  1. Barr = Trump swamp creature

  2. How much more does Trump have to do for you to start impeachment proceedings again? Again – WHY? BECAUSE HE’S STILL BREAKING THE LAW.

    • @Don Williams Campaign finance law – paying off a mistress to keep the story out of the news. That one got dropped thanks to Barr with no explanation. Barr has suppressed/obstructed several times including the whistleblower complaint which he tried to bury. They didn’t have enough votes from either the house or senate on the emoluments clause. I don’t understand that one.

    • @Deplorable Centrist Wrong see post above and educate yourself.

    • Why is everyone even wasting time replying to this David Schultz? He’s obviously not worth the time – like trying to educate a cockroach, not possible!

    • Impeachment and removal are not contingent on a violation of an existing criminal code…that’s intuitive. High crimes are abuse of power which was in the same articles Republicans brought against Bill Clinton.

  3. Barr was censored by the house and ran out of town in the 90s for the same act

    Behave badly as a public official, get impeached. Simple.

    • Vincent Graham | February 13, 2020 at 1:57 PM | Reply

      Renegade chic you are corrupt just like the rest of the criminal Democrats.

    • Deplorable Centrist | February 13, 2020 at 2:39 PM | Reply

      The Shreksorcist…..we really got em’ now!!!! Yes, please impeach him again so his approval rating will be even higher. Impeach him again so he becomes even stronger.

      Maybe in other countries. In the current USA, both the GOP Senate and the DOJ belong to Donald J. Trump, to do as he pleases, and half of the country approves of this.

    • Not in the US as it is today — the country has become a rogue state, no longer trusted by long-standing allied democracies but good buddies with the worst oppressive regimes, run by the whims of a guy getting closer to dictatorship every day

    • Their scared, he’s coming for them!

  5. Ranaldo Bobsled | February 13, 2020 at 12:48 PM | Reply

    Barr should have been impeached as soon as he started ignoring the law in support of Trump.

  6. Impeach all of the corrupt Republicans, aka every one of them!

  7. May God be with and protect Gillibrand in her fight for our country. Thank you.

    Forget all the investigations these crooks are doing dirt in the open

  9. it’s about time

  10. Madison Marshall | February 13, 2020 at 1:23 PM | Reply

    AG Barr is a “disgrace.”

  11. Impeach Barr now while theres still a shred of Hope left for our democracy!

  12. Thank you Kirsten Gillibrand … This is a constitutional crisis. War powers yes, but Trump is destroying the judicial system!

    • Montag theMagnificent | February 13, 2020 at 2:28 PM | Reply

      No. He’s saving the judiciary. No more overreaching activist judges. Thank you, Mitch

    • Senator marsha from brady bunch, here’s the real world: RADICAL LEFTIST JUDGE picked by BARACK HUSSAIN OBAMA; and FOUR LIBERAL LEFTIST TRUMP-HATING DEM PROSECUTORS N MUELLER RUSSIAN HOAX WHO R ATTACK DOGS FOR THEIR LOVELY CROOKED DEMS, complaining they didn’t get their RUSSIAN STYLE “JUSTICE.” Ur complaint dismissed.

  13. Bipartisan? Are you Kidding? GOP won’t even protect the VOTE!

    • @R McElhaney so what, harry Reid did the same thing as majority leader when the democrats held the Senate. This is old freaking news LOL

    • Roseann Caliento | February 13, 2020 at 6:36 PM | Reply

      R McElhaney he sat on bills because they made no sense

    • @Dave Schultz I predict your one of the sheep that follows the wolf in sheep clothing. One day the sheep clothing will fall off, and you will see the wolf inside.

  14. “See, evil always contains the seeds of its own destruction. It is ultimately negative, and therefore encompasses its downfall even at its moments of apparent triumph.” … Crowley .. “Good Omens”
    I hope this is true …

    • @Rand Kocher Too many lies to unpack there bro! Look these things up on a valid news station. not fox!!

    • @L D,
      – Name a valid news station? lol
      – Way back when there were only 3 tv stations, abc, cbs and nbc, all three were fake news.
      – 99% of American media is politically spun for the Democrat Party and always has been

    • @Rand Kocher Actually I guess I am old enough to cite The Encyclopedia Britannica as one of my first sources. However that encyclopedia had its’ obvious bias”! Everything with a grain of salt!

    • @Rand Kocher Maybe you should try going out in your neighborhood to talk and look at people to maybe get a different understanding of others situations?

    • @Rand Kocher Much can be learned from observation and understanding!

  15. Where are all the republican’s who defends the military and the patriots now? A bunch of traitors.

    • 130 likes vs 0. The problem is the people who need to hear this are listening to Fox and Donald Trump.

    • It’s time to military to get rid of this orange hippopotamus.

    • anthony magliaro clearly no critical thinking ability

    • Here’s 1—Senator marsha from brady bunch, here’s the real world: RADICAL LEFTIST JUDGE picked by BARACK HUSSAIN OBAMA; and FOUR LIBERAL LEFTIST TRUMP-HATING DEM PROSECUTORS N MUELLER RUSSIAN HOAX WHO R ATTACK DOGS FOR THEIR LOVELY CROOKED DEMS, complaining they didn’t get their RUSSIAN STYLE “JUSTICE.” Ur complaint dismissed.

    Finally another person calling to put McConnell on the hot seat for the Mess he’s enabled and the Monster he’s unchained !!! Where is he where is the press Track that man down put him on camera we want to see him squirm!!

    • @Relative Insanity Vote him out then! #ditchmitch it’s money well spent and I’ll be donating until Election Day btw I am NOT from KY

    • angela bluebird60 | February 13, 2020 at 8:39 PM | Reply

      @Belle Starr Exactly-and thank you! State Rep Charles Booker, among others, is running against McConnell in KY. Jaime Harrison is running against Graham in SC, and is within 2 points! We can volunteer for/donate to/support these and other quality candidates to regain genuine representation, regardless of which state we reside in. We must also join in the ongoing work to eliminate the poison intrusion of Big $ upon our elections/govt. It is the causative factor. It is the purview of the People to clean up, restore and reclaim our rightful place in our govt. of, for and by the People. The Move to Amend, Common Cause, Color of Change, American Promise, Trust Vote, just a few of the quality groups of everyday people we can check out/join with.

    • @Belle Starr Good job. We need more people like you in this day and age of election fraud and cheating. We need to show the GOP that election integrity is far too important and for the senate to just ignore the election security bills the democrats in the house have passed and brought to a senate vote. Bring those election security measures to the senate floor for a vote, instead of letting them sit on your desk turtle boy. We need to put the democrats in charge and strengthen our elections. Go vote 2020.

  19. Now we’re talkin’. Wipe that “I can do anything I want” look right off that tub o’ lard’s grill.

  20. where are the mass demonstrations? too many young people sitting on their duffs! Get out and demand the end of this Kakistocracy!

    • Liisa Varhalla | February 13, 2020 at 3:43 PM | Reply

      Let’s all get out there and protest this corrupt Government!
      Young, old, middle aged, seniors in high school and on social security!

      Speaking as a liberal Baby Boomer, our generation marched in the streets by the hundreds of thousands, to bring about an end to the Viet Nam war. Younger folks need to understand that whining about this crap on Twitter and social media is not going to do a damned bit of good. The Establishment doesn’t sit up and take notice until you come at them IN PERSON, with your teeth bared. Demonstrations, marches and organized boycotts are what get their attention. The internet they can just ignore.
