    Legal Eagle, Trump was right. Why do you think that they all were against him and censoring him. The news hasn't been real for years and years now except for local news. BHO administration appointed people to news rooms to help prioritize stories WTH is that about? Were you bitching then?

    Yet he did what he said he would do an more, nobody wants to acknowledge this little point ! More people we're employed everybody no wars great trade policy made china accountable and let me be clear he proved that whenever negotiating it was ALWAYS AMERICA FIRST !! Independentl of foreign energy No wars More stock market record days Donald Trump knows how to run a business and ballance the books ! Unlike politicians who milk it ! Now look at the mess joe has done in 4 months ? No even capable of answering a random question, corruption of his son, his btother all mixed up in exploiting foreign affairs for self enrichment. Social media keeping silent of Joe's funny business

    I dont care what side of the political spectrum a person is, they should all hate today's MSN. They lie to all of us. Legal Eagle talks out of his rear. Just like how he said Trump was a conspiracy theorist when he said Obama spied on him during the 2016 election. Somehow it was legal then. Somehow the all of a sudden the constitution matters when they want the protections from it.

  • rickabay

    Yes in america mainstream news chanels like cnn tell their audiences it is the news but its politically motivated truth distortions... There was no collusion with Russia.... but "reporters" wear pushing it, it is a national security matter when people difame their president in order to replace with a pupet....

  • Devin Crawford

    They were doing a investigation of leaked information because the CNN report was very accurate or related to the situation and Barbra Starff was connected to both sides.

      Perhaps an executive order to correct the failing in way schools in the US teach English, might have also been worth considering?

  • Fi

    Seems kind of obvious to me. Just imagine you replace ‘Trump’ with maybe say, a Russian name. Might make more sense if you put it in that context and think of the way that person might operate in Trumps former position.

  • Turnabout Turnip Null

    If they didn't do anything wrong, then they have nothing to worry about. If I recall, that's the justification for the Russia collusion investigation. Maybe don't enact frivolous investigations that clearly have no merit?

      "Outgoing Attorney General William Barr said Monday that he saw no reason for a special counsel to take over the criminal investigation of Hunter Biden, son of President-elect Joe Biden, undercutting President Donald Trump yet again." You mean the laptop and investigation that Trump's own AG and DoJ said there was nothing to.

    Just a reminder if the news reported on Biden telling the Ukraine government to fire the prosecutor looking into his son and his corruption 17% of voters would not have voted for him. Biden bragged about getting the prosecutor fired for looking into his son and with holding aid.

    Not for no reason at all, assuming you are a nobody in the DOJ. The subpoenas had to be based on articuable suspicion, facts,, evidence, derived from am initial investigation into leaks from the Whitehouse by the very ppl charged with maintaining government info. Its called an investigation, not a random retrieval of someone's personal data! Hopefully even you could set your bias aside long enough to figure that out! Where is your objectivity?

    Goes to show that this lawyer is a cock sock. What did you have to say when Obama did the same thing but against his political rivals, even against Trump himself? I'm not saying what Trump did was right but it's hypocritical to demonize Trump for what the President position has been doing for years.

      Sydney Powell, you mean the Lawyer who's defense is "No reasonable person would believe there was fraud in the election" who then goes on to say I'm her defense that there was fraud. You mean the Lawyer that in her own defense said there was no way a reasonable person would believe there was fraud but she believes there was fraud, but no reasonable person would believe such a thing.
