  1. Romans 3:23 King James Version (KJV)

    23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    You mean to tell me your sin is less then his? From Gods vantage point all sin is equally bad does not matter what it is, look in the mirror people.

  2. MSNBC has been facing conspiracy theories for sometime now… it was just a game of playing law and order and really brilliant at it too

  3. "He prayed with the Pope over sexual abuse".That in itself is just wrong given that the Catholic Church has the most Paedophiles in history as well as the most sexual abuse claims ever……..

  4. ya it’s about Time the BIG boy WEALTHY Players! 👉 💸pay 💰🏦💰for their SIC Behavior! Follow the EPSTEIN trail….$👯‍♀️

  5. Bill Barr says? Bill Barr’s explanation of what happened is a fairy tale – no cameras to prove Epstein tied a bedsheet around his neck then broke his neck jumping off the top bunk then with a.broken neck, paralyzed, was able to reposition himself into a ice comfy kneeling position.

    Magical! Some real Voodoo stuff went down Bill!

  6. Why for just one year?
    All Democratic Nations have no time limit on Minors especially who were abused for the very reasons given. It takes them years to get the courage to come out.

  7. America has gone down the toilet. It's no longer a Democracy. Accountability, Checks and Balances have FAILED! Trump's men control all of the power in this Country.

  8. Time to invoke the 25th Amendment, Trump has Barr doing his dirty work and compromising democracy and justice.

  9. this hole thing is about transfer of wealth, these lawyers are the ones profiteering by letting these perverts do what they do til its time to cash in, no one should be able to profit from crime.

  10. TRUMP sends BARR to the prison- BARR leaves prison and guards, camera off and Epstein is DEAD and now BARR to investigate? OK— sure! –Next to TRUMP – NIXON was boy scout! At least Nixon just committed a robbery and cover up. Now TRUMP is murdering people who can keep him from getting re- elected. LUCKY ! Stormy was dealing with Michael Cohen the fixer than BARR the fixer

  11. Barr is like Trumps hand picked Sniper. Whenever some incriminating or damning material against the President surfaces he's on the scene trying to destroy it.

  12. The US legal system has NEVER been uniform/just, Epstein is only one case. Trump Rep. politized fed. courts to weaponize laws; Barr/Trump/Rep undermine the Constitution/national security, law/justice IS a Red/Blue thing. The US legal system is filtered through societal bias, money/power /race, not rules of law/justice.

  13. Barr needs to be in prison for treason against humanity his father was the ones who started this SO called, man.

  14. I think it's time to talk about Bret Kavanaugh again.. can't wait until trumPutin is out and we can wipe him from history, except for his tweets, as a reminder of what not to do! He's gonna have the bestest, bigly embarrassing presidential library EVER.

  15. Bill Barr killed Epstein!!! Now he wants to investigate…who???
    What type of rope did Epstein used in hanging himself???
    The dude was strangled as soon as Barr left his cell…and they hung his body on the rope to stage and make it look like it's suicide.
    Barr one day trump will leave office and you will have no one to protect you….you're trump fixer right

  16. He broke his neck bones all by himself, nothing to see here, Barr's daddy hired Epstein for his "qualifications" folks, ahhh "These are not the droids your looking for?"

  17. No American with ANY common sense trust William Barr to do ANY Lawful work. Barr is a Trump fixer and flunky. He is involved for one purpose Only and we ALL know what that is—-COVER UP A CRIME.

  18. Ari? “Bone,” not, “bones,” in his neck. Words matter. “Bones,” would mean murder. One bone, the hyoid, is rare but does happen in suicides. Your misquotes could add to conspiracy theories

  19. It's a good change to the law. But the 365 day limit is silly. Similar (not identical) thing was done in Australia. But here there's a 10 YEAR window, with the end date to be reviewed toward the end. This recognises the time it takes for victims of this particular class of crime to come forward.

  20. … and the lies just keep on spewing from Donald J. tRump – America's 1st FASCIST RACIST DICTATOR ! And then there's Moscow Mitch – tRump's favorite .itche next to Barr & Kelly Ann Conway that is… and don't forget Fox's darling – F.cker Carlson. Add to this group of dysfunctional tRump kissers – Ken like in Cuccinelli – the current USA's immigration 'parent snatching' anti-science guru. Cautionl – if the current scenario does not change, expect yet another FALSELY ELECTED dotus in 2020 and a lot WORSE – lets face it – tRump is an evil egotistical tyrant leading the US down a path of hateful mindless self destruction.

  21. Attorney General foreskin investigating a murder done for to trump and Clinton and so many other people of power. I'm of the belief that there are so many guns and chemists in this country that it's time for a whopping dose of vigilante justice!

  22. Intersting….. do we know any other public figures that have been credibly accused? (Hint: create a distraction now, donnie!)

  23. Dahlia Lithwick has been my favorite legal reporter for years. While her televised appearances are great, they pale in comparison to her writings. She consistently brings legal AND moral clarity to the issues, breaking down the arguments on each side objectively in a way that makes complex legal cases understandable to those outside of the legal profession. Good to hear she's been recognized and honored for her deserving work! Also gratifying to see someone authentic like Dahlia who are humble and genuinely nice–REAL people. More of these such people, less people like the Mooch, please, media!

  24. Say what you will about B.S. Barr, he's an amazingly quick worker–in no time at all, he's transformed DOJ into the Department of Jokes!

  25. Barr "un-recuses" himself to take over Epstein case, mysteriously visiting Epstein in prison, shortly after which Epstein dies in Barr's DOJ custody. Pure coincidence seems out of the question; given the reputation Barr's made for himself, we're instead left to ponder just what kind of hit job Assassination Goon B.S. Barr did on Epstein.

  26. Merriam-Webster updating their dictionary to include new definition for 'Republican.' "A hypocritical regressive racist obstructionist who doesn't need a reason when treason is in season."

  27. Looking into the Trump Administration and Crime Organization is like opening a can of worms, the stench one of overwhelming corruption throughout that becomes only more unbearably sickening with each passing day. Where does it stop? It doesn't, and it won't, because they can't!

  28. The death of their former friend Epstein, a potential incriminating witness against them, a bridge too far for the Toxic Trumpster and his Assassination Goon, B.S. Barr? House Judiciary Republicans FINALLY coming to their senses? We'd like to have some hope…

  29. Trusting Biggest Loser with our economy? Now, what could go wrong with a failed grifter who couldn't get a loan anymore, except by laundering dirty Russian mafia money?

  30. Really anxious to know…how many more Traitor Trump terrorist attacks against Americans before we put him someplace safe so no one else gets hurt?

  31. President Trump: "We have racist Republican traitors INVADING America, SLAUGHTERING and KILLING Americans! If we had a proper AG and Senate, we wouldn't have to work so much harder impeaching the head of their KLAN, and it would be a lot safer and a lot better! These are rough, rough people in many cases, and if they're allowed to permeate our society, only larger and bigger, we will have EMBOLDENED these people, and they will DESTROY America!"

  32. Is the prime focus of this new FBI task force focusing on white nationalist / supremacist / neo-Nazi terrorist hate groups going to be their current prime enabler, instigator and de facto leader, President Trump? Otherwise, won't that task force just be fighting a losing battle?

  33. There are a few rumors as to why tRump's wing man, Epstein, was kicked out of Mar-a Lago. 
    I really think he got thrown out of Mar-a-Lago because he hit on Fat Donny's girl friend…Ivanka. .

  34. Barr knows exactly what the facts are surrounding the dezth of their friend Epstein. No need for your investigation Barr. Please Barr you corrupt lying heartless self from this issue.

  35. Blah, blah, blah, elevating another group to a protected status that is already supposed to have equal righrs. They can't or won't uphold the law so they pass another law they won't uphold, especially at the highest levels.

  36. Melania where is your gut. Melania we saw your nude model photographs from eastern Europe. Melania who did you know, Brunel or Epstein or Maxwell? Melania knows a lot. Reports should dig far back.

  37. Bill Barr has to make sure that no1 finds out that Trump was behind Epstein's murder. Barr's gonna try & frame some1… u watch!!

  38. Barr covering up for President Trump seems to be part of the Republican "protect the rich and powerful at all costs" dynamic that kept deeply guilty Epstein free from serving a jail sentence.

  39. Turkic Khazars ~ 1.71% of the USA population. Epstein = Khazar. Barr = Khazar. Rosen = Khazar. Horowitz = Khazar. Wray = Khazar. Dershowitz = Khazar. Rothschild = Khazar. Sampson (Medical Examiner) = Khazar. Still believe we will get to the bottom of Epstein's "suicide", anytime soon???

  40. I hate barr as much as trump and mc connell. The republican party is just trash. What a mess America is in, laughed at all over the world. That is me being kind.

  41. No doubt Barr's 'plumbers' were in the Epstein properties ASAP and gathered the evidence and gave it to Barr; who is now the most powerful person on earth with the information he has on all these powerful and wealthy men.
    Would you really want to be in that position? Not I!

  42. What ever Barr says, know it's the other way around. Ari why do you always throw a rock at the other guys head, and then you say, "you have to run" You coward

  43. If an investigation of the Epstein death is to have any credibility, AG Barr cannot be anywhere near it. His handling of the release of the Mueller report was a travesty of justice. AG Barr cannot be trusted. His allegiance to trump is so strong that his independence is compromised.

  44. Straight up,…it is a major oversight by our judiciary committee to ignore proceeding with laws that allow them the power to strip all duties from a sitting district attorney.
    No single person should have enough power to influence a court case.
    Especially a case involving a possible impeachment.

  45. What Nixon did for people's trust in government is going to be nothing compared to Epstein's death being deemed without "foul play".

  46. MAKE IT SOUND GOOD BARR FROM THIS DAY FORWARD BUT LETS FORGET EPSTEIN PAST AND ALL THOSE SECRET NAMES , YOU TRUMPET SNAKE ,,,

  47. US Attorney General William Barr, who is responsible for the death of Jeffrey Epstein, has subsequently ruled that he wants to be informed about the Epstein case every three hours. After the first three hours: "He is still dead, sir!"

  48. William Barr should be disbarred from the legal professional. Thus not allowing him to be AG. The law society should take a serious look at the Federalist Society. A bunch of white supremacists.

  49. AH… the way she put it makes so much sense even a lawyer would have to admit it.. unless that lawyer were Bill Barr

  50. Attorney General Bill Barr's father Donald Barr was the headmaster at the Dalton prep school in upper Manhattan for 10 years.
    He hired Jeffrey Epstein in 1994 before he himself resigned in the summer of 1974.
    Jeffrey Epstein first taught as a physics and calculus instructor in the fall of 1974 even though he did not have a college degree..
    He was terminated in 1976.

  51. Barr should not be in the middle of the Congress businesses be a use DOJ are Congress are both independent branches of the American government. And as in the cases of any professional, the appearance does matter in the professional code of conducts. What Burr is doing as AG is completely in the violation of this code. He even shows up in the matter of Congress investigation for the sole purpose of defending Trump. Comletely he is corrupt. His initiative of starting investigation into the death of Epstein is 100% suspicious, in the fact that he visited Epstein the day before when he was not supposed to have any business with NY prison. He is the AG of the Federal justice system, not of NY justice system. Although he is eventually top of justice system, he personally should not have any business with Epstein in prison, UNLESS HE HAD TRUMP'S ORDER TO DO SOMETHING TO SILENCE EPSTEIN. Determined as a suicide but who helped Epstein end his life there?

  52. So much pointless speculation. Here is what cannot be denied: A simple phone call or 2 from Barr and/or Trump, and Epstein would have been under such insanely close scrutiny as to make it impossible for him to hurt himself or for anyone else to hurt him. Epstein was the most high profile, high risk for suicide or assassination prisoner since Oswald. The Trump WH was more aware of this than anyone on earth. What did they do? Nothing. This is the pure and simple truth of this. Either Trump and Barr are stupid and incompetent or they failed to act on purpose. That's it. Period.

  53. Only 365 days? Can someone killed others 20 years ago, and walk free after 365 days? No way! Crime is crime! Who is Barr trying to protect?

  54. Just read an article about the cellmate being innocent. A very curious picture in that the cellmate was shown in civilian clothes with his dog and the dog is aroused…i.mean wtf!

  55. I'm so tired of the saying or statement, Make whole again, there is no whole again, sexual abuse leaves scars that never heal, time is lost where wanting, needing, deserving wholesome relationships are just out if reach, due in part to shame, misunderstanding, public judgement, lawless power lies with the abuser and no amount of money or finally a small chance to see the abuser pay in some way, but only after they hot away with their acts.

    Then again some of them are products of abuse themselves.

    There is NO MADE WHOLE, just in small ways a bit if healing.

  56. Make it ok for your kids, our kids, the worlds kids to feel safe to come forward. Add it to the curriculum of our schools, in part, health, social studies, cultural studies.

  57. If you will NOTICE his clues from before…as he 'rubbed his neck in a specific manner' to give hints that he will be dead…related to his neck…..NY inside hitjob.

  58. fox and 8chan got everyone talking about murder but not about the people working for bill barr(and trump) that emptied out epsteins home safe and has photo's and video that doesnt need a person in court to give an admission of guilt.
    no money to follow with a hitman but plenty with physical evidence.
    i wanna know how close the guys that searched his house are to the white house and barr's aids. if those agents are maralago members before or after they searched the safe. stuff like that.
