    Truth does not filtered, edited or partly removed. Let us all welcome the ‘entire’ truth; proving to us — the USA is still a nation under law.

  • Gary Schinagel Post author

    Do people really listen to this?

  • grood yew Post author

    I realize everyone posting on here is probably a Democrat, but I consider myself American first. Yes that means I'm proud of this country. I may not like certain President Democrat or Republicans, I do stand for the National Anthem, I do trust in the constitution of our country and believe in God. (If that offends half of you okay, I can live with that.) One thing I think most Americans are feeling is dissatisfied with the way the fighting is going on over this issue, the issue of Russian collusion is a dead issue, Now it seems the Democrat party wants to keep this going no matter what. Trust me most of us Americans don't like this division within our government. We the people want to see this resolved and not dragged out any longer. This division is hurting us more than the premises of criminal activity. Face the facts if you dont have anything after 2 years of investigation let it go and move on.

    Flynn is cooperating with investigators in other cases. Come Maddow, show some journalist skill

    At some point if I were Trumps Defense Team…I for one would NOT be putting MY A$$ in jail behind anyone as Stupid as Donald Trump…SERIOUSLY, someone who has lost over 1.5 BILLION Dollars in business..(AKA Russian LOANS). That is INSANE.

  • Timothy Bull Post author

    I expect they will defy the federal judge. Just one more line to cross. No big deal if you’re Donald Trump. The stakes are high so expect extreme measures. Trump is surrounded by people trying to cover up the plot against the USA this is gonna get uglier

  • David Sleeman Post author

    First if there is no crime none of the report should be made public! Second it is against US law to release information on an ongoing investigation!! Obviously a Lefty Judge blinded by his hate for the President

  • india rose Post author

    Replace every Republican! The Republicans put Trump in the white house. The Republicans continue to PROTECT Trump. Every Republican is responsible for Trump!

    IF I WERE THE JUDGE, I WOULD ONLY GIVE THEM 4 HOURS TO PROVIDE THE UNREDACTED VERSION ~ OPEN IT UP IN ADOBE ACROBAT, UNREDACT IT, SAVE IT AND SEND (5 minutes at the most) ~ I'm so sick and tired of republicans having no shame covering and defending this corrupt president. I hope all republicans lose their seats. They don't deserve to call themselves American. We must put an end to Republicans. Their outdated, corrupt and a bunch of criminal narcissist! America needs to be America again! ~ KEEP ON VOTING BLUE

    By law Barr didn't have to release anything. Flynn was being spied on by Obama in 2015. They were not even getting warrants. Many were spied on. It will come out soon.

    why give them 2 weeks? Judge should have given them 24 hours

  • Joel McCoy Post author

    Judges can adjudicate. The US Attorney Generals' power blanches and swoons in the face of a Court order from a federal judge or a subpoena from a Committee of Congress. Attorneys General can only request that a judge issue such orders. The courts have pants on. Congress only has the option of putting them on if enough of them can agree to it.

  • Cane Srbljanovic Post author

    Oh… "Rachel Maddow show" :))))) Rachel is A show herself… A shitshow to be precise.
    I'm surprised she's still hanging around and is not institutionalized somewhere where heavy prescription medication is abundant and where her condition can be at least controlled if it's not being curable as it appears not to be.
    She descendent into madness on that wonderful night in Nov 2016 and she keeps slipping into the darkness since.
    It's incredible that she persisted till now… there's that cockroach-like persistence quality about her that's just impressive.
    And it's entertaining to watch.

  • David Walker Post author

    Why give 2 weeks to un-redact, this can be done in 2 days. It is well known that the subpoenas will be ignored, should be ready to move to the next step within hours of missed deadlines. All these delays are the WH gameplan,

    I don't know what they did. But, I do know that at the time they did it there wouldn't be any possible thing they could do that could come close to what Trump is doing now…

    Trump has betrayed the flag that he has a huggin fetish for… Guilty conscience is likely why he always hugged flagged..
    Maybe they Shot someone on fifth ave , or something .. Trump's already declared that not a crime from im..

    Omgosh, Loretta Lynchs testimony before Congress was released today. She was under oath and said she did not tell James Comey to call the email investigation a matter. COMEY testified under oath Loretta did say it. One of them is lieing. Oh Rachel what if it is Comey? You have been spreading lies.

  • Beeman Minnesota Post author

    Rachael MADCOW!! The judge does not want to sentence a innocent man(Flynn), that's the only reason the judge want it released. Many are going to jail and it's not Trump or anyone else in his circle, now lefties better hide. THE BOOMERANG EFFECT IS COMMING!!

    Congrats idiots…

  • J K Post author

    There is no executive privilege for a Special Council's report! By definition! Sure Trump can claim EP for Mcgahn. He worked in the White House. But Mueller's report is a report on Trump! There is no way there is any executive right to privilege. It didn't involve ANY decisions made by the White House.

  • Ardyn Bay Post author

    The flynn case shows a Israelly gate. A trade of a UN vote for Israel, by Russia, in exchange for US favors on sanctions. Treason.

  • Ken R.B. Post author

    Trump is ignoring inquiries from the co equal branch of government, the house of representatives. Next step, Trump ignores the 3rd co equal branch of government, the judiciary. Didn't he run as a law and order candidate? We have the real enemy of the people in the whitehouse, and he must be stopped. Why do I think that Trump will ignore the judiciary? Because he is already ignoring the court ruling to re unite immigrant children, separated from their mothers.

  • TexanTube Post author

    Are they going to defy a federal judge's direct order? Yeah, most likely. Which is the definition of obstruction of justice, no matter what that orange hooligan says.

    Rachel Madcow needs to have a drink and relax, maybe find someone deaf, dumb and blind to give her some love and come back to the real world.

  • Rufus Leakin Post author

    Just heard MSNBC pays Rachel Maddow $7 mil a year. The average salary for a garbage truck driver is $40,000. Why is delivering garbage worth 175 times more than hauling it away?

  • Sargent Stony Post author

    Democrats are as weak as the republicans are corrupt.

    I’m sorry for all the people who have everything for this country
    to hear these guys just say “we don’t recognize Congress’s subpoenas. Even after 4 years of Benghazi.

    Weak and corrupt! The best government money can buy!

    Congrats Vladdy!

    This is what stage four of Trump Derangement Syndrome looks and sounds like. Crazy, demented, and grasping at the last straws of paranoia

    A few good men and women, standing up for what's right for our country, makes all the difference.
    Mandating time limits on what has to be done – releasing the entire Report – is also of key importance.

    Are American taxpayers paying for Trump’s lawyers?? Where is the money coming from?

  • Marcella Jaynes Post author

    You know what blows me away? For OVER TWO YEARS, you guys who watch MSM (rather than do your own research & be a critical thinker, Lord forbid) have been LIED to. You were PROMISED there was evidence of collusion, or don’t you remember? Since then, it’s ALWAYS “something” that includes A LOT of “maybe’s – what if’s – possibly’s – looks like’s” from Maddow, yet here you are, STILL buying into the B.S. when WHO was it that had MILLIONS of dollars from RUSSIA, paid to their Family Foundation? And WHO was paid $500,000.00 from a Kremlin Bank, just to talk for 1 hour? WHO were ALL involved in 20% of our Uranium to Russia??? Hint: Not Trump!

  • KALDOUT WNZ Post author

    Every single day, one after the other, cover ups, pay offs, LIES , and efforts to suppress evidence and obstruct justice keeps being revealed. Against who? Against #45 and his appointees. Yet their supporters REFUSE to accept the overwhelming reality of this grossly corrupt administration. Thanks Rachel.

    When courts accept BRIBE of around £35,000.00 to deliver prescribed Judgement; that is WRONG

  • Leonard NII BOYE Mettle Post author

    When courts like BROMLEY COUNTY COURT is run by untrained officials that do not understand that a different Postcode implies a different location; that is disgraceful. What are they being paid for?

    When in this stone age, Police officers cannot spend time to access the Land Registry documents to determine whom is the legal Proprietor of a property they are attending and only depend on hear say from neibors; that is not right.

  • Andre Newcomb Post author

    Flynn's 'Hail Mary' is trying a desperation 'sharing of evidence' to set up an appeal. Could backfire . . . and treason and bribery charges subsequently introduced. It's that serious.
