Meh. I'm pretty sure Putin already knew he could go ahead with whatever he wanted with Donnie, Mitch, Blanche, and Fox News running interference for him.

there were going to be more foreign plots regardless.
Even if trump got literally drawn and quartered it's no real skin of their backs, they got what they wanted.
You'd pretty much need to start a war over this stuff for there to be any kind of deterrent.

The hilarious thing about Republicans is that they are so short sighted they don't care what will happen when the other side follows their lead.

Lmao come the fark on. We'd be in a world of shiat even if Trump spent last night in jail. But keep pretending the problem is limited to Trump, goes away when he does, and some magical savior is going to do it for you

Citizens United already did that job. That conservatives still won't acknowledge that Mueller put more indictments on Russian persons and companies than US ones show they are quite happy with that court decision.

Well of course he did. It won't be an issue as long as its the republicans are the ones winning. The GOP has tried to circumvent the election process for decades now. Now they have a willing foreign partner to help them do just that and all they have to do is well nothing. To stop any new safeguards from going up, or build in a backdoor that get leaked to the Russians that day.

All the while they can continue to subjugate the majority with their minority of supporters. The 2020 election will be the full and outright theft of the election at all levels to such a degree that no one will be able to view them as free and fair... and it won't matter a damn.

They stacked the courts at the federal level with all the judgeships they refused to allow a democratic president to fill. When they steal the next election outright they will pack the USSC to bursting with such vile creatures as will make Kavanaugh look like a saint. It will be the death of the Republic, and the idiots that support it will cheer as it falls.

I think the greenlight came less for when it was pointed out they were meddling and more for when this administration decided that they shouldn't be penalized for it and in fact rewarded for their efforts.

Once again, the Democrats got suckered by a Republican claiming to be doing the right thing.  Once again, when justice, morals and values are on the line the Republicans supported one of their own and let the rich guy get out of jail free: "fark the country, there's money on the line!"

I am sure you would be this sanguine if it was a democrat they had helped. Just because your team 'won'  doesn't mean it will always be in your favor.

The big news in Russian media atm is Trump allegedly signing a document that recognizes the Golan heights annexation by Israel.

Which on first reading means that the US is basically okaying the Crimea annexation from Ukraine.

Which is a bit bigger than Barr and Mueller.

American Democracy was already dead. Now, they're just playing with the corpse.

Trump did nothing wrong? So Democrats can do the same shiat he did 2016 as part of the 2020 campaign? I'm certain China wants tariff happy Trump gone in a big way and has waaay more hackers than Putin ready to make that happen.

/Game on

I still can not fathom why anyone here or anywhere else had any hope that the Mueller report was going to save us.  Its seems desperate or delusional at least.

Xi and Putin are two halves of the same coin. They've been working together since 2013

The way to bet was always that the American people would be the ones who ultimately judged Donald John Trump, found him wanting and cast him out of public life if not into prison---where, honestly, I didn't think it wise to consider sending him at all if we wanted him to go quietly.

There is still a non-negligible chance that Trump will leave office early (about 13.6 percent---at this point mostly his chance of dying in office), and his chances of re-election are only 36.1 percent (up only three percentage points from a week ago).

Keep the faith, Farkettes and Farkers. We're on the home stretch. November 2020 will be here before you know it.

And what would you have done differently if you were running the investigation?  Not put 12 witches in jail?  Not set up 20 investigations that are currently ongoing?

I agree.  You wouldn't have done any of those things.  Because, like your girl Ivanka, you're a feckless c.

no, Russian media has been all giddy with this since Trump announced. The problem, however, is the Golan Heights were captured during a war. That's not the same as sending your troops to go vacation in crimea and oops, it's ours now, comrade!

Perhaps a threadjack, but I wantwd to share this without it getting buried. Anyways, here is a brief and casual recap of the last couple of years:

- We now know for certain that Russia meddled in the election, in favour of Trump
- Trump "likely" fired James Comey for investigating this
- Trump's son and son in law definitely met with the Russians, "supposedly" for different matters though
- Trump met with Russian intelligence in the White House
- After a closed door meeting with Putin, he tells the world we should trust Putin over US intelligence
- He tweeted "witch hunt" and "no Russian collusion" countless times, like a child trying to deflect responsibility
- Bonus: after tweeting 50 times like a lunatic, he goes completely quiet once the report was handed in

Now I am not a conspiracy nut, so perhaps the final report will look like Barr's summary. Perhaps it is possible that Trump fired Comey for reasons unrelated to the investigation, that Trump Jr. really met the Russians to talk about adoption, and he threw such a fit about witch hunts because he really was innocent and no longer holds the mental capacity to deal with these things like a responsible adult.

But while possible, this whole thing seems rotten to the core. It is like it is telling us that 1+1=3 and that all this black smoke is not coming from a fire. These conclusions, while possible, are HIGHLY unlikely.

Making a mountain out of a molehill here.

Sure, Russia may have meddled with the 2016 election but the Mueller report states that Trump was not complicit with their efforts.  Also, it did not alter what would have been the outcome.  304 to 227 electoral votes is not a small margin.

America will be great again as its citizens are able to be more confident that their hard work will yield expected rewards that are not snatched away to give to the lowlifes that pop out babies to get more welfare.

Russia is nothing to worry about.  Trump 2020!!
