    Apparently in France, Putin is known as Canadian french fries with cheese and gravy.

    I don't know if the president knew about all the illegal actions by his staff. If not it still is not good that so many in his campaign and administration committed crimes. Is it just a coincidence that so many had ties to Russia?
    Former Trump campaign adviser pleads guilty to lying to FBI about Russia contacts
    Papadopoulos said he had been told as early as April 2016 that Russia had 'thousands of emails' related to Hillary Clinton.

    The court records offer the clearest evidence yet that a Trump-connected individual knew Russia had obtained thousands of emails related to Clinton, months before the leaks began of exchanges hacked from Democrats' email accounts.

    Papadopoulos' agreement was also the first guilty plea to be made public in Mueller's long-running probe of Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.

    The documents became public on the same day an indictment was unsealed against Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and adviser Rick Gates for money laundering and other charges. But unlike the 12 counts against that duo, the single felony count against Papadopoulos directly relates to 2016 presidential campaign activity.

    Do you think that it's going to be uncomfortable for Sessions to explain how he was at a meeting where Papadopulous introduced himself as the man with connections to get them Russian support?

    Didn't Sessions that he didn't even know of any person contacting Russia?

    Considering the "Cold War' ended in 1991 I'm not sure how it's inaccurate to say in 2012 that it had ended. And while the Cold War ended we continued to have an adversarial relationship with Russia after the fall of the USSR, is that somehow up for debate now?

    Nah, no debate from me. It's the Democrats wavering views of Russia I don't understand. Romney was heavily mocked by them for what he said about Russia. The Clintons relationship with Russia doesn't seem to bother liberals.

    That's odd.
    It seems to me that the only people shouting fake news about anything related to Russia are conservative.

    Further, why would we care if Clinton was implicated in an investigation? She is a private citizen and is not the president which is exactly why focus on her at this time seems so silly and diversionary.

    Looking at Clinton for Russian collusion is sort of like a person telling you their chief complaint is anal leakage and you work them up for an ear ache. You might find a problem but treating it won't improve the symptoms or fix the problem. You must still address the anus to get to the problem.

    What is the "Clinton's relationship with Russia"?

    Oh boy.
    Are we going to talk about Fusion GPS or the dossier?
    I went over to Fox and Breitbart to get caught up on the "reporting". Let's do this.

    I heard a story on a conservative radio show that tied together HRC, Uranium 1,
    The dossier and collusion in one tidy little package. Soon DJT will be claiming that Manafort was on the DNC payroll.

    Trump's relationship with Russia is on record, especially with regards to business ventures. And Trump and Putin?!?!? There are videos on YouTube to be found with Trump being interviewed PRAISING Putin!! It would be almost a miracle for deliberate collusion NOT to exist between Trump's 2016 Presidential campaign and Putin's Russia. (Of course we are a country of laws where citizens are presumed innocent in our judicial system, which ultimately is a good thing - unlike Putin's Russia.)

    Again. . . the bottom line is this: Trump and his Administration is our country's worst enemy. Period. As for the Conservative Republican Party?!? Given the so-called "tax reform" that they're promoting as example, they're a dangerous entity too. (How can people NOT see that the political ideology and proposed laws championed by the Conservative Republican Party do little to actually support the "average" red-blooded citizenry of our country?!?!?)

    I am still think Trump IS working for the Russians. Just this week, he ripped apart the American justice system. Really? Does he prefer the justice system of Russia?

    Have you all heard the Randy Newman song about Putin? It is so funny! It surely must be a favorite of the Bum, who seems to worship Putin.

    "Putin's putting his pants on, one leg at a time."

    Oh, here we go! I guess the noose around the Bum's neck is getting a little tight for some conservatives. This is from today's Washington Post. Let's hope this is called out for the nonsense that it is.


    Three conservative House Republicans are expected to file a resolution Friday calling on special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to recuse himself from his probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, accusing him of conflicts of interest.
    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), who wrote the resolution, accuses Mueller of having a conflict of interest because he was serving as FBI chief when the Obama administration approved a deal allowing a Russian company to purchase a Canada-based mining group with uranium operations in the United States, according to a draft obtained by The Washington Post.
    President Trump has often brought up the Uranium One deal in 2010 as a way to accuse Hillary Clinton of potential corruption and foreign collusion, despite scant evidence she was directly involved in the decision to allow it to proceed. Nine government agencies make up the government committee that reviews such deals, along with five other observer agencies; the FBI is not one of them.
