  1. Barr probably put lipstick on and kissed his resignation letter for Trump

    It’s going to be a long 27 days

    • You better know it

      These 27 days are going to last for the next 4 years.

      I just hope the pandemic doesn’t last that long.

      Thankfully Christmas and New Years serves as sort of days wasted away inbetween. That way he has less time with everything going on during the holidays around him.

    • Trump is doing as much damage to this country as he’s still in power. Abuse pardon power for his buddies, veto defense & Covid relief bill while people urgently need it. Will he do more damage in the upcoming 27 days? You know the answer. The man is dangerous!

    Eviction day is coming……time to pardon the swamp!!

  4. Those turkeys must have had dirt on trump.

  5. Lashing out like an effing child…

  6. Relic of monarchic past. No relevance today other than corruption.

  7. NY will get Trump and his family for tax fraud.
    In fact I would recommend EVERY Trump supporter worth over $500,000 should be audited.

  8. The only difference between Trump and a mob boss is that a mob boss could run a casino.

  9. I won’t miss him or anyone else from the Trump administration. 27 days left.

    Never have pardons been more worthless. The whole world now knows what these people are.

    • @Christian Heckmann Engelbrecht You forgot something- these, “people” have no soul or empathy for anyone or anything except themselves.

    • The company running the elections will sue Trump and Giuliani after 20 Jan.

      @kakashi101able Jerry Ford did that because he wanted to “save” the country from the turmoil of prosecuting a former president. Not only was Ford not elected to the presidency, he was not elected to vice presidency. I keep thinking, would we be were we are now if he had not done so?

    • How many MURDERERS and TERRORISTS did Obama pardon?

    • @Prickly Pear No. They don’t.

  11. Good riddance to the seditious willy barr! “God is watching you” all!

  12. Barr you knew this would happen you enabled Trump shame on you.

  13. It will be funny when they cancel all the pardons because they are bribes with power not money.
    But that is all thats needed to question them and revoke them

  14. Pardon is bribery and Trump is using it to his advantage

  15. Absolute power may corrupt absolutely, but in Trump’s case, he was already absolutely corrupt before he had any power.

  16. New Law: Pardons go away if the President has charges after or during their time in office

  17. Loretta Keesee | December 24, 2020 at 3:05 AM | Reply

    A president who has been impeached should never be allowed to pardon anyone..

  18. When pardoning criminal cronies is more important than saving American lives . . . .

  19. He specializes in hurting people, taking away what is not his to take away – federal funding, Christmas, peace.

  20. Nothing highlights their corruption more than a pardon does.
