Sometimes people disagree with the findings of a federal investigation.

Trump has tweeted that the Mueller investigation "totally cleared" him of all wrongdoing, despite the report clearly stating that it was not doing that.  

I don’t think you even believe that nonsense.

The WaPo gave them 4 pinnochios.

I ordered a Trump windup toy for my son.  It stomps around and sparks fly out of its mouth.  I think there should be one that waddles around sweating before striking the cheesy thumbs-up grinning pose at random times.

I believe that there are many people, perhaps including them that still believe Michael Brown was murdered and justice wasn't served.  Which is why there was violence and attention given to this particular case.  However, them ignoring the Justice Department findings and them running for President is worthy of 4 pinnochios.  Presidential candidates shouldn't be doing this.

I think that Trump eliminated those type of standards for presidential candidates.  If he can insist that there are fine people among the alt right then they can hold the torch for the killing of an unarmed man in the street. Their empathy for the victim and anger with the lack of justice that accompanies that level of police violence gets my vote if they are Trump's opponent. 

Besides, our current president has told us repeatedly that the DOJ is not to be trusted. This may be one of the instances where he unintentionally told the truth.

It's interesting their asking us to trust the DOJ and Washington post when it's reporting things that are convenient to them.

Yes.

I said that about Mueller.

Trump disparaged the man, constantly.

But then, he embraced Mueller, when Trump said Mueller "exonerated" him.

Like you, most of us see through the buffoon.

Only the rabid followers still think there is something there.

Last June a candidate in Virginia Tweeted, "The Democratic Party is now supporting the murder of innocent babies."

I believe abortion kills a baby. I could only support abortion to save the life of the mother.

BUT this woman is incorrect regarding any current law.

I personally know more than one woman who had an abortion due to ectopic pregnancy that would have cause the death of both her and her baby if allowed to continue.

Only 4 doctors are performing this procedure in the United States. The reasons why they have this may be because of a malformation, birth defect, or anomaly that the child won’t survive long past birth and may suffer from pain, seizures, or unknown birth defects.

No, I don't agree with Warren and Harris's characterization, given what we know about the incident and the findings of the investigation, referring to it as "murder" is irresponsible and reckless, and given their positions and the expectations that should come with it, their statements were shameful.

As much as I find their opinions on what occurred indefensible, it would have been even worse had they lied about what the investigation found, if they had said the investigation concluded that he was murdered, that would make the effectively ineligible for a position that requires public trust, yet somehow the same factions that find Warren and Harris's comments so troubling take little issue with Trump's.

Jay Inslee, Washington State governor has withdrawn from the presidential race. I never thought he had a chance, but I am glad he brought forth the issue of climate change.

Many voices should insure a broad discussion. I find the media driven "debate" format unsatisfying.

As do I.

But I hear that Trump may have some primary challengers. I wonder if he would even agree to a debate.

A debate requires that the participants know something about the topic.  Trump remains uniquely ignorant of history and current events while simultaneously believing himself to be a genius.
