AriMelber Yeah right! Go investigate the big guy and his Crack addict artist AriMelber This is what happens win a minority elected president is elected to office. Get rid the Electronic college and the filibuster. AriMelber And yet, miraculously, with all this proof, and all the evidence, and Trump telling us in his own words he did it all, the man walks free and is able to make millions a month grifting the country. It is insulting to everyone.

AriMelber Lock.Him.Up!!! AriMelber Can we say. FUCKING DUH! 🤦🏻‍♂️ AriMelber More like a soft poop. AriMelber For god’s sake when did it finally catch up with him? 33Sail33Comb AriMelber Trump invited Michigan Republicans to WH to get them to change the vote. Trump call Pennsylvania, Arizona and Georgia repeatedly trying to get them to change the results. So when will he be arrested and charged with interfering in an election?

AriMelber O Snap ! AriMelber The January 6th attack on the US Capitol, was America's first, lynch mob' of the 21st century. We pray that it will be the last. The primary instigator of the mob Donald Trump, continues to praise these traitors to the US Constitution; as patriots. AriMelber STONE COLD BUSTED! BURN! 🔥🤣

AriMelber Put nothing pass this guy. AriMelber The wheels of Justice moves slowly but in do course it happens. Maybe not in yours but theirs. AriMelber Soft coup, soft dick, soft brain, mister softee

AriMelber If this was happening 50 years ago, Trump would have been arrested already. AriMelber And absolutely nothing will happen. We'll here threats and chances of, but nothing will happen. AriMelber So, the ultimate question is, what and when will this prove to be a problem for the Cheeto King and what will be his punishment? Based on our poor examples of punishment for the powerful, my guess is it will be, 2 months under house arrest and a suspension of his drivers license.

AriMelber Trump agenda is to divide & destroy the country all while being under Putin control. How can half the people not see that? AriMelber So why hasn't the DOJ locked him up...this is a Federal offense.. AriMelber I have only 3 words for the DOJ…. Lock Him Up! 🤨 AriMelber Joe Biden isn't 'The most popular elected president in US history', and everyone knows it- particularly MSNBC.

AriMelber So why is his ass not in jail already? AriMelber Isn’t that treason? AriMelber The story, broken by the New York Times 24 hours ago, was well reported yesterday. It was not one of those, “the BEAT can revealed to you tonight,” angles.

Notes suggest Trump pressured former acting attorney general to challenge election resultsCongress has obtained handwritten notes from the Department of Justice of a phone call with former President Trump that suggest he was asking Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen to challenge the results of the 2020 election. NBC's Pete Williams has details. He's an STI that won't go away. Can y'all just put this demon in jail already? Jeez.

AriMelber If Trump isn't criminally charged then Justice is dead in America. Worse than that, if there are no consequences for Trump, it opens the door for the future end of democracy and authoritarian government. Constitutional Crisis. AriMelber This is evidence trump violated his office Oath. This alone should convict him. This combined with tax/business/insurance frauds, Insurrection, money laundering, treason, Must convict him. Why the delay? Biden must replace Garland with a prosecutor AG. Convictions eliminate trump

AriMelber Just a reminder , it's been 7 plus months since the election and they're still no chain of custody for the 400000 + absentee ballots sent to drop boxes in Georgia, a state where Joe Biden won by 12500 votes AriMelber LOCK HIM UP!!! AriMelber And again nothing will be done about he won’t be held accountable

AriMelber So what? Find something new to talk about instead of being so obsessed with Trump. AriMelber Yeah, then sent his trump army. AriMelber That when you get a whore dressed in a fancy dress…looks good on the outside by rotten beneath. A total Purge is the only solution..cleans by fire AriMelber Still wont change anything. Remember his comment about shooting someone on 5th ave and it wouldn’t matter to his cult followers. That turns out to be true

AriMelber This tells everything

Trump pressured DOJ to call election ‘corrupt,’ ex-official wroteTrump pressured top Justice Department officials to publicly call the 2020 election “illegal” and “corrupt” and “leave the rest to me,” according to handwritten notes released by a House committee He’s the only corrupt one Arrest him already LockHimUp This shocks literally no one 😳 🙏🏻 🇺🇸

AriMelber Please don’t say “soft” coup again. AriMelber It’s like all things Trump—so what? If no one is willing to do nothing about it, does it matter? People that don’t like Trump knew, or suspected, all of this. To those that worship him, it’s just more, “fake news.” Sensationalizing the obvious is just getting old.

AriMelber Lock him up. AriMelber OMG. Why are we still talking about trump? Biden literally said we are probably going to guns on ground war. We are going to have major cyber attack. Covid is killing hospitals. Nurses and doctors are quitting everywhere. We have other things to worry about!!! AriMelber Arrest him today.

AriMelber Yea it's not like Loretta Lynch went along with Hilary Clinton's and Obama fake Russia hoax scam. You can't be mad at trump if you aren't mad at them for doing the exact same thing AriMelber AriMelber Lock him up AriMelber AriMelber Another thing for the republicans to say, That's not what trump ment. Sad that we allways needed the GOP to tell us what the president did mean.

Trump to DOJ: 'Just say that the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me'Former President Trump pressured his incoming acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen to declare that the election was corrupt in an attempt to help GOP members of Congress try to overturn the election result, according to notes of a December 2020 call. And why isn’t this thug arrested yet? CNN=Communist News Network. How are Brian and Don’s ratings doing?

AriMelber AriMelber So anything going to be done about it of let off again AriMelber Kremlins-Republicans in Congress must understand when Patriots of America finished with Kremlin-Trump they will be next in line.. AriMelber Arrest him. AriMelber This is wickedness🙄🙄 AriMelber Then prosecute and bring the receipts.

AriMelber At this point there is absolutely no excuse to not arrest Trump. If we can lock up 12yo kids for putting pepper in a teachers drink and charge them as adults for poisoning, there is no reason Trump shouldn't be in jail, waiting to be formally arraigned on Monday. AriMelber Of course, he did. It's the Trump thing to do.

AriMelber Lol, as if any of this matters. MSNBC did such a great job normalizing everything that news like this just don't hit anymore. Also...we knew all of this without needing evidence because of his life long historical evidence. AriMelber And Lindell has evidence the US election was a fraud and it maintains to be a fraud today and no longer a viable institution.

New docs show Trump pressing DOJ to lie about election corruption.MaddowBlog: Fmr. President Trump urged the Justice Department to lie about imaginary election corruption, as part of a scheme to hold onto illegitimate power. MaddowBlog Could we have a redo on that last impeachment vote? Asking for some 'people' who are concerned. MaddowBlog You’re only touching the tip of the iceberg, start checking other republicans who are trying to point the finger at democrats. You will be surprised at what you find but I won’t. MaddowBlog This is all part of the 1/6 insurrection! Charge and imprison Trump!

DOJ says Treasury Department must hand over Trump tax information to House committeeThe DOJ's Office of Legal Counsel has determined the Treasury Department must hand over former President Trump's tax returns to the House Ways and Means Committee. Gee that's not a corrupt abuse of power or anything. Wait! We haven’t heard from the Trump-packed Supreme Court. about being corrupt is what you stand for.
