  1. Better presidents than D.J.T. by a long shot, literally were assassinated in broad daylight, so why is this American made nightmare still breathing, he threatens the whole world, Democracy, and hovers over America like a never-ending nightmare, with all the powers that be in America, and the world even, can nobody stop him???

  2. These findings regarding Donald Trump and his children, and their fellow conspirators, must be released to the citizens of America both online and in printed paper. It must be permanently recorded in American history books alongside the full records on January 6th 2021. These individuals must continue to be publicly outed, specifically drawing the line between what is, and what is not legal in the United States of America per her constitution. Reality, honesty, truth, law…. it all matters. It mattered yesterday, it matters today, and it will matter tomorrow. To those who want to change the USA from a Democracy into some other form of government, you have not changed the United States, her constitutional law, nor her form of governing… a Democracy. A clear line must be drawn between what is legal and what is not constitutionally legal, so that all future generations can clearly see where these Americans went horribly wrong, and so nobody in the future can claim their lies are truth… at least not legitimately. As citizens educated in the USA, they were taught as children in school how wrong their behaviour was, and that an attempted coup to force their will on the majority of the people goes against our nation's founding constitution.

  3. Now Jesus says give Caesar what's his, Trump says no I am going to inflate my taxes, oh and by the way I don't have to ask for forgiveness because I don't do anything wrong Trump even thinks he is above Jesus, Lord help him he is a weak man.

  4. When finally pinned down after exhausting the legal system with arduous stalling techniques . All they’ll get is a lot of 5 th Ammendment and I don’t recall. His accountant is going to fall on the sword.

  5. People are not looking at the business crime Trump has been engaged in from the beginning: Trump will most likely get away with the biggest financial crime he is most likely involved in because tracking it is nearly impossible. Trump has his accountants figure the cost to build a project many millions more than the actual cost and when the lenders make the final payments Trump pockets the difference tax free. This puts a severe financial burden for a Trump property to overcome but Trump doesn't mind because if it goes into bankruptcy he already got his money and doesn't have to pay it back. Example: Let’s say the cost to build the Taj Mahal is 900 million so Trumps accountants add an additional 100 million and make up fake payment dispersals to cover for the difference. Trump walks away with 100 million tax free and it is put in an off shore account. This is why Trump likes to build so many projects even though they lose money like golf courses. Trump inflates the cost of a golf course to skim off the difference. Trump uses the ill-gotten inflated construction costs to keep some projects afloat which is not much different than a Ponzi scheme. This explains why Trump takes so long to pay his bills, he only pays arrears when court stalling is exhausted and he has new money coming in to make required payments.

  6. If his old lawyer said he done it then all Donald has to is bring in the documents to prove he never done it, just speak to the business advisor Ivanka , that should clear it up . All private citizens get audited by the IRS surely the Trump org has already given in more than one set of figures to the taxman in the last 20 years.

  7. People need to ask why Obama, Pelosi, Schumer, Biden and the rest of the swamp made millions in office, while Trump actually lost money during his term. So, who's corrupt?

  8. Att James lock him up don,t let him get by with nothing he should have done been lock up if the Goverment Judges Att.Generals Law Enforcement F.B.I. an Military that took the Oath to do their job over this Riot they were injuries an deaths this people had family an want justice if it were their family they would want justice.

  9. Trump is a citizen after he left "office". Trump is nothing "more" than a former President as is Clinton, Bush, and Obama with "secret service protection"…..that is it…nothing more, nothing else!!!

  10. Don't all rich people inflate and deflate their assets according to how it helps them?
    Trump just does what rich people do and never are held accountable for.
    I'm glad they're going after him. I just wonder why it took so long and wonder when the rest of these crooked billionaires are ever going to be scrutinized.

  11. People living in an age of corruption are witty and slanderous; they know that there are other types of murder than by dagger or assault; they know that whatever is well said is believed. Fredrick Nietzsche

  12. Why does it take so long to bring down and put out of harms way a compulsive liar who's probably caused the death and harm to many over his time decrying mask wearing to his devoted followers at his mass rally's?

  13. 😂😂😂😂 yet ANOTHER story on Trump…what an obsession…Trump, Trump, Trump ! No news on Hunter Biden? No news on the derailed economy…energy prices…transportation issues….rampant crime in democratic cities…Americans left in Afghanistan…covid failures…🤮🤮. But always rhetoric about the orange man…empty reporting and the same old obsession…pitiful!!

  14. And he's angry because he knows he's not going to get away with it, I know Trump can fit in the Joker shoes, and still Batman locked up the Joker for his crimes. Trump thinks he can't, get locked up for his crime, priceless.

  15. Trump can be sued for the stuff he did before, while and after being in office after getting out of office. His protections drop once he is out of office. However It's still not up to the state of New York to decide of the allegations he will be sued for. It's in the Supreme Court's jurisdiction, not in the state with him. So the Supreme Court would dictate the records Trump would legally have to hand over. A president being sued after leaving office is nothing new and Two presidents were sued after being in office. The two presidents are Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon. So no person is immune, but I'm more tired of hearing what they can and can't do when both sides are saying stuff that's not true. So of the Supreme Court gives authority to sue Donald Trump and gather stuff from his business It's legal.

  16. Merrick Garland, this is what doing your job looks like. AG James, please show the Justice Department at the White house how it's done because it seems they've either lost their Constitutional nerve or don't remember how to do their job. You're doing great btw, AG James. Keep up the amazing work.

  17. Trump is still projecting. Whose mission is guided solely by political animus and desire to harass, intimidate, and retaliate against a private citizen whose viewed as a political opponent?" Apparently, Trump has forgotten that we all got to watch him display that very behavior every day on Twitter while he occupied the oval office. Every day he showed us his psyche on Twitter, and he describes himself perfectly in his argument. He's at it again accusing others of that which he is guilty. We've seen this before too … projection.
