Trump blasts Democrats

in his ongoing attempts to undermine US institutions he and his backers can't yet control.

"I don't do cover-ups," Trump shot back

Trump's so easily triggered.

If he's not covering up something, why won't he release the info asked for? This would all just go away if he'd be more transparent. What all is Trump hiding? Who else - in the US and 'abroad' - is he trying to protect?

in his ongoing attempts to undermine US institutions he and his backers can't yet control.

How?

Trump's so easily triggered. 

If I constantly accuse your family doing, went deaf your family, launched a bogus in the whole investigation for two years on you and you knew that you were in this since it in the findings found the same thing, absolutely no collusion and then they continue to try to tear you down? Yeah, I’d be easily triggered as well.

If he's not covering up something, why won't he release the info asked for?

Or he just doesn’t want to give the Democrats even more ammunition, they already started attacking him over his financial records which he didn’t do anything wrong and which he openly admitted and talked about it, wrote a best selling book about it before he became president about how much money he lost, so I think the results will be the same, but why would he do that and have the Democrats pile on him some more? So I don’t blame her for doing that.

*This would all just go away if he'd be more transparent. *

Give me a break!! None of this would go away he could be as open as he possibly can, he can cure cancer, he could do anything, anything positive, he could impose the highest tax penalty on the richest people it wouldn’t matter, The Democrats would still complain about something and would still find something to attack them on, don’t even go there.

he can cure cancer,

No he can't.

he could do anything, anything positive,

He hasn't

he could impose the highest tax penalty on the richest people it wouldn’t matter, 

He won't and it would change things.

How?

By trotting out rediculous conspiracy theories that the institutions are corrupt and/or biased every time those institutions rule against Donny. You are a master of this, so it's odd that you would ask.

Hilarious that Donny can't act like an adult and be above it all, which is what Obama did.

Oh, yeah, your conclusion that there was absolutely no collusion is not supported by any evidence. I think you know this though and simply chant the mantra Fox "News" has handed down because it makes you feel better.

Or he just doesn’t want to give the Democrats even more ammunition

If there's nothing untoward, how would it be more ammunition for the Dems? Doh!

Remember when Obama was transparent with his birth certificate but Donny refused to give up on the birther nonsense? Well, Donny wasn't the opposition, he was just a vile, repugnant citizen.

Here, the Dems have a constitutional duty to provide oversight. I'm sorry that you hate the system of checks and balances the Foounding Fathers created, but it works.

No he can't.

But if he did.

He hasn't

200 recorded accomplishments say otherwise.

He won't and it would change things.

No, never for this President.

Come again? Lol

Hilarious that Donny can't act like an adult and be above it all, which is what Obama did.

Uh-huh, is that what Democrats think? Obama was equally as thin skin, he may not have voiced it in public as often, but his actions did.

Oh, yeah, your conclusion that there was absolutely no collusion is not supported by any evidence.

Yes, Mueller said so even with for the FBI agents and 19 angry Democrats and two years of wasted taxpayer money, nothing.

If there's nothing untoward, how would it be more ammunition for the Dems? Doh!

Because the Democrats definitely spit up to get this president, if anyone can’t see that now, then I don’t know what to say. You can lead a horse to the water but you can’t make it drink.

Remember when Obama was transparent with his birth certificate but Donny refused to give up on the birther nonsense?

Yes and I thought it was a stupid thing for Obama to show it, where he didn’t need to and I thought it was equally as stupid for the Republicans to go after him on that.

Here, the Dems have a constitutional duty to provide oversight.

Of course they do, and they are allowed to exercise that right, I never said he didn’t, but at the same time the president can also as with previous presidents use executive privilege and he wouldn’t be the first nor will he be the last. The Congress will do what it wants to do in the present it will do the same.

Accomplishing something doesn't make it positive.

A livid Trump abruptly shut down a White House meeting with Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, announcing he could not deal with them on policy until "phony investigations" are brought to a close.

Overweight, poor diet, "livid" - maybe we won't need impeachment....

"I don't do cover-ups," Trump shot back at a hastily arranged Rose Garden press event, moments after the aborted talks.

Really? OK Donnie and Trumpers, explain Trump dictating the memo on the Trump Tower meeting with Russians to get dirt on Hillary by saying it was about "adoptions".... That's not a cover-up?

"PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT!" he tweeted Wednesday, as he stepped up his attacks on the probes.

He's such a wussy - want some cheese with your whine Donnie? And this from the guy who has over 20 sexual harrassment claims...

For the haters, of course, for the supporters and people and institutions that benefited from them, it very much does.

He does an did. The Economy is roaring and he has a 56% approval on that and the Democrats want to run against that and they still tried to knock him down on that, there is your prime example right there.

Judging from his family DNA and he has good genes, he’ll probably live longer than all of us here on JT.

I don’t know, Mueller has spoken. The collusion delusion is over. More and more people are getting upset with the Democrats they’re not able to produce anything, they are not writing bills, they are just trying to help this president, but the good thing is next year that up for reelection as well. Lol

Welcome to the world of men and politics.

Don't impeach - that's what he wants - investigate the crap out of him - get all the dirt out in the open and show the American people what a sleazeball and criminal he is.

First you have to be convicted of a crime to be a criminal, but if Nadler and Pelosi want to go ahead, I sure wish they would. I’ll even hand them a gold plated shovel to each Democrat and throw in some headstones with names on them.

But speaking of coverups, why did Lois Lerner only target conservative donors?

Yes that’s all we need to go back to stagnant growth and have a investors see the country and have the rest of the country go down the path of California and New York, that sounds really good, jump on more regulations and scare away investors.

The democrat party "leadership" continues showing the U.S. electorate on a daily basis that they have zero chance of defeating PDJT in 2020 because instead of moving forward and doing the job they were elected to do, they insist on living in the past by trying to win the 2016 election. Only their dwindling reality-challenged basement voter bloc are lappping up what the democrats and their stenographers in the liberal MSM are spewing.

The democrat party's death spiral continues.

No. That is a massive logic failure. Committing a crime makes one a criminal. Being convicted of a crime does not make one a criminal, which is evidenced by the constant exoneration of convicted people.

The Dems have gotten so bad that they can't even win elections they fix. So, rather than wake up and try to become a more inclusive and less resentment-fueled party, they opt for a coup via the courts, the voters be damned.

The whole Russian mind-control narrative belongs with flat earth, chem-trail and alien conspiracy theories. Laughable if not for the fact that so many people believe it, and it could lead to a disastrous global war.

My writing was extremely clear.

Not really.

You cannot make these kinds of statements and continue to expect to be taken seriously.

I could care less, really.

Its obvious you have no idea what is in Mueller's report.

Trump will never see the inside of a prison and if Dems want to kill their last shot, indict him please, it’s the best thing for conservatives. Make up a crime, go ahead.

If a president can block Congress from the contents of an investigation into himself via executive privilege, it defeats the purpose of the investigation. Only a biased, activist, republican appointee judge legislating from the bench would deny that.

Hey, Obama appointee judges play their game, Barr will play his, May the best politician win.

That's painfully obvious.

Okay, but this doesn't change the fact that you don't know what's in Mueller's report, which is why you keep making unfounded claims about it.

No, dodge, answer the question please.

He dictated the memo that said the meeting with Russians was about adoptions - trying to cover up the fact it was about getting dirt on Hillary - so explain how he "doesn't do cover-ups? Just man-up and answer it or say you can't.

Mueller didn't say that, Barr (Rudy Jr) said that - but he can't cover that up either...

Interesting article bass. A lot of misconceptions. Very interesting. I'm going to suggest everybody read it. Carefully. Investors having more money in foreign investments under Trump than they would have otherwise kind of shows they are more scared to invest locally now than they were before. Lots more information in there too which goes against most of the "booming economy" talk. Fantastic. No apology needed.

Which is probably why Democrats aren't walking down the impeach road. Of course, when Trump stops being President the Muller report could be used to indict him on obstruction of justice. In which case he could well see the inside of a prison.

Because there was nothing, that’s probably why.

You obviously haven't read the report.

I don't know. I'm still waiting on the evidence. If you look at my posts from early 2017, you can see I was very much skeptical of Trump. But after 2 years of the democrats' shenanigans, I've switched sides. Like I said, if they have anything to impeach with, by all means; but my guess is Donny ain't going nowhere, and now the dems will play this sick game--hoping to erode confidence in Trump--until the election--which they will lose. The dems still don't get it: Donny one because he had a message; MAGA. Those four words put people on one side of the argument. It's like advertising: you gotta have a message that resonates with people. The dems have no message for the people. I'm depressed listening to their cynical and nihilistic talking points. The dems would be smart to just stop trying to be Trump in such a round about way. If he's as dumb and incompetent as the dems say, then why won't they challenge him with any policies. I can already imagine the debate: Trump will be talking to people about issues, the dems will be rehashing the same ol' stuff. Hopefully the democrats will come to their senses and work with Trump during his 2nd term.

Since he accomplish nothing in his first term he could run on exactly the same platform. Healthcare reform, new NAFTA, new Middle East Peace plan, new Paris accords, new bilateral agreements, Mexico paying for a wall, etc.

As with most liberals, you cherry picked, but let me help you a bit, during the Obama years, the majority of jobs that were created work paper have jobs or jobs that had the response of would you like fries with that? Now when you have a stagnant 1.6 up to 2.0% in GDP compared to a 3.0 up to 4.1% GDP, you clear all regulations, you lower the tax code and you allow for foreign investments you unleash the economy it will set itself you have more people that are not sending money more people that are investing more people that are buying and with the latest poll that the people love economy even more than this president shows 56% approval of the economy indicates that the Democrats don’t have a leg to stand on in the going to have a very tough time trying to justify otherwise, I wish them the best of luck but all the charm and all the smiles and all the socialism in the world will not help the Democrats reach the White House.

Nice try though.

No, no, no. Trump has delivered on more campaign promises than any president in recent history. You're right, though; MAGA is still a great message. He can just play on loop the reel where he says, "Stop, stop winning, we're winning to much, we can't handle anymore winning." The dems will say the same, except switch the word win with its antonym.

Which is probably why Democrats aren't walking down the impeach road. Of course, when Trump stops being President the Muller report could be used to indict him on obstruction of justice. In which case he could well see the inside of a prison.

It just won’t happen.

-7 ( +0 / -7 )

Just like Rep. Al Green inadvertently spilled the beans, here's another great example. The obstruction is a result of the investigation in the first place. You can't scream bloody collusion at the top of your lungs, then when you fail, say, oh well, how about obstruction? No! You said Trump colluded. And he didn't. Trying to put Trump in prison for obstruction after he's out of office reveals several things: the investigation was indeed a witch hunt to undermine Trump's presidency; it also shows that Trump's haters don;t really care about what charge--just get Trump out at all costs!, if collusion doesn't work, fathom something else; and it exposes a maliciousness that has hovered over Trump from day one. The dems really are a gray cloud.

It doesn't take much to charge someone with a crime. It just takes evidence.

As your team pointed out, collusion is not a crime.

Do you think it’s ethical though?

5 ( +6 / -1 )

There's no Trump collusion,

Really? Do you mean Trump personally colluded or the Trump campaign colluded? If there was no collusion with the campaign, why were 7 senior Trump officials tried and convicted for lying under oath about Russians? Why did Manafort give campaign polling data to the Russians? Why did Don Jr and Jared meet with Russians at Trump Tower to get dirt on Hillary (then lie about it)? Why did Stone work with Wikileaks to get e-mails stolen by Russians?

It doesn't take much to charge someone with a crime. It just takes evidence.

And Mueller had the evidence to indict 34 people and 3 companies...a majority Trump officials and Russians...

Just goes to show, the only two questions on a Trump job applications are; 1) will you lie under oath, and 2) can you speak Russian...

Extortion?

Isn't Trump extorting the American people by threatening to stop cooperating with this congress unless they do as he wishes, which means not doing their duty to investigate?

Michael Avenatti got indicted though, and Comey and Brennan and McCabe will soon be following right behind him in the line or heroic CNN avengers.

You dont smacktalk a person in pubic then try to sit down to make a deal mins later. Pelosi and Dems will learn someday, until then no deal.

Nancy gave the two year old a scolding and he had the expected meltdown in public...ranting and raving like a lunatic and crying like a baby...someone give him his pacifier - maybe Stormy?

Speaking of Stormy, what do you call a $300K payoff for silence Mr President - a cover-up?

What a Loser....

Okay. If Mueller does refute Barr, you'll simply pivot to the conspiracy that Mueller is corrupt and bias.

Michael Avenatti got indicted though

Irrelevant.

We've heard this before. But this time you really mean it, correct?

Not long now! The coward is on his way out! And when he's out, bring on the criminal charges for not only him, but all those who protected him.

Nope, because Mueller cant contradict his own written words so he will never say it. NEVER.

Avenatti was your anti Trump hero, now its Mueller. they both failed you.

Yes, I really mean it. Unlike your side saying for YEARS that Trump would be removed from office, his family would be jailed, and other extraneous nonsense.

First you have to be convicted of a crime to be a criminal, but if Nadler and Pelosi want to go ahead, I sure wish they would.

I agreee with Pelosi, keep the investigation going slowly uncover all the slime under Trumps business past . then when the AMerican public has a good picture of who and what Trump is they can decide if they want more of it come next election.

now its Mueller. they both failed you.

oh by arresting and convicting a number of Trump associated , confiscating their assets and actually making a profit for the AMerican taxpayer. Mueller didn't clear Trump of obstruction you know the same thing that finished Nixon. If you class all that as failure Id hate to know what you call success.

How so? As your team reminded us so many times, collusion isn't a crime.

You saw him in prison stripes???

But I'm curious whether you think collusion is ethical or not.

Collusion is not necessarily or legally always a crime as far as it being ethical that would depend on how you interpret it or how it’s perceived in your worldview.

I agreee with Pelosi, keep the investigation going slowly uncover all the slime under Trumps business past . then when the AMerican public has a good picture of who and what Trump is they can decide if they want more of it come next election.

Yeah, uh-huh...almost 60% of Americans want an end to this, I say, let the Democrats waste their time in finding nothing like Mueller, it’s all better for Trump.

oh by arresting and convicting a number of Trump associated

That’s them, nothing to do with the President himself. Try again.

Yes Mueller and Avenatti failed you. Trump still president and no indictments of Trump family members. His “close associates” are really people he barely knew, except Cohen.

It already boomeranged on Avenatti and Cohen (prison soon and prison) and the same will happen to mueller if he speaks under oath. Thus the silence.

Lol saying it again doesn't make it any truer.

Trump still president and no indictments of Trump family members.

That we know of yet. There are still half a dozen or more sealed indictments, not to mention numerous investigations ongoing.

His “close associates” are really people he barely knew, except Cohen.

Really? Flynn is someone he barely knew? Manafort, his campaign manager was someone he barely knew? Okay.;)

It already boomeranged on Avenatti and Cohen

So what? Cohen is a crook and Avenatti sounds like one as well. Send them both to prison, but let's not pretend Donny is any less of a crook than the other two.

So Blacklabel, I think we've all accepted Trump's collusion was not a crime. But I'm curious, do you think it was ethical? Do you believe that his team working with the Russians to get Trump elected was appropriate behavior for a presidential hopeful? And if so, will you defend Democratic candidates who appeal to foreign nations to help them win the presidency?

Dodge coming in 3, 2, 1...
