Finally, the Dems are taking a cue from Turtle McConnell and simply changing the rules to get their own way.

McConnell is a swamp creature of the highest order, but Trumpophiles love him. Hypocrisy anyone?

0 ( +7 / -7 )

Complete and total exoneration?

Why hide the full report then?

Seems like the Democrats have a new plan every week. They just keep dumbing down the country into believing Trump did something horrible. Pretty soon they will want to impeach him over his golf score.

It is pretty funny when you think about it. Post Mueller report, so what’s the plan now? They don’t even know ans they’re running out of ideas fast. All of this is so whacked and far fetched and overreached. Let them try and wasted their time, I guarantee you they’ll lose a bunch of seats next year.

Amazing! I will give Trump one thing... He is right, he could stand in the middle of the street and shoot someone and he wouldn't lose and supporters... What does that say about his supporters? Anyway lets listen to a voice mail between Trumps attorney and Flynns… https://www.msn.com/en-us/video/news/voicemail-from-trumps-attorney-to-flynns-lawyer-released/vi-AACuUVl?ocid=spartanntp

Good. Force the felons to appear in the dock and answer questions. Don't let Donnie and his minions cover-up and further obstruct justice.

Expose the fifth..

Good. Force the felons

Felons? You need to be convicted of a crime first, thank God our system doesn’t allow vigilante justice.

to appear in the dock and answer questions. Don't let Donnie and his minions cover-up and further obstruct justice.

Obstruct? Over 2 years, 19 angry Democrats, 40 FBI agents, 500 witnesses, 500 subpoenas over a million given documents. Trump and his administration were more exposed than an egg in the hot sun.

19 angry Democrats

Trump supporters sure need their cliches to hang an argument on.

Bottom line. They don't care if their man obstructed justice, as long as their team wins. Pathetic.

Now if liberals had a bit of humor....

Bottom line. They don't care if their man obstructed justice, as long as their team wins. Pathetic.

No, we care, that’s why we’re ok with Mueller’s results as dirty as he was, but still wondering why Hillary is walking free,

-1 ( +6 / -7 )

The Democrats are a total mess. No clue, no plan, and most of all no vision for the country. Even Bernie is looking sillier by the day.

Yep, that supposed Russian intelligence guy Kilimnik....actually a US State Department intelligence source going back to 2013.

Muller had the documents that showed this yet chose to call him someone who is known “to have ties to Russian intelligence,” to push a false narrative instead of mentioning he is actually a US source. He even visited the USA twice in 2016 to brief the State Department on what he was doing.

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

why dont the Dems subpoena THIS?

https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/447394-key-figure-that-mueller-report-linked-to-russia-was-a-state-department

So Kilimnik’s delivery of the peace plan to the Trump campaign in August 2016 was flagged by Mueller as potentially nefarious, but its earlier delivery to the Obama administration wasn’t mentioned. That’s what many in the intelligence world might call “deception by omission.”

Democrats unveil new strategy...

I can't wait to see the Democrats' new strategy after they lose the House in 2020.

They are in panic mode now that Mueller Time is over and now it's time to pay the Barr tab.

McConnell is a swamp creature of the highest order, but Trumpophiles love him

Not me! I'd like to see him voted out. But not in favor of a Democrat ( unless the Democrat has some integrity ), I'd like to see him ousted in the next primary by another Republican.

Obstruct? Over 2 years, 19 angry Democrats, 40 FBI agents, 500 witnesses, 500 subpoenas over a million given documents. Trump and his administration were more exposed than an egg in the hot sun

Heck, they were probed more than someone abducted by aliens.

Put Barr behind bars. He is politicizing the DOJ and trying to usurp the Constitution.

Traitor to the rule of law!

Lmao! Logic failure.

If Mueller's dirty, then why didn't he nail Donny with some manufactured evidence.

Logic failure. Being a Russian intelligence guy and a State Department source are not mutually exclusive. Hilarious.

Put Barr behind bars.

Why? For going against the entrenched establishment? Oh, the horror!

He is politicizing the DOJ and trying to usurp the Constitution.

Ok and the Democrats politicized and weaponized the intelligence agency to usurp a duly elected sitting President, but that’s ok, right?

Traitor to the rule of law!

So all the Democrats should be fired.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

If Mueller's dirty, then why didn't he nail Donny with some manufactured evidence.

Easy answer, because EVEN with 19 angry Democrat voter lawyers and 40 FBI agents, they couldn’t even manufacture a crime and get to stick to the President...because there wasn’t any crime.

Failed once again.

No, it a right wing conspiracy theory.

Completely and utter logic failure. You don't need an actual crime to manufacture a crime, which is what a dirty cop would do. Oh, I get it; Mueller is dirty, but not dirty enough to manufacture a crime. Beyond hilarious.

I can't wait to see the Democrats' new strategy after they lose the House in 2020.

Yea, just like they did in 2018...

They are in panic mode now that Mueller Time is over and now it's time to pay the Barr tab.

Panic? Don't see any Democrats tweeting about Cher and Bette Midler...some "stable genius"...

McConnell is a swamp creature of the highest order, but Trumpophiles love him

Not me! I'd like to see him voted out. But not in favor of a Democrat ( unless the Democrat has some integrity ), I'd like to see him ousted in the next primary by another Republican.

Vote out the "snake", and elect a Trump supporting felon...or maybe a "mall-crusier"...only one requirement, they have to lie under oath...

Orange aliens?

Just impeach him. We will have one side standing with America and the rule of law and the others standing with a proven scammer and known liar. Let it be recorded for all of history which side people are on.

Not mutually exclusive so why did mueller only present that he was probably Russian intelligence while not mentioning at all he was a known US intel source.

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

Put Barr behind bars.

Nowhere near as good as time to pay the Barr tab.

He is politicizing the DOJ and trying to usurp the Constitution.

Oh, so the witch hunt was perfectly OK, but to get to the bottom of it is not OK. Amazing!

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

Amazing that all the libs suddenly want Trump and even Barr in prison. Don’t we convict people of crimes before that happens? You guys kinda forgot a few steps in that process (because you can’t prove anything¥

Not mutually exclusive so why did mueller only present that he was probably Russian intelligence while not mentioning at all he was a known US intel source.

Flip - back to Mueller cannot be trusted! When is the next flop to Mueller is trustworthy and awesome?

TumbleDry - Complete and total exoneration?

Why hide the full report then?

The reason hasn't changed. Federal law prevents grand jury testimony from being released. Tough choice, violate federal law by releasing grand jury info, or be continually asked why the full report hasn't been made public.

Malinois1 - Amazing! I will give Trump one thing... He is right, he could stand in the middle of the street and shoot someone and he wouldn't lose and supporters... What does that say about his supporters?

The whole quote, not the shortened Democrat/resist Party version, was, "You know what else they say about my people? The polls, they say I have the most loyal people. Did you ever see that? Where I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay? It’s like incredible," Trump said."

Democrats unveil new strategy in subpoena battles with Trump

The Democrats are becoming more and more desperate to stop, or obstruct, the DOJ investigation into the actions of those who created the Russian collusion hoax based on the Steele dossier. Comey, Strzok, Page, Obama, Schiff, Lynch, Ohr, Mueller and all the rest, are in danger of getting the opportunity to spend time in prison.

The usual suspects representing the Democrat Party's pet news media outlets continue to object to Barr's investigation. They only find investigations of Republicans to be news-worthy.
