Trump says Dems 'made up' Russian story

Source: AP

WASHINGTON (AP) The Latest on a congressional inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election (all times local):

7 a.m.

President Donald Trump is accusing Democrats of fabricating allegations of election interference against Russia and creating more "fake news."

His tweets came just hours before a congressional hearing on Russia. The House Intelligence Committee will hear from FBI Director James Comey on whether U.S. officials believe Russia tried to bolster Trump's chances in the election and if there were any connections between Moscow and Trump's campaign aides.

Trump tweeted Monday: "The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!"

1. He is a sick man.

Sooner or later he will need to be removed from office. I think republicans already know this. They are going to impeach him or remove him under the 25th Amendment.

23. Not sure about that...

They would be MUCH happier with Pence at POTUS. So would the rank and file. It would help with the midterms which are shaping up to me a disaster.

24. Newtown

I had this discussion here and with my democratic friends AND my republican friends and inlaws.

BOTH sides thought that Newtown was the the last straw and there would be some kind of legislation passed for firearms,

I told everyone it wasn't happening, because Rs are THAT far gone.

Nothing happened.

Unless we have actual video of Putin and 45 saying it word for word to each other, Rs WILL muddle it up, use false equivilencies, etc and do all that they can to avoid admitting they are wrong.

They are THAT far gone.

nothing will." It didn't. Nothing will.

26. Trump's narcissism is so thick they won't get him out of there w/out full Impeachment

Trump will leave in one of three ways:

1) His term ends. I do not see him winning in 2020. Even if he gets a 9/11 event to rally around, he's doomed. He is so repugnant and unlikable, no amount of patriotism and jingoistic terror will save his re-election hopes. W, could be in his own way, charming and likable for enough Americans, Trump has none of that limited charisma.

2) He is Impeached by the House and convicted by the Senate. Maybe this happens before the 2018 mid-terms, to which case the Republicans will do it, or maybe after the Mid-Terms and the Republicans get their teeth kicked in. Both are doubtful to me right now. The GOP is clearly circling the wagons around Trump. Look how much water Gowdy is carrying today in Comey's hearing. He's flopping like a fish to avoid talking about Russia, hacking and wiretapping. No the GOP is very much in a protectionist mode.

As for flipping Congress in 2018, that is not likely. There are 34 Senate seats up, 23 of them are Democratic incumbents. Both independent Senators are up (Sanders and King), so call that 25 liberal seats. There are only two "leans R" elections up (Flake AZ, and Heller NV) that could be possible Democratic upsets, but there are quite a few weak Democrats defending: Nelson of FL, Donnelly of IN, McCaskell of MO, Tester of MT, Heitkamp of ND, Brown of OH, Manchin WV, and Baldwin of WI. That's 8 seats that are going to need a lot of support to hold on to.

And of course the House is a mess thanks to gerrymandering in almost all of the 50 states. Flipping the House will be nearly impossible until after the 2020 Senate and a Democratic wave of Governors between now and then.

3) His ego tires of the abuse and he quits on some made up bullshit that doesn't even make sense to him. He has a history of saying "fuck it" and walking away.

The GOP may be much happier with Pence as POTUS, but the odds they will get that are pretty slim unless Trump is caught, red handed, committing a crime while in office. A crime so heinous that even republican foot soldiers are appalled. Given how morally bankrupt they are, I can't hazard a guess what crime that could be.

27. You forgot the 4th way.

He could die in office.....he certainly isn't the healthiest man to hold that office...living off McDonald's and 3 or 4 hours sleep a night ain't good for the body.

28. Well yeah, I suppose.

It is not my first thought to wish death upon any other person, even if they are against me and what I believe in.

His health and age are pointing at a disastrous conclusion for his life, that is true. I am suddenly reminded of all the concern trolling over Clinton in '92 when he took office and how "fat" he was. There was all these donut jokes and he started jogging because he felt self-conscious (and it was a media ploy) about it. All of that went away when he did shed a few pounds.

Were did all that go with Trump?

W was pretty sporty, if clumsy to the point of near-death, and Obama was/is very fit.

I suppose this is, yet more, hypocrisy of the Right. They can be fat, disgusting slobs all they want, but if a liberal is? Endless harping about it.

29. It isn't my first thought either...but it is a possiblity...

we have had other President's die if office due to health issues...FDR comes to mind first.

Yes, I remember all the hand-wringing about Clinton and the donut jokes and he jogs to McDonalds. But even still, Clinton was 30 years younger than Cheeto and did something about it.

Republican hypocrisy is truly mind-boggling. They went after FLOTUS Michelle Obama for trying to encourage healthier eating and exercising.

33. Congress can get him to resign with one simple vote

Threaten to force the release of his tax returns.

A few GOP reps vote with the Democrats and he is doomed. If offered a chance to resign vs having those returns made public, and he will quit on whatever day they suggest.

15. I don't know. He's made it to 70 eating bad food and working himself up to a rage.

Too mean to die, as the old saying goes.

I don't believe he is healthy though and I figure he is on a lot of medicines.

I don't much care about his weight, thin or not, he'd still be an asshole - and full of shit.

17. Since you like to "play games" there sexual predator

Lets have another election and do what the people of Netherlands did.

They had a paper ballot printed with all of the candidates and red pen and they voted, and they "hand counted all" of the ballots right then and there------------------simple and cheap, and "no" interference by your oligarchy cronies inside Russia, and they the Dutch took down a racist bigot.

And while your at it release your tax returns---------------simple, but then again your like chicken s**t


And as for the Electoral College , has far as I am concerned, they were given the "opportunity" to "not" put you in office, but they normalized a psychopath such as yourself, and they condoned a sexual predator to be placed over the majority of 65 million that voted against you, and let's include the 10 million that voted for the other candidates, you are a fucking loser

just because he's so ridiculously, stupidly bellicose and blatant with his bald-faced lying.

There are some strong, sycophantic controllers (Bannon) to sort of harness the Orange toddler, while pushing fascist agendas. It's working.



Wish there was an easy route to get them all out of there, really I do.
