  1. That means Trump would do literally anything to remain in office in 2020

      You mean like create a false narrative, lie to the FISA courts to get a FISA warrant using a political organization (DNC) to spy on a presidential campaign (Trump) that had better than excellent chances to win against your corrupt and criminal candidate (Hussein Obama/ Hiltery Rotten Clinton)?

      @NESS DAGOD Typical, predictable leftist dribble…………….’ your mom’ What are you 9? If there is one thing that the communist/DemonRats made crystal clear yesterday, is that President Trump WILL BE re-elected in a landslide in 2020.

    The long arm of the law will ultimately get Trump.

    • Stasia Spade | July 24, 2019 at 2:44 PM | Reply

      @Default Name Bull,he came out and said Trump can be charged as soon as he is not President!

    • Default Name | July 24, 2019 at 2:56 PM | Reply

      Stasia Spade never said ” should “, just ” can “. He was addressing legality.

    • Linda Sandoval | July 24, 2019 at 4:09 PM | Reply

      It better

    • drahcir renreb | July 25, 2019 at 1:33 AM | Reply

      @Default Name with a comment like that, I doubt your even capable of an intelligent conversation. Especially when you think people on a right wing site are having such. The cherry on top was the “sigh”, people who “sigh” are ussualy out of ideas and grasping at straws.

  6. That’s all I want to hear. Vote Trump out of the White House and get him INDICTED.🙏👏🙌

  7. The Federal Penitentiary Will Be Leaving The Light On For Donald.

    • HILLARY ALSO !

    • Yes the light will be bright. When DEMOCRATS ARE walking. To intake to be stripped and hosed down. Guess who’ll appear from the light. MR DONALD J TRUMP BURNING THERE RELEASE PAPERS. Laughing LIKE count DRACULA. AUH AUH AUH!

    • Illya Kuryakin | July 24, 2019 at 5:04 PM | Reply

      Are the walls closing in on him, again?

    • @J Russ dude he’s 97 years old. He’s only got a handful of years left on this earth, regardless

  8. so, this olc ruling is just like trump’s bonespurs deferment ?

    • James Hutchins | July 25, 2019 at 1:58 AM | Reply

      sean jokela it was a studied decision that POTUS 45 could be criminally charged after leaving office…clearly stated by Mueller “YES”.

    • @James Hutchins funny that it was a republican that got that out of him.

    • Pretty similar to fighting to not testifying under oath in person with anyone from the Mueller team, for over 2 years.
      Did his reply’s to questions on paper, after going through the “lawyer” mill. In crayon – allegedly.

    • @sean jokela Might have been expecting a different answer I think.

    • James Hutchins | July 25, 2019 at 6:26 AM | Reply

      sean jokela POTUS 45 can expect to be charged.

  9. Trump Is guilty, if Trump wasn’t the president he would’ve been indicted

    • LOL. Trumpflakes and Russian trolls are all over this thread desperately spinning reality as usual, trying to use pretzel logic to do what the Mueller report and his testimony today didn’t do – exonerate Donald Trump.

    • Illya Kuryakin | July 24, 2019 at 5:15 PM | Reply

      “I want to go back to one thing that was said this morning by [Representative Ted] Lieu, who said, and I quote, ‘You didn’t charge the President because of the [Office of Legal Counsel] opinion.’ That is not the correct way to say it,” Mueller said. “As we say in the report, and as I said at the opening, we did not reach a determination as to whether the President committed a crime.”

    • @Illya Kuryakin You Are misrepresenting Mueller’s conclusions about the reason he didn’t pursue charges against Trump. Here is the exchange that makes it clear that it was only the olc opinion that kept him from indicting Trump –
      “The reason, again, that you did not indict Donald Trump is because of OLC opinion that you cannot indict a sitting president, correct?” Lieu asked Mueller.
      “That is correct,” Mueller replied. ( https://news.yahoo.com/mueller-edges-closer-to-saying-trump-committed-obstruction-160919062.html )

      if Trump wasn’t the president, he is still a billionaire and will still not be charged.

    OLC needs to change its Rules. Presidents Should NEVER BE ABOVE THE LAW!

    So there we go then, trump is guilty of a crime! When is impeachment proceedings going to Start?

    The stakes of the 2020 election just went up. Removing him from office is the only way he’ll get prosecuted, starting with SDNY. Nancy is never gonna impeach, let’s be real.

  13. Metal Island | July 24, 2019 at 1:04 PM | Reply

    Bottom line, Trump is guilty

  14. The Republicans clearly were not interested in getting at the truth.

  15. We know he can be charged what would make donald trump not accept russian interference again so much of his campaign will be to find out any dirt on another candidate to make himself look good and down play what we just heard from Mr. Mueller.

  16. I’m a Republican that won’t be voting for Trump in 2020

  17. ” Do you believe that the president can be charged with obstruction of justice after he leaves office?”
    Mueller: ” YES, emphatically YES!!”
    I bet that republican regrets asking that question. 😂😄😆

    • I had to see who asked those great questions and lol, a Republican! Nice! Wondering if he did it on purpose. Bet Trump is going to Tweet nasty things about that Repub now.

      @David J I agree… I’m just laughing hard when he was asked on Camera if he would be watching,… he so no I’m not, maybe a little but definitely not…. lol… even that answer was Dotardish and stupid. Get ready for the spin coming… like the likes you have never seen

    • It was a cry to the base to keep his moron friend out of jail

  18. Let the blue wave be a tsunami in 2020 and then go for indictment. Because no man or woman is above the law.

    • Democrats are gonna dig GITMO! U KNOW THE ONE OBAMA Wanted to close down. That had all terrorists lock up. Who hate AMERICANS.

    • Illya Kuryakin | July 24, 2019 at 5:03 PM | Reply

      Except illegal immigrants and Crooked Hillary, right?

    • @Illya Kuryakin crooked Hillary is not the president and illegal immigrants didn’t vote. Crooked Trump is not exonerated and can be criminally charged when he’s not in office and this came from the Republican Mr. Muller

    • Chona Figuerres | July 24, 2019 at 5:36 PM | Reply

      So are the Clintons and OBAMA. Remember the Uranium One deal, which is the real crime.

    • @Chona Figuerres no evidence of wrongdoing has been found. But this morning I found out the racist president Mr. Trump has not been exonerated and could face charges once he leaves office in 2020. I know the Democrats are bad but the New Republicans are worst. I would go with the lesser of two evils. Republicans should be ashamed of themselves to get into office and commit these criminal acts.

  19. What do you call a president who’s above the law?

    A dictator!

    Bill Barr needs to resign. He is clearly a political hack, Trump’s hired gun. He does not care about the law or justice.
    He only cares about protecting, covering up and lying for Trump!
