men take the fall.

      Of course, but while DJT was in office it was suppressed by his appointees and cronies for years. Now there is clear evidence!

      @D.A. Oh yea you sound stupid 😂

  2. We “knew” in our 💟s.
    Way back in 2016.

    Its so strange how Trump can just walk away from all of the stuff he did, like nothing happened……

    • @Michael Morton name one.

      The eyes keep blinking faster and faster which leads me to believe that this is all fake news. Time to take the Sputnik vaccine, it prevents C19 and RDS (Russian Derangement Syndrome) Anyone remember how Russia was setting bounty’s on our soldiers….whole narrative just got debunked. Stay Here Stay Stupid!!!!

      You swallow propaganda and believe what you want to believe. It’s called self deception. The story is bogus.

    • grant smythe | April 16, 2021 at 7:27 PM | Reply

      @Michael Morton No, no. The Mueller Report made no such statement.

    • grant smythe | April 16, 2021 at 7:41 PM | Reply

      @Jehovah Witness Yes, that piece of Intelligence came up during the Trump Administration. It appears that that bit of intel wasn’t the only Trump Administration intel failure. That administration couldn’t be trusted to deliver viable intel on anything, foreign or domestic.
      But don’t worry. President Biden will bring all of our Intelligence agencies back up to the pre-Trump standards Americans are used to depending on.
      Glad the past is past. When those involved in and responsible for the insurrection are brought to Justice, we can close the book on that inept and traitorous period in our history.

    Treason- big-time!

  5. brilliantly said, ty both. we all knew but t** and low-barr blocked the disclosure of evidence.

  6. Michael Ulbricht | April 16, 2021 at 5:58 AM | Reply

    Regardless, this going to make the GOP and their “Big Lie” tactic look even worse. If Don even attempts to run in 2024, the GOP’s done!

    • Robert Girouard | April 16, 2021 at 7:09 PM | Reply

      How gullible you are. You accept this nonsense with no evidence because you are desperate to believe it is true.

  7. Yourdeadmeat69 | April 16, 2021 at 6:20 AM | Reply

    The dots have always been connected but Mueller turned over the Espionage portion of the investigation other government agencies so I think you’re seeing the work product of those other investigations bear fruit.

    • Yes, this is just a tease, wait until it is all present at once. Those that had not been paying attention – may be blown away, we came within hours of losing everything to a fascist narcissistic liar.

      @Guy North With voter suppression laws metastasizing in 43 states, the
      GOP de tat continues without our due diligence. No rest in the fight to preserve democracy.

  8. We all knew about Russia’s involvement since 2015 and we knew trump was in it.

  9. Everyone figured this out years ago, the Oligarchs and Putin operate hand in glove.

    The question anyone tech savvy wanted to know is was did the data supplied include a dump of the Cambridge Analytica material that had been harvested from Facebook containing tens of thousands of data points on targeted individuals?

  10. Mit Seraffej | April 16, 2021 at 6:57 AM | Reply

    If this information is correct I expect it was suppressed by honest and patriotic bureaucrats until the change of administration. They knew Trump would have had it buried, never to see the the light of day.

  11. Barr has been MIA for nearly 4 months. Is anyone investigating him and all of his cover-up actions/inactions?

    • @eltorocal; Overture, curtain, lights
      This is it, the night of nights 
      No more rehearsing and nursing a part 
      We know every part by heart 
      Overture, curtain, lights 
      This is it, we’ll hit the heights 
      And oh what heights we’ll hit 
      On with the show this is it.

      Tonight what heights we’ll hit. 
      On with the show, this is it.

    • @Jesse Bianchi; I didn’t realize I had put Barr’s name in there, I couldn’t understand what you were saying, thanks! (I fixed it, I had just finished an article on Barr).

      @Guy North good enough. stay sane.

    • @Guy North …like Al Gore, Joe Biden? Only Mondale, Quayle, Cheney and Pence-on-a-fence… The Republican’s always TAKE their $$ and hide.

    • @Guy North The sparks of the tempest rage a hundred years on
      The voice of the dreamer screams, the cause of the pawn
      The King and the Queen are gone, each piece is the same
      The difference between us is a part of the game
      Darkness is spreading like a spot on the sun
      The dead are the living in age of the gun
      While everyone clamors for the justice they seek
      The world is corrupted and the strong take the weak
      They mold you and shape you, they watch what you do
      The sparks of the tempest are burnin’ you through
      Spreading like wildfire, fallin’ like rain
      Though they may promise, they only bring pain
      The future is managed, and your freedom’s a joke
      You don’t know the difference as you put on the yoke
      The less that you know, more you fall into place
      A cog in the wheel, there is no soul in your face
      Run for the cover, Millennium’s here
      Bearing the standard of confusion and fear
      Spreading like wildfire, fallin’ like rain
      Though they may promise, they only bring pain
      Blood in the sand, cry in the street
      Now the cycle is nearly complete
      Ten thousand years, nothing was learned
      No turning back, now the wheel has turned
      Big brother is watching and he likes what he sees
      A world for the taking, when he’s ready to squeeze
      King and the Queen are gone, each piece is the same
      The difference between us is a part of the game
      Soothsayer saying now tell me no lies
      What is the madness that is filling the skies
      Spreading like wildfire, fallin’ like rain
      Though they may promise, they only bring pain

    The saddest thing about the whole Trump fiasco was how many good men did not stand up.

      @Jim McLoughlin hahahahahahaha You have no shame and no self respect.

    • Robert Girouard | April 16, 2021 at 8:22 PM | Reply

      @Guy North The story has already been exposed as garbage. Boy you desperate democrat losers love to humiliate yourselves.

    • @Robert Girouard hey… church-brain… Your ilk are MURDERING people every day…
      …some church.

    • @Robert Girouard; No you certainly do not, and what a typical foolish cultist with your childish ‘projection’!

    • @Robert Girouard; What story are you talking about, and what ‘Democrat losers’? As a Progressive Independent I see the party in office doing nothing but soaring, especially if you should balance it against that last irresponsible ignorant, self absorbed fool, hadn’t you noticed any of that?

  13. Brian Benczkowski was head of the FBI CRIMINAL DIVISION. Brian Benczkowski also worked for the RUSSIAN bank, Alfa Bank.

    Republikkkans knew that Brian Benczkowski had worked for a Russian bank, and they STILL confirmed him.

    And Brian Benczkowski, Jeff Sessions, and Bill Barr weren’t (and aren’t) the only Trump cronies working for the Justice Dept.

      An irrelevant conclusion, also known as ignoratio elenchi (Latin for ”ignoring refutation”) or missing the point, is the informal fallacy of presenting an argument that may or may not be logically valid and sound, but (whose conclusion) fails to address the issue in question.

  15. Since there are new information, can’t the DOJ charge Paul Manafort on new charges? Like espionage?

    When will someone go to prison?!! TRAITORS!!
    This is ridiculous!!!

  18. How incredibly low has the GOP sunk that they did NOT react AT ALL with all this information but tried to hide it under the rug.
    Well, this the new GOP.

    The reason is TREASON… 👌🏻 Now that we have established what we already knew… 🙄 How about holding them accountable? 🤨 Testing, Testing… is this thing on? (tap, tap, tap) Hellooooooow… Someone… Anyone? Is there a lawyer in the house? Can SOMEONE please tell me why we are not holding these CRIMINALS accountable? (crickets chirping) Hmmm, why can’t I ever get an answer to that one simple question… 🤔 Being above the law must be soooooo WONDERFUL! 🤗
