Also very interesting that Trump supports an anonymous discredited and proven wrong Conspiracy Theory while an investigation by the Republican Senate proves that there was collusion between his 2016 Campaign Staff and Russians.

Sort of supports Donald Jr's testimony (under oath) about his attempts to collude, doesn't it?.

Yet Adam Schiff is on audiotape triying to collude with a Russian who he thought had nude photos of Trump. Later, it was found to be a Russian comedian playing a trick on stupid Schiff. But this is all nothing compared to the acts by Obama/Biden/FBI/DOJ to falsify FISA applications and cheat and lie to try to get Trump out of office. Wait for the Durham Report. Coming soon. No other political party in the history of America has lied, cheated and purposely taken things out of context as the Democrapic Party. It's disgusting to see how one party no longer condemns violence against innocent people and property.

@8:32 - read the Mueller Report - nowhere in the redacted version that has been released does it say there was no collusion, in fact Mueller sent Manafort to Prison for that very thing!

What the Report says is that the Mueller Commission deferred to the Attorney General the question of whether a "sitting President" could be indicted for criminal activities. Before the Trump-selected AG could reply he was fired, and Barr has taken no action one way or the other toward the question asked in the Report.

And when is the "Durham Report" going to be released now? So far there have been four "release dates" announced, with no action at all! And does the Epoch Times, or whatever Trump fanfiction you read give any names of all these people running scared, or is it just claiming they are hiding out in Area 51?

"Trump's fault" is a great excuse for the actions of militant mayors and dictatorial county health departments, and Napoleonic governors shutting things down.

I know psychologically your fragile egos prevent any of you to admit you've been grifted by this admin and his campaign but read the Senate Intelligence Report. It's spelled out there. Read it. It will require you to read and comprehend but I know you guys can do it (at least I hope so).

Cue the "Nu uh, you're wrong" responses in 3,2,1.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say the Durham report will have as much of an impact as Obamagate. Which is nothing. No charges, nothing. Really sad. Trump tweets all the time about Obama spying on his campaign, yet, weird, no charges. I think it might be because he's lying?

Again, I await with bated breath the response of "Nu uh, you're wrong, charges are coming".
Anonymous said…
It's weird, all these indictments against Trump related people yet nothing ever against anyone associated with Obama? Maybe they're just better and criminaling. Maybe Trump people are bad at criminaling? Is that a word, criminaling?

Trumpsters need to work on their criminaling skills.
Anonymous said…
We don't need to read the Mueller Report to know it resulted in no charges against a duly-elected president. That's the bottomline. That and the sad fact that American taxpayers are on the hook for millions of dollars so Mueller and his lakeys could run a bullsh*t investigation and give the corrupt Democraps a little bit of hope that their lies and deceptive actions would result in hurting Trump and his team.

The Democraps are experts in using the judicial system to unfairly attack their opponents. They love to spend American taxpayer money on their quests for power even when they know they don't have a good case. They know the liberal media will at least help them get negative headlines and stories out to the public until they finally lose after our millions are spent needlessly. They don't mind spending our money for their obsession with power.

Funny that Amazon and the Marxist Democrat Party are so sensitive to 29 year old Kamala Harris sleeping with married 64 year old, Mayor Willie Brown to kick start her government career.

Biden plagiarized his way through law school and Kamala slept her way to her current position. Great combination.

Ok, so, to refute you again: I know you're triggered easily but try to calm down.

The Mueller report produced no evidence of collusion.

The Horowitz report was damning for the FBI and its handling of the Russia witch hunt.

Durham is already producing criminal indictments and guilty pleas from FBI people who admit their part in the hoax. Charges are coming, but they're also already here. Try to keep up lil guy!

I'll say it again. Kevin Clinesmith. Former FBI lawyer. Guilty plea. Is that so hard to understand? Lol

10:10 - The Mueller report also said "While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him".

One guy charged. That's what's been produced. Can't wait for all the other indictments. Score one for Trump against how many charged? The shut out is averted. Kudos.

Boring huh? Seems a little ad hominem to me.

You backtack and reverse yourself in a humorous way. First you claim massive Trump collusion, then it's what you said. A nothingburger, neither yes or no. In an investigation that was so corrupt that it produced the damning Horowitz report.

Then it's 'Durham's a joke, ha ha, where are the indictments and charges?' And when one is definitely cited you fall back to, 'Well where are the rest?'

Right now you're just comic relief.

Some FBI guy plead guilty to altering an email in relation to the Durham report and that settles it I guess. Everyone in the Obama admin is going down, it's coming, get ready. Ok.

Horowitz Report -"Our review identified significant concerns with how certain aspects of the investigation were conducted and supervised."

"The activities we found here don't vindicate anybody," he said in response to a question about whether former FBI Director James Comey should feel vindicated about how the bureau handled the investigation, dubbed "Crossfire Hurricane."

The report found that the bureau's decision to open an investigation "was in compliance with Department and FBI policies, and we did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced" the decision.

Keeping an eye on both sides, there were issues and concerns with conduct and supervision but none with the decision to open an investigation. You call this damning? I thought the argument was always that the investigation should never have been done. Horowitz refutes that.

^^^^^And yet you are trying to use facts to argue with Trumptards. Weird. They'll go for fantasy every time, and the more bizarre the better.
Anonymous said…
Well if you make up your own arguments and then refute them, what is someone else to do? Opening an investigation wouldn't be a problem--the issue is the gross misconduct involved in the investigation, which is plain in Horowitz.

Anyway, nothing new here. The Horowitz report found sustained abuses as has been said, all in service of an investigation that was transparently corrupt and partisan from the start. Wiggle if you lije, parse and cherry pick statements as you like, but the FBI was definitely in the wrong. Particularly in the matter of the FISA warrant--the silly fraud around which was the basis for the whole Russia investigation. Stop playing games please, it doesn't help your case.

And I think you intend irony with your other strawman, which is also weak; your hyperbole about 'everyone going down in the Obama administration'. It may be a small matter to you that a former FBI lawyer has copped a plea admitting to misconduct that will put him in jail. I understand why you'd want to downplay it, as it's the beginning of Durham's criminal indictments. But it's not going away, and there are more to come.

Do better.
