    I'm so frustrated. There doesn't seem to be any way to get the corruption out of our government. But I think that is the base problem with all governments unless there is something in place to get rid of the criminals in charge.

    The Practice of Law is NOT a Political position. SPEAK UP to stop Lawless Attorneys protecting Russian Cut Outs in Trump WH!! Judge Sullivan @ Flynn sentencing summarized Flynn’s acts & Russian dealings against interests of democracy and America as treasonous. Arrest Attorneys defying Congress. These lying attorneys are in the same Flynn category. Ask Congress to turn over Don McGahn Abby Lowell Jay Sekulow and William Barr (aka the Coverup [AG] General IranContra Scandal) to the Am Bar Associations to revoke their licenses & charge them with Un-American Acts against Democracy. They All knowingly lied to Congress the American people and reshaped a false narrative to protect Trump & Republican - Russian money laundering and business deals to under cut our Rule of Laws and America’s democracy. They are all in violation of their oath to uphold the law as officers of justice and the Courts. Who can start a Petition to Congress to prosecute these attorneys. Note On this Committee Matt Gaetz under State Bar investigation -why is he allowed to participate in this Judiciary process. Gaetz also patron of Madam Tokyo Rose Yang [Money massage parlor] for Chinese businessmen’s pay for play Access to Trump & Republicans like Gaetz Florida. He should be suspended from Congress and this Community

      You can keep your doctor

      The mandate fine is only 90 dollars ( was really 700 to start)
      It will save Americans 2500 dollars a year.
      You didn't build that.
      Shovel ready jobs.
      I saved the auto industry.

      You're big on regurgitating liberal opinion but have zero facts

      Taxes can only be requested when it is shown ( with evidence) that criminal activity has taken place.
      What criminal activity has taken place?
      Give facts.
      Not opinions from liberal media

      Actually the Mueller and his team did the redactions as required by law- this law was passed by Democrats in the 90s and signed by Bill Clinton.
      Congress wants Barr to violate that law by releasing a full unredacted report and they know by law that he can't. Trump didn't do any of that and Congress can always pass a law to change that one.
      Why haven't they?
      Firing Mueller would not have stopped the investigation and Trump had constitutional authority to do so ( no obstruction on something you didn't do)
      Mueller was not a one man show and he worked for Rosenstein and not the other way around.
      Please tell me you know this.
      Now I will ask again because you just keep deflecting
      Where did Trump obstruct or impede Mueller during the investigation?

    • Dagamemasterable
      Dagamemasterable 4 months ago

      Lmao I literally answered that shit. First and foremost if your president wasn’t holding The mueller report and all the underlying evidence captive we would have the answer to your question. He obstructed just when he asked the guy investigating him to be fired, and even don Megan wouldn’t do it. So the only reason your mans is not indicted for obstruction is because his Megan saved him from himself by ignoring trumps incompetent request. If you actually paid attention again you would realize that his on fixer Michael Cohen implicates trump in inflation and deflation of his assets essential bank fraud. That’s reason enough for congress to ask for all those documents even before he become president. If taxes are requested by IRS “ they shall furnish the documents”. It’s not an option 😂 my question to you is if there is nothing to hide why all the smoke screens, unwarranted executive privileges, and endless stonewalling lmao. “ we are the most transparent administration” my ass 😂😂😂

      And no you idiot the clause is not just for the president of this country.
      You need to actually read it ( the whole thing) not just bits and pieces spoon fed you by liberal media.
      You are brainwashed.

    This is a complicated issue for Don McGahn. He has a loyalty required to who he served, Trump. But, he has a greater loyalty to the People of the United States of America. But, if he testifies before Congress against Trump for the MANY CRIMES that Trump has committed then Trump and the Republicans will destroy him, destroy his career, destroy his business, destroy his finances to break him and reduce him to poverty, and maybe even go further, to find a way to imprison him for TELLING the TRUTH.
    We live in very perilous times where honest people can be crucified and destroyed for being honest.
    Isn't the threat of the utter destruction of one's life if one is honest a serious extreme form of Obstruction of Justice?

      Tell you what.
      Show us all here.
      Where did Trump obstruct or impede Mueller during the investigation?
      He gave Mueller over 1 million documents.
      Never once ordered anyone to not talk to Mueller.
      Never used executive privilege to prevent Mueller from talking to people or seeing things.
      Gave Mueller his German bank records.
      Never destroyed hard drives or computers.
      Never deleted emails.
      So where is this obstruction?
      Just saying it does not make it factual

      Too funny!!
      Perhaps if you can show us where the tax cuts were not across the board that would be great.
      Obama sealed his college records and you never said a word.
      Oh that's right because that was ok.
      Provide some facts to back up your claim because I'm loving my tax cuts.
      My oldest who is a Paramedic is loving his tax cuts.
      My middle son who is a welder is loving his tax cuts
      And my youngest who produces audio visual effects is loving his tax cuts.
      You are being played by liberal media.
      Liberal media ( Everyone's refunds are down from the previous year) liberals scream..
      If you make more During the year due to the tax cuts then at the end of the year your refund will be less.
      Technically you're not supposed to get a refund.
      A refund means you paid too much tax during the year.
      You are supposed to work out your pay period deductions so at the end you don't owe or receive anything from the IRS.
      Please tell me you know this already and aren't just another brain dead liberal who only knows what the tv tells them to think.
      Good grief!!

      Johan, just because I think cadet bone spurs is a complete fraud without an ounce of courage or class doesn’t mean I’m a liberal. In fact, I like the tax cuts for the top 1% and corporations because I am a fellow village idiot. What’s your excuse?

    I love it that liberals are melting.
    Congress can't legally get Whitehouse officials to testify on legal Whitehouse duties.
    There was no obstruction.
    There was no collusion.
    Trump did NOT impede or obstruct Mueller during the course of the investigation.

      You can look it up but he never dodged the draft. He got reclassified after 1 deferment.
      Here is how it works.
      During the draft the military doctors are the ones that have deferments. They gave them for bad acne- flat feet - shin splints- bone spurs- boils and more. It's obvious you haven't a clue how it works and just listen to your TV in order to think.

    • Arthur Scott

      You do know that the IRS goes through his taxes right? You do know they have their own agents- investigators and court system right?
      The fact that the IRS has signed off on his taxes year after year shows he hasn't done anything illegal. Unless you are implying that the IRS is in cahoots with Trump to do illegal things.

      Bro, you follow a silverspoon fed coward who never had a fistfight his entire life, dodged the draft 5 times, makes fun of POWs, fucks hookers while his wife is pregnant, says he DOES NOT need to ask God for forgiveness because he never does anything wrong, goes against ALL teachings of Jesus Christ can sound funny and cool here on the web but when you look in the mirror tonight all you will see is a godless coward. And please dont go to church and fake being a Christian. Just be real about it.

      @Summer DaviesThis makes no sense. I'm stating a fact. Facts don't age like a "take" or opinion does. Mr. Collins does not have "the huge majority of American Patriots in [his] corner." Look at the polls. Republicans in congress have somewhere between 25%-30% approval. By definition that is not a majority, let alone a "huge majority of American Patriots."
