"All they get to do is write a report. They can't indict."

The progression of Trump defense strategies:

--It never happened. Fake news!

--OK, it happened. But it's not wrong.

--OK, it's wrong, but what about Dems, libs, the left, Hillary, Obama?

--OK, we are entirely and uniquely corrupt, but you can't indict. Go Trump!

One theory as to why it's taking Mueller so long to complete the investigation: Trump and his team continue to engage in unethical and illegal activities as they are being investigated. We may need another investigation to cover ongoing corruption so Mueller can report on findings about past corruption.

Hey MorningJoe,

so many theories out there. But one thing for sure will get you all rev’d up, you have 7 more years of Trump! Investigate that!

Haha, suck on it libs, you got nothing, NOTHING!

Does it not concern you that the President may have done something worthy of an indictment? Assuming this conversation did happen, Donny won't be in office forever, what then, and what about the Republicans enabling this blithering idiot? I look forward to them campaigning on that. :D

And we all know Giuliani has told nothing but the truth, right? The guy who backtracks on all he says because, "Hey, I don' know what I'm talkin' 'bout. I'm new at this!"

Of course it doesn't. There are only two reasons anyone ever supported Trump- because he was an open bigot, and because he made the people his supporters felt jealous of angry. He is youmadbro.jpg in human form, or at least the human-like form you would get if you poured 250 lbs of BigMacs into adult diapers and an ill-fitting suit and trained them to be white supremacists. He is the Troll President, a Russian experiment to see what would happen if a minority of Americans were willing to give up everyone's sensible health care, a decent job, a healthy environment, and a position of global leadership just to see that hipster barista named Asher with the bad man-bun have a bad year.

There's no law at all about this, but it's been long-standing policy

(Like the FBI supposed to not interfere with a Presidential election)

This is yer actual level of debate from Republicans. Meanwhile, Giuliani the liability who dropped Trump in it the other day, seems to be counting headless chickens, somewhat.

Why do Republicans show their hand and crow about "winning" all the time? We've seen how that worked with the struck out summit and the aforementioned stormy reveal.

And why are Republican supporters happy, nay, delirious that their country's elections were meddled with?

Did they just feel, ok, it's about time that we got a taste of our own medicine? A bit of misguided sincerity and empathy?

This is really funny.

Still weeping over the annotated one, and still clueless as to why more than half the electoral college didn't agree with you.

The question here is whether the right feels that collusion with foreign nations is behavior that the law should allow or not. In other words, do they feel that collusion, even if allowed by law, is appropriate behavior that should be allowed in future elections?

"Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team has told the White House that whatever evidence it comes up with in the Russian meddling probe..."

They don't have any evidence. None.

"One theory as to why it's taking Mueller so long to complete the investigation..."

They keep grasping for straws?

BREAKING: MUELLER WILL NOT INDICT TRUMP. ZERO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION WITH RUSSIA

-9 ( +1 / -10 )

Haha, suck on it libs, you got nothing, NOTHING! some people cant tell the difference with indict & impeach. Even by the slim chance Mueller was going to indict Trump hed most likely just plead the 5th, what Muellers job is to find any corruption / collusion, if he has found it his report will state it. Once congress has read the report then they most certainly can decide to impeach Trump if they think the evidence is overwhelming.

5 ( +7 / -2 )

we will know the answer to that by seeing if the Dems are punished for doing it or not. If not, then I guess its fine to do and there is no such thing as "collusion", because they certainly did it.

The question here is whether the right feels that collusion with foreign nations is behavior that the law should allow or not. In other words, do they feel that collusion, even if allowed by law, is appropriate behavior that should be allowed in future elections?

http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/388104-us-satisfaction-level-at-highest-point-since-before

Only Democrats are not happy, Repubs and Indpendents doing fine. Even in a left leaning Gallup poll.

Gallup has not registered a higher level of satisfaction since September, 2005, when it stood at 39 percent.

Satisfaction among Republicans rose in the new survey from 57 to 63 percent and from 26 to 35 percent among independents.

Democrats remained essentially unchanged since the last poll, with only 14 percent saying they are satisfied with the way things were going, according to Gallup.

People still listen to this idiot...

3 ( +5 / -2 )

nope just the ones who wont give it up that there will never be a Trump indictment, trial or impeachment. Only the ones who are hellbent to get Trump but have no interest at all in what the Dem side has done related to 2016 election. The guy won the election let him do his job by now.

Wow, you really hate other Americans, don't you.

-9 ( +2 / -11 )

I mean it was a supposed “conspiracy theory” that the obama FBI spied on the Trump campaign.

but now that the IG report is going to come out soon and confirm it? all the people who did spy on Trump are leaking to The NY Times that it’s justified that they spied. From total conspiracy theory right to hey it’s no big deal and everyone knew this was going on.

The level of pure hatred the American extreme right exhibits for anyone not like themselves is frightening. As is their seeming total disconnection from reality. It never used to be like this and it's very sad to see.

Yeah and the left didn’t use to cheer for MS-13, Hamas, illegal aliens, North Korea and Iran just to try to be anti-trump either. Might have something to do with the right being tired of that crap.

Wouldn’t know due to this one sided only investigation. Having a “both sides” would be a good start to getting to the truth.

A better start to getting the truth would be having a president who doesn't continually try to cover his tracks or obstruct an investigation when things get a little heated.

Uh-huh, yeah, it's going to be funny when this entire thing is over and the Dems look like total idiots and it's showing.

We may need another investigation to cover ongoing corruption so Mueller can report on findings about past corruption.

I think we need another investigation on Mueller, his minions, Comey, Strzok, Page, Ohr then we can see who the real thugs are in this bogus witch hunt.

And we all know Giuliani has told nothing but the truth, right?

And Mueller is a Saint? ROFL

The guy who backtracks on all he says because, "Hey, I don' know what I'm talkin' 'bout. I'm new at this!"

I'll give this fiasco about until August to wrap this up and we can all get this nightmare behind us.

I know what you mean, Alfie Noakes. It's only comparable to the level of pure hatred the American extreme left exhibits for anyone not like themselves, as is their seeming total disconnection from reality. This absolutely cuts both ways and is ominously frightening.

The non-stop, hate-filled, "us vs. them," our-side-must-win-at-all-costs, to hell with reason, logic or truth environment the US (and western civilization, for that matter) finds itself in is absolutely appalling. Nothing good is going to come from any of it, from either side, and if we all keep following this trajectory it will only get worse.

Once upon a time not too long ago you'd hear polls around election time of the average US voter who "hated negative campaigning." Now it seems that you only hear outright lies, character assassination and smear tactics used against anyone stepping off their official post-it note-sized script: anyone not part of the "heroic black block" in Berkeley is a Nazi; anyone who doesn't wear a MAGA hat is a Marxist. Worldwide instantaneous communication, pervasive social media and constant, purely subjective yellow journalism from a hate-filled mainstream media enable it all.

There's not even any sort of attempt at moderation, compromise, truth-seeking, appeal to the rule of law, or application of rational thought anymore. And the entire world is suffering mightily for it—and it will indeed only get worse as people continue to voluntarily polarize.

It never used to be like this and it's very sad to see indeed…

I just don't get why Trump allows a "corrupt" man like Rosenstein lead a "corrupt" investigation.

Makes no sense at all.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

Yeah. On one side you've Trump and his lackeys,

and other side is pretty much everyone else. ;)

Whiners, yeah, about sums it up.

Let's see Mueller and Comey were both Republivans.

Yes, they are part of the establishment, No one ever said that the swamp didn't include Republicans, it does, but I don't believe either are Republicans, not for a minute. Comey's wife and kids were supporting Hillary and his wife and daughter said, they were disappointed that she didn't win? Hmmmmm....

And Mueller ONLY hires 22 Democratic lawyers for his witch hunt team and NOT one Republican? Hmmmm....

The GOP led senate also concluded the Russians tried to influence the elections. 

I think so as well and without a doubt, but what does that have to do with Trump? Oh, Mueller allegedly has been trying to find out for over a year. Yaaawwn.

Its all just a sick, cruel witchhunt. ;)

Which is slowly coming to an end thank God and now that the President won't be indicted, let's move on to important things like....I dunno, NK, Iran perhaps.

People still fail to realize that this is the attitude that got Trump elected. Hillary didn't realize it when she called Trump supporters 'deplorables' and alienated the voters that she needed to come to her side. A lot of people were tired of the status quo and didn't know where to turn. When one side started making fun of their beliefs instead of trying to work with them, SURPRISE they voted for the other guy, who may not have been the greatest person, but at least he seemed to care that they were unhappy with the way things were going.

Until people stop with the nonsense like this, nothing will change and there's still good chances we'll see Trump, or someone like him, for another 4 years because the same people who voted for Trump sure aren't going to team up with a group of people who think they are all stupid racists because they needed change.

Uh, it was the EC that got elected. Unless you are saying Hillary's lead would have been extended by a few more million without deplorables.

Thank you for proving my point so quickly.

You know what, it very well might have been if she had actually tried to appeal to their concerns instead of calling them names. If people would stop being so damn childish on both sides, we might not be in the situation we're in.

But please, keep on with the name calling and see how successful the next election is for you. Those 'deplorables' still aren't going to vote Democrat and the Electoral College is still going to work the same way.

Perhaps he can sue the president - US Army Major Mark A Smith and colleagues sued Prez Reagan for not taking action after being given conclusive proof there were MIA's in SE Asia and USA abandoned them

A lot of good that did but at least they tried. https://law.justia.com/cases/federal/appellate-courts/F2/844/195/79194/

Will do. Maybe if Trump changed his ways and stopped attacking people he wouldn’t have to rely on EC miracles while coming in 2nd place in the popular vote.

I see you subscribe to the 'two wrongs make a right' theory. If you don't like how Trump behaves, maybe you shouldn't behave the same way? Sounds like the pot calling the kettle black.

Until everyone get over this 'Us Versus Them' mentality, nothing will ever change.

I see you also don't seem to understand how or why Electoral Collegeactually works. There was no miracle, it worked exactly as intended. It's the difference between a constitutional republic and a democracy. Read up on it.

There you go again, as old Ronnie famously said. Fantasy nonsense.

Much as I, er, admire the cut and thrust of robust debate here, I'd proffer that the divides in America cannot be healed.

Not until there's a paradigm shift in attitudes and a move away from the traditional parties, which are almost indistinguishable.

I think there is a glimmer of hope in that Trump is despised by many supporters of both parties. Let's hope, post impeachment, that the election of this fraud can be put down to some kind of mass hysteria and it will be another 80 years again until the next wave of isolationist populism.

While I do actually agree with you, the opposite is also true. As soon as I hear partisan buzzwords like 'libtard' or 'deplorable' from either side, I tune out. I know at that point its just going to be one side insulting the other. I may completely disagree with you, but I still want to hear what you have to say, as long as you feel the same.

It's just stupid for States like California with it's high illegal population voting to allow one State to dictate the outcome of an election or to have more say than all the smaller States.

Will do. Maybe if Trump changed his ways and stopped attacking people he wouldn’t have to rely on EC miracles while coming in 2nd place in the popular vote.

Maybe if the left wouldn't be so obsessed with bloodlust hatred for the President and stopped attacking him, making a lot of stuff up, then he wouldn't have to say oftentimes outlandish things, can't blame the guy, if I were being attacked, I wouldn't take it, only a fool would do that. Thank God for the EC at least we can have a fair election over one or two States bullying other smaller States.

I do agree with most of what you said, except for the last part.

A lot of the people who voted for Trump did it because they felt abandoned by the left. They were looking for something to grab onto and unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your view) that something was Trump. What people fail to realize is that Trump could not have won if some Obama supporters didn't switch sides. That really has to make you think something went wrong somewhere in the previous 8 years.

What?

Why do Republicans show their hand and crow about "winning" all the time? We've seen how that worked with the struck out summit and the aforementioned stormy reveal. 

Did you know her slick lawyer is being investigate by the California State Bar Assoc.?

And why are Republican supporters happy, nay, delirious that their country's elections were meddled with?

Hogwash! I don't know a single conservative that thinks that. The main difference is conservatives know that this witch hunt NOW has nothing to do with anything dealing with the Russians, we already know that, but at least it's slowly coming to an end, so the President can at least breath a sigh of relief.

Did they just feel, ok, it's about time that we got a taste of our own medicine? A bit of misguided sincerity and empathy?

You are starting to see it in the polling where the liberals early this year had a 12 lead polls going into the midterms, now it's within the margin of error and that gap has now closed, so people are getting tired of this nonsense and people do see what the left is trying to do, but this witch hunt has also reenergized the right as well, so thank you MSM and thank you Democrats.
