    Have any sources that aren't right-wing-crackpot websites??
    Not to defend the poster in question as I disagree with nearly every rhing she posted, but how is this any different from the wild, bizarre claims that have been posted by some on the left, in many threads on this board?

    One of the regular contributors here posted in one the political threads that she expected the individual in question to source his statements, and that she intended to fact check them as well. I think that this should guide all who post other than their opinion in these discussions. This is why I rarely participate in these discussions, as i am not going to take the time find sources that would be acceptable.

    ...but your kind haven't got the attention span or curiousity to seek out research unless it's presented in video or churlishly a la' Alex Jones...

    You got ran over by the Trump Train. America was on board. Only the liberals on the West Coast and some upper East Coast went for Hillary

    Now sit back and enjoy the ride
    "America" didn't get on board. Trump was elected by a minority of the voters, some (many?) of whom fell for the Russian disinformation, and the vagaries of the Electoral College, which dramatically favors the rural, sparsely populated states. And, thanks to the consistently poor US voter turnout, only a small minority of the adult population of the US voted for Trump. That's hardly "America" getting "on board" the "Trump Train." "Only" nearly 3 million more people voted for Hillary than voted for your guy, but, thanks to the undemocratic and unevenly weighted Electoral College, we got stuck with the Short-Fingered Vulgarian. We might not be stuck with him for too long, though ...

    The kind that doesn't seek out information from multiple sources and parsing the information to glean the salient facts. If the shoe fits. And stop being so churlish. We all have a point of view including you, especially you! So few of "your kind" post sensible information that you are the most important poster here. We need to be educated re how you arrive at your beliefs and values. I support all the main Republican values of small efficient Govt, strong military and self suffiency if applicable. Unfortunately your bizarre outlook of non representation of women and minorities and other equally awkward propositions leaves me nauseous.

    "Your kind" would be the first to protest the infringement of your rights, yet you selfishly and hypocritically impugn the rights of almost all others except for white men. If you are a woman you should be apalled by a man boasting about grabbing your privates. However, I would even forgive him that if he possessed the barest modicum of ability to be a good leader. So far nothing has been accomplished except to embroil us into his chicanery with no end in sight. You absolutely do not comprehend that he represents us to the world at large which I doubt you are familiar with to your own detriment I might add. The shame he has brought upon us when China and Russia can point their fingers. I envy people like you who possess the delusional thinking of the ignorant. This isn't just smoke, there's a raging inferno that's threatening our current lives re healthcare, ecology, education, immigration and to me personally, my livelihood.

    So contribute by educating us in case we actually are as blinded as you.

    FBI's role is to investigate and send findings to Grand Jury or DOJ's Office for prosecution. This guy grandstanded and was a Obama plant that forgot there was a new Sheriff in town with cojones. Gonna be a new FBI director. Hillary is practicing "Pleading The Fifth"
    You must think that we are gullible and believe that it is coincidence that you joined just today and are here spreading shade about Clinton rather than discussing the extremely controversial events of this week which suggest that we are headed down a path of tyranny.

    Donald Trump has just thumbed his nose at our laws and Constitution while Political leadership of the GOP either hides (P.Ryan) or facilitates the coup (McConnell).

    Meanwhile, sites like this will now be flooded with absurdity and ugliness purchased and unleashed to rally the faithful social conservative voting base that is a responsive target to this sort of cyber disruption.

    It will be fun to revisit the games of the campaign in this forum.

    Well said, TooMuch. Now Jennifer and Chare, do you see what relevant research contributes. TooMuch obviously reads about the subject matter and instead of brief comments, supplements her statements by espousing re Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell. She understands the dangerousness of cyber corruption relevant to this immediate forum. So instead of the silly clichéd minimalist comments, tell us how he will drain the swamp. Saying something is quite different from actually doing it. Why were you so easily convinced that his statements were achievable knowing the checks and balances in place and did you know the intricacies of politics and how it is conducted? You do realize that not a single Democrat wants lobbyists corrupting our political process or our tax dollars wasted? You realize we want safety and efficient legal immigration but only when the motives are objective and humane. The swamp implies corruption and no Democrat wants such, especially from someone who appears to be immeasurably self serving and a massive hypocrite. How can you possibly trust Ryan or Cruz who said such callous things about the president pre election and now brown noses like it's a fecal party. Trust me it's a s**t storm alright.

    They must. It shouldn't come as a surprise though. After all they admire a man who seems to assume that we're all as dumb as a box of rocks. Perhaps that's all his own intellectual capacity permits, I don't know.

    I hadn't read the actual letter to Director Comey when I made my first post in this thread. I just saw it and my first reaction was incredulity. Then I laughed. Hard. Talk about wearing your insecurities on your sleeve. The sentence that doesn't really belong in that letter is like a flashing neon sign, drawing our attention to exactly what it is that this President worries about. Transparent like window glass.


    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/09/u...-fbi.html?_r=0

    “While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the bureau,” Mr. Trump said in a letter to Mr. Comey dated Tuesday. White House officials refused to say anything more about the three occasions Mr. Trump cited.


    I so don't see that ever having happened. It's weird. The Director of the FBI picking up the phone (or whatever) and calling in the midst of an ongoing counter-intelligence investigation to comfort the Prez that no, no, we're not looking into you. On three separate occasions, no less. Three times? Even if the Director would have shared details of the ONGOING investigation possibly involving the WH with the WH boss (I don't regard this as a likely scenario), why three times? Did Donald need regular assurances? Wouldn't it be wildly inappropriate and highly irregular if the President and the Director talked about this investigation on a regular basis? This just sounds off. But what do I know... So much strangeness has been happening lately.

    Even if this turns out to be true, that "thank you" from the President to the man he was firing simply doesn't belong in that particular letter.

    Endless smoke and mirrors. Conway's microwave ovens, Nunes' Keystone Cops shenanigans and Sean Spicers weird unsubstantiated comments about the British intelligence services/GCHQ being involved in the wire tapping. All this noise trying to draw the attention away from the possible Russia connection.

    To way I interpret it, the inclusion of that sentence in the letter to Director Comey only serves one purpose. To try to make us believe that there's nothing to this Russia thing.

    The harder they try, the more suspicious I become.

    I am way past suspicious, I am certain and I am never certain without bags of evidence. However, his sons have admitted that their investment monies originates in Russia since no American banks would risk lending them money. Bankruptcies etc. Deutsche Bank loaned money as well and the Iraqi Republican Guard for the Azerbaijan, Baku tower.

    Politicians are a self serving lot and they are elected. The moment Trump's approval hits the low point where their constituents will not elect them, they will jump ship and probably try impeachment. I think resignation before that is probable but the damage would have been done. Civil suits and the alienation of the judicial powers will destroy his businesses. He's almost already toxic with only dodgy businessmen willing to involve themselves with him. I feel sorry actually because he is not well mentally and probably is incapable of restraint re his behaviors. However, how do you excuse the Republican politicians and evangelists who knowingly hitched their futures to his bandwagon. How can you respect a Chris Christie or Guliani and even worse a Pence, Ryan or Cruz. No integrity or shame whatsoever. Tell you what, speaks volumes about Jeb Bush and McCain's character. What a fiasco!!!

    Chris Christie may be our next FBI Director.

    You mean Food Baron Ingestor?
    Sorry, nothing against his weight but he is such a horrid man. How can he look his children in the eyes? Cruz as well after what was said about his wife.

    I would truly love to see Sheriff David Clarke get the position. I think he will be part of the administration one day, just not the head of the FBI.

    I really like him.
