    Hmm should I trust the law enforcement sources every credible news organization is citing, or should I again trust an anonymous internet poster unwilling to provide evidence to back up their assertions?


    Hmmmm



    Or should I once again not give a fuck on those technicalities which distract from the real story?





    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm............

    They want to interview Priebus, reportedly about Comey's firing. He was a witness to the 14 Feb. meeting where Comey claims Trump "hoped" he would drop the Flynn investigation. Also, Comey said there was an 8 Feb. meeting with Priebus where he explained the protocol of not discussing the details of open investigations with the White House. Remember, Paul Ryan and other Republican leaders have said that Trump, as a political newcomer, just didn't know he wasn't supposed to interfere with ongoing investigations for political reasons. It was just an honest mistake. If Trump had been made aware such interference was improper, and that was why he sent everybody out of the room before speaking to Comey about Flynn, it could go a long way to establishing the mens rea that would be a crucial component of any obstruction charge.

    And what if farts actually smelled like roses? That seems more likely to happen then the conspiracy theory the right is pushing. Every single last one of the western intelligence agencies agree it was a Russian hack so enough with the fairy tales.

    Story is under post-publication editorial review:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/blog...n-russian-hack-of-dnc/?utm_term=.7fe4f7df929b


    I would add that there are elements on the far left who have been skeptical of Russian interference all along. This is due to their entrenched distrust of U.S. intelligence agencies, and also because many have tended to support Russia as a counter to what they perceive as American imperialism. Despite how they may feel about Trump, they share his contempt for the "deep state."

    Reports that President Trump asked Mitch McConnell to illegally obstruct the Russian Collusion investigation but that McConnell, to his credit, refused saying to do so would be improper (thus Trump's tweet storm against McConnell). Reportedly, McConnell also demanded that Trump stop attacking fellow Republicans or else he may see impeachment sooner rather than later. After all it is the votes of the men Trump is attacking which he will need to avoid any potential impeachment. Sadly, Trump is too stupid to think beyond the moment.

    Staffers have also said the privately McConnell has expressed doubts that Trump can save his presidency.

    Speaking of pee tapes... The former British intelligence official who composed the Trump Dossier has reportedly testified to the FBI (which will all go directly to Mueller) and provided all of his original sources now that British Intelligence has agreed to cooperate with the FBI investigation.

    https://www.google.com/amp/www.nyda...ources-trump-dossier-report-article-1.3433372

    I keep hoping Putin finally gets so fed up with Trump that he releases the pee tape.

    given the momentary structural advantage the GOP has in terms of controlling Congress, particularly the Senate the knowledge that Trump is wrecking the party from within gives me considerable solace about the outcome of the election. If he doesn't get us all killed, he might yet turn out to be a boon to the nation in the exact opposite way than which his supporters had thought

    ^Good luck with that; many said the same thing about Obama, but we can see it led to Trump.

    [And yet, if America sees growth rates continuing to improve and a couple more right-of-center jurists ascend to top ct., it might not turn out to be a complete backfire after all. And trump's certainly been a boon to the low entertainment value.]

    who said ANYTHING about Obama internally dividing the Dems? Remember, when he was elected I was on the other side - that never happened.
    That said, the court- assuming judges vote like the one who appoints them expects- is a problem that won't go away.
