14 Hillary investigations and 0 for Trump

    House Republicans had 5 panels investigating Hillary's unsecured email server and another 9 investigations into Benghazi. In contrast, U.S. intelligence agencies have found:

    1. Repeated contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence.

    2. A propaganda campaign by Russian intelligence to win the election for Trump.

    3. Hacks by Russian intelligence into DNC and other Clinton-related accounts that led to publication of material helping Trump.

    4. A Donald Trump who thinks Putin is a great guy and our traditional allies are losers.

    How many investigations does the House have planned for Trump? Zero.

    Tell me, how is Hillary worthy of 14 failed investigations but Trump is worthy of none?

      Keep 'em comin! prosisem!  But this is the bad news: The Republicans got everything they wanted by wasting taxpayer's money on all those investigations because the American public is easily fooled.  They believed the "if there is enough smoke generated, we'll believe there is fire even when there is none" trick.  After Reagan got 240 Marines killed in Beirut in the 80s, do you know how many investigations there were? One.  And it was forgotten.  The question is: will the Ds fight as dirty as the Rs?  If not, they'll keep losing.  If they do, then we all lose.

        Funny, I had forgotten all about that and I sure that the hypocrite GOP has managed to conveniently forget it as well.

        Progressives are gentlepeople fundamentally, but with the right wingers the gloves must come off.

          You forgot about Reagan getting 240 Marines killed? I suppose you also don't remember that W. Bush got 3 million Iraqi children killed?

            Your missing the point GA, 240 marines were killed under Reagan's watch. Was he subject to the same scrutiny as to responsibility and accountability? Your teflon President never seemed to have anything stick, while the GOP blamed Obama for a raining day?I also remember a President that waged an attack on Iraq in 2003 that was unjustified, so Bush has to live with the result of his lack of vision and the criticism in regards to the associated carnage.

            I am coming after Trump, regardless, though the heavens may fall.

              Hey Cred, my only point was that the quoted comment was a lie. My only other point to you was to associate that lie with one that is another common sentiment.

              It seems you couldn't abandon that lie completely, so you note that it still happened "under Reagan's watch." Then you toss in a bunch of other stuff.

              Come back to the point of my comment. Do you think Pres. Reagan "got 240 Marines killed in Beirut?

              Your response to Kathleen certainly sounded like agreement.

                I hear you GA, no more than Carter was directly responsible for the Iran hostage crisis of 1979. But the President is the man that is ultimately held responsible, in any case, right?

            I also remember the 4,000 young people Bush II got killed for apparently no good reason.  Why do people keep voting for this party?

              Do you remember the 500 thousand that were killed is and around Aleppo?  The ones that were killed due to Obama's red line in the sand...  Under the Obama nonadministrative the United States sat by and watched GENOCIDE!  We did nothing, we did not even set up safe zones. WE DID NOTHING. So if your keeping score Republicans verses Demarcates... You lost. What a bitter glib statement  Why do people keep voting for this party?"

                We primarily didn't commit troops to Syria because after a decade of war our military was and is depleted.  We wasted our resources.  They are not unlimited.  We didn't do nothing.  We just didn't send in troops.  That option isn't always the best option.  It is so easy to say send them, the one percent of us who serve, when we aren't the ones being sent.  You want to go into Syria?  Pack your bags and go yourself.

          Darn tootin they do! Pacifists believed that the nation was relatively benign with a few extremist groups that are present in every society. They are supposed to keep us on our toes, and they did a GREAT JOB this time around, LoL!

          But, when your visions & dreams for the country you love the most are basically being p*ssed on by a few hardcore jerks who managed to claw their way up onto the national soap box - its time to learn a few lessons from them, take the gloves off, fight like they do & by their rules.

          I grew up in a conservative Christian right-wing home; and I learned how to do that very well - and yeah, Dems could stand to take a few lessons. But of course, every time THEY try to act like the GOP - the grand old party cries & fusses like a toddler throwing a fit on the sidewalk. Its so loud, its all their supporters can hear - plus, its all they WANT to hear.

          The GOP can do no wrong... That is a misconception that has been embedded into the minds of their supporters for far too long. These four years will hopefully expose them for what they are. They haven't always been like this; and they certainly didn't start out that way. Its a crying shame that party has sunk so low and dragged so many well-intended people down with it.

            We have a chance with congressional midterms in 2018, ifTrump continues in his outrageous behavior and screws people out of the benefits of Obamacare, repeal and not replace, and finally if he stands by like a big dummy while the GOP dismantles Social Security and Medicare, we will have him out in no time.

      Thank you for making this so clear a second grader could understand it. Maybe it will make some think about who they should be supporting, and all the fake blown-out of proportion news. We have a new President, time to respect the office, like I had to do when Obama won....

        I'm so tired of making this point.  Can people not tell the difference between a man with character and one with none?  After all Trump did to show who he was during the campaign, if the people who voted for him can't see him for who he is - they are beyond help.  But God help the rest of us.

          Do you as a rule judge anyone and everyone? And if so, why do you think you have that right?  Did you ever consider, your opinion may be flawed, and that you have no right to infer that anyone  who voted for trump is in need of help?  Hopefully God will help you, help you stop being so self righteous....

            Anyone who voted for Trump needs help in seeing the world as it is because they put their own political party above the needs of the country.

            It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that most of the people who voted for Trump did so simply because he was a Republican and ignored his mental instability.

            Yes, the same is true of Democrats and Clinton. But hundreds of Republican leaders and former officials during the campaign said Trump is unfit for office. To their credit, they looked beyond their biases in favor of what is good for the country.

          We have a new president creating a new world order. One in which the USA is irrelevant; it is a ranting, inarticulate, bungling vulgarian, and Russia and China now assume the roles of Super Powers.  The New President has alienated long time allies: Mexico, the European Union, China, all majority Muslim Nations.  He sits in his country club discussing national security emergencies in front of the Japanese PM, the waiters and other country club members. (They pay big dues so they deserve to see the show). When WWIII comes, it will be the world against the bullying USA.

          This new president is so ill-equipped for the position, that he continues to obsess over an imaginary voter fraud and crowd size at his rainy inauguration, endlessly texting "sad" missives at 3:00 am, while he bungles foreign policy and fails to understand simple concepts like "is a strong dollar good or bad for the economy."  And he ran as an uber businessman... Shucks they teach that in Economics 101.

      I see the world for what it is.  I don't buy into any party... you still want to deny what made Trump popular.  He was the Anti-Establishment candidate and Clinton was the poster child for all the corruption and disconnect in D.C.
      And what killed Hillary's chances most, wasn't the issue of Comey bringing up he emails again, heck I think he did that as a favor to the Dems so that could take away the focus on what had really riled up the people two days prior.
      News that Obamacare was going up from 50% to 150% ... when people found out ACA costs were skyrocketing, all those millions of people stuck paying for that garbage (the deductibles and other restrictions made it worthless) were lost, as were any of their family members who cared.  The ACA more than anything killed the Democrats.

        Ken, you say you don't buy into any party, but I think I'm being fair and accurate when I say you lean more to the right than to the left.

        I don't deny what made Trump popular. I understand that quite a few people voted for him as an anti-Establishment candidate. So far, he has proven he is all Establishment and just as corrupt.

        I didn't like Clinton any more than a lot of people. But the polls showed her lead evaporated after the Comey letter came out.

        Please do more research on ACA costs from credible sources. They are not nearly as high as you propose.
