    "No Lia it will be the commencement for a very bloody civil war. You probably won't be advocating for Gun control after you see the Sleeping Giant awoken."

    Lovely sentiment. We have an ignorant, egocentric buffoon at the helm and you are saying we need to have a violent civil war incited by all the other disenfranchised buffoons out there. That's about it, right?

    No Lia it will be the commencement for a very bloody civil war. You probably won't be advocating for Gun control after you see the Sleeping Giant awoken.

    worf - said: "Russian collusion? What about Obama giving our tax money to the Cuban military? Thank you Trump for stopping this sickening thing."

    Please enlighten us with an amount of tax payer money spent.

    @Thid Barker
    "After 5 separate agencies investigating President Trump can not find ANY evidence of crimes, you think Mueller will?"

    Because the initial investigations were looking at Trump collusions with Russia of which there wasn't anything (those investigations are primarily focused on Flynn and Manafort who are not in trouble for the hacking stuff but for other issues with Russia, mostly for not reporting things they were required to).

    So why would Trump be in trouble now? Because after the general assertion that he was clear, he started meddling in the investigation of Flynn, so that's the thing that created a problem and this current investigation.

    @BYUalum
    "Many people including Comey have testified that there was NO collusion nor corruption between Trump's campaign and Russia, and yet, this whole mess drags on."

    When it comes to hacking, yes. However, others have different problems with Russia, most notably Flynn and Manafort. That part continues because there's something (they're also interested in Kushner). Sessions keeps forgetting meetings with Russia, and Trump tried to get the investigation closed.

    @Thid Barker
    "The Democrats claim President Trump is guilty of criminal activity but can't provide ANY evidence nor can they even say what crime he allegedly committed! "

    Potential crime? Obstruction of justice.
    Evidence? Pressured Comey to drop the investigation into Flynn. Fired Comey, saying it was because of the Russia investigation. Reportedly asked 3 other officials to try and drop the investigation.

    Now I'm not going to definitively claim whether he's guilty or not but there's enough there that an investigation is necessary and it's completely incorrect to say there's nothing there. There was most likely nothing that would get Trump in deep trouble (there's a bunch of things that would be more like "demonstrated poor judgment but it's not criminal" results) before this possible obstruction mess.

    So a bunch of conservatives are trashing Mueller, talking about the "DEEP STATE", and claiming this is a "WITCH HUNT". It's sad to see them all in lockstep but expected too. Trump can do no wrong in their eyes.

    It seems pathetic the day after that horrible shooting, Trump is back on his game of trashing Hillary Clinton. There's something psychologically sick about that.

    "There is an old saying that applies to Democrats: "put up or shut up"!

    Thid if you would step away from the Trump Koolaid trough long enough to see thats just what the Dems and the other 60+ percent of thinking people have done.

    They "PUT UP" Bob Mueller and his independent councel.

    It's not pretty Thid! The SS Trump is listing and Trump is scurrying around the tilting deck in a panic.

    By the way there is another saying that applies to Trump and his crew, "What are you trying to hide"?

    The GOP spent the better part of three decades in endless investigations against the Clintons so sorry not buying it Donald.

    The Democrats claim President Trump is guilty of criminal activity but can't provide ANY evidence nor can they even say what crime he allegedly committed! First it was "collusion" and after they spent nearly a year failing to find any evidence, now its "obstruction", again without any evidence! There is an old saying that applies to Democrats: "put up or shut up"!

    Many people including Comey have testified that there was NO collusion nor corruption between Trump's campaign and Russia, and yet, this whole mess drags on. It fits the narrative of the Dems to prolong this investigation to interfere with Trump's presidency and agenda. The American people are getting tired of wasting time and money on this baseless matter. The Dems and press have done everything possible to undermine Trump, his family, and anyone in his circle. I call it for what it is: sore losers with their own agenda to destroy Trump!

    I say throw out (fire any Obama holdovers) anyone in the Deep State who undermines the Presidency of the United States of America. We need at least four strong Republicans in each chamber of Congress to speak up and call out loud and clear to stop this madness. We are the laughing stock of the world to allow this to continue.

    Donald J. Trump was duly elected POTUS. Let him govern and do his job. God bless him, and God bless America!

    This is all just getting started. We're almost to the 6 month mark in this administration and Donald Trump is about to learn a lesson in power. Prior to this, he was able to bully and intimidate his way through most of his difficulties, but this is way outside his comfort zone. The investigation is in its initial stage and before this is over, we will know every little thing about the man who works in secrecy and protects his privacy with a zealousness that is leading him off the proverbial cliff.

    Follow the money. It may be that we will get to see Trump's tax returns regardless of how long his "tax audit" goes on. Investigation into obstruction leads to why does he not want any investigation into the election meddling by Russia and possible collusion by his campaign team. Also, why is he so afraid to criticize Vladimir Putin and Russian incursions into Eastern Europe and interference with the elections of other Western European nations.

    This appears to be a tightly spun web of international dealings between Trump and Russia where Trump's precarious position is extremely vulnerable. Although many explanations have been floated in the preceding months, we will have to wait for now

    I wish President Trump would stop wasting his time responding to articles in WAPO. They are amost always wrong. One of the most interesting statements from the now deposed FBI director, was that WAPO and the NYT were consistently printing incorrect information. Until those organizations start following the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, neither paper should be believed. Just let the special investigating take place. It will spend a lot of time and money and find nothing, because there is nothing to find.

    The entire Administration was designed to cover the Russian connection. What will happen when the Donald vetoes the new Russian sanctions?

    It is one of two things!

    A. Trump has something to hide and knows it is going to be revealed, and is in panic mode!

    B. Trump enjoys the chaos the investigations bring and enjoys the attention even if it is
    negative.

    If it is not that he is hiding something, keeping chaos alive for attention would mean he is much sicker mentally, than 60% of the people of the people believe him to be.

    When he goes off on something he really does come across as being ten years old. It's so sad that he has no strategy or thought process but to rant and carry on in true tantrum style.

    When President Trump decided to attack the intelligence communities and the FBI, he showed no respect for the ability of the FBI to defend itself. J. Edgar Hoover would not have lasted for 48 years as director if he had not learned how to defend the agency from political interference, and let's not forget that "deep throat" was #2 FBI man W. Mark Felt, and he brought President Nixon down. In his dealings with James Comey, Trump was outmanuevered by a man he thought he could intimidate.

    If his situation is so dire that he needs Vladimir Putin to be a character witness attacking Comey, I won't be surprised by whatever the investigations reveal.

    President Trump need only look in the mirror to find the culprit for his slow political unraveling!

    Trump's attorney told White House staff they didn't need to lawyer up... and so Pence is smart enough to know that leads to being thrown under a bus.

    How soon will the deals start? How wide and how deep?

    I will admit, the Tweets are so much fun, I can't wait for Trump-under-oath.
