  1. About to find out who’s putin’ money in trump’s pockets.

  2. That is why Mr Pinocchio in chief did the most not to leave even loosing election. He is afraid of what is coming out.

    • @Daniel Dravot but here’s one for you….you are aware that Joe biden has a island 5 miles from Epstein island…that Joe cheated on his first wife,that his sons laptop is in the possession of the FBI,with countless photos of him smoking crack and abusing under age girls……that’s all facts,but how would you know MSNBC has never covered any of that investigation. ….

    • @LF313 whatever.

    • @nigel Foggin, my best friend growing up was born of parents who survived a concentration camp.

      My father flew combat in WWII, received the Purple Heart, and spent over a year in a POW camp.

      You and your comment are beneath contempt, and you are not as smart as you think you are.

      I refuse to waste any more time on a contemptible creature such as yourself. Please return to OAN, and leave the rest of us in peace. I will simply mute your detestable voice.

    • @Kevin Brown also having to give up the spray tan.

    • @Kaptain Kmann yep. That makes sense. 🙂

  3. Sounds like we need clearer guidelines and complete transparency for campaign finances.

    • T is erelivant and will slowly ruin himself out of public existence as the criminal charges pile up.just like his lie’s have.

    • We need campaign finance reform and limits to what can be spent.

    • @Harry Johnstone just like Canada?

    • @Daniel Dylan And limited time to campaign…. 75 days up here in canada

    • Harry Johnstone | February 23, 2021 at 7:53 PM | Reply

      @Ben Blasdell Awesome! Down here we need a ten day moratorium on advertising right before the electoin and criminal penalties for swift-boating or any other kind of lie by anybody whether officially part of a campaign or not. It’s pure rot down here, third world to you guys probably

  4. Susanne has a tidy kitchen. (Screw the Trumps BTW.)

  5. Probably the same fools Bannon defrauded over the ‘wall’ money, along with his foreign investors MBS and Pootin.

    Putin designing Trump’s special new underwear as we speak!

  7. Bring Down the Entire Grifter Family!!!!

    • @ARLENE WUK lol! just dumb

    • Victor DeMarco | February 23, 2021 at 6:07 PM | Reply

      @Brian Arrington i agree with you, it just sucks big time to hear it.

    • Victor DeMarco | February 23, 2021 at 6:12 PM | Reply

      @Cliff Medina Sick ppl with covid 19 spread it bc ppl refused to stay home wear masks. I am sorry to hear about your parents. I can’t imagine the pain and loss you feel. Be mad at trump for hiding the truth and not doing enough to stop the spread.

    • @Victor DeMarco

      I regret voting for Biden. Hes not fit to lead.
      Defently something wrong with him.

    • Victor DeMarco | February 23, 2021 at 8:02 PM | Reply

      @Cliff Medina he isn’t senile. Imagine the ego it takes to want to run a country. You can’t be senile and run a country. Those are just hateful words that trump tried to spread. Trump is a disgusting lying pig. How anyone can believe anything else is beyond me. He and his children made millions while he was president, you aren’t supposed to make money as president. Doesn’t that just infuriate you.

    Never forget a large amount of campaign money came up missing, according to Melania Assistant. She felt Melania left her hanging in the cold for that missing money. No surprise money is missing.

    • @P Watson i really thought barr was gonna
      “stop the stealing” with trump and his band of thieving kids.
      It worked out fine tho, when barr saw trump was gonna lose, he pulled the plug.

      Now the @real justice department gonna put them all in the pokey!

      The End

    • @P Watson
      There’s that too. Lots of money went ‘missing’ where Trump was concerned.

    • @glenperu
      Barr even surprised trump when he decided to “Call it a Day”!! LoL!

    • @P Watson That too. $30 million IIRC.
      Everything he’s done over the last 4 years has been directed to siphoning money into his pockets.
      Question is, where is it now? It needs to be recovered.

    • @P Watson you right, thats what you call blindsided,
      he couldn’t say nothing about barr!

    I love that Hillary Clinton used the classic line “FOLLOW THE MONEY”… very appropriate

    • @Kirk R – right. Hillary had DECADES of public service. Donnie had nothing. And a voter could’ve asked anyone in NY about Donnie’s ”character” and found out immediately that Agent Orange was a TOTAL FRAUD. Con men live on victims being gullible.

    • Yes, she did, I still have those Presidential debates between her and Trump. She warned us about Trump. I remember her saying, there must be something in those taxes that you don’t want us knowing about.

      @JD MacGyver I only chose that because honestly I completely FORGOT she was SS under Obama. Point is she has more than one channel for info open to her. Sexism?? Jeez dude did you really go there? I was right about you! 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤣🤣

    • You do realize she was tried 6 times and they couldn’t find anything she did that was illegal. Sorry but you can’t put people in prison because you don’t like them. For your sake.. i would suggest you get some tissues because you are not going to like how this story ends LOL

      @Phil Immerfall i agree with anybody could have seen — but 47% didn’t. We failed in Education.
      Personally, I didn’t give Hillary Rodham enough credit. She was made *littler* in the national view for all those years she took on the role of wife-of-the-President for the good of her husband’s career.

  10. Hey repubs, all that popcorn you were stockpiling for the “executions”—since you’re not using it, mind if we borrow some for the trial(s)?

    • Harry Johnstone | February 23, 2021 at 7:50 PM | Reply

      @T D okay, so it was roger proudboy stone convcted by a jury? Weren’t all of them indicted by grand juries?

    • Harry Johnstone | February 23, 2021 at 7:54 PM | Reply

      1933 is also the year the nazi ‘manual’ was published. Mein Kamp was for the bread and circus crowd, this one was the real deal

    • @Harry Johnstone the bar to indict is really low, and with conviction it takes a single juror to stop a conviction. I’m done with this dumb argument, learn what actually happened because I’m not paid to educate you on reality. Trump sucked, but you don’t seem to have actually followed the cases you present for your argument…

    • Harry Johnstone | February 23, 2021 at 7:57 PM | Reply

      Yolu can’t blame them for trying (actually can, but) if the mercenaries in the capitol bldg on J6 got to pence and Pelosi trump would have
      liberated washington
      invoked insurrection act
      declared martial law
      issued PEAD
      Round-ups and disappearings.

      How do I know? Because the Qballs talked about it for months and not even trump is stupid enough to think te insurrection would accomp[l;ish anything with half-measures

    • Harry Johnstone | February 23, 2021 at 8:13 PM | Reply

      @T D I have to admit this is awkward, and thanks for your patients. You’re right, I was drawing from memory and probably missed it all. This is the first time, ever, I have been mistaken on facts, and I apologize. Take care!

  11. Now do the missing millions from the inaugural fund.

  12. Investigators on Trump are slowly Putin’ two and two together.

  13. “We have all the funding we need out of Russia”
    – Eric.

  14. Alex, I’ll take “Money Laundering” for 400

  15. hmmm… why would a “billionaire” need to engineer a cash scheme in Vegas??!

    • Well he’s not gonna use his own money 😂😂😂

      Sheldon Adelson was a Casino Billionaire!!

      The super-spenders are friends of President Donald Trump, who gave Miriam Adelson the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2018 and earlier this year appointed Sheldon Adelson to a council of business leaders who advise him on reopening the country. In 2016, they were Trump’s top two benefactors, excluding the candidate himself. They also chipped in $5 million toward Trump’s inauguration.
      The Adelsons have almost singlehandedly funded Preserve America PAC, the newest pro-Trump super PAC. They account for $75 million of the group’s $81 million haul this election.

    • pretty cure Forever | February 23, 2021 at 2:12 PM | Reply

      Who said he was a” billionaire” those poor employees

  16. The brutal fight for secrecy is not a sign of honesty.

  17. I would bet a lot of this money has a Russian connection thru NRA, and other republican entities and fronts

  18. Let us not forget we are dealing with a life long toxic grifter and an overall corrupt trump clan.

  19. CONMAN Don grifting the American people. And Republicans love him still.

  20. Reasons why the “other guy” wants to stay in politics so bad.
