Weissmann: Trump Abandoned ‘All Of The Process That Exists In The DOJ About How Pardons Are Given’


    1. @Wally Censorship yes, there was fraud…committed by republicans voting for trump. their day in court will come.

    1. The very people who voted for and rabidly support Trump are the very people who will never benefit from any of Trump’s criminality.

  1. Trump will try to burn down the house with everyone inside… now do you think comparisons with Hitler exaggerated???

    1. @Wally Censorship
      Oh you don’t want that. If so unhappy , leave , go to a country that will welcome your twisted, ignorant believes.

    1. I’m sure to give him protection against the Deep State that will have rigged investigations led by the fake news networks and the failing New York Times. He is easy to predict.

  2. And STILL his fan club hasn’t figured out that he is not rich. All this grifting and begging for donations are not the tactics of a billionaire.

    1. @Wally Censorship the difference is that Trump and family were prosecuted for a crime that actually happened, not one you Trump worshippers made up.

    2. @Wally Censorship
      Ohhhhhhhh what a sore loser. Where you getting your info from, Vladimir? Or is it Gustav?

  3. Trump is a Grifter like Televangelists who gives False Hopes and take their Money . Highest bidders will get early Pardons.

    1. After he exposing the truth Democratics dirty dealings, regardless. Pray President Trump Pardon Julian Assange. Cheers from Australia

    2. OH PLEASE Donald Trump try to pardon yourself!
      Whatever competent lawyers he still has would be advising him not to… but offer him legitimate advice he’ll do the exact opposite.

  4. Any pardons issued by the president since this bribery investigation started should be declared to be “corrupt pardons” and therefore be Void.

    1. I think will probably happen , America has to get it,s pride back , the world has been laughing at you for the last 4 years

    2. @William Moloney- glad I’m not a citizen of that particular madness… I’m one of the “Rest of the world”.

    1. Please, when will people learn you can’t reason with Trumpists. They’ll just claim he’s protecting himself from some deep state conspiracy to imprison him. Rational thought has no place in the US right wing.

    2. @Wally Censorship
      No evidence? It will surface when he’s out of office. He knows that, that’s why he’s scrambling to turn election around. Not happening.
      Mueller’s report stated a president could not be indicted WHILE in office That will end Jan 20. 2020 at noon.

    3. @Tom Drake
      Trump ordered Flynn to lie. As he does to all that work for him. Some didn’t & resigned or got fired. The ones that stayed, well are or were in jail , until trump pardoned them.

  5. Americans should be ashamed, to had voted for this man. I feel ashamed just to know he is our President.

    1. Me to, I felt dirty ever since he was elected and I live in Texas from long generations of Texans and to know those children are in camps on our border makes me constantly feel so ashamed that I live here and Texas looks like a very dark place to me now and it’s a stain that will never leave us.

    2. I couldn’t believe it. I still cannot. I can not believe that Trump of the 1980s and 1990s managed to convince that many people that he could improve their lives

    3. I thought getting him out of our house would end his reign..but to my horror he’s talking about running for president in 2024 so he can keep dismantling our wonderful Democracy into a One party Republican rule with no voting and all white people evangelical…So scared for our country..

  6. As a reality show man he is doing a good job, it’s quite entertaining. Sadly his followers don’t get the show part of it.

    1. The guy selling Trump flags in my area is having a 2 for 1 sale. Still not selling any. Can’t even give ’em away.

    2. That’s what I though. they may be out of the WH, but out of business I don’t think so. Trump and family has milked the system to the max, and that include the GOP in every possible way. Forget the crimes they have already pocketed million of dollars apparently “legally”, some under the table. Confronting Trump is not the sole responsibility of the SDNY it’s gotta be a concerted effort. Biden wants to move forward. I say accountability must prevail.
