"To me it has nothing to do with immigration. It has to do with whether or not the president can spend money that Congress didn’t give to him," Paul told reporters after the lunch.
Yep. Trump supporters see this as a wall. People like Rand understand that it's about granting the President powers to fund pet projects that Congress has denied.
And it doesn't go away when Trump goes away. It will be there for future Presidents to raid.

Everyone knows Trump is corrupt. The argument is whether there is enough evidence to indicted. That's what everyone is speculating about.
But make no mistake...even Trump fans know he's corrupt. But a corrupt president who targets minorities is much, much preferrable to a straight president who doesn't.

blacklabel: Everything else is a process crime as a result of the investigation itself.
I had to research "process crime."
In United States criminal procedure terminology, a process crime is an offense against the judicial process. These crimes include failure to appear, false statements, obstruction of justice, contempt of court and perjury.
So I guess what you're saying is that all these people did was lie and obstruct justice, but they didn't collude with Russia? OK. I guess that works. These are your people so you're free to give them a pass for things like perjury. But don't forget about the SDNY.
What I'm most interested in seeing is how things played out with Trump, Trump Jr., Stone, Wikileaks, and Russian Intelligence. My guess is that the Mueller report will show them all operating on the same page. And if that's true then it's good that it comes to light.
I'm also interested in know what internal information Manafort sent to Russian intelligence. Polling data doesn't really raise my pulse, but let's say if it's a full report from Cambridge Analytica that the Russians could then use to strategically place ads on Facebook. Should be fun to see.
It should also contain a comprehensive list of lies by Trump and his team in their quest to cover up any relationship with the Russians at all. Another fun read.
The inauguration investigation will probably result in indictments. I mean you literally have one person writing in an email "reminding" people that these things can be audited. Who knows what will happen with Weisselberg but getting the docs should be a good read.
Lots still to be played out. Can the proven scammer clear his...um....good name?

arrestpaul: It's the Democrats who are pretending that they have some idea of the inner workings of the investigation.
You must be new here.
Last I checked the GOP posters have told us that they know the inside of Mueller's mind, and he's motivated by his intense hatred of Trump. Have you heard that he's forced fake confessions and allegations out of Trump's people? They were in the room at the time, I guess. According to them Mueller wakes up every morning and does his best to pin a crime on an innocent man and they know this because they know the inner workings of the investigation.
Have you seen the FISA document? Me neither, but they have, and they can tell you what's in it and how much it was used by the judge who decided to keep the investigation going. How about the IG's investigation? It didn't put a dent in their mind reading abilities as they tell us he got it wrong.
They also know this whole thing started because people wanted to remove an elected President. They learned that by using their mind's eye and looking into the entire FBI.
Stay here a while and you'll see all of these in some form or another.

Nah, the DACA argument was created for non college educated Trump fans. This is about giving the President the authority to raid military funds for pet projects.

So let's take inventory:
blacklabel: It's Obama's fault.
extanker: It's Otto Warmbier's fault.
Serrano: Trump was right to appease Un.
bass: Democrats, liberals, Iran, Democrats, liberals.
blue in green: Trump is the victim.
Helix: Trump should have cleared not just Un but NK entirely as this evidence suggests. So maybe the point was Trump was too hard on him? Not 100% sure with this one.
The fact is Trump gave yet another cover story for a dictator, another one of whom is our enemy, all based on their "word." It comes across that these people can play him like a fiddle. He should be able to see this. People around him should tell him not to this anymore.

Almost as if he's the victim.

I take Putin at his word he didn't meddle in the election.
I take Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's at his word that he didn't know about the mirdered journalist.
I take Kim's at his word that he didn't know about Warmbier's treatment.

Of course not. In this situation you appease.

The Art of the Bad Deal.

blacklabel: Can’t just correctly say he walked away from a bad deal. It’s against the narrative.
Well when we send in a master negotiator we expect more than just a bad deal as the result. It's his unique talent that's supposed to get us a winning deal, but Trump doesn't have the skills for it.
blacklabel: i think every article just exists as a way to say Cohen, Russia or Mueller over and over. No new information just same thing every day.
Yesterday Fox had a headline that Ocasio-Cortez, who says people should eat less meat, was seen having lunch with someone who was eating a hamburger.
That's not a joke.
