What really enrages is me is Lieutenant General Michael Flynn who went from head of the Defence Intelligence  Agency to a unregistered Agent of two foreign governments.  Despite the fact as a retired Army O-9 he is required to get permission from the Defence Department to accept any money from a foreign source.  Then the Trumpet section attacks Hillary instead of being outraged by the fact a senior military Intelligence officer signs on as a agent of a foreign power.  Since this crap occurred under the current Presidunce to the Trumpets this is no problem.  The hipocracy of the Trumpets is unbelievable.  Trump ran on repeal and replace Obama care with a better plan that would be cheaper more coverage and protect the people with serious medical issues and protect preexisting conditions.  While not yet scored by the CBO the plan throws 24 million off medical coverage, guts Medicaid  and Medicare.  Trump said anything that would get him elected.  The man lies like a rug.  While he is firing Comey to stop the investigation of his Campaign personnel he is meeting wit the Russian Foreign Ministor and the Russian Ambasador , the Ambasador who is considered by the FBI and the CIA as the head  Russian Intelligence in the US.  Trump doesn't allow American photographers in to take photos of this meeting but allows the Russians to take the photos that were shown every where as the Comey firing story broke.  The best part is the Presidunce was shocke the Russians released the photos.  Face it we have a dishonest moron as our leader.  The Trumpets refuse to see or admit the Emperor has no brain or ethics.

Well said. 

I found it quite comical to hear the stories of Spicer hiding in or "among" the bushes trying to get away from the reporters so he didn't have spout more falsehoods which Mr. Trump would immediately make sound false as he spouted more incorrect information.

I rarely come out here, but saw this from Trump today:

'James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!'

Why would he say that if he has nothing to hide?

I think I can tell you why Deanne.

In a recent Quinnipiac University Poll where Trump's approval rating was found to be 36% they also asked the question: What comes to mind when you think of Donald Trump. The top 3 answers were idiot, incompetent and liar.

Actually Spicer was beating the bushes to find the truth.  Unfortunately he found out he is working for a idiot.

Dear me, am I right in suspecting now that FBI director Mr. James Comey was investigating a little too thoroughly about "things" ?

It will be interesting to hear the recordings and read the memos....  Also sad to see for the second year in a row when the Turks met with our US president Turkish suites assumed to be Turkish security forces beat up Turkish protesters here in DC (they did the same when meeting with Obama)...

Since you guys don't watch FOX News or Listen to talk radio, I will enlighten you.

Seth Rich who was a DNC staffer, was found dead in his apartment about a year ago and it was considered a suicide or robbery yet his wallet was still there.  Well, his family said "no way".  So they hired a PI and he found that Seth was communicating with Wikileaks.  His computer has disappeared so .... not sure yet if it can be traced.  This PI got a threatening phone call from a guy from the DNC wanting to know why he was snooping around. 

Looks like Seth Rich was the leak about Hillary to Wikileaks.  So, another dead body in the Clinton line.  I sure hope this is vetted and comes out.

I hope it is vetted and comes out, too.  But I don't know what this has to do with Trump's current profound difficulties.

I know!  Hilary's time is past for most liberals but for some reason she is the conservative answer whenever Trump's team exposes yet another treasonous activity.

Instead of Commander in Chief, the Presidunce has turned into the Whiner in Chief.  It's almost like Trump didn't really go to a American High School.  He is surprised when ever his absolute power has limits.

The same crowd that hates bullying and supports all the people who "think" differently are taunting Trump and kicking him in the back and when on the ground will kick him and hit him until death.  Yet, welcome Chelsea (Bradly) Manning out of prison (thank you Obummer).  Maybe Chelsea Manning would make a better president.  It would not surprise me a bit if she/he were elected. 

OMG Trump had two scoops of ice cream!  That is worth impeachment!!  What the HELL is wrong with you people??  Hillary did 10 times worse than what Trump is "accused" of.  You guys are such Hippocrates.  Hillary? that is OLD news ... and in the same breath you bring up Watergate?  You guys are so grasping for the last straws you have.  I hope NO dems get elected back into office.  Nancy Polsi can sell flowers on the corner.

When Trump is cleared of this you will be on to him for eating a salad for lunch with a little cheese on the side.

Trump could make this go away quickly by cooperating. He has done the opposite. No tax returns. Flynn Scandal. Nunes Scandal. Comey Scandal. Sessions Recusal.  He behaves totally like someone trying to obstruct an investigation. He is caught red handed flip flopping and lying about these issues. What will be funny is when he is forced to deliver the tapes he has of his and Comey's conversations or admit it was a lie that they even exist.  Which one do you think it will be. And if there really is tape, what do they really say. Trump has shot his credibility by lying so much. He blames his staff when he is the idiot out there making stuff up on the spur of the moment that contradicts what his people are saying. This even happened with Pence in regards to the Comey firing.

Said by someone who admits to getting news (seemingly exclusively) from Fox. Yet others who peruse a variety of news outlets and tend to vet those sources are said not to know what is going on?

We all tend to build bubbles that reinforce our world views, but studies have shown that those on the far right are more insulated in those bubbles, while those on the left tend to try to see beyond them.

If the president is so clean, then he should share his tax returns and welcome an independent investigation into the Russian connection. He shouldn't need to hide behind complaints about Hillary. A thorough investigation would unearth connections concerning her, if there are any, too.

I want to get to the truth. Plain and simple.

What do you think about the foreign connection?  Do you find it appropriate that members of his cabinet were illegally paid by foreign powers well advising him? 

(I think its fairly well established that Michael Flynn was paid to represent Turkey's interests during the campaign, did not register as a foreign agent and later became an cabinet official...)

If Flynn was not a retired general officer O-9 then all he would be required is to register as a foreign agent.  But there is a federal criminal statute requiring O-7's and above to get permission from the DOD before taking any money. Do you really want the retired head of the Defence Intelligence Agency working for a openly hostile foreign power.
