  1. Jail them all till they sing like canaries.

    • @Duane Hall just because you are too stupid to hang and you are embarrassed so easily does not make anyone else a troll. It just makes you DUMB.

    • @cdjhyoung
      I hear it’s a SWINGIN’ PLACE!!😉

    • @Brad brad another plant is closing in MI. (steel)

    • Brad brat
      We’re tired of trump taking credit for a trend, tinkering it up with tax cuts and increased spending, and since that’s unsustainable, squawking that if the economy goes south it’s because of the media. In short, we’re tired of the thief in chief.

    • Honk Honkler ??? What are you talking about?

    • Richard Weinberg | August 20, 2019 at 2:28 AM | Reply

      They don’t have to.  She never took the 5th.  Cooperated fully in every way.  Your a Russian bot or a Trump cultist, ignoreable either way, your deflection did not work.  Now back to todays Trump insanity and lies.

    • @Richard Weinberg The trump people like lewendowski won’t
      bother to take the 5th. They lie. Just like Billy Barr.

    • @Richard Weinberg Hi Richard, just to ask only ok? Do you think someone will take the chance to come clean – like completley. Sought of been following some other commentators and the one common denominator they all agree on is that somebody spils the beans, always.

    Lock him up Lock him up. Shoulda been along time ago!!

    • Donald Jones He is more educated than your President who can’t speak in complete sentences.

    • Honk Honkler ???? What are you talking about? Do you even know?

    • @Donald Jones is obama your boyfriend? Why do you care about him so? You do know Obama is not president right? Next you’ll complain about Nixon? Ok

    • @Honk Honkler why lock them up? Trump is PRESIDENT and doing NOTHING to lock them up so are you AGAINST Trump because dont want Clinton locked up or she would BE IN JAIL NOW…right? Are you saying trump is weak? He afraid of his FRIENDS the Clintons?

    I like “Thief of State.” Trump is a thief. More importantly he’s also an active white domestic terrorist, but i like the branding.

    • Blink Once on Sunday! The only two presidents to commit treason are the last two Democrat Administrations

    • James K. Boyle | August 19, 2019 at 10:05 PM | Reply

      @Tom Ogden simple concepts likes Hillary using off the books gov resources with ohr, ohr wife, ex steele british agent who crafted a fake dossier from russian intel, media leak campaign, hysteria, more hysrteria, leading to illegal fisa warrants, lying by Comey, biased fbi lovers with insurance policies, leading to special council and fake hoax investigation. Illegal spying by obama administration.

      While every american indicator is better than prev administeation.

      So sad and sorry your gal lost.

    • @Tom Ogden Gotcha. Next time put in some effort.

  8. The Democrats ain’t gone do that, though. They too scary! They should have jailed Hope Hicks months ago!

      @dominic pelle Lock McGhan up also. He is the biggest traitor…he told the truth to Mueller people that trump obstructed justice but he doesn’t have the courage or integrity to save this country and the American people he is so afraid of trump…shame on him for having no courage…bottom line he is a wimp!

    • dominic pelle | August 20, 2019 at 2:58 AM | Reply

      @Barbara Roberts cowards and traitors.. The Trump administration.. ethos

  10. Rebecca Benway | August 19, 2019 at 6:44 PM | Reply

    When John Flannery smiles like that…Look out, Cadet Bone Spurs.

  11. YES that is clear talk, Mr. Flannery!!!

  12. We should also arrest All Lawyers working for the Trump administration for the sole purpose of undermining American law for the sole benefit of the Republican party by breaking our existing laws. They are all criminals.

    • You’re right about trump wouldn’t have been able to do 1% of the horrible things he’s done without soulless traitors that were willing to commit crimes against their country for their own gain.

    • Start with Barr he’s AG for Trump not AG for American people then the rest..

    • Judy Bargenquast | August 19, 2019 at 7:54 PM | Reply

      Josie Schulz I second the motion.

      @1247.cc Brennan, Clapper….two patriots.

    • @Duane Hall
      Good job calling out the russian troll!

    • Johnny Blade —When 45 told us: “I could stand on 5th Avenue and shoot someone and I wouldn’t lose any support,” he wasn’t kidding!Congratulations for proving him right. My question to you is: what will it take for his supporters like you to stop making excuses for this lying criminal and admit that he does not have clean hands. At minimum he’s dishonest most of the time! So please stop pretending this man is a Saint with the best of intentions when that is clearly not the case. Until and unless you die-hard, 45 loyalists can be 100% honest with yourselves, this charade will only continue-indefinitely, and to what end, is anyone’s guess?

    • Mighty Whitey335 —Unfortunately you are correct. Elections do indeed have consequences.

  14. I agree. WHY the delay on enforcing the law, Upon the actions of this corrupt administration?? We’ve seen and lived through enough!

  15. They should start jailing them

  16. John Edward Jones | August 19, 2019 at 7:04 PM | Reply

    Lock them up. Make them talk to uncover obstruction of justice and other corruption. Always appreciate John’s perspectve/insights.

    • Man if you had to lock people up for obstruction of justice EVERY democrat would be in prison for life

    • Barr is a liar. There is a way around him and his onstruction of Congress.

    • Iain Herridge | August 20, 2019 at 7:12 AM | Reply

      @Honk Honkler NO THEY WOULDN’T but I’ll go easy on you as that stupid statement indicates you may have just woke from a coma!

    • @Iain Herridge That response is just the tit for tat answer that trumpee gives everything. Trumpee supporters should try some logical thinking.

    • @Iain Herridge I think your “trumpee just woke from a coma” comment was brilliant and so funny.

  17. Flannery is the most balanced talking head on MSM that I’ve seen since Trump was shoved into office.

    Get on with the probe’s put them in jail if needed Action is needed not talk . Action now

    If Trump’s says illegals break the law by crossing the border.
