    That's probably the scariest thing about this whole thing... that he's such a moron and still managed to do so much damage.

    I’m sorry, but I don’t care what side of the isle you’re on, no one should be in favor of meddling in our elections, even if it means your side wins. That’s traitorous.

    Not sure what you're asking here. I mean, obviously @Tererun is using short hand; a piece of paper cannot convict anyone of anything, and collusion itself isn't the name of a listed crime, so what is meant is, "The investigation summarized in the Mueller report led to the conviction of a number of people for crimes committed in order to collude with Russia." Manafort's illegal funds come from Russia, he's convicted and his business partner Gates has plead guilty. Meanwhile, Papadopoulos and Flynn have plead guilty for, and Stone is charged with, lying about facilitating contacts with Russia. Several more minor actors on the list linked above.

    If you think ageism is bad now, just wait till the rationed healthcare begins! Oh wait, Prez dismantled that.

    You mean the rationed healthcare that happened when insurance companies were still allowed to set lifetime limits, refuse coverage to people with pre-existing conditions, or cut people off of their plans for getting sick?

    Exactly true.

    Moscow Mitch literally came right out and said that the bipartisan reform bills he won't put on the Senate floor would give Democrats an electoral advantage - the inescapable logic then says that NOT securing the election works to Republicans' electoral advantage.

    To the extent that Trump is a Putin tool, it's almost certain that his own massive ego doesn't allow him to be aware of it, he literally thinks everything he does is right and justified and even heroic.

    BUT

    Mitch is a fully self aware agent of foreign influence for profit with no obvious signs of loyalty to this country. Possibly this began by marrying the daughter of a big Chinese insider?

    Wow, I didn’t realize how stupid they made Mueller look, he couldn’t even remember who appointed him. Even a lefty like Jimmy Dore sees through the bulshit.

    It's absurd to think Mueller didn't know exactly what he was doing. That was something like his 11th or 12th time testifying before Congress. He wasn't nervous. He wasn't unprepared. He wasn't confused about what was in the report. When there was a piece of factual information he wanted to convey, he didn't stumble. He just refused to play along whenever he thought anybody was grandstanding. He said all along he didn't want to be there in the first place. :shrug:

    Who wants to testify before Congress? Tough tities. You must not have seen the same clip I did because he looked pretty confused to me.

    Even Democrats were commenting on Mueller's actions during the hearing. The man was clearly not all there and that is in their own words.

    Meh. You'd hear many of them saying that, no matter how he might have sounded, simply because he didn't say that Trump should be immediately yanked out of the White House and hung up by his balls. :shrug:

    He would probably enjoy it if some hookers pissed on him and Pelosi, AOC, and Clinton whipped him.

    Actually, I am pretty sure being pissed on while Pelosi, AOC, and Clinton whips him was @Zombie 's wet dream last night.

    They were disappointed he wouldn't play along and give them the sound bites they wanted. Which there was no reason to expect he would. His testimony was always going to be 100% factual and accurate, but presented in a way that doesn't make for a compelling spectacle. He clearly didn't see it as his job to prosecute the President in the court of public opinion.

    That was never his purpose either. The dems should have let him say prosecuting the president was congresses job, and the investigations to impeachment are not a part of the justice department's agenda or what their investigation was meant to do. Let him remind everyone his report and investigation lead to the prosecution, confessions, and convictions of multiple actors in the trump campaign for multiple campaign violations, and for working as Russian agents. He should also have been a ble to claim on the floor of congress that Trump's claims he exonerated him were completely false and that is he was not immune from prosecution as president they might have acted on evidence they found had they been considering it.

    Instead everything is about trump when nothing can be done about him. They dems are trying to use Mueller to get around the corrupt nature of congressional republicans who will allow any republican president to break any law and refuse to do their job to remove corruption and criminal activity from their party. Pelosi and the other dems are afraid to do that because for the mist part they would also be guilty of similar corruption and they know once they hit republicans they will also have to answer for their own corruption and illegal activities.

    A reporter asked him if he'd stand for Trump saying his wife should "go back to where she came from".

    He just stared out of that pillow sack he calls a face with his dead eyes.

    Meh. 74 year old dude has apparently a spot of hearing loss which caused him to occasionally "WTF?" when a Congressman tried to cram a five minute statement into a one minute "question."

    Do be a lad and hurry to stop the presses.
