    Anyone coming into the new administration NOT expecting to be fighting a dumpster fire for years to come wasn’t paying attention.

    • @Matthew Keenan The right claimed our booming economy was because of trump, yet they point to Biden
      when it comes to the border situation. Just about every problem we see at the border is because of trump.
      So trump will take credit for things he had no hand in accomplishing. Even though Biden has only been in office for a few weeks trump is now blaming him for the situation at the border.
      Cue trump’s go to whine “IT’S NOT MY FAULT !!!!!!!”
      You see this is why we have transition teams, so the incoming administration will be on the same page as the outgoing when they take office. 44 times we have seen the peaceful exchange of power, Something trump was incapable of doing.
      Remember that it was trump who called the problems along the border an emergency. No other modern president ever felt that was necessary. Guess they all had the border situation under control.
      By the way you do know that trump never built his wall, even though he has claimed to. It’s nowhere near completion. You can count the number of miles trump has built new fencing on on your fingers.

    • @Red Dwarf 🙌😃

    • Many of trump’s co-horts COMPLETELY bought into the scheme that he couldnt,and wouldnt lose in 2020! Everybody loved him! Massively popular! 4 more years and it wouldnt have mattered what any fellow criminals did,it would be way past that point…………….so he loses,and wont admit it. The cult believes him.

      The “judges appointed to lower courts by #45 are no prizes either. Some are demonstrably unqualified.

    • @Matthew Keenan Sorry to bust your bubble and throw shade on your illusion but According to the Heritage Foundation, a far right leaning organization. illegal entry was 6 times greater under trump than under Obama.
      You really should research the subject before making such silly post.
      There’s a plethora of statistic all showing an up tick in illegal crossing during trumps years in office.

    Oh, the irony. Being investigated by the person who should be in your seat.

    • Wendy Johansen | March 20, 2021 at 9:14 PM | Reply

      Which is WHY I deliberately and for the first and ideally only time, I will need to use them, was with YOU!

    • @Bridget Murray omg what rock have you been living under and to the mueller point he said there was NO COLLUSION with Russia and besides I hate to break it to you people just because he said that you can’t indict a sitting president doesn’t mean you can’t indict the ones around them and hello nobody went to prison for colluding with Russia or OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE. He had a wide scope of things he was able to look at folks and him and Clinton’s lackey weissman used every trick in the book including wait for it looking at his taxes huhhhhhhhhhhh shocker.

    • @Enricoludo in those hearings with him they said how many times the fbi investigations happened before he even got nominated for the position

    • @Susan Ford After all they were both mail clerk’s of now retired Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy(*Who retired as soon as Trump took office!). Coincidence??
      *Kennedy’s son Justin also WAS employed by Deutsche Bank who gave Trump hundreds of millions even after he didnt repay on his bank loans. Someone from Deutsche bank even went so far to write a letter to the courts that fined Trump for Casino racketeering, $ laundering, and other laws about moving workers of color + away from their job, or gaming tables to cater to casino racist patrons.

    • @J. Cleveland Any and all financial investigations into Trump will hopefully unearth a multitude of sins. And expose individuals for skirting laws or circumventing them. It will hopefully all come out in the wash.

  3. Thank the Lord there’s justice coming!

  4. Kegernagh will have a beer with that. Cheers!

  5. A full and thorough investigation into Kavanaugh is long overdue.

    • @Eugrne Jacson Joe Biden admits on camera (after he left office) that he used the threat of losing a billion in US foreign aid to Ukraine to end an investigation into his son and you call conservatives ‘willfully ignorant’?

    • Mike Willett | March 20, 2021 at 4:38 PM | Reply

      @Tessmage Tessera. True, HE isn’t in public office. But his father was, close to the highest position in the world. Hunter was on the board of a Ukrainian energy company with no knowledge. Why? Paid millions, didn’t even speak Ukrainian. Why? Who’s “the big guy” in his emails?

    • Tessmage Tessera | March 20, 2021 at 6:01 PM | Reply

      @Mike Willett I don’t care about Hunter Biden. He isn’t my president. 45 years ago, I didn’t care about Billy Carter, either. Maybe you should grow up now.

    • @Eugrne Jacson lol….you mean the mostly peaceful protests at the capitol building. also there was no insurrection you moron and you would not know a fact if it were 8 inches and slapping you in the face

    • Kaptain Kmann | March 25, 2021 at 1:53 PM | Reply

      Dems. filed Docs. into the court record during his seating to the Supreme court that Prove he lied to Congress while being seated as an appeals court judge as well as again just before Mrs. Harris had them entered into the records. How they over looked that fact and seated him anyways is beyond me.

  6. David Shockley | March 17, 2021 at 2:45 AM | Reply

    Kavanaugh’s eligibility was….”I like beer!”

  7. I hope AG Garland does go after Kavanaugh, he never belonged on the Supreme Court. Once he’s done with that he can start investigating his predecessor Barr!

      I Like Beer!!

    • @Deliece Hurdle Trump pressured president Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine to ANNOUNCE an investigation into the Bidens That was all Trump wanted, was an announcement of an investigation to use as fodder during the election. After Trump was caught with his fingers in the cookie jar, Trump did not seem to concerned with corruption in Ukraine after that. Funny how politics work.

    • Mary Wallace | March 22, 2021 at 9:26 PM | Reply

      @Deliece Hurdle You pathetic Repug turds cannot stand that Dump lost to a smart, decent man like Biden. Get over it and be glad the corrupt orange fool is gone and will hopefully go to prison for his many crimes against the US.

    • Mary Wallace | March 22, 2021 at 9:29 PM | Reply

      @cdjhyoung I recall that most if the sexual assault charges during the 4 years of dump were made against Repugs. The dopes just can’t keep their pants zipped up.

    • Mary Wallace | March 22, 2021 at 9:29 PM | Reply

      @CynAnne1 Amen!

  8. People allowed a woman’s life to be ruined just to get this privileged character on the SCOTUS.

    • Bridget Murray | March 20, 2021 at 4:16 PM | Reply

      @Doc Austin – one of the reasons I believe her is that I do not think she would put herself through that ordeal for a made-up story. The cost is too high. She has received personal insults and threats made against her and her family. And people like you calling her a liar.

    • Jen Vicinity | March 21, 2021 at 5:47 PM | Reply

      @Cliff Medina Not to worry lil one … so many charges for T to go through.

    • Jen Vicinity | March 21, 2021 at 5:54 PM | Reply

      @Tim Kozlowski You know 500,000 died from T’s failure to be a leader. And do you know that 40% of those 500,000 souls dead are attributed as unnecessary deaths directly related to T? There’s statistical info online you can look up for sources. As well, why should Cuomo step down because of what are allegations until investigated, which is occurring. I’d say T really, really needs a govenor in NY to give him a pardon and Cuomo isn’t that guy.

    • Tim Kozlowski | March 21, 2021 at 6:52 PM | Reply

      @Jen Vicinity Do you know that none of those deaths have anything to do with President Trump. Try blaming China, after all that’s where it all started.

    • 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣That’s hilarious!

  9. We knew that there would be a loooooooooooooong tail of corruption and criminality be exposed in the wake of trump’s firing by America.

  10. Truth! Justice! Democracy! Accountability!

  11. the cleaning of the Swamp has begun….let’s pray all devious actions come to light

    It is NEVER too late to seek justice

  13. Richard Taylor | March 17, 2021 at 3:34 AM | Reply

    This would be such poetic justice. Hope Lyndsey is front row for it too

  14. You do have to remember that Rosenstein was in control of Donnie Dearest’s Justice Dept as well as Barr’s corruption.

  15. Bridget Murray | March 17, 2021 at 6:32 AM | Reply

    Maybe now we’ll get to the bottom of Lindsey Graham’s totally over the top behaviour at that hearing.

  16. Carol Pitcher | March 17, 2021 at 6:33 AM | Reply

    Wow that’s saying something being investigated by an AG who should be a Supreme Justice Thank You Sen Whitehouse

  17. Randal Walker | March 17, 2021 at 6:36 AM | Reply

    Yeah Graham yelling and screaming to shut this hearing down when EVERYONE knew… that lady was telling the TRUTH!!

    • Mike Willett | March 20, 2021 at 4:30 PM | Reply

      Her case was falling apart from the get go, and more each day.

    • Randal Walker | March 20, 2021 at 4:39 PM | Reply

      @Mike Willett I remember Kavanagh crying like a 👶 baby

    • Mike Willett | March 20, 2021 at 4:56 PM | Reply

      @Randal Walker. Well yeah so do I. I thought that was a bit ridiculous. If you want to question his emotional stability to hold a seat then that’s a different story. He came apart just facing those claims.

    • Randal Walker | March 20, 2021 at 4:59 PM | Reply

      @Mike Willett to hold a lifetime appointment on the highest court in the land..I agree ..there certainly should be higher standards than that!!

    • Mike Willett | March 20, 2021 at 5:16 PM | Reply

      @Randal Walker. Ford was a fraud, Kavenaugh is too emotional. When a justice decides on something, I hope it isn’t too emotional for them personally. Lol

    “I LIKE BEER” should not qualify one for SCOTUS seat. mitch was complicit, only one witness per side? why? because there were lots of people who knew brett is a creep.

      Give him real german beer and let him answer your questions after a few bottles…

      @Harry Hirsch Grolsch has a nice kick.
      i developed an allergy to alcohol. every time i drank, i broke out ….. in handcuffs!

      Fnen how about the !7 million of dark money he received for his drinking and gambling debts?

  19. Randal Walker | March 17, 2021 at 7:11 AM | Reply

    Graham yelling and screaming that questioning this man’s integrity or continuing an investigation wasn’t going to happen…b/c That Lady was telling the TRUTH!!

  20. Anyone paying attention during the Kavanaugh hearings knows that those FBI investigations were deliberately truncated. It’s very encouraging to see Sen Whitehouse is on top of this.

    • Mary Wallace | March 22, 2021 at 9:10 PM | Reply

      @aortenzio During dump’s miserable term he treated every government branch like a freaking mob boss, so I don’t see why you think that. Barr was his personal attorney and the Justice Dept was expected to go after dump’s enemies. Dump was the most corrupt president ever and it will take years for the Biden administration to clean up the mess he deliberately left behind. What a freaking POS Dump still is. I hope he is charged with sedition for Jan 6 and goes to prison for life. Wouldn’t care if his lousy family went with him, especially Jr., Ivanka and Eric. They are ALL culpable, and so is Melania. Take them all down!

    • Mary Wallace | March 22, 2021 at 9:13 PM | Reply

      @aortenzio You are the ignorant one. Boy you sure got fooled by the crooked rich guy. Bet you are still sending him donations. 🤣🤣🤣

    • Mary Wallace | March 22, 2021 at 9:19 PM | Reply

      @Lynn Geek The Hillary investigation was a waste of taxpayer money. She did nothing wrong but Repugs were sucking up to Putin trying to get false evidence on her. The US would be a million times better off if dump had never been born. Fact, not fiction, girl.

    • @Lynn Geek You’re either brainwashed, uninformed, or knowingly lying. Or some combination thereof.

    • @Mary Wallace jokes on you, cause I would never ever send ANY politician my hard earned money.
