    Jail this cultish 72 year old bum immediately until all legal matters are ADJUDICATED and Tribunals are completed before the eyes and ears of the American People and before it‘s TOO LATE: Flimsy DOJ Policy is just that, a policy, but the constitution and oath of office are the LAW of this land regardless of what Communist Russian Loving Republicans believe and the constitution and oath of office override any policy suggestion and NO Man or in this dreadfully pathetic case “Circus CLOWN” who actually believes windmills cause cancer, is above said LAW:

    Don't think Trump was a bum at his infant stage of life, on his defense. I learned that ultimate assh_le like Trump, let them be assh_le.
    There is better ways to spend my time, like being example for people to inspire to.

      Here in the USA, when a person is accused of committing a serious crime(s), said suspect is arrested immediately and typically incarcerated until said criminal court case(s) are adjudicated: So, unless Donald is ABOVE our laws, legally speaking, he should be sitting in an iron cage right now being psychologically terrorized, shoved around and tossed about by his 400 pound muscle bound cell-mate don't you think?

          The question is: Now that Donald truly believes he got away with "Obstructing Justice" "Abusing Power" and "Conspiring To Accept Espionaged Property", should we allow him to CONTINUE with his latest INSANE Lawless actions of "Obstructing Congress" by showing "CONTEMPT" or do we begin the legal process of his REMOVAL from our Oval Office to salvage what might be remaining of our once great nation?

        This isn't exactly correct...
        If accused you are taken in for questioning.
        Once enough evidence is obtained, then you are arrested and charged.
        And depending, one can be released on bail until convicted.

        So....

        And your subject line in also incorrect...Congress does not have the authority to arrest anyone.

          Well Double Scorpion, I seriously doubt "BAIL" would be an option for a flight risk like Donald who has exhibited a well documented pattern of abominable nefarious acts and who is currently under investigation for many serious felony crimes:

          Congress does indeed have the authority to imprison those who show "CONTEMPT" and if Barr chooses to act like a circus clown just like Bozo Trump, and OBSTRUCT Congress he should be thrown in jail to think about it for a year or so, or at least until he decides to answer ALL questions so we can get to the bottom of everything:

          "He / She could face up to a year in prison and a fine of up to $1,000. When a witness in a congressional inquiry ignores a subpoena—and refuses either to testify before a committee or hand over requested documents—the committee can vote to issue a citation for contempt."

              This is NOT normal, It's NOT Patriotic, and it's NOT exhibiting an ALLEGIANCE to the USA: It's called BOWING and Cowering to a Powerful Communist Russian Dictator on Global Television which severely undercuts and weakens the USA in every way imaginable so the question is WHY is he doing this?: Go ahead, try to convince people they don't see and hear this bizarre looking national disgrace with their very own eyes and ears

                  If you're asking whether of not I consult with "nationalist" nonsense like Fox Phony Channel, or Rush Limpy or breitbart or the nationalists floating around here or any other number of ridiculous hate filled propaganda outlets which still support a retard who as reported, has already recited about 10,000 LIES, the answer is NO:

                  The EVIDENCE which supports the case for Bozo Trump being illegitimate, a clown who received substantial assistance from Vladimir Putin during the 2016 presidential election, can be found in vivid color within the pages of the Mueller Report, right between ALL the DAMNING evidence of his crimes, but my hunch is that you may be a nationalist which is of course your right, but it also probably indicates FACTS may not matter to you:

                    I am an American. I don't really fit into political parties of any sort, as they tend to be of sheep mentality.

                    I was actually asking if you only got your facts from media sources, or did you do actual research.

                    I have read the Mueller report. And I don't see anything that supports a claim of illegitimate. I did see that there were attempts, but they were rejected.

                    Facts do indeed matter to me, which is why I research things on my own, without being told what to think. I would suspect, that your hatred has lead to a bias as to what you consider to be factual information.

                    I look for fact, regardless if they support my personal opinions or not. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't and when they don't support my opinions, I change my opinion instead of twisting facts to match my opinions.

            Holding someone on contempt is not the same as arresting someone.
            And the contempt only holds until the person complies...

            In the case of Barr, there are laws that protect his refusing to produce what congress is asking for. So, this particular case would have to be taken to court.

            According to current law, he was not required to provide the report at all. Of course congress could just change that law and that would change everything. But, we have to do things the hard way because there needs to be a fall guy...

            Rumor has it Mueller may testify soon. I am hoping and looking forward to that actually happening...Although, if his testimony confirms Barr's testimony, I doubt it will be accepted.

              I don't know where you live DoubleScorpion, but here in the USA, congress has the right to arrest and detain a person in jail until said person complies with a subpoena issued by congress and that's a FACT: Law Enforcement also has a right to INDICT someone like Donald Trump for any number of crimes, torts and or violations of the constitution and his oath:

                Jake...You seriously do not read do you...I have told you where I am from...Down to the State I live in.

                There are very special circumstances in which Congress can have someone detained (the last time this was exercised was in 1934). And those circumstances are not in play in this situation (subject to change).
                But, Law enforcement cannot indict a sitting president...Congress has to remove them via Impeachment. And the constitution does not cover if a president can be tried in court, and the SCOTUS have still not made a ruling. So, no, law enforcement cannot indict the President...Trump or any Future, unless laws are changed. Only congress can do something via the Impeachment process.

                  The Constitution provides for removal under other circumstances. Not just impeachment. Read Article 25. It clearly states "removal" not impeachment and not just for insanity or mental incapacity. Though we all know Trump is a mental defective.

                    Hi Ewent: What DoubleScorpion doesn't seem to understand is that congress does indeed have the "INHERENT" right to Arrest and Jail individuals, even white house staff and if they choose not to exercise their power now in these EXTREMELY Nightmarish Circumstances, WHEN will they ever? He also doesn't seem to understand that the ONLY thing preventing the INDICTMENT of Donny Boy is a "FLIMSY" little DOJ Memo so we will soon find out if that memo takes precedence over our LAWS, Constitution and Presidential Oath of Office, all of which Donny is or has VIOLATED:

                    *Lack of remorse or guilt
                    *Shallow emotions
                    *Callousness; lack of empathy
                    *Using others (a parasitic lifestyle)

                    *Promiscuous sexual behavior
                    *Behavioral problems early in life
                    *Lack of realistic, long-term goals
                    *Being impulsive
                    *Being irresponsible
                    *Blaming others and refusing to accept responsibility

      You obviously are not someone paying 6 Trump bankruptcies as we taxpayers in NJ are. Trump has been a Momma's boy spoiled brat since he was a toddler.

      "HIS" toys belonged to him and him only. "HIS" bike belonged to him and him only. Now he thinks this country belongs to HIM and HIM only.

      This we do not allow. Out of 18 Republicans running for president in 2016, RASSPutin supported and helped ONLY Trump. You can guess why.

        Absolutely Ewent, his bankruptcies were horrendous financial failures and burdens and we still haven't seen the results of the FBI Inquiry which was initiated to determine if Donald was or is a Russian Asset, and how could any rational individual possibly doubt that after watching his insane public actions which undermine our democracy and NATO for the last 3 nightmarish years: I can't even imagine what he's doing in private:

        Soon we'll find out what takes precedence in the USA, a "FLIMSY" DOJ Memo which states a sitting president can't be indicted, or our LAWS, Constitution and President Oath of Office:

          As to Trump's money laundering, it fried my brains that NJ's Casino Commission knew all about it for at least 5 years and did nothing. Oh sure, they gave him several warnings. Big Deal! To Trump, a warning is like a green light to go right ahead and continue his corruption.

          The only reason FinCEN of the US Treasury finally went after him was because the NJ Casino Commission knew that Trump's favorite bank (Deutschebank) got that money laundering fine and the Casino Commission didn't want to appear to be negligent in their duties to go after Trump.

          Now, if the Dems continue to make idle threats to Trump, the longer they delay, the more power he amasses. How stupid can they be? Trump does not react in any way to idle threats.

          Either carry them out or the AHA (Arrest HIS Ass) Americans fed up with the delays of justice will.

          Look it isn't as if dictators have not had to be hauled out butt end first out of their Ivory Towers. There isn't enough US military to stop the millions of now fed up and too angry Americans.

          And, here is another problem. 2 federal district court judges have now been allowed to see the unredacted Mueller report so they can fairly judge 2 cases, one against Flynn and the other against his son.

          It turns out that when Senator Mazie Hiron (D-HI) read the part of the Mueller report this week, Trump's lawyer, John Dowd, threatened Flynn if he continued to flip on Trump.

          This was a voice mail piece of evidence where you hear Dowd say, "Mr. Trump is not pleased with you."

          How in blue hell is Mr. Trump to think he is the only American above the law.

          Now, some of Trump's lawyers are being looked at for obstruction of justice by carrying out Trump's orders.

          If Dems won't arrest Trump, Americans will and it won' t be pretty.

              UNTRUE Hxprof: If the public is unaware of the details of the investigative report it's considered brand new info, and boy is this an Atomic BOMBSHELL that apparently nobody but Donny boy and his accountant knew about:

              According to the mind boggling report, Donald bled on average 10s of millions of dollars in consecutive years from 1985 to 1994 and if anyone could be INDICTED and or Impeached for Atrociously Bad Business Acumen he would absolutely be the TOP Candidate: But fortunately for him, that won't happen because all the damning evidence indicates he's headed straight to prison after he's arrested for so many other horrendous actions:

              Ever wonder WHY he's prepared to break the law and send weirdo Steve Mnuchin to jail for breaking the law in order to desperately CONCEAL his most recent tax returns? Well, who really knows, but it looks like we all got a big preview of it in the NYT report: UNREAL:

                Trump opposed every turn with hemp & Marrijanna. By far the World greatest cash crop in the world. Most third world countries have been outgrown US GDP. Also many third world countries make their largest income from cannabis even though it's under the black market. No other one great product in the world, could be as much a game changer, than cannabis.

                    American young and old are flocking to the cannabis States, both in medical treatments and the best goal rush America will ever experience. Cannabis is the best medicine known to man.

                    Expots: medical marijuana draws parents to US for their children’s treatments
                    ‘Marijuana refugees’ are uprooting their lives and moving to Colorado, California and Oregon to legally use cannabis to treat their children’s health conditions.
                    Tristan Forde used to experience as many as 20 seizures a day. The two-year-old has Dravet Syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy, and was forced to constantly wear a helmet – suffering seizures so frequently that his three-year-old brother would automatically go to the freezer and get an ice pack every time Forde had an attack.
                    Everything changed, on medical cannabis treatment. He went months without suffering a single seizure, says his
                    mother. known as “international medical marijuana refugees”, who have in recent years turned their lives upside down and moved from overseas to Colorado for cannabis-based medicines that they say carry profound health effects.

                    Trump keeps it illegal at the federal level. But anecdotally, pot advocates say they know of a number of international families who have traveled to the US to try medical marijuana – with some deciding to permanently relocate after observing positive impacts.

I certainly did not intend to insult farmers.

Very odd indeed, how on Earth did that happen?: Hardly anybody showed up for his puny little inauguration as well and that's no big surprise, just another sign that he probably never got as many legitimate votes as he claims: His tiny inauguration crowd size was indicative of a candidate who got maybe 20 million legitimate votes if he was lucky, just about the same small size as the total amount of his followers:

            Actually, he has done a lot to stop election tampering?  Do just a bit of research on the subject, and you will find Trump has been very proactive in trying to stop Russia from election interference.

            Sept 2018 - "In this week’s fact-checking video, CNN’s Jake Tapper discusses Hillary Clinton’s misleading claim that President Donald Trump has shown a “complete unwillingness to stop” Russian interference in U.S. elections."

            "The Department of Treasury imposed sanctions against Russians who have been indicted for allegedly interfering in the 2016 presidential election.
            Trump signed an executive order giving the president discretion to impose sanctions on foreign countries that interfere in U.S. elections
            .
            The Department of Homeland Security has developed partnerships with all 50 states to help local elections officials defend against any election interference.

            The FBI is working with social media and technology companies to combat influence campaigns such as the one Russia allegedly engaged in during the 2016 election.

            The Director of National Intelligence is leading an inter-agency working group of cyber and intelligence experts to improve election security."

            I guess we can thank Russia for our wonderful economy...   am sure they really want us to do well.

              It's okay Sharlee, most of Trump's dwindling number of followers don't understand their health insurance either and I'll refer back to my previous comment: If Blue Cross Blue Sheild decides to Unilaterally CANCEL your insurance for ANY reason which they have in the past, there is no law that can stop them, if Blue Cross decides to charge you 10X Premiums for your Pre-Existing Condition Coverage or evn Cancel your Pre-Existing Coverage there is no law that can STOP them, if Blue Cross CAPS your coverage there's no law to stop them from doing so: ALL these potentially disasterous situations are NON-Existant within ObamaCARE ACA because of the Consumer Protections which make it ILLEGAL for insurance companies to take advantage of you:

              BTW, I was able to keep my Blue Cross insurance and my doctor as ObamaCARE was Rolled Out, so that big Fox Fake News LIE about not being able to do so was just that, a BIG LIE: The only thing preventing me from switching from Blue Cross to ObamaCARE is the uncertainty recklessly caused by INSANE Conservatives and Bozo Trump trying to DISMANTLE our HealthCARE System, a Crime Against Humanity which ALL CONservatives will pay dearly for in PRISON and when called home by GOD for judgement:

                  Sharlee, that's a typical response from a Trump follower but you FAILED to present any evidence to the contrary because every word of what I said in my previous comments is TRUE and you know it: OBAMACARE ACA is the ONLY HealthCARE System aside from Medicare which includes critically important CONSUMER Protections that a private insurance company like Blue Cross which is set up to make a PROFIT before anything else, DOES NOT:

                  Enough about Bozo Trump's and "Moscow" Mitch McConnell's appeasement and blatant aiding of our enemy Vladimir Putin by doing everything possible to DESTROY our HealthCARE System, let's talk about Trump's and his comrades treasonous behavior for which they will sooner or later meet the LAW: "Moscow" Mitch just BURNED a Bill which would have made it more difficult for Vladimir Putin to get his little oval office stooge re-elected in 2020, if of course Satan intervenes and keeps Comrade Donald out of prison so he can run:

                  You're not OUTRAGED as the rest of the country is with this blatant act of betrayal of the USA ?? What does Bozo or Mitch need to do before your outrage bubbles up, stand at the white house steps and hand over the keys to Russian Soldiers as they storm Pennsylvania Ave ?? Is that what it would take Sharlee ?? Honestly, is an orange faced 73 year old retard who could obviously care less about you, your family or the USA really worth it ??

              Face facts. I was an accounting manager. I know what HMOs do. They are ALL nothing more than profiteering middle men who send out their hawkers to rake in the profits from the sick, the dying and the elderly.

              If you healthcare paid 100%, you fail to mention that ALL Insurance plans offer 100% ONLY if you pay through the nose on monthly premiums.

              Don't even try to deny it. In the 7 years before our company closed, we had 7 different HMOs all who would contact the employer every September in droves from Aetna, United Healthcare, Blue Cross Blue Shield and several others.

              Their cute little game plan was to undercut the cost of the existing plan in place. For one year. Oh yes. It was less expensive. Until renewal time. That's when they recouped every dime of the profits lost by offering the previous year's discount.

              As for Blue Cross, Blue Shield, it is NOT available in all states. I know this because I live in NJ.

              All HMOs use a geographical map to decide which states they can jack monthly premium prices to.

              So a Blue Cross Blue Shield plan can cost  close to $400 a month for an individual or more OR up to $1500 a month for a family of 4.

              You can choose your own doctor in most any ACA plan. There is NO stipulation that you have to switch to a network of doctors.

              Why? Because if you choose the ACA, your state has an agency that is monitoring the insurance companies who are their participants and all of them have to be licensed.

              Nice try though bashing the ACA. But I just can't wait till you have to go on Medicare at age 65. You are in for the rudest awakening of your life.

                The only reason WHY I have not converted over to the ACA is because of the non-STOP INSANE Chaos and Uncertainty of this illegitimate oval office, Reckless CONservative Republicans in Congress, and their CONSTANT attempt to undermine our HealthCARE System by trying to DESTROY the ACA: Otherwise, I would have switched over without hesitation but how can I do that now?: If I had no insurance I would have signed up for ObamaCARE ACA immediately:

                    Right now, in the darkest of years 2019, believe it or not, Trump and Republicans are turning this once great nation into a third world state, our oval office and Communist Russian Loving Congressional Republicans are trying desperately to STRIP this life saving insurance from MILLIONS of Americans as we speak and that will be another CHARGE of Criminality, a "Crime Against Humanity" when the Tribunals Commence:

                    Now, Get off the BS. NY's Governor Cuomo very wisely allowed the establishment of an ACA agency in that state.

                    My Republican Govenor Fat Mouth Chris Christie refuse to allow it.

                    Since you can't stand truth, here's one you will hate. People in NY now pay 11% LESS for their healthcare than people in NJ.

                    Every single state where a Republican politician refused to set up an ACA agency caused the loss of healthcare for 4 MILLION People.

                    If you are so irresponsible and think you can just dump the cost of your FREE healthcare on MY healthcare insurance think again.

                    The whiners and wusses complaining the loudest about the ACA are the MOOCHERS who live off Dem state taxes and force Dems states to pay for the MOOCHERS in red states who are too irresponsible to pay for their own.

                    And yes, I am aware that medicare does that, too, but it is not and was not the primary function.

                      I have never in my life heard a conservative claim that Medicare isn't socialism until now.

                      It is social ownership of a government program, which makes it socialism.

                      And yes, it does take away someone's money to give to a third person.

                      If I make $1 billion in a single year like some billionaires, I pay $14.5 million in Medicare taxes.

                      I certainly don't get all of that money back in one year of Medicare coverage after turning 65. That money I paid goes to other people. Just like private health insurance through ACA.

                    Medicare is funded by the Social Security Administration. Which means it's funded by taxpayers: We all pay 1.45% of our earnings into FICA - Federal Insurance Contributions Act - which go toward Medicare. Employers pay another 1.45%, bringing the total to 2.9%. 

                    You have made a very good point. Now just think of the tax increases that would come along with Health care for all... And when our doing that math, please consider at this point Medicare only pays for 80%.  Facts can be sobering.

      Our country prior to the Obama administration was not even in the insurance business. Not sure why we need to be now?  This is America we have always had options in regards to health care. Freedoms to make our own decisions in regards to health care. So how wins?  The people that want choice, and are willing to pay for their health insurance or those that are financially unable to but healthcare? Perhaps medicare could be on income bases?  However, we all know when the government is involved such a program could lead to abuse.

      Perhaps, with this better economy and an abundance of jobs, more will be able to join citizens that prefer to choose and pay...  It just seems to me we are going backward as a society if we have to have substandard health care that socialized medicine offers.

              African swine flu is certainly an issue and there is still a high demand for pork. I've read about how extreme some of the effects are from massive industrial farms in the US. Although, there is capacity for SE Asia to rise up and meet a lot of the demand, especially with China courting governments with infrastructure investments.

              We do have the ability to feed ourselves in the US, much more than we are taking advantage of. We import food (especially fish and chicken) from China via Walmart supply lines, etc. simply because of the low cost. I would fully embrace revised legislation/reduction of legislation to make it easier for people to convert lawns into gardens/hobby farms and become more self-sufficient.

              And it's funny how the same government officials that will demonize any money that gets into the hands of average people as evil socialism, but how subsidies become a go-to strategy when it serves their own political purposes.

                We also have a whole host of Communist Russian Loving CONservatives in congress including a Repugnantkin named "Moscow" Mitch McConnell who also appears to be willfully "Aiding and Abetting" our arch enemy Vladimir Putin by "BLOCCKING" a bill in congress which was designed to HALT Russia's Cyber War on our Democracy:

                What else do these corrupt politicians need to do before Trump's last remaining followers finally realize he and most republicans could care less about them, their families or this once great country? Invite the Russian Military here for a PARADE ??

                  If ever you had any doubt why  Moscow Mitch is up Trump's butt, it was reported in Time Magazine and the NYT.

                  As it turns out, Oleg Derepaska, a Russian businessman and close ally of Putin, had business dealings with the now jailed Manafort.

                  But, and here is where it gets really really bad for this country. Trump could not have been elected without help from a very powerful source. So he relied on Russia. That makes him compromised in every way possible.

                  Trump also needed insurance to make certain he had control of the Senate. What better way to do that than by bribing Moscow Mitch to repeal the sanctions against Derepaska and Russia.

                  That repeal allowed Russia to do business here in the US. Guess which state is going to get a multi billion dollar industry owned by Derepaska? None other than Moscow Mitch's state.

                  Turns out Derepaska's RuAl (Russia Aluminum) is planning to build a multi million dollar aluminum plant in one of the blighted areas of KY. That way Moscow Mitch can say he is creating thousands of jobs. RUSSIAN jobs.

                  Now for the nuclear fallout. RuAL will be entitled now to tax dollars that you just know Moscow Mitch will not fail to make sure goes through KY's state legislature and the Senate.

                  The fallout occurs when states opposing Russian influence in our government and elections are the ones who are donor states handing Moscow Mitch's state billions every year in moocher state funding. Now some of that will go to Russia.

                  What's worse is that since Trump has encouraged so many US billionaires to pay for the politicians they want, now Derepaska and Putin have the same leverage.

            That nonsense sounds just like one of two possibilities: A "CULT Chant" or a Russian Propaganda Phrase Propagated on the internet: Something weirdo cult leader Marshall Applewhite would say, "The only thing that matters is boarding that spaceship in the sky":
