  1. Nothing burger? Firing Comey for investigating Flynn is a nothing burger? Violating the Logan act is a nothing burger? Asking Russia to hack an opponents email a nothing burger? Hillary lost because she was incompetent but, to say that somehow means we should forget about this Russia issue, is ridiculous! I love your work Jimmy but, you need to get your head out of your ass on this one!

  2. I don't know? Trump was able to brush off a lot of shit — however, the Tax Plan as already (mostly) gone through. The Republicans don't need Trump anymore. They want Pence. So…who knows how this is going to go down?

  3. I don't think that Mueller is primarily looking into collusion at this point. I think there is something else going on. It just so happens to touch on Russian Ties. I'm almost wondering if there was some money laundering going on. It also seems a bit too thorough if nothing is going on.

  4. I can't understand how someone with obvious principles and a penchant for honest reporting can be associated with tyt.

  5. That is why I admire jimmy. He will always be behind the truth, even if it means that he has to agree with conservatives

  6. Jimmy Dore! I know you went all out saying the Russia thing was a hoax to cover for the DNC's failure, but even you at this point have to admit you were wrong. I, initially thought the same. But Flynn entered a plea deal. Do you really believe that Muller would have given Flynn this deal with everything he had on him. Flynn is giving Mueller the big fish for this plea. Come on Jimmy! You're smarter than this! And do you remember how long the Nixon investigation took? And you're basing your opinion based on an opinion piece? Come on man!

  7. What about all those people who get into this frenzy every time and every time nothing happens? THey must be going insane. If you actually believe all that stuff as if it was gospel you must think Putin has taken over the USA and nobody can do anything about it.

  8. Why would Trump even have to collude with the Russians? Why would he take such huge risks to become POTUS? He didn't need to take that job, he and his family are loaded for generations to come. If he had lost it would have been pretty embarrassing but that would be it. His career and wealth didn't depend on it.

  9. Podesta did not get in trouble… the clear bias of the "Bull Shit Russia Red Scare" only focuses on the "nothing burgers". The Hillary gang is up to their eye balls in the real thing. Does anyone ask why he was tapped and recorded?!

  10. #RussiaGate is the most immense #psyop ever run against not just the American citizenry, but against the world. Brought to us by the Dirty Cheating Losing Duplicitous Mafia Dems. Be careful how you vote.

  11. I Think the Sheep in America are happy with the Crap That the Floaters are doing And covering it up with Russia Because They think Someone will Fix it For Them NOT GOING TO HAPPEN

  12. HEY JIMMY DUMB BELL DORE IT WAS NEVER ABOUT COLLUSION IT WAS ABOUT HIM OBSTRUCTION THE INVESTIGATION OF COLLUSION. FLYNN IS GOING TO BRING THE WHITE HOUSE DOWN. BE PATIENT JIMMY. ACT LIKE YOU BEEN HERE BEFORE.

  13. It's pretty clear that Mueller and team are exploring obstruction charges, which is why Flynn pled to what he did, because it supports an obstruction charge. I agree with Jimmy on Russiagate though. There's never been any real evidence that Trump colluded with Russia. IF Trump gets brought down on anything, it will obstruction of justice, which is why his lawyers are trying to claim that a president cannot obstruct justice. I guess they forget that obstruction was the charge that brought down Nixon.

  14. Jimmy,you need to quit choking on trumpsterdumpsters cock and realize that the russian narrative is actually true…

  15. I think you're really starting to gain some traction. I'm noticing a HUGE INFLUX of BOTS on your youtube channel. People are getting paid to muddy the waters, get us to lose focus and stop from paying attention to the real issues!

  16. People do get too confused by the Republican conspiracy bullshit, Jimmy. Trump has committed many crimes. He will most definitely be charged by Mueller for at least one of them. They seek to confuse by doing many outrageous crimes at once.

  17. These distractions nicely take the corporate medias' focus from the lies , bribes, war profiteering, privacy invasion , unconstitutional Federal reserve and I.R.S. , incorporation of America, the Franklin scandal, the Kennedy assassination, 9-11 , failed petrodollar, C.I.A., Net neutrality, etc.

  18. Jimmy Dore – a moron of the highest order. Your idiotic "Russia is a nothing burger" claim is right up there with your claim that Dems would not allow Trump his pick for SCOTUS. Did that work out better for you or Neal Gorsuch? Flynn pleads guilty. Manafort violates his bail, back in home confinement. Commerce Sec'y Wilbur Ross shell companies have 31% stake in Navigator, a shipping company with Russian ties, Russian oil interests which probably Putin controls. Navigator stake is worth over $176 million. Betsy DeVoss (Sec'y of Educat.) brother Erik Prince (Blackwater mercenary group founder) met with Kirill Dmitriev, CEO of Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), a $10 billion sovereign wealth fund created by Russian gov't in 2011. (Erik Prince story was reported in The Intercept, one of Dore's favorite publications, right?) These little tidbits are a tiny fraction of the evidence in a larger story being assembled by Mueller and his team. "Collusion" may not be proved but other transgressions likely will be. Even with email statement from former deputy National Security adviser K.T. McFarland, “If there is a tit-for-tat escalation, Trump will have difficulty improving relations with Russia which has just thrown U.S.A. election to him.” it is very hard to show definitive quid pro quo but the amount of smoke is suffocating.
    Putin/Russia is the most extreme embodiment of the evil that Bernie Sanders has been railing against his whole political career. Putin has sucked dry the wealth of the Russian people and consolidated it amongst a small elite which he controls. His wealth has been estimated to be north of $220 billion, making him the wealthiest man in the world, I think. He has done this by brutal suppression of opponents and critics, including murder by various means. It's so disturbing that Dore and his ilk think this is just fine. This is worse than Republicans giving Roy Moore a pass for molesting children. Oh yeah, there's no "proof", right?

  19. Hey, Jimmy The Moron. Have you done any hit pieces lately on Joy Reid? I think you're slacking and your white supremacist, KKK fans are pining for their Old Jimmy so they can post their misogynistic and vile racist comments about Reid, who is constantly irritating them with her thorough attacks on Trump and his gang of weasels. Remember choice comments like this?: "You tell em Jimmy. Tell that bitch ass wanna be house nigga coon establishment puppet she has no real voice in the conversation my guy". I could post more like that but YouTube, understandably, censors too much extreme vitriol…. although they don't seem to mind fairly compact occurrences of similar posts by various authors. Curious….
    Don't neglect your David Duke/Richard Spencer base Jimmy. They are so proud of you.

  20. The Watergate investigation began in earnest in February 1973, and within months they had uncovered a whole lot of suspicious activity. They knew about the secret tapes by July, dammit! If there was anything to the collusion story, we'd know it by now. They are wasting our time and money with this.

  21. You know what I find hysterical? That somebody that is so far left as Jimmy Dore and his fans and followers are that it's them who are actually defending Trump in all of this. It's mind-boggling that this is so fucking obvious that even someone on the far left sees the bullshit that's going on. I'm not insulting leftists but it does sound like that I am because basically I think most of them are a bunch of fucking idiots to be honest but. Period. From my perspective as a conservative, not a republican by the way, I believe that leftists are diluted and really don't have their brains on too tight they want to see this country run down the path of Venezuela from what I can tell. But when even leftists are getting this and seeing what the fuck is going on and that Hillary Clinton is a fucking criminal and Donald Trump didn't do any of the shit they're accusing him of it's just kind of astounding to me that there's such a large portion of the United States that's too fucking politically biased to accept the reality that Trump didn't do the shit that Hillary did.

  22. Jimmy I love to see you do something on the ndaa of 2012 when basically Obama sold this country out and dismantled our constitutional rights for the sake of Corporations we are just now seeing the fruits of that bill begin to take pay Oregon begin to ripen basically and they didn't build those FEMA camps at a couple million dollars a pop 600 of them across the country just to look at them because they fit in good with the scenery countries in trouble somebody needs to wake him up I have no platform but you do love to see it

  23. Jimmy Dore I would love to see you do something on the ndaa of 2012 when Obama literally sold this country's out took our constitutional rights for the sake of Corporations and nobody seems to know about it he did it in the middle of the night while everyone was celebrating New Years but nobody knows about it I have no platform I'm just one person you've got a giant platform love to see you do something on that keep up the good work

  24. If this is all a nothing burger why is there so much lying coming from the Trump admin? I at first thought that they would just not want to cooperate with any investigation, but the repeated amount of lying and twitter self-incrimination is getting ridiculous. I actually think that Trump is the best thing to happen to the progressive movement in a long time. His election definitely helped me tune in to the lies of the Democratic Party. However, as much comedy and awarness he provides, in an odd way, I do not think the president is above the law. I say this because there are definitely a lot of questions that need answering, and Muellers beginning to probe Trumps Deutsche Bank connections. The emails and manipulating the election most likely a nothing burger. Trump money laundering, that maybe not so much. All that being said, hopefully there is a god because we will need him if Pence becomes the President.

  25. Who's more corrupt in Congress between the Republicans and the Democrats? “When comparing criminal indictments of those serving in the executive branch of presidential administrations it's so lopsided as to be ridiculous. Yet all I ever hear is how corrupt the Democrats are. So why don't we break it down by president and the numbers.

    Obama (D) – 8yrs in office. zero criminal indictments, zero convictions and zero prison sentences. so the next time somebody describes the Obama administration as "scandal free" they aren't speaking wishfully, they're simply telling the truth.

    Bush, George W. (R) – 8yrs in office. 16 criminal indictments. 16 convictions. 9 prison sentences.

    Clinton (D) – 8yrs in office. 2 criminal indictments. one conviction. one prison sentence. that's right nearly 8yrs of investigations. tens of millions spent and 30yrs of claiming them the most corrupt ever and there was exactly one person convicted of a crime. Bill Clinton was never impeached.

    Bush, George H. W. (R) – 4yrs in office. one indictment. one conviction. one prison sentence. Reagan (R) – 8yrs in office. 26 criminal indictments. 16 convictions. 8 prison sentences.

    Carter (D) – 4yrs in office. one indictment. zero convictions and zero prison sentences.

    Ford (R) – 2 1/2 yrs in office. one indictment and one conviction. one prison sentence. Pardoned Richard Nixon.

    Nixon (R) – 6yrs in office. 76 criminal indictments. 55 convictions. 15 prison sentences.

    Johnson (D) – 5yrs in office. zero indictments. zero convictions. zero prison sentences.

    So, let’s see where that leaves us. In the last 53 years Democrats have been in office for 25 of those years while Republicans held it for 28.

    In their 25 yrs in office Democrats had a total of three executive branch officials indicted with one conviction and one prison sentence. that's one whole executive branch official convicted of a crime in two and a half decades of Democrat leadership.

    In the 28 yrs that Republicans have held office over the last 53 yrs they have had a total of…(a drum roll would be more than appropriate),… 120 criminal indictments of executive branch officials. 89 criminal convictions and 34 prison sentences handed down.

    That's more prison sentences than years in office since 1968 for Republicans. If you want to count articles of impeachment as indictments (they aren't really but we can count them as an action), both sides get one more. However, Clinton wasn't found guilty while Nixon resigned and was pardoned by Ford. so those only serve to make Republicans look even worse.

  26. Jimmy is an absolute fucking spurdo if he doesn't realize that all charges against Papadopoulos, Manafort, Gates and now Flynn are lesser charges in that have been bargained down from heavier charges that could have easily landed these men in prison for the rest of their lives. Flynn and his son were both facing 60+ year sentences pre-plea deal. This evidence alone is proof of high crimes. In regards to the collusion investigation that has also been proven true, because the FBI have proven that thanks in part to Papadopoulos's cooperation from his plea agreement. Meanwhile, Manafort was still in direct contact with high ranking Russian officials, by his own admission by co-authoring a Pro-Russian Propaganda Op-Ed Article aimed at Ukraine. At this time he has broken his agreement with the judge for bond sentencing by having direct communications with Russians while wearing an ankle monitor and being under house arrest. He has clearly proven his loyalty to whom he serves and it's not the United States.

    Flynn, on the other hand wasn't just a regular diplomat working with Turkey on domestic or regional issues. He was bribed with millions of dollars by Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to secure the kidnapping of Fethullah Gülen a political enemy, who by the way, while not a U.S. citizen has legitimate permanent resident alien status. These actions from Flynn are without a doubt amount to treason and violate the 4th amendment, but Jimmy's vulgar hatred for Hillary; who by all means was a horrible candidate and yet managed to win the popular vote is the bad guy in this scenario. So-called "Progressives", like Jimmy Dore, Harry HA Goodman, and the rest of these knuckle-dragging shitheads are the reason why Trump has ammo to go after the truth and turn it into "Fake News". Ron Placone is also insinuating that just because the FBI is taking it's time to investigate Trump that somehow implies the investigation is without merit. Bullshit! it took nearly two and a half years for the FBI to investigate Silk Road Marketplace. Was that investigation also without merit by you're fucking "wood-chopping" standards. Sam Seder was absolutely right Jimmy is a moron and a liar.

    P.S. Jimmy – Pasta Puttanesca is not a Russian dish you shithead, It's Italian you dumbfuck!

  27. The rich pay almost all of the taxes in the US.
    So a tax cut is always going to help the rich.
    There's nothing wrong with that.

  28. Get the fuck outta here Jimmy. Flynn’s plea deal is not a nothing burger. Muller will soon indict Kushner and Trump Jr. I swear I don’t know how people buy your bullshit.

  29. Hillary Clinton’s BIG_LIE is on plan, now they further the disgust at those corrupt Russians by banning them from the Olympics. Next
    it will be the World Cup, and finally when they overthrow Putin, there will be an army of volunteers who will have no problem putting the excess Russians in the gas chamber, to get the population down to Madeline Albright’s preferred number of less than 10 million. Should far fetched? What so far about Hillary’s Mein Kampf’ian BIG_LIE differs from the 1930’s Nazi dehumanisation of Jews? Watch say, Rachael Maddow, or listen to John McCain, each time they say ‘Russian’, imagine they said ‘Jew’ – if that doesn’t shock you to the core, you might be a volunteer.. – unless of course Putin survives, and Trump hands over the conspirators to stand trial for Crimes against Humanity – good luck then.

  30. Totally, I expected something like Flynn doing some nefarious dealing with Russia, turns out they had the entire conversation, and there was nothing in it except that he 'misremembered' or lied about one particular conversation with that ambassador. Pretty sad stuff!
