Imho it is because trump has been stupid enough to publicly say it is a witch hunt..
I bet that making crazy claims in public isn’t a legal risk, but filing fake charges to attack your political opponent is.. so no one is willing to sign their name to it.
Once that happens there is a papertrail and the stakes go up dramatically..
Normally they might could just play stupid and do it anyway, but I bet trump has been running around saying “find me something, anything to deflect against the Russian investigations!”
So Jeff Sessions knows it will end up right back in his lap, and trump wouldn’t bat an eye.
Pretend you are Trump - I'm sure you just retched a little - and you know you really had nothing to do with Russia yet 10,000 stories are coming out saying you did. What are you supposed to do other than say the stories are a lie? Just say nothing and have everyone assume the allegations are true, of course not he had no choice to attack back and the more dramatically the better, thus fake news was born.
What is a persons natural reaction when they are falsely accused - to vehemently deny, if someone doesn't do that cops find it highly suspicious. Yet it just makes trump haters more angry that he dare lie - that is an illogical reaction, you should be thinking maybe these charges are false.
You like many others I have met seem so triggered by him, you will not even consider the news actually is fake even though it is by far the most logical explanation.
Look, I have learned looking at people's actions are far more likely to get you to the truth than any speech ever will.
Trumps actions since the election have not benefited Russia at all. He pissed them off in Syria, and has supported US energy production which hurts Russia badly since energy production is there main source of income.
Despite what I'm sure you think, I also think he has been very patient with the investigations against him, because he knows if they are done fairly they will clear his name.
Do you really think with the ego he has if he knew he was guilty he would be protesting so vociferously? If he is proven to be a liar he goes down in history as a POS president who lied worse than Nixon.
What do you think is more important to him than his reputation? This is a man that brands everything with his name. I can guarentee you if he was guilty of Russian collusion he would have resigned long ago, not dig a deeper hole that is impossible to get out of.
All you trump haters keep claiming he is deflecting, he's scared. No he's not if he was really deflecting he would start a war or something, or at least try and fire mueller, not write another string of twitters like he has been doing all along for the last two years. You also say he is always lying yet most of his supposed lies are not lies you are just convinced they are because you are so sure you know the truth.
What it usually comes down to with you haters is you can't stand the way he speaks. You can't stand He talks at a third grade level and is not presidential. In other words you value style over substance. You hate it so much you will believe any BS that is hurled his direction.
Well guess what hatred alone isn't going to get him removed - it has to be proven he actually did something impeachable, and no matter how elaborate your fantasies of Russian collusion get they still have to be proven. It is not going to happen, and you need to start preparing yourself for that reality.

What got leaked???
Can you please quote the incriminating email(s)?
I can quote the one from Jr....you know the one where explicitly admits to going to a meeting for the purpose of colluding..
Emin just called and asked me to contact you with something very interesting.
The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father.
This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump - helped along by Aras and Emin.
What do you think is the best way to handle this information and would you be able to speak to Emin about it directly?
I can also send this info to your father via Rhona, but it is ultra sensitive so wanted to send to you first.
Can you do the same.
Nobody would choose to subject themselves to the level of hate he is receiving unless they were doing what they thought was right and needed to persevere, or they were a power hungry dictator who was going to crush his opposition.
What part of going to meet with representatives of the Russian government, for the purpose of gaining counter intelligence on hillary do you not understand???

It is beyond ridiculous not to mention painfully desperate to argue that the comments of one individual at one outlet speaks for "the liberal media."
This thread is beyond ridiculous. Indictments are coming.
