  1. "I, Donald J t'rump, do solemnly swear to defend the Constitution and protect America from all threats foreign and domestic."

    😃😄😂😃😄😂😃😄😂😃😄😂😃😄😂😃😄😂😃😄😂😃😄😂😃😄😂

  2. General Motors are "gone!" ~ Silicon Valley is "gone!" ~ Apple is "gone!" ~ The World Peace is "gone!" ~ Trump "resides!" for "Moscow" ~ Sleep well and pray for Mercy

  3. The traitor hasn't acknowledged that hostile foreign interference, because he was wilfully complicit in it.

  4. The left and the right are hopelessly divided.

    Whatever opinion you state in comments, someone will attack you.

  5. I would still like to know why did eight Republican go to Mother Russia on the 4 of July 2018. Then again what is Rudy doing in the Ukraine last summer ?

  6. SIlence is betrayal, for all republicans who don't have a spine to stand up for the facts and the rule of law, you guys are truly betraying the people and your country.

  7. I think standing on the world stage saying Russia if your listening help me…and also saying he believes Putin over his own intelligence agencies is TREASON !!!

  8. Drumpf is a criminal conspirator, who was wilfully complicit in Russia's attack on America's democratic autonomy.

  9. Trump would NEVER have been President if the Russians hadn't helped him. He plans on using the same ** again. ILLIGITIMATE!

  10. We live in strange times! Where bad is celebrated & vice versa. Criminality, corruption, treason & treachery are rewarded & celebrated! Trump has perverted America!

  11. We already know what Russia did. They paid about $100,000 for some facebook ads. Totally no effect on the election. Game over Dirty Dems. Check mate.

  12. IMPEACH THE MOTHER FKER PELOSI
    Impeach and incarcerate the treasonous LITTLE MUSHROOM DK PUSSYGRABBER drumpf

  13. How can the president acknowledge something that either didn't happen or he nothing about? Obama said the Russians interfered when he was president but he did nothing about it.

  14. He's a crook, a liar and a traitor to this country. Not to mention, the worst president ever! Total hack! Vote him out so he can be prosecuted! 👍

  15. Don't forget, it's not just Russia interfering in our democracy. Our government needs to invest in effective cyber defense.

  16. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸if you read the book and watch the testimony it is concerning. We should be focused on Russia right now. We now know Russia caused this mess. Let’s clean it up. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  17. It's kind of weird that I voted for a Democrat in Texas and yet I'm getting a lot of mail from the RNC like I voted RepubliKKKan!!

  18. Trump will never surrender his stupidity. Once Trump is stuck on stupid he can't let it go it's a sign of weakness.

  19. We need to bring back the proper definition of treason. Trump committed multiple acts of treason, willingly endangering our country.

  20. Chump needs to cheat again to win, so he'll never turn on putin. He's met with Putin 6 X, had 10 phone calls, 4 letters, but NEVER met with Mueller.

  21. Why did Mueller bring charges against 13 Russians for a suspected troll farm, yet in the current court case hasn't present any evidence against the 13 Russians to prove their case? The judge in the case is contemplating holding the DOJ in contempt of court…

  22. You people are a mess LOL! Trump won because the country wanted ANYTHING but Hillary even a bum off the streets could have won against Hillary. The people got sick of the establishment. Why? Because of stupid $h_t like this! LOL! Keep it up and you will cause your own downfall….again!

    I stopped watching politics because of the childish bias on both sides, it is disgusting! I've been watching recently only because of the possible war with Iran. And now I'm seeing this BS…it has not changed since the Bush Sr. and Clinton days! Same ole childish $sh_t! ALL MSM are ONLY for entertainment. Truth and logic have no relevancy on MSM. And you people actually have the nerve to accuse each other of lacking moral values or a spine etc etc…LOL!!! None of you are worth a $h_t … none of you who believe MSNBC or CNN or FOX is telling you the truth! None of you. The people who care about truth in America have no channel to listen to, there is no money to be made in Truth. You are going to be the very reason for your loss in 2020 just like you did in 2016. And you'll still cry and whine like babies trying to blame it on someone else but yourselves.

    UGH! Now I remember why I don't pay attention to politics, it is too stupid and childish! Some people find it entertaining, and maybe I did too when I was 25, but after I grew up….OMG! I HATE this crap!

    PEACE!

  23. Proven bogus, Commander in Cheat fully intends to do it again.
    Calling all techies! Counteract the enemy tactics! This is your chance to serve your country without toting a gun. How about it, fellow Americans? Step up, fight fire with fire, and take our country BACK from the biggest crook to land in the WH. 🖱⌨

  24. what russia did they hav done in every election since the 50,s it only a big deal because they tried to use it to get trump …and failed

    maybe when we stay out of there elections they stay out of ours

  25. Hi Chris.👋☺.
    Exceptional reporting, Chris.👍☺👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏.
    Keep on digging, Chris.👍.
    👉👉Patience democrats, patience.👍.

  26. tRump idolizes Putin & wants people to stand at attention like they do for Kim Jong Un…sides with Bin Salman on khashoggi murder…adding fuel & stoking the fires relating to the White Supremacists, White Nationalists, Half-Witted Haters, Chaos Creators, Havoc Harborers, Gullible Goofs, those lacking Common Sense & Logic, etc., allowing tRump to waste taxpayers dollars & not pay back his over $7 million for his inauguration, Interior Secretary pulling $2.45 Million from the Operating Fund for other areas now void of finances when the total for 7/4/19 tRump's tanking of America cost roughly $5.4 Million, costing taxpayers over 340 Million for Golf: https://www.forbes.com/sites/chuckjones/2019/07/10/trumps-golf-trips-could-cost-taxpayers-over-340-million/#5e4e01b228aa,
    and more…so this is the intelligence of his Base-less wonders!

  27. the US is virtually giving up to the Russians offering this country on a platter to a hostile foreign power. Hope Americans who voted for the current wh 'occupant' enjoy being ruled from Moscow.

  28. THANK YOU ROBERT MUELLER for your service to America! I hope this is the last time he has to perform in public. I think Nancy will wait too long… and then….
    "Its too close to the election"

  29. Mueller 's testimony was a DEBACLE. Dems in DISARAY! They obviously don't care about improving the life of Americans.

  30. Trump is fu**ing with the 😈 …even if he gave Putin a 55million $ penthouse apt. In that Moscow tower…that would never be enough for them…hes only digging his grave..automousaly and postamously…

  31. McConnell keeps blocking legislation to fund the bolstering of Cyber-attack defenses. WHY? Essentially the GOP is counting on a repeat Russian disruption in the 2020 elections that put them in power in 2016. That’s why. A shift to a truly authoritative regime in the WH is in the making, no question.

A shift to a truly authoritative regime in the WH is in the making, no question.

  33. Trump doesn't have to acknowledge the threat. His supporters in the House and Senate will defend his unpatriotic lawlessness. So will the deluded mass of citizens. Why?

  34. I don't suppose there was any collusion over the gerrymandering of political districts in Florida and elsewhere, Cambridge Analytica, Steve Bannon; (13 russians with no evidence of or public scrutiny of specific websites made public or troll farms) Russia is miniscule in comparison and is nothing but hysteria to keep at the top of the headlines while everything else is silently scooted behind underfoot, what's next, the voting machines are made in China?

  35. Obama and Dems knew before the election in 2016, did nothing to stop it wanting to use it against Trump……….

  36. Trump will always call it a HOAX because he wants them to hack our computer system again so Trump can win.

  37. What did the Russians do to us? No votes were tampered with or changed. People made their choice and rejected Hillary Clinton for president. The people did that, not the Russians. The indictment of Russian state actors for FaceBook ads and fake rallies who will never be tried proves nothing. It was done in an attempt to further the narrative of the investigation.

  38. The reason why President Donald Trump hasn't acknowledged that the Russians were involved, is because President Donald Trump was involved himself, and believe it or not standing above the White House and the American flag is an invisible Russian flag. 😠🇷🇺🇺🇸

  39. And Obama hasn't apologized for allowing it to happen. As a matter of fact, the lefties seem to be silent about the fact that Obozo was the President when ALL this crap went down.

  40. Trump owe$$ a lot of favors to his frenemy lenders and it's costing U.S….the Whitehouse ain't for sale to highest bidder

  41. I KNOW WHICH IS WORSE! DO REPUGS? NO THEY DON'T. WELCOMING RUSSIAN HACKERS TO HACK IS WORSE THAN RUSSIANS ACTUALLY HACKING !!!!!! TREASON!!!
