    Snapper, call a wambulance. The never Trumper, Rosenstein also worked on the letter. It is time for you and others suffering forms of TDS to move on and accept it. I understand the nothing burger has left some very hungry.

    Sure, we'll move on...and so will Trump. Move on to this:

    In New York:
    • The state attorney general subpoenaed two banks this week for financial records relating to several Trump Organization projects, the New York Times reported.
    • Federal prosecutors are still investigating campaign-finance violations within Trump's campaign even after his former attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to violations stemming from hush money payments to women who alleged affairs with Trump. Cohen has said he made the payments at Trump’s direction.Cohen said he’s been in “constant contact” with federal prosecutors in New York about other investigations, but wouldn’t elaborate.
    • Trump’s inaugural committee was subpoenaed in February as part of an investigation into the group’s fundraising activities.
    • State authorities in New York have been investigating Trump's private foundation.


    In Washington and Maryland:
    • Attorneys general in Maryland and the District of Columbia filed a lawsuit alleging Trump violated the Constitution's Emolument's clause, which bans gifts and payments from foreign governments. The case could allow officials some insight into Trump's business dealings and potential conflicts of interests.


    In Congress:
    • Lawmakers are just getting started. The Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee opened a sweeping investigation this month into Trump and his associates, requesting documents from 81 "agencies, entities, and individuals" connected to the administration and Trump's private businesses.
    • The House Oversight Committee is also examining a wide array of topics, including Trump's communications with Russian President Vladimir Putin, White House efforts in a nuclear deal with Saudi Arabia, whether Trump played any part in securing top-secret security clearances for members of his family and whether Trump violated the Constitution by accepting profits from foreign governments. The Committee welcomed Cohen earlier this month, then laid out an investigative road map that could include other Trump Organization employees.
    • The House Intelligence Committee is expanding its own investigation of Russian election interference.
    Or did you forget that Trump isn't hardly out of the woods yet? That's what I call TDS. Well, that and inability to read.

    Mueller's report did not exonerate Trump. But Trump, being the semi-literate that he is, claimed that it did.

    Go ahead and let your guard down, it's only just begun.

    Meanwhile.... no president with a war or a good economy has lost re-election since before FDR. Since FDR the only presidents too lose re-election had either peace and/or a bad economy. Given that the current crop of Dem candidates is one shade lighter than Soviet Red and they all seem hellbent on dragging each other further and further left despite more votes in 16 going to center-right than center-left candidates which will force moderates to Trump for economic reasons. Given his approval among LIKELY voters is in the high 40's which historically means 70% chance of re-election... So you might want to hold on....

    Oh this is certainly the Dem's election to lose (again), but....

    Maybe the Dem's won't put up such a polarizing candidate this time.
    Maybe the Dem's will actually engage the unwashed masses of the heartland instead of mostly rubbing elbows in friendly territory with coastal liberals.
    Maybe people who voted for him in 2016 simply to avoid Clinton will rethink their vote based on his behavior of the past 2 years. Farmers, for example.
    Maybe his non-stop cozying up to dictators while disparaging dead American war heroes will put off undecided votes.
    Maybe all the effort he's put into undermining the economy will come back to haunt him before 2020. Those tariffs for example were brilliant.
    Maybe he'll be undone by the half dozen or so other investigations that are still ongoing...especially state ones that he can't obstruct, interfere with or pardon the inevitable guilty parties of.
    Maybe he'll have a mental breakdown due to his advanced age combined with his glaringly obvious sociopathic personality.
    Hell, maybe he'll have a massive blowout from all that greasy fast food, lack of meaningful exercise and excruciating stress from having to actually work occasionally, while fending off multiple ongoing investigations.

    tl;dr Lot of possibilities before 2020 comes around and time isn't exactly on his side.

    It is not I that requires a 'wambulance' (whatever one of them may be) but someone who continually swallows every lie that a fraudster supported by Muscovite money spills to them. Not concluded is not the same as not guilty and clearly Barr took away the obstruction of justice investigation from Mueller and decided himself - how odd as he wrote a paper about precisely that before Trumpkin chose him as a new AG.

    I will be clear now; there was evident 'collusion', Trumpkin was compromised from the start, his campaign received Muscovite money via the NRA, he tried to hide everything. He is a crook, a traitor and a fraud and belongs in prison.

    He is what he is. He’s good for the economy, he’s good for employment rates, he’s good with Israel, gets the US better trade deals etc. etc.
    So at this time you may want to dial one of these up.

    Trump is the second coming of Christ, Pompeo can attest to that. And Trump is not guilty of nothing, so where does it leave all of us?

    At my wits end, what is a wambulance?

    Why am i not surprised. Wasn't this fake campaign by the opposition so obvious. Anyway, its a free country and this means something for everyone.

    I had a conversation with Pari in 2016 and he was saying the same thing about the CIA. It made me feel afraid.

    If the guardians of security & justice aren't above suspicion then what is to be done.

    That is where the treason to the country lies, partisanship where neutrality should live.
    How to do it

    With some countries you have this with the forces and they end up being some one's personal militia instead of serving the country.

    Yep this is how a relative of mine describes Trump in a nutshell

    Course repeating that to the other half of your country will likely land one in hot water : D

    Keep drinking the unreality juice until you end up in a bankrupt dictatorship and they come for you because you complained.

    The world isn't buying into this scam release by Barr. When will the full report be released?

    Likely never because the US has come together to wave their flag and limit damage to their psychopath president.

    The world neither needs nor deserves to know that report.

    Their house. Their rules. The US is neither obligated to nor care what the rest of the world thinks of their internal politics.

    Knowing the truth is very important to the rest of the world because US credibiility depends a lot on what the rest of the world thinks. Trump's latest illegal move on stealing the Golan from Syria and awarding it to Russia is not being accepted by the rest of the world at the UN, including many of the US's allies. And in addition to that, the US needs the world to side with them on the Venezuela issue, as Russia has now put war planes and troops in Venezuela, at Maduro's request.

    The world is becoming a much different place now as China and Russia move in to take the US's place.

    This particular issue is an example of the US rallying around the flag and finding that protecting their corrupt president is more important than internal two party politics.

    It's their house but the world isn't going to continue to play by US rules. And military power is useless against Nuclear armed powers, due to MAD. (mutually assured destruction) That's a factor that has saved the world from allout world war being started by the US and it will continue to keep us safe.

    Thanks for your interest in my comments!
