    His lawyers need a bed in the corridor.

  2. I cannot imagine this or any other Supreme Court agreeing with a claim of “ABSOLUTE IMMUNITY”. Trump’s crack legal team has their work cut out for them.

      You don’t know these fascist judges. They are the same ones who dispensed “justice” under Hitler..

      @Richard Heikkila Or played Trump for the fool he is .

    • Trump has a crack legal team in that Trump’s legal team appears to be on crack.

    • Could you have imagined a court will to even hear these cases when the lower courts had already ruled well? I can barely imagine Roberts planning to use these cases to repair any damage the Senate does. But that seems a huge gamble all things considered.

  3. No one is above. This includes king trump.

    What happened to the republic?

      @ramayaruk Democrats have been trying to IMPEACH Trump for anything since the second day of the election. He got elected on Cleaning up Washington, and they don’t like it. Not only did Joe Biden make a shady deal with Burisma to make millions, but Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry’s sons were involved. Then when the Ukrainian prosecutor that’s been looking into the corruption gets fired over 1 billion Taxpayers dollars were withheld if he wasn’t fired!!! A real QUID PRO QUO!! He admitted to it on national television!! Now Liberals are trying to get him elected?? INSANE!!

    • @William Wolski tRump is only interested in himself…. no one else. Lock him up NOW… before he destroys the whole country. 😝😝😝

      @Jim P He’s saving our country from Globalist Elitist that want a one world government!! Destroying our Sovereignty! Democrats are destroying our Constitution! Gun grabbing, Freedom of speech, Socialism!! NO THANKS! Nationalist, not a Globalist! The media is controlled by the same Elitists. Watch MyronCFagen on YouTube. His speech is from 1967. He predicted everything that’s going today. And who’s behind it.

    Nothing to hide…..most transparent person ever…errrrrr maybe not.

  5. A raw and jaw-dropping example of what a pathological liar sounds like.

    Trump’s 2015 interview with host Michael Savage, Trump was asked again point-blank whether he’d ever met Putin.
    “Yes,” Trump said. “One time, yes. Long time ago.”
    “Got along with him great, by the way,” Trump added.
    “I got to know so many of the Russian leaders, the top top people in Russia,” he said.

    At a July, 2016 press conference, at the height of the general election campaign, Trump denied ever having met the Russian leader.
    “I never met Putin, I don’t know who Putin is,” he told reporters in Florida. “He said one nice thing about me. He said I’m a genius. I said, ‘Thank you very much’ to the newspaper, and that was the end of it. I never met Putin. Never spoken to him. I don’t know anything about him other than he will respect me.”

    David Letterman asked Trump in a 2013 interview if had ever met Putin.
    Trump: “Well I’ve done a lot of business with the Russians,” Trump said. “He’s a tough guy. I met him once,” said Trump.

    Feb. 17, 2016: At a rally, Trump insists he has no relationship with Putin. “I have no relationship with him other than he called me a genius,” Trump says. “He said, ‘Donald Trump is a genius, and he is going to be the leader of the party, and he’s going to be the leader of the world or something.’”

    Trump’s July 2016 interview with George  Stephanopoulos           

    STEPHANOPOULOS: “Yet you said for three years, ’13, ’14 and ’15, that you did have a relationship with Putin.”
    TRUMP: “No, look, what — what do you call a relationship? I mean he treats me…”
    STEPHANOPOULOS: “I’m asking you.”
    TRUMP: “with great respect. I have no relationship with Putin. I don’t think I’ve ever met him. I never met him. I don’t think I’ve ever met him.”
    STEPHANOPOULOS: “You would know if you did.”
    TRUMP: “I think so.”
    STEPHANOPOULOS: “I mean if he…”
    TRUMP: “Yes, I think so. So I’ve — I don’t think I’ve ever met him. I mean if he’s in the same room or something. But I don’t think so.”

    If anyone still had any doubt as to whether or not you can believe anything that Trump says, I hope this clears everything up.

    As it’s been said: ‘Never in history has anyone tried so hard NOT to be proven innocent.’

    Not holding my breath for this SCOTUS to actually uphold the rule of law. Stacking the deck in the judiciary is the one thing this “administration” has been effective at… aside from mispronunciation and lying, of course

    • @Michael Schwartz pretty sure obstruction of congress isn’t a law. And even if it is, We’ve got 3 equal branches of government, right? Obstruction of one over the other sounds like a judicial issue

    • eurekajim #VoteBlue2020 | December 13, 2019 at 7:51 PM | Reply

      @David Hunt We don’t have 3 equal branches of Gov’t when one of them doesn’t obey the Law and Obstruction of Congress is indeed a Law, Yuri.

    • @eurekajim #VoteBlue2020 it’s an issue of article i vs article ii. Presidents as the chief executive have been doing this since Washington

    • eurekajim #VoteBlue2020 | December 13, 2019 at 8:06 PM | Reply

      @David Hunt Yeah, your “President is Dictator” theory, Yuri.

    Whatever advantages are bestowed upon this president, it will be no time before the new Democrat president will be enjoying them too.

  9. There is NOOOO question about the role of Congress in oversight of ALLL branches of government.

    • Republican SCOTUS clearly shows , they are just partisan hacks and playing time , its not like they could not make decision before Xmas , it takes them 6 months ?
      It was never intended that SCOTUS makes the laws , just decision by the laws .

  10. trump gets russia money thats why he would not like to have his financial records been seen. If he gets away with what he has done and what he is doing now the is no justice in the WH anymore

    • Never really was, rich politicians especially republicans are filthy, look how they killed JFK and lied about everything up to this day. We know more, but its worst, majority of the filthy players are dead if not all, but their litter is still here lying and blocking!!!!

    • —-> Here’s some evidence for their case:
      Secret GOP Audio In 2016: ‘I Think Vladimir Putin Pays Donald Trump | The Last Word | MSNBC (May 17, 2017) /watch?v=azLu98RtnGw

    • 👎😔 he is getting away with it he just made himself king are yall asleep?.. wheres your OUTRAGE America 🤷‍♀️ ????

  11. There’s no reason for the American people to trust the Supreme Court anymore. The majority of the court has no respect for the _letter_ of America’s laws, let alone the _spirit_ of America’s laws. The right wing wants a Tzar, and Moscow Mitch stole the Supreme Court so that they would be able to impose exactly that.

    Delay tactic! Nixon had to give up his tapes, Treasontrump has to give up his records!!!

  13. Bert And Ernie | December 13, 2019 at 7:21 PM | Reply

    They’ll protect him. He has friends and Republicans on The Surpreme Court.
    They’re no more fair than your local traffic court.

    • Actually the SCOTUS will side with he democrats; they have to abide by the law, or change it permanently, and they wont do that, the system works, at least in this respect.

    • Bert And Ernie …. Sadly, you are probably right.
      What’s with the president appointing judges?
      Our systems needs a revamp.

    • @Tidbit You put a lot of faith in the moral standing of screaming crying partisan drunk rapists.

  14. He too chicken to show his “perfect beautiful tax returns”

  15. What happened to the bloated tangerine being the most transparent president ever? 🤔

    How this can be even a question when somebody who followed orders is already in jail.

    • dutchpy dutchpy I was arrested for complying. I will not comply to arrests for being correct about not being guilty.

    Well, well, well… Paint me blue & call me, babe!

    And, btw, those are not HIS lawyers, he’s not paying them a penny. We the taxpaying suckers are paying the bill for both sides.

  18. WTF! What are they doing till March. Talk about delay tactics. Schiff was right, it always take 8 months to hear a case. The SCOTUS is a joke.

  19. The Supreme Court is going to put the official tombstone on the grave of US democracy.

    Trump’s guilty of everything he won’t let you see. There’s no other reason he would be fighting it.
