but the grand jury impaneled to hear evidence has been extended beyond its original 18-month mandate, suggesting investigators have more work to do.

Translation: After 2 years of wasting taxpayer money, they still haven't found anything concrete.

U.S. President Donald Trump faced uncomfortable new questions Sunday about his relationship with Vladimir Putin despite his angry dismissal of a report that he has kept top aides in the dark about his private conversations with the Russian leader.

What's Trump hiding this time? Did he really offer to give Putin a $50,000,000. penthouse? If so, why?

@burningbush Translation: After 2 years of wasting taxpayer money, they still haven't found anything concrete.

Again, the US isn't Russia where decisions are quickly made by whichever tsar, marshall or 'president' in some sham, Potemkin-ish investigation.

I think employees of the Internet Research Agency and other GRU/oligarch gang funded groups must be happy knowing they've contributed to Trump's election and the further fracturing of the US that's resulted from it.

I think that if Trump were genuinely scared that the report was going to contain damning evidence against him, he would be working full-time on stopping Muller's report coming out.

Instead he is bogged down with his silly wall idea, which suggests to me that he is not that nervous that Muller has a smoking gun.

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

Now that it seems plausible that our own president is a national security threat, we should have a record of all conversations the president had with adversary nations. He is supposed to speak for the US, but it's a fair assumption he was speaking and will continue to speak only for himself and his interests. For the love of God - and country - Congress, where are you?

nstead he is bogged down with his silly wall idea, which suggests to me that he is not that nervous that Muller has a smoking gun.

Or instead he's bogged down with his silly wall idea because it's attracting attention and taking attention away from Mueller.

Or he thinks his employees will solve the problems he's created for himself like he's done all his life. Think about his hiring 'fixers' like Cohen to take care of the messes he's made, for example paying off prostitutes and porn stars.

Or he hasn't clue one what he's doing.

You mean like he's been trying to do for the past year?

If he could have blocked the report, he would have. Fortunately the checks and balances of the system have prevented him from doing so.

No, you're getting the issues mixed up. They don't have money for a concrete wall.

I don't think he's being controlled by the Russians. I think Trump is an opportunist and will put his bank account ahead of the country. Trump Tower Moscow is just too big of a deal to pass up on so he wants to keep Putin happy.

U.S. President Donald Trump faced uncomfortable new questions Sunday about his relationship with Vladimir Putin despite his angry dismissal of a report that he has kept top aides in the dark about his private conversations with the Russian leader.

We've gone from lots of smoke to a five-alarm fire...

"I want to find out a little bit more about what happened there," said Senator Ted Cruz, on NBC's "Meet the Press." "I want to learn more than just the allegations in the press."

"Yea, call me "Lyin Ted", insult my wife, and link my father to the assassination of JFK..."

That account followed another in The New York Times that the FBI became so alarmed after Trump fired director James Comey in May 2017 that it opened a counterintelligence investigation into whether he was acting on Russia's behalf.

This is just an astounding development - and just shows how much of a threat security professionals really think he is...

Asked in an interview with Fox News late Saturday "are you now or have you ever worked for Russia," Trump responded: "I think that's the most insulting thing I've ever been asked."

If you've read Stormy's book you know that's not true.  Or said another way, "it's true I worked with Russians, but also insulting.."

3 ( +3 / -0 )

Maybe they were just having some locker room boy talk, like the conversation Trump had with Billy Bush!

Or maybe he is a traitor !!

5 ( +5 / -0 )

In the Fox News interview, Trump said he did not care if details of the July 2018 meeting were made public, calling it "a great conversation."

"Anybody could have listened to that meeting, that meeting is up for grabs."

Great. Then I expect Trump will be making all the notes and transcripts available soon and the Republicans won't vote down any more attempts to obtain them.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Republicans freak out because Hillary supposedly deleted some emails.

Trump hides transcripts of his conversation with a foreign leader whom he has not shown he has no financial obligation to, from literally everyone including his own people, and the Republicans are silent.

I can't be the only one who sees that hypocrisy.

Does no one understand the meaning of “private” conversations? That every President has had with every world leader.

wheres the transcript of obama’s meeting with Putin where he explained what he meant by having “flexibility” after his re-election? Oh right....it’s private.

Obama disclosed his financial records, making it very clear he wasn't financially beholden to Putin.

Yet we never learned what this “flexibility” was referring to.

It was obviously not something in the best interests of the USA if he had to get re-elected first before he couid get away with doing it. What was it? Not even a little curious?

-6 ( +0 / -6 )

Yet we never learned what this “flexibility” was referring to.

Fortunately, we had no doubt that he may be financially beholden to Russia, and therefore potentially working in their best interests rather than America's.

sounds like not in the best interests of the USA. Otherwise he would be boasting about it.

-5 ( +0 / -5 )

Yet he couldn’t tell anyone what it was and refuses to answer to this day.

And, having proven he was not financially beholden to foreign powers, along with a track record of one who worked in the best interests of America for eight years, his reputation gives him the benefit of the doubt.

Trump for all we know owes Putin billions.

Obama went in and put a finger in Putin's chest and said stop causing trouble for the US around the world.

Donnie went in groveling and asked his Master what his orders were to further erode the US's standing and reputation in the world.  Oh, and what color he wanted the wallpaper in his free $10 million Trump Penthouse...

No logic failure. If Obama’s “flexibility” had been in the best interest of USA and gotten a “win” against Putin he would still be talking about it. Yet there is silence and by definition “flexibility” isn’t a position of strength, it’s me bending to what you want.

yet If it were that Obama would tell us what the “Flexibility” was and how it benefitted our country. Did we try to subpoena his meeting notes and make the translator testify to Congress about his “private” conversations. Nope.

yet If it were that Obama would tell us what the “Flexibility” was and how it benefitted our country.

Reputations have consequences. Obama conducted himself so that there is not doubt as to whether his statement was anti-American.

Trump has opened up enough question as to whether he is loyal to America, that the FBI went so far as to open an investigation into the matter - one that is still open as part of the investigation it was rolled in to.

I know you want to try to pretend that this innocuous statement by Obama has some deep meaning, but the reality is, Obama's words and actions show it doesn't.

And where are Trump's finanical records?

Also I’m glad you now agree that Chuck and Nancy’s lack of flexibility confirms their weakness. Can’t have it both ways.

Also I’m glad you now agree that Chuck and Nancy’s lack of flexibility confirms their weakness. Can’t have it both ways.

They have been flexible by passing a bill to get the government opened, and going to meet with Trump to hear him storm off with his unreasonable demands.

You seem to forget, it's his shutdown:

If you say who gets fired, it always has to be the top. Problems start from the top, and they have to get solved from the top, and the president’s the leader, and he’s got to get everybody in a room, and he’s got to lead. And he doesn’t do that, he doesn’t like doing that, that’s not his strength."

"when they talk about the government shutdown, they’re going to be talking about the president of the United States, who the president was at that time. They’re not going to be talking about who was the head of the House, the head the Senate, who’s running things in Washington. So I really think the pressure is on the president."

“FACT – the reason why Americans have to worry about a government shutdown is because Obama refuses to pass a budget.”

After all the decades of sparring with Russia, after all the threats, the power games and flexing of muscles... Who'd of thought Russia would end up owning a President?

Of course, Putin couldn't have done it without your help, natch. Congratulations, Trump apologists.

Trump took away his translator's notes and told her to never talk about it.

Did Trump & Putin divide the world in half, like the Line of Demarcation? Or the division of Poland in WWII between Germany and Russia?

Can the FBI or Congress demand testimony from Trump's interpreter? It's frightening to think that only the Russians know what Trump said and agreed to, but not one American soul knows a thing. Trump is too stupid, greedy and unbalanced to be left in a room alone with the likes of Putin.

All roads look as though they lead to Moscow now concerning this U.S. president, and if Trump has done even one iota of what he's being accused of . . . well, then he's been a very bad boy and he's lucky that he's not in the military because they deal with this kind of crime most seriously.

Maybe the real reason is they haven't found anything yet so they are trying to justify the waste of taxpayers money by extending the scope and time hoping something shows up.

The Ballad of Don and Vlad (sung to the theme from the Beverly Hillbillies)

Let me tell you a little story about a man named Don.

A failed TV star who was just a simple con.

But then one day he was looking at the tube.

Saw the President and said “I can be him too!”

Imbecile…

Moron…

Well the first thing you know old Don’s his party’s pick.

His kinfolk said call Russia real darn quick.

They said Moscow is the place we need to cheat.

So he called his buddy Vlad and bowed real deep.

Russia that is, Disinformation, Internet Research Agency…

Well now it's time to say Goodbye to Don and all his ilk.

No one’s left for them to swindle, lie, and bilk.

You're all invited back next month, it’s going to be bad.

Impeached and jailed, just see him now no hairspray to be had.

Prison that is; bars, concrete walls.

You're obsessed with this flexibility point aren't you, Blacklabel? It is the typical tactic of the Trumpskis - when in weak ground deflect, defect and deflect.

Negotiatiating and compromising with foreign leaders is what Presidents do, but I would not expect an ex-President to still be talking about their minor victories. People move on.

You are confusing normal Presidents with the egotistical man-child that currently inhabits the White House.

You need proof of the cold war? The Soviet aggression in Afghanistan? Or do you need hundreds of links as to Trump's dodgy Russian connections and falsehoods? Many posters here, myself included, have posted such citations/links and news sources only for them to be unread and dismissed. Seems a bit of a waste of time.

Hmmm. I've criticised the Dems on plenty of occasions. I believe they're not much better than the Repubs (although there are honorable examples like Sanders and the new young turks coming up the ranks). I've said numerous times that the 2 party politics of the US will never solve its underlying problems.

Cold war? Reagan squashed that, but what does that have to do with Trump?

You asked about decades of conflict between Russia and the US, I gave it to you. As for what it has to with Trump, you can see how he's taken the Russian side and rewritten the history of the Soviet invasion to look more favorable to Russia. I presume you saw his comments the other week.

And No, I don’t care about the liberal opinionated conspiracy theories from liberals.

I reject your outrageous accusation that I am a liberal.

Now once again, what irrefutable and verifiable concrete facts do you have that can back up that outrageous accusation?

I thought you didn't care? Anyway, you've had all the links/citations/evidence/articles from myself and others over the last 2 years. Those who don't bother to read and discuss the research, don't deserve the time and patience that goes into supplying the doubters with said links.

What do you know that Mueller of the The witch hunters doesn’t? Please elaborate and put the personal feelings aside.

Ok, I’m sorry, but these idiots won’t get elected and even if they did, they would be one termers because their radical policies not only don’t make any sense whatsoever, but as typical socialists they never can explain how they would pay for their outrageous programs, never.

Should be easy, right? Everyone knows he is a traitor and an idiot and a puppet and this and that, don’t they? He surely colluded and collided and obstructed and destructed and no one likes him or will vote for him.

So when Trump wins again in 2020 it won’t be that no one believes this Russia nonsense. it will be that “the racists” wanted him re-elected. Got it. So it doesn’t really even matter if Mueller announces he found nothing, you will just return to “racism” and your other -isms.

So Carl Bernstein somehow knows for certain what’s in the Mueller report. Trump is either “a witting, unwitting, or half-witting pawn, certainly in some regards, to Vladimir Putin” . Yeah that’s not vague AT ALL. Sure he’s not 1/4 witting in a few regards? Give me a break.

Thats like a kid trying to write a book report when it’s obvious they didn’t read the book. Just throw all possible combinations out there so you can’t be wrong.

Because there may well be more andvif it isn't discovered, justice cannot be fully served.

Investigators of these types of matters don't release any information until they have concluded their investigation. This isn't a situation where some of the information needs to be made public in order to generate leads.

We know this isn't the situation for two reasons: (1) All the guilty pleas and verdicts along with the indictments; and, (2) the investigation hadn't been concluded.
