  1. My favorite part of the Mueller report is Trump’s reaction when he found out about the creation of the Special Counsel investigation.

    On May 17, 2017 then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions told Trump about the special counsel investigation.
    “When Sessions told the President that a Special Counsel had been appointed, the President slumped back in his chair and said, ‘Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I am f—–d’” according to the report, which based its retelling of this conversation on notes taken by Jody Hunt, Sessions’ chief of staff at the time.

    Trump then became angry, according to the report, and “lambasted” Sessions for his decision to recuse himself from the investigation.

    “How could you let this happen Jeff?” the president said, according to the report..

    Trump told Sessions that the Attorney General was his “most important appointment” and said Sessions had let him down. Sessions told investigators Trump told him “you were supposed to protect me.”

    This does not sound like the reactions of an innocent man who has nothing to hide, and nothing to worry about. This sounds like the reactions of a criminal and a traitor, who has just been caught, and now has a lot to worry about. 😲

      @BREAKING NEWS you are misinformed.

      @BREAKING NEWS if you’d read the Mueller report instead of slumping in front of Fox every night, you wouldn’t say ‘it sounds like’ because you know it was the actual findings. Bill Barr lied, you know that don’t you?

      @BREAKING NEWS individual 1 will be in court sometime in February. Investigations that will follow will expose Republicans for who they are this is why they’re starting to panic. Sad bigly sad

    • @BREAKING NEWS You’re full of SADness. Sycophantic Adoration Disorder. Mueller specifically stated the President was not exonerated. The fact he did not go further was because Trump is (literally tragically) president. So much sickness, so little time until the election …..

    • Andrew Newman | June 11, 2020 at 7:33 PM | Reply

      @BREAKING NEWS Even the Senate Intelligence Committee declared that Russia interfered in the 2016 elections on the side of Donald Trump and note it was a Senate (Republican) controlled committee that made that finding.

  2. Trump is setting g up the DOJ as a personal attack force to go after his “enemies”!

  3. This is what 3rd world despotism looks like.

      @Trump 2020 Trumps going to completely destroy Biden in the debates. What I really want is a 2 state solution these leftist are gone their insane. Drag queens twerking with kids in the library that was it for me.

  4. Trump is using his attack dog Barr to lead in a deep state.

    • @Ash Roskell Desperate???
      The only desperate people here is Obama, Biden, Hillary & friends who are trying to hide their crimes to stay out of prison.
      You MSNBC watchers are hilarious.

    • Clark Kent 👈 Trump Troll looking for, “emotional,” reactions. “Make America Divided Again,” stuff. Safe to disregard. 🥱😴

    • Susan Trash, if your brain gets any smaller you’ll be a toadstool.

    • @Ash Roskell Does it bother you when people come here & speak the truth?

    • @Ash Roskell I’m not a dem or a rep.
      I laugh at you people who watch MSNBC & think you know what the truth is.
      You think it’s ok to spread lies based on a reporters words, but hate it when someone speaks the truth when it goes against your fake news.

  5. The cancer is spreading.

  6. His name is Brian Rabbitt, he looks more like Brian “Hog.”

  7. I takes a lot of work to undermine a democracy.

    • Leah Asevedo
      All your nonsense does not remove the fact that there are elections for positions in the U.S. republic = the U.S. is a democracy with a constitutional republic as government.
      Basic knowledge and pretty obvious for intelligent people.

    Come January just look at what these guys swept under the rug

    • I can’t wait. I just hope the boarders are secured come January. I’d hate to see any of them get away! Although I’m sure most countries will grab them for us.

  10. How many staff have been fired or resigned since BUNKER BOY landed on the scene I wonder why he can’t keep staff 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • I guess there is only so much stupidity that staffers can take before they call the president a mental moron and bruise his fragile ego.

      We all need to flood the Fox “News” comment section and other Channels. Argue with the people. Take their Safe-Space.

  11. The lap dogs cleaning Trumps dirty shoes,and hiding the truth,

  12. Yet another corrupt appointment by the Trump administration to further their political agenda.

  13. This happens when you have an attorney-general who would be serving a life sentence for high treason in any country with a half-decent consitution and an independen judiciary.

    • norsktoolmaker88 | June 11, 2020 at 12:38 PM | Reply

      Barr would be lucky to serve a life sentence for treason. He was attorney general in 1992 and supervised events at Ruby Ridge. His order to FBI sniper Lon Horiuchi for “Shoot on sight” rules of engagement, resulted in Vicky Weaver being killed standing at her kitchen door while holding her infant in her arms. Doe’s Idaho have the death penalty ? There’s no statute of limitation on murder.

    Oh my God! This is so horrible and disgusting!!!

  18. Toady pulls rabit, a fine menagerie, except that the humans are ominous and the animals not

  19. The USA is being taken over by obese, fawning Trump sycophant appointees that can’t even manage their own health, let alone America’s.
