I was reminded today on a radio show of how much Trump bragged about how small his campaign staff was. That he only had 70 or so people working for him whereas Hillary had 700. Remember, this used to be a reason that Republicans doubted his ability to secure the nomination - they thought he had no organized ground game (he didn't), not enough experienced campaign advisors (also true) and would falter before people like Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush who had the infrastructure in place for months or years. So now we are meant to believe that in this small campaign staff neither Manafort (who was the campaign manager) nor Papadopoulos (an "oil and gas advisor, excellent guy") are guys nobody in the Trump campaign ever really heard of or had anything to do with.

Okay.
The excellent guy George, who barely anyone knew and has already proven to be a liar.

Scary news about Manhattan. Damn. Glad they caught the guy, at least.

There's a ton of kids and families who walk this stretch... I used to do it with my wife and son. There's a huge park on Pier 25 that we used to go to on weekends, just up from Stuyvesant HS.

Fucking horrible.

Assume Trump will want to ban brown people from driving trucks?

Yeah, they're talking on the news about how there's schools nearby that were on lockdown and such, and a bunch of kids were out and about this evening, with Halloween and all. Can't even begin to imagine how frightening this is for them. Guy's an asshole, plain and simple.

Stuyvesant HS and BMCC are right there on West Street.

The Halloween parade isn't really that close... It looks it on a map but Tribeca to the West Village is a different world in Manhattan. It is very close to the Ghostbusters fire house, which will obviously be very popular tonight. On the other side of BMCC is where most of the restaurants in Tribeca are located, Greenwich Street.

Whatever happened to Trump’s 30 day plan to destroy ISIS?

His Muslim ban wouldn’t have stopped this.

I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s serious talk of banning trucks (versus guns)

Based on both the obvious panic present in the Trump administration and right wing media over the Mueller investigation, and the manner in which they're dismissing it and casting doubt, I'm afraid we're gonna see Trump fire Mueller at some point when the investigation gets too close for comfort. And the Republican party and a good chunk of the American public is going to let him do it, too.

Here's the thing: if I was innocent and I was being investigated, I'd tell them to continue with their investigation because it won't turn up anything. Then when nothing comes up I can use that as ammunition against my critics.

But that's not what is happening here, which leads me to believe they are guilty.

I see that Trump is blaming the NYC attacks on Chuck Schumer. I thought it was way too soon and in poor taste to bring politics into a tragedy? Isn't that what the Republicans tell us EVERY single time there is a mass shooting? My God, the stench of hypocrisy on the right is enough to make a skunk flee.

So Roger Stone and Bannon want Trump to hire a special prosecutor to look into the UraniumOne deal, because Mueller was head of the FBI at the time, and therefore it would "obstruct" his current job.

Do these people know if you state your plans out loud, that your words can come back to bite you? How did Stone admitting that plan as a form of obstructing justice?

Sounds like this is the beginning of the end for Trump. Might still take a few months, but there's a whole lot more coming down the Mueller investigation pipeline

Uranipigazi - this is the biggest scandal in American history. There’s no walking away from this. Every living democrat is going to prison after the public hears about this.

The Democratic Party has just given the world’s supply of Uranium to Russian pedophiles who attack our embassy. And Trump has proof.

Tick tock

They'll still be investigating Hillary when she's dead and buried. It's a mental illness.

Apparently Sean Hannity actually called her "President Clinton" the other day.

I mean, you have to cut them some slack. It's fucking EXHAUSTING having to do so much distraction day in and day out over there.

This uranium thing pisses me off so much.

Uranium is a natural resource. It's used for far more than just bombs (and yes, even at that enrichment, its fuel ffs).

Russia has A LOT of access to uranium. They have A LOT of land.

A sale of enriched uranium is a transfer of resource. It'd be like if we sold them oil. They have oil and we have oil. They're already a nuclear nation. It's not like they're being supplied with something they are toying around with to learn how to produce fission irresponsibly.

If they wanted to, they could ramp up their own production. Just like they could ramp up oil production.

Yep, the sale of this was for nuclear power plants.

Don't forget that this is tied to Podesta, which also means that the Clinton Foundation is involved.

The mental gymnastics the Right has to go through to sleep at night is amazing. To them, Clinton is a brilliant mastermind who is just too powerful and gotten away with so much

Yet she couldn't beat Donald Trump in an election. Or Obama. She can't be all powerful, and LOSE.

Of course the narrative that will come next is that Hillary is secretly the President. DEEP STATE!!! Trump is doing his best to uproot this evil from the government.

Every time they bring up Hillary, I want to tell them the same thing they've been gleefully saying for the past year: "She lost. Get over it."

Dear god, I hope you're right. Trump cannot leave the White House fast enough at this point.
