    is there nothing illegal that the trump administration didn't stoop to? spying on journalists and position leaders (democrats) is what they do in places like China and Russia and Venezuela and all the other dictatorships. This needs to be investigated and people CHARGED AND PROSECUTED FOR WHAT THEY DID. Like that crook Barr.

    President Fascist Herr Trump and his Texas Three Stooges enablers were willing pawns ♟ of Vlad Putin, their Master. Using Putin’s Evil Satanic bag of tricks they were turning America into a Russian satellite police state. Thanks be to God they failed ... miserably. As they attempt to rewrite history may God be their judge and may they fail at that too. 🇺🇸 God Bless the Biden Administration 🇺🇸!

    Lefties, your current level of hysteria suggests you are challenged to come to terms with your poor choices along with onset fear of conservatives regaining control. It would make for great comedy if not such a sad statement on the human condition. Tick tock, the pendulum swings.

    Telling isn't it that lefties want an investigation of why a POTUS was seeking out information leakers when the potentially illegal FISA warrant matter has yet to be settled? If not for double standards...

    On the Republican's Latest Move to Protect Trump @Sharon, McConnell has been long championing and utilizing a strategy of deception and divisiveness in his quest to garner and retain power. While all influential politicians understand that the power is to be used to benefit their constituents, Republicans like Trump, McConnell and numerous others give just the minimum lip service to really using that power for the many of us. Instead that power is used to only benefit a select few. In this era far too many of our fellow citizens are too suspectible to the deceptive and divisive propaganda McConnell, Trump and their ilk spew. The Republicans have adopted the tactic of the Big Lie from time to time for decades but since Trump it's use has stepped up considerably. Consider: The Richard "I am not a crook" Nixon administration's Waregate Coverup. The scandal stemmed from the Nixon administration's continuous attempts to cover up its involvement in the June 17, 1972 break-in of the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Washington, D.C. Watergate Office Building Not only Reagan's Iran Contra Scandal but also the investigation, indictment, or conviction of over 138 administration officials, the largest number for any president in American history up until then. Perhaps you even remember George W Bush's Myth about Weapons of Mass Destruction? Besides the 2016 Election Collusion with Russia, the "Quid Pro Quo Ukraine Travesty, the horrendous bungling of COVID Scandal, and Big Lie about 2020 Election Fraud, we are still finding plenty of the oozing slime left by Trump. McConnell is likely actually beyond terrified how those of the public with open eyes, clear minds and rational thought will view Republicans for many years to come. On Causes, @Sharon wrote: Today, The UK-based Guardian along with multiple other news outlets reported on the newest Republican move to protect Trump. This keeps a couple of questions alive for me: (1) What do they know and when did they know it; and (2) Why are they blocking investigations into Trump if they really believe there’s nothing to find? https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jun/16/senate-republicans-trump-justice-department-democrats-data Read @Sharon’s full comment: https://www.causes.com/comments/1477401

    Even though Republicans will not accept the results, history will.

    Trump should be punished for abusing his power in this way and we need to make sure this kind of thing doesn’t happen again. There need to be serious consequences and repercussions for doing something like this.

    My problem over the past 4 years is not with republicans, per se. It is with Mr. Trump and how he made several Federal departments work for HIM, versus US. This is an example. I am appalled that the Republican party can put all their marbles in the pot with Trump! There are other, less criminal and narcissistic folks who can head that party. To go to bed with Trump, to me, shows the moral side that republicans are choosing.

    I'm more concerned about the processing of immigrants. If we were better equipped to process folks who come across the boarder or those applying for citizenship/green cards, we might not have the issue as it is at the border. I am certainly NOT for open borders. But, i think there has to be better ways to process folks (and especially children). Since many are coming from countries south of Mexico, a joint effort with Mexico to stop folks at that point would be a far better option then money spent on walls.

    Plus is this still happening? We should give it the same amount of attention as Hillary got. Trump needs to spend 11 hours straight in front of Congress.

    Today, The UK-based Guardian along with multiple other news outlets reported on the newest Republican move to protect Trump. This keeps a couple of questions alive for me: (1) What do they know and when did they know it; and (2) Why are they blocking investigations into Trump if they really believe there’s nothing to find? “Top Republicans are moving to block a Senate inquiry into the Trump justice department’s secret seizure of data from Democrats to hunt down leaks of classified information, fearing a close investigation could damage the former president. Trump, who is facing a mounting crisis of legal problems and political criticism, still wields huge power among Republicans, and has hinted recently at a return run for the White House. Related: A different America: how Republicans hold near total control in 23 US states In fiery remarks, the Republican Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell, criticized the rapidly expanding congressional inquiries as unnecessary and accused Democrats of embarking on “politically motivated investigations”. “I am confident that the existing inquiry will uncover the truth,” said McConnell. “There is no need for a partisan circus here in Congress.” The forceful pushback from McConnell shows his alarm about the latest aggressive move by Democrats to engage in retrospective oversight that could expose Trump for misusing the vast power of the federal government to pursue his political enemies. It also means Republicans are certain to lock arms to block subpoenas against Trump justice department officials, including former attorneys general Bill Barr and Jeff Sessions. Democrats need at least one Republican member for subpoenas because of the even split between Democrats and Republicans on the panel.” https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jun/16/senate-republicans-trump-justice-department-democrats-data

    Anyone involved in the DOJ violating the rights of American citizens, Journalists, and Democrats in Congress by checking their private emails without a warrant must be prosecuted. This was just another way the Republicans are trying to take down our Democracy. Since Trump still has a stranglehold on the GOP we can't let the GOP have a stranglehold on our Democracy! I once did an in-depth study of Hitler, and this is something he did while in control. It's sad to say that Trump is a modern day Nazi, and if this is what the GOP want to follow, we can't have them leading States or this Country in any capacity!!!

    The Trump DOJ’s behavior is wrong in multiple ways. First, it routinely violated the separation of government interests and the personal interests of the White House. Second, it routinely violated the separation of powers between the Legislative and Congressional branches. Third, it attempted to hide its activity and the people who ran it continue to lie about their actions and intentions. It is essential for the ongoing protection of the democracy that these activities be thoroughly investigated and all wrongful parties be harshly punished so as to reaffirm the precedent that such behavior is not tolerated in the United States. We are not a banana republic, and abuse of power cannot be allowed.

    Trump must pay a price for the blatant actions he took to discredit our constitution. His attempt to remain president via lies,threats and intimidation must be rewarded with a lengthy prison sentence.
