    One thing most Americans agree on, Trump is by far the most corrupt, criminal, and incompetent POTUS in all of American History.

      LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP!

      How hilariously ironic…

      @J. Lo My folks live in the burbs, so why exactly aren’t they safe? I’m not going to be a jerk to you like the other folks, I do not believe the Socratic method teaches or reaches adults. The Other Side (Democrats) want law and order and have said so. Blatantly. This is the first time my step-mother is voting Democrat. She was a hard headed Republican. I love my her to death… But to see her hurt and ashamed of her party, it breaks my heart. One thing we can all agree on, I hope, is no career politicians. If you break a law, you get put in jail. Does that seem fair and reasonable? We are at each other’s throats. What makes America great, no politican or political leader can do. It is up to us, to dig deep down to our inner Teddy Roosevelt and make America awesome ourselves.

      @7X HARDER I know it hard but please, I implore you to brandish some patience. We will never reach these folks if we are Socratically shameful to them. When we shame them they retreat. We have to be reasonable. I am just as irritated by it and what has happened. It is about more then just us. It’s about a better future, we can’t be at each other’s throats like this anymore.

      @michael Lampkin And for you… We need to be patient. These folks are afraid of change and albeit, I strongly disagree with them – in every way possible, but we will never win them over by shouting at them. I have been stirring sentiment to my coworkers, objectively by bringing up points to make them think about it. Shouting at them only makes their stance and ideas more rigid. Subversion and undermining their ideals subtly can be our best weapon. We are better then them and we have to demonstrate it. Let our votes do the talking. We can’t be on attack all the time. Hang tough and stay safe. Whether we like it or not, we are in this together with them.

      Well then you know what I think ~_^

  2. Let’s not forget that Flynn already pleaded guilty. Twice.

  3. The Barr is never low enough.

    • Ha!

    • Very good.

    • WHY BILL BARR WILL END UP BEHIND BARS
      July 28th, 2020- CONGRESSIONAL TESTIMONY TO CONGRESS

      “WHY” HE SAID ABOUT INVESTIGATING PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP, AFTER ADMITTING THAT HIS OWN INTERFERENCE IN ROGERS STONE SENTENCING WAS THE SAME AS HE TESTIFIED PREVIOUSLY TO CONGRESS THAT “A THE LAW DID NOT PROTECT PRESIDENT A PRESIDENT WHO USED THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT

      WILLIAM BARR IS THE WORST ENEMY OF UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION, UNITED STATES RULE OF LAW AND FREEDOM ALL AMERICANS. BILL BARR BELIEVES DONALD TRUMP IS ABOVE THE LAW. BILL BARR BELIEVE HE IS ABOVE THE LAW. BILL BARR IS THE MODERN DAY ROY COHN.

      ROY COHN DEFENDED SENATOR JOSEPH MCCARTHY

      ROY COHN DEFENDED DONALD J TRUMP

      BILL BARR DEFENDS DONALD J TRUMP AND ALL HIS CRIMINAL ASSOCIATES.

      THE FATE OF HISTORY WILL JUDGE BILL BARR EXACTLY LIKE ROY COHN.

      DISBARRED, BEHIND BARS AND A TRAITOR OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

    • The Barr Association is drunk.

  4. silvano novalis | August 31, 2020 at 9:23 PM | Reply

    Barr should be disbarred and indicted for obstruction and repeated cover-ups for Trump’s high crimes.

  5. Barr says “. . . and various other facts like that.” Not only is the attorney general a crook, he’s inarticulate.

    • @FAQX _ I’ve covered this in other posts. He was questioned without a lawyer present and he was told he was not under investigation. The original 302 document is missing, on and on irregularities. The durham investigation lawyer is a big key to this whole process. Too many details to go over on a holiday weekend.

    • @FAQX _ not easy to prosecute a past president. He knew of it, it’s totally obvious from his jan.5th oval office meeting.

    • @FAQX _ maybe you will now understand why I call the media corrupt. They cover up, not report on Democrats. Blatantly obvious.

    • @Lorilee Myers almost everything you’ve said through this entire comment section has been false or seriously misrepresented. When questioned your answer is to blame the media regardless of where our information came from. Flynn had lawyers present when he pled guilty in court. Do you have actual evidence of Obama being disbarred? It would help your credibility

    • @Lorilee Myers the media didn’t make Donald Trump look like a lifelong racist criminal. He did that all on his own

    He makes no sense what so ever. Why would you need to get someone to lie if they had done nothing. Lock Him Up!!!😂😂😂

  7. This is the same guy who was sacked by Trump for lying to the V.P, which Barr refused to articulate in that Fox News interview

  8. Valerie Watkins | August 31, 2020 at 11:43 PM | Reply

    Bill Flintstone Barr is such a terrible liar, just like his client Trump.

  9. Hampar Turfanda | August 31, 2020 at 11:48 PM | Reply

    What is amazing is that he gets away with all his doings. Along with his hirings

  10. Remember when the BLM protest was just a peaceful dude taking a knee at a NFL game?
    Remember when the USA coronavirus pandemic was “just one person coming in from China”?
    Yeah,
    me neither.

  11. “Did you have any undisclosed conversations or meetings with Russian nationals?”
    Flynn: “No, of course not”
    “Are you sure?”
    “No, I lied”
    Barr: They entrapped him, forced him to lie!

  12. OOPS. ..Don the Con loses again and one of his swamp rat’s must head back to court

  13. Google: HuffingtonPost revealed FOX 2014 Trump interview. He said that CHAOS is good for the country.
    This is CHAOS right now happening under Trump administration – racism, divisions among the people, unrest on the streets, truckloads n vehicles with Trump supporters churning violence in Kenosha, etc.
    They can’t deny it coz the cameras recorded everything on the internet.

  14. Flynn: *I did it! I’m guilty!*

    Barr: *there’s not evidence in this case so we’re going to drop it*

    • Lorilee Myers Seems like it’s not over yet doesn’t it? Btw rule 48a says a case can be dismissed if the Court says it can doesn’t it?

    • @Richard Hybels this case is definitely precedent setting, and not in a good way. They want him silent for sure. Rule 48A is usually to protect against prosecutorial harassment, not applicable in this case. Leave the court is an interesting play to extend the proceedings imho.

    • Lorilee Myers , I think you have it backwards on precedent. Reporter to Barr: “I the thousands of DOJ case Have you interceded in any other sentencing aside from Mr. Stone?” Barr “No”.

    • @Richard Hybels irregularities tends to cause interventions. JS we’ll see.

    • Lorilee Myers Why won’t you answer 5he simple question: Did Flynn talk to Kisliak and lie to FBI and Pence about it? Did he work for Turkey and lie about it? You won5 answer. You will come back with some nonsense. No matter what this band of crooks does you will invent a way to rationalize it and make it OK but why?

  15. Be a good day when Barr is charged with his treachery. and deceit.

  16. This is the most corrupt Administration in the U.S. history.

  17. Barr: “The sole purpose was to get him to lie”. And Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor lied about having phone calls with Russian officials. And that is irrelevant and “perfectly ok” with the Attorney General. Even when Flynn enters a plea bargain admitting to criminal guilt of lying to the US Congress and the FBI.

    Putin has them all box in.

    • LifeSavor ASMR | September 2, 2020 at 9:43 PM | Reply

      Exactly, like as National Security Advisor, he was such a disadvantaged and weak person, he was duped into lying by the big mean guys. Then his lawyers were duped into agreeing to a confession. Poor guy 🙄

  18. I look forward to seeing AG Barr in a court of law facing criminal charges in January.

  19. If Barr thinks Flynn is innocent, why doesn’t he just let justice take its course. Put up or shut up!!!

    • it did he was found Guilty and was imprisoned but Trump pardoned him like he told him he woud

    • its NOT whether barr or anyone else thinks flynn is innocent, no no no. the issue, as barr claims, is about the legitimacy of the evidence gathered against flynn, and how it was obtained; would make the evidence unusable. IE: a poor case that should not have continued. NOT about guilt or innocence, its about technicalities, and how they make the case against flynn… a waste of time.

    • Denny Barch It was not about technicalities until Barr got his orders from Trump and you know it. Don’t you understand the implications of a President using the Justice Department for and against his friends and enemies?

  20. Funny, Barr only sees things don’t add up when a republican criminal is being scrutinized. He ever talks for any democrats? Ever?
