And further

You now know the fbi used a document provided by a foreign spy, paid for by Hillary’s team, sources by kremlin officials, and unverified to spy on trumps campaign

Instead of deflecting to republican not charging any crimes here

The question is, are you ok with this?


yes. I'm aware of all this.

I'm not questioning the legality of the warrant or how the dossier was acquired .

what boggles my mind is why nearly 3 years in, and when trump was at the height of his popularity, a red house and Senate at the time, why wasn't ther more inquiries into this?

do we know more than actual government officials?
the dossier was obtained via an ex spy, warrant issued without verification, trump towers even possibly wiretapped.... yet Muller had 0 (zero) Republicans even attempt to shut down the investigation.... so much so the then AG gracefully bowed out of the whole thing.


you're smart to pinpoint the warrant may not have been legal, yet these simple clue droplets seem to escape you...

now dont you think there are much much more that really went on between the trump campaign and possible foreign government debauchery...??


it's almost as if you really aren't smart enough to see what this is. Deep State isn't just democrats, it's both parties who don't really give a rats ass about R or D, only power. They control the back end of all this, they make sure nobody opens the wrong doors. Wild Conspiracy theory? it used to be, now, not so much. And they are so in your face, that folks like you seem to just smile and nod. One can only hope you pull you head from the dark stinky place it resided before it happens to your side and you cry big salty tears.

I'll address you if you can have a discussion without insults.

you have no point to make... so ad hominem and insults
and oh yea "deep state".... selective "deep state"...
when it seemed like it was smooth sailing for trump, you were on the "winning" bandwagon... I guess there weren't any "deep state " then...

“I think I’ve dealt with warrants where you just identify that your primary [confidential informant], or primary source, has subsources, and so long as the court is aware of that phenomenon and that you’re speaking to the reliability of the primary source, to my mind, that’s a totally legit warrant application,” he said.

So when did Steele ever claim this stuff was true? Last I checked Steele said it was unverified and never claimed any of it was true. So assuming we go with Comey and say this is normal ... the Primary source said this stuff may all be made up. So your reliable source says don't trust it, should he not have done exactly that?

What makes you think Republicans really care about Trump? Trump is not really one of them. In fact this research was started by Republicans and then passed on to Hillary.

well if it was unverified, then there should not have been a warrant issued. period.

it was based on a whim- a whim which may have turned out to be true.

this is what conservatives are trying to cleverly disguise...

You aren't new here, you know the "shadow government"/"Deep State"/"NWO", whatever you want to call it, has been discussed for eons. And in the past, it wasn't proven, just a theory. Today, it's kind of silly to deny it. I don't know why or how Trump was allowed to take this as far as he did, but it's clear, that wasn't supposed to happen.

When you look at all the factors against Trump, you (at least I) can't help but notice there are plenty of them and they are organized. I get you don't like him. I don't either, but he's the president. It baffles me that you and the other haters turn a blind eye to all this in your face corruption, just because it's against Trump. Jesus, in the past, this site would be all over stuff like this, but today, partisan blow holes seem to run the show.

Ahh no, they have never been with Trump. The rallies are people, not politicians. Many Republicans have been outspoken against Trump.

James B. Comey, the former F.B.I. director whose firing by Mr. Trump prompted the appointment of a special counsel to oversee the Justice Department’s Russia investigation, received a copy of the memos after Election Day from Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona.

www.nytimes.com...

No you are right, Republicans have had Trump's back 100%.

No disguising anything. Comey says the warrant was based on the trust of the source and their word. The source said the dossier was completely unverified and may all be lies. Those are the facts. I doubt the FBI told the court that their source did not even have any faith in this. It sounds like from Comey they said this is unverified but comes from a very trusted source, and left out the part about the trusted source saying they can't confirm a single thing.

...and now you understand why the Dems are fighting to keep the unredacted FISA warrant from being declassified. Because total declas will make it clear that this is exactly what happened, and Comey knowingly handed the FISA judge a turd and told him it was a baked potato.

then when fired gave classified information to a civillian to leak to a newspaper to get a special prosecutor to cover his tracks
he should do some actual hard time

well I guess we're all forked.

we have a potentially illegal investigation, potentially illegal dealings by trump's camp, and apparently no one in the government can see through the smoke screen and take action....

were no better than most 3rd world countries...

Again, if trump committed crimes he should be held accountable

But I don’t know what potential crimes his camp committed

The investigation was about them committing crimes colluding with Russians

None of them have been charged with that

Every charge has been process crimes or crimes well before the 2016 election

We shall see, but it looks like mueller is not going to find any crimes involving Russian collusion

These are the same crimes that just about every politician in Washington could be tried for

I have for two years been arguing corrupt intel and investigative agencies were a far bigger deal than any of these alleged individual crimes

Now it’s thrown right in our face;

They used unverified oppo research to spy on a campaign they didn’t like

And Schumer told us why politicians allow this; you don’t mess with the intelligentsia because they will find ways to get you

That is the real crime that needs investigated

Yet sadly the establishment including their media mouth pieces not only cover this up, but say anyone questioning it is hurting America

And many regular Americans eat that up because they don’t like trump

you'll know when I'm being sarcastic.

right now, the entire world is watching.
the country is in deep s.

it seems there are no winners.

trump goes down, we lose. trump overcomes all this, we lose.
2020 is going to be interesting to say the least. this is a new era of politics.

yes it was all about collusion. the pornstar thing is all fluff.

but let's see if there were more dealings than we were led on to believe.

if I were to weigh the severity of my government trying to establish a back channel with a foreign government vs. illegally justifying an investigation into said possible back channels, the scales would be virtually identical.

The simple truth is that the Republicans haven't done anything because most of them are corrupt and hate Trump just as much as the democrats.

I would say most republicans view trump as a useful tool to help maintain some control, and thats about as far as their like goes.

If they feel his popularity has fallen far enough they wont hesitate to impeach him when the democrats bring the stuff forward.

Also I think we may be forked cause the FBI appears to be far more corrupt than many people thought... (raiding the whistle blowers house despite the "protection" his status as a whistle blower is supposed to give him)

Then if the FBI is that far gone, god knows how far gone the other more private alphabet agencies are which should be leading all of us to quesiton many things in our govt.

I think if things continue down the toilet, it's really going to be upon We The People to force the change through never-ending protests.

We're gonna have to get out of our slumber, and our comfy chairs. For, who the hell else are we supposed to turn to??

Tough decisions ahead. I hope people are prepared to look into the mirror.
