Go for it, you punk.

Meanwhile the Republican led Congress wants to wrap up the Russian investigations and start new ones on Hillary. Can we send these people to jail too?

Lots of little nuggets to savor. I'm particularly going to enjoy watching Sessions indicted on perjury charges.

Leave no stone unturned, if one t is missing a cross or one i is missing a dot, throw the book at them.

Make it happen Don. Or you are breaking your promise. We are all waiting for the Clinton arrest for her selling Uranium to the Soviets.

Brazile alleges she found "proof" that the 2016 Democratic primary was rigged in Clinton's favor. Brazile writes that she believes no laws were violated, but that a funding agreement "looked unethical."

'Unethical' understates what the Democratic Party did. If laws were violated, prosecute those responsible.

The White House has repeatedly sought to turn the attention of the probe, which is looking into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, to Clinton and her campaign.

'Unethical' also understates what Trump and his white house have been doing.

Allow the intelligence agencies and judiciary to find the truth. If laws were violated, prosecute those responsible.

Actually at this point, I'd rather see Trump's tax returns.

Poor Donny desperatly trying to shift focus off himself,Maybe once Mueller finishes his current investigation he can move on to Hilary.

Horribly inappropriate for a sitting President to call on the DOJ or FBI to investigate his political rival. There's a reason why they keep things separate, and Trump is showing us that reason.

The fact is Rosenstein is the only one who can make the decision for a Special Prosecutor. A Republican. Demand answers from him if you want them.

The FBI, if it receives evidence of wrongdoing it deems credible, can open their own investigation. If there's no evidence, there's no investigation.

The fact that the Right still talks about Clinton a year after the election is starting to get creepy. Will it continue in 2018? Will we be here a year from now reading daily messages from a Trump fans about Hillary Clinton?

From Whitewater to Vince Foster to Benghazi to servers to her nearly dead to The Clinton Foundation to PizzaGate to Uranium One to Fusion GPS....each so white hot until it fizzles out and right on schedule a new one begins.

Reasonable, rational people do not behave like this. It's a cult. A cult to go after a retired politician, out of the spotlight, that her own base doesn't even talk about anymore.

Horribly inappropriate for a sitting President to call on the DOJ or FBI to investigate his political rival.

If there's possible corruption, why not? There is nothing in the Constitution that says the president CAN'T speak on on the issue.

There's a reason why they keep things separate, and Trump is showing us that reason.

How so?

The fact is Rosenstein is the only one who can make the decision for a Special Prosecutor. A Republican. Demand answers from him if you want them.

Oh, so after what we know now about the cozy relationship between Mueller, Comey and Rosenstein, we have to blindly take his word? Where I grew up people that would do that we call a "sucker"

The FBI, if it receives evidence of wrongdoing it deems credible, can open their own investigation. If there's no evidence, there's no investigation.

Whoa!!! So now knowing what we know about the FBI we have to trust them???? Comey was a fair guy? Mueller is a fair guy despite him hiring pretty much all Liberal lawyers and zero conservative lawyers, the fact that he indicted Manafort on a charge completely unrelated to what his original mission outlined?

The fact that the Right still talks about Clinton a year after the election is starting to get creepy. Will it continue in 2018? Will we be here a year from now reading daily messages from a Trump fans about Hillary Clinton? 

Oh, stop, you guys were talking about Bush pretty ,much until Obama's 7th year in office, suck it up! But getting back on track, I will say this, now that Donna Brazile and NBC (what a shock) have the documents that prove she was more than right and that the Clinton's are up to their eyeballs in murky collusion, I think more than ever, she needs to be thoroughly investigated. So how do you feel that she rigged the election for Sanders? How do you feel that Wasserman Schultz will not elaborate on the topic. Hillary controlled the DNP finances, thereby asserting all authority and making sure to hire and fire anyone she pleases, so in other words, she had a monopoly on the party. 

From Whitewater to Vince Foster to Benghazi to servers to her nearly dead to The Clinton Foundation to PizzaGate to Uranium One to Fusion GPS....each so white hot until it fizzles out and right on schedule a new one begins.

Democrats are the best when it comes to corruption and well, until recently hiding it, but that glass ceiling of power just shattered, even Liz Warren is shocked and wants action taken. The Democrats don't want her and cannot really move forward as long as the Clinton's wield power in that party.

Reasonable, rational people do not behave like this. It's a cult. A cult to go after a retired politician, out of the spotlight, that her own base doesn't even talk about anymore.

Don't let the age and her so called retired position fool you. If anything, Trump needs to push as hard and relentless as he can. Kudos.

Mueller is a fair guy despite him hiring pretty much all Liberal lawyers and zero conservative lawyers, the fact that he indicted Manafort on a charge completely unrelated to what his original mission outlined?

Then why doesn't Trump just fire him? He can. The entire government is Republican controlled and no one can touch Trump. That will make Trump even more powerful and untouchable. Isn't that a good thing?

Trump needs to push as hard and relentless as he can.

But he's not doing enough since Hillary is still not under arrest. he is not relentless. Trump is doing a very very poor job in the Hillary investigation considering she sold Uranium to the Soviets.

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

How so?

Because you don't want a situation where Presidents abuse the DOJ to go after their political rivals. If there evidence is there, it's best for a 3rd party to decide. You agree with this.

Oh, so after what we know now about the cozy relationship between Mueller, Comey and Rosenstein, we have to blindly take his word?

As long as he's the one who makes the decision, then yes. If you feel he's been compromised, then work to have him removed.

Whoa!!! So now knowing what we know about the FBI we have to trust them????

You don't have to trust them if you don't want to. It just won't amount to anything in the eyes of the law if you don't.

Mueller is a fair guy despite him hiring pretty much all Liberal lawyers and zero conservative lawyers, the fact that he indicted Manafort on a charge completely unrelated to what his original mission outlined?

So then Trump can fire him. The power to stop and start completely lies in the hands of Republicans. If you're angry, be angry at them.

I think more than ever, she needs to be thoroughly investigated.

Great. But your opinion doesn't hold any weight in the eyes of the law. If there is evidence, they will investigate. If not, they won't. Your desire for an investigation is relevant only to you and nothing else on earth.

Hillary controlled the DNP finances, thereby asserting all authority and making sure to hire and fire anyone she pleases, so in other words, she had a monopoly on the party. 

Great. Go after with with everything if you want. You won't find much support for defending Clinton for many Democrats, especially if it can be proven that she's done something wrong.

Have you heard a lot of liberals saying, "Clinton is our hero and she would never do anything wrong!!!!"? No, you don't. What we say is, "There's no way we're going to let the GOP get away with political witch hunts with bunk conspiracy theories."

Trump needs to push as hard and relentless as he can.

Great. Obviously as President it's a priority for him and apparently it's a priority for you as well. But again, remember that your relentlessness is meaningless in the eyes of the law, and it's still inappropriate for a President to advise the DOJ to go after his political rivals. That's the kind of thing that ends up biting us all in the ass in the future.

7 ( +8 / -1 )

Because you don't want a situation where Presidents abuse the DOJ to go after their political rivals. If there evidence is there, it's best for a 3rd party to decide. You agree with this.

You mean the way Loretta Lynch went after Trump? I get your point, but voicing an opinion compared to actively pushing the head of the FBI to recommend not to indict a political rival, I don't agree with that.

As long as he's the one who makes the decision, then yes. If you feel he's been compromised, then work to have him removed.

I think that's in the works.

You don't have to trust them if you don't want to. It just won't amount to anything in the eyes of the law if you don't.

Funny, if the shoe were on the other foot as it is now slowly sliding over, the left cries foul, but as it is going and as you say, we don't have to like it, so I hope the left heeds your words as well and man up what's slowly shaping into something very big on the left, that is unless the documents and Brazile's testimony is a flat out lie.

So then Trump can fire him. The power to stop and start completely lies in the hands of Republicans. If you're angry, be angry at them.

No, I'm not angry at them for that information. I am annoyed by the farce of the investigation and the joke on what it's made up to be. Again, if this were towards the other side, the left would lose their minds, please don't give me that.

Great. But your opinion doesn't hold any weight in the eyes of the law.

Exactly and neither does yours, but you are allowed to have an opinion and so does the president, you just made my point.

If there is evidence, they will investigate. If not, they won't. Your desire for an investigation is relevant only to you and nothing else on earth.

Exactly, so if the findings of this farce investigation comes out that there was nothing that Trump did wrong, you guys can definitively say, Trump colluded with the Russians and that proof is growing day by day more evident. So then that means you would accept the outcome if it proves so.

Have you heard a lot of liberals saying, "Clinton is our hero and she would never do anything wrong!!!!"? No, you don't.

I haven't heard the liberals outright denouncing her and pushing her out either, which leads everyone to believe she still in fact controls that party and as long as her tentacles have a stronghold on that party and the Democrats don't reform the party, everyone is in trouble and the Dems will keep on losing elections, they are already getting less in donations, the right are making crazy money in fund raising.

What we say is, "There's no way we're going to let the GOP get away with political witch hunts with bunk conspiracy theories."*

And the same applies to the left.

Great. Obviously as President it's a priority for him and apparently it's a priority for you as well. But again, remember that your relentlessness is meaningless in the eyes of the law, and it's still inappropriate for a President to advise the DOJ to go after his political rivals. That's the kind of thing that ends up biting us all in the ass in the future.

And right back at you, so as the charges and allegations within the last 48 hours are developing over Hillary things are changing faster than the left like. I hope the president and everyone on the right intensify the pressure as hard and as relentless as they can to root out the corruption of the Clinton's that is the cancer of their party and the country.

I am annoyed by the farce of the investigation

Then Trump is failing by not firing Mueller. This is his fault. He has the power to stop it and he doesn't.

root out the corruption of the Clinton's

And this is up to Trump to have her arrested and he is failing on this too. He promised to have her locked up. What has happened?

0 ( +2 / -2 )

Exactly and neither does yours, but you are allowed to have an opinion and so does the president, you just made my point.

You and I are not the boss of these poeple. There's a different dynamic in play here when Trump says it. It's not appropriate. You agree, and it doesn't make you any less of an American or a Republican if you agree with me.

So then that means you would accept the outcome if it proves so.

Back when the FBI was doing their investigation into Clinton's servers I specifically said I'd accept whatever outcome they chose well before the outcome was known. I said the same thing with Mueller, and that's going to be my position until the end. Quote me on it.

she still in fact controls that party and as long as her tentacles have a stronghold on that party and the Democrats don't reform the party

You are mistaken. She is irrelevant to the party these days. But we will never agree that convictions in the right wing media are the same as convictions in the court of law. Have faith in our legal system, even when it produces an outcome you don't personally like.

so as the charges and allegations within the last 48 hours are developing over Hillary things are changing faster than the left like

That is simply not true. You are not seeing any change at all in the position the left has with Clinton. You are vastly overstating the importance of this woman to us, and it makes me wonder if your motivation is based on you incorrect assumptions.

I hope the president and everyone on the right intensify the pressure as hard and as relentless as they can to root out the corruption of the Clinton's that is the cancer of their party and the country.

Go for it. If you find evidence that she's done something wrong and she's convicted, then so be it. I have this strange feeling that if you knew how irrelevant Clinton was to us then you wouldn't be so obsessed with seeing her behind bars.

Oh there are things going on behind the scenes I’m sure. I like how whenever we try to apply equal justice under the law to Hillary, she goes back to being his “political rival” and we are supposed to leave her alone. But when she travels around attacking trump daily she is just an irrelevant private citizen with an opinion nothing to see here.

Too much evidence of wrongdoing to not have a special counsel, the bar is low as Trump has one to “find” evidence.

I like how whenever we try to apply equal justice under the law to Hillary, she goes back to being his “political rival” and we are supposed to leave her alone.

Are you making this up? No one has told you she should be left alone at all.

Too much evidence of wrongdoing to not have a special counsel, the bar is low as Trump has one to “find” evidence.

Wow, after years of Republicans investigating Hillary and finding nothing, now they want to do another investigation. Again.

How many is that now? 23? 44?

Freedom of Information Act documents released yesterday show without a doubt she lied when she said no classified info sent.

But you can’t get someone for crimes if you have to prove “intent” or if you have to prove they should be competent enough to know “C” on a document doesn’t mean “cookie”. Wiped the server with a cloth, indeed.

-6 ( +1 / -7 )

Yes we want an investigation that doesn’t have someone telling us all about her crimes then letting her go free because she didn’t “intend” to do it when intention isn’t part of the law. An investigation where it isn’t determined that she is innocent before she is interviewed and where she is interviewed under oath so that any lie means indictment.

-7 ( +1 / -8 )

You and I are not the boss of these poeple. There's a different dynamic in play here when Trump says it. It's not appropriate. You agree, and it doesn't make you any less of an American or a Republican if you agree with me.

No, I don't agree, I believe that the president has every right to voice his opinion even if the other side can't stand it. I thought Obama said a lot of things I thought were inappropriate, but he had a right to his opinion whether I disagreed with him or not.

Back when the FBI was doing their investigation into Clinton's servers I specifically said I'd accept whatever outcome they chose well before the outcome was known. I said the same thing with Mueller, and that's going to be my position until the end. Quote me on it.

And?

You are mistaken. She is irrelevant to the party these days.

Ohhh, that's NOT what Donna Brazile says and you cannot get a more closely connected, entrenched and loyal Democrat than Donna.

But we will never agree that convictions in the right wing media are the same as convictions in the court of law. Have faith in our legal system, even when it produces an outcome you don't personally like.

I used to have faith in the system until I say the Pedesta files and all of the recent revelations that have been coming out and saw how Holder abused his office, the same for Loretta Lynch, James Comey and Robert Mueller. That's dead and gone now. So I'm very skeptic and suspicious of these guys.

That is simply not true. You are not seeing any change at all in the position the left has with Clinton.

Yes, I do, but the majority of the Dems are lemmings and are beholden to her and many that are on the outside of the Democratic party DO WANT a change and want her to get out completely. Now personally, I hope she stays and makes it harder for the Dems, they're down in fundraising and the longer she stays and the more she wields the power she has, the Democrats will never shake the shackles of the Clinton dynasty regime.

You are vastly overstating the importance of this woman to us, and it makes me wonder if your motivation is based on you incorrect assumptions.

I've known the woman over 30 years. Correction, I don't underestimate the woman, not for a second.

Go for it. If you find evidence that she's done something wrong and she's convicted, then so be it.

Not me, I don't have to do anything, I am just like you watching and hearing the web she weaved and ensnared her victims for years is slowly falling apart. But I'm a patient man. But I do have to say, when Donna uncovered these facts, I wasn't even a little bit surprised, but I did feel very elated that none of us were under the influence after all.

I have this strange feeling that if you knew how irrelevant Clinton was to us then you wouldn't be so obsessed with seeing her behind bars.

ROFL! Yeah, Sup, nice try.

-6 ( +1 / -7 )

Yes we want an investigation that doesn’t have someone telling us...

And then we want an investigation that [A], and after that we want an investigation that [B], and if that one doesn’t work we want to try an investigation that [C], and...

Your comment wouldn’t be less ridiculous if you would have made it nine or ten investigations ago. Now you guys are just a scratched record.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

One honest, fair investigation with people under oath isn’t too much to ask. That has not happened and there is even to this day more and more evidence coming to light.

there has been not even one official investigation into Uranium One or the fake dossier funding or the entire DNC money laundering election finance scandal.

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

Frank Bowman makes a strong constitutional case against Trump’s call for investigating Clinton and the DNC:

directing the criminal justice and intelligence systems of the United States against political opponents, for purposes unrelated to the impartial enforcement of the law or preservation of legitimate national security interests, is among the impeachable “high crimes and misdemeanors” of Article II, Section 4.

Trump defenders may wish to read Bowman’s full article at Slate and express what particular details they take issue with. All this other “whatabout libs rofl” nonsense doesn’t count.

Trump is getting himself and the country into some very dangerous territory.

As a liberal I am not averse to any investigation into Clinton or the DNC, but not in this way. Trump made “lock her up” a tool in his election campaign. That was bad enough. Now he is president.

It has already been made clear that Trump’s statements affected the sentencing of Bowe Bergdahl (for better or worse). The man simply does not understand how a civil society operates.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

One honest, fair investigation with people under oath isn’t too much to ask

And then one more with [A] and then another with [B], and if that one doesn’t work then one with [C]...

And after 11 of those now you’re saying it’s not too much to ask.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Btw didn’t Nancy Pelosi just call for another Russia investigation when this one not even over? You telling me that after Trump is cleared but new information is found you will just let it go? Doubtful.

Nice deflection but only thing ever honestly investigated was Benghazi. When was the uranium one investigation, fake dossier or DNC election rigging? Not even 1 yet.

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

we want an investigation that doesn’t have someone telling us all about her crimes

Then what is Trump waiting for? The more he waits the more he fails his followers. He is breaking his promise. If I were Trump's follower I would be very upset at him now for not having Hillary arrested.

there has been not even one official investigation into Uranium One

She was selling uranium to the Russia and no investigation from Trump? I would be very very upset at Trump at this point. This is unacceptable.

and Robert Mueller.

Shouldn't Trump just fire him? Mueller is threatening the Trump WH. Trump has the power to fire him but he doesn't. What is he waiting for? It is politically safe for Trump to fire Mueller. If I were a Trump follower I would be very angry at Trump for not letting go Mueller. Once Mueller is gone then Trump can focus on making America great again. And maybe even having Hillary arrested.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

and the emails investigation was tainted by Comey, Lynch, Bill and all her close staff getting immunity. Anyone can see that. Hillary wasn’t even put under oath so that her now uncovered lies about classified emails on that system could be indicted.

I can agree I don’t want to see any Hillary/Benghazi anymore but the rest is yet to be honestly investigated and resolved.

-5 ( +0 / -5 )

Blacklabel: Too much evidence of wrongdoing to not have a special counsel

Obviously not, if Rosenstein hasn't appointed a special council. You're free to disagree, but it's meaningless to him and everyone else.

I like how whenever we try to apply equal justice under the law to Hillary, she goes back to being his “political rival” 

Trump's comments are obviously inappropriate. There's a reason why we don't let Presidents investigate who they want to. If you don't like it, go live in a different country where leaders can order investigations on anyone they want to.

Yes we want an investigation that doesn’t have someone telling us all about her crimes then letting her go free because she didn’t “intend” to do it when intention isn’t part of the law

Then you don't like the laws of this country. Not my problem.

bass: I believe that the president has every right to voice his opinion even if the other side can't stand it.

The President can say, "I don't like Hillary Clinton." But the President does not have the power to have her investigated. That was done by design, and I'm sorry if it frustrates you.

Yes, I do, but the majority of the Dems are beholden to her

If you say so.

ROFL! Yeah, Sup, nice try.

You got me. We all love Clinton and would be devastated if she went down. We just do a really, really good job of hiding it.

and the emails investigation was tainted by Comey, Lynch, Bill and all her close staff getting immunity. Anyone can see that. Hillary wasn’t even put under oath so that her now uncovered lies about classified emails on that system could be indicted.

Right. So what is Trump waiting for. If Hillary is not arrested then it's all Trump's fault.

I can agree I don’t want to see any Hillary/Benghazi anymore

Does this mean that the Hillary the criminal should go free from this crime as well? Next we are going to hear I don’t want to see any Hillary selling uranium to the Russians anymore and there is nothing more to investigate.

There is no statute of limitations on Hillary's murders.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

Btw didn’t Nancy Pelosi just call for another Russia investigation when this one not even over?

Then complain about it in stories about that.

And get laughed at since the Republicans have no ground whatsoever to be whining about multiple investigations.

But anyways, enough with the diversions.

but only thing ever honestly investigated was Benghazi. When was the uranium one investigation, fake dossier or DNC election rigging?

And then after that we can have another investigation on [D], and even one on [E]! Oh yeah, then there is [F]...

Anyways, I don't even care of she is investigated, and if she actually has done something wrong, she should be be made to pay the penalty. I'm simply pointing out two things:

1) You guys are the boy who cried wolf. Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over. So don't be surprised when we roll our eyes when you yell wolf again. And again. And again. And again. And again.

2) If she's done something wrong it's bad. If she subverted the political process it's bad. Same as if the president and/or any of his team have done anything wrong, it's bad. Anyone who gets found to be guilty should have the full penalty of the law against them.

You people keep pointing out Hillary when we point out Trump. We aren't even using Hillary as a defense. You see we have this thing called 'consistency', where we're saying wrongdoers should be punished.

Although I guess you guys are consistent too, though you're consistent in saying anything Trump may have done wrong is ok because Hillary.

Blacklabel: there has been not even one official investigation into Uranium One or the fake dossier funding or the entire DNC money laundering election finan

Nice diversion. You don’t realize that people are starting to drop Hillary? Donna Brazile and Elizabeth Warren know something coming or else they would never have admitted the election rigging.

My guess is that one or both Podestas will be first indicted then followed soon by a Huma Abedin or a Cheryl Mills. Then the Dems turn on her and it’s done. Dems will never let all this be linked to Obama.

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

You don’t realize that people are starting to drop Hillary?

Heh, apparently you're not one of those people.

Dems will never let all this be linked to Obama.

And this is why people stop taking Republicans seriously. You pre-determine guilt, then condemn those who can't find the facts to back up your pre-determinations.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

I’m not saying if Trump did something wrong it’s ok because Hillary also did something wrong.

i am saying no one has proven Trump has done anything legally wrong. But we have been presented with tons of evidence Hillary did, it just hasn’t been acted on due to undue influence and interference.

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

I’m not saying if Trump did something wrong it’s ok because Hillary also did something wrong.

And yet, you bring her up every time we're discussing Trump's wrongdoings. If you're not using her to justify his actions, then she's irrelevant to the conversation.

i am saying no one has proven Trump has done anything legally wrong. But we have been presented with tons of evidence Hillary did

"No one's proven Trump has done anything legally wrong" he states, following it up with "but Hillary...", clearly not realizing that no one has proven she has done anything legally wrong either.

it just hasn’t been acted on due to undue influence and interference.

By whom? You do realize that her opponent is the president of the USA, right? Are you saying he's so weak that he is being influenced by the opposing party?

4 ( +4 / -0 )

Predetermine guilt? You guys been trying to impeach Trump for “treason with Russia” from the night he was elected.

I mean “drop” Hillary as in not protect her anymore. People starting to speak out and agree that things she did were wrong. This would never have happened just a month or two ago. Someone has been tipped off to start distancing themselves.

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

Yes they have proven many crimes of hers but Comey falsely said it was ok due to lack of “intent” which is not part of the actual law. He just dropped the whole case by himself.

Undue influence of the Obama DOJ, Bill Clinton and James Comey who covered up and protected her.

-5 ( +0 / -5 )

You guys been trying to impeach Trump for “treason with Russia” from the night he was elected.

No, we've been saying to let the investigation happen and deal with the results when they arrive. We've actually been quite consistent in it, though you may pretend otherwise.

And look at how that investigation is proceeding. It's looking really, really bad for the Trump presidency.

I mean “drop” Hillary as in not protect her anymore.

Good. They should. You seem to be condemning them for doing the right thing.

I wonder how long it will take you guys to realize that we're not that concerned with what happens to her. Do they not tell you that on Fox "news"?

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Yes they have proven many crimes of hers but Comey falsely said it was ok due to lack of “intent” which is not part of the actual law. He just dropped the whole case by himself

Damn those guys for not finding evidence that we had already pre-convicted her on! Damn them. DAMN THEM!

Undue influence of the Obama DOJ, Bill Clinton and James Comey who covered up and protected her.

It's all a conspiracy! It's all lies! Fake news! Clinton! Hillary! Obaaaaaaaamaaaaaaaa!!!!!

Yes they have proven many crimes of hers

Then what is Trump waiting for? At this point if Hillary is not arrested then it's all on Trump and it means that Trump fails his followers.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

The President can say, "I don't like Hillary Clinton." But the President does not have the power to have her investigated.

No, but the president can exert enough pressure to get the wheels cranking to have a special prosecution to look into the matter and he can also still fire Mueller which is another option, the fallout from the left will be harsh and nasty (nothing new) but he could constitutionally do that.

That was done by design, and I'm sorry if it frustrates you.

No, as I said, it doesn't frustrate me, because after the bombshell Donna Brazile brought, I feel like Fred Astaire now.

If you say so.

Yes, I do and "did."

You got me. We all love Clinton and would be devastated if she went down. We just do a really, really good job of hiding it.

See, honesty cleanses the soul.

If she's done something wrong it's bad.

Starting to look that way.

If she subverted the political process it's bad.

Starting to really, really look bad, even worse than Whitewater. But we shall see. But from the optics, the files and the revelation of Brazile, yeah, doesn't look good.

Same as if the president and/or any of his team have done anything wrong, it's bad. Anyone who gets found to be guilty should have the full penalty of the law against them.

Oh, sure I agree. Manafort looks like he's in pretty hot water, now I have no idea what or why the Feds decided to charge him for something that happened a long, long time ago, but I probably can slightly figure out where Mueller wants to go with this.

-5 ( +0 / -5 )

Oh, sure I agree.

Good, finally we're in agreement. I'll remind you that as more of Mueller's indictments come out.

It's all very dictator-like, isn't it? The American public deserve a President who does not repeatedly lie, advocate violence, rip off other people, abuse women and makes racist comments.

Good, finally we're in agreement. I'll remind you that as more of Mueller's indictments come out.

Likewise. Hope Tony and John have the best legal counsel.

American public deserve a President who does not repeatedly lie, 

Good luck with that.

advocate violence, rip off other people, abuse women and makes racist comments.

Advocate violence, someone punches you, you punch back, sounds reasonable to me, rip off other people, talk to congress, both parties are the biggest rip off artists on the planet, abuse women, define abuse, some women say it happened others didn't and it depends on which side you want to sit on. Racist comments? Like what?

JT has a large demographic of US readers, so it's not surprising US politics is a daily fixture. It would be odd it fit didn't. Does Trump's every utterance need to come under the microscope? That's down to what one considers important. Certainly the man controls the fates of not just Americans but us Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Philippinos, Thai, British, French, Irish, German, Italian, Greek, Canadian etc - all of us who share this remarkable country we find ourselves living in.

And so would Clinton; had she taken office. And as much as I dislike her; my fear and dislike of Trump is stronger. I haven't been this worried about potential nuclear conflict in 30 years. So, I welcome as many investigations into Trump as possible. I welcome the exposure of fake accounts and Russian interference. Anything that can stop this person and restore America's good name.

I fear the damage is done, though.

bass: No, but the president can exert enough pressure to get the wheels cranking to have a special prosecution to look into the matter

No, that's something he specifically can't do. Only the Attorney General can appoint a special prosecutor. Sessions has already said he'd recuse himself from anything Hillary related, so now only Rosenstein can do it.

The system is set up that way to make sure Presidents don't abuse it. Trump's comments actually make it harder for Rosenstein to appoint a S.P. because he'd have the added burden of showing that Trump's comments did not influence his decision and that he coincidentally appointed one right after the President made his comments.

No, as I said, it doesn't frustrate me, because after the bombshell Donna Brazile brought, I feel like Fred Astaire now.

Great. Dance all you'd like. At this point it would appear your sole motivation is to get some kind of revenge on Democrats via Clinton. If that's all this is, then I wish you luck. Maybe then you can move on with your life and message boards across the country can talk about something else. Like Trump.

blacklabel: But we have been presented with tons of evidence Hillary did, it just hasn’t been acted on due to undue influence and interference.

The House and Senate can spin up an investigation anytime they want, and after Benghazi they've shown they have no problem doing it. The Republican Deputy AG is also free to start an investigation when he wants. Republicans have the power, at their own choosing, to start an investigation at any second. Nothing is stopping them but themselves.

Dems will never let all this be linked to Obama.

Oh boy. I'm afraid to ask what this means.

if the findings of this farce investigation comes out that there was nothing that Trump did wrong, you guys can definitively say, Trump colluded with the Russians and that proof is growing day by day more evident. So then that means you would accept the outcome if it proves so.

The investigation isn't required to prove collusion. It's an investigation into "links" between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, and as you've seen, crimes turned up by the investigation can lead to charges - 3 people so far. Those crimes don't have to be directly under the subject of investigation, so laundering money from Ukraine - most definitely a criminal offense - is one of the charges currently filed.

I can see how that would make Trump nervous: even if he's innocent of any crime, which let's face it, is not overwhelmingly likely, his son or his son in law or both could still be charged with offenses that carry jail time. That's pretty close to home. He's issued a none too subtle warning to the investigators not to delve into his family matters or his finances; he's been fascinatingly eager to withhold his tax returns from the public; he's made a few statements concerning Russia and his people that looked and were mendacious; he even wrote a defense of his son's meeting with Russians that was passed off as Trump Jr's own work (naturally the content was also false); and a number of his people have untruthfully denied meetings with Russian government cronies. For the FBI, this sort of thing must be like red meat to a pit bull.

So you'd better hope he's clean as a whistle. On everything. It's no wonder you're reduced to calling this investigation a witch hunt, a farce, and a joke. If it manages to stop at just 3 people charged, at least you'll be able to save some face by pretending it's a storm in a teacup, but when an administration is as bent as this one, it'll be a frigging miracle if that wish comes to pass.

wipeout: his son or his son in law or both could still be charged with offenses that carry jail time. 

Don't forget about Sessions. He said under oath that he was not aware of any attempts to communicate with Russia by Trump or his staff, which directly contradicts new information from Papadopoulos. The question is what evidence exists, if any, that Papadopoulos talked about Russia in any of the meetings with Sessions. Even Donald "worlds greatest memory" Trump is starting with the "I don't recall" lines instead of denying anything.

For Trump Jr. and Kushner, a lot probably hinges on what statements they've made to the FBI. For Kushner specifically, I'm betting he'd rather not have a microscope into his finances.

As for Trump, there's still the obstruction of justice issues. He came out and said he fired Comey because of the Russia investigation. Flynn is still a wild card. If he goes down (he probably will) then it's going to look even worse that Trump asked Comey to drop the investigation into Flynn.

The only thing that worries me is that my personal feelings of satisfaction at seeing Trump's family members and his administration going to jail could be wiped clean if my heroes John and whats-his-name Podesta go down. I've always talked about my admiration for them and it would be personally devastating, and The Right would laugh at my crushed soul. Talk about turning the tables. I just pray that doesn't happen or else all this would be for naught.

Pretty much worldwide. When America sneezes, everyone catches a cold.

And so would Clinton; had she taken office. And as much as I dislike her; my fear and dislike of Trump is stronger.

Many of us feel the same about Hillary as corrupt as she is to once again sit in the WH.

I haven't been this worried about potential nuclear conflict in 30 years. So, I welcome as many investigations into Trump as possible. I welcome the exposure of fake accounts and Russian interference. Anything that can stop this person and restore America's good name. 

I too, welcome the investigations and any that will come Hillary’s way as well. We both agree on something, just we sit on opposite fences.

I fear the damage is done, though.

No, that was done the last 8 years.

No, that's something he specifically can't do. Only the Attorney General can appoint a special prosecutor. Sessions has already said he'd recuse himself from anything Hillary related, so now only Rosenstein can do it. 

But he didn’t this time, so we dodged a bullet on that one, I’m happy and so should you, now we can hopefully get to the bottom of all this soon.

The system is set up that way to make sure Presidents don't abuse it. Trump's comments actually make it harder for Rosenstein to appoint a S.P. because he'd have the added burden of showing that Trump's comments did not influence his decision and that he coincidentally appointed one right after the President made his comments.

I know how the system works, but the pressure is on Sessions to open an independent counsel and see what goes on next. Even Liz Warren admitted the system is rigged, imagine, Liz Warren admitting to something we all have known.

Great. Dance all you'd like. At this point it would appear your sole motivation is to get some kind of revenge on Democrats via Clinton.

Well, there are a lot of reasons for that, there is a lot of corruption in politics both sides tried to rig the election, the Democrats are more pros when it comes to lying and scheming, the Republicans are too stupid and get caught easily. The GOP tried to rig the system so that Trump would lose and the Democrats or specifically Hillary has hijacked and rules the Democratic Party with an Iron fist and they with the help of Wassermann Schultz made sure to trip Bernie Sanders up so that he wouldn’t get the nomination. But Democrats see there’s as an honest accidental error, the GOP it’s just straight up collusion. Lol

Your article is garbage, but it's OK either way. If Sessions can order the investigation, then it means he hasn't. And if he can't, it means Rosenstein hasn't. The fact is the DOJ can order the investigation at any time. Blame them if you're angry.

Of course, you are free to personally believe that they are secretly gathering information behind the scenes and are just about to appoint someone, or if it makes you feel better you can follow blacklabel's lead and say there's a conspiracy stopping them. Whatever gets you through another day of no investigation...

Hillary laundered funds through state parties and funneled them to her national campaign in order to get around campaign finance limits. Add that to her corrupt take over of the DNC during the primary (essentially stealing the nomination) along with her initiating payments to Kremlin operatives to dig up opposition research on Trump and the case for a special prosecutor is a slam dunk.

Oh and don’t forget the piles of cash paid to her husband and their foundation just before and after she signed off on Russian business takeover of strategic American uranium assets.

Attacking Hillary for not arresting Hillary is the main downfall of these Trump voters. They complain about Hillary. But they don't complain about Trump for not having her arrested. That could be a sign of irrationality due to age because Fox viewing trump voters don't make sense.

The average age of a Fox News viewer is about 70.

Not Attack but fact.

Oh and don’t forget the piles of cash paid to her husband

Comey was actively trying to get rid of Trump, Trump gets rid of Comey for playing both sides, taking the position of the DOJ which is not his responsibility to do or within his power and then his closest mentor and best friend Bob Mueller, I don’t know. I do know that My best friends got my back and I have his, always, so go figure.

then Trump must be guilty also since he knows and was associated with those arrested in the Russia saga

Don’t know if he’s guilty, all leads after 11 months doesn’t even remotely show it even with a gang of Democratic lawyers scavenging around, in the US you are always innocent until proven guilty. But we shall see, the connection and totally unrelated Manafort and Gates and the Podesta brothers are proving out to be something more sinister between these men and both parties now involved.

Some do, but many of us don’t. Most do (liberals) there, fixed it for you.

Good question, that’s the very swamp Trump has been talking about. Look, when you have have the leftist woman in the Senate Liz Warren admitting that the DNP is corrupt and when you have a Democratic loyalist like Donna Brazile admitting and showing documents that The Clinton’s are up to their eyeballs in corruption and has a written document that shows the Clinton’s overtook the financial funding and showing once and for all that the Clinton machine is not only alive and well but looks like will be difficult to dislodge.

Trump can not and should not tell the FBI who to investigate. He also can not and should not tweet who he thinks is guilty or a traitor or rotten. Look at Bowe Bergdahl (the soldier who deserted in Afghanistan).

Trump's inept actions and biased comments lead to possibly guilty people getting very lenient sentences precisely because his comments may influence judges and/or juries etc. Can you really support him when he himself doesn't seem to understand it? It's going to be funny if Hillary does end up in court one day but gets off because of something stupid Dodgy Don said or did. But, sadly for you, it will be Trump in court before Hillary as his issues really are far more serious and far more pressing at the moment.

"We were shocked to learn the news that Donna Brazile actively considered overturning the will of the Democratic voters by attempting to replace Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine as the Democratic Presidential and Vice Presidential nominees," reads the opening of the letter."It is particularly troubling and puzzling that she would seemingly buy into false Russian-fueled propaganda, spread by both the Russians and our opponent, about our candidate’s health."

Letter from Hillary apologists attacking Donna Brazile. even Hillary’s supposed “pneumonia” that she admitted having actually never happened-it was just Russia propaganda.

If you were given another one, you'd just realize you guys have NOTHING to offer the public and need to deflect from the still under investigation Russian collusion and other Trump cabinet scandals and would say you want ANOTHER investigation into the same thing AGAIN. How about instead of trying to deflect and interfere with the current investigation you wait until THAT is concluded before launching yet another of the same that you've concluded before? I mean, you DO realize any mention of Hillary IS a deflection from Trump and the ongoing Mueller investigation, right? Just say, "Mueller" and you get the GOP scrambling with, "B-b-b-b-butwhatabouthillary!?!"

wtfjapan: so what if Hillary is corrupt what has that got to do with Trump, do you think her getting arrested sent to prison will somehow magically wipe away the corruption and collusion of Trump and his team!?

No certainly not. I am sickened by the corruption within the American political system. Both parties are equally to blame for the dysfunction. If it can be proven that Trump was illegally assisted by Russia in order to beat Hillary, then he will deserve impeachment. But just because Hillary lost does not excuse her misdeeds. She already used her get out of jail free card when Comey let her off the hook before even interrogating her for mishandling classified information. No other person without her ties to the political elite ever receive the same leniency from the FBI.

At this point there is more publicly known evidence that Hillary used Russia to her benefit than Trump. Funds from her campaign were funneled through the DNC’s law firm, which we now know she controlled, and found their way to Russian intelligence assets via a former British spy. If not collusion then she certainly paid for foreign interference into the election process.

Both Trump and Hillary had Russian contacts during the campaign. Hillary actually paid for Russian disinformation about her political opponent that originated from Russian intelligence sources. At this point there is no similar information known about Trump and his campaign - just conjecture and innuendo. As of now only Hillary paid money to Russians that resulted in publicly disclosed disinformation about her opponent. We are still waiting on Mueller to provide any evidence that Trump did anything similar.
