We’ll remember the Republicans who didn’t support Trump: Dhillon

Republican National Lawyers Association vice president and 2020 Trump advisory council member Harmeet Dhillon discusses …


  1. Most things start at the top, not the bottom. These old politicians can’t even form words correctly.

  2. Ms. Sawyer, I believe that you do not know specific details of the case. However, your mistake was your failure to be involved immediately upon arrival of such a high profile individual. You should be at the cell for his arrival, overseeing your staff making sure they've got their shit together…double checking everything to make sure the ship is tight. That is where you failed Ms. Sawyer.

  3. Ms Hirono this is supposed to be about Epstein. You've gotten your federal money open halfway houses. On each island. Where are you spending the .money you receive for your Democratic state?

  4. Also notice not one Democrat has asked about Epstein. Only Republicans have asked where the hell this investigation is at. That's because a lot Dems are involved in his death

  5. Lmao drones dropping off contraband. Are you setting that up so you can try to say maybe Epstein was given contraband to kill himself?

  6. Every inmate should be put into classes to get their high school diploma and getting degrees or trade classes. So when they leave prison they have some kind of education to use to get jobs. Obviously I'm not talking about rapists and murderers, I'm talking about non violent criminals.

  7. SHUT UP FEINSTEIN when someone is talking. Give Durbin the respect to speak without you chatting and coughing into the mic while speaking.

  8. Whyy is this the only channel I can find the whole thing ?!

  9. where was the mainstream media when Uncle Eppy was given a "get out of jail free" card by, Acosta?

  10. Barr's transparent ploy to close the books on the Epstein "suicide" and make it all go away, didn't go over too well so he now scurries to find scapegoats. if The DOJ really cared about JUSTICE they'd have aksed Acosta UNDER OATH, "who told you that epstein was "intellegence" and to "leave it alone?" …… it's called OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE and it's a serious crime…. our entire government is corrupt and evil.

  11. Best part of this is how they over amd over emphasized how they "Program Prisoners" not rehabilitate them…help them… educate them… train them… teach them… no they "PROGRAM" them.

    Most cannon statement ever made about how the prison system really works, wake up and smell it America.

  12. She knows what happened because she is part of this cover-up to protect those high profile and powerful scumbags who were in criminal activity or just they are animals.

  13. They are questioning the wrong people. It appears they don't want answers.

  14. Diane is in need of retirement.. This has nothing to do with JE.

  15. Aunt Bea has a tough row to hoe here…😰

  16. Epstein is in witness protection, any idiot can see that. No cameras, then cameras, no photos, now arrests of two patsy guards who apparently slept on duty…riiiiiiiiiiiighttttt💩🐂

  17. Why is Grandma not going home and bake a cake or cook a soup. Maybe that is working better.

  18. Can we STOP saying Epstein and him RAPING “women” they were & Are CHILDREN still being Raped. His island isn’t shut down, nor his other homes. Drones show well kept the facilities are still in tack!

  19. GREAT points Senators Mr Durbin!
    Thank you.
    We need to offer the root of the problem Trauma.
    Broken homes, fatherless boys, youth, men & then dads themselves without the proper Tools & education to accomplish these unstoppable progressions through life.
    Live is hard with role models, good school districts, adequate resources, healthy food ect

    Fathers MATTER. Positive Guidance & reachable Dreams are NECESSARY ✊🏾👨🏾‍🏭👨🏾‍🏫👨🏾‍🎓👮🏿‍♂️👨🏽‍🎨👨🏾‍🔧👨🏿‍🚀👨🏾‍✈️🤵🏾🏃🏽‍♂️🕺🏽👨🏿‍💻👨🏾‍💼

  20. "We don't want People like that…
    .. We want rid of those….
    We want them gone, one way or another
    even by prosecution or termination."

    Wait what will happen to Tova Noel and Michael Thomas in jail.

  21. I wanna see his dead body. I bet he is getting a facelift and getting back to his usual m.o.

  22. High profile inmate "commits suicide" in federal prison, and the director of federal prisons is sitting right in front of you.
    Said inmate is connected to powerful figures and potentially trafficked women and could have been a key witness in getting answers.
    Senator Hirono: What about Hawaii? Tell me about what you're doing for Hawaii? did you know Hawaii has many islands?
    Get back on topic, lady. There are more important matters at hand and you can talk about Hawaii with her all you want after this.

  23. This lady is sharp and I notice everyone is very respectful of her except that one douche who said the victims' justice is her obligation concerning Epstein.

  24. Not one Democrat asked about Epstein.

  25. Dr. Baden said it couldn't have been suicide because of the bones in his neck were broken. No one will take the heat on this and solve who killed him. No doubt, the government was glad he was killed, a man who knew too much.

  26. Females should work in a womens prison and males should work in a male prison. Problem solved!!

  27. This was way more informative and professional than the stupid impeachment hearings. I at least get to see how a hearing should be conducted and people doing their jobs. It was also comforting that there are some in DC that don't adhere to the narrative that @pstein died by suicide.

  28. Is this a joke. seriously time is always short and the subject matter isnt focused, our system is sad let along rigid. PEACE

  29. 🍀🍀 don’t worry prince Andrew will fix it with his non-sweaty balls 🍀🍀 You got to remember 🎤 he’s a dancing king … he only likes then if they are 17….😂😂

  30. "lll-Gotten Gains, The Rockefeller War on Drugs" By Jean Carter
    How the Rockefellers turned the United States and other countries into police states"

  31. "The U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday 11-19-2019 approved
    legislation to avert a widespread government shutdown later this week
    with a bill extending temporary federal funding through Dec. 20, 2019"
    US House of Representatives has quietly reauthorized the PATRIOT Act,
    extending warrantless surveillance, data collection, tracking internet
    use and other invasive means to combat “terror.”" <> DISTRACTED
    MUCH ?

  32. Another chapter of the sitcom.

  33. Sleeping on the job and not reporting malfunctioning cameras is part of our policies, so we have only changed it minimally. You can only sleep for 1.5 hours now, instead of 1.6. And only five of 100 cameras need to work. Grrrr

  34. This is one of the clearest cut cases of suicide I've ever seen. You people are either ignorant or crazy.

    If they really wanted to look at a conspiracy they should look at Whitey Bulger's death. That's a real conspiracy.

    But everything indicates 100% that Epstein killed himself. Period.

  35. Two guards are being prosecuted. They'll probably commit "suicide" while they're in jail too

  36. She's a liar,Clinton suicide hanging like others,guards disappear or fell asleep ,check their bank accounts,bill Clinton walks away a free pedophile out to roam on your children and there's nothing we can do about it

  37. Only USA today is covering this. Our media is a joke. We don't trust the main stream media nor the political and rich the protect.
