Speculation, not provable. No tape of Trump
saying to Comey 'You do this or you're fired!'.
It's too bad the Dems have never heard of
'evidence' before they started screaming
their heads off. So far no crime has been
shown, and there kinda sorta has to be a
crime for an impeachment.



I believe the term is "high crimes and misdemeanors". Back to grade school for you.

"In a court of law" applies. Everyone with a brain who is not completely blinded by Fox understands that Comey is telling the truth. But prove that in a court beyond a reasonable doubt.

SCOTUS will likely use Trump's tweets to uphold the lower court's ruling banning the travel ban as intent to ban on the basis of religion which is against the constitution.

Whether the same applies to an obstruction of justice hearing remains to be seen.

I think I will make a trip into the office tomorrow in order to avoid the mayhem on TV tomorrow.

our friend Bill still found himself impeached over it.



He did? I always thought he was impeached for
the crime of lying under oath. Key word here
is 'crime'. No president has ever been thrown
out of office, let alone one by his own party.
Both Andrew Johnson and Clinton were
impeached by the opposition party. No
party in it's right mind would ever impeach
their own president, it would be political
suicide in the next election. But dream on,

Before Trump inauguration: Comey Should Resign


October 2016: CNN calls for Comey to resign

link=http://www.cnn.com/2016/10/28/opinions/fbi-director-comey-should-resign-opinion-callan/

So Comey memorialized every meeting with Trump but allowed Hillary to be interviewed without notes taken. And this man is considered credible.

It was enough to put him under oath. Let's do the same for the orange man and see how long he lasts without perjuring himself.

Dems won't be the opposition party for long when the Republican's are choking this hard on the power they've been given.

WTF is up with Jeff Sessions?

Quote:

I took the opportunity to implore
the Attorney General to prevent any future direct communication between the
President and me. I told the AG that what had just happened – him being asked to
leave while the FBI Director, who reports to the AG, remained behind – was
inappropriate and should never happen. He did not reply.



Sessions then recuses himself from the Russia investigation.

Sessions then recommends firing Comey, who was leading the Russia investigation.

So Comey admits that he directed his buddy to leak the content of the Oval Office conversation about Flynn to the media. He explicitly stated that by doing this, he had the goal of getting a Special Prosecutor appointed.

So - the guy who was running the Russia investigation until he was fired REALLY wanted an independent Special Prosecutor to pick up where he left off?

Would he really go to those lengths if there was no "there there" to all this Russia stuff?

So Trump is totally exonerated of any crimes
he could be impeached for. This was all
just Comey being a media whore, not a
big surprise. We did learn McCain is a mental
case and that Loretta Lynch needs to be perp
walked, so the day wasn't a total loss.

But it's a crime they want him on, that's

impeachment, like it did with Clinton.
He got caught lying under oath, they

That's an excellent argument for why Trump's own party would want to impeach him...

Boot him out, put Pence in play, and they'll get back some of the base they've lost as well as make it harder for Democrats to oust them in the future.

Impeaching and getting rid of Trump is something the GOP should actually WANT to do at this point.... It's in their best interest.

Nothing is going to happen to Trump, but that doesn't mean he's the right man. I think he's going to go down in history as a slightly-below-average President; he won't "destroy" the U.S. any more than Obama (i.e., not at all), but he also won't get much of anything done. I'm giving it a few more months and then I think the media and his opponents will get tired of trying to make something stick and we'll settle into a routine and he'll actually finish up his term with average-at-best approval ratings.

If nothing happened to Hillary for all the felonies and murders she is responsible for overseas then why would anything happen to Trump?

To say he will be a slightly below average president when no time has passed to really judge his term is unfair. Additionally to attach below average to Obama is also a misstatement. He was hands down the worse president, jimmy Carter can die happy knowing he no longer has that "honor"

His crime is not whether or not he was under investigation. At this point, his crime will be whether or not he obstructed justice by trying to kill something he wasn't even under investigation for.

And like someone else said, just because he wasn't under investigation then doesn't mean that he isn't under investigation now.

Anyway, I took Comey's words from his memos as meaning that he wasn't under investigation for the Russian hooker thing. He didn't say whether he was or wasn't​ under investigation for something else.

Alan Dershowitz, legal expert, has been saying
for weeks that even if Trump had ordered an
end to an FBI investigation, it was within the
law for him to do so. And Dershowitz is no
Trump fan.

"I think it is important to put to rest the notion that there was anything criminal about the president exercising his constitutional power to fire Comey and to request – “hope” – that he let go the investigation of General Flynn. Just as the president would have had the constitutional power to pardon Flynn and thus end the criminal investigation of him, he certainly had the authority to request the director of the FBI to end his investigation of Flynn."

Not even close to true.

The isolated question was, is Trump personally under investigation by the FBI for the Russian election interference? The answer was, no, at least until April 11, the last time Comey told him that; that answer could have changed since then or in the future, depending on where the investigation leads.

That is distinct from, did the Trump campaign (of which Trump is the head ) or any of Trump's associates have any involvement, to which the answer WE know is currently possibly, but classified. If that answer is yes, then Trump will inevitably become at least a person of interest, as to whether he knew, what he knew, when he knew it, did he participate, did he try to hide it after the fact, etc. Any of those may well be criminal, depending on what happened.

No exoneration possible at this time, and won't be until the investigation is concluded. Trump's personal lawyer can claim whatever he likes, but he's a paid mouthpiece, not a person with firsthand knowledge, and not under oath.

Also, impeachment is a political decision, not requiring proven criminal activity. Impropriety, bad judgement, loss of confidence in his ability or fitness for office, transgressions short of criminal liability can lead to impeachment proceedings.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

It's a fantasy, Barb. Even the staunchest Trump
haters are seeing it's a pipe dream. Throwing
a president out of office has never happened
in our history, it's a very big deal. I wish the

I'm not holding my breath, Bob, I promise. It breaks my heart, though, to see our country crumble like this over such a piece of scum.

What Comey experienced and tried to explain was workplace harassment. He's probably always been a driven, Alpha male, tall and too smart, so he's never been subject to it before. The innuendo, the quid pro quo, the trapped feeling, all that power stuff Trump is a master at.

If Comey was a woman, and Trump was her boss, and these things happened:

- Unwanted, forced invitation to dinner that could not be turned down.,

- Dinner implied as a group, but turned out to be just the two of them.

- Asked if she wants to keep their job that is supposed to be beyond patronage, then she must pledge loyalty.

- Called out of a work crowd for personal, unwanted contact (handshake-hug) with a shot about popularity.

- Held after a required meeting for inappropriate f2f conference (chain of command) where an improper request was made.

- Claimed a personal attachment that did not exist ("that thing we had") as a reason she should do something unethical.

- Got fired for doing her job, when her job required doing things that threatened that boss.

She would sue, and win, for harassment. Company would likely fire or demote her boss. Every working woman watching that today recognized the pattern.

I think it would be brilliant and ironic if Comey filed an EOE complaint against Trump, except he's not in a class protected by that statute.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

The first thing he said to her: "I won the popular vote. 3-5 million people voted illegally. And I'm not even counting California."

So when you righties complain that us lefties keep bringing up the popular vote and "it doesn't matter." IT MATTERS TO DONALD. That's why we're gonna keep bringing it up.

So our dumbass President doesn't even know that Qatar is home to our largest military base in the Mideast?
Really? Man, I tell you, if we lose our men and women because of one of Trump's stupid comments, or actions, then I hold the Gullibles accountable! Damn Sheep..........

From Reuter's:
"The Pentagon on Tuesday renewed praise of Qatar for hosting a vital U.S. air base and for its "enduring commitment to regional security," sticking to a message of reassurance even as President Donald Trump, via Twitter, applauded a decision by Arab powers to cut ties to the Gulf ally.

It was the latest example of the tightrope that U.S. officials are walking as Trump's tweets raise questions about existing U.S. policy and the carefully scripted talking points used to explain it.

In the case of Qatar, the stakes are high. More than 11,000 U.S. and coalition forces are deployed to or assigned to al Udeid Air Base, from which more than 100 aircraft operate.

Of those 11,000, nearly 1,000 work in a combined air operations center that helps oversee missions for campaigns in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, the military says."

Way to cherry pick the highlights. Total non-farm employment gains still trending downwards and has been since 2015. Trump has excited his sectors while worsening others.

Trump, as expected, will survive this. The Republican's talking point of "he doesn't know what he is doing, he's new" while completely bat-shi* alarming, will placate his supporters. Democrats yell, "he did this, he did that!" Republicans reply, "he's so refreshing!"

The Russia/Trump campaign investigation will continue. Comey's contribution, accurately told, was that he was fired to stop the Russia investigation, which of course is a large violation of ethics.

Does not one GOP on this forum see their own hypocrisy when it is so clear that a foreign player intervened so heavily in your election and was encouraged to by the GOP, yet simply shrug their shoulders. Exactly how would you feel if the Russians decided to support a democratic dolt like Bernie Sanders. "Communist!, Sanders is going to turn the country into a socialist dictatorship like Lenin". There were those on this forum who believed strongly 8 years ago that Obama was going to be the last president. There were those in this forum who believed the FoxNews drivel that Obama was setting up a shadow government down the street from the WhiteHouse.

And there will be those of you who believe that he had nothing to do with Russia's contribution to the election of 2016, despite the direct quotes from him on the campaign asking them to hack Hillary's email account while his campaign worked directly with Russian counterparts to undermine the democratic process that Americans so love and cherish. Hypocrisy indeed.

He's learning k. On a scale of 1 to America, I think he's about an 8 right now.

If nothing happened to Hillary for all the felonies and murders she is responsible for overseas....



LOL

Quote:

To say he will be a slightly below average president when no time has passed to really judge his term is unfair.



No it isn't. He's been a public figure for decades. It is completely fair and logical to judge him as a public persona and extrapolate how he will handle the Presidency.

Quote:

Additionally to attach below average to Obama is also a misstatement. He was hands down the worse president, jimmy Carter can die happy knowing he no longer has that "honor"



Uh huh. So you've studied, in complete detail, every single President in history, their personal lives, their public lives, their policies, the effects of said policies on both domestic and foreign affairs, objectively contrasted and compared all of the above information, and have personally concluded that Carter and Obama are without question the two worst Presidents in American history? That's quite an impressive feat. Perhaps you should write a book about it. I'm sure there are many Presidential scholars and historians that would love to hear your reasoning.

Nancy Pelosi says "I'm concerned about his fitness for office", referring to Trumpy. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.........
Two of a kind morons.

Yes, crumbling. In 20 directions at once. Biggest whack-a-mole Administration in our history, and the worst potential for disaster.

Edit:As I was typing this, Rex Tillerson just jumped on the air to make a statement, trying to do damage control over Trump's idiotic and uninformed tweet about Qatar. He'll be pursuing a diplomatic solution to the regional crisis.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
