Talk about uninformed blathering. :lol:

No shit

I've said as much many times in this thread. My post doesn't contradict it.
Huh? You just said Federal charges get you indicted, that ain't happening to Trump. I think all your Russia Russia Russia narratives are getting to you. :lol:

With this “Trump-Russia Megathread” I just skimmed the 150 or so posts of blather on here from this past week. Unless I missed it, I don’t see anything to do with Tump & Russia..3k plus posts on here over the last 1 1/2 years+, and I bet 99% have nothing to do with Trump and Russia. So someone please wake me up when there is some news that involves Trump and Russia.

This investigation isn't just about Russia.

Section B.2:
ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation
Section C:
If the Special Counsel believes it is necessary and appropriate, the Special Counsel is authorized to prosecute federal crimes arising from the investigation of these matters.

But I know that you, someone who pretends to like law and order, doesn't actually give a damn about law and order. Because you're a hypocrite - always - and likely forever. I can see it now:

NPR: "Breaking News - Trump ordered murder to cover-up illegal campaign payments."
BDK: "It has nothing to do with Russia. #witchhunt #MAGA #librultears #winning."

Goddamn, dude.

Cohen is indicted for it. I never said Trump would be indicted for it.... In fact, I said the opposite

Allen Weisselberg, President Trump’s longtime financial gatekeeper, was granted immunity by federal prosecutors for providing information about Michael Cohen in the criminal investigation into hush-money payments for two women during the 2016 presidential campaign,

He's worked for Trump for 30+ years. This one is big - the dude knows everything.

People are beginning to flip left and right; it's apparent Mueller knows way more than any of us think.

But hey, a thief surrounded himself with thieves...and you know how the old saying goes.

Look at the thread title. Its the "Trump - Russia megathread" Its not Trump did this, or Trump is accused of that, or a Trump associate did that thread, or about Mueller's giant fishing expedition that has nothing to do with Trump/Russia.

You know the point dude. The part of America that mattered in the election was tired of the usual DC bullshit. Trump was the thumb in the eye to a government that has hovered below 20% favoribility for years.

America wants a change. The Left brings someone forward who won't toe the line (ha! I r smart. I learn) and they might get elected too.

It takes a 2/3 vote in the Senate to remove a President following an impeachment. Not just a Senate rule, a Constitutional detail. Democrats could win the Senate but gaining a 2/3 majority is impossible right now. Only way Trump is removed from office is if Republicans think setting Pence up as a sure thing in 2020 would be the outcome.
if they lose the Senate there will be Republican Senators that won't be interested in holding out until the bitter end. :coffee:

I don't think there are enough Senators, on either side of the aisle actually, with enough morals and principles to do as you predict they would. Trump didn't burst on the scene and change the game, rather, he's the product of where we've been heading politically for multiple decades. You think too highly of those in elected office. Odd for you.

You may as well say if the Browns win the Super Bowl. The donks aren't going to win the Senate.. :lol:

35 Senate seats on the ballot (33 regular election + 2 special election). Donks would need to gain 2 seats to gain control of the Senate.
Donks have to defend 26 seats (including 2 indy that caucus with the donks), 10 in states Trump won, including several deep red states.
Conks have to defend 9 seats, 1 in a state Clinton won.

Lots of extraneous shit flies in this thread. We've had Seth Rich, Pizzagate, Deep State conspiracies, etc. All is welcome. :thumb:

I added the "Trump - Russia Megathread" part when someone complained about not being able to find it.

It was around the same time it came out that Don Jr., Kushner, and Manafort attended a meeting with a Kremlin lawyer offering info as "part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump." That's still a thing.

As is the fact that Stone was communicating with the Russian GRU agents who hacked the DNC. We'll hear more about that after Andrew Miller is finally forced to testify. :thumb:

Cohen's lawyer says he has info on the Trump Tower meeting and Trump's pre-public knowlege about the hacking. Relevant. :nod:

Andrew Miller, Roger Stone's aide who'd been resisting the investigation, flipped this evening. The FBI is now passing out immunity like candy; they clearly have a big fish or two on the radar.

Mueller: "Get me Roger Stone..."

Now let's see how long Stone takes to flip. :lol:

I am all for justice. If someone did something wrong, an appropriate price needs to be paid. Nobody should be above the law, including Trump.

But how about we do a real investigation into these as well?

Big coordinated effort to start investigating HRC and the DNC this weekend ( pushed of course by the Pres a and Fox), and now Trump is dangling the Weiner laptop emails.
