Trading Ukraine for 19% of Rosneft?

WORTH IT

"I am a consistent critic of the Deep State that's why I think I'm targeted."

Another one of these f*ckers. This shiat should be a contempt charge or something. It's like the new "temporary insanity."

What a whiner.  He got caught and now he needs to man up.

Can we bring waterboarding back for these guys, "questioning?"

I genuinely don't know why Trump's team hasn't tried to emphasize the fact that the NY Times article in January they keep citing mentions that the investigation was into Paul Manafort and that while Manafort was officially fired from the team in August he continued to live in Trump Tower throughout the campaign (and in fact still lives there) so a wiretap of Manafort's home would be a wiretap of Trump Tower though not a wiretap of Trump himself or his campaign headquarters located within the same building. Sure it would only be technically correct, but we all know that is the best kind of correct.

Either they consider it an appropriate leap of conclusions or he doesn't want to call attention to his Manafort connection (which seems doubtful considering that he had meetings with Manafort after the election to help him pick out his cabinet.)

I think they're betting on "incidental collection" instead.

He might as welll say "I'm a consistent critic of a competent and stable government, and that's why I'm targeted."

The Deep State is just functional government. Nothing more, and nothing less. And the only folks who hate a functional government are either criminals or anarchists who just hate the thought of ANYONE telling them what to do.

So, which are you, folks? Criminal or crackpot? Neither is especially an attractive alternative, though criminals at least have a brand of logic to their actions...

Because they know that despite being fired, Manafort and Donny have been talking almost daily on easily traced phones

This is complete bullshiat.  I was at the Deep State meeting last night.  All we talked about was expanding the child prostitution ring.

sorry to threadJack but any truth to the rumors of Gorka wearing a uniform celebrating a Hungarian Nazi. Saw the pic this morning.

bamnuke: sorry to threadJack but any truth to the rumors of Gorka wearing a uniform celebrating a Hungarian Nazi. Saw the pic this morning.


Thats old news.  He was wearing a nazi medal at the inauguration.  His old facebook picture was him in the hungarian nazi dress uniform wearing the vitazi rend medal.

Its not a rumor.  The rumor is that people suddenly care.  We will see if that's the case or if Americans tolerate literal nazis advising the president.

i know it's probably wishful thinking, but i like that this is getting at least a little attention.

Keep chasing that Russian angle. While you're party is treading water Trump will be sailing to reelection.
 
2017-03-19 11:17:40 AM  
Anent the question of who might have been the target (Manafort et al), that's beside the point. Trump accused Obama personally. And he's repeated that. You don't get a true statement until all the parts tot up. Partial truths don't count. It isn't a test where you get a % grade

Since you imply that "chasing that Russian angle" is the only thing Trump opponents are doing, your statement appears to be either stupid or misleading.

The Russian angle is stupid and has zero evidence of anything wrong or illegal. But keep chasing it, I want you to keep chasing it, makes you guys look like a bunch of kooks. 2018 is going to be even better for the GOP. And you guys handed Trump re-election in 2020, especially if you run any of your old hacks, or re-run Hillary, lol, please do.

dantheman195: 2018 is going to be even better for the GOP


Yes, the party in power always picks up seats during the midterms.  Also, the earth is flat, the sun is cold, and water is not wet under any circumstances.

/where do they find these people

Enough of your trump-supporting hogwash. Red Kentucky is full of nincompoops who keep biatching about weather inconsistencies whilst wondering where their social security is disappearing to. This level of ignorance toward facts and scientific reality isn't unprecedented; it's the standard MO for Republicans. So no, we won't stop yelling about Russia. You ignorant farks didn't quit yelling about Obummer this and Benghazi that, and that shiat was REAL nothing.

Get back to church to spout your bull's excrement and maybe my friends at Starbucks won't spit in your after-Jesus latte.

I love the term "libtard"....it assumes some kind of baseline competence on the part of the "conservative"...a baseline for which there is no evidence.

How many people lie and commit perjury over nothing?  So you're either nuts or blowing smoke.

Yeah, the Republicans who deign to show up to the town-hall meetings in their districts are comforted to realize that the voters are just saying "BOO-urns."

Is that why Schiff said, "I would characterize it this way at the outset of the investigation: There is circumstantial evidence of collusion. There is direct evidence, I think, of deception and that's where we begin the investigation."

And Trump's trump card this week is a story by Andrew Napolitano who sourced his false allegation that former President Barack Obama asked British intelligence to spy on President Donald Trump to a report on Russia Today, the state-owned pro-Putin cable channel.  That's some fine journalism from the conservative propaganda mills.

"Nothing to see here", as Manafort counts his 12.7 million dollar tax free bribe for helping to subvert a legitimate government in direct opposition of US policy.  He doesn't even deny most of the damning facts about his work in Ukraine, but rather the amount he was paid.

Nothing wrong, but already two resignations and one recusal.
