    it’ll be an interesting day to see Barr and Mnuchin both arrested for contempt of Congress
    :edit: it’s also refreshing to see actual Q&A. it’s sad that this is unusual.

    • David Murphy says:

      What happened to Hillary for lying to Congress oh wait nothing…. Or Nancys quote “holding the truth from congress”hmmm I wonder who that sounds like again hmmm Hillary and bashing and smashing her phone. Where is the obstruction with her??? hmmmm hypocrites in office and nothing will happen just like Hillary enjoy the fire. 🙂 Barr learned from Hillary and did what she did.

    • Juan Ramirez says:

      I loved K. Harris interviewing him. Barr was hemming and hawing, and finally admitted he was covering for Trump. Barr has no integrity, and does not represent the American people. He only represents Trump. In 2020, ten million+ then last time will be voting against Trump. That’s when we will send all these treacherous people to prison for a long, long time. Presidents will learn that they are not above the law. You can’t gain your office through illegal means and then use that same office to protect your illegally gotten Presidency. If Trump isn’t guilty then why all the lying and subterfuge? I know BS and that’s anything Trump says and does!
      Give up on Hillary. She didn’t win. She should have, but she’s no longer relevant. They won’t give up the traitorous confederacy losing, Hitler losing and now Hillary.

  2. Frank Dillard says:

    There is a bright side though, on a daily basis, Trump resets the statute of limitations on Obstruction of Justice.

    • George Stone says:

      Look on your stupid side, Hillary can still be indicted for Destroying 33,000 subpoenaed by CONGRESS EMAILS. That is WHY DEM’S ARE SCARED OF BILL BARR!!!

    • Al Curie says:

      +George Stone Hillary is a private citizen, she is not the democratic party. And who exactly is scared of transparent stooge bill barr? The guy will be a disgraced footnote in history.

    • Deplorable Mike says:

      +Stacy Thompson What is his crime? Beating Hillary and the Democratic Socialist party? Name the crime. Why are you Socialist withholding evidence and obstructing justice? Schiff and Pelosi said they had evidence but didn’t give it to Mueller. Again, why are you Democratic Socialist party members protecting Trump and hiding evidence?

  3. Vinnie Wilson-Torbert says:

    Do SOMETHING, Enough Talk, Get Busy. Why is barr and trump still in the people house and making it more of a swamp house? This is congress is disgraceful.
    VOTE BLUE 2020

  4. Karen Bourque says:

    Mitch McConnell ….HAS TO GO!! Vote him out in 2020!!

    • D Personal says:

      MSNBC promotes Skeletor.

    • Gens Sdeo says:

      The reporters on this site need to try harder Don Lemon on CNN recently won worst journalist of the year. Maybe next year the reporters on this site will have better luck after they lose millions of dollars in the suit filed against them for smearing the 16 year old boy for standing on a step.

    • Notcha Grandpa says:

      Karen Bourque I’d say Mitch losses in Kentucky about the same time Calipornia votes out all it’s Democratic leaders and replaces them with extreme right wing Republicans

    • johnny Connors says:

      Don’t get how he’s still a thing

  5. 1962sherrynurse says:

    Thank You Ms. Pelosi, keep up the good fight!

  6. Johnny Punish says:

    I have NO PATH to vote for CRIMINALS LIARS and CONTEMPTOUS POLTICIANS. We need LEADERS not crooks

    • just me says:

      Then vote for Trump and you will get it.

    • Marie Smith says:

      +Raptor One, If you’re renaming our political parties then it would be the Republican Nationalist Party.

    • ryvr madduck says:

      Trump has been accused based upon that fake, phony dossier. Don’t you understand the depths to which Hillary went to unseat Trump in collusion with the FBI? The dossier was the FBI’s “insurance policy.”

  7. Megabyte2k4 says:

    Did…did Mrs. Pelocy just call Mitch the B#$&@ the Grim Reaper? o.O? LOL

    But, no seriously…Pelocy, you and your guys have GOT to do something about them…NOW!

    • cary ulmer says:

      Megabyte2k4 Yes she did. Wasn’t he also known as “the turtle”?

    • Sabine Katsavrias says:

      mitch refered to himself as the grim reaper… i guess he thought it painted a strong figure of himself. We all know hes realy just a slime encrusted turtle blocking the drainage hole in the swamp.

    • Dale Cox says:

      An ugly old turtle!

    • Barb Skrypek says:

      Megabyte2k4 – Mitch McConnell called himself the Grim Reaper! He said if tRump and the Republicans don’t win in 2020 he’ll become the Grim Reaper and destroy any bill the Democrats want to put forward, like healthcare, the environment, climate change, abuse against women, etc. He’s evil and must be voted out!

  8. SICKFREDO says:

    Keep allowing corporations to lobby and fund politicians and it will get worse, it should be illegal!

    • MrDeedsly says:

      +Joe Autry Just like how you O.D.S. Obama derangement syndrome?

    • Funk Obama says:

      +kalo924 manybe you should actually research and critically think! trump is draining the swamp from the treason, corrupt etc……Or is that what you want? yt or google the secret covenant……that is just a little of the big picture…..

    • Funk Obama says:

      +Stephen Harrison shows how much you know. He is a psyop opposition.

    • Hector G. says:

      Corporations are not people and government is supposed to be for the people. The government is supposed to be our voice and not our enemy, politicians have allowed the system to become extremely corrupt.

    • Notcha Grandpa says:

      LMFAO Pelosi “Barr lied to congress no one is above the law” does she remember when Clinton lied to congress

  9. Roedy Green says:

    McConnell, again and again, thwarts the will of the majority. There is something wrong with the constitution that this one person has so much power without being subject to a general election.

    • floornormal1 says:

      He was elected and has served this country well and is doing his job to protect like minded people. In case you have forgotten what elections are for. Some think Trump colluded with the Russians and some believe Hillary and the DNC colluded with the Russians. This is what makes America great. Vote them in or vote them out. Keep America Free so we can.

    • Susan Kay says:

      TERM. LIMITS NOW!!

    • Kitty S. says:

      Violated his oath of office

  10. Jabathaslut says:

    The Congress and it’s investigative committees have a Constitutional right and more so, a requirement of oversight.
    Members of Congress, as does the President undertakes and oath to ” preserve, protect and defend the
    Constitution of the United States.”
    To achieve this end, when Congress is being blocked or delayed in undertaking their responsibility of oversight
    they must use the tools available to them to ensure oversight occurs unhindered. It is time congress use these and
    send the message that the Constitution will be protected. It is time to lay charges of “Contempt of Congress” to those
    who try to block or delay. A strong message with serious ramifications is the only way to bring things back into order.

    • Bernie Cruz says:

      Trump should be impeach for simple violating his OATH! He swore to protect and preserve and defend the Constitution! I think he has already shown that he has failed to do these 3 things AND has violated his oath already! That’s a cause for impeachment, in itself!!!
      OH and for those who don’t know which part Trump violated? It’s the part when he told the border security, the IRS and McGabe, Barr and everyone else in his Administration to ignore and disobey a subpoena! That’s a violation of his oath to preserver, protect and defend the Constitution!!! .

  11. Eric B says:

    Someone needs to leak the unredacted version of the Mueller report and do it quickly.

    • Michael Sine says:

      http://Www.Qmap.pub. You look it up, and then you and all those dems will be trolls together. I got a word for you that you may know, INDICTMENTS

    • Kevin Willis says:

      Agreed. On the bright side, the country majority knows exactly how they will be voting come 2020 – we’ll drain the swamp ourselves since congress is to compromised to do so.

    • Deplorable Mike says:

      Typical of the Democratic Socialist party members to want to break the law.

    • yourfreedom isinyourfeet says:

      Your statement is the exact reason the Country needs Bar to restore the Rule of Law! You are making their argument by such a stupid statement!

    • Mal Mal says:

      Why? The conclusion was no collusion and no obstruction. End of story. Move on to climate change Healthcare and infrastructure

  12. Karl Renner says:

    Did it occur to anyone that draining the swamp would result in Mitch McConnell logging the drain?

  13. uthman shaker says:

    The Repugnants are Fascist looking to establish a Military Right Winged Junta Next Move Martial Law

  14. Karma Reaper says:

    Bill clinton even lost his lawers credential for five years for lying to Congress. What will barr get ?

    • James Kristoff says:

      +David Murphy Smashing her phone..all phones are smashed and destroyed after they have been used. That story got completely distorted..like they got together and had a “phone smashing party..Bring Your Own Hammer.” All electronics are smashed and destroyed…Barr LIED..He didn’t withhold the truth..the dudes blatantly lying to protect that President…

    • Kitty S. says:

      Nixon’s AG went to prison too!

    • George Stone says:

      +Dale Cox for what?? Barr is not obligated to testify or be questioned by staffers of lazy congress people. HILLARY DELETED 33,000 subpoenaed emails and nobody locked her up. Hillary destroyed her subpoenaed server with bleach bit & hammers, nobody locked her up. Hillary lied under oath to congress and nobody locked her up. I can in your post that the Democrap double standard is alive and well.

  15. madbug1965 says:

    We need to vote more Republicans out in 2020 and I am a former republican.

  16. J Andrews says:

    Surely if you disobey a subpoena you are guilty of contempt of court, which can get you to jail

    • George Stone says:

      Nah, The AG CAN SQUASH IT. Look what happened to Hillary when she destroyed 33,000 SUBPOENAED BY CONGRESS EMAILS. LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED TO ERIC HOLDER WHEN HE WAS HELD IN CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS, A BIG FAT NOTHING. But go ahead and hold your breath, but don’t count on breathing anytime soon.

    • A Foggy Frog says:

      Not anymore apparently, and it will now be an argument used everywhere in the country.

  17. Proghead88 says:

    Pretty strong of her. Her pause/stare before “That’s a crime.” was deadly.

    • George Stone says:

      I have seen better faces on an iodine bottle. it was a crime, when JOHN BRENNAN LIED UNDER OATH TO CONGRESS. IT WAS A CRIME WHEN HILLARY DELETED 33,000 SUBPOENAED EMAILS. It was a crime when THE CIA, NSA, DOJ & FBI SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN, BUT I DON’T SEE HER CONDEMNING THOSE ROGUE ACTIONS. EVERYBODY IN WASHINGTON DC HAS LIED TO CONGRESS, BUT ONLY PEOPLE ASSOCIATED WITH TRUMP HAS BEEN CHARGED, WHICH SHOWS THE GLARING DOUBLE STANDARD ON WHO GETS CHARGED. IF YOU ARE AFTER THE RULE OF LAW, THEN YOU MUST INDICT EVERYONE EQUALLY, IF YOU ARE RUNNING A DOG & PONY SHOW, YOU THREATEN EVERYONE WHO DISAGREES WITH YOU WITH CONTEMPT. OH & BTW ERIC HOLDER WAS HELD IN CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS AND NOTHING HAPPENED TO HIM.

  18. Aunty Mammalia says:

    Finally. It’s about time someone called it out. Pelosi named it. Good on her.

    • George Stone says:

      Funny she missed Hillary’s name. You are blaming TRUMP for doing the EXACT SAME THING HILLARY HAS DONE, WHICH SHOWS WHY YOU DEM’S KEEP LOSING ELECTIONS.

    • Georgina Adkins says:

      +George Stone I hate to be the one to break this to you, but Hillary didn’t win, dude… The adults in the room are talking about those in positions of power now.

      Also, Pelosi was speaking about lobbyists and special interest groups ensuring that people like Mitch McConnell look after their interests over those of the American people, as was Aunty Mammalia. If you equate that with blaming Trump, then *you* are the one calling him corrupt, because nobody else was really discussing him…

  19. Roman Devivo says:

    Stop talking about it. We need action. Impeach now. Period.

    • George Stone says:

      Nadler for ABUSE OF POWER. LET’S SEE HIS TAX RETURNS ALONG WITH NANCY & PAUL PELOSI’S TAX RETURNS. LET’S SEE HOW MUCH TAX PAYER CASH THEY STUFFED IN THEIR ACCOUNTS AND SHELL CORPS.
