It's been brought to light....repeatedly. No other person on the face of the earth could get by with using bleach-bit and disposing of over 30 thousand e-mails...after which a hammer was taken to the computers. If you or I did that we would be indicted.

brought to light meaning charges or indictments.   that's how our system works.  if Republicans uncovered actual crimes there would be charges.  There weren't.
absolutely nothing will be found.

there is nothing to be found.

Because the owner of the tabloid is David Becker, longtime friend of Donald Trump.   Same guy who paid to squash negative stories about Trump's infidelity with a porn star and a playboy bunny.  Same guy which is cooperating with the SDNY investigation into those campaign finance law violations.   

a big question to me is how did the National Enquirer get the photos of Bezos.

It's a sleaze rag -- just about anyone could have taken the Bezos pics and sold them.  And, so what if Becker is a friend of Trump's? Everyone knows the Enquirer isn't real news. I believe you when you say Becker wanted to quash stories of Trump - but in this day and age -- what a person does in private should stay private. I said the same thing about Bill and Monica -- it never should have made the news. I bet Bill had a couple of friends in left-leaning media that downplayed that story as well. There's nothing new under the sun.

What I WISH we could do is get back to judging political entities by their political agenda. Instead, we're all about who slept with whom, who kissed up to Russia bigger, and who wore blackface as a child during a Michael Jackson contest. Honestly -- we can do better.

I think the email investigation was a farce. I also think this Trump-Russia investigation is a farce. These kinds of investigations take a crap-ton of taxpayer money and they accomplish nothing.

Let's just do away with congressional oversight, and if there's any indication that laws were broken or national security negatively impacted, just drop it!

I posted this on another thread and either you missed it or intentionally ignored it, so I am doing you a favor and brought it over here:


Uh oh, Pepsi........

Senate panel chief sees no Trump-Russia collusion so far: report
Reuters Reuters 8 hours ago

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The chairman of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee said its Russia investigation has found no proof that President Donald Trump's presidential campaign colluded with Moscow, an assertion that congressional sources said puts him at odds with Democrats on the largely bipartisan panel.

"If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don't have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia," Republican Richard Burr told CBS News in an interview published on Thursday.

Burr said the committee, which has been investigating alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. election two years, has not begun drafting its final report. He also could not say how much of it ultimately would be declassified, according to CBS.

While there has been extensive bipartisan cooperation on the Senate panel, including between Burr and ranking Democrat Mark Warner, Democrats seriously disagree with Burr on evidence of collusion, according to congressional sources familiar with internal committee discussions.

First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

Are you in favor of using congressional oversight as a political tool?

Because, that's what's happening.

Many people have marriage problems, it's not a crime.   Do you know what is a crime?  Bribery, extortion, blackmail..


Nothing is a crime until it's proven....by a court of law. Not in your mind.

Pepsi....do you know how I know just how disingenuous you are? Because there has not been one thing that President Trump has accomplished that you have been happy about...not one damn thing. How sad.

That's always been the case and always will be.. congress is a political body, I mean duh?    If there is evidence of wrong doing the opposition party's desire is to expose it.   Sometimes, and in the case of republicans, almost always, politicians in the same party as the one accused assist with cover up - that's also politics.

Pepsi......I take it that you didn't read the "Trump accomplishments" thread that Calypso Jones posted...maybe 2 or 3 days ago?

Perhaps I'm old-fashioned, but I don't see that sort of behavior as acceptable. Yes, it happens, but should we not strive to be better?
