    The guy is lying…look, he does not have a courage to see right at the camera!!!!!

  2. CROOKED!

    • @picknngrinnin lmao you are so misinformed it’s honestly pathetic

    • @206- Sea You and your demon rat communist buddies are: a “complete package”; ignorant, bigoted, fascist, racist, sanctimonious, hypocritical, criminal, subversive. In a nutshell, everything they accuse conservatives of being. All brought to you by the Demonrat communist party.

    • @picknngrinnin what are you even talking about? Are you a bot?

    • @206- Sea Yeah, I’m a bot, moron!

    • @picknngrinnin okay then, fellow human. Define communism. And then define liberalism. And then tell me how they are the same.

  3. You are standing before us now to give us confidence?? You are failing.

      That speaks about the whole administration.

    • You can run but you cannot hide. Space age technology allows software, A.I. cyber-cops to monitor almost everything. Couple that with projects like Space One and others. Your voting information has, is, and will be available to many wise (wo)/men, is it a form of public record? If traffic cameras and a grocery store cameras are being surveilled by local law enforcement is that a public record?
      Your voting data, just like your shopping data are being saved someplace, it has to be. Who can access those files? Not a conspiracy theory, this is a co-con-conspirator fact! (don’t believe the hype/implications about Russia and Iran) Don’t let fear guide your actions, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE because it counts. You have leverage. If you’re not involved in this voting tidal wave, even your memories will be washed away.

    This sh** is like an episode of GOT.

      According to the Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe, (who was nominated by Donald Trump) Iran is attempting to intimidate Democratic voters to vote for Trump in order to somehow hurt Donald Trump.
      “We have already seen Iran sending spoofed emails designed to intimidate voters, incite social unrest, and damage President Trump,” claimed Ratcliffe.
      The emails to which Ratcliffe was referring had the subject line, “Vote for Trump or else!”

      But more vicious

  5. This isnt the first time I’ve seen the FBI make an announcement.

    It sound’s like they’re working for Trump to invalidate “mail in” ballots.

    • UtubeProfit okay, there’s what, 20M. How about the rest? I’ve avoided her label specifically bc the name. Lol.

    • @CK K you know what I think? i think poor kids might be brighter and more talented than Joes son Hunter….I could be wrong but poor kids learn how to hide incriminating evidence at a young age, and if Hunter did that then Joey would still be getting away with extorting billions from foreign relations by selling USA out, thats what i think..

    • Dr. Annabelle Lecter | October 22, 2020 at 4:57 AM | Reply

      @UtubeProfit Nope. Back in July 2018, Ivanka Trump announced she was closing down her fashion brand. A number of major retailers including Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus famously stopped carrying Ivanka’s line shortly after Trump became president. Nobody could buy her Chinese sweatshop crap even if they wanted to.

      They actually said that foreign countries were sending ballots in.. lmao

    • @Dr. Annabelle Lecter But they’ll continue buying Nike made the same way 🙄

  7. The 4 STOOGES !

  8. He is saying foreign powers want to cause “confusion, chaos and undermine your confidence” ..

    And a great way to help these foreign powers is being as vague as possible about it.. Well done heatcliff!

  9. The quickest way to completely obliterate TRUST . . . . . . is to change the last two letters to MP!

  10. It’ll come out that Russians were posing as Iranians…that’ll be the reality

  11. They’re going to use this to de-legitimize the election results, and they’ll use other tactics as well. Be prepared!

    • @Greg Steele Doubts about the election all emanate from the demon rats!

      @picknngrinnin You’re flailing. It hurts, doesn’t it? You are so scared. you know your fantasy and your way of life is about to end, and you don’t know what to do.

    • patricia lafountain | October 22, 2020 at 8:15 AM | Reply

      Yup that’s what they are doing. Trump can say when he loses that the election was rigged and he wants another do over. Doesn’t take a genius to figure that out. Trump supporters will never be able to figure it out because they’re so dense.

    • @Greg Steele Buddy, quintessential question. Will democrats accept the results of the election even though voter suppression is rampant? Yes, we will. Will republicans accept the election results because of overblown lies such as election fraud? No, they won’t. That’s the difference between good and evil.

  12. Desperately trying to push the narrative away from Russia and onto a target they’d love to attack.

  13. Aaron Averheart | October 22, 2020 at 3:57 AM | Reply

    This is their way of trying to delay the results. I smell bs going on.

    • patricia lafountain | October 22, 2020 at 8:10 AM | Reply

      It is going on. Trump’s very desperate and is trying everything he can.. THIS IS BS RATCLIFFE IS THE MAIN PROBLEM DOING DIRTY DEADS FOR TRUMP.

    • @Richard MacLean didn’t know any Republicans melting down when suffering through Nobama for 8 missarable, or hear any say they would move to a different country. But the pitifully public melt downs, promises to move and endless childish behavior comes from the DEMOCRATS.

    • @Bobby H And stupidity comes from the Republicunts case in point you
      here trolling us https://youtu.be/8kkBseVTUow

  14. SOUNDS LIKE A SETUP to throw valid ballots in the trash

      @Bonaoa Aoaiia It’s just another trump desperate scheme and Wray spoke BUT he never said one word about what Ratcliffe had said and the other 2 never said a word. That says everything on how Ratcliffe is in trumps pocket.

    • @patricia lafountain “Trump crook”…. explain Biden going from $490k in 2016, to $16.7 million in 2017…. Trump’s net worth actually went down, by millions…. And he has yet to keep a paycheck as President…. Please give me some facts behind your claim, I would be interested in seeing the proof.

    • Yep!

    • That “Chinese account” sure diverted YOU away from Hunter’s Laptop…. explain away the laptop, please…. otherwise you are inadvertently working with the ccp….

    • @スカイハイ you must be a ccp troll… go back to china.

    • スカイハイ | October 22, 2020 at 8:36 PM | Reply

      @Barry Snow
      You must be a Racist cult without a single brain cell.

    • @スカイハイ ignorant aren’t you…. can’t use facts, because you have none, so you make up bigoted statements…. it shows YOUR intellect.

  18. Looks like Donald J Swamp is looking to start a little war to distract from his corruption and crimes

  19. John’s forcing it, he needs to attend a “tell a better lie” class.

  20. This is to benefit Trump. I don’t believe Him.
