    And I quote. Don the Con once said on TV, ” I don’t engage in coverups”. Let’s see those Tax returns Donnie Boy!!

    • @Rob Dim You are for sure too stupid to insult. Donald Trump is not nearly as corrupted as I am and I’m a pretty moral guy in church most every Sunday and some Thursday’s and guess what I was in the Navy in my early 20s so is there a giant log in your eye while you try to concentrate on Trump’s twig in his I think so. Acts chapter 25 verse 7 When he had arrived the Jews who had come down from Jerusalem stood around him, bringing many and serious charges against him they could not prove, you are too stupid to insult.

    • @taichou Levi What is wrong with you? He’s taxes are so complicated it has taken years to audit them. The irs probably passed out when they saw how much money he lost. 1.17b

  3. I just watched Trump throw his entire rally crowd under the bus.😂

      Hah ha

      Racist goobers so infatuated with OrangeCaligula that he flushes them down the toilet…..and they throw kisses to him as they circle the drain.

      Hah ha. Misguided people, but entertaining nevertheless.

    Bill Barr will go down in history as the man that destroyed democracy in the USA and helped facilitate it into a banana republic

      He will hang from a pole in the center of town

      @waylander75 dying on the right side of history is good for the soul. this dream like world is not as important as it seems, as the choices one makes are what matter.

    • @Florian Held You are too stupid to insult.

    • @Enstigator Official Acts chapter 25 verse 7 When he had arrived the Jews who had come down from Jerusalem stood around him, bringing many and serious charges against him they could not prove.

    Mark my words, Donald Trump will pardon himself and his children on his way out of office.

  6. As of June 10 The Washington Post has cataloged 10,796 times Trumpo The Aryan Clown has lied to the American people since taking office.

    • Kenshannon Jeter | July 18, 2019 at 7:28 PM | Reply

      Trump got his base hypnotized from his lies.

    • The only low quality is trump and his zombie brained supporters. No morals, no decency, no respect for the law or Constitution. Can’t get any lower than that.

    • @RhondaH LOL, with an attitude like that you should understand the restraint required to be civil. Of course you don’t, or won’t and will not. I love the ridiculous hyperbole; keep on proving your leftist credentials!

    • @Kenshannon Jeter Hypnotized is rich coming from an adherent of MSNBC agitprop.

    • Corey Hillard | July 19, 2019 at 5:57 AM | Reply moron. Wave the white flag already, you guys are a joke.

  7. Last week, Big Baby Trump said that the Supreme Court was very “unfriendly” to him for not allowing him to violate the Constitution, by throwing out his Census case. Trump is so convinced that he’s an entitled, and omnipotent dictator, that he doesn’t realize that Federal courts, and the Supreme Court, doesn’t exist to be friendly or nice to him, or anyone else.

    And God bless Judge William H. Pauley III, for allowing this latest information to be released to the public.

    • @David J, thank you for your post. I hope for the day when Big Baby is in prison, complaining that the warden and guards are being very unfriendly to him. And getting no friendliness from all dark skinned inmates as well, who are aware of his history of inciting racist mania among the American depraved, against people of non-aryan pigmentation.

  8. How long before Mrs Trump is forced back to where she comes from. Stormy said the money she got paid for last time was only a finders fee.😬😩🎃

    • William Baker | July 19, 2019 at 12:37 AM | Reply

      Before: judging others is wrong, open borders…. etc
      Now: trumps wife is an illegal deport her.

    • ‘Sauce for the gilded goosey’ and all that, William…
      Or perhaps you prefer the more Biblical “…eye for an eye…” quote. 📖😏🙏

  9. Campaign Fraud, Tax Evasion, Bank Fraud, Wire Fraud, Insurance Fraud, Racketeering, Perjury, Not Stable Genius..🤔Hmmm?

      Non disclosure agreements are not campaign finance violations. Case is closed.

    • @Scott Gordon – And *so many more* … 📑
      *Every* state, *every* bank, *every* insurance company that #45’s *lied to* in his filings WILL be ‘comparing notes’ soon.
      And *then* #45’s life becomes…a *neverending nightmare* of litigations and losses. 💸📑👋

  10. America is being run by rapists and racists. It’s time for a revolution.

  11. hitler trump Will do anything to hide ALL Any thing incriminating, What happened to getting his taxes ?

    • Hide? These documents were released by the presiding Judge. You moronic leftists can’t get over the election. 2020 is going to feel like a tonne of bricks.

    This must make Barr guilty to obstruction of justice. Is the judge ALSO corrupt?

    • @nigel cairns, are you braindead? HTF do you read tolerance of Barr in my comment? ? ? ? ?

    • hategreed1 – I hope you realize that you are getting into a spat with a foreigner that is interjecting into US politics.
      Just because somebody says something you agree with, doesn’t mean that they aren’t a foreign agent.
      Wake up.

      @Leeanne Bishop how do you know?

    • nigel cairns | July 18, 2019 at 11:13 PM | Reply

      @hategreed1 Yes I am braindead. Because you make Barr’s behavior sound routine

    Time for Trump to have a peace rally & then invade Poland. Sound familiar?

    • The Huxley Agnostic | July 18, 2019 at 7:03 PM | Reply

      Wooooaaah there … Canada is Poland, in this new scenario.

    • @The Huxley Agnostic LOL

      @Leeanne Bishop 🤣🤣🤣🤣 your right

    • CyberWarcraft | July 18, 2019 at 10:13 PM | Reply

      @The Huxley Agnostic Nope…in this iteration Mexico is Czechoslovakia and Canada is France.

    • The Huxley Agnostic | July 18, 2019 at 10:35 PM | Reply

      @CyberWarcraft We, are the ones who were also part of the former British colonies in North America. We also had many loyalists from their colonies come to Canada. We’d be Prussia or Poland, and since I don’t think we’d up and join them, that would make us Poland.

      Or, maybe we can split up … Our conservative mid-west = Prussia, Italy, and Spain … Ontario = Poland … Quebec = France … Newfoundland, being an ocean island, can play England … NWT = Russia …

  14. Everblue Freediving | July 18, 2019 at 4:46 PM | Reply

    Barr puts Trump before the law… wonder what the motivation is? Kompramat or the promise of a payoff…? Or both?

    • @Leeanne Bishop He is almost caught, leftist retardation alert, any moment now!

    • Everblue – We’re wagering that #45’s kids *and* cadre have been gulping Xanax by the handfuls, *praying* that SDNY *isn’t* outside their door…with *arrest warrants* in hand. 💸📑👋

    • lil jack russell | July 18, 2019 at 11:25 PM | Reply

      Maybe pics of Barr on Epstein’s island?…

    • Everblue Freediving | July 18, 2019 at 11:32 PM | Reply

      @lil jack russell he isn’t recusing himself so he can steer the Epstein matter to an “acceptable outcome”.

  15. Trump the evangelical Christian leader the antichrist.

    • Leeanne Bishop | July 18, 2019 at 6:24 PM | Reply

      Well step on his head and watch it pop

    • CyberWarcraft | July 18, 2019 at 10:07 PM | Reply

      Well, the Antichrist (according to Fundamentalists) is supposed to come to earth as a politician….and Jared Kushner does own 666 Park Avenue…so you do the Kabbelahist math….

    We know there are sealed indictments on Trump.

  18. Barr stopping invest. into chump crime family is unacceptable!!

  19. Ridiculous that Cohen is the only one prosecuted. We should be suspicious of The Attorney General.
