    At the risk of sounding redundant – Vote – Vote early, complete the census and help everyone else to do the same.

  2. There were no brave honorable men when the USA needed them most.

  3. I think it’s “there” we just don’t know where. Let’s vote him out and then maybe we’ll find out.

    • Oh, we’re going to find out. The Republican Criminal senate are all rehearsing their excuses that will be performed after the election. I’m not leaving this planet until these weak-minded, complicit fools are in prison. Which is far too good for them.

    • @Rene’ Placek Will Celebrate And The Whole House Too Never Calls Him My President, And Never Watch Him Too. Saying Joe Biden Don’t Knows He Alive, Trump Not Alive. Always Slipped, Cause Of The Meds And Others Too, Noel Knows Him Well

    • @DJ ARCHITECT Always Did Since Trump Got In I Heard Trump Knows Putin Since The 1987 With The Pageants. I used To Watch Its But When I Found Out Trump owns Its I Shuts Its Offs

    So I guess tRump was right, when he said that he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and nothing would happen to him…

  6. It took years to get that Nixon smell off republicans.
    I don’t think the tRump STENCH will ever come out.

    • And it certainly won’t if we never let anyone forget what was done under tRump and his criminal coconspirators in the Republican Senate.

    Muller was being coached by his friend Bill Barr. Rosenstien had leverage on Trump that’s why “he” was never fired. Your absolutely right Rachel this is very unsettling and again not surprising, knowing the Commander in Cheat that we are dealing with.

  9. Ths fact we EVEN have to concern ourselves that Trump is a Russian agent is sickening

    • Kristene Hodges | September 2, 2020 at 6:51 PM | Reply

      Trump doesn’t have to be a spy, he has been volunteering himself to Putin even when Putin didn’t know who Trump was. See Four Corners investigative journalism on “…Useful idiots…”, it explains Trump trying to get Putin’s attention since before the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow . ..

    • @Kristene Hodges THANKS!!!

    • YC龍族玩家一龍飛 | September 3, 2020 at 6:03 PM | Reply

      If he is Russian agent, he must have not against China. China Communist parties are on the side of Russian as always

    • @Kristene Hodges I agree with you, I have always thought that Putin/KGB had actually been grooming him since the 80’s. He’s the perfect person for the job, being a narcissist and no clue what it means to eventually be President. Putin probably even gave him the idea, it’s so disgusting. It’s also on Mitch McConnell and @GOP for letting him go unchecked because they care more about their judges than the country. Plus I think that in one of the Senate Intelligence Committee reports, it says that the Russians took advantage of their inexperience during the transition.  

      I even read (it was a long time ago, maybe not true) that the NATO members were concerned that his arguments regarding Russia coming back to the G7, sounded like he was speaking for Russia, not us. But it has always been obvious, because usually the simplest answer is usually the right one.

    Trump will face the sealed indictments along with his criminal family.

  11. Rod Rosenstein should be tried for treason. Literally.

  12. Right now Vladimir Putin is thinking, “I never dreamed it would be this easy!”

    • Right now you’re thinking “Gosh it’s gonna be a cold winter and I’m wetting the bed too frequently to use my electric blanket” bahahahahahahahahahhaahahahahahahaahahhaa #theorangedevilthrivesonyourtears

      You Americans with your Conspiracy Theories. Over here in Europe we don’t know if we have to laugh or cry.
      I’m German and my Chancellor Angela Merkel just recently pointed out how Trump being so hawkish/aggressive on Russia compared to Obama makes it more difficult for her to come to Diplomatic Solutions regarding Tensions between Russia and the Baltic States as well as Ukraine.
      Trump being a Puppet of Putin makes zero Sense, especially since most Of our Leaders in Europe are being much friendlier, diplamtic and supportive with Putin than any US President in the past 30 Years.
      Does that mean Angela Merkel is and has been a Putin Puppet since her Election in 2005?
      This all reminds us Europeans of the Time Obama was President and US Repubicans, Fox News etc spread all these Conspiracy Theories about Obama being controlled by Qatar etc.
      Right now sadly many of you sound just as unhinged.
      At least criticize Trump regarding what he actually does. Trumps and the US Govs Decisions on Russia the past 3 Years have been too aggressive, making it hard for the Leader of Europe like Angela Merkel to come to diplomatic solutions with Russia.
      Gotta stick to Reality when you want to fight Trump, attack him for what he’s actually doing that damages us, your Allies in Europe.
      Obama was luckily not as aggressive against Russia compared to the Trump Admin, Obama left Merkel more Room to keep the Temperature down and negotiate.
      I wish US News like MSNBC would report more on the actual Problems Trump Behaviour causes over here in Europe and not this Nonsense about how he is controlled by Putin that even Angela Merkel shook her Head when she heard about how widespread the Belief that Trump is “too nice an like a puppet to Russia”.
      I guess Maddow won’t show or talk about that, because she always praises Angela Merkel and the Chancellor shaking her head about Conspiracy Theories in the US wouldn’t fit the Narrative.
      I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump wins again, especially if all these nonsensical Talking Points that don’t even make Sense about Trump being controlled by Russia stay the Prime Focus.
      I hope Biden wins, but the DNC and Media should really start to focus on real criticism about Trump.
      Prost (Cheers) from the Bavarian Alps

    • For the record, conservatives are as angry at what these loons have done to you folks as we are at anything else.

    • @WC3fanatic997 Besides the fact that there was no billion-dollar deal, is it really your position: well sure, but look what that guy did?
      Is “look what the other guy did” what passes for a defense these days?

    • WC3fanatic997 HYPE

  15. trump, on camera admitted he’d take “assistance” from a foreign government. WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED. 25th amendment him and his 2ic

    • Jimmy Screech WHY HAVEN’T they used the 25th Amendment JUST VOTE BLUE

    • @Janet Chaplin I have a feeling voting may not be enough.. He’s got the titles scam artist/conman for a reason. He also has powerful allies in prominent positions…. hope for the sake of Democracy im wrong.

    • Jimmy Screech I think Putin put it in his head, along with Miller, and the rest of his dictator friends!
      WOW 🍀🍀🍀🍀

  16. I’ll bet cha something in Trump’s taxes points to Russian ties….big time

      Master Temple bullcrap. That story has been investigated and debunked many times over. Trump has been on the Russian payroll for decades. That’s why he had a Russian mobster in an adjoining office in trump tower.

    • He defiantly has something to hide

    • stephen glover | September 3, 2020 at 7:38 PM | Reply

      @Master Temple ha ha ha. That’s a joke. Do you know who was putting 10’s of millions into the clinton foundation. The Ukraine. And it suddenly stopped after she LOST. She is more corrupt than anyone

  17. YES — where IS the “other half” of his “annual physical”? Has never happened?

  18. I used to think Rod Rosenstein was a badass American hero. I was so wrong. He is apparently a traitor.

  19. Rachel breaks down everything in a factual way so that no one can claim sincere ignorance or conscientious stupidity 😕

    Worth repeating: Rod Rosenstein should be tried for treason. Literally.

    • Trumpty Dumpty your fall is coming! | September 3, 2020 at 1:23 PM | Reply

      @Polly Ticks I am aware of the case you have been referring to: “Rosenbergs passed the Soviets our nuclear secrets. Their charge was espionage.” I know it has been rare to charge Treason. I think they were charged with espionage, bc they claimed they were trying to help the US & the World, by leveling the playing field.
      Traitor TRump has and is actively attempting to overthrow the government by destroying every part of it. His henchman Stephen Miller said in the beginning that is exactly what they intended to do. And TRump has conspired with Russia to steal the 2016 Election and Ukraine & Russia for the 2020 Election – that is a direct attack on the USA.

    • @Trumpty Dumpty your fall is coming! *I think you are absolutely correct with your allegations on Trump and there is no doubt a lot more we haven’t uncovered yet, but again this is about definition of law and until Trump tries to physically overthrow our government, it won’t be treason. I don’t know that else I can do than show you the law in print. You can disagree with the law and how he should be charged but that’s your definition not the constitutional definition and it’s not how treason reads in constitutional law. If it was left up to me I’d love for him to be charged with treason, but it just ain’t gonna happen. It’s a different crime than sedition and espionage.*

    • Trumpty Dumpty your fall is coming! | September 3, 2020 at 2:44 PM | Reply

      @Polly Ticks Well today, I looked again at the law and the references back to English law where the language is a bit on the slow reading side, and I just found an interesting “opinion article” by WAPO, where they too mention the Rosenbergs “were tried and executed for espionage, not treason.” I actually don’t remember them being ‘executed’ for Espionage, but I did know they got them on espionage. That’s probably them getting around the Treason constraints. They go on to say, “Indeed, Trump could give the U.S. nuclear codes to Vladimir Putin or bug the Oval Office with a direct line to the Kremlin and it would not be treason, as a legal matter. Of course, such conduct would violate various laws and would constitute grounds for impeachment as a “high crime and misdemeanor.”

      @Polly Ticks I’m curious what you think Rosenberg could be charge with for stopping the lawful pursuit of following the evidence they had and finding out if Trump was compromised by Putin. He stopped it all.

    • @Trumpty Dumpty your fall is coming! That may fall under the crime of obstruction of justice. Trump has been proven to obstruct every investigation that may prove any number of his crimes. Mueller didn’t investigate him for obstruction but left 10 articles to investigate his obstruction for congress.

      The GOP is also guilty, IMHO, of obstruction by blocking witness testimonies that would have shed more light on Trump’s campaign’s connections to the Russians. The biggest problem with Mueller’s report besides the 1,000s of redactions that Barr put on them is that Mueller went by DOJ policy and not trying a president for a crime while in office. He ignored that Nixon and Clinton were subpoena’d by the grand jury. He basically left it up to the house to determine if his report warranted a charge of crimes against Chump. They successfully impeached him in record time, but all their work went out the window when the GOP controlled senate refused to allow any of Trump’s aides and ex-cabinet members to testify to what they knew.

      Basically it was a kangaroo court. When he gets removed, if he is removed, the southern district of NY will have a list as long as a roll of toilet paper of charges on him and his family members. The Trump foundation has already been losing and were fined 2 million for misappropriating donations to the foundation. I can only speculate that a long line of 503 violations will service once he’s no longer protected by being the president.
