Hate to break the news to ya, kids, but yesterday your old pal, "Nogonads" Nadler, just took back his little invite for Bobby boy to come on over next week and speak to grown ups. Seems Nogonads forgot that the Republicans were also invited to the party, and Mr. 19th- Term No-Gonies was petrified that Bobby would spill the beans regarding the dossier and FISA warrants…..afraid of the truth? Nah, not Nogonads..he just wants to make sure he keeps his constituents stupid and obedient so that he gets voted into that 20th term….

I just look forward to when it is the Dems term.
I hope to see massive executive orders, countless nat'l emergencies, ridiculous pardons, no rule of law, constant filibustering, several nuclear options, overturning the last 3 supreme justices, overturn the tax bill, numerous unqualified confirmations of high offices, overstepping of State laws, obstructions, ignoring subpoenas – because I am 99.9% sure that Dems will help lower income & middle class americans not as repubs who further help the wealthy.

Get out and vote!!

Conald can't even keep his word for 24 hours, no wonder he's told 11,000 lies in 2 years. Scump is the only entity in the known Universe that can tell 8 lies in a 7 word sentence. Way to go MAGAts., climb off your sister and smell the covfefe!

Honestly, this is unprecedented! are the republican congressmen and women/senators so docile and stupid to really understand and see what is happening here? I thought they are guided by the constitution and not loyalty to the president, who by the way, is not above the law! This should no longer be a partisan issue. It should be a moral issue. If you pledged to serve the country and uphold the constitution, you should hold this president to account!!

Lawyers haven't done the USA any favors. Their mealy-mouthed attitude to prosecuting crime, their willingness to split judicial hairs over criminal vs non-criminal activity and above all their desire to inflate their own income by dragging out litigation to the greatest possible extent has handed the country to a new aristocracy of wealthy crime-bosses. One of them now sits in the White House and laughs at the so-called 'law' that can't touch him.

IF ALL FORMAL AND ACTIVE LAW ENFORCERS AGREED WITH THE CORRUPT AND CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST trump and his administration, WHY THE REPUBLICANS DONT DO THEIR JOB. WHAT CAN WE DO IF WE DO NOT HAVE THE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO FIGHT AGAINST THE CORRUPT WEALTHY FEW. I HOPE THE GOOD WEALTHY PEOPLE WITH COMMON SENSE
HELP THIS NATION REMOVE THESE cancers.

Let's imagine that Obama was in Trumps's situation during his presidency. What do you think the Republicans would have done then?

Keith Anthony

Exactly. The "nothing to see here", "no collusion" brigade are telling you that you are a fool and they can con you. Barr is a stooge for Trump paid for by the American taxpayer. McConnell, Graham and the rest would have lynched Obama for any single act of tax evasion, lies and idiocy committed by Trump, but they and Trump loyalists continue to screw the people.
Trump supporters say, "pass the vaseline". What are the rest of you doing?

Agreed that Mueller is "a total boy scout". So he's not going to defy a Presidential order, but equally once he's a private citizen he's not going to defy Congressional compulsion.

Obfuscating with lies and deception! If Barr actually lied, Congress could impeach him. Furthermore, they are holding him in contempt for following the law! The information they require of Barr is protected from distribution by law period!!! I mean in 1 week Mueller will be testifying, so why are the trying to make a mountain out of a mole-hill????!!! Because they are trying to sow the seeds of mistrust and division to try and stop the ongoing investigations into spying and the Real Russian collusion perpetrated by the democratic party.

Not so fast. Democrats are now realizing that Republicans have just as many questions for Mueller as Democrats, questions that Democrats don't want answered.

Impeachment is DOA. The sycophants in the Senate and the lack of support from the citizenry for this process make it a bad idea. 2020, any coherent adult.

"The Mueller Report is complete and total exoneration! Ergo we're gonna object to its unredaction!"
If you cannot see through that, I mean, you need to eat more fish or something. Your brain needs every help.

Can't this contempt of congress be issued as a warrant to the U.S. Marshalls to be enforced and if necessary drag him before a federal court for criminal proceedings?

Hopefully William Barr likes his new bedroom of a 6 x 10 room, he has sent many to this kind of room for much less. Just don't tell him it is not a cell….
