Yes.

Who better to tell us that if other people don't want you to find something, you should probably not look for it?

One and the same.
 
2017-08-04 01:04:03 PM  
Does he give any examples? Because at the moment its sure seems like it's all linked to Russia.

Perhaps the campaign shouldn't have let Russia be so involved?

I can't think of anyone connected to Trump that hasn't also been linked to the Russians.

You'd think they would know someone, anyone, that was connected to Russia.

Well, Ken, the SC's mandate DOES actually cover "anything that may come from the investigation", so any thread that gets pulled and unravels say... an underaged sex trafficking ring is fair game.

Along with the money laundering.
And RICO.
And FARA.
And FCPA.

Rosenstein knew exactly what he was doing when he wrote that memo.

Trump, and the rest of the lackeys and hangers-on, are farked.

Hey,  he has no objections do what you get up to in your private life. As long as there weren't any consensual sexual acts between adults, one of whom happened to have a (D) after his name.

I don't know about that. He probably would not have won without Russia. Whatever happens, he still got to be the president. He still gets to be on the placemats. Even if it ruins him, he'll be remembered forever in American history. I don't think any amount of money or freedom can beat that.

Not true. Starr's investigation pre-dated the beej by several years. Starr's original investigation was the non-issue of Whitewater. Clinton's affair with Lewinsky occurred during the investigation.

Bill Clinton got BJs during the 70s when he was involved with Whitewater Development. He also got BJs in the White House. Boom. They're connected.

In a just world, the reporter would have gotten up and immediately started kicking Starr in the balls.

I can't decide if this is the result of a stunning lack of self awareness or just garden variety hypocrisy.

I'm going to call it a little of column A and a little of column B

That is the direct parameter of the special counsel. Ken Starr intimately knows this. So what is his motive for saying otherwise? Who is paying him to say it?
 
2017-08-04 01:56:05 PM  
Says the man who single-handedly gave Congress all the reasons it needed to not renew the authorizing legislation which created the Independent Counsel by his massive over-reach during the Clinton investigation.  Mueller would be a helluvalot more independent and more powerful and have more free rein to play with in this investigation if Starr hadn't basically killed the legitimacy of the Independent Counsel.

Uh... so the whole thing cost roughly 40 million dollars...and lasted about 4 years...that's roughly 10 million a year.

So even if that part of the investigation was only 6 months, that'd be 5 million.

5 million = millions

So I'm not sure what your point was :)

Anyone who is attached to the threads, or wants any hope of their congressional majorities to survive 2018.

They know its bad, that it looks bad, and that it is only going to get far, far worse.

Well if he is a conservative that makes him a hero not hurting fine young men by letting those slurs get what is coming to them.
 
2017-08-04 02:09:08 PM  
You know, I can understand how someone can be a Conservative based on belief in limited government, or thinking the free market can solve everything, or just not wanting to pay for taxes ever... but how do you just devote yourself to utter bullshiat? Do you have to have your sense of self-perception surgically removed?

Seriously, I'm asking.
 
2017-08-04 02:10:09 PM  
Upon leaving the studio, Mr. Starr immediately embarked upon what he described as a "one week fishing expedition"

Honesty, intergrity or even intellectual consistency are simply not "Core Republican values"

The guy who led the impeachment of a President because of a BJ he got from an Intern also deliberately covered up more than 40  rapes commited by atheletes at the "religious" college he ran.


Or Today we have Fox New's Legal expert" Greg Jarret pulling a full 180 from something he said LITERALLY the day before:
Former defense attorney and Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett called grand juries an "undemocratic farce" on Thursday, just one day after writing an op-ed asking why a grand jury had not been impaneled for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's mishandling of classified information.
Jarrett weighed in on special counsel Robert Mueller's decision to impanel a grand jury in the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election.
"There's only one other nation in the world other than the U.S. that employs a grand jury - it's Liberia," Jarrett, a former Court TV host, said Thursday on "Hannity."
"And there's a reason why, because everybody now realizes that grand juries are an undemocratic farce."
"The defense is never there to cross-examine witnesses and to challenge the evidence. Prosecutors spoon-feed only incriminating evidence and nothing exculpatory. It is as undemocratic as you can get, it is the antithesis of justice," he continued.

Yeah, there wasn't anything to refute except your "Not True" statement. Really, that's the only thing to refute so I thought I'd nudge your ribs about it because, technically everything was true.

Even put smiley face there.

Not sure if serious.
