why is this so hard for republicans to understand?....
Early 2010 - According to the May 2013 Inspector General report, "Inappropriate Criteria Were Used to Identify Tax-Exempt Applications for Review," the inappropriate targeting of mainly conservative groups begins. This targeting involves delaying the processing of their applications and requesting information deemed unnecessary.
May 10, 2013 - Miller helps engineer an apology by Lois Lerner, the director of the Exempt Organizations Division since January 2006, through a planted question at an American Bar Association meeting.
May 15, 2013 - Miller is forced to resign by Treasury Secretary Jack Lew after it comes to light that he knew about the targeting. It is announced by President Barack Obama later that day.
May 23, 2013 - After Lerner refuses to resign, she is placed on administrative leave, according to Congressional sources in both parties.
April 10, 2014 - The Republican-led House Oversight Committee votes 21-12 to charge Lerner with contempt of Congress.
May 7, 2014 - Lerner is held in contempt of Congress by the House.
October 23, 2015 - The Justice Department notifies members of Congress that it is closing its two-year investigation into whether the IRS improperly targeted the tea party and other conservative groups. No charges will be brought against former IRS official Lois Lerner or anyone else at the agency. Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik says in the letter to Congress that the probe found "substantial evidence of mismanagement, poor judgment and institutional inertia leading to the belief by many tax-exempt applicants that the IRS targeted them based on their political viewpoints. But poor management is not a crime."

"He's a very vindictive, rather dangerous, rather sad man," said Branson during an interview with MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle Tuesday morning. "I would feel very uncomfortable — very, very uncomfortable — with somebody like Donald Trump in the White House," he told Ruhle, after she quizzed Branson on his recent blog post describing a business lunch many years ago when the two billionaires met for the first time. www.nbcnews.com...

Donald Trump offers to 'destroy' Texas state senator's career for Rockwall sheriff.
Concerning asset forfeiture laws, Sheriff Harold Eavenson said, "We've got a state senator in Texas that was talking about introducing legislation to require conviction before we could receive that forfeiture money. And I told him that the cartel would build a monument to him in Mexico if he could get that legislation passed."
Trump responded: "Who is the state senator? Do you want to give his name? We'll destroy his career."
I'm sure there are public servants who support Civil Asset Forfeiture.
But libertarians and real conservatives (and even some liberals) who believe in the rule of law and due process, are firmly against it.
Very few policies are as unAmerican as Civil Asset Forfeiture.
Trump called Snowden a traitor for essentially exposing a criminal government.
I found this to be extremely disappointing.
Here is the video of the actual exchange.

Well this so called 'fascist'.
Isnt stupid enough to travel with thousands of dollars on their person or in their vehicle.
That shouldn't be an issue.....we SHOULD be able to do that w out fear of it being taken and never returned due to a unconstitutional law
How can you not see this? Or are you just being intentional obtuse as to not implicate your candidate?
What happened to "Trust me if he goes against the constitution those of us that voted for him will be the first to call him out and hold his feet to the fire"
