    I love that after Stephen asks the question he is left completely out of the conversation and they are all talking to each as if he’s not there and it’s just a recording of the podcast.

    Washington bureaucrats will never understand that if trump said the sky was green, his followers would believe it. Facts or not, this rot has set in. America has forever been changed

    The funniest would be if Trump pardons Clinton.

    Really, you don’t even want to contest pardons given to subvert the cause of justice, which was never the reason behind allowing pardons? And David Plotz -his idea is just give up on investigations because nothing might happen???!!! Investigations MUST happen, not just to set warnings for future powers, but to show all citizens what happened and to try to restore faith in the political system.

    I know T***p wants to bring back capital punishment, but Biden should 1-up him, and bring back stock locking as a viable punishment, and lock people up in the town square so that they have no option of walking away if anyone comes up and tries to talk to them. Put out some tomatoes for the kids, and let them thrown them at his big dumb head

    We cannot NOT investigate. At least know what he did! This country has literally been abused! The stress alone has done visible damage. Find out what he did. Even if you don’t prosecute!

    If they won’t police themselves it is left to the media

    The legacy of Donald Trump can be laid squarely at the feet of Mitch “We’ll do absolutely anything to hold on to power” McConnell…

    you have laws or you don’t. makeup your mind, I think you people just like corruption.

    5:00 this guy is seriously suggesting that somehow a thorough investigation, you know following the rule of law, is a bad thing?! That takes political ‘awareness’ to an epically failed level. Let’s be blunt any DoJ honest investigation into the Trump Administration is going to be overwhelming in scope. This is the largest RICO case of all time basically. The sheer number and scale of the crimes committed is daunting enough to feel like facing the Aegean stables as a task. However, he is forgetting one incredibly crucial thing. This is NOT like any other time in history. This is our litmus test in front of the world for Democracy itself. Without hyperbole the question of whether we truly act as a nation under the rule of law is very real right now.

    If the state of NY finds, as it almost certainly will, that a variety of crimes have been committed; many of which carry mandatory jail sentences and tries and sentences Donald Trump and his three eldest children and the Federal DoJ does NOTHING? Do you have ANY idea the level of distrust both domestically and internationally the US government would have after that? Look up the square root of a negative number and get back to us.

    You wouldn’t want David to be in power. Sounds like he lacks conviction and rocking the boat.
