Right. Saying a politician is in the pocket of a foreign adversary is bashing all Russian people. I thought we went over this already?

I thot it was done

Peef, Dave C, Irving Peef and Dave glad you have quieted down, and try to be more toned down while being serious about your POVs.

I once posted and was ignored about even being more nuanced politically.
Center left, Left, and THEN Far Left.
Battery about to run out (D train station free WIFI)

And guess what I like JK3 so nah, nah, nah. probably not on all issues

His grandfather RFK was one of the few Dems back then who could get love from people of color AND white working class. Another time for that He was an very compassionate man.

this is what's so sad, isn't it.



by any remotely objective standard, everybody should support an investigation into how the government of a foreign adversary tried to manipulate American democracy. and said foreign adversary, a petrol-state run by mobsters, has succeeded in placing their asset in the White House. and one party has decided it will do all it can to undermine the investigation and destroy institutions like the FBI and the DOJ in order to do so, all so it can continue to give tax breaks to billionaires. because the tribalism runs so deep, all Trump has to do is say "no collusion" and anyone who says otherwise is a Deep State collaborator. Paul Ryan wants to "cleanse" the FBI. it's all about loyalty -- similar to other despots, like Putin or Duterte or Erdogan -- and for Trump, this is just another lawsuit.



for the rest of us, it's a pending constitutional crisis.



oh, and the economy's good.

The GOP are scared out of their minds. Trump owns them. They know if he goes down, legally or for whatever reason, he splinters the party.

That was his whole goal with TrumpTV, he was going to take a lot of the GOP support with him after the election. This is a big reason why you had the GOP bashing him during the primaries, but then backed him immediately when he was going to win. They didn't want him going independent.

I don't think it's too far fetched to believe that a lot of the GOP knew about the Russian connections to the Trump campaign, or even to Trump's finances. So they too will be taken out if Mueller is allowed to finish his investigation.

We are going to find out what our democracy is made of this weekend. This memo could pave the way for Trump to fire everyone and the GOP will stand behind it, or it could backfire and show what a fuckwit Trump and his cronies are.

In Oval Office just now, Trump is asked by reporters:

Does it make you more likely to fire Rosenstein? Do you still have confidence in him?

"You figure that one out," Trump responded

The contents of the memo are pretty underwhelming. All this hype to basically go after the Steele Dossier again?

Surprised the words Benghazi, Clinton Email Server, and Seth Rich weren't thrown in

What are the contents of the memo?

They're underwhelming because you don't believe them, or the allegations are underwhelming even if true?

The memo pretty much says that the fisa warrant on Carter Page in October of last year shouldn't have been issued because they were based on the Steele Dossier (they weren't, at least not totally based on it) and Steele didn't like Trump.

That's it.

all this because the Russians enlisted THIS dipshit, and the Trump campaign was enlisting anyone with a pulse:



and defending THIS dipshit is how the GOP is going to try to discredit the Russia investigation.

If the FBI and DOJ didn’t have a bias against Trump before today, they probably do now.

Not sure pissing off the IC is the best course of action.

Mostly seeing "That's it???" type tweets.

Also saw a comment that it doesn't back up the GOP's fear-mongering, or the Dems' warnings of releasing sensitive information.

I'm sure most of Trump supporters will continue to go along with the narrative Trump and the GOP leaders are trying to push, regardless of what's exactly in the memo.

Me, all I need to know is that it's 4 pages put together out of a 200+ page document. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to know that's some serious cherry-picking.

McCain rebukes Republicans: Attacking FBI serves 'only Putin'
By ELANA SCHOR 02/02/2018 12:31 PM EST

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Friday delivered a subtle but stinging rebuke to House Republicans over their move to release a classified memo alleging misconduct at the FBI, urging President Donald Trump and other Republicans to stop "manufacturing partisan sideshows" that benefit Russia.

The statement from McCain, who is away from Washington undergoing treatment for brain cancer, came minutes after Trump signed off on the release of the memo crafted by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee. McCain directly connected his fellow Republicans' campaign to undercut the FBI with Russian President Vladimir Putin's meddling in the 2016 election.

"The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests — no party's, no president's, only Putin's," McCain said. The Arizonan, a longtime Russia hawk who helped shape a bipartisan package of sanctions against Moscow last year, added that "Special Counsel [Robert] Mueller's investigation must proceed unimpeded."
didn't U2 and Dre write a song called "Treason" once?
