  1. The Hammer is just about touching the head as all start to run for cover as fast as possible,Watergate was a paper seller,this one will be a tweeting cover as the swamp gets deeper,

  2. Hey MSNBC… Gotta tip regarding the Mueller investigation… Wait until it's over instead of talking about if, when, and where

  3. In the worlds most nationalistic flag-waving country being a traitor cost nothing, now they even have a club call the Republican party.

  4. Prosecutors have a sworn duty to indict and prosecute all criminals.
    No exceptions are indicated by the constitution. NONE!

  5. Robert Mueller is another "AMERICAN HERO" & should receive America's highest award for his work into the Russia meddling with the country most important office. TRUMP and his clans has to be brought to JUSTICE. HE & HIS ORGANIZATION IS "NOT" ABOVE THE LAW. THIS IS A BIG BLACK DANGEROUS WHALE TO BE CAUGHT.

  6. A Trump & Family Co – Conspiracy to Hold 40 Million Americans In A Trance Whilst They Turn America Into A Communist Country

  7. This picture is of a true, much beloved American hero, school kids will read about Mueller in history books as the man who brought America back from Putin’s invasion. 😊💙🇺🇸🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇳🇿

  8. I call the Trump affair "Waiting for Macbeth". Because of the mashup of Shakespeare and Beckett that seems to be worked into the Jackboxing dramatic elements of this ever unfolding story.

  9. I worry for Mr. Muellers safety. Mr. Melania likes to incite violence. Be safe Mr. Mueller, you and your team are Americas last hope of decency

  10. Is he talking to slow to dilute the already thin content? Who cares how Mueller looks like wearing a baseball cap?

  11. Most of the media outlets try very hard to provide accurate news coverage.  While they may not be perfect they aren't fake news like Donald Trump would have you believe.  When most of them have made errors they have also made a concerted effort to correct the mistake.  Like any information we read, hear, or watch, the responsibility lies with each of us to not blindly accept everything thrown at us.  We have a responsibility to trust, but verify the validity of the news we read, hear, or watch. Whereas, Donald Trump spreads misinformation and lies at will and many of his supporters appear to simply accept what he says at face value without verifying the validity of his statements.  It has been verified that Donald Trump has told more than 9,000 lies and half-truths since becoming president! There isn't anything that is more fake than a person who lies at will, tells half-truths and spreads misinformation! Donald Trump cries, "Fake News" whenever the news isn't flattering towards him even though the information is accurate.  By Donald Trump crying "Fake News" whenever he doesn't like the news, he is able to demean and delegitimize the value of the mainstream news media. Delegitimizing the news was a tactic used by Hitler and is used today by all of the totalitarian leaders such as Putin, Kim Jon-un, Xi Jinping, Donald Trump, and many others. When Lesley Stahle interviewed Candidate Donald Trump for 60 Minutes he kept attacking the press.  Below is Lesley Stahl's account of how the conversation with Donald Trump transpired when she called him on his constant attacks on the press.

    LESLEY STAHL: It's just me, my boss, and him — he has a huge office — and he's attacking the press. There were no cameras, there was nothing going on and I said, 'That is getting tired, why are you doing it? You're doing it over and over and it's boring. It's time to end that, you've won the nomination. And why do you keep hammering at this?'

    And he said: 'You know why I do it? I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so when you write negative stories about me no one will believe you.'

    The comment Donald Trump made to Lesley Stahl clearly demonstrates how he cries "Fake News" to discredit and demean legitimate news outlets so people like his supporters distrust the media.  Remember when Donald Trump stood before a group of people at one of his rallies and told them to not believe what they hear and what they read, but to only believe him? That is dictatorship 101 and a dangerous tactic used throughout history by the vilest dictators in the world.  It is dangerous to Democracy to blindly believe a leader without verifying the facts! Don't the American people owe it to themselves, to their ancestors who fought and died to keep America free, and to our Forefathers who bravely went to war against King George to bring freedom to America to trust but verify, the information being thrown at them, even when that information comes from the president?

    Our Forefathers created the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in their attempt to create the most perfect country in the world.  America isn't perfect but it is better than Donald Trump and deserves better than a man who would attack a deceased war hero and a man who spent his entire life in service to his country.  Our Forefathers created three branches of government to provide for a system of checks and balances so no one branch of government could become so powerful that it would be able to create a dictatorship.  Remember King George? Our Forefathers lived under the oppression of King George and they understood all too well what can happen to people who are forced to abide by a dictator or a King and they didn't want that for America.  Our members of Congress do not work for the president. Our members of Congress work for the American people and more importantly they are supposed to work to support the Constitution of the United States of America! Our members of Congress do not take an oath to the president when they are sworn into office, they take an oath to protect the Constitution against enemies, both foreign and domestic.  Since Senator John McCain swore an oath to protect and uphold the Constitution of the United States against enemies, both foreign and domestic it was his sworn duty to turn the Steele Dossier over to the FBI so the FBI could determine the validity of the claims in the Steele Dossier. John McCain had the courage and commitment to the country to uphold his oath of office and to uphold the Constitution.  In death, he is being demeaned, belittled, and ridiculed for doing exactly what our Forefathers expected our elected representatives to do for the greater good of the country! The president, the person who is most responsible for supporting the Constitution and who should be demanding that every elected official uphold the Constitution is attacking a deceased hero because he did his civic duty and placed Country ahead of a political party when he abided by his oath of office and supported the Constitution!

    Donald Trump is also attacking John McCain for not voting to repeal what the Republican party calls Obamacare and the rest of us know as the Affordable Care Act.  When Donald Trump says that John McCain betrayed him by voting against the bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act he is telling the American people a lie, and it is a lie because it is a half-truth.  Donald Trump uses a slogan; Promises Made, Promises Kept. Donald Trump made a promise to the American people to repeal and replace Obamacare with a cheaper, better healthcare program but the bill that John McCain voted against had ZERO provisions in it to replace Obamacare.  The bill that Donald Trump keeps complaining that John McCain voted against was a bill to REPEAL Obamacare with ZERO provisions to replace it. In fact, to this day, the Republican party has failed to introduce a bill to REPLACE Obamacare. The issue is that Donald Trump sees the act of a member of Congress who votes against a bill that he supports as being disloyal and a personal affront to him, when in reality it is the responsibility of every member of Congress to vote on bills based on what that person believes is in the best interest of the country and not based on party loyalty!  If members of Congress do what Donald Trump demands they do and rubber stamps bills he supports instead of voting their conscience, we no longer have three branches of government but instead have a dictatorship supported by a body of people rubber stamping the wishes of a supreme being and that is not the ideals that America was founded on!

    If the people who support Donald Trump were to disregard all the rhetoric and hype and take an honest look at Donald Trump they would see a man who behaves like a dictator because he wants to be a dictator and that is unAmerican!  Remember when Donald Trump had the members of his Cabinet go around the room and praise him, one by one? That is not what America is about and it certainly isn't what our Forefathers envisioned when they created the Constitution and the American government.  If you read about the history of the United States you will learn that our Forefathers vehemently argued and disagreed with each other. They did not and never would have even considered rubber stamping the desires of one man because that is exactly what they went to war to change.  Our forefathers could not agree on the Constitution and refused to sign the Constitution because they were deeply concerned about an all-powerful central government that would override the rights of the states and the rights of the individual. Our Forefathers refused to sign the Constitution until it included the Bill of Rights and the very first item in the Bill of Rights is freedom of the press!  Our Forefathers made freedom of the press the very first Amendment to the Constitution because it was of utmost importance to them because King George tried to stifle the press just like Donald Trump is trying to stifle the press. Our Forefathers understood that freedom of the press was, and is, critical to the survival of a nation based on democracy. Our Forefathers would never, ever, have supported a man like Donald Trump!

    Donald Trump is a traitor to America for failing to support the Constitution of the United States of America!

    Donald J. Trump is a poor person’s perception of what a rich person is, an ignorant person’s perception of what a smart person is, and a coward’s perception of what a hero is!

  12. Leave him alone. Last thing we need is for some nuts trumpPet to know where Robert Mueller is. Good Lord, let's keep him safe.

  13. Not impressed with Paparazzi trying to get pics of Mueller. Big deal. The guy's doing his job. Leave him alone.

  14. Why couldn't a designated spokesperson promise to give everyone 24 hour notice, or 48, or 52.6? Then they could all go to lunch. Lunch would be nice. Yeah! Let's do lunch. Wait…they might call. We better wait. Waiting is hard when you don't know. Why couldn't a designated spokes….

  15. Sorry but why even add to disseminating the photo and talk up the mystery of the location. Irresponsible and counterproductive. Security of these heroic and brave ppl far putweighs any negligible newsworthiness of covering this photo.

  16. Arch nemesis cartoon character Mr. Stone. Normal is breaking the law 24/7…mounting evidence or matters are not done cover up actions continue?
    (Good lawyers talk like Scooby Doo …Ugh…ratro).

  17. Trump is EVERYTHING that the right thought Obama would be …. Ignorant, uneducated, unfaithful, loud, unpatriotic ….. The GOP as a whole is pathetic

  18. This is the only new pic of him in what 2 .5 years? This guys an actual ghost.
    If I were Trump or involved in Trump’s sphere of influence I for one would be terrified.

  19. How about reporting some real news instead of this endless reporting on whether Mueller's report will come down today, tomorrow, next week, any second. The congress and American people are never going to see the report anyway. The white house will make sure of that. It is a non event.

  20. I would like to thank Ari, and all other news and journalists for their hard work in having to stay on top of reporting this travesty that has occurred in our nation and world. It is dizzying how corrupt and expansive the corruption has been and continues every day to be revealed. I appreciate the grind they have to endure and report to us. They all will deserve great vacations once the Occupiers are indicted and arrested and we can get on with taking care of the nation and the planet.

  21. Will a right thinking American remind Trump that the economy he is bragging about is a CONTINUUM of Obama's administration policies, it will be an injustice to blame any new President on the mess Trump is creating with his destruction of working practices which will soon manifest

  22. Ari, you are either constipated or propagandizing, your face is telling us it does not believe the words coming out of your mouth.

  23. "Mueller" is a Loser with capital L , and has NO charisma or Leadership skill , no success in Business or anything,, this is LAUGHABLE . And also this is Fake News and Trump is GREAT and has some FANTASTIC sons with Don jr and Eric there is no collusion the whole Russia thing is Bogus period

  24. Hi Ari.👋.
    Exceptional reporting, Ari.👍👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏.
    Keep on digging, Ari.👍.
    👉👉Patience democrats, patience.👍.

  25. JohnCook Australia 🇦🇺. I keep hearing a Beatles’ tune in my head . “It won’t be long , It won’t be long now “ Can’t remember the rest of it . Wonder if it is a premonition of something .. Repugnants how do feel ? Stupid I guess . You made a huge mistake in your choice and slowly but surely the penny is dropping that this blunder is stuffing the country. Are you proud of your accomplishments?

  26. Every day Muller waits is another day the Trump criminal family rules the USA. It’s irresponsible to keep waiting. On the other hand, Muller is a Republican, the party before country criminal organization, so my expectations are very low.

  27. What about Keith Schiller? mrtrumpers' bodyguard who left back in 2017. Shouldn't the committee's and Mueller be speaking to him?

  28. Ari DUDE! hahaaaa Love LOVE the rap drops! "Relax your mind and let your conscience be free and get down to the sounds of EPMD" Love the show but I got to admit, Im always holding for that rap lyric or reference!

  29. Barr is not trustworthy. Because he refuses to recluse himself, we can not trust any report he releases. Rosenstein needs to be left in charge of the report's release.

  30. trump bit off more that he could chew! however he's still trying to chew on it, You need to make him choke on it! he and his spawned filth.

  31. Hope, doesn’t”t look so hopeful. Why do you still have ten full time prosecutors ? Hella witch hunt

  32. The guy is, at this moment, one of the highest profile personality of the country, and he doesn’t even have a driver and a protection escort.

  33. Ari, Thanks for the update on Mueller's team. According to CNN, as of August 2018, the team included 15 attorneys and a support staff (about another 15). For me, the investigation will be over when we can know the White House is secure from foreign influence and organized crime.
    Of course, that might take more than removing Trump and his people. It will probably take overturning Citizen's United and getting rid of SuperPACs.

  34. Ari, the Samuel Beckett 'Godot' reference was unnecessary and shows you engaging in what trump has referred to as "grandstanding". You are better than that, you don't need to show that you are erudite, especially when it is at the expense of others.

  35. Currently known: 1 hearing and 2 trials pending:
    … March 27, Felix Sater to publicly testify to House Intel on Trump-Moscow project
    … July 2019 , Bijan Kian, Trump transition official, going on trial in Virginia for conspiracy and FARA violations
    … November 5, 2019, Roger Stone, unofficial Trump advisor, going on trial in D.C. for witness tampering, obstruction of justice, and lying to Congress

  36. A pic of Mueller is profoundly insignificant and has a paparazzi type of vibe. We all know what he looks like… I feel quite confident that he goes to work …

    Of course, we all are on pins and needles to see this process end and have the final product.

  37. Oh golly a repuke named Mueller produced a report to give to another repuke named Barr which will edit it for the iligitamate Looooon repuke who stunk the country up for last two years !

  38. Unfortunately, some should prepare for disappointment. It's obvious Trump is a criminal and has been most of his life but I doubt Mueller has the "smoking gun". Vote him out in 2020, America. It's the best you can do.

  39. 37 of your collegues get indicted???what???….isnt that is like being apart of an organized crime syndicate???….nope its a president of the US….that alone is enough to get that orange clown out…what were you doing in that class trump?????thats my question?

  40. Should be put in jail for not walking to work or driving an electric car. Less than 12 years until the planet end… remember?!?!

  41. Really hate this paparazzi style of reporting. Why violate Mueller's privacy like this? It concerns me that the MSM is doing this. It could put people working on this case in danger.

  42. 13:58 Betsy Woodruff is sure gonna be mad at her DOJ contact when she gets back from her weekend out of town…

  43. This closed captioning is really hard to follow.. Why not use just the normal style rather than try to mimic the scrolling newsreel..

  44. Mueller did prove that high ranking people in the WH was involved in the Russia probe, SDNY will as others continue the investigation ONLY BECAUSE IT WAS OUTSIDE MULLER'S SCOPE. There are several investigations still going on. What I think is funny is that tax payers DID NOT PAY THE 25 MILLION FOR MUELLER INVESTIGATION, IT WAS PAID BY ALL THE ASSESTS OF 27 MILLION THAT MUELLER GOT FROM MANAFORT AND OTHERS, LEAVING 2 MILLION LEFT THAT WASN'T USED. HAHAHAHA LMAO

  45. 14:25 "Although I'm gonna be out of town this weekend and my phone's probably not gonna be on most of the time…Hopefully Mueller doesn't pull a fast one."
    Mueller releases report hours before weekend starts.

  46. it should be a major goal for America to get rid of the electoral college. How can you possibly call it a fair democracy with that in place.
