Imagine the bloodbath if Fox or the WH applied the same standards.



Well, Fox is purely entertainment so they don't need to have any journalistic standards.

Trump is known for going thru staff
people till he finds what he wants.



Well, that makes sense he would do it that way since he's a terrible businessman.

left, it had nothing to do with Trump.
It was their personal life, or their past,
or who they worked for in the administration.



Right.

Just sit back and enjoy that tax cut.



We are, that is those of us who pay more than $1 a year in Federal Incone Tax are. Posted here by you, only taking you at your word.

But don’t worry, most of us are still paying our “fair share” to support those like you (again self admitted) who don’t.

But I get you are “retired”, is it all you envisioned?

Scott Pruit is an asset to the Democrats. As I heard someone note today, someone else could do a hatchet job on the EPA without all the corruptive influences.

Is Trump just too stupid to fire him?
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

Findings that Russia meddled to help Trump beat Clinton were "accurate and on point," says Senate Intel Panel.

In May, Senate Intelligence Committee leaders backed the 2017 intel community report that formally accused Russia of trying to interfere in the election to the Trump campaign's benefit.

"The Russian effort was extensive, sophisticated and ordered by President Putin himself for the purpose of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton," top Senate committee Democrat Mark Warner said in a joint statement at the time.
....
“As numerous intelligence and national security officials in the Trump administration have since unanimously re-affirmed, the ICA findings were accurate and on point," Warner said.
.....
“The bottom line: The Russians did commit active measures against our election in 2016, and we think they will do that in the future,” Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, said in March. “We disagree with the narrative that they were trying to help Trump.”
......
But some key Republicans said that it seemed Russia was, in fact, trying to help Trump win. In a statement earlier this year, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said it was “clear based on the evidence” that Putin wanted Clinton to lose in November.

Findings that Russia meddled



House says no, senate says yes, they
cancel each other out. Russia has
'meddled' in our elections since
Ike ran in 52. Where's the info in
these reports that says the Russians
won the election for Trump. Why
did they leave that out, I thought
that was the point of all this. This
whole thing becomes a bigger cluster
circle by the day..

Why wouldn't Putin prefer Trump over Clinton? After watching the Obama admin turn Libya into a Jihadi factory, from the most progressive country in MENA. After Obama and Hillary's attempt to portray Crimea as an invasion by Russia, after the Obama regime's attempt to destabilize Syria and now Yemen, why wouldn't Russia prefer Trump? That's ridiculous. Of course he preferred Trump, that is only logical and wasn't a secret.

A lot of Americans preferred Trump over Hillary as well.

It is. The investigation is not over yet, as far as I know, which is why the evidence (if there is any) hasn't been released. That's how criminal investigations work.

When Obama said, Leave the EU and the “U.K. is going to be in the back of the queue” on trade deals with the U.S." , somehow that wasn't meddling with a UK election ?

Not when Nunez proved himself to be a Trump lackey, consulting with the White House and leaking confidential information entrusted to the House committee. And suppressed the minority report which provided factual contradictory evidence that aligned (we know now) with the Senate conclusions. And was so tainted by his transgressions he had to recuse himself. Except he didn't actually recuse himself, he just said he did, then manipulated the process further.

No equivalency at all in those two reports, not with that methodology.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
