  • Over the past two years, members of the Trump campaign have minimized the impact of Russian election interference, even questioning whether they would call the FBI if offered foreign opposition research again. Subscribe to The Washington Post on IDclips: wapo.st/2QOdcqK

    "If we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the president clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standard."

    So why didn't Junior Trump report the Russian dirt offer to the FBI? . Like father, like son.
    No one believes that Trumps who cheat and steal from their own charity give a s--t about adoption!!

    WP has gone full "Nanny-nanny-boo-boo" news with this. Seriously, it appears that politically we really are speaking two different languages here. I don't see anything glaringly important or revealing in this sound-bite hack-job that looks like it was put together by a conspiracy-addled sophomoric intern. On the other hand, the MSM still keeps pushing these page filling nothing burger drivel since these "dog whistles" get a click from somebody juiced by the crypto coded "micro-confessions" purportedly revealed herein. There must be some hidden gotchas that just don't pass the muster of ardent revelation to my ears that must resonate with those who are capable of seeing smoking guns in cloud formations. These sound bites don't even appear to be associated with the hypothesis in the title. No wonder independent news sources are kicking their ... . I, for one, would like to see these supposedly professional outlets, WP especially, release unedited long-form discussions complete with actual sources. I will say this to WP's credit, at least they still have comments enabled. Thanks WP for letting me rant, and thanks to IDclips for leaving this pile of dog ... on my porch.

      Dave Willmore, She might’ve been a bit shady during the 2016 election. After all, Hillary IS a Corporate Centrist Democrat, who wants maybe, to cater to her big donors. And not do much for the other (99%) constituents. I don’t believe what u said re Hillary paying Russians for dirt on Trump. Actually, I heard that the situation back then was exactly the opposite. Why do you think the Mueller Report was begun? There were suspicions/accusations that Trump, an his Admin/staff may have colluded w/Russia for dirt on Hillary, during his 2016 campaign. Not enough evidence to indict, doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. Plus, remember that the MReport actually DID find that Trump committed at least 10 counts of Obstruction during his campaign and his Presidency. These are the facts as I’ve researched them on Independent Media. If u try other news outlets, and wean urself off of Focks News, you’ll be able, perhaps, to find another source for the Truth.

      Yeah Hillary actually paid for opposition research from Russian sources (unlike Trump) and isn't in prison! She is proven to be above the law! Or is getting dirt from foreign sources not such a big deal after all? Guess it's legal if it's dirt on Trump, but not if it's dirt on Democrats.

    Hillery Clinton paid Glen Simpson of Fusion GPS / who went to Christopher Steele, an X British intelligence officer with MI6 who contacted extreme high level Russians for information. .. Trump is theorizing in this article but Hillary actually did get dirt from Russia. She ended up with a fake report, gave it to the FBI , who at that point knew it was all false information and used it to open FISA warrants to spy on Trump and Co. Warrants were renewed 3 times, all on un verified information.

    every 3 days or so the american public is expected to become impressed or interested in the desperate dishonest disgraced democrat pleas for negative attention and their revoked 'sharing' routines. the president certainly and accurately deploys the correct context of concern and does not ignore the polluted terms of 'respect' that our corrupt clinton scam priorities seek to command. its not just a testament to his american language replacing expired obama era interference intentions without their permission with public approval (but the consensus and polls !), its also a symbol of how democrats 'service' definitions do not suit the elected perspectives or executive responsibility, especially including the tabloid trash trump tantrum press' commitment to subverting democracy with their criminal partnerships, that are not awarded the applause they advertise for, and avoiding the actual questions. lock her up.

      RoJo, Trump told us that we were going to get medicare and it was going to be cheaper than ACA. Trump also said that he was going to give the middle class tax cuts just before the 2018 election. He said that he didn't know who Stormy Daniels was or Karen McDougal. He had illegal migrants working at all his golf clubs. He knew they were in the country illegally. Wow, just wow. I actually feel bad for you.
