Today 's interviews with Sec. of HS and Steve Bannon proved one thing, it's dang hard to get the truth out of any of Trump's cronies and appointees. Bannon's refusal to answer questions before the House Committee led to his being subpoenaed by both the House and Special Counselor Mueller.
In a different interview before the Senate, Sec. of Homeland Security has a memory loss about the infamous "S#ithole/house meeting a week ago. It really is remarkable how those near Trump cannot remember meeting Russians or what they heard when with our venerable leader. Do you think it's beginning to look a bit fishy, or is there really an amnesia epidemic raging through the White House.
And yes, I know I misspelled security.
UPDATE: After many hours dodging questions the subpoena was acquired, and now it's said "Sloppy Steve" is cooperating fully with the House Panel. He's been behind closed doors for over 12 hours now hopefully spilling his guts. Mueller gets the next shot at him.
Look at the bright side Randy, your party's favorite Senator Booker will be a shoo-in for the 2018 "I am a Thespian" award for Over-Acting. I think I saw some of the other Democrat committee members reaching for biscuits to sop up the sincerity drippings.
I will leave you to your judgement about her dancing around saying what she heard, but I think she portrayed an extremely intelligent and capable persona. I was pleasantly surprised.
Yo GA, I sorta figured you'd accept her amnesia. You don't think she was covering for Trump?
How could you tell Booker wasn't sincere in his anger at what he conceived of her coincidental amnesia? I'd like to be able to have that gift.
You don't have anything to add about Bannon?
You do have "that gift" Randy, we all have it. Whether it is used or not, or how it is used, is a different matter.
Whether I accept Neilson's (sp?), "amnesia" - or not, would depend on what I know about the circumstances of the meeting. And since all I know is what I have heard on CNN, or read in various media articles, it would be presumptuous of me to doubt her, or, to convict her as a liar, or "a good soldier." Aren't you concerned about that too?
Bannon is an interesting story. I am all atither, waiting for the next episode. I remember hearing about those "Who shot JR?" parties, Or maybe a better analogy would be a "tailgate" party. Either one covers the point.
It's good to know I have the "gift", GA. Does that mean my suspicions about Trump being a traitor are true?
You couldn't tell the Sec. was avoiding answering the questions truthfully, but you could tell Booker was acting? Careful there GA, you might commit yourself to something.
If you think Pres. Trump is a "traitor" Randy, then I think you missed the instructions that came with your gift.
Of course I could tell she was avoiding answering the questions - the way the questioners wanted her to answer them.
As for Booker... It sure looked like acting, (over-acting), to me. We will have to wait for the awards committee's vote to see who is right.
Regarding me committing to something... As a dear old friend and riding buddy would say, "There you go again..."
Instead of using assumptions Randy, you should use your gift. I think I constantly display multiple commitments in these forums; A commitment not to sound like a partisan flak. A commitment not to draw conclusions from too few, or tainted facts. A commitment to not be the one that grabs the brush from the tar bucket. And the hardest commitment of all to keep; abide the thought rather than open my mouth and remove the doubt.
I'm not assuming Trump is an honest man because he lies on a daily basis, GA. I'd like to be able to believe my president, especially on important topics, but that's just me. You guys don't seem to care if he lies or his cronies take his lead. His statement of "the press is the enemy of the nation" quotes Stalin who even Khrushchev prohibited the statement.
Trump's calling facts "fake news" is another indication he want's to be a despot instead a leader of a free country. But keep taking up for the buffoon if you feel he's good for the country and the free press.
I'm sure you'll watch Trump's fake news award show and probably love it, but that may be just my "gift" being in error again.
She seemed very bright. She was quite good at avoiding answering the question of what Trump said, like a good soldier.
It is LYING......COVERING UP.....,not so-called amnesia. Nielsen was well aware of what Trump said about Haiti, El Salvador, & some African countries. Nielson maintained that Trump used some rough language; however, she conveniently claimed that she "couldn't recall" what Trump stated. What a LIAR!
Chief of DHS was not impressive to me. She pretended not to know Norway was predominantly white European, and yet her ancestry goes back the Swede/Norwegian.
Her voice was getting shaky when she had no Big Beautiful Wall answers for questions like: How much will the eminent domain compensation cost us (I don't know) how much territory will be required in the set back (I don't know) how many coast guard cutters, TSA and ICE personnel could we purchase/hire with the $18 billion you want allocated for the wall (I don't know). She was about to break, but then he lost his round of questioning, and she had time to recomposed herself. Her testimony there reminded me of the lawyer who had never tried a case being put up for a judicial appointment.
I don't know why everyone has to lie about what he said, including the shithead who said it. If you are ashamed, make an apology; don't lie and force everyone else to lie for you too. No backbone, a craven coward. Won't visit any troops in combat zones, because his heel spurs start acting up, old military school injury.

Everyday we get closer to answering the big questions: where did the Universe come from, how did life form on Earth, and what is the origin of humanity? Now, it appears that we're one step closer to answering at least one of the "Big Three": How Did Life Form On Earth. Biochemists have...

Gas prices are soaring as usual under Republican leadership. This will hurt middle and lower classes more than it does those who got the lions' share of the tax cuts. Not only do we have to repay the Chinese for the money we borrowed , we now have to pay higher prices for fuel. I hope those wanted...

Steve Bannon is willing to discuss the Trumps and the Russians. Is this different from all other discussion of the Russians. Will Breitbart News start attacking Trump? Will Trump's base have to choose between Trump and Bannon?

I watched Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus at CPAC state the following:"Nearly all of Trump’s cabinet choices are known mostly for despising and attacking the very Federal agencies they’ve been designated to lead. Bannon explained—in very clear language--that they weren't appointed to...

Let’s keep it FACTUAL: A living and evolving repository to store ALL the public evidence, both criminal and civil which exists against Mr. Trump, his family and associates including Michael Cohen, there appears to be more than enough damning evidence to reach a guilty verdict for the average...
