U.S. Attorney In Georgia Abruptly Resigns After Trump Scorns Unnamed | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC 1

Aired on 1/5/2021.

  1. Never Trumper means that he can think with his own brain.

      @Nap Zap Reread

    • @Phillip Hutcheson don’t continue to deflect for us. It reflects rather poorly on your already soft and rather negative character.

      Come on, coward – answer the question now:

      Yes or No?

    • @Phillip Hutcheson why do you, the “true believer”, flee to Parler like a coward yet again?

      I thought you said that “there’s literally videos on here showing all the fraud”.

      Come on, I would hope that Phillip the lying hypocrite would have the balls to answer me with a YES or a NO. After all, he is capable of using multiple words in his replies.

      We’re all waiting for your response.

      Vae Victis

    • @Phillip Hutcheson what happened to your balls?

      How I love calling out the Trump Trash. Like the “chosen one” they support, they always eventually make fools of themselves – especially when you press them to present their evidence for election fraud.

      Cheers to Phillip- within the span of less than a day you’ve earned the nickname of Lying, Hypocritical Coward.

      You should start figuring out a response for when I call you out tomorrow after the electors eventually certify Biden’s election win.

      It truly means the opposite.

    This “House of Cards” TV series is getting crazier and crazier with all these plot twists.

  3. There is treachery afoot!

  4. This attorney is probably having threats made against him because of that Never Trumper bit. Dude basically singled him out.

    as Trump says “Its nothing personal, just business, You’re Fired”

  8. We all know BJ gotta call from 45 Saturday too n wasn’t going for whatever they was plotting on so he abruptly resigned Monday morning..

  9. The greatest democracy in the world! A joke to the world..

  10. Maybe the US Attorney resigned because he was ordered to open an investigation on the Georgia Secretary of State?

  11. What we need is recordings of the recent phone calls between Byung J. Pak and the DOJ. I’ll bet that would clear things right up.

  12. Mate. the bloke has a conscience. Good on him ,I’d jump off that sinking ship too ..

    Exactly how many threatening phone calls to officials are we unaware of. You can bet if there’s one there’s more.

      @Sam McCormack Listened to the entire tape. I’ll grant you that he spends the majority of it babbling incoherently and throwing around wildly changing numbers, but laced throughout all of that are indeed threats. Trump doesn’t get credit based upon time allotted to one aspect or the other. Those “bits and pieces” don’t even account for all the actual threats Trump makes within the call. They’re just the juiciest parts, and nothing about the remainder of the call changes that.

      @Singleballtheory BS.

    • JERRY RICHARDSON | January 5, 2021 at 8:47 PM | Reply

      Correct and voted up, thank you!

    • JERRY RICHARDSON | January 5, 2021 at 8:48 PM | Reply

      @Sam McCormack You’re a Trump tool, congratulations!

    • @JERRY RICHARDSON Did you actually vote for Joe Biden…lol

    Man, Lemming, pardon, Moscow, asylum. Wait 5 minutes and repeat.

  16. Could it be death threats to him and his family?
    In Georgia, where everyone has guns, you take those threats seriously!

  17. Smart guy, just saved his soul from eternal damnation.

  18. When DT singles out an individual for attention he is sending signals to his base to harass and assault said person.

    • No that’s what democrats do. Just look at any Maxine Waters vide of her screaming.

    • @vincewallett You are a true Trumpster … Always changing the subject, when someone nails a point on the head.

    • @Poe Lemic You are correct, but it makes Trumpers look stupid. The world heard Trump trying to falsify an election and the cult says, Maxine Waters once yelled. It’s like they have brain damage.

    • @vincewallett Stop your nonsense. You are fully aware DT is guilty of doing this countless of times.

  19. Curtis Grissom | January 5, 2021 at 1:55 PM | Reply

    He was made an offer but he did refuse.

  20. That a president can fire anybody he wants — that HAS to be changed. That’s how dictators become dictators, by putting in their own people. That can’t be allowed.

    • Well at least not those employed by one of the states. Perhaps only restricted to his adminsintration? I thought that would already be the case though … .
