Mikey1969: HawgWild: Yeah, that's not what she said.

I was wondering that. Can't do much besides grab news bites from here while at work. What did she say? Or is it actually in that link? I usually don't click on the links posted by people who mislead in their description of the story, so I wasn't gonna click on that linked story.


Literally that they were not spying on Trump's campaign, but going after Russian interference.  And kept running into the Trump campaign.

Sounds like even members of the Trump campaign had no idea how much other members of the Trump campaign were tied up with Russia.

I Ate Shergar: "ObamaBiden"? Is he trying to suggest they are some sort of conjoined entity?


Yes.
It's like DoctorDonna.

Once again Trump demonstrates his complete ignorance of the Constitution.  Treason is defined in the Constitution and the accusation does not fit the definition therein.

Sounds like he just confessed he's ordered the intelligence community to spy on Biden)

Well, there is this dance, or these earrings, but you end up with Obiden or Biama, so... really... ah...

The Man in a White Castle is the title of my upcoming Netflix show about Trump's racism, fascism, and love of fast food.

Even if what he's saying is true (and it's not), how could it be treason if they were spying on him (which they weren't) before the election?
 
2020-08-05 4:28:51 PM  

Myrdinn: Kinda wondering if he actually listened to the testimony.

For that matter, if any Republican (including the ones at the hearing) did.


Of course not. That would imply that they were seeking the truth and not running a political hatchet job.

Bob Falfa: He knows he's going to lose, so he'll try to have Biden arrested.


Or maybe he'll just kick off an illegitimate FBI investigation into Biden on his way out of office. The Dems will really have to ties themselves in knots explaining why that's bad.

They got their headline (Yates decries FBI and DOJ handling of Page investigation) who cares that she also pointed out that there is no evidence of political bias after the DOJ IG tore the place apart looking for it and that a lot of this was Comey calling audibles just like he did in the Clinton investigation?

The political trades are certainly clinging to this angle.

zbtop: Treason is giving aid and comfort to an enemy of the United States, what enemy were Obama and Biden giving aid and comfort to?

Unless we're just going to classify anyone refusing to tongue punch mango mussolini's dirt star as "the enemy"...


Pretty much. This is a person that thinks John Lewis's legacy in the history books will be "skipped Donnie Two Scoops's inauguration."

Why the fark, if ObamaBiden was going to spy illegally on the Trump campaign, did they even bother to get FISA warrants in the first place?  Sounds like a real Rube Goldberg way to go about it.  If you're going to commit "treason", why do it by falsifying a very small proportion of the supporting documents for your warrants?  Why not just place a camera in Trump's microwave and be done with it?  Why even try to frame him in a crime at all?  And why, if you really wanted to use this stuff to ensure victory in the election would you NOT RELEASE ANYTHING until far after the election?

This is a pants on head stupid theory. Why the fark are we still taking about it?

Given that Tiny Dick Daughterfarker is probably the most corrupt president in US history, it will be easy to cancel a farce of an investigation and explain why.

Nah. Legitimate or not, Biden can just shut it down when he becomes president, then install a puppet AG to prosecute Trump for treason.

After all, trump set the precedent: the rule of law is now whatever the president says it is.

Not really, because it's plainly an abuse of power.

Oh, I get it, you thought you were comparing things that are similar, not diametrically opposed.  Well that was stupid.

It doesn't need to make sense. He makes a vague, unsubstantiated statement and his fanbois contort facts and make shiat up until they arrive at a narrative that they think works.

Catlenfell: There's no way that having 40% of the population believing that the guy who wins in November is a traitor can bode well. This harkens back to the election of 1860.


On the one hand about 50% of the population thinks the guy that won in November 2016 is a traitor.

On the other hand the 40% that will believe Biden is a traitor tend to be more heavily armed than the 50ish% that believe trump is a traitor and a lot less mentally stable, generally speaking, so, yeah, your point stands.

UNDER OATH!

Let's see you go under oath and try to refute that Donnie!

Difficulty: "under oath" means nothing to the honorless filth for whom an oath means nothing.


in a sane world, lying under oath puts you on the record. then you get prosecuted because investigators take notes. if politicians in the Senate se no evil, it doesn't matter....maybe for good unless you defeat this man.

It wouldn't matter what an oath means to someone saying lies. It matters what it means to others, and at the moment it appears the meaning of oaths is "not much," however, records of such lies must exist. If you save your country you can go back and prosecute.
 
2020-08-05 4:54:13 PM  
Let's see if I am following this correctly...

The Republicans believe that Hillary Clinton conspired with the Russians to *lose* the election, but make it look like it was Trump who conspired with the Russians, all so that Trump could be elected and then immediately impeached for colluding with the Russians in the election?

And Comey was in Hillary's back pocket, trying to keep Trump from winning, despite the fact that he said nothing at all about the Trump investigation, and instead brought up the email investigation on Hillary at the last minute and cost her the election?

This is truly 12th dimension Tiddly Winks

You're not wrong but do you think an oath would mean shiat to Donald? I mean neither his oath to his wives, nor his oath of office, have meant a damn thing to him.

He's swear in to Congress and testify that he was 7 and a half feet of lean muscle, a grim bloody fable leaving women ruined for other men for life. He can bench press 700 pounds on his rest days, and has more money than China. Like, the country of China, in sum. He's actually caught China Virus 53 times and wrestled it into submission every time. He doesn't try to avoid catching it because every time he catches it he advances the scientific study of the disease, nay of life itself, by decades. The owner of Harvard once called him and said "Sir we want to name the school after you. I also spoke to the president of The Calendar and we are going to restart the year numbering. What we call 2016 will now be year 1 in the Trump Era. All hail!"

And that's the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth!

He's been bleating this distracto-bullshiat chum for his league of dipshiat followers for 4 years now.  If he had even a single leg to stand on, someone would have been on trial for this so-called 'treason' already.

But he doesn't, so there hasn't been.  And he knows it.

You know, most incumbent Presidents run upon their accomplishments when seeking re-election.  Trump does not.  I wonder why.
