    Donald Trump is a lifelong career criminal and only fifteen minutes of honest research would reveal that to anyone who cares! Everyone reading this has the internet at their fingertips, just like I do - so, they are without excuse! If you don't know that Trump is a criminal, it is because you don't care that he is a criminal!

        How many Trump cronies are in jail or awaiting sentencing? Nothing-burger huh? Fake News huh?

        Just wait, the depth of Trumps corruption is only beginning to be discovered. Democrats are playing three dimensional chess and the Republicans are playing checkers.

The Democratic Party has done nothing to better the country since the man got elected. Cost us people money on this wild goose chase. Help tear country further apart. Not him.

      And anyone NOT KNOWING that the democrats are trying to over turn the 2016 presidential election is a bona fide imbecile. All one has to do is use the computer or smart phone at their fingertips.
      They would also learn that their losing candidate belongs to the most disgraced and corrupt family in American Politics. Why would anyone back a former Impeached President's, wife? They and the people who voted for her must have an IQ of a democ...a rock, or maybe a marionette to be that stupid.

      Oh I'm sorry, it's not polite to call people derogatory names, but it's really baffling as to how people though this woman, who's protected her husband of sexual assaults, rapes, adultery, having sex with minors, lying with his hand on the bible to God, his Country, to the entire world AND being Impeached? AND YOU THOUGHT SHE WAS A GOOD CANDIDATE????

The Democrats aren’t under investigation for corruption dishonesty and lawlessness. Trump is. How many of trumps former campaign members are in prison for their corruption dishonesty and lawlessness? How many trump associates are under investigation for their corruption dishonesty and lawlessness?

      How about asking why the POS President has his personal attorney running around the world trying to get other countries to "just state" that you're investigating the Bidens.

      Yea, yea, I know. But, but, Whatabout..Hillary..Obama..Hunter Biden.

      How about instead we focus on the current issue. A President who is corrupt, lies and has zero respect for the rule of law. How about all the "best people" of his sitting in prison or awaiting trial.

Donald Trump Quoted In People Magazine 1998:

“If I were to run, I’d run as a republican, they’re the dumbest group of voters in the country. They believe anything on FOX News. I could lie, & they’d still eat it up. I bet my numbers would be terrific.”

I'm also tired of hearing GOP whine about Joe and Hunter.
OK, so TRE45ON got caught asking for a Ukrainian investigation announcement (because he is known for cracking down on corruption, right?). That didn't work and it was NOT the proper way to investigate the Bidens in the first place.
So, in the meantime, has TRE45ON bothered to initiate that investigation via the proper channels. Is the FBI investigating that corruption today?
I didn't think so.
