Screen Shot 2017-05-18 at 8.06.42 PM

Since before the 2016 Presidential Election until now, a deluge of news has flowed from Washington D.C. about Donald Trump and Russia.  Keeping up with it all can be exhausting.  Matt spends five minutes explaining the dramatic situation and brings up one important question, “Can the President be charged with a crime?”

Watch today’s entire episode after the jump.

      just wondering if the other networks, NPR, BBC, Reuters, the NY Times and Washington Post avoid the truth and Fox News is the one true network?

      Truth – Hillary made $142 million off of sales of uranium to the Russians. Truth – Podesta the Molesta was on the board of several Russian companies that he didn’t disclose and also made millions. Truth- Comey under oath said there is no collusion, others have said there is no collusion, and the Russians are offering video tape to prove it as well. FACT – No one says the Russians hacked the election, just that they were involved in uncovering all of Hillary’s genuinely illegal and treasonous activity in which she gave the Russians access to Special Access Programs, the most classified info we have. You have to go to a separate building which only a handful of people have access to, use their PC’s to see it, and the only way that info leaves the building is if you illegally copy it and carry it out with you which she did. More facts. Comey said under oath there was no obstruction by Trump. Meanwhile, Hillary deleted over 33,000 emails that were under Congressional subpoena, smashed electronic devices and poured bleach on them. If criminal charges are brought against Trump, then Hillary has to face a firing squad. This is the liberal attempt to burn America to the ground before accepting an election they lost.

      Syrin….like Trump, you are a delusional LIAR. The facts do not support any of your bogus claims. With a little UNBIASED research one can quickly see the truth in your LIES…like Trumps. Try a site like Politifact and not Brietbart or Alex Jones to get your “fake news” based on “alternative facts”. You should be ashamed to peddle such tripe to the gullible. You act like a paid Russian troll Putin used to help Donald get elected. He WILL resign in disgrace before the year is over. Put that in your pipe and smoke it Comrade.

      Delray, not a single thing you said is factual, just more hatred stemming from the vacuous spot where your soul SHOULD be. Literally, just a hate filled rant, no refutation. EVERYTHING is verifiable, things said under oath are recorded. You are the one living in the land of the liberal where everyone is dependent on food stamps and welfare. Hillary and Podessta the Molesta don’t even deny this. And by the way, the whole divulging classified info is LAUGHABLE. He told Putin that the terrorists might use laptops as explosive devices, and for that, you hate filled liberals want to file charges when Obama did the same thing. Guess, what, the president is ALLOWED to unvlassify material, especillay when it comes to defeating a common enemy.

      More importantly for you Delray, not even ObamadoesntCare can sure your advanced soul cancer. Move to Venezuela, it’s the end result of unchecked liberalism.

      LOL…your desperation is palpable Syrin, and your your projection pathetic. Why should I engage in refuting your clearly BS stories? MANY MANY outlets have proven your nonsense to be totally false, hence why Hillary and others don’t bother to refute your ignorant rant. I admit she sucked as a candidate, but she has more integrity in one little finger than Donald and his entire criminal cabal of yes-men have. You do realize there are nearly a DOZEN ACTUAL CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS ongoing into Trump and his affiliates?? When are you and your ilk going to realize…you were duped by a conman. There is no shame my friend in admitting you were had.

      DelrayCat, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this discussion is now dumber for having read it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

      Delray im no left or rightist, but when you say you have been duped by a con man, Trumps been president for a few months and you say weve been duped and hes a con? The whole left right paradigm has everyone on both sides fighting about make believe stories, to make their candidate sound the best. Breaking news, your person lost! Just because your person lost the election doesnt mean you have to act like a loser, just accept the fact that hes our president. This is a democracy and you dont want to accept it so you cry and throw fits, if Hillary won you would say the same thing for Rep to acceopt her. Just tell Trump to release his taxes if he isnt tied to the Russians, they would be able to figure that out fairly quickly to see if he was paid. That’s not gonna happen, so no one will ever truly know. And what if he was trying to make amends with Russians to end Isis? Whats so bad about taking care of a common enemy? One that is extreme and full of hate.

Make you can do it from inner city Detroit, Memphis, Chicago, Baltimore, LA, East St. Louis, etc. all liberal bastions showing us what decades of unchecked liberal policies reaps.

      Nice how you cherry-pick systemically poor urban areas with high percentages of minorities. No doubt the problems in these communities are significant. Gun violence there is a big problem, but is directly related to the surge in heroin throughout this country along with segmented demographics. Liberal politics and polices have very little to do with it. I could make the same argument that states like Kansas, Mississippi, etc. that have been long republican controlled have failed miserably in economic terms with this GOP pipe dream of endless tax cuts for the rich. Face it….trickle down economics does not work, and republican controlled states take in FAR more tax money than they contribute. Lest we forget…the real liberal centers in America…NY, LA, Chicago, Bay Area, Seattle, etc. are the technological and financial leaders of this country and the world….and areas consistently led by democrats.

      Yeah, NYC is the finance and banking center of the world and generates a ton of income for the United States. This fact is both used as a cudgel against Republicans (“greedy bankers and fund managers are ruining America. We need to embrace more crippling regulation or even outright Socialism!”) and in support of Democrats (“New York pays way more taxes than middle America, never mind that this money comes from a sector that we are constantly calling noxious!”). A similar dichotomy can be found in the Bay Area where the hardcore liberals hate the libertarian politics of the majority of the tech community, but still somehow try to take credit for the robust economy in the state. And in both cases the customers that are supporting these industries are spread across the country.

      TL;DR you can’t complain about the rich and the poor in the same breath and not look silly.

    Only a small group of insane lefties care what Matt says about trump or bevin . Fact is, despite his obsession with trump and bevin, both would be re-elected by wider margins if the election was held today. They left will continue to act like immature, intolerant idiots, and continue to lose elections.

    There is more loyalty to this country in a single democrat than the entire GOP. The Democrats have never sold out this nation to another country, let alone our primary rival. You duped fools have only succeeded at installing this chump in the WH by eagerly cheering from the sidelines as Russia manipulated the gullible like you with outright lies and real foreign collusion. There is no loyalty to America with this Administration. Only to themselves.

    You Trumpkins like to say “You won”. You are wrong. We all lost, whether you voted for him or not.

    • syrin23

      You mean except for the Special Access Programs hacked by China, Russia, and Iraq, and Podesta being on the board of Russian companies, and Obama giving guns to Mexican drug cartels still used in terrorist attacks, and you mean like Obama giving Isreali secret info to their Mid East enemies, and you mean like Obama paying Iran billions in exchange for terrorist demands, etc. Yeah, NEVER.

      Meanwhile Obama left us with record unemployment, record number of people on welfare, record number of people on food stamps, the lowest level of job participation, but like all Antifa idiots, all you have is vitriol and raw hatred. No a single fact at hand.

      “Democrats have never sold out this nation to another country, let alone our primary rival”

      Hmm, didn’t the Democratic Party throw their entire voting base by rigging the system against Hilary’s “primary rival”? Don’t act so high and mighty.

      In 2011, Podesta joined the board of Joule Unlimited, a solar-based alternative fuel company headquartered in Massachusetts, with operations in New Mexico and the Netherlands. A few months after Podesta took on this role, Anatoly Chubais, chairman and CEO of Russia-backed investment fund RUSNANO, also joined Joule’s board.
      There doesn’t appear to be anything untoward or illegal about the fact that Podesta sat on a corporate board with a Russian banker. Nonetheless, some of his and Clinton’s critics have played it up. Conservative website the Daily Caller has alleged that Podesta didn’t properly disclose his shares in Joule when he joined the Obama administration in 2014.
      In any case, the company is American, not Russian. This is called a Fact, not like your “fake news”.

      Fast and Furious was a mistake made at a low level…you really think Obama made that call?

      The Iranian money was THEIR money. The sanctions are widely regarded to be working by the way.

      Record unemployment…are you high? What was the rate when he took office versus when he left?
      True welfare was up at record highs for a while in 2013…but Bush & the R’s put us into a big recession…do you recall that? The numbers have dropped since.

      Dude you keep projecting I have “hate”…seems to be you are the one with an anger problem.

      Bill Clinton Gave North Korea TWO nuclear reactors and 5 BILLION cash to stop its nuclear weapons program. NK admits it never stopped its weapons program,
      Bill Clinton also transferred missile launch technology to China. Which aided China’s ICBM technology. Who then “lost” said technology to North Korea.
      So tell me again how a Democrat has NEVER sold USA out?

      DelRay…the only thing that you’ve convinced me of is your ignorance (not stupidty, just being unaware). I was raised in a family where both parents were Democrats. The Democrats you speak of being loyal and patriotic are those of my fathers generation (WWII vets for the most part). Today’s Democrats are socialists (see Bernie for the most outrageous example). This is sad. The RINO Republicans make me the most angry though. You are sadly invested in an idea that your best hope for prosperity is to attach yourself to a corrupt Democratic party. (RINO’s not much better). If you truly believe in this country and its ideals but yet attach yourself to the Democrats…you are plainly misinformed. I think you mean well but don’t seem to be able to think independently but rather read talking points of the left. If you want to truly affect positive change in this country, forget about these two political parties and investigate the winds of change called Convention of States…it’s coming. If after this investigation you object to it’s goals then you are no patriot but a despot and an enemy of the country and constitution. Matt Jones is pathetic with his use of a “UK Sports” site to push his ignorant political beliefs. Remember that he considered running for Congress and he arrogantly fashions himself as some kind of political savant whose purpose here is to indoctrinate the uninformed. It really is sad to watch. Matt Jones is motivated here by something other than interesting conversation.

    Thanks for again assuming that we want your opinion on politics like everyone else with a platform. Just because you’re popular for something doesn’t mean we give a lick what you think about politics. I wonder if you did this purely to get clicks, or because you honestly believe we need this type of stuff from you. If you want to talk politics, start a new blog

      Sad thing is he really didnt even do a good job. It was just that a vast majority of us are tired of the malfunctioning system in washington. Then a walking talking demolition bomb comes along, and enough of america shoved it morals/principles into a closet to elect it.

      The greatest con artist in American history is Barry Soetero (you know..the guy who keeps changing his name). The worst part of that story are the millions of lemmings who elected him twice. He will be exposed for who is really is…and those who voted for him will deny they did. Honestly, it takes true ignorance and incompetent within an electorate to elect someone like Obama not once but…twice. Useful idiots. Only when an electorate is this stupid can people as corrupt as Obama be elected. You may not like Trump but you cannot show me how he has “conned” the American people.

    If you spent 8 years objecting to Obama policy (raises hand), then you are being clearly disingenuous if you think Trump is doing a good job. And to cut off the “well, hillary would have been worse” excuses, i dont care. That is an alternate timeline in another universe. I only care about this one.

    James Comey is a poisonous snake of the highest order – a deep-water Swamp Denizen who has been highly paid to deliberately provide cover for high-level corruption by the Clintons and Obama. He has been central to trying to destroy the Trump campaign and then the Trump administration from the start. He is as dirty as they come in DC. He had highest-level cover (the FBI no less) and was deep into an effort to eliminate Trump. Trump had to move hard, fast, and at exactly the right time to cut the head off the snake without getting bitten by the snake or being finished by the other swamp denizens.
