  1. It’s ironic that you had a revolution to rid you of Kings who could act without restraint only, it seems, to find yourselves with a President even less accountable

  2. Did Trump’s lawyers just imply he committed crimes? 🤦‍♂️

    • Biggus, those lawyers are headed for the underside of the PussyGrabber2 bus if past form is a guide.

    • No, they just made a reducto ad absurdum argument which the press took out of context to push their political agenda because they know the idiots who still listen to them always take them at their word and never check their facts. 🙂

    MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.. IMPEACH 🇺🇸💙🇺🇸

    • literally Trump for me would be the only American Bolsonaro; -;

    • @tainty freshness yeah, and it was only kool-aid cosby put in his dates drinks.🙄

    • @tainty freshness keep your -whatever- deep down in the swamp – too much food down there for your kind

      @San Geet Too much food and it’s free? Socialists wet dream right there. Hand outs for everyone.. Thought that was your thing.. But it aint mine. And the swamp needs to be drained of thw swamp monsters (dems) who have successfully cried about trump for the last 3 year’s…thought all of you would run out of tears by now…all that crying is probably what started climate change..to many snowflakes melting. Vote Trump 2020 trump JR. 2024

    • @tainty freshness Typical words and phrases from the data collection companies from sick social media in works in comments

  4. So impeaching Clinton was pointless as well then? Accordingly, there was no point since perjury is only just a crime.

  5. Murder is murder no matter who it is even if he is the President.

    • No, if you murder a president it is called assassination. I like how that sounds so much better than murder.

      @UncleDaddy Seppo lawyers are not educated they dont have to be.

    • @Nevyn of OZ 1973 Takes 7 years of education typically, then they must pass the state bar exam. What state does not require a lawyer to have a law degree? Please tell me.

    • @Scorch428 If there’s malice and forethought THEN it’s murder. If he has no legal excuse or authority to do so. . . .

  6. whatever happened to “nobody’s above the law”!?

      @Web Grep Bahahaha!

      Web Grep …garbage

    • JP Brown that was always a fairy tale for the common people so that they could keep on pretending that government can be trusted and accounted for its actions

    • The lawyers just made a reducto ad absurdum argument which the press took out of context to push their political agenda because they know the idiots who still listen to them always take them at their word and never check their facts. 🙂
      You’ll notice they never played the recording that was the basis of their claims that’s because they took it out of context.

    • @Web Grep Stop spreading fake news:
      In April 2018, while on an al-Assad regime-led tour of the area of the Douma chemical attack, a OAN correspondent said that there was no evidence that a chemical attack had occurred.[46] The correspondent said, “Not one of the people that I spoke to in that neighborhood said that they had seen anything or heard anything about a chemical attack on that day” and that residents “loved Bashar al-Assad.”[46]

      In May 2019, OANN published a report claiming that the “terrorist-linked” White Helmets had admitted to staging fake chemical weapons attacks, which were intended to put blame on the Assad regime.[21] The Daily Beast characterized the story as a “smear” that could be traced directly as Russian disinformation

      Found in less than 3 minutes, moron!

  7. If MURDER is okay, I suppose a little thing like treason is no big deal.

  8. his lawyer is basically saying he could be a dictator and get away with this.

    • Is there like a real lawyer who can tell us if this is true?

    • No, the lawyer just made a reducto ad absurdum argument which the press took out of context to push their political agenda because they know the idiots who still listen to them always take them at their word and never check their facts. 🙂

    • What exactly is that “policy’ supposed to be telling, if it exists, and whose policy is it? THAT is the question. Trump and his mob have always gotten away with crimes and fraud all their pathetic lives, and that’s what they will do till he gets 6 feet under because American systems (justice, political, social) have been incapable of getting this weed out of the society

    • @Crystal Giddens Sorry citizens he is shooting in the meantime. We just have to finish writing up the articles, voting on them, performing a trial, and voting on that. That’s if Congress is in session. Otherwise we’ll have to declare an emergency session and fly everyone in. Don’t worry, we’ll stop his wanton murder spree eventually. You have bought into Trump so hard that that is your position. Pathetic.

    I think it is more likely that if anyone shot Trump on 5th Ave. they wouldn’t be charged… they would be hailed a Hero! 😂😂😂

    He’s the biggest coward ever he’d get others to do it and have them believe because he’s President they have permission and would not be arrested.

  11. It’s 2019 and Americans haven’t yet figured out what the limitations of Presidential power and liabilities are? 😂

    They’re debating whether a President can commit crimes while in office and nobody can do anything about it. Seriously? 😂

    Americans… wtf?

      @american themost I thought the topic was about Trump being indicted for his crimes

    • Burger WithEverything | October 24, 2019 at 11:29 AM | Reply

      @Cronus that isn’t Socialism. That is safety net. Socialism is where the _means of production_ are controlled by the collective. We are a capitalist based country with a mixed economy and a programs to help those who need them. Bernie and Rand Paul have done their best to confuse everyone. I still like both of them but they need to quit. Even the leader of Norway had to explain that they were not a Socialist economy but a market economy. This is a different topic than the claim that a president is above the law. That just isn’t what the Constitution makes a claim on.

    • We have gone so far from normal it’s insane !

    • american themost | October 24, 2019 at 12:01 PM | Reply

      Burger WithEverything you mean accusations.

  12. Trump and his legal team seem to be living in an alternative universe

    • I would like to agree with you but, in reality; his version of reality is what we are contending with. There has been a coup and we can’t seem to understand that reality. If we allow Trump to continue, we will find ourselves living in something akin to Hitler’s Germany (we all know how that worked out). What we need to be asking ourselves is; are we going to let this continue?

      They have been the entire time.

    • @Dan Campbell The lawyers just made a reducto ad absurdum argument which the press took out of context to push their political agenda because they know the idiots who still listen to them always take them at their word and never check their facts. 🙂
      You’ll notice they never played the recording that was the basis of their claims that’s because they took it out of context. This happens all the time, start fact checking. Have you read anything about Nazi Germany? Ever read Mein Kamph? Or are you just parroting what someone else said?

    • Bizzarro is where Bizzarro Superman lives too.

  13. He is killing people in Syria thru Turkey

    “A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”
    _The American Declaration of Independance_

    • Prince of the golden toilet.

    • NICE

    • mickey thompson bravo. they knew human nature . it’s why after the war to rid themselves of a tyrant they put safeguards in the other document, but we have to remain vigilant, or we will fall back under the little hands of a tyrant.

    • Please name some of his acts that back up your assertion. In this case his lawyer just made a reducto ad absurdum argument which the press took out of context to push their political agenda because they know their viewers take them at their word and never check their facts. 🙂

  15. They are desperately trying to make Trump into King or Dictator.

  16. An “internal memo” can’t override the constitution. It’s that simple.

  17. This trumpian notion of “I’m above the law” is just another argument for him being unfit for office.

  18. Let trump pull it off.
    “Rudy, stand here and let me shoot you”
    LETS SEE

  19. That fat man baby acts more like a dictator everyday

  20. Just discussing this shows how f””g insane this presidency has gotten.
