    I am just curious about the media and some on the left who bought into this investigation by Mueller.
    Now, with all the recent revelations and crimes commited by top FBI officials and the Comey book...
    How many are now convinced that this was a witch hunt? Concocted by the DOJ and FBI high ranking officials and possibly even to the Obama administration and the Hillary campaign...?
    When will this end?
    The count down begins. I give it 90 days...

      You mean how many more days until Spanky goes to prison? Not many more we pray: The evidence against him already is monumental and Michael Cohen will flip and Spanky can't do zip about it:

      Spanky confessed to obstruction of justice to Lester Holt on national television, and he violates our constitution every single day by accepting money from foreign adversaries, he's GONE and so is Pence:

        This is what happens when we fail to hold people responsible for wrong doings.
        It happened under the Obama administration and now you want to apply a different set of rules.
        It doesn’t work that way. 
        What was good for Hilllary is good for Trump.
        There is no crime, or no intent of crime as James Comey defined it. That is the bottom line.

        Jake,  "The evidence against him already is monumental ". I would like you to post just one piece of evidence that you feel will subsequently put president Trump in jail.  Please keep your one piece of evidence factual. Something that has been proven to be a fact.  Fact - a thing that is indisputably the case.

          Soon we will find out if the United States still has valid laws or if a fake orange hued corrupt president is above them:

          Here's just one tiny morsel of terminal evidence against Spanky Trump: The only possible way this could have been worse for this Russian poodle is if he actually said 'I fired Comey to obstruct justice': This taped interview which aired on national television with millions of witnesses worldwide, includes his obstruction confession: STUNNING:

          His confession is astounding enough, but I'm still baffled as to why his friends and family allow him to go out in public looking like this, especially for a filmed interview::

                  Macron knows exactly how Spanky feels every minute of the day by reading his tweets and he knows compliments are the best way to manipulate and mold him just like Kim Jung Un made Spanky draw about 10 red lines that he FAILED to enforce over the course of a year:

            Jake, I  watched the interview when it aired, and no once again. Please do me the courtesy of quoting where you heard the president  make any form of statement that would indicate he obstructed justice or confessed to doing anything?    "His confession is astounding"  He gave his reason for firing Comey several times during the interview. Claiming he was a Show-boater, and incompetent". He also had a recommendation to fire Comey form Rod Rosenstein the Acting Deputy Attorney General.. I will await your quote. Please don't  deflect.  I Heard no confession ...

      The Benghazi investigations lasted 1,547 days or more than 4 years. Since collusion is much more serious, we have plenty of time left.

      And considering they already have 19 indictments with more to come, this has gone way beyond a "witch hunt".

            How far back should Mueller investigate? 1 year, 5 years, 10 years or till his birth 70 years?
            What crimes are attributed to him and what crimes attributed to his underlings...?

            What is your definition of hih crimes and misdemeaners? As you are aware, that is what impeachment and removal of a sitting president entails.

      What are you talking about? She got away with it, the FBI under Comey cleared her.
      She has nothing to fear. There are people in prison today for “unintentional” miss handling of classified information. She on the other hand, avoided FOIA, created a home grown server, allowed classified documents to sit in that server, then deleted 30,000 emails and desteoyed her blackberry and cell phones and bleached her lap tops...
      Her dealing of Uranium one and the Clinton foundation are perfectly fine. She had no “bad” intent according to Comey.

          She destroyed US government property. If you and I did that, we would be facing jail time for sure.
          She and her husgpband took in millions from foreign entity in the Uranium One deal while she was secretary of State...
          She got away easy in my humble opinion.

                https://www.factcheck.org/2017/10/facts-uranium-one/

                Bill didn't get paid millions. Money went to the Clinton's charitable foundation. "There is no evidence that the donations or the speaking fee had any influence on the approvals granted by the NRC or the Committee on Foreign Investments." - FactCheck.org

                If the Clintons are corrupt, then fine, indict them. But quit spreading falsehoods that have no basis in fact, especially after SO MANY investigations. This BS propaganda is distracting the country from solving real problems and not fake news ones.

He should have been convicted of impeachment and they should have been sent packing from DC the first time around. The reason we have a Trump Presidency now, IMHO, is ironically due to the Clintons in power all these years. They got Hillary elected to NY Senate, not having lived in NY any time before that. They them elected Obama who appointed her Secretary of State. You think all of this came about by accident?

                  They are corrupt and when we allow people who are corroupt to stay in office, guess what they are corrupted even more... crime pays...

                Hey jackclee, I see that promisem has already addressed this, and his points were correct, (well, at least about the Hillary approval part), but we all know how Left-wing biased  he is, (That was a Joke! OMG! See what you have done PrettyPanther, I am not good at walking on eggs - or being completely transparent), so I thought a Purple challenge to your claims might at least prompt you to look a little deeper. Particularly the part about her department not being able to directly make the deal, and the part about State's approval being only one of nine approvals needed.

                But, the point about Bill's speaking fees - in the time-frame of the approval process, and relative to Russian engagement(s), (wasn't there just one suspicious looking event?), does lend itself to a few speculative Hmms...

                  I agree with you -- OMG back at you, I agree with you -- that the contributions to the Clinton foundation were an obvious example of money influence for the possible sake of her one vote. Then again, that seems to be common in American politics. I don't think it's any different than campaign contributions to any politician.

                  So does it rise to the standard of corruption? It depends on whether you hate Hillary, love her or don't care about her one way or another. I'm in the third camp.

                  My point was it was the Clintons that corrupted our political system. Before him, we did not have presidents starting a foundation getting contributions from foreign powers... The foundation raised many millions of dollar and yet very few $ went to help the people they were supposed to help.
                  It became a slush fund for his family, Hilliary and Chelsea to use for their travel and weddings and condos..,
                  When the FBI was asked to investigate it, people from the Justice department told them to shut it down... That is how our government agencies also got corrupted...when the DOJ and the FBI cannot be trusted, who can you trust?

                    That is a different point than your earlier statements. You may be right that the Clintons did introduce a new model of corruption - it would be a debatable topic of itself, but I think it might be more of an adaption to the times than a birth of corruption.

                    Even if your thoughts about the Clinton Foundation corruption were true, (that is what some would debate), it is still not a new corruption. It is just a different version of a game that has been around since our earliest political days.

                    I am not defending the Clintons, just offering some focus to your broad claims.

          By the way, I watched those house investigations painfully. The questions were long winded political statements from both party. They did not want to get to the bottom of the Benghazi affair for whatever the reason. It was a show and the people had wool pulled over their eyes. The people on the ground were never called to testify...how come? The people making misleading statements were Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes and Hillary Clinton...She got promoted and Hillary ran for President... If I had my way, I would ban all future house and Senate investigations. They mean nothing and got nothing as a conclusion.,,

      Could what was done to Bernie Sander's campaign by the DNC, (by all accounts HDNC - Hillary's Democrat National Committee), be counted as trying to rig an election? And could the issue of Valeant's thread, (if it has merit), be counted as trying to use illegal actions to buy an election?

    Jack, One would think by the lack of any indictments connected to the  2016 presidential campaign it may end soon.  However, I hope that Mueller will expend all avenues. We don't want any stone upturned or leave any recourse for anyone to request any further investigations into the campaign. Just my opinion but it feel like it is coming to an end. 

    To answer your other questions.  I believe it's a witch hunt. I am also convinced that many crimes were committed by the Clinton campaign, the Clinton's, Mccabe, Comey, and  many others  that are still working in the  DOJ.

      With all due respect, do you know what happened at Benghazi?

It was about a video that started this protest...we we told by Susan rice... how did she know? She was at the UN...
      This story as we learned years later was concocted by Ben Rhodes at the White house...
      So you say Hillary is gulity until proven innocent. Where is the guilt, and what penalty has she paid..
      She lied to one of the parents at the tarmac when the bodies came home...

      Once it was exposed, they had to cover up this fiasco.
      That was the reason the investigation was white washed.,.

      Someone at the State department, very hogh up gave the order not to send a rescue team. Who was this person? We still don’t know.
      Trey Gowdy has been a huge disapppointment. He goes on tv shows and gave interviews and nothing ever comes out of these investigations. Isn’t congress suppose to provide over sight?

      This investigation into Benghazi was to determine what happened and who is responsible and how to fix it so that it does not happen again...
      After 4 years, I am afraid we learned nothing. 4 Americans died. The people responsible are promoted and given a pass. It was “the fog of war” they claimed. Except, we were not in a war were we?
      The CIA operatives were told to stand down...the air strikes were called off. 13 hours went by...
      You want me to believe there was nothing we could have done in this particular case.
      A few rioters were able to take down an embassy outpost and killed 4 Amercians with impunity.
      The Bengazhi affair was a failure in the highest level.
      An election result was in the balance. If the truth be known, AObama may not been re-elected in 2012. History would be much different.

      The Monica incident was a side show. Unfortunately, Ken Starr chose to make that the prime offense.

      If there was obstruction, of couse that is to be investigated. If there was potential for blackmail by Russians, that would be serious...
      The payout to Daniels is small potatoe.

      So far, Mueller has nothing on Trump. If he did, it would have been leaked long ago.

    I suppose it is important that a body does convince itself of its relevance in this universe.

    I grew up with my dad constantly telling me the Democrats were the good party because we weren't rich. Poor Dad, I guess a lot of things which were once truisms no longer are.

    Since the Trump election, I have seen so much hatred from persons who think themselves to be somehow superior to non Democrats, that I will never in my life vote for a Democrat.

        Exhibit A: Here's a picture which depicts the attendees who were present at the infamous 'Trump Tower Meeting" in 2016 which according to Donny Junior, was predicated on discussing the transfer or exchange of hands of property which could have influenced and subverted our election and to discuss sanctions on Russia:

        Russian spies and top Trump campaign officials accepted the meeting subsequent to Donny Junior's receipt of an E-Mail from a Russian operative stating in paraphrase that he or they had dirt on Hillary: Keep in mind, the astonishing treasonous fact that these are Russian spies, out arch enemy conversing with Donny Junior:

        Donny, in paraphrase, said that's great via E*Mail and we still don't know if Trump officials including Donny Junior were aware that the dirt was stolen United States property but S. Bannon:said there's no way Trump senior was unaware of this unbelievable conspiratorial meeting event:

      "But in a dissenting document, Democrats on the committee accused the Republicans of prematurely closing the investigation out of a desire to protect Mr. Trump and asserted that eagerness by Trump campaign associates to accept offers of Russian assistance suggest “a consciousness of wrongfulness, if not illegality.”

      In other, more simple and plain words, the Democrats wanted to continue the "investigation" in an effort to find political dirt that might harm Trump or the Republican party.  They couldn't find anything illegal so wanted to expand into simple mudslinging, using the "investigation" as a tool to accomplish that.

    Russian from Trump Tower meeting: 'I am a lawyer, and I am an informant'

    And in an interview set to be broadcast Friday on "NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt” and on MSNBC's "On Assignment with Richard Engel," Veselnitskaya calls herself an "informant" for the Russian government, an admission that goes further than her previous claims of just being a private attorney.

    “I am a lawyer, and I am an informant,” she says in the NBC interview. “Since 2013, I have been actively communicating with the office of the Russian prosecutor general.”

    The admission also comes despite testimony Veselnitskaya submitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee in November, in which she claimed no connection to Russian President Vladimir Putin's government.

    “I operate independently of any governmental bodies,” she wrote in November. “I have no relationship with Mr. Chaika, his representatives and his institutions other than those related to my professional functions as a lawyer.”

    Veselnitskaya was referring to Yuri Chaika, Russia's prosecutor general, for whom on Friday she admitted to being a regular source of information.

                    I'm not sure you should play the racism card, given the Obama administration's record re improving the lives in the black community. Although a long line of administrations, both Democrat and Republican, have presided over a steady decline in the economic prospects, education, and quality of life of the black community, Obama did nothing to halt this decline, and in fact exacerbated it. My contacts tell me that many, many members of the black community came to despise Obama.

                    Truth be told, the vast majority of blacks had a better quality of life, and were better educated, in 1955 than they are now. Blacks were employed, ran black-owned businesses, enjoyed good schools, enjoyed a stronger family life and intact communities, and were not living in the midst drug and gang violence and drive-by shootings.

                    Further, the Democrat's stance on immigration is best understood as a desire to exploit slave labor.

                    Since it is the responsibility of government to promote the interests of its citizens, the fostering of illegal immigration is treasonous, in that it subverts the interests of citizens. It may even be said that there are those in our government who are supporting an invasion of our country, who actually desire that the US be invaded by foreigners.

                    Foreign mass migration into another sovereign nation's territory has always throughout history been understood as an act of war. Peculiarly, we have until recently had a government appears to be on the side of the invaders--a stance that has always throughout history been understood as treason.

    And how about this, how about not hiring Page, Flynn, and Manafort who are all believed to be agents working for other country's interests.  Maybe that would be ample reason not to put them on your campaign team.  Because if you don't see a national security issue there, then that might be your first problem.

AND  thus the  written laws of immigration to date to legally limit immigration from anywhere or everywhere .


    The law of natural Balance ; Of immigration policies and quotas written into law that allow for the fair and balanced immigration by law and legal process from all sources in proportionate or  prorated by source nation size  .   In other words ; why should Hispanics because of illegal immigration next door to us have a numerical and proportionate  advantage over legal sources from any and all other countries?

        wow:
