    Barr’s a full fledged crook.

  2. The Republican Party is no longer a political party/movement. It’s a criminal organization

    Ding.. I guess we can now Place America in that pot of corrupt government countries around the world.

  4. I still do not understand why he continues to get away with what he does. We have no laws in place against a corrupt president? This is just unbelievable. I can’t believe that one man could have soooo many scandals surrounding him and still maintain his job as the leader of our country.

  5. El Trumpo: “Russia? I don’t know him, never met him.”

  6. We are getting closer to a Dictatorship! Can’t let this happen… It will change America forever. Need to get rid of the swamp and its leader…

      @love Worldwide Well, I must disagree with you. Minorities are treated very much equally in the US. Nobody is taking their rights to go to university, no one is taking their scholarship, nobody puts them on blacklists in teh rest of their life. Where do you get this bs? It is a very different story if certain individuals are lazy to pursue or work hard for bettering their life and feeling entitled to get free stuff form teh story when you actually forcefully are kicked out of your house with one suitcase in your hand ONLY because of political reason. wake up!!!! You have NO CLUE what you are talking about

    • *VOTE**#BLUE**!* 4 keys to stop Trump & Putin from rigging our votes:

      1. Check your voter registration status NOW.

      County clerks in Republican districts across the country fraudulently purge voter rolls of legitimate Democrat voters prior to each election. In the 2014 mid-term election, I arrived at my local polling station only to discover I was no longer registered to vote, even though I had been a resident of my county and living at the same address for seven years. I was forced to cast a “provisional ballot,” which I suspect was not counted in the final vote tally. Since then, I have always verified my voter registration status well ahead of upcoming elections to ensure I have time to re-register in case of any Republican shenanigans.

      2. Vote early.

      In Republican states, there will no doubt be attempts to suppress voter turnout in Democratic districts by limiting the number of polling stations and reducing polling hours. This will likely be under the guise of protecting voters and polling workers from Covid-19 exposure.

      Laws no doubt vary by state. In Texas, voters must vote at their designated polling location on Election Day. However, during the early voting period, voters can vote at any open polling location in their county of residence. This makes it more difficult for Republicans to target Democratic districts for poll closures and restricted hours. Find the early voting laws for your state, and vote as early as possible. This will point you in the right direction:

      3. Use no-excuse absentee voting in states where it is available.

      “No excuse absentee voting” means you can request an absentee ballot from your state or county election official for any reason. Currently, 29 states offer no excuse absentee voting, including the most important swing states: Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin. If your state is on this list, request an absentee ballot and mail it no later than October 20th to ensure it is received and counted:

      Mail in ballots can be dropped off at your local election board in most cases, or authorized ballot boxes at various locations in your state. That will lighten the burden on the Post Office that Trump has kneecapped.

      To New Yorkers: New York State has Republican districts. Due to COVID-19, the legislature recently passed several bills to make it easier to request an absentee ballot. The date was moved up so you can request one today. You can use COVID-19 as a reason. For more information see:

      4. Do NOT waste your vote.

      Yes, my fellow Americans, I am also frustrated by the two-party system, and I understand the appeal of underdog third-party candidates. You must realize, however, that a vote for a third-party candidate is effectively a vote for Trump. Don’t believe me? Just look at the numbers. Two states, Florida and Wisconsin, tipped the Electoral College for Trump in 2016. Trump won Florida by 113,000 votes and Wisconsin by a mere 23,000 votes. The top two third-party candidates, Gary Johnson and Dr. Jill Stein, captured 271,000 combined votes in Florida and 137,000 combined votes in Wisconsin. According to exit polls, the overwhelming majority of these votes were from disenfranchised Liberal voters who refused to vote for Hillary Clinton. Joe Biden is not my preferred candidate (“Bernie/Warren 2020” was my dream ticket). Nevertheless, *we must be united in taking back our country* and make America thrive again. *VOTE **#BLUE**!* If you’re not sidin’ with Biden then you’re rootin’ for Putin! Please share this message as often as possible from now to Election Day. Say “NO” to another four years of fascism.

      Flush the turd on November the 3rd! 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊💩

    • @Gabriella Anderson I lived in a communist country for 8 years, I’ve lived in the US and I’ve lived in a social democractic country for 20+ years – and US is definitely a republic democractic country *heading into fascism!* What Biden and Bernie want is for US to be more like most developed social democractic Western European countries like UK, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Iceland, Finland, Ireland, Switzerland, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Austria, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, and social democratic countries like Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Uruguay, Mauritius etc.

      In fact, the United States was downgraded from a full democracy to a flawed democracy; its score crossed the threshold from 8.05 in 2015 to 7.98 in 2016 by the Economist’s annual global Democracy Index report, blaming partisanship and Trump for US new dismal ranking:

      Biden and Bernie are not communists, they want social democracy like Western Europe. China is a communist country! Russia is a dictatorship! Know the bloody difference

      @Z. Deutch BTW – You NEVER truly lived in a communist country!!!!! You lie!

  7. The GOP is a legalized Mafia, interesting that a “Don” is the head of the snake.

  8. Americans, why is Barr still your AG? This over-sized, corrupt man needs to be in prison.

    • @yerb that’s the tolerant left for you

      Sorry asnking now tim is Amerika

    • For now, Americans have little choice but to tolerate Barr – while he is in bed with tRump! It’s all the more urgent to vote Blue in November. In less than 4 years tRump and his criminal gang has brought America to its knees, while ushering Putin in the front door of the whitehouse. With a Putin firmly in charge from January, how long will America last? March? May, perhaps? tRump MUST be kicked out, charged and jailed. And his other republican criminals. Vote Blue guys.

      @Albert Jacobchik Are you stuck on CAPS LOCK?

    • Albert Jacobchik. What is “whinning “, comrade?

    • Newly released records from the Justice Department showed that at least several dozen phones belonging to members of Mueller’s team were wiped of information because of forgotten passcodes, irreparable screen damage, loss of the device, intentional deletion or other reasons—all before the Justice Department inspector general’s office could review the devices. NOTHING TO SEE HERE.

    • Spam-posting Bueker is spam-posting… 👎

  10. When children 100 years from now are studying history, Bill Barr is going to be looked at in the same light as John Mitchell and Benedict Arnold!

    • Robert – At least General Arnold actually *fought for America* (before justified anger and wounded pride took him down the path of betrayal)… 😒
      #45✳ was ‘born on 3rd base and thinks he hit a triple’…and Barr’s *become his ‘Roy Cohn’.* 👎

    • Michael Robinson | September 12, 2020 at 8:01 PM | Reply

      With climate change there will be no future! We need Biden to save America

    • No statues for Benedict Arnold – plenty for traitors Lee, Jackson, Bragg, Forrest etc.

  11. Observation : USA government is acting similar to China and Russia with respect to dictatorship and interference in their courts.

  12. EVERYTHING he does appears to be “Deeply Concerning” HELLO 🙄

    • Either do something about it or shut up. Cause it’s doing nothing but separating us further. Cause we see the corruption. But we also see that nothing is being done about it. Nothing but a bunch of people writing books getting rich. Smh.

    Trump is a bully and all his flying monkey’s lie for him just to keep their job can’t talk to trump about Russia because he fear Putin

    • Christien du Preez | September 14, 2020 at 8:22 AM | Reply

      Why do you think the DEMS are sheiting their pants because of what is coming out through the Durham investigation? One guilty plea already, and more to come. SOME PEOPLE ARE SCARED!!!!!

    • @Christien du Preez Dems just laugh at all the feeble attempts trump makes to deflect blame. Period. End of story, Tovarish

    • @Ken White BRAVO! well said. Yet seems a bit naive to me.

    • Suuuuuure, Preez… 🙄
      *Just like* Jim Comey’s arrest.
      *Just like* Andrew McCabe’s arrest.
      *Just like* John Podesta’s arrest.
      *Just like* Greg Craig’s conviction.
      *Meanwhile* (and allowing for ‘as-of-yet-announced indictments’)…
      #45✳’s *’accrued’ FOUR disbarred lawyers (and counting), SEVEN former employees who are INDICTED felons (SIX already CONVICTED), DOZENS of…’unplanned resignations’ AND, at last count, FIVE administration members with “Contempt Citations” NOW ON their resumes (Barr’s been cited TWICE 🤨).*
      And we won’t *EVEN mention* #45✳’s *numerous* ‘financial fiascos’… 💸
      But *we will* remind *everyone of THIS fact:*

  14. Just another predicted distraction by Trump and his personal attorney, Barr.

  15. To steal a country:

    Insert an ally in a powerful position.
    Replace all key governing positions with loyalists.
    Replace truth with rhetoric.
    Divide the populous.
    Incite violence and discord.
    Encourage loyal “patriots” to exterminate opposition.
    Use the then violent opposition as a reason to build a loyal hit force designed to eliminate the loudest of the opposition. <— (We are here) Begin executing opposition leaders. America, you are one step away from a dictator.

    • @JT Inspirations we are 1 step away from a dictatorship dumbshit. Stop drinking the foolaid. Cultists are something else 😜

    • @Bill Clark Huh?

    • You’re a sheep Bill. Do you even know what a cult is? Are you stupid or just an ignorant fool. How is Trump a Dictator? You’re the cultist, following your Dem leader to a real socialist dictator. You and people like you are what is wrong with this country.

    • @Bill Clark – That’s *why* we say…
      #CloroxtinisForAllOf45sFans 🍸👋😏

  16. She got tired of being pushed by Barr to do something that she knows is wrong,,,,can’t wait for her to be called before congress to testify as to whats going on

    • Christien du Preez | September 14, 2020 at 8:23 AM | Reply

      No, get the real info, and by taht stop making a cake of yourself. She was asked to go because she is VIOLENTLY anti-Trump.


    • The Upcoming Durham Report, Election Interference and Other Bill Barr Abuses

      “Bill Barr tasked U.S. Attorney John Durham with going on a witch hunt – investigating the Trump-Russia investigators – in efforts to undermine the origins of the Russia investigation, notwithstanding the fact that the Mueller Report AND the DOJ Inspector General (IG) Horowitz report AND the Senate Intelligence Committee reports all concluded that the Trump-Russia investigation was properly opened. Barr is looking for a different answer – one that helps Trump and hurts Biden. Hence, the Durham investigation.

      One of Durham’s top prosecutors, Nora Dannehy, abruptly resigned due to Barr pressuring Durham to issue an interim report PRIOR TO the election. Barr’s conduct is dead wrong in two ways: first, prosecutors do not issue reports. In my 30 years as a federal prosecutor, I never once issued a report. Second, nothing should be done by prosecutors within 60 days of a presidential election that could impact public opinion about the candidates. Barr violates all DOJ norms, protocols, traditions and ethical standards by pressuring Durham to issue an interim report so close to the election.”

    • @jane hyden I admire very much your imagination

  17. I vote to start the whole world over again, nobody has any power..let’s get it..
