Somewhere at Fox News they hope they can obtain a video of 6 black teens beating up an elderly white lady.

Trump must have found out about the investigation around the time he started tweeting that Obama was eavesdropping on his dumps on the golden throne at Trump Tower.

I swear Trump has the same mental age as my 8 year old son. He got in mild trouble at school for searching for Power Rangers on the computer and his only defense was, "Daniel did it too." Any time Trump thinks he's about get hammered for something he did, he goes on the offensive. Only the offensive is, "look how bad the other guy is".

I like how that tweet is pretty much an admittance of guilt

I can never tell how biased tweets are...obviously this news coming out today is notable but just how big of a deal is it?

No one will know for sure until the investigation is done. It could be nothing or Trump could leave the Whitehouse in cuffs.

It's a big deal because it continues his 60 days of crap.
It hurts his credibility, it helped proves he lied. It takes away his agenda of trying to move forward from Russia and Obama because it does nothing but keep it in the spotlight. I'm skeptical of anything being proven with collusion but this is more of a slow bleed rather than gushing everywhere.

You know it's going to drive him bat horsefeathers crazy(ier).

Either way, Putin wins. Useful idiots abound in 2017 America.

Two things that should also be taken away from this is....





From the President's and not personal account, Trump is accusing Obama of leaking Flynn to the media as well as Obama and/or staff leaking names to the media.

This is just as bad as accusing Obama and the British of wire-tapping.

The other take away is that President Trump is incriminating himself in front the entire world.

Yes, I'm sure Obama never once made any deals or talked policy on the golf course. Not ever

Let the throwing of horsefeathers on the wall begin.
And then, understating the role of Trump’s former campaign chairman, Spicer added: “There has been discussion of Paul Manafort, who played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time.”

Manafort ran Trump’s campaign for several months last year before he resigned in August, while he was facing scrutiny for his ties to pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine.


Let's see, you have your campaign manager for several months including the important months of the nomination as well as picking Pence and you're labeling him as playing a limited role for a limited amount of time?

And stating the most contact you had with Carter Page (Trump policy adviser) was a cease and desist letter?

Glad to see Trump guide the Costa Concordia.

That second one is pretty misleading. He didn't exactly say that and certainly makes it sound like the POTUS would have to provide some kind of reason they needed the name revealed.

pathetic hacks like gowdy and nunes basically held up a giant flashing sign today that said "WE AREN'T GOING TO SERIOUSLY INVESTIGATE THIS PRESIDENT EVER, FOR ANY REASON." the question is whether the rest of the GOP goes along with this plan, or actually decides to give a crap about the president committing illegal acts and possibly being compromised by a foreign government.

Gowdy and Nunes put their party ahead of the country. They would rather stay in office in a complete horsefeathers show rather than move on to make this country even tolerable.

U.S. to ban some airline passengers from carrying larger electronics


funny how it only applies to brown-people airlines coming from brown-people countries. it's almost like it's economic protectionism masquerading as something that is designed to keep americans safe.

hopefully the terrorists are too stupid to figure out that they can just fly direct on a non-middle eastern airline, or connect through london and blow up their laptop on a flight from heathrow to jfk.

I admittedly don't know much about Neil Gorsuch, but he's a very convincing guy in these confirmation hearings. He stands out as particularly sane in the face of the rest of the room he's sitting in
