  2. Welcome to Donald Trump’s Banana Republic…

  3. A wise man once said, “Evil is powerless, if the good are unafraid”. What a time we chose to be born. SMH

      Thanks to Mr. Carlos Brown for making such a great point… even though Trump’s corruption and the R’s enabling have have escalated to amazing levels of decadence…. if our beloved ancestors fought so hard for the free world, then we too can surely find it in us somewhere…. to simply follow their great example.

  4. Trump is terrified that Flynn and Roger Stone won’t be able to do a long stretch in prison, and will decide to cut a deal instead, and reveal all of Trump’s crimes. Stone could corroborate Rick Gates’ testimony that Trump did in fact collude with WikiLeaks..

    In the video of a December 2015 dinner celebrating the 10th birthday of Putin’s propaganda  network RT at a  Moscow hotel, Putin and a host of Russian luminaries toasted the state-controlled news channel that U.S. intelligence calls a Kremlin mouthpiece. And next to Putin at the head table, in the seat of honor, was Michael Flynn, who would later become Trump’s national security adviser, was already advising Trump’s campaign when he was being paid $45,000 to speak at the gala.

    “It is not coincidence that Flynn was placed next to President Putin,” said Michael McFaul, former U.S. ambassador in Moscow “Flynn was considered a close Trump adviser. Why else would they want him there?”

    Flynn’s Moscow jaunt, like his oddly timed phone chats with the Russian ambassador, has been well reported. The video shows that the Dec. 10, 2015 dinner, was attended by a healthy serving of ex-russian spies, Putin’s cronies and oligarchs.

    Sergey Ivanov, then Putin’s chief of staff, sat directly across the table from Flynn. A former KGB general who at one point ran KGB operations in Africa, he has also served as Russian defense minister and deputy prime minister. Ivanov had been under U.S. and European sanctions for a year and a half by the date of the dinner.

    Next to Ivanov was Dmitry Peskov, Putin’s spokesman, but more importantly his de facto national security adviser, say U.S. officials. Flanking Putin on his right, two seats from Flynn, sat Alexey Gromov, Putin’s deputy chief of staff. U.S. intelligence considers Gromov to be Putin’s head propagandist. According to the January 6 Intelligence Community report on Russian interference in the U.S. election. He too was on U.S. and European sanctions the day of the dinner.

    After Putin got up to make his speech, his place at Flynn’s side was taken by Margarita Simonyan, RT’s editor-in-chief. A personal friend of Putin, she worked in one of his presidential campaigns before being chosen by Gromov to head RT. U.S. intelligence assessment of RT paints Simonyan as the lead person, along with Gromov, engaging in information warfare against U.S. policies. She is described as closely tied to, controlled by the Kremlin.

    Beyond the head table, Russia’s oligarchs filled many of the seats. Like Viktor Vekselberg, whose billions are in oil and aluminum and who is a business partner of Trump’s Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and the owner of the world’s largest collection of Faberge eggs.

    Flynn had already been a frequent guest on RT in the months prior to the dinner. When Putin finished his speech that night, Flynn was among the first to leap to his feet and offer a standing ovation.

  6. There isn’t an item on the presidential powers roster the orange fella won’t abuse.

  7. Trump would pardon ANY CROOK BEING a criminal himself

  8. Trump in the White House behaves like a criminal in the Big House – every weakness of the system will be exploited.

    • Al Kraus Because of his “mob boss” behavior and character, he will be the one to greatly weaken the power and importance of future presidencies.

    • @Joe Wynne Acquitted, and STILL President!!! Try not to cry in your beer.

    • @Al Kraus not for long, and the electoral has been rained in by alot of state’s.

    • @Al Kraus not for long…….🌊👊🌊
      KNOCK HIM OUT….AND LOCK HIM UP
      BOY IS HE GOING TO SPEND ALOT OF TIME IN JAIL, BET HE WILL BE BROKE BY THE TIME THE LAW IS DONE WITH HIM.
      🤗🤭🤗🤭🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊

    • @Al Kraus He’s just the biggest turn in the bucket with a whole lot of little turds bobbing around in the bucket with him. ALL turds have a use by date. Finally, their stink becomes so huge that even the arseholes that put them in the bucket want to flush them down. OR they just rot away with time. Time is the REAL victor agaist the poison that is presently occupying the white house

  9. But of course, since Stone is only one of the myriad of turds floating around in trump’s bigly sewer of a presidency.

  10. Poised? When did he seem like he wasn’t going to pardon his cronies. “Everybody shut up and you’ll be out as soon as I can make it happen”
    Does anyone think that Trump isn’t going to step down on his last day in office, after republicans charge him of every crime imaginable, and Mike Pence is going to pardon him (and his children) for everything before he leaves office, and then probably leaves the USA to build the Trump tower Moscow?
    At this point, why wouldn’t he?

    Judge Ms Jackson cap giving Stone a break in the begin and he cap test her and for justice and to show Trump and Barr your word mean sh*t too me ? she need to give his the maxumus sentance with no parole or pardon.

  12. Our forefathers are rolling in their graves…. perhaps we deserve what is coming to us. I guess we’ll all be forced to learn the hard way. Vote blue in November… our freedom is a stake. 💙🇺🇸

  13. Well done Republicans for doing what no enemy state could ever hope to do.

  14. SO “SCUM”DOES FLOAT TO THE TOP !

  15. LOCK HIM UP

  16. Just like there needs to be darkness before the dawn, there needs to be a Trump before a Bernie. 😀

    Welcome to naziland.

  19. About as predictable as the senate impeachment hearing

  20. Although I’m just a simple Aussie outsider looking in from abroad, I’ve always considered the Presidential Pardon a fundamental flaw within your democracy and prone to potential abuse. And with the current incumbent, that’s looking ever more likely.

    Good luck America – hopefully sanity prevails in November, if not sooner. 🙂

    • Nev Nuance I’d rather hear the truth from a million miles away than listen to a liar standing right next to me.
