  1. This is one of those where you’ll hear Donald say he knows nothing about it. Never met the guy.

  2. Rudy: *begins sweating in black ink*

    Barr: *stutters in mayonnaise*

    Jared: *flys in flames*

  3. So is this the reason why Giuliani has been asking for a preemptive presidential pardon for himself? Because he is the attorney involved in this bribery scheme?

    • Yes. He’s pretty much been his only lawyer for the last year. It could also be to pardon him for the seditious activities he’s waged to undermine our elections w/o any proof of fraud.

  4. There’s nothing new about bribery with this administration…but the frequency is astonishing…wow…smh 🙅🏾‍♂️🙅🏾‍♂️🙅🏾‍♂️

  5. There are more criminals in the White House than the State Prison !

    • You are right on the MONEY. What with the Current & now Fired President (aka CON MAN-IN-CHIEF) walking the “criminal” talk the rest of the cult are full of their dirty tricks while the going is GOOD. Hope all the criminals are brought to justice

    • ….lets add to those state prison numbers in 2021!!!!

    • Yes, and Trump is the leader. He tried to bribe the Ukraine President Zelinsky as we know; and there were several first-hand witnesses to that. He “squeaked” through, and got away with it mostly because of corruption and 99 percent of the GOP Congress too scared of him to stand up for the truth.

    • @Sloth Finn Hopefully to end this INSANITY!!!

    • At least prisons are snake free

  6. Sounds like Ghouliani trying to raise funds for xpotus knowing he’ll get pardoned when he’s caught

  7. Ugh. This is just such a Trump type thing.

  8. Trump has a habit of getting out of things so even if Trump is involved I would guess he would try 2 throw everybody under the bus.

  9. If a corrupt lawyer is involved it has to be Giuliani.

      @Anonymous Person Trump: I’ve got this f*cking power it’s golden, why would I give it away for free? This is exactly how psychopaths like Trump think. Trump’s future is behind bars. I’m sure he’ll be happy to get visits from you or anyone who’s still interested in seeing him in the big house.

    • @Anonymous Person look at this dude trying to ignore evidence

    • @Projectheureka the kkk and the nazi party are democrat institutions.
      Giuliani is the guy that put the mafia in prison. Not just some of them all of them. So you are twisted and wrong.

    • @Bliss And Wellbeing you are listening to psychopaths tell you he’s a psychopath.

    • @Sabrina R BARR HAS BEEN PRETTY MUCH MIA FOR THE LAST 2 WEEKS. FINALLY FIGURING OUT HE CANT PROTECT THIS DIRTY DIAPER PRESIDENT ANY LONGER. I DONT SEE BARR GETTING FIRED AFTER HIS SPEECH TODAY BECAUSE HE KNOWS WHERE ARE TRUMP’S BODIES ARE BURIED. DIAPER DON IN FOR IT NOW. I CAN ALREADY HEAR THE BAR OF SOAP HITTING THE FLOOR!!! BYE BYE DONNY!! SAY HELLO TO BUBBA OR JOSE!! LOL

  10. “NO COMMENT from the WHITE HOUSE”————uh oh……….LOL

      @Sheldon Walz too busy deciphering why u trumpites can’t get over sitting alone at the lunch table back in grade school. Let it go. Come back to Earth. We’ll embrace ya!

    • @William Perdue lol explain to the world how Trump won 18 out of 19 Bellwether counties and the 3 Bellwether states. That should be easy for an intellectual giant like yourself I await your spin

    • William Perdue | December 2, 2020 at 12:17 AM | Reply

      @Sheldon Walz You only know the term “spin” because of your King… You’re better than that, Sheldon.

    • @William Perdue you never answered the question

    • William Perdue | December 2, 2020 at 1:39 AM | Reply

      @Sheldon Walz not supposed to feed the ducks.

  11. This is prob why Barr came out and said “no election fraud”… he’s trying to distance himself.
    Barr: “I never knew the guy. I heard he was a disgruntled president. I never met him”

  12. I’m waiting for the handcuffs. Then maybe I’ll believe in the justice system.

    • Exactly.
      Personally I think Biden is being Too Soft.
      Guarantee if it was the other way around Trump wouldn’t hesitate.
      Biden needs to make a Example.

      The handcuffs have been misplaced or they’ve run out of them from grabbing people off the streets

    • @Todd Toure I believe he already spoke on this, and he’s leaving this issue in the hands of his new AG. Some are hoping he’ll appoint Hillary. lol

    Wonder if lindsey graham requested a pardon for telling the Georgia governor to literally throw Away valid votes in an effort to get a trump win.

    Be looking at Trump’s family, and all his wealthy buddies.
    Gullianni, Stone etc. No limit of the crooks to look at.

    • Alfonso Garcin | December 2, 2020 at 12:14 AM | Reply

      White buffalo.i hope trumpee and all his family end up in jail . including all the crooks he had in his cabinet . God bless america .

      The Trump Tribe is a bunch of ugly, self-absorbed goons without conscience who put on the pretence that what they are doing matters and is so important. Nothing they have done matters for the good of anyone but themselves.

  15. Somebody high up finally pushed the “BURN” button on Trump.

  16. I’ll lay odds that the lawyer is Giuliani. Selling presidential pardons fits his profile to a T.

  17. The Hoax ‘President’ needs to stuff his pockets so he can pay for all of the legal representation he is going to need for the rest of his sad life.

  18. Could this administration be any more corrupt.

  19. “We Don’t care what CRIMES Trump has committed”————-Most heard phrase at a TRUMP CULT MEETING…

    The only person we all know is needing funds is the leader of the pack..
