  1. This is HOW Trump keeps ‘em, “loyal.” He gets Pompeo and Barr just as Dirty as HIM. Now they’re interests are aligned, and they’re fighting for their lives by fighting for Trump’s. Barr & Pompeo need to Recuse. Send them to JAIL

    This is not the end but it is the beginning of the end

      Title of an old sci-fi movie with Peter Graves and Peggy Castle. It’s about giant locust invading Chicago. Now we have that happening to every state in the union by a viscous cult. Only now it’s not sci-fi but a reality.

    • Misquoting Churchill?  Let me paraphrase another PM…  If the Dem controlled House was a reality show the whole Dem lot would have been voted out of the jungle by now!  But, at least we would have been entertained by watching Pelosi trying to eat a kangaroo’s testicle!

    • @William Stall As shallow as the previous comment, my very good man.

  3. Can’t wait for these GOP mafia gangsters to get what they deserve

  4. And they will keep lying and obstructing.

  5. You can see these guys have not been held accountable. They are Spoiled children.

  6. Since Barr, Giuliani *and* Pompeo *have now ALL been ‘namechecked’ in that transcript* … *WHY* hasn’t the “American Bar Association” opened an investigation?!?
    Have they *no* regard for *the reputation of their profession* …? 🤨

    • @J.F. Davis I’m not really interested in judging voters for their choices, frankly. I despise Trump, but I firmly believe that people with good intentions can make mistakes or be fooled, and while I’m frustrated with the result of the messy process that is democracy, I don’t believe disparaging others or “shutting up” anyone is a solution to anything. I’d prefer allowing the rule of law and a robust (but civil) exchange of ideas govern our society.

    • @Dy Dayton If I am in a car and one of the passengers loudly yells out directions that get us lost over and over, they need to STFU.

    • Evil generation times as in Romans 1. Men laying with men doing that which is unseemly and abominable.

    • @John Swofford If you didnt believe their lies about Iraq, you were a traitor or a coward or you hated America. 2004 was worse than now. Idk how people forget

    Are they aware that the president wasn’t the one who spent time in jail for the Watergate scandal. This is gonna get good,, as they all try to cover themselves. this is big.

      You’re right. Nixon’s Secretary of State went to prison if I recall.

    • @Marcia Baxter – Nixon’s Attorney General John Mitchell was disbarred and went to prison.

      This may be big, but there’s no guarantee anything of substance will be done. Most Republicans still seem to either defend Trump, or to be content to remain silent.

  10. Everything that tool touches DIES!!!

  11. “There’s substantial significant evidence to impeach”–Robert Mueller & now TREASON..ciao, sara nara, hasta la vista

    Pompeo is complicit in Trump’s crimes. Should be held accountable.

    • @Iro All TRUMPED UP charges and allegations, all fake. It will all be exposed as Durham and Barr have done a little travelling to tie up loose ends, with the hangman’s knot. It’s all but over, shill.

    • @Shawn Corbin You’re just a liar, though.

      I quoted Donald Trump…
      And his actions…
      You called that a “Trumped up charge”

      Can you read, child, or; Do you not even know what the man has said/done?
      Do you pay attention – at all?

    • @padseven : Now I know why you buttheads are against a ban on straws. You need them to grasp at.

    • @Shawn Corbin the day of reckoning is coming. Trumps great economy is falling…hehe jobs numbers slowing, market lost 400 points yesterday, this morning already 300 points down. Hehe. Can’t wait. A democrat will come to the rescue, no doubt.

  13. Barr…jetting around the world on taxpayers money to intimidate and bully other countries. ..that’s the fixers job….clean up the Frumpsters joke of presidency

  14. *Trump and his administration is the most corrupt I have seen in my life time*

    • Good thing Barr didnt say he was Trump’s wing man

    • You must be 3 years old

    • DNC Blog that’s a bold statement being that there have been very dirty administrations before… it’s also a pretty accurate statement but didn’t we already know this prior to Trump’s presidency? Anyone really surprised?

      Probably because you are only looking in one direction…..Every day Trump is getting stronger, more and more information is coming out not only to put this whistleblower and his/her complaint into question (the Ukraine did not even find out the money had been delayed until a month after the call, so not only is there no quid quo pro, there is nothing even implied, but at the same time it was actually the Obama Administration that was all over the Ukraine trying to dig up dirt on Trump, not the other way around, this is going into reverse, they even had their chief strategist there lol), More and more information coming out on Biden, with clear time lines which prove his corruption in the Ukraine (and they haven’t even started on his involvement with China yet, Biden is done and the DNC have thrown him under a bus) but corruption that exists in the Democratic party as a whole, whether it’s against Trump or indeed Democratic candidates themselves. This is all starting unfold now and soon the Democrats will find that they have undone themselves this time.

    • @Tom Long “all I see are dems inventiing fake impeachments every other month since before the election”
      *Insane:* _in a state of mind which prevents normal perception, behavior, or social interaction; seriously mentally ill._

  15. See how they react to someone calling them out? Like roaches scattering after the lights come on!

  16. Draining the swamp is way overdue dudes. Get it done and get it done fast!

  17. I can’t wait until they start dropping like flies.

    Let’s read tRump’s supporters excuse, that sht all ways makes me laught.

    • They’re, currently, pretending that the Ukraine treaty supersedes *_all US law_* and excuses Trump’s mishandling of classified information – somehow.
      They’re, also, totally-comfortable having to defend him from a position, which *needs* to supersede all US law…
      Read: they’ve never cared about the law.
      It’s amazing.

      That guy really could just shoot someone in the street and they’d start defending it >.>

  19. “We lie, we cheat, we steal, giggle giggle giggle” – Pompeo

  20. “Because the United States did the same in other countries”
    Whataboutism. That’s how evil grows, that’s how this administration was elected. The fallacy of relative privation destroying the world.
