      I think you missed the Mueller memo. I heard him say no evidence. This, after 2 years and 40 million dollars. LOL

      Farm trolls supporting farm trolls.

    • @RUSSIAN SALAD DRESSING : No more comments from you today. You’ve exceeded the allowable number of willfully ignorant lies for one day. Come back tomorrow and spread more stupidity.

    • @RUSSIAN SALAD DRESSING …hey Russian troll… The crap that Trump and Freak On X-tasis said was not the truth… The only reason your Cheeto god was not indicted is because of the memo some Republican wrote long ago about not indicting a sitting president..and at that time the president was Nixon… Another republicon…. See??? Republicons bend the law to escape prosecution… Your orange cheeto god is lucky… And now protected by the GOP…Government Of Putin… He will be out on 2020 and prayfulky he and his family “cosa nostra” Trumpino family will face 20/20 years in prison….

  2. How much louder can the republican party scream guilty.

  3. this is why the gop should not b trusted – ever!!!!!

    • Rudy Penza : Stop shilling for Trump, son. Trump’s Tax Returns ALONE would finish him, which is why you’re putting so much effort into your shillary. But, the testimony, the deals, all the records from all the banks and businesses? Combined with the downturning economy, that Trump Trolls can no longer pretend was anything to do with Trump in the first place. You either don’t know political history, or you’re lying to protect the Orange Orifice . . . Scummy kind of person 🦠

      same could be said when nixon was pardonded, yet it only took a few generations before they again had the powers to ruin the US

    • @Ash Roskell i completely agree…you confirm my point

    • djc but you trust democratic voters doing all these mass shootings

    Investigate every Republican because they’d all be guilty

  5. They( Republicans) just admited their guilty!

    • Bjorn Santens | August 17, 2019 at 1:13 AM | Reply

      Of course…and still, nothing moves…nothing happens.
      Does the president and his crooks get like a 20 crime card…only after 20 obvious crimes, you can act…or what???

    • RUSSIAN SALAD DRESSING | August 17, 2019 at 8:47 AM | Reply

      It’s ‘they’re’ guilty. And the AG Barr is declassifying all those FBI memos. I am excited. Aren’t you?

    • Madeline Beauchamps | August 17, 2019 at 9:01 AM | Reply


      Unfortunately, AG Barr cannot be trusted. Yes it “you’re”.

  6. Lol. America, I’m sorry, But you’re screwed until you take to the streets in protests disrupting your economy. You will not VOTE your way out of the mess you’re in. The Russians are too entrenched. Good Luck.

    • @Trumprules Clintondrools i think you don’t understand what ‘answer my question’ means. Actually, i don’t think that, i know it.

    • @Trumprules Clintondrools actually, it is run by local state and city governments. The worst states from an education perspective are almost entirely Republican led states. These are easy to find facts based on data from the same Republican led organizations.

    • @Trumprules Clintondrools actually, Texas does more so as than the fed. The books and materials have to be approved on a state by state process. As Texas has such a large population and is considered one of the hardest to win approval for, the educational materials are designed to pass the texas board of education first and then other states typically get to choose from what was designed for texas. California is the second most influential state. Common core is a minimalist approach that has been completely watered down by Republicans.

      @digiryde if states were really in charge they wouldnt have had to water common core down , they could have simply rejected it if they were truly independent

    The GOP isn’t going to be in control forever and when the smoke clears they’re going to have to answer for their treasonous acts.

    • @RUSSIAN SALAD DRESSING Republikkklans are traitors to my country and they have always been traitors because it’s in their nature. Confederate flag waving traitors

    • This involves corruption in a federal election, the House could open an investigation because of this and they could interview the FEC while they do it.

    • Lunar Moonlight | August 17, 2019 at 11:13 AM | Reply

      Not while Moscow Mitch has all his federal judges set in place. There’s still another 1.5 years of metastatic republican cancer migration.

    • Timothy McCaskey 2020 sounds like a wonderful year.

    • @RUSSIAN SALAD DRESSING Uranium One is a made up issue by the GOP. Shep Smith on your own state run media debunked it years ago. Go back to your pizzagate and QAnon.

  8. Russian money went to Trumps 2 sons, Don Jr and Eric. They tweeted about it back in 2016/17…. Happy about all of the money coming from Russia. That’s what they stated……

    No surprise. The (N)ational (R)ussia (A)ssociation is one of the most unAmerican organizations and has been for decades (in the late 90’s it turned radical, pushing extremist agendas even most of their members don’t want, and turned into advertisers for gun manufacturers).

    • I remember when h.w. Bush recinded his lifetime membership in the 1990s for this very reason. As did my father.

    All of these traitors must be voted
    out of office in 20/20 vote blue👥

      Well, we blocked one in 2016. I guess we will have to get rid of more in the House in 2020. MAGA 2020

    Mafia Trump and big neck Barr will obstruct all this investigations by FEC regarding to Russian money into Trump’s campaign in 2016.

  12. Scion of Madness | August 17, 2019 at 1:13 AM | Reply

    Of course they do. They all want to keep those rubles pouring in.

    • RUSSIAN SALAD DRESSING | August 17, 2019 at 8:44 AM | Reply

      Yup, all those rubles that found their way into the Clinton Crime Family’s bank account. Think Uranium One.

    • @RUSSIAN SALAD DRESSING Uranium One was a made up conspiracy theory that even Shep Smith on Fox News disproved. Go back to your pizzagate and QAnon conspiracy theories kiddo.

  13. Stifled Voice | August 17, 2019 at 1:14 AM | Reply

    six member FEC has 1 dem, 2 GOP, 1 ind. and two vacant seats. no surprise there that russian money funneled thru NRA isn’t being investigated

    • RUSSIAN SALAD DRESSING | August 17, 2019 at 9:02 AM | Reply

      After 2 and half years and 19 lawyers and 40 FBI agents and 40,000,000 dollars and the Frame-up was exposed. This must make you positively raging mad. Insane squared. Now it’s the NRA and Russian Collusion. Your desperation is showing. The declassifications are coming. Hillary and Barry in Orange Jump-suits. Lovely.

    • @RUSSIAN SALAD DRESSING You do realize that the investigation turned a profit, right? Also, over 100 illegal contacts between the Trump campaign and Russia. Then there is the issue that Trump keeps bowing to Putin on international issues. Something is going o, and when Trump is out of office it will be investigated and charges will be filed.

  14. Make no mistake, Trump, the Republican party, and the NRA, have all been bought and compromised with Russian money. That’s enough to make any American take a knee during the National Anthem. Trump probably believes that hugging the flag will somehow make-up for his treasonous activities, but he is sadly mistaken.

    Republicunts need to go. I’ve had enough of them flushing our Democracy down the toilet.

    • Da_Most_Shady Aren’t the left with their socialist concepts a greater threat to “democracy “?

    • @Jim Skarwski

      Dump and you Dumpsters are the laughingstock of the entire world. Around the whole globe and around the clock the laughter never stops.

    • Inappropriate Mushroom | August 17, 2019 at 6:16 AM | Reply

      get a job loser

    • @Jim Skarw No, it’s conservative ignorance by a longshot.

      Democracy doesn’t depend on capitalist greed, but educated, involved citizens – precisely what republicans fight against.

  16. Thank you for your service Commissioner Weintraub!

    Republicans are traitors to Our sovereign constitution and Our Democracy

  18. The Gop/Nra and the whole trump group are one large money laundering racket for the Russian mafia.

  19. Phil Broeders | August 17, 2019 at 3:43 AM | Reply

    Wow. Just wow. The GOP are essentially encouraging treason under your noses.

  20. Lets designate the NRA as a domestic terror organization!
