Trump Crime? Bombshell New Testimony Reveals DOJ Pressure To Support ‘Big Lie’

The former Georgia U.S. Attorney, who was forced to resign two days after Trump’s infamous call asking Georgia’s Secretary of State to find him votes, testified he resigned after DOJ officials warned him 'Trump intended to fire him for refusing to say that widespread voter fraud had been found' in the state, according to reporting by The New York Times. MSNBC’s Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber is joined by former federal prosecutor Paul Butler to discuss the latest update in the Senate probe on Trump’s campaign to overturn the 2020 election.

  1. “The oddity in all of this is the people Trump despises most, love him the most.”

    – Howard Stern

    1. Stern is a drug addict, who cares?

      Trump gave us peace and prosperity. Biden doesn’t know what day of the week it is.

    2. He created a cult. He targeted the poorly educated and the Evangelicals because they have no critical thinking skills.
      He pretended he loved them, even said at one of his rallies ” we love the poorly educated” I believe hed have no problem taking them to a jungle to live and drink poison for him.

    3. @Lee Valley Thats because the whole thing is unprecedented.
      What happened is America is big news.! Its huge and should never have been allowed to happen.

    4. @Wayne Cameron Yep! The same Howard Stern who knows Donald Trump because he spoke to him numerous times on his radio show. You should listen to every bit of audio you can find of Trump’s appearances on Sterns’ show. If you’re someone of average or better intelligence, I’m certain you’ll be able to figure out precisely what kind of a person Trump is.

    1. @Zoya M Give it up, hack. Your comments are tired and played out.

      Are you even American? What troll app do you use, the IDF one?

    1. @Luke_SkyWanker rebubliKKKan rats are most concerned with protecting their own laundered russian rubles.

    2. @ANGELIA HEGER The people who voted this diabolical creature into office. That is where everything went wrong.

    1. @Zoya M What does your comment have to do with the subject??? Corporations got HUGE handouts from Trump. 2018 tax reduction from 36% to 21% for them come to mind ? That was a REPUBLICAN move there.

    2. @loghauler98 Is this a Biden comment? Your information is from FOX news and not correct. The XL pipeline was not even built yet, so NO effect on fuel prices. The laws of Supply and Demand are at play here.

  2. Maybe electing a reality TV host who dodged the draft,
    is a compulsive liar,
    and cheats at golf
    was a bad idea.

    1. Hey Hairy Nosepicker,
      Are you an I/DD adult? It’s only a joke; are you too confused or senile to realize that. Here’s a joke you can understand .

      God asks Bush: “What do you believe in?”
      Bush answers: “I believe in the free market, and the strong American nation!”
      “Very well,” says God. “Come sit to my right.”
      Next, God asks Obama: “What do you believe in?”
      Obama answers: “I believe in the power of democracy, and equal rights for all.”
      “Good,” says God. “You shall sit to my left.”
      Finally, God asks Trump: “What do you believe in?”
      Trump answers: “I believe you’re sitting in my chair.”

      (Snickers at a fool.)@terry harker

    2. Hey senile Nosepicker,
      It’s only a joke; are you too confused and senile to realize that?@Bobby Zwicharowski

    3. @B B Please try to understand that, under US law, President Trump must be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Since has has not been proven guilty we must presume he is innocent. Therefore, please do not say he carried out criminal activities. Thank you.

    4. @B B I agree with you that Trump and the trumpettes [Jarod, Barr, Jordan,] are more of the visible buboes than the _Yersinia pestis_ organism, but I don’t think another legal patch will prevent another infection.

      We’ve had lots of “never again”- type legislation and by and large, it’s been useful…BUT, like a disease vector, corruption is always at work developing its own “Delta variants” to subvert the intent of the new laws.

      I’ve gotta go with Master K’ung (Confucius) on this: “laws are required because people lack virtue” — but — “A government of good men is superior to one of good laws.”

      I suppose in K’ung’s day it was up to the king to find good administrators, but our situation requires that the people play a role, ably impeded by pollsters, “influencers,” lobbyists, Fox News, and Big Money.

      Getting bills through Congress is child’s play compared to getting virtue into the proletariat, but it must be done if we are to enjoy even limited immunity to demagogues.

      The instrument of this vaccination is *_education._* Real, professional, compulsory, “can’t participate until you pass” education.

      Yeah, some of that would feel a lot like indoctrination, but that’s the breaks. Twenty-first Century science is too far along for people to be voting with the notions that “Evolution is just a theory” or “Voting machines are connected to Jewish space lasers.”

      We have the resources today to raise every person above low-functioning moron to the intellectual exposure of a Greek orator. We should be about that.

    1. You tell me, Junior. There IS a reason but you’re unaware what in the world it might be. Gotta be something evil and sleazy though; right? Something from your worst nightmare, I’ll bet.
      Does Trump ever come around your place late at night, clawing at your windows and whispering Satanic incantations, and when you sit up and look at the window you see two red, glowing eyes piercing into your mind and soul? That’s one of the ways Republicans can gitcha, you know. I think UNDER the bed is a safer place for you and Pikachu.

  3. Oh maga, don’t worry.
    We will get through this as one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all who were a victim of trump’s corruption.

    1. @Zoya M Why are you people obssessed with Hunter’s private affairs? And who is paying for the deaths of 600,000 Americans?

    2. Better question, how much does the trump organization profited from him misusing his status and position as a president, hunter’s so called 500k is a dime compared to how much trump’s company profited

    3. @Zoya M why would I be concerned about Hunter? He has no position in the WH. You need to worry about the 72 million Ivanka nd Jared made while federal employees and the 400 mil PPP loan he got that was forgive, how about that?

    4. @Dave Gilmour Ask Cuomo to pay for theose deaths.
      Hunter is the big guy’s son you moron. They are profiting off Biden’s political clout forever. How do you think Jill Biden can afford $2000 shoes.

  4. Not Big Lie. That’s too impotent for what is going on. Call it: —- Dangerous Lie. Deadly Lie. Traitorous Lie.

    1. @Eric Martin that i agree with, china should have made the world aware at lot sooner. but they didn’t. and now we have to vaccinate and mask up. good old doctrine of communist infallibility… soviets did it with chernobly, china did it with a zoonotic disease.

    2. @Eric Martin blah blah, you’re the kind of guy who’d buy into Mike Lindell and his China voting machine hack. Trump told a whole raft of lies, especially in his last year of office. His attempts to weaponize the DOJ, according to Rosen should frighten you a lot more than China. We dodged an orange bullet getting him out of office, a very selfish and corrupt man.
      Most Trump supporters don’t fact check if I’m honest, they tend not to do independent research of their own. They believe stupid “facts” too like the number of counties Trump won vs Biden means Trump really won the election. They don’t do stats very well either, eg number of mail in ballots received than sent out in Pennsylvania. They’ll believe edited video clips on social media, eg ANTIFA being bussed in to infiltrate the Capitol riot. Essentially, they are generally very gullible and tend to believe stuff that they WANT to believe.

    3. @Paul Pashley i know the vast majority of video evidence from January 6th still had not been released. i know people that were charged with crimes related to January 6th has gotten nothing more than trespass and criminal mischief convictions. i dont know what to believe but the facts so far tells me it was not as bad as Democrats say and the lack of released evidence tells me things are being hidden.

    4. @Eric Martin Just watch the hours of video, of cops getting assaulted, no need to pay attention to what Democrats say. Patriots should watch an attack like that to remind them how fragile democracy can be. To support a man that escalated the claims of election fraud so much that people lost their lives is a complete travesty. I just don’t understand how anyone could support him. Being a Republican back in the day meant that you support law and order.

  5. So why is the criminal Trump still allowed to run around town and on top of that plant other insurrections come on arrest him it’s time already enough lock him up

  6. When will enough be enough? Trump and his enablers (Giuliani, Meadows, Clark, Mo Brooks, Gaetz, etc) need to be indicted NOW. I have almost no faith in our criminal justice system when it comes to the rich and politically connected. Prove me wrong, please.

  7. I’ll be a surprise if they are hold accountable for what they did. This is a great opportunity to set an example. Hold them accountable.

    1. @Wayne Cameron Please. I AM a scientist. And I can assure you, there are no Jewish Space Lasers, and the sound from windmills can’t give you cancer. What else you got?

    2. @Tracii Kunkel Are you a scientist working for the military? Is that how you know so much about black projects? When you do a search to learn about something on the fly it’s probably not wise to just go ahead and swallow whatever you read, no matter how much you wish it true. If I was a windmill manufacturer I also would strongly disavow any chance of them causing cancer, as did cigarette and cellphone manufacturers until we learned the truth. Your turn.

    3. @Wayne Cameron Actually, I AM a scientist for the DOD. I’ll tell you what sweetheart, why don’t you share your “science”, instead of just insulting people? I know, I know, “youtube won’t allow it.” The fact is that you don’t know any science, you don’t know anything really. You’ve heard some sketchy people tell you sketchy things and tell you that you can’t trust real scientists – only them. Nevernind that you have no idea what cancer is, or how to use any semblance of logic. Cancer is a disease that reprograms the body at a molecular level. It is physical. Nicotine is a chemical that you are ingesting into the cells of your body. It has molecules. Sound waves do not. Sound waves can disrupt cell structure while present, but they do not infest the body and rewrite cellular development. There are many many studies on this.

    4. @Wayne Cameron I do have to give you some credit though – you’re the first Trump cultist I’ve come across with the balls to actually admit that they do believe this nonsense.

    5. @Tracii Kunkel Now why’d you have to go and call me a name? Hold on a sec, let me get situated. OK…
      When I read your words I get a distinct picture in my mind of a not-quite-mature house-monkey perched atop a chair in front of a computer monitor. It’s head is thrown back in a horrible grimace and with a little spittle and foam around its mouth, it’s eyes blank and staring as if in a psychotic trance while shrieking and chattering as only small, immature monkeys can, and it’s jabbing furiously at the keyboard with all 20 digits. In fact, the image is so strong that’s all I can see when I think of you and so I hereby bestow upon you the nickname “Chatter-monk” and when you reply (and I KNOW you will after this verbal beatdown I just gave you) I’ll refer to you only by that name and with that picture continuing in my head. Write back real soon so I can test it out.

  8. We need change so that no President is in a position to walk through loop holes. We presumed people wouldn’t elect a criminal to OOP.

  9. I told everyone I know the U. S ATTORNEY was forced to resign. Georgia Governor kemp was apart of it,but decided against it thinking of his future.

    1. @Colin ConnellyAnd I believe, he can tell the difference between difference and differences. And “It’s and Its”.

  10. “Moral courage is the most valuable and usually the most absent characteristic in men (people)”–
    General George Patton

  11. I once almost once got arrested for riding my motorcycle without my M endorsement yet, while this guy has grabbed women’s snatches, committed bank and tax fraud and tried to destroy democracy by committing Treason and violating his oath to the Constitution………..and he’s playing Golf.

    1. @Todd’s Tropicals In tRump’s own words “I could *sheeyoot somebody on 5th avenue and wouldn’t lose any voters”.

      Many not having a problem with a *fyring squad would be poetic justice 😂

    2. Javier, he is a wealthy man who has wealthy friends and associates. “They” take care of their own. Enjoy your motorcycle.

    3. @Todd’s Tropicals Back when T was first elected, I had a friend who was in the military. He knew what T was even then. I seriously talked him down from doing something “stupid” to fix the problem. He was a sniper.

      Considering how many have died in the pandemic due to all the political crap and misinformation…not sure that was the best call.

    1. Or Treason?
      People got hung drawn and quartered in Tudor England for far less.
      Time to revive the practice I’d say.

    2. Because it isn’t. Is your last thought on Earth going to be Donald Trump? LOL. You’re obsessed with him. LOL.

  12. The GOP continues to embrace their “Orange God”– One can no longer use “reason” to understand this atrocity in plain sight.

    1. Are you saying this bc you were frightened by Ol’ Smarmy Joe’s threat of using Nukes and F-15s against Americans in order to get his way? Don’t worry, he was only making a little joke. Ha-ha, real funny.

    2. @Wayne Cameron Consider this we have a senile, pervert with his hands on the Nuclear football. They have probably had to explain to him that Florida and Texas are states, not enemy countries, and he cannot nuke them. Yeah sure, “Joey” won the election😂 Meanwhile back at the ranch, Hunter was heard to say, “Has anyone seen my 2d laptop?”
