  1. Convicted of seven felonies yet seven to nine years might be too harsh. Two just systems folks

  2. Roger Stone places crosshairs on the Judge! On social media…

    POTUS : This is horrible and very unfair situation… Cannot allow this miscarriage of justice!

    • I wonder if Epstein’s cell is available? You know, to make sure Stone remains safe and all.

      Shut up and get everybody you know to vote them out. Otherwise a victory by a few millions will not work

    • General Wattao – Too simplistic, not everyone has the ability to withhold congressionally approved military aid to a vulnerable nation to investigate their political rival.

    Wake up, America and VOTE BLUE in every election esp in November

    • ​@Richard Rosenbaum Either party will tax you. But the Republicans will give your tax money and your social security to billionaires. They will ensure their donors continue profiting immensely from the Healthcare system, literally at the expense of working peoples lives.

    • @Terrie Vaden when you don’t know the facts you don’t know, Trump turned out more votes in New Hampshire than Bernie and Pete combined!!

    • @Richard Rosenbaum. So are you saying you have experienced huge tax relief under this admin? LOL! They have done NOTHING for me. You must be in the rich 1%, dude!!

    • Oh and you could not be further from a democracy in the US than under this present administration. Democracy departed already.

  4. In truth, “William Barr-en” shouldn’t have been hired in the *first* place either.

    He should be thrown in jail for abuse of power for this.

    Together with Trump.

    • Keep on crying, Loser demoBRATS.

    • @Kevin NYC You are right. If Trump is re elected they will make sure that they changed all the constitution and he can be President for life or crown as the king of the USA. Wellcome to banana republic of the Divided State of USSRA

    • @Victoria Drella Barr should be doing exactly what he’s doing which is the exact opposite of the lefts favorite former attorney general, jeff sessions!!

    Resign ? He should be arrested

  6. Bill Barr doesn’t have a bogus memo stopping him for being prosecuted for corruption. He doesn’t have “absolute immunity” either. Roger Stone’s original sentencing recommendation IS NOT excessive…it aligns with legal precedent

    • @Annie Unfortunately 45 will

    • @Annie Or any other Democratic President.

    • Actually, Stone could have gotten up to 50 years which at his age of 67 would have been well beyond a life sentence, so 7 to 9 years does not seem on the “harsher” side at all.

    • @Dawn Short The recommendation is within the sentencing guidelines. Stone’s representatives can argue the contrary and any mitigating factors.
      Nothing — and no one — should come between those two court pleadings.
      The judge is going to be furious when the basic norms of this criminal case are being “adjusted” in public by self-interested politicians and their cronies for the benefit of “friends” convicted by a jury.

    • @enjay py “Roger Stone’s original sentencing recommendation IS NOT excessive…it aligns with legal precedent”.
      That recommendation was also based upon the DOJ’s own guidelines, something the Republicans seem to not mention.

  7. Good luck with Lindsay Graham doing anything, he has already been bought & paid for.

  8. This is so rediculous we are extremely tired of Trump’s Treatourous treasonous devilish ways!!!

  9. GOP = Greedy Oligarchs for Putin

  10. Lindsey will be looking for the Whistle blower to ask him why they started ‘all this crap’, he ain’t gonna help take down his master, he’s a good little piggy.

  11. Barr should have been gone long ago and disbarred.

    • rick and tony are going on their first date 💕 🌈 congratulations! 🥳 🎉

      who said the trumpuglyclans are homophobic? 😡 😤. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • @Ross Glasow any suggestions on what I should wear?

    • @Rod 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      @Jd learn to speak English before you make such a ridiculous comment “should have” and not”should of” – Barr was voted in by Congress, and approved, end of story. So you would have him questioned by lying Adam Schiff who made a complete mess of the impeachment fake trial and believe me when Barr appears before Congress, you will perhaps learn the whole truth about what happened in the Mueller Russian Hoax and the crimes committed at the FISA Court. Be careful what you wish for

  12. Impeach trump again and add more charges.

    I have been watching all trump moves/actions, could see a dictator in the making , and I will borrow Fiona Hills phrase………..”and here we are “

  14. Let’s get behind the Dem that’s calling for Bill Barr to Re-sign wake up people’s come on

  15. “A republic, if we can keep it.”
    It’s lost, and a mad king sits on his throne.
    This country is now a real banana republic.

    • Do you think the Coup news will show video clips of the Horrors of long lines at grocery stores and empty shelves that comes from Socialism !
      Or a perfect example of Quid Pro Joe over and over then have a bunch of Anti America Coup Analist discussing it !

      @Kevin NYC … why don’t you ?

    • wendell gaskins | February 12, 2020 at 9:22 PM | Reply

      @PreMeditatED Noise… you mean the hard way ?

  16. Bill Barr should be Prosecuted, Period.

  17. No law in the USA when Trump start saving his friends from prison

  18. The only law Barr obeys is the “rule of Barr” the “rule of law” means nothing to him.

  19. Just like Lev Parnas said in his interview: Trump wasn’t that powerful until he hired William Barr. Lindsey Graham will not do anything because he is also involved to begin with. Something must to be done now to stop all this bs.

    Barr should be DIS-BARRED! Then charged, convicted and sent to prison.
