It absolutely is about justice. This man has surrounded himself with criminals. Do you ever ask yourself why?
So there is a blinding double standard with regard to your posts. I know it's easy to see from my house, but perhaps not so much from your vantage point. Have a great day and be safe.

I dont see how the destruction of subpoenaed evidence is potentially not a crime.
How would the fbi ever prove there was intent?

I believe they will fail. But if they succeed and impeach Trump, I will attack.
Jarrett said that "you can collude all you want with a foreign government in an election," because there’s no law that says collusion is a crime.
Three prominent election law scholars said there are at least four laws that would prohibit the sort of activities under investigation, whether those laws mention collusion or not. Jarrett’s focus on a single word fails to reflect the reach of the criminal code.
We rate this claim False.
The idea that only russians connected to trump needed to be investigated because russia hated hillary is absolutely mind numbingly absurd.
You yourself admit that russian sought to cause general unrest well before that. SO why would we want to investigate everyone with russian connections, regardless of what dies they were on?
The fact is that both during and definitely after the election, russians put out post that hurt trump. So what is the excuse for not looking into people that are against trump and their connection to russians?
Its just a thinly veiled argument to say what is really going on; we know that foriegn influence in rampant throughjout washington, we know that many shady russians had connections to hillary and the dnc, but we only want to look at the ones close to trump.
For some reason he was not charged for the same crime manafort was, lobbying for russians in 2012. I wonder who he was lobbbying t? Perhaps secretary of state Hillary clinton?
WASHINGTON — Robert Mueller, the special counsel, has referred three investigations into possible illicit foreign lobbying by Washington insiders to federal prosecutors in New York who are already handling the case against President Donald Trump’s former lawyer, according to multiple people familiar with the cases.
They also tie into the special counsel investigation of Trump: All three cases are linked to Paul Manafort, the president’s former campaign chairman, whose trial on financial fraud charges began Tuesday in Alexandria, Virginia.
The cases involve Gregory Craig, who served as the White House counsel under President Barack Obama before leaving to work for the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom; former Rep. Vin Weber, R-Minn., who joined a lobbying firm after leaving Congress; and Podesta, a high-powered Washington lobbyist whose brother, John Podesta, was the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
People on her team are reported to have met with kislyak. People on her team got ukranian government help against trump. Oh and her former lawyer and cheerleader lanny davis is also represnting convicted russian oligarch mobster firtsah (and trump lawyer cohen, no conflict there!)
Glenn simpson was in contact with deripaska, a russian oligarch that manafort had connections to all thourought the dossier writing. He was facuiltating cinverasations between deripaska, mark warner, and steele (some of which warner wanted "no paper trail" for for some reason)
I mean, sure, he lied to the fbi, leaked to the press, and got fired for it, but yeah a standup guy.
I find it funny how anytime someone on your side is dealing with russian oligarchs, even the exact same ones that you want trump people investigated for, its just they are standup guys so it cool
Steele was working with glenn simpson directly contacting deripaska. You know, that russian oligarch that manafort had to be investigated for having connections to?
Not only that, but they were all in contact with bruce ohr from obamas doj, and mark warner senate intel vice chair.
Steele is in cionne ction with ohr and warner AFTER he was fired from the fbi. He is discussing how he hopes the "firewall" holds up from all of this.
