I'd much prefer the discovery process to the full extent possible. That would be fun!

59. oh indeed...

Bring on the discovery! Let us go through each and every little bit of information about Nunes and his actions while serving as a representative of the people in Congress. We all know his time there will not pass muster and will open up a can of worms that he cannot afford to release. So, you know he won't do it. Of course, my thought is if he won't, then counter-sue for defamation due to false accusations and THEN start the discovery process. Hell, he may settle rather than risk the truth coming out. Ted should tag him for a few million just because he should...

And an intelligent one at that? I am sure there is a study somewhere about how stupid people get to reach high positions in life for which they are not prepared for and can never honor because they are unable to learn, it seems this administration has so many of them.

Brilliant...When I see Lieu being interviewed on TV I get an instant smile before he even opens his mouth, he is just brilliant.
