  1. Can we finally stop any pretense that Trump ever cared about the Law or the Constitution?

    • @jeff mcgowan
      I’m not sure if you did proper research.
      There was hella collusion with Russia found.
      How many of trumps peeps went to prison? 5? Plus a bunch of russians found guilty but they fled back to russia, except that russian/NRA chick and rudy and trumps two russian pals. And another gaggle of russians indicted.
      Muller stated that he could not accuse a sitting president of criminal conspiracy with a foreign power due to policy, but did have the power to exonerate him.
      But he didn’t, instead stating that he could not exonerate the president of wrong doing.
      Also, presented overwhelming evidence of 10 incidents of obstruction of justice regarding russian interactions.
      And clearly proven russian interference, invited, encouraged and allowed by trump, in the election on behalf of trump and russian responsibility of hacking the DNC and RNC servers and leaking negative data about Hillary.
      Corrupt AG barr deliberately misstated the reports findings to intentionally mislead the public and then redacted all incriminating findings about trump as national security sensitive and refused to release the report to the public.
      Eventually the entire report was released but redacted to uselessness.
      It has since been unredacted for the federal court and most of the incriminating information about trump was found to not be national security sensitive and only redacted because it was incriminating. But still not released for the public until trump leaves office.
      He was also impeached but the republican senate refused to perform their Constitutional duties, betrayed their oaths of office by not allowing witnesses or evidence to be presented in the hearing and corruptly exonerated trump knowing he was guilty.
      Republican corruption is the only reason he hasn’t been found guilty.
      Not because he’s innocent.
      Pushing already debunked conspiracy “theories” about Obama spying on trump, uranium 1, and the bidens nonexistent Ukrainian and chinese corruption.
      You’re either a corrupt POS person without honor, integrity or self respect, knowingly complicit to treason.
      Or you’re a witless gullible SpEd being okeydoked by OAN and easily duped by the obviously corrupt and fuckwitted buffoon in chief.

    • @Chuck Nelson mueller said no collusion.. now who do you think i trust..hmmm.. tehehe

    • @jeff mcgowan
      Muller didn’t even mention collusion.
      That’s because collusion isn’t a thing.
      Barr said there was no collusion.
      Because collusion was never a subject of investigation.
      Muller found tons of contacts with Russians in regard to criminal conspiracy. Criminal conspiracy is a thing, but Muller said he couldn’t accuse a sitting president due to policy, he could exonerate by policy, but said he couldn’t exonerate the president of wrongdoing in regard to criminal conspiracy.

    • @jeff mcgowan
      That is a type of logical fallacy known as a strawman.
      Again, you know it’s BS and your being dishonest.
      Or you’re just cluelessly parroting nonsense.

    • @Chuck Nelson mueller did say ..no collusion..we all know that.. we seen him live in the oversight com..

      But we don’t we see you for who and what you are COWARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • The Media has betrayed us!

      It is all so one sided,
      It is Propaganda!
      And it is an Election Campaign
      Not News

      I hate politics, and hate watching it
      But the mainstream media can’t do a story without dragging politics into it any more

      We used to get nasty advertising during elections,
      Which began several decades ago,
      Instead of each candidate advertising what he would do for America,
      It became just swear campaigns

      The media and Democrats have turn it into a 4 year Smear Campaign

      I don’t like Trump but this isn’t news. It is free campaign advertising
      (Though I doubt it is totally free, the media lives for ratings and making money, and reporters make outrageous amounts yearly)

      This has been the Nastiest
      Most Divisive
      Deadliest
      Election campaign

      Instead of just Nasty ads
      We the People of America have had our lives dragged into this campaign.

      Neither Republicans nor Democrats can hold their heads high after this horrible year.
      They have both failed and Used America for their own greedy power hungry selfish reasons.

      Democrats didn’t worry about the spread of COVID-19 when they were encouraging the RIOTS.
      Now Democrats are shutting down our businesses again!
      Shut down the businesses
      Vandalize the businesses
      Burn down the businesses
      Shut them down again
      Awful for all Americans as jobs are permanently destroyed!

      Both parties refuse to work together for the wellbeing of Americans!!

  3. At this point anyone who supports this criminal is aiding and abetting.

  4. Of course historians will remember Trump as a traitor to this country

  5. “Russiagate” never ended, and the investigations were never completed, thanks to stonewalling and lying and destruction of evidence.
    These crooks all belong in prison.

      If you had paid attention to the hearings, read the report, and were aware that Barr is trumps “personal fixer” you’d know, there is ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT that trump did EVERY CRIME he’s been accused of. TREASON, first and foremost. NO QUESTION.

      ….but naahh there is no Russian collusion.

      @Cleon P. Aren’t you Cleon Peterson, the Marxist who paints Trump as a monster? “Cleon Peterson is an LA based artist whose chaotic and violent paintings show clashing figures symbolizing a struggle between power and submission in the fluctuating architecture of contemporary society.” Do you know what freedom and democracy is? It is freedom to throw poo toward a president, and nothing bad happens to you. When Marxists rule, you may get into a death camp being even 100% loyal to the power. Needles to say, they erase you, if you oppose to something. The Left manipulate with minds and paint everything upside down. You are brainwashed and hostile. You are enemy for freedom and the country, you are a citizen of. HMR music are made by demons and make people evil. Look for Jesus, you are in trouble

    The Russians didn’t just hack the DNC, they hacked the RNC also. Is this what the Republicans are so afraid of? I think it just may be.

    • Scott Campbell | August 1, 2020 at 11:26 AM | Reply

      Karrie Hansberry Whatever Russians found on RNC servers must be horrific, since the GOP has sold the soul of the country to save themselves. Trump’s financial debts to Russians are keeping him in line and Trump and Russia are both blackmailing the rest of the sycophants to keep them in line. The saddest thing for all of us is the dirt will all be revealed anyway, once the GOP has been kicked out, and all this gaslighting will have been for nothing.

    • Margaret Wordnerd | August 1, 2020 at 11:50 AM | Reply

      I was beginning to think I was the only person who remembered that and could see what it meant. They found things at the DNC that could be awkward and embarrassing…what they found at the RNC was enough for Putin to say, “We own you, and you will do as we say.”

  9. Insightful article except he missed the obvious. Trump Republicans didn’t turn a blind eye to his deeds, they think and act the same way Trump does. That who they truly are, traitors, plain and simple.

      @NARSREEN JOHNSON If Trump has his way he would deport you! So that you would never get a chance to vote for anyone! Good luck getting citizenship if he is reelected!

    • @FREEDOM FORCE that’s really getting old… a vote for a democratic might mean they actually care about all of us. Even your sorry self.

    • That’s where the bulk of his votes came from. We’ll see if they really are dumb this November. Only those incapable if learning from their.mistskes will vote for him again.

    • @Higgs Boson That’s right. Trump did tell you not to believe what you were seeing or hearing . A perfect example of the problem.

    • @Great Course Hub I’m so tired if trying to straighten out your misconceptions about history. SOUTHERN DRMOCRATS=-DIXIEcrats.
      Always voted with the Republicans. The 2 most influential modern Dixiecrats actually switched parties and became Republicans… Strom Thurmond snd Jessie Helms. The 3rd most influential Dixiecrat was George Wallace who ran for prez in 68 as an Independent.
      Of course you don’t know any of this.
      Just like you don’t know that Obams did not literally start ISIS.
      You should be embarrassed by your ignorance instead of flaunting it.

      @J. Lo suposed you have a brain, can you use it and take your conclusion by yourself? but by the tonne of your post i dont believe you can do it based in FACTS, you want base this in party colours, so whatever, you are just another sheep untill you wake up to consider all the picture.

    • @J. Lo You can’t vote for socialists in your country. But voting GOP means voting fascist. If you prefer that then vote for them, but don’t complain afterwards.

    • @J. Lo Last time I checked, the community doesn’t own everything as a collective here in the United States. You might want to look up the meaning of socialism.

  13. Remember what he said about John McCain, ” I like people who weren’t captured”
    People, this was right before he was elected.
    THAT, is the most UN American statement I have ever heard uttered by a presidential candidate, nor ANY American that I have ever heard.
    Does not matter how you felt about McCain, it was a direct , and total disrespect to all prisoners if war.
    A pathetic, as Un American , lowly , disgraceful sentiment towards people who have put the United States Uniform on .
    ” I like people who weren’t captured”
    – Donald J Trump

  14. I dare you not to call this treason. History will remember his supporters like we remember those that eneabled the Nazis

  15. Or, how ’bout when Jared Kushner went to the Russian Embassy in Washington to see if he could set up some kind of back channel so trump and Putin could communicate without those pesky American intelligence agencies listening in? That was a good one. Crickets from the republicans.

    trump is a figure of contempt and ridicule. He’s wrecked the economy, killed Americans with his bungled handling of the pandemic, put incompetent, greedy pals in powerful government positions, alienated US allies around the world, locked up children at the border and other crimes too numerous to mention. Trump’s attitude is “If you’re rich, white, and powerful, you can get away with anything.“ The reality TV star needs to go.

  17. Had to hear Jim Jordan’s trash response today to Faucis hearing. Because trump allows and encourages rants of ridiculousness

  18. Blaming the past does not absolve the crimes of the present.

  19. If Donald Trump was the Captain of the Titanic: “There isn’t any iceberg.” / “There was an iceberg but it’s in a totally different ocean.”/ “The iceberg is in this ocean but it will melt very soon.” / “There is an iceberg but we didn’t hit the iceberg.”/ “We hit the iceberg, but the damage will be repaired very shortly.”/ “The iceberg is a Chinese iceberg.”“We are taking on water but every passenger who wants a lifeboat can get a lifeboat, and they are beautiful lifeboats.”/ “Look, passengers need to ask nicely for the lifeboats if they want them.” / “We don’t have any lifeboats, we’re not lifeboat distributors.”/ “Passengers should have planned for icebergs and brought their own lifeboats.” / “I really don’t think we need that many lifeboats.”/ “We have lifeboats and they’re supposed to be our lifeboats, not the passengers’ lifeboats.” / “The lifeboats were left onshore by the last captain of this ship.”/ “Nobody could have foreseen the iceberg. ” / “I don’t take responsibility at all.”…copied comment…thank you!

  20. Trump supporters don’t call it treason. Just the rest of America and the entire world.
