This has been completely taken out of context and misrepresented. What he said
and what the media reports are quite different. Also, the selective
moral indignity of the Dems on this is so disingenuous. President Trump was
presented with a "what if" query. And he rightly said that, if the
situation was serious, he would share it with federal authorities to
investigate.On the other hand, where is the Dem outrage over the
real-life situation where a candidate (Hillary Clinton) and the DNC channeled
monies to fund a dirty Russian dossier? Why are they not complaining about that
real scenario? Real dirt... and not only welcomed but sought with millions of
dollars to dig up a dirty though fictitous story.
@ Sanefan"So if there is 'dirt' on an opponent, it
means they are 'dirty'; they have done something very wrong, immoral,
maybe illegal."Don't worry. Just because the dirt in the
Steele dossier that Russia was conspiring to interfere in our election and in
favor of Trump turned out to be true doesn't mean the rest of the stuff
about Trump is. It's just uncorroborated intel. Even Steele gives the
most salacious stuff about a 50/50 chance of being true.So
don't fret. It ISN'T the case that the existence of dirt means that
it's true. And when the source is someone we know may want to mess with
us, there's even more reason to reject it and let the FBI know, right?
Otherwise it could look like we were putting self before country and/or worse,
aiding an adversary's efforts to harm our country. Not good, eh?
n8ive american - Shelley, Idaho---Liberals, when you hold your own
politicians to the same standard that you set for ours, then we'll talk.---Over the past nearly 30 years that the Clintons have been on
the national political stage, there have been innumerable investigations,
innumerable claims of wrong doing.Bill Clinton had a continuing
investigation by Robert Ray in regard to the Whitewater affair, and Ken Starr
had such a far ranging field of inquiry in which the Monica Lewinsky affair came
to light. That affair had absolutely nothing to do with Whitewater in the least,
which was Ken Starr's original investigation subject, among others.With the threat of indictment and some number of months of negotiations,
Robert Ray obtained an admission from Bill Clinton of lying, had his
Attorney's license suspended.The Whitewater investigation
spanned 6 years, and cost $64M.Trump is whining about a two year
investigation, which led to no actual charges against him personally as yet.I'll also point out that the Whitewater scandal had nothing to do
with Bill Clinton's actions as President, but rather involved his private
business investments and the failure of the project.
As sad as Trump's presidency maybe; it is teaching America a lesson of how
corrupt and incompetent America's government has become and how
America's politicians are self serving party loyalist lacking the backbone,
smarts or patriotism to serve in their elected positions. America has to find
an alternative to our spoiled two party system of Tweedledee and Tweedledum.
Perhaps a parliamentary system, Americ's democracy is proving incapable of
bringing the best people into office. Even a classified lottery draft would
produce better results at a fraction of the cost.
You can really tell Trump supporters are reaching in thin air to defend the
indefensible with the following claims, assertions and conspiracy notions:"Stephanopoulos, who had worked on Hillary's campaign
team"Two things. First of all that assertion is not truthful,
sad (but predictable) to resort to that. Second of all, the President said what
he said. Does it matter who asked the question?"when you hold
your own politicians to the same standard "Using that logic, I
guess it will be okay for Democrats to coordinate with, accept propaganda from
or otherwise utilize the resources of foreign governments. Right? Not only
that, but a gropper, serial liar, self-serving and generally immoral Democrat is
acceptable? Come on that kind of challenge is a ridiculous hypothetical. "as being complicit in this giant conspiracy" (said of the
presumed results of AG Barr's witch hunt)Pedaling conspiracy
theories, especially this one, begs disbelieve. Such a conspiracy, involving
that many people is not only far fetched, but also just plan Tin Foil Hat Club
malarkey.Trumpworld lives in a universe of its own making, with its
own rules, logic and truth. Sad, truly sad.
So if there is “dirt” on an opponent, it means they are
“dirty”; they have done something very wrong, immoral, maybe
illegal. Who cares where knowledge of it comes from, it needs to be exposed.
That is the narrative the Dem/libs have advanced for 2 years. Now they are
outraged. Too funny.
Fortunately we live in a state with objective voters who have the ability to see
through the Media and the Democratic smoke that they continue to emit today. The IG and the Special Prosecutors assigned to sort through the
dishonest dealings of the Democrats and the DOJ under the Obama
Administration's watch will become public knowledge in the next few
weeks... Today we are seeing their diverting attempts, but that will dissipate
as the reports are released and I predict we will see panic speed spinning on
the information that will surface. While it will be interesting, it will also be
sad to observe. I predict that we will see things come to light that will make
us shake our heads in disbelief and disappointment.
The article did not give a full account of the interview by ABC's
Stephanopoulos, who had worked on Hillary's campaign team. A careful
reading of the interview would disclose intentional irony on the part of
President Trump, since all that kind of dirt against Trump was obtained in the
fashion being decried. And against Trump, it wasn't only listening, it was
acting in a conspiratorial manner. There was malfeasance on the part of
Obama's administration to not warn Trump about intelligences report of
possible Russian meddling. But there is simply no evidence of collusion by
Trump. Mueller and his team of Democratic supporters found none. Volume 2 of the
report shows how ticked they were with this result.Btw, even if GPS is a US
company, they did contract with a foreign national who received his information
from Russian sources and this information was requested and paid for by
Clinton's DNC. The Democrats own all of that hanky-panky.
Liberals, when you hold your own politicians to the same standard that you set
for ours, then we'll talk.
When the Clinton Foundation officials, Ohr - both Mr. and Mrs., Strozk, Page,
Comey, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, the FBI attorneys who faked the FISA
application, and countless others which will be exposed during the upcoming
investigation by AG Barr as being complicit in this giant conspiracy are held
accountable under the law then I would begin to take issue with the POTUS'
speculation about foreign sourced "dirt" and it's deployment.For anyone connected to the Federal Government - especially in positions of
responsibility such as Congress-member- to take umbrage with Mr. Trump's
comments is industrial strength hypocrisy, on steroids.
A quote - "A liberal...someone who looks ahead and not behind. someone who
welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare
of the people - their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their
civil rights, and other civil liberties - someone who believes we can break
through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if
that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say
I'm a"Lliberal"...John F Kennedy .I would like to hear what
he would have said about the current state of politics and our freedom.
n8ive american - Shelley, IdahoJune 13, 2019 9:35 p.m.@Golden Rules
- Okay, OK---So, you're ok with Hillary and Obama colluding
with foreigners to win an election?---If you are referring to
the Peele document, there are significant differences between what the DNC did
with that, and what has been alleged in regard to the Trump Campaign.The basic law that is at issue is Campaign Funding, and it is illegal for a
foreign national to contribute money or other things of value to a US Federal
(perhaps also state) Campaign.Receiving information which which the
campaign did not pay, is a form of donation. Hence a foreign national giving
dirt for free, is a donation to the Campaign.That is what is at
issue here.Requesting, communicating in some way that one would be
receptive to such an illegal donation, is in fact, a 'conspiracy to commit
a crime'. Or, listening to information, and then using that into one's
campaign, is taking an illegal donation.The candidate, as head of
his campaign organization, should take all measures possible to make sure no one
in the campaign, has contact with foreigners with the potential for donation,
whether monetary or things of value.
Every US senator and congressman who visits overseas discusses opposition
research or "dirt" against their opponent. Why is this even a story??
@WallE - Walla Walla, WAJune 14, 2019 8:29 a.m."In the Muller
Report Don Jr got off of a collusion charge because he was ignorant of what
constituted collusion"And yet so many still defend Hillary for
her " ignorance".I believe there's a story in the Bible
about a mote and a beam? The left refuse to see the beam in their own
When our President and his cabinet not only breaks the law on a regular basis
but flaunts it as well, our country is in unchartered waters. The sad thing is
not only that our President is a felon and he has staunch supporters but our
Congress has abdicated their responsibility to hold him accountable as clearly
laid out in the constitution. Meanwhile, our country is spending a trillion
dollars more a year than budgeted, our allies have turned our backs on our
leadership, dictators, tyrants and despots have their backs covered by our
President. What happened to our country?
Frankly, the best post on here was @Freiheit's comment abt the Prince of
Whales, the humor of which I fear was lost to many Trumplicans.@Mc:
"Conservatives are not (banned word)...In the media's zeal to report
everything about Trump in a critical way, they are helping him win again,
because we can see through it. I didn't vote for Trump in 2016, but I will
in 2020."Right--because the media criticizing a pres. for the
following, is an intelligent reason for wanting to re-elect him in the
future:*Refusing to condemn torch-bearing marchers in Charlottesville*Lying abt helping Don Jr. make up a false statement reg. the Trump Tower mtg
w/Russians.*Separating immigrant babies from parents & locking them up
in cages.*Siding w/Putin against U.S. intelligence agencies in front of

The defenses on this thread are treasonous. Who knew so many people who profess
to love this country, had such a profound conflation between country and
@mohokat & Copybook Headings,“But it's OK for the Clinton
campaign to buy dirt (provided by the Russians) from Fusion GPS; a British
entity.”You should both do a little investigation from sources
other than Fox News. If you did, you would known that Fusion GPS is a US company
based in DC founded by former journalists from the Wall Street Journal. It
started investigating Trump in 2015 at the behest of conservative interests who
were investigating Trump’s association with Russia. When Trump secured the
nomination the effort was stopped by the Republicans but was picked up by the
DNC.Fusion GPS hired Steele, a former British intelligence guy,
months after the DNC contract started. The Clinton campaign did not hire a
foreign agent and there is no evidence that it even knew Steele.Opposition research is a given in any political campaign — at every
level. Politics is dirty business. But to equate Clinton contracting with a US
company for opposition research on an opponent with Trump overtly stating he
would accept “dirt” on an opponent from an enemy country and in
violation of US law, is absurd. This is not semantics.Make America
great again and get this charlatan out.
Butch wax - , 00"This is probably the thing I like most about

It's terrifying that so many people have bought the narrative that hiring
Fusion GPS to conduct oppo research is the same as accepting aid from a hostile
foreign government to win an election. You guys have got to stop believing every
little thing you hear Sean Hannity say: he's a liar and a hypocrite.
He has now backtracked and said that he would report any dirt he received from
foreign entities. Still, ask a Trump supporter and they'll tell you he
shouldn't be bound by having to do that because he's so very smart and
our economy is soaring and all Americans are raking in big bucks. By the time
it's time for his supporters to vote for him again, they will probably be
convinced that he is a God fearing, genius who always behaves like a gentleman
and is an excellent role model for the grand kiddies, that Trump steaks are
simply scrum-diddly-umptious and that Trump U's football team could beat
Bama is they were only given a chance.
Are the Democrats doing it? Probably. I wasn't a Democrat in 2016. Now I am
not a republican. Is Trump being honest (and now in a way draining the swamp?)
Yup. But I don't have to like that he is bathing in it.
@RedShirtMIT You hand the information over to the FBI and let them analyze
it. Accepting information from a foreign entity is forbidden by US law. Please
do not look at this issue from a party political perspective. You will change
your mind as soon as the other side wins due to foreign influence. You would
also be inviting the election of a Manchurian candidate. The USA should not go
down that very dark path. In the end everyone will regret it, albeit too late.
I don't believe it is against the law to "listen." It is against
the law to unleash one's government assets to target a political opponent
when one is at the helm of the government. I love President Trump's
candor. He also has his political opponents in a corner of their own making:
express outrage at the President's candor while your own people PAY for
opposition research...I could go on, but, someday, the truth will prevail. Stay
@Kay: "My biggest fear is that because people won’t read the Mueller
Report for themselves they will believe the lies that Trump & his merry band
of spineless Yes men put out there."Trumplicans can't
afford to read the Mueller report--after all, Trump says it's an illegal
"witch hunt" & an "attempted coup" conducted by
"treasonous" people just out to bring him down. Trump told them months
ago not to believe "what you are hearing & what you are reading"
(unless it comes directly from him or Fox News, of course). And when the
"Golden Child" speaks, his fans must listen & obey. If the report
has anything neg. & damming to say abt the pres., they don't want to
hear it. After all, Trump claims he has the "absolute right"
to do just abt anything he wants, & now that he's got an AG willing to
do his bidding, a DO J policy that says he can't be charged while pres., a
Dem House that sees impeachment as a political win for Repubs, & a Repub
Senate that is terrified to go against the leader of their personality-cult
constituency--it appears that Trump can get away w/just abt anything he wants,
just like he has his whole life--from "bone spurs" to not paying
contractors to grabbing women.
There has never been a candidate that didn’t and wouldn’t listen to
dirt on their opponents, nor will there be. The difference is Hillary paid for
In the Muller Report Don Jr got off of a collusion charge because he was
ignorant of what constituted collusion. The best argument for the Trump
2015-2016 campaign against collusion is that they weren't organized enough
to collude with anyone. I don't think they understood the link between
Russian ban on adoptions and the sanctions of 2012.Bottom line is
that the President is the highest Executive Officer of this Great Nation. He
famously said he could shoot someone on New Yorks 5th Avenue and get away with
it. He's now said he would take valuable information from a foreign
Government "for free" in violation of our laws. In reality nothing is
"free" and I think we've seen this in the President's
deferential treatment to Putin. This should scare us all. Generally
I believe Trump supporters are good hard working people, but are troubled over
the lack of economic progress in the heart land. But if they think things will
get better if we ignore the laws that keep us stable, that is wrong. America
isn't Great if our laws are applied like they are in Venezuela.
Generally I've been a Trump supporter, in large part because he has been
great for the economy.However now, it's clear that Biden needs
to be our next president. Under him, cancer will be eliminated.As
important as the economy is, this has to take precedence.
In the article the only ones quoted were Trumps enemies. CNN people oh come
on, if he had exhaled and didn't speak they would say he was hiding
something. Pelosi is under fire to get rid of the President. You didn't
get any of the GOP leaders and how they feel. I listened, unlike most of those
who criticized him, and he said he would most likely look at it and if there was
anything bad he would report it to the FBI, and sadly some of the top FBI
people were Trumps worst enemies. We have a mess with some of the top people
and who do you trust right now. It needs to be cleaned out The democratic
party and most of the top "news" people are still aghast that Hillary
didn't win, and they won't give up until Trump is out of office. I
wonder what all of them are going to do when he is re elected again in 2020. I
will be voting for him again, because I don't want to live in a Socialist
country and that seems to be where the Leftists are trying to carry us. The
Left has no real leaders to take us any where, just fanatics who want to tear us
apart. What a sad sad situation. Trump will not sell himself , he is smarter
than that, but he will try and make all his foes go crazy
Bottom line. As divulged by the Mueller report the Republican Candidate did
not collude with foreigners during the 2016 election although the Republican
candidate was approached by foreigners to do so. The democratic
candidate not only colluded with foreigners but paid foreigners to collude.Where was the outrage then. Hypocrisy in its fullness.
Not a single politician, except Trump, would admit that they would take the dirt
from foreigners, but in reality they all would. It's funny how Trump gets
hammered for his proclivity to invent his own facts, but when he tells the
truth, he gets hammered even harder. What a country!
To "pwlohse" you are reading WAY too much into it. Imagine if Canada
gave a Presidential Candidate information that was obtained legally in Canada
that showed that the opposition candidate was involved in illegal activities.
Wouldn't you want that information to be spread and known before the
election?Since when is it a crime to have people give you
At least he was upfront with it. While others did the dirty,
underhanded and sneaky scandal that may put some in jail for their part.
"Trump is like an athlete who looks upon the rule book not as a guide to
proper play, but as a bunch of suggestions that can be ignored. It comes down to
a matter of respect for the way we Americans practice democracy."Remove "Trump" and substitute the DNC and the media. That would be
the truth. Trump actually doesn't need the help of foreign
governments. As in 2016 the media outrage at everything Trump says or does
gives him more support and is free campaign advertising for him. They still
haven't figured out that the more they criticize and make fun of him the
more popular he is, especially now that we have experienced some great policy
changes from the Obama era.When I see good policies that once had
bipartisan support, now rejected by democrats because Trump proposed it (border
wall), I see that they have a vendetta against him. Conservatives are not
dumb. We can figure this out. In the media's zeal to report everything
about Trump in a critical way, they are helping him win again, because we can
see through it.I didn't vote for Trump in 2016, but I will in
The tin foil liberals are at it again with fake outrage. Trump was responding to
a hypothetical question but Hillary and the dems actually bought and paid a fake
dossier created by foreign spies with ties to the Russians to influence the 2016
election. Everything the dems accused Trump of, they themselves are guilty! What
a group hypocrites
Trump makes a good point. It's important to talk to the "Prince of
Whales." You never know what important information those whales might have.
@ Astoria Jim"Trump is like an athlete who looks upon the rule
book not as a guide to proper play, but as a bunch of suggestions that can be
ignored."I think he looks upon the rule book as a guide to the
ethical limitations others place on themselves and then uses those limitations
to his advantage. Because he doesn't feel bound by them and sees those who
do as "losers." MAGA!
I’m so disappointed in the answers I’m reading here. It appears an
overwhelming number of people think that breaking the law is ok. People it is
against law to take information from a foreign source for the purpose of gain if
you are in the government. Why are the GOP ok with foreign interference?
The Hillary comparison is stupid. The dossier is not the same. The DNC
hired an American firm. They didn’t use it. It didn’t come out until
TMZ made it public. The FBI was given the information because it was so hot. My biggest fear is that because people won’t read the Mueller Report for
themselves they will believe the lies that Trump and his merry band of spineless
Yes men put out there. Wake up people!! What happened to the the GOP of
my early years? It’s become the party of Trumps lies and despots. So sad.
It is hard to believe that most Trump defenders don't care one whit if the
President is compromised with his Russian contacts. Or that the President used
stolen goods to win election. Or even took advantage of Russian propaganda to
win his office. None of that, which is both admitted and proven matters.Rather, Trump fans love the fact that he puts "liberals" and
"the media" into a frenzy of righteous indignation, seems their only joy
in this, yet another, example of Trump's true temperament.It is
a truly scary time for our democratic republic. It would appear that 40% +/- of
the population care only for a person/party and nothing for the country. Yet
these same people wrap themselves in the flag and call "the media" and
"liberals" unpatriotic while being completely comfortable with the
President taking clues and assistance from foreign countries. Not only foreign
but also our global enemies.
This whole “story” is nothing more than the latest grasp-at-straws
attempt by the leftists and lame-stream media in DC (and their RINO
sympathizers) to remove Pres. Trump from office. This has been going on since
2016, and I have never witnessed such a collective temper tantrum in my life!
Stop whining already, and move on! You’re just wasting all of our time!!
Re: "I am not okay with any person colluding with a foreign country . . .
and you shouldn't be either."That is, unless you're a
Democrat and you like Obama colluding with the Russians, Sanders colluding with
the Cubans, Omar and Tlaib colluding with Iran, or Hillary and Biden colluding
with the both the Russians and the Chinese.Then, it's OK.
The President of the USA admitted that he would be willing to commit a crime and
his supporters are OK with that. What if he announced that robbing banks was OK
too, as long as the money is used for his re-election campaign. Where do you go,
if the rule of law no longer applies?
@goldenrule"If you are bringing up Hillary Clinton in response
to Trump saying this, you are pretty much saying that you are okay with Trump
colluding with foreigners to win an election."***********Amazing... So what you are saying is "Don't pay any attention
to the fact that my candidate colluded with Foreign Nation Representatives and
the fact that she used the information fraudulently to get our own DOJ to spy on
Trump"... That doesn't matter. It doesn't fit the "I Hate
Trump" crusade.The fact is that Moeller and his 17 Pro Democrat
Prosecutor Staff found Trump NOT GUILTY of Collusion... No Proof... But as we will soon learn the Obama Administration and the Hillary campaign
were riddled with Collusion efforts.I'm pretty sure that the
reasoning that you espouse is why most American's don't trust the
media or Democratic Spin on the facts on virtually any issue today.
Once again Donald Trump endorses breaking US law in order to enhance his
personal power. And in the eyes of the world, he symbolizes today's
This is a microcosm of what is wrong with the Media and today's Democratic
Party. Clinton's former Communications Director (George Stephanopolous)
manufactures a "what if" theoretical scenario to which Trump answers
honestly (meaning that it's standard practice in National Politics) and
then Expands and Broadcasts the fictitious scenario characterizing Trump's
"what if" response as a "high crime".This has become
the Standard Operating Procedure for the far left and I am hoping that the
American People are not stupid enough to let these media anti-Trump haters and
the Democratic Party that they cheer for get away with it.Perhaps
the right question would have been to ask Trump if he would support his Campaign
reaching out to Foreign Country Reps (and paying them) to create phony
intelligence on a campaign opponent that is then fraudulently used as support to
get a FISA Warrant so that your campaign would be permitted to spy on the
candidate that was targeted by the phony intelligence or dossier.Or,
how about a Congressional Committee Intelligence Chairman attempting to take
incriminating information over the telephone on that same Candidate? Hypocritical and Unbelievable.
Media trying to cause contention again.Nothing inappropriate said in
this interview.More evidence of how many folks are so easily
manipulated by media.Get over it! Trump did not collude with
foreign countries to win the presidency.
What the President said about the question asked is totally rational. How the
media and the left are spinning it out of context and claiming outrage is what
is truly outrageous.
Naive American,I am not okay with any person colluding with a foreign
country to influence our elections and you shouldn't be either. No
candidate should receive help from any foreign person or group because they will
then owe favors if elected.
Trump keeps messing with the media and libs and it works every time, they come
unglued, but Obama and Clinton did no wrong...Trump keeps winning and the libs
keep losing. Lol!
@Golden Rules - Okay, OKJune 13, 2019 6:20 p.m."If you are
bringing up Hillary Clinton in response to Trump saying this, you are pretty
much saying that you are okay with Trump colluding with foreigners to win an
election."So, you're ok with Hillary and Obama colluding
with foreigners to win an election? Because that's basically what you just
said since it actually happened with the Democratic party. Why are you excusing
them but condemning Trump for considering the same thing. Read the
comments by Mike Richards. He sums it up perfectly.
Consider where Trump comes from: The New York real estate business, where any
rumor about a competitor, no matter how untrue, was seized upon and
disseminated. Forget that the foreign actor might have reason to lie...the other
candidate might propose sanctions against their country.Trump is like an
athlete who looks upon the rule book not as a guide to proper play, but as a
bunch of suggestions that can be ignored. It comes down to a matter of respect
for the way we Americans practice democracy.
I agree with what President Trump tweeted today: "I meet and talk to
'foreign governments' every day. I just met with the Queen of England
(U.K.), the Prince of Whales, the P.M. of the United Kingdom, the P.M. of
Ireland, the President of France and the President of Poland. We talked about
'Everything!' ""Should I immediately call the FBI
about these calls and meetings? How ridiculous!
I think the question should be how is the information obtained and then used?
This is politics people, someone always has dirt on someone, it's the
nature of the beast. If the information was obtained illegally, or manufactured
with no veracity (a worse situation that seems to be infecting politics today)
it should be summarily dismissed. If it was obtained by a foreign
government and is being used to manipulate elections to the benefit of that
foreign nation it should also be dismissed (regardless which candidate it might
benefit). This is a microcosm of how partisanship and tribalism have superseded
patriotism. The most poignant paradox of this is the characters that always
chant "country above party" but will only entertain ideas that confirm
their biases.The comical part of this is the faux outrage from media
and politicians who have been practicing digging up and manufacturing dirt on
political opponents (including from foreign sources) since the foundations of
the Republic. But for a president to just come out and say it?! Preposterous!
Shaun, where have you been. The really hilarious irony is the Dems outrage over
Trump making a statement about doing something that they actually did. The
whole false Russia collusion narrative was based on the Dems using info from a
foreign government/spy to try and bring down Trump. Now they are offended by
the idea of using info obtained through foreign sources against an opponent.
This is typical of the Dems. We saw the same thing happen with the "nuclear
option." They engage in dirty politics and then seem surprised when the
same tactics are used against them.
I just don't see how merely hearing what anyone has to say could possibly
be offensive. It is certainly not a crime. The follow-on questions would be
"Was the information obtained legally ?" Even then, the offense is by
the entity breaking the law, not the party merely hearing the information.The Democrats are going to have to get over their mock outrage and
recognize that Trump won because we are all tired of the slide into socialism.
I am not defending Trump, but what if the media got a hold of this type of
information? Would they "listen", like Trump said he would, or would
they ignore it? I have my suspicions.
@mike richards Where did you get all this information and how do you
know it is true and correct?
Oh the horror! Can you imagine anyone wanting to hear what the DNC was trying
to do, even if the news of that incident came from another country? For that
matter, why would anyone running for office trust the FBI or anyone who has been
involved in the the Mueller investigation, i.e., the FBI, the CIA, the DNC, the
FISA Court, and the Media? They excused Hillary for having an illegal email
server that contained secret and top secret documents because they didn't
think that she meant to break the law. The DNC paid to have a dossier
fabricated and then the FBI, through Comey presented that unverified dossier to
the FISA Court as evidence that a warrant was necessary. Would YOU go to the
FBI? Would YOU trust the CIA? Would YOU talk to the Media?What
we've learned is that those who pretend shock are hypocrites. They pretend
that the FBI acted properly and that the CIA acted properly and that the Media
acted properly and that the DNC acted properly and that Mueller acted properly -
even though his report found nothing tht linked Trump to Russia.The
horror is that half of America still trusts the Media.
If you are bringing up Hillary Clinton in response to Trump saying this, you are
pretty much saying that you are okay with Trump colluding with foreigners to win
This is probably the thing I like most about President Trump, right or wrong he
will give you an answer. Just love how the dems are running just outraged about
this. Trumps probably getting a good laugh at how easily the dems are triggered,
I know I've had a good laugh today.
Trump responds but never says he would not collude with foreign governments
against an American.
