    I believe it’s happened only once if memory serves me correctly. I can’t imagine a bigger embarrassment which means I really want it to happen to Trump.

    Also, I think career politicians is a problem for sure but lobbyist money is the big evil IMO.

    I'm a bit hesitant to automatically condemn this meeting. We have some interests that align; I would expect our intelligence communities to fully pursue those mutual interests. I would have to know more.

    Trump Jr. tried to broker deal in exchange for dirt on HRC according to Russian Lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

    “Looking ahead, if we come to power, we can return to this issue and think what to do about it,’’ Trump Jr.

    She also said that Trump Jr. had asked her for written proof of her claim that Ziff Brothers Investments had evaded U.S. taxes while donating heavily to Clinton and other Democratic candidates.

    Her comments add to a growing body of evidence indicating that the Trump campaign was willing to change official U.S. policy to please Russia in return for anything that would help win the election.

    We knew that they had attempted to hack 21 states. This is confirmation that they actually got through in several of them.

    really good thing we're going forward with sanctions on Russia... especially in light of both the head Trump's CIA and Sec of State both saying they know Russia is going to try and disrupt 2018.

    https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-new...-better-prepared-new-russian-election-n845396

    Makes total sense.

    How is Trump refusing to enact sanctions not a driving story every night... or at least a button every time anyone talks Russia investigation? The media is failing the American people by not hammering that home.

    Maybe it's news because they're like, "Hey, you people forget about this???" and they decided to remind us, lol.

    That could be! I completely forgot that they penetrated four states. So much has happened since that report!

    The sheer volume of things Trump does that deviate from the norm make it nearly impossible to stick to one story long enough to flesh out the scope of the offense. Anyone that does will be ten stories behind everyone else that's trying to keep up. After a while, most people zone out and then he can claim that the big mean media just has it out for him. The formula works pretty well, unfortunately.

    It's all part of his plan...it's no accident.

    Jeb Bush was 100% correct when he called Drumpf, "a chaos candidate."
