  • Rose Sanghavi says:

    Why can we Impeach Mouthpiece of Trump { Disgusting Barr } along with Bully Trump ? we clearly see the Saga of Trump Putin and Kim { love affairs with same kind }what other proof we need. Barr or Trump lying outright on front of us. he was hired or Bought to serve Trump and only Trump..Not american people while he gets paid by US Tax Payers. we must impeach trump and Chicken Dumb Barr

  • Kimberley Morris says:

    The Democrats are being played they are too nice to the Republicans! They need to get a back bone and become nastier

  • Anthony Davis says:

    The investigation of the investigators is insanity. Just read the intro to the Mueller Report book. It is obvious they question the legitimacy of the report at the get go. They claim the special council investigation shouldn't even have happened in the first place. GMAB. Give Congress the Full Non-redacted Report already.

  • Bonita Janssen says:

    INVESTIGATION OF THE INVESTIGATORS. GOD HELP US, WE ARE IN BIG TROUBLE. God is the only one who can stop the ANTI-CHRIST, AND HE WILL.

  • Adahm _Greggang says:

    George Washington said political parties will destroy America happen once going to happen twice if we don't fix it

  • Trump was warned about Flynn by Sally Yates and she was fired for it, while Flynn was kept in place until the NYT exposed him. This HENCHMAN is even more disgusting than Trump himself.

  • Edward Furey says:

    Hippo Barr will answer Fox's questions, but not the questions of representatives of the American people!!!!!

  • Remember Sally Yates ? We do. Before she got fired, she warned djt that Flynn was compromised by a foriegn gov; at which point "she" became a liability & promptly fired. If he cant corrupt them, he fires them. Wm Barr is still employed.

  • Remembering Brian 's lies about his role in hurricane Katrina. Why is this liar on television? Msnbc Lying once to the nation is a moral problem. Hersey. You have video of Trump being warned? Or some liars words? Maybe DOJ should investigate lying Brian or msnbc teleprompter screens? Is he on purpose lying to the world? He has no direct evidence. Just what the teleprompter tells him to say.

  • Americans, you are on the verge of losing your Allies. Time to end this threat to the planet's future. We will not support Bolton's decision to withdraw from the Iranian Agreement on Nuclear Proliferation. They were compliant, and if you were so eager for Regime Change you would've never reinstated the Shah in 1956. This stinks of MBS and you will not threaten our Soldiers' lives with your Lies. Allow your sons and daughters lose their lives and watch what was a Nation that held promise. Now you're permitting a corrupt and evil Administration sink your nation lost of all promise and potential, and for what? What gains have you made? Even more perilous has been the failure to recognise that once Yemen's genocide is complete the next target by MBS will be Israel. Has 18 years eradicated your memory that 15 of the 19 Hijackers, and Osama bin Laden were Saudi. The last plane that carried civilians took the bin Ladens back to Saudi Arabia.

    By your inaction you are complicit and have no shame. By your inaction you are complicit and lost so much of your credibility that even your president's Lover in Pyongyang took the money and resumed testing of missiles that can carry nuclear warheads that can land in the USA. By your inaction you are complicit and threatening the safety of our Planet. Save your Country from the Tyranny of Extremism. The Codes to your Nuclear Arsenal should be revoked and returned to safe keeping of your interim leadership as indicated by the 25th Amendment in the Constitution of the United States of America.

  • Yeah, treason is long jail sentences, yet the kingpin of this con game roams free! Enjoy it while you can. When karma comes knocking on the door, your gold plated toilet will be running away from your fart holders that you call butt.

  • David Sleeman says:

    This is a propaganda machine!!! You ran collusion delusion for 2 years! Justice is coming ! !Comey is the first domino

  • Robert Richardson says:

    The republicans who keep their mouths shut HAVE read the report. The others run on at the mouth like fools misdirecting the public.

  • God Loving American says:

    Trump2020 MAGA WWG1WGA….. MSNBC is an Evil Lying Lefties talking Head…. Obummer will be charged With Treason

  • Gregory Parrott says:

    Pathological lying appears to be infectious. It is past time to arrest Barr on 'Inherent Contempt' for his open refusal to comply with a Congressional subpoena. In U.S. history, 'Inherent Contempt' has only been invoked once, and that was 85 years ago.

  • If so many media wish Trump be impeached, so many TV commentators unscrupulously sneer at him, then why he was elected, Is it God's will or not? Then how to explain the phrase: In God We Trust ?

  • john hopkins says:

    "…nothing like this has ever happened in American politics…"; trivia question: who were the three dudes at The Watergate Hotel? (Republicans??? Nah!)

  • Trumps Dantichrist says:

    I knew Flynn was being investigated and I am not American… Trump thinks we have short-term memories and are stupid

  • stonesforlife says:

    Anyone else noticed that trumps wife ( can never remember her russian name) trumps daughter ( can never remember her russian name) and trumps son have disappeared from the public eye recently…

  • GOP trying to tare apart America with all the messy stunts they pull I hate having a reality tv personality for POTUS DRAMA nonstop why couldn’t the GOP have put a better candidate up instead of a crook like Trump

  • Another lie. Barr really needs to be fired by the American people. By the way, who is paying for this investigation? This sounds like exactly what Agnew and Nixon did, when they were caught. I am sickened,as a moderate American.

  • So is Trump ill? Is his memory going South? It is either or, he is a habitual liar or his mind is going? Think about it.

  • Are they trying to deflect Jr’s meeting with the Rep. enabling Senate? Will Graham and MCConnell, now pick up on this new lie? Are, we the people going to let this small group of people trash us at home and around the world? How much are we willing to put up with? Our very Democracy is at stake. Putin started out like this too. This isn’t, fiction, folks, we are being duped and led down the path, the same path the Russian people were led. Has anyone of you even read about how much trouble Russia is in, we’ll probably not, Putin took away the Russian people’s free press.

  • Joe Humpamonkey says:

    I love these type of reports. Call me sadistic, but watching a bunch of brainwashed sheep so excited they hyper ventilate over any piece of excrement they are thrown is the greatest entertainment in town. I hope you never return to the real world.

  • Conny Bartels says:

    Yes we never had such a corrupt lying thieving President in history! So out with him and his criminal administration and family.

  • Kathleen Blachere says:

    Pure bull… Don the Con at it again. Obama personally warned him and so did others. Barr needs to be DISbarred. Trump first learned about the pee tapes from a friend who is a former Russian. Magically…the sanctions on his company were lifted. Read the report. Now we learn Mitch made a deal with Russians to build a plant in Kentucky.

  • trump's a better liar than barr – I've never see anyone do the kind of rapid fire blinking he does every time he lies

  • Christopher Lee Jr. says:

    The F.B.I. is too important to this country, and entirely too much to do to waste their valuable time investigating nonsense , whereby in the process of this investigation came the suspicion of conspiracy with Russia to aid Mr. Trump in winning the election, period the end.??😌😌😌

  • Spying on Americans is perfectly legal. the NSA does it! the FBI does it. the CIA does it. It is not treason.

  • It's super interesting that he's so concerned with underlying evidence and a proper examination of evidence about the "oranges" but he couldn't be bothered to take in the FULL Muller report before tripping over his own feet to declare Chumps innocence.

  • Darren Brittain says:

    someone please hang this fool! Russia if you're spying on this thread do something bout your puppet!he's an embarrassment to the world

  • Grandraplady akaAMB says:

    trump is simply put. A DAMNED LIAR period If any fools believes his BS they are in the same category. Sally Yates was fired when she went directly to the WH and told them Flynn was trouble. WE ALL REMEMBER THAT DON'T WE? and another thing it was a Republican who commissioned the Steele dossier, but because folks don't read anymore this hasn't been highlighted. It's time for some truth folks. He's a crook and a con and America is under attack and he's aiding and abetting the adversaries all because he's compromised financially.

  • Why was Carter Page cleared after 3 warrants…Why wasn't Trump warned of Carter Page as being a 3rd consecutively separate warrants as a likely Russian Spy….

  • All those people at those trump rallies clapping and cheering blinded in headlights lol they clowned on it on seth Meyers

  • God can you guys get your facts straight for just once you're like the Perpetual fake news machine you guys are worse than the National Enquirer get a job

  • Hey Humpty Dumpty Trumpty be care for what you wish for treason means long jail sentences and we are getting you on treason and you should get a long prison sentence and when you do don't drop your soap in the shower leave it on the floor or you will be Humpty Gumpty Dumpty Trumpty you will not like it! Smile if its done on camera so we can all see it!

  • The media keeps saying that the dossier wasn't the only thing that Peter Strozk used to obtain those warrants. What the media isn't telling you; The other stuff they used to obtain those warrants was even worse. The Democrats don't want those FISA warrants declassified. This is bad, and it's getting worse.

  • Everyone wbo warned Trump about Flynn was fired therefore by Trump and now he claims he didn't know. You need a whole new category of adjectives to describe this hypocrisy..

  • He launched and investigation into the oranges of the Russia probe. The beginnings if you will, the oranges of the Russia hoax.

  • Maga man is just trying to go for payback. So he sends out his mini me Barr Barr to follow up on this GOP shat cascade

  • We are now officially living in a cartoon … people abusing power accusing other people for abusing power just like a 3 year old accuse their parents from taking his blankie.

  • Trump tells an obvious lie.
    His lie then, naturally, burns to ashes as soon as it is exposed to sunlight.  
    What do his followers do? 
    They declare whoever opened the blinds to be an enemy of the people…

  • Eric Wattree says:

    CONGRESS NEEDS TO STOP PLAYING GAMES AND BRING THIS CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS TO A HEAD WITH ITS POWER OF INHERENT CONTEMPT
    .
    It's been reported by several news organizations that Attorney General Bar has even taken to mocking Speaker Pelosi by jokingly asking her after he ignored a congressional subpoena, "Did you bring the handcuffs?" So for congress to do anything less than utilize all of its Constitutional powers is to invite disrespect of its authority by both the people involved, and the public at large, because it makes congress look like it’s unsure of its own authority. Thus, the speaker should have that arrogant political hack locked up, because he's not only thumbing his nose at her, but at congress, the United States Constitution, and the American people.
    .
    The National Constitutional Center states in its publication, Constitutional Daily, that “Justice Willis Van Devanter made perhaps the most famous statement of these powers in McGrain v. Daugherty, a 1927 Supreme Court decision about Mally S. Daugherty, the brother of former Attorney General Harry Daugherty. A select Senate committee issued a subpoena for Daugherty to testify and to also surrender records from an Ohio bank. When Daugherty refused to comply after a second subpoena, the Senate passed a resolution issuing a warrant and authorizing a Senate deputy to take Daugherty into custody. Daugherty filed a habeas petition against his detention. A lower court ruled that the Senate exceeded its powers by detaining Daugherty, freeing him. However, the Supreme Court upheld his conviction, holding that under the Constitution, Congress has the power to compel witnesses and testimony “to obtain information in aid of the legislative function.”
    .
    “Each house of Congress has power, through its own process, to compel a private individual to appear before it or one of its committees and give testimony needed to enable it efficiently to exercise a legislative function belonging to it under the Constitution,” Van Devanter said. “This has support in long practice of the houses separately, and in repeated Acts of Congress, all amounting to a practical construction of the Constitution.”
    .
