Just remember, after the Watergate Hearing revelations and, Nixon maintained a loyal core constituency of about 25 percent of those polled who approved of his performance as president.

Some people will never be swayed.

I remind myself: we don't need them

Mueller will testify. He will persuade enough.

I think Mueller will be mostly diplomatic with his answers. He doesn’t want the burden of the decision on his shoulders but he will answer honestly. The Dems will get a good point of view to rely on.

Not much will change on the ground. Trump fans know their guy is scum and they love it. It’s their revenge on America for leaving them behind.

The game of "alternative facts" was started in the Trump WH.

I think it started with Clinton and then went on to Comey and then to the witch hoax starter, Bob Mueller and now he’s going into a very compromising situation. Good luck to him, he’s going to need it.

Another reason why people don’t get the Trump factor.

Then Trump is a failure in communicating his message.

Amazing how Trump supporters will accept and forgive his very serious lies even though he's president while dismissing all others from the likes of his ex lawyer Cohen and what he had to say with Trump's sex with a porn star.

He’s now like the majority of politicians

How so easy you try to explain away and accept a serial liar. I find it disturbing that Trump has told so many. I would find it disturbing from any leader.

No, just an opportunistic one that is trying to seek attention and to do whatever they can to bring this President down.

You don't know that. Take a step back.

Most definitely, even when it comes to con artists. I don’t differentiate between men and women.

But you repeatedly laud and applaud a serial sex pest, a pathological liar and a man who prefers to fete dictators than allies.

You've been conned but you can't admit it.

That would be the same Michael Cohen who you previously championed on JT, yes?

Going to be hilarious when Mueller perjured himself. Or tells us he has no problem with how Barr represented his report. Or that no, he didn’t intend for Congress to continue his work and that it’s actually over.

Mueller doesn’t want to be there, can’t say I blame him, he’s going to be in a position to defend a lot of things that were questionable with this entire witch-hunt, once again the Democrats overplayed their hand and like the Billy Bush tapes, Stormy, the creepy porn lawyer, Michael Cohen and now the Grand Wizard himself, this is going to once again, probably even worse blow up in their faces and I’m looking forward to it.

Where's the proof? The proof is he admitted it! Listen to the Access Hollywood tape - he describes exactly what he did to E Jean Carroll.

No, he did not. Seriously where are you getting this garbage? Lol

It emanates from Donnie's mouth - and I agree with you, what comes out of it is garbage...

By the way, let’s say for arguments sake something did occur, this all happened during the height of the sexual revolution and once the pill was available, that completely changed the society and drugs, sex promiscuity was running rampant, women had more power and control over their bodies and as Carroll said to Anderson Cooper, she was able to leave the house, explore, so I’m just saying if anything occurred it was the time and era of free love, lust and drugs.

You're not serious are you? Was that a joke? You didn't try to offer an excuse for rape, did you?

A creepy pervert, just like Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby....who he'll be joining soon...

Yeah, that’ll never happen.

I notice you didn't object to the first part of the sentence...I'm glad we can all agree he is a creepy pervert.

I'm sure he'll put the "angry Democrats" fairly tale to rest once and for all - it's so pathetic and juvenile. Let's talk about those seven close Trump associates that met with Russians and lied about it. Let's talk about that Trump Tower meeting with Russians that Donnie dictated a false memo that said it was about adoptions. Let's talk about those 10 instances of obstruction of justice.

Ok, so in other words, the Dems have nothing.....again, that will make this one 3....or 4 attempts?

Anytime you see "in other words", it just means its time to deflect and dodge...

People are free to have sexual encounters whenever they like.

Thank you, you just made my point for me! In other words because of that fact, there is No way we can know what or if anything happened to this woman willingly or unwillingly and because it was the free sexual era, it’s her word against his and from the looks of how this story is turning out, pretty everyone thinks it’s another ruse.

And this apparently happened in 1996, not the 60s

No, it was the 60’s

But they do when people let them. Which is what he said.

have the right to grab/assault and rape women because they feel like it.

Great news! You do realize he has to answer questions from both sides right? Plus he can’t change any of the contents it conclusions of his report.

Cant wait.

People are free to have sexual encounters whenever they like. The actual era of sexual liberation was just more open than before. It still doesn't mean rich and powerful men have the right to grab/assault and rape women because they feel like it.

And this apparently happened in 1996, not the 60s.

PS. Can someone volunteer to be a fact checker when Trump and his supporters open their mouths? So much falsehoods and obfuscations...

Because for the same reason I believe in these women as much as you disbelieve Trump.

People only want to believe what they want to believe and see what they want to see, but the other problem is actions speak louder than words (especially documented and recorded ones). Trump's actions and words pretty much show what kind of person he is, past and present. Keep lying to yourself, but reality is a hard thing to deny in the end when the consequences come around full circle.

When a person lacks credibility based on what they say AND do, people can't believe them. Trump is the poster boy for this.

They are all lying? And if Trump hadn't been caught boasting on tape that he could sexually assault women - if someone had come forward saying that actually, yes, he grabbed her genitals, would you dismiss her if he said it never happened?

Be honest.

but just on the word alone, especially at the ironic times these women came out, the same way with Kavanaugh....sorry.

Ironic? They came out and said what happened, all knowing they would be vilified. That's bravery, that is.

Well TBH I think Trump could do that to one of his supporters' wives and they would take it.

Why do you Lol at sexual assault?

Because for the same reason I believe in these women as much as you disbelieve Trump.

How many women will it take to come forward before you believe them?

If they can show irrefutable proof as in Lewinsky’s case where there was visible DNA then you got my attention, but just on the word alone, especially at the ironic times these women came out, the same way with Kavanaugh....sorry.

ea, just 10 specific instances - Barr probably needed 17 - wait, that's how many women have accused Donnie of sexual assault - Barr will need more than that...

Ok, so they accused him....so where is the proof? Oh, wait....we’ve been down this empty road before. Lol

Where's the proof? The proof is he admitted it! Listen to the Access Hollywood tape - he describes exactly what he did to E Jean Carroll. A creepy pervert, just like Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby....who he'll be joining soon...

Didn't one of the Trumpers here say the other day that "Mueller is so over?" 

Wishful thinking....

It is over, the Dems want to stupidly re-open litigations on the entire thing? Good, they’re setting themselves up for failure again...can’t wait to see him cross examined on Strzok and Page, why he staffed his team with only angry Hillary Democrats, the list goes on and on, now I see why he really doesn’t want to testify....

This should be veeeery interesting.

Representative Doug Collins, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, said in a statement: "I hope the special counsel's testimony marks an end to the political gamesmanship that Judiciary Democrats have pursued at great cost to taxpayers."

Yeah, forget about the obstruction and other dubious avenues. Everything's fine, nothing to see.

21st century America's darkest era.

Attorney General William Barr said there was insufficient evidence in Mueller's report to conclude that Trump obstructed justice.

Yea, just 10 specific instances - Barr probably needed 17 - wait, that's how many women have accused Donnie of sexual assault - Barr will need more than that...
