Trump hasn't even been in the Whitehouse for a year yet and he still has more controversy in his administration than Obama did in his two full terms.

Trump for sure is going down the history book, as one of the most hated and incompetent presidents. Just listening to him or hearing about him makes me wanna rip my ears out and I'm not even an American. Much love and sympathy from Canada.
So many white haired, one poorly dyed blonde haired, white men who should be retired because they are near death. Shouldn't there be an age limit to take political office? Retire and go play a lot of the current president does.

Don't listen to the discredited left-wing psychopath media they are incapable common sense much less simple honesty, vomiting out refuted crowdstrike horseshit is not "journalism" its laughable
Why are non partisan FBI directors allowed to join parties? They're fully capable of takin sides in conflicts between an within parties.

Did they this guys name out of a hat report this or is it actually his job?
Eric Chairman of defense
Comeys counterparts cane out and stated they had the resources to continue the investigation. Sorry vox, you have nothing. :)

It seems like people don't enjoy the fact that the president is expressing his powers. I guess since most other presidents we've had just sat back and did nothing, now that we have one who actually does things and uses that power, people get scared.

` Imagine if Obama did any of this.
I can't believe there are still people who supports this guy. I'm even more surprised that there hasn't been much a call or rallies to impeach him.

impeachment trump Mike pence now

What I find difficult to believe is that the liberals and the democrats were directly blaming Comey for Hillary Clinton's presidential loss and calling Comey everything up to Satanic. And now, these same candy asses are whining and crying as if Comey is a martyr, lol Oh Please, lets here some more about how firing a FBI director that made comments during an election, Looked the other way while a person being investigated had her husband meet with the AG privately on a plane, lets here more about what a superb job he was doing. hahahaha

So Comey was bribed or blackmailed into reopening the emails. Then he's fired by trump later. What House of Cards shenanigans is going on in the white house?
This channel is overwhelmingly bias, and makes unsubstantiated claims like most mainstream media. I am an independent, who voted for neither DT or HC. Yet I can see through their obvious deceptive narrative.
Trum will destroy America, USA citizens have to decided between trump and democracy. OHh They able to choose thanks to democracy. TAKE ACTION CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE. AND SENATOR
Notice this guy uses the word "seems to be investigating". You base your entire video on speculation. Not one fact. Therefore your video is worthless.
Davi trindade
now what ? comey was lying right ? everything is valid for the liberal lunatics to demoralize trump right ?
Aaron Ryan
Dems wanted Comey fired just before the election, and now they are freaking out that Trump fired him. LOL
Michael Chaz
all the lefts wanted him fired 8 months ago but are mad when trump finally does lol
I strongly dislike Trump. But our nation was never meant to be fully democratic. It is designed to be a Representative Republic.
Alex Toussieh
I hate it when anyone titles anything "here's what you need to know". We are they and what authority do they claim to tell me that? It's actually offensive!
Dillon Blair
didn't he say in his dismissal letter that he wasn't under investigation?

like watch stefan molyneux's video on it
Genevieve Dubreuil
I suggest adding the date in the news clips. It's always interesting to have and I find it missing here. Thanks

It's not a democracy, this is a republic. We blindly elect people to make decisions for us. That has been our broken system for years...

Please do a video about Trump giving the Russians classified intelligence. In particular a response to something my dad said yesterday when I told him about all of this which is that Trump is allowed to change the classification and could decide to reveal whatever he wants.
Honestly everyone makes a big deal out of nothing!

Gotta love all the propaganda. Hope ya all feel good in your echo chambers of empty claims. You all dont know what to think until the news makes the talking point for you. When Steven Colbert mentions comey's firing, before you know what to think (from watching cnn.) you had the wrong reaction....cheers...oops. No one can name one piece of "collusion". Im shure with leaks left and right out of washington someone could specify something. Nope. Articles full of "unnamed sources" full of dung. Just keep on flinging hoping something sticks. I have an idea. They are holding this story out to build a story because they know they have nothing and credibility is on the line. I understand though. When every source google, youtube, every newspaper, magazine, late night comedy, hollywood and mtv artist pumps out this propaganda it becomes hard not to jump on the bandwagon. I guarantee 1 thing. There is a bigger cover up happening and its not Donald trumps. He will not be charged with anything. Laugh now but in the end the joke will be on anyone who believes and supports this crap. Ooh its gonna make you lefties furious. Remember this when your all proven wrong.
