Trump supporters will turn a blind eye to these allegations, just like how Hillary supporters turned a blind eye to the private server and Benghazi allegations.

 

There are no Benghazi allegations, and there never were.   Hillary was never accused of actually doing anything and time after time a congressional committee cleared her of all wrong doing, and time after time republicans then decided to have another committee.  

 

And even if there was some moral responsibility for Benghazi, how do the four deaths rate compared to the 241 deaths Reagan is therefore responsible for when he got the marines killed in Lebanon?  Or the 3000 deaths GWB caused on 9/11?  Also, you might ask yourself, but probably won't, why after Reagan killed those marines using Benghazi logic, why did the democrats in congress hold a hearing, decide better security was needed, and then move on?   Answer:  because in the 1980s congress didn't use national security and congressional committees as electoral weapons.

They do that to distract from the fact that they voted for a demented, grotesque pervert.

 

+1000.  Truer words have never been spoken.

If anything needed to be investigated it was the Bush administrations ignoring of intelligence forewarning 9/11 and also where the lie about the Weapons of Mass destruction in Iraq originated causing an invasion and loss of at least 4,000 more American lives. Hey but who cares. It was a republican so it doesn't matter.

If there is any merit to the allegations of Trump's lawyers  meeting in Prague with Russian reps and associated hackers, those golden showers will be the very least of Trump's problems.

Holy crap I didn't hear that one.

 

I did hear this arrangement went back 5 years ago. And that is was an arrangement between Putin and Trump to undermine democracies around the world.

 

 

Another democratic victory - maybe a smaller one

 

They succeeded in delaying the confirmation hearings on the cabinet members until ethics checks complete. I guess today was considered a disaster for the GOP

For someone who didn't vote, you've turned into one hell of a political wonk. 

 

I mean that as a compliment.

 

Well, it's what happens when I no longer watch the soaps.

 

(I will never forgive daytime TV for as long as I live.)

Oh, Little Jimmy Comey won't talk about the investigation into alleged ties between TrumpCo. and the Kremlin -- in fact, he won't even confirm whether there IS an investigation going on -- but he'll practically stage a Mitzi Gaynor special to inform us he's just gotta take another peek at Hillary's Damn Emails.

 

Seriously, when can we get rid of his basic ass?

 

Yes, Russia will get Trump and the GOP next.  And they will, and they should.  It's exactly what the GOP deserves.

I believe this is a message from the U.S. Intel. Community to Trump.....just telling him "We know where the skeletons are, we know where the rats are hiding, and if nothing is there....we'll put it there."

I am in tears. President Obama has been an extraordinary President and even a more exceptional man. It's not even about his accomplishments, it's about his honesty, dignity, and especially his love for this country and it's ideals. People don't know yet how much he will be missed. We haven't had a president with this kind of decency since Jimmy Carter.

Comey was probably rewarded with a golden shower by a prostitute of his own choice. Or he just got cash.

I agree. I think I am keeping emotions locked inside and as a result, my head is starting to hurt. It hasn't altogether hit me, the absence that will befall us and I was so locked into every word and image, I wanted to stay in the moment. I'm going to need to hold onto those words and images in the future for those times I really need them.
