I can’t believe this nightmare has been allowed to go on this long.

Republicans need to step up and stop this madness.

34. Every day I keep thinking I'll wake up

and the clouds will have lifted and the nightmare bizarre world I've inhabited in my dreams will be over. And every day it's an even greater and more horrific nightmare, made worse by the fact that so many others feel the same way yet no one seems able to stop it.

I told my husband I feel like Veruca Salt in the original Willy Wonka movie. I want Agent Orange out NOW, before things are irrevocably ruined and, at this point, I really don't care how. Like Veruca sings, "I don't care how, I want it NOW!!!" Childish and immature, I know, but desperate times bring desperate feelings.

4. Don't count your chickens before they hatch, stupid.

Trump might want to hold off until the report is finished before boasting of his premature expectations. That would at least allow Barr enough time to fudge Another conveniently tell-all summary that says everything Trump dictated to him.

24. according to Rachel it looked like they

 

refused to give up their right to keep information classified. Trump had to confer upon Barr the right to declassify everything he chooses. Bye bye sources and methods.

The special investigator will report directly to Barr so we can expect Barr to spin a mountain of bullshit.

These people are evil, they have brought guns to the gun fight, Democrats better bring big guns too.

I am going to bite my tongue and not say any more.

38. Barr's place in history is at stake.

He made sure of that when he made his deal with the orange devil. Consequently he's "all in" - to borrow a poker term - in Trump's and the GOP's coup to establish a dictatorship within the U.S. government. I have the sneaky feeling we may have seen the last presidential election in the U.S.

They had him under surveillance for a long time. They know exactly what he is. In my mind it is as if Putin was asking for all the intelligence we had on him.

Are there no patriots involved with the investigation that will come forward ???

If not, they are all totally useless !!!

49. He is a lifelong Republican

he will never say a single word. I do not think he'll ever testify or if he does, he'll refuse to answer most questions.

Party over country was the first thought I had when it was announced that he had been appointed.

I'd love to be wrong about this, but it doesn't look like he cares. At. All.

50. It's probably that. Or some archaic sense of self righteousness that

he thinks puts him above everything. While the fascists become more entrenched, consolidate more power and purge the "infidels" from government. But hey, he gets to keep what he sees as his "integrity" while the republic crumbles. So I guess it's a wash.

21. Trump Is Trying Hard To Prove Pelosi Right

This is exactly how a cover up takes place. Release everything favorable to Trump and leave everything classified that looks bad. Plus, I doubt Barr has the skill set to do this. This is just like Nixon and his edited transcripts.

46. Without Checks And Balances

A President's power is unlimited.

He wants a wall and Congress won't give him the money he just shifts it from the Defense Department to a branch of DHS. His tariffs are bankrupting farmers so he uses the money from the tariffs to pay $15 billion cash to the distressed farmers and buy their vote. Neither was voted on in Congress so it is hard to see how any of this is legal. But unless Congress is willing to check this power it will happen and this we can lay at the feet of Mitch McConnell and Russian money. Putin is getting a lot of bang for the buck.

Many Dems are veterans and will exercise their second amendment rights in a massive march on dump where-ever he is..

Which ever golf course he chooses to hide.

On this Memorial Day, this veteran will fight for the values our brothers and sisters died to defend.

This orange ass would pardon a war criminal who pissed on dead enemy fighters.

They did not teach us that in MY Marine Corps!

why did the so-called "Deep State" work so hard to damage Trump's main opponent? Why did they plan it so that DNC emails would be stolen and dumped? Seems like if there was truly a plot to get Trump they would have worked it so that he wouldn't get elected in the first place. Don't you think?
