  1. The most important thing we can do in this country is to keep GYM Jordan and Matt Gaetz away from our children.

    Did trump and the republican party really think this wouldn’t eventually come to light?

  3. The Republicans in Congress have a lot to answer for when they didn’t impeach 45.

  4. Trump had Russians in the White House!

    *a few hours from now*

    Trump: “who ? Paul ? I don’t know any Paul’s. I’m sure he’s a nice guy though and wish him well”

  6. We’ve known all along….the evidence is only now coming to light.

    • @N 827 you must be going through a lot

    • Kinda like election fraud isn’t it?

    • @N 827 I’m quite sure she’s capable of reading because I can read and I would have said the same thing she did. Maybe she replied “what?” because it’s unclear why you decided to state your unsolicited assumptions about her political affiliation. All she did was comment about getting to see evidence involved in the case while still alive. In no way, shape or form does that mean she is a Democrat. Seems to me you’re just desperate for some attention. Do you need someone to talk to? Are you ok?

    • @N 827 Is it not exhausting putting so much effort into being a tool? Are you reimbursed or is this just a hobby?

      @N 827 Are you a cultist, or just stupid?

    Wow. Treason for criminal individual 1.

    We all knew that dope didn’t win without cheating on 2016.

    • I doubt it made that much difference in the final outcome, although in a close election you never know.

    • TRump didn’t win in 2016. Millions of votes were suppressed. In Michigan, for example, Trump probably lost by 250,000 votes.

    The Russian hoax was not a hoax, just as we thought

    “Do you think Putin will be going to The Miss Universe Pageant in November in Moscow? If so, will he become my new best friend?”

    – Donald J. Trump

    “Well, we don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia.”

    – Eric Trump, 2014

    • Thank you for posting this. Sometimes I wonder if people forget all of that. I also would love to know why no one talks about the “secure communication” Kushner tried establishing through the Russian embassy in DC before 45 even took office.

    • Eric and Ivanka made many suspicious visits to Russia during the years before the election.

    • Victoria Williams | April 15, 2021 at 9:49 PM | Reply

      @D M Thank-you and OP for reminding me of these things! So much has happened it’s easy to lose track of everything.

    • @Victoria Williams And the Trump Tower meeting..

    Justice is going to be served and those Republicans that closed their eyes and ears now better open their minds or what’s left !!

  13. What an odd country when a person can work with a foreign government to gain the highest office in the land, and the investigation services have information of said collusion, and NOBODY does anything to call out that the person who “won” the election gets to be in charge, unencumbered, for the whole of the four years. That is simply insane.

      @Elaine Daprano
      Do tell, you’re obviously so much better informed. Or is it a secret that you’re sworn not to tell ? !!

      I totally agree. Spy novels and international intrigue movies always paint THE OTHER, FOREIGN entity as the evil ENEMY. That has been a great diversion. It has been as plain as day for many years that the true, treasonous, corrupt and very DANGEROUS enemies of the United States are totally WITHIN our own country. Modern, entertainment addicted America, at its peril, has forgotten how to take TREASON AND SEDITION seriously.

      They called it out but they kept saying no one could testify because it was a matter of national security, and then started the blaming of a dem witch hunt because he got off.

    • If the criminal was a Obama or a black then they would have been in prison already. Shame on them and karma never forgets!

    • @Christine Quinn You have hit the nail on the head, well stated.

  14. Never forget: for 4 years, we had a Manchurian candidate puppet as President

  15. Joe Rodriguez | April 15, 2021 at 9:37 PM | Reply

    So it is now fair to say that we had Putin in OUR White House for four years. Unbelievable.

  16. I believe this is one reason trump was so surprised that he lost 2020, because he probably had the Russians working to keep him in office.

    • Kathleen Mitchell | April 15, 2021 at 10:02 PM | Reply

      @Red Dwarf Always, always knew that. The smart money was on Joe, four years of t**** nearly did us in.

    • And not only the Russians..


    • Thankfully we had a good guy heading homeland security. If you remember trump fired!!!

    • He dismantled the organization charged with making sure the walk in machines werent hacked (he did this in feb of 2017 right after he took office he was planning to cheat in 2020)…green lighting the Russians to hack in. This is why he was so against the mail in ballot….those he couldnt change. Hence his war on the post office. He thought he had it in the bag…….except for Chris Krebs the US security computer nerd who prevented the russians from their plan. This guy needs a statue in DC. He saved our democracy. He never let trump know he found the plot & foiled it, until AFTER the election….when he was promptly fired.

    What is it dump said about how traitors should be dealt with? Something about firing squads?

    Thankyou to all those Americans that braved the pandemic, stood in lines for hours under duress from insurrectionists, you’ve protected your democracy against evil, corrupt individuals. Hopefully the lesson has been cemented for future generations. Now we wait for justice, and if it doesn’t come soon, elect those that will bring it to fruition.

    • Boris Karloff | April 15, 2021 at 10:47 PM | Reply

      How much duress and oppression did you have to endure? 😄🤡🤪

    • Sharilynne Crocker | April 15, 2021 at 10:53 PM | Reply

      @Boris Karloff any is too much.

    • As political commentator and former Republican presidential advisor Mark McKinnon so aptly put it recently, “The Republican party is at dysfunction junction.” May disagree with conservative ideology and with their stances on many issues, but do value and respect LOYAL opposition–a duty that the GOP has for too long forgotten and abdicated, putting personal and party interests before country. That is not only harmful to their party, it is harmful to our democracy and institutions. And it has come to represent a clear a present danger to our nation, a serious threat to our very security.

      All of this is mentioned because it is firmly believed that this is not a time for diplomatic, soft-spoken words. This is not a time to be timid or Pollyannaish about our current political landscape, but a time for frankness, a time for acknowledgment of defects, a time for courageously confronting stark unpleasant realities. Our democracy is a fragile construct, only as sturdy, vibrant, and enduring as we maintain it, requiring constant vigilance and due diligence. Just as we don’t forget Pearl Harbor, or 9/11, even more so the attack against our nation’s Capitol on January 6, 2021 by fascist Reich-wing domestic terrorists incited to insurrection by a deranged President against his own government must never be forgotten or forgiven.

      Thus, we MUST condemn both cowardly, corrupt Republican so-called “leaders” defying truth, justice, duty, democracy, and Constitution–and their dysfunctional political party that behaves as a cult–in the strongest possible terms, using the most muscular language that can be mustered. For it is necessary; the very fate of our nation depends upon it. Disaster was narrowly averted with the defeat of Trump, with Democratic control of the House and Senate, but the battle for the soul of this nation is far from over, and we must never again allow ourselves to become complacent. And so it is vitally imperative that we remind each other of this, that we impress these things upon our children and fellow citizens of this nation.

      Call this civic barbarism. Instead of promoting the values of responsible citizenship, Trump, Republican leadership, and their media enablers have elevated and blessed the very worst among us. They are making many Americans less suited for self-government and more dangerous to their neighbors. And they are doing so for the reason some of the Founders most feared: To lead the mob against true democracy.”
      ~ Michael Gerson, from _’Trumpism is American Fascism’_

      Still have 71m to make them understand.

    • You seem so nice! I hate to slam you Scotch but have you been paying attention Buddy? The majority of the GOP & it’s voting base learned NOTHING for the insurrection & they’ve taken NO responsibility for the events of that day. Did you notice how many senators continued to insist on the Big Lie on Jan 6th even HOURS AFTER the insurrection they continued to insist on the lie & mess with the certification process. These people go on Fox & they’ve so bastardized the events of that day, one could easily assume it was an afternoon picnic and uptight Democrats are pushing “fake news” not a violent insurrection with deaths & serious injuries. A woman was trampled to death! The majority of the people that were arrested will take plea deals & disappear into the ether but some may become matyrs to some conservatives/neo-Nazi’s.
      No, they didn’t learn a lesson but they learned and next time because there WILL be a next time, they will show up better prepared & more organized. There are Capital buildings in every state.

  19. Release the redacted portions of the Mueller report which clearly shows there was no exoneration at all and charge the seditionist in chief

    So this means that January 6th, 2021 was Trump’s second attempt to steal an election.
