    1. @Jamie Thomas do you actually think the impeachment had any due process at all and was not 100% political? If you think that, then you are a fool

    2. @Coach Kenny ONeal Actually acquitted means exactly that, they failed to prove guilt because a partisan impeachment was never going to succeed, literally everyone knew it was going to fail. Except for you I guess.

    1. @MrChris7582 Now you are just straight up lying! Trump reimbursed Cohen for paying Stormy Daniels the $130,000 in hush money! Cohen swore to it under oath before Congress, and has personally signed checks by Trump as evidence!! Even Rudy Giuliani admitted that Trump paid Cohen back for the hush money payments to Stormy on Sean Hannity!! Stop being a naive troll!

    2. @MrChris7582 Cohen was a criminal for doing Trump’s bidding, moron!! Why do you think Trump was named as an unindicted coconspirator!? Trump was literally referred to as “Individual 1” in the case!! Had Trump not been president, he’d have been sitting right next to Cohen in jail!!!

    3. @nicholas ferrante really? lets start. First, putting the most corrupt millionaires in high posts, just because they made big “campaign contributinons”. Remember Betsy Devos? And remember when he tried to blackmail ukraine and got rid of the ambassador, who was a very respected woman with a long carreer in politics? he wanted them to investigate hunter biden and blackmailed them by denying the millions of dollars in approved help funds to their country. That is just the beginning. He pardoned manafort, his corrupt campaign director who was convicted of so many tax and fraud related charges that there isnt any point on trying to name them here. Trump was surrounded by crooks, and Its kinda weird that after all the corrupt things he did before and after he became president, most president dont even remember or care to admit what kind of person that guy is. We all knew eho he was, really weird to se millions of people worshipping this clear corrupt human as he was jesus.

    4. @thegreatone lol your triggered. they didnt find anything to convict trump. maybe just maybe the money trump gave cohen was for his lawyer expertise. if trump was found of wrong doing he would have been impeached of after presidentcy put in jail. that would have been a clear cut campaign finance law violation. if true. the Democrats dont even mention it anymore. joe biden didnt even bring it up in the debates. you have to ask why.. thats alls I am saying. they didnt prove he did that beyond doubt. he didnt even get to the point of indictment. why? maybe he didnt do anything wrong….

    5. @Guillermo Rodriguez and I suppose you don’t think that Joe has done the exact same things. For example, how many Biden appointees are “corrupt ” millionaires? How about when Joe told the Ukraine that they wouldn’t get the billion dollars in aid unless they stopped investigating his crackhead son, Hunter. Terrible is allowing four Americans to be murdered in Benghazi for political gain and you’ve got to ask Hillary, Obama and Biden how that burden feels. Terrible is allowing American cities to burn and not lifting a finger to stop it. Terrible is allowing over 20 Democrat led cities to “defund” their police and then try to blame the opposing Party for sky rocketing crime rates, thanks joe.

  1. If you look at the description, it reads as follows: ” *No charges against Donald Trump himself* “

    1. @Dirty Red we can start with the blind devotion to a lie. Then there’s the absence of reality in every aspect of their political beliefs.

      But what tops it off is the self proclaimed “patriots” throwing a hissy fit and assaulting the capitol because they were brainwashed into believing said lie.

    2. @What’s His Name?
      Trump has been out of office for less than six months. This is the first step. It is a smart move by Cy Vance and gives him a lot of options and charges against Trump can be filed later. An indictment against the Trump organization does indicate criminal wrong doing by Trump and his organization.

  2. There’s a lot of rich people that are committing tax evasion they should open cases on all of the rich like big tech companies.

    1. Hey, they’re just smarter than the common working bees of this country. Nice people don’t win in this world. Stop living in your child fantasy world of being coddled by your parents at the age of 30.

    2. Absolutely! We know why the powers that be are going after President Trump, and it’s to try to keep him from winning the Presidency in 2024! The majority of the American people are not stupid!!!


  3. “The Constitution is the guide which I never will abandon. There is nothing which can better deserve your patronage, than the promotion of science and literature. Knowledge is in every country the surest basis of public happiness. Laws made by common consent must not be trampled on by individuals.”George Washington

    1. yeah, that quote is pretty much made for trump as a model of what not to do, all of which he would ultimately do. and as a result of trump’s special blend of arrogance, obliviousness and phony put on ‘patriotism’, he undoubtedly quoted Washington several times (although probably incorrectly unless he read the quote immediately before speaking, but probably even then.), having no idea, because of the whole oblivious thing, that Washington would almost certainly have thought trump was a disgrace. and then trump carried on no doubt thinking he was honoring him.

    2. You missed one important thing trump is a CON MAN and who personally has NEVER HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR ANYTHING.

    3. ​@Pierre Powers *_”Just remember, what you are seeing and what you are reading is not what’s happening”_*

      Literally a verbatim quote from your cult leader.

      There was a time when I would try to reason with people like you. You are my compatriot, and you deserve to know and understand the facts. But, sadly I’ve realized that you are virtually all beyond any concept of *reason,* and that ever since _”alternative facts”_ was accepted by the cult (as if it were a thing that could actually exist) things like *_”the truth”_* just don’t matter any more.

      *_”The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.”_*
      ― George Orwell, 1984

    4. @X – Force how can you sit here and say you want to reason with anyone and say I have a cult leader. You don’t know my political stand point nor do you care because no matter what evidence is brought up your mind has already been made up. I can prove it by you answering one question, George Floyd case should the cop BY LAW be charged with all the three charges he faced?

  4. How do these people take themselves seriously after 4 years of saying the same thing and nothing ever happens. They sound as crazy as Q saying Trump will be president soon, just you wait.

  5. You know things have gotten bad when even your lawyer admits defeat

    1. you realize they aren’t filing any criminal charges…. or maybe you only watch this horrid news channel

  6. The former blogger *with the help of Sessions & Barr* nearly wrecked the place completely.
    Much work needs to be done to strengthen the DOJ in order to protect this democracy.
    Holding those who perpetrated attacks against us from within must be & will be, held accountable.

    1. I agree that’s why the Republicans don’t want a commission to find out the truth because they help Trump with Insurrection and the Pentagon that’s why there were no National Guards in place on Jan. 06, 2021.

  7. are trump’s lawyers being paid upfront or are they prepared to be stiffed for the honour of representing a truly great man.ha ha.

  8. They have to start from here…then after the co is indicated it will work its way up to Trump…..that is just how it works

  9. It’s like a legal game of Jenga. They take out a block at a time until the whole thing collapses.

  10. I think after reading all the books that I have lately about DT et al that I have more evidence that the DoJ seems to have…and I live in UK!

  11. Does this whole situation make anyone else constantly remember, “They caught Al Capone on tax evasion.” ?

    1. I totally agree. It was not the murders or the assault and battery that did Al Capone in. It was the tax evasion.

    2. It reminds me of “show me the man and I’ll show you the crime” -Lavrentiy Beria, KGB. The fact is, pretty much anyone could be found guilty of a crime if you investigated them enough, you and me included. But the thing about the American justice system is that we don’t investigate people, we investigate crimes. The fact that they’ve been investigating Trump for at least 6 years now and haven’t found anything is remarkable, but it’s also DEEPLY disturbing; we’re in banana republic territory.

    3. @c You wrote: “The fact is, pretty much anyone could be found guilty of a crime if you investigated them enough” and “Trump for at least 6 years now and haven’t found anything is remarkable”

      That is not how it works here. Mueller found and documented ten instances of obstruction of justice committed by Trump but could not indict him because of the OLC’s opinion that you cannot indict a sitting president. Mueller testified under oath that he would have indicted Trump but for this OLC opinion. Trump also blocked his financial records from the NY investigators. Trump has been out of office for less than six months so they have not had the full records for very long. Trump blocked these records while he was president. Indicting someone on tax fraud in six months is moving VERY fast. One to three years is more typical.

      Long investigations sometimes exonerate people. Look at Comey’s report on the Clinton investigation. The crime the MAGA Morons accused her of requires intent and Comey stated that they could not find intent, thus she was not indicted even though she has been investigated many times and for a long time.

    4. @DR There literally aren’t any crimes that require intent, you’ll still get charged with the same thing except maybe with an “unintentional” in front of it. Unless that is if you’re above the law. So if Mueller, who in his testimony it seems wasn’t even aware of the specifics of the investigation or even where he was, had found indictable offenses that couldn’t be used against a sitting President…. Why hasn’t Trump been indicted yet?

  12. I believe indicting the company and some execs and employees is an easier way to get people to flip. They might think the DA is bluffing so when they are actually charged it brings in the reality.

  13. Geeezzzz he’s a dam American and not one AMERICAN is ABOVE the LAW,. NOBODY, NOT EVEN THIS CROOK!!!

    1. @I’m AllOneWord Can’t get pardoned for this. Can’t get a pardon for anything brought by a State. Only for charges brought (or that might brought) by the Federal Government.

  14. The longer this goes on, the more Trumpty and his co-conspirators will be able to ring-fence their assets from seizure.
