  • Chris Ashcroft says:

    I keep saying it, and nobody believes yet. Not only will Trump continue to ignore subpoenas from Congress, he will ignore the results of the 2020 election when he loses. He will refuse to hand over power, and America will officially be a military dictatorship. The GOP will STILL back him of course. You had a good run America.

  • Russia needs more tanks Iraqi army would gladly return the tanks.russia furnished in gulf war they are all over side of the road to Baghdad an desert they use them for floor pots for date trees while.we are at it the air craft carrier you sold India if they could ever get it working they would give it back to you any way they want there money back !

  • Someone tell that Jerry Falwell, whom alot of people have sent money contributions to his ministry (socialism?🤔) ~ that, why don't they pay "reparations" to President Barack Obama, Because the republican gop at that time also, did everything they could to block good policies, and unfairly treated Mr. President Barack Obama, with their nonsensical, racist, greedy partisanship.

    So, Jerry fallwell……you fall-well with the other deceived ones, into the trumptantic.

  • James Conway says:

    Is our country really still doing this Sally just want to be president and maybe make a little bit of a difference he's only got four years people then you have a chance to vote all over again give it a rest already

  • Nicola Is my drug says:

    Just get the same hacker that was able to break into that iPhone that was used by the terrorist in SOUTHERN CA, easy peasy !
    Ring?

  • This is what alot of Americans have personally experienced with donald j. trump in business dealings….he dragged them through the courts! and and tries to block them for seeking justice, for the wrongs he initally did against them! DISGUSTING!

  • Grace and Mercy says:

    I love New York for many many reasons but one of my recent reasons is the fact that they are not afraid of Donald Trump and they've got big Bronx balls baby.

  • Grace and Mercy says:

    Robert Mueller just exudes honor character integrity courage truth balance stability wisdom knowledge insight and strength what a wonderful example of a true patriot and defender of the United States and its people thank you for serving Mister Mala how beautiful you are.

  • Soncelia Byrd says:

    “LOCK THEM UP” “LOCK THEM UP” TRUMP MAGATS BE CAREFUL😡I RESPOND BACK LIKE YOUR PRESIDENT BUT YOU’LL FEEL IT🤨

  • Lying republicans will do and say anything to protect their soulless 1% lord and master's, filth and greed. These 1% pigs have sold a line of B.S. these past 50 years to gain control of our nation. Using paid lobbyists they have bought their politicians; installed a 1% pig sympathetic court, that allowed them to create 'citizens united' a mockery of our Constitution. As another "religious" user, romney likes to say, 'corporation are people to!' Sad, false, the term corporation was created as a business term and as such had no personhood rights; well until their controlled SCJ said they did and that money was also Free Speech!

    These traitorous republicans goal is to dismantle our democracy and had it over to the soulless 1% pigs of man. There is no democrat or republican, there is only us, the peasants; 'We The People,' and them the 1%. Now that the filth of man are empowered by the soulless traitors that have taken control, don't think they going to give a "F" about you, your children or the future of the planet. Soulless corporate 1% PIGS need more money.

    So why are you still fighting, this is their time and it will be fulfilled. So we can finally be done with this perverse soulless system of man. The only question now is, who's mark are you going to take? You have chosen your destructor, drumpf, now watch his biggest distraction is still to come.

  • Ronald Harback says:

    OK then send the Marines over to Treasury and take them. Why does a crook like Dictator trmp get away with Obstructing Justice. Our Government has been taken over by Mafia family. We need to take America back! trump is a spider who has spread his web over the Government. America is no longer the land of the FREE!

  • LMAO Who cares?
    America will be a third world country in 20 years, because white cowards don't want to be called "racist"
    R E L A X

  • Starr RavenHawk says:

    YOU Individual 1 has stolen 2 plus years of our peace of mind and self-respect, can WE get that back???!!!

  • Starr RavenHawk says:

    If Congress had stopped with NIXON we would not know how much crimes he had also committed against these United States.

  • Bonnie Robinson says:

    If Trump has tweeted that Mueller should not testify was that an order or a question? Mueller might lose his job. Barr might try to stop him. It takes courage to stand up against a authoritarian president.

  • so this is actually happening huh, no one can stop it, or rather not enough people want to stop it? faith is Amazing indeed.

  • Greetings from Germany, Hitler did the same in a certain way, just silenced the opposition by not complying to any of the rules… or bending them till they break… and after that the whole world

  • No Limits Amputee says:

    Please arrest Steve Manuchin. He is purposely breaking a law that was designed to help protect us from corruption. In a vacuum they would not even ask for his returns. His actions, lies, public info about his corruption and past fraudulent charges in New York, and sworn testimony from his own lawyer, and not divesting from businesses so he doesn't put making money over what's right for the country. Even if getting his tax returns was purely political, so what? Everything congress does it political. They are politicians. Everything Trump does is political. Just rip the band aid off, start impeachment hearings and get people in there RIGHT NOW.

    I hate the media who continues to support Trump and the Republicans that are destroying our country. W#hy do they keep giving all the time to people like Barr who is now a known liar so we can't believe a single word they say? These traitors shouldn't be allowed on TV until they start telling the truth. As long as the media keep helping them like they helped Trump become president by giving him so much free air time, we have no chance of avoiding these fascists from taking over completely.

  • Marilyn Simmons says:

    Aah, Munchkin, one of the men responsible for so many of you losing your home! Here he is, in Trump's cabinet.

  • Lamour Strong says:

    Thank God for the media who prevail in talking about this strange scenario.

    When people innocently tar everyone with the Brush of "everyone is like me" – they naively think that corrupt behaviour doesn't exist, to change that narrative, is next neigh impossible, because it means acknowledging that one has been taken for a fool, something no-one ever wants to say.
    Better to continue in their naive meanderings, with their strongly held beliefs, buying further into this destructive narrative.
    Does it happen, how long does it last? Well there are examples world wide where it's happened and endured.
    Where corrupt institutions wield the sword so to speak and the populace simply follow like sheep.
    Beware the wolf, in your midst, disguised as one of you. Appealing to you as a victim, needing your deepest support, this beguiling situation, is like the story of spider encouraging the fly into her parlour… well there are outcomes, and one wonders, what will that be in this situation.
    Don't hold strongly held beliefs of someone's innocence, because that's what you've always done, look openly with an open mind, see for yourself, not because your party alignment dictates that you should do this or that.
    Question everything, ask for all the evidence to make your own assertions as to what you believe.
    Nothing is, or should be, a closed case or a done deal.
    Do not allow someone to rail road you into a decision, just because someone says so.
    Time to question everything, everyone. American people you deserve answers, the truth.
    Unless you ask the questions, of the people, you may lose more that you think. Civil liberties are to be closely guarded, for once lost, it may take generations to win them back.
    Asking questions now, will save you later.
    Do not take No for an answer.

    Just goes to show ya kids if you have the money even america will bend over sexually to gladly get F****d for you're money and protect you from its own laws that is so disturbingly enforces on its own ppl.

  • Micah and me says:

    No one is really dumb enough to believe don, right?! He and his personal puppet attorney, Billy boy are THE hoax! Even a 4 year old can see these people are full of it. Thanks for the laughs don. !🤣

  • Investing for Tomorrow says:

    Crooked Donald's tax returns are unquestionably inaccurate, it's William Weasel Barr's tax returns that should be brought to light. If Barr is inclined to lie under oath then obviously any tax filings by the Attorney General should be brought into question.

  • Hard Boiled Mahoney says:

    How does a guy who claims he has done more for this country than any president ever, now say "2 years were stolen."? He must be setting up an insanity plea, just in case…

  • So Trump is owed two extra years to make up for the Mueller investigation (which indicted and jailed several of his associates).

    What, did it cause him to miss out on even more tweeting, playing golf, and telling lies?

  • ulli goschmidt says:

    Blah,Blah and nothing happens.Congress has no power or dont want to use it.
    "We the people…"?
    You the people are nothing but f….cked!

  • Stargazer Gorzo says:

    Yeah, the fantastic job BullDog Barr has done is lie and coverup for tRump💩💩💩🤪🤪🤪

  • Stargazer Gorzo says:

    Innocent Man? Really? That Fat Clown is many things, Innocent is not one of them👺👺👺💩💩💩🐷🐷🐷

  • Stargazer Gorzo says:

    I want to know who they are polling about that Orange Imbecile, so that is approval rating is @ 46%…It has to be a bunch of idiots that approve of this lying sack of Orange Slime, racist baggage and buffoons….The Orange Imbecile is a complete failure…that is Obvious for sure👺👺👺

  • If there was truly no reason for Mueller to testify then people would not be worried about him getting up and testifying!

  • The food-obsessed "Predisent" infact declared that "they have stollen" which, even among his indelible imbecilities, really takes the cake.

  • Sukhbir Sekhon says:

    Obstruction obstruction obstruction.
    And he wants an extra 2 years for time lost due to Mueller report. This guy will clutch at any straw to hold on to power because once he's no longer president the indictments are going to rain down on him.

  • Joseph Zrnchik says:

    America loves every time Trump beats them. Think how pathetic CNN will look when Trump wins the presidency again. They will look like shrill little girls that nobody takes seriously.

  • Kimberly Sikorski says:

    🤓Congress should go after the accounting firms, the banks, the lawyers for the banks and accounting firms that PREPARED Chumpy s taxes. Lock THEM up for contempt. THEN you will have some leverage.

  • barry williams says:

    Typical Trump, getting the department of Justice to do for free what he is supposed to be paying private lawyers to do.

  • Alabama Mothman says:

    Cant wait to see NP's and Crying Chukie's, Maxine Waters tax returns leaked. To find out how they got so rich on a government salary. Because the House "overlook" committee, wont touch it.

  • Victor Carter says:

    More nonsense from MSNBC…what is wrong with these people? They can't get one story right…after peddling lies for 3 years, you would think they might stop reckless biased harrassment of the president.

  • When will MSNBC get us the dollar amounts and names of CON gress people who had to pay out sexual assault claims for victims of D.C. scum ?

  • THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAVE GONE ROUGE THEY HAVE NO RIGHTS TO ASK FOR TRUMPS TAXES . JUST LIKE THEY HAVE NO RIGHTS TO ASK FOR ANYONES TAXES . ALL HAVE THE RIGHTS TO PRIVACY ON OUR TAXES AND AS I SAID THE DEMOCRATS HAVE GONE ROUGE AND ARE TRYING TO BREAK OUR CONSTITUTIONAL LAWS BY DOING SO . THIS IS WHY THEY WANT TO GET RID OF OUR CONSTITUTION SO THEY CAN TAKE AWAY ALL OUR RIGHTS . WAKE UP PEOPLE AND SEE THE DEMOCRAT MUSLIM PARTY FOR WHO THEY REALLY ARE AND STAND FOR. BY RIGHTS THE DEMOCRATS SHOULD HAVE BEEN REMOVED ALONG TIME AGO .

  • Someone needs to tell Trump, this will NEVER be over, as long as he keeps obstructing. Congress is NEVER going to say, "Oh, you won't let Mueller testify? Oh, well. Who's up for golf?"

  • I want to see all their tax returns! Specially all the rich ones that only work for the government and somehow have tens of millions… I.E. Hillary, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters and on and on…

  • America:
    You've place an unabashed criminal in your White House who has surrounded himself with liars and thieves and now there is nothing that you will ever be able to get rid of them. Nothing, ever… …and that includes elections. 
    11:19 The more they ∫ℏi⊤ on you, the more of you there are that approve of it. So utterly pathetic.

  • We Americans are telling the world we are ok with his BS, let's just impeach him, and up the elections. The simple fact is between the basic crimes he's done.

  • The fact that he has everyone that comes to our country stay in his hotels, means the American people are flipping the bill, and he's getting paid. He's broke, becoming the president was his way to get the money flowing to him again. Policies that allow him to benefit financially in the long run. He's a mastermind villain. He doesn't care about anyone without his last name. He's only a Republican now because it benefits him. He's playing the long game!!!

  • bisquitnspanky says:

    Trumpists: I know you're out there reading this. Please take a moment and explain to we the simple minded normal people why it is that the rules are now and always have been different for Trump. Thank you!

  • Gregory Rogalsky says:

    The democrat's are pathetic..The biggest witch hunt in history which concluded with the a nothing burger has morphed in to we need to see Trump's taxes.? What a sad joke. The only bright spot is that on the end Trump will be the President for another 6 years.

  • Let's all remember, there was a reason that Mueller was instructed to investigate. I just can't remember why.

  • flako f. babbyyy says:

    i wouldnt like to fight for anything that clearly show me a motive to, and fight hard, for at the end my opponent to win even after him winning me looking bad for something that my opponent came ready and way before i even knew anything.

  • Scottish Wifey says:

    Bollocks, there was nothing stopping him doing his job, it’s not as if he’s was incarcerated during the investigation.

  • 1) Sure, lets start by giving Obama 6 years back of his Presidency. Then maybe a Supreme Court Judge.
    2) If being under investigation for 2 years deserve "reparation". Do you think getting kidnapped and put in slavery for generations also deserve some sort of … "reparation"?

    Begin these proceedings…now

    Any federal employee involved in blocking the House commitee's request for Trump's taxes is subject to:
    26 U.S. Code § 7214. Offenses by officers and employees of the United States
    "(3) who with intent to defeat the application of any provision of this title fails to perform any of the duties of his office or employment; or..
    "shall be dismissed from office or discharged from employment and, upon conviction thereof, shall be fined not more than $10,000, or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both. The court may in its discretion award out of the fine so imposed an amount, not in excess of one-half thereof, for the use of the informer, if any, who shall be ascertained by the judgment of the court. The court also shall render judgment against the said officer or employee for the amount of damages sustained in favor of the party injured, to be collected by execution."

  • MatchstalkMan says:

    McCabe stood up to trump and was sacked just before he qualified for his full pension.

    Mueller will be kept on as an employee as long as his testimony could harm trump.

    Obstruction, obstruction, obstruction.

  • If trump takes action or orders someone to take action in preventing mueller from testifying I believe that would likely be deemed a new attempt at obstructing justice.

  • ProjectDreamCatcher says:

    Obviously, congress should NOW have the green light to just subpoena EVERYTHING that they want right from the start. This delay-delay-delay stuff is getting old. IT'S THE LAW – JUST DELIVER TRUMP'S FINANCES (and don't forget the LLC stuff).

  • ProjectDreamCatcher says:

    Everyone is talking about the "obstruction of justice" within the Mueller report. It sure seems like we're seeing it DAILY now – mostly Barr and the Treasury Dept and the White House (which will have to be thoroughly disinfected now) !!
