9. Trump will stand in the Dock of Justice next year.

Can not think of why a Military retiree or active Military can back this Orange Anus. Seriously. This POS has run out of rope.

12. They knew trump does not give a shit.

And obviously have him by the short hairs.

Putin has been dreaming about this since we helped drive them out.

He would have not done this with any president he did not own.

13. How devoid

of honor, ethics and humanity is the President and his party to be silent knowing what Russia has done.

This is a betrayal so complete that all elected and appointed government officials who knew should be fired,
impeached, tried and imprisoned.

I wonder how long it will take for a Republican to muster the courage to demand an investigation.

15. Comparing those sources

There is an important distinction in the wording.

Some say bounties were offered but some say bounties were paid. They are both heinous and sends this entire clusterfuck to a new level.

But is seems to me that the difference is twofold. Number one, bounties paid means there are actual casualties of US soldiers resulting from this policy. And number two, it would be the legal equivalent of the difference between conspiracy to commit murder versus actual murder.

16. "Well, Putin told me it's not true. He denied it strongly"

"But did you see those brown people trying to pull down a statue of Robert E. Lee"?

"it's disgusting you know, and we won't allow that in our country"

18. short answer

trump will just fire back as to how that is "fake news", his brain dead supporters will buy into that without even questioning anything, and it will effectively blow over like all of his other serious transgressions.

Lather rinse repeat.

19. Now that people are saying he didn't get briefed it is more important to ask him:


"Why did you let Putin put a bounty on US Troops?"


Because any answer illustrates either incompetence or culpability.

There is no good answer to this question.

It must be asked of trump:

"Why did you let Putin put a bounty on US Troops?"

20. Or should it be a more active form: Why is trump letting Putin put a bounty on US Troops?

Let that sink in.

Is he still allowing it to happen?

Can we ask Mitch McConnel:
"Why is trump letting Putin put a bounty on US Troops?"
