    We have a lawless complicit DOJ, headed by an AG who is hiding his own wrongdoing.

  2. This is only the beginning.

    • @Owen Johnson never trust bias statistics hun, your FACTS are only reporting corruption they wanted you to see, a ton of corruption not reported – you seem to have left out those numbers. But you go ahead and trust a justice system that protects corruption lol you American’s are funny. You’ll learn once your economy collapses and AI keeps you locked into the prison ou voted for. Democrats are the pedophile party and you want to sell the idea they aren’t as corrupt lol try again, come back when you know the definition of the word FACT

      @Brian Wurch All this to support a man with no honor? The problems with today’s Americans is they have forgot what honesty, honor and dignity stands for…Trump and his ilk would not be in power if we counted vote for vote but we play this silly game in this country, rig the system and the masses are divided even when we typically want the exact same things in order to live life…the sham is not politics, the sham is the American people who can’t figure out how to stand together unless it’s during the NFL Super Bowl game….🤨🧐

    • @quietman356 123455 not a democrat, whit e trash. try again.

  3. This case proves Russia helped trump get elected.  Trump is a low life fraud.

    Trump has his orange tentacles firmly around Toad Barr’s neck

    • How many dems and repub rhinos from FBI, CIA, NSA, ETC… been charged and prosecuted for serious crimes??? The entire coup came by lies , deception, and trickery to force a duly elected President from office.

    • @kc Cox zero Democrats. what is your point?

  6. Bill Barr is a corrupt two- faced Minion of DON THE CON

      Hear your tongue flapping but where is your proof. Please don’t say Rachel Madcow or any of the other boobs. They have been wrong 100% of the time. Russia, Russia, Russia sounds like wolf, wolf, wolf again. I love winning. You most love losing.

      Dam Seven. You sound like a booger eating moron. Duh, which way did he go George. I’ll catch dat wittle wascal wabbit.

    • Trump like his supporters cause they are stupid! They believed a thousand lies infront of their face! Or else they are Him.

    • @charles bromberick give him a big kiss then. I don’t see it.

    • @Joseph Whisnant name calling. Weak facts

  7. Disgusting… every day this government get more corrupt

    • @Alan Pior Did you see trump’s suggested budget this morning? Which would hurt most American families in a major way? He cares nothing about the families of America and as a matter of fact trump hates all human beings.

    • @Alan Pior Unless you are a wealthy person you are gonna hurt very badd from what he is doing to our country eventually. And not just you but you kids and grand kids and so on we will be a 3rd world country you’ll see and you’ll see it soon.

    • Send helicopters gun boats, tank, personal carriers, 30 machine gun toting SWAT FBI agents in dawn raid with CNN cameras tipped off on every fake news creature at CNN, MSN, CBS, ABC, NPR, NBC, and Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Ohr, Strok, McCabe, Sally Yates, Pelosi, Weissman, Mueller, Biden and son, Kerry and Son, Clinton, Podestas, Huma Abadeen, Feinstein, Schift, Nadler. Time for justice in endless overthrow attempts. All in solitary for 8 months of looking at their shoes like Manafort until their minds crack. Then life no parole. You either take out the king or you die, that is how overthrows work. Seth Rich was the whistle blower on DNC. Who ordered the military raid on 70 year old with no criminal history?

    • clintons corruption, none here

  8. The whole Justice department should walk out – this has gone way too far –

      Tender Heart Think you meant the Bidens silly. Our turn cupcake.

    • @Tender Heart the sad part is if Hillary got elected she would have done the same if not worse and you’d never know about it. At least Trump has no shame in exposing his own criminal behavior. DEEP STATE is really protecting Trump well.

    • @Karen Brock Your response says it all. You can only insult and take a negative approach to issues. Doesnt sound to me like you are anything close to an American. You certainly dont have the American spirit that our beautiful country was founded on. Then just why are you here. The American judicial system has separated us from the rest of the world. Where ever you are from. I feel so sorry for you. You live in a very dark place. Your own head and no heart.

    • @brian gardner Do you believe in truth? Facts? Science? Enjoy this while you can, because your republic is changing and this is your last hurah.

    • @MrDopug you hate drive emotionally broken leftist will not win…ever.

    • @don’t Care eat some babies. That crazy lady is one of yours.

    • @MrDopug If you are a Democrat you do not understand science, your brain washed by dogma. You do not know what is really the fact if you watch leftist media like CNN, or listen to NPR. As for truth, the yellow press threw that out a decade ago. You are sick in the head if you are a Dem.

  10. One banana republic coming right up!!!!

    That’s what the Republican Senators are protecting. Every day a new low….

    • @F Scott They are running scared of his power of destruction and prefer tainting the Constitution to keep the upper hand in governing the country. But this has empowered his enablers and boosted his autocratic tendencies. The Grand Old Party has become Grovelling Old Poodles to a narcissistic master.

    • @duprattcarol excellently said

  12. All aboard the corruption train. Everyone rides for free.

  13. A.G. Fred Flintstone Barr has the DOJ morphed into a criminal enterprise.🙄

  14. Welcomed to the Trump dictatorship where his sycophants are free to break the law …. Just like Trump.
    America has abandoned justice.
    God have mercy on us.

    Ukraine corrupt? Compared to USA they’re angels.

  16. How is this any different than what happens in non democratic nations. Is everyone really pretending that all of this is okay still? Wake me up from this alternate reality. Please.

  17. I’ll be voting Blue next chance I get. Lets get these crooks out of here.

      @Autumn Blues — There was gerrymandering in 2016, too, and Trump only won by a few thousand votes in three states while a lot of voters stayed home. If right-minded people unite behind the Democratic candidate, whoever that may be, and actually turn out to VOTE, yes, voting will work.

    • @Autumn Blues doing nothing for fear of rigging is worse than rigging. It’s time to stand up and vote. Don’t let “they will rig it” be an excuse to not vote.

    • Cloud 9 I was just asking. I vote all the time, won’t help y’all though as I’m not in the US. It’s astonishing to watch this unfold down there. ✌🏻

    • @Autumn Blues it’s astonishing to be here watching it unfold. It just amazes me how fear is overriding our senate. We need serious change.

    • Cloud 9 I just can’t believe what is happening there, it’s surreal. When you go vote take as many as you can with you . Somehow Trump has to fall. ❤️🇨🇦

  18. Welcome to the 3rd world… America is now OFFICIALLY a banana republic

    • Moscow kkk member 7177, it’s been proven only you demoKKKrats colluded with the Russians.

    • @Brian Wurch – “Send helicopters, gun boats, tanks, personal carriers, 30 machine gun toting SWAT FBI agents in dawn raid with CNN cameras tipped off on every fake news creature at FAUX, Russia Today, Breitbart, Tea Party Patriots, Conservative HQ, Alex Jones, Infowars and tRump and his wife Ivanka with sons Dumb and Dumber, Pence, Moscow Mitch, Leningrad Lindsey, Barr, Mulvaney, Esper, Pompeo, Mnuchin, DeVos, Conway, McCarthy, Scalise, Nunes, Gaetz, Jordan, Collins, Murkowski. Time for justice to finish tRunp’s endless obstruction attempts. All in solitary for 8 months of looking at their shoes like guilty Manafort until their minds crack. Then life, no parole. You take out tRump the dictator through fair elections, that is how democracy works. Seth Rich was an innocent pawn used by the GOP. “

    • @Shawn Smith

      And? So What – Holder’s comments were off-hand and informal, but you’re welcome to point out the time when Obama directly interfered in the sentencing of a CONVICTED friend and politic advisor!
      I’ll wait.

      Also please state, in clear and objective terms your NON–PARTISAN rationale for justifying Trumps interference. This would be something you would stand behind with a DEMOCRAT President as well!

  19. Most corrupted administration in history and ain’t even close. SAD times.

  20. This doesn’t raise any questions. Everyone already knows for a fact that the only reason this is happening is because Trump and his cronies are corrupt to the core. There is no question as to if there was political interference. We all know that there was.
