      Indeed Trump is. It's too bad so many people have tied their sense of self worth to his (lack of) political success.

    I love how every episode has to insert sophomoric humor (humour to John), just to uphold its “comedy” take on real issues. It’s appreciated, but ultimately deceptive for the lower half below the average. It does get more people watching though, and that’s the point. Besides the generated wealth, it’s a relatively biased, but “more accurate than not” description of a certain social issue. It’s a fantastic program and Mr Oliver was a perfect choice for this show. I’ve watched every episode now, and do so with enthusiasm. I appreciate the content and the willingness to educate the masses whilst playing coy. Cheers

    John always comes with the truth. Amazing how these drumpf supporters always find a way to defend him, doesn’t it appear odd that you always have to defend him? A president saying he’s fucked because he’s being investigated. So much controversy around the elitist and racist. He is allowing America to be infiltrated by Russia, he is alienating allies and cuddling up to dictators like Putin and Kim jong un. He is a literal walking orange POS. Surprised nobodies taken him out yet.

    Trump's behaviour towards his daughter isn't romantic, it's sick and abusive. I can't imagine what it was like growing up with Donald Trump as your father who wants to have sex with you.

  • Baraz

    I hate Trump like any other reasonable person, but John it would be amazing if you looked at the facts concerning the said "Russian interference in US elections": you might find it quite funny, as in pathetic, funny insignificant in comparison to all the other forms of influence, marketing, etc. The obstruction of justice is real though.
    And why should I trust Mueller either, though he is far better than politicians for sure. The FBI and CIA has lied once in a while. Wasn't it a FBI director who purposefully made dubious claims about Clinton a few days before the elections on purpose? It is all spinning bullshit, self-serving or biased bullshit, whether it comes from the RNC, DNC, FBI, CIA, etc.

    "... and neither does "Vindicate" or "exonerate". As far as I remember, in American law you are INNOCENT until proven GUILTY. I have NEVER heard a judge say "You have been found vindicated", or "You have been found exonerated"!, which would suggest GUILTY until proven INNOCENT!

      The point of that particular bit Mueller wasn't allowed to directly say that Trump committed crimes due to DoJ guidelines, so he went out of his way to say it indirectly.

      wrong. firing Mueller is not a crime. nor would that obstruct the investigation. that's why they found nothing

    • Stephen2462
      Stephen2462 Month ago

      Obstructing an investigation is a crime in and of itself, regardless of what other crimes you've committed. And the fact they did strongly indicates they committed other crimes that they've managed to keep under wraps.

    It astounds me that you people still think there was any collusion when Putin can't even rig an election in his own country without getting caught.
    Also, here in America you're innocent until proven guilty. Trump doesn't need anyone to exonerate him.

  • Raman Deep Vashisht

    I used to get American updates from this channel 😅 but i think this channel is pretty biased too. Watching recent mueller testimony it now feels ironic. I think Mueller wasn't that much involved in investigation. If even Trump's sworn enemies can't find any conclusive evidence may be trump should be treated innocent unless proven guilty.
    Or Trump's enemies in bureaucracy and media are equally incompetent as Hillary. They are continuously losing to the man they call dumb and mentally challenged.
    It says a lot about trump opponents 😅

      He found pretty much everything needed for a conspiracy charge except proof of intent, likely due to the sheer amount of obstruction committed by the Trump administration. Said obstruction is more the enough to warrant impeachment by itself.
      Well you are supporting an authoritarian putting people in concentration camps. And the US's assorted white supremacists and neo-nazis DO support Trump. Granted, he's not gassing people yet but he is heading down that slippery slope.

    CrowdStrikeOut: Mueller’s Own Report Undercuts Its Core Russia-Meddling
    By Aaron Maté, RealClearInvestigations
    www.realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2019/07/05/crowdstrikeout_muellers_own_report_undercuts_its_core_russia-meddling_claims.html
    While the 448-page Mueller report found no conspiracy between Donald Trump's campaign and Russia, it offered voluminous details to support the sweeping conclusion that the Kremlin worked to secure Trump's victory. The report claims that the interference operation occurred "principally" on two fronts: Russian military intelligence officers hacked and leaked embarrassing Democratic Party documents, and a government-linked troll farm orchestrated a sophisticated and far-reaching social media campaign that denigrated Hillary Clinton and promoted Trump.
    But a close examination of the report shows that none of those headline assertions are supported by the report’s evidence or other publicly available sources. They are further undercut by investigative shortcomings and the conflicts of interest of key players involved:
    1-The report uses qualified and vague language to describe key events, indicating that Mueller and his investigators do not actually know for certain whether Russian intelligence officers stole Democratic Party emails, or how those emails were transferred to WikiLeaks.
    2- The report's timeline of events appears to defy logic. According to its narrative, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange announced the publication of Democratic Party emails not only before he received the documents but before he even communicated with the source that provided them.
    3- There is strong reason to doubt Mueller’s suggestion that an alleged Russian cutout called Guccifer 2.0 supplied the stolen emails to Assange.
    4- Mueller’s decision not to interview Assange - a central figure who claims Russia was not behind the hack - suggests an unwillingness to explore avenues of evidence on fundamental questions.
    5- U.S. intelligence officials cannot make definitive conclusions about the hacking of the Democratic National Committee computer servers because they did not analyze those servers themselves. Instead, they relied on the forensics of CrowdStrike, a private contractor for the DNC that was not a neutral party, much as “Russian dossier” compiler Christopher Steele, also a DNC contractor, was not a neutral party. This puts two Democrat-hired contractors squarely behind underlying allegations in the affair - a key circumstance that Mueller ignores.
    6- Further, the government allowed CrowdStrike and the Democratic Party's legal counsel to submit redacted records, meaning CrowdStrike and not the government decided what could be revealed or not regarding evidence of hacking.
    7- Mueller’s report conspicuously does not allege that the Russian government carried out the social media campaign. Instead it blames, as Mueller said in his closing remarks, "a private Russian entity" known as the Internet Research Agency (IRA).
    8- Mueller also falls far short of proving that the Russian social campaign was sophisticated, or even more than minimally related to the 2016 election. As with the collusion and Russian hacking allegations, Democratic officials had a central and overlooked hand in generating the alarm about Russian social media activity.
    9- John Brennan, then director of the CIA, played a seminal and overlooked role in all facets of what became Mueller’s investigation: the suspicions that triggered the initial collusion probe; the allegations of Russian interference; and the intelligence assessment that purported to validate the interference allegations that Brennan himself helped generate. Yet Brennan has since revealed himself to be, like CrowdStrike and Steele, hardly a neutral party -- in fact a partisan with a deep animus toward Trump.
