  1. Trump is releasing all the people that will help him cheat on November 3nd election

      Mannafort was sharing polling data in battleground states with the Russians. That was treason as Russia had invaded our election. Why wasn’t vhe imprisoned for that. Crying shame. Different justice for different folks.

      Exactly. Tyraneous leadership, direction at it’s best. God! Please! Help us! Thanks, and Amen!

    • I said the same thing.Flynn and Manefort to help with Russia and Arabs

    Well if we can trump out in November we can prosecute ALL of them

  3. I don’t trust this Supreme Court anymore.

      @Gary Rosie ivanka and Jared work at the white house why?

    • Nevyn of OZ 1973 | May 13, 2020 at 10:40 PM | Reply

      @Gary Rosie trump has folded over 250.times and every time he gets.paid for all his support staff staying at his properties and trump.charges 95% of the maximum allowable.

    • Even when you killed JFK, neoDems have never been this corrupt thanks to Obama.

      @Gary Rosie Ivanka goes on a state.visit to China with her father and she gets patents and trademarks including voting machines faster than Xi’s mistress could.

      @Gary Rosie TRUMP wanted the entire g20 to pay him to stay at his unsecured hotel when it was the USA turn to host.
      Do you have a problem with 19 foreign powers paying your president millions of dollars before going into closes door meetings.

  5. Time to burn this govt down and start over. (Through VOTING!!!!)

    • @Elena B. Nothing was stolen from Bernie, the simple fact is he has a lot of supporter who like to talk about their love of Bernie, they seem to be to busy when it’s time to vote. I’m not implying this is you. Just sayin’ his base just doesn’t turn out in the numbers needed to move him ahead. I wish they did. I’ll vote Biden, not because I like Biden. I look at it as not a vote for Biden, more as a vote against Trump, and that’s how I’ll be able to live with myself after I’ve done the deed

    • @Gary Rosie I seriously doubt you are wealthy enough to be a republican,. I know I’m not.

    • neoDems are why US is having trouble.

    • I’d prefer flames

    • Both would be nice

      @Default Name You are a troll hired by the Russians or the Trump campaign. The facts are clear. Trump, by his own admission, tried to threaten a foreign government into framing Joe Biden. That’s not democracy. That’s autocracy. I’m not going to argue with you, because I know what your game is. Your whole campaign is to smear Biden because Trump has made such colossal mistakes and so clearly corrupt. Your’e an operative. Meanwhile, I’m a red-booded, American citizen. And we will not be fooled by you again.

    • @NOT YOU of course Putin is disgusted too… everyone sees he’s no good.

    • @Ryan Welbes dems always restore the nation back from disaster after EVERY REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT. We are living in fascism now. Trump won’t show his taxes and has lied numerous times with different excuses. He has a lot to hide because he is notoriously corrupt like the entire GOP.

  7. Trump’s M.O. – Cover up incompetence with scandal (distraction)

  8. Yes. We see through this ! Get that Fool out of office. 🌊🌊🌊💯🍊

    Obamagate is Obama living rent-free inside Trump’s head.

      Ivanka spreads… Yes he is ,, and you would be amazed at how much vacant space is still available…

    The lesson is: you have to be a Russian collaborator to get special treatment from
    the DOJ. this must be the new GREAT AMERICA.

  11. Crooks all of trump good old boys..

    Trump has constantly proven the America has a serious justice problem. You guys need an enema! Your justice system is broken.

    • Default Name | May 13, 2020 at 8:18 PM | Reply

      True, FISA abuse to spy on the Trump campaign . False accusations of Russian collusion which the initial FBI investigators found no evidence to support.
      Hillary allowed to destroy evidence by the same corrupt FBI
      on and on

      Democrats are always getting away with crime, this can’t continue.

      Manny Loupas no more justice for Trump pals. They will never get him

    Home Confinement with black, brown and poor people is called House Arrest.

  14. There will be a tremendous backlash over this. When other inmates in prisons start to die.

  15. I love my country but this Government Scares Me.

  16. I’m one of those unemployed Americans it is depressing for this country right now

    • Tom Donovan Good Thinking.👍🏻

    • @Jinx Mim Who’s going to do the shooting?

    • Lashawn Adkins | May 13, 2020 at 10:40 PM | Reply

      ❤️ ❤️

    • @Gary Rosie Actually, dimwit, he is only the most powerful man in the world until January 20, 2021 then, he is out.

    • @Ian Burt Many American are laughing at him, too. He actually tells his own supporters to ingest disinfectant and some call in asking if it will work. Well, that is another couple of million dumb Trump voters who bit the dust. The delusional Trump voters will now go forth, catch the virus and we know where that is heading or they will do what many Republicans do, shoot themselves with their own guns. They are not very bright!

  17. Then why not let every 71 yr. old criminal OUT??? This is insane!

    • @Gary Corbett One could argue that Barr just pushed us past the Banana Republic line.

    • are you insane?! Fist thing they would do is form up a gang it would be bedlam out in the streets. Scooters racing up and down the sidewalk at all hours of the early afternoon. Non stop Jeopardy parties. And the cats, O my god the freakin cats! Not to mention everyone of em is packin’. Walkers and canes would unleash upon the very streets. You would no longer be able to take simple trip to the store for fear that precious moments of your life would be stolen as one of em counts out exact change in front of you in line. We would live in constant fear that at any moment we step foot on the wrong lawn and unleash and unholy tirade. There’s a reason we keep our old locked up, it’s for the good of society.

    • @frog fur Honey, when all you can think to type as an “argument” is a lazy attempt at insults……you **might** need to consider the possibility that you have nothing to say.

    • Nevyn of OZ 1973 | May 13, 2020 at 10:27 PM | Reply

      All private prisons have minimum inmate level guaranteed. If the inmate level falls.many get penalty payments for the.government failing to keep the jail. Full enough.
